  1. Good morning one and all you fighters for freedom. I see the scam whakakooootaaki or what ever it is is out again. I had my renewal a couple of weeks ago but today received another demand for registration of my car from ???? So watch out the bastards.

    • Lizziep,5 weeks today there will hopefully be some feelings of relief and euphoria in our country, My advice is to enjoy it while you can because it’ll be fleeting and only semi sweet.
      If whoever takes the treasury benches in October doesn’t embark on a painful misery enducing austerity our future will involve passing Venezuela on the way down the shitter as that country inches it’s way up as the sanctions against their energy industry are loosened, who could ever had imagined that scenario? ME that’s who.

        • IAASB, If we don’t seriously tighten our belts and soon we are doomed , I doubt Luxton and Seeless has the spine to do what’s right .
          It’s not no going to affect my Mrs and Myself but we worry about our children and grandchildren just imagine what the place will be like in 20 years if someone doesn’t do something soon.
          BTW, ” the NZ health authorities have been notoriously slow in reporting their covid vaccine damages and excess death levels for the entire covid pandemics duration”. Dr John campbell today , well done labour we wouldn’t expect anything else from you.

        • As a bit of balance to that.
          While building I doing what building always does there are other things happening.
          Tourists are pouring into the country from overseas. We don’t charge them enough.
          Mycontacts with BNB’s tell me the bookings have gone way up and after surviving on locals the tourists are getting in ahead. That will have an effect.
          We are building more bridges and big roads than we have in many years. There’s more needed. Now that is taxpayer money but it helps in a recession and is what bolger and co should have done way back them instead taking money from beneficiaries who were struggling for work and feeding them selves. Thats the Catholic way and what that bald headed prick will do. After all he has a Finance Nancy with did english literature or something much like the fat bastard we have now. That doesn’t bode well.
          We can stop allowing immigration if things get tough as that will allow people to keeptheir jobs and we inly have to look at how many Kiwi’s reacted to lockdowns with starting doing stuff. Remember the Chooice website that people started making and selling things from. Given the freedom to excel Kiwis do that but my concern if that the Nats and Act will not allow that freedom but will be business as we have always had. with money handed out to people to do what they should do themselves, making our problem worse.

          Mnay households are debt free, many households have a lot of money flowing into them and in any community the households matter.
          Then the big issue ids the law that allows councils like our own here to build edifices to their own glory. seems to be a trend and something we can live without until the rainy days are over, which they will be.
          Just a matter of doing the basics well.
          But will we?

  2. The Labour Government through their very corrupt Ministry of Environment are systemically ramming through processes to make legislation very costly & sticky to repeal.

    ….. They told the Ministry they did not think it was appropriate for the taxpayer to be funding a Federated Farmers process only weeks before an election.
    The Feds told the Ministry they didn’t want the $600,000 and that they would go public about the offer. ….

    https://breakingviewsnz.blogspot.com/2023/09/peter-williams-what-is-mfe-up-to.html?m=1

    This is not the only very costly push as Ministry of Environment have been hiring very highly paid coordinators for the Farm Fresh Water Plans.
    These will be the people who will direct & control farms in the name of :— Environment. … yeah right …
    …. Salary range for this role is from $193,083 up to $235,101 pa ….

    ….. A key priority for the Ministry is building Te Ao Māori capability.
    This means we work with our Treaty partners to advance Māori priorities for the environment and for environmental success.
    We will be confident and coordinated in our ongoing engagement with Māori and lead the natural resources system in engaging for success with tangata whenua.
    We will grow our capability and capacity to accurately reflect Māori views in our work.
    We accurately reflect Te Tiriti o Waitangi and Te Ao Māori into our everyday work, by delivering on Te Ao Hurihuri, our Māori capability strategy. ….

    http://www.maoripacificjobs.co.nz/jobs/ringatohu-hotaka-programme-director-freshwater-farm-plans-flexible ….

    Bear in mind now the Regional Councils are also been hiring these “coordinators”, & then charge farmers for those costly plans, that will gain compliance via fees, permits, infringements & penalties.

  3. A young priest approached his older colleague.

    “Father Brian, I need to confess,” he said. “I’ve performed a despicable act on one of the choirboys.”

    “This is not the right place for such a confession Michael,” the older priest replied.

    “You’re right. I’ll turn myself in to the police.”

    “The police? Heavens no. I meant save it for Friday evening. A bunch of us meet in Flannagan’s to swap stories like this.”

  4. Just been on Air NZ where the safety briefing shows a magic waka sailing with ease through forests and over mountains with just one dude semi-paddling in front. Now that’s science!

  5. Heather du Plessis-Allan: Lose with dignity, don’t lose dirty
    OPINION:

    It’s become hard to believe that Labour’s fibs about National and Act were mistakes. It looks more like a planned campaign of misinformation executed so badly that Labour got busted.

    The first fib looked like the “emotional junior staffer” striking again.

    Someone in Labour put out an Instagram post warning that “A National/Act coalition will not only cut fees free for first-year students, but they will also add interest back on ALL current student loans.” It’s not true.

    National had already said it would keep fees free more than a week earlier. When Labour was busted the party said it was an “outright mistake” and took the post down, and they got the benefit of the doubt.

    The second fib also looked like a mistake because the perpetrator was the infamous blatherer Willie Jackson. In a debate, he said National and Act would scrap the minimum wage. It’s not true. When he was busted he corrected it.

    Senior Labour MP Andrew Little was sprung on his Facebook page saying National and Act would <b?“flog off the schools and sack all the teachers”.

    Labour’s Northcote MP Shanan Halbert was busted saying on his Facebook page that National and Act planned to cut sick leave from 10 days back to five days. Labour’s Christchurch Central candidate Duncan Webb claimed on his FB page that Matariki would be scrapped and, again, that 10 days’ sick leave was in trouble.

    And the Labour Party itself struck again, claiming National and Act would cut free public transport for disabled people. None of these claims are true. Disabled people don’t qualify for free public transport anyway.

    Just to see if there was any more of this around, I did a quick search of the last debate in Parliament and in seconds found Jackson had also run out the fake Matariki story last Thursday saying, “our Matariki holiday — I fear we’ll lose that. It’s all at risk from the National Party.”

    On the same day Labour’s Illam candidate Sarah Pallett said “if National and Act form a Government in October… they will stop the winter energy payment”, when National had pledged to keep the winter energy payment six days earlier. She went on to repeat the fib that the centre-right would “put interest back on student loans”.

    There are too many repetitions for these fibs to be mistakes. The sick leave, Matariki and student loan interest lies were used by multiple people, suggesting something more co-ordinated by Labour.

    Porkies aren’t a surprise in politics. Parties do this all the time. But generally they’re a bit smarter than this. They might warn that a minor coalition party will force the major coalition party to introduce something unpopular, like a tax. That’s much cleverer and harder to deny than just telling outright lies.

    Clearly, Labour has got desperate. They’ve run out of every other strategy. Policy hasn’t worked. The big one was supposed to be GST off fruit and vegetables. They’re so embarrassed by it they barely talk about it anymore. Hipkins hasn’t worked. He’s now neck and neck with Christopher Luxon in polls. Going dirty is all Labour has. And it’s probably not to win the election, but just to keep the polling high enough to save the furniture. On current numbers, they stand to lose about half their MPs.

    Going dirty is not a good strategy though. Telling fibs, calling Act racists, making excuses for their union buddies buying attack ads on Luxon can backfire.

    Sure, some voters will hear the fibs and not hear the corrections and will be freaked out enough to flip away from the centre-right and back to Labour.

    But there are plenty of other voters who will see the desperation and nastiness for what it is and find it sad and ugly. It’s especially bad for Labour because it’s so off-brand. They’ve just pushed the “Be Kind” schtick for five years. It’s whiplash-inducing to go from Jacinda hugging everyone to Chris’ troops spreading misinformation on Facebook with a brazenness that would make the anti-vaxxers blush.

    If Labour’s going to lose, it’s probably better to lose with dignity than to lose dirty.”

  6. Scribble features strikes again 🤡💩

    Rawiri Waititi: ‘National, ACT want to see Māori die 10 years early’
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/09/10/rawiri-waititi-national-act-want-to-see-maori-die-10-years-early/

    Te Pati Māori co-leader Rawiri Waititi says “National and ACT want to see Māori die 7-10 years early” — a suggestion that has been deemed “appallingly reckless”.

    It comes after an independent report this week which found the newly-formed agency had severely missed its year one targets.

    According to the review, Te Aka Whai Ora underspent by tens of millions, failed to recruit enough staff, and has been struggling to plan ahead.

    Waititi said commissioning the report was the “stupidest thing that ever happened”.

  8. “The great body of the Europeans throughout the colony now regard the natives with indifference. They do not pretend to understand the native character. They do not trouble themselves to entertain anticipations of their advancement to civilisation. They look upon them as an obstacle to the spread of settlement, and so far a drawback to the colony.”
    NZ Herald, 1897.

    “The seamy side of Maori life, as of all savage life, was patent to the most unimaginative observer. The traveller found it not easy to dwell on the dignity, poetry, and bravery of a race which contemned​ washing, and lived, for the most part, in noisome hovels … Though a cannibal feast was a rare orgie​, putrid food was a common dainty. Without the cringing manner of the Oriental, the Maori had his full share of deceitfulness. Elaborate treachery is constantly met with in the accounts of their wars. If adultery was rare, chastity among the single women was rarer still.”
    William Pember Reeves in The Long White Cloud, 1898.

  9. Sure this relates to Australia, and the reason for the “Voice”.
    This shows how UNDRIP which through the National Party, New Zealand is also signed up with to bring to an active part in NZ legislation.

    SMOKING GUN – Explosive new footage proves Voice/Treaty link to UNDRIP agenda!
    https://youtu.be/t2J2SbBWGBQ
    4 mins 38 secs : 9th September 2023 : Pauline Hanson’s Please Expain

    … SMOKING GUN – This explosive footage proves any claims that Voice has nothing to do with treaty is a lie!

    Megan Davis, a key architect of Albanese’s risky and divisive Voice, says all the quiet parts out loud in this shocking newly uncovered footage.

    “At the core of Uluru is treaty.”

    “We now have a benchmark for treaty negotiations in the form of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)”

    “A political Voice is needed first to do hard work that is needed to underpin treaty making.”

    “It will COMPEL the Commonwealth to have us at the table.”

    “It was meant to give us control of the IAS (Indigenous Advancement Strategy) money and the funds that they took away after the abolition of ATSIC.”

    Note how they are to formulate the Uluru Treaty, which has all the fine print, that PM Albanese says does not have to be read.
    Although different, it is the same deviousness to consider that is how the NZ Treaty of Waitangi is being reformulated.
    All done in a “rat-shit” way, leveraging here, backing of there, tightening up over there.

    All based on UNDRIP
    https://humanrights.gov.au/our-work/un-declaration-rights-indigenous-peoples-1#:~:text=The%20United%20Nations%20Declaration%20on,the%20rights%20of%20Indigenous%20peoples.

    1000’s of more land claims are now in the starting blocks in Australia.
    In New Zealand if you think the claims are almost over, it is just that NZ now has well proven channels of how they can be swept through.

    First the “Voice”;— then the massive ongoing “Invoice”

    • The sun returning to this side of the equator, the change of equinox in around 22nd September, so as the natural heating occurs, seems to be bring on those naturally occurring equinox winds, that any outdoorsman, like a farmer finds makes docking a bit more trickier with the scrim for the temporary holding yards as it can really blow.

      Of course a wind dries things out. Always has, if it is not carrying fog, drizzle, or rain.
      More than that is where the wind naturally lifts over land, drops any moisture, and the noticeable effect is a drying wind on the far side.

      Those people are propagandist terrorists, creating terror to bring about more cunt controls, to make people compliant, & the officious seek to be the enforcers, all on their absolute ludicrous collectivist controlling terms.

  11. The Act Party says it will allow builders to opt out of council building consents to improve the supply, quality and cost of housing.

    Party leader David Seymour announced the housing policy today, which would also include scrapping the reformed Resource Management Act and using building insurance as an alternative to building consent authorities.

    “Housing is still in crisis and Labour and National are equally responsible, it’s time to stop demand-side policies that aren’t working and set a target for supply,” he said.

    “Tax changes, loan to value ratios, first home grants, and foreign buyer bans have not dealt with the underlying shortage, just tried and failed to ensure that politically-favoured people ended up with more of the limited supply of housing available,” Seymour said.

    We did that here in Taur anga. Turned into an ongoing disaster with leaky homes.

    In principle I agree with that as long as it removes the ongoing resposibil;it from the ratepayers and taxpayers.
    As long as the construction rules are well established and adgered too
    As long as companies and insurance companies cannot collapse their companies and run away.

  12. All vehicles to move to road user charges under National, including EVs

    National will make electric vehicles subject to road user charges after March, and funding for roads will eventually be obtained through pay per kilometre charges, National transport spokesperson Simeon Brown told Stuff on a visit to Nelson on Friday.

    At present, light electric vehicles are exempt from road user charges until 31 March 2024.

    National would not propose to extend that exemption, Brown said.

    The exemption was put in place until electric vehicles hit around 2% of the light vehicle fleet, and they were now at that point, he said.

    There may be some underground and concealed ones I did not discover lurking there, but it seems Rotorua is devoid of this culinary wonderment. I will look for them elsewhere next time I leave this fine Burg.

    • Are you sure NZ was not an out post of the Vatican? 🙂 🙂
      Based on a “papal-bull”… “of so-called ‘Doctrine of Discovery’”

      September 10th 2023 …. The Human Rights Commission (HRC) published the Maranga Mai report in February 2023 which says,
      “The principal recommendation of Maranga Mai! tasks the government with committing to constitutional transformation and establishing co-governance …
      Central to this reform would be the government condemning and rejecting the constitutional application of the Doctrine of Discovery to Aotearoa…”

      ….. “has become known as the legal and political ‘doctrine of discovery’” is not the Pope’s to revoke, and nor did he do so. ….
      https://breakingviewsnz.blogspot.com/2023/09/barrie-davis-maranga-mai-and-doctrine.html?m=1

      To create a doctrine supposedly in rule in NZ, so that it can be repudiated to jump to Co-Governance.
      When that doctrine, papal-bull was never in place. [despite what nasska says 🙂 but do agree with the guilt indulgences 🙂 in NZ politics. rol help me]
      A way of enacting a Catholic guilt syndrome of, needing much repentance, in the form of indulgent compensation, and relinquishment of any control & power.
      To further make the treaty more flexible so the change’s now being pushed seem to be more righteous.

      The media itself stifles debate, as they are guided that this is the best way for maori to be redeemed to its power.
      The media are supporting the Catholic version to gain maori co-governance and are doing every thing they can to stop it being openly discussed before the election.

  15. In a scathing piece, Herald on Sunday Columnist Heather Du Plessis-Allan called out senior Labour MP Andrew Little’s Facebook post where he stated that National and Act intend to “flog off the schools and sack all the teachers.”

    Shanan Halbert, Labour’s Northcote MP, came under scrutiny for his post claiming that National and Act were scheming to reduce sick leave from 10 to just 5 days.

    Duncan Webb, Labour’s candidate for Christchurch Central, faced similar criticisms for his Facebook assertion that the celebration of Matariki faced discontinuation.

    Additionally, he repeated concerns about the 10-day sick leave provision.

    Du Plessis-Allan didn’t stop there, drawing attention to comments made by Ilam MP, Sarah Pallett, during Parliament’s concluding debates. Pallett stated, “if National and Act form a Government in October… they will stop the winter energy payment”, a claim made despite National’s assurance of upholding the payment just six days prior.

    She also highlighted the assertion that the centre-right faction would reintroduce “interest on student loans.”

    Shocking but true: students prefer jolt of pain to being made to sit and think

    It was not so much how hard people found the challenge, but how far they would go to avoid it that left researchers gobsmacked. The task? To sit in a chair and do nothing but think.

    So unbearable did some find it that they took up the safe but alarming opportunity to give themselves mild electric shocks in an attempt to break the tedium.

    Two-thirds of men pressed a button to deliver a painful jolt during a 15-minute spell of solitude. One man – an outlier – found thinking so disagreeable he opted for a shock 190 times.
