The Opposition needs to beat Labour senseless with all the latest balls-ups and lies. Shove it in their Marxist faces. Their own supporters are starting to turn on her. Hooray! Suckers.

Burglary and robbery are very bad crimes, as they often affect our own homes.
The penalties need to be VERY high.
Not only that but we also pay for it with very high insurance premiums!

Nothing is ever what it seems. You liked that nice kady from Ihumato? Just another commy mouthpiece it seems.

Dear Supporter,
You’re funding a left-wing Ihumātao campaign group… whether you like it or not!

ActionStation logo

I almost can’t believe I’m writing this. After a tip-off and an official information request, we can now reveal that ActionStation, a left-wing campaign group with close connections to Labour and the Greens, has been receiving taxpayer funding, including a recent $15,000 grant from Netsafe.

ActionStation are as political as it gets. They describe themselves as a “campaign organisation” with “a focus on shifting public opinion and driving the media agenda in order to influence political decisions”. Their vision statement advocates for, among many things, a universal basic income, collective bargaining, new taxes, and increased taxpayer funding for political parties.

The organisation was founded by former Green Party staffers and help out Labour and the Greens during elections. They are even giving fuel vouchers to Ihumātao protestors and financially supporting beneficiaries to move into the campsite!

On Friday we revealed that the group has been receiving taxpayer money to tell New Zealanders how to have “better, safer and more productive conversations online around Māori, refugees, NZ history and Tiriti”. Read more here https://www.taxpayers.org.nz/action_station?e=3fc69b7041f95006cb4b5d26c648ac37&utm_source=taxpayers&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=190906_tu_actionstation_ask&n=2.

This is despite Netsafe’s claims on its website that it does not fund political organisations.

Imagine if it was reported that your humble Taxpayers’ Union received a taxpayer handout. The media and the left would go absolutely wild – and rightly so!

Unlike our opponents, the Taxpayers’ Union doesn’t have the cheek to apply for or take taxpayer funding. We exist because of voluntary contributions from people like you.
Will you pitch in so we can push back against taxpayer-funded lobby groups likes ActionStation?

The ActionStation grant is bad, but it’s not completely unique. Groups like Oxfam and Amnesty International also take government grants, propping up their bottom lines so they can continue operations that include political lobbying.

Our independence is unique. But we need your support to ensure a taxpayer voice can compete with well-funded activists on the left.

She was the pretty face of the action, because the rest of them were too ugly to bring out in public. Because of their belief, dumb or just ugly!
It’s just like Labour. They have pretty Jacinda as the mouth piece and they have the dumb and ugly hiding behind her!

Apparently the complainants have been to the police.

An Official Information Act request was lodged by Newstalk ZB to police on July 5 asking several questions relating to the release of the Francis Report on May 21 this year.

The following are the questions and the police response.

• Have there been any complaints with the police from Parliament after the urging of Speaker Trevor Mallard for the aggrieved to do so? Yes two complaints have been received by Wellington Police District.

• What is the nature of these complaints? Both allege indecent assault.

• Are the police actively investigating? Yes.

&bulll; Are charges pending? The investigation is in the early stages and no charges have been considered yet.

• What is the nature of the charges? Not applicable, no charges have been considered yet.

• Does the investigation, if there is one, involve more than one person? There are two complaints and each involves different victims, witnesses and alleged offenders.

• Have interviews been done with the alleged offenders? No. the investigation has not reached that point yet.

• Does the person still work at Parliament? The alleged offender from the first complaint no longer works at Parliament. Police declined to answer this question in regards to the alleged offender in the second complaint due to Section 6 (c) of the Official Information Act 1982 as it will prejudice the maintenance of the law, including the prevention, investigation, and detection of offences, the right to a fair trial.

The answers to the questions were a long time coming.

By law Official Information Act requests should be answered within 20 working days, unless an extension is sought. It was 36 working days after the request was lodged before answers were received even though no extension had been sought. Initially, a senior advisor for Ministerial Services with the police said the answers would be given several weeks earlier. Then she said it was being “reviewed.” When asked why she said, “everything gets reviewed, just for quality.”

Quality control or plain obstruction?
You decide!

The words your looking for are obfiscation, a snow job and bury it…..

The police are now going to have to be upfront, as a news article based on interviews with the alleged victim cannot be buried, else it will look like the police are not willing to investigate crime involving the governing party’s members.

To most people that is called corruption and should be career ending Mr Police Commissioner. Funny, how yesterday on RNZ, I heard Police HQ referred to as “Bullshit Palace”!

When has police action on anything Labour related NOT taken long? Going back as far as the Pledge Card rort, there hasn’t been a quick investigation I can remember. They drag their heels to get their paymasters off.

Last night I was reading KB re: the spot of bother that Jacinda and the Labour Party are in. Oh dear never mind!

However, while looking at at KB, Maggy W had posted a link to TDB and a blog post by Chris Trotter, suggesting Jacinda has 24 hours to look decisive (that’ll be a first), but what caught my eye was a post by Bradbury – which I thought was a good piece of fun…..

So, the key questions are, after he got upset with Paula, where is the old prick and was it really an old rugby injury???

Sir Michael Cullen stands out in his job. He’s a treaty negotiator for central North Island iwi Ngāti Tūwharetoa. He’s also Pākehā, the only one in a team that fluctuates between four and seven.

In 2004, he was part of the Labour government that pushed through the controversial Foreshore and Seabed Act, with titles for areas in question vested in the crown.

But now he’s switched sides, advocating for Ngāti Tūwharetoa, a role he’s held for ten years.

Cullen says he came into it with a “reasonable level of respect from Māori” despite his history with the foreshore and seabed, and has gained fresh insight in the process.

Never get rid of troughers do we.

Jacinda didn’t do well on ZB

Firstly, Jacinda continues to be on top of her “uhhms and ahhhs” – a bit late but good on her to fixing that weak aspect of her personal presentation (I maintain there’s always hope if a political leader is able to listen and respond to negative feedback by changing their behaviours).

However, she is sounding weak and very unleaderful. Mike put his finger on the most important point here – he told her she “is the party” and that saying “the party this” and “the party that” just means that she is looking like she’s not on top of things. Which of course she isn’t. She’s just doing the talking points given to her by the union big boys in Fraser House.

Which probably goes a long way to confirm what many have thought from the beginning about Jacinda, that she is just a puppet with no real power. She is a (supposedly) pretty face that gets rolled out for Women’s Day photoshoots and for smiley sessions with schoolkids to put a “softer, kinder” face on an increasingly ugly and totalitarian Labour party.

As always, it’s interesting to muse on how long this lie would’ve held up if not for the lying, whoring, complicit left wing MSM prostituting themselves to defend Jacinda’s increasingly long list of failures and inadequacies.

And one final point, relating to Hullkiwi’s point about Winston’s extended (and extending) hospital stay with his “old rugby injury” – given the additional pressure socialist Cindy is under now and her increasingly emaciated look (and the long history of rumours about her being prone to breakdowns) it is a worrying possibility that she may flake out and need hospitalisation for exhaustion (at the very least she needs to be stealing some of Meghan Woods’ pies to feed herself up a bit). Then the country would be without a PM or a DPM – who would take the reins? The inestimably stupid and incoherent Kelvin Davies (FFS I hope not).

“Old rugby injury”. Winston refusing to admit to needing hospitalisation because he is old sick.

Email sent to the AM Show this morning.

Duncan’s hypocrisy.

Duncan,
You would expect a National PM to resign for much less than what you have finally mentioned about Jacinda Ardern and her willful blindness. Not to mention if National MP’s fluffed their portfolios as badly as Labour MP’s do.

Why, if she has been misled is Haworth still working for the Labour Party, or any of the others that have had contact with the complainants? Your bias, as a so-called member of the fourth estate, is glaring. You hold Labour to a very low standard indeed and only seem to report negative stories about Labour when it is unavoidable, and even then it doesn’t consume your whole programme as it would if it was National. If you can’t see your own bias then perhaps someone more balanced should take your place.

If you are concerned about Jacinda’s mental health as a reason why you only soft interview her, then as her ‘friend’ surely resigning is best for her, as well as for the country.

This morning I heard Ardern claiming that until a few weeks ago she never knew the complaints involving staff were sexual.

I might be missing something but if my memory is correct wasnt Mallard running around several months ago claiming there was a rapist working in parliament.

Suicide Prevention Office part of Government’s plan to ‘take mental health seriously’
https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/09/suicide-prevention-office-part-of-government-s-plan-to-take-mental-health-seriously.html

“A Suicide Prevention Office will be established as part of the Government’s plan to “support people in distress” and help bring down New Zealand’s high suicide rate.”

Tell that to Labour’s victims of sexual assault.
