  1. If you are a caring Native who loves his fellow man, like Te Ahi Moana and Mana Moana of Napier and Loot a premises immediately after a destructive cyclone, it’s OK. As punishment from the Court, you get to have home time.

    Another Dud Judge, Geoff Rea, looks after the communities best interests and sends a message to the community that he will deal firmly and most harshly with Looters and sends them home to play with themselves watch Netflix and work on their next bit of anti social behaviour.

    Three arseholes in one Courtroom at the same time, what are the chances.

  2. havent looked at the babylon bee for a while but it still dosent fail to deliver some top notch real life satire.
    youd think they wouldve run outve piss take subjects but thanks to progressive woketards i think the possibilities are now endless, their writers are pretty clever and witty.
    heres a couple of recent headlines that are probably more true then actual satire…

  3. A farmer stopped by a hardware store and bought a bucket and a gallon of paint. Then he stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose.

    However, struggling outside the store, he wondered how to carry all his purchases home.

    While he was scratching his head, he was approached by a lady who told him she was lost.

    She asked, ‘Can you tell me how to get to this address please?’

    The farmer said, ‘Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to that house. I would walk you there, but I can’t carry this lot.’

    The lady suggested, ‘Why don’t you put the can of paint in the bucket, carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm, and carry the goose in your other hand?’

    ‘Thank you very much,’ he said and proceeded to walk the lady home.

    On the way, he said, ‘Let’s take my short cut and go down this alley. We’ll be there in no time.’

    The lady looked him over cautiously and said, ‘I am a lonely widow without a husband to protect me. How do I know that when we get in the alley you won’t hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and have your way with me?’

    The farmer said, ‘Holy smokes, lady! I’m carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?’

    The lady replied, ‘Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket, and I’ll hold the chickens.’

  4. To see a Bill like this being passed by a Conservative, Tory government, even if it is the UK.
    Here one can see 2 wings of the same bird.

    Katie Hopkins on the ‘Online Safety Bill”…. the policing your speech inside your home.
    https://youtu.be/bBMqCiSbzxw
    7 mins 52 secs : September 25th 2023 :

    Truth becomes an arrest-able offence.
    Camouflaged by “for the sake of the children”, their protection. but it set up to be projected as a ‘catch-all’.
    Definitions are so loose, so one cannot rationalize with the irrationalized.
    Free speech can be legal & also can be deemed harmful.
    ‘Harmful’, can be on ‘reasonable grounds’ be ‘believed’, ‘perceived’ to have ‘indirect’ ‘adverse affects’.
    ‘Sanctions’ can be anything
    Only regard for “free speech” which can steam rollered by the “perceived”
    Systemically tiered, for who can have ‘formal privilege’ like the bought media.
    Live in the “Age of Prohibition” that is of “Free Speech”.

    How far behind will New Zealand be in catching up & “punching above it weight” when a form of this will be slipped through in the forth coming mountain of legislation.?

    When will NZ’s other wing starts flapping in harmony.
    NZ has already experienced a “Ministry of Truth” that was pushed under the duress of pain & death to be the only source of Truth.

Ronnie ,it’s very easy for conservative parties to hold a public meeting without having to worry about that smelly unwashed rabble turning up, hold it on benefit pay out mornings, the scum will either be knocking on their dealers doors or waiting outside the liquor shop for it to open ,,simple really.

    • I remember when synthetics were available for sale. In my area the shop the sold them had a line up most mornings, especially on beanie pay day. Some of these people were scary. They were the type of people you rarely saw in public. They inhabited a world that only was open to them.

  6. ON THE GOOD SHIP LOLLIPOP
    It was well after midnight and the good ship SS Labouring heaved its rusting bulk into the tortuous frigid seas.
    Captain Chumpy was at the helm and hung onto the wet wheel like grim death. His teeth flashed and chattered in the megavolts of the blinding lightening bursts and he could not be sure if the attendant rumbling was coming from the heavy black clouds above or from First mate Robbersons trousers.
    The latter looked decidedly cross legged as he stood in the wheelhouse buckling on his lifebelt and wrapping up a goodly supply of cash, sausage rolls and toilet paper in his hidden stash of single use plastic bags. The ship bucked and every rust stained rivet creaked as it slammed into the oncoming mountainous and violent seas, ice formed on the rigging, handrails and anything else exposed to the howling maelstrom.
    This is just so odd he thought, they were meant to be in the tropics heading for the paradise isles of Co-Governanties, but this looked more like 500 sea miles south of Cape Horn.
    Captain Chumpy called out to the third mate and navigator, Kelvinator Davis, ‘Are you sure you have the right heading and course for our destination third mate?’. ‘No doubt about it sir, I’ll just take a star sighting on the sextant’ as he turned to walk out onto the bridge deck but fell down the latrine/gash chute instead.
    Something just isn’t right, thought Chumpy, as he leant into the brass bridge megaphone to talk to the black gang feeding coals into the fires of hate under the old steam boilers in the stokerhold, deep in the bowels of the ship.
    ‘Yes Cap’n, fourth rate/ mate Maloota here, I know we are making a lot of black smoke but I thought we needed a smoke screen as a diversion given the direction we are heading. With any sort of luck and just like three years ago, we can come out into the open when we have a guarantee of a new company contract in two weeks. Plus we have six million tonnes of really low grade coal…almost camel dung in fact…to get rid of that you imported when you shut down all mining and oil licences.’
    Captain Chumpy slammed the lid of the speaker-tube down, he didn’t trust Maloota, it wasn’t the first time he had spotted her crouching behind the barrels of pork, or the barrons of beef with a sharp knife between her teeth, waiting for an opportune moment for her motley black gang of mutineers, Willy the plunderer and the rest, all well fed at the galleys trough and waiting…waiting.
    The ship had intended to meet up with the SS Victoria but her captain, Danged Andy, had jumped ship and taken the last life boat and food ration pack with him.
    So the SS Labouring charged on into the mounting seas and Captain Chumpy would see the first of many massive icebergs out the bridge all-weather windows, which was really unusual for the mid tropics he mused.
    He knew from his own extensive knowledge of maritime navigational theory, if not in fact practice, that the Earth was indeed flat, and if they were heading in the wrong direction for 6 years then ultimately they would reach the very edge of it. Then what..? He wondered if first mate Grant would mind being a lifeboat, after all, there was more hot air in there than all the steam condensers on the ship put together.
    The ship had already had some incredibly bad luck. One way or another almost the entire ships complement of officers had been cleared out. You could fire a shotgun down the centre of the wardroom table at mess time and hit almost nobody. Of those that it did hit, like Kelvinator for instance, the blast would only make a small scratch on solid bone. Nosey Parker had walked off the ship because he no longer wanted the job of purser, it was just too un-taxing. Kerosene Allan got into a few drams of it and after taking a ships boat rammed others and got chased down by the gendarmerie.
    Others had similarly disgraced themselves, Michael Would who wouldn’t reveal his shares in the shipping line, Jan Tinarsy for telling porkies, poor Stuart Crash for something trivial by comparison, Meng Buffoon, like Cuddles the company passenger, for a myriad of travesties, not the least being the wrong man, wrong job, wrong time, wrong era, wrong planet.
    Cap’n Chumpy looked lonely on the bridge, and he knew that even if he did bring the ship home safely, down below the evil black gang plotted and schemed as they shoveled third rate camel dung into the fires of hell along with what was left of the company finances.
    And worse, only a week before, Cap’n Chumpy had sighted the SS Nation All, steaming full steam ahead in the opposite direction to him, crew all decked out in tropical attire, gay bunting streaming in the wind, lights blazing, on board party in full swing, Captain Baldrick on the bridge and what looked like first officer Saymore holding on to second officer Winestone as he held his arms out on the prow of the vessel.
    The latter drew howls of displeasure from the Labourings captain and just as he was adjusting to the bucking and heaving of the ship, suddenly the seas flattened out under the pull of an enormous current.
    He checked Second Officer Kelvinators charts and plotted positions again, and as he did so, he could hear in the far distance an infernal roar of unimaginable horror, as trillions of tonnes of seawater dropped off the edge of the planet and into the unfathomable depths of space.

  7. Thought for today
    Bob Marley was once asked if there was a perfect woman. He replies :
    Who cares about perfection?
    Even the moon is not perfect, it is full of craters.
    The sea is incredibly beautiful, but salty and dark in the depths.
    The sky is always infinite, but often cloudy.
    So, everything that is beautiful isn’t perfect, it’s special.
    Therefore, every woman can be special to someone.
    Stop being “perfect”, but try to be free and live, doing what you love, not wanting to impress others!

    HMMM.

    When they circumcised him, the plastic surgeon used what was left to make him some.
    He’s expected to have normal sight when he’s older.
    The doctor only said he might be a little cockeyed.

  9. I’m thinking about shouting Mr Editor the new ACT support kit. It contains a small mat and a small framed photo of Dave with a candle holder built in. You unroll the mat and place it facing towards Wellington, next light the candle
    and put the picture of Dave in front of the mat. Next stand on the mat and look down. You will see these words printed on the mat – ‘Jack is not as good as his master.’ Next kneel and bow three times towards Dave and Wellington. Repeat once a day to show gratitude. I’m a firm believer in acknowledging our betters. Something Mr Editor is having a problem with at the moment.

  12. I must have missed a new poll. It seems Nat/ACT are miles over the 50% mark /// Well you would think it given this from Willis

    ” National’s finance spokeswoman Nicola Willis said she does not want to be in Government with NZ First, although she would if she has to.

    At the Herald’s Mood of the Boardroom debate in Auckland, Willis was asked whether another Provincial Growth Fund would be on the table in negotiations with NZ First to form a government.

    “I’m not going to get into that,” Willis said.

    “This is a really serious answer, and I think the people in this room need to hear it: I don’t want to go into Government with NZ First,” Willis said. “

    Police have seized more than $70 million worth of methamphetamine hidden in wheat thresher machines.

    “Police believe this haul of methamphetamine was destined for the New Zealand market and if it had not been intercepted it would have resulted in more than $200 million dollars’ worth of social harm caused across a lot of very vulnerable communities.”

    After the seizure, the machines were delivered to a rural property in Patumahoe on July 4, 2023.

    “Four men, aged between 18 and 28, were taken into custody at the property,” Gollan said.

    ACT is calling for the Government to open the inquiry into its COVID-19 response to public submissions to allow Kiwis to have their say on what’s being investigated.

    The Royal Commission should not be “politicised” or restricted in what it can investigate, ACT said.

  16. Smarter than Ma hooter
    —————
    Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has defended his decision to skip this week’s White House summit with the Pacific region’s leaders, saying he didn’t want to spend time hearing a “lecture” from President Joe Biden’s administration when he had more important concerns to deal with back home.

    “I am not to go and sit down at the meeting and listen to them lecture me,” Sogavare told reporters after returning to Honiara from the US on Wednesday.
    He added that he saw no benefit from attending a similar meeting last year, saying the talks are arranged to give each Pacific Islands leader three minutes to talk, “and then you go and listen to them lecture you about how good they are.”

        • This is my understanding. Peter Williams explains it well on RCR if you can find the clip.
          If the votes for the small parties tally 5% in total and say Notional get say 30% then National effectively get 30% of the 5% that doesn’t count ie another 1.5%. This is why Liarbour got just over 50% in 2020 but 65 seats not 60.

          Found the clip it is about 2 minutes in on the video on the page below.

          • I’ve heard similar explanations but I’ve never read anything that could be considered vaguely official to support the theory. Indeed from https://elections.nz/democracy-in-nz/what-is-new-zealands-system-of-government/how-are-mps-elected/

            ……”Electing parties into Parliament

            If a party gets at least 5% of the party vote or wins an electorate, we use the Sainte-Laguë formula to decide how many seats it gets.

            Each party gets a share of seats that’s close to its share of the party vote. For example, a party with 30% of the party vote gets about 36 seats – 30% of the 120 seats in Parliament.

            # Who gets a party’s seats

            A party’s seats first go to their candidates that won electorates. Any leftover seats go to candidates from the party list, in the order the party ranks them.

            For example, a party wins 30% of the party vote and 20 of their candidates win electorates. Twenty of their 36 seats go to the winning electorate candidates. The other 16 seats go to candidates from its party list. “…….

            So, no mention of what happens to votes for parties who fail to get an electorate MP or break the 5% barrier. I always thought that they were effectively dumped as ineffective & the official explanation tends to back this theory.

            If you find any written explanation to the contrary please link to it.

            Edit: I listened to William’s piece on your RCR link but it doesn’t make sense to me. There is no such thing as a :”reallocated” vote. All that happens is that the seats are allocated as if the only votes that mattered were cast for successful parties which is what happens. Regrettably the argument is “semantics” at best.

          • curious, the wasted vote gets divied up like that but its more treated as tho those votes werent counted.
            wasted vote on shitter parties like dnz etc has the exact same effect as not bothering voting at all.

            2

        • The votes that do not count i.e. no electorate seat , and under 5%
          get re-allocated out in proportion to the successful parties.

          This is where liebour scrapped over the 50% in 2020.

    Why are the doctors who promoted and performed for Big Pharma, complaining about heart and blood problems?

    Kevin Bass PhD MS
    @kevinnbass
    I had 2 Moderna vaccinations and a booster and was hospitalized for acute pericarditis last year. I was afraid for my life.

    The medical community minimized vaccine myopericarditis in young men early on. This we now know was a serious mistake.

    Back in those days, CDC would have still recommended further boosters for me, despite my pericarditis.

    Because I wasn’t insane, I didn’t get any additional shots. But some companies did mandate additional shots, based on CDC advice, even to men who experienced myopericarditis.

    Thankfully this advice has shifted. But this did not happen until after innumerable avoidable vaccine injuries to young men.

    ‘Not happy’ – Massive pothole causing havoc on Napier-Taupō road
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/09/29/not-happy-massive-pothole-causing-havoc-on-napier-taupo-road/
    A man living just down the road from the pothole in Te Haroto told RNZ he was helping motorists put on spare tyres from about 9pm on Thursday until 1.30am Friday.

    The road has been plagued with issues this year after being severely damaged during Cyclone Gabrielle, with more heavy rain slowing repairs.

    Triden Harris-Bush said there were about six holes within 100 metres on both sides of the road, and the worst was more than a metre long, half a metre wide and 25mm deep.

    “So far I’ve seen eight broken rims, and that’s just from the ones I was able to help,” he said.

    “I’ve hit it in my four-wheel-drive and had been chucked around. They filled the hole a month ago and since then it’s all come out and got worse.”

    ‘Net Zero | Pauline Hanson’s Please Explain’

    Although intended for Australian audiences, this week’s subject is strikingly-similar to what is going on in NZ, so is posted on that basis.

    Change the names of those portrayed in the cartoon and you effectively get exactly the same result; a definite obsession with a certain ‘Annette Zero’ by ALL NZ’s political parties.
