  1. For the ones wondering, about the Beatle’s John Lennon’s son;-

    “Been listening to ‘respectable’ journalists quoting CCP official numbers for months without doubt or hesitation.
    Calling it the Wuhan Virus but only days later telling ppl who say it’s from China they’re racist.
    The official media have lost their legitimacy.”

    Then another tweet,
    “Excuse me how the fudge is this breaking news?” said Lennon. “And why do we need U.S. ‘Intelligence’ to tell us what we all already know?”

    Wake, Woke those Journalists up Sean Ono Lennon, even if I have never heard of you.

    • If isn’t hard to imagine the parentage of a person whose surname is “Ono Lennon”but Sean is 44 years old and a professional musician and songwriter. I wonder if he aches to have his opinion acknowledged as his own. It must be hard to live in such a shadow.

    • Ardern and her media are using political shills, posing as doctors, to tell us masks don’t work.

      This is fake news. Masks do work. They just want to keep them for medical staff. Part of their effectiveness is they stop us touching our face.

      The amount of misinformation during this mental health emergency has reached bizzare levels.

  2. No wonder China seems to have got on top of its own CCP virus.
    Then it seems they export their shit to other countries.

    It would seem that a part of Aussie is actually doing something, setting up things to address the short fall of PPE stuff unlike this governments adhans of hope.
    Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt said a ‘war production unit’ had been convened at the weekend to prepare Australia.

    ‘We have four companies that have indicated that they are willing to make ventilators and will be seeking approvals which have been given at light speed,’ he told Nine News on Monday.

    ‘At the same time, we are working on imports and procurements, large volumes of masks have arrived over the course of the weekend, additional volumes of testing kits.’

      • Fuck buying facemasks off China. The pricks have probably spat in each one. We should be making them in NZ. See, there was a reason for Home E all those years ago. Now the numptys have only Home D.

  3. An interesting study and explains why the pursuit of face masks may be factor in control.
    Hopefully also NZ’s more open spaces help.

  4. The media are trying to promote Ardern’s response to Covid-19 as “world leading” and exceptional. Nothing could be further from the truth. It was slow and unremarkable.

    Trump put border restrictions in place “reckless irresponsible and dangerous” screamed headlines.

    A few days latter Ardern follows with similar measures “bold and world leading” grovelled the media.

    • Kea, It shows the incompetence of all in Government departments. The so called experts we pay huge salaries to annually, for what? When there is an emergency of any kind, they are ill equipped to deal with any kind of issue, I could quote a few other times we have been shown a lack of ability. It is a fascinating study in what is important to them. Obviously the COL are not able or willing to see us through all this. Grant Robertson’s pathetic “the Minister has apologised to the Prime Minister” was an OK answer to thousands of questions we as NZ citizens as to what the the mminister of God health was doing? Each day I think kindergarten is the right place for the PM to visit. My grandchildren could do better job organising the supply of covid19 PPE, than these officials.

  5. If you want to see who Ardern has promoted to new plod boss YouTube RNZs ” new police commissioner Andy Costers first day on the job” FFS where did Ardern find this super PC buffoon?
    Just look at the way this saviour of the people answers a simple question “what do you think of David Clarkes mountain bike ride ” this guy has been schooled by the same person that has trained Ardern to side step, lie ,and talk all around the subject without saying anything.
    But hey he’s a man of action “go early go hard”, his first order ,every policeman or woman must shave off their beard ,Fuuuckkkk.

    • Isn’t it delicious?

      The rank and file journo – who has lauded, lied for, covered up, dissembled, made-up etc to protect stoopid Cindy and the fascistic CoL – are losing their jobs because of their Marxist idols.

      As the old saying goes “Be careful what you wish for”.

      And now a generation of stoopid Cindy-admiring millenials are going to get exactly what they wished for to – as they get to enjoy the fruits of the Venezualisation of our once beautiful South Pacific paradise.

      The fact that I can say “I told you so” doesn’t really give me much pleasure (btw – that’s bullshit – it’s almost worth the misery that is coming to be able to wipe the smug of so many libtard under-40s that I’ve come across)

  7. This seems a very good idea – if only someone had thought of this before the moronic CoL banned plastic bags

    So it’s official, NZ has reached a new low – we’re officially dumber than the dumbest city in the US (this prestigious title is held by San Francisco – the city that has settled for the worst Speaker the US has ever seen – Nancy Pelosi).

    Even progressive shit-hole San Francisco now realises that the dumb-as-fuck virtue-signalling moronicism of banning single use plastic bags and forcing us all to put our shopping in germ-infested (ever-increasingly unhygienic) re-usuable bags is a major health hazard. They’ve outlawed the use of re-usable bags and allowed shops to give customers single-use plastic bags to take their groceries away in.

    I recall a lot of sane people in NZ complaining about the health hazards of stoopid Cindy’s government forcing us to put our groceries in increasingly dirty reusable bags. But as usual the fascists knew best – we were told to “trust the experts” and suck it up.

    I imagine that San Francisco’s plastic straw ban won’t last long after the café’s and bars open up again – who the fuck is going to want to suck their drink through a metal straw that’s had umpteen previous Covid carriers’ lips around it?

    I’d like to suggest that the YSB army write respectfully to Mr Bridges along these lines – asking for the plastic bag ban to be repealed (to be kind to essential workers and poor people). Let’s do this!

    Dear Mr Bridges
    There is much news coverage that many US cities are now over-turning their single-use plastic bag ban as a health measure to protect essential service workers in supermarkets from the high risk of cross-infection from germ-carrying re-usable plastic bags.

    Surely as a matter of respect to essential frontline workers in supermarkets it is essential that the single-use plastic bag ban must be lifted to protect their health while we need them most. I note that some NZ supermarkets have already taken matters into their own hands and have banned shoppers from bringing any of their own re-usable bags into supermarkets at all – I’m not sure how those who do not have a car are supposed to get their shopping home under these circumstances. It seems to be that we are not only being unkind and uncaring to essential supermarket workers – we are also making it hard for those less well off to get their shopping home.

    I think it’s a bad look for Government to be so far behind industry practice, especially when it is in one of the most essential of our services, and as such I’d ask that your committee consider raising this revocation as a matter of urgency.

    Kind regards etc etc

  8. Bread and circuses.

    Obviously Cindy & Co will want the people to be under the wing of the state. They could not wish for a much better excuse than this. The state will provide the bread.

    Interestingly, it seems that saving sport is very high on the priority list for the fat controller.
    In a crisis, when there are repeated comparisons to war and that governments are on a ‘war footing’, who cares a fig about bloody sport?

    I love sport, but really, the economy is in the S-bend and they want to even waste time talking about saving sport?

    WHY??

    Because sport is the modern day circus of course.

    Without sport, how would you keep the masses distracted?

    In a normal, rational, and fair world, sport would be very far down the list of priorities I would say, and rightly so.

    It is a point of interest that there is so much emphasis on saving sport.

    Bread and circuses.

    • I’m not sure your analysis is right – if I think back to the most visible of totalitarian communist regimes we’ve had over the past 100 years it’s not like they always went ‘all in’ on sporting dominance, well apart from:
      – the Nazis in Germany and their master race bullshit at the Berlin Olympics
      and
      – the USSR and the Eastern bloc countries who developed the science of drug-cheating in sports and got far ahead of the LGBTQi movement by turning women into actual men through massive testesterone dosages
      and
      – Communist China who isn’t even very careful about hiding their drug cheating athletes in an attempt to show that their regime is the way of the future in all ways to their downtrodden masses

      Oh wait – you may be on to something after all!

  9. Addressing public servants on full pay – this is absolutely vital

    Re Ed’s post about the government being afraid to reduce public servants’ pay at the moment. Putting it here as there is no ‘back and forth’ debate unless it’s in HYS.

    The moment the public service starts to experience reality, things will start happening.

    Think about it. You are sitting at home, on full pay, doing nothing at all. It’s a dream scenario for your average indolent PSA member. You have reached what you would foolishly think is the true socialist nirvana that you have been taught in school is available if only we can (crush the male patriarchy, remove capitalism, defeat sexism, fight fascism, remove hate speech, welcome an infinite number of refugees, pay beneficiaries 10% more than the average wage etc).

    Take that protected, isolated status away, make it hard to pay the mortgage, start them worrying about putting food on the table etc – they’ll start whinging at their bosses and soon the whine will turn into a deafening “poor me” roar – that’s when we’ll see advice going forward to stoopid Cindy and the CoL that we have to end the shutdown.

    At present – this is just the best paid holiday evah!

    First steps should be:
    1) Time off is considered to come out of annual leave balances – for every 2 days on shutdown, one day of annual leave is used up
    2) Kiwisaver contributions should be suspended during lockdown – it’s only fair and during a shutdown fairness is as important as kindness
    3) CEs should be forced to submit plans to Government now for how they will reduce operating costs (translates to “salaries”) by 10% to reflect the drop in GDP – every month that the shutdown is in place. To assist with this – the more onerous and ridiculous obligations of the ERA will be suspended by Order in Council or under the emergency fascism powers.

    Do that and I guarantee you within 2 weeks the lockdown will be over.

Next we’ll hear that #commsgirl has grabbed her private 727 and fled to Tokelau to stay with dad, where she can potty train to her heart’s content.

  11. time the Nats got a new leader.

    National Party leader Simon Bridges said he would support expanding police powers – even if it took a law change to do so.

    “It’s increasingly clear that neither the guidelines or the law allows police to enforce the lockdown,” he said.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/120785044/coronavirus-police-lack-power-to-truly-enforce-lockdown-rules

    The document starts by telling officers there is no curfew in place, and people are still allowed to move around as long it does not have the potential to further spread the virus.

    It notes there is no power to stop vehicles to check the occupants are complying with the Covid-19 health notice.

    He is no better than Bush.

        I don’t think he has put a foot wrong, generally. There are things I’d like less of – for example immigration – but as an immigrant myself I can understand ACTs policy of allow people to come here, providing they hold New Zealand values. I don’t mind their policy on abortion or euthanasia, because they are about personal freedom and personal responsibility.

        All in all, I can’t imagine voting for any other party in New Zealand. They have the broadest, fairest set of policies and I think they will actually be able to change the way we live for the better.

  12. You know that Netflix is bound to make a series about how the lockdown is changing the way that people view work, society, their local community and their family.
    I have a list of possible protagonist for a series of episodes:

    – A supermarket shelf stacker who realizes the true importance of his work in the supply chain
    – A singleton woman journalist in her mid-thirties who realizes there is more to life than clubs, air travel and boozy gatherings in pubs with friends
    – A family who rediscover each other when forced to live together
    – An owner of a travel agency who’s world is turned upside-down
    – A local busy-body who finds a source of new power through the government’s new dob-in website
    – A man dying alone whose only wish is to hold his newborn grandchild

    Use your imagination and feel free to add to this list.

    During the COVID-19 lockdown, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Finance Minister Grant Robertson are in the same bubble, and they’re addressing the nation on a daily basis.

    But what has happened to the rest of New Zealand’s 120 MPs since Parliament shut up shop?

        Like letting people acquire information about your drivers licence, or passport, and politically trying to hide that they were a party to divulging to any dubious character, information that you may have a gun. That is proven by the number of lapses.

        What other systems do they open up, like to bank accounts?

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/04/coronavirus-grant-robertson-hints-at-potential-rent-freeze-for-business.html

    With the country on a pandemic alert level 4 lockdown for four weeks – and possibly longer – both employees and employers are hurting.

    The Government moved fast to announce a wage subsidy scheme to encourage bosses to keep their staff, and on Friday revealed new rules allowing businesses to put debts into ‘hibernation’, if the majority of their creditors agreed.

    “Most of those creditors will have a good understanding of how that business operates,” Finance Minister Grant Robertson told Newshub Nation on Saturday.

    “They’ll know whether it was a going concern going into this and whether it should be on the other side.”

    “…staffers of several Democratic nonprofits and digital ad firms realized this week that they would not be able to use Google’s dominant ad tools to spread true information about President Trump’s handling of the outbreak on YouTube and other Google platforms. The company only allows PSA-style ads from government agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and trusted health bodies like the World Health Organization. Multiple Democratic and progressive strategists were rebuked when they tried to place Google ads criticizing the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus, officials within the firms told Protocol.

  19. In Tokyo yesterday 89 new Wuhan flu cases, of which 60% are untraceable. The governor of Tokyo is urging the Prime Minister to call for a lockdown, but Abe is concerned about the destruction of peoples’ livelihoods. The governor is telling Tokyoites to be ready for a loackdown at any time.
    Across the whole of Japan, 353 new cases yesterday (the first day the increase has topped 300). The policy has been to send ALL of these people to hospitals, but the reality is that even Japan doesn’t have the capacity, so local bodies are discussing sending all the non-serious cases to the empty hotels. (There are a LOT of empty hotels in Japan at the moment, as well the facilities built to house athletes for the postponed Olympics.)

      • Good point. The government was probably doing little testing in the lead up to crunch-time for the decision to postpone the Olympics.
        I am certain the Japanese are not testing that much. Don’t ask questions if you don’t want to hear the answers.

    This potential conflict of interest demands answers since the garbage IHME Coronavirus model that she is using crashed the stock market and spiked unemployment.

    • Posted much more on that WHO murderous bloody handed Dictator General. Tedros. and linked.
      As “Minister of Health,” Tedros reportedly played a key role in covering up epidemics.
      Perhaps the most significant example was his concealing of multiple cholera outbreaks, falsely labeling them water-borne diarrhea and downplaying the crises.
      He also bullied bureaucrats into silence about these problems, news reports and critics say.
      Later, as “Minister of Foreign Affairs,” Tedros helped the regime hunt down journalists and dissidents, including those who fled abroad.

  23. There once was a happy little fly buzzing around outside the shed, when she came upon a large pile of fresh cow manure.
    Since it had been hours since her last meal and she was feeling hunger pangs, she flew down to the irresistible delicacy and began to munch out.
    She ate ….. and ate … and then …. she ate some more! Finally, she decided she’d had plenty. She washed her face with her tiny front legs, belched a few times, then attempted to fly away. But alas …..she had pigged out far too much and could not get off the ground. She looked around wondering what to do about this unpleasant situation. Then she spotted a pitchfork leaning upright against the shed wall. She’d found the solution…..
    She realized that if she could just become airborne she’d be able to fly again. So, she painstakingly climbed to the top of the handle. Once there, she took a deep breath, spread her tiny fly wings and leaped confidently into the air.
    She dropped like a rock and splattered all over the ground… one very dead fly.

    The moral of this sad story?

    Never fly off the handle when you know you’re full of shit!

  25. From Rebel News – Canada
    “Every day, our journalists put on a protective face mask and go to the airport, to report on the continuous stream of flights arriving from foreign countries.
    It’s surprising to most Canadians when they learn that foreign flights still arrive daily — including from virus hot-spots like China.
    But it’s downright shocking when they learn that there is no screening at all at our airports. There are no temperature tests, and no face masks handed out to foreign arrivals who then connect on to domestic flights — something specifically promised by Health Minister Patty Hajdu

      • Some people can handle retirement better than others.

        Retirement for some managers in Japan can be devastating because all they have is their job. Their job provides them with status and a stream of people wanting to be their acquaintances. Once they retire, their status and the phone calls all end.

        Of course, it begs the question that if these men are so intelligent, why could they not think deeply about retirement years ahead of time and plan for the eventuality?

        • I reckon some of it depends on how you earned your living before retirement. For the last thirty years I was self employed on my own property. In that situation you make your own decisions & your own mistakes but you don’t have to justify yourself to outside interference. If you’re not self motivated you’ll never make half way point.

          If you’re so equipped as well as comfortable with your own company & that of family & close friends retirement is a walk in the park but you still need something to do. Boating & fishing up until last Wednesday did it for me.

They discuss the EU and what it is really all about (a Utopian dream) and end up talking about what is really going on behind this virus lock down etc. This guy is definitely not your usual diplomat.

    But the wowsers are out in force “Healthwatch group wants online sales scrapped altogether”

    Online alcohol shops halt deliveries after getting ‘swamped’ with orders from Kiwis in lockdown

    Alcohol stores across New Zealand are having to stop their delivery services because the demand from Kiwi customers in lockdown is too high at the moment.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/online-alcohol-shops-halt-deliveries-after-getting-swamped-orders-kiwis-in-lockdown

    “I’m so sorry guys to anyone who missed out but we’ve hit capacity again so have to put the website ordering on hold we’ll we clear the back orders,” the company said on their site.

    “We’re estimating we’ll be able to take orders again on 7th April. Any orders already placed will get sent out.”

    A healthwatch group is hoping the Government will stop allowing the sale of alcohol online altogether for the remainder of the lockdown, believing nothing good is coming from it.

    Alcohol Healthwatch says that all possible steps need to be taken to reduce pressures on our health system to address the coronavirus pandemic and removing online alcohol sales from the list of essential businesses is one way to do that.

    “There is a direct link between the level of alcohol use in our country and the level of accidental and self-inflicted injuries and other alcohol-related conditions that require medical or police assistance,” said Dr Nicki Jackson, director of Alcohol Healthwatch.

        I do have one grapefruit tree and two Japanese yuzu citrus trees (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuzu) in my front garden.
        We produced about 20 small jars of marmalde from the grapefruit last season, but the yuzu trees are still young and will not bear fruit for another 9-10 years.

        • I’d never heard of yuzu. The only citrus I normally eat are Satsuma mandarins which grow abundantly & sweetly in the Far North. It may or may not be useful to you as a hobbyist grower but NZ soils are very deficient in Magnesium. It makes little difference in most pastoral & arable farming but the shortage is the reason for clouds of causmag over dairy farms in spring & citrus growers apply magnesium rich fertilisers to sweeten their fruit.

          If you have a clay pan you might get away with using the cheapest application which is dolomite lime. Talk to someone in a garden centre first.

    Growers forced to dump veggie crops due to lockdown
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2020/04/growers-forced-to-dump-veggie-crops-due-to-lockdown.html

    Growers say they’re being forced to dump their veggie crop because most of the retailers they supply have been closed.

    The level 4 alert means they can’t supply restaurants and cafes either, and they say they’re “facing devastation”.

    But the Government’s not willing to budge.

    Amid a health crisis, shut-up veggie shops are making Kiwis much-needed five-plus-a-day a lot harder to get hold of with supply cut off – closed and deemed non-essential by the Government.

    “Let’s start a process where we gradually open some of these outlets so that the fruit and veggies being grown by New Zealanders can be sold to New Zealanders to keep them healthy,” Horticulture New Zealand chief executive Mike Chapman says.

    The veggie stores supply up to 30 percent of the country’s supply and say that part of the food supply chain is facing devastation.

    “We have crops that are ready now which can’t go to market because they haven’t got a market to go to,” Chapman says.

      • We have to grow our own. I suggest you plant seeds now as you probably can’t buy seedlings unless the supermarket has a few and they will go quickly. It’s going to be a long winter.

      • Wiggles meat is running out too. Meanwhile fruit is going to rot as growers cant get harvesting underway.

    • you say
      ‘But the Government’s not willing to budge.’

      of course not

      their intent is to crash the economy and rebuild in their sicko image

      Revolt before you are too weak to do so

      The meek shall not inherit the earth
      Godboy Simon Bridges is weak, meek and wont inherit a bloody thing.

  40. For those that are trajics like me and like good up tp date info there is this site.

    GDPLive is real-time forecasting of New Zealand’s Gross Domestic Product.

    Using AI and a myriad of official and unofficial sources, the AI team at Massey University’s Albany campus has built a machine learning system that forecast’s GDP nationally, regionally, and by industry sector.

    Full explanations of how it works is here and its track record is here.

    New Zealand’s official national accounts are published about eighty days after the end of each quarter. But the data that builds these results is all available earlier, coming in continuously. That official flow, and some unofficial but highly relevant parallel data streams are what powers the results presented in the charts in this service.

    You can find it https://www.interest.co.nz/business/103950/massey-universtitys-clever-ai-gdp-model-now-hosted-interestconz-giving-much-earlier

    Been aroun d a few weeks and I’d forgotten about it.
