  1. Oh Chlöe no! All the boomers who aren’t OK with OK boomer

    “It symbolised your ageism and inability to formulate an argument,” said one commenter on Swarbrick’s piece in the Guardian. “The phrase is not innocuous,” added another. “It plays to the generational divide that’s been promulgated more than ever in the recent times… Her article is a clear demonstration that politicians of all ages may be adept in using weasel words.”

    • “Ok, Coconut” or “Ok, honkey” would be woke appropriate equivalents. And you can bet Chloe would cringe in horror if somebody said that. Accusations of racism would fly. Of course, it is different when the left do it.

      But, sticks and stones. Who really gives a shit what the 25 year old airhead has to say? May as well pay attention to Greta if you do.

  2. I heard on magic radio this morning that some government staff members were also trying to access alt right sites.
    They even mentioned the name
    Something like stormfront.org

      • A few years ago there was a report that revealed that the Parliamentary computer system had logged something like 14000 attempts to access porn sites.

        Someone anonymous suggested that Shane had forgotten his password again.

    • An obvious beat up.

      “Treasury confirmed the person who attempted the search……”. (The person singular?)

      Seems most of the searches for non-work sites were for dating and stuff.
      Note also the report mentions alt-right but the article slips casually to White Supremacist.
      Knowing that KB is described as alt-right by some gives a quite different perspective.

  3. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern throws doubt on Vernon Tava’s Sustainable NZ
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/11/prime-minister-jacinda-ardern-throws-doubt-on-vernon-tava-s-sustainable-nz.html

    “Tava has fashioned the party as focusing on the environment and “making money while we’re doing it”, and he’s willing to work with either Labour or National.

    But Labour leader Ardern questioned the need for Tava’s party in the current political space, asking reporters at her post-Cabinet press conference: “What is the political issue that they are trying to solve?”

    • Ardern!
      They might not be trying to solve a political issue.
      They might just have some polices and principals and if people like them they might vote for them.

    • If SLG has to ask that question she just confirms how politically inept she really is. By getting rid of the greens to below 5% then she has no chance of being a SLG PPM. With any luck the greens and Tava will not get 5%.

    • Remember her bullshit reason for getting into politics…… “eliminate child poverdee”…….

      How’s she doing I wonder. Perhaps if she stopped jetting about the world posing for murals she may have been able to think of a solution…. but then again, maybe not.

    • “What is the political issue that they are trying to solve?”

      Unbelievable question from a PM. How much more stupid can she present herself.

      The biggest difference between her and Key (or English) –and they are as far apart as you can get –is the latter could think on their feet. Not only think on their feet but think intelligently.

    • Is Peters behaviour purely down to being a narcissistic arsehole or is there confusion and an inability to differentiate reality. Is it time to question Peters ability to hold his position in our parliament? I guess that is only possible if the PTPM took action and that isn’t going to happen. Roll on election 2020!!

  5. I was disappointed with Peter Williams yesterday on Magic Talk
    He did not seem concerned about the rising number of mosques in NZ.
    And the way muslims start to throw their weight around.
    In Australia they are saying that the Australia National Anthem is anti muslim
    In the UK, muslims are complaining about dogs on the streets as muslims don’t like dogs.
    Who the hell do they think they are,’

      • We keep being told that there are 50,000 muslims in NZ.
        But that was years ago. so many more now?
        Just like we keep getting told that there are 600,000 kiwi traitors living in Australia.
        That too was many years ago. So there would be many more by now!
        If Australia had not closed those Citizenship rules, there’d be a lot more.
        NZ would have a lot less kiwis.

  7. Cyclist on Auckland train refuses to give priority seating to mum with pram
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12283150

    “An ‘aggressive’ cyclist on an Auckland train has caused an uproar after he laid down on four priority seats, preventing a mum and baby from having a seat.

    But when the train manager approached the cyclist to move, he became aggressive, refusing to move and hurled abuse at the manager.

    The cyclist repeated what he said, saying ‘f**k off’ and went back to sleep. The manager then walked off and did absolutely nothing.”

      Of course the situation did not escalate. The woman continued to stand and the foul-mouthed cyclist continued to sleep.
      How is that a good outcome?

  8. This country needs a real kick in the pants to get going.
    repeal and redo the RMA
    Send the Commerce Commission in to Bunnings and Mitre Ten to check profit margins.
    Who is making the money
    Send the commerce commission in to Countdown and Pack and save to check the margins on groceries, veges and milk.
    Who is making the money.
    One building code
    Sack Branz and use US and UK and German building material standard products.
    Watch Michael Mora’s doco on house prices
    Ask builders exactly why our building costs per sq metre are far higher than Australia when oru wages are cheaper.
    Demand an exact answer as to why our cheese and butter and meat is cheaper overseas than it is here.
    Give every one a month to reply with clear facts
    And make them all public so that we can see who is causing NZ to be a high costs country!
    Rant over.

      • I’m trying to find it. It was on TV3 I think. It was half an hour and he interviewed lots of builders, and the guy from Fletchers (who lied thru his teeth) He also went to Mitre 10 and Bunnings and discussed their builders perks schemes.
        he also visited a few building material importers who had taken years to get a product approved that has been used in Germany for years.

  9. David Seymour condemns Massey University’s new free speech policy
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/11/david-seymour-condemns-massey-university-s-new-free-speech-policy.html

    “Massey University’s new free speech policy shows it is more concerned with protecting the feelings of a small number of students and creating safe spaces for them than it is with defending a central pillar of Western civilisation,” Seymour said in a press release on Tuesday.

    “Massey has been rightly condemned for its recent approach to freedom of expression. These new documents provide no reason to believe that approach will change.”

  10. Winston Peters lashes out at social media’s freedom to ‘ruin people’s reputations’

    “Winston Peters is lashing out at social media over the freedom it provides for people to express their views often without consequence and “ruin people’s reputations”.

    The Deputy Prime Minister said “sooner or later” social media companies will be “forced to have and follow the same standards as the mainstream media”.

    Peters hypocrisy! He has had the media hanging off his every word for the past 40 years and hasn’t held back with his opinions on others. Now he is complaining because there is social media and people are being meanies. LOL!

    Voyager 2 Finds A Mysterious Extra Layer Outside Our Solar System

    But Voyager 2 exited the solar system with all its instruments intact and had a complete set of data. Scientists shared the findings for the first time via five papers published in the journal, Nature Astronomy. And turns out, there are mysterious extra layers between the solar system’s bubble and interstellar space.

  14. Earlier this year I wrote two articles, archived here and here, about the likely impact and consequences of policies that encourage conversion of pastoral land to forestry. I was particularly concerned about the actions and power of foreign investors, and the associated transformation of better-quality land.

    My concern was not because of any fundamental objection to foreign investment to deal with shortages of investment capital in our economy. My concern was because of the sheer scale and power of overseas investors under current policies to change irrevocably the New Zealand landscape.

    Conversion of farms to forestry is now ramping up

    Too true Keith about NZ or Australian grass feed meat being a luxury item up here in the Pearl River Delta…not so much for Radiata pine though!

    The surprising thing to me about these issues you raise is how there is been a total lack of coverage of it in the media I read back in NZ..I would expect this in the mostly now tabloid NZ Herald but also nothing in the best political blog (Kiwiblog) even after sending David Farrar your articles on it.

    Maybe the mostly urban elite have drunken the ”kool aid” that farming is a ”sunset industry” again?

    • I wish more of these city dwelling woke folk got off their arses & pedalled their bamboo bicycles into rural NZ to have a look at what happens to forestry blocks every thirty odd years.

      I refer of course to harvesting when forestry roads have to be created on often unstable terrain. After the loggers move on the land, or at least what of it hasn’t run off into the rivers, looks like the back of the moon!

      A bit of phosphate & a few pellets of sheepshit is absolutely nothing by comparison.

      • I thought I’d seen a few forestry disasters until I turned up behind Tolaga Bay in 2014. I’d never seen a scene like it in 40+ years … you would have thought it was a scene from a nuclear disaster movie. (I took lots of photos)
        I wasn’t too surprised a couple of years later when a storm hit..

        • Most of them are pretty bad from an ecological PoV Maggy. Roading & access plays a big part but Pinus radiata acts as a defoliant in its own right ensuring that there’s nothing left to hold the land in place after the trees are dropped.

          The steeper the country the worse the effects but even blocks on relatively flat land erode quickly. We’re in the Far North presently & it’s worse here than home because of the porous clay.

    While Sweden’s overall crime rate and homicide rate remains low from an international and historical perspective, there has been an increase in recent years in the proportion of murders linked to criminal gangs. And the number of explosions has increased, accounting for 162 of a total of 190 incidents of ‘destruction causing public endangerment’ last year.
