    • Be careful for what you wish, Viking. An election now would see #commsgirl #commygirl romp home. The gloss is starting to wear off though. Her self-promotion party is about to turn into an economic/humanitarian hang-over. I think September sill do fine.

  1. I note that Ed supplies the date as part of the heading for each new post.

    I wonder if it would be possible to include info on what day it is. Some of us veterans of lockdown are getting a little confused.

        It’s in the section that has gadgets to help you put your socks on as well.

      • Fatherinlaw retired at 60, he’s 97 now and for some reason he always went on about the weekend. Once you are retired there is no difference between days. Yes it was different in the old days of friday night shopping and closed for weekends, but not today shopping 7 days.

    • No, that can’t be correct WG.
      Our all-knowing Prime Minister said we’re 75% back to work since she granted us a Level 3 release, so once the rest of our people are back to work under Level 2 we’ll be just dandy.

        1. institute a fear campaign
        2. promote compliant govt paid media
        3. dear leader as only voice of ALL knowledge
        4. collapse the economy
        5. impose many tax increases on idle rich self-employed
        6. harass and fine anyone who doesn’t fall into line

  2. I wonder whether the expert on CORID-19 will ask this expert about his qualifications concerning Coronavirus.
    New Zealand faces years of quarantines, Swedish Expert says.
    Sweden’s former top virus expert says lockdowns are just one way of delaying the inevitable and warns New Zealand could face years of quarantining even after wiping out COVID-19.
    Johan Giesecke has defended his country’s Coronavirus strategy saying lockdowns do not prevent surges in case or death but merely delay them.

    • This interview is worth watching, it is from a couple of weeks ago and I may have posted it here before https://www.bitchute.com/video/JKeM3LW95niW/

      An interview yesterday on German TV with Dr Giesecke which went viral was quickly pulled from You Tube because, as you may already know, YT, shamefully, is banning any videos on Covid-19 that do not adhere to the WHO line.
      This from the Sun watch the video: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11568244/uk-coronavirus-lockdown-futile-hasnt-saved-lives/

      Note that Sweden’s current chief epidemiologist, Anders Tegnell, was appointed by Dr Giesecke.

      And from Wikipedia.
      Johan Giesecke (born 9 September 1949) is a Swedish physician and Professor Emeritus at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.[1]
      Giesecke was born in Stockholm. In 1979, he defended his thesis, On The Molecular Structure Of Dopaminergic Substances, at the Karolinska Institute.[2] He trained as an infectious disease clinician and worked with AIDS patients during the 1980’s. Giesecke received an MSc in epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 1992, after which he worked as a Senior Lecturer at the school.
      From 1995 to 2005, Giesecke served as state epidemiologist of Sweden. During a one-year sabbatical 1999-2000 he led a group at the World Health Organization working on the revision of the International Health Regulations. After this, he was Chief Scientist at the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control from 2005 to 2014. As of 2020, Giesecke is a member of the Strategic and Technical Advisory Group for Infectious Hazards of the World Health Organization,[3] and also works as an advisor to the Public Health Agency of Sweden during the COVID-19 pandemic in Sweden.[4]

    Pilots made redundant call on Government for tax relief

    Pilots made redundant in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak say the Government needs to consider tax relief for many like them who cannot access the wage subsidy nor the benefit, in a market where there are fewer jobs and higher unemployment.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/pilots-made-redundant-call-government-tax-relief?auto=6153668869001

    “I’ve applied for a lot of different jobs but there’s not a lot out there. I’m grateful to have a part-time job stacking shelves at New World and delivering food for Pizza Hut and KFC.

    “The difficult thing for a lot of people is there is no future for them in New Zealand for a long time and employers look at you as not having transferable skills.”

    However, he is worried about other colleagues who have just bought homes and tens of thousands of people who are going to lose their jobs in the coming months.

    • In among all this the ‘public servants’ are anything but.

      They are NOT serving the public.
      They are serving the political agenda of ArDoom.

      The Ministry of Health is out of control with lies.
      Bloomfield is more like Ernst Blofeld- the villain in Bond books/movie.
      He is not the saintly man the lying filth media present, but more like a British public servant that ultimately led to the collapse of Britain as a superpower.
      Ashley Blofeld is the dogmatic remote-from-the-people public servant you see in ‘Yes Minister’.

      The poo lice force is out of control and acting illegally (ultra vires)
      The Treasury is publicly releasing bullshit numbers way understating reality.

      We are not being served by the ‘not our public servants’
      I am pleased to see court cases piling up against them.
      I trust we see some decent law rulings coming from judges.

      These is little standing between us – the great unwashed -and disaster
      A third of teachers don’t even want to work; but still get full pay
      Compare and contrast with the private sector- most want to work, even if it is not full pay.

      The cops are out of control but this is nothing new.
      The media are our complete enemy and just the press dept for the PMs office and have been for nearly three years now.

      It is time for civil disobedience.

  5. The Punishment Budget 2020 – first step towards Communism

    This coming Thursday is a very big day for the Coalition of Losers who run the government. If there is a God in heaven above, this very well may be the last chance they have to stamp their destructive brand of Marxist economic vandalism on the legislative landscape of New Zealand.

    They still have a lot of class enemies, kulaks who need to be ground down under the iron boot heel of globalist oppression. Consequently, I think that Budget 2020 is going to be a “go for broke” punishment budget focussing on the twin objectives of:
    – bringing in as many ultra far-left socialist wet dream objectives
    and
    – revenge initiatives crushing the soul out of anyone who is doing anything constructive for the economy and delivering on the Alinsky wasteland necessary for the introduction of a Marxist totalitarian state

    Under wet dream objectives, I think we’re going to see insane things along the lines of:
    – a universal basic income brought in (it is THE Holy Grail of Marxists, it fundamentally undercuts capitalism. It’s a double-headed monster a) to pay for the UBI, you have to ramp up taxes to such a ridiculous level that productive activity in the economy is snuffed out and b) when a subsistence-level existence is possible without having to work, why would you try to get ahead when punitive taxation extinguishes the incentives for doing so)
    – funding increase for hate speech policing
    – funding increase for gun seizures (especially for anyone found guilty of hate speech)
    – punitive new (but trust us only temporary) carbon emitter costs
    – vast expenditure on Green White Elephant infrastructure projects (cycleways that no one will use, 1000s of electric vehicle charging stations that will be obsolete inside of a decade when fuel cell technology matures, light rail projects that will never be completed, Port relocations away from hubs to unviable rural locations, uneconomic renewable energy projects that will triple domestic heating bills)
    – state funding for all political parties who polled over 5% in the 2017 election – but capped for any parties polling over 40%
    – tripling of the refugee quota and removing Immigration NZ’s role in assessing refugees, ceding that to the UN.

    Revenge Initiatives, in my worst nightmares I imagine:
    – a (temporary – see Tui ad) Capital Gains Tax (just to tide us over and you know “to be fair and kind to those that don’t have”)
    – an increase in GST to 20%
    – an increase in the top rate of tax to 60% (“honestly it’ll just be temporary – it’s to make sure those that are doing well pay their fair share”)
    – the introduction of an inheritance tax
    – a 40% tax on the movement of any funds, assets or investment offshore (to prevent the usual brain drain that accompanies the worst excesses of socialist tax and spend vandalism)
    – a suite of highly punitive measures targetting landlords (3 year rent freezes on private rental properties, ability for tenants to obtain 6 month rent payment ‘holidays’, phasing out of fixed-term tenancies by the end of 2020, removal of the need to pay bonds, increasing fines for landlords failing to meet statutory requirements defaulting on these fines will allow the government to seize the property in question and add to the social housing portfolio etc)
    – the creation of a “Food Justice Commission” to make decisions on the fair allocation of food across society

    Anyone who is productively contributing to the economy right now needs to be aware of this, Thursday is going to be brutal. Cindy has freed herself from any of the usual fiscal prudence controls right up to 31 August this year. Imagine your average left wing student activist after you give her the keys to the bank and you say “For the next 4 months you can spend what you like, no consequences” – that’s what we’ve got in charge of the nation’s finances. I may not have the details exactly right in my predictions above, but the general madness and destructive effect of whatever comes out will be of that nature.

    It’s fucking terrifying!

    • I think you are being unduly pessimistic. This is election year and with the drunken dwarf and his followers staring down the gun of oblivion, they will not allow anything too drastic from the socialists.
      Look at the trumpet blowing from him when the socialists backed down last time over the CGT. Cindy knew she didn’t have the numbers then, and she will still not have the numbers now.

      • I think you are optimistic, Ed.

        Winston is superfluous. Their internal polling shows them at 65% or whatever the preferred Prime Minister stakes are and you can bet they’ll have counted the seats based off that. With Green Party support and them throwing un-controlled spending at the masses to buy votes and soften the economic impact they wouldn’t need Winston Peters.

        Jacinda Ardern has a firm grasp on our media and with the budget lockout now excluding anybody except state sanctioned, selected members of the media I think they are preparing to sell us the Motherland of all budgets. And their cult will buy into it with ease, because it’s only kind when Jacinda does it, when it doesn’t break any of her rules and whatever she says it the one true word.

      • Nicole should get involved more in politics. She has been an outstanding ambassador for the firearms community over the last year. She’s extremely knowledgeable and maintains her calm, polite demeanor in trying circumstances. Despite how busy she obviously is, I received a personal, hand-written card from her thanking me for a donation to COLFO. She should stand for ACT. I’d vote for her.

  6. I just posted DP’s post in the UK so by way of return here’s a post from the UK”

    Carvetii • a minute ago
    Batflu newsflash.

    Wife was chatting to a neighbour, who works at the local hospital.
    1. The wards are empty.
    2. Apparently only 3% or so of Cumbrians have had batflu. However, when they tested the hospital staff, loads of them tested positive, even though they were adamant they’d never had it.
    3. If we don’t spread it to each other now, the next peak will be October ish, when the hospitals really don’t want to be dealing with batflu, cos they’ll be ramping up for other seasonal lurgy.

    So, in summary, we’ve probably already had it. If not, we need to get it now, not later.

    • I doubt that the decimal point is in the right place for the % numbers, and may also need a zero or 2

      I see that many people’s calculators, are not allowing for this or are the person is not putting the right number of zero’s that is the total population.

      It is more than possible that a hospital, like a rest home may have a high number of staff testing +ive., because they deal with the sick CCP virus patients.

  7. The COL brings back taxpayer funded PEP work schemes but call it employment under the conservation umbrella. Going into a recession it is better to have people employed instead of getting too comfortable on the couch.

    Biosecurity, conservation jobs for 160 redeployed workers to rebuild regional economy
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2020/05/biosecurity-conservation-jobs-for-160-redeployed-workers-to-rebuild-regional-economy.html

    The new biosecurity projects, located in Northland, East Coast, Hawke’s Bay and Canterbury, are part of the Government’s $100 million redeployment support package, announced in March. The projects will tackle waterways, ecosystems and the invasive weed, wilding pines – also known as New Zealand’s number one pest – which pose a $4.6 billion threat to farmland.

    • The unholy trifecta!

      -high unemployment
      -Reduced Govt tax income from all sources
      -Increasing Govt (taxpayer and future taxpayer) Debt

      At college my friend’s father explained his generation/cohort (B. 1925-1935).
      This man worked for the Bank. He did not particularly enjoy it but it was a job.
      With time served he became a Bank branch manager for the last 15 years of his career.
      The kids from the depression learnt.
      The idea was get work in ‘The Government’ or somewhere safe like a bank.
      These were the people near the end of their careers about the time R Douglas decided the public service was too large.

      He (friends father) explained about jobs as safety over personal reward.
      I think we are facing the same again.
      The public servants will not be laid off.
      They have it sweet. Full pay whether working or not at present and no threat of redundancy.
      The private sector (ultimately, the taxpayers) have neither full income prospects nor safety from redundancy.

      Right now the economy is like driving behind a vehicle that is wobbling and the rear axle is about to break.
      The snapping axle and the carnage that follows is not far away.

      There is no-one in the Top nine in Cabinet who have worked in the private sector.
      They don’t understand, and worse, they don’t care.
      With a gag order they can’t comment either.

      Before 1984 and Roger Douglas changes the Railways and similar soaked up a lot of those who would be unemployed.
      Given the high personal tax rates the Govt gets a lot of it back anyway and it gives people dignity.
      It is the same idea as the current extra $25 a week to benes but not to taxpayers.
      The top personal tax rate was 66% – 66 cents in every dollar- earned.
      The govt got most of it back.
      In the UK at the time it was top rate of 90%.

      The irony here is with PEP schemes etc this govt is going to follow Muldoon economics to the T
      Whilst no doubt calling him a bad blue man or something.
      Just as ArDoom follows most medical/CV19 moves by Trump but media calls him the bad orange man.
      Back to 1975.

      • When Key announced a few years back National was cutting the public service numbers my sister’s ex husband was made redundant. He was a policy wonk advising a govt minister. He received his redundancy for 30 odd years of service then sat at home as he was too arrogant to lower himself to work in anything beneath his previous status. Six months later his department reinstated him in his previous position as nobody had been trained in his particular field of knowledge. He is currently still employed in the same taxpayer funded position even though he is fast approaching 70 years old and they will probably have to cart him out feet first. I wonder if the department have trained anyone to replace him yet?

        This senario would never be allowed to happen in the private sector.

  8. Thanks for your thoughts Diff. It’s very sobering to think that you may not be far off the mark at all.

    How will the sheeple respond? I could easily envisage this;
    There will be dancing in the streets, possibly even organised gatherings of Cindy worship. Signs held high, exalting the chosen one. Celebrations splashed across all MSM, heralding the New Way. Talking heads will gush over the empathy and kindness of our PriNZess. UBI will be welcomed with open arms, the poverdy problem finally solved!

    Fast forward several months. There’s no money left. The sheeple are confused. Cindy has now left, gone on to be the saviour of all the world at the UN.
    Fuel is $2200 a litre. A loaf of bread is double that price.
    Looting, home invasions and all violent crime is rampant and out of control. Armed forces roam the streets. The maori have succeeded in isolated areas, in gaining and holding their own militant controls, left untouched by the new Stasi.
    Political dissidents, including all active YSB members are now working feverishly away on the new rail lines and cycle ways. Daily porridge rations are enough for the task, with replacement numbers high enough to allow for the attrition rate.
    Some of the sheeple are starving, actually for real starving. Cats and dogs become staple foods.
    Livestock only still present on heavily armed government owned land, taken by new decree for the good of the Socialistic Republic of Aotearoastan.
    Electricity is rationed by government, everyone gets an hour a day at staggered times. There is limited knowledge of what is happening at a national level, with the daily official broadcast of propaganda giving all the facts the sheeple are deemed to need.
    Everyone knows stories of people who have taken to the ocean to escape, nobody knows how they fared. People are dissappeared in the night.
    Although suicide is the new leading cause of death, Pravda news tells the sheeple that Covid is still rampantly killing the good citizenry, and that Level 5 lockdown is for our own good. Compliance is almost total.
    The new barcode on the forearm allows for the picking up of rations from the Unimog that passes the gate every other day. The barcode must confirm your vaccination status.

    The fisherman dies, rumours persist amongst the sheeple, but it is officially another Covid fatality.
    Bill Gates and Cindy have a love child and many believe that this is indeed the second coming of Christ. The sheeple hope and pray for the rumoured formation of a new Global Government to come to pass, knowing that this will save mankind from the ever present threats of climate change and Covid.

    Finally, the sheeple have got what they wanted. And they’ve got it fucking good, and they’ve got it fucking hard.

    Will we rise

    • Thank you Floyd, ANOTHER amazingly good writer here. I think hope you’re exaggerating, but even so, I reckon a good deal of this will come true – tragically.

      The only detail I would add is that there will most probably be a (perfectly natural) spike in infections once the draconian house arrest is partially lifted, due to us not having developed any kind herd immunity.

      This spike will be used by the totalitarian regime to stoke the fear in the people so that they can accelerate and further tighten the noose around our necks.

      Watch for the first signs of this around 3 to 4 weeks after we ‘go to level 2’. It will be all on then.

        And that Jacinda would declare a ‘State of Emergency’ over a new strain of Flu that killed only a handful of elderly folk-and give herself almost unlimited power…..
        Would you have believed me?

      • Dave, I voiced the same concern the other day. They have not completed the job on capitalism yet. It is still possible to slowly claw back to whence we came. That IS a concern.
        There will definitely be a spike once normal service resumes. The question is, will they fear monger even more, and go backwards up the alert levels?
        If this does happen, especially to level 4, there will be civil unrest for sure. But mark my words, those not of the right flavour will be stomped upon hard.
        Also but, there will still be enough fucking moronic imbeciles ready to play ball and provide the snitch line with work to do.

        If we go back up the levels once getting to level 2, you and I are fucked, along with our once proud nation.

  9. How on earth does a govt department website contain wrong information unless the person uploading information didn’t double check the law. It’s called an “operational matter.”

    Work and Income gave wrong entitlement advice to numerous benefit applicants who’ve received redundancy payouts

    Work and Income appears to have spent decades wrongly advising some benefit applicants that they cannot get support until their redundancy has run out.

    RNZ has asked Work and Income and Social Development Minister Carmel Sepuloni a number of further questions about how long the practice had been in place; the number of people affected and whether back payments may need to be made.

    A spokeswoman for the minister said Sepuloni had not been aware of the issue but had asked officials for a briefing on Monday. They had advised it was an “operational issue”.

    Really.
    Thats what is wrong with the Public service cheeifs.
    Hoidning behind that.
    It goes both ways of course.
    Ministers use the sme lame excuse.
    Time for a better oversight regime.

    Will Sepolini chnge things?
    Will she hold someone to account for not fulfilling the law?
    Do pigs fly and the Pope wear a silly hat?

    Since 1994.

    ONE THING IS FOR SURE SHE DOESN’T TRUST ANY OF HER MORONIC MINISTERS TO TAKE OVER FROM HER.
    THIS WOULD BE A GREAT TIME TO BREAK WILLIE JACKSON INTO THE JOB ,HE’D BE FANTASTIC HE’S SUCH A CLEAR AND PRECISE SPEAKER, IN A TEN MINUTE SPEECH HE’D TALK FOR 9 MINUTES 45 SECONDS ABOUT MAORI ISSUES AND THE LAST 15 SECONDS TELLING US HOW GREAT CINDY IS.

        “Her Covid-19 coup is a miserable failure.”

        We are in lockdown, the mad queen has chucked her vassals (Ministers) into the Tower of No Talking and people hang onto her every word of when the Mad Queen might grant you the right to go to the garden centre or catch an aeroplane or visit your mother on Mothers day.
        Things we took for granted on 31 12 2019.

        No mate, she is well in control with her poo lice prowling the streets for bad thoughts and acting illegally (as the world was on 31 12 2019)
        and her media tards spouting the very words she wants spouted or they don’t get survival handouts.

        The mule tooth commie has had her coup. So far very successful.

        We need civil disobedience, major disobedience. 1981 level disobedience.
        This time the cops are armed with more than minto sticks.
        How convenient was that timing?
        This has been planned; and now the execution. (literally)

    But that’s not the problem. What has shocked me is how kiwis support her and even complain it does not go far enough. So fuck you NZ.

  18. Simon Bridges says Kiwis need to return to work to avoid ‘deepest recession in a generation’

    National Party leader Simon Bridges says the Government needs to trust Kiwis to return to work to avoid “the deepest recession in a generation”.

    “Our worry is that this Government will turn a $40 billion problem into a $100 billion problem with poorly targeted spending and wayward priorities,” he said.

    “And eventually it all needs to be paid back, with interest.”

    Mr Bridges said Westpac was forecasting 10 per cent deficits for the next two years and debt to rise to 50 per cent of GDP over the next four years, working out to about $100 billion in additional Government debt. Meanwhile, ASB’s estimate of debt to rise to 60 per cent of GDP equated to nearly $120 billion.

    “These figures are eye-watering and work out at more than $50,000 in additional Government debt per household.”

  20. Mama Bear had a few too many of the cocktails I mixed last night. She ended up very much under the weather and blamed me, as if I had fathered this headache upon her.

    She needed to go to a viewing today, and good husband that I am I drove her andnl kept her hydrated. Apart from the queue outside the dairy, but not the local fish and chips shop and the snake of cars outside the drive through KFC and Covid-19 testing station it looked like pretty much every other Sunday in Auckland.

    To the chap from Matrix Security doing nearly 100km/h in a 50 zone; that was a bit over the top. You outran the Aston Martin in what looked to be a Rav4. Where was Arderns coppers?

    Anyway, back in our sleepy suburb at the base of Mt Wellington and it feels almost pastoral again. No cars, people walking the streets as if auditioning for the Walking Dead. And the noisy kid next door practicing her outdoors voice. Which reminds me, must prime the hosepipe for a garden watering accident tomorrow morning if its parents let it out again at 7am to scream and holler through the neighborhood.

They have 5 children under 5 between the 4 of them and it makes sense. Imagine trying to entertain a fucking half-demon, half-human monster for 6 weeks without being able to smack their bottoms.

        They’ve also been reported three times; with two police visits from neighbourhood busy bodies who probably would lick Ardern’s bunghole if offered. I’m so fucking over suburbia.

  23. A few people on this & other forums have predicted mass civil disobedience but have they thought it through. Effectively that is one small step away from armed insurrection & to my mind will lead to one of only two possibilities:

    a) The government gives up all pretence of control. In this scenario the best they can hope for is a return to the way things were at the beginning of March which I suggest won’t happen. At worst parliamentary democracy is suspended until the army & police regain control.

    b) The government enforces its dictates through the police & when that doesn’t work they call in the army. This the people vs the state at its most raw & brutal. Expect many deaths & injuries.

    If there are other options lets hear about them. Neither of mine have happy endings.

    “By any standard, Dr. Judy Mikovits was among the most skilled
    scientists of her generation. She entered professional science from
    the University of Virginia with a BA degree in chemistry on June 10,
    1980, as a protein chemist for the National Cancer Institute (NCI)
    working on a life-saving project to purify interferon. The quality of her

    • WG
      You say
      They have promised…….

      It does not matter what comes after that

      They do not deliver.

      Promises are at best an aspiration and at worst a page filler with no meaning.

      • Their lies are coming so thick and fast. They make me sick with their flippancy and for taking us for granted and for fools.

  27. Gorse
    But WILL the Nats campaign on that?
    Unfortunately there is a very distinct impression abroad that Simon agrees with quite a lot of what has been happening; when he actually appears that is.
    One hopes that things will change, but so far, it don’t look encouraging.

  28. With all the shit coming out in the US about the false allegations against Trump and his supporters, wait for the inevitable increase in suicides from Democrats in the inner circle who were protecting Killary and obammma.
    Do they know that our very own dear leader has been able to stop all suicides here? When did you last see any report in the news about a suicide. Just another reason for her to fuck off to the lefty shit hole that is the UN.
    We really do not understand just how much good she has done for us. Time to share her with the rest of the world.

    • Australia is picking a 50% rise in suicides running out to five years.

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8293233/Far-people-Australia-predicted-die-suicide-coronavirus-lockdown.html#comments

      “The modelling reveals the annual rate of suicide could rise from 3,000 to 4,500 – and youth suicides would represent almost half of those figures.”

      Here the number is a similar proportion.
      About 500-600 a year-well more than one a day.
      Add 50% and you are looking at 300 extra p.a. times 5 = 2,500
      That is blood on Ardooms hands.

      Most offshore sites where real arithmetic is being done are suggesting that the econmoic and social fallout from the lockdown will see more deaths from suicide than a flu virus plus more deaths – often bya multiple of four – for people not treated normally through the medical system in the last 7+ weeks.

      ArDoom is the merchant of death.
      And she cannot blame anyone else.
      She has total control.
      as she wanted.
      Starting to look very Stalin like.
      He was on the cover of Time magazine twice as person of the year.
      Ardoom’s aspirations…

  29. Australian police have absolutely disgraced their uniform.

    In case you couldn’t make it out her protest sign reads “If you don’t know your rights you don’t have any.”
    Hardly reason for such heavy handed behaviour and where was their social distancing?

    • Not one comment supporting the authorities by the look. People in Aus are over it too.

    • That’s awful. Total overkill. Why was the cop insisting on holding onto the woman’s arm? She clearly couldn’t run off with a screaming child clinging to her. I hope that wakes people up to what is happening both in Aus and here in NZ.

      • I do not want the police in this case to be charged. What I do want is the full name, date of birth and residential address of each and everyone of those police involved in this appalling incident to be made public. The public will deal with them, and the N.S.W. government will not have to waste money on commissions of enquiry and a host of other parasitical expenses. Name and shame the reprehensible officers.
        Sydney has the best police force that money can buy, and that poor women did pay enough.

  30. We are hurtling towards a major happening within our society, within our lives, and which will in hindsight be also as such for some generations to come. The anxiety, angst, fear and anger have come to the surface in a lot of today’s comments.

    I will leave you with Jimmy Cliff:

    “And I keep on fighting for the things I want
    Though I know that when you’re dead you can’t
    But I’d rather be a free man in my grave
    Than living as a puppet or a slave”

    Will we be remembered as fighters or puppets?

    Thank you and goodnight! I’m here all week!

    Try the chicken……….

  31. Breaking, Error early release for level 2 tomorrow.

    …. Wellington …..
    ….. Police and the Westpac Helicopter are assisting Corrections ……
    ….. residents stay inside to “enable the helicopter’s technology to better identify heat signatures of interest in this area.” …..
    ….. absconded from custodial staff during a hospital escort ……

    So is it a “ultra vires” curfew called by the police for some people in Wellington? 🙂

  32. I’ve been having a bit of a look at TOPs UBI proposal. In general, it puts more money in your pocket. The problem I can see with it comes in with the tax on equity in your property and what that does for building up inter-generational wealth. It’s a good, well-designed mechanism for making us all equally poor.

  33. I’ve always wondered whether Venezuela’s economic suffering has more to do with trade embargoes against it, its relatively small size, and the confiscation of its oil revenues by the US, than its socialist/communist government. After all, China calls itself communist (though really its every bit as capitalist as the US, just in a different way) and is a dictatorship, but prospers largely because of trade with the rest of the world.
