  1. 6 years ago a certain smelly skinny emaciated piece of shit was given the treasury benches by another smelly fat little dwarf and the 1st thing they did was virtue signal to the whole world and end any new production or drilling for natural gas in our country.
    Now that same group of morons have conceded that gas will be needed for some time to come to provide energy for our economy, 6 years wasted and we are back where we started or worse ,my guess is all the specialty engineering staff who left our Country when horseface made her move will never return here to start the process again so as usual we are fucked, I have never hated a group of people like I hate the gaggle of fuckwits that make up Arderns labour party.

  2. I you ever thought Tamati Coffey is a Wanker, well you are right.

    He says he is and claims that he actually is, a natural born, Wanker. My evidence that he is an actual Wanker.

    Tamati Coffey claims to be the father of Kiri Allan’s child. Now, you can almost guarantee Tamaiti Coffey, a Faggot of some note did not shag Kiri Allan, a Stamp Licker of also, of some note, nor I am sure did Tamati Coffey, shag the child’s Mother, also a Stamp Licker, so to get to the Turkey Baster stage to be Kiri Allan’s child’s father, well Tamati Coffey would have confirmed his status, that of natuaral born, Wanker.

    “The pair’s first stop was at Uawa (Tolaga Bay), where his grandmother Lucy hails from. Speaking to a packed audience at the fire station, he revealed another close connection to their soon-to-be former MP.

    “Kiritapu has a daughter, Hiwaiterangi. I am Hiwaiterangi’s dad.”

    Now, I thought either Kiri Allan or her Partner of the time and Mother of the child, Natalie Coates for who Allan was, at the time, married too. would have kept the fathers name, private, but this fool Coffey and the former Labour Cabinet Minister, Kiri Allan appear not to care who knows their private matters, so I guess anyone can share it.

    All I can say is, the poor child, to have a Father of such low IQ.

      “for two years the men would gather the chosen man’s semen when they had sex, transfer it to a cup and take it to the women’s home. Eventually one of the women became pregnant.”

      What a great selling point to voters, forget law and order, forget health and educuction, forget the economy just vote for me cuz…. “i supplied jizz in a turkey baster to your ex mp who is now a criminal and self destructed her career, vote for me we’re best mates too”

    • Well,a moments reflection. Gays are often ambidextrous depending on the day and the fantasy drug they are taking.
      The question here is who was the he and who was the she and di d2 shes get it on, a he and a she or 2 he’s.
      Then of course there are the other husbands and wives of each and how do we know which is which?
      Did they have a “key in the Middle” type party in the Wharaenui or some local hot pool?

      Are Carmens gay resorts still operating in Wellington?
      Who did mega fighter bash to get a head?
      How many others were at the party and what did t cost the taxpayer.

  3. TAH, That limp wristed soy boy probably had to overdose on viagra to obtain a boner long enough to have a wank, you’re right the children have no great future with a mother and father who are losers and drunks, don’t forget in the labour caucus this is normal behavior along with lying failure and laziness.

    • @rev: your comment is typical of the kind of unacceptable opinions which have been erased from chats and social media worldwide.

      This is also true of many of the comments here on this blog – and for that I THANK YOU ALL AND ED and LONG MAY YSB CONTINUE TO THRIVE 👍✔️😁

      • Eurokiwi, We must make this type of comment, regardless of who wins in October it’s going to be against the law to do so within 12 months of the election, having Arderns thug police force turn up at the door with a warrant for hate speech violations will become as common as getting banned from social media for saying “fuck”,you can bet your house on it.
        I refuse to stop using that tallentless cnut Arderns name when addressing this type of thing as she may be gone but we must never forget the filthy communist tyrant is more responsible for the situation we find our country in than any other single person.

    Here in New Zealand “Choices” were kept open.

    8th October 2021….. Act would change the law so setting health and safety measures, such as requiring vaccine certificates, is permitted, and cannot be subject to claims of a breach of privacy or discrimination. ….

    So good to have a “Choice” in not going to work, to be dropped from your job, if not jabbed, so difficult earn money, not to feed the family, and the Choice the bank will make when payments are not made on the mortgage.
    Or the land lord makes the Choice of No rent money & wants the Choice of having someone in that hovel that will pay the money.

    • Try a month later S1, The first politician on parliament to call for alternatives to the mandates.
      https://www.nzherald.co.nz/the-country/news/david-seymour-on-vaccine-mandate-and-groundswell-protest/6UMJLWXL6X4S4PJW46IGBSMAGI/

      Imo hes still a douche but was just trying to please karen and kens of the electorate. Remember that covid had piss all to do with a virus and everything to do with politics and power.
      If you were in any politicians position at the time what would you have done?
      Gone against it, pissed off 85%+ of the public, massive slaughtering by media and destroy your career?

      If you lot are all about those who stand up for freedoms but cant stomach ACT then why flock to a lying ex cop and not brian tamaki?
      He went to jail to prove a point and stand up for our freedoms. Many of his policies are better then dnzs junk aswell.

        • Not quite. He does a lot of good in poorer communities. The con is how much money goes into public projects… and how much goes into his bishops salary. Given the missus was recently on Facebook gushing that she couldn’t wait to receive her new top of the range AMG Merc Suv, I would say the good bishop is handsomely paid for his efforts. I wont hold it against anyone who becomes envious once you see what these vehicles look like. Hooker Phil would look good in one. This is only the midsize model.😒😒😒

          • ….Given the missus was recently on Facebook gushing that she couldn’t wait to receive her new top of the range AMG Merc Suv,
            —-
            Well let us pray to Bishop Brian’s god that the Merc was not on the ship that caught fire !!

            Look, if he earns some decent coin and brings on board people who tithe 10% of income but belong to a family that is not a gang family causing grief to others, overall, I view it as a win.

            I have attended some of BT’s speeches at The Domain (note that S.I.S.) and had a brief chat to Hannah last time.
            They seem to be a proud family and actually great-grandparents in their mid 60s.
            Lots of breeding going on 🙂

            On balance they do more good than harm.
            Compare and contrast. They have used the Mormon model.
            tithing and so on. Significantly involved with the church .
            Destiny do parenting sessions esp. with men who have grown up without parenting and a decent father figure .
            It is more than just an hour on Sunday combined with significant guilt the rest of the week like catholics !!

            You hear little criticism of the well funded Mormon church – of which ardern was a member and her father still is, and yet I see them as pack of bastards.
            They strip money out of poor communities in NZ and in fact strip money out of extremely poor pacific islanders.
            For taking wads of money and investing in the USA they provide a couple of gyms and basketball court. Not a fair exchange. Bastards.

            And if you leave Destiny they don’t go all Scientology on you and harass you significantly.
            Another american ‘church’

            Overall, Destiny/Tamaki do more good than harm. Walk a mile in their shoes.

      • …. If you were in any politicians position at the time what would you have done? ….

        Truth be told in that Herald link, so not opposed ! but prefer a testing option.
        …. not a fan of the Government’s vaccine mandate …

        I recall a number of times during that time that Seymour, claiming he was a Party of Choice, but turned that into more like a weaponized “Hobson’s Choice”.
        I wrote many times on times on this blog how the Party of Choice had flipped a finger at Choice, & seriously gone flat, and only pursued options that were just minor tinkering with Ardern’s mandate policies.

        The fanfare of Seymour being vaxxed.

        1 min 33 secs :
        Perhaps this is where some have become Viagra-ated by Seymour which he raises himself. 🙂

        Then ok that sly trade off a month later to test,
        TEST Test, but still he was very ok with science & still very much ok on the Pfizer trials & tests.

        He actively worked for Ardern’s government like for the vaxx certficates & enhancing them
        so corporates could enforce them.
        https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/politics/covid-19-delta-outbreak-acts-david-seymour-says-employers-should-be-able-to-require-vaccination-of-workers-without-being-sued/AHGB2NX3LEH67HJNLSC4TBTR74/

        But like at the Wellington Protest, a sly meeting at a pub with some protesters.
        https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/461672/act-leader-david-seymour-meets-with-protesters-time-for-a-mature-de-escalation

        But the very next day 17th February 2022 signed up in compliance with Ardern, Luxon, Shaw & Maori Party in not meeting the protesters!
        Then a few more days later 20th of Feb moved to a more general declarationg against mandates.
        https://www.odt.co.nz/news/national/time-rethink-mandates-seymour

        In the mean time Winston Peters set himself up for the now near future election.

        Matt King, although not in government, not in the National Caucus declared NO to mandates.
        Sure he could see some votes, but he resigned over Luxon signing up with Ardern, Luxon, & Seymour that inherently were supporting mandates for vaxxes.
        Matt King would have been a shoo-in for the Northland electorate, back even then, if he just kept quiet.

        The problem I have is just what went on with Cranston & the DNZ board?
        Cranston had a reasonable profile being quite considered on the Carbon & Farming effects & attuned to just what was politically achievable in that field.

        Seymour earlier then wanting children jabbed.
        https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2021/10/coronavirus-david-seymour-says-govt-should-skip-medsafe-process-and-approve-vaccine-for-kids.html
        How far away was Seymour in then putting the position that no unjabbed kids allowed at play-centre, kindergarten, primary? as it was the Parents Choice & responsiblity.
        Any hint of a back down on that position he took. That he may have got it just a little wrong? Crickets! A sign that is how he would treat us in other ways when in power.
        In the mean time we find out that MedSafeNZ were quietly over ruled on the safety of mRNA vaccines, & it was passed by an unknown NZ “medical” committee, which by now Seymour would know about, but no further thought, as Seymour aligns with the science scientism is always right.

        Not a real hint from Seymour that things should really be looked into with more consideration.
        Seems not to be transparent

          • Simple fact laid out… dnz arent gunna get anywhere near enough votes to get to parliament.

            Your feelz arent enough to do it so if you want a change in govt what other realistic options are there?
            1. Not vote.
            2. Winnie
            3 . Act
            4. Nats

            Not voting = half a vote for labour govt.
            Winnie = potential labour or a govt that falls to bits mid term.
            Nats= more of the same.

            Act is far from perfect, i think hes a douche and i think us anti covid folk wouldve suffered far worse had nat/act been in power through covid/vax bullshit BUT covids done the worlds moving on and theres bigger issues to worry about.
            Bro governance
            Crime
            Education
            Health
            Economy
            Cost of living

            Big picture folks, stop being blinded by tunnel vision and your moronic covid butthurt. If you honestly think dnz is viable and going to get an mp or 2 in then youre as delusional as those that still support labour or greens, go seek some help for your mental issues.

            • In a way, it is just not the vote!
              It is the positioning of ourselves, and a hope that there is some influence in doing so when it is the only time politicians court us.

              To lever those politicians and even for the ones who may consider becoming or motivated to be a politician.
              Is one of the reasons I initially supported DNZ, to be a platform for some who may be even better than Matt King.

              I had voted ACT consistently, since its inception in 1996.
              I actually respect Roger Douglas when written to about the dubiousness of how steers & bulls were placed outside the “herd scheme” to be only in the current “market value” & was very pleased in his response in changing it to include them.

              But the way how the sale of state assets were conducted, NO.

              Because of Winston Peters I voted National for the first time in ages in 2017 to make sure that National was the largest Party that Winston Peters would side with. … no surprise at WP’s … yeah right ….

              Just as when WP said he would go with Labour in 1996 & jumped back to Bolger’s Nats to form a government.
              Winston Peters, even back last century, was shaping up to be a star & future Prime Minister.
              I still do not know what made him forgo that, as he was looking to be ahead of Jenny Shipley.
              So whatever he did say in his public criticisms was booted out of the Nats, in 1992 to come storming back with 17 seats including a clean sweep of the maori seats. … the maoris suckered ….
              Then supported Bolger’s National government 🙂

              Bill English 2017 sure did not have the charisma, but had the social welfare policies tightening up,
              And above all like shearing a sheep at a show, that showed he knew what work was, as that takes much time to learn & then make it look it easy, & had some ability, a damm good hand with the hand-piece. 🙂

              Then I reverted back to ACT for 2020.

              How ever now I want to influence, by putting them on notice, that I just do not just knee jerk jump to their Hobson’s “Choice”

              That list is a given “Bro–.. Edu…. Health, etc.. ” !
              But I want to bring to “heel” the arrogance, and that we do not just want platitudes as Seymour has been doing.
              Seymour wants votes, to gain power seems to be his bottom-line.

              If I can just give him a seed of doubt, some insecurity, not to be taken for granted.
              This is the only time before the election that some of us, the more the merrier, & the more effective, have to make him think & consider some issues more deeply, & check his principles.
              To understand just what principles he has, or can be further developed.
              Sometimes lessons can be painful, but I do NOT want the divisive deceitful Lab. Green Maori Party.

              After the election, Seymour will be far too busy to think any more on such things, but surely he should have principles, where so far he seems to be shallow on.

              If indeed there will be a landslide, so many to National & ACT, it is indeed very tempting to keep on supporting DNZ.
              So why is it a close run thing between Labour & National? if ACT is a part of the answer.
              Yes the polls on DNZ seems to nullify things.
              The same as Julian Batchelors “Stop Governance” points are nullified?

              I want an effective government that will roll back the damage that has been deeply rooted in NZ’s government & institutions, and will be relentless in achieving that.

              The issue of what wording in a DNZ about Human Rights is a nothing when we see how much it was over ridden.
              It will always be overridden, like in a War, and that is how Ardern, Shaw & Maori Party see it, as a WAR.
              So also did National & ACT also put us at War, to have power & control over us in a very collective manner.
              Is it just a little bit pregnant?

              Like is it just a little bit War, in training and giving armaments & ammunition to shoot & kill Russians?

              • Well stated S1. Hubby and I both voted Act the last two elections but this time both intend to vote DemocracyNZ. How many other previous supporters will Act have lost? As for the polls, nobody has asked hubby or I what we think. I imagine others are equally hidden from the pollsters. Seymour may indeed not see the numbers he imagines.

  7. I was listening to ” The Country” on ZB the other day. They had a woman on from some dairy association. She explained that part on the reason for revising our dairy payouts to farmers was because China is now swimming in dairy products. The host, Jamie McKay, asked her if we had been stupid supplying our expertise and products to help China develop their dairy industry? After a long pregnant pause, she said ”that’s part of the problem.” I would say that’s most of the problem.

    When are we round eyes going to get it through our thick skulls that Chinese, and Asians in general, have a different mind set to us. Chinese have had it hard over the last 100 years. All moves China makes are utilitarian in nature. They don’t sweat the social bullshit we roundies create for ourselves. They only want to use us for what we can offer them in the short term. Then we are surplus to requirements.

  8. They had a story on Pravda 1 last night about how G.P’s are enrolling low risk patients so they get paid more money for doing less. All the usual suspects are up in arms about this of course, but who can blame them? This is exactly what is happening in schools, they get paid for the number of students enrolled not for the number that actually turn up. No wonder our education system is going down the drain, particularly when you have leadership like that soy boy headmaster Vaughan something unpronounceable who was asked what he thought about a possible cell phone ban. Instead of answering the question he started rabbiting on about how vapes are “killing our babies” then he stopped for a quick cry before continuing! This wanker shouldn’t be in charge of a lemonade stand. October the 14th can’t come soon enough for our country.

    In respect of how China views the world, I was told many years ago (In the declining days of the days of the British Empire) that the ONLY Westerners that the Chinese perceive as being their equivalents in respect of trade and general mindset are the English ‘Because they (The English) THINK LIKE US’.

    My informant also advised that the Chinese have absolutely NO time for the Americans, a people whom they perceive as being essentially stupid and ‘Like children and with a child’s intellect and understanding’, with this latter perception being well-illustrated by the Obama airport fiasco of 2016.

    That detail notwithstanding they DO however respect ‘Strength’ (Even ‘American’ strength) as witnessed by President Trump’s ‘All the Bells and Whistles’ reception when he visited in 2017, a reception in direct contrast to Obama’s visit the previous year.

    On the basis of how the Chinese view the world as outlined above, (And reinforced by various well-known, experience-gained, observations about the trustfullness or otherwise of the Oriental) New Zealand’s perception about how it was viewed by it’s Chinese customers was, at minimum naive, and certainly gullible, and as you note, once our usefulness has concluded and our exploitation ended, we (And all and any others) are quickly dumped.

    Finally, New Zealand is now, effectively, the ‘Dairy Colony’ for China in the same way that we were to ‘Mummy’ until Ted Heath and co ‘undid the apron strings’, so our experience is not new – it’s merely that our new ‘masters’ are somewhat tougher and more-demanding (‘Cunning’ and ‘Devious are words frequently used) than ‘The English’.

      Waves of them troublemakers made it to our shores .
      All out, lads.
      the ultimate whinging poms and malcontents.

      The Chinese that come here don’t tend to be pro communism as they have actually experienced it.
      Nor do they keep their job selections to a) gas station attendant; b) uber driver c) bottle store worker.

  10. “Even in high school, where I believed in truth with a capital T, I was willing to change my beliefs if someone came along to show me something better. That’s what the Pentagon Papers did for me. They pointed out that even the president was subject to the pressures of the military-industrial complex, the major institution of our land. And after reading this, I decided not to vote, that it wouldn’t matter either way. I figured that pretty much I’d get the same life no matter who was elected. I thought it was better not even to go into the voting booth.“

    This is an extract from a biography I am reading about the life of one of my idols. There were two of them who in later life became the most influential in the world as we know it. Without them, we wouldn’t have the stuff we have today.

      • Was this anti-semitism for the more than 80% of jews who are NOT semites ?

        Was it for support of the Middle Eastern Arab moozlems?
        Most of whom ARE Semites.

        The ones screwed over by the oh so saintly English at the Treaty of Versailles
        Where the Arabs sided with the poms against the Turks in order to win freedom; but were in fact fucked over by the English in 1919.
        Their territory divided up between England and France.
        Just to replace the Turks.

        Where, until the last minute, and another bullshit move by the English, Kuwait was meant to be part of Iraq.

        I apologise for actual history being mentioned as opposed to revised ‘history’ !!!
        These things I need to know.
        I have been deprogrammed.

        Is there any acknowledgment from the jews that they pale into comparison with the number of people killed last century via communism, and not by nazism?

        Will the jews stop whining long enough to acknowledge they are not the only game in town who were hard done by?

        Will these paperclip wearers display their support for the actual Semites who have been bombed relentlessly by the US war-monger forces for the last 30 years?
        Mainly on behalf of the 80% non semites.

  13. Two old friends caught up for lunch. Jake and Oliver hadn’t seen each other for over twenty years. “How have you been?” Oliver asked.

    “I’ve been good” Jake said, ordering from the menu. “I’m married with two great kids. Work is a bit dull but it pays the bills. How about you, how have you been?”

    Oliver puffed up his chest in pride “Well, I’ve been great! I’ve spent the last twenty years living the dream. Moved out from living with my parents early. I was lucky to be in a privileged position that I didn’t need to find work. I’ve spent most of time with hobbies like reading and going to the gym. Money hasn’t been too much of an issue for me either. And the action! I could hardly get laid back when we used to hang out, but now I’ve been getting laid consistently. Every single day.”

    Jake couldn’t help but listen and feel a bit envious about Oliver living the good life for the past 20 years. The two friends parted after lunch. Later that night Jake was having dinner with his family when the phone rang.

    “Excuse me, is this Jake?” a voice asked.

    “Yes it is, how can I help you?” Jake replied.

    “I’m trying to track down Oliver. You’re listed as one of his contacts, and one of the last people he’s seen,” the voice continued.

    “Okay”… Jake asked confused “Can I ask who this is?”

    “This is Oliver’s parole officer.”

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/08/10/west-aucklanders-furious-with-council-over-flood-buyouts/

    Tensions were high at a fiery community meeting on Tuesday night in West Auckland as hundreds of homes are still uninhabitable months after the city’s anniversary weekend floods.

    Six months on from the flooding, some of those present were having absolutely none of it.

    Emotions were running high as one man vented his frustrations during the meeting.

    “All I’ve heard tonight is bureaucratic bulls*** from Auckland City Council, process, process and bulls*** about process, all I heard was this is an unprecedented event bulls***.”

    A recent poll shows a “huge vote of no confidence” in New Zealand’s major candidates to be Prime Minister, a political commentator says.

    According to The Guardian Essential poll, released on Wednesday, only about 27 percent of New Zealanders believe Labour leader Chris Hipkins and National’s Christopher Luxon were appealing options to lead the country.

    Edwards said New Zealanders were “looking around at different” voting options “in a historically high way”.

    He said the poll also showed people were “grumpy about the state of the Government” – with 55 percent of New Zealanders believing the country was on the wrong track.

  17. Prime Minister Chris Hipkins says officials need to “look very closely” at whether home detention sentences are keeping the public safe and rehabilitating offenders.

    Home detention sentences, often are used as an alternative to prison, are when an offender has to be at an approved residence at all times. But their use has come under intense political scrutiny, especially after Auckland CBD shooter Matu Reid shot and killed two of his co-workers while on home detention last month. The shooting took place at a construction site. Reid, who was wearing an ankle bracelet allowed to go to the site because he worked there. He also injured six others.

  18. ⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️ It’s the perfect storm’: Job lost, mortgage denied… and settlement looming

    When he and his partner signed up to buy a townhouse in Rata St, Naenae, two years ago, the property market was quite different.

    They agreed to buy the two-bedroom property for $805,000.

    But now settlement is looming in three weeks’ time and they cannot get a loan to purchase it. The property has dropped in value, and the two investment properties they were using as equity in the deal have also dropped. He estimates that he has lost about $1 million in equity across them in the last year.

    On top of that, he has lost his job.

    “The market was fine then but by the time settlement came the market had completely flipped. We lost a lot of equity in our houses, we used a bit of the equity to put a deposit on the house.

    “We couldn’t get a mortgage, we need to settle in about three weeks and there’s no way we can get a mortgage.”⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️

    Also from same newsletter

    ” The National Party revealed their transport policy last week, proposing to scrap the $7.4 billion Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) project. Taxpayers will breathe a sigh of relief that the LGWM wasteful consultant-driven boondoggle is set for the scrapheap. Despite the name, every project to date has done anything but get the city moving.

    Despite the lack of asphalt laid, consultant expenses have already exceeded $130 million , while the overall costs have ballooned from $2.3 billion in 2018 to $7.4 billion – that’s $3,766 per Kiwi household, just for Wellington.

    It comes as no surprise that the only project completed by the bureaucracy to date is a $2.4 million pedestrian crossing – so much for getting the city moving. “

  23. *Ministry for Pacific Peoples spends $40,000 on a farewell knees-up for CEO.*
    Wow. Just WOW.

    “The Ministry for Pacific Peoples spent $39,262.22 on a lavish farewell party ‘event’ for its outgoing CEO, Leauanae Laulu Mac Leauanae. Mr Leauanae – who was moving down the road to become CEO of the Ministry of Culture and Heritage – was showered with $7,500 worth of gifts, which included carvings and fine mats, with the Ministry spending $3,000 on “discretionary items” including photography, flowers and ceremonial drummers.

    This comes not long after exposure that the same Ministry had spent $260,000 on catering last year despite only having 127 staff members (in 2017, they had just 35!).

    We say that it is stories like this that demonstrate how out of touch Wellington has become. While many New Zealanders are facing a cost of living crisis, those on the taxpayer dime are happy to continue to live it up.”

      Were they sacked for such lavish spending on the company credit card!
      What is it the island way?
      Not only this they are rorting the public service by having just about every islander their own personal public servant! I know the bennies should be giving taxpayers breakfast in bed for supporting them.

    A senior staff member told Chris Lynch Media on Thursday “our company is going to lay off people soon, it’s so frustrating.” Another upset staff member confirmed the news.

    A New Zealand Manufacturing and Construction Workers Union spokesman said at least 60 workers were being made redundant – including 45 on the shop-floor, and 15 administration staff.

    • Of the 5417 new cases, 2547 were reinfections.

      Since 99% of unvaccinated people either don’t bother to get tested because they know the test is bogus, or can’t be bothered reporting, these are mostly vaccinated people. So 47% recalls/reflux/reinfections/product failures. If Tesla had that many recalls, or Maccas had that many people throw up on a big Mac, they’d be out of business.

      So for those 5417, the penny has not dropped; the lights are on but nobody’s home. It’s the annual flu. Is and always was, just re-branded, and digitally enhanced, both in the media, and in the virus itself.

      The art of the con.

      My favorite episode of The Beverly Hillbillies was the one where Granny, the Clampett matriarch, boasted of having a sure-fire cure for the common cold. As I recall, when the banker Mr. Drysdale heard that Granny had discovered a cure, he became excited. He arranged for her to meet with leading California doctors who would evaluate her cure.

      After much buildup, Granny finally revealed that her cure involved a shot of her homemade moonshine, bed rest and lots of water. After two weeks of this regimen, Granny explained, your cold will be gone.

      “Works every time,” Jed explained to the disappointed doctors.

  26. The massive restructure at the central health agency has put paid to 424 positions, with the slim-down a third of the way through.

    Te Whatu Ora is cutting some jobs and creating others, but overall aiming to shrink middle manager numbers, in a restructure running a month or two late.

    “This does not mean 424 staff will be made redundant, as there is an expression of interest process for those affected to apply for new positions,” it said today.

    Staff at four out of its dozen groups had been told their fate so far.

    The latest, procurement and supply chain group, is shedding 102 positions.

    Later this week it is the turn of a smaller group covering operation director roles in hospital and specialist services.

    The restructure does not involve medical staff.

    Te Whatu Ora embarked later than expected on what it originally said was a process that could cut 1600 roles, after its initial consultations with staff proved trickier than expected.

    At least 31 people have died in suspicious or homicidal circumstances in New Zealand so far in 2023.

    On average there are 72 homicides in New Zealand each year. The rate of 1.3 homicides per 100,000 people is above the OECD median of 0.95 per 100,000.

    Take it from me. I’m an experienced power engineer, not a politician or an activist

    This is because a net zero, low cost electricity supply largely based on wind and solar power is unachievable. Wind power is becoming more and more expensive and offshore wind farm projects are being abandoned as uneconomic. Operation and maintenance costs are much higher than expected. Many manufacturers are losing money and some have very serious ongoing maintenance problems.

    Solar power is also in serious trouble with steadily increasing costs of raw materials driving the price up.

      • Making Nuclear energy the killer of life, has been the elites game for a very long time. Look at Gates and co wanting to shut out the sun for instance. Moderation is the key. Many of the globalists have retired or holiday in Florida because of the regenerative properties of what they call, life giving spring water. Key component, radium. The movie ‘Cocoon’ was roughly based on it. Same with highly volcanic areas, the radiation is a key element in growing large and bountiful crops of almost anything.
        The problem was the elites didn’t like pesky commoners benefitting from it so they made it out to be a life taker. In my own research a bloke named Savoye in 1923 invented a still that was able to produce gaseous emanations that when breathed in brought much relief to the sick and poorly. Unfortunately, a large company conned Savoye out of his invention and mothballed it. That company was Battelle. Which is one of the companies that has research labs in the Ukraine. And yes, they are heavily involved in Nuclear and Bio labs. The quack cure label was an intentional misnomer.

    There are fears for farmers’ well-being as a new survey reveals farmer confidence has hit an all-time low.

    Federated Farmers’ latest biannual survey has revealed 81 percent of respondents consider current economic conditions to be bad and just 29 percent say they’re currently making a profit.

    Of the 1000 farmers surveyed in July, 29 percent of respondents reported making a profit – a sharp decline from 72 percent last year.

    Furthermore, 22 percent expected to reduce production in the next 12 months and just 3 percent were optimistic that economic conditions would improve over the next 12 months.

    Forty-five percent expected to reduce spending in the next 12 months and 81 percent of respondents considered current economic conditions to be bad.

    This survey was done before Fonterra announced a steep $1 drop in their forecast milk price.

    “It’s going to be a $5 billion hit to the economy,” Dean said.

  33. BREACH OF CONTRACT? PAID TO DO IT, BUT FAILS TO MAKE HIS FRIEND’S WIFE PREGNANT
    JANUARY 24, 2012
    In Stuttgart, Germany, a court judge must decide on a case of honorable intentions in a situation where a man hired his neighbor to get his wife pregnant.

    It seems that Demetrius Soupolos, 29, and his former beauty queen wife, Traute, wanted a child badly, but Demetrius was told by a doctor that he was sterile.

    So, Soupolos, after calming his wife’s protests, hired his neighbor, Frank Maus, 34, to impregnate her. Since Maus was already married and the father of two children, plus looked very much like Soupolos to boot, the plan seemed good.

    Soupolos paid Maus $2,500 for the job and for three evenings a week for the next six months, Maus tried desperately, a total of 72 different times, to impregnate Traute.

    When his own wife objected, he explained, “I don’t like this any more than you. I’m simply doing it for the money. Try and understand.”

    When Traute failed to get pregnant after six months, however, Soupolos was not understanding and insisted that Maus have a medical examination, which he did.

    The doctor’s announcement that Maus was also sterile shocked everyone except his wife, who was forced to confess that Maus was not the real father of their two children.

    Now Soupolos is suing Maus for breach of contract in an effort to get his money back, but Maus refuses to give it up because he said he did not guarantee conception, but only that he would give an honest effort.

  35. Former National Party minister Alfred Ngaro set to launch new Christian party

    A former National Party Cabinet minister will tomorrow enter the election fray with a Christian party.

    Alfred Ngaro was a minister in the Bill English Government but says none of the political parties running for office this year fully embrace the Christian ethic.

    Ngaro admits it’s late to be launching a party but says the plan is to launch it like a rocket.

    To a suggestion that his party could drag votes away from National, which he represented for nine years in Parliament, Ngaro was philosophic.

    “I haven’t moved from my values. I just feel that the National Party has moved away from some of the values that I’ve upheld.
