  1. From Peter Williams communication yesterday “The taxpayers union have an oven ready plan to replace three waters.”
    What has been revealed about the scurrilous actions of the outgoing government is outrageous but not a surprise.
    It was too quiet in that transition period and that was because they were working away behind the scenes.
    Maybe I am misreading this but who are the taxpayers union to have a plan to replace three waters ?
    They mention something akin to the power setup which surely is yet another model to be avoided.
    First of all just return to what is in place and then let there be wide consultation about any changes.

    • i was thinking bout that yesty after getting pretty grumpy reading the scummery they done in an attempt to cement in 3 waters.

      keep them all employed but change their job description… i hear welly and a few other places are having trouble with leaky sewers. well cameras are expensive and just cant do the job that well paid public servants can so i rekon we have a team of 427 staff that can go down manholes and wade through turd piss and tammies inspecting our sewers…
      they can however resign and not cost the taxpayer another cent shall they dislike their new role 🙂

      • SB, many years ago, I had a very, very wealthy UK based client for whom I chartered a lot of ships. He appointed a new CEO for his companies who proved to be a pain in the arse, so my client decided to get rid of him, but because of his salary and employment conditions, it was going to be a very expensive exercise.

        So he appointed him to a new position, that of President in Charge of garbage disposal at the HQ and hugely increased his salary and benefits, gave him a chauffer driven vehicle to be used as the CEO, so desired.

        Well this went down like a lead balloon, the CEO resigned and took my client to an Employment Tribunal claiming he had been disadvantaged and demeaned etc.

        The Tribunal found in my clients favour saying that while the CEO position had changed, his position and title had not but his salary had hugely increased as had the benefits along with the chauffeur driven motor. Case dismissed, former CEO lost, The Tribunal also found costs in favour of my client,

        Job done, troublesome CEO gone and no payout. Desired outcome.

  2. “I think Coster has the potential to be a good leader” Mark Mitchell ,,3 bloody weeks and the backsliding and lying is already at full throttle with this drongo Mitchell, I hope this isn’t an indication of things to come.
    So what’s Mitchell got in mind for Cuddles, a fricking apprenticeship and learning experience while the thugs run wild on the streets ? FFFUUUCK.

    • HMM, we I did say the same a week or so back.
      without the socialist restraints and plain dumb policy of labour then coster may well rise to a much higher level of performance with his troops.
      If you want an example form the past we only need to look at what happened when Kiwi’stook control of our own army. Took control from the poms.
      Not a lot of difference between dumb pommy clunk heads and Labour. generational DNA.
      Freyberg of course made a huge difference. to the troops. Led from up front.
      IMHO we should give coster the opportunity to prove himself with a better leader.

      Companies are the same. Same people, better leader and company transformed.

    • ……“I think Coster has the potential to be a good leader”…….

      In politico speak that is the statement preceding “the Minister has lost confidence in the ability of the Commissioner to follow the policies of this government & awaits his resignation”!

      • Agree. After all this time if Coster has not reached the ability to be a good leader he never will. He should have been a good leader years before his was appointed as Commissioner, after all the top of the Police force should not need trainer wheels

        • Clearly, if you have a leader and your board( the govt. ), sets the policy then as the leader of the organization you must remain withtin the board guideleines.
          As with compamies and you can all name a collection of them Its not the staff but the policies set by the board.
          Hopw many CEO’ would not have jabbed thier staf compul;sorily had thioer board had the plain old guts to say they can choose?

          You guys need to start thinking better.
          Just like cindy made the rules that everyone in the house followed like pigs to skaughter.

      • ….has the potential to be a good leader

        Is clearly saying
        …he IS not a good leader as of now….

        Coster started as Top Pig in April 2020.
        He is more than 3.5 years into what I assume is a 5 year role.
        This is a message.
        Coster will wait to get paid out.

        We have the Precedent of Peter Doone and Hulun Klarkenfuhrer.
        She wanted him out. However was basically caught in a drink drive situation and pulled rank.

        From 2000
        …Police Commissioner Peter Doone has resigned his $275,000-a-year post but will stay on full pay until September, working in the Prime Minister’s department. ..
        …Mr Doone, aged 51, will be on leave until February 29, followed by a six-month contract in the Crime Prevention Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department working to reduce Maori crime…
        —-
        Reduce maori Crime.
        how did that work out then?

  3. I saw, in Parliament yesterday. the slack jawed Damien O’Connor yesterday, dribble on and demand Israel cease his claimed hostilities against the people of Gaza. I saw & heard Debbie Ngarewa-Packer, Rawiri Waititi, Chloe Swarbrick and Marama Davidson, all mutter in Parliament, the Palestinian, Israeli death call, “From the River to the sea”, but nowhere did I see or hear any of these weasels call for any sort of ceasefire from Hamas, or for any sort of compassion from Hamas. They all wanted Israel to cease hostilities, but not Hamas. There was no call for Hamas to be bought to book for their 7 October attack or the genocide they entered into in a sovereign states, territory. But that is not why you called.

    But what also got me was the lack of spine shown from the Speaker of the House, who let the repeated call for Genocide from Rawiri Waititi, Chloe Swarbrick and Marama Davidson, who all muttered at the end of their speeches the term “From the river to the sea…” No one objected to this inflammatory phraseology.

    Regretfully, I am rapidly forming the opinion that Gerry Brownlee will be a very weak and dud Speaker of the House. This is the ultimate Court of the Land and I have over recent years seen it degenerate into a Kindergarten. Even a simple thing like Parliaments dress code is just cast aside, and I offer you as evidence the dress sense of the fat poofter who was Labour’s former Finance Minister, Grant Robertson who looks like he has just left the public dunnies in Lampton Quay after a good rogering by a random and visiting arse bandit. No tie, shirt crumpled and no class. For those who though Gerry Brownlie would tidy Parliament up, the dream has not lasted very long.

    • You forgot to mention Golriz – i have never heard such condescension in questions that were nothing more than ideology dressed up in performative caring. I was surprised that Winston didn’t respond to her supplementary question on prosecuting genocide crimes that she would be well suited to assist any such defendants and that more selfies with said defendants would be in the offering.

  4. Agree AH.
    Watched part of question time yesterday and was disappointed with Brownlee. If he doesn’t take a strong stand against dress code and behaviour now then our parliament will continue to be a shadow of former self .
    A shambles.

      Where’s the tough talking Seeless,
      Where’s the tough talking Dwarf ,
      Where’s the tough talking Nude Nut ????????
      These 3 clowns are already bowing and scraping to the totally ineffective Cuddles Coster,,the most Woke incompetent police leader in our history, WTF is going on??

    • Was Gerry Brownlee ever anything else Dougl10? I am not sure that he was to be honest. Such a big fat man, He could have called them all to account with dress standards, and also attacking Israel. defending Hamas It is a disgrace, I wonder if lux flakes would say anything at all? Doubt it as he seems such a woke fcuk. It’s time the leaders stood for what they campaigned on and stopped this shit. The 400+ people on the three waters etc, bring a stop to it now, it’s all virtue signalling.
      Have a nice day all you contributors and those who read us and never comment. Be careful out there today.

        • The airport so called security is over the top bullshit that was implemented after the dubious events of 9/11 to exert control over us and start a series of US wars and invasions.

          The so called security at airport is for puffed-up rent a cop types.
          It does nothing effective but annoy passengers.
          Fly akl to CHC and there is all this puffed up crap.
          Then change planes to fly CHC to Invers and there is zero security.
          Just walk out on the tarmac and into the plane.
          All control freak shit like convid rules.

  5. I will save Viking the trouble.

    Dear Phil,

    Firstly, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank-you for your support. We could not have achieved what we did in the 18 months leading up to the Election without your unwavering drive and commitment. Volunteers are the lifeblood of a political party, and our DemocracyNZ volunteers are legends on another level. I am so deeply humbled to know you all.
    DemocracyNZ was formed on the fundamental principles of democracy, unity and equality for all New Zealanders. Thank you for being part of this mission with us.

    We travelled the country from north to south and east to west – meeting the most incredible Kiwis that love our country as much as we do. From the freshly baked goods to keep us going on the road, beds in your homes to crash for the night, funding various activities out of your own pockets, erecting hundreds of hoardings, to recruiting your whole family to get in on the action. And of course, the beautiful pounamu from our wonderful Hokitika volunteer, Hayley. I treasure these memories – and the generosity of everyday Kiwis like yourself in time, spirit and funding, absolutely blew us away. Thank you.

    The passion, the determination, the energy, and the commitment of people on this journey with us created a sense of community, hope, optimism, and belonging. That was the vision we had when we created DemocracyNZ. In that sense, we won.

    With the 2023 Election behind us now and the new Coalition Government’s feet firmly under the table, it’s a good time to regroup and think ahead. Many of our policies were used by NZF in the Election and have since been included in the Coalition Agreement. If Winston Peters lives up to the pledges he and NZF made to New Zealand prior to the Election, then that is a win for our country. We will be watching intently.
    We have agreed as a Party that our best role now is advocacy for the things that are important to us as a country and in line with our key pillars – freedom, family, and farming. We will do this from outside Parliament.

    As a result, we have decided to put the Party in its current form as a politically registered entity into hibernation.

    Our primary method of communication will now be on our Facebook pages – including the DemocracyNZ Facebook page and various candidate Facebook pages. We will park the website in the interim, as majority of our engagement has been from Facebook – so don’t be surprised if you don’t see it online!

    The DemocracyNZ community we built will continue. Thank you so much again for being part of it with us. Our volunteer chats will still continue, as it does create a good connection point for our volunteers – who are core to the DemocracyNZ community.

    I hope you have a safe and relaxing festive break, and a wonderful year ahead. Thank you so much again for everything you do.

    Warmest regards,

    Matt King.

      • Well we don’t make curtains and have no showroom of any kind.
        I don’t denigrate your business so why do you want to do that to mine?
        You have never to my knowledge engaged us to do any work for you.
        Very likely you don’t even know what a curtain is. There are at least 7 different types.

        Our google reviews speak for themselves
        Like everything you don’t please everyone and I can say that those dissatisfied would never be pleased despite all that we do.
        We never remove them so they are what they are.
        I might add that a lot of customers don’t want to go and give us a review but will email us to say to the staff about the work we have done. Probably just as many.

        So I would appreciate if you could take notice that I am asking you nicely to refrain from disparaging My company. Its 18 years of hard work. We employ 12 people and we are the biggest in our business and will grow more next year.

        This year has been a tough one, more so as I lost the Love of my life to what really was a lack of enquiry in the first instance by the Medico’s. Medico’s who are still struggling with the shit those arsewipes called MP’s inflicted upon our country. Same people you voted for.

        For your consideration.

    • I refer you to my comment on Revs post above.
      That’s what you now have.
      Nothing has changed other that the places people sit in.
      Call me in 2 years time once the socialists have removed all your freedom and all your money and your kids and grandkids have moved to Australia and all your friends and relatives have either died from the jab or are to sick to work and your ACC is gong bust.
      Once the banks and the govt. has given you a social score and resticts what you can do and where you can go. You know that’s what’s going to happen and you go to it like pigs to the slaughter house thinking you are going to utopia.

      When your nice area where you live has been filled with the indolent and lazy in state houses as is happening from one end of the country to the other and when there are more immigrants from Musilm countries than there are born and bred Kiwi’s.

      You can shout and yell all you like but that’s what you voted for and unsurprisingly you are about to get.
      Depsite winston adopting most DNZ policies he ain’t going to make a difference at all. Other than spending more money. His lot simply don’t understand what was the lynch pin to those policies.

      So put this in your reminder calendar for 2 years and then lets talk again.
      Oh and just look up what Peter Williams said of what has been done behind the scenes, look at the humanrights shit. forproff of what you are looking at ahead.

      nude nut, a good company(WEF man) follows orders, Seymour who welched on his supporters and supported and still does support the jab and winston the great come back man.
      The Three Wise Men.
      what a fucking joke.

      • Australia is on the same trajectory for globalist control and policies.
        NZ is ahead -a wee bit – but UK is moreso under globalist decline than NZ.
        Canada is on a clear downward trajectory.
        Ireland- we have seen their globalist response to people speaking out.

        AU- Two states controlled by liebor in AU are well down the globalist path – Victoria and Queensland.
        Vic since 2013; QLD since 2015.
        I dont know enough about WA.
        NSW had a liberal State Govt until recently so the effect is delayed, not eliminated.

        There is nowhere to run to except Some Asian countries or some East Euro countries.

      • Yes if you purchased and sold within 2 years that is unusual.
        It can occur with relationship breakups so the money loss is not the only game in town.

        But hey lets cherry pick from NZ Media biased articles.

        If you sold within 2 years you can be damned sure under the bright line test the goo-mint will not pay you ‘reverse tax’ for your loss..
        More like “sorry for your loss, and we will tax you on again when you make a gain, though.”

        If Notional were decent -ha ha -they would bury the bright line tax introduced by the shithead johnny keys .
        It was brought in to address a problem – he , keys- created.
        He swarmed the place with third world immigrants to become students, uber drivers , gas station staff and liquor store workers.
        Nothing productive.

        the only ones really who were productive were the Filipinos going to the dairy productive sector.
        So Key open the floodgates to raise total GDP, but lower GDP per capita.
        He took no steps to ensure requisite housing was built to match or exceed the population change.
        This made his banker mates waaaay richer and he was rewarded with a Top directorship at NZ’s largest bank.
        And they talk about the the Cook islands being corrupt.

        This issue has still not been addressed in a country that is larger than England with one fourteenth the population. We have lots of land and artificial house prices .

  6. Justice Minister Paul Goldsmith,
    Will it be just tinkering around the edges with the Human Rights Commission?

    ….. “It’s the appropriate way to go but we’re going to be making changes across the Human Rights Commission,” he told Newshub. ….

    This is another coup of setting the agenda by the bureaucrats.

    …. The chief executive of the Human Rights Commission, Meg de Ronde, says the organisation is an independent crown entity and its ability to promote human rights without interference from the government is essential. ….

    Does Paul Goldsmith see that he has been usurped, & cucked?
    Will so many of the public service & these government departments that are doing similar practices as if it is an orchestrated coup that seems to be well supported by the academia & media.
    Activist Judiciary will be the next stage, to give legitimacy to activists that will then be backed by protestors.

    Will National see what they are up against, or just crumble?
    Support from ACT? NZFirst? to be much more than blunderbuss shots? as many can see this is this is an orchestrated campaign, to overwhelm on so many fronts.

    The whole lot need to be fired, not only because they are useless, but this over reaching into the trough to progress their marxism.

    • The point is of that ‘coup’ campaign, is it all an orchestrated “huff & puff”?
      Has any one of the “3 wise men” built a brick house?
      With a roaring fire and a good size chimney.
      Have they got the nous, fortitude, skill to stand, gather in the “GroundSwell” “StopCoGovernance” and many others?
      Separately we will be hung, but recognize that our differences are really minor, so do not splinter & divide.
      There is a far more of us than them.

  7. Chris Luxon goes to a science exhibition & is shown a time machine which can see 100 years into the future. The man in charge invites him to ask any question he likes.

    Luxon asks “What will Australia be like in 100 years time?”

    The machine whirrs & beeps, goes into action & gives a printout, Which the man reads:

    “The country is in good hands under the new Prime Minister. Crime is non-existent, there is no conflict, the economy is healthy. There are no worries.”

    He has another go “What will China be like in 100 years time?” Another print out:

    “The country will be the world’s leading economy & everyone there will enjoy the highest standard of living in the world”.

    Luxon then asks “What will New Zealand be like in 100 years time?” The machine whirrs & beeps & goes into action. The man gets a printout, but he’s just stares at it.

    “Come on”, says Luxon “What does it say?”

    The man replies, “I don’t know ! It’s all in bloody Maori!”

  8. There was a doctor who worked hard in his private practice and had only one vice – a weakness for almond daiquiris. Down the road from his clinic was a bar, and at noon every day, the doctor would enter the bar, greet Dick, the bartender, and enjoy an almond daiquiri before returning to his practice.

    Dick always had the doctor’s drink ready for him at noon. However one day as he was collecting the ingredients, he found that he was out of almonds. What could he do? The doctor was due in a couple of minutes! Desperately he searched his cupboards and finally found a bag of hickory nuts. These will have to do he thought, and made up the drink with seconds to spare.

    In came the doctor who picked up his drink and took a sip. The bartender watched as his customer grimaced and put the drink down, saying,

    “This isn’t an almond daiquiri, Dick!”

    “No,” replied the bartender. “It’s a hickory daiquiri, Doc.”

  9. 25 year old just drops dead on the beach
    I wonder why?
    ———————–
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/301023280/young-father-died-of-asphyxia-by-sand-while-walking-on-raumati-beach-with-his-2yearold
    A young Wellington father died from “asphyxia by sand” after he fell face down on Raumati Beach, Paraparaumu, while walking with his two-year-old daughter.
    Andre Bradshaw, 25, was found unresponsive on the beach by a member of the public on June 28, with his daughter Skyla at his side.
    His shocked family didn’t understand the cause of the Wellington builder’s …sudden death,

    forensic pathologist …also found sand within his lungs and evidence of pulmonary edema.
    Bradshaw’s cardiovascular disease and prior seizure-like disorder were significant contributory conditions that reasonably explained his sudden collapse and subsequent asphyxiation
    —————————

    Yeah, I guess these things happen to 25 year old builders.

        • He was alive when he hit the sand.
          He would have been struggling to breathe though, since he was drowning from the fluid in his own lungs, with a pulmonary edema.
          he was gasping to breathe, face down, and ingesting sand.

          He was dying when he hit the sand and would have died in minutes without high grade medical attention.
          The media headline is , as usual , misleading clickbait.
          the medical event killed him, not the sand.

    • Like the funeral a year ago locally, of hard working young fellow, similiar age, suddeny leaving a young family.
      Not even a smoker. A traveller between NZ & Australia.
      Everybody said it was in the family genetics. Not a word about the vaxx status.
      I was more saddened by those remarks.

      After all the father had suddenly died in his late 50’s, a smoker, and then reasonably portly.

      So what could speed up those genetics by about 25 years.??
      Sure something caused problems with the heart, to be the similar as his father.
      Look any further? Tissue samples taken? Pathologists consider what they may be looking for?

      • The interesting thing to watch will be life insurance premium rates which have consistently fallen for 20 years or more. Disability and health insurance premiums have consistently risen over the years and will likely continue to do so even without any effect from the vax injuries.

  10. So Helen Pos Harris says on Sean Plonkers show that only about 10 people have had serious adverse effects from the vax.
    Interesting then that to date ACC have had 3,954 claims and accepted 1,585 as at July.
    https://www.acc.co.nz/assets/covid-19-vaccination-claims-refresh-july-2023-ipa-12761.pdf
    By the number of rejected claims you can surmise that getting ACC to accept a claim is far from easy.

    On Carm which stopped collecting data a year ago.
    64,825 adverse event reports including
    3,688 deemed SERIOUS
    (meaning hospitalised, serious health impact, and/or permanent injury or death)
    1078 – myocarditis and heart attacks
    136 – stroke

    Credibility of Pos Harris- zero.

  11. Barry Young is an enemy of Te Pahti Media Scrum

    They are onto him like they were after local body candidates in 2022

    Some extracts:-
    ——–
    Scattered among posts about financial markets and computer programming are occasional anti-trans comments,
    ———
    In one comment he calls former Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern a “truly disgusting human being” and likens the Covid-19 response to that of Nazi Germany.
    ———
    In another post, he calls Ardern’s successor Chris Hipkins “scum of the Earth”
    ———
    After he was released on bail, he also spoke to Kelvyn Alp, the founder of far-right media platform Counterspin
    ——-

    Well I trust they are not going to that evil disseminator of misinfo, X – formerly known as Prince, or Twitter or something.

    Sounds like Barry is a decent enough bloke.
    When the NZ media filth hate you that truly is a badge of honour and a sign you are on the right track.

  12. If you support Free Trade you ultimately support rule by Oligarch, rule by grey talentless managers. Free trade is a massive scam, the state must protect its nascent industries and allow them grow. We live in a world dominated by the managerial elite. Leftists are allowed to cavort in our perverted State. Free trade means you will take the vax and eat bugs, and worship your black phone screen waiting for the next cause, the next thought opinion to arrive.

  14. What’s COP28 really all about ?

    https://www.cfact.org/2023/12/07/cop-28-is-a-really-big-fossil-fuel-trade-show/

    “The beginning: “What was supposed to be a big deal climate treaty negotiation has morphed into an enormous trade fair. Even funnier the focus is on fossil fuel production which the UN treaty is supposed to curb.

    COP 28 has an astounding number of attendees, with over 100,000 official registrants, more than twice the previous record. Meanwhile the number of actual climate treaty negotiators is somewhere in the hundreds, so maybe 1% at most. The negotiations area is small and walled of, while the general attendees area is huge. What do the other 99% (or 99,000 people) do as the two week session rolls slowly by? They talk to each other and a lot of that talk is apparently business related because a lot of the attendees are reportedly corporate or trade professionals doing deals.

    Several green observers have complained that the COP has turned into a trade show. Fossil fuels is a huge and growing industry, but it is hilarious that the conference supposedly designed to curb that industry is in fact facilitating it big time. After all this is a chance for business types to talk to energy policy and trade officials from most of the countries in the world, especially the energy rich ones. Many government delegations likely include trade teams looking for fossil fuel action. Plus the business people do deals with each other. Fossil fuels are truly international.

    For example, oil rich Nigeria lists a whopping 1,411 attendees. Of these 422 are government funded while the other 989 likely include a lot of business types. This is a lot of deal making horsepower. Other energy rich African countries also sent big delegations, including Kenya, Tanzania and Morocco. Same for big energy producers around the world.”

    • NZTA
      They have wiped the pricks name off the Directors website already.
      I call that quick. Pity they can’t build roads like that.
      They go slow and still have to rebuild them (conned by the CONtractors)
      We can see just how good Ministry of Works was, and it copped so much flak.
      ——-
      Here is the bad news :- Dec 2022, a year ago.
      ” Reynolds is an experienced chair and public sector leader and served seven years as chief executive and secretary for the environment at the Ministry for the Environment.
      Transport minister Michael Wood says he’s confident Reynolds has the right skills to lead the board for the next three years.
      “Waka Kotahi requires a chair that is a highly experienced governor who can navigate complex environments, drive the development of strategy, build consensus and effectively engage with a diverse range of stakeholders.”
      —-

      Well unpacking that.
      -An endorsement from Mickey Woods has to be fatal.
      -‘seven years as chief executive and secretary for the environment at the Ministry for the Environment’. – there is a useless jobsworth if ever there is one

      – Mickey W says NZTA needs…” a governor who can navigate complex environments, drive the development of strategy, build consensus and effectively engage with a diverse range of stakeholders”
      ah no, you need to be able to build strong roads efficiently; and repair existing ones efficiently with a fiduciary responsibility towards taxpayers money. .
      ——————
      So the Board
      -Cassandra Crowley – Acting Chair – Cassandra is a chartered accountant (Fellow), barrister and solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand and a member of the Institute of Directors.
      -David Smol – long term pubic servant
      -Catherine Taylor – Catherine is a chartered accountant
      -Victoria Carter – lawyer
      -Hon. Tracey Martin =- a politician
      -Ngarimu Blair -a Maori appointment
      and finally, wow , we get there
      -John Bridgman – John has over 35 years’ experience in engineering and project management roles across Australasia and Asia.
      But he is also … Chair of City Rail Link Ltd and is a Director of Kianga Ora – Homes and Communities.
      Hardly a harbinger of success.

      So a mob that is meant to build roads is half full of accountants an lawyers.
      One out of the (previously) eight directors who has engineering knowledge.

      That is pathetic.

    • Met office have figured that in the last six years it is Ok for Stats Dept to be useless and run (??) not one but TWO consecutive census counts that are a dead loss, but also Elections to be so shitty that the auditor General has to step in do you think the Met office really needs accurate numbers ?

      They have been useless since forever

      I use https://www.metvuw.com/forecast/forecast.php?type=rain&region=nzni
      and
      https://home.nzcity.co.nz/weather/?fm=tm

      The Met service Rain radar can be OK for 6 hours out when it is immediately adjacent

      I get monthly business emails from Busines.govt.nz
      I signed up years ago
      They have about 5 or 6 topics.
      This month it is :-
      Prepare for El Niño
      This summer El Niño will increase the chances of more frequent and extreme adverse weather events. Now is the time to prepare your business.

      oooh, be scared.

      Just look at NIWA rolling quarterly foreskins/forecasts and take the opposite. They don’t even seem to get it correct occasionally , with a bit of luck. Sure not science.

      • NIWA couldn’t forecast daybreak. Weather predictions basically answer a simple question. Will it rain or won’t it?

        I doubt that even when those are the only options that they could get it right 50% of the time.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qD4PjPnxeas

    We need a similar witch-hunt in NZ. The SIS should point out any pro Hamas ( likewise Israeli) bureaucrats and have them expelled from the public service if they attend rallies or post in favour of Israel or Palestine.

    The problem is we can’t sack fuckwit politicians who do similar.

    • Tesla’s were already shit cars coming second to last in reliability behind Land Rover. Now they are failing hard in the technology stakes and are losing ground rapidly to other manufacturers. The Cybertruck is likely to be an epic fail.

      Musk is a conman spruiker who preys on pretentious assholes. None of his companies make money. The money comes from tax payer handouts. That is his real genius. None of his companies have invented or revolutionised anything. His celebrated Space X is at the level the USSR was in the 1950’s. That is when they first were going to low earth orbit. Before Musk was born they were driving electric cars around on the fucking moon.

      Musk rats represent the lowest form of life. Tribal, dishonest, ignorant, elitists who think they are shit hot.

  18. Another drunken slut crying rape to cover her tracks. None of the facts suggest rape. They clearly show she got pissed and fucked him then spent the night in his office as witnessed by the cleaner who came in. She got the guilts and a major come down when she met the boyfriend and came up with a rape story.

    “His ACT Supreme Court trial for sexual assault was aborted last year due to juror misconduct. The charge against Lehrmann was later dropped altogether owing to concerns about Higgins’ mental health.”

    So she’s crazy and the jury was corrupt. But hey lets go for it.

    She should get 10 years prison with no parole.

    • Have to actually agree here. I have been following from the start.
      This is very political in AU.

      She lied. Simple.
      Then the kangaroo court case was aborted and the liebor goo-mint arranged a payment for her of AUD 2.3 million which after tax and other deductions was net $1.9 million .

      This event happened while Higgins was a Staffer for the Liberals, in government at the time.
      Liebor under sleazy Albanese have made sure it is front and centre.
      They arranged the payout – as thanks for the scandal – on the grounds that Higgins ‘could never work again’ she was sooooo traumatized.
      Bullshit.
      Where is Higgins ‘working’ now a wee while later.. at the UN in Switzerland
      A place such a shitty person belongs.

      It does not help that the accussed, Bruce Lehrmann, is a real plonker. A grade.
      It is messy all round but there was no rape.
      Higgins got a book deal and agent before she even went to the cops.
      She got teevee churnalist Lisa wilkinson involved and wilkinson has been discredited.
      Wilkinson is married to that pain in the ass, bandana wearing tosser , ex rugby player Peter FitzintoSimmon

      Viking you are wrong.
      This has been a draw out event and full headline situation for 2 years in AU.
      Hard not to miss it.
      She was not raped.

  20. New Zealand is joining other nations, including Britain, in condemning Russian government malicious cyber-attacks.

    In a statement released this morning, Minister Responsible for the Government Communications Security Bureau Judith Collins said this country was backing a position taken by the UK and other allies.

    The UK government said earlier that malicious cyber activity was affecting its domestic democratic institutions and processes, as well as civil society organisations. It blamed Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB).

    “New Zealand stands with the UK in calling out this behaviour,” Collins said.

    “New Zealand does not tolerate attempts to undermine the integrity of democratic institutions through cyber or any other means.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/gcsb-minister-judith-collins-condemns-russian-cyber-attacks/CJUY6FLLTZCSLALUSUSPRCZCQA/

    • New Zealand training Ukrainians to use guns supplied by New Zealand plus ammunition to shoot & kill Russians, no matter the rights or wrongs is a form of a declaration of war on Russia.
      Plus there are number of intelligence officers to observe satellite data sent to Europe, (5 Eyes), all the better to target Russians for NATO Ukrainian purposes, for killing effects.
      New Zealand may feel self righteous & virtue, but that is a declaration of War.

      So NZ is in a war with Russia, which means there can be consequences, for what ever reason.
      So if a Russian hacker wants to hack, vandalize or make some money for himself in Russia, then it is totally ignorantly stupid to expect Russians to do anything about it.
      NZ has made themselves sitting ducks, and the season is open!

      Will New Zealand be protected? Considering how stretched the USA is now through NATO to Ukraine, & now through the Middle East & now South America.

      China & Taiwan? though I doubt it, still it will be teased out.

      Venezuela now looking to take a piece of Guyana. To note Venezuela is pretty well in CCP China’s debt.

    Looks like your mate has chickened out of rehab gain:

    ……”The alcohol detox stage is the first step in treating alcoholism. During this time, alcohol is completely flushed from your body. Withdrawal symptoms typically subside within approximately 1-2 weeks after starting detox; however, this could take longer depending on the severity of your AUD”…….

    ……..”Here’s a breakdown of the alcohol detox process:

    First Six to Twelve Hours

    The initial symptoms of alcohol detox are mild, but can quickly begin to worsen as time goes on. Some of the early withdrawal symptoms include headaches, anxiety, shaking, nausea and irritability.
    Day One

    As you approach the end of the first 24 hours of detox, symptoms may become increasingly severe. Alongside the effects felt from the first 12 hours, additional symptoms may involve disorientation, hand tremors and seizures.
    Day Two

    Similar to the first full day of detox, the most painful symptoms will continue into the second day. Hallucinations and panic attacks are common during this time as your body rids alcohol from its system.
    Days Three To Seven

    For the remainder of your first week in detox, different withdrawal symptoms may come and go. This is also the timeframe where you’re most at risk for life-threatening symptoms such as delirium tremens.”…….

    …….”The alcohol detox stage is the first step in treating alcoholism. During this time, alcohol is completely flushed from your body. Withdrawal symptoms typically subside within approximately 1-2 weeks after starting detox; however, this could take longer depending on the severity of your AUD”……….

    • Nah nasska he chickened out. He’s in the denial stage and his reasoning ability is affected by the constant boozing. At this stage he wouldn’t even remember what sober feels like. It actually takes a good 10 days sober for the brain to balance out even for reasonably mild boozers. So if you have a few once a week, you are never unaffected. Heaps of people are in that cycle, or the dreaded “moderation” one of a few every single day.

      • It must be truly painful being wrong all the time eh birdy boy. No wonder you are an angry pathetic cot case.👇
        “In his latest column headlined simply “Really?” former RBNZ official Michael Reddell points out that while RBNZ changed its forecast track for its official cash rate (OCR) in its latest monetary policy statement (MPS) late last month, it didn’t bother to change its quarterly inflation forecasts accordingly.”

        RBNZ’s forecasts now incorporate a better-than-even chance of a hike sometime after the March quarter next year and they show the earliest likely cut from the current 5.5% level as coming between the June and September quarters of 2025.

        👉But financial markets don’t believe it either and continue to price in no OCR increases and one-and-a-half OCR cuts in 2024.

        RBNZ’s own MPS shows “inflation is on the brink of collapsing,” Reddell says.

        And indeed, RBNZ’s own quarterly CPI forecasts for 2024 barely budged between the August and November MPS’ – the only change was to raise the September 2024 quarter rate up a fraction to 1% from 0.9% in August.

        What the MPS said

        The December quarter of 2024 is projected to fall to 0.4%, unchanged from August, and, on an annualised basis, that would be an undershoot, reaching 1.6%, below the mid-point of RBNZ’s target range of 1% to 3%.

        As Reddell points out, if you believe that monetary policy works with a 12 to 18-month lag, that means RBNZ’s actions up to May this year – it began raising the OCR from 0.25% in October 2021 and has held it at 5.5% since May – have already done the required work.
        Our picture is similar to that of other countries, particularly the US, where markets believe the Federal 👉Reserve has done hiking and will likely cut its key rate three times next year.”
