  1. Autumn storm on the way. Batten down the hatches and garden furniture.

    Weather: Big Easter weekend storm likely for New Zealand

    “The first front arrives on Wednesday bringing rain to western parts of New Zealand and either patchy rain or showers for the northern drought zones,” the forecaster says.

    “By Thursday windy westerlies kick in and by next weekend it looks as though a significant Southern Ocean storm will bring the first wintry blast of 2020.”

    The long weekend will likely see wintery weather conditions in parts of the South Island and windy conditions nationwide.



    • I am not clear on this at all is this for Easter this year? next year? or next weekend? The skies are as blue today as yesterday it maybe elsewhere but not here yet. Once this starts depression from the lockdown will really start to kick in. Anyone else in a serious state of Covid 19 this morning? Come on out there, surely for the closing down of the country the ruination of businesses etc etc there must be a spike? No? just carry on as normal while the country looses any financial ability to continue on, just wait till the gubment can’t pay the dole? Wow that will be interesting



      • They say Easter, which is this weekend right? but then they say it will hit on Wednesday and into next weekend. I reckon they updated their original statement and messed up the message with their alterations. Anyway, take it as a warning that winter is on the way so NZ is due for our annual storms as the weather changes…



        • Evaporation, far out at sea, has been a common occurrence this past summer, that leads to postponement of the wet, except for Southland.

          A steady period of gentle warm rains now, would ease many farming concerns.

          Like the tides, it will change, but no reason why we can not have a ‘dryish’? frosty? winter.
          For many farmers, the tinge of green, seems to be from dews, a bit drizzle, and if lucky a passing shower.
          No real autumnal grass growth, to get a feed bank up, and the time band to winter cooling is tightening up.

          Such a back log for lambs, cattle, ewes at the freezing works, that are only working at the most of 60% of their capability.
          Yet they are eating much grass, while waiting in the queue and bringing on earlier feeding out of feed stocks to the other capital live-stock.



  2. Officer among three seriously injured after fleeing car ‘t-bones’ police dog handler’s vehicle in South Auckland

    Three people have been injured, two critically, after a vehicle fleeing from police crashed into a police dog handler’s vehicle in Manurewa, South Auckland, last night.

    Two occupants of the fleeing car are in a critical condition, and the dog handler is in a serious condition, Mr Meade said.

    All three have now been transported by St John to Middlemore Hospital.

    A police dog was in the dog handler’s vehicle at the time of the collision, but was unharmed.



  3. Stocks just had their best week in decades?

    It would be interesting to see how much of super billionaire Bond villain types (like Bill Gates and George Soros) unloaded of their massive share holdings before the Chinese Virus bio attack was in full effect. It would be even more interesting to see how much those same evil Bond villain types have bought their holdings right back in this week as stock markets have seen the steepest gains in decades. It’s what you do if you have money – buy into the market at the bottom and sell just before the crashes. Soros has long made a practice of precipitating crashes – because it’s easier if you don’t have to predict and you just manipulate.

    Seems like there needs to be some proper large scale insider trading investigations on all the Fortune 500 CEOs who abruptly all resigned en masse at the end of January (want to be – their resignation involved cashing up all their stock options – before the crash?).

    Those guys were all big DNC donors too – but it’s OK – I’m sure this is just one of those unfortunate coincidences and we should all just ‘trust the experts’.



  4. Somebody has got Tedro’s goat. 🙂

    World Health Organisation’s ‘China centric’ leader launches bizarre attack on Taiwan
    17 minutes 08 seconds. : Sky News Australia : Apr 8, 2020

    The leader of the World Health Organisation has gone on a bizarre rant attacking Taiwan while claiming to be the victim of racist comments and death threats.

    WHO general manager Tedros Adhanom was responding to calls he should resign for failing to condemn China’s role in covering up the coronavirus crisis which has since killed more than 87,000 people.

    “This (racial) attack came from Taiwan,” he said.

    “We need to be honest. I will be straight today. From Taiwan.

    “And Taiwan, the Foreign Ministry also, they know the campaign. They didn’t disassociate themselves. They even started criticizing me in the middle of all that insult and slur, but I didn’t care.”

    Sky News Australia revealed yesterday Mr Adhanon was blocking the release of the names of doctors who voted against declaring a global health emergency in late January , resulting in tens of thousands of deaths.

    Two days prior to that decision Mr Adhanom was photographed happily smiling with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping.
    China was at that stage lobbying the world, Including Australia, not to implement economically devastating travel bans.

    US President Donald Trump has also threatened to withdraw funding from the WHO and formally investigate the body he described as being “China centric”.

    Mr Adhanom and the WHO drew global criticism two weeks ago when one of its senior doctors awkwardly dodged questions about Taiwan, an independent country China regards as a rebel region which must be reunited with the mainland.

    The exchange has been condemned as evidence the WHO is heavily influenced by China.

    Mr Adhanom did not respond directly to criticisms he mishandled the crisis and instead when on a tirade about racism.

    “I can tell you personal attacks that have been going on for more than two, three months. Abuses, or racist comments, giving me names, black or Negro,” he said in Geneva.

    “I’m proud of being black, proud of being Negro.

    “I don’t care, to be honest … even death threats. I don’t give a damn.”

    The pattern repeats when he hid the cholera out breaks. 🙁
    A part of the pattern in recognizing Robert Mugabe for his improvement to Zimbabwe health systems. 🙁

    Tedros needs to be quarantined in his small-pox “body bag” as he blusters & threatens censorship in the video.
    Any money to any part of the UNiconical should be stopped.
    He uses the power of frightening people, whilst calling for honesty.

    Demanding to quarantine (censoring) the politicizing of CCP virus(COVid-19)
    Demanding unity & solidarity. hmmm the locksteps of no ideas and to comply with CCP orders.
    Then expect that we believe his estimations.

    Compassion, care, big heart,,, now where do we hear that, with the Easter bunny and Tooth Fairy
    that is so essential, but look at what you pushed under the bus with your bloody diarrhea hands.

    Abusing him, racists, names, & even death threats,
    But does not want any African abused and so his tribalism comes out. hmmm and he supports who & what leadership???
    Yes he will stay bought, no consideration of the facts that he covers up.

    So he piles on Taiwan for his troubles…but everything is right in WHO, glossing over “mistakes”, burying them for the need of “global solidarity” hmmm. I am sure supporting a tax on income, for his trough and elite.
    Not a direct rebuttal by Sky’s Peta Credlin 🙁 🙂 🙂 but a prophetic rebuttal
    as they already know the flaws of the WHO.

    The World Health Organisation ‘is a joke’
    8 mins 6 seconds : Apr 3, 2020

    Outsiders host Rowan Dean says Australia should be pulling out of the World Health Organisation “tomorrow” as it has been “actively working against our interests and as a propaganda arm for the Chinese”.

    The WHO has been criticised for its handing and mixed messaging throughout the coronavirus pandemic which has currently seen over one million infections worldwide.

    Mr Dean said the World Health Organisation “is a joke” and “the bloke who is now in charge of it has disgraced himself at every stage”.

    He said we could have a world body that looks after health, but it shouldn’t be the WHO which has been “completely corrupted”.

    “We should be pulling out of that organisation tomorrow and having nothing more to do with them”.
    hear hear hear!!!

    It seems that many here in NZ are looking at getting a position in the UN or WHO dreaming & figuring that the looting of people, will put a lot feed in the trough for those that get into those positions.
    Just what power are the CCP exerting in NZ?



    • That is a real bizarre speech. Nutty.
      So much hot air. Zero respect for this man.
      Even there is a ethnic European snake (Bruce Aylward )who weeks ago said we need to have “gratitude to China”, and then cut off questions by a Hong Kong reporter about Taiwan’s response to Cov-19 (i.e very successful response) simply because his a Chinese whore.
      But this half wit, Dr. Tedros, just keeps going on about ‘Ït isnt about me’, ‘I don’t care’, and critics are Waaacist.
      Attacks from Taiwan, he claims? Nope. We in the West see the WHO as a tainted NGO.
      CCP Mercenary.
      I have been slow to wake up to this, but it is glaringly obvious now.



  5. Martyn von Bergen had bit of a whinge about the dob in anybody having fun culture in stuffed or ferald, ( went back to reread but I can’t find it). He was saying how the Rev David Clark’s career was toast and did he deserve getting shafted?
    Yes he did, one rule for you and one rule for me. He’s got a bad case of entitleliese, real bad. He should have been at his desk in Wellington instead he was sent home on gardening leave cause he’s tits and upsets everybody! The Rev Clark has always been a slimy git. Someone who enjoys the warm heated leather seats in the limo too much! If he came across as an ordinary person, he might have been ok.
    But he comes across as this smarmy self opinionated git. Exactly what the new labour has become across the board. The old working man has long disappeared and now it is chardonnay socialists, that rule!
    My word is tough shit mate. You will never have it so good ever again. You were elevated way above your station in life, like most of you cabinet colleagues!



  6. I was chatting to a mate in Aussie last night. They have the Virus under control with Social Distancing/Closing Borders and their Economy has no doubt taken a hit but is still ticking along…(My mate works in banking)
    He is aghast at what Jacinda has done to New Zealand – “Mate I feel for you guys” “Does she even know how economies work??”
    No my friend she doesn’t…



  7. Uh oh!

    Breaking News:

    The Indonesian volcano Krakatoa, also known as Krakatau, has reportedly erupted.

    Reports say it sent a plume of ash several kilometres into the air, with a boom that could be heard from far away.

    – more to come.



  8. Coronavirus: Kiwis stuck on cruise ship in Uruguay on their way home

    Uruguay’s government says it will repatriate 112 Australians and New Zealanders from a cruise ship that has been stranded in the La Plata River near capital Montevideo since March 27.

    The operation is to begin on Friday evening (local time) when the ship is scheduled to dock in the Port of Montevideo.

    The passengers, most of whom have tested positive for the coronavirus, are to be bussed to a special airport terminal with strict health controls.



    • The writer is jumping from one side of the fence to the other. I doubt he has much of an idea how the real world operates.

      With the 2009 H1N1 out break we had 700mill – 1.4 billion infections worldwide and about 500,000 deaths (depends who’s figures you take). We did not close down economies, travel continued afterwards and everyone got on with life.
      I will be surprised if the deaths reach that level this time and I expect life will continue reasonably well by the end of this year unless stupid Governments allow their economies to go over the cliff because they listen to the academic modellers etc.



      • Yes, I’m pretty sure that was the last time I had the flu and it was pretty bad. I felt like death for days and it took a long time to fully recover. Funny thing was I caught it shortly after having my employer sponsored flu jab. I have not had a flu jab since and neither have I had the flu again. With all this social distancing which I am strictly observing I do not intend to have a regular flu jab this years either.



    • Runs with the hares and hunts with the hounds but he’ showing more political nous han most of the msm.

      “People hate politics, especially at times like this. But politics is the way we legitimise the kind of power being exercised right now. It’s the way you can make sure that the fortress country we become after the lockdown is one you want to live in – or at least one where you have a “loser’s consent”, by which you can accept that the majority of people want a different country than the one you want…

      But the questioning of whether he has the “authority” to travel is ridiculous. He’s the leader of the Opposition. If a cop tried to stop his free travel around the country, it would be a constitutional outrage. He’s made clear that access to the press is one of the reasons he wishes to be in Wellington, and that reason stacks up – while we all have his phone number, TV generally needs footage of politicians. Obviously no-one should be “above the rules”, but Bridges meets the definition of essential worker easily enough…

      But divides will emerge as we get closer to the election date of September 19, which should not be delayed unless absolutely necessary. National and Labour will have very different plans for how to get out of this hole. And the Green Party, hopeful that this stimulatory spending is not as carbon-intensive as stimulatory spending usually is, will have a whole different idea entirely. The best way to sort all that out is an election, and an election soon.”



  9. There is so much misleading rubbish published on the Stuff website it is no wonder so many people seem to be poorly informed. They are talking about the virus “dying out” now when it is has been revealed that there are at least three separate strains of the CCP virus so far so is is highly likely that this will become an annual event just like the regular flu.



  10. Plod is rolling out airport security staff to assist them on the front line!
    Maybe head plod or the Comrade should have made a public announcement first!
    My first reaction on meeting one would be “Fuck Off”! No more power than a cardboard cutout!



  11. Two more people die of coronavirus in New Zealand – latest deaths in Wellington and Christchurch


    One was a man in his 80s who died at hospital in Wellington yesterday. He became ill on March 26 and was hospitalised on the 28th.

    The other death was a man in his 70s who died at Burwood Hospital in Christchurch. As with the woman in her 90s who died yesterday, the man was one of 20 residents transferred from Rosewood Rest home after a cluster formed at the aged care facility.



    • OMG !
      The number of deaths has quadrupled in a week.

      what shall we do ?? !!

      Neil deGrasse Tyson – Aug 2019 tweet
      In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings.
      On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…
      -500 to Medical errors
      -300 to the Flu
      -250 to Suicide
      -200 to Car Accidents
      -40 to Homicide via Handgun

      Perspective is good.

      “Globally, it is estimated that 142,000 people died in 2013 from adverse effects of medical treatment; in 1990, the number was 94,000.[1] According to recent medical malpractice statistics, in the United States, at least 250,000 people have died annually of medical errors and negligence.”

      The USA figure is believed to be excessive as people try it on for lawsuits.
      Still, that number is not chickenfeed.

      Perhaps we should close doctors surgeries and hospitals.
      A lot of people die in hospital.
      It must be a bad place.

      Actually more logical than smashing the economy and people’s livelihood for a bad flu.
      4 deaths is still only 20% of the NZ deaths from 2009 swine flu.
      People I have spoken to in the last week have generally said they did not know of fatalities from that. I did not. It barely registered.
      But this pandemonium…..



  12. Why wont these Fucking Nazi Cunts identify the clusters?????

    “Both of the latest two people to die of Covid-19 were elderly – a man in his 80s passed away at Wellington Public Hospital yesterday and had a link to an established cluster which won’t be identified.”


    I posted a similar [Mod – Deleted] approved comment on the “other” blog…. So much better being able to express my self honestly, frankly, and succinctly here….



  13. An outspoken voice in the gang community in recent years, Waikato Mongrel Mob Kingdom leader Sonny Fatupaito was one of the first to recognise the threat of new gangs arriving from Australia and even mooted an alliance with rival Black Power. However, the Weekend Herald can reveal two of Fatupaito’s closest relatives defected from the Mob to expand the Comancheros into the Waikato.

    A Weekend Herald investigation today publishes new data released by the police, broken down by region, as well as some of the reasons behind the spike in numbers and the changing face of the underworld.


    Meanwhile plod is minding our business and not theirs. Must be like a holiday camp for them.



  14. The sadest most depressing thing I have ever seen is the pathetic sight of broken spirited fearful and joyless zombies lining up to buy groceries.

    Normally in times of hardship people develop a sense of black humour and comeradery. That is totally absent.

    They are low minded dead eyed sheeple who are so afraid of death they will never live.



    • I think they are frightened mate
      At Countdown I tried chatting and joking with the woman in the allocated space behind me (We spent a good 45 min together) and she just gave me a terrified look form behind her mask!
      Jacinda and her mates must be laughing their arses off that we all fell for it…So easy for them to take total control now



        • I spent a good half an hour waiting in line for the Tai Pin Chinese supermarket in Mt. Wellington this morning. I and all the other customers had on our masks. (Tai Pin policy is no admission without a mask or gloves. This is impressive, even by Japanese standards!)
          The Chinese customers seemed in high spirits and chatted to each other (while maintaining a good separation).
          Crap! I didn’t have my gloves on me. No worries. The guard at the door had a box of disposable gloves, which I thanked him for, with a low bow.
          I bought my tofu, noodles, shiitake mushrooms and other items that New World will not usually stock.

          After that, it was over to New World at Eastridge in Mission Bay. What a difference! The clientel went from 96% Chinese to 95% Caucasian and 5% Asian. Only 10% of the customers had masks. Some had masks and gloves. The queue was long and snaked around corners like Tokyo Disneyland but without the fun. The Eastridge customers were (as Kea observed) dour and silent. What a miserable lot by comparision with the Chinese shoppers in Mt. Wellington!

          Personally, I find Pac n’ Save in Glen Innes to be the most fun supermarket to queue at. It’s a good mix of jovial chubby Polynesians and threadbare but good-natured middle-aged white dudes from St. Heliers in their short pants and worn-out jandals. It has a kind of Kiwi authenticity to it.



  15. Vicious circles can be nasty things to try and unwind, once they get started.
    With so many people in Auckland working from home and seeing redundency looming, maybe they will get used to the “slower non-consuming lifestyle.” Their income levels will be lower, and they will refrain from any major purchases. Just spending money on food and other essentials.
    In the meantime, businesses are shuttered and/or going out of business. This will make more people worry about the future. This will tend to be deflationary.
    Perhaps the deflation will be offset by all the money that the NZ government will magic into existance. The trouble with debasing your currency is that your offshore borrowing will be harder to service. Offshore banks may put up their interest rates.
    I’m not an economist, but would a “real economist” be able to make more useful predictions?

    It has been almost 33 years since the last crash in this country (1987). No Kiwi under the age of 55 would remember, and the ethnic Chinese have never known a crash. This is going to be a very nasty (but ultimately fortifying) experience for Generation Z. (The Millennials are probably stuffed.)

    Disclaimer: I have two Gen Z daughters and they are a lot tougher than I was when I was their respective ages. (They must get it from their mother.)



  16. Okay, from all accounts the tourism industry has passed through rigor mortis, embalming & has been read the Last Rites. What we haven’t heard through the wailing is exactly how the well off Kiwi is going to spend their holidays this year or next. The plebs will spend theirs in a queue outside a supermarket.

    The sands of Honolulu will beckon along with Bali but any overseas tourist magnet will stay rotten with Covid forever. Little Liam & Emma will be indelibly scarred by not visiting Disneyworld.

    So will the tourist industry adapt by becoming domestically orientated or die?



  17. Just received:

    A US Medical View
    The American Medical Association has weighed in on Trump’s Corona strategy:

    The Allergists were in favour of scratching it,
    but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
    The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it,
    but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.
    Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was labouring under a misconception,
    while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.
    Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!”
    while the Paediatrician’s said, “Oh, grow up!”
    The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness,
    while the Radiologists could see right through it.
    Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing
    and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow.
    The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would “put a whole new face on the matter.
    ” The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward,
    but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
    Anaesthesiologist’s thought the whole idea was a gas,
    and those lofty Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.
    In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.



  18. Four deaths in NZ and five in ICU. I assume that at least a couple of the ICU patients are from the same Christchurch retirement home cluster. It is entirely possible that we will learn of a couple more deaths of elderly patients with chronic co-morbidities over the next couple of days.
    Most unfortunate for their families not being able to grieve fully, due to the restrictions in place.



      • On 3 News tonight, A&E were advertising for business. They do not have enough work. Those of us good citizens sitting at home with broken bones in home made No8 wire splints have been encouraged to come in and be fixed up. They have promised to not infect us with CCP virus.



  19. A young priest is on his way to his new parish for the first time. As he approaches the town he sees a man in a paddock shagging a sheep. A few miles down the road he saw another man out in the fields frenziedly backending a sheep. Appalled at having witnessed a second case of bestiality in less than an hour, he whispered several prayers, crosses himself fervently, and drives on. Finally, on the outskirts of town, he caught sight of a man leaning against a tree and masturbating enthusiastically.

    The young priest, then and there decided grimly on the topic of his first sermon.

    “As I approached this fair town,” he began that Sunday, “I witnessed three abominations. First, on the roadside a man committing an unnatural act with a sheep. Shortly thereafter was another man in a field committing the same unnatural act with another sheep! And third, at the very outskirts of this town, a man was committing an unnatural act with himself!”

    A voice spoke up from somewhere in the congregation, “Aye, that’ll be old Paddy Fitzpatrick. He never could catch a sheep!”



  20. As the costs of regulatory responses to COVID 19 mount, we have developed a framework analyzing which measures governments should adopt, when, and for how long.

    How do we plan the next phase of the fight against COVID 19?

    As New Zealand begins its second week of lockdown, with only essential services operating, some difficult questions are emerging. The economic pain is mounting, the social impact is enormous, we need to get out of this situation as quickly as we can. How do we know which restrictions to relax first and when? Can we remove the most stringent restrictions a week early? In this thought piece we seek to develop a rigorous method to chart a path out of lockdown.

  21. Some great news, 🙂
    A death by a 1000 cuts! 🙂
    A slow bleed out. 🙂

    He urged the 64 members who have not coughed up – ….. to do so “urgently & in full”

    For some the UN demise can not come soon enough, but hopefully that gives plenty of time so that we can encourage the non payers, that it is that there are far more important things to see to, like their own citizens. 🙂

    Hey the cheque is in the mail, NOT.
    Suffer in your jocks.
    You non tax paying arse-holeians snout troughers.



  22. Will this Wuhan flu put people off the idea of public transport?

    Think about it.
    Auckland Council is spending up big on their train set, but what happens when the public makes up its mind that carriages are little more than contagion capsules? People will hold on to their cars for dear life.

    Your thoughts?



    • Well lots are working from home and now that is being well resourced and proven I imagine that plenty will want to conrinue that. Banks and screen watchers really can do that stuff from a home office.
      The Govt. should allow some incentives for people to do that.

      Time and petrol savings alone make it worth while even for say 3 or 4 days per week.

      One of my new staff stopped commuting to the mount from Pyes Pa. Saved herself at least 3/4 of an hour each day and about $50.00 per week. Thinks it is great even if she still gets caught up in the traffic at our end.



    • What is the price to travel on the bus?
      Just watch the lead guy, Spray & Walk away. 🙁
      Just a demanding type.

      Just where in NZ are you able to get the ticket to ride when the health authorities have no idea of distribution?

      And compliance is enforced while every other law may be broken to enforce it.
      I think it even seems that it has to look like a proper mask.

      ……. CNN, a number of people of color — activists, academics and ordinary Americans — expressed fears that homemade masks could exacerbate racial profiling and place blacks and Latinos in danger. ……
      ….. shortages of medical supplies have made professional-grade surgical masks all but unavailable to most Americans. …….


      So where do we fit in, and where do the “special people ” fit in.
      All having a mask, would be all traveling naked, basically all the same, no class distinction. 🙂 well maybe some 🙁

      All seems despicable bullying nazism, so I will not be going public transport.
