  1. Cindy’s got her election ‘game face’ on. This is when she shines, Labour electioneering is all about the shiny packaging.

    • And Stuff has started the campaign on behalf. Glorify Cindy, denigrate NZF + National. And next election the media will have elected Labour + Greens.

      Despite they being the two parties who covered up for sexual abuse, drug lords getting residency, police covering for families drug abuse, selling policy for $, removing freedoms, etc.

      • It is just not Stuff that have turned red , this is the start of the media drive to keep Labour and the Greens in power. I think they have seen the opportunity to get rid of NZ Fiirst after his stupid outburst over his Foundation and the way donations are moved and Labour looking like doing a deal with the media to help them to survive also.

          They will stay bought as well because they all want the free money!
          Otherwise it’s they close down and the media join the dole queue!

  2. Climate protesters to target OMV headquarters next
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/12/climate-protesters-to-target-omv-headquarters-next.html

    Hundreds of people are preparing to form a human barricade around an oil company’s New Plymouth headquarters.

    It’s the latest in a series of rolling actions against OMV, the last major overseas oil company operating here.

    Greenpeace New Zealand programme director Niamh O’Flynn hopes they stir the pot.

    “People are going to be shutting down ‘business as usual’ for the company,” she told Newshub.

    OMV is currently preparing to start oil drilling off the Taranaki coast. While the Government has banned much future exploration and drilling, existing contracts will be honoured and there are exceptions in some regions.”

    • Ryan Bridge: Hypocrite climate protesters should be put in handcuffs
      https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/12/opinion-hypocrite-climate-protesters-should-be-put-in-handcuffs.html

      “OPINION: At the weekend climate protesters poured oil over the steps at Simon Bridges’ electorate office, defacing his private property.

      Last week, it was Timaru where they boarded a support vessel, blocking it from leaving to work at a rig off the coast of Taranaki.

      It’s a flagrant disregard for private business, for commercial enterprise and basic property rights.”

      I couldn’t agree more.

      • Time for the Police to actually do their job.
        Have charges been laid against the GP idiots who climbed the Majestic Centre in Wellington earlier in the year (where OMV have their NZ HO) or is that being swept under the same piece of carpet the Youth Camp and the PM’s office worker issues were swept under ?

  3. When National were the Government and stories of corruption and other dealings like the Panama tax papers, or the Todd Barclay secret tape recordings, John Keys ponytail pulling and McCullys Saudi Arabia sheep deal came to light the media and the Journalists had a field telling the public what they thought. But where are these same Journalists now when Labour the Coalition and Phil Twyford are borrowing money for Infrastructure and housing without informing the voter of how much and what for.
    https://www.interest.co.nz/opinion/102808/crown-company-borrows-money-infrastructure-crown-entity-rate-537-sake-keeping-debt
    Now I posted this yesterday as this is political fraud when you can hide what you have borrowed from the taxpayer and Journalists like Jane Bowen, Bryce Edward’s Barry Soper , Henry Cooke and many others condemned National at every opportunity for what they deemed not to be right and just couldn’t give a shit of what most would call corruption from members in this Government.

    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/world/second-london-bridge-terrorist-attack-victim-named-saskia-jones-23

    “The two fatalities were identified as Saskia Jones, 23, and Jack Merritt, 25, who had already been named by his family as having perished in the attack Saturday near London Bridge.

    “Both were graduates of the University of Cambridge and were involved in the Learning Together programme — Jack as a coordinator and Saskia as a volunteer,” police said.”

        • The Boris Johnson retort that Labour passed the law in 2008 that allowed sentences to be cut in half is appalling.

          This is actually worse than NZ’s Liebour lot blaming Notional for the unresolved elements of the last two years on ‘nine years of neglect’.

          The Conservatives have been in government pretty much all his decade (May 2010) . They have had ‘nine years’ plus to change things and they did not. Sure the first 5 years were in coalition with the dippy Dems but from 2015 they had a clear majority – until Treason stuffed it up.

          The Conservatives have wasted political capital up the wazoo and paralysed Parliament for the last 3 years re inaction over Brexit.
          Treason May was just as treasonous to Britain as were the Cambridge Five- Philby, Blunt, Burgess.

          Boris Johnson has not demonstrated at this point he is not lurking under the same umbrella.
          His proposed Brexit sellout leaves a lot of room for improvement.
          He only looks ‘not so bad’ because Jeremy Corbyn is an off-the-charts muppet.

      • There’s a very real double standard applied for the Muslim problem and that is the government’s complete refusal to treat Islam as a threat despite evidence of their A) failure to integrate, B) demands for separate foods and dress codes, C) extreme anti democratic anti Western views, D) refusal to use the ‘infidel’ banking system and E) real ongoing risk of terrorist action in the name of their imaginary god. This is not am exhaustive list, but it serves to illustrate my point.

        My point is that for almost every problem the authoritarian socialist response is a heavy handed banning of something and restriction of people’s freedom. Like, an Australian nutter cornes here and shoots 50+ people…. response is to blanket ban certain firearms for EVERYBODY. A couple of bad drivers kill while using mobile phones…. response is to ban ALL mobile phone use while driving…. etc. These are just a couple of examples but you get the idea I’m sure.

        So why is it that Muslims continue to be tolerated in this country when they are obviously totally against everything we stand for and they represent a real terrorist threat? Why aren’t they treated like the threat that they are?

        I can’t understand it.

          • As I said in another thread the texting-while-driving problem was created through banning people from talking on the phone – so many people choose to text instead, with the phone down below window level so as not to be seen. Law of unintended consequences.

      • The Mu slimes are successfully alienating their hosts globally and will wonder why they start being treated like Jews in 1930s Germany, they should hope that history does not repeat the events that followed, best leave now whilst you can. They fail to see the similarities – easily identifiable, cause unrest, be seen as having an unfair advantage of the locals without contributing and so can be blamed for the economic failures that will follow the coming recession/depression and then it will too late to escape.

    Veteran Fairlie shearer Tony Dobbs and trans-Tasman newcomer Allan Oldfield, of Geraldine, who together won a World title in France in July, maintained New Zealand’s unbeaten record in blade shearing tests against Australia by beating Johnathon Dalla and Glen Isla by a wide margin of almost 43 points.

    Or I could email Ardern and tell her I dislike sucking on paper straws
    Or I could post of Trademe to a very large audience – but posts get voted off.

    • Even writing a letter to someone, and not posting it, can be a cathartic and healthy activity.
      The size the readership, whatever it is, hasn’t really factored in for me.

      The only turn off in a free speech environment would be the monotony of boorish people who want to bang a drum and enjoy being inflammatory in a consequence free forum. But luckily, most people here seem sane and sober – even if I can see we won’t agree on every particular every time, and the majority of posts reflect that.
      If any location was primarily defined by being a hang out for knuckle dragging types with all the charm and subtlety of a stick poked in the eye, then that could become tiresome no matter the size of the pond.
      Or to take the pond analogy in another direction – any party is less fun when you find a turd in the punch bowl.

      Besides (on the readership side), this blog might well grow, given there are enough people growing bored or frustrated with aspects of BfD and KB.

      “The Council of Licenced Firearms Owners told Newshub that information on 70,000 firearm hand-in notifications, the firearms and owner bank account numbers, was accessible to web page users.

      They were able to screenshot and download information. This means that gang members or other criminal elements could have accessed this information before our supporters found the breach,” a spokesperson says.

      “Keep an eye on your bank account – possibly notify your bank to stop unusual transactions. You may consider whether you should take extra personal and home security precautions.

      “This is exactly what we feared of an incompetent agency in charge of an online register.”

  13. Counterpoint.

    I am finding it interesting that there is all this sympathy pouring out for two clowns who were killed in London Bridge.
    They both attended Cambridge- the well known base for British Communism and training ground for the Cambridge Five- Kim Philby; Guy Burgess etc
    The indoctrination of bad ideas at Cambridge did not stop with them.

    These two dead people were at a conference where they wanted shorter and far more lenient sentences for criminals. If any punishment at all.
    They were of the mindset of Kelvin Davis and Angry Andy.

    They were killed by someone whom they thought should not be in jail and their stupidity and naivety of getting in the lion’s den cost them their lives.
    They were crim huggers and too stupid to understand the people they were advocating for.
    No amount of hiding away from reality in Cambridge lecture theaters could fix that stupid.

    ..” Saskia had a great passion for providing invaluable support to victims of criminal injustice”…

    Ah no, she was blindly advocating for perpetrators of crime, not the victims. She did not care about the real victims.

    …The conference aimed to bring together convicts and criminology students, to learn more about “stigma, marginalisation and the role of intergroup contact in reducing prejudice.”
    and
    Merritt’s father has asked that his son’s death not be used to toughen up the UK’s justice system…

    All the Criminology degrees in the world and Honours degrees and crap studied in hallowed halls will not make up for understanding the real world.
    These are the same type as those who advocate for communism/socialism – people from comfortable middle class upbringings.
    The people who experience life at the low end would seldom advocate for a continuation of misery.

    No sympathy from me for their deaths.
    They were pursuing a life of drawing down taxpayer funds to make life less safe for said taxpayer.
    They died …and proved their unicorn pursuit was wrong.

    Some bad bastards are born broken – mental health issues, intravenous drug use during pregnancy, poor or close family breeding etc.
    That is accepting reality.

    Lighting candles after a street murder never addresses the real issues and kicks the can down the road with another mess for people to clean up later. Rinse and repeat.

    This may actually be useful to other drippy types with no life experience trying to promote utopian ideas that have no basis in reality; but I doubt it.
    Roll their lives forward 20 years and this is what we see with the likes of Phail Twyford; Ian Lees Gallopaway; Michael Wood.

    My brothers friend is from NZ but lived in England nearly 30 years. He was in NZ a few weeks ago and we caught up over drinks. He says he barely recognises his children born in England and going through the ‘education’ system. Basically he says they are soft in the head- his own kids – in their early 20s.
    They have been softened up and feel guilt over so many situations they never created.
    It is a sad impasse. The brainwashing is working.

    The real question we should be asking is why did Jacob Rubenstein* /the British cops come in and assassinate Lee Harvey /Usman Khan when he was already subdued?
    Whose orders were they following and what are they hiding?

    * Jack Ruby

      ……”Jack lived his principles; he believed in redemption and rehabilitation, not revenge, and he always took the side of the underdog.”…….

    • That is harsh, but I did pick up on the fact the victims did seem to be aspiring ‘crim huggers’. The father said his son wouldn’t want there to be any nasty mean old laws hardened up as a result of his cultural exchange incident with Mr Khan.
      Harshly put to suggest that sympathy is undeserved, but one of those things where such irony around the victims takes a little of the sting away, perhaps.

      Final point – on the police shooting Mr Khan. Bloody good job.
      Shoot to kill, and then bury all Jihadi types with a pig carcass.
      No point locking them up, or trying to de-radicalise them with golf lessons.
      Not likely to be much intelligence to be gained from a guy who resorted to using knives. If a cell had a dirty bomb or attempted chemical attack in future that is when you want them live, and need to attach hot wires to some testicles to make them sing.
      In this case though; looks like suicide vest. Shoot to kill.
      No pre-planning or Jack Ruby conspiracy in snuffing someone like that out. I mean, why the fuck would the police be behind this man, or the stabber be a ‘patsy’ like you are implying.
      I would expect armed cops around London Bridge are ready to go with lethal force these days. Last time (2017 London Bridge) they shot the attackers dead within 8 minutes. They would be mad not to be prepared, and have rules of engagement around anything that looks like a suicide vest.
      Occam’s razor applies here. Nothing really surprising or unexpected to be seen.

      ………..Apart from the narwhal tooth.

  16. Labour result lowest in two years, National-ACT could form Govt – 1 NEWS Colmar Brunton poll

    “Labour has fallen to its lowest level of support since December 2017, down to 39 per cent. Its results have been sliding ever since a surge in popularity last April saw the party hit 48 per cent.

    Despite National also falling in support down to 46 per cent it still has the numbers to form a Government with ACT.

    The David Seymour-led party rose slightly to two per cent, according to the poll results.

    New Zealand First stayed below the MMP threshold at four per cent, the party last reaching the five per cent target in June. The Green Party remained steady on seven per cent.

    Undecided voters sat at 17 per cent.

    Though still strongly leading in the preferred Prime Minister rankings, Jacinda Ardern also took a dive to her worst result since taking the top job.”

          NZ First has dropped by around 75% on the last election night result.
          Unlike Act they don’t have an electoral seat, which means if they don’t gain any electorate seats then <5% will spell oblivion.

          Keep up thickie.

          Have you considered that if you changed your profile name to "Hates Jews, Pigs and Bitches" and dropped the insulting posts on YSB users, then 80% of your posts could be dropped.

          I am wondering if your shitposting is a brilliant tactic by the Police.
          Perhaps you are actually not a monotonous moronic non-entity – but more like a Police plant to try and lure out the REAL mythical white supremacist.
          Like a fake duck on a duck shooters pond, a piece of shit like you in Free Speech forum might be able to lure out real white supremacists.

            But everyone on here was predicting a big move to ACT.
            Good to see the New Conservatives on the board
            I was also surprised to see NZF still on 4 after all their bad news, maybe its Shane Jones getting some traction?
            Yes and why are people still voting for the TOPS party are they still going?
            Still the trend is heading in the “right” direction

          • Received this from ACT

            Who governs New Zealand after 2020 is in the balance

            The 1 News-Colmar Brunton poll released this evening confirms ACT is appealing to an increasing number of voters. And, for the second time in just a few months, the polls show ACT holding the balance of power.

            Our own research shows that ACT is appealing to a broader cross-section of New Zealanders, the common themes being: alarm at the direction of the country; rejection of this Government’s inept management of the country; the timidity of National; and, the realisation ACT is the party to hold the two major parties to account.

            An increased ACT presence in the next Parliament will be a true game-changer. David Seymour’s skilful shepherding of the End of Life Choice Bill through Parliament last month, his introduction of charter schools and their quick success, three strikes legislation, 90-day trials, and the Productivity Commission are ample evidence ACT doesn’t tinker – it reforms and innovates.

            We need more New Zealanders firming up their support for ACT. We need their votes. But we also need their party membership and financial support. We need to get in front of every potential ACT voter and explain in easily understood terms what our policies are, how they link to our principles and our vision for a fairer, freer, more prosperous New Zealand. We need them to understand how, with an existing presence in Parliament, there is no elusive 5% threshold, and that every party vote counts.

            We have the plans in place: we are very close to finalising our campaign messaging and how we get these messages in front of target audiences. It could be a long run to the election or, given the current volatility in the polls and stresses between the coalition parties, it could be an early election requiring a lot of intensive effort and saturation campaigning. Either option is expensive. Every membership subscription and donation counts!

  17. This is the outcome of the last London Bridge terror attack.
    The dumb fucks will probably send him to the same rehab facility as his attackers.
    Sick… sick…. sick.
    Hell in a hand basket.

    UK Forces ‘Hero’ Who Was Stabbed By Terrorists On London Bridge To Undergo ‘De-Radicalization’

    The BBC called him a “hero,” Brits pushed for him to be awarded one of England’s highest honors, the George Cross medal, and a Swedish brewery named a beer after him.

    Larner has now been added to a terrorist watchlist know as Britain’s “Prevent” program after fears he could become an anti-Islam extremist, the Sun reported Monday.

    • A very handsome man.

      “{H}e was jailed for nine and-a-half years in December 2016”.
      Here we are in December 2019.
      I was never very good at maths, but this shows that the people running our jails and judiciary need education around numeracy.

      Why do they issue a length of term at all, when it can be decided to let someone out a third of the way in?

    • it would be a nice thing, but he already said the breach of private data has ‘no relation’ on the proposal of a national register of ALL firearms.
      This is despite it entirely proving a point and confirming fears.
      These people are not open minded, nor interested in owning their mistakes.
      It has been the pattern from the beginning, when the root cause of the massacre (the licensing of a foreign resident, without proper referees or interview or enquiry) has never been the focus.
      Hijacking the emotion for a pre-existing agenda was the way.
      It is a damn shame, since I have had good relations with my own Local Arms Officer – but now the police and politicians are going after us all collectively.

      If the government had any sense of integrity or care around performance in the role, then Ian -Lees Galloway, and certainly that cretin Phil Twyford, would have resigned long before Nash was shamed

            It’s a major flaw with our economic system. Infinite growth with finite resources. Unless we can break the known laws of physics to explore the universe.

  20. According to the recent Economic Insight: South East Asia report, compiled by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, the Communist nation’s economy is expected to grow 6.7% this year, the fastest rate in Southeast Asia.

    The country’s emergence as a global manufacturing and export powerhouse has also seen personal wealth explode. According to The Wealth Report 2019, published by British real estate consultancy Knight Frank, the number of millionaires in Vietnam is expected to grow from 12,327 last year to 15,776 by 2023, a healthy increase of 28%.
