  1. I watched Jenna Lynch on Newshub have a monumental sook last night about Winston Peters and his method of answering inane questions.

    It was a delight to see.

    Now, I am no Winston Peters fan, but if he carries on like this and delivering the shit back to these uneducated, rude Journalists like Jenna Lynch, then I may just have to change my mind. The Chicken, it seems has turned and the Weasels don’t like it.

    • It takes an old man to speak the truth and Yep I voted for him, never have before but weighed up Matt King and ACT but went with Winston because he was the person who was going to at least give some of the things that I believe we need here today in this once beautiful land. I have to say that he has delivered on most of the promises he promised some not but in a three way discussion that is totally understandable. Davos Dave was weak in his negotiations he did not get the treaty discussions as I would have liked that was far more important to me than most other things. Lux flakes still is what he is…….
      I love the way Winston is handling the press, it gives me HUGE pleasure to see him giving back to them what they gave everyone not left leaning, communists etc.
      Have a great day out there and be safe.

  2. The Sparrows haven’t taken a dump yet and I see my day is getting much happier.

    The Colonial hat wearing part Maori, Rawiri Waititi, is most upset that the new Government will be introducing Legislation to overturn the Court Of Appeal’s Judgement on Customary Title to the Seabed and Foreshore, to that originally laid out by Parliament.

    John Key’s National Government and Key’s fellow Traitor, Christopher Finlayson should never have introduced this divisive Legislation in the first place.

    Anyway, to see the Colonial hat wearer and pseudo Maori. being most upset, has made my day.

  3. TAH, Most know my thoughts on Peters but I’ve gotta agree with you there TAH. the fricking cheek of that dyke looking bastard to straight face deny tens of millions of dollars were shoveled into our leftist MSM to uphold Cnutface Arderns favorite narratives .????

    • Revvy, you have to give it to Nude Nut and his Coalition Partners. Two days into the job and they have managed to upset all the Troughers, Native Elite and the do gooders like the Smokefree Lobby, than the Weasel, Ardern did, in 6 long years.

      Just think what they will be able to do in the six years Ardern had. Times are about to be good.

    • “Not only did National get its throat cut in negotiations, but worse, it had its ideas stolen, repurposed, enhanced, by the populists, the culture warriors, the hard right-wingers.”

      it cracks me up how muppets think luxon was a weak negotiator for giving winnie and seymour so much… the fail to accept that they had good ideas and policy to benefit the majority of kiwis hence why they got them over the line.

      if it were labour green govt and greens got wealth taxes, doubled benefits etc i doubt no lefty shithead would ve screaming the greens got too much or the tails wagging the dog

      go eat shit you leftist losers, you got given an inch and took many miles not only here but globally the world is sick of progessive woke bullshit. thank fuck change looks like its coming.

    • It’s not anti-Maori sentiment, it’s anti-trougher. The Maori at the top of the pile are just as greedy and grasping as their non-Maori equivalents. They have no interest in the welfare and wellbeing of regular Maori, and certainly no interest in equity, in the sense of one person, one vote.

      Joel Maxwell is a useful idiot for those trougher Maori, writing grade A tosh, supporting them.

      If he thinks that having clauses in legislation that give unelected, and most likely, uninformed Maori groups, power over others is a wonderful and fair thing, then he’s clearly a racist.

      As for him boohooing about smokefree legislation, it blew my mind that they were even allowed to pass such legislation in the first place. He also obviously hasn’t heard of a concept called “individual responsibility” – don’t smoke if you don’t want to.

      Using Joel’s logic, there should be a moving age restriction on buying sugary drinks and fatty foods as well.

      I’m glad so many of these utter imbeciles are wailing and gnashing their teeth. I hope they’re still doing so for the next twenty years.

      • I think that it wasn’t so much th endeavor to discourage smoking, which is a good thing to do but the complete ban enforced upon us.
        All it did was increase the Vapes which will cause problems and handed the distribution to the gangs as it has other substances.

      Cleaning ships: What’s involved in meeting New Zealand’s strict biofoul thresholds

      11:59 am on 4 January 2023

      Some divers in the Bay of Plenty spent their Christmas cleaning algae and barnacles from ships off the coast of Tauranga.

      There has been an increase in demand for the work due to a shortage of international cleaning facilities and stricter biofoul thresholds.

      Just last week, cruise ship Viking Orion chose to leave New Zealand waters to be cleaned when it only gained restricted port access due to the algae levels on its hull.

        Thank you; Yes, I was aware of the situation, and was surprised that the shipping co.’s seem determined to ignore their responsibilities (As owners) then when ‘caught’ have no problem in passing the buck and absolving themselves. of all and any responsibility.

        Although it makes good PR to blame the NZ Regulations, it doesn’t ultimately solve the problem of a fouled hull which was the original cause.

    • Tarquin, I use what I need to finish the job then put 4 or 5 layers of glad wrap on the can and force the lid and the round clip back on ,I’ll guarantee it’ll be perfect in 12 months We just touched ours up on Sunday and the 12 month old A/F in the tin was still perfect, I replaced the hose from the toilet to the holding tank 900mm long which cost me $49.00 ,maybe a campervan would be a cheaper alternative? LOL.
      Unbelievably if you’re doing a between tides clean and touch up you are not allowed to have any color appearing on the space under your boat, a big fine is the threat we face and the public in our area are reporting infractions to the harbor board, FFFUUUCK.

      • I don’t think you’re allowed to grid a boat and clean over the tide up this way, there used to be a grid in Marsden Bay down by Northport but it’s been taken away. Up on the hard stand they banned wet sanding of anti foul, you had to hire a vacuum sander instead but they don’t seem too worried now.

  6. During WW2 a German soldier sleeps with a French prostitute in Paris during the occupation. In the morning as he is leaving, he tells her in a thick German accent “In 9 months’ time you will have a strong, blond Aryan boy. You can call him Fritz, if you like”.

    She replies, “In two weeks’ time you will have a rash, you can call it Measels if you like”.

  7. Bob Lazar claimed to have worked at S4, an area close to Area 51 ( Dream Land). I remember once being in a heated debate about the futility of man trying to build space crafts that move faster than the speed of light ( light speed is not constant according to some). Having understood a LITTLE about space time, I said distortion of space time is the only rational way of space travel. I was asked to draw a diagram or describe how space time is distorted. I couldn’t. I had a cursory understanding in my mind, but that was it.

    Enter Bob Lazar who gives a computer simulation of what distorting space time may look like.@ 6.23

    Bob then goes on to show the craft he worked on and how this craft distorted space-time to travel using what he had previously described. @19.50

    This topic is important because from what I understand, it seems physics is breaking into two schools of thought – those who believe Newtonian physics holds most of the answers , and those who believe quantum theory is the way forward.

    The irony here is Isaac Newton was secretly an alchemist first and foremost.

    • I said distortion of space time is the only rational way of space travel.

      You are referring to Warp Drive, a drive that warps the fabric of space.

      It wasn’t until T T Brown demonstrated the principles underlying what would later be called Warp Drive in the 1950s that it made sense.

      It’s not called Warp Drive for no reason. But I would not say it’s warping time but space, but I could be wrong about the latter. In fact the principles of Warp Drive are now quite well known , and even discussed at length in various Star Trek series episodes, from TNG onward.

      UFOs travel at phenomenal speed, exceeding what we think of as the speed of light. And yes, the speed of light is neither fixed, nor is it the maximum speed. It is just the maximum speed we can currently measure with our antiquated technology.

      • T T Brown did some fascinating experiments. How annoying his government may have kept top secret work from him that may have allowed him to progress his works. They say ”compartmentalisation” of secret work doesn’t work. I call bs on that. If you watched the clip, Lazar stated he was only allowed to examine the part of the craft germane to his area of study. We are talking about a craft that had a 49ft diameter and was approx 16 ft high, That’s real ”compartmentalisation.

        • So a lot smaller than the Star Wars Battle Cruiser size and shaped craft that sailed over the NZ in the early 80’s, which thousands of people saw.

          Responses ranged from “Holy crap”, “Oh my God”, to the unfortunate many who saw but could not talk about it, for fear of being labelled “tin foil hatter”, or who couldn’t deal with what they saw and it constantly occupied their thoughts, or who would suppress it but them the slightest thing would set then off.

  8. 1ZB Mike Hosking interview with Shane Reti, Minister of Health.
    https://www.iheart.com/podcast/24837692/episode/131194083/
    7 minutes : 29 Nov. 2023 : 1ZB : Mike Hosking
    .
    The new Health Minister is vowing not to undertake major structural change to the health system, with the exception of disestablishing the Māori Health Authority.
    .
    The health system reforms, including the scrapping of the 20 DHBs and replacing them with Te Whatu Ora, was widely criticised by National in Opposition.
    .
    Shane Reti told Mike Hosking that the sector is tired.
    .
    He says the College of GPs have told him if he makes major changes, they’ll fight him, so there’ll be a period where they stabilise things and provide a clear direction of travel.

    .
    Hope he continues do those ambulance observer trips, & popping in unannounced to ED’s & where ever he feels where he needs to know more 🙂
    Sounds like Reti has sorted out his priorities and looking to get things done.

    Thanks in advance for taking out of moderation Ed.

      That cursed Whatu Ora advertised nigh on 200 jobs.
      Is this to take in the surplus Maori Health Authority?

      Was there a big sign up for those positions as now number is nigh on 150 jobs.

      Receiving promotional higher salary?
      Post-poning the layoffs, for MHA?
      Setting up to receive golden handshakes? Redundancy payments?

    • …the College of GPs have told him if he makes major changes…

      Yes the College of GPs will fight him, but GPs will applaud him, as most GPs have had a gutsful and many have taken early retirement. They have had enough of the bureaucracy, forced to learn Te Reo, forced to break the Hippocratic oath, forced to allow the govt to interfere in the doctor – patient relationship, forced to jab unknown shit into patients arms, or forced to keep quiet about harmful drugs and vaccines.

      Behind closed doors they all say the system is f*cked. And it is not only GPs, as specialists, hospital doctors and nurses are saying the same thing.

      There is a huge undercurrent of discontent. In fact most of the time their disgust or disapproval of what the Labour govt did to wreck health, keeps bleeding into patient conversations if they sense you are sympathetic to their cause.

      Most of them saw the pay rises as Labour bribes, but Labour did not deliver on half of what they promised. And it is the unions pushing the latest strikes. Yes, the nurses want more pay, but it is not about pay. The pay is only compensation for the daily bullying and crap system they work under.

      Climate Change “Experts” (like Shaw) erroneously represent that 87% of scientists agree with them, when in fact 99% disagree. Like those Climate Change “Experts”, the College of GP’s only represents the College of GPs, not the GPs themselves. GPs, doctors, and nurses are desperate for the change, desperate for the system to be fixed.

      The college was awarded $26.5 Billion in this years Labour budget, and in turn the college funds “approved” research projects. They will fight change because their gravy train tap may be about to be turned off.

      Just another bunch of troughers!!!!

        • Sorry ED, my bad.

          Anyway an update:
          REC (Royal College of GPs’) is committed to:
          • supporting and furthering the Purpose of the College, the Principles and Purpose of REC;
          • supporting research which aims to improve health outcomes and reduce health inequities in New Zealand;
          • Kaitiakitanga, (Service and Stewardship): a style of leadership that incorporates traditional Māori values such as Tika (proprietary), Pono (integrity), Aroha (compassion), Manaakitanga (hospitality), Mana (prestige) and Rato (service);
          • Whanaungatanga (Respect and Collaboration): the practices of respect and collaboration by acknowledging the interconnectedness of all things and inter-relationships with people;
          • Mana tangata (Diversity and Inclusion): the practises of respect, equity, diversity and inclusion;
          • Auaha (Innovation and Creativity);
          • respecting and implementing the dual heritage of the partners of Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the Treaty of Waitangi);
          • maintaining the highest standard of integrity of REC by funding projects that will benefit the science and practice of general practice, rural general practice, and rural hospital medicine in NZ;
          • supporting emerging and established researchers to undertake research in general practice, rural general practice, and rural hospital medicine; and
          • fully aligning to the College Strategic Intent, as amended from time to time.

          • 8. Appointment to REC
            REC shall comprise the following:
            • One sitting director of the College Board;
            • Two sitting members of the National Advisory Committee; (govt)
            • Two members of Te Akoranga a Māui;
            (Maori:The Study of the North) ?????????
            • The Head of Membership Services (or equivalent senior management team member as approved by the CE)

            Te Akoranga a Māui is the College’s Māori representative group. All College members who self-identity as Māori and have Māori whakapapa automatically belong to the group.

            So the Royal College of GP’s in not run by GPs, for GPs, but by govt and Maori to implement woke agendas.

    • Tony Ryall as Min of Health did unannounced visits.
      Reti has only been Minister for a day.
      He cant have done these as yet.

      In reality the 20 DHBs were not disbanded. There was another layer of Welly-shit-wood of control put in over them.
      They could be reactivated.
      They still operate in a district with their prior IT systems and HR systems.

      A legitimate census can help with resource and fund allocation of DHBs to ensure better load balancing. This has not been helped by two census takes (2018 and 2023) in a row were cocked up under liebour where numbers are not as accurate as they should be. Either do a census properly or not at all.
      Notional should do one in 2025 to get it back on the 5/10 year cycle or scrap them forever.
      After firing half the Stats Dept who have made themselves reductant by inaction.
      —————-

      I wonder if this new-Gov rework activity will extend to the truly disastrous polytechs that were in fact wrecked by centralisation and have lower enrolments now.
      Each of the polytechs previously had their own ‘culture’ and target market- some better than others -that actually did benefit from free market choices. Eg Southland had its free fees (uptick Tim Shadbolt) that attracted people to a depopulating city.
      This was wrecked under the filth and scum that is liebour.

      that filthy piece of shit Stephen Town quit his Auckland CEO contract early to take over the polytech disaster.
      He fucked up. They all fucked up there .
      Stephen Town was shitting on Tauranga as CEO before he came to Auckland and continued to do shit.
      He is quite a shitter where big piles of shit are left after he moves on.
      Now he is involved in Cyclone recovery. I will write to several Notional MPs this week asking that Town never ever gets any more taxpayer/ratepayer money.
      Let the shitter create his own shit in the private sector.

          While working as a palliative care researcher he became interested in the links between moral philosophy and our understanding of health, and began reading healthcare literature exploring this connection. He discovered a broad acceptance of the idea that a person’s values will shape their experience of and response to suffering, and yet that this relationship is scarcely mentioned in contemporary ethical discourse.

          He is currently developing a conception of ethics that shows the fundamental link between values and suffering, and which indicates how and to what extent life may retain value in the midst of suffering. This research draws on many different sources, including clinical experience, ancient and modern philosophy, and literature

            It sounds like the WHO health treaty has been put into abeyance, which was super urgent to do before 1st December

            So NZ has joined just a few countries not to come into alignment with the WHO directives.

        You are not entirely correct.
        Reti has not been frittering his time away on the opposition benches. He has been joining ambulance crews and serving shifts in EDs etc as a practising doctor. His battle-plan for healing the health system has been under consideration for some time.
        I am sorry frontlne staff are going to have to contend with more change, but I’m expecting good things from Dr Reti.

  9. Get him Winston!

    Willie Jackson defends state-funded media independence
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/11/28/willie-jackson-defends-state-funded-media-independence/

    Speaking to media on Monday after his swearing in, Winston Peters accused state-funded media organisations of a lack of independence from the previous government.

    “Well, we’ll see the speed at which TVNZ and RNZ – which are taxpayer owned – understand this new message. We’ll see whether these people, both the media and journalists – are they independent? Well, isn’t that fascinating, I’ve never seen evidence of that in the last three years,” he said.

    He then laughed, and said “you can’t defend $55 million of bribery, cannot defend $55m of bribery. Get it very clear”.

    Jackson, who became broadcasting minister in the Labour government two years after the fund was set up, said it was for media around the country, not just state-funded organisations.

    He denied the then Labour government had any influence over the media as a result.

    • Very good wg.
      Although I do think they are bit glib.
      “…… ‘It is time to stop seeing what you know and start knowing what you see.’ ……”
      What are they going to actually do about this.
      Ohh well, like me, another armchair critic? protestor? pamphlet deliver?

      In this thread there is a series of short twitter links on what the police said, what Tommy Robinson said. then the arrest, & note how the police more than arrested Tommy, but tortured & made him suffer.
      https://ysb.co.nz/have-your-say-1679/#comment-369876

      The police from those twitter clips showed that they are only “Obeying Orders” but from who? despite that claim of “Dispersal Act”.
      Would like a real time line of that Dispersal Act, as it possibly could be after the tweet about approaching Tommy R & demanding him to be gone at breakfast.
      So that call of the “Dispersal Act” of saying causing “harm & alarm” to other people seems absolute devious.
      Tommy R asked if others feel any distress or alarm with him being there & the reply seemed to be NO, no problem.

      NZ seems to enacting that form when they arrested Lucy Rogers in Auckland.
      …. Acting Superintendent Jacqui Whittaker said police were “required to engage with a female whose behaviour gave rise for concern”. ….

      • Thanks S1, Watched the Tommy tweets last night. He was law-abiding, peaceful and working as a journalist. The police did not arrest or question Sky News or others filming the protest, also there in the same capacity.

        The more the cops throw their weight around arresting those going about their lawful business the less support they and their authoritarian masters receive. Authoritarians tightening that rubber band one twist at a time until they lose all support from the public…

    An idea that does not leave a lot of time for family or education in the productive sense or any improvement to society in any way. …..

    …… ‘It is time to stop seeing what you know and start knowing what you see.’ ……
    https://rairfoundation.com/palestinian-solidarity-western-civilizations-undoing-real-agenda-pro/

    Like the homosexuals can not be free until the trans are free.
    The feminists can not be free until the trans are free.
    The trans can not be free until the Palestinians can be free, from the river to the sea.

    We think there will be change for the better, believing that the left eat their own, but they stay in “Solidarity” to be in the revolution.
    They are all looking to gain that intersectionality position to be higher up the totem pole.

    Their revolutions are in many ways, wars of destruction, whether of family, western values, etc…
    So in the theory to sacrifice now, for that “Build Back Better” which is way off in the distance.

    We must come to know what we are up against, and not go into knee-jerks, wasting time & energy.
    To be understanding of the system, then to be resolute & supportive in bringing up this knowledge.

      btw the dude is more white then the majority of kiwis, also lacking a barcoded face but he makes up for it by hanging a greenstone boulder around his neck.

      if it were 200yrs ago he woulda been thrown in the hangi pit already, hes quite ungratefull for whitey saving his life.

    • The Peter Principle :—
      The Peter Principle states that, if you perform well in your job, you will likely be promoted to the next level of your organization’s hierarchy.
      You will continue to rise up the ladder until you reach the point where you can no longer perform well.

      Seems to be superseded by the ESG requirements for DEI on another level that disregards even any sense of competence or merit.
      Now I figure it, ….. ->
      …. “Over the past few years, we’ve invested significant time, resources and energy into the development of a wide range of government reforms which are now proposed to be unravelled, such as Te Aka Whai Ora or the Māori Health Authority. But the hard work won’t be lost,” he said. ……

      ……. “We will be engaging on your behalf directly with the new Government to ensure our Rangatiratanga and rights under our settlement are embedded in future policies and work programs.” …..

      It seems like he is staying on that message.
      I doubt that Nga Tahu will go all out woke, as it is now a closed club.
      As he seems to have a nose for other people’s money.
      As I noted above how 200 jobs vacancies were opened up by Whaata Ora, to jump from the Maori Health Authority, MHA, to more iron clad contracts with lovely golden parachutes. while probably also to facilitate promotions, increased salaries, and not so rapid hit by the closing out of MHA.

    Redacted News

    The Siege of Avdiivka enters a deadly new phase for Ukraine’s collapsing military as NATO admits ammo supplies won’t be delivered until the Spring of 2024. Ukraine’s President Zelenksy has been making some big personal purchases in the form of luxury yachts ahead of his ouster into exile. Ukraine’s top general admits he has no plan for 2024 because there is nothing to plan for.

  13. Looks like Mark Mitchell has his work cut out for him. Another arrest, but also charged, from the Auckland rally.
    From the Free Speech Union

    “Following Jonathan’s email to you yesterday morning, we’ve had another protestor from Saturday contact us to say that he was also arrested, seemingly under similar circumstances.

    However, unlike Lucy, he wasn’t just detained- he has been charged. He will be in court on Thursday.

    Rest assured, the Free Speech Union will be there to providepro bono . From the information we have received, we see no reason to think his actions were in any way beyond what is protected by all New Zealander’s right to free speech.

    We are concerned there appears to be a pattern emerging here of police disregard for the right for all Kiwis to protest.

    From what we can see, the protestor, Daniel, went to central Auckland prior to the protest on Saturday, and asked Police if he was permitted to hold an Israeli flag there. He was advised against it but informed that it was allowed.

    When he later brought his flag along he was told to leave, and warned that if he returned with the flag he would be arrested. He returned without the flag and was arrested and charged with obstruction. As I mentioned, he will appear in court on Thursday. “

    New Zealander’s basic rights are to be protected by police, not defied. There must be accountability for police who fail to respect these fundamental freedoms.

    Frivolous charges such as ‘disruption of the peace’ and ‘obstruction’ have become commonplace in other countries, such as the United Kingdom, as ways to constrain and suppress legitimate speech rights. We must not allow that to become the case here.
    Jonathan and the team are working hard on these cases, ensuring that we have the full details and strong support for Lucy and Daniel. If you’re interested in some of the media coverage, I’ve listed them here.

    – NZ Herald article;
    – Stuff article;
    – Newstalk ZB article;
    – Kiwiblog article (which first broke the story)
    We are here to stand for all Kiwis’ speech rights, which have to include the right to protest. Phil, I’m putting my money where my mouth is and offering to represent Daniel pro bono. Our team are working hard on this, can I ask you stand with us and chip into supporting the costs to our team for these fights?

    October 20, 2023
    For attention of Commissioner Coster, Deputy Commissioner Kura, Superintendent Hassan, Inspector Srhoj, Inspector Ruth, Inspector Fergus, Inspector Laurenson ….

    https://nzdsos.com/2023/11/26/nz-police-let-down-people/

    ….. Inspector Srhoj, I remember you telling me at Wellsford Police Station when you visited me there that Police do not investigate Government and that if afterwards wrong doing was found to have been done then those responsible would be held to account.

    So the that time seems to be now.

    Well worth scrolling through to that well written letter and sharing it on.
    Noting he has gathered much info and OIA his own former bosses 🙂

    I wonder if Dan Picknell. Former Frontline Police Senior Constable of 19 years been asked to make any submission to the Covid Inquiry panel.
    That cherry picking panel have already stated they will not listen to the ones they deem as troublesome.

      Good to know that Tommy R after 24 hours in jail, is out on bail, though banned from London, with a Court case coming up.
      And to realize the met police wanted TR kept on remand, but the custody sergeants went against their orders in releasing him.

      Fuck the 20 met police to be holding him, handcuffing him and pepper spraying.
      A ruthlessness Vindictiveness that seemed to done under orders, when one considers the context.

      Pleased to see that he has recovered from that.
      So a good Happy Birthday Tommy R with your family.

      Now we have 2 similar people having been arrested in New Zealand in similar circumstances over the weekend.
      One being Lucy Rogers
      More on that & links back to more about the Tommy Robinson arrest.

    • What about the massive Government spend on Covid propaganda? A partly answered question under the Official Information Act reveals hair raising expenses incurred on getting the message out via the MSM.

      (This is only a part answer as the balance of figures up to mid 2023 has been referred to the MOH)

      Read in conjunction with the figures provided in R12’s comment above it’s no wonder that the MSM parroted everything the Mad Queen spouted.

      • Ardern spent millions on personal image managers and publicity experts using covid as a cover. In addition to the tens of millions spent on her team of bribed media activists. She had a full production crew follow her around taking glamour shots which would be further enhanced digitally.

        You would probably get a total figure of around two hundred million dollars for her personal promotion.

    • The media are trying to say that journalism money is over….. yeah right …..
      Filthy liars, as they have been receiving about $60,000 per year per journalist.

      …. In June 2023, the allocation phase of the Public Interest Journalism Fund (PIJF) officially came to an end.
      But noted how things were loaded up to carry over to 2026;
      …… And over its seven rounds of funding, it supported 73 projects, 219 roles and 22 industry development projects in total, supporting journalism across the length of the motu.
      While allocation of the fund is now complete, its legacy lives on some of those roles and projects are funded to run until January 2026. ……

      https://mch.govt.nz/media-sector-support/journalism-fund#:~:text=And%20over%20its%20seven%20rounds,to%20run%20until%20January%202026.

      This is the Journalism fund which may not be flowing at full gush, but some of it will be flowing into 2026.
      This is not the other little gusher of “NZ On Air” set up that they try to distract & cling to as being all good & ok.

      It will remain to be seen if Winston is on to this, and springs the trap good & hard how the journalist continued their deceits; 🙂

      • The funding needs to stop immediately and a full investigation launched. And no I don’t mean a big expensive one that will protect the guilty. I mean a small team of hard nosed investigators who have extensive powers. Including the general power to arrest and detain journalists for up to 28 days with no charges or legal representation, while they are waterboarded interviewed.

  21. I’ve never enjoyed reading the [fake] news so much.

    Apparently the few Maoris who don’t immediately drop dead – because the white man didn’t ban them from smoking – will begin a race war as the country burns to the ground from climate change. None of us will be able to find any government department because some of them will have cryptic and opaque names like: Department of roads, Ministry of Health, The Water Department, Hospital, and other nonsensical things.

  22. SIGNIFICANT CAPACITY NOW
    Several new wind farms connected to the grid and started operating this year – Turitea, Kaiwera Downs and Harapiki. This has increased capacity and set new records for wind generation. Two weeks ago, a record of 13.3% of weekly generation came from wind power. As more of Harapaki’s wind generation comes online and electricity demand eases during summer, the share of wind generation will continue to set new records. But individual facilities will be quite variable, although with a broad national set of wind assets, the overall sector should be able to maintain significant minimum capacity.

  23. For a failing Canadian Liberal PM who is being destroyed by the opposition in the opinion polls, there’s nothing as lame as to blame the common-sense conservative policies gaining traction with voters as ‘far-right-MAGA-Trump influence.’

    It is a disingenuous way of portraying your rivals as controlled by foreign forces right at the moment when your entire government is being wrecked by the investigation into Chinese influence in Canada.

    But, of course, that’s precisely what Globalist poster boy Justin Trudeau chose to do.
