  1. There’s a little man hanging over the edge of a 100 meter cliff with a rope that is fraying on the sharp edge of the cliff ,there’s an out of control on fire18 wheeler semi trailer heading for the exact position he’s hanging from ,there’s also 20 hungry great white sharks circling in the water below not to mention the dwarf Peters sitting in his game fishing launch firing shots at him with a sniper’s rifle and what does the brave little guy say when he’s asked ” no I’m not worried at all” FFS the 45 kg Ginga is set to be NZs greatest ever optimist, LMFAO.

      • Do they Sooty. If you had possibly listed to HDPA interview with the slippery Weasel that goes under the name of Kieren McNulty, Minister of Transport of a lying Labour Government, last week, she bought this up. He would not commit to introducing RUC for EV’s next year, if fact he basically said they had a few years work still to do on the mechanics of it. HDPA could not pin him down to the already committed date of RUC being introduced on 1 April 2024 for EV’s and told him that, this Government had, had all the time in the world to undertake what miniscule work would be required to introduce this.

  2. An example used in the IRD interpretation is that of “Rebecca”, a woman who owns an Auckland apartment with her husband and lives in it with two school-age daughters.

    Rebecca is forced to work away from Auckland for two years. She never buys a second home. Instead, she is put up in accommodation by her employer. Her husband and daughters continue to live in the apartment and Rebecca comes back twice a year to visit them.

    Despite never owning an additional home, and having her husband and daughters stay in the sole home she owns, Rebecca has to pay tax on her capital gains for the time she was away from her home.

    An IRD spokesman confirmed that this example had not changed, following consultation, as the feedback on it had been positive.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/politics/election-2023-thousands-of-families-and-cyclone-victims-subject-to-capital-gains-tax-on-family-home-under-new-rules-capital-gains-tax-by-stealth-national/Z7TRIXUS2NFAVC6XTAHLR6KGZE/

    It gets worse. read on.
    The slimy bastards.
    39% capital gains Tax on your family home. so if you go to another town for 12 months to work and then return you are up for 39%
    If you transfer oversea’s for a year and return you are up for 39%.

    That should stop a lot of people moving around. Stop a lot of people buying houses and leave a lot MT. Unrented.

    What the fuck are they thinking?

    • Just a few selected excerpts below. Bloody hell – how to kick people when they’re down.

      “In March 2021, the Government extended the period to 10 years, without including the change in Labour’s manifesto for the election six months prior. At the same time, the Government changed the definition of a “main [or family] home”, broadening the number of homeowners affected.

      The IRD’s interpretation says that a person’s capital gains are captured by the tax if they are away from the home for 12 consecutive months or more in the bright-line period – even if the home is the only residential property they own.

      Oliver cited an even tougher example – someone forced to evacuate their home for more than 12 months while it is repaired following the floods and cyclone this year would be hit by the tax unless they were able to claim one of the complex exemptions for building.

      “Say you’re from Piha and you have to evacuate [for more than 12 months] – well, tough,” he said.”

      • Yeah
        and who brought in the bright line tax; when there was existing tax law to cover it ?
        johnny keys, that is who.

        To cater for rising house prices because he was bringing in 120,000 low end immigrants a year with no compensating building .
        Econ 101. supply and demand intersection determine price.

        look to source.
        Sure the current IRD activity is bad, but who started it when there was sufficient law ?

    • More rules, regulations, yellow, red stickers, are the many ways of not only supposed unintended consequences, but is it all intended, to unsettle one so even more controls can be put in place
      The techno-bureau-crats intend to where they can, fully enforce them.

      In the mean time those techno-bureau-crats share the proceeds of their malfeasance, in the name of “kindly” redistribution for “equity’s sake” & others “well-being” in receiving even higher pay rises like through devious “paygrades” for their “Lets do this”.

  3. Did anyone else have the good fortune to hear Mikey eviscerate Chippy on ZB this morning? Absolutely destroyed.

    The only thing I would say to Mikey is there’s no need to be so dogmatic. Let’s give the Left nothing to bitch about. The last thing we need is Lefties braying about supposed rightwing media abuse as a form of deflection. They are desperate. To use one of their favourite memes around election time – ” like rats jumping off a sinking ship”

  4. hipkins can take solace in the fact that no madder how bad things get he won’t dip as low as Blinglish did in 2002 and get below 21%.
    Oh Deary me.

    And we will still have a socialist Chris at the helm.

    The Interislander’s Kaitaki ferry has been damaged after heavy seas last night, resulting in cancellations.

    The Kaitaki had been out of action two weeks ago after a mechanical issue led to a steering complication, forcing passengers to sleep on board. Interislander is also missing its Kaiarahi ferry, which is currently in Singapore undertaking scheduled maintenance.

    Meanwhile, both Interislander and Bluebridge are warning deteriorating weather conditions may also affect services today.

      Who would have thought globalist cunts could do more damage to the interislander than the cooks and stewards union of the 1970s.

      Clearly, now, the cooks and stewards union were more moderate communists

  6. A blonde is walking by a high-end shoe store in New Orleans. She is charmed by a beautiful pair of alligator shoes.
    She enters the store,gives her size and admires the shoes? “How much are these?”
    “$10,000” says the salesman.
    The blonde screams “WHAT? How? For $10,000 I could buy a fancy gun and shoot my own alligator!”
    The salesman laughs and apologizes but says “I’m sorry miss, but that is what this brand of shoe goes for”. She thanks him and leaves the store.
    Later that evening the salesman is driving home. Passing a bayou who does he see but the blonde? She’s wearing hip boots, is waist deep in the bayou and is aiming a rifle at a huge alligator that is surging right toward her!
    He slams on the brakes and runs to the rescue just as BANG! The blonde shoots it dead.
    He runs up just as she’s pulling the dead gator out of the bayou. He sees the shore already has several dead alligators, all flipped on their backs.
    The blonde gives a final heave,flips the new gator on its back and bursts into tears. She turns to the salesman and sobs “Would you believe it? THIS one’s not wearing any shoes either!”

    Chris Hipkins claims a lack of media coverage on Labour’s GST policy is partially to blame for his party crashing to its worst poll result in six years.

    Labour leader Hipkins spoke to AM on Tuesday, the day after the poll was released, where he pointed to a range of factors behind the result.

  8. What is the difference between science, philosophy and religion?

    Science is when you search for a black cat in a dark room.

    Philosophy is when you search for a black cat in a dark room even though the room contains no cat.

    Religion is when you search for a black cat in a dark room even though the room contains no cat – and then you suddenly exclaim, “I’ve found the cat!“

  10. I watched Newshub last night where there was an item where the Truck Driver from Huntly, a Maori King no less, wants to change the terminology, “Mana Motuhake”, the old Sid Jackson war cry away from it’s current meaning of self government to, ‘by Māori, for everyone’

    What was most noticeable was that not “everyone” was at this gig where the potificating Truck Driver was spouting forth.

    The thing missing was the sign of any European or white New Zealand face.

    “By Maori for everyone”, yeah right, hypocrite.

  11. So the grand phase 3 medical trial experiment will continue, bypassed by the Emergency Use Approval EUA & slid past MedSafeNZ through an anonymous non accountable sly medical body.
    But we are on target to support by all New Zealand Parliamentarian Parties, as a prerequisite for supporting the WHO Global Pandemic Treaty

    https://fackel.substack.com/p/jabbing-nz-the-results-are-in-and

    The old normal as New Zealand as NZ will ratified anything as UN.
    So it will by the signing up to the WHO Global Pandemic Treaty.

    Just as the signing up to the UN Global Migration Pact.
    Where any opposition, speaking against a migration or even a migrant, by any one, can be ruled against.

    Signing up to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) & ratified in the workings of the cultural He Puapua Plans.

    Net Zero Carbon, enshrined deeply into New Zealand legislation with the well supported NZ Zero Carbon Act.
    https://www.un.org/en/climatechange/net-zero-coalition

    And so further sovereignty signed over to the UN. 🙁

    So the Medical & Public Health cement in their gains of further functions, and Guy Hatchard sees more problems.

    I know some of the over seas Insurance actuaries have noted the trends of death, particularly in the under 65’s.
    When will New Zealand insurance companies note this, or if we look through their financial reports, can we figure it too, to see the changes in how they pay out?

    • https://hatchardreport.com/the-uninformed-election-that-has-become-a-gateway-to-chaos/
      These are just a few among hundreds of reports surfacing overseas and in scientific literature that are being completely ignored by the New Zealand media and elected politicians. In Australia and some other countries, as we have been reporting, the high rate of vaccine injury has just become a topic that can be openly discussed. See here for comments from medical professionals concerning some of these injuries. The silence in New Zealand is deafening.

      Just think what this means for our future. Those standing for election among the major parties are:

      Happy to tolerate manipulation of media content
      Unable to learn vital lessons from the failures of pandemic policy
      Mindlessly swallowing excuses offered by those to blame for deaths, including themselves
      Unable to press the emergency button as people die in unprecedented numbers (and it is not from Covid)
      Unable to grasp the risks of biotechnology experimentation

      The facile policies on offer from the major parties are mind numbing in their naivety. The National Party and ACT want to deregulate biotechnology because they say it will boost the economy and health of the nation. Do they even read the newspapers? Read this tale of woe in today’s UK Guardian headlined “Sales at vegan burger maker Beyond Meat fall by almost a third”.

    • A proper chipping, sanding, cleaning, rust busting has not, and nor will it been done in New Zealand on the Pandemic via UN directives.

      It has been declared by all NZ Parliamentarian Parties though at different levels, that it is up to the institutions, and even more so, the Corporations, Business’s to freely decide for ” ‘ealth & ‘afety”, “best practice” “health code” etc. to bring in & whatever necessary remedies for your safety & health.

      “mandatory” is gone or just sort of pruned back for the moment, so the rootstock is still ready to sprout?
      Some are noticing even though it is not supposed government policy.

      ….. is gearing up to produce and distribute an up-to-date guide to defeating any new mandates that appear this fall.

      Some interesting comments also noting that many of the rules, requirements etc., are still in place & are not revoked.

      It becomes Where America goes, we will go, one & all, possibly even before signing up with the UN Global Pandemic Treaty,

      20th August 2023 …. The small, private Atlanta college announced the mask mandate Sunday in a letter to faculty, staff and students, saying the requirement and other COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place for two weeks.
      The college cited “reports of positive cases among students in the Atlanta University Center” as the reason for the decision. …

  12. Not a nice guy

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/08/22/us-dentist-gets-life-and-25m-penalty-for-killing-wife-on-african-safari/
    A judge has handed down a sentence of life in prison and over NZ$25 million (US$15 million) in penalties to a wealthy dentist who killed his wife at the end of an African safari.

    He cashed in nearly NZ$8 million (US$5 million) in insurance policies for his wife, allege prosecutors who say he wanted to live a lavish retirement with his longtime girlfriend using the money.

    Prosecutors say Rudolph, who owned a Pittsburgh-area dental franchise, shot his wife of 34 years in the heart with a shotgun on her last morning in Zambia, and then put the gun in its soft case to make it look like she had accidentally shot herself while packing. The couple had been hunting game during their trip.

    They also claim the setting, about 129 kilometres from the nearest police station, was the perfect place to try to get away with the crime, where he rushed to have his wife cremated and intimidated officials investigating her death.

    Prosecutors allege Rudolph built his wealth on fraud. They say he shot off his thumb during a previous visit to Zambia to collect millions in disability insurance money; they also allege he cheated his dental patients, creating the need for root canals by not doing fillings or drilling holes in their teeth while they were asleep

  13. If New Zealand were to join Australia, how would it be done?
    a. Would the whole of NZ become a single new Australian state?
    b. Would the North and South Islands become two new separate Australian states?
    c. Would a combination of a) and b) above be merged with an existing Australian state? For example, all of New Zealand is merged with Tasmania? Or the South Island is merged with Tasmania and the North Island is merged with NSW?

    • Which is the richest state to merge with, and without the other part of NZ?
      Bearing in mind, lines can be drawn, just like the Australian drawn state lines.

      Could me & my property with a drawn circumference border line merge in? 🙂

      • Would this be an opportunity for a “Maori ethnostate” to be set up so that Maori could realize their dreams of running their own nation? If so, where would this new state be?

        What could possibly go wrong?

        • Maori “ethno-state” would be surprizingly large.
          Sure we consider the Urewera’s would be automatically in, likes parts of Northland, & Ngaruwahia & Huntly, for the acclaimed KIng.
          Then parts of Rotorua, if not all of it.
          Bear in mind the original handing over & now the return the whole of Tongariro Park to align with ethnos.

          Sea bed & foreshore, will bring in a feelz of being land-locked.
          Scott Base on Antarctica sounds like it could be in scientific contention too.

          Dual citizenship is an interesting point, as 501 rulings, may be a bone of contention, that may be started to pre-empt a merger.

          Who would really want to buy or even receive a bankrupt business, with attached costly cultural strings?
          Could you make lemonade out of those cultural lemons?

    • There is actually provision in the Australian Constitution for the inclusion of NZ:

      …….”The States shall mean such of the colonies of New South Wales, New Zealand, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia, and South Australia, including the northern territory of South Australia, as for the time being are parts of the Commonwealth, and such colonies or territories as may be admitted into or established by the Commonwealth as States; and each of such parts of the Commonwealth shall be called a State.”…….

      http://ausconstitution.peo.gov.au/#covering-clauses

      So only “a.” would be applicable & then only in the unlikely scenario of Australia being sufficiently altruistic to welcome a basket case to their fold.

    A farmer in his 60s was airlifted to hospital yesterday morning after his tractor rolled, leaving him trapped for hours with critical injuries.

    The crash occurred on a rural farm in the Mangakino area when the man’s tractor suddenly rolled while he was working.

    According to Greenlea Rescue Helicopter, the man sustained “multiple critical injuries” after he was left trapped beneath the weight of the machine for five hours.

  18. So the ED set up a triage area for patients arriving by ambulance? Does the journalist not understand the concept of a triage?

    noun
    the preliminary assessment of patients or casualties in order to determine the urgency of their need for treatment and the nature of treatment required: the clinic will be dedicated to the triage and treatment of patients with respiratory illnesses | [as modifier] : a triage nurse.

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/08/22/major-incident-led-to-delays-transferring-patients-to-waikato-hospital/
    St John declared a ‘major incident’ on Monday night caused by delays in transferring patients to Waikato Hospital.

    It said it prioritised patients in most urgent need to get to the emergency department while ensuring those waiting in ambulances received appropriate care and observation.

    Te Whatu Ora Waikato said it was at 103% occupancy on Monday with 143 patients in its ED at 6pm, one of the busiest periods it has experienced.

    “This meant that ambulances could urgently offload any transported patients into the ED if they had two or more priority community response calls in the central Hamilton area however, this capability was not required. Normal services were maintained throughout,” Sutherland said.
