    • What on earth does she think she is doing? Hugging people is a very small child like activity. Has she never heard of personal space? It’s a f**king disgrace, is that is all she can do? Well yes it is I would say, she did it once and people raved over it so now its all she is good for.. She is supposed to be our prime minister for f**ks sake. STOP it already. It’s totally inappropriate for any person to go around hugging random people let alone a PTPM.

      • I’m fine with her hugging and waving and bobbing and tripping.
        It means that she is not doing anything else, which means the COL are getting less done.
        Do you want them to press through all of their policies?
        Also, I think that more and more people are realizing that is all she is good at, so the gloss is starting to wear off her and the mainstream media that support her. (well I hope so)

        • Fuck you obviously don’t follow politics very well she does nothing full stop, she is there in name and figure only as there is no one else that can match her popularity or has the brains to get rid of her. Seeing School children everyday and kissing ,hugging and wearing a head scarf doesn’t mean your clever, it’s more more like attention seeking.

            Ardern is the best weapon that National has
            Part Time Prime Minister
            Going on trip after trip while the benes live in motels
            I think (hope) more and more people will turn against her.

      • Ardern is a glove puppet controlled by her many minders.

        Every morning she is given a script that sets out her days activities.. i.e what schools to visit, how many kids to hug, what costume to wear, what face to put on, should she tilt her head to the left or right.

        Such decisions to be made.
        Not an original thought in her tiny brain.

    • Urgh, another day. Another hug.
      If she was a man she would be called creepy.
      As a women she is called empathetic.
      The media running these varieties of pictures I just call pathetic.

    Bacon prices hit record high as pig disease continues to spread

    The cost of a cooked breakfast is climbing as a deadly pig disease pushes the price of bacon to a record high.

    The highly-contagious African swine fever (ASF) virus has hit the global pork industry hard, with millions of animals culled in an attempt to contain the incurable disease.

    In New Zealand, where about 60 per cent of pork is imported, the shortage has sent bacon and ham prices soaring.

    • This is why China gave in so easily to Trumps demands last week. Pork is the number one protein source for the Chinese populace. Getting their food sorted is the main priority for any family. Soya bean and other food sources for pigs is the main concern of the Chinese leaders.
      Can you imagine if they had a uprising in China over not having enough food?

      • true that.

        Never forget there is more than one tribe in China and others don’t necessarily like the current lot of leaders.
        An uprising would soon take place if food became a bit short.
        Good for NZ as well. We have food.

      • The last I saw were 160 Million Pigs slaughtered in China and 36 Million in other Asian countries, totalling about 50% of Global Pig herd. The US has about 70 Million Pigs so unable to re supply so the middleman for China after the slaughtered pig meat is consumed is re building their herd and for a Farmer do you slaughter some/ all of a litter when mature for a premium price or grow to replenish his stock??? China will continue to buy alternative proteins especially Lamb & Beef hence current higher local prices and it may be that China could switch some Pork products for Beef or Lamb which is good news for NZ.

      One of the first things he did when he got into power was to start building the autobahns.
      He believed that Germans should be able to buy a car and travel around Germany to enjoy themselves and take holidays.

    They have promised to buy more agricultural goods from the USA in return for traiff cuts by the USA
    Which will upset the chinese small farmers (millions of them)
    But also it means that China will buy less from NZ, Brazil, Canada, Australia etc

He travelled on the trains quite a bit and he said even as the train travelled through some of the smaller towns in Oregon & Washington states he saw a lot of homeless people near the tracks on the out skirts of these towns in their tents etc. So It seems the issue is not confined to California and it’s big cities.

        The USA has been overun by immigrants and this caused unemployment and housing issues among other problems. Stopping the unrestrcted flow of people and making those that do get bring skills, behave and work hard for thier place will pay big results.

  5. Official Iranian Social Media Accounts Suspended as Anti-Government Protesters Call for Action Via Many Of The Same Platforms

    “Regimes like Iran and China are finding that their finger is nowhere near large enough to plug the hole in the dike,” said Bailey. “Electronic signals, like water, will find away around. Does anyone remember the Arab spring? The revolutionary potential of social media hasn’t been fully unlocked yet, but it’s not far off. Iran’s young and restless population might well be the first full test.”

  7. Harry and Meghan can no longer use ‘Royal Highness’ titles
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/entertainment/2020/01/harry-and-meghan-stripped-of-royal-highness-titles.html

    “Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will no longer be allowed to call themselves ‘His Royal Highness’ or ‘Her Royal Highness’.

    Buckingham Palace says the pair also won’t be allowed to formally represent the Queen, and will have pay back money they were given to refurbish their home in the UK, Frogmore Cottage.

    It was revealed earlier this month the pair wanted to step back from their duties as royals and do their own thing, splitting their time between North America – where Meghan is from – and the UK.

    “Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family,” Harry’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth II said on Sunday (NZ time).”

Harry and Meghan want to be independent from the family so the queen has allowed them, like any child leaving home, or resigning from their employment to leave and pay their own way.

  8. The Government has released more details of the family carers overhaul, set to pull the age of edibility down to 16 and bumping up pay rates for some carers by about $2000 a year from April 14.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/content/tvnz/onenews/story/2020/01/17/family-funded-care-overhaul.html

    “If a family carer is funded for the average 27 hours per week on the new $20.50 minimum, this change represents a 8.47 per cent pay rise above the minimum wage, or about $2,200 more than they would have got,” Ms Salesa said. “For family carers funded for 40 hours per week, these reforms mean at least $3,328 more per year.”

    The new reform is set to expand carer eligibility to spouses and partners, expand carer eligibility to 16-18 year old family members, expand client eligibility to include under 18 year olds, remove the current requirement for an employment relationship to exist between a disabled person and their resident family member and lift wages.”

    A contingent of the party’s MPs are heading to the Asian nation on Sunday, including leader Simon Bridges, defence spokesperson Mark Mitchell, foreign spokesperson Gerry Brownlee and Filipino-born list MP Paulo Garcia.

    They are planning to meet with Kiwis living and running businesses in the Philippines, Manila Mayor Francisco Moreno Domagoso, political leaders including Vice President Leni Robredo, and boxing legend Pacquiao.

    Garcia entered Parliament when Nuk Korako retired last year. In his maiden speech to Parliament, Garcia emphasised his Filipino and Catholic background.

    “Whatever laws we might pass in this Chamber, the pro-life voice must no longer be despised and discounted as offensive,” he said. “Preachers of tolerance and inclusion must no longer seek to silence and condemn those with opinions that make them uncomfortable but are nevertheless opinions based on another person’s own beliefs and values systems.”

    “Nearly 50 people are known to have been infected and so far involve only individuals who have travelled to or live in Wuhan, but the World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned that a wider outbreak is possible.

    Many of China’s 1.4 billion people will be travelling abroad during the Lunar New Year holidays next week, raising concerns about the disease spreading to other countries.”

    • No, they won’t be travelling abroad during the Lunar New Year. In China the culture is very much about honoring and valuing family bonds. The typical Chinese will be spending Lunar New Year with their families. In many cases (if they are migrants to the big cities like Beijing) this will mean going back to the villages/small centres where their parents or grandparents live….. but I certainly wouldn’t expect a huge outflow of Chinese to foreign countries.

      The writer of the article doesn’t know shit about China.

  17. Seems like a paid M’Carthyism. and to control & stop free speech.

    …. how to “lead healthy conversations” on racism, microaggressions, and how to deal with those peers who commit infractions. ….

    ….. If a fellow student says to another “Stop making everything a race issue,” that’s considered a microaggression and is a reason for reporting under this new plan.
    If a student says “Why are you searching for things to be offended about?” That’s considered “not okay,” and that peer must be punished.
    The question “Where are you really from?” is apparently out of bounds, and other geographical infractions like “I don’t want to hear about your holiday to South Africa. It’s nowhere near where I’m from” is a reason to call out a kid for being racist. ….
    ….Students complained about the microaggression of “Being compared to black celebrities that I look nothing like,” …..

    …. University of Sheffield claims that they are just “opening up a conversation” by paying students “to help their peers understand racism [micro-aggression] and its impact.”
    .
    ….. Call-out culture, snitch culture, and the reframing of the conversation around how to control our thoughts does not alleviate racism; it buries it where it can fester.

    https://www.thepostmillennial.com/snitches-get-riches-university-rewards-student-callouts-with-cash/

    So “islam is right about woman”, “white is ok” as they continue on now a paid witch hunt to root out all these bad forms.

    Seymour himself joined the conversation to confirm the pamphlet is real.
    “You guys are going to lose your proverbial when you see the accompanying video,” he wrote. “It’s really very simple, I value the people I represent, and send a variety of cards and messages throughout the year to show it. At the moment it is Chinese [new year].”

    The Epsom MP told Newshub the photo is real too.

    “Some fantastic friends actually brought the instrument in and they set it up and tried to teach me how to play it. I think it was about as successful as playing guitar, but we had some good fun.”
    He also plays the instrument in the video, which is currently circulating on Chinese social media app WeChat, but says the music has been clearly overdubbed.

  19. Another one! It seems there is an unlicensed firearm incident nearly every day recently. How many is that since the COL demanded licensed firearm holders handed in many of their firearms after 15 March?

    Police confirmed that officers responded to a firearms incident around 1pm on Sunday on Gloucester Street, near the local McDonald’s and shopping centre.

    Hawke’s Bay Today reports that a gang member allegedly involved in the altercation has been located with injuries above his eye. Police have since confirmed that one person is injured and has been taken to hospital.

    • Russia, for all its considerable faults, is a bastion against cultural dilution and the excesses of the Western left.

      Personally I dont buy into the left’s demonizing of them.

  20. One arm of God’s ministry has solved the problem of spare pews & empty collection plates:

    ……”everyone in the hamlet had to repent their sins or die. Once at the church, the woman, her children and a female neighbour were beaten into repenting. If they didn’t do so convincingly, lay preachers holding cudgels, machetes and Bibles would lay into them”….

    ……”They found 14 bound, beaten townspeople in the church building, and a ritually sacrificed goat along with machetes and 10 lay preachers.”…….

    • Hallelujah brother nasska!!!

      I take it they molested those wicked children?

      This should (at last) give Simon a few original policy ideas for 2020. If the New Conservatives don’t beat him to it.

      • The children were likely their first consideration Brother Kea.

        The little ones would have tasted God’s love…….or God’s penis……or something like that!

        • The New Testament does not say anything about priests and clergy being necessary to gain a connection with god.

          It’s just a bunch of child molesters gaining access to kids.

  21. Prince Harry, Meghan Markle ‘cheapening’ the royal family – Thomas Markle
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/entertainment/2020/01/prince-harry-meghan-markle-cheapening-the-royal-family-thomas-markle.html

    Meghan Markle’s estranged father has accused Prince Harry and his daughter of “cheapening” the monarchy in their bid to “carve a progressive new role” as financially independent royals.

    Thomas Markle, 75, has revealed his thoughts on the Megxit controversy in an upcoming Channel 5 documentary, Thomas Markle: My Story.

    “They are turning [the royal family] into a Walmart with a crown on,” Markle said.

    “When they got married they took on an obligation, and the obligation is to be part of the royals and to represent the royals… it would be foolish for them not to. This is one of the greatest long-living institutions ever. They are destroying it, they are cheapening it, making it shabby… they shouldn’t be doing this.”

    “It’s disappointing because she actually got every girl’s dream.”

    The retired Hollywood lighting director also spoke of the couple’s refurbished family home, Frogmore Cottage, saying it’s “embarrassing” that the US$3 million, 26-room home “isn’t enough for them”.

  23. ‘We made a mistake’ – National Archives apologises for blurring images of anti-Trump signs
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/world/we-made-mistake-national-archives-apologises-blurring-images-anti-trump-signs

    “Signs that referred to women’s private parts, which also were widespread during the march, which was held shortly after Donald Trump took office, also were altered.

    The archives says it will immediately begin a “thorough review” of its policies and procedures for exhibits “so that this does not happen again.”

    The American Civil Liberties Union called on the archives to issue a more detailed, explanation.

    “Apologising is not enough,” Louise Melling, the organisation’s deputy legal director, said in a statement.

    “The National Archives must explain to the public why it took the Orwellian step of trying to rewrite history and erasing women’s bodies from it, as well as who ordered it.”

  24. David Seymour says people are going to lose the “proverbial” when they see his Chinese New Year video.

    The ACT Party leader’s been distributing a pamphlet wishing a ‘new year’s greetings’ to members of the Chinese community, complete with a photo of Seymour wearing Chinese-style clothes and playing a traditional Chinese instrument, the guzheng.
