  1. WHEN A BANK HAS IT’S ‘SUSPICIONS’ ABOUT YOUR MONEY…

    I don’t know the guy who is speaking, but if you thought that Nigel Farage was the only one to have his bank accounts frozen for spurious reasons (At least to us mere mortals), herewith something similar from across the ditch.

    No doubt similar things are happening in NZ.

    It is worth noting BTW that the organisation responsible for what the speaker describes, is Westpac (The former Bank of NSW) with this being an organisation which, from personal experience (no details) does at times seem to have very strange ideas about what constitutes ‘good’ customer service, and a well-held belief that they are above the law.

    • Thanks Komata.
      This guy explains it very well, and now in exposing what the banks practice is, now risks becoming another costly causality of over reach so becoming a PEP.

      ….. a politically exposed person (PEP) is one who has been entrusted with a prominent public function.
      A PEP generally presents a higher risk for potential involvement in bribery and corruption by virtue of their position and the influence they may hold. …..

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politically_exposed_person#:~:text=In%20financial%20regulation%2C%20a%20politically,the%20influence%20they%20may%20hold.

      So the PEP could be applied to any one comments on a blog, expressing a commonsense view.

      You either comply or we will ‘nullify’ you for living in this community.

      For me, not so bad, but still annoying, in making a digital computer payment, to an existing account, & because it was over a certain amount, for my “health & safety” well because they believe it could be a scam or fraud, so for “security” stopped the payment, until I rang, questioned them, which they then allowed, but in doing so, then advised me that my “eft-pos” card would be blocked for a full 24 hours.

      Another time when paying far too much tax, through the agent bank, West-Pac, to IRD, then because of the limit which I was not aware of, then stopped my card, again for 24 hours.

      Bring back the old “Cheque Book Times” ! & where any one could write a “cash cheque” & many business’s would cash a cheque. 🙂

      Yes revtech120, WestPac is the IRD’s agency bank.
      Yet is it has & is making itself unavailable, closing many branches so for me it is now getting to be a round trip of nigh on 200 km.
      It is bad enough now in making payment that has to fit in with one’s card limits, but at least one had a teller after waiting in a long queue to help you through that process.

    • How does the likes of Harry Tam & others of the Mongrel Mob receive their money for, for like writing up $3,000 Cultural Reports, and more importantly why is they able to withdraw that money, when all of their business is much more aligned & associated with proceeds of criminal & injustice activity in collusion with the government, compared to the general citizen.

      So the government seems to be an aid for white washing & creating a process for laundering monies.

  2. Looks like Camati Toffee is running for the seat formerly held by the minister of drink driving. Having lost his safe seat to the tattooed cowboy in the last election and failed at every thing he’s touched since it should be funny watching him trying to carpet bag his way into a meal ticket over on the East coast. I hate to say this, but surely even Labour can do better than this conceited idiot.

  5. An southland couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and inform the other if there is sex after death.
    Their biggest fear was that there was no “after life” at all.
    After a long life together, he was the first to die. True to his word, he made the first contact: “Mrs, Mrs can you hear
    me?
    “Is that you, SK?
    “Yes, I’ve come back like we agreed.
    “That’s wonderful! What’s it like?
    “Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it’s off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (and Mrs, you’d be proud — lots of greens). Another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it’s back to the golf course again. Then it’s more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again.
    “Oh, SK! Are you in Heaven?
    “No — I’m a rabbit somewhere in Southland.”

  6. Three GI’s return from the Vietnam war stricken with a serious strain of STD termed “dick rot”. The first guy goes to an American specialist, but the doctor shakes his head, sorry man, this is incurable, only amputation is the solution. He tells his buddies the sad solution and but both refused to give up.
    The second man says I am going to Europe, maybe they have better technology than here. But when he consults a German doctor, the answer was the same “amputieren”, and he calls to his buddies and says we are done.
    The third man refuses to give up and says maybe the Orient has an alternative medicine solution, so he flies to Taiwan and then to Hongkong. The Chinese medicine man says, “this is no problem, we can solve this naturally using herbal medicines.”
    Happily he calls his buddies and tells them “hah I can keep mine without amputation, too bad it’s too late for you two. So he was given a bag of herbal tea and was told to keep drinking the tea for 5 days and the problem will be solved naturally.
    He follows the instructions and after 5 days of drinking the tea, his dick fell off naturally without surgery.

  7. Several men were in the locker room of the gym when a cell phone on a bench rang and a man put it on speaker and begins to talk. Everyone in the room stopped to listen.

    Man: Hello!

    Woman: Hi honey, its me. Are you at the club?

    Man: Yes.

    Woman: Im at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. Its only $2000: is it OK if I buy it?

    Man: Sure, go ahead if you like that much.

    Woman: I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models. I saw one that I really liked.

    Man: How much?

    Woman: $90,000

    Man: OK, but for that price I want it with all options.

    Woman: Great! Oh, and one more thing. I was just talking to Jane and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on market. They are asking $980,000 for it.

    Man: Well, then go ahead and offer $900,000. They’ll probably take it. If not, we can go to the extra $80,000 if that’s what you really want.

    Woman: OK. See you later! I love you too much!

    Man: Bye, I love you too.

    The man hung up. The other men in the locker room were staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open.

    He turned and asked: Anyone knows whose phone is this?

  8. Last evening when the Football Ferns came out on the field and refused to sing our national anthem in English I remarked “I hope they bloody well fail”.

    OK I admit that was a bit bad tempered; but I think it was very fitting that these people didn’t get through to the next round as they were obviously not representing New Zealand.

          But you know there was a lot of ‘could haves’ and ‘might haves’ and ‘almost have’ that count to the media scum .

          so not good enough to to go to the next round of 16.
          Their total glory was a single goal against Norway 10 days ago.
          They lost to Philippines when ‘they should have won’
          This will all have cost NZ taxpayers a lot of money for ‘not very much’

          But hey, lets distract with asking for equal pay for the chicks.

            • Technically, co-host with Australia.

              Remember when NZ was supposed to co-host the 2003 RWC but the NZRFU did not bother communicating back.
              To recall from then, the ever nasty prick, Mallard , wanted to shove a heineken bottle up the azz of a geezer dying of cancer.

              No concern it was the fault of the NZRFU ; and AU ended up hosting on their own.
              Mallard. Born a prick, will die a prick, and is prick every minute in between.

              footnote: 2003. Vernon Pugh, who has died aged 57, was international rugby union’s most influential figure and a leading QC on planning and environment issues.
              The former chairman of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) was one of the most influential people in the history of the game and oversaw the move to professionalism in 1995.
              He established the European Cup as a major competition and was largely responsible for the introduction of Italy to the northern hemisphere’s Six Nations championship.

    The Ministry of Health is refusing to correct mistakes in its Paritūtū serum dioxin study, and has instead shut down access to data revealing the errors.

    From the 1960s through to 1987, Ivon Watkins (later Ivon Watkins-Dow, or IWD) made the herbicide 2,4,5-T, which contained the toxic dioxin TCDD, at Paritūtū, Taranaki.

    ” There was some interesting data on Newshub Nation over weekend from their Digital Editor, Finn Hogan. Said looking at top ten online presence, Luxon was 1, Seymour 2, Peters 3, Bishop 4, Brown 5. Hipkins came in at 7. He said in metrics measured National was “pretty far ahead”, especially videos, where they had 1 million views compared to Labour’s 55,000. Meantime, over last 90 days Labour had spent $300,000, Nats $120,000, ACT $60,000, Greens $2,400. Said pretty clear Labour were “on the back foot, in some ways trying to spend their way out, whereas National “can kind of lean back and not open that War Chest”.. “

    • Two lefty wankers to avoid
      ——
      May 2023
      Two longstanding supporters of the Labour Party matched $150,000 worth of small donations, adding to Labour’s war chest ahead of this year’s general election.

      Former Auckland mayor Dick Hubbard and Les Mills International founder Phillip Mills stumped up with $100,000 and $50,000 respectively following a donation drive from Labour last week.
      ———-

      Dick Hubbard was so stoooopid that when he stood for Mayor of Auckland in 2004 – and got in- he thought he could call it ‘like a boss’
      Then he realised that he had just one vote of 20 in council and that it was run by a CEO .
      What a plonker .
      He was lame duck from early on.
      and an extreme christian who was very patronising to his poorly paid Pacific Island staffers as his cereal plant.
      However, he did pay taxes unlike Sanitarium cereals.

  14. I recently got sent this link. A copy of a speech, given by David Lange in 2000. It is quite a long read but it is well worth your time. I don’t agree with everything but I like the depth of thinking and way of arguing the particular points—there are very few, if any in the current motley lot in Parliament , who can think and argue like this.

    In some ways he was nearly predicting what is happening today.

  15. On Plunket’s interview with Oliver Hartwich they referred to Damien Grants piece on the weekend Stuff. I went searching and found it.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/opinion/132633483/damien-grant-the-pathway-to-freedom-from-a-narrowminded-petty-economic-backwater

    Good article but the comments tell me more about why NZ is stuffed than what Damien or Oliver have said, although both clearly know how to the problems so clearly. Too many of the population seem to have their head in the sand and are still super glued to Ardern’s nonsense and while those attitudes remain it is hard to see us changing direction let alone move forward.. The comments also show how people will so easily misrepresent what the author has said to try to counter the point made.

        • I listened to it this morning.
          I find Hartwich leans more to turning NZ in to a mini industrial nation where I believe our productivity has been hampered by too much regulation and an economy revolving around housing and immigration.
          I think we should get government out of our lives reduce regulation and recognise land based activities as the powerhouse of our economy.

    A man has been arrested after a boy was assaulted with a wine bottle at a restaurant on Auckland’s North Shore last night.

    Police were called to a restaurant on Inverness Rd by customers before 7pm, Inspector Todd Moore-Carter said.

    The man is due to appear in the North Shore District Court today charged with injuring with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

    “I would like to reassure the community that this was an isolated incident, and we continue to encourage them to frequent their local restaurants,” Moore-Carter said.

  17. IMPORTANT DEADLINE TONIGHT!

    As you most probably are aware, submissions to the fascists’ Safer Online Services & Media Platforms Consultation committee CLOSE TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT and VFF have helpfully put together some suggestions for bulletpoint objections here:

    https://www.voicesforfreedom.co.nz/ocft-july-2023/

    If you haven’t got time (and time is short), here is the email I sent them, which you can either copy/paste, or better still change the order of the bullet points. There are lots of other suggestions on the VFF link – but we only have a few hours left, so here is my effort, for what it’s worth.

    ———————————————————————–

    TO: sosmp_consultation@dia.govt.nz
    SUBJECT: Safer Online Services & Media Platforms Consultation

    Hello

    I wish to strenuously OBJECT to the government’s proposals to limit freedom of expression with these proposed ‘reforms’ for the following main reasons:

    – Section 14 of the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 protects freedom of expression. This includes the freedom to seek, receive and impart information and opinions of any kind, in any form. A robust interpretation must apply to this fundamental freedom.

    – Rather than censor what New Zealanders say, we would do better to encourage more healthy debate on confronting issues. Banning speech doesn’t eradicate it. It drives it underground. While we may temporarily run the risk of offence, the best solution to bigoted ideas is to discuss why they are undesirable.

    – In short, Censorship is not the answer to speech we do not agree with. On the contrary, an open online media enables robust discussion. This is the HALLMARK OF A FREE SOCIETY.

    In my view, these proposals should be abandoned forthwith as no convincing evidence exists that New Zealand will benefit from this wholesale destruction of its citizens’ liberty and freedom.

    Yours sincerely

    (My Name)

  18. World’s first robot CEO tells all on the future of humanity

    At a time when two of the world’s most powerful tech titans are looking to have a cage fight, you’d surely think that life can’t get any crazier.

    But the ‘world’s first robot CEO’, speaking exclusively to MailOnline, hints that artificial intelligence (AI) could run Twitter and Meta far more efficiently than both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.

    Mika, who heads up the Polish spirits firm Dictador, believes that more CEOs just like her will soon crop up around the world as AI blends into businesses.

    As an employee who ‘never asks for a raise or takes a vacation’, Mika boasts that she is a ‘game-changer for profit-making’, helping on numerous fronts including communication, strategy planning and even package design.

    Man who strangled wife granted visa to stay in New Zealand

    A man convicted of strangling his wife can remain in New Zealand on a work visa after the Immigration Tribunal decided it would be “unduly harsh” to deport him.

    The man – of Indian nationality – has separated from his wife but is still involved in caring for their son, who has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and a spinal condition.

    The tribunal decided that the man’s involvement in his son’s life amounted to “exceptional circumstances of a humanitarian nature”.

    He was also granted a 12-month work visa, despite having no current employment.

    In 2019 Hausman was banned for four years after returning a positive result for Clenbuterol.

    A tip-off led to a further test in April this year before her ban had finished, which returned a positive result for four anabolic steroids.

    That’s led to a further seven year ban.

  24. AUSSIE GIANT GETS NZ REGULATOR TO FINE LOCAL OPERATOR
    The Commerce Commission has won a $500,000 penalty against the Mitre10 MEGA operator in Tauranga for trying to block a Bunnings Warehouse from opening nearby. This is a big win for the giant Australian Bunnings group (revenue AU$18 mln and part of the Wesfarmers Group. revenue AU$31 bln) against the very much smaller individual local Mitre10 local business (probably revenue of ~$175 mln). It will enable Bunnings to pick them off one-by-one.

    https://www.interest.co.nz/economy/123303/review-things-you-need-know-you-sign-monday-business-sentiments-lifts-slightly

    Mitre 10 vs Bunnings: $500K penalty in ‘anti-competitive’ land dispute
    The sister company of a Mitre 10 MEGA operator has been fined $500,000 after a Commerce Commission investigation.

    Commerce Commission chair John Small said the penalty handed down at the High Court in Wellington should serve as a lesson to others considering similar moves.

    NGB Properties was accused of placing an anti-competitive covenant on a site close to Mitre 10 MEGA Tauranga, allegedly to prevent competitor Bunnings from opening nearby.

    The Commission said NGB was the sister company of Juted Holdings Limited, which operated Mitre 10 MEGA in Tauranga.

    Small said the Commerce Act banned using land covenants that were intended to substantially lessen competition in a market or were likely to have that effect.

    “Land covenants can harm competition by raising barriers to entry or expansion in a particular market, making it harder for competitors to compete effectively and gain scale,” he said.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/bay-of-plenty-times/news/mitre-10-vs-bunnings-500k-penalty-in-anti-competitive-land-dispute/F4FJU4GMUJGLHO3LPN7XAFSY7Q/

    Bunnings bought the old Gilmours warehouse in Cameron Rd. Alongside was a large section with a car merchant. Mega offered plenty and that person accepted but Mega stuck a covenant on it that would have prevented Bunnings from ever being able to use the section despite Mega wanting to resell it to someone other than Bunnings. Mega are bloody expensive because of their position. Going to be interesting to see what happens now.

  25. Taxpayer funded and zero focus on responsibility.

    Are you jobless, or with no high school qualification? Are you renting, or a sole parent? Are you Māori or Pasifika, or living in Counties Manukau?

    If you answered “yes” to any or more than one of these questions, you’re much more likely to be mired in the cycle of disadvantage that casts a shadow on almost one in five New Zealanders, according to an in-depth analysis by the Productivity Commission.

    And those chances skyrocket to two out of three if you’re an unemployed sole parent, or three in five if you live in a South Auckland Pasifika household, or if you’re Māori and renting.

  26. Arctic terns, birds long famous for their thousands of miles migratory habits, have been profoundly affected by climate change. Researchers have determined that as landmarks have disappeared due to loss of ice, some terns get stressed to the point of prematurely ending their flights.

    Exposure to cannabinoids reduces stress levels in the stopped birds, allowing them to continue their journey. A team formed to find the colonies of stragglers and drop marijuana smoke bombs on the birds. The head of the expedition acknowledged that it was a huge undertaking, but vowed to leave no tern unstoned.

    ……….I’ll get my stab proof vest.

  27. The New Conservative view on the Neil Farage cancellation – always some good news “In fulfilment of the ‘go woke, go broke’ dictum, the NatWest share price has dropped to the bottom of the FTSE 100 index, with £600 million already wiped from the bank’s stock market value. Shares in other banks signed up to the woke agenda—Lloyds Banking Group and Barclays—have also followed suit.”

  28. Judge to oversee administration of iconic Te Tii Marae in Waitangi as trustees put on notice

    The performance of trustees and administrators at one of the country’s most iconic marae has been under the microscope, with a Māori Land Court judge formally putting trustees on notice.

    Te Tii Waitangi Marae’s board of trustees has been before the land court for the past 20 years as several attempts to rectify administration processes were undertaken.

    The marae charter was established in 1994 with rules around the election and appointment of trustees, which became consistently controversial among beneficiaries over the years.

    The marae charter states: “There will be one nominated trustee per whānau and trustees elected by their whānau can only be removed by their whānau.” It’s a sticking point that has driven beneficiaries to file multiple applications over the years to have trustees removed.

  29. Just listened to RCR –Paul Brennan talking to Kirston Murfitt (ex DNZ and now a candidate for NZF). Interesting listening. When the defection by the four from DNZ occurred there was a suggestion from DNZ that the four were a bit niave on a few things about politics. After listening to the interview I can see they could have been at least, partially correct. Don’t get me wrong, I think Kirston is sincere in what she says but to say that before she went to the NZF conference she did not know what a remit was and she was not aware of who Casey Costello was, had me scratching my head.
    Winston has obviously turned on the “charm” and if she gets into Parliament it might be a rough ride, when she realises minor parties limited abilty to get positive things done. They can stop things going ahead but to get their positive ideas through is different.
    BTW. She had an interesting story about Seymour and the WEF.

  30. Released prisoner hits Rebel Sport three times, takes cars, burgles and splashes on stolen credit cards.
    When she was sentenced in February this year, Te Aho was no stranger to the courts, or even prison.

    At the age of 27, she had a criminal record which ran for 17 pages, mostly for dishonesty offences – shoplifting and theft, burglary and using a document for pecuniary advantage.

    She had committed more than 100 crimes while on bail for other offences, and when she offended last year, was on release conditions after being freed from prison in March 2022.

    Judge Collins sentenced Te Aho to three years in prison on the Flaxmere burglary charge, with lesser concurrent sentences for the other offending.

    Te Aho appealed the sentence to the High Court, and Justice Paul Radich – on reviewing Judge Collins’ calculations – said he would have imposed a sentence of two years and eight months. He reduced Te Aho’s prison term accordingly.

    appalling record but the softy cock didn’t sentence her to enough detention. % years hard yakka and drug rehab while there.
    suitable candidate for 3 strikes.
