  1. I asked a close family member last night if she’d still go along with police road blocks, forced masking, social distancing ,months long lockdowns and forced vaccinations ? within a second “YES” ,no fcuking lessons have been learned by the vast majority of the NZ slave sheeple unfortunately ,the lyrics of a popular song from the 90s explains our Kiwi culture perfectly “we’re running to stand still”, it’s a shame.

    • I have no wish to ask my family members if they would do exactly the same thing again, as I am pretty sure I know they would, I even think they loved the whole drama of it. Loved the masking shit and getting the jabs. They have had the flue many times even though they are jabbed, boostered and flue shots up to date I am the only person in my family here in New Zealand to not have a jab nor do I believe anything they tell me, but they are incredibly religious about it. A friend who is a nurse and married to a doctor said yesterday they washed everything from the delivery from the supermarket, were very worried about covid and the spread.They are getting the booster every time a new one comes out. Just shows you can have a PHD in medical science and still be as stupid as.

    • I am the only one in my family who refused to take any of the covid19 shots. My sister, a registered nurse, swears by them. The rest of the immediate family have changed their minds after the first two shots and have all refused to take any boosters. They also refused to let our two six year-old grandchildren get any covid19 shots. Some people do learn when information becomes available!

      • Bert,
        People only learn in a few ways. By having an open mind to new knowledge (best), learning the hard way (which most of us do) and by being brainwashed as per covid and remaining uncritical and not questioning the brain washing that they have been absorbing via their eyes and ears,(what 80% do)

      • Bert, the big test is when they try pull this shit again. i rekon 80-90% of covid nazis will do it all again without question, very few have opened their eyes and minds to what happened and just remain ignorant.
        i bet the 2 shot folk will still lockdown, mask up and maybe jab again.

        if this shit kicks off again it needs many tens of thousands of ppl disobeying from the get go otherwise theyll double down on dissenters next time and get extra tough.

          Got stopped 4 or 5 times on the road in Auckland but the dumb fcuk pigs never questioned my BS excuses.

      • BertP, My oldest son and his wife were mandated by C/ face Ardern to have the jabs but wouldn’t have the boosters , thankfully they didn’t have my 2 grandchildren jabbed despite enormous pressure exerted on them by the community.

  2. Lizziep, I think it’s partially something to do with our Kiwi character, pig headedness and the inability to admit we were wrong especially with such a massive cockup of accepting everything pigshit Ardern and her cronies told us, some friends have admitted they wished they had not gotten the snake bite poisons but it’s just to late now.

  3. “An Education Review Office (ERO) report released today found a small number of current and former students have felt “harmed and deeply hurt” by their experiences at the school, and believe they have been subjected to bullying because of their sexual orientation.”

    Here’s an idea – don’t tell everyone about your sexual orientation. We really don’t care what you get up to in your spare time, but we do object to having to accommodate it.

  4. My sister (82) is in a retirement village.
    Last time I visited there was a flyer from the village to the residents it was time for boosters.
    I don’t hear of any uprising from these mature kiwis who I thought would be revolting against this continued control.
    Would love to hear of a village protest.
    Still seeing masks in the supermarket.

    • WO, I live in Buttfuck, Aotearoa, and which ever direction you go, the nearest next town to the north, east or south is, at a good clip, 1 hour away and to the west, 2 hours 40 minutes away, so one would consider it, Buttfuck that is, to be reasonably isolated. Fire a shotgun down the main drag at peak hour rush on a Friday night and there would be no one to receive the incoming fire, it is that quiet and isolated from outside human influence.

      But the growing number of mask wearers seen in the main drag during the day or the supermarket, on any given day, has reached plague proportions, however, from my observation, it is man bun wearers and fat old woman from out of town, passing through, or the odd and I mean very ODD, local who has been easily convinced they are compromised in some obscure medical way, by Cindy and that very lovely, Dr Bloomfield as they watched TV1 in the middle of the day, because that is all they wish to do in their miserable existence. The cause of this mask wearing in a very isolated community, is victimhood and victimhood is the fastest growing medical condition in this country.

      • AH. the result of their behavior and inability to distill crap form good seance will send them to the grave soon leaving us more intelligent life to succeed and have much less tax to pay as we will no longer have to support the stupid and indolent and the lazy and the brainwashed.
        Sad but is going to happen. soon you will have intelligent Indians or somali’s rolling into take their place. Ivermectin users.
        I notice many of the Ivermectin countries are also Islamic followers .

        Funny thing just happened in this post. The word Ivermectin comes up as incorrect but the spell check doesn’t have the correct word in it. Phizer was last noted as buying up all the Ivermectin makers in India. they are fucking evil bastards.

      • It is great up around the hospital where I live, there are so many wearing them which beggars belief, drivers in their cars on their own are mainly Asian men!!!!!!! They drive down Selwyn Street on to Horne thinking they will get a park somewhere anywhere and sometimes have to then park in Palmerston Street or at the lake so they wear them walking up to the hospital. We also have a number of Somalian people wearing masks then throwing them off on the street when they get new ones at the hospital probably the whole box of them. They are all so precious////////.

    • The acquiescent started a few decades, getting the inmates to be jabbed up for the flue season.

      Probably not written down, but it is inferred that visitors can still come, if they are all jabbed up.
      I do not watch TV but occasionally when visiting some and I am amazed at the level of “fear” news, plus those ongoing adverts about jabs, the mainstream papers, for me is so unbelievable & relentless.

      Has there been any mention of anything contrary, or what is being discussed.
      Have they got access to computer, like for the Platform, or VFF radio?

      Yes TAH, the drive through ones, can figure the car would be a good bet to be an ev.
      Good point on the victimhood, as many probably claim that in the greenstone pedant, & the tattoos.
      Only saw 1 masked guy, in a super market , but the mask was a skull of teeth. the black t-shirt had “only good vibes” scruffy longish hair. Probably a nice guy// but when he came close, I was wary of him, because it seemed more like an ‘antifa’ set up for some ‘crazy’.

  5. i find it hilarious media and leftards melting down over the tobacco stuff.
    the same clowns that have bleated on about cost of living and disproportianate affecting maori and pasifika now want maori and pasifika folk to cough up more tax.

    now i see the media have found out luxons sister in law works for a big tobacco company so im guessing theyre gunna keep beating him with this until he submits… isnt it odd that the media dont want any outside influence of politicians esp capitalist influence yet the media fail to see the irony thats exactly what theyre doing too?

    luxon needs to grow a set of balls (yeah aint gunna happen) and announce theyre ceasing the tax increase on cigis and to cover the shortfall in tax revenue theyre gunna have to cut ALL funding to ALL media and sell off tvnz and rnz… ah yes dreams are free but wouldnt that be a fucking epic way to tell the media to go fuck themselves!

      id bet my left nut that poor diet and booze is causing a far higher rate of illness and death among maori etc so why arent they calling for maccas/kfc/fizzy taxes or bans?…. wracist!!!!!

And they wonder why people are turning off the MSM in their droves. Wankers all of them.

    • Somehow not raising the tax is a breach of Te Fucking Treaty. There was some extremely convoluted logic needed to try and explain that. The whole concept of Maoris insisting on paying more tax nearly caused my head to explode.

      the same clowns that have bleated on about cost of living and disproportianate affecting maori and pasifika now want maori and pasifika folk to cough up more tax.

      In order to not be racist, perhaps the coalition should acquiesce to their demands, restart smoke free, and reintroduce tobacco control for the Maoris, and Pacific Islanders only, for 6 months.

      And while they are at it, for the Maoris, and Pacific Islanders only, introduce “tub of lard” free, which would would give pubs the mandate to refuse alcohol to said group if they are overweight by a weigh in at the door; and repeat the same at takeaway places, cafes, restaurants, bakeries and supermarkets. With supermarkets, there will be no fizzy drinks, potatoes crisps, candy bars etc for Maori and Pacific Islander lard arses.

      “Sorry you are a fat bastard, no KFC for you.”

      The idiots who complain about the “racist” smoking things, don’t give a rat’s arse about Maori Health. It is just another conjured up battlefront against the coalition to distract it, and try and kill the coalition though a thousand cuts.

      [1] If I was Winston, I would use my exact argument about food and alcohol – “If it is OK to regulate against Maori and Pacific Islanders to stop them buggering up their health with smoking, then it is OK to regulate against Maori and Pacific Islanders to stop them buggering up their health with drinking alcohol, and eating junk food.”
      [2] Since Pakeha and Asians are having no problem with smoking and health, from now on Maori and Pacific Islanders will pay double the price for cigarettes. And KFC, etc.

        1. Yes, it is a man but one who sits down to urinate and is, of confused Chromosome determination.

        2. The traditional Kai was kindly donated to this worthy cause, by you. An apology by the Crown will be issued, if you were not consulted on your forced donation to the cost of the Kai. Consultation on the wording of any apology will have to be made with the aforementioned Kai consumers, prior to the agreed wording and apology being issued, but only if consensus can be agreed upon.

        3. Yes, your observation is correct. Sausage Rolls are a traditional Native food, much the way Kiwifruit are and associated marketing of Kiwifruit overseas is, a traditional Native method of distributing Kai, Largese and Troughing to an already catered for market. To demonstrate my point that Sausage Rolls are a Native Food and Kiwifruit is a Native Food, read this:

      • Of course and to explain further.

        Indigenous – Def: Born or originating in a particular place;

        Maori – Def:: Sailed to New Zealand about 700 years ago by canoe from their homeland of Hawaiki.

        Conclusion: Immigrants, so therefore under Ti Triki Triti, still immigrants.

        • Well the early arrivers ate and drove out those here before them, as those people didnt get to sign a piece of paper they get nothing and no say, yet the early arrivers that tell the story of their past spell out the fact that they are asylum seekers leaving their homeland, they do not qualify for the indigenous peoples programme being pushed by fake world order. Id like to see the descendants of the mori ori take them to task to claim their land back off the first arrivers, the treaty torn up and NZ be a country for NZers

    Auckland Transport (AT) is removing a central suburb pedestrian crossing after spending $460,000 installing it less than two years ago.

    Roadworks on Hayr Rd, including the raised crossing in Te Tātua/Three Kings, were completed last May.

    It was meant to last decades but workers started to dig up the crossing last week. It’s unknown how much removal and a replacement will cost.

    • Probably removing it because raised crossings are a pain in the arse.
      Pity the poor person in the back of an ambulance as it races to the hospital and hits one of these stupid bumps – bad enough the vehicle dipping into a pothole every 5 metres without it taking flight on a speed bump or raised crossing.

  8. Despite the government rolling back on te reo Māori use in the public sector, council policies would not be affected, the local government minister has confirmed.

    At Tuesday’s South Wairarapa District Council [SWDC] Māori standing committee (MSC), concern was expressed for the future of the council’s refreshed Māori policy draft.

    “There might be a few more tweaks required but let’s not muck around on this,” MSC member Whitu Karanua said.

    “In this government environment we are going through, by March there may be a whole new lot of legislation come out that might change this all again.”

    The refreshed policy would obligate the council to provide opportunities for staff, elected members, and appointed members to “learn, understand, and speak te reo Māori”.

    The second raises his glass, a double Glenfiddich 18yo, and announces “Brigadier General, 29 years serving Her Majesty – Married 34 years – 2 sons, Fleet Street Barristers” and quaffs his shot.

    The third raises his glass, a pint of Samuel Smith’s Yorkshire Stingo and announces “Sergeant Major, 35 years serving Her Majesty – Never married – 2 sons, Brigadier Generals”!

  10. David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Act of 2019 was opposed at every stage by the Godaddled expertly shepherded by the Holy Catholic Church. To get the numbers for the legislation to be passed by the House Seymour was forced to concede points until only the gutted shell of the bill was enacted.

    The worst concession was that which limited assisted suicide to those “suffering from a terminal illness that is likely to end their life within six months”.

    The Herald recently published an article https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/nz-euthanasia-laws-taupo-woman-with-degenerative-disease-denied-dignified-death-by-terminal-illness-rules/SBBCJZNUFNCNZD7ZNTVK7KU2AA/ which demonstrates how the meddling from Huey’s little helpers has condemned this poor woman & many others to a life of unrelenting pain.

    A review of the legislation is scheduled towards the end of this year. Let us hope that this time common sense takes precedence over superstition & magic.

          You have won the Polyanna of the Decade award. National are arch conservatives & in conservatism nothing changes regardless of the speeches from the hustings.

          For instance today’s headline in Pravda (formerly known as the Wairarapa Times-Age) reads: “Govt’s Speed Dating Dodge”. Labour’s nannies in the NZTA dropped the speed limits in Wairarapa’s lower valley reducing traffic to a crawl for the 37km from Masterton to Featherston.

          The Nats were elected on the basis that the limits be reviewed & revoked. I won’t bore readers with the Minister’s latest response to motorists asking “when” but rest assured that it’s bureaucratic, meaningless word soup.

        • Agreed stigie.

          Especially since Nikola Willis discovered that Robertson sold off everyone’s first born for the next 300 years to finance his spending.

          And ED needs to realise this is a coalition. Luxon is NOT running the country, as he has no portfolios. I doubted Luxon, but I see that there is hope. By having no portfolios but instead assigning them to the best person for the job, he is showing good management.

          Unlike Ardern who took personal control of plastic bags, gas and oil, child poverty, 1,000,000,000 trees, 100,000 houses, Covid, Vaccines, etc, etc, and in many cases overruling Medsafe, and specialist advisors.

          Ardern was a tyrant, Luxon is a facilitator, by delegating roles, and listening to the people he has assigned the roles to, and acting on their advice.

            Bullshit. That is similar to stating that he wasn’t running Air NZ because he didn’t draw up the flight rosters or oversee servicing the engines.

            He’s still a CEO & acts like one. He’s the public face of the National Party but if he doesn’t get behind his people & show them some loyalty he’ll be out on his ear before the next election.

          NN, no real curiousity to look around, to venture out, to see, listen for himself.

          That is why I liked Tony Ryall as Minister of Health, in getting out & popping into the hospitals despite the protestations of hospital boards & Ministry of Health.
          So far for Shane Reti, well he has ridden in the ambulances, & the system did not like that.
          Do not loose that curiousity Shane, keep on investigating with your eyes & listen to others where they can speak freely.

            A\Grew up wanting to be PM. slippery Key fucked that dream along with simo0n Power as well. Both would have made a top notch leadership. Power has an enormous memory for people and things. But of course AFIK neither are from the Vatican Party nor the Jewish estate.

        • I think the bureaucrats maybe trying to be like the DC swamp. I had coffee with a friend this week whose eldest daughter (middle aged) is a very senior bureaucrat in a large Government Department. In conversation with her father about a reasonably important issue she proudly said “we are not going to change”. In other words the public service has become very politicised and they will decide what they will do and what they think is best. They got away with it under Labour and they do not want lose their power.

        There was No NZ Crown as such. The sovernity was taken by the Queen and the British Parliament so the treaty was actually between the British Crown and the Chiefs.

            Its your meds that are the issue or rather the longterm effects of your previous consumption of illicit substances. A fact you have previously admitted.

            NZ has never had a Crown unless of course you are suggesting that the current Maori king possess one of significance. He is of course endeavouring to usurp the delegation of the British Crown’s responsibility that was given to our country when they ceeded sovereignty to this country.

            The Gov Gen (awful as she is ) is as you say a representative of the Crown whose apparent duty is to ensure that the government of the day passes laws that are can assented by the Crowns representative. i.e. hence the term Royal Assent.

            The British King, as he is today has to assent to the appointment of that Gov Gen. Still no NZ crown as such. Not until we become a republic when we can decide if we want someone to have that title. )Hopefully after people like Bolger have long been dead.)

            There can be no doubt this idea is entrenched behind much of this Maori King business.
            (Hold that thought for a minute or two and read on.)

            you said;
            ” read somewhere yesterday that maori believe the treaty was between them and the crown and not all New Zealanders as reasoning why there shouldnt be a referendum or public debate around the treaty….”
            “the treaty was between the crown and chiefs. ”

            My comment was, ” The sovernity was taken by the Queen and the British Parliament so the treaty was actually between the British Crown and the Chiefs.
            Perhaps they should be consulting both of those parties.”

            Which if you bother to check is the same as what you said. I simply pointed out that there was no such entity as a NZ Crown.

            Interestingly Tainui were not the first holder of the Maori King Title.

            You might just find this interesting.

            Hitiri said that in supporting the Kīngitanga, Māori wanted “to set up a head whose mana was to overshadow the land and protect it”.

            The Crown came to view the Kīngitanga movement was a challenge to the Queen’s sovereignty and sought to undermine the mana of the King.

            https://www.raukawasettlementjourney.org.nz/raukawa-and-the-crown/

            The Māori King Movement, called the Kīngitanga[a] in Māori, is a movement that arose among some of the Māori iwi (tribes) of New Zealand in the central North Island in the 1850s, to establish a role similar in status to that of the monarch of the British colonists, as a way of halting the alienation of Māori land.[4] The Māori monarch operates in a non-constitutional capacity with no legal or judicial power within the New Zealand government. Reigning monarchs retain the position of paramount chief of several iwi[5] and wield some power over these, especially within Tainui.

            So the Maori King Thing is a real behind the scenes thing to be head of NZ. Think about what you all hear and see daily about the entrenchment of maori values and so on. It is a 500 years view much like the Chinese.

            naaska might find this interesting about early Wairarapa.

            • ……”It is a 500 years view much like the Chinese.”…….

              Couldn’t disagree more. Maori are tribal first then when it suits them like the past thirty years they plaster over the cracks with a pan Maori agreement amongst the elites in order to fleece Whitey to the max.

              If they succeed in driving the tauiwi out of NZ they’ll resort to throwing each other into the hangi as before. They will regress until the last Maori dressed in rotting seal skins starves to death in a cave.

              It’s the Maori way.

              • Oh there may be a shit scrap but in the end its about owning NZ. If you doubt what I have said then consider how many very educated maori are in charge or in almost controlling positions in Govt. councils, other local bodies, Courts, Parliament , consultants and advisors.
                Like the Islamists and the Jews they may dislike one another but go to a fight and they fiught as a group. You will see.
                The goal is a Maori Monach. Has been for 150 years.

  14. Māori Kiwifruit Growers have received nearly $1 million in government funding to help increase their exports of the lucrative fruit.
    Māori Kiwifruit Growers gets $1m boost to help increase exports

    Māori Kiwifruit Growers have received nearly $1 million in government funding to help increase their exports of the lucrative fruit.

    The advocacy group with 42 members, mostly in Bay of Plenty, will receive $975,000 from the Ministry for Primary Industries’ Sustainable Food and Fibre Futures Fund over the next three years, topped up with a co-investment of $987,523.

    The project aims to increase the value of export earnings for growers, while re-affirming Aotearoa’s connections with indigenous peoples around the world.

      • The project aims to increase the value of export earnings for growers” I thought that was the job of Zespri?
        All this handing out money to the native farmers is doing, is perpetuating the myth that they cannot be good farmers.
        If I was a native kiwifruit grower I would be pissed off that they think I cannot foot it with whitey or all the indian growers.

        • Ed, exactly. Turners and Growers challenge in 2009 to export Kiwifruit in their own name failed. I do not understand how a whole pile of Natives can export Kiwifruit to traditional Zespri markets, with financial support from this Government and outside Australia, a one Marketeer policy, that being Zespri, by Legislation.

    • Makes me spew.
      A Maori outfit bought an established kiwifruit block in HB for over $30 m.
      I don’t think they are the only moori group that have bought in to the industry. Don’t see why funding should be given to any of them especially to help exports.
      Marketing is Zespris job.

      • I think the issue is that Zespri can’t be every where in marketing and the collaboration is very close.
        Some countries see Zespri as an organization that controls the market. Uncompetitive I guess and won’t allow them to trade in that country. This is not a new view at all. It has been around, from my memory, since late 80’s.
        The amounts are small but if they grow everyone benefits.

        I don’t necessarily support giving them cash though. Perhaps there is a reason for doing so. maybe marketing. Its bloody expensive in NZ let alone in countries like taiwan.
        Let’s wish them success because we need that for NZ.

        • V2, if you go back to the NZ Kiwifruit Marketing Board days where there were 7 Exporters controlling the sales and export of this product, to get market share, they competed against each other and drove the price of the fruit down. It was not good for this country.

          • Correct which is why it was abandoned. It would have created the lowest price in the market the buyers could negotiate and that was why Zespri came into being.
            As I see this that won’t be happening. The indians essentially control a lot of the industry now in including at least one of the packing companies who have quietly been trying to go back to their own exporting.

          • Fonterra have not exactly been a great operation since David Cun(t)liffe set it up 24 years ago.

            A single source operation.
            In fact the Goo-mint Dept Dairy Board was more innovative than this so called private sector snooze fest.
            They sorted out deals in the 1970s when mother
            (fucking ) England told ao tear zooland to F off as they were playing with the Europeans -the very ones they have been at war with for 1000 years.

  15. is today a celebration of covid masks or something.
    wtf is up with all the masked up sheep today? usually i see the odd weird asian wearing them still but today its all been white folk of varying ages and suprisingly more young then old and sadly many were driving alone ffs.

    i see probs 5-10 masked goons per week but today ive seen at least 30, a&p shows on so maybe the think its a super spreader event but youd think if theyre scared enough to wear a mask they would risk that level of social interaction.

  16. Hikpins is unimpressed by the Prime Minister’s cabinet reshuffle which saw Act leader David Seymour appointed Associate Minister of Justice to allow him to manage the Treaty Principles Bill.

    “I just think this is not the way to have this debate. There is a legitimate debate to be had around the principles of the Treaty and how our attitudes towards Te Tiriti have changed over time – how the interpretations of the different principles of the Treaty have changed over time.”

    “But it can’t be the government imposing its will on all of New Zealand. Actually, there are a lot of non-Māori who have a view on this as well and they deserve to be part of this conversation.

        • A little yapping dog of no value needs to be euthanised.
          —————————–
          Animal euthanasia is the act of killing an animal humanely, most commonly with injectable drugs. Reasons for euthanasia include
          incurable conditions or diseases,
          lack of resources to continue supporting the animal,
          a political dog gone barking mad
          or laboratory test procedures.
          Euthanasia methods are designed to cause minimal pain and distress

    • Public tv is a cancer

      Until the advanced date of November 1989 there were one then two goo-mint channels in ao tear zooland.

      That was pathetic,

      I only purchased a teevee device in 1990 when there was choice.
      goo-mint is no choice
      Sky and teevee 3 came on then

      The goo-mint channel(s) showed shit teevee in 1988/89 (so I understand from Marcia Russell book , never watched it ) in order to build up a $26 million (1989 dollars) war chest to send the private sector channel tv3 into receivership. Which they achieved in 6 months.

      Goo-mint teevee is and always has been , always will be pure evil .
      Expect no other result.

      Your mate Peter Williams collected a salary from the goo-mint channel for at least 30 years.
      Don’t trust him.
      How can he take 30 years of silver reading out fake gnews for decades then suddenly be inspired?
      Well, I ask ya .

      • Governments get warm, wet fuzzy feelings down their Y fronts at the thought of controlling the media. The first radio broadcast was made in NZ in 1921. By 1923 legislation was in place which divided the country into regions, specified frequencies & transmitter powers while banning advertising.

        By the time WW2 broke out the National Broadcasting Service owned all bar two radio stations.

        All that has happened in the past one hundred years is the honing of the delivery of state propaganda.
