  1. I know I am attacking the man and not the ball, but I guess it is just me, a negative grumpy thin lipped curmudgeon who probably should just shut his gob and get out more often, but I just find Nicola Willis, the most smarmy, know it all, supercilious, smug lady who has mastered the ability to look down on her fellow man, speak to them with her one liners, which are forced and lack either humour or the ability to cut to the quick. The only redeeming factor with this smug, full of herself lady is that she dresses smartly and then that, I guess, is a matter of opinion.

    Apart from that, I don’t like her.

  2. Good morning everyone of all you stand up for freedom people. Think the fog is in Hamilton can hardly see out the window for the fog!!!!!! Hope we have not had our summer already…..
    I have no comment on the nats tax policy other than to say.. its as useless as they are.
    Have a good day out there in the once wonderful New Zealand, now you take your chances with the rest of them, could have a ram raid stabbing or what ever the fuck they want to do to you. Be careful and try to have a good day.

  3. Brian Tamaki reckons he is going to run a campaign of disruption heading into the election. I think he should hold up traffic in Wellington and concrete his face to the road. That should do the trick.

      • Strangely, he has never really bothered me. When it comes to religious nutters of most persuasions I’m a live and let live sort of bloke and he is clearly bright enough to make a good earn out of the people who can least afford him. Everybody is entitled to their view but I don’t think disrupting others is the answer, if it was the Greens and bring back rail fruit cakes would be running the country. On top of that he seems to think his party will get 16 % in the election. Clearly the man is totally delusional and has read too many bible’s too early in the morning.

        • I was no fan of the Tamaki family, but once the protests started and his lot got involved I saw a different side of him. Thought he was a strange God botherer but he did have good resources for protests. And at least he had a high profile for the press, no matter that they thought he was a conspiracy theorist. Press and parliamentarians are all stupid as stupid does.

    • I’m not a Christian, but I like Brian Tamaki. He galvanised resistance to the Ardern cabal early on and up until the parliamentary protest the Freedom & Rights Coalition was virtually the only voice of dissent. Well, certainly the most vocal one anyway. I was surprised that he packed it up at Parliament after the first or second day and I’ve often wondered what was behind that decision.

      I like the way Brian’s followers disrupted the Hipkins walkabout, and then heckled Nude Nut a couple of days later. This shows real commitment and passion and we need more of this – not violence, but certainly a vocal and spirited resistance to the lies and propaganda is much needed i we are to effect any change.

      Go Brian. Sock it to ’em! 👍✔️😄

    The Julie Anne Genter Gravy Train

    August 14, 2023

    The Labour Party Friends & Family Gravy Train Is A Popular Pass Time
    “The NZTU can reveal that in the last year the Government has paid $356,466.61 to the consultancy firm of Peter Nunns – the partner of Associate Transport Julie Anne Genter, without a single open tender process.

    The firm is MRCagney – for which Mr Nunns is principal economist.”

    We don’t recall any other government in NZ’s history allowing so much cash to be thrown around friends and family.

    What makes it worse is this Labour government campaigned on being the most transparent government ever.

    First it was Mahuta and Ormsby, then Tamihere, now Genter – and plenty more that we will be exposing, as the MSM once again either glosses over these issues, or completely ignores them.

    Nepotism and corruption at its finest.

      Then there is JT, FIL of the scribble faced cowboy… Where’s our money?!

      We need a forensic audit to weed out all the gravy train rorts. “The most transparent government ever” was Ardern double speak for just the opposite.

      • Funny how nothing changes, the end game for socialism / communism is exactly the same as it was in the Soviet era. The elite and their family and friends get everything, the prols get nothing. Animal farm wasn’t just a novel it was a warning for the future and as we know those that don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it – just ask Cindy, Robbo, Chippy or any of the Greens or Maori party.

          • H, I spent a lot of time in the Soviet Union at the end of the USSR and during Perestroika. One of my regular customers and a company whom I Chartered a lot of ships from, was the largest Shipowner at that time in the World, the Black Sea Shipping Company.

            When Perestroika was coming to an end, many of the Black Sea Shipping Line Managers were transferring fleets of vessels, say 4-10x 25,000 – 50,000 DWT vessels from Russian Registry and ownership into Monrovian, Vanuatu or Panamanian Registry and into offshore ownership, all in their own names or companies they had set up and became overnight multi millionaires. As Black Sea Shipping owned over 2,000 vessels, these transfers of ownership were hardly missed, but the tricky Russian Bank accounts did not miss getting filled with hard currency.

            Socialism was great, these Geezers all saw an opportunity that theft as a Socialist and Capitalism bought and pursued it with vigor.

        • Brian, Willie Jackson’s sister, my next door neighbour takes it in her Bank Account, big time from the Maori Trust she runs, and in the Bank Account from the poor Medical Services in addition to the very shabby Retirement Home she ran until recently. When the main resident, her and Willie’s Mother, Dame Temuranga Batley-Jackson passed away, Willie’s sister closed the Rest Home down with a few weeks, tipping all the remaining residents out.

          The Casino in Hamilton does very well out of Willies sister so she is able to transfer some of her wealth to Tainui. Everyone goes away happy.

  5. Over 1,600 Scientists Sign ‘No Climate Emergency’ Declaration

    International scientists have jointly signed a declaration dismissing the existence of a climate crisis and insisting that carbon dioxide is beneficial to Earth, contrary to the popular alarmist narrative.

    “There is no climate emergency,” the Global Climate Intelligence Group (CLINTEL) said in its World Climate Declaration (pdf), made public in August. “Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific. Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures.”

    A total of 1,609 scientists and professionals from around the world have signed the declaration, including 321 from the United States.

  6. PETER WILLIAMS: Why National? Why?
    Nats to continue the fiscal lolly scramble

    Somebody suggested to me yesterday that the 2023 version of the National Party is similar to the Helen Clark Labour Party of 20 years ago. That is just to the left of centre.

    When you look at a few policies, that comment isn’t far off the mark. They’re going to retain the 39 cent top tax rate and they’re maintaining the Zero Carbon Act, when the ETS could do the same job at a fraction of the price.

    Then in the last few days we’ve had two quite staggering announcements that would not have been made by a National Party thirty years ago.

    They’re going to maintain the winter heating payment for all people aged 65 and over, even if a decent chunk of them are multi-millionaires, and then at the other end of the scale they’re going to carry on with this busted policy of the fees-free first year at university.

    What is it with these people? The term poll driven fruit cakes comes to mind.

    The country cannot afford either policy and the fees-free idea is a shambles. It hasn’t brought any more students into university and has been shown to be of more assistance to children of the wealthy than kids from lower income families.

    As for the winter heating payment, why is it not means tested?

    Don’t give me the stock answer of that would be too hard to administer. There are mechanisms that already exist like the community services medical card to identify pensioners of limited means. Or make it an opt-in scheme for those under a certain income or asset base rather than just a universal money giveaway.

    I think both initiatives are wasteful and non-targeted spending, something a responsible government would not do.

    Any new government led by the Nats is looking like Santa Claus already.

  7. Three big problems and four quick wins for the next government

    “God’s own country” was how our longest-serving Prime Minister, Richard “King Dick” Seddon described New Zealand. The moniker he popularised for his country also proved enduring – even if by the late 20th century, it had become abbreviated to Godzone.

    Yet, as the 2023 general election approaches, New Zealand feels less blessed than it has in the past.

    Despite our rich cultural heritage, beautiful geography and youthful multicultural population, “teetering on the brink” sometimes seem a more apt description than “heavenly”.

    Persistent inflation has triggered a cost-of-living crisis. Despite the ballooning size of our core bureaucracy, public service outcomes continue to deteriorate.

    Four quick wins

    Solving crises in education, health and housing will take time. But, in the meantime, four reforms offer immediate “wins”.

    The new government must reintroduce fiscal discipline for spending decisions. The focus should not just be on new spending. A comprehensive review of existing spending is also required.

    • Viking@0753

      To see such an article in the labour bought and paid-for Herald is surprising, so either ‘disenchantment’ is setting in, their government subsidy is about to disappear and the BoD no longer care, the ‘Editorial staff’ have at long last found their missing backbone, or one of their National Party-affiliated investors has put the ‘hard word’ onto those who matter…

      Can’t see this newfound ‘truthfulness’ lasting long – or, because the left have long memories and are always vengeful, that they will be treated favourably should labour get back in.

  8. The god of thunder decides to leave Asgard and visit Midgard for some quality ale and some how’s your father with a pretty wench. He finds himself in a nightclub and catches the eye of a beautiful woman with an attractive lisp who takes him home for a torrid night of passsion. The next morning he leaves before she wakes and returns to Asgard. Odin asks him how the visit went and asks what the wench’s name was, only for the god of thunder to confess he never found out. Odin tells him to go back and apologise, so he retraces his steps and knocks on her door. She opens it, clearly in some discomfort.

    “I’m Thor,” he announces.

    “Your Thor?” she exclaims, “I can barely walk!”

  9. An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in his paintings on display at that time.

    “I have good news and bad news,” the owner replied. “The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all 15 of your paintings.”

    “That’s wonderful,” the artist exclaimed. “What’s the bad news?”

    “The guy was your doctor.”

  10. I would think that liebour would be praising liebour lite today as a great pupil that follows their socialist/WEF ways.

    Liebour lite want to :-
    -increase WFF
    -Do nothing for productividy
    -Retain the 39% personal tax bracket
    -retain 39% Trust tax
    -encourage selectrix cars and glorified golf carts.
    -announce an announcement that they may , just may, consider, you know, think about indexing tax brackets, maybe, a little bit, not too much
    the teal trifecta of luxflakes, Nicky Willy, and get boosted Bish encourage more and costly climate bullshit.

    VOTE liebour lite

  11. I’m no longer much of a fan of Seymour or ACT but in this instance he tells it like it is. In response to Tania Tapsell’s plea for more frontline police to sort out assaults in Rotorua he said:

    ……“I’m concerned, for example, that police are doing a lot of callouts to people on home detention. If there’s a way, we can make sure police are using more of their time that reduces harm, and less of their time policing people who probably should have been in jail anyway, that’s an example of how we’d take a different approach.”………

      “”It’s been 22 days since a massive fire destroyed the town of Lahaina on Maui… 2,000 homes incinerated, hundreds of people killed and all in an area largely owned and lived in by long time native islanders. What is really going on here? Why are drones being blocked, residents arrested when they try to return home? Why are 2,000 kids missing?”

    • One of the original drugs against alcohol.
      “Disulfiram (Antabuse®)” that came out in the 1950’s
      “approved by the FDA to treat alcohol dependence*. If you drink alcohol, this medicine causes unpleasant effects, such as nausea, vomiting, headache, flushing (reddening of the face, neck, or chest), sweating, and chest pain.”

      Also found it seem to some on effect on scabies & intestinal worms in the 1940’s
      Tested on HIV, and recently on Covid.
      Later found it could in a few cases proved to cause fatal damage to the liver.

      I have worked with people that did voluntarily use this to inhibit how much they dranked.
      A beer or 2 was alright, but anything more really unsettled them.

      Now supposedly better drugs are available, and seems to also line up on opioid addictions too.

      Narcane has proved itself as many first aiders in the USA carry this, as an antidote, & can seem to be incredible.

      People chasing the “high” to “get out of it”,

    Dear Phil,
    This election is critical for New Zealand’s future.
    I’m asking for your support for Chris Luxon and National’s campaign to change the government and get our country back on track.
    I know Chris Luxon personally.
    He came into politics because he really believes New Zealand is the best country in the world and he simply doesn’t accept that this is as good as it gets.
    I know he has the skills to get our country back on track and improve the lives of all New Zealanders.
    Yours sincerely,

    Rt Hon Sir John Key

  15. This is interesting. Jo Nova has a piece up about the ULez zones in London and how the public are protesting like mad. In an update to the article she has this :

    ” One scaffolder hit with £11,500 in similar penalties took City Hall to the court and won a legal verdict this week that the Lez signs (Low Emission Zone) are not lawful.

    He said: “The Road Traffic Act states if there is a risk that motorists are going to be charged, you have to let them know. But the low emission zone signs just say ‘Lez’ or ‘Ulez Zone’. They don’t make it clear about charges.” He added of the signs: “Just saying you are in a zone is, by itself, meaningless.” “They need to tell you not just where you are but what happens, in other words a charge could be incurred.

    — The Sun.

    The legal win is not necessarily binding though, but is deemed “persuasive” in court. ”

    How long before someone does this in NZ about something in Te Reo or mainly Te Reo—not necessarily a road sign , but any information about something that could incur a penalty if you do not obey ?

    Syphilis cases were once rare to find, but there’s been a big increase in the number of reported cases in Auckland over the past seven years.

    There has been a particularly sharp uptick in Auckland’s number of cases between 2021 and 2022, with a 50% increase in people with confirmed syphilis.

    There’s also been a shift in the demographics of Aucklanders testing positive for syphilis.

    But if left untreated, some people can get late stage syphilis years after their original infection, which can damage their brain, heart, nerves, liver, blood vessels and bones.

      • Doesn’t appear to have used an agent, and didn’t do a meth test before renting, which is why she failed in court.
        Have to test before and after tenancy to prove it in court.
        Thats a bit of a rort and great for the testing agencies like all these scum rent seekers that landlords have to keep up with.
        People who have to check your insulation, people who have to check you smoke alarms, people who have to work out if you have enough insulation.

        Add all that in every year and you wonder why people quit. Oh and don’t forget the council rates for services provided to the tenant, including but not always water,. rubbish , all the sports amenities and roads the landlord pays for that is not recoverable.

          It’s just as well you do because after paying extortionate rent most tenants would be pushing their luck to buy a few packets of instant noodles & a cheeseburger as a weekly treat never mind chip in for a road to get to the hovel.

          But tell me. When did it become standard practise for a landlord not to include outgoings such as rates when deciding the rent for a property? Unless it’s a figure drawn out of their arses as I’ve long suspected.

            Imo services such as water usage, wheelie bins etc should fall on the tennant.

            Once again nasska champions for scum pos tennants all cuz his grandkids lack the drive, upskilling and financial constraint needed to buy their own place
            Personally i think renting houses should be banned, not cuz of evil landlords but due to ungrateful peices of shit that bitch and moan slagging off those that are willing to provide a half million + dollar house for a measley few hundred bux per week.
            See how much they hate landlords after a few weeks under a bridge or in a tent crammed along side a million other whinging entitled cnuts.

              Could it be that instead they may, at a price set by supply & demand, be purchased by owner occupiers? Is it possible that western civilisation could once again prosper under true capitalism rather than leveraged ticket clipping?

                We dont have capitalism and never will see genuine capitalism again (my generation have never exp it at all), we have a rort in near every aspect of living costs/consumerism.

                Capitalism was once as simple as supply and demand, sometime in the past 70? years capitalism has morphed into creation of demand.

                Even if land was free you can no longer build a cheap family size house, materials alone for a house cost many times more then what an average auckland house cost back in the 60s, then add council bullshit, numerous tradies and other ticket clippers and youre easily at 3-400k for just the building…. then the artificially inflated land price (thanks council) and youve got todays house prices.

                Because the land is so bloody expensive and the hassle so great now many folk building now decide (or forced via covenant) to go all out and build a mcmansion which just makes the whole thing even more overpriced.

                Very tempting and I can’t really complain about my temants. Just average people who in nearly all cases don’t want to own a house. Yep, there are plenty of people you would dump under a hedge if your third-world logic was taken notice of.

    And astonishingly, it will not cost him a cent because all the money he won comes from his insurance company.

    Larry Rutman, of Owensboro, was awarded the windfall after a court determined he ’caused body damage through negligence and carelessness’.

    ‘I paid all that insurance for a long time just in case something unforeseen like this ever happened,’ Mr Rutman said.

    After the accident – which Mr Rutman claims affected his memory and made him oversexed – he was planning to sue the boomerang manufacturer until his lawyer advised him against it.

    • only dumb bastards would ever watch or read the hideous virus know as teevee one
      So that is the level they have to explain at, I guess !
      If they are even capable

      Anyhow, in the 12 years that there was universal franchise for Maori males but not white/non maori males , Maori males could register and vote on both roles.
      They never bothered much to fix it in that time because the ‘Maori only’ roll was going to only be around for 5 years.
      Meanwhile, in 2023…….

    • While they don’t get an extra vote the way Maori are being encouraged to vote by their leaders can produce an unintended outcome.

      Say someone in a Maori electorate & on the Maori electoral roll votes for Labour with their party vote but uses their electoral vote to back The Maori Party. The party vote will help Labour because they will win far less electorates than their party vote of 0.83% per seat of total votes will give them. Their share of the party vote is all important.

      But the Maori seats will effectively be decided on the electorate vote & if the Maori Party candidates do well as they probably will they have a good chance of producing an overhang as they did in 2008.

      As Maori traditionally support the Left by splitting their vote they can game the system.

  18. Just watched Newshub expose Labour telling lies about what National wants to do with student loans and interest on student loans. But they then spent an inordinate time basically mocking phrases of speech Chris Luxon uses.

    Bloody Leftwing toe-rags.

    Talking of the election, James Shaw has lost his mind over Nationals intention to use some of the ETS to fund tax cuts. Apparently he is ”incensed.” Oh dear, how sad, never mind.

    I’ve just heard from a number of businesses that they have decided that they’ll be closing their doors if Labour gets back in. Imagine that being your legacy

    We might join them. Only continuing to keep our ratbags employed. Barely making ends meet now.😐

    • In every adversity there is oppourtunity.
      look around and see what you can do to better your business.
      Quite a few I know are busy as, including ourselves. But we make a lot of effort to be better.
      When you are busy the accountant says put your prices up and stay busy. Find better customers, do things differently, reduce your costs i.e. become more efficient and these days that means computer savvy or better equipment.

      It sounds easy but it just hard at work.
      We are very unlikely to have an internal recession so long as the new Govt cuts the slack out of the Public Service and changes a few laws around employment and efficiency.
      FWIW.

  20. RCR’s lead news story for this morning:

    ……”.Facebook has halted an Australian fact-checking initiative from monitoring content on its platform after an investigation by Sky News. The investigation uncovered a hidden foreign-funded effort to sway the upcoming Voice referendum. The powerful RMIT FactLab, previously paid up to $740,000 yearly by Meta, will no longer assess content veracity while Meta and the International Fact Checking Network investigate its operations.”……

    From https://www.skynews.com.au/business/media/facebook-suspends-australian-factchecking-operation-amid-foreign-influence-scandal-uncovered-by-fact-check-files/news-story/8df4dc7bcbc4ac5a4b005fc4c72c5b7f

    …..”Facebook has blocked an Australian fact checking operation from policing content on its platform after a Sky News Australia investigation uncovered a secret foreign-funded bid to influence the upcoming Voice referendum.”…….

    Pity we don’t have a news outlet with the integrity of Sky News. Then we might hear a little more about who is really behind pushing NZ into the co-governance swamp.

    • It’s a cabal of sadistic and cruel totalitarians who want total domination and control of us. Even your thoughts.

      Most people can’t comprehend how dark and twisted they are. You got a tiny wee glimpse with Ardern. She’s far worse than people like Mao and Stalin as she wants global domination.

    • The discussion on X today centred around one social media app to rule them all (by design)
      Musk just tweeted this.

      Elon Musk@elonmusk

      Video & audio calls coming to X:

      – Works on iOS, Android, Mac & PC
      – No phone number needed
      – X is the effective global address book

      That set of factors is unique.

      • The eu think they can sensor the world and the big companies. They are going at al;l of the.
        The only one who can tell them to piss off is Musk.
        He owns the satellites that beam out his stuff.
        The EUcan piss their pants and throttle Fb and Google as Musk may not carry their stuff and they have no real alternative yet. Oh and no money to change that.

    Last day of Parliament & the Prime Minister & Deputy’s answers to questions about the state of the country are “cheer up”.

    We don’t have enough money to feed our families. Barely covering the bills. Stuggling to fill the gas tank. Crime is out of control. They can go f*ck themselves.

    • Notice the more out of control a govt gets the more out of control crime becomes?
      Thats because the lowlife scum crims see the biggest crims in the country getting away with it everyday and reaping the rewards.

  22. Woman sentenced after lying about rape to hide affair

    A married woman falsely claimed she was sexually assaulted in order to access free STD testing after having an affair.

    Renee Skoglund, 30, will spend two years on community control and eight years on probation after striking a plea deal with Tampa prosecutors. During her sentencing hearing last week, prosecutors said Skoglund travelled from South Dakota to Hillsborough County, Florida to cheat on her spouse, FOX13 reports.
