  1. This time next week we’ll either have a one day hangover or a three year hangover and nightmare, think about the consequences for our country if we awake to a labour Green Hori party coalition, YIKES, how old would you have to be to be to old to leave this emerging shithole country??
    BTW, “Redacted ” have named Cnutface Ardern as the creature fronting up the WEF / UN bid to control international media outlets and end free speech on the internet, the huge information gathering apparatus being built at Whenuapai airforce force base right now is front and center in that quest to muzzle Western populations, it’s happening ,its not a conspiracy theory anymore.

      • ha ha.. that lardo and heifer would have never gone 2 hours without food .

        Would even get up in the night to graze like a good heifer.

        that lardo will chow down so often, it wont even register.
        Like normal people breathing oxygen, the event wont register.

        Moving into silly name syndrome which is become a ‘crisis’ in recent times.

    • “The Government does not want us to become successful. I know I sound crazy right now, but they want us to struggle to make them richer.””

      For the past 6 years the government has been her government. Don’t blame colonialism for the failures of your government.
      If they cannot get ahead under liarbour and the billions they have received just for being Maori, then it’s going to be tougher in the near future.
      One has to ask where has all this money gone to?

She’s 21 FFS – what sort of life is she setting herself up for. Take some RESPONSIBILIY for your predicament and stop being a victim.

    • “Ive made sacrifices”??????? Not on food you haven’t Maori supporter.
      Miserable day here in Hamilton the fog is so thick, was not a nice walk this morning but the dogs don’t care about the fog.
      Oh dear another week to go well 6 days pleaseeeee be the quickest week on record I am so over this.
      Off to see the movie about the protests today at the Lido. A good start to nude nut and Davos Dave’s final week of campaiging. Good as they followed on with the WEF superstar and did not go and meet the protesters and I believe they are featured in the movie. FUCKERS. They could have met up with them, said I have been jabbed so am safe from the lot of you, If you believed that the jab was what was keeping you safe//////////// Obviously they didn’t. but no, bastards, the freedom of choice party act????? Never.
      Have a wonderful day people and be careful out there stabbings and shootings are common place now…..

  2. Hamas (not recognised as a terrorist organisation by NZ) launched unprecedented attack on Israel on major Jewish holiday. They will now get the shit kicked out of them by Israel, and somehow Israel will get blamed. I hope Israel goes ballistic on the bastards.

    • No problem, so long as there has been a 100 days of repealing much of the racist legislation & neutralized so as to have Zeroed out the Carbon ldiocy.
      A mini budget before Christmas, which will be the beginning of a new trend.
      Then call the snap election in the New Year.

      They want a 4 year term, so work for it. 🙂

    • Perhaps NZF (increasing) will outvote ACT (decreasing). Perhaps Media is just doing what it can to murky the waters.
      In Christchurch on Thursday, when you see the amount of houses/people around you realize that the few 1000’s on political blogs of all colours spending countless pages on arguing – persuading – demanding- who to vote for, – it doesn’t really matter – there are thousands out there who will vote on how they always vote anyway.

    • Winny went from his call of “No Jab, no Dole, no Parole” & found that he had no cut through.
      In less than 6 months the walkabout in the Wellington Protest.
      Has WP really said that the vaxxes were bad? or that just some parts a little problematic in some ways while pushing his empathy line.

      Then seeing the size & determination of the Convoy22 building in the Wellington Protest, as an astute, horse betting man easily figured, & could see that in positioning himself as a listener, a voice, the only voice that could gain traction.
      After all he only needed to harvest 5+% of the vote for WP & Shane Jones to gain seats in Parliament.

      The control will be strong by the “Waka Jumping Legislation” & how the media may stir some shit, but WP is skilled enough, that he knows he can get the media to shut down & present any dissenting candidate as it will align with the systemic media ideology.

      And so the all the Parties in Parliament still will Not say they have got anything wrong, as they play dodgems about setting a wide ranging Covid Commission of Inquiry.
      They know they may have to do it all again, under the auspices of the binding WHO Global Pandemic Treaty.

    • Dougal, it has surprised me the number of people in this country that seem to want a huge Maori influence and co-governance in their every day lives. And Labour will deliver that, should they get in.

      It also surprises me that there are a huge number of non thinkers in this country who have let the MSM manipulate them. And Labour has already delivered that with the funding and buying of the MSM.

      Labour have run the most negative Election Campaign in my long life, they have not given any clear path or plan to make New Zealand more prosperous or a better place to live for the future and I am at a loss to understand why a large percentage of the population think they will be good for this country, in the coming future.

      If, Labour, Greens and the Maori Party get in, wait for the 4 year Electoral cycle to be pushed, the public funding of Political Parties and a shit load of other jiggery pokery measures to ensure a Left Government continues well into the future.

      And people who voted early, in my humble opinion have not done them or the country any good service, for it now is too late to change their vote to ensure either a hung Parliament is avoided or a clear decision is made, on your above post, scenario.

    • And who created this situation ?

      Not the people on this blog
      Not the people The Standard
      Not the people on Waikanae Watch or Bob Jones Blog

      It was Comrade Colonel Chicken Kiev Seymour , honorary fighter in the Free Ukraine Army
      plus
      the god-bothering, bald shampoo salesman

      They did it.
      No-one else.

      luxon still does not understand media.
      He is a political bimbo.
      He thought he scored points when he savaged his own MPs Pugh, Hipango and O’Connor
      In fact he played into the hands of media scum who still don’t like him.
      What a dick. I mean because you literally look like a dickhead does not mean you should be one 😵

      He is easily manipulated which is why he is a puppet.
      The Karl Du Fresne article a couple, of weeks ago summed it up well.

      That is also why he will not deliver well on his erection promises.
      He jumps around trying to appease people .
      The notional party policies are a collection of appeasement bullet points rather than a cohesive strategy to lead and grow.
      luxon has a very low EQ -Emotional Quotient.
      He should not be in politics let alone as leader of the party that has been most in power in NZ for the last 70 years.

      Surely WEF and keys could have picked a better puppet.
      They (N/ACT) had about 48% of the vote, combined, 6 months ago.
      This is enough with the go nowhere votes like TOP and New conservatives.
      The go nowhere votes in 2020 were 225,000. That is about 7%. Enough to bring a party in over the 7%.
      Also enough to get the ‘nearly there’ over the line.

      It is also testament that MMP does not deliver in the BS way it was stated (was always a terrible thing) and STV is superior
      This is the vote total they (N/ACT) had approx in 2017. > 44.5 + .5 = 45% They still needed NZF then.
      N/ACT were looking good in February 2020 when the world changed. Mmmm, I wonder why.

      Early 2023 they were looking good.
      Now it is messy.
      It is like fourth form skool now with people declaring who their friends are; who they do not like.
      NACT blew their chance to get 48+ percent; then ride in on the over 200,000 go nowhere votes

      This is likely , at this point, to be like 1996 all over again
      We know what happened there.
      And Peters is vastly more experienced at this than he was in 1996; with far more pliable NZF MPs than the Maori scrum he had in 1996.

      Luxon has been in parliament less than one term as of today. Much of 2021 was the disgraceful lockdowns so he has, in effect less than 2 years actual parliamentary experience.
      Compare and contrast. Bob Hawke entered AU parliament in October1980. He was PM less than 2.5 years later in March 1983.
      Hawke was a people’s person, Intelligent, could read a room, experienced negotiator, Rhodes scholar and was PM for more than 8 years.
      luxon does not get a look in on that level.
      luxons deputy is Nicky Willis. Absoludely, she is no Paul Keating.

      Likely scenario, It will be a rerun of 1996. Is Nicky Willis the new Jenny Shipley ?

      • Good summary howitis.
        The only way NZ can get back on track is if the National Caucus roll roll Luxon BUT Willis and Bishop have to go at the same time. No use Willis taking Luxon’s place. Those 3 are the “wets” of the Nat Caucus.

      • They should have -as I have said previously – encouraged the growth of a right sided Party to soak up those 5-10% that who want to vote right, particularly the vaccine vote, such as Democracy NZ and had a like minded significant vote sitting cross bench supporting them.
        In a roundabout way they are going to get it as a number of “freedom” movement have found a home well up on the NZF Party list – ie Costello #3. The problem is that the leader Winnie will not be as manageable as Matt King would have been.

        • Indeed; but luxon is to busy trying to look like a cleanskin and being pure.
          Fits with his religious mania .

          Yes, had they seeded an umbrella party and ‘did an Epsom’ to get 4 or so seats that are ‘not notional’ they could have had a partner who would have been compliant.
          luxon is not pragmatic.
          He is a cork in the ocean- out of his league.
          There are a lot of people who simply don’t want to vote notional for a variety of good reasons .
          luxon is too myopic to see this. But he is not calling the shots, anyway.

          There is a poor collection of MPs with weak backgrounds
          This is a result of Notional with years of J Keys and Goodfellow with the low IQ , yappy wee davey farrar having way more input than his pinko, TDS intellect should ever allow.

          I mentioned the other day that their tax policy is shit.
          If you could even call it that.
          They have a motley crew on board. Compare to 2008 when there were a bunch of real world , qualified finance people who were MPs from the 2008 election.
          Now they have nobodies . Willis with English literature, churnalism, 4 kids and a stint at Fonterra, the latter of which would not give you any good skills .
          Get boosted Wet waffly Bishop with a couple of years bullshitting in PR. He is no better than Grant robbers son.

          Notional are stacked now with a bunch of Nick Smiths;
          Academically qualified wets with no practical experience to give back to the country .

        • The question unveiled is this.
          Do queer Religion of Peace believers leave home wearing a hijab?
          If that’s so how are they recognised?

          I read a piece from an Iranian recently that said that once at home behind closed doors all the same things happen as happen in other countries’ houses but that its just not public.

          This leads to the conclusion that Queer boys would wear hijabs when they step out the door.
          Do they have a sign of some sort?
          The girls, who would distinguish them from a normal woman except in Auckland?

        Agreed, and they would be able to justify their responses to both themselves and their fellow travellers. Noticeably (Although not unexpectedly) the international MSM’s silence is deafening, whereas had it been (Big, bad) Israel attacking Gaza, the shrieking would have been both loud and prolonged.

        It’s all about agendas.

    • Its hard to feel sorry for fukkers that bomb civilians with F16s then whine when they get the same treatment, I take no sides this is a religious war, always has been, personally i think that the Israel’s defense force will make of Gaza a desert and call that peace.
      Guess when you steal peoples land, kill their kids with snippers when they protest by chuckin, rocks, you reap what you sow, best stay outta this slaughter.
      The last time the IDF crossed into Gaza they run into hidden IEDs stashed every where, it was a pre planned ambush and was extremely effective, Hamas has grown into a very robust fighting force, The IDFs tank force has been exploited before in built up areas, suck im in to a built up area, then blow them up with IEDs and rocket attacks up the ass of the tank in the troop access doors.

      He agreed along with all the other Cabinet Ministers at the time.
      He must have because there is no record anywhere that show his dissent of the program while he was in Cabinet.
      He did what the bitch told him.

      Then when he sniffed the wind like a dog sniffing a bitch on heat he suddenly had a change of mind.

  3. An influential industrialist and his friend, a government minister, are at a reception.

    The industrialist asks his friend: “Can I ask you a favor?”

    “What can I do for you?” answers the minister and the industrialist continues:

    “It’s my youngest kid. He’s 27 now and still hanging around at college. Drinking and pranking with his no good buddies. Too lazy to even look for a job. Wouldn’t you be able to find something for him? ”

    “Sure!” answers the minister: “How about I make him assistant-secretary with a salary of 10000 dollars per month?”

    The industrialist: “That’s way too good for him. He has to learn to put some effort in it, you see?”

    “Then how about department head with a monthly pay of 6,000 dollars?” says the minister.

    “Still too good. He has to learn to appreciate money. What I want for him is to start at the bottom and receive a 1,500 dollar wage just like everyone else. It has to be the kind of job where you have to work hard to prove yourself before you get a raise or a promotion.” the industrialist explains.

    “Sorry!” says the minister: “In that case there is nothing I can do for you I’m afraid.”

    “Why not?” asks the surprised industrialist.

    “For such jobs you need to pass exams first.” the minister answers.

      • Christopher Luxon grilled by Northland residents on National working with Winston Peters

        NZ election 2023 live: Winston ‘hasn’t gone with National in 27 years’, Luxon warns

        https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/300984763/nz-election-2023-live-winston-hasnt-gone-with-national-in-27-years-luxon-warns

        National leader Christopher Luxon says he will find a way to work with Winston Peters as best as he can, if the public vote NZ First back into Parliament in a position where Luxon needs him to get into power.

        Talking to Quail Ridge Retirement Village resident Rhonda Blakie in Kerikeri, Luxon was asked about working with Peters.

        “It’s up to the New Zealand people to decide, the voter is never wrong. And if they decide that they’re putting them back in Parliament, then I will find a way to make that work as best as I possibly can.

        “But the real risk is he hasn’t gone with National in 27 years, and we all remember 2017.”

        He said his preference was a “strong, stable National government”, his second preference was to just work with ACT, and his third preference “and only then will I pick up the phone.

        Luxon added, “no guarantees” to his third preference.

        So fucking dumb this guy.
        What he should have said is that he could work with matt and DNZ. That would be enough to ditch Winston.
        He has no political radar stupid prick.

        • As Matt King said at a meeting, very early in the setting up, that the National Party do not want to do any business with an ex National Party Member of Parliament. ! !

          About time one got the hint and not be surprised or live on in that false hope, that even Matt King knows is simply not there from the start for any renegade National member. !
          Surely as an insider you knew that ! ! !

          That becomes an “If only …. …” and not only to be a DNZ whip, but seeming to be also a National Party whip???

          First whipping for DNZ seems to be actively bringing DNZ’s down fall.
          Others whipping for ACT are also seeing ACT’s downfall.
          As if they are the only true way, whilst rationalizing or seeming to sweep any major faults or problems under the carpet.

          Some mention going NZ1 but as soon as whipping starts, they also will go down.

          Perhaps voting for DNZ will be better than not voting.
          Perhaps voting for Brian Tamaki’s Freedom Party may be better, as he will still be more assuredly active, even afterwards, instead of not voting.

          Whether Seymour & Peters can coalesce on having a wide ranging Covid inquiry, that both seem to be in alignment, to hold against National in going in coalition.
          Even if that is achieved, & gotten underway, … great,
          Then call for a snap election.

            -Perhaps voting for DNZ will be better than not voting.
            >Disagree.
            It is not compulsory voting like Australia. To abstain is exercising your right.
            this phrase ‘you don’t vote you can’t complain ‘ is an old transgenders tale.

            -Perhaps voting for Brian Tamaki’s Freedom Party may be better, as he will still be more assuredly active, even afterwards, instead of not voting.
            >Agree. Some validity there. I have been to at least 4 of Tamaki’s sessions in the domain.
            He gets out there and is operating in the long haul. Had the courage of his convictions and went to prison on principle. I view this as a political prisoner.

            • Today at the river of freedom movie once Winston came on screen there was a huge cheer out to him. He had lots of supporters in the theatre today. Matt sorry to say no one said a word. Plenty of booing went on during the movie for dear leader, chippie, that greesy haired bastard, Luxon, Davos Dave and dr sir strange fucker.
              Good documentary I thought, sure shows the police in a very horrid absolutely disgraceful light.
              All in all it made me very angry as to what those people went through and what we non jabbers went through also. The problem is sorry guys and gals but some/most of the Europeans just take it up the ass and don’t do anything about it. Are we now so downtrodden?

          what is this dumbass luxtard luxon rambling about ?
          HE makes no decision.

          In near three decades of MMP (stoopid system) it has only ever been Winston Peters who decides who he goes with .
          This is whether NZF gets 7% or 13%
          Shows how naive this bimbo luxon is.

          Not the choice of the biggies.
          But the tiddlers that gets a bit over 5%. Duh. Fact.

          This is the stoopid MMP which that cunt Bolger pushed.

  5. Monica Lewinsky was walking on the beach when she found a lantern washed up on the shore. She started to rub it and out popped a genie. “Oh goodie, now I will get three wishes!” she exclaimed. “No,” said the genie, “You have been very bad this year, and because of this, I can only give you one wish.” “Let’s see,” says Monica, “I don’t need fame, because I have plenty of that due to all of the media coverage. And I don’t need money, because after I write my book, and do all my interviews, I’ll have all the money I could ever want. I would like to get rid of these love handles, though. Yes, that’s it, for my one wish, I would like my love handles removed.”
    Poof! And just like that……
    her ears were gone.

  6. Hamas is the biggest threat to the people of Palestine/Israel not the IDF. If they stopped attacking Israel they could have formed a one state nation by now, just as existed for thousands of years before, going back before jews and muslims were even invented.

    The attacks are pointless. They have no military or strategic purpose other than to ensure lots of innocents are killed on both sides. The people in Palestine are being used by Hamas and foreign muslim countries that offer them no practical assistance.

  7. Spare a thought for the Wairarapa elector faced with a smorgasbord of dropkicks & no-hopers to choose from as an electorate MP.

    No DNZ candidate, Raving Celia Wade Brown (GR), a newby but possible for ACT one Simon Casey, someone I’ve never heard of for NZ Loyal, Kieran McAnulty (LAB) & the invisible man standing for National. Then we have some headcase who goes by the name of Jared Warren Gardner (IND) who reckons:

    ……”I am running for election because I hope to bring the spirit (wairua) of truth (tika) and love (aroha) into government for governments is a gift of the spirit (wairua).”…………….”I shall be a suitable representative because my confession is that Jesus (Ihu) is the Christ (Karaiti), the Son of God, and the Lord, and he is come in the flesh, and also because my purpose is to serve others.”…….

    Fuck me loose! I’ll be tossing a coin between McAnulty & Casey.

      Tips for Wairarapians

      -Most Vampires die upon exposure to nightshade; stronger Vampires and Vampire-Corvinus Strain Hybrids are paralyzed instead.

      I was going to suggest a silver bullet for the buck toothed, gormless one, but Mr Google informs me that :-

      Q. Do silver bullets work against vampires?
      A. More importantly, though their range of effectiveness seems to have expanded over the years, silver bullets are traditionally used against werewolves, not vampires. Werewolves.
      For vampires you usually want to stake them through the heart.

      National Geographic has some tips
      https://blog.nationalgeographic.org/2010/02/22/six-ways-to-stop-a-vampire/

      NOT recommended for Nasska
      -Crucifix and Holy Water: “Any sort of religious symbol might deter a vampire,” Mark told me in an interview. “Magic circles. Churchyards. Holy ground.

      -Decapitate and Burn
      I believe this has has been successfully achieved in the Wairarapa with the 1992 killing of Lou Tawhai

      • ……”I believe this has has been successfully achieved in the Wairarapa with the 1992 killing of Lou Tawhai “……

        We Wairarapararians tend not to dwell on that case. The mad bitch tipped boiling water on the poor old bugger then castrated him before he died. Then she burnt the house down.

        Weird doesn’t begin to describe what went on.

        • It was a pretty weird time – right after Raymond Ratima.
          couple of weeks.

          later on the Saliel Aplin, and Olympia Jetson double murders (2001)
          Then Coral Ann Burrows a bit later.

          In the latter two cases the mother exposed their kids to extreme danger.
          But they get sympathy.
          These are the stories we hear about.
          How many suffer like that; don’t die; but are messed up fo life ?

          The Wairarapa was getting like Dunedin there for a while in the 1990s- early 2000s
          Cant ignore it.

          • Can’t ignore it & shouldn’t forget it. Events like that, especially when they involve kids, are beyond most peoples understanding. And you’re right…….countless kids may survive but be fucked up for life due to domestic violence & abuse.

            The killing of the wee Burrows girl really shook me as I knew her grandfather well & had met the other people involved casually. Stephen Williams was a jerk & a no-hoper but few thought him capable of that.

          • Horrific stuff.
            The Raymond Ratima one really got to me.
            That was hideous.
            all those kids. And he tried for more before being stopped.

            Oddly these vile mass murders all occurred under Jim Bolger. Weird alignment.
            From days after he became PM (Aramoana – 12 killed ) until just before he left office. Raurimu (6 killed )

            Ratima was 2 months after The Schlaepfer farm murders with 5 killed there plus the old guy self terminated.

              Which coincided with Jenny Shipley’s reign of terror as Health Minister 1993-96. She was the bitch who carried on Clarkula’s work of closing down mental hospitals the length & breadth of the country.

              The closing of beds along with the concept of under resourced “community care” resulted in misery & violence as the former patients became prison inmates.

        • “The mad bitch tipped boiling water on the poor old bugger then castrated him before he died. Then she burnt the house down.”

          So she was the victim then. Under NZ law and by popular opinion.

          Just like half choking little girls with cable ties, then smothering them one by one as the other choke in terror over what mummy is doing to them, makes you a victim. NOT THE LITTLE GIRLS.

  8. It is interesting observing the fetish that lifestyle block owners have with trees. Mainly ugly and boring ones that like to die and are unsuited to the environment. A particularly nasty trend is planting them in those horrible little cardboard things. It makes the place look like shit. They probably think they are saving the environment.

    • My favourite lifestylers are the mad, usually post menopausal women who advocate for trees everywhere so that their sheep can get shade. I’ve watched a few of them turn green as some poor cocky (like me) cleans out the maggots & rotting flesh around the arse of Tinkerbelle who spends afternoons with the blowflies clustered under the shade of the rotten willow in the bottom paddock.

      Second favourite are the ones who won’t use patent drenches preferring garlic juice or witchcraft to control the worms & who can’t understand why their wretched sheep are skinny & keep dying on them.

      • I wouldn’t have sheep. Love eating them but will leave it to the pros. I can’t see that they are worth it unless you have large numbers for economy of scale.

        Maybe Boer goats would be better and can also nibble back the blackberry, gorse and shitty trees the neighbours planted.

        • Goats are close relatives of sheep & are subject to many of the same problems unless you know what you’re doing. Start with self shedding sheep as the wool costs more to get off the sheep than it’s worth. Investing in some decent fencing thus allowing rotational grazing so that you can break the worm cycle is vital. Next cut down shade trees. Then suck up & drench at least twice a year.

          After that at least you can eat well instead of spending your weekends burying dead animals.

            What about just letting them run feral and have the whole place turn to shit? Wild animals don’t seem to have those issues. I would introduce introduced animals and them run rampant. Herds of feral chickens and flocks of deer 🙂

  9. At long last the movement towards better education has begun.
    Pick the best to teach.

    The rise of online schooling: Why it’s taken off and where to from here

    Online learning was thrust upon students around the country during the Covid lockdowns but now an increasing number of Kiwi kids are opting to do so.

    One principal says it’s “the beginning of a big change in education”.

    The Correspondence School, has seen enrolment numbers rise by more than 7000 students to 28,355 between 2018 and last year – with growth of more than 5000 in the past two years – and now provides almost all of its learning and teaching online.

  10. I apologise if this has already been posted, but it is well worth reading. Luxon wants a Minister of Space but where the hell is he going to get people to work in the industry, he hopes to develop, if this is what is happening in our “universities”.

    https://www.bassettbrashandhide.com/post/john-raine-david-lillis-and-peter-schwerdtfeger-universities-or-indoctrination-centres

    ” One recent example is the rejection of an MBIE Smart Ideas bid involving a senior Physics Professor where a main weakness was noted as follows:

    “There is minimal recognition of the contribution of Māori people, knowledge and resources. The project will not be co-led by Māori and does not currently include Māori team members. It is not clear how the outputs and outcomes of the proposed project will create impact for Māori.”

    This was a project in advanced theoretical and experimental physics where matauranga Māori was not relevant – consultation with local Iwi had been undertaken with the feedback that it had no direct relevance to Vision Mātauranga for this project in its current state. It is our understanding that funding applicants can justify not including Vision Mātauranga in a project, and it is oppressive and prejudicial that the funding rules are being interpreted to make Māori engagement mandatory. ”

    BTW I think Luxon’s idea is stupid. I’m all for the development of high tech industries but space, I don’t think so. Even rocket man’s company is essentially owned by the US interests now. Did NZ really benefit much from it?

  12. Watch the mental gymnastics of the leftists as Israel goes after Hamas. Their tired old cry of “Nazis” and “White Supremacists” are going to be an awkward fit. They will be working overtime trying to find ways to spin this into a far right conspiracy.

    The time has come for the Jews to take all of Gaza. I could write a book about how modern Israel is an absurd religious fantasy land. I’m not a fan. But the people responsible have largely gone and what is left are decent Israeli’s fighting to survive. Hamas is destroying both sides.

    Israel needs to get in there and take over the entire shithole. The world will piss and moan then do nothing.

  13. Another Covid hit for Labour as MP Deborah Russell tests positive

    Just one day before the Labour Party leader Chris Hipkins left Covid-19 isolation, another MP tested positive for the virus.

    Dr Deborah Russell, the Labour MP for New Lynn, revealed on Thursday she had come down with Covid-19 and would be staying home for the next few days to mitigate the risk of spreading the infection.

    Posting a picture of her positive RAT test on social media, Russell said she has been testing every day since her husband returned a positive test last Sunday.

    Oh dear how sad. Should have had the jab
    That would have kept covid away for election day.

  14. Scientists discover massive undersea reservoir near NZ’s biggest fault zone

    Scientists have found a massive reservoir lying just a few kilometres beneath the seafloor off the North Island – and it could help explain “silent” earthquakes thought to play an influential role in our largest fault zone.

    The discovery, made following recent seismic surveys and described in a just-published US study, marks the latest of a series of major new insights into the sprawling system that is our Hikurangi Subduction Zone.

    Lying off the North Island’s East Coast, it marks the boundary where the Pacific tectonic plate subducts, or dives underneath, the Australian tectonic plate.

    The constant mashing together of these two vast chunks of the planet’s crust produces an enormous amount of pent-up energy that must be somehow released.

  15. A very interesting piece from an ex UN bureaucrat now living in NZ. She doesn’t pull any punches.

    ” 3. Blanket repeal of all Labour legislation involving co-governance

    Since 2020, considerable legislation has passed (e.g. 3/10 Waters, the Maori Health Authority, the RMA acts, elements of Local Government arrangements and, just a few days ago, Bills for co-governed marine reserves in the South Island (gazetted only as Parliament has already risen). Veto power – aka prior consent, final review, permanent monitoring, te mana o te wai clauses – is embedded in these laws.

    All such legislation – not just the major laws – should be repealed as they contain radically new governance arrangements which have not been approval by citizens. ”

  16. Winston Peters has hit back at National’s latest advertising campaign aimed at scaring people off voting for his New Zealand First party.

    At a campaign meeting in Masterton today, he said suggestions in a story – quoting National’s campaign manager Chris Bishop – that there could be a second election were “a lie”.

    He held up National’s ads in the Herald on Sunday and Sunday Star Times which promoted the notion of there being no clear election winner, eight weeks of coalitions talks and a stalled economy.

    He said the suggestion of eight weeks of coalition talks was “dirt”.

    Winston Peters has hit back at National’s latest advertising campaign aimed at scaring people off voting for his New Zealand First party.
    Decided to copy over the complete article so the when whingers who won’t pay for others work can have a read.
    See him swanning around in the past and his Answers to John ansell of Cossack Fame.

    Read away and don’t forget your rose tinted glasses.

    At a campaign meeting in Masterton today, he said suggestions in a story – quoting National’s campaign manager Chris Bishop – that there could be a second election were “a lie”.

    He held up National’s ads in the Herald on Sunday and Sunday Star Times which promoted the notion of there being no clear election winner, eight weeks of coalitions talks and a stalled economy.

    He said the suggestion of eight weeks of coalition talks was “dirt”.

    “The last talks I was involved in, it took 11 days after we found out the special vote result.

    “This is scaremongering … the economy doesn’t stall while you are having talks …”

    “That is bovine scatology.”

    “It is a slight,” he said later. “It is a mistruth, but sadly, we just have to get on with the job and keep going. We are not going to be derailed by that sort of talk because people can work out that it’s a lie.”

    He railed against the news media, with specific references made to Herald on Sunday columnist Liam Dann, his brother and RNZ Morning Report host Corin Dann, RNZ political editor Jane Patterson, Q&A host Jack Tame, Newshub Nation host Rebecca Wright, Stuff journalist Andrea Vance and Post editor Tracy Watkins.

    He said he would hold a commission of inquiry into the mainstream news media if he was elected – his party has set up a petition for such a commission and is just shy of 5000 signatures.

    He mocked the campaign coverage of photo opportunities of National’s Christopher Luxon driving a tractor and Chris Hipkins gorging himself on sausage rolls, pies and icecream up and down the country.

    That meant they weren’t covering real issues such as crime and what a mess Pharmac was in. He said the media was fill of “compliant leftist shills”.

    He also wrongly claimed that the media never turned up to cover his meetings.

    Peters was 20 minutes late for the meeting, but the audience was forgiving when he told them why.

    “Sorry for being late, but you have got some of the slowest roads in the country,” he said.

    Previous speed limits of 100km/h from the south have been cut to 80km/h and, in some parts, 70km/h.

    Peters took a rough guess and suggested the new limits had been imposed without consultation.

    “We were consulted, but we were ignored,” one man responded.

    Peters took the audience of about 200 on a tour of the history of New Zealand politics, starting with a four-minute video that touched on the Māori loans affair of the 1980s, the Winebox inquiry of the 1990s, the SuperGold card from his time in government with Helen Clark, and 1800 extra police officers from the coalition with Labour.

    He reminded them of his role in the electoral petition in 1987, in which Labour’s Reg Boorman (nicknamed landslide Reg) had his one-vote majority overturned for Wyatt Creech.

    He made frequent references to opposing racist and separatist policies.

    He had one view on the Treaty of Waitangi, and as Dame Whina Cooper had said at the Commonwealth Games in 1990: “We signed the Treaty because we wanted to become one people.”

    “That’s our aim. That’s the objective and we are not going to compromise on this, and we are going to stare down people who call us racists and call them the very words that they themselves are.”

    “They are racists. They are for apartheid, and they need to be confronted and stopped in this campaign.”

    As he left the Copthorne Hotel where the meeting was held, he was confronted by former National-Act ad man John Ansell (the ‘Iwi-Kiwi’ billboards of 2005) over a 2017 election policy to hold a referendum on Māori seats.

    “You lied to my face about the binding referendum [being a] bottom-line coalition condition in 2017. How do you expect them to believe …

    Peters: “Listen sunshine, naff off. Naff off. Don’t tell me I tell lies.”

    Ansell: “You told lies. You broke that promise.”

    Peters: “Naff off. Run along.”

    Ansell: “Your promises have about as much integrity as a plate at a Greek wedding.”

    He said Peters had pledged that a referendum would be a bottom line, but reneged on contact with former Prime Minister Dame Jacinda Ardern.

    “And he expects us to believe his bulls*** now.”

    Bad idea lads 🙂

    Around 25% of Israel is made up of Arabs. Conservative Muslims and Orthodox Jews agree on many social issues and make up a core of support for Netanyahu. In most of the world most of the time – Jews and Muslims get on fine.

    Those of us who are not religious fanatics understand Palestine was invented at the same time Israel was a few decades ago. Primitive and disgusting bronze age desert cults are not a source of history or morality.
