  1. A returned 501 that may become the new tradition for returnees?
    A couple with 4 children being sent back to New Zealand.

    …… conned banks into loaning them more than $9 million which they then used to develop a significant property portfolio.
    But after being caught, they were both jailed and have now been banished to New Zealand.

    Would seem this couple would help a long suffering land lords in development schemes 🙂
    MH ;— interested? the deal for you 🙂

    Does New Zealand need more of this intrepid entrepreneurial ship?

    • Tainui and others are well into that behaviour.
      the difference is that its the bank of the taxpayer.

      Still if they finished up with a lot more assets than loans the bank shouldn’t complain if they got their money back. Must have done something wrong.
      Banks know that 80% of you borrowers do the same.
      Yes you do, you fudge things like your ourgoings and your incomes, the value of other stuff you own and so on.

      Once you have some assets though they look at you a lot more critically.

    • AWWWW I wanted photos of the two, if you can con banks into lending you $9 million I would have thought that would have warranted at least photos of the parents and maybe photos of the kids as well/////////
      Good morning everyone, only another 2 days till election day and we will learn who is going to clamp down on us this year and for the next 3. I can hardly wait for the time when we are placed under lock down again, unjabbed to be excluded from everything, rat tests for travelling to dorkland, avoid your neighbours at all costs, all that crap again and it doesn’t matter who is in power that is what I expect from the bastards at the trough for the next three years. Anyone feeling slightly more optimistic???????
      Have a good day and be careful out there.

  2. We wonder why voting is piss poor.I got my easy vote card out and looked up where to vote.
    It seems most places are not open before 10.30 and some 12.00 noon. Most close 4.00 -4.30pm.
    Now the bene’s can get out in that time. Working people have no chance and shift workers have no chance.

    Bloody disgrace IMHO.
    The only ones open for longer are in Malls and fuck them I don’t go there.

    The sooner we have online the sooner we will get real voting.with eye and facial recognition and a bit more this could be done.
    Your face is like a number plate. The police can find that anywhere you go these days.
    Same with facial recognition.
    No point in denying or arguing against this it is already well entrenched and in many supermarkets already.
    It’s unstoppable IMHO despite all the whinging.
    sooner the better.
    Do nothing wrong and nothing to fear.

    FEAR. = False Evidence Appearing Real.

    Now the stupid pratt from southland has already vented his spleen over this so he will be back with his backwoods know how.

    • you added a few more words to it this time to give more legitimacy and integrity.
      do nothing wrong have nothing to fear…. you realise youre talking about power hungry govt, if we get to a point of every citizen in facial/eye recognition then it sounds like a social credit system ole chap.
      you know how that would work right?
      all that wrong think you post to facefart would deem you ineligible to vote… and get groceries, have electricity etc 🙂

      use that brain a lil more and think about consequences not just benefits, youre doing labour party thinking.

      • Whatever you think is right will be right in your head.

        That doesn’t make it right.

        The world is much bigger than you and there are forces at work that you can either harness and tame or ignore and they will rule you.
        Much like a horse.
        Technology is there to be harnessed and to be used for the better. Conversely, it can be used for evil.
        Ignoring both is foolish.
        Ignoring the benefits is even more so.

        down on the farm between your carrot tops doesn’t make you an expert in anything technical.

        Safety in these things comes from innovation and democracy. ( we have good IT companies here who do this stuff if only we would stop buying crap stuff from oversea’s.)

        But then I get you can’t make the link between the two.
        So simply in a proper democracy the rules are made by that democracy and if that democracy is what it should be and transparent then the rules they make will encompass the rights to the freedoms we should enjoy and the enforcement of those rights.
        Anything else is not democracy but what we currently have.

      Stop sniffing the curtain cleaner
      nothing changed in between

      On line voting is easily subject to manipulation
      paper based votes have a literal paper trail and physical presence.
      can be tampered with; but there is better verifiability

      the fact he yanks did it in 2020 is what they have been doing in other countries for over 50 years
      We know they did it; they know we know
      THEY don’t care.

    • Viking,

      Who would have thought that elections could be rigged / Skewed?

      Online voting is easy to rig.

      “Anything in the Cloud will be hacked. It is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when, and how often.”

      There is a reason why ex directors of the NSA tell people in interviews not to use the Cloud. Or what top CEOs of Big Tech keep all their IP on paper in a safe, and nowhere near a computer. Same scenario as the head of Pfizer or govt officials around not getting vaccinated, or getting a theatrical saline shot. They know the risks.

      • Life is a risk and as we go along this track it systems will get more and more protected.
        You can hardly claim that our elections for the last 80 years have been fair and proper because they have ll been subject to some type of interference. even the last one.
        That interference comes in many forms from bribery to mass signs in the prisons to crating local issues that favour a candidate to voting for others, voting for others, herding the votes in retirement homes by labour supporters,etc etc etc.
        What’s the difference?

    • It is sort of obvious in having so much “early voting” for some weeks, that the “budget” meant other costs had to be trimmed, like hours of other polling booths to be drastically reduced.

      After all rural areas do not harvest enough votes, to be worth an hour or 2 of opening,
      How convenient //

      If we end up with the wiz of online voting, then it will be wonderful to extend the voting to the “month of the vote”.
      Note how a “special day”, gets extended into a “special week” or 2 as has happened.
      Since voting is so important, the upgrade to the “month of the vote” would not be surprising.

      Especially that in this wonderful digital age, all the 16+ year olds can synchronize their votes after a class room lesson.

      Safe guards ? like the bank telling all the real-estate agents your lowest & highest possible price on buying or selling a property. …. Hmmm ….

      Or is your vote only worth a “collective” digital nothing.
      Send the KFC bucket over there, as a receipt 🙂

  4. Regardless of what happens in the upcoming election there should be an enquiry into how much influence the MSM has had on the result and how much money they have been given during the campaign. One news last night was pretty much an ad for Labour and an explanation of why Nationals voters are deserting all based on one poll. Their job is supposed to be to report what is happening not manufacture the story they and their pay masses want to hear.

    • T, if you think TV1 was an advertisement for the Labour Party, Newshub had Jenna Lynch fair frothing at the bung and was totally overjoyed at the perceived slide for National and ACT in Newshub’s rigged and manipulated Poll.

      Honestly, the wet patch under where she was standing during the news was almost a heath and safety issue which Newshub’s Health and Safety Officer was remiss in not immediately addressing..

      Whatever, come Saturday night, I guess her glee may not be so evident at the end of the night. That alone will be worth watching.

      Although the NZMSM’s supposed task is ‘…To report what is happening not manufacture the story they and their pay masses want to hear’, He who pays the piper always calls the tune’, with the result being, of course that there is now no such thing as a ‘Free’ MSM in New Zealand.

      They would, of course, have us believe otherwise…

As for stuffed, surely they must be trading while insolvent at the very least. Cut the funding and watch them all crash and burn.

        • God-bothering Kluxon is too feeble for that.
          He will bluster and do what he is told.

          In 2013 globalist shill, J key, had the opportunity to flog off teevee one with Air NZ and the power companies.
          He folded.
          Because he was told to.
          Now he will tell his boy Kluxon to not flog off this rotting, maggot-filled carcass.

          teevee three has not ben in profit since at least 2008.
          It is a well used bitch that gets passed around.
          At present its abuser is Discovery, part of the dodgy Warner group.
          The losses it makes is small beer to them to wear, for spreading the fake gnews and rotting peoples brains with… I guess it s still there..MAFS and other non reality junk.
          Deliberate degradation.

          When I looked into it in 2017 teevee three was getting 20 million a year from NZ on air (for a 100% overseas owned outfit then, taxpayer subsidy) and still making a ten mill loss on about 130 mill turnover.

      Help?

      I stopped watching teevee so called gnews when I was a schoolkid.
      It was rubbish then.
      It is just packed with lies and silly adverts; these in the last 3 years I imagine these have been pure propaganda .
      WHY
      Just why?

      I note a lot of comments in BFD, when I saunter over there, is angry reactions to te gnews on teevee
      So why do they even bother ?
      It is a mystery to me .
      I mean 30 years ago, maybe , but now with the internet and full choice….

      I did follow some of the gulf war in 1990 /91 as I had just purchased a tv unit- for Sky tv
      It was my first look into CNN. I saw how manipulative it was even then.

    • It has no influence on me, don’t watch it. We will never reform media to make it safe. It has been biased forever, the internet just reveals quickly. It used to take decades to reveal the Big Lies, now it takes days, or even hours. As “they” lost control of media propaganda they tried to control it even more. It fails, slowly at first then all at once.

  6. Ok everybody – as “they” say – todays conspiracy theory is tomorrows fact.
    Here is a 10 minute one (play at 1.25 to speed up and skip the ad) about the Hamas attack and that it was allowed to happen.
    The interesting thing to me was the apparent former Israel intelligence officer who states there was no way the attack could happen undetected, a cat cannot move against the fence without triggering the alarms – along with the fact that Egypt warned them something was brewing. The other interesting thing was footage used showing a building collapsing – the media building – was from a couple of years ago. We have seen that kind of “reporting” quite often over the years. Last night someone posted that the 40 beheaded babies story was not adding up and the Israel Army was stepping back from it.
    Anyway – fill your boots. a friend sent me this from Britain.

  7. I hear on NewstalkZB that “our Government” is looking at working closely with Australia to get aid to Gaza.

    Why? These Palestinians have bought his on themselves. The people in Gaza have supported Hamas and not risen up to drive them out.

    To me, they should fall into line and become civilised and get assistance or remain barbaric and fend for themselves.

    I do not want my Taxes going towards assisting barbarians.

    • How much aid is coming from the Muslim world?

      Have the Muslims set up a refugee camp for people to shelter in on the Egyptian border?

      More aid comes from the Jews than the Muslims, unless you call weapons aid.

      23 Sep 2022 : …. The NZ UNWRA announcement comes just days after the United States House of Foreign Affairs Committee unanimously supported the Peace and Tolerance in Palestinian Education Act, which draws attention to the glorification of terror and hate taught in UNRWA schools. ….

      ….. Chief Human Rights Commissioner, Paul Hunt, has said “NZ’s international human rights obligations do not stop where its territorial sea ends…
      If NZ taxpayer funds are being used to publish antisemitic textbooks, this would place NZ in breach of its international human rights obligations.”….

      https://www.thedailyexaminer.co.nz/nz-announces-funding-for-glorification-of-terror/

      Even NZ’s dud Human Rights Commissioner could see something was very wrong, seeing that there was full on indoctrination.

      As Aotearoa is an occupied land, so is Palestine. 🙁
      Where Hamas was voted in at Gaza, where billions in aid went, to help in health, education, & culture, that is the “kindness & wellbeing” culture to achieve the greatest democracy & peace. //

      Yet it seems that now that NZ is back pedaling from what it helped set up.
      Where first we need to look after our own citizens..

  8. This from Simon Black at Sovereign Man.
    October 11, 2023
    Like most people, I’ve been closely following what’s been going on in Israel and Gaza since Saturday’s attack.
    Most of our readers know that I’m a former intelligence officer; while it seems like a lifetime ago, those instincts never leave. And as I’m shaking my head in disgust at what’s happened, I also can’t help but notice a number of peculiarities that just don’t add up.
    First, it’s bizarre… almost suspicious… just how poorly trained the Hamas fighters are. As I watch videos of the gunmen, they demonstrate a distinct lack of even basic firearms proficiency.
    They have limited trigger discipline. They wave their weapons around like children playing with toy guns. They shoot one-handed as if they learned marksmanship from watching Rambo.
    Plus their small unit tactics are pitiful; they don’t know how to move and fight as a unit or how to clear buildings. They don’t even know basic hand and arm signals.
    There also don’t seem to be any tactical or strategic objectives. In warfare, opposing sides seek to achieve clear goals– destroy high value targets, disrupt lines of communication, neutralize enemy units, secure key terrain, etc.
    But there’s been none of that so far from Hamas.
    This weekend’s attack had obviously been in the works for several months, with significant external support from Iran.
    Yet it appears that all of the meticulous planning went into logistics, finance, smuggling, and cross-border coordination. Zero planning went into figuring out the actual mission… let alone training the fighters for combat.
    It’s as if Hamas and their allies in Iran thought about every tiny detail about the attack… except for the attack itself. Instead they just rounded up a bunch of angry teenagers, put weapons in their hands, and told them to go murder civilians while screaming “Allahu Akbar”.
    Now, it’s not unusual for terrorists to be poorly trained. When I was in the military, we saw so many reports of bomb makers accidentally blowing themselves up, or fighters literally shooting themselves in the foot, that my colleagues and I euphemistically referred to them as “stupid terrorists”.
    It’s also not unusual for a terrorist group to lack achievable objectives; some people just want the world to burn, and anyone attracted to such a vocation is typically lacking in intellect and strategic vision.
    But this isn’t an ordinary terrorist organization. This attack was essentially from a sovereign government. And it’s frankly strange that they would take such a big swing without thinking through the basics.
    Another point that doesn’t add up is America’s role.
    Much has already been written about the Biden administration’s culpability in this attack, including the humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan that weakened America’s standing in the world, as well as abandoning tens of billions of dollars in military equipment to the Taliban.
    Then of course there was that small matter of releasing $6 billion to Iran in exchange for five US hostages (at least three of whom were also Iranian nationals).
    Well, Mr. Biden himself announced that at least 14 US citizens have been killed by Hamas. At least 20 US citizens are missing in Israel and suspected to have been kidnapped by Hamas.
    So where is their $6 billion? What was so special about those Iranian-Americans that the United States government (which laughably insists they ‘do not negotiate with terrorists’) allowed Iran to pocket $6 billion in frozen cash to release them?
    Don’t misunderstand– I’m not advocating for paying Hamas to get the American hostages out. Quite the opposite. In my mind, you don’t negotiate with terrorists. You neutralize them. Especially when said terrorists are sloppy, emotional, poorly-trained cowards.
    But that’s not the point. I’m just trying to understand the logic. Why pay $6 billion for some Americans, but nothing for other Americans? For that matter, why do a costly, one-sided prisoner exchange with Russia for a WNBA player, but don’t do the same to secure the release of Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich (who has been unjustly held in Russia for more than six months)?
    What is the President’s logic?
    Sorry I almost threw up in my mouth a little bit. I apologize for suggesting the man has any logic at all.
    Bizarrely, the Pentagon– presumably under the President’s direction– went to the trouble to announce that a rescue mission “is not off the table”. What does that even mean? If you’re going to rescue people, you go and do it. You don’t say you might do it. Or that doing it “is not off the table”. You just go and do it, while you still have the initiative and element of surprise.
    Saying you might send your Special Operations Forces on a rescue mission either tips off the enemy, or proves you are full of hot air… thus weakening your position even further. Talk about a bonehead move.
    (In completely unrelated news, the Pentagon also recently announced that it was slashing its Special Operations Forces. But hey, at least the Navy has plenty of drag queens now.)
    A final point that doesn’t add up is what the media is calling an “intelligence failure” on the part of the Israelis. Come on. That’s a colossal understatement at best.
    Mossad (Israeli intelligence) has agents and operatives all over the world. They have countless resources in Gaza. They have people in Iran. They have assets at luxury hotels in key cities like Beirut, Cairo, and Dubai, all to keep tabs on high profile guests and meetings that take place.
    So it’s hard to believe that they were caught off-guard and had no idea that this attack was being planned for months.
    They completely missed the smuggling operation that brought an arsenal of weaponry into Gaza. They missed the multiple meetings that took place over the past few months in Beirut between Hamas leaders and senior Iranian officials.
    And these weren’t even secret meetings; they took place in broad daylight and included some of Iran’s top military commanders and even the country’s foreign minister.
    It’s not just Mossad; plenty of nations’ intelligence agencies (including in the United States) keep close tabs on Hamas and Iran. The CIA has a whole division dedicated to Iran. Yet apparently everyone missed it.
    Additionally, it’s worth noting that, despite the mountain of bureaucracy and compliance now required in the global banking system, everyone also missed the river of money that funded Hamas’s operation.
    This is mind boggling; laws like FATCA, CRS, and the USA PATRIOT Act were supposedly passed, at least in part, to cut off terrorist groups from the global financial system.
    Banking has become so cumbersome that the rest of us ordinary, law-abiding citizens have to suffer ridiculous paperwork and compliance just to conduct routine financial transactions.
    Your bank will treat you like a criminal if you withdraw $5,000 in physical cash.
    Yet Iran– a nation that has been blacklisted by the global financial system– has been able to send hundreds of millions of dollars to Hamas– a blacklisted terrorist organization.
    This is not a simple ‘intelligence failure’. The ‘experts’ missed it. And the systems they designed failed miserably.
    At best, this was a catastrophic breakdown of an entire system that was put in place worldwide to prevent the very thing that just happened this weekend.

      • NZ supports the CIA
        They have interfered in the elections of more than 60% of the countries of the world including the the Whitlam Govt in Australia.

        They have spear headed the wars against Muslim countries over the last 30 years on behalf of Israel . These countries include Afghanistan (looking for a man in a cave, we are told, US stayed there 10 years after we are told they killed the man formerly living in a cave) ; Iraq; Libya, Syria
        In addition but not so headline is Yemen ; and mass US bombing of civilians in Pakistan (Paki is friendly with China; and we are told was harbouring Mr. Bin La.;.den ) ; Somalia where they were so embarrassed that a Movie was made about it and they bomb the shit out of incl civilians ; but if the Somalians hijack a boat , THEY are the bad guys…. and they make a movie about that.
        I dont care much for Somalians -lots of them in Mt Roskill – but don’t think it is correct to blow the shit out of them.

        When you draw up a list of saints and sinners (hint, there are few saints) remember where to place the CIA, the FBI, The Pentagon, the DOD and the rest of the Swamp.

        One mans terr/%or..ist is another mans freedom fighter.
        I don’t see the See Eye Aye as freedom fighters.

      Gaza received a lot of aid, through those years, to develop, but it seems the government only did the bare minimum for its people.
      Of course the Aotearoa aid was most welcome to educate the children.

    • It is hard to figure,
      Like North Korea is supposed to have full sanctions applied to it.

      I have been listening to the Lazarus Affair, & now into Series 2
      It now shows that the more sanctions applied,
      at first it slows things but then an even better system that is even more undercover,
      that adapts & evolves, knowing it must be hidden much more.
      This is what it the series are based on.

    • ”Your bank will treat you like a criminal if you withdraw $5,000 in physical cash.”

      I withdrew five grand from ANZ. No problem there. That’s my bank. But when I tried to deposit it at ASB bank, you would think I was sending money to Iran. The cash had an official ANZ band around it. I was reasonably well dressed, The manager was called. One of the notes was pulled out and held to the light to check the water mark. The manager said they had to check because five thousand is a large amount of money. I said ” no it’s not” I have been behind people in my own bank who have deposited way more. I said maybe it’s a lot of money for people like me to have? The teller piped up and said we have to follow the law. As far as I know, in NZ, the red flag isn’t raised unless the amount is above $10.000 domestic, and $1000 international.
      The authorities hate cash… it spells freedom and privacy…and we can’t have that.

  11. While I’m waiting for my elevation to Emperor of Aotearoa and expected beatification this weekend I’m in the grand final of the real super hard blokes competition. To get to this stage you have to do all the normal things, drink a keg before breakfast, wrestle a few crocodiles, sleep with the pink whale and Chloe and the Persian rug (so I can tell Saggy how great she is), quell a few revolutions, satisfy several nympho’s, and do 10 rounds with Mrs Mugabe. The final on Saturday is going to be the ultimate challenge. I have to watch the One News coverage of the election starring John Campbell, Jessica way to fucking Much Mc Kay and that gay bar loiterer Jack Tame in it’s entirety. I don’t know if I’m up to this, I’ve been practicing hard, I’ve done everything horrible known to modern man but I feel this may be a step to far even for me.

    A man walks into the bar – he sits down and orders a drink. Ted gives him his drink, accompanied by a bowl of peanuts.
    To his surprise, a voice comes from the peanut bowl.
    “You look great tonight!” it said, “You really look fantastic…. and that aftershave is just wonderful!”
    The man is obviously a little confused, but tries to ignore it.
    Realising he has no cigarettes he wanders over to the cigarette machine. After inserting his money, another voice emits from the machine.
    “You WANKER……Oh my god you STINK……….Do you know, you’re almost as ugly as your’ mother.”
    By now, the man is extremely perplexed. He turns to Ted for an explanation.
    “Ah yes sir,” Ted responds, “The peanuts are
    complimentary, but the cigarette machine is out of order.”

      • Madeleine Albright: killing half a million Iraqi children was worth it!

        over ten years.
        US had sanctions against Iraq for getting medicine and anti biotics.
        Affected everyone. In ten years, directly because of US sanctions; 500,000 children died and others lived with reduced quality life.

        This was not good enough for the yanks .
        A couple of years after this interview, US went after Iraq again for more mass slaughter of the Semite people.
        S Hussein was eliminated.
        S Hussein used to make short work of terr/#ori..sts.
        After he was hanged without a proper trial in the early hours one morning the terr/#ori..sts multiplied incl. a group created by US to destabilise the region,

        Madeleine Albright: a jewess.
        From eastern Europe
        Her ancestors were religious converts.
        She is not a Semite but is jew by religious conversion.
        This east European born person had No right to any middle east territory.

        Killing half a million kids and gloating about it was her gig.
        Of course, did not gloat as much as Killary did about killing S Hussein who kept the terr/#ori..sts out of the region.

        The real terr/#ori..sts were/are the USA.
        They have killed more people via their evil than Stalin. since 1970.

    He says in a televised address that Israel is now on the attack.

    “Every member of Hamas is a dead man,” he adds.

    What Hamas carried out was worse than the Islamic State, he says, recounting evidence that they beheaded people, raped women, burned people alive.

        • Stop telling lies
          Investigators believe the blaze was started when a diesel car, thought to be a Range Rover, suffered an electrical fault or leaking fuel line.

          The fire then spread as a number of electric vehicles burst into flames in a domino effect, one firefighter suggested. As many as 1,500 vehicles are feared to have been damaged as a result of the collapse in the car park, which has a capacity of 1,900.

          Up to 50,000 passengers are suffering disruption at the airport, which only reopened at 3pm this afternoon, with more than 140 flights cancelled. Most flights are now back on but many are delayed.

          Today, an airport worker – who asked to remain anonymous – said the fire would continue to ‘majorly’ impact services in the coming days, reports The Telegraph.

          Dramatic footage on CCTV captured the moment the Range Rover caught fire, bringing light fixtures down from the ceiling before a fireball soared through the building. The vehicle appears to be in the middle of the road used to get around the car park, rather than a designated space.

      • I did wonder if the catalytic exhaust to clean the emissions gets too hot.

        On my diesel I am told if that light comes on,
        I am suppose to leave the engine on, but not parked at idle,
        but to give it a good run to burn out gunk in its self cleaning way.
        Seems like about good 30 kilometres of travel before the light goes off.
        It actually gets very very hot.

        … Catalytic converters usually run at 1200 to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit.
        An overheated converter turns bright red and becomes hotter than 2000 degrees Fahrenheit!
        This is dangerous for a number of reasons. If you have any concerns with your converter, bring it to an ASE-certified mechanic as soon as possible.3/07/2021

        https://ferberstireandauto.com/why-does-my-catalytic-converter-overheat/#:~:text=Catalytic%20converters%20usually%20run%20at,mechanic%20as%20soon%20as%20possible.

        Maybe the electrical fault was that little dashboard light went off too soon,
        so the driver parked up with that overheated converter
        or idling along looking for a park.

        Remember this is a very “save the planet” regulatory requirement 🙁

        • DPF’s are slightly different to catalytic converters.
          One for petrol one for diesel.
          Both are usually surrounded with heat shields.
          DPF’s block for a number of reasons and both systems have what is called a regen, which is a program where they inject extra fuel to burn and clean out the filters .
          With DPF’s they often block if the engine is not used much or not run at a sufficient speed for the regen to work. for example A car that toddles along the road for a few miles to a workplace and back again at night at a slow speed as around town. BMW says it needs 40 minutes at 80+KPH.
          Once the blockage starts its hard to remove by running the car.

          They can block if the oil gets in there from mechanical reasons and if the injectors are set incorrectly ot one doesn’t work leaving deisli to go down the exhaust.
          Occasionally you can have one where the sensors fail.
          Once the light comes on and you get the go home mode you have a problem. If the pressures are too high and it won’t regen thenthe DPF is probably blocked.
          We have a large ultra sonic cleaner that we use to clean them .
          We have done 3 in the last few days.
          Range in size from bus down to Mazda van , Mercedes and BMW and Ford Ranger. Tractors and diggers.

    There is no rehabilitation, if you want to live in a society not filled with hate and vengeance, these people have to be neutralised. giving money to Hamas just buys more hatred and vile behaviour. The Left can bleat all they like but these people are indisciminate butchers.

      All of the of the polling booth have a full understanding of the Treaty in principles of culture.

      Another way to cut the rural to balance the budget of increased expenditure elsewhere, while figuring many of the early voters are probably die heart Labour, Maori & Greens.

      So what if a rural voter wants to much more that may be revealed, to make a decision right up to Saturday.

              …….”From 1853 to 1879 general elections took place over a period of weeks or months. As many members were returned unopposed in these years, the range of dates given covers both nomination day and (where required) the day of polling. From 1881 a single day was specified for voting in all general (European) seats, although Māori voting was held on a different day. Since 1951 elections in general and Māori seats have taken place on the same day, and always on a Saturday.”…….

              And a couple of extra titbits of info from the article:

              …….”The New Zealand Parliament was alarmed by reports of electoral abuses in Auckland in the 1850s. It decided that electoral laws needed to be tightened, and in 1858 passed a series of reform acts, which defined and prohibited treating, bribery and exercising ‘undue influence’ over electors. Candidates were banned from employing musicians and displaying banners. The placement of committee rooms and polling booths in public hotels was also outlawed.”……..

              …….”instead of the secret ballot, in 1858 Parliament introduced a new verbal voting system. Each elector was required to state the name of the candidate he wished to vote for out loud to the polling official. The official would then record the vote in a poll book, and the elector would sign his name alongside the entry.

              This method, its supporters claimed, would at least require the elector to be sober enough to speak.”…….

    This will not be the first time the Israelis have done this. After the 1972 Massacre at the Munich Olympics, Golda Meir instructed the Mossad to punish every one of the people who organised and carried out the murders in Munich. This the Mossad did within about 13 months and got everyone, to a man. The Mossad got them in Lillehammer, Algeria, London, France, just wherever the Arab hid.

    George Jonas wrote a great book on this in 1984, if you can get it, it is a superb, true yarn.

    A reasonable article picking up on other real converse issues, 🙂

    Needing more lime light, and what tune will Zelenskii play on the piano?
    “In Solidarity”???

    I would have thought there has been a well proven fountain of money flowing to Hamas to tap into.
    But I guess fighting against the muslim Chechens in the Ukraine put paid to that.

  30. As kea mentions in his “edit” above, the media are giving total support to islam.
    So how many mosques will have the flags & banners flying tomorrow in NZ.

    … More than 50 Australian Muslim organisations have issued a joint statement calling on as many mosques as possible to be lit with the colours of the Palestinian flag – red, black, white and green – or fly Free Palestine banners.
    It wants mosques, Islamic schools and education institutions to spend the next month hosting events to teach about the history of Palestine and the significance of Masjid al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. …..

    ….. They have also accused Australian political leaders of a one-sided portrayal of the issue.

    “Australia should be pursuing avenues of peace and restraint when navigating civil conflicts, rather than supporting a decision to light up the Sydney Opera House and Parliament House Canberra with the colours of a colonising, invading, Zionist occupying regime,” it said. ….

    One of those click bait time rolling time lines.

    Would you fly an Israeli flag tomorrow?

    A little adjustment to the NZ education curriculum would fit, and how great that Aotearoa already sends literature to Gaza.

    September 2022 ….. That [NZ} MFAT supports funding the glorification of terror in schools, while world leaders convene to combat terror online, seems hypocritical.
    A government that purports to stand against hate should not be so proud to fund violent extremist content overseas. ….

    How fortuitous that Aotearoa is well aligned with this Call, as “they are us” 🙁

    • I’m watching it. Don’t know why. They both look completely exhausted, and I’m not surprised – I’m over this campaign and I’m not even involved. Neither one of them are doing great. Hipkins being an arse and pulling cheap shots like “none of my MP’s beat up boys with bed legs. .” etc

      • Saggy, I punished myself and watched it. All I can say is that Hipkins is a smug little cunt and on Saturday, his day will come. And he will deserve it, he will deserve to squirm and conceed defeat.

        • Thanks AH. Yes “smug little cunt” – that’s what I was looking for. Have to laugh at the way Luxon gets right up Chippie’s nose when he tells him to calm down. Chippy looked like he was going to blow a gasket.

  31. Beer lovers beware: Climate change could soon make the world’s most popular alcoholic drink much more bitter.

    The doom and gloom surrounding climate change tends to offer a depressing picture of the future.

    But there may be a small glimmer of hope, as researchers from Oxford University have discovered that global warming is improving the quality of wine.

  32. One of the panelists on the debate post mortum was David Cunliffe. Can’t believe I’m saying this, but he provided a well-balanced and intelligent analysis. Probably who I was most impressed with the whole evening. I think I need a lie down.

    Then:

    “ Well, for one thing, Mr Bayly is pretty much invested in the global warming scam, and makes money from it by means of various capital ventures, no doubt padded out with the usual generous govt subsidies for such businesses.”

  34. That member of the public poor oldish “Agnes Magele”, that asked the beneficiary questions on the leaders debate.
    Talk about lying down with a dog & getting up with fleas.
    An activist for Auckland Action Against Poverty (AAAP) with Green Recardo Menendez.
    So Carmel Sepuloni did a way with any accountability from any one receiving the benefit.

    Just a protestor, demanding increased hand outs for her so called dignity; as Menendez sees it as leading to the “dynamics of financial abuse”
    So they abuse & enslave others to gain that benefit.

    25 November 2019
    An Auckland woman who lied about having a partner to make ends meet says the Government penalties for benefit fraud are far too harsh.

    Anti-poverty groups are pleading with the Prime Minister to end what they say are “unjust” rules around relationships in the welfare system.

    But for Agnes Magele the campaign comes far too late.

    At 19 years-old Magele was out of a job, seven months pregnant with her second child and behind bars for benefit fraud.

    “No one should have to be in that situation, to be honest, because I had got myself far deep in it as well, nobody knew,” she told Newshub

    She was in a relationship that provided no financial support, so she lied to Work and Income saying she was a solo parent living by herself to access more benefits and make ends meet.

    Agnes spent 18 months behind bars – now 18 years later, she still owes the Government $188,000.

    “I knew there was gonna be consequences, but I didn’t think it was gonna be that harsh,” she said.

    “It changed me, it changed me massively.”

    Beneficiaries’ weekly payments can be slashed by hundreds of dollars if they’re considered to be in a relationship.

    Auckland Action Against Poverty (AAAP) and eleven other groups have penned a letter to Jacinda Arden, insisting the rules are harmful.

    “Nobody should lose their financial independence because of who they’re in a relationship with or who the Ministry considers they’re in a relationship with. That just leads to dynamics of financial abuse,” said AAAP coordinator Ricardo Menendez March.

    Minister of Social Development Carmel Sepuloni says a review of relationship settings is part of a wider overhaul of the welfare system.

    But it’s not in the short term plan of work.

    Despite the open letter, the Government is giving no commitment to changing the rules.

    A set up to screw & use and abuse the taxpayer.

    • $188,000 is a fair wedge for a 19yr old to clock up in unentitled benefits.
      I’m certain there is more to the story.
      I might also suggest that even at 37 she is from a generation of teens with unprecedented levels of sex education and easy and free access to reproductive control technology so a second unplanned pregnancy by 19 is either deliberate or seriously thick. Then there’s also the matter of really really stupid taste in men that will never end well for her or her unfortunate progeny.
      I’m with you S1.
      All my sympathy lies with the taxpayer.
      I have none for the dumb dishonest hag.
