      • I wish I could argue with you Bon, but there is no evidence to back it up.
        We needed to get shot of the disastrous red wave (tick) and their even more disastrous green friends (tick) but we have replaced them with a team of people pretending to be not so bad.
        We still have a PM who thinks carbon is a bad thing.
        We still have a PM who will tax farmers for producing food.
        We still have a PM who thinks Pfizer wants us all to be healthy.
        We still have a PM who struggles to define a woman.
        Buckle up, it’s going to be a rough ride.

        • Yes Godfrey you are correct. New Zealand has woken up this morning to a new centre-left government replacing the communist gang which siezed control three years ago. This is a slight realignment by the globalist puppet masters, but it can no means be called a ‘win for the right’.

          • Time to cement in some wins. Change laws. Get into the culture. That is the long term power of the left. They get woke legislation implemented, and half of it sticks. The right seems to go to sleep on the cultural issues once they win, whilst the media and the left plot against it. Look “the media love me “as they aren’t actively hurling shit at me. If we do not push back, we will end up in prison, as the right in America is discovering. The left & globalists will use all power in victory.

  1. Oh how wonderful to have you back Ed, Yesterday I felt as though my hand was cut off. I missed the site more than I ever imagined I would.
    I want/need to go on some site and see what the actual results were. I watched Newstalk ZB and they were so congratulatory of Luxon asking the mps to call it in then, (early on) which none of them did but then it started to slide the other way and got down to 40.1% and they would need Winston so then I went to bed as they were so derogatory about NZ!st and all the parliamentarians for their side. the Maori Party seem to have had success and the greens also. Nothing much will change within this parliament WEF will rule us all whether you like it or not. They did under liarbor and will do under this lot.
    Have a great day out there and be careful, new government but no change in our lives at all.

    • Yes, Lizzie, without Ed’s great service yesterday, I was like Hipkins last night, a sniveling whimpering mess, huddled with my Teddy in a corner, not knowing how I was going to get through the day. Not good for a person with advancing years. But good to see Ed, that today looks brighter and that a great pile of excrement has not befallen you.

      While on the subject of sniveling and Teddy cuddling. I am overjoyed to see the former PM, a whining little ginga freak, that has had no vision for this country except control and divide, take a monumental pay cut last night. He now becomes an ineffectual opposition Backbencher. My only regret is that the little arsehole was not shown the door, permanently.

      As for most of the Labour MP’s who have been given the Arsecard, I guess this morning they will be trying to enhance their weak CV’s and pushing as many of them out the door to recruitment companies as fast as their Laptops will allow them. What a thing to have to do on a Sunday. I hope they do not enjoy their day at all.

  2. It’s going to take a while to absorb but at least the worst government in NZ history is gone.
    Mahooter the looter is on her scooter yay.
    I listened to coverage on red radio essentially only option . Couldn’t stand Hosking and his arrogance.
    NN mentioned iwi in his victory speech in a way that possibly underlined another appeasing approach a la Key.
    Good and bad news and missed the rebel rousers on ysb.
    Tarquin no doubt celebrating .

  3. 6 loooooooooooooong years.

    thank fuck that era of nz politics is over, i do however wish that jacinda wasnt a gutless coward and jumped ship early as this election result is essentially her doing and the country got deprived of the satisfaction of witnessing her being held accountable for it.

    ill never fucking forget those 6 yrs and neither will my kids, fuck you labour for all the time, money and hope you cost this country with your dumb fucking ideas and covid response.
    fuck you too national, we may have had the shittest govt nz has seen but we also had the shittest opposition ever aswell. im not gunna hold my breath that national has what it takes to fix or change nz either.

    i know i mercilessly mocked the freedom parties, some of it was well deserved and some of it not but thank you for at least giving a shit about kiwis and having a crack even tho as predicted it was to no avail.
    had election been 12-18months ago i think the result would have been very different for those freedom parties, inflation and desperation became a bigger issue then covid grievances. hopefully many of the tiny parties will pull the pin and 1 or 2 will stay on and cosilidate the wasted vote, we desperately need new party options in parliament but theres so many egos in the way, surely all those embarassing results esp the sub 1% is a good enough signal to give it a rest?

    anyways have a good day fellow stupid boys and girls, although nats have more seats then id like im relieved labour and esp bro party wont be wrecking our lives for at least another 3yrs.

  4. Coming headlines:

    1. The system is broken and we need electoral reform.
    2. Far right.
    3. Racist.
    4. NZ has a problem.

    ⚠️Note⚠️

    2/3 or 66.67 % of our leaders are now Maori and that is not counting the Maori seats. Don’t forget to scream into the face of moaning leftists:

    1. Racist.
    2. Conspiracy theorist.
    3. Misandrist.
    4. White supremacist.

  5. Mr Ed

    Welcome back Sir; You and the ‘Blog were both missed.

    In respect of the election (And as the NZMSM are distinctly biased towards the left, and therefore untrustworthy), since chippie appears to have departed (Thanks wiseowl) who ‘won’, who is the PM designate (Chippy’s replacement) , and is winnie now a ‘King maker’ or has he been consigned to the opposition benches?

    Thank you.

    • that someone done premature victory laps and started throwing their weight around when they shouldve shut the fuck up.
      i was 100% voting for act 5-6wks ago, then unsure and yesterday much to the amusement of our local vet that pulled up to the polling venue i left my vote to the fate of a coin toss before i went in… 1st toss went to winnie…. oooooo, maybe best of 3 then i thought… winnie again so winnie it was. im not gunna argue a good old coin toss

    • WO, most of those voting Green, live in Wellington and Auckland and are young idealists. They have no idea how the rest of the country works, survives or generates the wealth that these same Green voters exist on.

      That my friend, is where the problem of this country is. Fortunately, all the Green MP’s are now Backbenchers and are almost ineffectual, but well paid to be so.

    • …Maoris make up over 16% of NZ

      That is heavily diluted and a significant number are even one sixteenth or 1/32 so the FTE – full time equivalent (or full blood equivalent) is well below 4%
      Well below the 5% threshold so they should not have special place .

      To his credit Shame Jones acknowledges and even embraces has Croatian and Welsh ancestry.
      There would be bugger all that are even 3/8 Maori blood.
      so under 4% – 1 in 25 people FTE should not have a special say.

      the FTE for Pacific Islanders would be at least 8%
      and Asian – China, Malaysia(mainly ethnic Chinese anyway) , Thai, viet, Lao, Korean et al will be over 12%

      This treatment of immigrants who arrived 500 years before the next wave of settlers and likely after prior settlers should be stopped NOW.
      It wont.

  6. There is a big scab that Luxon has to rip off on the Port Waikato seat has it heads to the bye election coming soon.

    Do not fuck around, get it sorted now !

    And do not put in one of your “wet mates” or another “co-governance” devious white buddy, as they are around; like Chris Finlayson.

    • The vast majority of Notional MPs are wishy washy. Bayly is no different.
      That is why I don’t celebrate the change.

      Some relief on extremism and black out of all stats; but not a significant change in direction. pointed out by others
      -Net Zorro is still a big deal
      Will he properly change RMA when Notional did not in 9 loooong years and in fact passed the original horror 32 years ago
      -WFF to increase
      -Welfare to increase
      -They wont cut the pubic service by any significant number

      Apartheid era leader luxon is a socialist through and through.
      He is an administrator with a BComm.

  7. Well Happy Birthday to Me – Thank You New Zealand for my my best ever present I have received – the END of that bloody Labour Party and their other shits on their side of the bench.
    Going to disagree with a seemingly negative view here – just as I accepted begrudgingly the previous Labour 3/6 years wins I waited to see whether the comments made ie “all New Zealanders ” had any truth and then watched in despair as the wasted their majority and did not govern for the Country.
    In my opinion I felt that Luxon was very statesman like last night and he certainly looks – and acts – like a Prime Minister. I believe he will maintain a tightly run ship and will move ahead along the lines of all things as promised over the campaign.
    Personally I would not vote for National/ACT because of their views over the vaccination and protests. I am however very pleased to support them now and will hope they do not let us down.
    I am disappointed over the end result of Democracy New Zealand – they peaked early and then a proliferation of small like minded parties completely destroyed the protest vote. I feel a lot of like minded people in the end when to either ACT or mainly NZFirst who promised to both stop the Maoris and investigate the vaccine.
    My wife voted DNZ, I went NZF – her disappointment is that Matt King promised us on October 14th last year in Timaru that he was going to win the Northland seat – because of that reason he would not join the combined small parties. I saw this on a post this morning “You came 4th out of 9 candidates in your electorate and 7th out of 17 party votes in your electorate…what’s worse is NZ Loyal got almost double the party votes than you…what’s up with Northland? ”
    I look forward to the next 3 – hopefully 9 years – and that I can feel proud of my Country – New Zealand – once again.
    Now I will watch the rugby.

      • Yes, and don’t forget that LUXON is another of the same mould as jacinda with a balder head.
        Recall his admonishement of those that spoke out like Kruiger etc. He is a company man with company policy so don’t expect him to be anything else. It will be his view and no one else’s.

        What will be interesting now is the argy-bargy over Cabinet positions.
        Who will get what.
        He can’t govern alone. Has no real friends at all Act opposes so many of his utterings as do NZ first.

        Congratulations you have voted for the second worst of all options. He could of course go with the Greens which is his natural company inclinations.
        The greens look like they will have 14 seats. did you all vote for that..
        Have today we did warn you all it was a possibility.

        We ill see what happens in the next couple of weeks.
        The only one not commenting at the moment is your friendly NZ First Leader who should be made our next Govenor General.

  8. The real problems of how National select and are ok with candidates like this.

    Dale Stephens, the National Party’s Christchurch Central candidate, says his party might decide to keep some elements of co-governance, if elected next month. …
    https://www.teaonews.co.nz/2023/09/28/nationals-maori-mps-to-fight-to-keep-elements-of-co-governance-mp/

    Even though that Dale Stephens lost to the Labour Duncan Webb of Free Palestine.

    As mentioned, this maori caucus runs deep in National, with many more interconnections, like in Hamilton West of Potaka, parachuted in by the National Party machine.
    The continuing sell out by Chris Finlayson. Don’t under estimate his influence with some National Party members.

  9. Some observations from around the election:

    1- I need to trust my own findings more. I posted a couple times everything I had witnessed pointed to a massive landslide victory for the Rightblock parties. Media commentators were calling a close election. How could these clowns get it so wrong?

    2- The Maorification of TV election coverage. We had Johnny Campbell and reporters in the field spouting pigeon English at every turn. Maori electorates got, in my opinion, way more coverage than they deserve. Dave and ACT got little coverage.

    3- Maiki Sherman asking the National Party president whether it was fair National had such a large election war chest to fight the election. The fine Tory president put Maiki in her place ever so nicely.

    4- Chippy heading into Labour HQ to concede the election. We have all been there. He looked like a school kid on his way to the headmasters office. He was shattered. His confidence gone. He strangely thought Labour might rally towards the end stretch of vote counting.

    5- The weird commentators TV roped in to give us their views. Metiria Turei, now big as a house and tattooed. Simon Bridges now chubby as. And f you want to see what politics does to people, Kiri Allen looked 10years younger.

    6- Meka Whaitiri got just deserts for abandoning her comrades.

    7- Who is going to resign? Labour faces a possible decade plus in opposition depending on how good the Master is at his job

    8- How disappointed am I going to be as a ACT supporter. Will Dave drive a hard bargain, or will he have give up impotent policy like a referendum on the Treaty principles?

    9- Winston has to be in the picture. We can’t have him being a loose cannon in parliament, or a problem at the 2026 election. I can see a few problems with that upcoming election for National.

    10- Chloe Swarbrick. went on a massive victory rant. Why? The Greens are now toothless tigers.

    11- James Shaw. When Marama started to rant , it looked like Shaw wanted to puke. Internal problems ahead for the Greens.

  10. Can somebody do the Maths. 50 +11 =61. On the 25th, they pick up Port Waikato. Does that give them 52? Because of our racist constitution, the Maori separatists have 4 seats. How many seats will we have when all the counting and wailing is over. ( Much easier in Africa where “my gun is bigger than yours, so I rule….”).

    Point I am making is I am glad Winstone got back in, but I would like to see stable government that does not rely on his support.

    So Luxon goes home to a Lovely Lass that even Hunty would approve of. Hipkins, …. whose arms did he find solace in? Hope he had a fucking horrible night from the first time he saw Nat 40%…….

  11. Being the patient person that I am I awaited the nights results.
    Looking at them a little closely no one should celebrate anything except the outing of Hipkins and labour.

    You can see the vote count here. https://www.electionresults.govt.nz/

    Then you can have a look at the seats that are so close that the Nats my well lose a couple.
    Te Atatu and Nelson are in the mid hundred so could go either way.

    Tāmaki Makaurau and Te Tai Tokerau are border line and could go to Te Pati

    There ar others that are in the low numbers including Bishops, that could yet change.

    The only bit I watched last night due to other commitments was Luxon’s speech.

    And you know he must have used Jacinda’s speech from 3 years ago.

    Remember she said she would govern for all NZers.

    How well did that go?

    We have made no progress at all.
    We stillhave the WEF indoctrination alive and well.
    We stillhave the jabby bastards in place.
    Next will come all the wailing about whats in the books etc etc.

    Heard it all before.
    Do I think NZ will be in a better place in 3 years.
    Probably Not.

                  There’s a religion in the Ntas that have those fudge principles. Didn’t know Winston was one.

                  • Now there’s a funny thing. Didn’t hear a Dickey bird from DNZ since I signed up as a pre-registration supporter and donor, and then a registered member, donor and volunteer.
                    If they had a mailing list they didn’t use it until hey! a week before the election they remember I exist and I’m getting email.
                    Kirsten Murfitt was a strong candidate for DNZ and would have done well. Turns out she did do well – only for NZ First. In fact she got more candidate votes than Matt King did.
                    Frankly all the conspiracy against DNZ with spies and leaking and stolen policies is pretty stale. The continued character assassinations esp by yourself toward Murfitt stinks of desperation.
                    Like you, I was attracted to DNZ origin and ethos. I had no hesitation in throwing my support toward a fledgling party, and gladly invested time and shoe leather. I soon started having frustrations about party organisation but that down to birthing issues.
                    Then the full force of mismanagement hit and the party disintegrated. I could not have been more gutted. Of course the faithful denied this and attacked anyone who had doubts.
                    It seems in the face of overwhelming evidence that DNZ was severely mismanaged the attacks by party faithful toward anyone not similarly deluded are to continue.
                    You haven’t spoiled my breakfast – DNZ lack enough relevance for that, but the personal attacks and endless conspiracies are beneath you and extremely tiresome.
                    Have another pint of vinegar.

  12. Labour got their arse kicked which is good but the ACT result was disappointing, arch jab proponent Seymour, cost them a lot of votes especially in the last couple of weeks. Winston Peters who gave us Jacinda Ardern in 2016 is back with 8 seats. It will be interesting to see how much of the damage of recent years can be reversed but don’t hold your breath Chris “jacinda light” Luxon is not the man to lead the country back onto the right path I’m afraid.

  13. A little boy and his grandfather are raking leaves in the yard.
    The little boy sees an earthworm trying to get back into its hole.
    He says, “Grandpa, I bet I can put that worm back in that hole.” The grandfather replies, “I’ll bet you five dollars you can’t.
    It’s too wiggly and limp to put back in that little hole.”
    The little boy runs into the house and comes back out with a can of hair spray.
    He sprays the worm until it is straight and stiff as a board.
    The boy then proceeds to put the worm back into the hole.
    The grandfather hands the little boy five dollars, grabs the hair spray and runs into the house.
    Thirty minutes later the grandfather comes back out and hands the boy another five dollars.
    The little boy says, “Grandpa, you already gave me five dollars.” The grandfather replies, “I know. That’s from your Grandma.”

    • Luxon said he didn’t want “anti-vaxxers” voting for him, and National slumped in the polls.
      Seymour said he wouldn’t work with toxic Winston and ACT slumped in the polls.

      Winston said wanted a proper Covid/Vaccine inquiry and stated Maoris were not indigenous, and NZ First rose in the polls.

      Seymour says ACT told ‘truths’ porkies that ‘often weren’t well received’.

    An Addict’s Redemption Story the World NEEDS to Hear | Jeff Allen | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 198

    Allen’s life wasn’t always about good timing and funny stories. He sits down with Glenn in this episode of “The Glenn Beck Podcast” to tell his full story. His book, “Are We There Yet: My Journey from a Messed-Up to Meaningful Life,” details everything from addiction and his rock bottom to the moment that changed everything and turned him fully toward Christ. He tells Glenn about his nonchalant marriage proposal at an airport baggage claim in Cleveland, Ohio, a hilarious incident on a ski lift, and how performing with Dry Bar Comedy helped “change [his] life.” But ultimately, this conversation provides what most of us need after being bombarded with devastating news around the world day after day: a good cry and a good laugh.

    • I’m praying Winston needs to be involved. He and his team are the only ones who will be in Parliament committed to a proper Covid/Vaccine inquiry, and rollback of Maori racism.

      We can have a mosque shooting where 51 die of lead injections, and more wounded and because of the govt and media it gets full publicity (as it should) and laws restricting the legal ownership of guns.

      We have thousands of NZer’s drop dead from vaccine injections, and tens of thousands more wounded, and it is a non-event all because the govt and media cover it up. Furthermore they do not lawfully restrict the injections, and instead mandate them, and gaslight anyone that raises it. And that is despite OIA requests that prove that our govt knew the risks, but did it anyway.

      Anyone that denies that this is not important has become de-sensitized to loss of human life; and lost the ability to think critically, and instead have become Dr Who ‘Cybermen’, only reacting to, or acting upon what their earpieces, mobile phones, tablets and TVs are telling them.

      And Klaus Schwab et all are Daleks: “Exterminate Humans, Exterminate, Exterminate, Exterminate”.

        yep yep that is what it is .
        people are far less critical or analytical and kids are not taught critical thinking .
        In fact the opposite,
        They are not taught HOW to think.
        They are now told WHAT to think and get a pretty hard time if they question it.
        Globby warming, the darkies are sooo oppressed, women are underpaid etc

        He is pleased to finish and taking a gap year at least. He says there has been significant indoctrination . His older brother is a goody two shoes so absorbed the Marxism and now at University. the younger one now looks forward to being able to think freely .
        Very few teachers he could look up to as they are dogmatic and not giving the tools to truly learn with.

        • Contrasting that as a “boomer” we learned at age 14-15 in history about MMP being a Marxist invention which lead to the coalition of hell which was the NAZI party; and that the Illuminati were trying to control the world.

          We learnt about rampant inflation caused by Germany printing money. I still have German stamps from that era, which many people do, inherited from parents and grandparents, that are overprinted by thousands of times their original value.

          At age 16-17 in economics, we learned about inflation (again), tariffs, subsidies, and the laws of supply and demand, and diminishing margin returns.

          Not all us however did learn, as one or two went on to become Marxist Unionists, and communist party members.

      Simples.
      Yay to a new PGF.

      Interesting to note from that article of course; that after all the hype and hoopla and two electorate seats that ACT have only added 1 seat.
      ONE.
      That will not have enhanced their negotiability position much when Notional are up 15 to 17 seats and NZF are up 8 seats.

      Relatively speaking it was a mixed but not over whelming result for ACT and for 20 years straight the Green party have done better.
      ACT beaten time after time by an anarcho-marxist group has to be pause for thought, and who really are the bad buggers in NZ.
      The comment above about bad voters ….

      Note that in Mt Albert , Helen White (back to a Helen !! ) on 10,000 is 100 ahead of Melissa Lee but
      MENENDEZ MARCH, Ricardo has 6000 votes.
      That is scary.

    • And I do hope that he is involved, I don’t know of any politician around the world that sticks to the truth and Winston is no exception.
      However if he gets a fair go in this national/act government and he can get the inquiry regarding the jab that is enough to see me happy. I do not believe that the money is there this time for a payment to NZ1st and it will be nothing like the 3 billion that was given last time he was kingmaker, and, just asking for a friend but did NZ1st get the whole amount of 3 billion? He can keep in line Maori as can Shane Jones which will be a good thing as to the number of Maori Party MPs are rightening and luxflakes is a huge suck up to them. No one else could do that.

          Winston was all in on the jabs at the start but he changed his view on the issue later on. Nothing wrong with that, in fact it is good to see a politician change their view on an important issue.
          Apparently he sat down with Dr Matt Sheldon, for a long discussion, at the start of the campaign and that discussion cemented his change of mind.

    More government papers show the extent to which advance purchases of advertising was used by the government to provide urgent short-term cash injections to the media sector in 2020 amidst fears of the viability of some media players. Options such as government loan guarantees and expediting the assessment of mergers (such as the NZME/Stuff merger) were not progressed in favour of financial support from the government…

  19. Australia has had its Brexit moment. Woke PM Anthony Albanese asked Aussies to sign a blank cheque and got a big fat zero in return

    In the wake of his election victory last year, left-leaning Labor Prime Minister believed that the rest of the nation shared his view – and that of his metropolitan inner Sydney electorate – that an Aboriginal body should be consulted on any future laws that affect Indigenous people.

    The working men and women of Australia disagreed. All six states voted No.

  21. I hope the Jews of the world renounce leftism and the promotion of mass muslim immigration into the West. Something they have led from the front. They have created a monster. The left are talking endlessly about Israel dropping bombs but are not reporting that Gaza has rained rockets continuously into Israel since the initial attack. Jews gave us Soviet Marxism. The USSR invented concentration camps and ended up putting Jews in there for thinking too much, way before another socialist did the same in Germany.

    It is time moderate Jews renounced the Jewish leftist extremists. If the West falls Jews and Israel are fucked.

    These are the people the left supports. It disgusts me how they are not being called out in the media and that the authorities are not acting on their membership and financial support of terrorists.

Like many (all) Middle Eastern cultures – they love being the oppressed victim. No idea why. Probably something to do with their religious stories about struggle and they adopting the moral high ground.

  23. The documents included maps and plans indicating Hamas’s intent to kill or take hostages among the civilian population

    Israeli first responders have discovered documents on the bodies of Hamas terrorists that detail the group’s intentions to harm civilians and school children, as shared with NBC News.

    The documents included maps and plans indicating Hamas’s intent to kill or take hostages among the civilian population.

    One document labeled “Top Secret” outlines a plan for an attack on Kfar Sa’ad, directing “Combat Unit 1” to “contain the new Da’at school” and “Combat Unit 2” to “collect hostages,” “search the Bnei Akiva youth center,” and “search the old Da’at school.”

    Another document titled “Top Secret Maneuver” describes a plan for Hamas units to secure different sides of Kfar Sa’ad, with orders to maximize casualties and capture hostages, even specifying the use of a dining hall for this purpose.

    Israeli officials are currently examining a larger collection of documents that reveal Hamas’s systematic gathering of intelligence on kibbutzim bordering Gaza and specific attack plans for each village, with an intentional focus on targeting women and children.

    Speaking anonymously due to the ongoing investigation, an IDF official expressed astonishment at the extent of planning behind this mass terrorist attack, stating, “I’ve never seen this kind of detailed planning” for a mass terror assault.

  24. A change of subject. I read this on a BFD post yesterday and thought SB and others might be interested.

    ” This is the story of my Great great grandfather, who arrived in Nelson on 4th November 1842 on “New Zealand’ as a 15-year old with his siblings and step-siblings. Thirty eight years later this hard-working and thrifty man proved what is possible through hard work and attention to detail. If this nation was populated by men of his ability, then what a nation we would be!
    Remember, all that he had accomplished by 1880, the date of this article, had been done by physical labour and and the rudest of machinery.
    I hope the farmers here enjoy it.
    His land was broken up into 39 farms in 1905.
    GREENFIELD ESTATE.
    “New Zealand Pastoral and Agricultural News” (published in Wellington) contains this reference to Greenfield estate:—
    “Among the best known farms in the Colony none is better worth a visit than Greenfield, the estate of James Smith, Esq., on the Clutha River, Otago. The estate is 24,000 acres in extent, fenced with seven wires and wooden posts, and subdivided into paddocks of 60 to 600 acres each. 13,000 acres have been ploughed and cultivated, the remainder continues in natural grasses improved by the sheep grazing upon it for the last 20 years.
    Very large grain crops have been taken from the land, and the yields have been as much as 60,000 bushels of wheat, 9000 bushels of barley, and 30,000 bushels of oats in one season.
    Mr Smith’s rule is never to take more than one grain crop. The land is then put to turnips or rape. Under this system, the yield of wheat ranges from 40 to 50 bushels per acre, and has been as high as 60, while oats run from 50 to 60 bushels and have reached 80. This year there are 2500 acres in turnips, on which 20,000 sheep have been netted for the last three months to fatten for the Dunedin market. Wheat is sown in April, and barley in May; harvested at the end of January.
    Turnips are sown in November and eaten off in the winter, after which grass and rape are sown any time between September and March, and are fit for the stock from six to eight weeks after sowing. After three years of this course, the land is again ready for the splendid crops of grain for which Greenfield is so well known.
    This year, owing to the low price of grain, Mr Smith has limited his cultivation of white crops materially, but has 43,000 sheep, 200 head cattle, and over 200 horses on the farm. The sheep and cattle are for the market, the horses for farm use, sixty being used for ploughing, and the remainder for draft and other purposes. Twenty double furrow ploughs are in use, and as many more are worked by contractors.
    Mr Smith would prefer steam ploughs, but has found them risky and expensive, as there are no ready means of repair in case of accident, and much loss of time and money would be occasioned thereby. Fuel and water are also difficulties. Some idea of the extent of the operations at Greenfield may be gained from the fact that 21,000 to 22,000 bushels of oats are consumed yearly as feed for the farm horses and for those of the contractors, while 3,000 sheep and a few bullocks are killed yearly to feed the men employed.
    The farm is supplied with every appliance in the shape of steam threshers, grubbers, double-furrow ploughs, rollers, saws, &c. The returns from Greenfield will be this year chiefly fat stock, wool, and grass seed, very little grain comparatively being for sale. Between 24,000 bushels perennial rye grass seed have been taken from 480 acres, and 163,000 lbs wool shorn from 27,000 sheep, while 500 or 600 fat sheep are sent weekly to the Dunedin market from May to December.
    The lambs are not shorn till 14 or 15 months old. The ewes are merinos brought yearly from the hill stations, and are put to Leicester rams bred at Greenfield. The sale of fat sheep during the year is from 12,000 to 15,000.
    In grass sowing for pasture, Mr Smith uses 2 lbs cocksfoot and one bushel rye to the acre, and finds this sufficient when a sowing machine is used; without it a quarter bushel more would be required.
    Thirteen years ago, Greenfield was all in its rude state as a sheep run. Energy, skill, and capital have made it one of the finest and most profitable estates in the Colony. Mr Smith continues breaking new land at the rate of about 1200 acres per annum.
    He intends doing so until the whole is under cultivation, and the yield o£ his magnificent estate will go on increasing proportionately.
    GREENFIELD ESTATE.

    • So National getting donations from rich people is outrageous, but stealing the working mans union fees to fund Labour is all OK?

      Perhaps if Hipkins has spent more time reflecting on what NZ wanted and built a plan, instead of attacking everyone, they would have done better.

      And Luxon did not lose the debates, he won them because he was calm, well mannered, and didn’t dig up dirt and shout like a banshee.

      A friend attended a local political debate. Winston was there in pin strip suit and tie, and spoke well. National candidate well dressed but no suit and tie. Only Winston and National candidate stood up to talk. The rest stayed sitting including the Labour candidate. Based on appearance and manners, Labour deserved to lose.

As if Hulun doesn’t have or know anyone with influence and runs a global Think Tank. I’m sure she knows the big end of town and also garners donations. Woe is me and envy is not a good look, particularly when Labour have many of their own supporters and sources of funding.

  25. MICHAEL BASSETT – HALLELUJAH: FIRST STEPS OF PROGRESS AT LAST

    Some kind of deliverance is at hand. The worst government of my long life is off to the knackers’ yard, along with several MPs who played a key role in its demise. National and Act look like they can cobble together a working arrangement before the final count tells them whether New Zealand First will be needed in more than a support-party role. David Seymour should emerge as Deputy Prime Minister and Brooke Van Velden who starred amongst the results should also become a key minister. With new attention to detail, we should get a new education policy and an end to racial division within the Health structure. There will be modest tax cuts, and some reduction of the bloated numbers in the public service.

    • Readers may recall the canings I’ve received for pointing out that for all his faults Kieran McAnulty was a bloody good electorate MP & his 15,427 votes attest to that. He came after years of lacklustre National MPs such as the arrogant, out of touch John Hayes followed by the self-opinionated carpet bagger Alistair Scott.

      Most voters know that the party vote is all important in deciding who runs the country but it leaves them free to choose who will represent them at a grass roots level.

        The taniwha’s are becoming very putrid, as they demand their special koha
        Like demanding input into farm plans about fresh water, but its the extraction koha over any drip of water.

        Town people may not notice it, but the increase of their rates & water charges, electricity line charges, & production to be fit for “mana” will increase those costs. How scientifically the mana of roads, lakes, rivers, & mountains have to comply, & be charged for.
        Just as so many District Councils, Regional Councils, Government Departments all have extra costs to be in Maori compliance.
        While the government smiles & waves collecting the increased GST on those costs.

        To even gain a RMA consent & permit for a wind mill, will incorporate the hidden koha’s for those extra special sly committee meetings give approval in more than just name only.

        It will all ultimately & insidiously cost in a constant ongoing way, a lot of $. mucha too many New Zealanders.

            Apology for length of link, as I have tried to shorten,
            plus tried to use some different tinyurl,
            but it was often rejected or the tiny url would not work.
            And it is that link blown it out to super wide.
            It stayed in the comment box but blew out on “Post”
            So paragraphed the sentences to fit.

            An interesting point of a school teacher protecting his job?
            How long will his “linked in” stay up??

      • They’ll be worried that NZ will go the way of Brexit, Australia NO vote, and give the Elite a wedgie when it comes to trying to give away our nation. Passing soveriegnty of our nation to a tribe of “anti-collonial” whingers, whom are much easier to corrupt, is their goal, but they’ve been caught.

    • A long life. Surprised to discover from his biography that he fought in active service with British Army in Korea. His description of getting stuck behind enemy lines in the Jungle at night, was memorable for me, and formative for him.

    • That may have been Hipkin’s defining moment. Tying to be slippery while grasping wokeness when asked to interpret what a woman was would have gone down like a lead balloon on the building sites & in the packing sheds throughout NZ.

      The concept of LGBTQQIP2SA doesn’t sit well amongst working folk particularly when it is rammed down their throats.

      Virtue signalling has a price.

    • Both legs will soon be gone if left in that state.
      Talk about Nero fiddling while Rome burns.

      Not even be able to walk to the bog or urinal.
      To lose 1 of the small joys in life.

      Talk about rolling around in the gutter.

    • …..”Some researchers are already working on ways to convert plastic bags back into oil.”…….

      The technology has been around for a while & eventually it must become economic.

      https://www.plastoil.co.nz/

      It can be described as 100% efficient because the power required to run the plant can be supplied by utilising some of the product. To the rabid Greens though the subject is red flag to a bull. It releases carbon & encourages use of oil.

    • I know there are new plastic culverts, pipes out of recycled plastics.
      Just found the power companies can not get the hard wood for cross arms on power poles, are now using plastic cross arms. Would seem ideal in also aiding in “insular” ways.
      Which reminds of the recycling in making plastic fence posts, though a bit pricey. Maybe larger scale may help, and some continuity will help.
      Also may be great for electric fences, & screws with those ;battery power drills instead of staples,
      Longevity will become interesting in certain circumstances?

      But for some of us, it should see us out, with out any problems. 🙂

    You predicted 3,800 for DNZ
    I’m here to claim my prize

    “I’d put them more like 6k
    A virtual chocolate fish to whichever of us is closer.
    And if they end up with a seat you and I will owe Viking and Ed a whole box of them!”

    They’re currently on 5,303 with 93% ccounted.
    Time for you to concede.
    I’m virtually unwrapping my virtual prize!,
    ——————–
    YES I concede
    looks like 5500 to 5600 total party
    This is closer to 6000

    I said top of 5000, mid point 3800.

    Swish Zam > > > http – sending chocolate fish tout de suite.
    But no need for a box of the things

  30. By hook or by crook – bloody politicians

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/10/15/aus-looks-to-lift-indigenous-living-standards-after-referendum-loss/
    Australia will look for new ways to lift Indigenous living standards after voters soundly rejected a proposal to create a new advocacy committee, the deputy prime minister said today.

    “Coming out of this referendum there is a greater call for action on closing the gap,” Marles added.
