  1. Talking about Free Speech
    I read yesterday in the online Bay of Plenty Times that our new mayor Tenby Powell has asked our new Councillor Andrew Hollis to resign for his comments on the treaty of Waiting.
    I had already emailed Andrew to support him and he thanked me
    Andrews email is andrew.hollis71@gmail.com

    • They will soon be demanding things before they are born.

      There were three babies in a woman’s womb, and they were discussing what they would like to be when they were out in the world and grown up.

      The first one said “I wanna be a plumber.” The others laughed at this, and asked why he wanted be be a plumber. He replied, “So I can fix the pipes in here, it’s kinda leaky.”

      The second one said “I wanna be an electrician.” The others thought this was kind of silly too and asked why. The second baby answered, “So I can get some lights in here, its dark!”

      The third one said, “I wanna be a boxer.” The others thought this was hilarious, and laughed for a full five minutes, before asking, “Why in God’s name do you want to be a boxer?”

      He replied, “So,” he said proudly, “I can beat the hell out of that bald guy who keeps coming in here and spitting on us.

    • The age of the kinderguru is upon us:
      “A” is for apple,
      “M” is for manipulation
      “P” is for propaganda

      Children should not be used for political advantage. It’s WRONG but apparently acceptable when the Left do it.

  2. Mike Loder doesn’t hold back in the Kiwi Gun Blog submission to the Select Committee, good stuff which needs saying. I didn’t know how biased the head of the committee has shown herself to be, a clear conflict of interest here, though it hardly surprises me given that the reason the Arms Act was put in front of the Finance Committee is that it has a clear Labour majority. Impartial – Yeah right!

      • The preferred option is National and party vote ACT, but National will need to stiffen the jelly thing that passes for a spine at the moment. NZ First are dead to a quarter million gun owners. Fool me once…..you know the rest.

        • I could be totally wrong, and the election will determine if I am, but I predict NZ First won’t get to the 5% threshold this time. Winnie tries to be all things to all Kiwis and says whatever the hell pleases the crowd he’s barking to. He is now trying to distance himself from the Labour/Greens in anticipation of major disaster come election time. Simon best show him both middle fingers and let it die. Don’t be a political whore like Winnie and stick to your core principles through thick and thin.

          C’mon National & ACT take the steering wheel next year and rule all. Turn on the fire hydrant of leftie tears 🙂

          If the polls look really tight and National has no partner other than Act with say 1 seat, then the alternative would be a Labour/Green coalition.
          In that case I would consider voting for NZF, other wise the COl would go hard out left!
          In the meantime I will be working as hard as I can to get National up in the polls

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2019/10/uk-police-investigate-origin-of-truck-found-carrying-39-bodies.html

    “The truck was thought to have entered Britain at Holyhead, a North Wales port that is a major entry point for traffic from Ireland, on Saturday and to have originally started its journey in Bulgaria, police said.

    The driver of the truck, a 25-year-old man from Northern Ireland, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is in custody.”

  4. Wow I got logged in this morning after a week of hit and miss.
    It just shows you when the Labour Party need votes they swallow dead rats and go out of there way to try policies that will encourage farmers to get on board. The hate they have shown the Agriculture sector in the past has turned into groveling so they can change the emissions bill.

  5. I cannot wait for the knives to come out over this Auckland fire- when it comes to the building code, fire safety is taken very seriously. One of the critical things we look at is the flammability/combustion properties of roof and wall claddings. Now let’s get this straight- Straw + plywood + bitumen-based torch applied membrane over the top. What could go wrong? I have a feeling whatever officer approved that design was forced to for political reasons. “Look at how GREEN we are! We are offsetting our footprint with this amazing GREEN roof!” Yay Sky City you’re setting an example for the world to follow!” Anyone remember that apartment tower in London that was ablaze in minutes and killed hundreds? Highly combustible cladding. I so hope the press leaves not one stone unturned to get to the bottom of who put there approved stamp on that disaster. I wanna see heads roll! What just happened to one of the largest construction projects in NZ is exactly what we have been taught for years and years NOT TO DO!

    Ok I’ve had my rant lol. Auckland taxpayers are about to be screwed over by blatant incompetence, yet again.

    • Good point ducklin.
      Winston Peters in the recent past was pushing his woolly thinking.
      https://i.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/94568296/winston-peters-wants-government-departments-to-have-wool-carpets

      The greens are blatantly against dairy cows, and with the vegetarian vegan part are opposed to farming any livestock.
      No one is to eat any meat, and so no point in sheep with the byproduct of wool.

      Point the finger at the greens who thought the carbon foot print would be close to zero, and Winston will come out and say “I told you so” and how he was right in being against that type of ‘greeny’ thinking.

      It is all “virtue signals” “feelz”, and enough “tick boxes”, with no understanding.

    • I thought the same thing about “green” cladding. The use of straw, etc sounds typical of greenie thinking and downright dangerous. There will be no political blowback. Just look at Pike River where the Greens wouldn’t allow Pike River to be an open cast mine despite being the only safe way to mine coal, and the Greens wouldn’t allow an extra vent to be drilled into Pike River mine to save disrupting the environment above. No blame, nothing, nada, crickets…

  7. Never complain about length of detour again, 🙁
    Big country, big detours.

    WENTWORTH TO BROKEN HILL Silver City Hwy on Bunnerungee Bridge over Great Darling Anabranch (approximately 65km north of Wentworth)
    EMERGENCY ROADWORK Bridge repairs
    Started yesterday 6:03pm, last checked today 8:12am
    Impact: Impact Highway closed in both directions.
    Diversions:
    Motorists should divert via Hay and Wilcannia using Sturt Hwy, Cobb Hwy and Barrier Hwy – this will add an extra nine hours to your journey.

    Motorists choosing to travel via South Australia as an alternative should visit traffic.sa.gov.au for road conditions.

    (Note: The Barrier Hwy is currently closed due to a serious accident, so delay your journey).

    Attending: Local Council, Transport for NSW
    Advice: Allow extra travel time
    Avoid the area; Use diversions
    Other Info: The bridge is closed until further notice.

    https://www.livetraffic.com/desktop.html#textview

    Must be a ‘+bit’ more time if you just wanted to go to the other side.
    https://www.sunraysiadaily.com.au/news/875296/silver-city-highway-closed-in-both-directions

    Camping at the bridge rest area is free, if you are on the lucky side.

  8. I see that guy who tried to smuggle the people in a truck was “in a relationship”.

    So from now onwards will the police be telling us if an offender is in a relationship.
    Eg
    The offender was decribed as being in a relationship!

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2019/10/government-expected-to-announce-agriculture-will-not-enter-emissions-trading-scheme.html

    “He said that includes pursuing action consistent with the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement, including “recognising the fundamental priority of food production”.

    The group’s press release suggests a “five-year programme of action” will be announced, “aimed at ensuring farmers and growers are equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to deliver emissions reductions while maintaining profitability”.

      • Thanks for that, Ross. I needed a laugh. The idea that National would even suggest that farming should be immune from attack by the eco-wreckers’ mad ETS is pure comedy.

        National are a bunch of wet dribbles and most of the eco-bullshit that is crippling NZ is supported by them…. so don’t hold your breath.

    • Hong Kong Extradition Bill was just one of many things that the protestors and people of Hong Kong were concerned about.
      Whether they’re pro-imperialist or not, they are pro-democracy.
      British Hong Kong may not have been the best, but democracy is better than communism.

      Perhaps Xi can see that this could overflow into China, and really become out of control, the last time being Tienanmen Square, and may flow through to the Uighur campaign.

      After all it is Xi’s governor that runs Hong Kong, so he still retains his control, even if it has to be not so blatant.

  10. It seems Labour and the Greens think they can just bypass the OIO when they need to allow the purchases of land in NZ. Eugene Sage with David Clark have allowed a Japenese Company to purchace a large block of land in which they will turn into forestry without going through the designated authorities the Overseas Investment Office and virtually given two fingers to NZ Law in making the decision.

  12. The fire in the international money laundering centre still hasn’t been completely extinguished, with reports coming in about firefightiing delays caused by Tohunga blessings on the water and Green party assessment of the carbon footprint of the smoke. Also the question of who owns the water used has still to be resolved.

    A spokesbeing for the NZ architect is quoted as saying that, in hindsight, combining 17th century insulation materials with 20th century waterproofing might have been a mistake. In future, they said, buildings would be fully integrated into more sustainable 15th century building materials such as thatch and wooden (eco) beams.

    In the meantime, Sky City denied that they had demanded their bribe money be refunded by the council’s building ‘consent’ team. They said that their bold move towards green philosophy is still an ongoing process.

    More details to follow.

    • As Aotearoa (formerly New Zealand) slides quietly into the Third World, questions are not being asked about the lack of their ability to extinguish a fire within three days.

      A spokesbeing for the country’s FENZ (formerly Fire Service) explained that before squirting water at a fire, there were important rituals and eco-cleansing protocols to observe. “You gotta check that taniwhas aren’t going to be angered, which I’m sure everyone will agree would only make things worse” it said. Also there was the question of who owned the air space where the fire fighting extension arms would be deployed, as well as the moral question of whether or not to go against nature’s will.

      These are very important considerations and citizens are proud that the authorities aren’t rushing in and just putting out the flames without due consideration of all the ramifications.

      Meanwhile, the beautiful glow of hotspots burning through the night are sure to give nearby apartment dwellers a calming glow and pretty lights.

  13. Interesting video from the States. As the government and a small number of senior police in this country work to destroy the formerly excellent relationship between licenced firearm owners and police this may well be where we are heading in this country.
    How does this make any of us safer and in whose best interests is it to turn the once respected police force into politicized thug enforcers for the government?

  14. China has agreed to a cap, but not zero emissions..

    China is expanding its coal power infrastructure despite pledges to curb carbon emissions.

    Analysis reveals that the amount allocated to large infrastructure projects by Beijing has doubled this year, with airports and high-speed rail lines among 21 schemes allocated a total of £83.9 billion.

    Included in the new allocations is funding for 17 new coal mines across China, despite Beijing’s pledges to reduce reliance on the power source.
    Seven mines were approved last year and, between 2017 and 2018, China added 194 million tonnes of coal mining capacity with the total number of mines reaching more than 3,000
    [rest is behind paywall]
    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/world/china-feeds-coal-addiction-with-17-new-mines-this-year-cz995wj9t?fbclid=IwAR2ygELGC1ndbFA39KLiDQdNWPghF7ndTy5BcFyDqvaj-GWgznwKMC_aquU

    Then their are other coal fields , like the Australian Adani coal field for India.
    Plus coal power stations being developed around the world.
    Then even bigger than Adani

    Palmer’s Waratah Coal applied to Australia’s Department of Natural Resources on Oct. 4 for a 35-year mining lease in the Galilee Basin, a new coal region that won the green light this year for development.
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-australia-mining-coal/australian-mining-magnate-applies-for-big-new-coal-mine-idUSKBN1X101S just a few days ago.

    When and at what level will China’s cap kick in?
    Some governments have precedents in recalibration.
    Perhaps the caps may be recalibrated?

    • China has 280 times the population of New Zealand
      So they will need 280 times as much power as New Zealand
      So aside from solar or wind what else is there other than nuclear.

      Remember they also manufacture most of the wolrd’s goods, so they are using electricity on our behalf.

      Just as New Zealand produces co2 and methane producing food for the rest of the world.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/travel/2019/10/map-reveals-world-s-weirdest-tourism-slogans.html

    “Among the slogans are simple ones such as ‘No Stress’ in Cape Verde, through to over-the-top ones like ‘Honduras, Everything is Here’, and ‘Happiest Place on Earth!’ from Denmark.

    Frequent viewers of international news or documentary channels will be familiar with these two slogans: ‘Incredible India’ and ‘Malaysia, Truly Asia’. These themes have become synonymous with their destinations.

    Then there’s a handful that sound like they’re advertising anything but a holiday destination, such as Latvia’s ‘Best Enjoyed Slowly’ and ‘Being First has its Rewards’ from East Timor.”

  17. A rule for thee, but not for council .

    it was currently going in to the storm water network and being discharged into the Viaduct Basin. …
    “We don’t take it lightly to pump it out into the environment and as soon as we can stop pumping it out into the environment we will.”

    http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL1910/S00100/skycity-fire-eight-million-litres-of-water-in-basement.htm

    So in the mean time, they do not even try to stop the flow.

    Pouring water all over the place, and they seemed surprised.
    No accountability, no responsibility.
    Any one else having difficulties and being slow doing the testing, then mitigating, not having plans, preparations in place, etc..would be heavily fined, even if it was a one off.
    They call it “managing risk” but it is only from their point of view, as serious toxins may upset the bio system part of the treatment for waste water and if that happens then discharge the lot to the harbour.
    A blind way of coping with Health & Safety risks, risks etc… 🙁

    Yeah, I know, it would mean the council would need to double, quadruple or more the rates.

    Stuffs up the idea that all rate payers will benefit

    • I heard they were going to pump the water out of Sky Cities basement into the viaduct basin but now they are saying this:

      “According to Auckland Council’s Safeswim manager Nick Vigar, the water is currently being discharged in the viaduct basin around Beaumont Street.

      “We don’t take it lightly to pump it out into the environment and as soon as we can stop pumping it out into the environment we will,” he told media this afternoon.

      However, they are looking at an alternative plan that will see the contaminated water pumped into a wastewater treatment plant in Manukau.

      Testing is being done on the water to determine where it ends up.

      For now a water hazard alert has been issued for St Mary’s Bay warning the public of “reports of hazardous substances released into bay.”

      The council is testing the water for combustion products and hydrocarbons among other things for impact on ecology.”

    “Deputy Prime Minister and New Zealand First leader Winston Peters has faith in the public’s ability to make the right decision.

    “They’ve got the brains, they’ve got the intelligence, they’ve got the experience, you make sure they get the information it will be fine” he said.”

    Nice of Peters to acknowledge the public are capable to understand the subject. He didn’t believe we were capable enough to discuss the UN Immigration Pact with us before he secretly signed it on our behalf. Prick!

  21. Learned something new today.

    ‘Future faking’:

    Future faking is, fundamentally, promising a future that the manipulator has no intention of acting towards, making promises that they won’t keep. Instead, they distort reality to get what they want from you.

    Pretty much sums it up.

    Labour adhere to future faking policies.

  22. With election year looming and Ardern’s support falling, she ordered the Arson attack on the John Key supported convention center. The plan is for her to swoon in and save the day, coming up to the election.

    Her propaganda team wasted no time in blaming a nameless faceless worker, with no connection to NZ, as the cause. With every news report repeating this story. This was a carefully planned attack supported by operatives in all the major NZ news agencies.

    The same team were behind the cover up of the murder of the Russian man in Christchurch. As he had no guns the filth knifed him and said it was suicide. The media said he was a “Nazi fanatic” by way of explanation. No follow up and the story of the mans murder was buried.
