  1. I’m guessing Duncan Garner has a new gig coming up on some TV / Radio station as his image is on all sorts of different media outlets at the moment, the weird thing is as leftist as he was he was still better than the absolute trash masquerading as journalists on 95% of NZ media outlets right now.
    We should relish the demise of newshub as it’s probably the only way we will be slightly satisfied as to retribution for the lies they’ve told in aid of that filthy corrupt regime of Dame Ardern and her cabal of weirdos, Stuff is next for the chop, the first thing that will be noticed when the untalented 100s are sacked will be the huge uptick in both male and female sex workers on the streets as the top knot wearing former journalists come to the realisation that prostitution is the only profession they have really been training for since the Covid plandemic and the 100 million taxpayer dollars they they mistook for actual talent in keeping a job as a journalist..

  2. Whatever this is, “Ka Ora, Ka Ako” was an Initiative introduced by the Labour Government under Ardern. The Coalitian Government have appointed David Seymour to assess “Ka Ora, Ka Ako’s” impact and effectiveness on the country along with it’s cost to the country.

    Well the perpetually disturbed like Boyd Swinburn and those masquerading as “Health Charities” “have slammed” the Government (I do not know how you can “slam” a Government, but there again I am a failed Colonialist Taxpayer who is ignorant of the ins and outs of “slamming”) for appointing David Seymour to this undertaking.

    I can only assume, the “Health Charities” trough is about to be emptied and flushed out, the Troughers know it and are unhappy at the prospect that their food bag is about to become an empty scrap bag. Again, with the squealing of these entitled, financially well fed Piglets, I guess the Government must be on the right track.

    Oh, and from what I see, “Ka Ora, Ka Ako” is a programme of free lunches for children whose mothers and fathers are too lazy to provide school lunches for their school age offspring, unlike the rest of the functioning parents in this country.

    • Sorry to mention it, but you forgot about all the thousands of breakfasts that are also provided at some schools. Its a wondrous thing that the parents are so freaking lazy or spent their money on drugs and booze or cigarettes/tobacco and forgot the responsibility of feeding their many children as the taxpayers like you can provide food as well as all their benefits, rent top ups etc on and bloody on. It’s a gimme gimme gimme world and all the lefties are coming out of the woodwork to complain.

      • The more you do for people, the less they will do for themselves.

        Just how much aid and charity to give requires a fine balance and common sense. You don’t want to turn the social safety net into a hammock.

      • All part of the communist central planning Labour and the Greens had us heading towards. Grab the kids early to expect wheetbix and lunches from a central agency and you have them for life. The govt will provide everything. All praise the government.

        Disrupt the bastards. Make your own breakfast!!

        Morning all, grey and windy in the Waikato.

    • My 2 go to schools with lunch programs . The quality of the lunches has doubled this year . Must be up for review!! The stupid thing about these lunches is they are at 1,20 pm so they are really just feeding the kids before they go to after school sport.

  3. I am not a botherer of the God fella, but I had to laugh at this.

    The Church of England is employing a “Deconstructing Whiteness Officer” to combat racial injustice and who will weed out the few remaining white worshipers amongst their flock.

    Note the photo of God’s Emissary, who is appointing a person to this terribly important position.

    No wonder the C of E is fucked.

    • Regretfully WO, I am a disgruntled Old Aged Pensioner who is bound to mediocrity through birth of his “Whiteness” and whilst still working, am paying an excess of Tax, having my wealth redistributed to the perpetually lazy by Academics in Parliament who have never had a job outside Politics and in no need of a Religious crutch.

      As such, now being made almost financially destitute, it would pain me to tick the donation box you so kindly pointed out.

      • SB,

        We, the people, well some of them anyway, DEMAND:

        GST of Sunscreen
        GST off food,
        Hearing aid batteries to be paid for by the public purse,
        GST off this, free that, just gimmee, gimmee. The lack of ability or desire to get off ones’ fat lazy arse in this country and fend or provide for yourself and family, just shits me no end.

  6. At the risk of being labelled a butt hurt anti vaxer Stuffed have run an article this morning on a 44yr old woman who died from what her father called “turbo cancer”. No mention anywhere that the you know what could be an explanation but a nice mis-direct at the end with her mother recording that she had complained of a pain in her side years before-

    “After being diagnosed, Jade revealed to her mum that she had experienced a pain in her right hand side for quite a few years, but never got a doctor to check it out. Now Angela wonders if it was related – as the cancer was on the same side.”

    Comments from the Oncologist were interesting.

    “Jade had a particular type of bowel cancer called BRAF which her oncologist told Angela was “ripping through” young outwardly fit and healthy people. At the same time the oncologist was dealing with Jade, she had 12 others with the same type of bowel cancer, in the same age bracket.”

    I am not trying to demean the suffering this lady and her family have gone through. Any such death at a young age is tragic but the article seems to me a cynical attempt by stuffed to further muddy the waters and divert attention.

  7. Hubby just came through swearing. He received an email from Otago Fish and Game. Doing a survey on mental Health! Takes about 20 minutes.
    Emailed them back abusing them for wasting his licence fee on crap.
    No wonder we are going down the tubes. Fishing is supposed to be relaxing. Now every time he picks up his rod he will be reminded of this. How to wear us down eh.

  8. What’s this about the navy new boat needing new engines because some one filled up the fuel tank with water, or similar! Which Admiral is going to fall on his sword? Repair bill $9 mill, when painting the fuel intake a different colour may help. Or better still have water and fuel taps a different size, so they don’t fit each other!

  10. Mortgage pressure causing too many houses on the market and taking 6 weeks to sell.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2024/03/brad-olsen-says-pressure-is-continuing-to-hit-mortgage-holders-as-stock-levels-hit-eight-year-high.html
    Kiwis with mortgages are becoming “deeply uncomfortable” with the current rate levels as the cost of living crisis continues to bite.

    It comes after data released last week from realestate.co.nz showed there were 11,788 new residential listings in February, up 45 percent on the same month last year, and the highest number of new listings the website has received in the month of February since 2017.

  11. You could get 100 m3 delivered to your woodshed. Buy an $80 splitting axe from Bunnings or go with nasska’s version but be warned if you are contemplating splitting rings larger than 4-500mm in diameter you will require a hydraulic side lifter or the hernia will be part and parcel at no extra charge.

  13. NZ Justice system at it’s best. Seems it’s now ok to punch a 71yr old woman in the head.
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/nz-news/350200471/man-discharged-without-conviction-after-punching-71-year-old-posie-parker-event
    “Judge Kevin Glubb said the offending was moderately serious given the attack to the head.
    However he accepted the man was genuinely remorseful and acted in a way that was completely out of character.
    On the balance, given his neurodiversity Judge Glubb accepted a conviction would be out of proportion to the gravity of the offending and discharged. Judge Glubb said that did not detract the impact the offending had on the victim.”
    ps What the fuck is “neurodiverse”?

  14. New Zealand used its fiscal firepower while the economy was booming and will now cut spending in the middle of a recession, accentuating the downturn

    New Zealand has fallen deep into a per-capita recession and policymakers are likely to make it even worse with contractionary fiscal and monetary settings.

    That was the conclusion of one New York-based economic strategist attending Waikato University’s Economics Forum in Hamilton a few weeks ago.

    Dimitris Valatsas, the chief economist at US advisory firm Aurora Macro Strategy, said he found the presentations by NZ’s top policymakers to be “bizarre”.

    “New Zealand has ample fiscal space to support the economy and it seems bizarre to me that it is not being used — and even more bizarre that the Government feels there is a need to reduce spending right now,” he wrote in an email.
    “Policymakers have locked themselves into procyclical monetary and fiscal policy which, while deepening the slump, should support bonds,” it said.

    Economic orthodoxy would suggest that governments should step in to provide support during downturns and save surpluses during periods of strong growth.

    Matt Doocey was a director at the disgraced Tavistock Clinic in the Uk- the one that turned kids transgender.

    FFS – here is National MP Matt Doocey blaming the high Maori suicide rate on discrimination and colonisation – it would be nice if National MPs could refrain from repeating false and divisive left-wing talking points.

    • “…here is National MP Matt Doocey blaming the high Maori suicide rate on discrimination and colonisation…”

      I understand that a couple of generations ago, the Maori (and there would have been purer Maori then) had a lower suicide rate than the general population (and likely faced more blatant discrimination).

      Perhaps it took a hundred and sixty years (until 2000) for the effects of colonisation to manifest themselves?

    • Matt Doocey huh

      Tavistock huh.
      That place is a source of so much evil..

      Wiki says he is nephew of David Carter.
      Matt Doocey is another doolan that went to St Bedes
      ….along with Carter, Big Gerry,
      Peter Done and dusted
      Punch n grow Clayton Cosgrove
      Damien O’Connor

      about 10 years ago there were 6 bloody doolans from St Bedes in parliament.
      Some of them liebour.

      Doocey likely had tie-in with the Fabian society in the UK at Tavistock.
      Therefore in the Tony Bliar world.

  16. A police officer has been charged following the death of a motorcyclist who crashed on an Auckland off-ramp during a fleeing driver incident last year.

    Police signalled for the rider to stop on State Highway 18 about 10.20am on July 13 after units observed the vehicle speeding.

    “Following a legal opinion, police have now charged the officer with dangerous driving causing death.”

    The officer has been placed on restricted duties while matters are before the Auckland District Court.

    If convicted he could face up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $20,000.
