  1. OOhhh.. I’m here all alone. Just me. 🤔
    Hmmm. 🗣️ “HELLOOOOOOOOOOOO”
    Well, its 19:20hrs and the Hunster is heading out shortly. I’m lookin seriously flash. I’d root me.
    Patong is absolutely chocka with tourists. There’s a massive cruise ship parked offshore and the punters on board are being shuttled in. Muwhahahahaa! Easy money for the Thais. Hunty will be looking for an opportunity as well.
    “Hello Doris, nice to meet you. What? Your 76!? No way. You look 40. Widow? Oh, I AM sorry..come with me.

    • Yes but you have work to do.
      Hunty is out to play.
      Are you waiting for the next cruise ship too.

      He could give you some tips on the pick up lines.
      You might find a rich live one, not to old ,that’s looking!
      Or a really old rich one with no dependents.

  2. My opinion of Politicians is very low, but my opinion of Reporters and Political Opinion Writers, like Tova O’Brien is even lower.

    Here she calls Luxon “inexperienced”, this from a woman who could not even run a radio programme successfully and because she was so inexperienced she could not pull an audience subsequently the Radio Station collapsed. Pigshit quite frankly, has more value than O’Briens opinion.

    • If anyone is critical of this new government – play the race card. Both Seymour and Winston are Maori. As Maori as the leaders of Te Pati Maori. Accuse the leftist of racism and put on contrived displays of fake outrage. The left are motivated by misandry, hate, Nasism, racism, conspiracy theories about an imaginary “far right” call them out on it if they have anything but gushing praise for the government. Just as they have for the past 6 years.

    • Well AH we have yet to find out, he could be very frightened of the challenge ahead and too frightened to move things along. If they would just get a move on we would see wouldn’t we? Think the other two could run rings around him as I have said often. WTF are they all doing for goodness sake.Obviously he is pretty inexperienced if he can stuff about like this. Time is ticking.

        The 1996 election was held on 12 October however the government was not formed until 10 December.

        Less governance is better
        They will do S.F.A. before Feb 2024 anyway.
        The only concern is that some of the shitty stuff sneaked through in the last few months and not really opposed by notional will get baked in before they do anything-if they do anything.

        It is irrelevant how much experience Kluxon has – he is a puppet that will do what he is told. He has displayed this already.
        If any MPs show individuality they will be crushed in Mussolini style.

        luxon is not there for You. so forget about it.

  3. Cup Week, another wonderful week of blazing hot, North West winds, excitement, pissed people and money to be made and lost.
    I remember in the 60’s how the Christchurch Star would come out on Show Day – Friday – with a photo of people sweltering at the People’s Day Show with the big headline saying temperatures at 98 or 100 degrees etc.

    Now we have damn Climate Change – forecast for Friday in Christchurch.

    “Cloudy and wet, with scattered rain and showers moving north in the morning. Easing from evening. Fresh cool southerlies. High 13, Low 4.

    Yesterday was really hot here, I know it was at least 29 degrees. But that was still only 84 deg Fahrenheit. 100 is 37, it used to be hot – in the old days.

    “A Pākehā mother in a same-sex relationship sought the help of a Māori sperm donor so she could have what she described as a “half-caste” baby.

    But the friendship between the mother and donor broke down, and now a court has appointed the man as a guardian and granted him three-weekly contact to ensure the child’s cultural needs are met.”

  5. Journalist Benedict Collins uncovers story behind meth testing ‘scam’
    Newstalk ZB
    By Matt Burrows

    4 mins to read

    The journalist behind a book that touches on the story of New Zealand’s meth testing “scam” says his research has led him to believe the people selling P are just as bad as the drug itself.

    1NEWS political reporter Benedict Collins’ new book Mad on Meth: How New Zealand got hooked on P, which will be released in New Zealand bookstores on November 15, traverses the history of methamphetamine in Aotearoa.

    In an interview with Newstalk ZB’s Real Life with John Cowan on Sunday night, Collins said a safe supply scheme that loosened the stranglehold gangs have on the supply of P could be a worthwhile endeavour for the Government to consider.

    “Tens of thousands of people every year will use meth – most only once or twice. They might try it at a party. But you end up with about 15% of people who will end up getting hooked on it, and life’s pretty bleak for them right now,” he said.

  6. First we had the “40 beheaded babies”

    Now we have stories coming out that many of the Israeli casualties were friendly fire from helicopter gun ships and other heavy weapons. The response was highly reactive and they attacked anywhere they thought Hamas might be, including residential buildings. In one case Hamas were inside with about 11 hostages. They killed the lot.

    This might be Hamas propaganda. But one thing I noticed from the footage, right away, was the damage to structures. It looked liked heavy weapon damage – not man portable rocket launchers and grenades. Im tending think the claims have some merit.

        As opposed to meat puppetry where you simply twitch in response to trigger words and involuntarily blurt out things like: Naaazi 🤪 raaapist 🤪etc

        Anyways regardless of what exactly Hamas did or didn’t do – Israel has a right to self defence. Even if they are proven liars.

  7. Right, never saw this coming. //
    So RAL couldn’t make a go of it after decades in the business. But a bunch of tribes can make a success in the traditional maori industry of snow-skiing. Get your wallets out folks.

    “An iwi collective has plans to take over the management of Ruapehu Alpine Lifts (RAL), which operates the Whakapapa and Turoa ski fields.”

    • Well one of the Natives are lying Saggy. It was not more than a few weeks ago that Tuwharetoa said they were pulling out of negotiations for the purchase of RAL assets and wanted the Government to gift the assets to the money grubbing Maori IWI, known as Tuwharetoa.

      Now Tuwharetoa are joining up with other IWI to get hold of their traditional recreational habbits, stolen by the Colonialist. What the other IWI have failed to realise is how devious Tuwharetoa are. The Government would not play ball with them, so they have joined up with other IWI and if the skifields goes broke, yet again, it is not only Tuwharetoa who will loose part of their underpants collection but other IWI as well, so the loss for Tuwharetoa won’t be so bad but Tuwharetoa will still control the assets.

  10. A man realized he needed to purchase a hearing aid, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money.

    “How much do they cost?” he asked the salesman.

    “Anything from $2 to $2,000.”

    “Can I see the $2 model?” said the customer.

    The salesman put the device around the man’s neck and said:

    “You just stick this button in your ear and run this little string down into your pocket.”

    “How does it work?” asked the customer.

    “For $2, it doesn’t work,” said the salesman. “But when people see it on you, they’ll talk louder.”

    ACT leader David Seymour has signalled a meeting between all three potential Government partners is on the cards for Tuesday.

    Arriving in Wellington for another week of coalition talks, Seymour was asked whether all three parties – National, ACT and New Zealand First – could get around the table on Tuesday.

    “I think that is very possible,” he replied. “We are certainly very happy to meet anyone anytime and we are all in Wellington now, so that has got to make it easier.”

I stayed a couple of nights in a fisherman’s hut on the beach and his wife cooked fresh fish and rice for my supper and sold me a couple of bottles of warm Singha. That would have been about 1975 or so. When I went back ten years later there had been quite a transformation and not necessarily for the better.

      This was never about israel and hamas
      big distraction

      The yanks are ‘ cleaning house’ and want Iran subdued before old Brandon goes on a long sleep

      It has been about attacking Iran
      all along
      The US deep state LOVES War
      hell yeah

      but people love to get jizzy about the wrong things.
      People go on and on and on about lockerbie
      What caused that
      The US warship, USS Vincennes, illegally in Iranian waters shot down a civilian airliner
      Iran Air Flight 655
      murdering 290 people
      274 passengers and 16 crew

      The US would not admit to this let alone compensate
      This is WHY LOCKERBIE happened
      no other reason
      If the fking US had said ‘we screwed up’ and apologize as a start lockerbie bom/\ing would not have happened
      ———–
      In 1996, during the Clinton Administration, the governments of the U.S. and Iran reached a settlement at the International Court of Justice, which included the statement “… the United States recognized the aerial incident of 3 July 1988 as a terrible human tragedy and expressed deep regret over the loss of lives caused by the incident …”[15] As part of the settlement, even though the U.S. government did not admit legal liability or formally apologize to Iran, it agreed to pay US$61.8 million on an ex gratia basis in compensation to the families of the Iranian victims
      ———-
      The US paid $200,000 compensation per person they murdered

      But for lockerbie
      …On 29 May 2002, Libya offered up to US$2.7 billion to settle claims by the families of the 270 killed in the Lockerbie bombing, representing US$10 million per family…..

      So here is the US azzholes rarking up Iran again
      The US actually is the land of the Great satan
      The Iranians are correct here.

          Was there 7 or so times 1999 /2000/2001 incl for Sep 11 2001.

          THEY have made sure anyone who thinks of trying that again will suffer what Trump has, or worse.

          Evil is in the ascendancy .
          It stepped up post WW2.
          Pumped up in the 1960s (Johnson) and really stepped up after Reagan with GW Bush and others apart from Trump.
          Nixon was a far far better man than history records

      • Russia will most likely support Iran, as Iran has proved to be a good ally in supplying drones to Russia.
        Russia along with Iran also backs the leader of Syria Bashar Al-Assad against the American sponsored rebels.
        So Russia has bases there,
        How long loyalty may remain in that pressure cooker of so many diverse interest that opposes Bashar El Assad of Syria will also become interesting.

        • Russia has allies in Iran and Syria. Syria gives access to the Mediterranean. Not the only reason though.

          US does not have allies. It has subjects whom it bullies and cajoles and it has armed force in 40% of the worlds countries.

          Defines the US:-
          Hegemony is the political, economic, and military predominance of one state over other states. Hegemony can be regional or global. In Ancient Greece, hegemony denoted the politico-military dominance of the hegemon city-state over other city-states.

  14. A friend gave me a book about the Plimmer family to read. They were a prominent early Wellington family. John Plimmer –the original immigrant of the family was an investor in the Wellington and Manawatu Railway Company formed in 1881 which built the line between Thorndon (Wgt CBD)and Longburn just outside Palmerston North.

    Work began on the line September 1882 and the last spike was driven in 3 November 1886. In all 13 tunnels, 5 major bridges and one viaduct had to be constructed. Can you see such an engineering feat being done today, in such a short time frame, even with modern equipment ??

      Was once in the Romney Arms tavern at the bottom of the Steps.
      There was a humdinger earthquake. With a huge building above I wondered if if it might be the end.
      But no.

      I have made comments on here that the City Rail link in Akl is a farce.
      3.2 km and in its 5th or so year with more years to go.

      That Manawatu railway is an impressive story.

    Arrivals to Bali’s Denpasar Airport will find fresh screening measures and an abundance of caution regarding the contagious disease monkeypox.

    The capital Jakarta has experienced a rise in the disease in recent weeks, and Balinese authorities are taking precautions to stop it spreading to the islands.

    Plane passengers and crew are being greeted by new screening measures on arrival at the international airport.

    Thermal imaging and screening questions are being rolled out to meet arrivals on both international and domestic services in order to detect travellers with fever-like symptoms.

  19. $15.7 million worth of cocaine found in container of bananas at Port of Tauranga by Customs NZ
    Bay of Plenty Times

    About 35 kilograms of cocaine with a street value of $15.7 million were intercepted amid an attempt to smuggle the narcotics through the Port of Tauranga.

    Customs officers uncovered the cocaine hidden in the engine compartment of a refrigerated shipping container loaded with bananas which arrived from Panama on Thursday night.

    Customs maritime group manager Paul Campbell said the result came from well-targeted and regular verification checks on shipments at the border, which were supported by good intelligence from Customs’ overseas representatives in co-operation with international partner agencies.
