  1. I’d just like to recommend that all YSB’rs go to the last few hours of the day before’s comments especially if they need a humorous start to their day ,yesterday’s banter was comedy gold and I defy anyone to not get a lift from going back for a look, EXCELLENT.
    Unbelievably after watching an interview with some native woman ,Moana somebody and the maggot peters’s I grudgingly had to admit to myself that the dwarf was reasonably impressive ,not by his comments on what he’s gonna do for the country because everyone knows that’s just lies but by the way he handled the aggressive bone waring kuia that tried to belittle and attack him but instead exposed herself for the talentless diversity hire (probably lesbian) she actually is , Why would any organisation hire a woman to carry out journalism when she’s obviously not equipped for the job?
    Its scaringly like what NZrs are about to do on October 14th for the leadership of our precious country,hire a different gang of talentless buffoons to replace the labour losers who’ve wrecked our country, its not progress folks and everbody knows it..

  2. In true traditional means and methods Tauranga Early Settlers have gifted (a way of which something can be clawed back when it suits, known elsewhere as “Indian Giving”) a digital curriculum. This digital curriculum bought by Waka from Hawaiki is so steeped in roots and tradition that “Tauranga Moana iwi have gifted the taonga of a new te ao Māori curriculum to schools and kura in the region, allowing Māori history to be “living and breathing” in classrooms and preserving Māori mātauranga (knowledge).”

    If you have children attending school in Tauranga, you will be instructed to be most grateful that your child will now take this knowledge as ground breaking, inspirational and enable him/them/they to outshine all other students in the known world. An advantage, no other student will have and no doubt, it will be eagerly sought out and grasped as an educational breakthrough the likes the world has never seen before. It is expected that this traditional learning of “Maori History” will eventually supercede reading, writing and arithmetic in schools throughout New Zealand due to it’s wonderfulness.

    • “gift” in maoridom usually means recieve.large sums of taxpayer money to do something then once complete recieve another large sum of taxpayer money (koha) in return for “gifting” it back to whitey.

      unreal this rort is toleterated and serious questions not raised.
      hooli you really should get into using some of your time writing a few oia requests, finding out how much this one cost would be eyewatering i bet.

      some costs are included in that link but it dosent contain the final koha payment for the gifting…
      Popping told the Bay of Plenty Times after the event the project had received $789,840 from TECT, $225,000 from BayTrust and $168,480 from the ministry for the three-year period between 2022 and 2024.

      who wants to be those who shared their family histories got financially compensated for doing so? jobs and $$$ for the bros

    • given our local population is rapidly changing colour and ethnicity it will get lost in the paper work.
      Our indian population is growing faster than you can say The Indians are coming.
      They are taking the housing off the ferals, own a big chunk of the Kiwifruit industry, are into the usual shops and pizza places, taxis etc.
      The biggest house builder in Hamilton last year was Pragma. An Indian owned enterprise. They also do commercial and subdivision development. Big one at the moment.
      One will marry aTainui Princess in due course so that will be interesting.

      Soon be more Indian doctors and scientists in the country than Maori.

      • V, I do not have a problem with the influx of Indian migrants who want to get off their arse and work, making this country a better place. It sure is changing the demographic and even here in Buttfuck Darkest King Country, we are getting a huge number of them. They all are looking for work, doing long distance truck driving, farm work, you name it, but every day in my employment I see more and more Early Settlers do less and less. The thing is, the Early Settler is rapidly getting left behind, due to apathy and entitlement.

  3. question.
    who is the political party ” animal justice party aotearoa new zealand”?

    answer.
    the party polling higher then DNZ!

    ill be nice tho and give DNZ credit… latest poll has them double the party vote as new conservatives with DNZ on a massive 0.2%

    also of note is nutz bitch liz gunn and her nzloyal party have shot to the top polling above all of the nutter parties, still needs any 3.8% but tripled support within less then 2 weeks of being included in the one news poll.
    still a huge 12% undecided so the election can still go either way, could also turn out to be the worst voter turnout with every voting option so unappealing which would be rather fascinating esp after the record voter turnout last election.

    • i still also find it hilarious people voting for these nutz fucker freedom parties think its gunna revolutionize parliament and change everything…. dont do drugs kids, it makes you believe in dumb shit like that.
      at best theyll get to wear ever growing pieces of greenstone for attention, perhaps wear a cowboy hat and if they want a day off them breach name suppression laws. thats about the extent of power a full on retard political party can wield once elected.

  4. A political science student was crossing the road one day when a frog called out to him and said, “if you kiss me, I’ll turn into a beautiful princess.” The student picks up the frog and puts it in his pocket.

    The frog spoke up again and said, “if you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess. I’ll stay with you for one week.” The student takes the frog out of his pocket, smiles at it, and puts it back into his pocket.

    Desperate, the frog then cries out, “what is the matter? I told you that I’m a beautiful princess, that I’ll be your girlfriend and do anything you want. Why won’t you kiss me?” The grad student said, “Look, I’m a political scientist. I have no idea what it would be like to have a girlfriend. But a talking frog would be worth a fortune.”

  5. 91 octane will climb to $3.50 by Christmas

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2023/09/high-petrol-prices-could-see-interest-rates-increase-economist.html
    An economist is warning rising petrol prices could potentially lead to interest rates increasing once again – bad news as people continue to battle a cost-of-living crisis.

    Fuel prices are on track to break records this summer, with some experts predicting the price of 91 octane will climb to $3.50 by Christmas.

    It has led to fears it could see mortgage and interest rates rise yet again as Kiwis continue to battle a cost-of-living crisis.

    Fok told AM co-host Ryan Bridge if general inflationary pressures stay high, then Kiwis will need to get used to living with high interest rates.

    • Is the the funny pages

      an economist

      I ran my virus checker 2 times then went to the new scrub
      and this is what I got

      …Milford Asset Management portfolio manager Felix Fok told AM on Thursday a big reason for the increasing petrol prices is down to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. …

      this wanker is a genius.
      .blame it on the Russians
      – it was Putin’s fault
      or Trump
      or recently, Russell Brand

      then some more shit
      “Earlier this year it went as low as US$70 a barrel but, within about three months, it rebounded to about US$95 a barrel. So that jump of $25 has been the recent development. ”

      So the US War of Aggression on Russia, via Ukraine, was going on this year.
      Why did the price drop
      Obviates prior economist ramblings

      Felix Fok is mumbling gobshite.

  6. Every disaster in Godzone is followed by the uninsured crawling out from under the wreckage of their houses, begging bowls extended towards the Horn of Cornucopia (sometimes referred to as the gummint). We who bother spending upwards of $5000/year to insure our properties pay twice. Once through premiums & again through increased taxes to keep our improvident fellow citizens out of tents.

    But the insurance companies have a part to play other than the receipt of their ever rising premiums. They accept the risk & should be expected to pay up within a reasonable time.

    Not so. The 66 residents of Te Karaka after seven months of inaction & haggling are still waiting for their homes to be repaired or payouts made.

    • Once upon a time a mortgagee (usually a bank) would not lend on a property unless their interest, as mortgagee, was entered on the property’s insurance policy. But the big four Aussie banks asked;
      “Why do waste money employing staff to monitor the insurance on mortgaged properties?
      Because, so that our interest is protected.
      But, if something bad happens the politicians, in an effort to gather votes from the imprudent, will step in and make it good, so, therefore, we don’t need to monitor it”
      And they don’t. Mug taxpayers and borrowers, like Nasska, can suck it up the appropriate orifice.

    • Tauhei Notts. Interesting.
      About 2 months ago I had 1 of the big banks ring me, as to why I had not paid the premium or if I had changed to another Insurance Company.
      I was very late, because of questioning the premium, & in part getting the Insurance Co. to adjust some things. 🙂

      Being wary of scams. I then had him to check my statements, on his bank computers as surely he would know my bank account number and so did not need to know anything else.
      Probably confirmed my identity by voice intonation vibes whatever, but he did not mention that.
      Because if they were able to ring me up. They surely would have access to that. He did not ask me for the password.
      He was able to eventually see that recently I had paid, & told me how much I paid as a premium & the name of the Insurance Company and that much later date of payment.

      The thing that worries me is that in accessing my bank account, on my laptop that is dedicated to banking only, so no emails, no other website or whatever..
      The only thing is the fucking apps like weather temps etc plus other things like news head lines or so.
      Could my accounts all be cleaned out & leaving me with a liability from a massive draw-down of credit like from overdraft funding.

      Bring back cheques ! 🙂

    • nasska the convo around insurance came up at smoko this morn.
      all of our house insurance premiums have gone through the fucking roof this year, due to flooding/ weather events blah blah blah.
      boss was right pissed off amd thinks same as me… it should all be risk based premiums, own/build near ocean, rivers, low lying flood prone areas = alot higher premiums. same with building on the side of steep shit or in the bush etc where slip or fire riskis highest.

      if i mentioned that uninsured were better off then insured my boss would go fucking ape shit at it. aint it utter bullshit, same as in chch. fuck the uninsured cunts they gambled and lost so they shouldnt get a single cent from anyone esp taxpayer handouts.

  7. From an email by Simon Black at Sovereign Man:
    September 20, 2023
    In 1958, Leonard E. Read wrote the book I, Pencil.
    As the book’s title suggests, this is the story about a pencil, told from the pencil’s perspective.
    The pencil traces his beginnings – from the cedar forests of Northern California and Oregon – to the mill in San Leandro, California, where specialized equipment cuts the logs into pencil-length slats.
    Next, the newly-cut slats move to the pencil factory, where machinery cuts eight grooves into each slat and inserts graphite.
    Read goes on to further describe each part of the pencil manufacturing process.
    His point: Even something as simple as manufacturing a pencil is a highly complex process. Yet left to the free market, profit incentives allow individuals and companies to efficiently combine raw materials and produce any in-demand product.
    No committee of central planners is required anytime during the manufacturing process.
    So, if central planning cannot produce something as simple as a pencil, how can governments expect to coordinate and control a product as critical and vital as energy – whose production is exponentially more complex than a pencil?
    They can’t. But they’ll still try.
    To be fair, although the current administration in Washington has enacted plenty of anti-energy policies, they aren’t solely responsible for the world’s dire energy predicament. In fact there’s plenty of blame to go around.
    In recent years, “woke capitalism” has gained a serious foothold in western financial markets.
    Led by the movement’s high priests, like Larry Fink (who manages $10 TRILLION at Blackrock), and Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum, one of their key tenets is replacing fossil fuels with green energy solutions.
    Sadly, many of the world’s largest energy companies have bent the knee to the Holy Climate Warriors. Now, at Sovereign Man, we like a clean and pristine environment as much as anyone, and we have a strong desire to leave a better world for our children.
    But inefficient green energy solutions like solar and wind simply aren’t the way forward. Here’s why:
    Let’s suspend reality for a moment and pretend that Klaus Schwab and Greta Thunberg are right… and that global energy should be 100% renewable.
    What would it actually take to do this? Remember, solar panels, wind turbines, and batteries require lots of raw materials.
    According to estimates by Professor Simon Michaux of the Geological Survey of Finland, achieving the Schwab-Thunberg-Fink dream world require:
    • 218 million tons of cobalt
    • 899 million tons of lithium
    • 4.3 billion tons of copper.
    Let’s tackle copper first.
    In 2019, the world produced 22 million tons of copper. So, a full transition to renewable energy would require 100% of the world’s annual copper production for the next 195 years.
    That means that, for the next two centuries, there would be ZERO copper left over for anything else. Only renewable energy. Also bear in mind that solar panels wear out after a few decades… So, after 195 years, the world will have had to replace all of its panels at least 5 times.
    Now, if you think that’s a daunting challenge, lithium and cobalt are even more interesting…
    Global lithium and cobalt production in 2022 were approximately 130,000 tons each. Therefore, based on Prof. Michaux’s estimates, the transition to renewable energy requires 1,676 years of annual cobalt production, and a whopping 6,915 years of lithium production.
    No, those are not misprints.
    In short, the climate fanatics don’t realize that their renewable energy dream requires so many raw materials that it would take nearly 7,000 years to mine all the necessary resources.
    But reality has never been their area of expertise. Instead, they fly around on their private jets to luxurious climate conferences, to complain about fossil fuel companies. They pass legislation and resolutions. They put out hit jobs in the media.
    But just like the humble pencil at the beginning of this article, the fanatics and central planners don’t contribute a single thing. They don’t mine an ounce of lithium, manufacture any solar panels, nor produce even 1 kilowatt-hour of electricity.
    Does this sound a bit ridiculous? We think so too. And this is why, no matter how fanatical the climate cult becomes, fossil fuels aren’t going anywhere for a long, long time… not without most of the world’s population sitting in the dark. And we don’t think people will stand for that.

    • Thanks Curious, as I was thinking on that the other day.

      The problem is they are looking to stitch many of us up, in stages, to the far end being 15 minute cities.

      Already there are many streets & towns covered by CCTV or if private, then police can still demand access.
      It is like a the fishermen in NZ, being stitched up in the over reach of quotas, and government deck cameras.
      Another phase will be in farming, more than just google satellite, & Regional & District Council over head flights.
      It will be drones, plus cctv cameras to be installed in many places on a farm, but be monitored by officious authoritive watch-dogs.
      So one can not even cut down a tree, but find it problematic just to cut anything up for firewood.

      Smart Meters for electricity, was sort of ok for ripple control on water heating, but it is now the thin edge of the wedge absolute control like to heat pumps, air conditioning thermostats, & other appliances in you house, to even line up the electric charging of an ev car as it can fully ration usage.

      All of what you think are the minor stages, are the excuses why they can not quite deliver the goal of the supposed Schwab-Thunberg-Fink dream.
      But the system is relentless, as in telling the “dream” = “lie”, to just get is to get some people to believe, and more importantly to comply, even if the individual’s reason, is to “go along, to get along” as for them, they are doing ok.

      Unwittingly they have no “Curiosity” to look behind the curtain to see that total control seems to be the goals in so many ways to follow the global centralized 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

    • Iaasb, you are so right.

      All this early postal voting, drop in ballot boxes or whatever, means a longer chain of custody for accountability for those voting papers are the seeds to non-accountability => corruption.

      On the day voting, going to the count on the night, a very short chain of custody. means that election officials are so much more easier held to account.
      Where any discrepancy can be pinned much directly on any official, and much more easier to trace just what did happen.

      It is another reason why I also despise people for pushing digital computerized systems, no matter what they say about safeguards.
      NZ is not bad trying to figure in personal ID, though in a way I question how they arrive at Vote ID,
      Still I guess the voters rolls also stops some possible shenanigan’s.
      I would even bring in the finger dye mark on the day too. 🙂

    • Bloomberg has a history of pushing the Green.

      …. remembered Bloomberg’s green regulatory regime …
      .
      ….. Bloomberg shifted his ambitions to the international level.
      Bloomberg is now ” WHO Global Ambassador” for non-communicable diseases. ….
      .
      ….. Bloomberg and WHO President Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus published an op-ed February 3, 2021 on the Bloomberg news channel, titled “Stopping the Next Pandemic Starts Now.”
      In it, they stated, “The pandemic is at the forefront of attention, and it is essential to use this sense of trauma and urgency to begin building the systems that will prepare us for the next one.” …..
      .
      These are the individuals and organizations that have significantly pushed forward the current initiative for the Pandemic Treaty, and changes to global health regulations.
      It is into their hands that we are placing our fate.
      They are to be granted the right to decide about our freedom, civil rights, and health.
      .
      Unlike during COVID-19, democratic parliaments will no longer decide on pandemic measures and vaccine mandates.
      Democratically elected governments will not be held accountable.
      National and international pandemic policies will only be determined by green billionaires and their private foundations, as well as pharmaceutical and financial interests. …….

    • Remember the last 3 expressways/motorways that have been opened in the last 5 years build 10 metres a week with all those heavy trucks, staff, freeloaders and koha.

      NZ has to be at the most unproductive end of any scale.
      The city rail link is under 4 km but with all that machinery, drilling machines and freeloaders will take over six years to build.
      London got on and built its underground in the 1800s.
      If they mechanised and operated like NZ there would still be no London Underground.

  18. This today from my Christchurch property manager.
    “We usually know winters behind us when the market starts to pick up. Not this year. In the nearly 16 years we have been in business this has without doubt been the busiest winter season. The winter immediately following the earthquakes was busy but still dwarfed by 2023. It hasn’t stopped. Lots of new listings and lots of people wanting to rent them. May it continue.

    Again, as we approach an election traditionally the market slows. Not this year. It is as if investors feel a change of Government is a formality and they are back in the market looking at increasing their portfolio’s. House prices at a low (for recent times), demand at a high, rent levels strong – it seems to be a good market sector to be in for landlords.

    Nor has the threatened exodus of landlords from the housing market happened. The media tells us ‘Many landlords have left the sector’ but we have no evidence of this. Property always sell for a variety of reasons but we are unaware of any that have sold due to current market conditions.

    There is strong confidence in the residential rental market at this moment.”

    • Substitute “parasite**” for “landlord” in the statement & it reads better.

      ** ‘parasite’ …….an organism that lives in or on an organism of another species (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other’s expense.

      • So who’s going to provide the housing for people who do not own?.
        The Goo-mint dept that is meant to do it is incompetent and racist.

        Of course the media filth will not highlight this racism but will hound any private landlord where there is a whiff of ‘cultural difference’

        Private landlords have to have a higher standard of housing than the goo-mint Dept.

        So who is going to provide this housing?..
        -The banks . ha ha
        -Summerset or Ryman, Metlifecare ..such a track record of decency, fairness and great prices …NOT
        – the Council – like England has done previously, was 40% of housing stick in the 1970s

        Who else will put up the capital, pay the insurance, clean up the mess afterwards, get bullied by the Tenancy trib thugs.

        if all private landlord stock was sold today to the goo-mint, how much would be added to Goo-mint debt plus annual servicing fees ?
        billion$ upon billions on each count.

        • …….”f all private landlord stock was sold today to the goo-mint”……

          Who said it should be sold to the government? My preference would be for it to be all dumped on the market at one time massively depressing prices so we could start moving back to individual home ownership. The pride of ownership would do more to improve society than anything imaginable.

          Owner occupier instead of rentier capitalism propped up with Welfare for Landlords.

  19. 1000s more cows have to die because some have been found to have the sniffles . Funny thing is they have been working on mrna vax’s for this virus for over 20 years and still it kills more than it saves , so the nz govt just kills the healthy cows in the herd because they might be asymptomatic carriers. Another cindy elimination feckup.

    • they also cannot 100% confirm until their heads have been removed.
      several herds have been culled due to positive tests yet once dead theyve discovered they turned out to be false positive, whole herds also killed for 1 single infection aswell.

      i remember posting on KB in the first few weeks of lockdown, pointing to how elimination of a virus in cows fully tracked and contained in paddocks was proving impossible so how the hell could we stop a flu virus in humans using similar methods minus the culling….

      fast forward a few more years and weve proven elimination is a fairy tale yet the bovis grifters are still pushing it.

  20. Heather reminded me about the interview Mark Mitchell had with Kerre this morning re crime. Mitchell said Coster had lead the police in the wrong direction. He hasn’t said that before. Even after his meeting with the PC during Covid.

    I think the hint may be that it’s time for Coster to move on. Or his contract won’t be renewed. I’m sure the man is smart enough to take the hint. He and Chippy resigning after the election would be a great combo. Harry Tan would not be happy.

  21. Oh dear, another wayward Labour MP. He was the one that complained National’s van Molen was too aggressive with him while questioning him at a select committee.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2023/09/election-2023-labour-s-shanan-halbert-labelled-bully-by-multiple-former-employees.html
    Labour leader Chris Hipkins is standing by one of his MPs, despite a number of former employees coming forward to Newshub calling Shanan Halbert a bully.

    The Labour Party was alerted to concerns about his alleged behaviour a year ago but because staffers wanted to remain anonymous, no formal process was undertaken

    The staff members worked with Halbert in a range of roles. None wanted to appear on camera for fear of retribution. Newshub has agreed to protect their identities.

    They told Newshub that Halbert was “manipulative”, “scheming”, “a narcissist” and that they live in fear of him.

    Newshub tried to organise an on-camera interview with Halbert, but he declined.

    On a quick phone call with Halbert, Newshub asked if he had ever bullied anyone at work.

    “I mean there’s been certainly challenges in employment over different parts of my life but I can’t pinpoint any particular time that you might be referring to,” he said.

    One staff member told Newshub that “he was just an a**hole.”

  22. The Green Parrot Cafe for sale, Winston Peters ‘terribly disappointed’

    One of Wellington’s oldest cafes, the Green Parrot, is up for sale – and long-time customer Winston Peters says he is “terribly disappointed”.

    The café, which first opened in 1926, has been in the family of father and son team Kosta and Chris Sakoufakis for 50 years.

    “A true Wellington icon, it’s been a favourite of politicians, actors, rugby fans and the late-night dining crowd,” the Trade Me description reads.

    One of this crowd is New Zealand First leader Winston Peters, who has been a regular at the Green Parrot since the 70s.

    “It used to be open even when Parliament had closed that night at 10.30pm or 10pm,” he told the Herald.

  23. Iwibuild, by someone else, in another country.

    Ngāi Te Rangi is partnering with US-based home manufacturer Cavco Industries as a way to bring cost-effective housing to iwi members.

    With four facilities in Texas, North Carolina, California and Arizona, a three-bedroom house manufactured by Cavco can cost around NZ$240,000, which includes the build and transportation from the United States to New Zealand, then to wherever the buyer wants to place the house via trailer.
