  1. Many men have had this experience: You’ve been drinking with friends, and have lost track of time. You arrive home at 3:30am. As you approach the house you cut the engine, turn off the headlights, and coast into your driveway. You very quietly close the car door. The same with the door to your house. You take off your shoes and tiptoe up the stairs and enter the bedroom. Just as you are about to get in bed, your wife rolls over and yells, “where the hell have you been till 4 in the morning?”
    Here’s a better approach: When you get close to home, gun the engine, roar into the driveway and squeal to a stop. Slam the car door. Slam the door to your house and stomp up the stairs singing “I’m In the Mood For Love”. I guarantee she’ll pretend to be asleep

  2. Michael Woodhouse, National, is calling for an inquiry by the House Select Committee into Pharmac and their lack of funding for new life extending cancer drugs. It is once again under a Labour led government that official advice for NZ cancer patients is to move to Australia to gain access to these cancer drugs. David Clarke, Minister of Health says he does not support an inquiry.

    “Angela Pantano, the director of access and public safety for Roche New Zealand, said one of the drugs being considered, Kadcyla, was already government-funded in 38 countries, including those with comparable health systems to New Zealand.

    ​”Other countries are willing to pay for innovation. We don’t understand why the life of a person in Australia, the UK, Ireland or Canada for example is considered more valuable than the life of a Kiwi.”

  3. Simon Bridges was saying yesterday that he is losing faith in the Department of Statistics figures. He reckons if they can’t get the basics of their statistics right – the census, how will they succeed in getting the figures for the well-being budget right on how individuals feel? How do they measure ones “spirtual wellbeing?”

    • It shouldn’t be the only reason, a long time ago in a land far far away I read a book on intent, given to me to read by a man friend. boy did that book save his arse many times. Any how, I believe that Jacinda’s intent hasn’t been all bad but the actuality, is disastrous to NZ Inc

  4. The CoL is to slash drivers licence costs for young NZ beneficiaries. A scheme to cut the cost of birth certificates for ID, professional driving lessons and test fees. It is aimed at unemployed youth, young mothers and those in care, approx 2,500 people and aimed at helping with employment opportunities for these groups.

    I guess it is something practical instead of just another handout.

    • It’s a handout, but i guess they could blow our tax dollars (and do!) on worse schemes. If it actually helps some people get into employment, then fine but i’m still skeptical. This Govt like to “re-calibrate” bad results.

      • Agreed, but isolated places that are low socio economic/retirement/tourism are better off having schemes go to them, has to be cheaper than busing them in to a larger centre. That has been tried before and the costs are even more prohibitive so people drive illegally. Do you support driver’s licensing in schools?

  5. How bad is this? Latest out of Aussie.

    “Talk about the snowflake generation! A Sydney school has banned kids from handing out party invitations in the playground, in case students who miss out get upset! ”

    FFS, give me strength.

  6. On Anzac Day we remember the fallen, and honour them with one minute’s silence. Almost 11,000 Aussies and Kiwis died at Gallipoli, and are remembered.

    On Armistice Day 1919 we had two minute’s silence to commemorate the end of the war. Almost 80,000 Aussies and Kiwis died in that conflict. Today we rarely stop to remember them, and occasionally allow one minute’s silence.

    When Sir Winston Churchill passed away, one minute’s silence was afforded arguably the world’s greatest ever statesman.

    Why then did we have two minute’s silence to commemorate those who fell in Christchurch. Was their sacrifice to country worth twice that of those who selflessly put their lives on the line to defend the country we enjoy today?

    Our returned servicemen should be incensed that the supreme sacrifice given by their friends and colleagues is now devalued, and I for one would support them wholeheartedly.

    • I had two great uncles die at Gallipoli they were in the Wellington Battalion, enough said, currently there are 30 something letters that they wrote back to the family being digitized as we speak, Lest WE Forget.

    • Do you think DPF was leaned on by the Nats to moderate his blog to avoid any bad vibes going to them because of nationals association with him?
      He obviously is a national party pollster who gets money from them. Reading between the lines, someone has obviously got to him.

      • DPF has always been his own man & he’s not beyond giving National a rark up on occasions. That said he’s an absolute & committed liberal who was genuinely shocked by the Christchurch massacre.

        Make no mistake. The Christchurch massacre gifted the totalitarians of the Left an opportunity to shut down everything critical of their positions. Kiwiblog is top of their list.

        Orwell’s 1984 depicted freedom compared with what’s coming.
