  1. So we have a Leader in waiting, former police prosecutor and trained lawyer.
    We would be forgiven for thinking that a prospective leader of our nation would uphold the rights of our citizens. Wouldn’t we?

    Apparently that is not on his agenda. Nor it seems of the Party that is asking us to put them into power.

    Currently we have ,(to my knowledge from the news services), two men in custody whose dastardly deeds were to share a not nice video. (Now this argument is not about the merits of the video and its contents and many not nice video’s have shared over many years), but about the holding in jail of the two men on what can only be described as trumped up charges bought about by retrospective legislation and a State directed compliant police prosecution service.
    We may not like the person who put the video out there and his motivation for doing what he did but jailing people while waiting for a trial in court and using that time to trump up charges at what seems to be the behest of the current Government seems to me to be against all principles of what our justice system should be about.

    We would scream and yell if the same process was used (i.e. retrospective legislation) to force us to pay more tax or some such. We moaned like hell when Clark used retrospective legislation to make lawful her spending after an election campaign ( even if she did ignore us and never get challenged) BUT we, and that includes our Judiciary and our Lawyers don’t seem to care when two white men are jailed for sharing a video and in one case wanting the video altered.

    What about it one of you Lawyers.
    How about one with some principles stand up for the rights of citizens to operate within the Law at the time.
    Put aside the yuck factor and operate with principle.

    Simon will never be a Prime Minister and that will be no loss. He simply finds it more entertaining to talk about slushy machines when he should be taking protecting the rights of people. His background and training presuppose him to inflicting more Laws upon the population
    Apparently that’s how you fix things.

    Well no.

    • Actually, one guy wanting a body count added and cross hairs, is disgusting and he deserves everything he gets, I don’t know about the other.
      Saying that, if scum can get bail whilst waiting for serious assault, drug or rape charges, surely a dick head can get bail too.

      • Your comment disgusts me!

        Far more than the passing on of a video ever could.

        Freedom of thought, expression and action, unless the action harms or threatens to harm others, must be absolute.

        I would not, however, accept you being locked up for the disgraceful action of publishing it.

        Nor will I accept these people being locked up for their harmless actions or the refusal of so-called liberals and self-claimed fighters for freedom of expression (such as DPF on Kiwiblog) to condemn it.

  2. The viral disease, first reported in China in August, has infected swine across the nation, as well as Mongolia, Vietnam and Cambodia. In China, which raises half the world’s hogs, it’s led to the death and destruction of millions of pigs, pushing up pork prices and causing reverberations across global grain, meat and financial markets, as well as the Chinese economy.

    Latest forecasts point to a loss of swine this year equivalent to the European Union’s annual supply.

    We should read this. china has a meat crisis that is huge. 16 million tonnes of pork short.
    what is going to fill the hole?
    Going to last for many years.

    Are you a meat maker?

    • This is the biggest con job ever. If you drive past a pine forest that is being harvested. What you see is the dead branches of these trees right up to the top of the canopy. This is the small part that is photosynthesising and taking in the Co2. Dead branches cannot do this. Why the emphasis is put on trees at the expense of pasture is beyond comprehension. ALL plants with green leaves photosynthesise.

      • I agree completely however Mr Inch felled trees he had no right to fell.

        If he genuinely did not know about the status of the trees ownership when he purchased the farm his lawyer and the vendor (or both) need serious investigation but the simple fact is that the trees had been paid for (no doubt by us poor bloody taxpayers in fact) and he now has to pay the money back.

        I have little sympathy!

        • True, the previous owner bent the knee. I have no idea whether Inch received (and continued to receive) “free” money for the trees. If so, I have no sympathy either.

          If he received nothing and he was unaware of the government imposed contract as claimed, I have some sympathy.

          Still, my original point remains: keep the government as much out of your affairs as possible. Give them an ‘inch’ and they’ll take a mile.

Years later, I wonder how he and Winnie are even anywhere near the puppet strings of power…,.not to mention how many millions of tax payers’ $$$ have been completely wasted on their salaries and travel expenses. MMP and un-elected list MP’s. Hard to believe NZ voted over 60 % in favour of keeping MMP.

  3. The young doctors, or residents, are due to begin their five day strike. How many are left sitting on the waiting list in pain and in distress and now, as they were due to finally make it into hospital for much needed surgery or treatment the young doctors have walked out. Everyone else on the waiting list will have their care pushed back months. Great isn’t it. Where is David Clarke, Minister of Health?

  5. Sadly, yesterday there was yet another tragic road accident on SH1, bringing the road toll for April to 45, the worst in 10 years.

    These statistics are nothing to gloat over, but when she was appointed Assoc Transport Minister, JAG chose to politicise the road toll. She claimed she would introduce a policies aimed at achieving a zero road toll. After deliberately diverting funds from road building projects into cycling projects, talk fests and publicity drives, we are seeing the road toll rising instead of falling.

    The best thing that could happen for the safety of NZers, is that the Red Melons (and there dogma) are driven from government at the next election.

    • Yes but not everyone is as negative about cycling projects as you.
      JAG’s husband is someone who is very positive about them as his consultancy business is coincidentally flourishing under this government “winning” contracts right left and centre.
      Can’t keep a good man down so to speak.

    • Well go find the Nation’s interview on Saturday and have a listen. JAG is exactly right with the program that they are doing, just can’t do it fast enough to stop stupid people killing themselves. Now that doesn’t excuse the not building new roads but there are plenty that need safety work including that road where those people died. Its a fairly fast road in most places and it was wet after a long dry. People make mistakes and its the consequence of that mistake that hurts. We need rods that are friendly to cars. The Kati kato road for example has been much as it was back in the 70’s but with a huge increase in cars and trucks. It was unforgiving back then and is even worse now. Barriers will help short term but in the end it needs replacing with a fir for purpose road. Lots like that.

  6. I refer you to this story on Stuff.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/112278068/corrections-1m-slushy-fund-to-keep-prison-guards-cool-during-summer-heat-wave

    Leaving aside the story details about how Corrections have paid in excess of $5,000 of our money for each of 193 slushy machines I refer you to this statement quoted therein:

    The Opposition has called out the Government over the “irresponsible and wasteful spending” but Corrections Minister Kelvin Davis says he doesn’t care what National leader Simon Bridges has to say and he supported the health and safety-related spend.

    If Mr Davis is not now packing his bags en-route to his local prison for fraudulently taking tax-payer money as a Minister of the Crown I want to know why not?

I would be more impressed if Simple Simon would start to stand up and talk about protecting our rights as citizens./ But he won’t because he has been brainwashed that Laws control people and he believes that’s so. Bad news for the future.

      • 0.70 cents per day per prison officer be fucked!

        I realise you aren’t the sharpest knife in the drawer but even a brain dead dickhead should understand that paying an average of over $5,000. each for equipment that should cost about $500. at most is a waste of fucking money, taxpayer money, and this is what the Opposition is paid to address.

        It doesn’t matter how much per screw is involved except to fuckwits attempting to explain their fuckwittery.

        The smaller stuff is just as important as the big stuff in this instance but I note not a single fucking Nat has put his or her head above the parapet as far as the current attack on freedom of speech and thought in NZ is concerned.

  7. So let me get this straight.

    This loser in Christchurch, the NAZI guy, is facing a couple of years in prison for sharing that video???

    What the hell?

    Do you know how hard it is to get 2 years+ in jail? I reckon 10 burglaries wouldn’t get you that much time. Even if you wrote your name in your own shit on peoples walls and smashed the places up.

    Also, when he shared it, it wasn’t illegal!

    Did anyone here think an hour after that shooting, “oh I bet they make that video illegal and you’ll go to jail if you watch it or share it”… knowing that we have all seen people jumping to their death on 9/11. The beheading videos on tv1 news etc etc

    The last time Labour was in power, it took three terms for them to really have a crack at free speech. That godawful electoral finance act.

    It also reinforces what I have thought for a long time now. Thank god Labour weren’t at the helm when the earthquakes hit Christchurch. I would still be paying my “rich prick levy” for the rebuild. A rebuild which may not have even started yet.

    • You really need to read the Gulag Archipelago. Article 58 was applied liberally as thought crime. The penalties and treatment of zeks were far in excess of normal criminals. The parallels are quite striking.

      Also interesting that by default all zeks were labelled fascists which is exactly the language the Left uses against their opponents (whether they’re fascist or not).

    • Staggering Dime but lets not forget it was the Tuesday AFTER the attack before the SLG decided the accused individual was classed as “he who shall not be named”. After dong their best to conceal how she signed off last year to making online gun purchases “easier”. All topped off with some knee jerk rushed gun control legislation that has the usually expected flaws from it’s very release. No surprise that the thick blue line is struggling to keep up with such a rapid needed involvement. Then zooming to even more prominence with a woeful display of their own stupidity to even adhere to Station house security rules.
      IMHO the support of National with rapid gun law changes was a well considered move to give the COL as much rope as they need to continue to look stupid while acting so emotively. They have enough time to prepare to revisit this after 2020 though it might be well down the priority list for the post COL clean up.

  8. A local mechanic who was at the Atiamuri accident said it was not a people mover with 8 people crammed into a vehicle that was not built for that number. Therefore they were not all wearing seatbelts. The tyres were also not up to standard. It is a terrible thing that has happened to that family but until drivers realise by taking chances with vehicle safety they are putting family, friends and other road users in danger. Imagine being the oncoming innocent driver with that dodgy vehicle sliding across into your side of the road and there is nowhere for you to go.

My seatbelt saved my life. I’d have gone straight through the wind screen otherwise. I ended up with 12 stitches and a nasty concussion. FFS wear seatbelts people. Airbags? They exploded like they should, but i just bled all over them. My body never touched the airbags as the seatbelt did its job perfectly.

    • I’ve been surprised that the disingenuous comment by Mr. Plod hasn’t been rolled out yet: “Speed was a factor”. You know, because speed is always a factor…as in at least one vehicle has to be in motion for a collision to happen.

      Maybe it’s an overused expression or just maybe the public have wised up to such a worthless statement.

      • If a driver attempst to drive an overloaded vehicle with bad tyres around a slippery bend at speed the physics will be against you and your vehicle surviving the manoeuvre. I don’t know why the police spokeswoman could not just say that this morning instead of blaming the road.

        • In one news report there was a list of all the people who died. I suspect the spokeswoman feared being labelled a racist…so the easy route was to blame the road.

          And we’ve seen how fearful the police are at such labels in the UK; where child rape gangs were able to operate for decades without police interference.

  10. Has anyone asked whether Tarrant’s attack would have happened under a National Government or were Labour liberalizing things too much for his taste?

    Will the Royal Commission of inquiry look at what policies or changes in the narrative were the ‘now’ trigger? Why on that particular day, not any other Friday?

    0

    0

    • That would be interesting. I know it is now public knowledge that Ardern was in charge of making it easier to purchase arms. Did Tarrant make use of Ardern’s relaxation? I suspect even it was true, the media would spin it to keep Ardern blameless whilst at the same time deploying guilt by association to anyone not a Leftist.

      • I am aware of the online thing, but was there more? Sri Lanka attacks were on Easter, I believe that the target shifted in the preceding three months? The plans were in train before that, I only read part of the manifesto, thinking that I could come back and peruse it later, so I am not sure if the answer was further into it than I got, it was all pretty surreal and I do not think that everyone would have been totally aware that it was live and real, there are hoaxes that appear on the net after all.

        Easy to ascribe motives to people that suit the narrative. I find it quite interesting that Philip Arps has pleaded guilty, he has denied himself a platform. Why would he do that?

        0

        0

        • Perhaps the terrorists involved with the Sri Lanka attacks on Christians (sorry “Easter Worshippers according to Hillary Clinton) got more motivated by Tarrant? Perhaps some of the suicide bombers were waivering but became staunch in the aftermath. I’m guessing and maybe you were asking a rhetorical question.

          As for Philip Arps, again a guess, but perhaps his business took a dive when he did that, and prison will give him free food and accommodation?

    This has been in train for a while, and so well ensconced in academia.

  12. Madness at Newstalk ZB

    Misandryist, anti-white, left winger Heather du Plessiis-Allan to replace sensible Larry Williams on the (used to be lucrative) Drive show from 13 May.

    http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/BU1904/S00685/heather-du-plessis-allan-to-head-newstalk-zb-drive.htm

    Oh well, how sad, never mind – I won’t be tuning into ZB at 4pm every day the way I have for the past God knows how many years. I imagine there will be a similar level of turn-off from other middle of the road listeners and a commensurate drop in advertising revenue. As the saying goes “Go woke, go broke”.

    It is a bizarre illustration of how utterly out of touch the mainstream media is though, Larry has been a polite, reasonable middle of the road commentator for 27 years and cemented ZB’s evening audience share for decades and now they want to go all diversity and put in a Jacinda cheer-leader.

    Once the left find a way to score a hit on Mike Hoskings then there’ll be no sane voices left and ZB will sink into Red Radio-isation. No Leighton, no Larry – Mike is the last of the Three Musketeers of reason.

  15. Why Simon should never be our PM.

    National leader Simon Bridges’ claim the Government has “cancelled” planned improvements to the country’s roads is being called “absurd and irresponsible”.

    His statement is complete nonsense if fact. Public knowledge and JAH was interviewed about this on Saturday.
    Simon is simple. He has no idea what or how things happen. just another useless pen pusher in fact.

    If he is this bad now imagine how bad he would be as a PM. Worse than Jacinda.
