  1. You can never trust Labour to tell the truth and especially when it is about saving lives, David Clark and Jacinda Ardern made a meal out of the Cancer plan with the 60 million dollar that was there to help save lives with new drugs. The 60 million to Pharmac for Cancer drugs now turns out to be also for other illnesses so the cancer share is down graded with on top that Pharmac announced that they won’t make the decision on what drugs they will purchase until April 202o. These Cancer drugs that could save lives has cost as many as 200 lives already and experts believe that by April there is the possibility of 100 more lives that could be lost.

    • I think after all these years, a cure for cancer is available.
      Pharma companies make a fortune selling placebos to the desperate.
      More money is spent on the causes of cancer.
      They won’t jeopardize a lucrative money stream.
      Their hypocritical negligence is endemic.

    • Yet the health expenditure on women’s health versus men’s is still two to one. The number of men dying from prostate cancer is more than cervical and breast cancer combined and let’s not even talk about the suicide statistics. Why does this country’s government hate men so much?

      • Men are disposable.
        History has shown this over and over.
        Equality was supposed to stop this, alas equality is being cherry picked.
        There are more women on earth than men. 52-48%.

        • Men have built the infrastructure of this country, risked their lives in doing so, They keep the electricity system going, the water flowing, are the backbone of our food production and built safe havens for us to live. Wait till any of these major life necessities fail and watch the cowards squeal for help from those practical men. In contrast lefty academics would not be missed if the whole of the humanities departments were wiped off the face of the earth.

  2. Posted late last night.
    More religious problems, but it must not be named.
    Being in Australia he probably had read the very religious “manifesto” of Brenton Tarrant to read? ? 🙁

    A former Canberra journalist who allegedly made threats to behead Christians as a reprisal for the Christchurch massacre was granted bail on Wednesday. ….
    …. “I’m going to kill every single one of you dog polytheist c—-,” a post he allegedly wrote read. ….
    …. ordered a scimitar from Pakistan and had sharpened it before making threats to behead Christians in his front yard. ….
    …. applied for bail twice and had the applications rejected by two magistrates for fear he would commit further offences. ….
    “completely preoccupied by extreme religious views” and posed a danger to the community. ….
    …. extreme religious beliefs had been “ongoing and fixated” for a period of two years ….
    …. released him on bail but ordered he must reside with the two family friends, must accept supervision, he must not approach the Canberra House of Prayer and he cannot use social media. ….
    …. Mr Waugh’s matter will return to court in February next year.

    What has this guy been reading? ?

    He seems to be seeking reprisals on Brenton Tarrant’s followers. ? 🙁

    Who supplies such inspiring writings, and will the defendant continue reading them while out on bail with a scimitar or some such equivalent.

  3. So has Peters accepted Chinese money for horses?

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12264368

    TRANSCRIPT OF FINAL MINUTES OF CALL BETWEEN HERALD REPORTER MATT NIPPERT AND DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER WINSTON PETERS:

    MN: So, to the best of your knowledge, New Zealand First have not talked with Lang about him donating? Is that what you’re saying?
    WP: [Pause] Well, look, if a member of my party was at the racecourse one day, interpreted a conversation with him it’s quite possible. But to the best of my knowledge the course on which you’re going at the moment is fruitless: We have not received any money from the Wolf, as I know him as.
    MN: I guess the outstanding question remains is: If this donation were offered by him, would you accept it?
    WP: An outstanding question? Who do you think you’re talking to? You’re going to have a hypothetical, and put it to me as an outstanding question? Bulldust mate. Where do you get off? Where do you get off with that arrogant attitude? “The question remains”. For you?
    MN: He says he’s considering donating to NZ First. Would you accept the donation? It’s pretty simple.
    WP: You’re going to slide mate, from facts to bullshit. Right? You’re not going to be able to slide from facts, with a modicum of detail, to flat-out bullshit and speculation.
    MN: So you would take the money? Or you wouldn’t?
    WP: Get a brain mate. That’s not the alternative answer, is it?
    MN: It’s a very straightforward question, Winston.
    WP: It’s not a straightforward question. It’s some silly, smart-arse question by somebody who should know a whole lot better.
    MN: I’m just trying to figure out where this is going.
    WP: It’s not going anywhere, because it started nowhere. It’s built on the premise you’re going to write an article, based on nothing. Because you’ve got a charade of details you’re going to put out there. That’s what it’s based on.
    MN: It’s based on Mr Lang telling me he was planning to donate to you.
    WP: Good god, what a flimsy peg you’re trying to hang your story on. God.
    MN: Well, I’ll flick it to my editors and see if they agree with me.
    WP: They probably will, the bloody morons.
    MN: Winston, are you hanging up on me?
    [CALL TERMINATED BY WP]

    So has NZ First found another devious way to take Chinese donations?
    Is Peters going to sell them a racecourse in Auckland?

    Now we need the trade so we can get rid of some horses but a what cost?

  4. The latest YSB Poll asks if we think the Labour Camps Sexual Predator will get name suppression. I ticked Yes he will because that is the way the judiciary rolls these days.

    He should be named and shamed though.

    • You’d hope. Unfortunately, the media will control what is said and what New Zealand sees. They’ve already started repeating the message of blaming the victims the vile lawyer put out there. And I’d bet dollars to pig shite that lefties are supporting it. Any bets that Stephieboy and Psycho are all ra-ra-ra about the case being swept away from the public eye and trying to belittle sexual assault because it would harm their politics?

      Some of the Andrew Bolt and Peta Credlin monologues on Brexit have reached the UK via Youtube and the Poms ( well the Brexiteers) are cheering very loudly. They are amazed such clarity of thought is coming from Sky News. In the UK Sky is like out TV1 & 3 –all on the left.

        • “What do we do now?” Let’s see, how about a war on the farming community, maybe a tribute to Mugabe, and put Woods and Davidson as the face of the ” re calibrated ” Kiwibuild? How proud Labour supporters must be. I am continuously dumbfounded how this Govt ever came to exist.

      • We know he’s biased, but when they print this crap:

        He talks a lot about reporting on “real people”. Nowadays, he says, his journalism is about “finding emotional connection… it’s a beautiful thing to get to that point. I know I am getting into airy-fairy territory here now, but that human connection, a more caring form of journalism is where I am trying to go… A more caring, empathetic, real, authentic, caring stories.”

        It will be hard for the media party to deny being un-objective. Shouldn’t journalism be about the facts?

  7. Dave Mann made a good point in the Cindy’s Mate Still Here thread.

    This is not incompetence. It is blatant corruption.

    We’ve been far too polite about what Jacinda Ardern and her government are doing and laughing about their perceived incompetence. But it’s a good point; they’re not incompetent. They’re dangerously competent and bloody corrupt.

    It’s time to change the language and use corrupt, rather than incompetent to describe them.

    • I think we can all agree , we were blindsided, a classic dismantle and re install of a system designed around perceived ineptness.
      The illusion, is their Achilles heal.
      Once the mask is lifted, which is happening, the truth will reveal itself.
      We are heading for some pretty tough times judging by the rumblings of dissent we are witnessing.
      By election time, life will not be a bed of roses.
      The disruption will be felt by all.

  9. Didn’t she actually have an incident when she was a backbencher? I vaguely recall reading something like that somewhere, but like everything negative has been very cleanly scrubbed. The job takes a toll on all politicians, they age visibly – but I’ve never seen it happen this quickly – she looks haggard and skeletal.

    I should feel sorry for her, but fuck it. She’s far too dishonest and venal to garner any sympathy from me.

  10. “Gen Ident given long jail sentences for upholding the law, opposing invaders”
    1 minute 18 secs.
    https://d.tube/#!/v/vladtepesblog/QmXyQiYY2aXRUhkmivUtkAyHNnBdS5XLjyDaS9aUs9m2Ti

    Think on the “heinous” words used to paint the picture from one side of the political scene, and also see that it is just a political protest showing up the ineptness of the French government.

    Their sentence from the UN Migration Pact via Macron’s judiciary is portrayed as appropriate.
    It is designed to break ‘Gen Ident’ and to stop any further debate and discussions.

  11. A rhyming viewer takes me to task – but is she right?
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/opinion/115613914/a-rhyming-viewer-takes-me-to-task–but-is-she-right

    “OPINION: When you park yourself on TV and radio most days, it’s fair to say people either like or loathe you.

    And on The AM Show we get feedback by the second. I’ve been banned from looking at it in case I decide to engage, but some comes via the snail mail trail and they can’t restrict my access to that.

    Yesterday I got a letter from an 88-year-old lady, Marie. It started like this:

    Theme: Bigots

    “Basically, Marie was furious with an attack we had made on Labour’s record in office. I had said they’re the least effective Government in 30 years; Mark Richardson probably went further.”

    • Will just pick up on the first one:
      1. Opening up Pike River mine. Nats would have protected big business with a huge concrete pour. (True)
      Really – would think that the $37 million spent so far, which has achieved nothing, has been spread around a lot further than just some more concrete, which I am not sure they even had too. A complete waste of money.

  16. Just been on kiwiblog where I posted this: Thanks Winston, you fucked up piece of shit. I bet you didn’t think it would get this bad when you mouthed off about how capitalism had failed us when you selected the useless twats that are destroying our country.

    In response to this: https://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2019/09/theyve_spent_the_next_10_years_already_on_rail.html/comment-page-1?unapproved=2552907&moderation-hash=ca527cd2db0bfc7abd874de436bc44b4#comment-2552907

    This is one person whose death cannot come quickly enough. I don’t despise any of the others the way I despise Winston Peters. And that is because he is dishonest and underhand and has single-handed destroyed New Zealand’s economy by selecting a bunch of misfits he knew he could easily manipulate.

      Well it should. The insurance companies are raising premiums & excesses as a response.

        Didn’t we put up fences and portacoms yesterday? well yes.
        No fences here and porta coms jacked up ready to be loaded onto a trailer.

        Did another job right in Welcome Bay. Had a container but the locals managed to break in and steal the tools.

        Containers are no guarantee but they are better than nothing. Alarn the things and install camera’s as well.
