You can tell when Winston Peter’s and NZ First are struggling in their internal poll as the scourge of NZ Politics when they resort to trivialize a sexual assault and call it a unfounded fiction of innuendo. Peter’s goes on to say it was a woman called Paula Bennett making all sorts of vile allegations by the way of innuendo, ‘without a fact to back it up’.This with all NZ First MP’s led by Shane Jones and Tracey Martin https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/09/winston-peters-labels-labour-sexual-assault-claims-innuendo-nz-first-mps-back-him-up.html up to back him up.
We need rid of this evil prick as there should be no place in politics for a person that thinks a sex assault is trivial.
Amazing how they all speak with permission once Winston has stated his position lol.
Tracey Martin says Winston “has a point”. Nevermind about the victims Tracey.
Stewart Nash let slip this morning that Peters is recovering from major surgery and had an infection.
I thought he just had an op for an old rugby injury.
Mike Hosking commented that Peters had lost weight and appeared to have a breathing problem.
Tell someone who cares…..
Fuck him. A scourge on humanity.
Will he last till the next election?
Problem is he’s still breathing.
When the frontal Lobotomy failed a Brain transplant from the local Pig Farm worked a treat so look forward to a much improved performance from peters, I am reliably informed however that rejection problems are common after a short while so effects may not be long lasting.
I read what Peters had to say last night. What a vile little man !! To me he has gone well beyond politics, this is Peters the “man” speaking and referring to it all as rumours and “I know facts that you do not”. Well Peters the 12 women know ALL the facts –pull you head in and I would say show some humanity but I do not you have a speak in your runty body.
oops typo –speck not speak. Can we have an edit function please.
What’s up with Duncan’s hair, it looks like it has been hacked from the back.
He looks like he’s been sitting too close to a hot fire. Flushed and blotchy. A face for radio this morning. All those early morning starts and the winter lurgy taking its toll.
The just commented on it, I wouldn’t go back to that barber.
Wear a hat!
He will need a number two.
The hair is falling out with all the stress!
Iran cuts off talks with United States after being blamed for Saudi Arabia oil attacks
If it was not Iran that launched the attacks, then they probably helped the Houthis to do it.
Iran is a bad influence in the world, and Saudia Arabia is not much better.
The Houthis had to get the weaponary and training from somewhere. As Frank Gardener (BBC Security correspondent) said yesterday on RNZ the levels of security around the facilities make it impossible for it to be an inside job. But the attack was almost certainly launched from inside Saudi.
I ca still remember my mother explaining to me what was going on when the American hostages were taken in 1979 in Iran- I’ve been pissed off at those ragheads ever since. B1 bombers please Mr. Trump. I’ve been waiting 40 years. Turn the place to glass.
Did Winston have brain surgery while on sick leave as if he did it hasn’t fixed the problem and is he really the man to lead the country while Jacinda hides from the stench of corruption from the problems she has left.
This is about Winston trying to inact utu on Paula Bennett at the expense of the Labour sex assault victims nothing more or less it’s revenge that he can’t prove in the courts, so he will lie and create deceit to have his way.
Glad to see Winston so worried. You joined ’em, you go down with the ship. Ron Mark is the only guy you have who’s worth a shit, and he belongs with the ACT party.
Where is the outrage from the #MeToo MSM warriors this morning? If Simon Bridges had called the Labour sexual assault scandal “unfounded fiction of innuendo”. The media would be hunting him down and camping outside his office claiming a scalp as they cheered each other on.
My wife said to me earlier that Peters’ bit about ” I know some facts that you don’t” is exactly what a 4-5 year old kid would say.
Kākāpō population reaches record after bumper breeding season despite infection
Great news for one of our favourite native birds
It is good news alright, I have always taken the view that private breeders could farm any of our endangered species for a profit, and we would have Kiwi running around the neighbourhood.
Make them edible and you’ll have farms of them.
Probably climate change.
Did the GDP figures come out yesterday?
Tomorrow – Stats NZ has a schedule of when things are due to drop here
I’m guessing the PM won’t want to be in the house tomorrow to answer questions about how she’s successfully crashed the economy. But at least Winston is back so he can dismiss the GDP figures as “innuendo and gossip”.
Haven’t you heard, “it’s all the international economic head winds”.
Our very own ‘tail winds’ more like.
I don’t know, you will have to ask Cindy always Lying!
Now there’s some international union of climate freak journalists who will bombard us with lies and scary photos daily, as if we haven’t had to put up with it for years as it is. 4000 days left huh?
These idiots- who number in millions now- are convinced beyond a doubt. Might as well sit back and watch ’em writhe as the free market and Big Fossil Fuel Co’s continue to give us the freedom and lifestyle we enjoy.
Looking forward to the first time a f*cking vegan stands in front the meat selection at MY local supermarket hee hee! Ever heard of a “happy slapper”? Think Charles Bronson in the Central Park scene in “Death Wish” 🙂
Newshub trying to bury the Labour scandal by rehashing the JLR affair and how Simon handled it.
Simon Bridges says he did everything right during Jami-Lee Ross scandal
“National Party leader Simon Bridges has defended his conduct during his party’s scandal involving former member Jami-Lee Ross, as the Labour Party becomes embroiled in one of its own.”
It really is disgusting. Rather than focus on the victims and trying to ensure that this culture of repeated sexual assault within Labour’s ranks are dealt to, the “journalist” Katie Fitzgerald decides to help them get out of it by making National look like the bad guys.
Wait for it, a couple of days from now or maybe as late as next week it’ll be praises for how well Jacinda has handled this situation.
Do you mean Katie Bradford. The bouncy blond on TV1? “No matter what we say, no matter what we do we can’t get the polls to shift”, that Katie Bradford?
No, I’m talking about the “journalist” that wrote the article you linked.
Oops, apologies. Hadn’t remembered that Katie.
“Katie is a digital producer for Newshub based in Auckland. She moved up in 2012 to study media at the University of Auckland after growing up in Christchurch. An avid lover of animals, especially dogs, she will jump at the chance for any pet related stories.”
lol what a shock. shes in her mid-20s.
stuff and the herald = 22 – 26 year old girls telling us what to think.
cant believe readership is down.
One of her pet-related stories?
And why am I not surprised that Katie is the same one promoting Ardern’s meeting with Trump.
JA will be loathing the moment she has to share the stage with Trump, who is a man who represents everything she hates about the world. Alpha male, white, NRA supporter, and the most powerful man in the universe is a climate denier. 🙂 (and yes get used to it for four more years!!!)
Apparently she “buried” the announcement at the bottom of yesterdays list of PM topics she was to announce to the press. Cindy and President Trump are meeting in a room somewhere in NY. She is not being invited to the White House. She will be hating the idea of having to meet with the President who she despises.
President Trump will have men and women around him carrying full blown machine guns! None of those sissy semiauto guns! Better tell Jethro to behave himself and keep his fingers off Ivanka, or he will get his arse hande to him!
Bet he’s in raptures at wasting his time on a SLG too. //
Jethro will have first hand experience of comparing his pardner to Ivanka – shit next to sugar, enough to turn a man to drugs.

I see her Mum is running in local body politics up north.
Where abouts up here? I need to know who not to vote for.
Te Hiku ward Far North.
Thanks Rachael, at least Hone isn’t standing. I’m in the Whangarei area and let me assure you there is nobody interesting standing here.
So Duncan wants National to behave more like Labour? More sex? More coverups? More ineptitude?
You left out the plain lazy!
Which one is the toddler?

Interesting that Jethro is now firing out crap news items.
Is this possibly an attempted diversion for the liars clusterfuks.

Police ‘came down hard’: Waitangi Tribunal declines urgency for police prosecution claim
“In the seven years that followed, Morrison accrued 40 convictions, spent time in prison and fell in with gang members. He described the impact of policing minor offences as cumulative, with each new conviction only adding to the penalties that followed.
“I don’t remember ever getting a warning or diversion or anything,” Morrison said in an affidavit. “I have criminal convictions for littering, insulting language and being in a bar. Even the most minor things, police were always there to come down on me hard.”
All racism, no personal responsibility. How about you don’t commit any crimes.
Shame we can’t export him!
Jacinda Ardern needs to live up to ‘woke progressive left’ reputation – Simon Bridges
“You’ve got someone here who is becoming a hero of the woke progressive left around the world, now if she’s to live up to that I think there are other issues she’ll need to raise.”
Lord of the Rings TV show will film in New Zealand
“We are grateful to the people and the Government of New Zealand and especially Auckland for supporting us during this pre-production phase,” the executive producers continued. ”
So nothing from the unions on workers being exploited by “corporate America”. How surprising!
Tova O’Brien: PM Jacinda Ardern needed to act sooner on sexual assault allegations
But it shouldn’t have come to that. The Prime Minister could have sought the same information she received last week, six weeks ago after learning about the sexual assault allegations. She could have taken the action she took last week which resulted in the resignation of both the party president and the accused, six weeks ago.
Bullshit. The Prime Minister knew. If Grant Robertson knew 3 months ago, Jacinda Ardern would have known. But moreover; these types of problems have been evident in Labour for how long now?
Since the youth camp?
They have them every year and you don’t think this is the first groping that has occurred do you.
One of the Welsh rugby guys fell foul of the betting rules for the RWC in Japan. He is already on a plane back to Wales and his replacement has been called up. Far less serious than sexual assault allegations. That’s how leadership works Cindy.
Absolutely, otherwise, their relationship has seriously broken down. I am sure that I read that they were politically joined at the hip under Helen.
Something adorable to break up your day. Hope you are enjoying it as much as this little guy
New poll. Good one Ed. ?
So, they have the money to pay Fletchers?
This could get messy for Jacinda as the taxpayer won’t be happy.
Can’t be important as she got her arse suckered to a first class. Do you think she had advance warning! See you when I get back, suckers. I’m off to the RWC and chrissy shopping in NY!
Neither will shareholders.
I heard one of the ‘SOUL’ maoris saying they don’t have any money and it will “be up to the Crown to pay”. Does she realise when she says “the Crown” that she means the hardworking taxpayer?!
The news is more unreadable than usual as the media try and restart their Jacinda Mania bullshit.
Dunno why that was moderated. Sorry
Quote from the late Christpher Hitchens.
“Very many people put up with political lying, and political illusions, and political propaganda because if they were to denounce it they would have to admit that for many decades they had, themselves, been fooled.”
Goff doing it for his ‘descendents’? What about the rest of us? Tamihere Sieg Heils.
A refrain of the Black Power or Mongrel Mob isn’t it?
Woke his lily white arse! Didn’t it!
If Labour give in to this land protest, then they will open the gates more claim to private land.
You want it?
You buy it!
No you do not get any free money!
Probably cost three times what Fletchers paid!
You got a shit load of free money in TOW settlements, spend some, if there is any left!
Fletchers has come out and said they have been kept in the dark since Cindy put a stop on any building at Ihumatao. Now they are stuck with a useless piece of land they bought in good faith.
Magic Talk are in full discussion on who will pay, if we will pay, why should we pay.

Forgive me, but who is the lady in the heading photo?
Nicola Ferguson Sturgeon is a Scottish politician who is the current First Minister of Scotland and leader of the Scottish National Party, in office since November 2014. She is the first woman to hold either position.Wikipedia
I think she remindes me of someone on the telly!
Like her counterpart Jeremy Corban, she is not slow coming forward on TV. She wants Scotland to remain as part of the EU come hell or high water.
She looks like Judge Judy.

Lucky she did not go between truck and its trailer. That would have hurt!
She had better buy a lotto ticket and hand in her liecence! It’s on stuffed!
This one Sooty.
Distraction put elderly couple on collision course with heavy freight truck
$150.00 fine I believe is the cost of that distraction. Car will need a little panel beating too. She was very lucky.
Pity the poor truckie. I had an idiot who made a right hand turn out of an intersection straight into the back steering axle of the D2418 stocktruck I was driving through Stortford Lodge. The car went under the truck & the tandem rear wheels drove over the back of it.
Physics demands that one tonne in a collision with thirtyfive is a mismatch. I got out of the cab expecting that I’d find something resembling steak mince but the driver & sole occupant escaped with a few scrapes & bruises.
First & hopefully only prang. It knocks the stuffing out of a man.
You only have to watch the idiot drivers taking on trucks on Utube to understand people don’t think of the consequences of taking on 40 tonnes. Pity the truck drivers with some of those who don’t understand trucks take a lot further to stop.
Stopping distances aren’t too bad WG. Even in the 70s if you hit the anchors with a well maintained full air system* you could near roll up the road underneath you.
The biggest problem is that usually you’ve got nowhere to go to avoid a collision.
* Useless snippet of info for Wednesday. In a car you have servo (vacuum) assistance. Light trucks have air (compressed) over hydraulics. The bigger rigs have full air which holds the shoes off the drum. When you hit the brakes the air is dumped & the spring loaded shoes hit the drum. Hence the long strips of rubber you see from time to time on the road.
I’ve witnessed a few vehicular accidents and near misses, where I am sure the drivers would have had to have their car seats surgically removed from their bums.
The quality of our roads, is in general, is quite abysmal though.
Some of the worst are in Northland. The current government of ideologues & fools deserve to be individually taken out & publicly fucked over their refusal to put money into SH1.

I would think that they can with the sex scandal, as there is too much shit to spread!

Breaking (Good) News
Mark Zukerberg says that he will not meet Ardern.
He owns facebook. Of course he won’t meet her. Who would have a book with that face on it?
When will we see a poll to see how politics in NZ is going or are the pollsters waiting for Jacinda’s photo shoot and media interviews especially with Donald Trump pan out while she tours Japan and New York .
Will the overseas media take her to task on the sexual assault allegations that’s has more than tarnished the Jacinda brand while in New York .
I bet she hasn’t the gumption to mention Human rights atrocities to him. Cos of that hypocrisy thingy stuck to her.
Closer to home the Ardern brand has taken a hiding. The cook & I had lunch with two of our grand-daughters today. Both are stroppy little sods in their twenties who tend to wave the banner for feminism & have been known to sympathise with the MeToo brigade.
Reading between the lines, I doubt that photoshoots of Neve or a wedding are going to help. They’re shitty & feel betrayed by Chompers.
O’dear! That’s bad. How sad. 🙂
The pound metoo movement has turned out to be fizzler. False accusations and stuff.
I think few young women in NZ haven’t encountered a slimebag in their life.
And for others to protect or sing the praises of these slimebags is a real No/No.
Both of my daughters have friends who have had very nasty experiences with creeps.
Anyone associated with the creeps is tainted by that relationship.
That’s about the way I see it too Maggy. By association Cindy has tainted herself irrecoverably in the youthful eyes of those who tend to see things in black & white.
I don’t think that they will forgive her.
