Just a question on the sex assualt from someone in Labour that is vital to Hacinda and her chances of being re-elected. Why has Andrea Vance been giving Labour a serious kicking it is not true and Jacinda did not know as Andrea is tribal Labourand as red as they come, so Labour has to be naive or stupid to think this will go away.

Mike Hosking : Ardern’s week ahead looks no better than last week.
Even if this doesn’t get any worse, and that’s still a massive question mark, as she tries to move on, the teflon around EQ has been blown to pieces.
Jethro doesn’t normally remain silent – even though he should.
Has he finally learned his place as political wife?
political wife? when were they married. More like political whore
I heard that Jethro has been overseas as it was reported he and his film crew were recently very close to being attacked by a tiger.
It sounded quite dramatic until someone let slip the tiger was on the other side of a fast flowing river.
Surprised it has not made headlines. Perhaps Cindy is saving this for a diversion when more shite hits the fan.
Jethro featured is in that paper!
Pity the tiger wasn’t a bit hungrier.
You may never have heard about this person but in another life when kids we did scouting things.
A really humble guy that’s the sort of person that does some great work.
Attacked by an octopus, cuddled by a baby whale, and diving under Antarctic ice are only a few of the many extraordinary moments he’s experienced along the way.
He once stood on the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf in McMurdo Sound waiting for three spyhopping orca to surface while his helicopter hovered overhead, unable to land, such was the commitment and passion.
Cool Stuff Kim.
A bit like our Jethro then….
Not at all. Father was a scientist in Wellington.
So any wanker can say what they like on their bio, and nothing is checked y the companies selling his stuff? I would sue too.
Be careful who you do business with.
Bankruptcies, fraud, bad debts and failed companies – some members of the tight-knit Bishop family have caused financial havoc in various parts of New Zealand. Blair Ensor and Martin van Beynen report.
The Bishops are a tight-knit family of seven who like doing things together.
A daily dose of more climate change bullshit in the main rags like Stuff. I wonder how many journalists stay employed on that one topic? Pathetic isn’t it? Glad my son is a thorn is his teacher’s side, parroting his father’s “denialism.” (reality) 🙂 “Son, the only good commie is a dead commie.” “Right Dad!” “Good lad. “
Yes, the Climate Change hysteria in Stuff has reached new heights.
Their headlines are really pathetic.
“Climate Change is now Mainstream!”
Its so mainstream that they have to say it is!
Radio, TV and Print media in NZ have joined the other 250 International media groups who are brow-beating us with Climate Change propaganda this month (and especially this week).
e.g.From Monday, Newsroom joins 250 media organisations internationally who are highlighting global climate change in the week leading to a critical United Nations summit.,
Hopefully it is just climate change week.
“… leading to a critical United Nations summit”
Starring NZs own[drumroll] [flashing lights] Jacinda Ardern [flashing lights]as top climate worrier and leader of the world.
A world where my child …
this is my earnest face …
see my child …
that’s her there …
want a photo?…
Can we take her passport away for being an international embarrasment?
Nice rifle by the way- had a great time at a gun range with one of those last USA visit. Picked up our ammo at the local Wal-Mart on the way there.
The bloody dumb pricks at the herald are now being led by the nose by Stuff. They are now going fullon with the bullshit of climate change.
That rubbish despite this
Our cows pale into insignificance alongside the seaps.
And Stiff of course has a line up of NZ’s worst climate change offenders.
They are not happy with Carbon being a climate change gas or methane.
They have now found a third gas that is causing it.
Some “sulphur acid compound”
It shows how desperate they are.
The thing is Carbon and Methane may be going up a little bit in the atomsphere, but temperatures are not.
The two are not related!
Detailed reporting continues about Hong Kong….
…… meanwhile, week 43 of yellow jacked protests against the evil globalist dictator Macron and.. crickets!
Can’t have the truth about the horrific mess that the E-USSR is wreaking across Europe influencing those stupid sheeple in the UK while it looks like the globalist coup in the UK might just be carried off.
Journalists as a profession have to have a good long hard look at themselves – the reporting of one revolution while completely ignoring an almost identical one should forever be a blight on the least trusted profession.
The MSM obviously have forgotten about the internet and that anyone who has the nous will be aware of the ongoing protests in France.
And what about all the carbon and methane released from Volcanos.
I was so pleased that Trump told the UN and the Climate Change industry to F off.
Revealed: Councils spent over $100,000 on 2018 Christmas parties
“In the lead-up to local body elections, Newshub can reveal the amount of money spent by local Government on Christmas parties in 2018. All up, at least, $106,305 was dished out
The Southland District Council was the biggest spender, with $18,598 going towards end-of-year celebrations.”
So easy to spend other people’s money.
If that’s a national total I’m surprised it isn’t a higher figure.
Anyone know the number of people employed by local body councils?
$100k is probably only a sausage roll each.
One Council I worked for didn’t spend anything on staff Xmas, so we payed for it ourselves. Another one was the complete opposite- free booze, gourmet venue and chefs running around, live entertainment, and probably 100K easy of the rate payer’s $$$.
name and shame them
Kaipara and Whangarei respectively 🙂
As long as there is not a sausage roll party for me and a crayfish, caviar, bubbles for thee!
We busted our asses all year long and damn well deserved a party, but at Council level it’s just not a good look. It is tax payers’ money after all. After three bottles of champagne I was wasted. Don’t remember getting home that night lol.
At some point this week the tree counter will roll over onto two hundred million trees (200,000,000.) The Government needs to be asked how they are progressing with their tree planting programme – remember these were sold to us as NEW trees, not replacement trees.
The last I heard we had only funded about 24 million trees, but whether these were new or replacement trees, I have no idea. If they were replacement trees, then we should urge Shame Jones to get his nephs very busy, as they will have a frantic year ahead !
Was the claim for trees planted in New Zealand? Maybe Winston First includes worldwide totals?
Why did Jacinda have to go to Japan now? When’s our first game? Fancy her missing the actual Christchurch 6 month anniversary. That makes it sound like a celebration?
Jacinda might have earned some respect if she thought the country needed some leadership. Who’s in charge?
Is Winston back at work this week. He is the deputy PM, so why have we not had an update on his return. Has he recovered from his rugby injury? Where is Winston? Is he able to return to his job?
I am surprised that Clarke didn’t put his hand up. Or is he a rugger fan?
Hopefully he’s permanently incapacitated and won’t reappear. I know this sounds a terrible thing to say, but I don’t say it lightly. The man is nothing more than a self-serving cockroach. A political vermin that should have been eradicated from the body politic a long time ago.
“Charles” in Charge?
Kelvin Davis I hope.
He makes Genter look intelligent.
Dumb and Dumber!
Will he keep speaking to us all in te reo, just because he can?
South Africa next Saturday, that gives plenty of time to kick a few tyres, maybe she could have a look at the dozens of new clean coal fired power stations and discuss their immigrant policies.
Why the rush then, I am sure some Muslims will feel slighted that she wasn’t there suitably dressed for one of a no doubt never-ending commiserations. On the actual 15th, wa she always going to go to Japan early or has she just gapped it? Why isn’t it an issue?
I am waiting for other countries to follow her example when they have terror attacks whatever the hue? Any other leader picked up the baton, or do they just get on as best they can?
Gang member stabbed to death in Christchurch altercation ‘lived for the Mongrel Mob’
died for the Mongrel Mob.
I’m sure he had a very high-paying white collar salary to support those 11 kids, and will be sorely missed by his employer LOL. I can only imagine what that one loser would have cost the taxpayer over the years.
Yes and he had eleven lovely children that he looked after so well.
“Kokaua had 11 children, two of whom he raised, and 15 grandchildren, who live in Australia.”
Bet that qualifies for a big haka at the funeral.
The next 15 to get deported or are they wonderful community minded citizens like grandad?
Chances are good that they are mobsters
Where do you start to analyse such an article and such a life? Sod it, I can’t be bothered.
A Mongrel Mob gang member killed after an altercation at a Christchurch home was hard on the outside, but had a “heart of gold”, his daughter says.
You can’t make this shit up. Honestly, it’s comedy gold! In reality, if the reports are correct this sub human POS was a tribalist criminal and one of New Zealand’s worst kind of vermin.
I was passing an Indians shop this morning and I thought I’d pop in for some tea bags, but all I could see was that horrible instant powdered shit…
I said, “Oi Patel, have you got any proper teas”?
He said, “Oh yes my friend, I got this shop, a house down the street, and five flats in South Auckland”
I still see lots of third world people walking round my city.
What do they do?
What use are they?
How do they get in?
Many can’t read English, so they mistook “Tasman Sea” as “Rio Grande”. Ignorant bastards are way off course.
They must all be working on shiftwork!
Why else would you see so many out and about during the day?
Finally got this. Too early in the morning……
Right on Patel those Indians sure are industrious. Now about that tea…
There are 400 muslim refugees in Indonesia from places like Pakistan and Afghanistan living in a compound. They are trying to get into to the USA or Australia or New Zealand.
Indonesia has tough rules, so they cannot work there.
As they are all muslims why don’t they try to go to other muslim countries!
What and give up all the free stuff we are stoooopd enough to give them?
And no chance of a takeover, preaching to the already converted.
I know what you are saying, but there is a strong islamic faction there.
There’s enough sand in Saudi Arabia for the lot of them. They’re a wealthy country so leave us the f*ck alone!
And the hunt begins … . Up next week from the left – blaming the victims.
The only thing the Daily Blog left out was adding a vulnerable little seal (named Cindy) about to be eaten by the great white shark represented by the rabid msm. ?
They are soiling themselves over this. It is a bright, sunny day and the left are holding their heads in their hands. Kick ’em while they’re down? With steel-toed boots you bet.
David Starkey is absolutely on fire in this podcast with Brendan O’Niell:
Whats it about?
Cooking, Fire fighting, fashion?
My time is valuable a heads up would be helpful as i’ve never heard of either of them.
TV historian David Starkey lambasts the establishment as treasonous for negotiating on behalf of the EU, and brands Remoaner ex-Tory Dominic Grieve ‘a lying, deceiving shit’.
‘Dominic Grieve was not elected in a personal capacity. He was elected as a Tory on a Tory manifesto which promised Brexit. That man did not dissent at the time. His claims to dignity, to acting honourably are totally false. He is a shit – a lying deceiving shit from start to finish. And an oiled shit – look at that awful, greasy hairdo. We really have to start calling things by their proper names.’
He also says the behaviour of some elite Remainers has been treasonous:
‘The old word is treason. We are engaged in a highly contentious negotiation with a strong, united and determined opponent. A large part of the political elite has deliberately gone and negotiated with them against their own country. It’s another aspect of the elite I find disgusting – most of the elite hate their own country and they regard the people with absolute contempt.’
Any more info on the UMR poll that Matthew Hooten mentioned.
It was not looking good for Labour.
The only UMR poll I found was from August 2017 when Labour was pleased with the poll result.
I suspect Labour’s poll results would be similar to Ed’s poll result on whether we trust Robertson. ?
Their pollster does it differently when it is an internal one, perhaps they stopped fudging and inflating things to make Jacinda feel good.
Jacinda down in the polls from 51% 3months ago to 31% now in her personal ratings.
“He was declared bankrupt in 2011, owing more than $200 million. He was discharged from bankruptcy in late 2014.”
How can Serepisos (or anyone) be discharged from bankruptcy after only 3 years when he owed $200 million?
More bad news for Labour leadership:
Petrol prices could skyrocket to $3 a litre after Saudi Arabia attacks
As well as filling up our private vehicles this price rise is going to impact on our cost of living with it costing more for trucking companies delivering goods, and the price of air travel increasing, etc. Another nail in the NZ economy.
Do you think they’ll use some of that 50% buffer they have in the price to alleviate the rise?
As Winston’s sign says, NO!
The left don’t believe in tax cuts. They are not going to give us a tax break just because there has been a terrorist attack on the supply line.
They could always try doing a bit of prospecting down Taranaki way – having your own oil wells sounds like a good idea unless you’re an ideologically brain washed luddite who is paid too much.
Here’s an idea the government could reduce the crippling tax take on every litre so as to offset the price rise. $3 per litre will not only be a nail in the coffin of the economy but will almost certainly result in a much diminished tax return from fuel as people seriously cut back at least in the short term.
Must be some really bad political polls coming up.
Ardern who is pro refugee and welcomes anyone who wants to come to NZ either illegally or legally has just spent a shit load of money blocking boat people from coming here.
What in the hell is this idiot up to.
‘Horror scenario’ of petrol at $3 a litre possible after Saudi strike – economist
“The “horror scenario” at this stage, he says, is $3 a litre.
If you look at the imported component of the petrol prices, it’s about 75c. Let’s keep the maths simple – let’s say that oil prices basically double, that imported component will go from 75c to $1.50.”
I still refuse to part with my beloved 4.0 in-line 6 cyl Falcon motor. It eats gas like a small V8, costs heaps to run, but damn I love the power and I’ll pay the $$! Pump some more oil dammit.
Duncan Garner: Stop climate change grandstanding and cut emissions
Wash your mouth out Duncan.
What is climate change?
What emissions cause climate change?
The EU plans laid bare for all to see. I wonder how many of those Remainers realise this is what will effectively happen when the Lisbon Treaty comes into full force in couple of years.
They’ll go bankrupt soon enough, just quicker with imbeciles like that clown in power. The EU is doomed especially without Great Britain. The EU wants them as a never ending source of money to pay for basket case economies, and as a dumping ground for the 3rd world slobs they seem so damn fond of. GO Brexit!
The man with a palindrome for a surname is worried.
All that dosh to convert the world to socialism is running out.
Soros would have to be one of the most hated people on earth.Prick.
Let the EU burn!!
George Soros warns the European Union is on the brink of collapse
Says page doesn’t exist
I can assure you Page does exist. I found out where she disappears to last week.
I’d like to sit in her lap after eating two cans of baked beans, and see if she likes my “methane footprint”. Take that to the UN with ya honey.
Gotta go and do some work! See you later…
Mine says try again!
Seems a bit pointless praising the bitch, when she’s in Japan!
Where is Whinestone!
The West Bank and Gaza were captured by Israel during the six day war, when Israel was forced into military action by Egypt’s closing the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping and cutting off its access to the Red Sea and beyond despite warnings not to try it.
I’ve recently been to Israel and also the Occupied Territories and, far from being ‘without political rights’, the Arabs in the West Bank and Gaza are given full political rights in that they both have their own (semi autonomous) governments – the PA in the West Bank and whatever bunch of infighting terrorists rise to the top in Gaza.
Israel is a haven of civilization in that benighted part of the world. Also, as far religious Jewish extremism goes, I heard quite a bit of criticism from ordinary Israelis themselves aimed at the ultra orthodox Jews who, they say, don’t contribute their share (and TBH they look pretty weird too).
I’m an atheist and my dad was killed by the Irgun, so I should be rabidly anti Jewish and anti Israel…. but I’m not. Israel is a forward thinking technological driven successful capitalist democracy. An island of sanity in a
mad area of the world. What’s more, they have united Jerusalem and made it open to all three religions to which it is sacred – and I can’t see that ever happening if the Arabs were to take control.
I’d like to be sitting at a sidewalk café in Jaffa Road right now watching the space age tram silently swoop past while sipping a delicious coffee with some halva. Did I mention that their coffee is fantastic? The girls with the guns are pretty amazing too. But that’s another story for another time….
When was this? Who’s traditional homelands and were the Zionosts backing the Germans or the Russians? What was the context?
I’m not just being argumentative, but really your point is not clear.
Now in Italy that Salvini has gone the boats are coming again!
And France and Germany are aiding and abetting them by saying they are prepared to take some of them, as they have plenty of room!
The sooner Britain leaves the EU the better.
I hear that our serial liar is insisting that she wears her Geisha costume when she visits Japan.
I hear there was an Aussie programme on TV possibly last night where they were ripping into Ardern.
She has been crying crocodile tears over visitors to our country being murdered yet when the Aussie tourist was recently killed here there was not a squeak from her.
I worry that the Australian / New Zealand relations is hitting an all time low that will take years to recover from after this lot goes.
Is she wearing her teatowel with that?
There was a rumour that the sex camp pervert and Cindys office one was one and the same.
This seems to have fallen by the way side!
Anyone got some names to them?
Which one is most likely to be an Uber driver…..?
The Parole Board hearing on Czeck drug- smuggler. Karel Sroubek teaching yoga after ‘terrible mistake’. Sroubek said has a job offer in the building industry for when he is released and hoped to become a productive member of the community.
Let’s see how long Lee’s Galloway sits on this especially with all Jacinda is facing now somehow I don’t think the public will be to happy if they give him residency.
I hear that Scroubek and Jethro are starting up a lawn mowing round with a view to having a New Zealand wide franchise.
They have friends who are motorcycle enthusiasts who are prepared to help them.
Isn’t that nice…..
But Kea it is going to be a hard sell for the SLG as emissions are continuing to rise under the COL. The big question is where can she find a soft topic to offer to the UN this time ? Heading a Government that has the biggest list of failures in only 2 years to list. Almost all of her glittering luster blown away with the latest sex scandal handling fiasco leaves very limited options. Even now there is strong indications of the next even bigger scandal likely to break this week described as “chilling to the bone.” The best is yet to come.
Can’t tell from looking at them if they are important or even competent. What decisions have they had input in? Don’t think I’ll be impressed. ?
(Barbara)”Ward is said to give her advice on all kinds of issues, including fashion and style, “
I wondered who on earth advised SLG on fashion and style.
That awful pink-ish coat and the dreadful kankle boots are her fault?
That really really isn’t something you’d want on your CV – style advisor to the St Vincent de Paul poster girl
Too rude: British driver rejects BJ69 number plate
I get the “69” reference but I must be naive but can someone please explain the reference to “BJ” for this dumb chick.
Of course! Thanks Mike.
I would have rejected the number plate too.
I mean, 69 pounds for a blow job.
That’s a bit on the nose.
Tight arse! You should join Labour & get your jollies for free. 🙂
I don’t think you get happy endings over there though.
Been some shit in the news apparently.
I would have expected people to be paying for that plate.
The lengths some will go to:

Been reading the “Why did Labour work so hard to protect the staffer” thread on the blog with the most delayed moderation in cyberspace. Blair Mulholland at 3.12pm has invited anyone who knows who the Labour Party pervert is to contact him on his blog. He’s an ex pat based in the USA & is probably not too worried about being sued from afar.
He’s a Godnutter & as such I don’t trust him but someone of a less risk adverse nature may want to contact him.
He an ex ACT member and very trustworthy.
Just watched Arderns press conference and I discovered two new words
Grader (translation greater) and
I also needed to use up two of my large plastic single use bags.
Greater negativity. Her wish is my command.
Don’t forget “Bin”. I thought it was been.
So Now Ardern is launching 5 inquires into this scandal and will think about publishing one of them!
In some ways this is good as it gives us and National more time to make her look evil and stupid
How to troll the left 101.
What a legend.
Trump’s Plastic Straws And Sharpies Are Netting His Campaign Nearly $1 Million In Cash
Excuse me Jarfinda,
Do you know where really important stuff is going on?
By the way, Disney costume hire rang.
They want their Mickey Mouse outfit back.
Am I correct. Ardern’s QC will not investigate about who knew what and when, thus letting Ardern & Sweet Cheeks off the hook.
Ardern wants to move forward and not be sidetracked by such unimportant stuff.
FFS. Just a cover up.
Labour Party lead investigator insists he wasn’t told about sexual assault allegations
“But the chair of the panel which investigated the Labour Party staffer, lawyer Simon Mitchell, has lawyered up and is digging in.
He has called the complainants’ statements that he was made aware of sexual assault allegations “untrue” and “not credible”.
This isn’t going away any time soon.
He could have told us that 1 week ago and produced his computers for evidence there and then….might have saved a couple of Labour folks their jobs.
Why is he putting his oar in now … after the Labour hierarchy had agreed to having an independent investigation.
where is Robbo’s concern for the complainants now?…
If she was hoping interest in the assault scandal was dying down before her international trips to Japan and the UN she is sorely mistaken.
Ardern has said she is not investigating what any of her MP’s knew or said.
The amazing thing is that had Chompers the nous to front up last Monday when the Spinoff made its relevations, said ‘mea culpa’ & sacked everyone involved it would be all over by now. That is how any half capable political leader would have dealt with it.
But Labour chose Cindy instead.
The Spin off is now my favorite website
Due to what they released last Monday.
Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters has returned to the Beehive and described a sexual assault allegation saga engulfing the Labour Party as a “disgraceful orgy of speculation and innuendo”.
Peters on Monday attended Cabinet for the first time in four weeks after what Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern last month called time off after a leg operation for an old rugby injury.
In his absence, Labour has been dealing with the fallout of the mishandling of serious accusations about a former staffer.
Asked what he had made watching the issue from the sidelines, the NZ First leader told Newstalk ZB there had been a lack of presumption of innocence.
Meanwhile, Peters was also coy about his leave – which has piqued interest among media – but rejected reports he had a knee operation.
“It was a private [operation] and when you pay for the bill you can start asking the questions,” he said.
“Sadly, you all thought the worst, but you were wrong … I’m back.”
Gollum Peters is back and as usual full of shite……
Time for Tehran to be reduced to aggregate.
