    • The only group facing embarrassment are our corrupt senior police. And Labour needs them for their dirty work and cover ups.

      This is one of Arderns most expensive PR productions to date.

      • Senior Police officers don’t make a Police force and because one senior Officer may have made mistakes is not good reason to slag off many that do the job. My son in law was one that Guarded the mine for a couple of days and didn’t deserve the abuse he got for doing the job and I also have a nephew whose wife’s brother was killed in the mine that is very bitter about it. But John Key was the one in the end that would not risk more lives unless it was proved safe to enter the mine and i actually take my hat off to him as it was his job to way up the facts to whether more lives should be lost.

    • Their sexual orientation has nothing to do with this – they moved in together, in Abu Dhabi in 2015. That’s 4 years ago in a country that doesn’t allow for same-sex couples. They did it. The fact they can’t prove they’re in a stable, long term relationship does though.

      No sympathy for them.

      So they really don’t know where they are living. I see 4 places mentioned in the article.
      New Zealand
      Aotearoa
      Ireland

  2. This is the most pathetic disgusting electioneering stunt ever. There are many of those families whose men were buried in the explosion that do not want their bodies bought out if that is ever possible. What about their feelings about this? The amount of money that has been spent on this is a disgrace. Angry is wanting to cover his incompetence so is falling backwards. There are many that are to blame for this disaster, and Angry is one of them. The Greenies for wanting the snails kept safe (that then died in the care of a Government agency? was it I think it was some science lab) are another lot. This is past the point of ridiculous.

        In fact idol worship is the thing most other Christian groups criticize Catholics over.

        It’s because they prey to Mary ect. That’s the idol part.

        As for Jews, they prey to God.

              • Apple or no Apple makes no difference to having a boundary security device on your network.

                Even when you’re paying $35,000 for a MAC Pro a $1,000 monitor stand is ludicrous. And after watching a tear-down – good build quality, but still overpriced. But Apple fanboys defend this as if it’s the gratest thing since cheese was invented.

                Their devices are overpriced, built using slave labour and are significantly more inflexible than most other computing devices. I don’t buy into a locked ecosystem, sorry-not-sorry.

                Nor am I willing to sell a kidney to buy a fashion accessory. I prefer tools, as I use these things day to day in my job. But, I don’t begrudge the people who want to pay extra for a less effective device. They like the locked ecosystem and it plays very well with itself – I won’t argue that. Your choice, my choice.

                I still think Apple Fans are akin to Vegans and other cult-like groups 🙂

  3. In our local “community” network, a lady has been complaining about a family that is parking their work trucks (PUD sized furniture movers) legally in the on-road, public car parks. It’s a recent development; so you’d think there is something going on? Anyway, rather than walking up to them and talking about it – there’s a couple of weeks of spy photos taken from behind a curtain, a complaint to the city council and a complaint to the company that employs them and she’s actively encouraging neighbors to do the same.

    It really bothers me. The potential consequences for those people could range from a fine through to warnings and even dismissal (unlikely, but you know NZ). At this time of year?

    Why not just walk over, knock on their door and have a friendly chat as a neighbor? I’ve asked her the question, but she’s ignoring it. I’m now tempted to drag all my vehicles out of the garage and to help block out all that parking so she absolutely will never get a spot on the road again.

    (We do have parking problems here; far too many families have their garages converted into spare rooms, kids play areas, etc. and then park on-road)

    • In another life we had problems with a young petrol head in our street.

      Rather than snitch to the cops, I knocked on the door and spoke with his parents. They were so grateful as they were getting anonymous hate mail about the issue. The problem stopped.

      It helps to put a human face behind difficult conversations.

  4. I purchased one of these a year ago ($450, iirc) The aim was to get age appropriate content filtering for my kids, to be able to conveniently set daily internet time limits and to have a reasonable security boundary security system in place. Harvey Norman sold me a 2 year subscription ($270) with the device.

    Roll around yesterday and I get an email saying my subscription has been cancelled. I log in to check and not only is my subscription cancelled, but it is also no longer renewable. (Not that it was due now, it’s due in a year)

    I get in touch with Norton support and their comment is “the product is legacy, it is not available on our website anymore”. No mention of it or the subscription options on Harvey Norman’s page. So, fuck Norton. I’ll never buy a product from them again and I’ve found a decent, hardware based alternative that does not require a subscription.

    But can I go after Harvey Norman for a refund on that 2 year subscription? What would you be doing in terms of consumer law in NZ?

    • Perhaps you can get onto the consumer affaires website Pascal. The product did not deliver the expected goods so as you paid what you believed was a 2 year subscription for the product you should be entitled to a refund I think. I could be wrong but worth checking.

    • Lefty activist Brenton Tarrant was motivated by this very thing. “The birth rate”. Not white supremacy. Not racism.

      As a committed environmentalist, he was also concerned how massive population growth would affect the environment.

      As a lefty he wants more gun control and less democracy, which he says is “mob rule”. He loathes conservatives.

              I share some of his concerns regarding the birthrate, but I don’t approve of his methods.

  7. Remember the Panama Papers of a year or two ago?

    Malta’s Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat has announced on national television he’ll resign early in the new year.

    The decision was made after 20,000 protesters marched through the streets of Malta calling for his resignation following the 2017 car bombing which killed journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2019/12/malta-prime-minister-to-resign-amid-protests.html

    Galizia led the Panama papers corruption investigation in Malta. The corruption Caruana Galizia exposed provoked protests on the streets at the time.

    The journalist exposed many powerful figures over the world and gained many enemies by accusing them of funnelling foreign currencies in order to avoid offshore taxes.

    I guess Harry and Meghan’s “tight security” expectations would have prevented other guests from enjoying their Christmas dinner reservations?

  11. ‘Tough year’ for measles globally as polio also makes a troubling comeback
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/world/tough-year-measles-globally-polio-also-makes-troubling-comeback

    This year, the germs roared back.

    Measles tripled. Hepatitis A mushroomed. A rare but deadly mosquito-borne disease increased.

    And that was just the United States.

    Globally, there was an explosion of measles in many countries, an unrelenting Ebola outbreak in Africa and a surge in dengue fever in Asia. There were also backslides in some diseases, like polio, that the world was close to wiping out.

    “It’s been a tough year for infectious diseases,” said Dr Jonathan Mermin of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    A 10-second cameo scene in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York — which shows Donald Trump giving Kevin McCallister (played by Macaulay Culkin) directions to the hotel lobby — has been removed by Canadian Broadcaster Corporation (CBC).

    “Excuse me, where’s the lobby?” asks the Home Alone 2 character Kevin McCallister in the film.

    “Down the hall and to the left,” responds Donald Trump.

    The Left are so pathetic over Trump. The CBC is making headlines for deleting Trump from Home Alone 2

  15. C.S. Lewis:
    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

  17. A woman meets a man in a bar.

    They talk; they connect; they end up leaving together. They get back to his place,and as he shows her around his apartment she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears. There are three shelves in the bedroom, with hundreds and hundreds of cute, cuddly teddy bears carefully placed in rows covering the entire wall!

    It was obvious that he had taken quite some time to lovingly arrange them and she was immediately touched by the amount of thought he had put into organizing the display.

    There were small bears all along the bottom shelf, medium-sized bears covering the length of the middle shelf and huge, enormous bears running all the way along the top shelf.

    She found it strange for an obviously masculine guy to have such a large collection of teddy bears, She is quite impressed by his sensitive side, but doesn’t mention this to him.

    They share a bottle of wine and continue talking and, after awhile, she finds herself thinking,
    ‘Oh my God! Maybe, this guy could be the one! Maybe he could be the future father of my children?’

    She turns to him and kisses him lightly on the lips. He responds warmly.
    They continue to kiss, the passion builds, and he romantically lifts her in
    his arms and carries her into his bedroom where they rip off each other’s
    clothes and make hot, steamy love.

    She is so overwhelmed that she responds with more passion, more creativity, more heat than she has ever known.

    After an intense, explosive night of raw passion with this sensitive guy, they are lying there together in the afterglow. The woman rolls over, gently strokes his chest and asks coyly,

    ‘Well, how was it?’

    The guy gently smiles at her, strokes her cheek, looks deeply into her eyes, and says:

    ‘Help yourself to any prize from the middle shelf.’

  18. Cost of running New Zealand’s prisons rises
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/12/cost-of-running-new-zealand-s-prisons-rises.html

    “The cost to maintain facilities at most of the country’s prisons has risen due to a 10-year half-a-billion dollar contract.
    The Corrections Department says the contract covers more services so can’t be compared with the previous deal which on the face of it was cheaper.
    Its latest annual review shows trans-Tasman company Downer quietly took over the prison facilities contract from Spotless in 2018.
    The 10-year contract covers 16 of the country’s 18 prisons.”

    Didn’t Labour when in opposition have a huge problem with the National government outsourcing the running of NZ prisons to private contractors? Seems the issue no longer concerns them now they are in power.

      Note when one female of a group gets up to go to the “Ladies”. All members of the group will decide to go at the same time even if it means that they have to line up in a queue ten deep to use a one holer.

      • I think that may what prompted it. I wouldn’t say “Kiwi women” though – it’s something we’ve lost overall in society or maybe I’m over romanticizing it. But I miss the clarity of gentlemen and ladies; the differences that we can celebrate. All this homogenization of genders and beliefs and people – it’s taking so much flavour out of life. I can’t even point at a culture, because I’ve met some Chinese women (and men) that … well. Pigs would feel superior in terms of civility. Maybe I’ve been lucky in Mama Bear.

        She’s feminine and strong within that. It doesn’t take anything away from her, it adds to who she is. She’s selfish and friendly. Loves and hates with equal opportunity. Maybe I’m a tad too drunk to philosophize, but I’m real glad I met her. We disagree enough to keep things interesting, but not enough to make them unbearable. Far too much enjoyment out of life, far too much peace and prosperity. It makes it difficult to imagine what the world would be like without her.

        No scratch that, I’ve definitely been lucky with Mama Bear. She’s a lady.
