  1. Ms Ardern on 17 April abandoned any plans to implement the tax – not just under this government, but for as long as she’s in charge.

    She said she fought hard for it and made the case but that it failed to pull through. she then said SHE decided that it was a no go.

    Well the truth was that NZ First were never going to support it.

    “I just couldn’t get the numbers, and it wasn’t for lack of trying.”

    “We can find, and will find greater ways to achieve fairness in our system,” she said.

    “There’s a range of options but I need to go and develop that plan for 2020, because as I say we’ve just come off the back of a debate we’ve been having since 2011.”

    As per situation normal for Labour and her slimy Labour mates there will soon be a plethora of new taxes upon those that earn this countries taxable income.

    Suffice to say we are led by a lying two faced tart.

    Apparently, lots of the population admire that.

    • Indeed Comrade Viking,
      The “rich pricks” think they’ve won, but soon the will see the full Glory of Dear Leaders plan: Making Aoteraroa Glorious Again by using any tax necessary. Soon will come the day when all the plebs are equally hungry, standing in line to receive a “sausage”on “bread” from Dear Leader, who will of course warmly receive them with a tilted head, and furrowed brow, and they will leave full of satisfaction from Dear Leaders kindness and compassion.
      Oh, Comrade, it will be so glorious – even the thought of it warms my heart on this cold autumn morning.

      That is all Plebs, back to work.

    • On the money Viking. The upcoming budget is going to take the form of a “Revenge Budget”. The “rich pricks” are going to have to be taught a lesson. They’re going to feel the full force of the PM’s wrath for not lying down and taking CGT up the bum.

      How can we know this? Because there is an absence of the usual dribs and drabs of non-announcement, pre-announcements about budget initiatives. The plan is going to be deluge us with so many anti-capital, anti-competitive, poverty-creating measures that there’ll be too many to combat.

      If they had anything to crow about, they’d be doing it already. Governments go quiet when they’re going to royally screw the populace. Don’t be fooled, the next few weeks are the calm before the storm.

      There’ll be money for:
      – censorship
      – further retrospective criminalisation of honest gun-owners
      – increasing the muslim refugee intake now that the UN Migration pact is in force
      – increasing dependency on welfare
      There’ll be money-grabs through:
      – further attacks on the fiscal viability of mum & dad property investors
      – increases in tax rates for top earners
      – Chicken-Little climate alarmism environmental wealth re-distribution taxes
      – flexibility for local authorities to go wild on rates

      Hell hath no fury like a communist woman scorned on CGT.

      Brace yourselves YSB-ers.

      • Yesterday on Magic Winston Peters told Peter Williams when questioned why he had signed the Immigration Pact, Peters said it was to “stop the trade of women and children”. I thought bullshit? That has never been mentioned anywhere else has it, and sounded like Peters stretching the truth to dig himself out of another very unpopular hole.

The COLL should reflect that come election time the taxpayers may CHOOSE to throw you out on your arse.

      • Will some of those other taxes in the budget be a step too far for Winston Peters?
        Will he vote for the passing of the budget in total, or will it have to
        go piece by piece?
        How close will it run to a vote of confidence in the government may arise?
        I have never voted for Winston, and never cared about the arrogant fool.
        The only respect I have is, not to underestimate him, and just what he can get away with, well until, ….. and there is always a first time.

  2. ve Webster’s seven-year struggle took another blow last week following a decision by Immigration Minister Iain Lees-Galloway to further deny his family full residency status.

    In a letter sent on April 23, Lees-Galloway said he was not prepared to grant residence to Webster and his family but had granted him a 24 month work visa.. His wife Gail and daughter Rebecca were also granted corresponding 24 month open work visas.

    https://www.newsie.co.nz/news/148269-pm-jacinda-ardern-on-capital-gains-tax-lsquoi-could-not-get-support-of-nz-firstrsquo.html?fbclid=IwAR3QvMkNRSxsr6bEXj95KReD-ImGOCWM21ZInxaqILDTM0ugMNWX1lCrDxQ

    So we can bring in all manner of shit heads like Tarrant and that fellow in jail who is Jacinda’s mate but we can’t allow decent hard working people to stay.
    Something wrong here.
    Clearly the immigration rules need a clean out along with the Minister.

    • Guy just needs to adopt Islam or claim he is transgender and has been bullied and then the luvvies will be breaking down his door to help.
      As well as residency the govt will probably throw in a house and a cash grant just for good measure.
      New Zealands immigration policy is not driven by who will add value to the country, instead it is based around feeling sorry for “disadvantaged” groups and giving them priority over people who will actually pay tax instead of bludging.

  3. Fuck up after Fuck up.
    Your friends voted these stupid bastards into power.

    A new land transport rule agreed to by Cabinet aims to help avert thousands of bus services being cancelled and give bus drivers the rest breaks they need to keep passengers safe, Transport Minister Phil Twyford announced.

    The new rule is in response to concerns raised by councils, bus operators and unions that new rest and meal break entitlements, which come into effect on Monday 6 May, would cause the cancellation of numerous daily bus services.

    https://www.newsie.co.nz/news/148263-new-rule-to-help-keep-bus-services-running.html

    More to come.
    Hopefully, the new IRD system will not be able to cope with all the new ways of collecting tax that they are dreaming up cause that would be a good thing.

    • The new IRD computer software has already fucked up by repaying credit balances on taxpayer accounts in credit, although some of that credit may be provisional tax paid in advance. Not sure if you make a tax repayment wrongly is recoverable as under the paper system such cheques usually had an attached notice stating you could not appeal.

  4. MDMA

    MDMA was the second most commonly detected illicit drug across the country, with an estimated consumption rate of 4kg on average each week.

    MDMA use is most prevalent in Canterbury District, closely followed by Southern District (Southland).

    • One factor I’d point out is the figures are for Nov-Jan period…. Once upon a time in my youth, that was a period of excess for drinking & drug taking, with the summer weather, music festivals & events, New Years and a decent holiday away from work, which will obviously make for inflated readings compared to the rest of the year…

  5. Am I loosing my mind or has KB gone backwards…? Reading a post and comments on the CHCH businessman who has pled guilty to sharing the shooters video, had me dumbstruck!

    Along with the teens (more than one) including at least one who is still remanded in custody (along with Mr Arps) without bail for sharing the video and/or attempting to modifyit into a meme type video/image. The calls for jail time etc in the comments is outrageous!!!!

    This comment from a WO user echoes my opinions exactly:
    Breitbart News today “A New Zealand citizen faces a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison for sharing the video of the Christchurch mosque shooting on Instagram.
    Christchurch local Philip Arps pleaded guilty to distributing the video, which was recorded by the gunman as he massacred Muslims and bystanders in March.”
    Am reassured that our safety is now assuresd and I no longer will be disgruntled – except for perhaps:
    7 Dec 2018 “Home detention for a young Northlander who punched a grandfather and left him to die during a road rage incident was a serious and deterrent punishment, the judge said.”
    20 April 2018 “The young man whose driving in an illegal street race contributed to the deaths of four people has evaded prison after he was sentenced to 12 months’ home detention.
    Dylan Cossey, 21, was also ordered to complete 400 hours’ community service and was disqualified from driving for seven years.”
    7 Feb 2019 “A teenager who admitted killing a workmate at an Auckland factory will not be facing any time behind bars.
    Lima Feleti, 18, was instead sentenced to 10 months’ home detention by Justice Kit Toogood during a hearing at the High Court in Auckland this week.
    The teen had earlier pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of 19-year-old Hamuwera Holloway.”

    Yes – we sure know how to treat those who dare show a video that is still widely available on the world wide web – it is still okay to look at those pesky ISIS people chopping a few heads off, that is still available and you can kill people and not do any jail time.

    • This whole affair really shows the power the state has to make examples of people they disapprove of when it suits them.
      In normal times this “crime” would probably earn you periodic detention if you are lucky but because Christchurch has been deemed by the state as special the expectation has been made to the courts to throw the book at anyone who offends sensitivities.
      These convictions are just NZ’s version of show trials to show the world how virtuous we are.

        • But Ed their is more that the real judiciary involved in the sentencing process these days. A favorable cat and paste report from a Parole Officer could see any sentence “moderated.” All the time watching so many soft sentences were from dud judges it has been more from an unseen force. Some of whom have barely been in the roll long enough to be entitled to sick leave yet. The rule of law seems to be the last consideration but it does keep the prison numbers down?

  6. “In this context,” the statement adds. “Pope Francis donated US $500,000 to assist migrants in Mexico. This amount will be distributed among 27 projects in 16 dioceses and among Mexican religious congregations that have asked for help in order to continue providing housing, food and basic necessities to these our brothers and sisters.”

  7. I was attempting to pick up a bit of stuff in a New York bar when a local came up behind me and whispered in my ear. “It’s ok,” I said to him. “I understand you Americans can be a bit parochial and there’s no shame in it.” I carried on with my chat up lines and he did it again. “Look,” I said. “It’s really no big deal. I know people in England who have never left the country either.” He kept whispering to me every 10 minutes until I finally got the bird to leave the bar and come back to my hotel. Anyway, we kissed and cuddled and smooched and in the end I undressed her and realised what the bloke had meant when he kept telling me she’d never been abroad.

  8. Going through the MSM sites this morning (I was bored waiting for my washing machine to finish) I couldn’t help but notice the number of columns warning of an “increase in alt-right” activity.

    I’m not completely sure what “alt-right” is.

    Is the “alt” short for alternative? If so alternative to what?

    Or maybe it’s alter, “alt-right” therefore meaning changing right to whatever the author thinks is suitable?

    Or altercate? Does the term mean those on the right who happily argue their position?

    Althea perhaps? Are these “right” people plants?

    Althorn? Are these people referred to as “horns” possibly meaning they are a bit loud?

    Perhaps, after some thought, I’ll settle on altruist, these “alt-right” people must be very kind, giving individuals and the MSM are recognising this fact.

    By why the warning? Isn’t giving and kindness a good thing?

    Are the MSM worried goodness, kindness and giving might prevail?

    • I have tried to find the article that proved that many in the media haven’t a clue what alt-right means. They called Carl Benjamin, Sargon of Akkad, alt-right and the journalist actually apologised stating he didn’t know what alt-right is.

      Alt-right is short hand for Alternative Right. Pre-2016 adherents to the term considered (US) conservatism to be a failure. “Cuckservative” I think was even a title of the book…which is a pretty good summation of what they thought of the traditional right winger. This era of alt-right was unapologetic over Western civilisation being superior to the rest.

      Prior to 2016, there were elements of the alt-right who were white-nationalists, especially Richard Spencer. So the term did have some legitimate controversy.

      When Trump won in 2016, the aforementioned Spencer in the aftermath poisoned white-nationalism with the alt-right; making alt-right a synonym of white-nationalism with the media only too willing to promote this image. It has given a delighted media a new term to label anyone they don’t like; as their older epithets have been overused (it helps to have newer insults to keep their sting).

      So basically there are two distinct eras for alt-right.

      When I mentioned Carl Benjamin being labelled alt-right (post 2016), well Benjamin is mixed race, so by definition cannot be alt-right. Not the media usually cares. As I mentioned the other day, they’d labelled Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux alt-right. While I believe they could meet the ethnic criteria (unlike Benjamin), neither of them subscribe to alt-right ideology as espoused by Spencer.

      I’ve probably rambled on too long. To the point: it’s a club that the media wield to bash anyone they don’t like with. They’ve never bothered to research the background and prefer to remain ignoramuses. They have this new word-weapon and that’s all that matters to them.

      • Words do matter.

        In Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, Wonderland’s “Master of Words” reveals that simple truth to Alice:

        “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”
        “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

        “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master — that’s all.”

      (If you think the attacks on Bridges are bad by the media, wait until Collins is leader. The only possible escape clause Collins has over that connection is Slater is supposed to be an invalid due to his stroke, but I doubt that will be much defence).

      • Karl Popper published in 1945 under the title “The Open Society and its Enemies” and a latter article here, under the ‘Proportional representation’.

        small parties can exercise a disproportionately great—and often decisive—influence, both on the formation of a government and on its resignation, and so on all its decisions. Most important of all, it means the decay of responsibility. For in a coalition government there is reduced responsibility for all the partners in the coalition.

      • Churchill:- “Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time”
        in Parliament and acknowledged to some one else.

        in theory, may be far removed from “representing the will of the people”. Of course, the small party may not be strongly represented in the new government. But its power will be very great since it may topple the government at any time. All this grossly violates the idea that lies at the root of proportional representation: the idea that the influence exercised by any party must correspond to the number of votes it can muster.

        Perhaps we could have alternating systems of democracy, change over every 2 decades 🙂

There is serious dysfunction in the current Govt, and the next election will be nothing like the last one. The left are doomed to lose if they stray too far from the centre. Personally I’d prefer a National/Act coalition with the middle class as their focus. We’ll see….

  11. Al Jazeera, the biased media outlet based in Zero Democracy Qatar, has been secretly filming One Nation members for over 2 years.
    Now that there is an election in the next month they are using this secret footage to discredit the legally registered Australian Political Party.
    This is gross interference in another nations politics.
    I am sure that 2 years of well funded secret filming of senior members of the Australian Labor or Liberal Parties would yield some ugly results.
    Shorten would be a star for sure.

    Al Jazeera, from the corrupt Qatar. Refer to the bribery for FIFA world cup 2022.
    Even their neighbours- Saudi Arabia and UAE- despise them.
    Qatar interfered badly in Syria – another enemy- and poured Billions into trying to oust the leader.
    Al Jazeera and Qatar are pure scum and should be deplatformed in NZ, AU and Democratic countries. This would be more value than Don Brash, Milo Y and Lauren Southern.
    They serve no good. Only evil.
    The people of Qatar don’t know what democracy is.
    The people of Australia got a taste of how to interfere in an actual democratic country with this one.

    Sadly the lazy, biased mainstream media use this footage for their own manipulative ends.
    Journalists the world over stink.
    They stink real bad.
    The Al Jazeera Guns/NRA story has been discredited already as things were taken out of context with fuzzy recording, a lack of timeline, and selective editing. ie its bovine excrement.
    Tracy Grimshaw, who ‘interviewed’ Pauline Hanson on channel Nine – who own Stuffed in NZ- is rather despicable.
    It was a hit job with material secretly recorded in a multiyear campaign funded by middle east oil money.

    This was over Steve Dickson being secretly filmed in a strip club by al Jazeera.
    Recall in 2007 that the deplorable Kevin Rudd was found out at a strip club, also in the USA, prior to becoming PM.
    He claimed to be too drunk to remember. So, being so drunk that you lose your memory cancels out going to a strip club but you can still be Australian Labor PM.
    A dreadful one at that. Twice!

    Why didn’t Dickson use that excuse?
    It gets pretty dirty in Australian politics.
    The next three weeks will be grubby.

      Maybe she would feel more ethically comfortable if she filled her kids lolly bags with fair trade organic vegetable snacks.
      I am sure the kids will just adore them.

  15. Woods will speak at a New Zealand Wind Energy Association conference in Wellington on Wednesday.

    The Government has quietly released its annual oil and gas exploration tender, ditching the previous government’s approach to market it to the public as a great investment opportunity.

    New Zealand Petroleum and Minerals on Tuesday launched Block Offer 2018, inviting oil and gas companies to apply for permits to explore in designated areas in onshore Taranaki.

    While it sent out a media release, Energy and Resources Minister Megan Woods didn’t.

    Transparent as heel. Eh.
    Bought to you by Jacinda. The most transparent PM ever.
    Worst government ever in NZ’s history.

  16. I see the Bitch in Charge has decided to decriminalise all drugs. Who gave her the mandate for this? I have some sympathy with users not being thrown in the clink, but the new proposal is even opposed by the police. Drugs are a scourge on society, the dealers and producers should be shot for the thousands of deaths they directly contribute to. Sure addicts need medical assistance, but a stint inside for the hardcore users ( Reminds me of a certain friend of Clarke with an Emirates E) with medical assistance might sober them up a bit quicker. Or is she just ensuring the First Fuck doesn’t get pinged?

      • No matter what side of te drug debate one sits on, you can be assured that if this bunch of muppetts has decided something, it will result in a fuck up, and the wrong people will be penalised.

        • I agree that a total fuck up is preordained. As you probably recall it is my position that Class C drugs should be treated exactly in the manner of alcohol. ie legal & regulated.

          My liberal attitude doesn’t extend to P or narcotics though I prefer a solution more in line with that practised in Portugal. My real concern is that the police are keepers of the peace & gatherers of evidence whereas the Courts decide guilt & punishment.

          We do ourselves no favours by forcing our police to usurp the role of judges.

            • In my defense I’m a classic liberal. Do whatever you like with whoever or whatever, however & whenever you like but don’t expect me to pay for it. 🙂

  17. With the Herald now wanting to charge for “premium content” will many people think its not worth visiting their site anymore at all.
    As of now their Alexa Toolbar rating is 10, Stuff is on 7, Trademe 5 and YSB has now risen to 5,900.
    It will be interesting to see the results in a month or so…
    You can get the toolbar yourself, its a lot of fun
