      But something inside him told him that she did.

  3. For those wanting an uplifting and inspirational break from politics and doom, check out the YouTube channel called – Bald and Bankrupt.

    He goes to the most unusual places. His visits to former small towns and villages of the USSR are fascinating.

    It’s all strangely uplifting. Check it out and see.

  4. Grabbed by the balls

    Clearly this lawyer is out of touch with what judges think is ok.

    Sports lawyer says grabbing people by the balls is sexual assault – how out of touch is he? The judge in the Labour Youth Rape Camp trial said it was at the lower end of the scale.

    Oh wait, that’s right – sexual assault – its OK when the political Left do it!

    • When I was in the first fifteen playing Wairoa a guy did that to me in a ruck.
      I was playing centre and was so angry I focused on him and had an opportunity to tackle him.I pushed his head in to the ground as hard as I could and said don’t fuckin do that again.

  7. The bullshit economy is in trouble. People seem apathetic, but I wonder if they will be such good sports when their absurdly over priced house value crumbles to its true market value of around 30%

    Why are productive investments like shares left to market forces, while non productive investments in houses are propped up with welfare and a fake economy?

  8. Why is the media now paying so much attention to NZF? They haven’t really worried at him this much. Options I have are:

    * The NZF scandal is being carefully run to arrange for government funding of political parties.
    * They believe Labour + Greens can win without NZF in the picture.

    What else am I missing?

      • TVNZ is not a source of information.
        If it was on Fair Go it would likely have been bullshit.

        The three events I know of personally in the 1980s that Fairly Gobby ‘reported’ on were gross misrepresentation and bullying.
        They caused undue stress to parties with their lies.
        When Bob Jones punched out a scumbag from TVNZ in the 1980’s that was great day.
        I cant imagine in this post-truth world or Greta’s, SLG’s, and unicorns that they are any closer to the truth.

        Television NZ always has been and always will be a collection of dirtbags.
        Eg in the late 1980s they purchased shitty cheap programming for over a year to build a war chest to knock the independent TV3 off the air when it commenced in Nov 1989.
        They succeeded in 6 months of bankrupting it.
        They stored up $26 million dollars of funds (a lot in 1989) to out-program a private sector operation – using taxpayers money.
        They allowed 2 minutes per day of footage from the Jan 1990 Comm Games per 24 hours for TV3- for a fee.

        I repeat TVNZ is scum.
        Just one leg of media filth in New Zealand.
        Media is your enemy and not here to inform you.

  11. I remember back in mid-2000 in Auckland. Ordinary 91 petrol was about $1 a liter. Looking back at the other data for that time, $US1 = $NZ1.78 and the price of crude oil was about $US30 a barrel.

    Fast forward to today.

    Petrol at the local Z is $2.20 a liter
    Crude oil is back to $30 a liter
    $US1 = $NZ1.57 (The Kiwi is stronger against the $US than in mid-2000)

    Logically, ignoring government taxes that have changed since mid-2000, petrol at the pump in Auckland should be back down to around $1 a liter in a couple of weeks’ time.

    Have I missed something?

  12. Italy to be entirely locked down amid coronavirus outbreak
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/03/italy-to-be-entirely-locked-down-amid-coronavirus-outbreak.html

    The entire nation of Italy is being locked down to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

    Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced on Tuesday morning that all public events would be banned, including sporting events. The likes of theatres, gyms, pools, schools, universities and other places where people may congregate are also being ordered to close.

    Movement for the nation’s 60 million people will only be allowed if it is essential for work or for emergencies. Conte said people should remain indoors, and preferably, in their homes. Public transport will, however, reportedly continue to operate.

  13. Coronavirus: Jacinda Ardern seeks officials’ advice ahead of Christchurch memorial and Pasifika Festival
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/03/coronavirus-jacinda-ardern-seeks-officials-advice-ahead-of-christchurch-memorial-and-pasifika-festival.html

    “I have asked for specific advice from the Ministry of Health and the director-general of health over two large events happening this week just to reassure myself that we’re using all the information we have, and I expect to get that advice today.”

    Newshub asked Ardern if the memorial could potentially be cancelled, and she said “no”.

    “I’ve just highlighted for the director-general that we have two large events in New Zealand this week, and asked again for his advice on managing those events,” the PM said.

  14. ‘Sea of red’: S&P NZX 50 drops by 4 percent
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/03/sea-of-red-nzx-drops-3-86-percent.html

    The S&P NZX 50 dropped by 4 percent on opening on Tuesday morning and at 11am, was down by 4.65 percent.

    The powerful double whammy of coronavirus and tumbling oil prices rocked Wall Street overnight, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropping by 7.78 percent (2,013.45 points) to 23,851.33. The S&P 500 dropped by 7.60 percent (225.81 points) to 2,746.56 and the NASDAQ Composite dropping by 7.29 percent (627.94 points) to 7,950.68.

    In Europe, drops were around 7-to-8 percent overnight, Japan’s Nikkei 225 fell by 5.07 percent and the UK FTSE fell by 7.7 percent. Asia is due to play catch up upon Tuesday’s opening.

    Talking to Reuters, Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at New York-based Spartan Capital Securities said that Monday’s drops were the result of “a lot of fear in the market.”

We can’t fall into the Bernie bubble where everything that we read is an echo chamber view of our own beliefs – not that I think you have Ed, just a cautious warning on my part. Half of my family, who I haven’t disowned quite yet, think that Cindy will get another term. I hope they’re wrong but by now all the smart money is being transferred out of the stock market & New Zealand in case they’re unfortunately right. Doesnt help that we’re split with indecision over ACT and National.

    • At least plastic bags mitigate the risk of the spread of Covid-19 and other bacteria. Not one repeater has thought to put the question to the fuckwits in power if the new cotton bags increase the risk due to multiple usage in public areas. Remember when Cindy made this “captains call” nothing like this was on the horizon. Times have changed quickly, and this question bears more study.

    I hope National raises this issue in Parliament.

      Never make a call based on what lying media filth tell you.
      You will not know the facts.

      Bollocks story there so little truth is released.
      -Start off with – violent male ( white fella)
      -This woman ‘had’ to leave the marriage. More please
      -After 12 years still on a temporary visa and kids on ‘student visas’ – the ones still in NZ
      -Half siblings. Therefore half a story. What is the rest?
      -The lawyer- obviously paid by this woman, if he ever gets paid – lays it on thick that it is ‘unfair’. He is advocating, not presenting unbiased POV !!
      -That is his paid job; then converted by biased truth-side-stepping media as emotional response.
      -Deported young man is 21. did he have a job? What was he doing for last 3 years since school?
      21 year old described as a ‘gentle giant’ Clue in > that usually means mental health problems.

      and a sad sack story then
      Did a big ol’ whinge about the kraut/yank Peter Thiel getting citizenship in NZ. Scott Simpson as Asst Min Immigration. That’s how long ago they have been clinging on.
      It was not a middle of the night ‘dawn raid’

      Even stated there
      “We are currently being evicted out of our house.”
      then> Tenancy tribunal documents show Mr Olivier was ordered to pay his landlords roughly $3300 in rent arrears in 2012 and about $3000 in 2014.

      Clearly they have not established themselves in over 10 years and came here in the GFC when times were tough for all of us.
      Her linked in page is accessible as well. I wont link here. Not that relevant.

      Chuck, don’t go chasing down hard luck stories fired up by the media
      You look like a real amateur.
      You want to suggest law to Notional (after voting for Winston 2.5 yrs ago)
      Accept that media lie ..and lie …and lie.

      A bit of research will take you closer to the truth.
      instead you should ask;
      -Where is the ‘evil white man’? In NZ or back in Africa
      -Why is there no family back in Africa? None whatever? Huh?
      -The mother ‘forgot’ to renew the visa. Maybe, perhaps it was refused. What is the truth?
      -There is bugger all truth telling here and lots of emotive whinging.

      On those grounds, deport.
      Get those scary woman’s eyes out of here.
      They have no basis to be here.
      Tough but true.

  17. This one promise Comrade Ardern will keep unless we have a few principled MPs. All those who vote for this bill think is okay to kill a 38 week unborn baby. This would never pass a binding referendum but MPs are meant to have more of a conscience that you or I.

    “In the UK, abortion is available through to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome. In February the BBC reported that a woman had been offered an abortion at 38-weeks gestation – three days before she gave birth – because her baby had Down syndrome.”

  18. Jacinda Ardern hypes coronavirus business-aid plan as Simon Bridges urges minimum wage bump delay
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/03/jacinda-ardern-hypes-coronavirus-business-aid-plan-as-simon-bridges-urges-minimum-wage-bump-delay.html

    Jacinda Ardern is confident in her soon-to-be announced support package for coronavirus-affected businesses, while Simon Bridges is urging her to delay the scheduled minimum wage bump.

    Opposition leader Simon Bridges said on Tuesday not only does the Government need to move faster on the package, but also needs to seriously consider halting the next minimum wage increase planned for next month.

    “I think it’s very important that the Government halts the minimum wage increase set for 1 April. In an economic crisis, people are better off in work than on the doll,” Bridges told reporters.

    The minimum wage is set to rise to $18.90 in April, up from $17.70, in what will be the second $1.20 increase in a row under the current Government.

    Halting the next bump is supported by ANZ Bank, which said on Monday “scrapping this year’s minimum wage rise seems like a no-brainer” as the global economy struggles under the COVID-19 trade slump.

    “We should have as a main priority keeping people in jobs they have at the current time,” Bridges said. “It’s one thing to lift the minimum wage significantly in good times, but when we’re in or facing a recession, I think that’s a different thing and it needs to be re-visited.”

    The Prime Minister was asked at her Monday post-Cabinet press conference if she is considering delaying the April 1 minimum wage increase, and she said “no”.

    The industry group representing forestry contractors says the crisis facing the sector because of coronavirus is dire, and is getting worse.

    Many of the country’s logging crews are unable to work because of supply chain disruption in China.

    The New Zealand Forest Industry Contractors Association (FICA) said contractors were reaching breaking point in an ever-worsening situation.

    Rapid impacts had been felt over the past month by the industry with the effects of the outbreak of the coronavirus, with many out of work and in serious financial crisis, it said.

          Then came Christchurch and discussions were cancelled and everything became subject to moderation unless you offered up your personal details to the sceptic lefties and DPF wasn’t willing to budge on that.

  22. Jacinda Ardern explains why Kiwis should not avoid public events amid coronavirus COVID-19
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/03/jacinda-ardern-explains-why-kiwis-should-not-avoid-public-events-amid-coronavirus-covid-19.html

    Jacinda Ardern does not want Kiwis to avoid public gatherings amid the COVID-19 outbreak despite asking officials for advice on two events this weekend.

    But the Prime Minister said she did not want the public to be concerned or avoid public gatherings needlessly, because at this stage “we do not have a community outbreak”.

    “When you get to a wider outbreak, that’s when you start seeing changes to things like community events, and so I see that as unlikely, but I did want to ask the question and just get that advice and assurance from our public health team.”

    The Pasifika Festival is happening at Auckland’s Western Springs on Saturday while a memorial for the March 15 Christchurch terror attack is happening on Sunday at Hagley Park.

    Ardern acknowledged that there is a sense of nervousness among Kiwi communities, but she reiterated that New Zealand still only has five confirmed cases of the coronavirus and that there is no need for panic.

        Is she devoid of common sense as it sure looks like it.

        Roll on September when she is voted out of office.

  23. Not a whisper from the instigators of irritable bowel syndrome on this.
    I’m getting fucking sick of not being told the truth.

    This must have been painful for MSM to publish.

    DOJ’S INTERNATIONAL PUSH TO FIGHT ONLINE CHILD EXPLOITATION — Barr is poised to make an announcement today — backed by leaders from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the U.K. — on the Justice Department’s efforts to address child sexual abuse online.

    Today’s DOJ announcement dovetails rather conveniently with Sens. Lindsey Graham and Richard Blumenthal’s incoming bill that could strip tech platforms of their Section 230 legal liability protections if they do not follow Justice Department guidelines to crack down on child exploitation. (Critics have, as MT reported this week, called the proposal a thinly veiled attack on end-to-end encryption.) The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on that bill, the so-called EARN IT Act, next Wednesday.

  24. We must look at current events for what they are.

    At this time, if her heinous thinks it is safe for hoards of inhalers and exhalers to attend a function that she will also attend, the only logical reason would be that Covid – 19 is a hoax.(She knows it, because she wouldn’t dare expose herself to it)

    The systematic destruction of our health system, intentional mismanagement of her own child poverty targets, inexplicable fumbling around housing issues and many other woefully inept attempts at policy reforms are deeply and negatively affecting our well-being.

    This is how you make a country more susceptible to poor health and illness.

    Remove effective hygiene measures from all food outlets by banning plastics.
    Clamp down and demonize industries that provide staple foods that are proven to be of high nutritional value.
    Ban the use and extraction of natural resources that provide life sustaining heat, energy and a strong economy.

    Create an environment most likely to increase the patient/death numbers if a crisis should eventuate.

    Create a crisis.

    Act like there isn’t one. (Shortland Street bit acting).

    The bints who fought over dunny rolls (Not food or milk powder etc) are a prime example as to what socialism looks like.
    It showed people with IQ level’s that cause harm and the eventual demise of a civilization.
    New Zealand is filled to the gunnels, with people like this.

    Perspective is required:

    This was a response to Trumps tweet concerning Covid-19 today.

    Dr, Shiva Ayyadurai. MIT PhD. Inventor of Email.

    As an MIT PhD in Biological Engineering, who studies and does research nearly every day on the immune system, the #coronavirus fear mongering by the Deep State (MSM) will go down in history as one of the biggest frauds to manipulate economies, suppress dissent, and push MANDATED medicine!

  26. “A million dollars is a huge amount of money to garden variety Kiwis” but apparently not so much to the entitled first citizen of the regions.

    Revealed: Shane Jones’ Provincial Growth Fund officials spent more than $1 million on travel in 2019
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/03/revealed-shane-jones-provincial-growth-fund-officials-spent-more-than-1-million-on-travel-in-2019.html

    Newshub can reveal Shane Jones’ Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) officials spent more than $1 million jetting around the country in 2019.

    And after Newshub asked questions, Jones demanded his officials rein it in – all on his first day back at Parliament since he himself earned a stern talking to from the Prime Minister over controversial comments he made about Indians.

    Figures obtained by Newshub show over the course of a year, Provincial Development Unit officials spent $844,63 on flights and a further $187,389 on accommodation and expenses.

    “A million dollars is a huge amount of money to garden variety Kiwis,” the Regional Economic Development Minister told Newshub.

  27. Coronavirus: Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern probed about Treasury not yet predicting recession
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/03/coronavirus-prime-minister-jacinda-ardern-probed-on-lack-of-recession-advice-from-treasury.html

    Opposition leader Simon Bridges asked Jacinda Ardern in Parliament on Tuesday if she has received advice from Treasury on the likelihood of a recession and how the Government should react.

    Bridges asked the Prime Minister if she agreed with ANZ Bank’s chief economist Sharon Zollner who on Monday said the Government should consider postponing the scheduled minimum wage boost in April to ease pressure on employers.

    “At a time when businesses are very nervous, putting this year’s minimum wage rises on hold would support employment and better social outcomes.”

    Ardern said the lowest-paid workers should “not have to pay for the impacts” of COVID-19.

    “Minimum wage has a stimulatory effect – the more [money] that low-income workers have in their pocket, the more they spend which is exactly what the economy needs.”

    ACT leader David Seymour said Labour is “blinded by ideology” on minimum wage.

    • Labour’s been warned about that before and ignored that advice. They want people to be hit by higher rents. It gives them more reason to increase benefits and state welfare, to buy more long-term voters dependent on Labour.

    “Miley Cyrus has cancelled her bushfire relief concert in Melbourne due to fears over the spread of coronavirus.
    The U.S. singer, 27, was scheduled to headline the World Tour Bushfire Relief fundraiser at Lakeside Stadium on March 13.
    She tweeted on Tuesday afternoon (AEST) that she’d been advised not to fly to Australia amid the global health crisis. ”

    Australians shed tears…
    of joy…
    ..and relief

    Interviewed in a Mall,
    Ned said ‘We have suffered enough. This is one window of hope we can see the the sun shine through’
    Kylie said ‘Why would she worry about one more disease; she has so many already’
    Kaboom!

    You’re terrible Muriel!
