  1. We’ve had plenty of news articles of the NZ Police being inactive in solving certain crimes, even when the victim has provided the police with more than need.

    I have theorised for several years now that the Police are only motivated by two types of activity. The first is for pecuniary interests like speeding fines and similar (pleasing their masters, the government), and the second is for what the press deems important, otherwise known as public relations (PR).

    Here we have a story promoted by the press before the police “solved” it and now after. Note: they “solved” it due to a tip-off. I’m glad this has been resolved but had it been anyone else, the police would have ignored it.

    Stolen scorched almonds found after police execute search warrant

  2. So our once friendly neighborhood cop is no more.

    A community-minded contractor who dug the mass grave for victims of the mosque shootings for free says police went “way over the top” in raiding his house to seize his 11 firearms.

    The colourful figure – who asked not to be named for security reasons but whose record of helping out people in the community and raising money is known to have endeared him to many – said about 30 police raided his west Christchurch block on April 2 about 5pm while he was still at work.

    Some were Armed Offenders Squad members and others were in ordinary police uniform. A specialist search squad searched his house, outbuildings and a granny flat housing his 80-year-old mother.

    Went through his 80 year old mothers undies drawer. We wonder what gets these guys rocks off.

    • They were obviously acting on a tip off from some scrote who had a grudge against him. Was it because he dug the grave for the Moslems and did it for nothing.
      CHCH is a hot bed of feral white and black scum.
      This just lowers plod in the publics eyes.

        • Exactly, the police are meant to be independent from political influence. Bush is being influenced/directed into the liberal push by the COL and sending out “SWAT” teams to confront law abiding citizens. The aggrieved men in the article Viking attached were long time firearm license owners, one since 1982, and were legally issued by the police. No crime had been committed by these men, and yet multiple vehicles of armed police swarm menacingly onto their property and are OTT in the way they approach their duties. The Swat team are armed to their back teeth and aggressive to the non-threatening individuals and their families. The cops couldn’t wait to play it like they do in the movies, all ‘gun-ho’. What a rush eh! The power has gone to their heads.

      • It’s not the power that has gone to his head. It is his total submission to Horse face and her corrupt government. The fact that the Police Commissioner allowed himself to be so blatantly used by Horse face in ‘exonerating’ her partner is deeply suspicious and something that out gutless media should have been all over.

  3. My wife and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop
    writing out a parking ticket.
    We went up to him and I said, “come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?”
    He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an “asshole.”
    He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires.
    So Shirley (my wife)called him a “shithead.”
    He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started
    writing more tickets.
    This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
    He finally finished, sneered at us and walked away. Just then our bus arrived, and we got
    on it and went home. We always look for cars with Vote Liarbour stickers.
    We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired.

  4. National will continue to do badly will there is disunity amongst National MPs. Judith Collins needs to come out and give an undertaking that she will not make a challenge for the leadership this side of the election regardless of the polls. We now have National MPs secretly leaking to the media. If Collins became the leader there is no way the party would be unified.

    • Actually those leakers need to lose their job. IMHO you do not undermine your leader. Like it or not. Have your say where you should but if you don’t have the following STFU., But of course this is just Hooton, Tova, Vance and co. manufacturing click bait ain’t it. Hooton of course would never have the guts to put his name forward for an MP’s job. would be rejected anyway.

    • The party is only unified in one thing at the moment. That one thing is losing the next election. Those who mindlessly support Soimon are making the same mistakes as the supporters of Cuntliffe and co. Collins can fight back against the buck-toothed liar, Soimon is just a loser.

        • Chuck. Soimon was not elected on the first ballot so he’s hardly a shining example of somebody who can unite the party. And as for those MP’s who don’t like Judith, well fuck them, if they want to keep their cushy jobs they will soon learn to like her.
          Let’s be honest here, the others often named as possible replacements are people who should be in the Labour party. Let’s take Nikki Kaye for example, she beat Horse Face twice in Auckland Central, you don’t win Auckland Central unless you are very much to the left. Kaye belongs with Labour.
          There is nobody with the personality or authority to match Horse Face in the National party. Soimon might be good in the house by reducing Horse Face to a state resembling a 14-year-old school girl having a tantrum but that matters not. Nobody who matters (the general voting public) watch the house.
          Bridges is a loser, he’s probably a very nice guy but he suffers from the Shearer disease in as much as the public don’t see him as PM.

          • Probably an accurate summation but I disagree on the Collins front. She’d be devastating as a Leader of the Opposition but lacks appeal in the centre. The centre, by the way, dictates governments……not committed voters. This logic can be lost on some people, Redbaiter being a good example.

            Kaye…..bleah! Ditto Adams. The only other prospect obvious to me is Mark Mitchell & I know little about him other than what’s on his spun CV.

            Any thoughts on Mitchell?

              • I had not finished my post so I will continue.

                Mitchel would not be keen to have a go on the present polling. The odds are National will lose in 2020 due to 15 March. If National loses Bridges will be rolled. ASFAIK Mitchell is not disliked by many Nat MPs. There may be a few. I think Judith might have worked out that Mitchell would be chosen over her and that is why she is prepared to have a go now.

                  • Not so sure the current COLL will last till 2020 and peters will either be dead electorally or actually and the gweens may struggle to achieve 5% . provided National garner the Rural and province party votes it wont take much to push taxinda into the gutter as her non deliverance and possibly economic disruption affects the swinging voter. I still predict 2019/20 will be taxinda’s anus horriblis strikes etc.

      • So true Big Bruv. However, National and the blue-rinse, party faithful are united in hating her. She is competent, strong, in possession of a sharp tongue and a quick wit. Everything that is needed to show up the socialist Jacinda – and everything that Soimon is not.

        Who gives a flying fuck about unity of the caucus, there was very little unity of the caucus in Thatcher’s Tory party – other than unity about being shit-scared of Maggie. However, we saw the strongest, most effective government in the Western world under Thatcher.

        The current National party is acting like the Republican party before Trump, they’re stinking swamp dwellers who just want to be part of some unaccountable club. Farage is pointing out how the UK Parliament is now forming a grand coalition against the people of the UK.

        Kind of like how Soimon is buying into the grand coalition that is instituting gun control, hate speech legislation and policy Stasi-like intimidation.

        What they need is a strong, polarising figure to kick all the swamp dwellers out or pull them into line. Soimon is the Cunliffe candidate. One that could only have been installed by a party that was irreconcilably out of touch with the electorate and looking to their own small-minded interests.

        Soimon is the leader you elect if you want to lose the next election.

        • I couldn’t agree more. This is why I will not become a member again and give them any money. Nothing will change until they get a strong opinionated person who is not afraid to call a spade a spade and kick the shit out of the COLL.
          At the present time, Judith is the only one to do this.

          • Dead right its time NZ had its Thatcher moment, a UK poll had thatcher the top PM, Churchill second and May/Major less than 1% support. Comments on NZ & UK blogs show a desire for a sea change in attitude towards Politicians who fail top do what they promise and Civil Servants/Police/Local Authorities and Bureaucrats in general who create barriers rather than provide solutions, in fact they are politicized left wing shills. A big swing to the right will b e painful for the above but will receive little sympathy from the electors.
            Nigel Farage is now ahead of the Tories & Labour combined in the EU election polls and with Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Holland and Denmark plus the Eastern Bloc gaining more Nationalist (Media speak Right Wingers) MP’s the Brussels elite Junker/Tusk/Barnier should be shitting bricks as the next EU Parliament will be very different to the last poodle one. Micron & Merkel are toast or lame ducks at best and the ECB/Deutsche Bank may create the global economic collapse that is coming. This next recession will be bloody Ugly & Brutal, non locals should be looking at a one way ticket back home as staying will effectively paint a target on themselves.

        • Judith is the main one who attacked licenced firearm owners. She was very happy to ignore due process and only allow 2 days for a handful of submissions. She went along with the government on this shocking legislation. I once would have supported her but never again.

  5. A new Civil Aviation Bill proposed by Transport Minister Phil Twyford would allow Kiwis to apply to the Disputes Tribunal over lost, delayed or damaged baggage.

    The proposed law changes would see a new Civil Aviation Bill “modernise” New Zealand’s key pieces of aviation legislation, the Civil Aviation Act 1990 and the Airport Authorities Act 1966, Twyford announced on Saturday.

    He said the changes touch on every part of the aviation sector – from drones to lost luggage.

    So another Twyford Bill.
    Will it be doomed to failure like the rest of his efforts?

    What are the hidden bits.
    Is this to allow Labour Mp’s to claim higher lost suit allowances?

  6. Yesterday Racheal came along to the meeting in Hamilton, She also re-joined the party. On have your say yesterday Lizziep said she also attended the meeting. I am hoping to get more to join the party especially gun owners.

    The is a public meeting in Barbara Kuriger’s electorate on Monday at 6:30 pm. Chris Bishop will be speaking on changes to the firearms law. I found out about this on Kiwi Gun Blog which is in a FB page. A number of firearm owners will be attending. It will be interesting the answer either of these MPs will give firearm owners when asked why they should vote National instead of ACT or the New Conservative Party.

    The meeting is at the Te Awamuta RSA. 381 Alexandra Street, Te Awamuta.
    I hope anyone on YSB who are unhappy with National supporting the government on firearm confiscation will attend if they are not too far from TA.

    • Spoke with a few of my friends during the week who have rifles and belong to clubs.
      One has 70 .He is a collector and has all the required security, special cat licences etc.
      Owners are far from happy and the way the cops are checking all clubs is intimidating.Kiwi gun owners are enthusiasts ,a great bunch of guys and I don’t think it is in there kiwi psyche to think of doing anything near committing crimes.
      I am sure these people that do come out of left field, so targeting the ‘good guys’ is a faulty policy and is only going to rub people up the wrong way.
      Politicians have lost the plot .

      • On “losing the plot” – wiseowl – couldn’t agree more.

        Unfortunately, we in NZ have another two years of the pendulum swinging harder and harder to the left. We’re always about 2-3 years behind political trends across the western world, I’ve never understood why – but we are.

        The danger of this lag is that socialist Jacinda can do a huge amount of damage after winning the next election as we have no checks and balances on the mob rule of MMP.

        I fear for a Venezualisation of our beautiful South Pacific paradise.

  7. Macron had a meeting with Facebook executives.
    https://news.sky.com/story/macron-greets-zuckerberg-with-threat-to-regulate-facebook-11716347

    Where is Cindy’s role in all this, is she going to get her snout in the trough and have a bit of a chin wag at the Le Rotante after the event.
    Maybe Macron will call the Zuck and exec’s back to give Cindy’s view, all that flying for a photo and a useless soundbite.
    At least if she rocks up on Yellow shirts day, there will be no riff raff barnstorming their lunch.

  8. References to lawnmowing re Jacinda the socialist

    I’m sorry to ask such a naive question. But I can’t work out what the connection is.

    I’ve googled like crazy on this matter and other than urban slang suggesting this relates to performing oral sex on a woman – I can’t make any sense of this.

    Am I missing something?

    • Oob (?) claimed he had sources about the use of code word for Soubrek’s illicit drug trades. That code word was lawnmowers.

      It cannot be proven (yet) but it seems credible to a number of people.

    • When Karel Sroubrek was arrested for drug importation/wholesaling and his phone searched, there was a text conversation with a phone number belonging to Mr Ardern, discussing ‘lawnmowers’ their pricing and availability etc etc…

      this was before there were ‘rumors & gossip’ about Mr Ardern that grew to fever pitch that Cindy’s police mate came out in public to deny that Mr Ardern was under or had been under investigation for any reason….

      Add this to Mr Sroubrek’s residency debacle ft. ILG and Mr Hardcore etc, and you have the odour of Clarke’s fishing tackle box hanging around.

      Or so I’ve been told anyway….

  9. The 757’s are being pushed to the max even though the planet is about to die. Talk about pushing tin.
    In three days this week, the two 757’s managed 16 flights, yesterday was all go with 8 flights for the day.
    The real hotspot that surprised me was Palmerston North, had 7 landings and takeoffs in 3 days.
    Yesterday
    8.38 from Auckland then off to Wellington and Christchurch
    14.49 from Wellington then off to Auckland.
    11.41 NZ time from Melbourne then onto Auckland that travelled to Melbourne 8/5/19
    Love to know how mant people are actually on each of these flights.
    It appears the planes cannot fly from Auckland to Wellington without stopping in Palmerston North.
    Why is this so? Is it range or someone important to pick up and drop off.
    Is it a case of do as I say not as I do.
    As the climate is in such deep peril, it is time for someone to control this taxi service.

  10. On talking to Tim McIndoe, I inquired when was enough enough of the crap that Trevor pulls etc. Anyway, I wasn’t really expecting an answer but the main point is that, I have.

    I have had a gutsful, and if ‘we’ don’t actually really make a noise and be counted now, when? Well personally I don’t want to wait until closer to the election. Hell’s teeth it cost me 5$ to renew my membership, it isn’t money that National needs, but support. Numbers of party members that can be equated as a party vote? Wouldn’t that work as an informal poll? So how about it?

    It was good to get my feet wet yesterday, and I told Tim that I was expecting a knock on the door from the Police (clearly they do not need a reason). I hope they are drawing to see who gets the short straw. So I have always been of the opinion that if you are going to be picked on anyway, you might as well make sure of it. I suppose it is a disadvantage that I do not possess any firearms, but I am more concerned about free speech.

    Nice that he remembered me from a shared Law Paper 10 odd years ago.

    Penny Bright would have loved all this big brother/conspiracy stuff.

    Lovely to have this forum but there needs to be a groundswell, or hell at least a ripple from the electorate, in person, not just on line like me.

    • The more who join in here the more noise we make.
      I have no advertisers to put any pressure on me to reform my comments or this blog.
      The stasi are welcome to come knocking anytime. It will make no difference.
      Free speech is far more important than a few lefties getting offended and complaining.
      I am wondering why we don’t have more lefties on here. Could it be that they have read the T & C and are afraid to join as to agree to them might be a step to far.
      I hope you spread the word about YSB, amongst your new found friends in National, Rachael.

    • Definitely Rachael, but are National really interested in what their supporters want, it seems not so much as long as they can get enough votes? I haven’t joined, but I have and possibly always will vote for the National Party? They have my email address but I’m yet to receive any notifications of meetings or party concerns. I don’t belong to any social media other than YSB and KB. (and a FB page I’ve never used). I’d like to see National spread the news even by good old email. I might make support some of their meetings if there was a schedule of when and where they are.

      • Well maybe a few outliers need to go along and ask questions then more people hear the answers. I used to ask lots of questions at uni, so many that I got asked not to. Anyway despite the rolling of eyes I hope something that was answered was an answer for an exam question. That is the same with political meeting surely. They should know the answers to questions and be able to be reasonably clear in their answer.

  11. Great announcements in the Taurnaga area today.
    Susan Devoid is going to run for Mayor. God help us. that would be two screeching harridans we would have to put up with. You really must read the FB comments. https://www.facebook.com/Stuff.co.nz/posts/10157461530824268?comment_id=10157461597144268&notif_id=1557536579803169&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic&ref=notif

    Now our current Mayor has presided over an appalling council while Poole was CEO. Poole was responsible for a lot of bad stuff and those court cases are going to go on for a longtime.

    The good news is that Tenby Powell has also put his hand up for the task. We just have to make him Mayor.

  14. As the roadside drug tests test for things other than dope, that is even more of a reason to use them, if there ends up being an issue about marijuana, then perhaps the instances picked up could be the start of a real assessment based on actual numbers. Frustrating in some respects but not in others, and if the tests can distinguish between synthetic non cannabis and cannabis as i am sure they can, is that not a good outcome too?

    It seems silly to do no tests at all just because one drug is more problematic about its effect.

    • I have no argument about detecting, nor convicting, people driving under the influence of a drug regardless of whether it is heroin, meth, alcohol or marijuana.

      What I do have issues with is prosecuting for technical traces of a drug rather than evidence of impairment. A driver with 49 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood is okay whereas another who smoked half a joint over a month ago isn’t. In the latter case the effects are long gone but present legislation does not differentiate. Any trace is effectively deemed as evidence of DUI.

      As the law stands police can require tests for drug impairment & require a blood sample if they are not satisfied with the results. IMHO this provides a filter which saliva tests added to the law as it stands do not provide.

        • …..”while refinements are made or data is collected regarding marijuana.”…..

          Yeah! Nah! Occasional marijuana smokers will continue to be hounded while officialdom spend the next twenty years processing data.

          If we are going to sanction tests then let’s get it right & now. Specify an absolute scientific limit, legalise consumption that allows that limit to be reached or stick with roadside impairment tests as presently given.

          Then we’ll find out whether the naysayers & social conservatives are serious about road safety or just having another crack at those who use a different social lubricant to them.
