  1. Tim Van Demolen says ” stand up mate” to some faggot from the labour party named Halbert ,a mincing left hand on the hip queer from the north shore and what does the National leader do ? sacks him, that’s what the bald headed fucking piece of shit does.
    I was going to hold my nose and vote for National but they can go and get fucked, what a pathetic weak little soy boy Luxon is but oh well he’s fluent in Te Reo.
    What drugs were the people of the north shore taking to vote in a man Whose only redeeming feature is that he is a shirtlifter, I’ve never seen him of heard of him yet there he is on a couple of hundred thousand a year plus expenses and he appears to be suffering P rash like 90% of the morons that voted for him.
    And as I’ve said before no matter who wins in October my rant this morning would probably get me arrested if I was to post it in 12 months time, bet you house on it .

    • A long way to write “woke luxon dosent have a spine”…. crazy he punishes one of his few mps that appears to have a spine tho.

      • You do have to wonder what luxon is really on, or about. He wants a team of soy boys and girls to follow on with him with all the soy boy and Maori shit. Not one person is worthy of a vote in this so called government. I mean look at the display this week with the farewell, he was dressed in traditional outfit, it is all a joke to them they are all under the power of the WEF and we are doomed to a life under the thumb of who ever wins. It won’t be any different no matter which party you vote for they are all a pack of WEF tradeoffs.
        Have a great day while you can, life after October will turn really nasty, if you don’t speak Maori or are a trans just watch.
        And I will not be able to say this after October I bet.

        • Revvy its a fight for a poisoned chalice.

          I dont believe nats have the balls to make the unpopular and drastic changes needed to “get back on track”… slash bloated buereacracy, say no to the bros, tough love for welfare state, real law and order, tip education on its head and start over, raise retirement age.
          Yeah nah slight tinkering at best and a return to selling houses to each other while flooding the country with low quality 3rd world imigrants.

        • A telling comment. Too many people voting for the RIGHT side of politics forget National/ ACT will be receiving a hospital pass should they win. I personally believe some issues in our country have gone past the point of no return and only measures outside of our democratic processes will be able to right them.

        • No Rev, he’s not shitting himself because he has no idea of how to fix the Ardern clown show destruction. He isn’t interested in fixing the destruction because he supports it and is planning to continue it if elected. Absolutely nothing would improve if this spineless piece of shit were to become PM in October. Nothing.

      • I believe he wants to be middle of the road so that a WEF endorsed National-Labour Coalition will take place, as per what ED said a few days ago. So he is punishing anyone that will upset that.

        And now we have Todd hinting at National-Labour co-operation.

        I wouldn’t be surprised if they form a coalition, and hug each other on nationwide TV.

      • On this I agree with you. Even Barely Sober said the incident was trivial compared to other stuff he has seen. Both Luxon and Seymour have been censuring MPs for behaviour, that in my opinion, should be applauded.

    • How can Luxon accept a stacked Labour & Greens Privileges Committee who find a National MP guilty of “Aggressive Behaviour” because he makes a comment to a fellow MP to “Stand up man”.

      If that is the level that one gets found guilty of “Aggressive Behaviour”, then god help us.

      There is not one example I can think of, that Nude Nut has stood up for his National MP’s. He never seems to have their back, never seems to support any MP who is in trouble, never seems to go into bat for them. He is just another silver tongued Weasel who is looking after his own brand and not the wider brand, or his staff, Not a man you could personally trust or rely on.

        Some of us wiser heads have been telling you this for quite some time.
        Seymour did the same to his list people.

        • No, Viking, sorry Old Spoon, my opinion of Luxon and Seymour has not changed since both of them came onto the political scene. They both suffer from small mans syndrome and neither impresses me and I have expressed this for a very long time. So you are not telling me anything new.

          • Could be a case of don’t scare the horses and our time will come. I’m no fan of Luxon but there is little point in getting into a scrap you can’t win and giving Labour ammunition during the last sitting week of parliament. They are desperate and getting nastier by the day.

              • Jenna Lynch is currently trying to blame Luxon for everything that’s gone wrong since the great depression so now is not the time, I personally think Tim did nothing wrong and giving that faggot Halbert a good kicking would be doing us all a favour, let’s face it he makes Ricardo look tough. Thinking about what Jenna Lynch might be doing for a living after October may help ease your mind. At least Tova could pour a pint, I don’t think Jenna is that bright.

                • T and Jenna Lynch’s attitude towards Luxon seems all the more strange as her husband, Andrew Ketels, is David Seymour’s Chief of Staff and as Luxon and Seymour and “the Right” are likely to be top dogs from the evening of 14th October, some courtesy may have been shown, but I guess in her case, arrogance overrides most things.

        This appeared on luxflakes FB page. I doubt he will either see it or deign to answer

        ‘Dear Mr Luxon: A question: Why do you consistently NOT support your own MP’s but get rid of or censure any of those who show a bit of spirit / spine, MP’s such as Tim van de Molen? Are you afraid of them because they dare to have have an opinion that is not yours? One wonders…’

      • I have just written to my National MP explaining that because of Luxon’s stupid wokeness I will not be voting for him this time but giving both my votes to ACT. I have copied him Revtech’s comment explaining that it pretty well sums up how I feel too.

      • Saggy@0802

        Before stating that ‘I’m now going to vote ACT.’ you might care to both look at the top image o this thread AND consider seeless’s perspective, statements and opinions on such things as vaccination and protests.

        The fact that ‘HIS’ party colours are ‘yellow’ and that he will happily acquiesce if it’s to HIS advantage might also be worthwhile considering…

        • K, I had two shots of the vax, and consequently my ticker played up (seems fine now). And I disagree with how Seymour handled this issue. But there’s a lot more at stake here.

          Anyway, I was always going to vote ACT 😎

          • ^ sees the bigger picture.

            Seymour fucked me right off through covid and i wrote several emails of varying anger and frustration. To be fair they all got replied to even if it was a few weeks later, nats you dont hear zip if you criticise them.

            Anyways we are faced with limited choices on who to vote for to at least attempt to sort this mess, nats are clearly ruling themselves out through wokeness and teal team.
            REALISTIC choices are winnie or seymour, feelz parties aint gunna cut it this election.

            Anyways a dead rat i shall swallow, as saggy points out theres far more to worry about then dumbarse covid butthurt.

            • I never even got a reply from Seymour though I know he read my many e mails or at least some of them because he told a friend of mine that I am an anti vax nutter. I have grave concerns about Seymour’s leadership but for now ACT is the best of a mainly bad lot. I will be voting ACT mostly because of Nicole McKee and what she is trying to do for firearms owners all quarter million of us.

            • The covid policies, that all parties in Parliament went along with, are all about imposing totalitarian rule. Same goes for “climate change”. There is nothing more important than resisting totalitarian rule.

              Voting for ACT = voting for totalitarian rule. Supporting evidence: 2 ACT candidates now off the list for criticizing covid tyranny.

              • The recent dumping by Seeless of the Act candidate who wrote clever ditties about Ardern was senseless. Why can’t an opposition MP make fun of the tyrannical, “one source of truth” DL?

                I imagine a large percentage of ACT voters would have been cheering on his witty songs and freedom of speech. It’s a sorry state when a sense of humour causes political death. Call yourself a libertarian, not even close! Shame on you Seeless. 🙄🤬

        • It’s over next week. Then the real battle starts, the msm are showing their true colours already. Labour clearly have nothing to offer and their record speaks for itself. It will be interesting to see how low they will stoop, if the Halbert incident is anything to go by it’s going to be a rough ride. Newshub are in deep financial shit and desperately want government money, imagine what stuffs books look like. As they say, desperation is a stinky cologne.

  2. Jesus was walking around Heaven one day. In a small, secluded garden He saw an old man, crying. Alarmed, Jesus ran up to him and said, “Hey, now, what’s all this? This is paradise. There should be no tears or sorrow.”

    The old man wiped away his tears and said, “Oh, I know. I’m sorry. But… well, many years ago, a son came to me through… well, let’s say ‘mysterious circumstances’. After many trials he went through a miraculous transformation, and a book was written about him that became known the world over. I thought I would find him here, but I haven’t. I’m afraid I’ll never see him again.”

    Wide-eyed, Jesus looked at the man and said, “Wait a minute… You weren’t, by any chance… a carpenter, were you?”

    The man looked up in surprise. “Why, yes. Yes, I was!”

    Jesus burst into tears of joy and held out His arms saying, “Father!”

    The man cocked his head doubtfully and said, “Pinocchio???”

    Unfortunately, it’s highly unlikely ‘cos the shop keeper appears to be a Muslim and the ‘rocketeers’ will have been Hindus, and NEVER the twain shall meet, to the extent that that ‘India’ has established itself, one wonders when the ‘religious riots’ will begin. They are unfortunately inevitable, so it won’t be too long….

  4. Sorry if someone has posted on this before. We all know TV news is rotten. But TV1 one has been forced to be more transparent after paid tv content across its platform for the government has come to light. This from a paywalled article: Keep the good work up, Sean.

    ”’The $300,000 package included support for:

    A one-hour climate special, screened on primetime television;
    Online content hosted on 1news.co.nz and tvnz.co.nz including a dedicated webpage;
    Five 1news.co.nz articles – stories on the 1 News website;
    Five 1 News social media posts;
    A Breakfast integration: Five interviews across a week on Breakfast with “a range of EECA and climate/energy experts”;
    A Seven Sharp interview with an EECA ambassador;
    A joint press release
    Journalists and broadcasters such as Chris Lynch and Sean Plunket then picked up the baton.”’

    What about all the other media outlets in print and screens?
    Who do you trust now?
    If labour have bribed one, why not the rest of them?
    You would have to be a fool to think it was only one!
    The political parties need an investigation into this after labor loses the election!
    Who thinks that labor will not sanitise all their offices?

      Unfortunately your suggestion that ‘The political parties need an investigation into this after labor loses the election’! will never, ever, happen, for the simple reason that ALL the ‘Main’ leaders are drinking from the same WEF/NWO cup and none have the intestinal fortitude or courage of their personal convictions to break ranks with the others.

      We saw that well-demonstrated with the anti-vaxx protests and nothing has in any way changed since then.

      The term ‘Thick as thieves’ is an apt one in this situation.

  6. This is turning out to be the SOP for this Government. Adding in stuff to a Bill at the last moment.

    This is National Party press release but it does give a good summary

    ” Hundreds Of Last Minute Changes To Three Waters
    Wednesday, 23 August 2023, 9:48 am
    Press Release: New Zealand National Party
    Labour introduced almost 300 pages of amendments to its unworkable Three Waters bill just hours before it was to be debated last night and only a week before the 53rd Parliament ends, National’s Local Government spokesperson Simon Watts says.

    “In another desperate move by the Labour Government, it yesterday tabled a 286-page amendment to the Water Services Legislation Bill.

    “The original bill alone is just over 300 pages, and these additional last minute changes show just how unworkable Labour’s Three Waters has become.

    “There are significant changes such as the Chatham Islands being included again after previously being excluded, and moving the date the bill comes into law from 2024 to immediately after it’s passed – possibly as soon as this week.

    “Trying to rush through such a large bill and not allowing Parliament to do its democratic duty to give it proper scrutiny will only end up coming back on New Zealanders and their water.

    “Labour’s Three Waters has been a disaster from the start, and it has now written its last sorry chapter. Under a National government this undemocratic bill will be gone in the first 100 days.

    “Unlike Labour’s broken reforms, National has a plan so Kiwis don’t have to worry about sewage on their streets, un-swimmable beaches, or having to boil their drinking water.

    “National’s Local Water Done Well will return assets to councils, and set up strict rules for water quality and financial stability so Kiwis can be confident in their water services while keeping them in local hands where they belong.”

    • Sounds good but I don’t trust them.

  7. Another great article from Barry Brill about climate change. ALL MPs should be forced to read it. Some of them like Shaw and Luxon may have to read it 2-3 times to fully comprehend it.

    https://breakingviewsnz.blogspot.com/2023/08/barry-brill-climate-crisis-lets-ask.html#more

    “The amicus curiae brief of Dr. Richard Lindzen, Dr. William Happer and Dr. Steven Koonin was prepared in response to a request by a US Judge for a tutorial on climate change and climate science. Their brief is a highly authoritative summary of what is known and unknown in climate science as the consequence of nearly 30 years of focussed research.

    The authors offer four conclusions from their analysis of AR5:

    1. The climate is always changing; changes like those of the past half-century are common in the geologic record, driven by powerful natural phenomena

    2. Human influences on the climate are a small (1%) perturbation to natural energy flows

    3. It is not possible to tell how much of the modest recent warming can be ascribed to human influences

    4. There have been no detrimental changes observed in the most salient climate variables, and today’s projections of future changes are highly uncertain “

    Hes trying to buy the farm he sharemilks on but waiting to make sure labour get the arse card before he buys it, for some reason he thinks nats are going to save farmers and ditch all the climate crap and costly regulations… yeah i laughed too and explained luxon and many other nats are greenies at heart and still want all the climate stuff except delay it a couple years at most. “No no theyre only saying that so they dont lose the election, wait until once theyre in and itll be gone by lunchtime”…. hes one very optimistic and stupid swiss dude, hes betting the farm on it and i rekon hes gunna regret it big time.

  10. Announcing Sandra Campbell as DemocracyNZ Candidate for Kaikoura
    I
    Matt King, DemocracyNZ matt.king@democracynz.org
    1:33 PM (0 minutes ago)

    We are thrilled to announce Sandra Campbell as our DemocracyNZ Candidate for Kaikoura!

    Sandra comes with a strong business background. She has run a niche international aviation business, Campbell Aero Classics, with her husband since 2000, supplying bespoke flying helmets to the aviation industry worldwide.

    Sandra is a mum to two adult sons and a proud grandmother to her grandson. She understands the demands and responsibilities of single parenting and brings a wealth of real-life experience with her.

    Sandra very quickly became increasingly appalled and incredulous at what she was witnessing with the mandates and other forms of government overreach – here in New Zealand, but also around the world. The complete lack of real opposition or challenge by any current standing MP to the Government narrative in New Zealand, is what Sandra found most concerning. So many people’s lives were being affected, yet no-one was listening, and we had a silent media.

    The complete disregard for New Zealanders’ rights and freedoms was a bridge too far. This triggered in Sandra something that is in fact what connects us all to each other – respect, compassion, tolerance, integrity, and truth. Standing back and staying quiet wasn’t an option anymore.

    With the arrival of DemocracyNZ in early 2022, came relief that finally there was someone speaking the truth but also someone with integrity. The robust policies of DemocracyNZ are vital in restoring trust, integrity, common-sense, and regaining the New Zealand way – where we punched above our weight and stood firmly on values and principles that brought us together and made us proud to be Kiwis.

    We now have a failing education system as our standards of academic excellence keep falling. Our health system is struggling, the justice system is not working. Our farmers are under threat, our livelihoods are under threat. With more and more restrictions on our once enjoyed freedoms, we must now urgently speak up.

    Party Leader, Matt King is thrilled to welcome Sandra to the team. “To have someone of Sandra’s calibre, intellect and experience on our team, is fantastic. Our candidates are representative of everyday New Zealanders – they come from all walks of life, from around the country. The thing that brings us together, is our love for our country – and our determination to fight for our country. Sandra flies in Spitfires – that’s quite symbolic given everyone who flew these planes was on a mission to fight for their country’s freedom and sovereignty.”

    “DemocracyNZ offers well-founded policies and solutions to bring about change in New Zealand communities, so that we can restore our freedom of speech and our freedom of choice. This is the most important election that we have ever faced. We must now all be brave and step out of our comfort zone – and contribute to creating a country of freedom, equality and true democracy”, says Sandra.

    You can read about all our candidates here: Our People – Diverse Range of Kiwis – DemocracyNZ https://democracynz.org/ourpeople/

  12. While my heart is broken at the thought of Shipley handing over some of her fortune to those who lost because of her incompetence while chairing Mainzeal I sought out good news & cheer at the Stuff website. Alas, more doom & gloom. It seems that a poor Wellington couple with a mere six rental properties are facing penury:

    …….”The biggest challenges we have being landlords, are, firstly, this new tax is making us rethink our retirement strategy and sell down. I know other landlords are thinking the same thing, which is very scary news for the future supply of rental properties.”…….

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/homed/132816068/a-landlords-dilemma-if-rent-does-not-go-up-we-will-sell-up

    The implications are grim. Their tenants will be thrown onto the street & the houses will be left empty to rot until they’re finally pulled down & the land they sit on will revert to scrub then native bush.

    OR they will be sold, maybe even to present tenants. They could be owned by occupiers who will finally be able to nest knowing that as long as they pay the mortgage & outgoings they have a roof over their heads for life.

    Could go either way. ////////

  13. Jumping Jeepers Creepers, folks. This is terrible. A poor vegan girl accidently ate meat after 10 years on a vegan diet. She burst into tears ( lack of omega 3s) and posted a video explaining how this shit went down. Being a black girl it was interesting to note her somewhat pale skin ( lack of heme iron). Fuck, I sometimes go without meat for a few days and don’t get the urge to tell the world of my present meat-free status.

    This fake meat these people eat costs $15 for six plant based burger patties. The Ingredient list shows nutri yeast as major component. That crap is dirt cheap at the health food store. I wish these people would just piss off.

  15. Just saying.

    According to medical experts, healthy men can experience as many as three to five erections per night, lasting up to 20 or 30 minutes at a time, while research has found that regularly waking up with “morning wood” is also a sign of good circulation and a well-functioning heart.

    It is normal to have fewer erections as you age, particularly beyond 50, but last year, a study of 1800 middle-aged and older men in Belgium published in the journal Age and Ageing found that those who regularly woke up erect were 22 per cent less likely to have a heart attack or stroke in the following three to five years.

    The penis as a barometer of heart health

    While urologists most commonly use this test as a way of assessing cases of erectile dysfunction, measuring the length and frequency of erections can also be a vital indicator of heart health.

    “The penis is an excellent barometer of your physical health,” says Tobias Köhler, Professor of Urology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. “And if it’s not working, it could be a sign of impending doom.”

    So AirNZ made a profit, but noticeably there is absolutely NO indication anywhere that they are prepared to reimburse those who were not, and have not, been able to get refunds for flights that the airline cancelled during the pandemics.

    With the profit now declared, I would have thought that such people would have been first in the queue for reimbursement, but evidently, to the AirNZ accountants and senior management, they are mere aberrations and figments of ‘someone’s’ imagination; ‘voices from the past’ if you will, who can be safely discounted and ignored..

    In commerce. ‘honesty’ tends to be the first casualty…

  19. I saw an article on $tuffed yesterday about the
    Mowree party being upset that a few of their political
    hoardings have been vandalised.

    One particular act of ‘vandalism’ I thought, was absolutely brilliant.

    A noble and heroic citizen, when out of his way to drive through
    a fence in his car, to flatten the hoarding featuring the scribble faced
    Mowree party co- leader Debbie Ngarewa Packer.
    Now, THAT is someone who should be Prime Minister.

    • no kudos, its about beating up your opposition.
      TV has had its go at the Herald and so it goes.
      Just as the others all have a go over the waka jumping tarts that call themselves journo’s.

      Nothing is ever what it seems.
      somewhere among that Tova or duncan or one of them has spilled the beans.

    • Bert has one, i just use an older dji mavic pro.
      Id never heard of aeroo until bert mentioned it a couple of weeks ago, seems like a solid wee entry level fishing drone, looks like theyre purpose built with everything you need to fish straight out the box where as the dji is bit more spendy then youve got to either buy an aftermarket dropper or maori styles a bent wire held on with cable ties.
      Dji has bit more grunt and range for normal droning/photography but also costs alot more.

      • Thanks. At $760 complete with three batteries it seemed a better bet for a rank beginner than a $3000 Mavic or similar. Downside is the low payload but it should drop two or three baits out past the breakers.

        I reckon I’ll go ahead & order one.

        • Yeah dji are good but spendy, i got mine 2nd hand a few years ago for 1200 with 3 batteries, one crapped out and ive since bought another 3 2nd hand ones at 100-160bux a pop plus a good case and few spares it probs owes me 2k. Its original mavic pro so new phones wont run the thing now either but luckily i got an old samsung thats dedicated to the drone now.

          I bought my drone to um err find “herbs” i knew were growing in a big gorse patch down the river, then the thing sat in the cupboard for 2yrs until a mate used his fishing, now i try get out at least once a week. Have a play with them on dry land first and get used to it and see what sort of wind etc it can fly in. On the yr weather app i dont fly in winds over 5-6m/s as the drone alarms start squawking and it drains the battery real quick.
          Fly it into headwind and see what it does, be a bugger to fly out over water and not get back in!

        • Nasska……that’s the package I got……it’s pretty small as in doesn’t carry much weight….2 hooks with 3 ounce sinker….pretty tough…I’ve crashed it in the trees a couple of times……camera is great ….drop system seems good.
          I liked it because you get everything to start with in a small carry bag.
          Please note …..only flown in paddock so untested at sea.I’m confident it will be good.Battery takes ages to charge…maybe 3 drops per battery depending weather/weight etc
          Aussie made so good for parts
          Perfect starter package
          Good luck

  20. Some employers including education and Health are in fro a financial clean out. and rightly so.

    A respected worker who was dismissed from a company with a mandatory Covid-19 vaccination policy, even though he reluctantly got his first jab, has been awarded $33,000 after claiming a personal grievance.

    Quality control officer Jonathan Collier, who was also a health and safety representative and head fire warden, was dismissed from the Rotorua chemical manufacturer Damar Industries in January 2022.

    He complained to the Employment Relations Authority (ERA) saying he had been disadvantaged when the company imposed a mandatory vaccination policy, and that he had been unjustifiably dismissed.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/damar-industries-to-pay-33k-after-firing-partly-vaccinated-rotorua-worker-during-covid/NFC4QLMESZEGHC5J5WEKAUMTLU/?fbclid=IwAR1sJ9I37lylQw-BIYKELYEjSW8BmltmYsIqtILlKjGjgTTm3m3FYOBXdMc

    The ERA found that Damar’s decision to implement a mandatory vaccination policy was to Collier’s disadvantage.

    “The decision introduced into his employment an ultimatum that had not existed before – ‘no jab, no job’ – as it has been described,” Dumbleton said.

    “This had not been a condition of employment previously and the introduction of it substantially weakened the employment relationship and threatened its continuation.”

    yeah.
    What this says is that your contract rules. And that is how it should be.
    Its the second one I have read lately.
    I know of some more to come in education. Some very hurt people there and in their case its the BOT in the gun.
    Too many don’t understand that a contract is just that, signed or not signed if its agreed

    We had an agreement, signed by our Gov Generals, as a representative of the people and the Queen, that says they have a contract with the citizens which is known as the Bill of Rights.
    Our MP’s made that so and once it was in place they would govern , using that BOP or contract, respecting the people and those rights.
    120 of them broke that contract.
    Don’t forget that.
    It includes the yellow peril Seymour.

  21. One of my wife’s friends is public servant. He has just said they have had to go through a 2 day course on the Treaty. Among his group were quite a few Maori collleagues. At the end of the course there was quite a lot of anger and few tears as they realised they have altered the Treaty from what they all learnt at school.
    So on the one hand they are going full on with altered history and propaganda but on the other, Maori people, in particulare are seeing the BS. The latter gives you some hope.
