  1. Anybody there said the traveller knocking on the moonlit door? None up and at it this early? Oh dear just me again. Know it’s early and I have no idea why I wake so early but that is how it is and I need coffee.
    Have a great day people and keep safe.

  2. Oh what it is each morning to start the day as I intend to go on with some wit, sarcasm and observations. Today I acknowledge that I was up at 5.05 and had nothing useful to impart and share with anyone at that hour but have quietly observed the darkness retreating and the sun rubbing the sleep from its eyes.

  3. Right before Waitangi Weekend and the annual Bun Fight up North, Luxon announces the Government is going to review the Waitangi Tribunal and amend the Waitangi Tribunal Legislation.

    This will upset the Natives and their gravy train. The whining will be so loud Health and Safety will have to step in to protect the collective ear drums of the country.

    An excellent decision, but one for which I think Luxon will need a beefed up security detail at Waitangi, in just over a weeks time.

    Elk and wapiti sales: Venison demand sparks record prices
    Otago Daily Times
    By Shawn McAvinue
    26 Jan, 2024 05:00 AM

    Tikana Wapiti Stud co-owner Dave Lawrence offered 18 wapiti bulls at his annual on-farm sale in Browns.

    The bulls on sale included one 2-year-old and one 4-year-old, while the rest were 3-year-olds.

    Every bull except the 4-year-old sold.

    The average sale price of $10,700 was the highest in the history of the sale.

    “We were very pleased. It was the most successful sale we’ve had and the most spirited bidding.”

    The 3-year-old Larakin sold for the top price of $23,000 to Donald Whyte, of Whyte Farming in Canterbury.

    Larakin had a “spectacular” velvet head.

    “While he wasn’t the heaviest head of velvet, he had a huge spread and great, long tynes.”

  5. I see that Kiri Allen has poured her heart and soul out to Claire Trevitt at the ferald!
    Add another couple of words and I think it would rival that crap, ardern had someone write.
    Punch a hole in the corne, add a bit of string and call it a book.
    Wonder if it would sell any better at the wharehouse or beat it to the bin!

    • Sooty, The Honourable Kiri Allen seems to have had a sad, traumatic and pitiful life, full of grief, drama and unexpected consequences only we mere mortals could sit up and gasp at.

      Being born a “Woman of Colour” only adds to the desperation and struggle that she has had to endure since conception. I believe she was interviewed on TVNZ this morning by another “Woman of Colour” and the tragedy of her whole life was exposed for all to see. I am fortunate enough not to have seen it myself as I would have been depressed to a point where I would not be able to go across to Lake Taupo shortly, for the rest of the day, to enjoy the beauty and wonderment of this country as I am about to do.

      However, when I look at all this Kiri Allen shit, it is all a build up to get her off her DIC Charges which she will be facing in a Criminal Courtroom, soon.

      If you were a “Woman of Colour” and had an Honourific” before your name Sooty, you too, would enjoy this exposure and adoration to help get you off any old DIC Charge you may face.

    • So they call it “thankful” while knowing the real ‘possible’ life changing effects.

      …… Thankfully, the cases appear relatively mild, but there is concern that we need to make providers aware of this issue.
      CDC is discussing communication options, and we may have more information tomorrow.”

      Cardiologists say there’s no such thing as a mild case of heart inflammation and research has since shown that a number of cases don’t resolve for months, if at all.

      So they now can infer it as a collateral damage, but not a warning sign.
      There have been many warning signs, like on :–

      On today’s Ed’s post how Health New Zealand and the NZ Ministry of Health does covers up the Kiwi kidney problems & statistics,
      Further comment about the systemic CDC & where there a Supreme Court case is filed to start.

      Another point, issue that needs to be thoroughly looked into with the revised , to take in questions from the public as raised by David Seymour, for Royal Commission of Inquiry. !
      Also as mentioned by Winston Peters also ‘saying’ that the current Commission needs to be able to do a thorough job.

      Just election promises?
      Any heavy lifters on this, in Parliament, that can put it all together to bring about this change of focus.?

  6. A guy was on trial for murder and if convicted, would get the electric chair.
    His brother found out that a redneck was on the jury and figured he would be the one to bribe.
    He told the redneck that he would be paid $10,000 if he could convince the rest of the jury to reduce the charge to manslaughter.
    The jury was out an entire week and returned with a verdict of manslaughter.
    After the trial, the brother went to the redneck’s home, told him what a great job he had done, and paid him the $10,000.
    The redneck replied that it wasn’t easy to convince the rest of the jury to change the charge to manslaughter. They all wanted to let him go.

  7. ESG is hanging by a thread as companies realise signing up means you will go broke.
    Fund managers should be taken outside and whipped for signing up to this garbage.

    • Do not under estimate that ESG;– Environment Social Governance as it is run very well with the academia, educational institutes, amplified by media, to push government departments with rules, regulations, fees, levies & likewise with Regional & District Councils to gain “captured” clients & customers to bring about their compliance.
      Some very strong “whips” there.

      Some systemic finance institutions can push a lot of that shit too.
      I figure the Insurance does a lot of complying as they too can shove those costs at their customers whilst spieling “Climate Change”

      • Decision makers need to suffer consequences when their decisions fail. Most state institutions are completely isolated from their own mistakes. I think politicians main skill is verbal diarrhea covering for the incompetency of their bureacrats. To some degree the 3 political parties are now covering for their inept ministry country clubs, they are being morphed right now into defenders of the managerial class.

  8. Recent OIA responses received from NZ Police have revealed the futility of the new multi-million dollar Arms Information System, colloquially known as the firearms registry.

    Unsurprisingly, it shows that the proportion of firearms seized by police without a serial number has increased since the registry was announced, to over 65% by the end of November 2023. It also shows that 98.1% of all firearms seized either had no serial number or had never been in the police system.

    This means that either there is no way of registering these firearms and/or they entered the country illegally, i.e. smuggled or illegally manufactured.

    • I wonder how big the increase is in people not bothering to get firearms licenses now.
      How attractive is it listing all your firearms alongside your address in a database that will at some stage be breached by the gangs?

        • Well they did not have to register their muskets in 1840 at the time they signed a ‘partnership’.
          Nor their horses.
          So why should they have to register their Sig Sauer and Winchester now.
          these were Maori inventions, by the way, before you try cultural appropriation .

          Why should they register motor vehicles (Horseless carriage) if horses did not require this in 1840.

          They did not have to register the sticks and stones they used to kill other people from 1300 to 1769 when that Cook Chappie arrived and bought bloody food, clothing and other things .

          You privileged whitie who make up 12% of the world’s population need to tone down the supremacy.
          Maori had invented so much shit centuries ago they forgot more of these inventions than they could even count .
          Then revived and patented by whitie.

    • Agreed howitis on the 1840 signing ;— and it was officially, legally reconfirmed in 1860
      Of course it will be a breach of the Treaty as Stephen Franks explains.
      .
      April 2019 …… When the Treaty was signed, pu and tupara (muskets and double barreled shotguns) were among the most valuable of all taonga under Article 2 (if it really does go beyond the real property interests listed as the New Zealand courts say).
      .
      Article 2 assured the chiefs and all the ordinary people of New Zealand that they would have undisturbed exclusive use and possession of their taonga.
      .
      So if relations between Police and (rural) Maori break down, it is inevitable that some Maori will assert a Treaty right to be free from confiscation and possibly even licensing for firearms.
      Urban judges from leafy suburbs will look for some sophistry to reject that claim both in law, and morally.
      But they should not underestimate the power of a strong view that authority is wrong allied to a wide belief in historical right.
      We have seen that repeatedly.
      Myth becomes political reality when enough people believe the myth.
      .
      The Arms Act 1860 exempted Maori.
      I have not researched the history, but I suspect that reflected both practical common sense on enforcement, and recognition of a Treaty assurance of Maori rights to retain pu and tupara.
      Under the so-called right of development in Treaty jurisprudence, that would now extend to whatever is the modern equivalents (in relative effectiveness to other weapons?) ……

      https://www.stephenfranks.co.nz/nzs-right-to-bear-arms-firearms-as-a-treaty-taonga/

      So precedence has been set in 1860. ….. hmmmm ……
      Then the same judges opened wide the category of “treasures” taonga like to radio waves, water, where/what-ever it is, etc..

      So the move of having fire arm owners to be licenced & in compliance with fire arms knowledge, then special security for fire arms, that has its own onerous mission creep.
      Then to another costly over layer which is also an risk to breach security of a fire arms licence is the registry of all fire arms to be accessed by who can hack & share it.

  9. So the devastating cyclone off Australia has fizzled out. It may have made category 2, although there seems to me some confusion about categories that I have noticed. Looks like it never exceeded 120km/h winds so only a Tropical Storm.

    This site has it only as a Tropical Storm https://www.tropicalstormrisk.com/tracker/dynamic/main.html

    This site has it has a Cat 2 Cyclone https://zoom.earth/storms/kirrily-2024/

  10. Luxon delegating hairy chestnut. Retains his Fence Sitting Championship of NZ

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2024/01/christopher-luxon-gives-act-s-david-seymour-new-role-managing-treaty-principles-bill.html
    Prime Minister Christopher Luxon has allocated ACT leader David Seymour a new portfolio, allowing him oversight of the proposed Treaty Principles Bill.

    Seymour will become an Associate Minister of Justice and manage the Bill. Previously, Paul Goldsmith was commenting on plans for the Bill as Justice Minister.

    This move will give Seymour more ownership of the controversial legislation, which will be based on an ACT Party proposal to debate and define the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi. Seymour has said it’s time for New Zealanders to have this discussion, rather than leaving it up to judges and bureaucrats to make their own interpretations.

  11. So a man climbs up onto a floating crane in Wellington Harbour, jumps into the sea and dies. Now I know this is probably some school kid journalist but what does this tell you.
    “Divers found the person’s body in the water at about 2.35pm, a police spokesperson said.
    They said a rāhui will now be put in place, with further details to be provided soon.”

    Since when do the police do this.

    • ha same topic same time HP, looks like the maori wizards have been busy lately casting all these imaginary spells the call rahui.
      imo rahui should only apply to the natives, they want to ignore all whitey stuff like laws a d governence so only fair they get the middle finger for this sort of bollocks.

      i wonder if the maori wizards charge for this service and if so how much?… we all know nothing is free with these arseholes!

    • RaHui
      Well, that is a load of hooey .

      the te raro version being ‘hui’ ….from the people who invented the 26 letter alphabet.
      you bet ///
      ———————-

      The Wellington City Council confirmed a rāhui would be put in place, but it was not clear how far this would extend over the waterfront.
      Many teenagers and groups of people were milling about in the area in preparation for the Manu World Champs, which was scheduled to begin Friday afternoon.
      The diving board area was blocked off for the Manu World Championships event taking place.

      Ah well, I guess the deceased will not win the Gold in the diving contest.

    • Some Native with association to the Mongrel Mob gets done in last Friday, then thrown in the Waikato River and bobs up near Ngaruawahia. I do not see a Rahui has been placed there. Maybe it is too close to the Ngaruawahia Railway Bridge where young Early Settlers jump off into the Waikato River and they do not want to upset the little Scrotes who would just ignore it anyway.

      • There’s a question – should the bahooey be in place where they probably actually died, or were found, or every place in between? Is all of the water right to the river mouth affected by the death? I’d imagine that any member of the Mental Midget Mob would contaminate a lot of water downstream.

        But we should probably be most concerned about any possible impact upon taniwha.

    • -A great loss to society.
      -Maoridom will be the worse for his loss of guidance and leadership.
      -He served his people well and honoured the family name

      and so on
      all bullshit of course
      ————–
      …Tirikatene entered Parliament in 2011, after working as a commercial lawyer, following in the footsteps of his koro, Sir Eruera Tirikatene, and aunt, Whetu Tirikatene-Sullivan, who had both represented the southern Māori electorate.

      Following their lead, Tirikatene decided not to deliver a valedictory speech.
      Sir Eruera couldn’t deliver a valedictory, having died in office, [so what, Joe Biden died in office but the hologram yammers on ] and his aunt lost the seat an election – also removing her ability to formally farewell the House.
      Tirikatene lost Te Tai Tonga to Te Pāti Māori candidate Tākuta Ferris at October’s election, but returned to Parliament as a Labour list MP…..
      ———————

      And Special K leaves in a week after collecting a salary for over 3 months for 6 or so days attendance.
      He is probably too thick to work out the benefit of that.
      Tirikatene pretty much did the same, just different approach.
      Whetu was a weird one. appeared to be academically able but her output in parliament was weak as .
      29 years there and bugger all to show for it.

      Back in the 1880s- from memory years ago in PolSci – the MPs turned up for 6 or eight weeks – passed the law then went home. Mostly by coastal shipping. From memory, not paid either.
      Much of the law then was adopted from pommyland and regional councils were stronger.

      We just need to get back to admitting these bastards are part timers esp LIST MPs.
      They have zero responsibility.
      In opposition they should be on minimum wage (I’ll allow the ‘living wage’ ha ha ) after putting in a signed timesheet.

  12. Gutted..oh well.//

    Forty jobs are to go at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment as the Government pulls the plug on regional leaders groups.

    The RSLGs — set up under the previous Labour government in 2019 — are independent advisory groups that include people from business and industry, local government, worker, iwi, community and the public service.

    Those members were expected to commit around 16 hours a month.

    • Looks like the police will roll over. “We are now aware of discussions around the event and Police will be engaging with event organisers and making enquiries with those who have expressed concerns, as well as with the local iwi in relation to this.

      “Our Far North staff will be monitoring the event and will respond to any issues as required.”

    • …hope a fair few pissed of fishermen turn up to deal with these…

      Your issue is that you are well exposed with :-
      -A decent towing vehicle left on land while you are at sea
      at night parked up
      -The boat
      -The motor
      -the fishing gear

      These are totally feral Northland maori; not docile South Island maori that are a distinct minority.
      Would there be more Filipinos in Southland than maori now?

        The cops view their job as:

        Dishing out traffic tickets
        Stealing recreational drugs for use and/or resale
        Arresting and hassling anyone who threatens to undermine the narrative

        Confronting aggro part-Maoris? No better work stories there.

    • Surely she jests. What does the Rt Hon. Deputy PM and Foreign Affairs Minister and Maori statesman Winston Raymond Peters have to say about that? ////

      “One area Māori are particularly not listened to, not given a say, not even consulted is when it comes to foreign policy so our voices are not heard at all, the decisions regarding foreign policy, how New Zealand impacts rest of the world are made solely by the crown and this is a massive treaty breach,” Dr Rata says.

    • When I arrived here in 96, I had no issues with Maori, I knew nothing about them and had no prejudice. I still have no issue with the common man on the street, but I fucking hate these idiots making everything about them and their oppression. They are lucky it was Queen Victoria and not some French or Russian leader that they were dealing with….
