  1. One of the loggers who out Shane Jones fronts up with reply saying it’s not about politics, it’s about you says frustrated logger. That the stinging retort from frustrated Pat Cox who was one of those that criticized the Minister for Forestry Shane Jones for electioneering at award ceremony. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12272720
    Winston with Jones and many other MP’s from NZ First think they can do and say what they like on behalf of the Government because they know Jacinda can’t and won’t do anything about it even if it borders on corruption.

  2. Did Cindy deal with Shane Jones in his attempt to blackmail the forestry industry? NO! Telling Shane to read the manual and “his language should be tighter” is not rebuking him for the corruption that wafts around the entitled narcissist politician. When it comes to scolding and holding her ministers accountable for their bad and incompetent behaviour Cindy, the accidential PT PM is as effective as a chocolate teapot. They know she holds no sway and carry on as usual. I hope the voters of Northland can see clearly and don’t vote this millstone of a minister in at the next election.

  3. President Erdogan of Turkey (August 21, 2007);-
    “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it”.
    https://web.archive.org/web/20070826165606/http://www.thememriblog.org/turkey/blog_personal/en/2595.htm

    And so it continues on by another leader, another islamic country.
    Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan (September 24, 2019);- “What is radical Islam? There is only ONE Islam and that is the Islam of Prophet (PBUH)”.

        Can we report it to the Ombusdsman?

          My God Stuff is just a disgusting fucking Labour/Green party propaganda site these days – clearly we have no ‘free press’ in this society, and that means we have no real democracy as the 4th estate is an essential component of a functioning democracy.

          We’re living in the ruins of the once great Western civilisation.

      I use Android Auto for maps by connecting the phone when in an unknown area.
      Also, the phone can be used as the music player.

  4. I watched some of the videos coming out of China’s 70th Celebrations yesterday and the militarism was pretty concerning frankly. They showed off their hypersonic low-flying multiple warhead atomic missiles which can apparently reach the USA in 30 minutes. Scary stuff.

    On the plus side they take their National Day pretty seriously, with a week long holiday and festivities. And I didn’t see bunches of Tibetans or Uighurs sticking their tongues out and giving the finger to Xi Jinping either – which was a good thing and shows that they care about their country.

    All the fireworks and colour was amazing. But the missiles stuck in my mind. They were sending a message, and the message has been well and truly received I reckon.

  5. Ok rural boys and girls, this is how you stick it up the CoL with an effective protest to those who have shown you nothing but contempt for the vital food production and financial input to NZ. Effectively shut down the Auckland and Wellington motorways and wait for the reaction!

    • “At least 103 people have died in suspicious circumstances in New Zealand in 2019. That number includes the 51 people killed in the March 15 Christchurch terror attack.
      At the same time last year there had been 49 homicides.
      Last year’s toll closed at 78, the worst since 2009 when 94 people were killed.”

      So 2010 to 2017 inclusive was’ 8 years of neglect’ by the murders to keep the numbers up.
      What changed in that time?

        • Ok
          Should be …’8 years of neglect’ by the murderers to keep the numbers…
          Therefore a piss-take on the Coalition of Liars constant reference to 9 years of neglect.

          If I phrased it correctly first time then it is saying the murderers have had 8 years of neglect by committing less murders.
          They were being slack. Black humour.

          By and large murders dropped under Key’s Labour Lite – with eight clear years of reduction – some years of significant reduction – but have picked up massively under the COL.
          I agree with WG when about a month ago I thought there seemed to be a lot more murders happening.
          Numbers are now starting to support this. They will of course be shut down. Not the murders, just the information dissemination.

          Note from the chart https://www.police.govt.nz/sites/default/files/publications/historic-new-zealand-murder-rates.pdf
          ..that murders jumped significantly under the Lange Labour Govt from 1985 onwards.

  7. When your Government Kiwi Bank Chief Economist has to write a column on Business confidence then it shows the Government is not Listening. Jarrod Kerr the Banks Chief Economist says business confidence is at it’s worse level since the financial crisis and interest rates cuts aren’t doing the job. The Government needs to step up, writes the chief Economist Jarrid Kerr business confidence is crumbling in two survey’s out this week firms have highlighted weak capacity restraints, Government and poor pricing power as reasons to be worried.

    • I think you’ll find it’s probably some left-winger trying to have a laugh. None of the policies really related to Trump’s thinking, most of them are hardcore communist in nature:
      – increase the living wage
      – increase pay to nurses and teachers
      – strengthen workers’ rights
      – increase student allowances
      – increase GST to 20% on overseas purchases

      Overall, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is some lunatic lefty’s idea of how to build a list of NZ white supremacists – as it’s so clumsy and not very well done, it could even be Paddy Gower doing some duh “investigative journalism innit”.

  8. Had a quick look. reduce GST to 10 %, increase payments to everyone else. Where do they think the money comes from. If you want the public to take you seriously, get a decent website that has links or bios about who your people are. Did a search for the leader, nothing.
    Sounds like they are lefties trying to divide the right by giving them yet another party to vote for.
    I guess it works in local body elections so why not try it at a national level.

I’d forgotten a scheduled 6 hour power cut (installing new transformer?). Hubby had taken the car so I was stuck at home on a miserable grey cold day without heating and not even a hot coffee. We don’t know how lucky we are with our modern life technology!

      Why don’t these new political parties ever say who is behind the establishment of them? Don’t they back themselves or would the voting public not trust those behind them?!

    then spend the rest of the campaigning how he kept them honest, you need him next time round etc etc

    First comes the OTT moderation, then
    DPF’s headline today “NZ First officially against saving lives” reminds me of WOBH when Slater claimed that by opposing euthanasia legislation Bill English ‘wanted people to suffer.’
    Will DPF be expecting his readers to vote for a destructive minor party of his choice next?

        • Maggy , I can remember when he bought in nested comments and everyone. quite rightly, thought it was great. What has happened now with the stupid, delayed moderation is any benefit from that is lost because several people are making the same comment with the same links spread all over the thread, because they are putting them up while the first comment on the topic is in moderation.
          So it is a mess and just about unreadable.

  11. I am always curious to know what Winstons and NZ First Policy is leading up to a Election and the Gold Card normaly plays a part. So it would interesting to know how many old people have voted for Winston in the past to get these policies for pensioners. Well again Tracey Martin has said when asked about free Doctors visits and eye tests she replied “we have one more budget to go into a Election, so budget cycles are what they are, so I would say it’s a bit early to say we haven’t kept our promise yet.https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/free-doctors-visits-eye-tests-seniors-still-nz-first-policy-despite-no-roll-supergold-card?auto=6091036953001
    Another of Winston’s long held promises being used to entice the same oldies back to vote Winston First again next Election.

    • Had a go at this topic yesterday and it is worth another round.

      Winston Peters is DPM in a coalition government that takes $2000 additional tax from my wife and I annually. Bill English had legislated for tax reduction and the Winston Peters government bowled that as an early piece, probably their only piece, of delivery. (I am leaving the unwanted Arms Act amendments out of this discussion)

      So it needs more than the odd discount, free eye test
      or doctors visit to make up $2000 per annum and so far the government is well ahead of these two pensioners.

      That Bill English had determined tax could reduce was fine by me. The current bunch have blown taxpayers money as if there is no tomorrow. I am sure my spending if my money is a lot more efficient than the governments.

      I am well over Winston Peters and promises. I’ll keep track of my bank account and so far he has not measured up. No electoral bribe will do it. He does not come through for this pensioner.

      • We watch Sky News a lot but what surprises me is the relatively low viewer figures. I realise there is much more competition in Australia and they have a “state bias” but a few months ago Andrew Bolt said his figures were around 60,000 /night in Aussie. I would not be surprised if he had at least half that figure in NZ.
        It does not surprise me Alan Jones retained his audience. A few advertisers throwing their toys out of the cot is not going to disrupt what is probably one of the longest running, top rated shows in Sydney.

  17. New Zealand: Mental health, cultural difficulties said to explain why Muslim migrant keeps sexually assaulting women

    Rob says

    Oct 1, 2019 at 3:18 pm

    White guy attacks Muslims ie Christchurch and it’s supremacist plot carefully coordinated across multiple countries and probably rooted in Aryan supremacy.
    Muslim attacks whites and is only attributable to racism, lack of cultural accommodation and deep seated mental health issues.
    Move along. Nothing to see.

    • I think this was mentioned before, but bears questioning, as not to be ‘islamophobic’, unlike the immigration system.

      He had served time in a Kenyan jail for indecent assault.
      He had committed the same crime here in under a year.

      per the ‘stuff’ article.

      So who did the screening to allow this person to come to NZ?
      Why should NZ’ers trust the immigration system, as even then it was the UN that put up who is part of the refugee package, and particularly now, that Ardern and Peters gave some sovereignty to the UN, under the migration pact?
