  1. And a good morning to you too Ma’am. It appears that the ‘Elderly’ amongst us have yet to rise, but out in the deepest, darkest Waikato (Well, anywhere that is away from the ‘Tron), it is currently a balmy 8 Degrees, so there is hope for Hamilton yet….

    Enjoy your day, and, as always, DLTBGYD

  2. Morning Troopers,

    Well, this was always going to happen. What the fuck were the council thinking. In the large reserve where I walk the dogs, which has multiple access points and car parks, 5 out of the 7 bins have been removed. FFS the driver still has to do the same route. Now people leave shit everywhere, or don’t pick it up in the first place. Had a lot of hope for Wayne Brown, but he’s turning out to be shit brown just like the Ngati Whatua Room rooter Len Brown. One would have thought providing rubbish bins was a pretty fundamental function of the council. But no, they fuck around with gay road crossings and cycle ways to clog the traffic up. We’re counting down the days until we leave this shit hole.

    • The bureaucrats will do anyhting to piss off leaders they don’t like.
      But you know and I’m sure SB can confirm for you, that if you pick up your dogs shit immediately its is still nice and warm so you can slip it into your gloves to keep your hands warm.

      today’s best winter tip.

      Have a warm finger day.

    • What is it with people and their rubbish?
      Is it really so difficult to take it home that rate payers need to run round after them picking up their detritus.
      Seems the world is filling with lazy and entitled whiners.

      • Because I pay rates and dog rego so that my parks and streets are clean. And it’s not just my rubbish – I pick up any rubbish I come across – but I expect to have somewhere put it. I’m not walking around for hours carrying the stuff. And if that makes me a lazy entitled whiner, then so be it.

      • Obviously not a dog owner then Private, most people pay rates and then dog ownership fees which goes between $86 each dog and who knows what??? for a good owner dog, far more if you have had them wander or for barking etc and it is nice to have receptacles to put the dog shit in FFS. Especially if you go to a DOG park. You would think at the very least the councils could do is provide a bin to put the dog shit in. If not why bother picking it up?

        • We all pay councils for “who knows what???”
          Paid a flood protection levy to council for years and now there’s silt in the light fittings.
          Haven’t been in a public library for a couple of decades.
          If you want to keep a dog you need to pick up shit – and take it home.

        • Councils should concentrate on their core obligations including providing rubbish receptacles so you don’t have to carry a bag of shit with you on your dog walk. As there is no place to deposit the shit there will be bags of shit left all over parks, that’s if dog owners even bother any longer to pick up after their pooches.

          Lowest common denominator = making the system work or there is no system.

    • The fundamentals of Council is to look after rubbish, roads, footpaths, parks libraries, cemeteries and ancillary items like Dog Rego.

      Councils go too wide into BS areas
      There are contributing factors-
      -lousy mayors,
      -activist councillors,
      -bringing in pommy CEOs like CHC did recently and that was a disaster (mind you it has been par for the course for a long time at CHC to have lousy CEOs and that one bailed from the failed Birmingham )
      -lousy CEOs generally
      -the loosening up of Council focus by Klarkenfuhrer 20 years ago

      Rubbish is basic and when you give up on that you have surrendered.

      I mentioned on here a month ago Wayne Brown has been a failure .
      I seen there are people lining up to challenge him next year. I am not even sure if he would run for term 2.
      He would be 82 at the end.
      All he has been good for is winding up the media filth.
      Desley Simpson- Deputy mare, and ridden by Peter Goodfellow – has gained more power but is massively incompetent and a 0/10 financial manager.

      I was in London 20 years ago and when I spent the day in town it was a pain. They removed the rubbish bins – basically coz they sent brit army to practice on the people of Northern Ireland so the Irish retaliated with their campaign- hey yin and yang .
      It was annoying . A situation England created by pointing guns at it s own citizens ; who don’t want to be citizens anyway.

      Wayne Brown – dead loss
      Desley Simpson- dead loss
      Auckland council (created by keys and hide and joyce )- dead loss.

      Seems to be the status of Councils in ao tear zooland.
      Wellywood is worse.
      I still think the deforms set of by Michael Bassett is 1989 is the root of the problem.
      Prior to that councils were much more responsive to the community.

  3. have?” asks the barman, to which the man replies “What do the locals drink?”.

    Barman: “Rat”

    Man thinks this is an odd name for a drink, but orders one. “Pint or a half?” asks the barman. Man still unsure whether this sounds appealing plays safe and asks for a half, whereupon the barman reaches under the counter, picks up a squealing brown rat, bites the rat’s head off and puts the rest into a glass.

    Man stares in horror and shrieks “I’m not drinking that!!!”. “Why not?” asks the barman, puzzled; to which the man replies “There’s no head on it…”.

  4. Another self important vaccine pusher dies suddenly – so long, Tom Johnson, you won’t be missed, at least by me – stupid fucking fuck indeed. There is some justice in this world after all.

    Meanwhile, the minister of health is still saying “safe and effective”.

    • ” Johnson died “peacefully and unexpectedly” at his Los Angeles home on Jan. 14 of a cardiac issue…Tom had such a big heart and cared deeply about taking care of others…He was fair, kind, talented, inclusive and funny as hell.”

      Yeah – sounds delightful. Doesn’t come across as caring, fair, kind, or inclusive.
      I’ll leave it to others as to whether he was talented or funny.

  5. Received this by e mail this morning:

    CONCERNS ABOUT LACKLUSTER LUXON BEING REALISED
    by Stuart Veitch
    Some of us had concerns about Luxon even before the last election.
    Having experienced and dumped World Health Organisation (WHO) and
    World Economic Forum (WEF) etc. who’re loaded with socialism/Nazism,
    we were ever hopeful a Luxon led coalition MIGHT be an improvement.
    Our fears grew as we witnessed being duped by another smiling assassin
    and the associated weak-kneed grinners! New Zealand voters have been
    devastatingly misled, and in hindsight it appears subtly and intentionally with
    the reluctance (so far) of these hapless leaders to implement their declared
    vote catch calls. Their inherited social and racial division is not being curbed
    as promised with this doctrine being led by a Luxon love!
    The ‘take over’ of ALL new Zealand’s Health Care structure (and thus it’s populous)
    appears to be acceptable to the now feckless triumvirate. Luxon seems to be
    emulating the disastrous divisive direction of Biden, Ardern, Trudeau, etc.
    It seems conceivable they are connected to the One World Governance
    movement and thus probably generously rewarded by the controlling and
    very powerful pharmaceutical structure per the COVID-19 (still secret)
    Pfizer contract – determined to vaccinate everyone so to comply with their
    enlightened, disruptive human and fiscal control!
    Political Climate Change (an intentional distraction against reality) appears
    to be hindering that political ‘control all’ approach which PM Luxon adamantly supports!
    Luxon says coalition partners’ comments on Waitangi Tribunal are ‘ill-considered’.
    Why can’t Luxon read the room? Therein lies the ‘ill-considered’ answer!!
    Luxon is determined to go against all those voters who elected him when
    social harmony was integral to his campaign? The National Party stands for
    One People – One Nation. Why is Luxon pushing an opposing philosophy?
    Who does Luxon think he is to go directly against both his Party and his electors?
    But even more concerning is why all the other National Party members in the
    House of Parliament elected by and thus representing National Party voters
    (and NZ First and ACT) are not ‘yelling from the roof tops’ against Luxon’s
    ‘ill-considered’ proclamation? Have they been sworn to silence?
    This is diabolical! If this is not corrected; Look Out New Zealand!

    • Absolutely no one – zero, nada -should be surprised that luxon is woke wet and weak.

      Every single action and word has reinforced this.
      His reprimand of Maureen Pugh
      his pretending that he does not know of WEF.

      The Scorpion and the Frog fable manifests in luxon
      The whole triumvirate of luxon, willis and bishop is like this.

      Who the hell thought otherwise.?
      The 38% vote count shows not even four in ten trust them.

      In fact the 2023 election vote of 43.5 % for individual MPs and 38% party vote showed people trusted the MPs more than the party and its ‘leadership’.

    • No surprises there! My friend thinks Luxon is keeping the peace. He is more controlling than that. How many MP’s has he censored and thrown under the bus to make himself look like he’s in control?

  6. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

    …..”NZ Post is opening its biggest processing centre in South Auckland this week, designed to make it whole lot faster to deliver and track your online shopping parcels.”…….

    Everything NZ Post touches turns to shit & this won’t be an exception. Expect lost & misdirected parcels on a scale never experienced before.

    • What a coincidence, I’m sending my wrapped Christmas present to myself, now. I use track ‘n’ trace to plot my holiday’s. Last year my present to myself was lost. Some lucky bugger got a Paddy Gower twistable action figure at my expense though.

  7. Oh yay
    ————-
    A dedicated battery electric vehicle has joined the local ambulance fleet, representing not only a first for New Zealand — but also a first for Australasia.

    Based on an electric Ford E-Transit, the plug-in ambulance was donated to the group by ASB Bank, forming part of the Hato Hone St John organisation’s push to reduce its emissions.
    ——————-

    So why did not Australia get an electric ambulance ?
    Let me think about it for 3 seconds.
    Mmmmmm.

    When it stops dead they can get out the defibrillator and get it another 40 metres !!!

  8. Interesting piece from the UK on EV’s. Not looking good in the EU.

    https://facts4eu.org/news/2024_apr_electric_vehicles

    Part of a comment by NH

    “The EU has scored a hat trick of home goals when it coms to European Vehicle Regulations and unfortunately the UK has not yet moved away from EU regulations. The first home goal followed the Kyoto Protocol Climate Change Agreement in 1998. The rest of the world invested in cleaner petrol and hybrid engines but the German Car companies pushed the EU to promote diesel vehicles which the then UK labour agreement agreed to. The compensation claims are still being submitted for this fiasco.
    .
    The second home goal was when the EU forced car manufacturers to meet unrealistic emission levels for their fleet of cars. The only way they could achieve these targets was to buy carbon credits from their competitors, mainly Tesla. This is where Tesla’s early profits came from, they received between $1.5 Billion and $1.8 Billion a year for several years from their competitors. This did not reduce emissions in the slightest but it helped Tesla to eclipse the whole of the European Car industry in a few years.
    .
    The third home goal was when the EU decided to phase out petrol cars by 2035. This was a gift to China ! The EU had a strong technical lead in combustion car technology which China would have been unable to catch up with. China had and still has a very strong lead in EV technology, mainly EV battery technology, which the EU vehicle manufacturers will struggle to catch up with. EU vehicle policies strongly favour China. “

    • Man that cracked me up when the Diesel was pushed
      Was following it in the UK
      Completely stupid
      Making 1300 cc type runabouts running on diesel when most journeys are less than 6 km
      Esp in UK congested cities.
      Duh

      Of course the Krauts had to honour their lad, Rudolf Christian Karl Diesel.
      Although not treated well in 1913.

      I also thought it was pretty cool the Krauts tricked the ever sneaky yanks over the Volkswagen emissions
      They got caught and paid heavily –another example of the yanks punishing others while being as crooked as all hell themselves
      eg Massive fine to Deutschbank for the crooked yankee arse-about-face valuations of the debt that led to the GFC

      The other 2 factors are completely avoidable scenarios
      Was it sabotage ?
      We see so much of it now.

    • From the Tax Payer’s Union latest email :

      ” The team have just told me that almost 7,000 of our supporters responded to Jordan’s email the other day, and dropped a note to Melissa Lee. WOW!

      Since the email, I’ve spoken to someone in the Government familiar with the deliberations on how to ‘help’ the media. Based on the conversation, I am becoming more confident that the Government will rule out direct (i.e. cash) bailouts or subsidies, but that they are ‘looking at other options’.

      That’s political speak for a fudge. They are looking for an option that doesn’t rile up the public (or make the government finances, even worse) but will keep the media players happy….. “

      • Just heard him on the news Liz. He said Lee was underperforming and the media situation has become more complicated than when the portfolio was given to her.
        I think Melissa must said it is not Government’s role to help or bailout a commercial enterprise (ie Newshub) and the media industry has to sort itself, with maybe some adjustments to regulations.
        Luxon himself said when Newshub made their announcement that the industry needed to innovate, but now he has buckled.
        Also he seems to be wanting to come across as the tough guy, so maybe the drums have been beating about him —the insecure bully had to throw someone under the bus , to put up a front for himself.
        I actually think he is worse than Ardern and yes he should be in the Labour Party.

        • teevee three has lost money every year for at least 15 years straight.
          Even when they got $20 million a year from NZ on Air to make shows with jono and ben and gormless guy Williams they still lost money so BIIIIG losses in truth.

          It is simply unviable.

          luxon is a real cunt
          He operates and dances to the media scum rather than the people who voted for him;
          Traitor.

  9. Investigation finds source of rat foot found in toddler’s mouth when eating Pak’n Save precooked garlic bread

    The mum of two called her local Pak’nSave immediately with her complaint spurring a nationwide recall of the foil-wrapped garlic bread.

    But the investigation found the “home was the most likely source” of the foot as forensic investigations found the foot was raw. The garlic bread had been cooked twice before it was served to the toddler – once by the bakery and again in the home.

    VICTORY ‼️

    Erika & Coco Flash announced this afternoon they’ve cancelled their future Rainbow Storytime tour across New Zealand. What a shame! 😜

    First one bites the dust…and there’ll be more wins to come on this front.

    This makes our protest in Gisborne all worthwhile.

    Thank you to everyone who continues to stand with us, as we protect the innocence of our Kiwi Kids.

  11. I’m just wondering if others have seen the irony with the Greens ‘member’, Lawrence Xu-Nan from Chynaa joining the Gweens when apparently, according to the Gweenies..Chynaa are huge (bigly) CO2 producers.

    Least we forget about sourdough Chole, who happened to live in Papua New Guinea whilst whining about “colonialism” and anti mining”

    Hmmmmm, the champagne socialists have an ironic since of humour

      As an aside, the Ten Commandments involved 313 words & the Magna Carta was knocked out with 3500. Why the fuck does everything on You Tube take 18,000?

      “they have been spruiking, marketing the product to the public so are personally responsible…”
