      • With the serious tensions between Iran/Iraq and the US bringing the world potentially to the brink of a war our PTPM didn’t bother to cut her 8 week holiday short and return to take the helm. Why didn’t anyone notice? Where is the outrage from the MSM? Surely The PTPM cannot justify not being in her office at a time like this. Anyone in the media notice her absence during a potential world crisis?? Hello!



      • It’s a bit early to call Iran out for not handing over the flight data and cockpit voice recorders. In the normal course of events their own aviation enquiry will be underway, and it still needs to be determined who will take the lead in the enquiry.
        The plane was Ukrainian, left an Iraqi airfield, with Canadian, Ukrainian, Iranian and Uk pax aboard, and crashed in Iran.
        The most likely explanation seems to involve an air defence missile being automatically triggered, but you have to wonder why Ukraine took the very risky step of using that airspace, when everyone else grounded their planes knowing there was potential for military action.



        • There are relatively few laboratories in the world capable of reading and analysing the data on the so called black boxes. I very much doubt that Iran has the capability so it makes no sense for them to hang on to the black boxes, unless they have something to hide of course.



  1. Who would thought Prince Harry was a closet soyboy, woke wowser. This is the same Harry Pothead of Apache helicopter commander, and nude in Las Vegas fame. He needs to spend some quality time with Ricky Gervais, but I fear it’s too late. What a royal cock-up. That woman sure has him by the nads. Once they’ve had #2 child (only allowed two for environmental reasons) she’ll have them chopped off completely. He better not still be sporting his man card.



    • It will not last. She will get the taste of freedom. Having thrown off the stifling shackles of the crown, she will find someone else far richer and boot ginger top for six.
      Will she still be a Duchess?



      • All she wanted was the royal wedding and her smugness thought if she caused enough embarrassment to the Royals it would suit her agenda. Notice no matter what the occasion for the family she tops it with her own announcement e.g. Eugene’s wedding the pregnancy Kate’s birthday they are leaving. She is a succubus and has Harry the poor bastard who has issues of his own by the balls.



  2. I have just heard that in order to investigate the cause of the Ukranian plane crash in Iran, they have bulldozed all the wreckage into two pits.
    They are nearly as open and transparent as our COL government.



    • Let us remember history from 1988


      …Iran Air Flight 655 was a scheduled passenger flight from Tehran to Dubai via Bandar Abbas, that was shot down on 3 July 1988 by an SM-2MR surface-to-air missile fired from USS Vincennes, a guided missile cruiser of the United States Navy. The aircraft, an Airbus A300, was destroyed and all 290 people on board, including 66 children, were killed.[1] The jet was hit while flying over Iran’s territorial waters in the Persian Gulf, along the flight’s usual route, …

      …In 1988, a US warship shot down an Iranian commercial plane, killing all onboard. The American captain and his crew were hailed as heroes, Scotland suffered, Libyans were punished, and we are still living with the effects today.

      It began when Iraq invaded Iran on September 22, 1980. America sided with Iraq, and by the time it ended on August 20, 1988, about a million people were dead. What ended the war, however, was an event that took place in the Strait of Hormuz….

      …At 10:17 AM Iranian time (UTC +3:30), 655 finally took off and headed back the way it had come along commercial air corridor Amber 59 – a 20-mile wide lane which stretched directly over the Vincennes.

      Down below, Rogers was having the time of his life blasting Boghammers when his men detected Flight 655. They contacted the plane but got no response. Switching to civilian channels, they ordered the “F-14” to change course.

      If Rezalan received it, he ignored it. He was not the only commercial plane in the vicinity, nor was he flying an F-14 fighter jet.

      Remembering the Stark and the Samuel B. Roberts while in the midst of a skirmish with Boghammars and other armed speed boats, Rogers gave the order to fire. There was a media crew onboard, that day, which recorded the jubilation on the bridge as they confirmed a direct hit on the plane….
      OK Then! 290 dead people on a civilian airliner.
      Shot down by a hotshot idiot US warship captain.

      …As they were already (illegally) in Iranian waters, the Vincennes was the first to arrive. In the sea were 290 dead bodies – 66 of whom were children. There was no more cheering after that, not even from Rogers.

      and then the lies:

      America denied having any ships in Iranian waters and blamed Iran for the incident. They also claimed that 655 was descending as if in attack mode. [way to own up to murder]

      They gave Rogers the Legion of Merit for his performance and the rest of the crew a hero’s welcome in San Diego. They would change their stories years later, but for others, it would be too late….

      The U.S. government never officially apologized for the incident or accepted responsibility, although in 1996 more than $61 million in compensation was paid to the families of the 248 Iranian citizens who died in the crash. As Reagan administration spokesman Marlin Fitzwater put it regarding the eventual monetary settlement, “[The] offer of ex gratia compensation … is a humanitarian effort to ease the hardship of the families. It is offered on a voluntary basis, not on the basis of any legal liability or obligation.”

      Let he without sin cast the first stone.

      Oh and while on this, why was KAL 007 in 1983 directly over a soviet spy base; more than 200 miles off course. A long way. Was it carrying spying equipment and taking a huge risk, or was it masking a US spyplane known to be in the same airspace at the time and possibly (deliberately?) done to press the Russians. South Korea had a debt to the USA for their involvement in the civil war. When the godfather asks you for a favour…..

      There are casualties on both sides in war.
      One casually always is truth.
      Being on the ‘winning side’ we don’t need to talk about the massive firebombing of Tokyo civilians or Germans civilians towards the end of WW2.

      Feel free to downtick me for posting facts.



  3. Justin Trudeau Said The Ukrainian Plane That Crashed In Iran Was Shot Down By Missile

    “The families of the victims and all Canadians want answers. I want answers,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said. Trudeau mentioned that although the plane appeared to have been shot down by a missile, that the incident “may well have been unintentional.”

    When asked about the Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 Thursday morning, Donald Trump said “somebody could have made a mistake.”

    “It was flying in a pretty rough neighborhood,” the president said.
    Asked whether the crash could have been caused by mechanical failure, Trump told reporters, “I personally don’t even think that’s even a question.”



  4. I heard that choppers and the sleeze are over in Sydney being wined and dined.

    They are lapping up the publicity after the good folks back here have finally woken up to her lies.

    With a bit of luck they will stay over there.



  5. I’ve lived in Auckland now since mid-2001.

    And in 18 years the furthest I’ve gone onto the Awhiru Penninsula was Glenbrook, for the historical railway. This weekend a group of us are meeting at the Bombay BP to take a ride out to the Manukau Heads Lighthouse. It’s the first time in a couple of years that I’m going on a group ride and I am so excited to be going. Last one was Paws for Justice in 2018, which was a squizillion motorcycles. (You can see me on my Indian at about 11 – 14 seconds into the video)

    Let’s hope the weather holds!



  6. Judgment is the key issue in the Martin Matthews case

    OPINION: The late detection of Joanne Harrison’s fraud at the Ministry of Transport uncovered in 2016 is a wake-up call to New Zealand’s top public servants about the responsibility they have to safeguard our money.

    By the time the then Secretary of Transport, Martin Matthews, acted to report the fraud, concerns from within the ministry about Harrison’s non-compliance with policies designed to prevent fraud had been repeatedly reported for more than two years.



    • Credit where credit is due.
      Sue Moroney did a bloody good job there exposing the idiot Matthews.

      Matthews was a fool that was probably seduced by Harrison (all under wraps now) so he participated in the destruction of honest peoples careers to protect a fraudster; he ignored the Australian Federal Police (the serious outfit that go after drug dealers in Asia, not giving out traffic tickets or investigating assaults) when they came knocking.

      Matthews is barely fit to be a night cleaner and yet he thought he was a legend in his own lunchroom (possibly enhanced by ‘favours’ from Joanne Harrison) that he was good enough to be Auditor General.
      He was not.

      There is no lower scum that Martin Matthews- pretentious, lazy, cruising wannabe that thought he was good enough to oversee the annual expenditure of more than $80 billion dollars a year by the govt. Our taxes.
      He was not.

      The spinoff investigated well

      Late last year the media filth called Stuff were running a charm offensive for dodgy Matthews.
      Did money or ‘favours’ change hands for this?
      Matthews does nothing to clear the stain from his name.
      What sort of stain that is after spending time with Joanne Harrison we dont need details on!!



    • Quotable quotes: “The most sophisticated adults in the world have signed up to the bonkers idea that children can somehow intuit the answers to humanity’s existential problems, though Lord knows what the grown-ups expect the kids to do — build a better world on Minecraft?”

      I feel sorry for her. She’s a teenager with all the shit that goes on in the head of a teenager.My teenage daughter scares the living fuck out of me with the way her head re-arranges thoughts on occasion. Imagine the added pressure of having the adults in your life push you onto the world stage as a puppet to try and support the narrative of a rich old billionaire who wants to make money off the scared masses? She’ll be believing in her own fame by now and reality is going to come around and bite her really, really fucking hard.



  7. If you have 20 minutes spare here is a great new doco on Eastern Germany after the war on Al Jazeera, it seems to be very fair balanced


    It shows what the East German regime was like – the Stasi etc
    East Germany’s decline after the merger with West Germany
    And the rise of East German Nationalism
    AFD and the moves against muslim immigration
    Long live the AFD!
    Someone even shot a pro muslim immigration promoter in the head!

    I am waiting for part 2.



    • All Jizz – the criminals of Qatar

      Why do you watch their crap?
      Do you want to be misinformed?
      If so, Why?

      All Jizz is a propaganda channel run by the Qatar Govt.
      It is not news.
      It is misinformation.

      All Jizzy-error interfered in the Australian Federal Election 2019 and poured large funds in to discredit the ‘One Nation Party’
      because it is anti immigration – its policy in a democracy; people do not have to vote for them.
      The filth they dont want coming into their country are the type of moozlem filth we see tearing up the streets of Melbourne and running drugs and prostitution in Sydney.
      They had agents in One Nation for years (big money) in order to run a smear campaign against them at election time.

      All Jizz-error, the Qatar Criminals, should be banned in western countries.
      It is a hate station full of anti western rhetoric.

      I wont watch this crap you link to.

      You can watch what you like Dignap.
      I wont censor you but if Al jazzera is the source for any ‘information’ your sources are severely compromised.

      Do I despise the Qataris?
      As do most of their neighbours who are onto them.
      Qatar funded the first $2 billoin of insurency to start the Syrian ‘civil’ war.
      Because they want to put a gas pipeline through Syria to sell their copious gas to europe.
      Syria said no.

      Do I find it horrific that they bribed FIFA to get the 2022 Toe-jammers world cup.
      Do I find it worse that more people have died in building the stadia than will actually play the footy games?
      These ‘guest workers’ are their fellow Moozlems and Qatar treat them like shit. Worse than camels. Dangerous working conditions and ‘living quarters’ of metal containers in the desert.

      Qatar. A nasty evil regime.
      I wont bother with part 1 and certainly wont get excited about a part 2.
      I suppose it does provide employment for Dhimmis and misinformation for those who think they are informed!



    • you say
      ‘Greens are LYING’

      That is the norm.
      Scum are using the green brand (discredited if you are sensible) and are destructive critters that have taken over generally docile organisations such as Greenpeace, Salvation Army, green parties around the world, charities like Oxfam [where Twit Twyford spend years as did Green Pardy Barry Coates] and turned them into vehicles for misinformation and destruction.

      Ever older white guys can be Marxist fools -some of them.



    • Last year in Australia was the hottest and driest on record, with the average annual temperature 1.5 degrees Celsius above the 1960 to 1990 average, according to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology. Temperatures in Australia last month hit 49.9C.

      1960 to 1990, because you know – the planet had no climate before 1960.



      • THE AU BOM is full of shit.
        Lies lies lies

        The current situation is bad enough for a lot of people without media filth and paid public servants (who are they serving) telling lies.

        The warmest temperature is still officially from 2 January 1960 so basically more than 60 years ago.

        50.7 °C (123.3 °F) Oodnadatta, South Australia

        the period 1958 to 1970 was a very warm period in Australia and there were many occasions the smoke came across NZ- as happened last week and in Auckland on Sunday.
        This smoke across NZ from Australian bush fires has happened twice in the 20 years this century.
        In the decade of the 1960s it was far more frequent.



      • We must have all farted at the same time.
        Nevertheless there are consequences.

        First published on April 26, 2018
        The data in the latest Chinese study was collected following the most powerful of North Korea’s six nuclear device tests on Sept. 3, which is believed to have triggered four earthquakes over the following weeks. The yield of the bomb was estimated at more than 100 kilotons of TNT, at least 10 times stronger than anything the North had tested previously. (The bomb the United States dropped on Hiroshima in 1945 had a yield of about 15 kilotons.)

        On Saturday, North Korea announced it will close its nuclear testing facility and suspend nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests – a move welcomed by Trump as “big progress” – and which comes ahead of the planned summit between him and Kim.




  8. The clean up continues. NATO listened to Trump.

    #BREAKING: Minutes ago, two F-35Is of #Israel Air Force just bombed #IRGC-QF/#PMU base at #Bukamal/ #Abukamal close to #Iraq-#Syria border line. The target was a batch of recently transferred rockets & ballistic missiles as well as engineering equipment.


    SYRIA: The Iranian militia group the ‘Imam Ali’ brigade report they were struck by 2 aircraft in al-Bukamal on the Syria/Iraq border.




  9. A girl goes into the doctor’s office for a checkup. As she takes off her blouse, he notices a red ‘V’ on her chest. “How did you get that mark on your chest?” asks the doctor. “Oh, my boyfriend went to Victoria University & he’s so proud of it he never takes off his Victoria sweatshirt, even when we make love,” she replies.

    A couple of days later, another girl comes in for a checkup. As she takes off her blouse, he notices a blue ‘A’ on her chest. “How did you get that mark on your chest?” asks the doctor. “Oh, my boyfriend went to Auckland & he’s so proud of it that he never takes off his Auckland sweatshirt, even when we make love,” she replies.

    A couple of days later, another girl comes in for a checkup. As she takes off her blouse, he notices a green ‘M’ on her chest. “Do you have a boyfriend at Massey?” asks the doctor. “No, but I have a girlfriend at Waikato, Why do you ask?”



  10. “If I’m A Criminal, It’s Open Season”: Atlanta Police To Stop Chasing Criminals

    Chief Shields suggests criminals are already getting away w/o punishment, via the court system.

    “I don’t want to see us cost someone their life in pursuit of an auto theft person or a burglar, when the courts aren’t even going to hold them accountable,” she said today.




  11. Boomers are more sensitive than millennials – study

    Think teenagers are too sensitive? There’s a good chance if you’re a Baby Boomer, you’re even more delicate.
