  1. The embattled president of Harvard University Claudine Gays entire career is based on Plagiarism ,fraud and lies, there is now no doubt that Cnutface Ardern is in the right place, maybe the horrible bastard will apply for Gays job if she resigns.

      Questionable to me as it seems to be written by a European elite, but at least he is starting to see these dangerous agendas, as it deeply entrenched in Europe also.

      The WEF policies & agendas also runs very deep in New Zealand, in many quiet ways, and is just as insidious & dangerous as Ardern.

      An interesting article by Trotter who seems to ne increasingly seeing ‘the light’ and turning from his lefty ways. Long may that process continue, but I wonder how long it will be before his own turn on him and we see the MSM, the NZLP et al baying for his demise….

    • Saggy, what shits me, is that for all these claims at this Tribunal accepts and hears, there never seems to be a counter argument, there never seems to be rebuttal from the Government, Historians, the Public, no one. The Claimant (always a Maori or an IWI) put up a Claim and it always without exception it seems, the Waitangi Tribunal finds in favour of the Claimant. I do not recall otherwise.

      I guess it is a very, very faint hope that someone, like the Government of the day, will step up and represent the people of this country with counter claims or evidence to refute such claim.

  2. Ruthless-Empire Souljah Reign Rhind Shephard Wall’s mother, must have really loved that little one.//

    Now months after she claims she knew who killed her son. Well if this disgraceful piece of scum, knows now, she knew on the 22nd October when the child died and she at that point, should had told Plod.

    In the meantime Plod should have had the careers of this child up before the Court on failure to provide a safe haven for Baby Ruthless along with any other charges they can think of, that will stick.

    Plod stating that they “continue to engage with all of the people that were living at the address at the time of Ru’s death, and that includes a number of interviews” is just pathetically weak bullshit. Time is long overdue for the screws to be tightened on the scum who were looking after this little child and the heaviest book found, to throw at them all.

  3. They need to stop Ardern’s immigration policy and slash numbers to a fraction of what they currently are. Just as releasing billions in inflation causing debt – this policy was designed to inflate house prices for the benefit of speculators. Total economic and social devastation is upon us and it needs to stop now.

    https://www.interest.co.nz/public-policy/125658/david-hargreaves-wonders-how-able-and-indeed-willing-new-government-will-be

    KiwiBuild. A name once loaded with hype and promise – that became a synonym for failure and derision.

    I believed that the failure of this policy was the biggest failure in New Zealand’s history of a ‘signature’ government policy. Light rail pushed it, but wasn’t for me in the same league.

    But, ultimately I think the recently demised Labour Government should be remembered for the migration timebomb they set ticking (ticking very quickly and loudly) and which may be about to blow up in the new Government’s face.

    Do you know what is so bad about what that Labour Government did?

    It is the very fact that they told us as a country we SHOULD NOT do what they were about to do again.

    I’ve mentioned it before, but it is worth mentioning ad nauseum that in May 2021 in a speech on behalf of the then Immigration Minister Kris Faafoi delivered by the then Economic and Regional Development Minister Stuart Nash, Labour outlined a reset of this country’s immigration policies.

    Nash said:

    “When our borders fully open again, we can’t afford to simply turn on the tap to the previous immigration settings. That path is a continuation of pressures on our infrastructure, like transport, accommodation, and downward pressure on wages.”

  4. For better or worse have been watching episodes of “The Crown” on Netflex- Looks like they can now make a new episode –
    “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been named as showbusiness’ biggest losers of 2023, after their belittling on South Park, being dropped from their $20 million Spotify deal and endless “whiny” self-regarding projects.
    The Royal couple’s names appeared in the Hollywood Reporter’s “brutally honest rundown” detailing who had the worst year in entertainment.”
    Have been quite enjoying reading the comments – boy, are they scathing. Not one nice word to say about them.

If you follow those ratings for a while, it’s not hard to see why the world is the way it is. Very little intellectual grunt needed to watch such movies.

      • They might as well send King Canute out there to stop it. We had the same drama over the fan worm arriving. That was supposed to take out everything but you will never find it outside of the marinas – Marsden Cove is full of it but there is none in the harbour. I suspect this will invade big time in certain areas and then stop. They have already banned anchoring in the Bay of islands from Rawhiti right through Parekura Bay and I imagine Assassination Cove right round to Tapeka Point will be next. No point in going up there. I think it’s more about control than solving a problem.

  5. Am feeling very pleased that I decided to vote for New Zealand First. Winston and his Party are doing everything we could have possibly hoped for, has only been 2 months since the election but there has been more promising good news in that time than in the last 3 years. Without doubt the quinella with ACT has led to the Coalition being more aggressive than many expected.
    To all the doubters, just sit back, stay quiet and enjoy the ride.

    They are Ardernistas and followed her every command, most diligently. These two also have just within the last few weeks, both have had COVID booster shots. It wards off the Chinese throat clap, don’tcha know.

    Well, we are not now going to meet them in Taupo for lunch on Saturday.

    They both have COVID.

    • Ross, by claiming Maori never ceded Sovereignty is bullshit. This is just saying Maori are dumb and did not know what they were doing.

      Maori knew what they were doing, I deal with Maori day in and day out, through my work. I can tell you they are not dumb now and they were not dumb then, they were not that dumb they did not know what they were signing. This (we did not cede Sovereignty crap) is being twisted by the Elite for their own nefarious purposes.

      • The Maori were lucky to catch the English. The Romans stumbled upon the Druids, and despite their tolerance of religion, decided to wipe them out, and with no written language, they are gone.

        That article good summary. The first Maori Dictionary was written by an English Reverend Williams in 1844. Can see how they are trying to re-write the 1840 document with some good old fashioned revisionist white-boardism.

        Winston’s got em. These newly minted feather dusters are a noisy annoying minority with no mandate, bit of a joke.

  8. Criticism for saying “no thanks I don’t need your help”. More woke idiot grifters.

    Jennifer Aniston sparks backlash with ‘disrespectful’, ‘flippant’ attitude towards intimacy coordinators on set
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/lifestyle/2023/12/jennifer-aniston-sparks-backlash-with-disrespectful-flippant-attitude-towards-intimacy-coordinators-on-set.html

    For context, an intimacy coordinator liaises between actors and the production team to ensure everyone is comfortable and advocated for during “nude, simulated sex or other intimate and hyper-exposed scenes”, according to the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA).

    In the interview, Aniston said she and Hamm were offered a coordinator but ultimately refused, with the Friends alum implying that “seasoned” actors from “the olden days” of Hollywood didn’t need the support or guidance.

    Since the interview was published on Monday, Aniston’s quotes have continued to attract negative feedback from commentators online, with several claiming the actor had “minimised” the work of intimacy coordinators and their important role in the industry.

    “Having seen firsthand the kind of work an intimacy coordinator actually does, it actually deflates the awkwardness and helps actors build boundaries and trust with one another,” another wrote. “If it’s not for her that’s fine, but it’s legitimate work that can be effective for performance.”

    Others argued that in today’s climate, intimacy coordinators should be “a requirement, not an option”.

    So they found an old Amazon Dash button, fixed it to his desk and told him it was the Nuclear Button and that he should only press it in the event he wanted to start an all out war.

Soon they’ll be back up to where they were when they went up a lot, before they went down a little, and they they’ll go up a liitle more and a little more. For 7 or 8 years typically. And then the little mores will be a lot more, and so on. . .

  11. Looks like InterIslander’s “transformational” investment became a bit pricy

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2023/12/govt-makes-significant-announcement-on-future-funding-of-interislander-project.html
    The Government won’t contribute significant new funding to KiwiRail to address cost escalations involved in the replacement of the Interislander ferry fleet.

    In light of that decision, KiwiRail will now wind down the project and review plans for the Cook Strait connection. An alternative long-term solution could take years to develop, the agency said.

    It was considered a “transformational investment in critical infrastructure” that was expected to “generate significant tourism, economic and environmental benefits”.

    In a statement on Wednesday afternoon, Finance Minister Nicola Willis said KiwiRail had asked for an additional $1.47 billion – some of which had been agreed to in principle by the previous Government – to address cost escalations associated with harbourside infrastructure.

    The bulk of the cost escalation was related to upgrading harbourside infrastructure in Wellington and Picton to accommodate the new ferries.

    • WG, the best thing that KiwiRail and the NZ Government could do, is give someone like Stena Line a Swedish Ferry Operator with a fleet of very modern ferry’s, the right to operate the Cook Strait for say 30 years. Stena would fund the new required shore side facilities and the cost of this would not fall on the NZ Taxpayer. Stena, Fred Olsen Line or some organisation like that, are hugely efficient in Europe, would jump at the opportunity and provide an excellent service for New Zealanders. But this would show up KiwiRail to be the useless ferry operator they are and we can’t have that so it won’t happen.

    • Be careful what you wish for. The ferries have a torid history with all manner of political interference involved in their running.
      The other guys are owned by and oversea’s operator and they have problems and well.
      Will be interesting to see willis plan.
      But what are here credentials for being a finance minister with a socialist degree in nothing.
      If she/they are not going to fund the public owned company who is and what alternatives has she?
      As I warned another ruth (all Mouth and trousers) operator.

      In the past the harbour boards carried the can for wharf infrastructure. Perhaps she is going to sling that on them.
      Pay up ratepayers once more or even on NZTA to subsidize the ferries much like they do the buses. Now there’s a shit load of money we could save. Charge people for the bus and train services they use instead or robbing the ratepayers. and the motorist.

  13. Social Development and Employment Minister Louise Upston says she wants to be known as “compassionate” rather than kind in the role, while pushing back on the rhetoric the right engages in “beneficiary bashing”, calling the comments “absolute rot”.

    Upston was destined to take on the role after the 2017 election had National emerged victorious but instead, Labour came into Government and Carmel Sepuloni spent six years at the helm.

    Labour initially undid some of National’s approach of the previous nine years – particularly around sanctions – while undertaking a major review of the welfare system through the Welfare Expert Advisory Group. Sepuloni also introduced a culture change wanting to create a “friendlier, warmer” environment.

    Upston said she was not promising any radical changes but wanted the social welfare system to have a stronger focus on getting people into work – something she relayed to top officials in her first day on the job.

    “If you look at the principles of the Social Security Act, it is about a focus on work, or if you can’t work at the moment, preparing for work. And that’s not a left or right issue, because that’s been the same for decades.”

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/politics/social-development-minister-louise-upston-pushes-back-on-beneficiary-bashing-critics-outlines-social-welfare-policies/T4BJ456ICREERJNM7N5HV57HDE/

    She could start by reintroducing youth rates. Paying 16 year olds adult wages is a disincentive to achieving anything.
    Young people should be employed on a training wage with a training program that rewards their efforts. Makes employers think about their workforce for the future instead of everyone trying to poach others employees once they are trained. Its mindlessly stupid. No one wins, not the young person nor the employer who carries the can for the training.

    Upston said she thought the period of low unemployment was a “missed opportunity” to link employers desperate for workers with those on Jobseeker benefits.

    “It’s a disgrace. There have been massive opportunities when there have been businesses everywhere desperate for staff.”

    Yep both parties piss in the same bucket.

    A fire broke out near a major shopping mall in Hamilton’s Te Rapa about 5.30pm, sending thick black smoke spewing out over the area, prompting authorities to issue an emergency mobile alert about 7pm.

    The building houses a marine vessel shop storage, with reports that boats and jet skis are on fire inside.

    Police have closed Te Rapa Rd from the intersection with Pukete Rd and Manchester Pl to the Byrant Rd and Sunshine Ave roundabout.

    Bystanders told the Herald they could see firetrucks moving in to douse the flames and the blazing building was being evacuated.

  15. they never give up. The sooner someone gets prosecuted for murder the better.

    Public health officials are recommending that people who are more likely to experience severe Covid-19, such as Māori and Pacific people aged 50 and over, as well as everyone aged 65 and older, get a booster vaccine before the holidays.

    Dr Nicholas Jones Director of Public Health says New Zealand has been experiencing another wave of Covid-19 over the last few weeks with hospitalisations now back to levels seen last January.

    “We are concerned that as the country heads into the summer holiday period, there will be increased social gatherings and events which could both increase the rate of infections in the population and potentially put vulnerable populations at risk.

    “As we approach the summer season of gatherings and events, a summer 2023/24 booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine is recommended for groups who are at higher risk of becoming severely ill:

    people aged 65 and older,
    Māori and Pacific people aged 50 and older,
    those who have a medical condition that makes them severely immunocompromised (12 years of age and older),
    Pregnant people who have not had any booster dose previously, have co-morbidities, or have no history of previous Covid-19 infection,
    residents of aged care facilities, and people who were recommended to receive a booster in April 2023 but have not yet done so.

    “These groups are recommended to have a summer 2023/24 booster irrespective of the number of previous doses they’ve had, so long as they have completed the initial two doses and it’s been more than six months since their last booster or Covid-19 infection.

    “If you get your booster now you will reduce your risk of severe illness over the holiday period.

    “Everyone aged over 30 continues to be eligible for a booster and people with complex health needs should also consider getting a booster, provided it has been at least 6 months since they had their last dose or had Covid-19.

    “You can receive an additional Covid-19 booster dose, regardless of how many doses you had previously. You need to wait six months between doses, and it’s recommended that you wait six months after your last Covid-19 infection.”

    Chief Medical Officer for Te Aka Whai Ora | Māori Health Authority, Dr Rawiri McKree Jansen, says if whānau are unwell, they should stay away from friends and family at higher risk of getting very sick, such as pēpi, kaumātua, immunocompromised, and disabled people.

    “It is also especially important to wear a face mask in closed, crowded or confined spaces, stay home if you feel sick and test for Covid-19, and if eligible, to take anti-viral medications as soon as you become ill with Covid-19”, says Dr McKree Jansen.

    Dr Jones says free face masks and rapid antigen tests (RATs) are still available from participating pharmacies and RAT collection sites.

    “When picking up free masks from your local collection centre, talk to staff about whether a medical or a P2/N95 mask is the best choice for you.

    “As Covid-19 continues to circulate in our communities, it’s important to keep up with good hygiene practices, hand washing, masking wearing, boosters and testing. People who test positive are still requested to isolate for at least 5 days and it is particularly important to stay away from those who are at risk of severe illness.”
