  1. Those bloody treacherous Aussies have shafted Cindys narritive,they’ve managed to have a better outcome with the Coronavirus than her without shutting their economy down completely.
    We can safely assume that someone has sidled up to the princess and said “just cut it out the people aren’t listening anymore” and hopefully she will take note and stop the farcical daily early election campaigning.
    what is needed now for the recovery of our economy is not going to come out of this COL and I doubt the Nats could do any better and that is the problem, those 120 fair weather politicians will spend more time sniping and blaming each other than trying to fix the actual problems we face.
    They’ve got together and decided that someone has to make a stand against the filthy CCP and they’ve kicked the old arthritic dog sleeping in the corner (Peters) He’s woken with a hangover and come out with a toothless attack on Xi Jinpings disgusting response to the virus and then crawled back into his corner and gone back to sleep.
    Aredern has said nothing and her media friends aren’t asking her ,its a disgrace the Australian media and politicians have ripped the CCP a new arsehole,OURS ??? CRICKETS.

    • I’ve been watching what is happening in Australia. They have had a change in their curve; their cases are starting to trend upwards. Watch for that being seized on by our media.

      Of course, people will die from this. It’s expected.

    • Komata,yes it’s safe to say that when our entire media are biased to the left we actually don’t have any media at all.
      By the time the 50 million is spent (around election time) our media will be sitting in dinghies down at the viaduct basin to report daily how far Cindy walked on the harbor that day.

  3. The day that cindy’s transparent govt Died.

    Government escalates stoush over lockdown legal advice, refers National leader Simon Bridges to the privileges committee.
    The Government has escalated a stoush with National leader Simon Bridges over the legal advice behind the coronavirus lockdown, promising to refer him to a high-powered parliamentary committee.

    Attorney-General David Parker on Friday responded to an attempt by Bridges, as chair of the Epidemic Response Select Committee, to summons high-ranking government officials and force them to hand over the Government’s Crown Law advise on lockdown.

    Parker promised to refer Bridges’ efforts to parliament’s privileges committee over the “constitutional outrage”, saying the epidemic response committee had no power to force the Government to waive its legal privilege over advice.

    Bridges in return says Parker has thrown up a “smokescreen” to dodge public accountability in a way that shows the Government knows the lockdown was unlawful.
    He said the Crown Law advice confirmed the legality but, due to the lawfulness of the lockdown being challenged in court, he declined to go into greater detail.

    The court challenge of the lockdown claims that Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield was unable to order the whole country to quarantine under law.

    Parker said the Health Act allowed Bloomfield to do this, and it was “no stretch of language” to order the quarantine of the whole country.

    “I will be asking the Speaker of the House to refer the matter to the Privileges Committee to consider.”
    The Privileges Committee is a parliamentary select committee that investigates allegations that Parliament’s rules have been breached, or that an MP has acted in contempt of the House. It is usually chaired by the Attorney-General.

    Will Trevor refuse to allow this or will he behave in his usual biased manner?

    • This is a disgrace and an affront to democracy in NZ. Bridges played a canny hand refusing the SG’s confidential briefing as he knew he’d be gagged.

      However a privileges complaint against him will only serve to give this issue and Bridges himself, media oxygen all the while putting the spotlight on the illegal actions of this government especially at a time when the mood of the nation is shifting palpably against St Jacinda of the Oppressors.

  4. ‘Strict criteria’ stops banks from helping businesses under government-backed scheme
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/05/strict-criteria-stops-banks-from-helping-businesses-under-government-backed-scheme.html

    Banks have loaned just $23 million to smaller businesses under a $6.25 billion government-backed scheme, disappointing economists.

    The money has gone to 174 struggling businesses through nine banks, according to the New Zealand Bankers’ Association.

    “Ouch, that’s disappointing,” economist Shamubeel Eaqub says. “It should be in the billions.”

    The Business Finance Guarantee Scheme allows banks to loan up to $500,000 to businesses impacted by COVID-19, with the Government promising to pay 80 percent of any defaults.

      He owns industrial properties around Auckland and is already cutting the businesses rents by 30% just to keep his buildings occupied “If I don’t do this I doubt I’ll have anyone in the building for two to three years”
      that is a frightening scenario for a property owner, he’s only done it when tenants have said they won’t be able to pay the rent.

      But make sure you also read some of the criticism of Planet of the Humans. I’ve found Ars Technica’s coverage interesting.

      It’s worth reading both sides of that story and deciding what you believe based on a broader perspective.

        I of course view many things different than Moore, especially in regard capitalism.

  8. Queen Elizabeth thankful for ‘strength and courage’ of UK, Commonwealth and allies in VE Day message

    Queen Elizabeth II has broadcast her VE Day message exactly 75 years after her father, King George VI, made his historic broadcast as World War II ended in Europe.

    Victory in Europe Day, or VE Day, celebrates the end of World War II in Europe following the Allies’ formal acceptance of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender on May 8, 1945.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/world/queen-elizabeth-thankful-strength-and-courage-uk-commonwealth-allies-in-ve-day-message

    “We should, and will, remember them. As I now reflect on my father’s words, and the joyous celebrations which some of us experienced first-hand, I am thankful for the strength and courage that the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and all our allies displayed.”

    The UK monarch said the wartime generation knew that the best way to honour those who did not return from the war was to “ensure that it didn’t happen again”.

  9. Hamilton council takes private land for Peacockes subdivision project without paying

    The council needs it to widen the road to make way for an 8000-house subdivision in the area, a 30-year project granted a $180 million, 10-year interest-free loan under the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund and supported by $110 million in NZ Transport Agency subsidies.

    Robinson and Chang have been offered $1 by the council for a portion of their land big enough to be a lifestyle block on its own and, despite the land’s potential worth of half a million dollars on the open market.
    Council strategic development manager Andrew Parsons says the council has worked with expert planners and lawyers to ensure the Public Works Act, 1981 has been followed.

    The Act provides for the payment of compensation for losses arising from the acquisition of land by the Crown and its authorities.

    Parsons says what the landowner chose to do with the property in the future is not a matter for the council and outside the scope of the Act.

    He added that the cost of subdivision was factored into the valuation.

    “The valuation shows the landowner has benefited from an increase in the value as a result of the public works.

    “In this case, that independent valuation has determined the owners will receive an increase in their asset value of $282,500 due to the works done by the council, regardless of what they choose to do in the future.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12325537&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=nzh_fb&fbclid=IwAR3n5rtAUl2RFjYXnl2v2O9R0nJvjYESo7S42dkRIYb9ke1DjPfLebMf9Jw

    so apparently if the Council does a subdivision it can use its powers to estimate what you proerrty will be worth in the future. Using that they can consicate your land.
    Private developers of course would have to pay.

    Bad stuff.

  10. Things are getting strange inside Cindy’s head

    Well good on NZ Herald (again) and good on Tova, they have reported on the leak to them of a seriously peculiar memo that the PM has issued effectively muzzling all of Cabinet in relation to the latest of the COL’s usual cynical Friday document drop. (Remember this is the “Most Open and Transparent Government EVAH!”)

    Apparently, (even though the opposite is increasingly obviously true), Cindy thinks there is no need for Ministers to have to explain government decisions – because Cindy asserts there is “no real need to defend” actions “Because the public have confidence in what has been achieved and what the Govt is doing”.

    This is just plain delusional and a simple outright lie from the most dishonest PM this country has ever had. Even the usually fawning hordes on FB are turning against Jacinda, two weeks ago, there was wall to wall praise and defence for stoopid Cindy in response to every single criticism from Mike Hosking. Today I saw one (just one) of Mike’s commenter trying the “We’re lucky to have Jacinda as our saviour” line and there were 172 “fuck off you delusional idiot” responses inside of an hour.

    We’ve always heard that stoopid Cindy is well known for being extremely mentally fragile. Clearly the poor wee poppet has utterly lost the plot and combined with the seriously rank advice she’s getting from within her office with that cabal of nasty, hard-faced lesbians she surrounds herself with.

    Even drop-kick Labour Ministers will not like being told they have to stay quiet unless Cindy gives them a permission slip or pre-approves their written talking points. Obviously this is a response to the train wreck Kelvin Davies interview with Paul Henry – but to put such ill-advised diktats in writing and widely circulating it is just plain idiotic. I think Cindy has lost touch with the fact that she isn’t there because of respect among the caucus, she is only there because the caucus just wanted to be able to be in government with all the freedom and authority that comes with being King or Queen in a portfolio. If Cindy thinks she is going to be able to take the crayons away from that nest of vipers with impunity – she has lost her mind. They tolerated her because she had some electoral appeal, now that the jig is up and Cindy thinks she’s “da boss of da idiots”they are going to rip her a new asshole.

    I don’t think I’ve seen any politician come unhinged as quickly as it looks Cindy is. If I wasn’t so utterly sick to my stomach at the merest mention of her – I’d almost feel sorry for her.

    Almost.

  11. Is the Government’s plan for tourism bonkers and divorced (again) from reality

    I’ve been reflecting on the car-crash Kelvin Davies interview with Paul Henry. On the one hand I feel sad, putting someone who just isn’t up to it in front of Paul Henry is just plain evil. The way that interview played out was so obvious, Kelvin is not even at the calibre one would expect from a third-rate political research assistant. He isn’t on top of his portfolio, he’s not a quick thinker, he’s not a skilled debater – he is the epitome of a left wing diversity appointment – the only thing that counts is his ethnicity (it most certainly isn’t his overall capability).

    However, a large part of the problem Kelvin suffered is that the idea he is trying to sell is (I think) just plain bonkers.

    I put myself in the position of someone who is going to have to cancel my holiday of a lifetime this year (maybe a trip around Europe with a stopover in Hawaii on the way back for some sun) and I just can’t see myself saying
    “Oh well Cindy fucked everything up – I’ll just go to Gissy for 6 weeks it’ll be just the same as Paris in the spring”
    It’s just not a credible scenario! I’m going to leave the cash in the bank and I’m going to stay home and decorate the house instead – I’m just going to wait until this hoax is over and then I’m going to do what I wanted to do anyway! I’m not going to settle for going somewhere that I can go to anytime I want!

    Similarly with an annual holiday to the Gold Coast with the kids – the whole point of getting away to another country is …. (getting away to another fucking country). I just don’t see enough of us converting an overseas trip to something just down the road to make a difference to the domestic tourism industry.

    But the real problem with this scenario is that it presumes that Kiwis are going to be able to spend anything like as much as tourists do when they turn up here and are forced to pay through the nose tourist prices for some pretty ordinary value entertainment. But Kelvin seems to forget that his boss – stoopid Cindy – has destroyed the NZ economy. Unemployed people don’t do expensive holidays. Business owners who can’t afford to keep their businesses running, don’t do expensive holidays. The few people left in employment will be paying massively more tax every year due to the tax rises that will be announced next week in the budget, when you are over-taxed you don’t do expensive holidays. Landlords who are forced to burden ever-increasing compliance costs and have to provide a home for tenants who aren’t paying rent, don’t do expensive holidays!

    Am I making sense, please indicate by either:
    If you think I’m right and you won’t even be thinking about spending heaps on a NZ holiday in the coming year – please UpTick.

    If you think I’m wrong and of course, Kiwis will splash out big time and are going to be able to afford (or want) to pay for a domestic holiday – please DownTick.

    • On the nzcma facebook page they are discussing how motor home members should not avail themselves of Freedom camping sites and instead should help struggling camp grounds by staying in them. After last years denial of most of these camping grounds of the option they had of giving the nzmca members a discount (upwards of 90,000 members), let them reap what they have sown. They were too greedy in thinking they can do without the patronage of this group.
      Well how times change. If there is one group of customers who have the funds, the time and the options of where they spend their money, it would be this group.

      • I think there are a lot of chickens like this one that are going to come home to roost – a lot of domestic tourism options have been gradually closed off to Kiwis as domestic operators have (quite sensibly) focussed on the big dollars available from ripping off overseas tourists. It was a winning strategy so long as we didn’t lose overseas tourists (which again was a reasonable assumption – pre-Cindy). Unfortunately our amazing tourist industry is going to learn about the old saying “Never kick anyone when you are on the way up the ladder, because they’ll kick you when you are on the way down”.

        Don’t get me wrong – I’m not shitting on the Tourism industry – it’s just that I think they could have had a bit more of an eye to retaining domestic tourist customers than they did.

        The answer of course is for our government to grow the fuck up and admit that the mortality rate is just about the same as the ‘flu, mimic Sweden’s approach (take extreme precautions to protect the elderly and the vulnerable and carry on as normal with some sensible public hygiene education) and get back to normal as fast as possible) but of course Reichsfuhrer Cindy wouldn’t like that at all.

      • As a caravan owner I consider the biggest turnoff isn’t overseas tourists staying in camping grounds. Rather it’s the unwashed, unemployed no-hopers whose presence downgrades facilities to the point where parking up on the side of the road seems a safer, quieter & less smelly alternative.

        Most of the NZMCA assn sites are chockful of busy-bodying, tight arsed old moaners so certain that they know the “right way” that they should all stand for parliament. There are still plenty of private & council owned well run camping grounds which deserve to be patronised.

        He openly hates on white people but his mother in white; his wife is white (not an arranged marriage) so his kids are predominantly white .
        He does not know which way is up.

    • I love pointing this out to lunatic leftists – ie that Obama is several orders of magnitude worse than Nixon was.

      The Nixon scenario: His re-election campaign had a bunch of gung-ho idiots who went off on their own bat to steal some dirt on the DNC, without Nixon’s knowledge. His stupid mistake was to think he could cover it up – he should have just disavowed them and thrown the book at them (Cindy take note of this whenever one of your minions fucks up)

      The Obama scenario. He directed the most powerful state security organs to bring down an opposition party candidate by any and every corrupt means open to them – and (as per the Strozk/Page texts) – he wanted to be kept fully briefed on it on a play by play basis. So much so that Deputy AG Yates found out from Obama about the Flynn conversation with the Russian (the innocent one that the FBI spun up into a Brady Act violation to get at Gen Flynn)..

      I love watching the mental contortions that lunatic leftists go through as they try to deny that Obama was worse than Nixon. They start to gape like goldfish out of water – reminds me of all the fun I used have pulling the wings off of flies when I was a kid.

      • Do you think Obama’s “badness” could have anything to do with the fact that he is Kenyan? I only ask because Kenyan politicians as well as being among the highest paid in the world are also among the most corrupt in the whole of Africa and there is some very serious competition there.
        Now if you are inclined to call me a racist for daring to ask such a question I should point out that I simply don’t care and am, further more, quite proud of being a race realist.

    Her mum responded, “Cindy, they just wanted to see your panties!”
    Cindy replied, “See Mum, I was smart, I took them off!”

  15. I wonder if the unstable one has seen this yet?

    “Sweden’s former top virus expert has launched a blistering defence of the country’s coronavirus strategy, saying that lockdowns are merely delaying an inevitable surge in cases and deaths – not preventing it.
    Johan Giesecke says attempts to stop the spread of the disease are ‘futile’ because everyone is likely to be exposed to it before a treatment can be found, meaning all countries will end up in a similar position regardless of what measures they took.”

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/05/james-shaw-defends-gag-on-ministers-talking-about-covid-19-documents.html

    “It is really important in a time of crisis that the Government speaks with one voice, and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been that voice, and I think it’s appropriate that she continues to be that voice.”

    He said it was “entirely appropriate” considering the scale of the COVID-19 crisis, which he compared to World War II and the Great Depression.

    “I don’t think there’s anything strange about that at all.”

    “Most open and transparent Government ever,” National deputy leader Paula Bennett tweeted, mocking a commitment Ardern made in 2017 when she took the reins.

    ** The authors of the Imperial College Model shared their findings with the White House Coronavirus task force in early March
    ** Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx then met with President Trump privately and urged him to shut down the US economy and destroy the record Trump economy
    ** A new critique of the Imperial College Model finds the study is “completely unusable for scientific purposes” — The study is a sham

    Economist and chief executive of Business NZ, Kirk Hope says that businesses must be allowed to reopen on Monday.

    In a statement, he said “every day counts”.

    “The longer they stay closed, the more they risk losing everything. Many enterprises are living in fear of not being able to reopen, while others fear reopening in an economy that’s been closed so long it can no longer sustain their business.”

  19. Mental health sector boosted by $3.5 million Government investment

    Groups who support vulnerable people in the mental health and wellbeing sector will be getting extra support from the Government with a $3.5 million funding boost as some New Zealanders struggle through the Covid-19 lockdown.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/mental-health-sector-boosted-3-5-million-government-investment-amid-lockdown

    “In addition to the mental health and wellbeing support tools we launched recently for all Kiwis, extra support is being given to people who are vulnerable or more at risk. That boost has already made a significant difference,” Mr Clark said.

    The news comes after the Government announced free mental health and addiction services will be made available to 1.5 million New Zealanders by the middle of the year.

    • Strange they are always offering more money to mental health Waikato Girl, but do they actually give the money to them? If so it’s a shame they cannot improve the mental health of so many, as it never seems to make the situation any better. But then take into account the fact they have locked us all up for months with no reason at all so hardly surprising I suppose that people are going stir crazy. Bastards. God I hate this col, I did not think it was possible for me to hate them any more than I did but I have found new ways of hating that I never knew I had.

      They still have $452,000,000 left to spend.

There are a gazillion little clubs, groups, societies and foundations all with their own overpaid executives, offices with wall to wall carpet, and sign-written vehicles, that grow exponentially every time a new allocation is made.
        What we don’t get is more trained counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists competent to work on the correct side of the desk, or more beds for people who shouldn’t be in the community for their own sake and the safety of others.
        Frankly, so long as we have Rev Clark and his ilk running Vote:Health nothing will change in mental health or any other specialty.

  20. DP @ 8.25 talks about a change in the FB comments. I mentioned this to my wife and she said she had seen a FB page about Bridges asking Ardern in Parliament about whether taxes would be increased to which she gave a fudged, BS answer to Bridges.
    She said there were about 1000 cmments supporting Ardern saying of course taxes would have to increase.

    This got me thinking about these FB comments.(NB I do not do FB so I’m not 100% sure of the detail of how it works).

    Do you think this this is possible? The Labour Party contact say 5000 “rusted on” supporters and say if you want to help the Government / Labour Party/Ardern you can be part of our FB army. When an issue comes up we will send you an email or text alerting you to it and we will give you ideas on how to respond to it. You spend just a few minutes supporting the party with your reply on FB

    So in this case, there were 1000 replies which gives the impression Ardern/ Govt has this massive support but in reality it is just a little “gang of activists”

    Does that make sense?

    • I’m not on that either Ross, but yes that is more than plausible for sure.

      And then there are those that don’t have to pay said taxes at all let alone foot the increase coming. And they will also be piling on in glee, easily saying such words, it’s just a throwaway line for them after all.

      It’s a sick joke. Wait till the money runs out and there aren’t enough to tax payers left to provide.

      Then they will get exactly what they want.

      And they’ll get it fucking good, and they will get it fucking hard.

    “Latus Dextro
    May 9, 2020 at 7:13 am · Reply
    The trajectory of the pandemic is in all cases declining. Review the ‘New Normal‘ at Tony Heller.
    Quarantining the healthy is not science, microbiology or the established tenets of public health. Quarantine the sick, isolate cases, protect the vulnerable, and trace, test, test, test. No testing in New Zealand unless you crawl into the doctors office or A&E with coryza, anosmia, pyrexia, sore throat, headache, cough, myalgia, possibly dyspnoea (non specific symptoms of seasonal ‘flu) … and demand it.

    No testing means no empirical knowledge of a virus whose chief feature is high transmission (Ro:5.7) (Sanche et al. 2020) and in which 86% cases are undocumented (Li et al. 2020). The most successful and imperilled country Taiwan, oddly absent from the graphs above also has a functioning economy at a loss of 0.3 people per million. Sweden will have gone a long way down the track to acquire herd immunity (requires 82% population exposed) and more importantly, not killed its economy. Australia is doing better than NZ, with less economic destitution pro rata and the same death rate per million population of 4. (today – 09/05 -the global average death rate per million is 34.52 – Italy runs at 500 and USA at 237, UK at 460, Brazil at 45, France at 402, Ireland at 289, Japan and S.Korea both at 5). In essence the USA is comprised of 50 countries. Treat the USA as one would the EU! The data per State may be seen here.

    New Zealand is a terminally sick economic basket case with the neo-Marxist corporatist globalist claws of Comrade Princess Rainbow Bubbles of Devastating Kindness driven into it like nails into a coffin, a country locked down for an indeterminate period, under a totalitarian government that has not stated when it intends to relinquish its ‘emergency powers’ and return the country to what passes for usual democratic process, aided and abetted by a one sided, one eyed Leftist media. The PM and the Government refuse to answer probing question. I have written twice to the PM and Minister of Health to no avail. Next stop, as many are doing, questions under the FOI Act.
    It also turns our that the NZ Government and police acted illegally for the first two weeks of their imposed lockdown. This is under judicial review. They knew it as did the NZ AG, but chose to be ‘economical’ with the truth, while local gangs and Maori power crazed thugs imposed private illegal road blocks. This is not a good place to be, not at all. Nor will it be a good place to be in the coming months when the ‘second’ wave of catastrophe arises as job losses, hopelessness, and despair make their presence felt. Still, it’s a dry run for the Green Death and may give the sheeple pause for thought. “

    Poor guy has been trying to get back to see his terminally ill wife who has taken a turn and now has hours to live. Two appeals to the MoH and once again, Bloomfield’s hollow words of “compassion” ringing like the echo in Jacinda’s head.

    Here’s the crunch. All of NZ’s main hospitals have supplies of quick test kits for Covid-19. They could literally test this guy and clear him to travel in an hour. What a disgrace this government and its organs are. Let’s hope the backlash against them is as savage as their lack of decency and transparency.

  25. I want to buy a specific book for my grandson. I see there are queues for service at Noel Leeming and Mitre 10 and the chemist where you shout your requirements to someone on the other side of the door obstruction, so I meandered into town to see if Whitcoulls had the door open a crack. Nope, not safe evidently.
    So I decided to support the cafe a couple of doors down who were battling for existence.
    The order was shouted and the contactless payment executed before I was directed to the contact register where I was required to record my name and phone number on a sheet. Really? I hadn’t been in contact with anyone.
    No point in arguing, so I complied, but no one will ever decipher my suddenly poor handwriting.
    Will anyone challenge the legitimacy of having a register of personal details open for all to see?
    There was a time I was entitled to some privacy.

        As of now we do not have a rating for NZ.
        Have your say viewing numbers are still about the same as 5 months ago.

        • KB still has a lot of commenters despite most despising being trolled by a moderator.
          The reason I think, is that DPF posts on different subjects each day whereas posting here is driven by the pics sometimes with a post, usually a post not originating within NZ.
          So the posts on KB relate to the locals. Not saying the post we have are wrong, just not as relevant to many as DPF’s seem tp be to commenters..
          The big point of difference of course is our view of things Trump and our view of the Freedoms that we should have compared with DPF’s view of Trump and his more lefty views of many things. NZ afterall is basically socilalist and conforms to the views of that sort. It’s John Keys middle NZ. Oh and of course the National Party.
          Don’t go there often now but when I do there is usually some good reading. Aftyer being on there for 10 years can’t be bothered signing up so don’t comment much. Saves me a shit load of time. FWIW.

    Remember Andrew Coster promising that this will cease when we go down to level 2

    This is utter bullshit and a lie as Maori have no intention of pulling back after we hit 2 and have confirmed this.

    I am so ashamed and disgusted with Police HQ who appear to be intent on ignoring advice from Crown Law.
