Will Justin Lester pay for his deal with Julie Anne Genter and betraying the Wellington Electorate well he deserves to but is 715 votes enough to give Andy Foster victory with 5000 special votes left to count.
Their should no place in Politics for people that use their own agenda to stop necessary Transport projects in a city that need changes to stop congestion.
Genter should go as well!
As a Wellingtonian I hope Lester goes but it is for far more than the JAG letter issue. Wellington has gone backwards in the last 5-10 years and the Mayor and his Council had no answers except waste rate payers money.
The WCC CEO obviously found Lester hard to work with —he resigned a few months back.
I could not afford that book it would be thousands of pages long.
…and say nothing. Not to mention it would “definidely” be full of spelling mistakes.
A great result in Tauranga with Tenby Powell winning the Mayoralty.
I hope it is
I just read some of the Tauranga future plans
They are planning to spend $7 million on cycle ways next year and $1m on the 15th ave upgrade.
And $12 million on cycle lanes the next year! and only $7m on 15th ave
Are they fuc…ng mad?
If only they would ride on them,
Yes interesting, like you I will watch this space, but it has to be better than the last Mayor.
And nothing on fixing the bridge. Nothing on Barkes Corner. A small fortune on replacing ALL the street lights with leds that are bloody useless. Millions on thew downtown instead of moving out of there and selling the land to developers to spend their own money on. Tenby has other idea’s about that. Council should move to 15 -16 Ave where they can be accessed easily. Those that work in The IRD building enjoy not having to go downtown.
Tauranga, yes bulldoze the whole city centre, its in the wrong place.
Make it for residential apartments, parks and maybe a small library or a small musem and a small art gallery.
It looks like half of the YSB members live in Tauranga. We should have a meet up and a beer or burger.
I’d be into that.
Was talking to a friend this morning who is a retired SAS soldier. Apparently Tenby has been the local Hauraki Regiment Colonel for the past while, but is resigning to devote his attention to the mayoralty.
The guy has a great profile, in the military and in business. Optimistic about what e can do for Tauranga.
So Diggy, what is your favourite watering hole? Keen to meet up with other YSB contributors.
I’m not a big drinker, so I don’t have a favorite.
But if you say the place date and time, I’ll be there.
Or you could ask the ed for my email address he has it.
I used to have a beer with a bunch of mates at the Bureta Park Tavern until 2014, then they bulldozed it and Countdown put up a supermarket. There is another new bar there now, but I don’t go there. Don’t often go to a bar nowadays, unless its with my sons or the odd occasion meet up with friends, as is being suggested. I’ll get in touch.
We should ask Simon.
I’m keen, I’m spending the next month’s worth of weekdays in Tauranga for work.
Okay, so it could be a week day – say a Thursday afternoon?
OK what about this Thursday afternoon at Lonestar downtown? Say 3 o’clock
I am sure that things were misunderstood? 🙁
The Jewish boy who was forced to kneel and kiss the shoes of a Muslim classmate has been sent threatening text messages.
The messages were sent Friday after photos of the incident were splashed across the front pages of newspapers in Australia and around the world, the Daily Mail reported. The photo was first published by the Australian Jewish News.
The messages told the 12-year-old boy that he would be slaughtered and asked if he wanted to “talk about suicide,” according to the report.
Some would say that Jews are looking to take advantage of being a victim again, and everything would be good when the “golden age” of islam returns.
known as dhimmis, a status that was later also extended to other non-Muslims like Hindus.
As dhimmis they were to be tolerated, and entitled to the protection and resources of the Ummah, the Muslim commonwealth.
In return they had to pay a tax known as the jizya in accordance with Quran. ….
…. enjoyed toleration and limited rights as long as they accepted Muslim superiority. These rights were legally established and enforced.
How kindly thoughts of the “golden age” and it seems muslims wish to return to this and will show that it is a pity that Australians do not help in gaining this.
Such a kindly peaceful religion //sarc.
I wonder how long it will be before we’re in open war.
We are in open war idiot. The West, on behalf of the putrid jew, had dropped more bombs on muslims than the entire history of warfare.
The world needs to unite to fix the jew problem permanently.
You need to take your meds you sick Cunt.
But if someone fixed “the jew problem”
We would still have the muslim problem.
And you know that islam says they must take over the world.
So whose side are you on?
I don’t remember when a Jew last went out and blew himself up to take as many innocents in the West with him, or used a gun, a knife or a truck in the West to kill as many as he could because of his religion (I’m not including any incidents the ME). Jews don’t commit terrorist attacks so they are ok by me.
The jew invented abrahamic religion. And communisim. And open borders. And the far left.
260 million dead
New Zealand hasn’t declared open war. We’re not fighting in the streets. Take your meds.
So, all the C.C bullshit that was passionately foisted upon us, was seen for what it was and then and only then they tell us the truth.
I am disgusted by the UN’s blatant hoax merely set up to rob humanity of it’s existence.
UN IPCC Official Admits ‘We Redistribute World’s Wealth By Climate Policy’
(EDENHOFER): Basically it’s a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization. The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War. Why? Because we have 11,000 gigatons of carbon in the coal reserves in the soil under our feet – and we must emit only 400 gigatons in the atmosphere if we want to keep the 2-degree target. 11 000 to 400 – there is no getting around the fact that most of the fossil reserves must remain in the soil.
Yes, but we have to get that into the MSM in a simple form that the plebs will believe and reverse their CC obsession
All the alternative energy sources are less than adequate.
Fossil fuel is what the world we live in was built with, there is nothing else.
Nuclear energy advancements have been hidden from us intentionally.
The goal of the UN is as sinister as it appears.
It is to throttle the life out of us.
The MSM are bullies hiding behind a dogma of inconsistent lies and snowflakery.
The guy misses out the relative data. In 2010 they worked out that human relate activity contributed about 9.5 gigatonnes into the atmosphere/yr but the oceans contributed 90-100 gigatonnes from “degassing” and rotting vegetation etc. contributed 50-60 gigatonnes. Therefore human related activity level is within the margin of error of the two main sources.
The way to do this is having everybody in tower blocks where entry and exit is controlled; you are totally reliant on food being delivered and all transport is public.
See the current pathways and Agenda 2030.
The current preference is to build up not out; push for public transport (no private car; cant visit the countryside anyway) slander farmers to get control of food production; and all communications whether fakebook; whatapp, text msg, Skype or whatever can be monitored.
The building blocks are in place towards totalitarianism and the children are being educated with newspeak and taught not to question. It only takes 2 generations. Ardern and Bridges and the under-40 Gween pardy MPs are phase one.
Climate lies are just a simple proof of concept.
Electric cars are bollocks idea otherwise we would buy them by the thousand – not even the Govt Depts are buying and it is policy -but the idea was to flood the place with these then declare we are destroying the earth with all the rare metals required. Remove electric cars. Rely on public transport only.
You have a swipe card to log on and log off transport so all movement is monitored.
Places like Netherlands had already declared no petrol car sales after 2025.
Electric cars are stupid in that most power would come from burning coal or oil then inefficiently transmitting and storing the power. Completely daft. This is all proof of concept.
Remember diesel cars were pushed circa 2005 and 10 years later … what a silly idea.
Of course it was.
This misinformation and confusion has already been done. In the 1980s eggs and cheese are bad- but wait, if you buy them in processed food -along with preservatives, food dye, and lots of other components they are suddenly good. Cheese is bad but have a pizza!
This proves how vulnerable people are to stupid ideas that a bit of thought can see are daft.
Soften the minds with lots of violent video games and Gigabytes of free po rn.
Just view the 2012 Remake of the movie “Dredd” to see how living like that in tower blocks works. Oh, and let the criminals loose on the streets. Shout out to Andrew Little.
You are correct.
Grid living in tower blocks is the goal.
Complete and utter control of every man, woman and child.
In the temporary digs I am in now, the section backed onto a beautiful park. Tall trees, manicured lawns and wildlife flourished.
Within 6 weeks it has been bulldozed and steamrolled. Piles have been rammed.
Drainage channels dug. Concrete driveways laid.
It is hideous.
The machine is unstoppable.
Still, at least we are not like China……yet.
Beijing Launches New Rule: Residents Must Pass Facial Recognition Test to Surf Internet
They use to call them gulags!
It used to be boys and girls swam together; and wee’d separately.
Now systems are bringing them together with “unisex” toilets in the name of incorporating a togetherness cohesion for genderism, and most likely a tad of diversity multiculturalism; but perhaps hides more of a cultural divide. shhh.
How about if you are a girl in a boy’s body?
Like Jimmy 2 Mums?
Question One: Do those who may wish to identify as a woman allowed in – they may just want to sit in the changing room for a while?
Question Two: Do those who may be clothed in an all enveloping burka or such wish to disrobe in front of a those who do not and would they therefor be allowed to dress separately, perhaps in the mens changing room?
Changing room, that’s apt.
‘Awoken a monster’ – Defeated Auckland mayoral contender John Tamihere hints at what’s next on his agenda
Tamahere blames being brown and a conspiracy between Labour and National for keeping him from winning the mayoralty. Now he is determined to win to a place at the trough through the general election.
I’m surprised he hasn’t tried to blame it on colonialism.
He’s quite a manic little narcissist. His buddy Willie Jackson will be urging him on to stand at the election so he can have his mate back in Parliament. Will WJ be re-elected or disappear in the knockout landslide that is going to befall the COL next year?
I think he was list, but with so many on the list, you need some to be elected!
Some of the student audience seem to be embarrassed as the point is made to them.
Capitalism Cures Poverty
3m 03 sec.
Did those students even get a taste of the “red pill” or simply spat it out, and now continue with Extinction Rebellion for the easy life.
I’ve seen that clip before. I reckon that smirking kid is a died in the wool socialist Marxist who thought he had it all worked out and can’t believe what he is hearing. The speaker’s message made sense to him but denial is not just a river in Egypt.
Yes,,, the denial morphing onto another part of socialist Marxism, like climate change, and strong arming into Extinction Rebellion.
I saw on the daily mail that the Extinction Rebellion lot are receiving up to 400 pounds a week from some source for their participation in the rallies. .
They also claim successes, like getting Parliament and Councils to accept an “Emergency”.
London, protesters can join small “affinity groups”, who support each other and communicate largely via encrypted mobile apps Signal and Telegram.
Some even crowdfund legal fees for those who want to be an “arrestable”. ….
….. Extinction Rebellion’s head of finance, Andrew Medhurst, said that the group has earmarked about US$1.2m for October in London to pay for entertainment, portable toilets, and meals for around 20,000 a day.
He also said that over the past year the group has paid about 190 of its activists, who can claim up to US$500 a week.
Over the past year, Extinction Rebellion has raised US$2.8m through a mix of crowdfunding and big donations from the likes of Radiohead and an American organisation called the Climate Emergency Fund. …..
It seems to have become a business, and will be expecting tithes, donations. sponsorship, then protection money, bribes. etc.
Makes our “rent-a-mobs” look completely disorganised.
So the financial infrastructure is being put together.
….. Although, the group insists on having a policy of financial transparency, they say they do so “without compromising the privacy of individuals”.
Their donation policy explains: “We have a policy of openness, and the names of those who donate over £5,000 are made available unless there is a particular reason for a request for them to be anonymous.
Yeah right, keep the big names, shake downs, and their links quiet.
As often said “follow the money” or how they rip it off you, particularly in extorting and demanding with menace.
so guess who will be charged by the PC police?
An attempted vehicle theft has ended with one man in hospital with a life-threatening head injury.
Police responded to a report of a car heist on the motorway-end of Te Atatu Rd in west Auckland just after 4am.
A police spokeswoman said a person had reportedly found two men breaking into their vehicle.
Yes, and we’re all paying for these scum to do this via our taxes for the police and jails and via our insurance premiums for cars that are stolen and then damaged.
They need to start putting those criminals to hard labour to repay the damage and costs they have caused.
That will soon stop all of that crime.
Need to crowd fund the best lawyer in town to support him!
It only happened yesterday?
The police might not charge him!
I hope they don’t
Of course they will. Plod always charge the iinnocent and let the culprit go free.
Individuals, business encouraged to use alt text to help visually impaired understand online content
“Alt Text is extra detail you can add to a photo before you post it, with the visually impaired in mind.
“The alt text is basically describing what’s in the photo for people using screen reader software,” Digital Accessibility Advisor Chandra Harrison explained”
As someone who has reached the time of life where I definitely have to wear reading glasses, I’d just like a readable sized font to be used especially in the case of instructions on packets! I’ve discovered an easy solution: take a photo on your phone and enlarge it on your screen!
Attack on a Mosque in Burkino Faso 15 killed
Our news media did not tell us that last week 20 people were killed by an Islamist group in the north of the country.
This is another example of why the Christchurch call for diversidy does not work and that my Christchurch Example is better.
They should just push them all into the desert where the ragheads belong.
This TV3 poll tonight should be very interesting.
Lester gone. How sad.
We have a Council of 11 women and 4 men now so they cannot blame it on “the middle/old aged white guys” any more.
Seriously, it will be interesting see if a women dominated council makes a positive difference –I hope it does.
Just like delahunty did? 😆
From Hawkes Bay I can report that Chris Tremain , ex National, lost out in his bid to be Napier Mayor.I think people see his links to China.
The Regional Council now has three ex government troughers .Rick daylight saving Barker , ex NZ First dawk Kirton and now Craig Foss, ex incompetent National minister.
The green yank in Hastings lost his seat to Foss.
Martin Williams won a seat in Napier.I think he may be the guy that comments on KB.He is a lefty lawyer right into the TOW .Why on earth a lawyer wants to sit on a council I can’t figure out.
The Martin Williams that comments on KB said that he was using a pseudonym.
I wonder if the real Martin Williams knows that an idiot is posting under his name.
I had thought of contacting the Napier Lawyer Martin Williams to ask him why the hell he was posting xenophobic muck about me… so I looked him up and decided nah… he could do his own dirty work and contact Kiwiblog himself if he was worried about the comments appearing under his moniker.
Tremain’s credentials – my old man was an all black.
He has done OK in real estate but was a lightweight short term MP who was a dead loss cruiser as Minister of Local Govt . Would be not much better as Mayor but possibly, just possibly, his real estate holdings would be helped by his being Mayor. Allegedly!
Foss was wet and weak. I met him on the campaign trail in 2008 as he was trying to be an MP. He inspired me… to get another cup of coffee – to stay awake.
Tremain hasn’t been a councillor and didn’t offer himself for council, and the ‘my old mans an all black’ stuff will only get you so far when you have to be of an age to remember.
His ‘mayor or bust’ stance was seen as arrogant by many.
Why should he just step in and sweep aside others who had done their apprenticeship? The new mayor has done two terms on Napier City Council.
I heard a doozy of a rumour as to why Tremain did not seek second term/reelection.. Any others here it or confirm its validitdy? (misspelling is a clue)
Did he do what most in the labour pardy do, screw each other or someone else?
Ed…do you have a tip line?
Nah I am adept at reading between the lines, tea leaves or crystal balls
send me an email email@example.com
You will just have to “read between the lines” then.
see my addition to my last reply. I misunderstood your comment.
I’d heard something like that, but never seen it verified.
Dave Rubin – Why I left the Left
Lester is out and Foster is in. Good job..on ya way Lester.
Now, let’s see that letter JAG wrote.
Socialism fails every time
Take note Winston, Cindy, Robbo and co. Your are crashing and burning our economy under YOUR policies. Capitalism wasn’t dead until you took power.
Capitalism is the only means the Socialists have to pay for their policies. I don’t know why they’re so against it, without it they’d be nothing more than hot air.
Is Fascism really Right or Left?
Fascism = True Democracy
– Individuals willingly subordinate themselves to the State
Good read about our history and the savages.
Sir Elton John says if he could be any woman alive, he’d be Jacinda Ardern
Lefties are wet. At least choose someone with a brain Elton.
How nice. A queen paying homage to our royalty. 🙂
Wait…are you saying Sir Elton John is a mincer?
I’m starting to think holding ones candle in the wind might mean something else.
His arse has been nailed more times than wooden framework!
I think I can use this information in my up and coming edition of the “Gayford Chronicle”
Can you suggest any witnesses that can corroborate your statement?
Elton’s husband David Furnish would know:
Oh goody, some more revelations about what makes a wanker tick.
EXCLUSIVE – Polish MP: Soros ‘Wants to Rule the World’ as ‘Master of Puppets’
Soros’s supporters have long claimed he is merely a wealthy philanthropist and dismissed his detractors as conspiracy theorists, but the billionaire did confess in his 1987 book The Alchemy of Finance that he “always harboured an exaggerated view of my self-importance” and “fancied myself as some kind of god” from an early age.
On police pursuit, what do you think – should the police pursue and catch the criminals or ignore them?
(That is when they’re not off on a hui, or a sing along or otherwise enforcing our feeble masters’ wishes)
No they should catch them and run them into the nearest power pole.
Just noticed the links are no longer inducing delusions of Labour. Thank you Ed, it’s a small tweak but a welcome one.
we try to please.
Poll: Jacinda Ardern’s personal brand takes a bashing, Simon Bridges gets a bump and Judith Collins loses her mojo
Jacinda Ardern’s personal popularity has been tarnished by a cacophony of cock-ups and controversies.
Simon Bridges has had a bump, but is still totally out of Ardern’s league.
Newshub’s latest Newshub-Reid Research Poll shows just how tied Ardern’s personal popularity is to the Labour Party.
In the Preferred Prime Minister stakes, Ardern has taken a massive drop of 10.6 percent, settling at 38.4 – almost matching Labour’s slide in Newshub’s poll.
Simon Bridges gets a 2.5 percent bump to 6.7.
There’s even better news for Bridges – Judith Collins is losing her mojo, down 1.9 percent to a 5.2 approval rating.
Great news for National supporters.
But I was disgusted at the language being used.
To say that Ardern’s popularidy was tarnished by a cacophony of “cock-ups” is disgusting during family hours viewing.
I might complain to the Broadcasting standards authority.
Get a life digi
More to worry about than those words
Do your homework first:
……”The British expression ‘cock-up’ isn’t commonly used in the USA, where it is generally assumed to have a vulgar meaning. What they might make of Robert Burns’ poem, which took the name of the old Scottish rhyme ‘Cock up your beaver’, is best left to the imagination. What Burns was actually referring to was adorning a beaver fur hat by putting a cock’s feather into it. “……
That’s Labours problem, always has been!
They just can’t wait to get the cock up!
There are so many piss weak in that mob they would be lucky to get it up.
As a great admirer of the Scots Bard, I must share this wee yarn..
A new doctor to a Glaswegian Hospital is taking an induction tour with the Hospital Superintendent. In the first ward, the new doctor introduces himself to a patient and is met with, “Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu’ sprush, We’ll over the border, and gie them a brush.”
Taken back, the doctor moves on to another patient and after his introduction the patient responds with, “Wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim’rous beastie, O, what a pannic’s in thy breastie!Thou need na start awa sae hasty,Wi’ bickering brattle!”
The doctor turns to another patient and and before he can get a word in the patient bellows out, “Ha! whaur ye gaun, ye crowlin ferlie?
Your impudence protects you sairly; I canna say but ye strunt rarely,
Owre gauze and lace;Tho’, faith! I fear ye dine but sparely
On sic a place.”
The doctor turns to the Superintendent and asks, “is this the psychiatric ward we’re in?”
“No, it’s the Serious Burns Unit”, replies the Superintendent.
Good news, although it could be better….
Yes a big drop for Labour and Ardern.
From your link:
……”when Labour’s magic weapon loses its power, the party does too”……
Without PriNZess they’re finished……not even the Greens could get them over the line.
If the Vatican Party want to be in a position to return NZ to the 50s then they’d better start chipping away at Ardern’s pedestal.
Concerning NZF went up 1.2%. Honestly, when will people learn not to trust the narcissistic troll?
and in a similar vein https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/shows/2019/06/poll-do-you-think-the-government-is-doing-a-mostly-good-job-or-a-mostly-bad-job.html
Mostly good 24%
Mostly bad 76%
Needless to say I added my voice to the dissenters. 😁
You’re right Diggy. 😂
Do you have a time machine? I think that was in June!

Love is in the air for woman sexually attracted to an airplane
October 11, 2019
Prepare for takeoff. Meet Michele Köbke, a 30-year-old from Berlin, Germany, who’s in love with an airplane. She has objectophilia — sexual or romantic attraction to an object — and claims she’s in a relationship with a Boeing 737-800. Watch her unique journey, including how she cuddles with a model airplane at home and her tearful in-person visit with the “beautiful” aircraft.
Bet she loved being in the cockpit.
A 737-800. Out of all the planes she chose that. There is something wrong with her.
