    • Finally our 5000kw diesel generator is getting hooked up tomorrow. It will power all the essentials and keep the lights for our business. I have mates out on the Awhitu peninsular whose lights go out at least twice a week, they installed one last year works a treat solves the problem for essential items fridges etc.

  3. Morning all, from the usual foggiest King Country, but the stars are shining brilliantly this morning, with not a hint of cloud or fog.
    So we are at the frostiest time awaiting sunrise, after 7:00 am to kick in those with solar power units .
    Not the hardest frosts, but gives a hint how that numpty of month of July may go where “as the days get longer, the cold will get stronger”. Just a jolly good winter.

    The kettle boiled and a good start on the coffee.
    Motors have started, idling & demisting & defrosting so the heaters will be on full blast. 🙂
    Up and at ‘hem

  4. Further controls on the transport system in the near future.
    .
    ….. The UK and New South Wales have recently regulated for smart scheduling of EV charging and other controls.
    .
    The government has promised there will be rules here, too, to match a roll-out of 10,000 more chargers by 2030, such as with standards to help shift home-charging away from network peaks.
    .
    Running all at once, 10,000 fast chargers would suck up almost as much power as all of Auckland.
    .
    Smoothed out, like Vector had begun successfully doing for EV public buses in Auckland, the network would cope, Mackenzie said.
    .
    But for the family car, “we are not able to implement such a scheme without regulatory support”, its asset management plan said.
    .
    It needed industry standards to enable communications with chargers, and for smart chargers to connect to the management system. …..

    So eventually that “smart” will link to your digital & financial credit, & the first factor will be your “social credit”.

    Thank goodness there is some heating coming from an internal combustion engine, ICE. 🙂

    • Just wait a year or so when electric car values are so low no dealer will buy and insurers charge more than the shiyheap is worth, in the meantime Luxflakes terminate the public roll out of chargers soend the money on better healthcare workers, nurses and doctors, and show faith refuse the pay rise.

  5. Labour needs a bolder leader than Chris Hipkins – Matthew Hooton
    By Matthew Hooton
    10 May, 2024 05:00 AM

    Hooten has lost the plot again.
    Labour is irrelevant in this century and should be buried.
    The Nats have taken their place in the scheme of things.
    Everythiong has its time. Labours is stuffed.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/labour-needs-a-bolder-leader-than-chris-hipkins-matthew-hooton/22VR6MYC7RHLXCWI4FLBTLAC5Y/

    Like the unions it needs shutting down and the funds returned to the original owners not transferred to a few.

    • I stopped listening to Hooten after he told us Todd Muller was the answer to Nationals problems. He’s even less relevant than my hero and well forgotten yesterday’s man Jimmy Twomums. How sad life must be when the Horrid is the only publication that wants you and Simon Wilson.

  6. Pharmacies investigated for allegedly giving unnecessary immunisations
    Several pharmacies have temporarily stopped vaccinating patients after concerns were raised about their services. It comes as a scheme gets underway to allow pharmacies to administer child vaccinations.

    Three South Island pharmacies are being investigated over their vaccination services after reports that patients were being given extra immunisations they did not need.

    Health NZ – Te Whatu Ora and Medsafe began investigating after getting tip-offs that raised concerns about vaccinations at two pharmacies in Christchurch: Pharmacy Xtra in central Christchurch and Unichem Wigram.

    Medsafe group manager Chris James said that after these concerns were assessed, Medsafe also determined that action needed to be taken at a third pharmacy – Unichem Redwoodtown in Blenheim – to protect public health.

    “Medsafe has imposed additional operating conditions to restrict vaccination services being provided … while investigations continue,” he said.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/pharmacies-investigated-for-allegedly-giving-unnecessary-immunisations/KPT5BPM5P5FKLDDGEYUVRXT32I/

    The Orony is that MED Safe ticked of the phizer jabs after saying now but then succumbing to jabby cindy’s political pressure.
    They need to come clean on that then clean house.

  7. More yackety yack and wasting money

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/05/10/govts-climate-inquiry-announcement-receives-cross-party-support
    The Government this morning announced it will launch an inquiry into the development of a climate adaptation framework for New Zealand.

    A Notice of Motion giving the Finance and Expenditure Committee the power to carry out the inquiry received cross-party support in the House.

    “An enduring and long-term approach is needed to provide New Zealanders and the economy with certainty as the climate continues to change,” Climate Change Minister Simon Watts said.

    “It will help communities and businesses understand what investment is planned in their area, for example whether the council will build flood protection infrastructure, and what support will be available to help with recovery from events like slips or floods. It will also seek to improve the way we share information, so everyone can make informed decisions about how they manage risks,” Watts said.

  8. A man was being unfaithful to his wife until she came home unexpectedly early one day and caught him in the act with his lover. She lashed out at him and connected a windmill right cross to his jaw and knocked him out cold.
    When he regains consciousness he’s in his shed with his old fella trapped firmly in a vice. As she’d sawn off the lever that opens and closes the vice he couldn’t release his trouser ferret.
    Later on he sees her walking down to the shed with a huge knife in her hand. Seeing this he panics and begs as she enters the shed.
    Please, I beg you, dont cut off my pride and joy!
    She sets the knife down near the vice.
    Oh, I’m not going to do that. You are. I’ve come to set fire to the shed…..

    • I am still waiting for the global boiling which did NOT happen during summer and this winter not looking too good so far. Think it is time that some more power stations were built to cope with the useless battery powered cars, busses and trucks they are wanting people to buy. Better get Huntly power station going and and the coal mines operational again full time.

    • Metservice “computer modelling” said it was the coldest by understating the actual temperature, and advising people to turn off heaters (gee its really cold). Sort of like telling people to stay locked down at home, only eat supermarket food, and don’t go to the beach or outdoors for fresh air to push the sickness stats higher.

    • Well that is out and out Bullshit SB, for on the 4th October 2024 we, in the darkest King Country had a -6 Deg Frost, today was a miserly -5 Deg frost. Almost tepid.

      Either MetService or NIWA or both are lying. I can’t make up my which, both are habitual at it.

      • Why are so many days turning out to be Wacky Wednesdays?

        We ban coal-mining here to protect the planet and import coal from over there instead because carbon.
        We push everyone onto plant-based diets knowing that plants need carbon to grow.
        We have a global ‘health crisis’ so we sack health practitioners.
        We declare record cold temperatures and ask people to turn off their heating.
        What mind blowing lunacy will they have in store for us next?

      • HP, what i know is that the dero mother shouldve been charged with at minimum neglect causing death but possibly more had the useless cops handled it properly instead of drawing a conclusion first then forming an investigation and timeline to fit the desired outcome.
        theres a hell of alot of inconsistencies surrounding this case, plus ive spent alot of time where his body was found and i highly doubt a barefoot kid could end up there on his own without shredded and prickled feet.

        shit like this hits home big time for me, a month from now almost to the day i had to carry the casket of my best mates toddler son who died in very similar circumstances due to a piss poor neglectful mother. all i can say is from experience what is told to the police and the coroner by most in these situations is vastly different to the reality of what went down. dosent change the outcome of the childs fate but everything gets centered around protecting the mother when they probably shouldnt be.

    • and in fact the NZ Piggies will do better summersaults than Nadia Comaneci or Olga Korbut to avoid investigating. let alone arresting or prosecuting women for murder.

      —————–
      also fits in with the break out of MeToo movement in the last ten years that the traditional belief that women who cry rape are lying at least 9 out of 10 times.
      This is why it was downplayed in the past.

      We never saw the over-reaction the other way in NZ as they experienced in rotten old England.
      There was the case where the filthy pigs ruined a guys life by imprisoning him for 2 years before trial and he lost his job and freedom with massive psychological and financial damage .
      Based on a security camera at a train station which the filthy pigs had from the start. There was no actual contact. They took it all the way to court. There was no prosecution by the cops for her making a false statement.
      This happened many times in England over 7 or so years before it settled down.
      During the Cressida Dick era.

      In most countries now the cops are not far removed from the crooks. We are a long way from what Sir Robert Peel set up 200 years ago.
      I’m sure Hunty could tell us about Thai cops. There it is like a Multi level marketing system to extort money off citizens and visitors.

      Rape has been weaponised in the US as well .
      The false accusations of rape against both Donald Trump and Brett Kavanagh
      Both of these by the political party representing the Ku Klux Klan and slave owners.

    • I would go further considering the results of women in position of power – Clark/Ardern/Yellen/La grange/ but now and again briiliance – Thatcher/Golda Meir but then there are token males by gender who may as well be female – Hipkins/Robbers son/Parker I could go on but time is short.

  10. Turbo Cancer –

    Cholangiocarcinoma in 20 & 30 year olds (used to be a disease in 70 year olds) –

    once you get COVID-19 Vaccinated, “20 is the new 70”

    Imagine a “Genetic Vaccine” that gives a 20 year old diseases of a 70 year old

    California – 23 year old Sydney Towle was diagnosed with a cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) in August 2023 after doctors “discovered a sizeable mass in her stomach that had been growing for four months”.

  11. Dear Normies,

    Now the TV has officially told you the Astra Zeneca vaccines causes Blood Clotting you might want to check out Pfizer.

    Here’s 29 pages of known Side Effects from their experimental mRNA Vaccine from Pfizer themselves – yes the same Pfizer that just settled over 10,000 lawsuits for another Cancer inducing drug.

    Pfizer wanted this information suppressed for 75 years.

    Are you going to wait until the TV Tells you about all these? OR perhaps you might want to do your own research, ask questions & get angry about what you were coerced into injecting yourself with.

  13. https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/05/10/nz-first-introduces-controversial-bathroom-bill-to-parliament/
    New Zealand First is introducing its controversial Fair Access to Bathrooms Bill to Parliament today.

    The bill would require all new non-domestic publicly accessible buildings provide separate, clearly demarcated, unisex and single sex bathrooms.

    If passed, it would also introduce a fine, “for anyone who uses a single-sex toilet and is not of the sex for which that toilet has been designated”.

    The concept of the bill was not included in the coalition agreement, with Prime Minister Christopher Luxon rejecting and describing the idea as “on another planet” last year.

    New Zealand First leader Winston Peters added: “New Zealand First has listened to New Zealanders and we know that there is a silent majority anticipating such legislation”.

  14. Otago Regional Council should be removed from existence and savings credited to ratepayers. They are infected by Marxist gangrene.

    The last vestiges of 3 Waters Critical theory law, is being rammed through, propped up by the ghosts of Labour past. The Councillors seem headed to extinction, as were tasty Moa.

    This is paywalled. But reflects a communist push to implement laws in the Otago Region based on Jacinda’s spirit. What can man do against such reckless hate.

      Beyond Dysfunctional.
      —————–
      All joking aside, I find it bloody scary that after all the clear criminality in that lot and the call for more criminal behaviour from ricardo avocado that 1 in 7 people will still vote for them.

      More than either ACT or NZ First and not far removed from the two of these other parties combined.
      One may not like either ACT or NZ First ; sure they have their flaws, but they are the only ones actually standing between US and the Globalists that want us to have fkg nothing and somehow be happy about it.

      It is as fragile as that!

    # “The Department of Internal Affairs has abandoned an ambitious initiative to force social media platforms including Meta, YouTube and X to abide by a mandatory code of conduct to reduce online ills.”

    # “The centrepiece of the reforms would have been a new regulator, at arms-length from the Government, that would have had the power to fine large social media and internet-based content platforms for breaching rules designed to tackle harmful content.”

    An Auckland roading subcontractor has pleaded guilty to corruption charges after giving $626,000 in gifts and bribes to secure contracts.

    Frederick Pou was one of three subcontractors the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) said used bribes to be awarded road maintenance work by Broadspectrum roading contract manager Jason Koroheke.

    Koroheke and former maintenance manager Aurelian Mihai Hossu (also known as Michael Hossu) were also charged over the scheme.

    Hossu, pleaded guilty to four charges of acceptance of gifts by an agent in April 2022. He was ordered to pay $90,000 in reparations and sentenced to 11 months’ home detention in June 2023.

  18. Not exactly news but a classic instance of the Catholic Church covering up the behaviour of their priests:

    # “Longtime New Orleans Catholic priest Lawrence Hecker received a special honor from the Vatican nearly 25 years ago despite having confessed to molesting children. Then, for another two decades, church leaders in the city strategically shielded him from law enforcement and media exposure”

    # “…….Hecker lined him and other children up against a wall, ordered them to drop their pants and fondled their genitals.”

    # “The clinic concluded that Hecker was a pedophile who “takes little responsibility for his behavior” and recommended he refrain from ministering to “children, adolescents or other vulnerable individuals”.

    In the name of the Father, the Son & the Holy Ghost let me feel your bottom. 🙂

    • …….”the destruction of Britain’s car industry”……

      Too late by decades. The industry committed seppuku with the unveilings of the Austin Allegro, the Ford Fiesta, the Morris Marina & the Vauxhall Vectra. The process started in 1946 & continued unabated until everything was sold off to the Chinese & Indians who carried on with the traditions of shoddy workmanship, unreliability & poor quality R&D.

  19. The British government has issued a new guidebook to all sitting MPs to help them spot “conspiracy theories”.
    Oh, and just in case any of you are still caught up in the party politics illusion, the guide has full cross-party support.

    The report was co-written by “experts” representing several non-governmental organisations, and fact-checkers?
    Still, it’s reassuring to know that unnamed experts from billionaire-funded NGOs are writing “guides” teaching our elected officials about the dangers of wrong think.

    What a great way to “safeguard the integrity of our democratic process”. (I bet all western sitting MP puppets got one)

  20. “Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use… Therefore, I support legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce [28g] of marijuana.”

        The government needs to stay right out of the cannabis business. New Zealand made cannabis illegal in 1927. 97 years of incompetence and mismanagement are more than enough.

        • well my mate begs to differ, he just went to aussie and back with zero issues and took his 30gram buds “prescription” and vaporizer with him.

          your mate rissole had legal weed too if im not mistaken, although i guess his garden shed filled his own script requirements!

          i still dont think the answer is full scale industrialization and proliferation of drugs tho like you lot dream of. look at vaping, booze, perscription meds, they havent got any of it right but yea as you say the govts poo fingers are what fucks it but if theres zero regulation you just end up with the wild west.
