  1. FFS, 10 days. laying in the sun on the beach and the old pedophile Joe Biden welcomes the Huston Astros to the white house as the world burns with new wars breaking out or about to break out and he still cant string 6 words together without mumbling and bumbling his way through a 4 minute speech, unbelievable actually, what are historians going to report about this time in their history ?
    At one stage the white house handlers actually cut the sound as his incoherent babbling must have been so bad, the leader of the free world, LMFAO.

    Wasteful spending, greed of IWI, useless Government projects which are not costed correctly, huge increase in wages, salaries and minimum pay, inflation and still these Bastards want more.

    • When will the farming sector push back on this climate change BS? Barry Brill has publicised how a relook at the science in relation to methane has forced a change in the data , the IPCC have accepted the new position so the farmers should be firing it straight back at the Government alarmists. If they don’t, they will be crucified.

  3. TAH, People with any level of intelligence know this country is on the slippery slope to 3rd world status, the level of austerity needed to rescue this place will never be implemented by any of the cowards in Wellington, this country has gotten so bad that if that level of hardship needed to stop the sinking ship is implemented there’ll be one group within our community that will be immunized from those hardships, we’re fucked.

  5. Reading this article by Muriel Newman just made my blood boil. Why even have a bill of rights if you get sentenced for crimes differently if you are Maori or not Maori.

    Add to that my daughter who is normally pretty switched on with her bullshit detector told me on Friday night that there is a 4th verbal article of the treaty of Waitangi. This is what they teach them at University now days. She got corrected on this by myself, but no idea if it’s sunk in to her that she is being lied to at University. No idea if she even believes her old man yet, but arguing with me about New Zealand history is pretty hard when I’ve studied it for most of my adult life.

    • Iaasb;— Those voices have been here in New Zealand for about 50 years, as seen in some in actions like the “acceptable” road blocks, & the white-washed home invasions.

      Although plain speaking by Rita, that kindly interviewer accepting that soft soaped around the edges.

      Even more plain speaking in this declaration.

      ….. “You must never be scared to kill.
      A revolution demands that at some point there must be killing because the killing is part of a revolutionary act.”

  6. Yay more rain hail and snow today…

    Fark this place is a sodden shithole, guess its the same over most of the country this winter?
    I havent exp it this continually boggy and wet during my farming career, winter 2015 comes close but this is more wet n boggy, the ground has been fully saturated for over 2mnths now and cant handle the slightest shower of rain.

    Glad im not dairy or sheep farming starting to calve/lamb as the amount of mud around this year is crazy, they put stock in a padock and its destroyed within 30mins. Gunna have some serious repercussions in late sept/ early oct when they start grazing the second round and find out theyve severly damaged a large percentage of their pasture. Just another kick in the balls to go with declining meat and dairy payouts, im sure the govt is gunna put the boot in some more aswell.

    • I can confirm it’s epically wet ground in the Wellington region. Not as bad as last year, but its pretty comparable. I’d guess it’s the same all over the lower North Island too. Was in the Wairarapa the other week, and it didn’t look any better there.

    • No worries IAASB.

      When Lord Christopher luxon, the First, the Great, the Sage of Sunsilk becomes PM on 14 October he will convene his cabinet, intro allow Genetic engineering on Tuesday 17th Oct, make it legal by Friday and on Saturday 21st you can buy genetically modified grass that will grow and be controlled by an App.
      Want 15 mm growth in a day, no problem, want to amp it back a bit, click here.
      Grass for all.
      67 days to salvation. Just buy in some feed til then !!

      Sure the side effects will be people growing extra fingers, autism, some people growing to 12 feet tall , people in southland growing tails, nothing new. but hey grass for all the staple diet of calves and lambs.
      People are used to medical side effects and take it in their stride. No wurries.

      Lord luxon will be here to help.
      Two ticks God, well, under the Gnats pardy, anyway. !!!

    • SB I have not been recording the exact actual rainfall we have had here but very little and certainly not wet underfoot. Was planting seeds in the garden on Sunday, weeding yesterday, will be spreading sheep compost/manure from the works today. Sunny again but winter conditions. i.e. colder.
      You have had a couple or so great summers, is this natures pay back time for you. Guess all those endless silage bales are starting to disappear from around all the farms.
      ( 77 ml 24 July. 20 ml 20 June 25 ml 20 May – have texted these amounts to a friend – that’s all folks)

      • Still lots of bales around HP, they rekon theres 30-40k bales in southland unsold with no cows to eat them as the farmers have tightened their belts.
        Many of those bales cost $100-110 to make as grass prices were at a premium last season, even at 80bux the bales arent selling so a big haircut for some is looking likely.

        Yea true that on the good summers, mother nature seems to even it out. Grass plentiful and no one had ever exp as much growth as last spring so guess this year could be a polar opposite?

        • Recently travelling around the lower NI and noticed a huge number of bales on the farms. Most rows of them look as though they have not started using them. I spoke to an old farmer about it suggesting farmers will have a huge excess this winter and he said there is an old saying in farming ” if you have a lot of grass you are going need a lot” . As a townie I have no idea if there is any validity to that.

    Rolls-Royce Confirms a ‘Small Number’ of Vehicles on Burned Out Fremantle Highway
    August 2, 2023
    By Wilfried Eckl-Dorna (Bloomberg) —
    BMW AG’s Rolls-Royce has a small number of its exclusive cars aboard the ship that went up in flames off the Dutch coast a week ago.
    The maker of €500,000 luxury vehicles is informing affected clients personally, a spokesperson said Wednesday in an email. While both BMW and Mercedes-Benz Group AG confirmed they have several hundred cars on the Fremantle Highway, neither have offered specific breakdowns by brand or model.
    The ship’s operator disclosed last week that a total of 3,783 cars and construction vehicles are on board. Smoke cleared from the vessel on Tuesday, indicating the fire may have ceased, and Dutch authorities ultimately want to tow it to a port.
    –With assistance from Tsuyoshi Inajima.

  8. A blonde walks into the police department looking for a job. The officer wants to ask her a few questions…

    Officer: What’s 2+2?

    Blonde: Ummmmm… 4!

    Officer: What’s the square root of 100?

    Blonde: Ummmm… 10!

    Officer: Good! Now, who killed Abraham Lincoln?

    Blonde: Ummmm… I dunno.

    Officer: Well, you can go home and think about it. Come back tomorrow.

    The blonde goes home and calls up one of her friends, who asks her if she got the job. The blonde says, excitedly, “Not only did I get the job, I’m already working on a murder case!”

  9. Paddy and Mick were both laid off, so they went to the unemployment office:
    When asked his occupation, Paddy answered, “Knicker Stitcher, i sew da elastic onto ladies’ knickers and thongs.”
    The clerk looked up Knicker Stitcher on his computer and finding it classified as unskilled labour, he gave him £80 a week unemployment pay.
    Mick was next in and when asked his occupation replied. “Diesel Fitter.”
    Since a diesel fitter was a skilled job, the clerk gave Mick £160 a week.
    When Paddy found out he was furious.
    He stormed back into the office to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his pay.
    The clerk explained….
    “Knicker Stitchers are unskilled labour and Diesel Fitters are skilled labour.”
    “What skill?” Yelled Paddy.
    ‘I sew da elastic on da knickers and thongs, then Mick puts ’em over his head and says:
    “Yep, diesel fitter.” 🤣

  10. Some people call for State land to be “given back to iwi” but no one ever defines what they mean by “land.”

    There is more to “land” than just the soil and turf. There is also the legal right to use that the State grants to the holder of the freehold title of the land.

    In pre-European times, the land was merely territory held by force. There was no legally enforced freehold title.

    Should land be given back to iwi in its natural, un-protected un-titled state? That would be more culturally appropriate, I think.

    • The land described below is largely in its natural state. There is nothing appropriate about handing it to maori. They are however making it harder for us all to access this land, as is our right.

      “As a consequence of Conservation Act all Crown land in New Zealand designated for conservation and protection became managed by the Department of Conservation. This is about 30% of New Zealand’s land area or about 8 million hectares of native forests, tussocklands, alpine areas, wetlands, dunelands, estuaries, lakes and islands, national forests, maritime parks, marine reserves, nearly 4000 reserves, river margins, some coastline, and many offshore islands. All of the land under its control is protected for either conservation, ecological, scenic, scientific, historic or cultural reasons, and for recreation.”

  12. Remember thirty years ago when everyone knew their sex? There were men, sheila’s and queers. Anxiety was for poofs. If you had such symptoms you were told like John Kirwan was to get a fucken grip. School nurses didn’t have a medication sheet that ran into pages. If Billy Bunter had a problem with Chad, it was worked out behind the bike shed; and not with the help of a duty teacher.

    Boy have things declined. Remember the Spirit Of Adventure sailing ship that would take children for a week and show them the real world of adventure and team work? There used to be a waiting list of excited kids wanting to have that experience.

    But not anymore.

    Children are no longer applying. There are behavioural issues. Children have anxiety issues. Basically kids can’t cope with being on the Spirit Of Adventure.

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/08/07/spirit-of-adventure-recruitment-stunted-by-youth-anxiety/

    My solution. A month attending a third world school while living in a third world community would clear the head and sinuses.

    I do wonder what role social media plays in all of this? I notice the attention span of children nowadays is next to zero. Maybe the mental effort of concentrating for a day doing tasks that may require effort and grit is beyond them?

  13. Renaming Twitter to X must be one of the biggest. messages to humanity that we are now under the control of robots. Twitter is a pretty stupid name, but at least it perfectly describes the activity – mindless twittering of the masses who swarm in flocks – but X is a totally different thing. An unknown. A ghostly undifined presence. A mark with a secret identity and purpose.

    That guy robot Musk is one clever machine, that’s for sure.

      Complete bastards of colonisers.
      The Maori would really be having a whinge – for actual good reason -if they did a deal with the froggies.

      Frogland has no advanced ‘colonies’
      Why?
      Maybe Quebec but that is carried by the rest of Canada and still the snail munchers whinge about everything done FOR them.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiti_indemnity_controversy#:~:text=The%20French%20government%20finally%20acknowledged,about%20%24560%20million%20in%202022.
      ….The Haiti indemnity controversy involves an 1825 agreement between Haiti and France that included France demanding a 150 million franc indemnity to be paid by Haiti in claims over property – including Haitian slaves – that was lost through the Haitian Revolution in return for diplomatic recognition, with the debt removing $21 billion from the Haitian economy.
      The first annual payment alone was six times Haiti’s annual revenue.[1] The payment was later reduced to 90 million francs in 1838, equivalent to $32,535,940,803 in 2022,

      Over the 122 years between 1825 and 1947, the debt severely hampered Haitian economic development as payments of interest and down payments totaled a significant share of Haitian GDP, constraining the use of domestic financial funds for infrastructure and public services..
      ——————–
      Can’t blame Haiti all on the haitian’s woes. France triggered it.

      Took these people from Africa and worked them without pay. When they fought back for freedom – fair enough -France landed them with a massive debt.
      USA at least bought the land of Liberia and offered the freed slaves a country back in Africa.
      The mighty, haughty oh so fair and saintly English had no problems with France’s behaviour.

      France tried to enslave the people of people of southEast Asia. Their truculence lead to the US War of Aggression against Vietnam.
      The French were too chicken shit to defend their own country against the Hun but let other nations free them with massive loss of THEIR lives .
      La liberte..attained by others blood.

      The French were too chicken shit to defend’ their territory’ against Japan.
      But went back there after 1945 to tried to be superior bastards -again.

      The French really are the lowest of the low.

        • The whole Island of Hispaniola makes interesting reading
          ———–
          In 1697, after decades of fighting over the territory, the Spanish ceded the western part of the island to the French, who henceforth called it Saint-Domingue. Saint-Domingue developed into a highly lucrative colony for France. Its economy was based on a labor-intensive sugar industry, which depended on vast numbers of West African slaves.
          ————–

          There were less than 400,000 slaves taken directly to USA.
          All these under British rule before 1776. For the next 40 years the (slavers themselves) English blocked the sea with the wunderbar British navy.

          Meantime
          ….Some 5 million enslaved Africans were taken to the Caribbean, almost half of whom were brought to the British Caribbean (2.3 million). As planters became more reliant on enslaved workers, the populations of the Caribbean colonies changed, so that people born in Africa, or their descendants, came to form the majority.
          ——
          Each of the Spanish, English, Froggies colonies had more slaves than the entire USA.
          Won’t see that in a hollyweird movie.
          Hell NO !
          And the Portuguese took that many to Brazil alone.

          But hey the Argentine team at the FIFA world cup last year was a bit white.
          ha ha ha; not enough slaves, bro
          Shoulda had more slaves.

          plus the balance to central America.
          12 million slaves taken across the Atlantic, less than 5% went to USA
          Not how the story is told now is it !!
          the Poms were brutal bastards, be sure.

          the story of the Caribbean is bloody with the carib people essentially wiped out.
          Genocide by the English, French and Spanish.
          Such saints.
          Mitchener did one of his good, long, books on it called Caribbean

          Pirates,
          also misleading shit by the hollyweird crowd.
          “A privateer was a pirate with papers. As the name suggests, privateers were private individuals commissioned by governments to carry out quasi-military activities. They would sail in privately owned armed ships, robbing merchant vessels and pillaging settlements belonging to a rival country.”

        • The other thing about the French. If the British had not worked with Maori on the Treaty the French would have probably slaughtered the Maori and taken over NZ. The French had major scrap with the Maori in the late 1700s which involved the Maori first seeing the real power of the gun. It horrified them and eventually lead a few Maori chiefs making representations to the Queen asking for her protection in the early 1800s.

    Having said that it is great video from what I’ve seen so far ( I’m only part way through). He covers the email invention issue very well and we can see it is another case of big corporates and the military ganging up on the little guy, who unfortunately for them has all the proof.

  18. Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. Getting back together, they discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly Mother. The first said, “I built a big house for our Mother.” The second said, “I sent her a Mercedes with a driver.” The third smiled and said, “I’ve got you both beat. You remember how Mom enjoyed reading the Bible? And you know she can’t see very well any more. I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the entire Bible. It took Elders in the church 12 years to teach him. He’s one of a kind. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot recites it.” Soon thereafter, Mom sent out her letters of thanks, “Milton,” she wrote one son, “the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house.” “Gerald,” she wrote to another, “I am too old to travel any more. My eyesight isn’t what it used to be. I stay most of the time at home, so I rarely use the Mercedes. And the driver is so rude!” “Dearest Donald,” she wrote to her third son, “you have the good sense to know what your Mother likes. The chicken was delicious!”

    @CranmerWrites
    In May, BusinessDesk reported that a Christchurch social housing operator went into receivership owing creditors $10m. The company, Essex Property Ltd, is owned by Jason Lopas. The receivers’ report shows that last March, Fiona O’Hanlon registered a security interest over the company’s assets.

    Then, only two weeks later on 1 April 2022, Lopas incorporated a new company, Filo Property Ltd, in which he and O’Hanlon are directors. Notably, O’Hanlon also owns 50% of the shares of Filo Property which she holds jointly with the owner of Stuff, Sinead Boucher. The receivers will need to look closely at any transactions between Essex Property and Filo Property. On the face of it, a strange transaction for Boucher to be involved in.

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/08/08/why-christopher-luxon-welcomes-the-govts-net-zero-fund/
    National Party leader Christopher Luxon says his party welcomes the Government’s announcement an American multinational investment company will invest $2 billion in a “first of its kind” climate infrastructure fund.

    The fund, the ‘net zero’ fund, is aimed at helping New Zealand become one of the first countries in the world to reach 100% renewable energy.

    Today while on a visit to a school in Hamilton, Luxon said his party “really welcome that investment”.

    “It underscores exactly what we’ve been saying, which is that the world is awash with investment opportunities for companies and funds that actually want to invest in renewable energy.

    “I think the major challenge we’ve observed with this government is around consenting. So it’s fantastic, the investment is up to being made in New Zealand, we fully support it.”

    He said it was “good for New Zealand”.

    So.. The people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.
    We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff. The voters figured out they could vote themselves money
    from the treasury by electing people who promised to give
    them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.
    NZ is such a place.”

  24. Budget 2022: How $2 billion of emergency Covid funds were redirected

    Finance Minister Grant Robertson padded Budget 2022 with $2.05 billion from the remnants of the Covid-19 Response and Recovery Fund contrary to his undertakings that the enormous pot of emergency money be limited to direct, pandemic-related spending and over the Treasury’s objections.

    The Government took $1.05b from the fund and “reprioritised” the money to spend on the “cost of living payment” and extended cost reductions for motorists, both rushed into existence in light of surging inflation and polling that suggested a related ebb in the Labour Party’s popularity.

  26. Chinese-Owned Bio Lab Update: Million-Dollar Mice, Fake Bankruptcy, Recalled COVID-19 Tests, PPP Loans, and Tax Credits

    It began with a garden hose attached illegally to a warehouse near the center of town. The building was supposed to be vacant. When code enforcement officers from the city went to investigate, they discovered that it was in use and observed several code violations.

    According to a declaration from Humero Prado, Assistant Director of Fresno County Public Health…investigators discovered that one room of the warehouse was used to produce COVID-19 and pregnancy tests. In other rooms, investigators found blood, tissue and other bodily fluid samples.

    Health officials discovered nearly 1,000 lab mice, 200 of which were already dead.

    Also found were thousands of vials, many of which contained biohazardous materials including human blood, and other unknown substances.

    “A lot of these labels have been removed from bottles so there was only so much testing. We could do those chemicals,” Prado continued.

    An onsite representative for Prestige, Wang Zhaolin, told investigators that mice were “genetically engineered to catch and carry the COVID-19 virus.” Due to the conditions, the mice were euthanized.

    These [samples found by the CDC] included both bacterial and viral agents, including: chlamydia, E. Coli, streptococcus pneumonia, hepatitis B and C, herpes 1 and 5 and rubella. The CDC also found samples of malaria.

  27. The assets NZ have put forward as collateral for the two billion was our coal, gas and oil reserves. Hence, the closing of Marsden Point. There is a reason they called themselves Blackrock.
    Maori elite think they have done a cunning deal…they haven’t. They’ve sold out everyone.

    BlackRock is one of the world’s biggest corporate drivers of climate chaos and ecocide. Not only is it a major culprit behind the global climate breakdown because of its huge fossil fuel investments, but its wishy-washy climate promises and support for false climate solutions fail to address the root causes of the climate crisis.

    To start, BlackRock oversees one of the world’s biggest fossil fuel portfolios. It is a top owner of the world’s most powerful and most polluting oil and gas corporations – from ExxonMobil to Chevron and from ConocoPhillips to Marathon Petroleum. It recently led a consortium of investors that plowed $15.5 billion into Aramco, Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil and gas company – and one of the world’s dirtiest fossil fuel companies.

    • Blackrock is predominately an index fund manager. This means that they hold companies in their portfolios in line with the companies weighting in the index. They don’t specifically choose which companies to invest in. Inevitably they will hold the large energy companies and due to the amount they manage it will be a highish percentage of the shares.
      Where Blackrock are a problem is that they use the shareholding to vote & influence boards, when as beneficial owners only for a raft of private individuals and super funds etc they shouldn’t be doing so. Being super woke they are influencing investee companies in all the wrong directions.

  33. Chinese Regime
    Public Anger Grows After Floodwaters Deliberately Diverted to Save China’s CapitalMany towns in China’s Hebei Province have sustained severe flooding due to the Chinese communist regime’s deliberate use of the locales as a “moat” to protect China’s capital city of Beijing and the new political hub of Xiong’an, following the strongest storm in northern China in years.

    The storm, super typhoon Doksuri, reached northern China on July 29 and was the strongest to hit Beijing and the surrounding areas in Hebei Province in 140 years, triggering flash floods and landslides.

    Provincial officials said on Aug. 3 that the floodwaters might take a month to completely recede. According to state media CCTV, modeling estimated that another 300 million to 400 million cubic meters of water needed to flow to the ocean.

  34. ‘Petition Launched Calling On Grant Robertson To Slash Government Waste’
    (Courtesy of The Daily Examiner NZ)

    This will no doubt be of interest, although in writing this sentence ‘“It is time for Minister Robertson to prove that he is capable of getting spending under control in order to stop inflation and create the confidence for people to invest in New Zealand and grow the economy.” the article’s author shows that he is unaware that robbo (In typical labour fashion, and following well-set precedent for such things by that party), has absolutely NO financial background, experience or ‘business’ knowledge and that despite advice being offered, he considers that he ‘knows better’ than Treasury and it’s professionals.

    With credentials like those (And again emulating his NZLP predecessors), it’s no wonder he’s got the country into the state we’re in.

  35. Blackrock isn’t investing anything. It wants to be the ticket clipper in between the developments and those with nothing better to do with their ‘cash’ than give it to them to manage. It’s necessary here because we don’t have the funds to do it ourselves and this method keeps it off the Public balance sheet. Our funds are tied up in other places.

    (Let’s say it all turns to custard and the whole lot is written off. Who loses their money? Not Blackrock, that’s for sure)

    • That is correct VK I just posted above about this. They are a horribly woke organisation who use other peoples money to influence the companies their fund invests in. They are ticket clippers but their only real difference from other fund managers is the sheer size of the amount of funds they control. If the new NZ fund loses money it will be the suckers around the world that will lose money, like people investing in AMP or ASB Kiwisaver funds.

He shouldve kept his mouth shut about it from the start imo and only let plams to scrap it see the light of day once a deal had been done.

      Dunno why youre too worried about it anyways, stock up on ammo before 2025 and the register isnt gunna affect you for another 5yrs… alot can happen in 5 yrs esp if money is tight and the register isnt seen as being effective.

  38. The latest fatal shooting in Auckland was done by another upstanding citizen wearing an electronic ankle bracelet. “… the number of breaches has risen, but they don’t have any evidence to suggest what may be driving it”. Are they kidding??!!!! Heads need to roll! //////////

    Figures obtained by Newshub show the number of people charged with breaching home detention conditions hit a new high of 2035 in the year to June.

    “I think what we’re seeing is more dangerous offenders who in the past would have been in prison, are now on home detention,” said National’s justice spokesperson Paul Goldsmith.

    Corrections told Newshub they acknowledge the number of breaches has risen, but said they don’t have any evidence to suggest what may be driving it.

    However, they said they take non-compliance “extremely seriously” and hold offenders to account if they breach their conditions.

      • they have.
        So of course he was a good guy. Leader of the gang.
        Point England homicide: Patched Head Hunter Charles Pongi killed, fears of further violence amid fresh underworld feud
        Pongi was a member of the Head Hunters East chapter based in the gang’s traditional heartland of Glen Innes, one suburb over from the reserve where he suffered the fatal gunshot wound.

        Police have launched a homicide investigation and are still hunting for his killer.

        The Herald can reveal Pongi was shot during a fracas between two groups of people linked respectively to the Head Hunters and Rebels gangs.

        The confrontation came amid a fresh feud between the two outlaw motorcycle clubs, who until recently had been on relatively good terms.

        It is unclear what exactly is driving the conflict, but Saturday’s deadly clash was not the first time the simmering tensions between the two gangs had boiled over into a public confrontation.

        When asked by the Herald yesterday about the spate of recent shootings, Prime Minister Chris Hipkins defended the Government’s record on law and order and cited initiatives including the new firearms register, recently criticised over a leak of gun-owners personal information.

        “I believe the public have reason to be confident in the work the Government has done around crime,” Hipkins said. “There’s always more to be done in the law and order space … I don’t think what we’re seeing at the moment is acceptable.”

  40. OUR POLICY: Agriculture and climate,

    Background
    Agriculture accounts for 82% of New Zealand’s exports. Farming is the backbone of the economy; we need farmers to be successful if we want New Zealand to be prosperous.
    Over regulation is putting massive financial and mental stress on farmers, with many seeing no alternative but to leave farming. Agricultural emissions pricing, and introducing Significant Natural Areas (SNAs), an Indigenous Biodiversity National Policy Statement, a new Freshwater National Policy Statement and Resource Management Act (RMA) reform will combine to significantly damage to the rural economy.
    The dramatic expansion of carbon farming is destroying food-producing land and replacing it with pine trees. This does not benefit rural communities or the economy, and will further increase the cost of food, and living.
    Farmers are frustrated, councils are overloaded, and the Government is developing policy with little understanding of the cumulative effect on farmers. There is an over emphasis on rules and restrictions and not enough focus on finding new ways to achieve better environmental outcomes.
    New Zealand needs to take a sensible approach to climate policy. Recent extreme weather events have highlighted the need to invest more in climate adaptation to protect the billions invested in infrastructure, food producing land and property. We also need to protect our food producing land from being turned into carbon forests, which harms our wider economy and rural communities. And we need more transparency and scientific rigour when making significant and long-lasting decisions about climate policy.

    Our solution
    DemocracyNZ will focus on improving the environment through best practice management, and move away from over-regulation.
    We will isolate local environmental risks and provide landowners with expert advice to decide what actions are most appropriate.
    Farmers know their land better than anyone and should be part of identifying solutions. Environmental monitoring will be a focus to help identify what changes need to be introduced, and monitor progress.
    We also recognise that we are already world leaders in emissions-efficient food production and our farmers should be encouraged rather than penalised for this achievement.
    1. We will veto any new taxes on farming to keep food affordable, support our rural economy, and support work to improve emissions efficiency.
    An emissions tax is a deeply flawed concept that fails farmers, consumers and the climate. New Zealand is one of the world’s most emissions-efficient food producers. Taxing New Zealand

    YOUR VOICE, IT’S WITH US.
    Farmers will shift production to less emissions-efficient countries and risks increasing global emissions. It would also devastate the rural economy as more farmers are forced out of business.

    DemocracyNZ will update emissions accounting practices to report on the warming effect rather than gross emissions. Our policy will help global consumers understand the difference between the two.
    We are already world leaders in emissions efficiency and can continue to improve, without introducing a farming tax.
    DemocracyNZ does not support the principle of requiring farmers to meet environmental social governance scores. These impose a raft of additional requirements on farmers which will increase food production costs, similar to a tax, and could also reduce food production.
    We will:
    • Veto the He Waka Eke Noa ‘farming tax’ and any other proposed taxes targeting farming, including a fertiliser tax.
    • Work with the primary sector to maintain and improve our world-leading emissions efficiency, and continue to improve farm profitability, without taxation or subsidy.
    • Introduce warming-based accounting for methane, based on the latest science on methane.
    • Improve public awareness of New Zealand’s agricultural gold standard low climate impact farming.
    2. We will focus on improving environmental outcomes through locally targeted actions rather than regulation.
    DemocracyNZ hold an ‘Outcomes over Regulations’ approach, which would do away with the majority of environmental regulations and replace them with voluntary integrated farm plans in rural areas.
    To identify local environmental issues and monitor progress, a nation-wide network of catchment groups will be created, which will include landowners and regional and district council representatives. Catchment groups will prioritise local actions to improve the environment – and these actions will be included into integrated farm plans. The groups will monitor water quality and report regularly on progress. Regional councils will allocate resources and expertise to support local catchment groups. Water quality goals would be based on what is reasonable and practical for each specific catchment.
    With a focus on carefully monitoring local water quality and identifying actions to address issues in each catchment, we will remove the national N cap. Fertiliser costs have risen rapidly in recent years, and this creates a strong incentive for farmers to avoid unnecessary fertiliser use. With their strong focus on improving water quality, catchment groups can advise on best management practice nitrogen use on vulnerable soils.
    Landowners would have the choice whether to opt into the catchment group system, or follow existing council rules.
    In time, this scheme would replace the need for consents and environmental regulations outside effluent management and water takes consents. It will dramatically reduce the compliance burden on farmers and councils; and focus time and resources on improving the environment, rather than litigating rules in court. This model would only apply in rural areas.
    YOUR VOICE, IT’S WITH US.
    We will:
    • Scrap SNAs, the NPS on Biodiversity, NPS on Freshwater and overhaul the RMA.
    • Replace current environmental regulations (excluding effluent and water takes) with voluntary integrated farm plans delivered via catchment groups in rural areas.
    • Set up a catchment group scheme with landowners and council representatives which reports to Government annually.
    • Increase monitoring to improve our understanding of water quality and assess progress.
    • Regional and local councils should also develop an action plan to support catchment groups.
    3. Methane is a short-lived gas, so we will promote adopting a more accurate measurement methodology, based on the latest science.
    Short and long-lived greenhouse gases cannot be equally compared for their impact on climate. Methane makes up a small percentage of our country’s total emissions.
    We will:
    • Co-ordinate with other agricultural nations to push the IPCC to report on short-lived greenhouse gases, drawing on the latest science.
    4. We will refocus spending and research on adapting to a changing climate. We will repeal and replace the Climate Change Response Act 2002.

    New Zealand has already made significant investment into climate mitigation science. Technology will develop over time and be adopted when it is fit-for-purpose.
    We will invest in building resilient infrastructure to protect our existing investment of billions in infrastructure and property from severe weather events and natural disasters.
    We will withdraw New Zealand from the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS). Globally, we are seeing businesses find their own solutions to reduce emissions. With many households struggling with rising costs, emissions pricing would continue to drive up living costs further in future.

    We will:
    • Prioritise research and spending into climate adaptation to reduce impacts on communities, farms and businesses.
    • Repeal the Climate Change Response Act 2002 and subsequent amendments and replace it with a Climate Adaptation Act.
    • Withdraw New Zealand from the Emissions Trading Scheme and focus on voluntary efforts to reduce emissions.
    5. We will stop carbon credits for forestry in order to reduce carbon farming and associated rural job losses, and protect food-producing land.
    The dramatic expansion of carbon farming is destroying food-producing land and replacing it with a sea of pine trees, which does not benefit rural communities or the economy. This will further increase the cost of food and living.
    DemocracyNZ will withdraw from the ETS, which would stop all carbon credit payments for forestry plantations and shift land use away from carbon farming.
    YOUR VOICE, IT’S WITH US.
    Carbon credits are effectively a subsidy for tree planting – and this policy would mean no subsidies are provided for tree planting on productive land.
    We will:
    • Stop tree plantations from receiving carbon credits.
    6. We will require climate research that informs policy decisions to apply a scientific method, to ensure decisions are robust and evidence based.
    Climate science has shifted away from using the traditional scientific method and relied more on scientific opinion, and flawed modelling. The scientific method involves testing a theory with observational data or experiment. It requires transparency which allows others to replicate results.
    We need hard facts and complete data to make informed policy decisions for our future.
    We will:
    • Require climate research that informs policy decisions to apply a scientific method, to ensure decisions are robust and evidence based.
    • Encourage transparent public and scientific debate on climate policy and decisions
