    • People of all faiths and backgrounds come together in a common condemnation of this narcissistic fake.

      Do you recall the scathing article, by a muslim woman, about Ardern playing dress up with a headscarf?

      • This is actually a big deal and needs to be followed up.

        The survivors don’t want this and its culturally offensive.

        But Ardern is promoting it globally for personal gain. This can’t be ignored.

        • They are going to get a bronze statue of Comrade Cindy and baby if they want it or not on the massacre site!
          It has been manufactured off site in secret and will be stood up, the night before. They have to transport it lying down as it’s 20 metre tall, then you have it’s base aswell! They are going to power the light in her up stretched arm and the spotlights on the ground,with a generator powered by unicorn farts till they can hook up the power!

        • You say
          ‘The survivors don’t want this and its culturally offensive.’

          Well I am culturally (and financially) offended by Arderen’s twitterings.
          Time to spread it around.
          Most of these people are bedda off now than the shitholes they came from. (otherwise why would they be here?)

          They can suck up a bit of Ardern’s false narrative.
          Spread the pain.

        She loves playing dress ups.

        She should stick to her job that Peters gifted her.

    • “But it will go ahead with their reluctant blessing.”

      That’s a pity, many of us are sickened by Ardern’s self serving plans too. The Muslim community should be encouraged to do what they do so well and violently protest. See India today and the new citizenship law for details.

    • I suspect many Kiwis agree with the Mulsimes and wish they would move on – to any Middle Eastern/African shithole of their choice were they will feel more comfortable with fellow Burkhaites commodities and culture. Going to the market however may result in experiencing a bomb from a Muslime of a different variety but that’s OK its just part of the local culture. Hope they all have CIGNA becase thats OK as well.

          Not being a fan of SLG is probably what got Brenton Tarrant labelled right wing.

  1. AA sceptical the Government’s Fuel Market Bill will bring prices down
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/02/aa-sceptical-the-government-s-fuel-market-bill-will-bring-prices-down.html

    A proposed plan for NCEA Level 1, could see biology, chemistry, physics and earth and space science absorbed into one generic subject.

    The ministry says it will offer students a broader view of the subject, with room to specialise in later years, while the suggestion has sparked outrage amongst science teachers.

    Some teachers say the change would be bad for science, potentially slashing the number of future graduates.

      No, the number of future graduates will not change. The ‘universities’ will simply change their preaching teaching to mirror what the kids learn are indoctrinated with at their ‘schools’ and everything will be hunky dory.

      It’s important to remember that in today’s world we have moved on from that outdated colonial concept that facts have any meaning.

    • Cold on the heels of putting Tramping at the same level as Physics for NCEA.

      “Some subjects like English, maths and science are a lot harder mentally to understand,” she says, after a lesson that included the equation for splitting the atom and having to explain why the energy lost in an atomic explosion is equivalent to the increase in mass.

      But in our system the intellectual rigour of those subjects is not given greater value. “Demonstrate understanding of atomic and nuclear physics” is worth 3 credits at Level 2 of the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA). “Experience day tramps” is worth exactly the same.

      David Seymour is right. Education is failing New Zealand and where we once had ourselves marketing and exporting education; we’re now falling so far behind the average in the Asia Pacific region that it’s becoming embarrassing . We need to get the woke out of education and get back to learning.

    • Might as well downgrade Science education at High School, because the younger kids coming through aren’t exactly being grounded in the subject (or any other for that matter).

      Our school combines Food tech, Science/bio tech, mixed materials, Fabric and digital tech, Visual Art, Performing Arts and some kind of health subject with a stupid acronym as modules in one Technology subject and kids get one day a week for two weeks at each rotation.

      The emphasis seems to be on working in groups (teamwork=groupthink, exactly what you don’t want in Science).
      Learners learn rather than teachers teach – except neither does either.

      In the first few weeks of the term we have pissed around with Art Deco and a marae visit.
      When the questionnaire came home asking if we approved of homework we said no politely.

      I now regard school as an increasingly expensive and moderately reliable babysitting service (teacher only day this month as well) while I work, and have a comprehensive education programme at home.
      I certainly don’t need homework getting in the way of my child’s education.

  3. Meanwhile, as our PTPM is over there annoying Scomo, he’s busy leading his country. He’s bypassed the WHO who won’t declare a global pandemic, and is moving ahead, raising Australia’s response levels. That’s what leaders do. If the shit hits the fan here, we’re in the hands of Ardern, David Clark and JAG. Doesn’t fill one with great confidence.

      3 Decriminalisation of low level offenses, in particular driving and licencing offences, and offer pathways out of the justice system and into community support programmes

    “That’ll show ‘em!”

    “Yes, yes” exclaimed the Maori elites & apologists in unison as they rubbed their greedy little hands together.

      • While far from garuanteed to happen, it has been noted in terms of sober numbers;
        Spanish flu had a similar rate of fatality as Cov19.
        If we extrapolate the amount of dead per population for the 1918-1919 ship borne virus, the toll in NZ in 2020 would be 38,000 deaths.
        Crude modelling, but does show in a small way why business minded governments are taking it seriously overseas – even at the risk of much greater (and 100% CERTAIN) economic impacts.

        The Chinese communist party isn’t thinking about the next election cycle,
        They are thinking the next hundred years.
        This is why social harmony, economic advance and repression are their primary tools. Not public mandate or any moral or democratic grounds.
        So I find the degree to which they have shut down cities and industry/trade far from Wuhan, and for quite some time now, means that the very very realist/pragmatist heads that run the CCP have decided that this is not something that is ‘just a cold’ and ‘all it needs is vaporub’.
        CCP is not doing this for “Feelz”, or based on any concerns like western governments act upon.
        If they can imprison hundreds of thousands of Muslims in Xinjiang they really don’t care hugely for international opinion either. {isn’t that refreshing?}.
        To me, as a student of history and China especially, I see this repression and pain is a measured gamble in the interests of long term stability for the CCP.

        Next stat – which means our first world heath system (so-called) might not be able to deal with large numbers of infected any better than Uganda…….I hear we only have about 300 ICU beds as nationwide capacity.

        What this all means – time will tell.

        • The Three Gorges Damn was a revelation to a young mind learning about politics and the powers of the State. The idea that a government could look ahead and build infrastructure for the good of the country with an multi-generational view of what that benefit entailed, over the wishes of a segment of its population was an new one to me.

          It doesn’t fit well with my desire to have strong property rights though, but there must also be a balance. You don’t want one person holding up a new power plant. You also don’t want to buy-back Auckland to build a new port.

          • Three Gorges Dam vs Ihumatao.
            The amount of truly astounding archaeological sties lost forever is saddening. There was a rush of looting, my interest was particularily in the ancient dynasty sites (Bronze Age). My last trip to China {2017} was the first time (and probably last time) I ever took any antiquities directly through PRC customs, and that was sourced from Chongqing city on the Yangstze.
            There were very minor and cheap pieces I purchased late in the trip. It was hard to find genuine ancient items in the markets I visited, and when I did – it was hard to find people willing to sell then to foreigners, given the risk to themselves. On the flip side I also saw a few really fantastic pieces that I didn’t even waste the time asking about a price for.
            So I took out a few bronze arrow heads and a fragment of a bronze vessel which came from a village which is now flooded by the Dam.
            I was sweating going through customs, just like the guy in Midnight Express, simply from guilty conscience. A bit of a laugh now, but of course this is the one time the airport police made me unpack my luggage after Xray and checked out batteries and such.
            The vessel fragment is probably Eastern Zhou and eggshell thin highly accomplished/technical casting with what is called a leiwen {spiral} pattern as surface decoration. The arrowheads are are of a style prevalent around 300-400BC. May well be from the same tomb or general site as the vessel. And this is just junky stuff in the scheme of what was looted or lost.

            So puts the empty spot next to the Stone fields into perspective as far as ‘heritage’ which holds up houses.

            The three Gorges – over a million people forced relocate, sites from paleolithic to historic temples submerged.
            When the Chinese want to do something/construct something, they get on and do it.
            For better or worse.

That I know from personal, family experience as well as a friends’ husband who died because of that. Fortunately my family member that was directly afflicted was travelling through Thailand when things packed up and they took him in and fixed it and advised him of the manufacturer recommendations. He then purchased the required medicine here himself.

          Walk into anybody but your registered GP and you’re paying $120 for a 15 minute consultation with a 3 hour wait time (In Auckland, usually). Moreover, reading your average Kiwis experience with the more serious illnesses, you don’t want to be here when things go wrong.

I’m sure though that like the people who have horrible experiences, there are people who have fantastic experiences. But when healthcare is taxpayer funded – all should have the same level of care or not have it taxpayer funded and let us go seek our own options.

    A Kiwi fraudster who falsely claimed to be a Tahitian prince and stole more than $16 million in public money in Australia has been sent back to New Zealand.

    In 2013, Joel Morehu-Barlow was jailed for 14 years for pocketing A$16.69m (NZ$17.4m) from his employer, Queensland Health, between 2007 and 2011.

    • The prison time for fraud as a basis for the amounts stolen, by whatever means, always seems far too low for me.
      Even if he spent, say, 7 years in jail – that is $2.4million per year.

      So steal, cheat, defraud and embezzle at will!
      You will never need to pay is ALL back.
      You might even get home detention.
      And if you hide some % of it for later use, and spend the rest before caught – even at the time spent in prison -as time for salary -you are in the league of the top executives and rich listers in your country!

      …Also, by my maths (which is not the best) I don’t think that 14 years in prison, when you enter in 2013, means a release date of 2020~!
      It seems the courts and the justice system is just as bad at addition in Australia as it is in NZ.

  9. Well worth the read, as it will also bring a deeper understanding of NZ politics!, particularly the “under currents” of bureacrats, protesters, police, indigenous, climate change, etc… and how they are all leveraged, expanded, and used.

    Although this is Canadian. it exposes the connections in Canadian politics, and explains Trudeau’s success, the rail stoppages, the social justice smearing tactics, and the people behind it.

    “United we will roll” is a counter fight, like French yellow vests, but there is a lot of well organized protesters, with academia, media & politicians that messed them up, and is proving to be a deadly serious problem.

    It is now phased over to “stop the rail” “stop the oil pipe line” etc. like stop our oil & gas exploration. Any where that they can find a chink, they lever into.

    The parallels will make it much more easier to learn how to oppose these systems and agendas.

    Labour MP Willie Jackson has defended his Government’s willingness to put up petrol taxes, while at the same time promising new legislation to bring the cost of fuel down.

    The new Fuel Market Bill aims to introduce more competition into the industry, particularly at the wholesale end. The Government predicts by the end of the year, motorists could be saving up to 30c a litre at the pump.

    • “As you heard our wonderful Prime Minister a few months ago say, these big companies have been fleecing – fleecing – the average person in this country. Now, we’re going to give it a crack.”

      It’s a tiny pinhead for those liars in Labour to dance on, isn’t it?

      24% of the petrol price is what goes to the petrol companies. That is their operating margin, out of which they pay all their infrastructure, salaries, etc.
      50% of the petrol price is what the government takes in tax. They have a tax that is taxed incorporated into that.

      And the fucking hypocrites talk about “fleecing” people.

      • The most astonishing about all this is they apparently think we plebs are unaware of the amount of tax involved. Petrol companies have to make a profit like everyone else. Just another CoL brain-fart.

  12. Heath Row’s new runway is stopped by signing up to the Paris Agreement.
    Sadly the UK may have Brexited and that is good, but not out of other supposed benign agreements.

    The court’s ruling is the first major ruling in the world to be based on the Paris climate agreement and may have an impact both in the UK and around the globe by inspiring challenges against other high-carbon projects.
    .
    Plan B argued that the Paris agreement target, which the government had ratified, was an essential part of government climate policy and that ministers had failed to assess how a third runway could be consistent with the Paris target of keeping global temperature rise as close to 1.5C as possible.
    .
    ….. a court has confirmed that the Paris agreement temperature goal has binding effect. This goal was based on overwhelming evidence about the catastrophic risk of exceeding 1.5C of warming.
    Yet some have argued that the goal is aspirational only, leaving governments free to ignore it in practice.”

    “Government needs to put climate targets at the heart all big decisions, or risk missing their own net zero objectives with devastating consequences for climate and stability. I am relieved this is finally recognised in law.”
    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/feb/27/heathrow-third-runway-ruled-illegal-over-climate-change

    It would seem that Greta Thunberg is on a win, in getting governments, one way or another to agree with Extinction Rebellion. 🙁

    So it would seem an unbinding agreement can be very costly, certainly in time delays, and ongoing court cases.

    What other agreements & principles has NZ signed up to that is supposedly “non binding”? 🙁

    Look at my Canadian links above, in showing how this in parallel agendas is slipped past the general public.

      This ruling smacks of the Courts “making up their own rules” to suit the situation like they did with the Brexit issue. I agree with those that said it is an aspirational goal. I think if it was anything else other than aspirational, James Shaw would have all over it pushing “our legal obligations” down our throats.

      Having said that the UK Government is well and truly into the AGW stuff, if for no other reason than so many of their backers are making too much money from the scam.

      BTW. Thanks for the links above. Great reading.

      • Thanks Ross12.
        The exposing of the Canadian pipe line, rail blockade, etc., protesters, are so similar to what is being put into practice, through the decades, at so many levels, that reach from top to bottom, like the “doctrinal ideologist judges” in the UK.

        ‘Aspirational’ would be flipped over if “emergency” about the climate can be activated, so it would notch up another win for Greta. 🙁 as then so called global precedents can be used, to ratchet up another set of local runaway precedents.

      • Islam is a race, like Right-Wing is a race.
        It is not a race of course, but when the believers in diversity paradoxically think all members in a group have the same values and thoughts, then they stereotype belief against a race.
        Similar to the racism of low expectations, which Lefties see as a virtue.

        Left think must be something like this;
        Islam=race. Will be some type of brown.
        Right wing= race. White, probably male. Might be a boomer.
        Under achiever/represented in negative statisitics=race. Will also be brown. Not nessacarily Muslim, but certainly oppressed..
        White= race. Any one with this skin shade has privilege regardless of origin or socio-economic group. Top of the pyramid of oppression. Not on the victim spectrum.
        Asian= white adjacent race. Not a victim class, although can suffer racism {and naturally only white people are ever racist}.

          • I wouldn’t personally.
            If you are a leftie however, the racism of low expectations means that you can accept that followers of Islam are more likely to be homophobic, misogynist, intolerant of others – and yet welcome it as another type of quaint cultural diversity.
            All cultures are equal {says the lefty}.
            ….Except for Western or Anglo-Saxon cultures, which brought misery to native peoples the world over and have no redeeming features.

            Holding mutually opposed views at the same time is no problem.
            i.e. If someone Pale Made and Stale causes offense with words, Oh Boy! They will shriek and be ready with tar and feathers. Stoning a woman to death? Well, that’s just their culture.

            Personally I would see the followers of Islam as another bell curve in terms of emotional intelligence, logic, morals. I can’t assume anything about a Muslim as an individual.
            My ‘racism{sic} of low expectations’ is not out of any admiration or making excuses for any stereotype. It is just that stereotypes are not illogical or bad as such.
            I don’t trust a pit bull running free on the footpath as much as I might a golden retriever. I am more wary of one than the other. Nothing against the pit bull, but I would prefer they weren’t in the suburbs or near child care centres.
            I don’t have any hatred for Muslims. I might even pity those who are born as Muslim, because they don’t have much choice, and leaving Islam is designed to be hard. Ostracised at best. Death for apostacy at worse.
            In my reflective moments, and my personal experience, they are people like any other at an individual level – the ‘moderates’/cultural Muslims that is.
            They can be professors, doctors, proffesionals, great thinkers or artists and any thing they want to be.
            But that would be in spite of Islam, not because of it.

            Regardless of any noble principle accepting of our shared humanity, just opening the borders to a flood of humanity from partially developed and violent Islamic nations is not the best sort of immigration.
            In this way, when it comes to Islam, getting the ‘right’ sort of immigrants is many times more important than normal.
            Assuming you want any at all……and like I said, personally, not having any pit bulls in the suburbs sounds just fine with me.

    • Their arrogance should be named & shamed.

      How is the general public expected to trust any overseas student, the ones who are legally here, and the ones that circumvent these quarantine laws.
      Yet those academics would be the first to trample on anyone who they consider to be racist, in protecting themselves and their family and community from this virus, whilst they are the ones who will increase the risk.

      Many jobs put on leave like in the Logging Industry, and probably jobs lost.
      They will have to live and survive, and with that, life goes on, and all the better if this Covid-19 can be kept at bay, or as long as possible.
      Those academics believe they are above all others.

      They need to be routinely, anally swabbed to test & confirm that they are not CoVid-19 carriers.
      Anal swabs or stools has been found to have CoVid-19 !

      One would also wonder as in some cases the kidney system collapses, so any leakage there should be tested.
      Then not only for some the long incubation, but others can become carriers or one can become reinfected.
      One of the reasons why hand washing regime is being pushed

      These university people seem to want to inflict Darwinism on others, but as seen in the Canadian rail blockade link; they are not too far off eating their own. 🙂

  17. Turns out the article has nothing to do with “white supremacists and Donald Trump supporters” nor the posting of a certain manifesto by Tarrant, but rather…

    Tne new site owner “Watkins refused to take the site offline, prompting Brennan to call him senile. Watkins laid a complaint of cyber libel – which carries a potential jail sentence of up to 12 years.”

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/02/warrant-issued-for-8chan-founder-s-arrest.html

    Fredrick Brennan, who has lived in the Asian nation since moving there in 2014 for work, has fled back to his native United States after a court issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of ‘cyber libel’ last week, Vice News reports.

    Last year Brennan called for the uncensored forum to be taken offline after it became a popular place for white supremacists to hang out, and even post their hateful manifestos before going on murderous rampages – a trend started by the alleged Christchurch gunman.

    Brennan also took issue with the site’s growing QAnon community – a group of hardcore Donald Trump supporters who believe in a wide range of bizarre conspiracy theories. The FBI has deemed the QAnon group a domestic terror threat.

    Watkins refused to take the site offline, prompting Brennan to call him senile. Watkins laid a complaint of cyber libel – which carries a potential jail sentence of up to 12 years.

    The Mongrel Mob’s spokesperson is accusing National leader Simon Bridges of trying to “advance his political rhetoric” by blasting gang culture at a public meeting in Tauranga.

    Louise Hutchinson, the Waikato Mongrel Mob’s public relations representative, is speaking out against the Opposition leader after the pair clashed at the meeting on Thursday.

    “Simon is just using it to advance his political rhetoric and we want to go there and call that out because it’s totally unfair,” Hutchinson told Newshub.

      It has been suggest that the number of Iranian cases has been misrepresented (under reported).
      This is not long after the Ïranian health minister, sweating profusely from what was apparently effects of the virus, stood next to an Iranian Government spokesman who said: “the best medicine to cure the coronavirus is trusting each other and trusting the medical system”.

    The Prime Minister said Australia is “well within its rights to deport individuals who break your laws” and that New Zealand “does the same”.

    But she said New Zealand has a simple request for Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison: “Send back kiwis, genuine kiwis – do not deport your people, and your problems.”

    Morrison said during the press conference that Australia still has no intention of changing the policy, despite discussing it with Ardern.

    Despite being the worst mass shooting in Wisconsin’s history, the incident has largely disappeared from headlines and discussion, with online outrage noticeably dampened in comparison with other mass shootings.

    “I hope it’s clear to everyone that if political capital can’t be made off a tragedy it will get memoryholed faster than the Jussie Smollett hoax,” commented one Twitter user.

    Earth might have a tiny new moon. On 19 February, astronomers at the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona spotted a dim object moving quickly across the sky. Over the next few days, researchers at six more observatories around the world watched the object, designated 2020 CD3, and calculated its orbit, confirming that it has been gravitationally bound to Earth for about three years.

  24. ACT looking for candidates? Would you become an ACT candidate?
    Received this email from ACT.

    “At this year’s election, we want to stand strong candidates in as many electorates as we possibly can.
    We have momentum”

    Will you make the difference?
    ~~~~~

    ⬇️
    We are grateful for the tens of thousands of New Zealanders standing with ACT, but we need high-quality candidates to take one more step and stand for ACT.

    Joining, donating, and volunteering are all essential and invaluable. However, one of the most frequent questions I get asked is “who is standing for ACT in my community?”

    At this year’s election, we want to stand strong candidates in as many electorates as we possibly can.

    We have momentum

    Public polling shows that ACT is on the verge of securing three MPs at the election. Private polling done by other political parties is even better, suggesting voters could elect five ACT MPs.

    We are principled and effective

    Over the past two years, ACT has been the only opposition. On proposed hate speech legislation, the rushed firearms law and the flawed Zero Carbon Bill, ACT has been the lone voice of opposition to Labour, the Greens and NZ First.

    We also have a proud history of reforming. ACT is responsible for charter schools, the End of Life Choice Act, three strikes legislation and 90-day trials, just to name a few.

    This is your opportunity

    This year, we need strong local candidates in every part of the country if we are to protect the basic rights and freedoms of New Zealanders. If you are interested in standing for ACT where you live, please email myself (tim.jago@act.org.nz) or Danae Smith (danae.smith@act.org.nz) by 31 March 2020.

    Yours sincerely,

    Tim Jago

    The editor of Otago University’s student magazine has announced party politics are boring and she will not be covering them in the lead up to the election.

    Sinead Gill, new editor of Critic Te Arohi, says politicians have nothing more to offer students than ” a shrivelled pea” and she’s not interested in it.

    She says she’s not eliminating all politics from her reporting.

    “I’m still going to cover issues which affect students but it’s mainly just the party politics [being left out]”

    You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.
