  1. And a good morning to you all my fellow ‘Ferals’, ‘Freedom Fighters’, ‘Deplorables’, ‘Free Thinkers’ and ‘Unvaxxed’, on this beautiful Monday morning.

    Enjoy your day wherever you are and whatever you are doing, and, as always, DLTBGYD.

    • No Viking I didn’t sleep in, but I didn’t have anything to say this early in the morning and emptied the dishwasher after having friends to dinner and all that sort of thing.
      The bastards will not grind me down either TAH for probably the very same reasons. Been walking in the park for over an hour also. Beautiful day and the leaves in the park are a sight to behold as they are changing colour.

  2. How the social welfare works.
    Well the accommodation supplement to landlords
    BUT and this is missing. The many billions sent to Housing NZ tp screw the scrum.
    Stop doing both and the market will respond.

    Insread of allowing these KO subsidized people to move to more affluent towns like Tauranga build houses where they can afford to live if they don’t want to live.

    Hindreds of chicken coops being built for these people in expensive places. Send then back from whence they came.
    Be better for everyone.

    • Let’s abolish welfare for landlords first. Then they will cry, weep, throw their toys out of the cot & hopefully sell up their rentals. These hovels will be purchased at a now lower price by kiwis wanting to nest. This better class of stable, working people will be reliable employees. With these employees the former landlords can develop useful businesses which can employ more people who can then buy their own houses.

      What is there not to like about people with a stake in their own community?

      • i doubt many would sell up if the subsidies ended, rents may drop but i doubt it as the price has been set already and the immigration flood will hover up any spare rentals available… many immigrants dont mind sharing, 6 low wage workers renting together is more affordable then a low wage family of 4 trying to pay for the same property.
        i rekon its one of those things that the country could save hundreds of millions in taxpayer handouts with little effect on prices just plenty of sob stories from scummers unable to afford rents and now found themselves homeless due to their own poor life choices and reliance on handouts.

  3. so it’s all fun in aussie then?

    Australian small businesses are becoming insolvent at a rate faster than what was seen during the global financial crisis, as the Australian Tax Office (ATO) aggressively pursues billions of dollars of debt.

    As a result, call volumes at the Small Business Debt Helpline have surged by 82 percent compared with last year. That compares with a 17 percent rise for the broader-focused National Debt Helpline.

    The reason is clear: the rate of small business failure has already increased by 34 percent this financial year.

    In 2012, following the global financial crisis, the number of companies entering insolvency peaked at 10,757, with many experts predicting that the total could end up higher this year.

  4. In our region close to $4.0 million was granted to the District Council by the Provincial Growth Fund which was to go into low cost housing and a few other community projects to be established in conjunction with the local District Council..

    The low cost social housing development in Ohakune and Taumarunui did not happen, nor did any of the other projected public Infrastructure that was planned from this fund with the District Council coming under some criticism for it. But what happened was a proposal was made by some self interested Maori around Ngapuke to build a new Marae, so the funding for the Social Housing was taken off the District Council and given to local Maori to build a new Marae, instead. This Marae has taken more than 3 years to build, is substantial and still under construction with a commercial kitchen, solar panels, full fencing, meeting houses, the works. Bearing in mind, all Marae in this country are privately owned and not a public resource, this is an absolute disgrace on behalf of those operating the Provincial Growth Fund and the former Labour Government. A self interested Maori family operating this new Marae get preference for funding over the community as a whole.

    But this is not unusual, all Marae were painted in the Taumarunui Region, courtesy of the PGF and so it seems seriously funded, were Marae upgrades in Rotorua.

  5. Morning Troopers,

    Just wondering if anyone’s heard of any gang patches being confiscated. I think it’s about time Mitchell started showing some results. I rate the guy, but he’s talked a big game, and we need to see some actual action.

  6. Once upon a time in a far & remote land, the people looked up to the heavens. They prayed to their gods to bless them with tools, seeds, farm animals & send them messiahs in human form.

    And that’s the real story of how the Europeans arrived in NZ.

    • From BN’s link:

      ……”“As a 15-minute district, it is incredible,” says Moreno. “It is beautiful, it has proximity, social mixing, 50% of the inhabitants live in social housing, 25% in middle class and 25% own their homes.”…….

      This is what it’s actually all about. I doubt that it works in Paris & I KNOW that it wouldn’t work in Auckland. The 50% social housing sector would be gang infested & would prey on the other 50%. Everywhere it has been attempted, usually on the sly, we see the same results. Theft, graffiti, violence, white flight & the inevitable descent into ghettos.

      IOW everything the rabid left desires.

  7. One of Labour’s financial “cliffs”. Built the hospital but hadn’t set aside the future funding.

    Why Auckland’s new $300m hospital building is still empty
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/04/08/why-aucklands-new-300m-hospital-building-is-still-empty/

    A brand new surgical building the size of a provincial hospital is sitting empty on the grounds of North Shore Hospital, its opening delayed and no new date set.

    There are lights on and hospital beds in place in the four storey, 150-bed Tōtara Haumaru building, but it could be months before there are patients.

    It did not have the staff it needed, and the amount of money allocated to run it for the next financial year had not been decided.

    Funding to run the building for the next financial year (24/25) was still being decided.

  8. People’s trust in news has tumbled over the past year, survey shows.

    “Those who say they don’t trust and/or avoid the news are most concerned about the negativity of news, including its impact on their mental health, and what they perceive as political bias and opinion masquerading as news,” the report said.

    • The amazing revelation in the survey was that 33% of our fellow citizens still regarded the biased, editorial drivel dished up by the MSM as truth.

      Surely one in three of our fellow citizens are not so gullible as to confuse unrelenting leftist propaganda with facts.

  9. Imam and dairy farmer Reza Abdul-Jabbar fined over migrant worker exploitation

    The three workers came from Indonesia to work for the company on its Invercargill dairy farm, and were subject to numerous employment breaches during their time working between 2017 and 2022. They included not paying their workers minimum wage, nor their holidays, manipulating payslips, unlawful wage deductions and not keeping accurate wage records.

  12. Save taxpayer money by scrapping the CC scam budget and spend on essentials instead.

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/04/08/govt-reveals-targets-including-50k-people-off-benefit-by-2030/
    The Government has announced nine targets – including reducing the number of people on the benefit by 50,000, and reducing victims of violent crime by 20,000 – to be achieved by 2030.

    It also includes reducing those in emergency housing by 75% and increasing school attendance to 80% of students present for 90% of the term.

    The targets are, according to the Government:

    Reduced child and youth offending: 15% reduction in the total number of children and young people with serious and persistent offending behaviour.
    20,000 fewer people who are victims of an assault, robbery, or sexual assault.
    50,000 fewer people on Jobseeker Support Benefit.
    80% of students are present for more than 90% of the term.
    80% of Year 8 students at or above the expected curriculum level for their age in reading, writing and maths by December 2030.
    75% reduction of households in emergency housing.
    Be on track to meet New Zealand’s 2050 net zero climate change targets, with total net emissions of no more than 290 megatonnes from 2022 to 2025 and 305 megatonnes from 2026 to 2030.
    Shorter stays in emergency departments: 95% of patients to be admitted, discharged, or transferred from an emergency department within six hours.
    Shorter wait times for (elective) treatment: 95% of people wait less than four months for elective treatment.
    The last two targets were announced last month and the climate change target was announced by former Climate Change Minister James Shaw in 2022.

    “That’s why our Government is bringing back public service targets, to focus our public sector on driving better results for New Zealanders in health, education, law and order, work, housing, and the environment.

  13. why when i seen luxtards 2030 goals did i know 100% climate retardation and emission crap would be included.

    fuck off you bald piece of shit and wake up to the fact its all an expensive and bogus scam. if youre that dedicated to it then commit to it once india, china etc reduce their emission output by a decent amount. we’re miles ahead of them so whats the point in becoming the wokest most expensive country in the world to do business with.

    and why are the rest of the goals just pretty much what we had 10yrs ago and why the need to take 6yrs to get back to “the good old days”.
    fuck you and your ceo head up arseness approach to running a country.

        • They avoid the obvious
          Massively improve productivity
          [or productividy if you are a retard ]

          Health and safety shit has killed productivity.
          The only thing I can think of that was delivered on time in the last 10 years was the Coromandel; road 25A I think it might be.

          Any goo-mint contractors that don’t deliver on time and on budget should, at best have the bookkeeping taken over, and they only get paid direct cost of materials and labour.
          No markups.
          Tough, you banked the profit in the initial timeframe .
          The City Rail link in Akl is a prime example.
          Milking the taxpayer; and it is other peoples money so the goo-mint seat warmers just hand over more .

          Don’t put Steven Fkg Joyce in charge of anything to do with productivity.

    Chicken-free chicken maker Sunfed Meat shutting down

    One of New Zealand’s highest-profile plant-based “meat” start-ups, chicken-free chicken maker Sunfed Meats, is shutting up shop. Its founder blames the pandemic, but the shutdown has also occurred during a worldwide slump in consumer interest in plant-based meat.”

    @KeepingMum

    The Atlas Network and its proxies around the world pour money into discrediting mainstream media, like they do in New Zealand. What we see below is simply the fruits of their propaganda campaign and nothing to do with the PIJF or anything else.

  16. Brazil doesn’t want Twitter or X in it’s country because..Marxism.

    TWITTER FILES – BRAZIL

    Brazil is engaged in a sweeping crackdown on free speech led by a Supreme Court justice named Alexandre de Moraes.

    We are lifting all restrictions. This judge has applied massive fines, threatened to arrest our employees and cut off access to 𝕏 in Brazil.

    As a result, we will probably lose all revenue in Brazil and have to shut down our office there.

    But principles matter more than profit.

  17. So, there is a lot of talk about kids identifying as cats or dogs “furries”, they call them.
    Imagine if you can, that one of your kids told you they thought they were a cat?
    Sitting at the supper table son says: “Dad, I think l’m a cat!”
    Dad: “No son, you’re a boy!”
    Son: “No dad some of my friends at school identify as cats, they call themselves furries, and so do I!! It’s my right and you can’t do anything about it!”
    Dad:
    “OK!! ”
    Son: “Hey, where’s my supper?”
    Dad: “Your supper is in the catfood bowl in the corner. Now get off the table you mangy cat!”
    Son: “What???”
    Dad: hits him with a broom, “get off the table furball!!”
    Son: in the corner looking
    Son: in the corner looking bewildered!
    Mom: “Is that cat neutered”??
    Dad: “Nope.”
    Mom: “I will make an appointment!! ”
    Son: “What???”
    Dad: “Your mother and I have decided we don’t want a house cat, so get out to the barn and hunt mice!”
    Son: “What???”
    Dad: brandishes broom, “NOW, to the barn you stupid cat!!”
    Son: “Dad, I think I’m a boy!”
    Dad: “I thought so, now sit down and eat your supper!!”
    Now that’s what you call united parenting.
    Spay and neuter these animals. Stop them from reproducing. Today’s society has enough fruit loops already.
