    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/entertainment/2019/11/writer-and-broadcaster-clive-james-dies.html

    “Clive James, the acclaimed Australian writer and broadcaster, has died. He was 80 years old.

    James passed away on November 24 at his home in Cambridge, his family said.

    A private funeral attended by close friends and family was held on Wednesday. He had been sick with leukaemia for some time.

    “Clive died almost 10 years after his first terminal diagnosis, and one month after he laid down his pen for the last time,” the family said.”

  2. 50 NZ Bus drivers in Auckland will walk off the job at 8.15am this morning until 2.45 this afternoon.
    Oh, and Tip Top bakery workers are on strike so there is a shortage of bread on the supermarket shelves.

    Remember Cindy stating “No strikes under my watch” 🤥

  4. Pair sentenced to prison after New Zealand’s largest-ever meth bust
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/08/pair-sentenced-to-prison-after-new-zealand-s-largest-ever-meth-bust.html

    Two people convicted for being involved in the import of 501kg of methamphetamine have been sentenced to prison.

    Stevie Cullen and Selaima Fakaosilea were found guilty earlier this year on charges of importing methamphetamine and participating in an organised criminal group.

    The charges related to the import of 501kgs of meth at Ninety Mile Beach in June 2016.

    The haul is New Zealand’s largest ever meth bust and others involved in the importation have previously been convicted.

    • Do you yearn for the time when you could beat your wife & thrash your children with impunity
      You dont have to be a god botherer to want this return to the good ol days you could simply identify as tangata fenua nothing shows more love than to give your cherished ones a bit of the bash and according to our media and and certain academics if you travelled back in time all you would find would be peaceful loving guardians that lived in harmony with each other the animals & land not the violent stoneage cannibal lies that those nasty honkeys want you to believe
      of course you could also identify as a muslim or indian as well if treating females like livestock is your thing

  6. Wellington youth mental health facility lost track of 35 people in its care
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/11/wellington-youth-mental-health-facility-lost-track-of-35-people-in-its-care.html

    “Over a number of years, there have been reports that a number of our acute services are actually contributing to harm,” said Ardern.

    Earlier this year Newshub spoke to a teenager who lives with bipolar – she spoke of seeing others self-harming while at Wellington’s Adolescent Inpatient Service

    “Every day you would walk in there would be blood in the sink,” she told NewsHub at the time.”

  8. Phone call last evening while preparing our evening meal. Researcher for the local authority conducting a survey; would I be willing to participate?

    Does the sun rise in the East?

    We start and my age is recorded at more than 65, (no options past that point) we pay rates, we are in an urban part of the authorities area, we have lived here more than 60 years, I select, from the options offered that I am New Zealand European – and then the researcher notes they have enough respondents from my demographic and that was that. Good evening.

    Is this a reasonably filtered survey using well established and accepted methods or are they filtering out the views of those who actually pay rates, cook meals at home and may represent an older now not considered trendy demographic.

    I am sceptical the results of the survey will have value over the cost. As a longterm ratepayer I am left feeling it is dubious at best and the results will not reflect reality for a demographic given the deselection of the views of part of that demographic. Could it be the local authority is not interested in the views of that demographic?

    The next rate quarterly rate demand and its inherent legal threat and fees for late payment will still come.

      Eg is Tauranga they told me that most people want to cycle to work. (yes up hills, in the cold and rain and risk getting killed and in your 50’s or 60’s)
      They told me that 83% of people want more maori street and park names.

    • Annoyed to hear this morning from Phil Goff that the increased price (tax) for landfill charges will be included in a rates increase. So those of us who do not produce much waste will be subsidising those who do? Why can’t the charge be on the bags we buy at the supermarket for the gate so it is user pays? Why do the ratepayers always end up covering the costs???

      12

      • Because the ratepayer is large group of people of which some are a large source of money to be tapped untill they rise up and then hang the mayor from a lampost!
        By the way all the state houses, who pays for their rubbish? Is that a freebie?

      • I am not convinced Government at any level should have anything to do with waste disposal. Local government like the idea according to Dave Cull, which means it is a further revenue opportunity but without any useful result.

        Remove government, and practically useless levies, from the waste handling matter. Let private companies handle it as a business proposition. Local Authorities are not competent or equipped to handle waste disposal as an ongoing business process.

        The council can deal with prosecuting or infringing the fly tippers from the fixed upwards annual charge but I expect every detected fly tipper to be charged full cost plus a surcharge for being an irresponsible drongo. Revenue should cover costs and not be a charge on the general ratepayer. I should not have to pay for some other bods garbage disposal. Waste disposal It is not an acceptable addition to the general annual charge. Costs should be imposed on those responsible.

        Which brings up corporate responsibility. I am over having to dispose of fast food wrapping and assorted used containers left by suckers who purchase this overpriced crap. Minister Sage can focus on that but the notion of imposing levy increases that impact on my cost of living is an unwanted and unacceptable notion on her part. The proposal is rejected.

  9. Winston, Cindy, and Simon were waiting in the green room before a banquet with the movers and shakers of Wellington.
    Suddenly a heavenly chorus of angels sang, and God appeared to the trio.
    In a booming voice God said, “Each of you may ask one question, and I will answer it.”
    Simon asked, “Will there ever be another National Prime Minister?”
    God replied, “Yes. But not during your lifetime.”
    Cindy asked, “Will anyone ever think I was a good Prime Minister?”
    God said, “Yes. But not during your lifetime.”
    Winston asked, “Will I ever be Prime Minister?”
    God answered, “Yes. But not during MY lifetime.”

  10. Major UK supermarket to end sales of NZ lamb
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2019/11/major-uk-supermarket-to-end-sales-of-nz-lamb.html

    “Major UK supermarket chain Waitrose will stop selling New Zealand lamb.

    Waitrose has previously sourced some of its lamb from New Zealand during the winter months.

    However from the summer of 2021, it will source all of its own-label fresh and frozen lamb from British lamb producers 365 days of the year.”

    Waitrose is an upmarket supermarket chain. There are lots of alternate supermarkets in Britain.

  11. The Democrats think they are getting somewhere with impeachment. Trump is killing them on all fronts.
    Stats from a tweet from Brad Pascale ( Trump’s campaign manager) for the rally in Florida

    “Data from Broward Florida rally:

    ✅ 31,177 voters identified

    ✅ 19% voted once or less in last 4 elections (8% in zero)

    ✅ 24% Democrat

    ✅ 27% Hispanic

    Incredible data from a county that is predominantly blue. Put Florida in the win column for 2020! “

          • I thought you may have just missed that bit. (it is the sort of thing I would do)

            Pascale is a very clever guy when it comes to collecting data etc. I think in the case of the rallies those that get in have to give a contact detail and he does the rest. He has done it with other rallies as well (probably all of them but the results are not always given)
            During the 2016 election he and Kushner started from scratch, only about 5-6 months from the election day, with their social media , data collecting etc. exercises and after the election Eric Schmitt, the former Chairman of Google who was co-ordinating the same role for the Democrats with all of the Google resources and over a much longer time period, admitted that they had been “out played” by the beginners.

  12. Re the Indian Doctor and Amber Rose
    I am not sticking up for him.
    But the prosecution case seemed to rely on one unreliable witness (who may be charged later)
    I think there will be an appeal!

    Surely they could have come up with some actual evidence – eg DNA,

    This is why I think the French system is the best.
    They try to find out who did it – not just try one person.

    And as for (The doctor knew where to stab her)
    I think anyone knows that if you want to kill someone you don’t stab them in the toe.

  15. Phil Goff hits out at landlords living in ‘yesterday’s world’
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/11/phil-goff-hits-out-at-landlords-living-in-yesterday-s-world.html

    “The proposed rate of $60 a tonne would cost households about 33c a week, according to the Ministry for the Environment – about the price of a single movie ticket per year.

    But AM Show host Duncan Garner and sportsreader Mark Richardson took issue with the plan to add it as a targeted rate, rather than add it to the cost of a bin or bag. Garner suggested it would “break the bank” of some homeowners, and Richardson – a property investor – balked at having to pay for his tenants’ rubbish collection, suggesting he’d have to put rents up by $5 a week to compensate.

    Goff said it wasn’t possible at this stage to simply charge it per bag, because different parts of the city have different methods of paying for rubbish collection.

    “You’ll charge whatever rent you can probably get from the market. 33c a week, come on guys. We’re talking about our environment… You’re surely not telling me we shouldn’t incentivise people to recycle instead of burying their waste? That’s yesterday’s world.”

  16. I’m taking a day off work today.
    Not because I want to.
    I was kept awake most of the night by loud music and drunken, tone deaf, singing indigenous woman.
    Their male cling on’s congregated in and around the shared driveway, shoulder shrug laughing, swearing and calling out to their mates inside.
    Just after 3 am was the last time I looked at the clock.
    I usually start work at 6 am.
    At 7 am the builders turned up at the new council housing development adjacent to the back fence.
    They will finish banging, sawing, shouting, throwing timber about and listening to blaring radio ‘s at about 4:30 pm.
    The wailing wahines will start up again at 5:30 pm.

    The neighbours that reside on the other side of the house, are 5 metres from my kitchen window and are a white trash mother and daughter combo.
    The daughter has a mouth like a sewer and whinges about not getting enough hand outs.
    These two shining examples of NZ citizenry are obese.
    Last week when it began to rain the daughter waddled to the clothesline to retrieve the washing while Mumsie waited at the back door to have the clothes passed to her because she is too enormous to fit through the the door.
    None of my temporary neighbours partake in the ravages of gainful employment.

    Jealous yet?

        I just arrived home/here after having coffee with my brother.
        As I was closing the door to the car, through the fence I heard one of the neighbours drunk guests greet me with a phrase I have never heard before. “He’s an Aussie c__t !!
        I ignored it, because I am neither.
        He then spouted something else I haven’t heard before, ” I’ll cut your head off c__t!!” and then turned to his missus and said “I love you my darling”. Children are present absorbing this social skill lesson.

        Another fitful sleep tonight and I should be ready for a hard days work tomorrow.

  18. Binge-drinking has DOUBLED among American women without children in just 12 years, study reveals

    Between 2006 and 2010, excessive alcohol use led to 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost among US residents.

    Drinking is increasing among all US adults, particularly among women, regardless of parenting status, said the researchers.

    Researchers said the analysis found no safe level of alcoholic consumption, suggesting that going teetotal was the only way to avoid associated health risks.

  21. Kea is going to spoof all over his perch tonight. The latest killing by a feral woman has resulted in a ridiculously light sentence. From https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/117726403/northland-woman-who-stabbed-partner-to-death-sentenced-to-three-years-jail

    …..”he (the judge) recognised Beattie’s difficult life circumstances, including being raised in poverty with significant emotional and sexual abuse, along with being manipulated by a past partner”……

    In the Northern Advocate their report indicated that prior to the stabbing she was removed from the property by her family but broke free & ran back to continue the argument. His family are spitting tacks over the sentence.

    If you’re a woman of the special people who claims a troubled past you can actually kill someone in cold blood knowing that you’ll be free in a couple of years. Perhaps the parrot is right.

          The people that knew him could only speak out once the guilty verdict was out. Keep up with the developments and the facts, son. The guy was a compulsive liar in his dealings with people by all accounts. He was related to an All Black, owned his own company, etc, etc. Had psychological issues. No one is saying ‘I can’t believe it’ ‘ Not old so & so’ . They are actually saying “Bound to have happened’.
          From the gist of it, not a person to be expected to be honest in the case of a dead body in his bed.

                It was the judge, presumably in a summing up or sentencing, which made out the killer to be the victim (which, to be clear since you easily go off track, I do NOT agree with – rather, people should leave abusers).
                The police and the prosecution are not the ones who tend to be pushing for softer sentences. The police will try to make a case for a charge that will stick, and then they essential hand it over.
                Try to understand the parts each play, and who is actually being quoted.
                And just because someone doesn’t call cops ‘Pigs’ doesn’t mean they are cop lovers.
                I prefer The Filth, since ‘Pigs’ comes from the Black Panthers, and traces back as an insult within the followers of Islam.

    And even then the police will only act if forced to by independent media reports. But even then they will let the Party conduct its own investigation first, school witnesses and construct a cover story, in tandem with media plants.

    So go for it. Rape away.

      Place a bunch of bananas up there!
      A BIT OF BACKGROUND.
      I was a scaffolder for a long and we all got shit about climbing coconut trees and all the rest and we have a lot of samoan boys working in the trade so it’s just taking the piss!

  23. So putting your handsd down someone’s pants is ok:

    Judge Collins said the gravity of the offending is low, which may shock people because of the nature of the allegations. “I’m not convinced it was for a sexual gratification or any perverted motive,” he said.

    Judge Collins couldn’t find any “perverted motive”. He seems to have had a sheltered life – if he meets Stephieboy then he’ll discover a whole lot of perverted motives that he never knew existed!

            At risk of receiving your ire of being a “cop lover”. I offer this information.
            The Police investigate the crime and charge if they believe they have sufficient evidence. If the charge is denied the matter goes to a deposition hearing which at that stage is still in the hands of the Police. If prima facie is established, it is then committed to trial and at that point on is in the hands of the Crown…(a government contracted law firm that holds a crown warrant) they are the ones that file the indictment(s) based on the evidence given at the deposition hearing. The Police have no say on the Crown indictment(s) and the indictment could well relate to a different crime to the one they initially laid.
            Any plea dealings or how the prosecution is run at trial has nothing to do with the Police and any cop who stuck his nose in would be told to butt out by the Crown Prosecutor. About the only role the Police have at trial is to give sworn evidence and make sure the witnesses front up and are ready to go.

            Maggie…I don’t think you really needed to know what school the judge went to but you will find the answer here…https://www.nzherald.co.nz/hawkes-bay-today/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503462&objectid=11081952

            • Fair enough. You are not a boot licker, just informed.

              But the police were loathe to act at all and even allowed Labour to do an internal investigation first. Including approaching potential witnesses.

              Can you imagine the police doing that with the Mongrel Mob or a right wing anti immigration party?

              No matter how you cut it this reeks of corruption and double standards.

              • Kea…
                This is a free speech site and the other night when I said that I enjoyed reading your posts, however thought that you could put more thought into some of your topics… was wrong and I apologise for it.
                You may appreciate this rave…
                A law firm holding a crown warrant is still a law firm whose business is about making money for its partners. Could that be a motive over seeking justice for a wrongly charged person? Example..
                A unit of feminist orientated Police officers charge someone with historical sex crimes based on ‘recovered memory’ with no corroborating evidence.
                As explained earlier, the matter goes to a deposition hearing and is committed to trial on the complainant’s written testimony, prepared by the Police. In sex matters, the complainant does not give oral evidence and prima facie is established on that written statement.
                The govt contractor then gets it and realises the case has no chance of a conviction. Trial preparation and taking it to trial is going to be a nice little earner for the firm and the new boy in the office needs to cut his teeth on an easy bit of trial work..
                Should the firm do the right thing and go for a stay in proceedings?

            • It is a lot more complicated than that.

              In the Arthur Allen Thomas prosecution the cops were full on to the point of planting evidence and had a bus outside the courtroom basically analysing and in effect co-prosecuting. Covered in the David Yallop book and movie from the book. That was the grounds for his release and compensation.

              In the Teina Pora case the cops would not back down despite the fact anyone with an IQ north of 92 could see they were pursuing an intellectually damaged fella. Sure he was a bad bugger but as Kea says it must be evidence based not emotion based. They were bullies.
              If you look at the end of ‘A Few Good Men’ the telling line
              Downey: What did we do wrong? We did nothing wrong!
              Dawson: Yeah we did. We were supposed to fight for people who couldn’t fight for themselves. We were supposed to fight for Willy.

              In the case of Peter Ellis the cops were lying bully boys and thugs.
              They were supposed to protect the likes of Ellis.
              When they get a hard on they dont back down. Never. No matter how wrong they are.
              They go full retard.
              They would even turn on their own if they were ‘different’. A lot of that in the 1990s as the outfit changed noticeably and the spawn of criminals, John Banks, was Minister of Police.
              And so it goes on.

              The cops lied through their teeth over the first Mark Lundy prosecution. They went evidence shopping all the way to Texas. The drive they described was impossible then added in psychics and crossing dressing. It was complete shit. They should have been done for perjury.

              Anyhow. The cop is not your friend and will not help you if you are a decent citizen – why, because such a target will likely not give them grief. The crims give them grief .
              So they go after soft targets.
              If you are trespassing, protesting on land, occupying commercial ships going lawfully about their business, blocking roads and entrances to businesses the NZ Cops give them a free pass.
              Prove me wrong !

              • I would agree with all of this, aside from I think Mark Lundy probably stitched himself up with his Z grade weeping at the funeral. Something stinks there.
                And Scott Watson – don’t trust the police on that entirely, and the guy was a prick, but the mystery boat never turned up in any photographs.

                No, the police are not our friends as such. They are a necessity.
                I hope they never put me under the lens like they do to other poor buggers – just finished reading Lynley Hood’s excellent and shocking book on Ellis.
                I also really enjoyed and appreciated Yallop’s on Arthur Allen Thomas.
                I will certainly call them when someone is smashing up the neighborhood (and I have) and appreciate the squadies who turn up for violent crimes.

                They are essentially a double edged sword.
                Being a firearms owner, and a lot of money invested in weapons (several tens of thousands) I am very wary of the POLITICAL aspect of policing.
                They should stick to their knitting. Investigating and responding to actual crimes and criminals.

    • I wonder what school Judge Collins went to.

      I must admit I had to refer one boy I taught to the school counsellor when he kept shoving a ruler down the backside of other boy’s pants.
      (he was a very large 13yr PI boy – and the “victims” were considerably smaller in size).

      • The thing that gets me is the double standard Wiggles.

        Imagine identical facts but the offender was a member of a white nationalist party.

        It would be hysterically reported all around the world with Ardern on the TV acting out a fit of grief and outrage.

  24. Quiz .Which is the odd one out:

    Question 1. If you recruit 1000 police officers then 1000 police officers resign how many more police do you have?

    Question 2. If you promise to build 100,000 homes under the affordable housing scheme then you build 300 what effect have you had on house availability?

    Question 3. If you pledge to reduce immigration by 20000 to 30000 but keep things as they were how many fewer immigrants do we have?

    Question. 4 A common name for the Japanese Mitsubishi A6M3 model 22 WWII fighter plane?

    Although the answer is zero to all four questions the odd one out is the plane because the Japs actually made 10,939 of those .

    • So the well connected Labour sex offender gets off. The interesting thing is the judges comments:

      1. Alcohol is a mitigating factor after all.

      2. If you are privileged it makes it less serious to break the law.

      3. Judge acknowledged the impact on the victims, but proceeded to ignore the impact to care for the offender instead.

      In fairness, the tepid half hearted prosecution by the police was probably a factor.

      Yeah I know…. I’m crazy/drunk/trolling. No corruption or double standards in our Justice system. 🤪

      • No Kea. You’re not crazy/drunk/trolling. Rather you are putting into words what most of us feel.

        Actually, I’m not too concerned about the lack of a penalty which was never going to be much whatever the outcome. What I will get incredibly bitter & twisted about is if the prick manages to hold onto name suppression.

        That will be political corruption. Nothing more & nothing less.

        • I agree 100% with what you guy’s find disturbing, and why.
          I think the wood shaving should be outed and convicted.
          The MSM hush squad, judges and the constabulary are owned by the same runt.
          Unfortunately, it looks like all of our pollies believe the people they represent should learn to keep quiet and get back in line…pronto.

        • Go to any sentencing list in the District Court and you wi ll quickly see how perverse this is.

          What a shame it’s not a decision of the higher courts that is binding.

          Regardless I hope lawyers up and down NZ will be using this defense tomorrow morning.

          They will probably end up making a law to prevent drunkenness being considered a mitigating factor in assault.

          In the meantime drunken wife beaters rejoice.

    • Police said the 2 girls were not victims and dropped charges.

      The police significantly reduced the charges relating to the boys.

      But the judge went further and reckoned there were really no victims. Given the defendants privileged life and connections.

      I wish I was wrong about my corruption claims. You be the judge.

  25. You need to know something.

    The relationship between media government and police.

    The media need connections with govt and police to get stories. Often pretty young women cultivate relationships with police. They even get invited to their piss ups. For example.

    So they do favours. A great example is the media running campaigns to create public concern about an issue ahead of a law change. They create the impression the law is in response to public concern. In reality the police or govt wanted the change and the media created the justification.

    The media spin and constant reporting on male violence against women is an example. In response there has been a shit ton of anti male legislation most of you know nothing about.

    The media led hysteria about the Millane case is a planned prelude to reverse onus and undermining any defense.

    The media is hard left so are naturally authoritarian. They do the bidding of the authorities for that reason and to get stories.

    It’s all very complicated and dirty.

  26. Just remember, even though the Labour sex attacker did not go to jail, you will if you identify him.

    It’s not by coincidence Angry Andy suddenly wants tougher laws around this. They will be watching.

    Don’t expect a discharge without conviction.

    • From your link:

      …..”Thee who cannot be named is of course not white as can be seen in the pixelated shots to date, so doesn’t quite fit the usual narrative.”…….

      Which would make me less certain that the arsehole is the son of the minister many suspect.

      • From the ZB report also linked.

        “Further sexual assault allegations in the Labour Party this year have already been linked back to the young man, Priest said.”

        So this perv continues to walk the streets gratis while still fulfilling his fondling fetish. FFS.

      • Could be a tan and lighting. Also Labour members are sexually deviant and loose when drinking.

        It’s highly unlikely even his mother has a clue who his father is.

        Though to be fair she may have been raped by another Labour member, as is so often the case.
