  1. Shit Ed. Why did we have to wake up to that horrible picture?
    Nearly broke my screen.
    Only thing that stopped me is you can’t buy another one at a decent price.
    double what I paid for some a few months back, if you can get one.

    NZ the way we want it isn’t any better than NZ they way I will tell you how it will be.
    Two sides of the same coin.

    NZ desrves much better than that.

  3. Of course this all plays into the Peters playbook. Simon will never be PM.

    One guess who has been in Bolgers whisky bottle lately.

    Worse if Simon goes Peters will want his old seat back.

    Not going to happen.

  5. Ryan Bridge on AM Show wanting to hear from Todd Muller and Nikki Kay. What do they stand for? “Are they tree huggers in blue jeans”. With them as leaders of National what would be the difference voting for Cindy.

    • That’s what happens when you read you own press and believe the ‘Jacinda has saved the World’ hype NZ Media have been spewing.
      The Mad Queen is now spouting these crazy socialist ideas on an almost daily basis- and remember we are NOT allowed to question her as ‘everyone loves me’ etc etc
      Be very afraid- I think Venezueala is the template for what is about to happen here…but we could end up much, much worse off

    • She obviously doesn’t think she has done enough damage to the economy yet. She is so stupid she doesn’t realise these suggestions are the think of a 2 year old. Not even a beneficiary would care as they are already on holiday. Bring the economy down even further you stupid bitch why don’t you? At least some people understand how stupid their ideas are once they think even a little about them, she how ever has no idea. F**k could she get any worse? I am afraid the answer, I can answer already is yes.

            • Obviously with Peters saying a definitely NO to her extra holiday idea the unions had to give her another stupid idea. The unions have as much to do with the crazy economic ideas of the Govt as her ideology.
              Did anyone bother think of the reduction in income for the workers (oh hell I forgot they will want a wage increase to compensate) and the reduction in tax for the Government that has the country in debt up to our eyeballs?

  6. Interesting that there was an article on Matt King telling ‘St Jacinda’ to take a hike last night.
    The comments on FB were almost all overwhelmingly supportive of him.
    I don’t believe these ‘Polls’ (that tell us we all adore Jacinda and love our Socialist Government etc etc) for a second!

  8. OK now we’re fucked – Todd Mueller and Nikki Kaye?

    So the blue rinse idiots at the National party HQ are proving that they are long, long overdue for the knacker’s yard. Having appointed what seemed to be the least charismatic and least electable Leader since .. well Bill English (don’t get me wrong BE is a brilliant MoF – probably the greatest we’ve ever had – but he’s a two time loser as leader), they appear to be trying to out do themselves by elevating an even more uncharismatic and unelectable leader with a face that’s perfect for radio. For goodness sake Nats – do you want NZ to be turned into Venezuala? Because you are doing everything right if you want to!

    And don’t get me started on that harpy Nikki Kaye as Deputy. She’s utterly bonkers and further left of centre than Helen Clark! She also possesses the signal characteristic of being deeply unlikeable – sure she can play the cancer card -but she is loathed across the National caucus.

    The National party are like how English rugby teams used to play in the 70s, 80s and 90s – they behave like they don’t want to score points against the opposition. They won’t run the ball and they kick it back the moment they find they’ve got their hands on the pill.

    FFS we’re in a post-Brexit, post-Trump, post-Truth world. The only thing that counts is the attack sound bite, it’s not like Labour aren’t giving them enough opportunities and ammunition – National just don’t have a clue how to win in the new environment. So much for globalist John Key’s renewal and the next generation – he looks to have totally broken the National party – it’s amazing after all the appalling shit that Labour threw at him and his kids, he’s now lining up behind them – what a fucking douche con man that short-ass git was. Bring back Steven Joyce or grow the fuck up and give the ball to Brawler Collins – it’d be worth it for the blood on the carpet.

    Caucus vote tomorrow will be like turkeys voting for an early Christmas.

    We’re all fucked!

  9. National are self deluded past redemption if they think that their marginally different policies are going to spirit them over the line ahead of Hugzilla.

    We live in an age of the soundbite rather than the two hour speech. Charisma beats knowledge. Style beats substance.

    • Nasska – Absolutely agree I have been commenting on blogs that Nationals problem is not Bridges its their lack of policies that appeal to their natural support base in Small Business, Farmers, Landlords and now Firearms owners. Party vote ACT bring in 10 ACT MP’s, keep National honest and create pragmatic policies – David Seymour has created more workable policies than the entire National front bench.

      • National’s problem is not the goddamn policies. It’s the public face-off with Jacinda. They give her a free pass on everything. EVERYTHING.

        Last weekend why wasn’t Soimon at a Church and calling everyone else to be as well. He should be calling Jacinda a liar everytime she does lie (which is every 20 seconds as far as I can tell). He should be getting thrown out of Parliament every PMQ – by attacking her on anyone of two dozen things:
        – soft on her David Clark, soft on Clare Curran, soft on Lees-Galloway, soft on Whaiteri, soft on the rapist in her office, soft on Labour Youth Camp assaults,
        – cover ups
        – secret Royal Commissions (what’s the point if we don’t find out what went wrong)
        – no sense on gun control
        – refusing to say no tax increases
        – soft on testing
        – lied about 20% wage cuts

        I could go on but why the fuck aren’t National making her eat shit on any of those things?

        That is why National are in the doldrums, they are utterly useless.
        – killing off

        • DP@1441
          And this is the problem; there are NO visible differences!! Simon gives the very clear imoression that he SUPPORTS the CoL and as we have seen, does nothing to dispel that impression.

          Combine that with a party with no ‘Mission Statement’, Statement of Values , or policies of any consequnce ( aspirational, rather than inspirational), there is very little left, to distinguish them from ‘The Left’.

          Perhaps that has always been the point of the exercise?

  10. Spare a thought for the farmers battling the huge drought That is still rolling along. and will be a perfect storm for the NZ economy.

    Now O Conner is asking farmers to employ people etc.!
    That is some assistance from the COL ?

    • Falcon – as a Farmer less badly affected by drought than N Island E Coast and north land but still concerned of having sufficient feed to cover winter, this Govt of clowns now want our cooperation! If I had my way ACT paid up members would get a gold card giving them first choice of meat at a 10% discount, National members a silver card and no discount, Labour Greens and NZ1 would get an arse card for any scraps left or petfood as a substitute

    • This is where National just do not get it —they should be out there slamming O’Connor. Dig back and quote the times the Government have slandered and shafted farmers. Ask O’Connor how many extra people he is employing on his farm.
      If they have to make a few slightly controversial comments about to make sure the MSM pick it up , just do it—ie. learn a bit from Trump.
      It is like they are still in first gear and not into overdrive yet.

  11. Thanks DP. Perfectly voiced how I feel about the leadership challenge.

    Talk about National bland following National bland. Keep Simon until after the election. Who in their right mind would want to take on leadership of the Nats going into this upcoming quagmire of an election unless they have an overly inflated opinion of their leadership skills. I vote for policies and competence not for the personality of the leader. Sort your policies out National, leadership is just a part of the window dressing to getting the job done.

  12. Paula Bennett ‘confident’ her leadership role is safe ahead of National’s emergency caucus vote

    National’s Paula Bennett is confident she’ll still be in the deputy leader hot seat following her party’s emergency leadership vote tomorrow.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/content/tvnz/onenews/story/2020/05/21/political-panel.html?auto=6158085873001

    “That’s my plan, and I’m feeling good and I’m feeling confident. And I think we’ve got a message to get out there and get on track and just keep doing what we’re doing because the country needs us,” said Ms Bennett.

    “I’m feeling really confident standing here this morning, John.”

    Ms Bennett described National as being like a “family”, and she predicted that by Friday afternoon it would be back on track. But she said she also wishes they weren’t doing the vote.

  13. ‘I’m no sheep’: National MP Matt King rubbishes Government’s COVID-19 distancing rules
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/05/i-m-no-sheep-national-mp-matt-king-rubbishes-government-s-covid-19-distancing-rules.html

    The Northland MP posted a photo of him and his elderly parents – who were celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary – posing with Greens Restaurant staff on the weekend.

    The photo caused major backlash from some Facebook users, who described his decision to ignore distancing rules to stand close to staff as “a disgrace”, “embarrassing” and “idiotic”.

    But King says the Government’s rules are “random and illogical”, and told irate commenters the staff member he’s standing next to was the one who waited on their table.

    King says it would’ve been impossible for the server to distance himself while serving their food, describing the rules as “a charade”.

    “The rulings coming out of this Government are random and illogical. Only 10 at a funeral is allowed and then next day 100 is okay. Same with religious gatherings,” he wrote.

    “I’m no sheep, each individual can assess the risk and make their decision accordingly (sic).”

    • My brother in law ( has been in the health sector all his 50 year career ) told us the other day that when this distancing “rule” was first set up by world health authorities, it was meant to be 2.5 meters if you were going to be near someone for more than 15 minutes.

    “MrTips
    A little birdy tells me Jacinda and Ashley are in for a wee shock soon.

    • He’s probably referring to the (logical) assumption that, now that the lockdown has been lifted, the persistent little covids will start to multiply and our ‘infection’ rates will start to climb again. This is what virus’ do. They like to survive and they’re pretty good at it.

      This will re-ignite the panic and our country will very likely be catapulted back into house arrest… probably around 15th or so of June. The death rate won’t increase much, because New Zealanders are still pretty healthy and resilient people despite Ardern’s efforts to fuck up our immune systems. But she doesn’t need many actual deaths to find an excuse to take total control.

      Her work isn’t yet finished and while New Zealand still has the semblance of an economy and a social structure, she’ll be looking for every opportunity to get in and finish us off.

    • Simon is front footing the leadership challenge by Muller and Kaye and brought forward the leadership vote from next Tuesday to tomorrow lunchtime. If Simon and Paula come out of this as winning the vote that will reinforce the party as a unified force. Changing leadership will just look like Labour when they were floundering under numerous leadership changes, Shearer, Cunliffe, dead fish…

  16. Venezuela food prices anyone?

    Food prices soar during lockdown as panic-buying pressure settles in
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/05/food-prices-soar-during-lockdown-as-panic-buying-pressure-settles-in.html

    Even a bargain brand loaf of white bread has surged by 24 percent

    Overall, the cost of food rose 1 percent in April, and by 4.4 percent over the past year which is the biggest annual price rise since 2012. But these price changes aren’t all down to the supermarkets.

    Panic buying put pressure on suppliers, and the supermarkets were worried they’d sell out so they dropped their promotional discounts.

    Countdown and Foodstuffs promise discounts are back now, but they wouldn’t allow Newshub’s cameras inside to film it.

  17. OCR predicted to fall below 0 percent by end of 2020
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/04/ocr-predicted-to-fall-below-0-percent-by-end-of-2020.html

    In March, the OCR was slashed by 75 basis points, with banks adjusting their floating rates immediately, and some cuts later to other lending and deposit rates.

    Westpac chief economist Dominick Stephens said the Reserve Bank would also double its quantitative easing (QE) programme to $60 billion in May, but would be unlikely to up it any more after that.

    He said a negative OCR would remain for about a year, and while it would incentivise lower retail rates, those would not go into negative.

    However, growth beyond the September quarter would be be harder to come by

    “You’re going to have the legacy of people being unemployed, not spending and that having a second-round effect on shops’ revenues.

    “Declining house prices might affect behaviour, some businesses might have folded and others might have taken on a lot of debt to help them get through. All of those things mean the recovery could well be slow.”

      There is some comfort however in Mr Orrs (RB) promise to remain at 0.25% for 12 months.

  19. New Zealand’s housing bubble on the brink of bursting – global economist
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/05/new-zealand-s-housing-bubble-on-the-brink-of-bursting-global-economist.html

    We’re entering one of the most difficult periods in history, says global economist and writer Harry Dent Jr, and New Zealand could bear the brunt of a burst housing bubble following the economic fallout of the COVID-19 crisis.

    Dent’s economic predictions have been met with both scepticism and amazement over the decades. In the late 1980s, the economist forecasted that the leading Japanese economy would enter a dramatic slowdown lasting more than a decade. In the early 1990s, he claimed the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) would reach 10,000. Despite backlash and widespread disbelief, his predictions eventually proved to be true.

    During an economic downturn, properties stand to lose their value. In this instance, homeowner’s may have mortgages greater than the property’s worth, and be in negative equity. If they need to sell, they will receive far less than the sum they initially paid.

    Dent strongly disputed the Reserve Bank and the Treasury’s forecast that New Zealand will follow a ‘V-shaped’ recovery. Recent predictions claim that a steep rise will follow a sharp decline, allowing the country’s economy to re-stabilise by the end of next year. Dent says that theory is “totally unrealistic”.

    He predicts the next global boom will fall between 2023 and 2036 – but between now and then is where things get risky.

    “I’m giving people a warning. This is not just an ordinary recession. It’s not about the virus – except it’s the perfect trigger, because you can’t stop the virus with money-printing like you can with stock crashes or recessions. This is a time for people to look at their real estate, their stocks – get as safe as you can for a few years.”

    • We get inflation with quantitive easing which is whats happenning right now ..house prices will increase in value BUT if we have little or no economic growth ( tick yes) we end up with stagflation. Stagflation refers to an economy that is having a simultaneous increase in inflation and stagnation of economic output. If you have spare cash buy gold..I cant recommend that enough. If you are into shares, buy utilities..electricity ,communications stuff like that. As usual DYOR.

    • As long as there is a supply shortage, the bubble will not burst. Values might drop even by 10% or so, but in the long term prices wil bounce back. People still need a roof over their heads and the banks are not keen on owning houses.

  20. MPs expenses appear to show Todd Muller has been campaigning for months to roll Simon Bridges
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/05/mps-expenses-appear-to-show-todd-muller-has-been-campaigning-for-months-to-roll-simon-bridges.html

    Muller has been touring the country with his surface travel costs doubling from $5999 between October-December 2019 to $11,848 between January and March this year.

    He’s also more than doubled how much he spent on accommodation out of Wellington from $1354 to $3324.

    Party leaders always spend the most, but Muller is just $2655 off Simon Bridges’ expenses of $37,183 – and his include crown limo costs, so should be way more.

    In 2018, the leaking of MPs’ expenses caused one of the biggest political scandals in modern politics after Bridges spent up large on crown limos.

    Muller told Newshub it was not about campaigning but meeting with farmers – part of his role as National’s agriculture spokesperson.

  24. Election 2020: National MP Nick Smith questions Electoral Commission’s ‘political neutrality’ in stand-off
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/05/election-2020-national-mp-nick-smith-questions-electoral-commission-s-political-neutrality-in-heated-stand-off.html

    “Voting will start two days earlier than planned on Saturday 5 September and we’ll have more advanced voting places, especially on the weekend before the election on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September… It will look like a mini election weekend.”

    Wright said the Electoral Commission consulted with Justice Minister Andrew Little because there were “implications around resources to consider” and the commission “needed to ensure the minister was aware of that”.

    Dr Smith said the “key difference” is that the commission informed the Government and gave them the chance to provide feedback, whereas Opposition political parties were told what the commission planned to do without the same opportunity.

    He said providing the Government with knowledge on when the early voting will start is “important political intelligence” to secure advertising placements. He said the three governing parties should not have that advantage.

    “Don’t you think it creates some difficulties about the political neutrality of the Electoral Commission when some of the parties in the election have got notice beforehand of the sorts of changes that you’re going to advance?”

    He said it “came as a bit of a surprise” to the Justice Committee that the commission “thinks it can make changes” to the Election Day procedures “without any consultation” with some political parties.

    Wright said the commission “looked at a range of mechanisms to ensure that we are providing a service for those people who are unable to go into voting places”.

    • I will see if National can push for and answer to this email sent on 17 May.

      Dear Board Members

      I am writing to the Board as I am concerned that the Board have decided this far out from the election that an election on 19 September can be held fairly.

      If we are still at level 2 there is no way that the election can be held fairly. This is New Zealand not America and the election is more than about the party leader.

      Surely, the voters have a right to hear what candidates have to say at candidate meetings in each electorate and maybe get a chance to ask questions.

      The ruling party normally has an advantage. That is why one party often stays in power for three terms. This pandemic has allowed the PM extraordinary time to politic not only about her handling of the virus but also her handling of the economy.

      The PM has the power to limit number who can attend a political meeting. This gives her a huge advantage.

      I would be obliged if the Board would answer a few questions.

      1 Will the Board request or even accept submissions from party leaders?

      2 Will the Board accept submissions from the voting public?

      3 Is the Board’s decision subject to a legal appeal?

      Kind regards

        As a point of legislative law, it’s a very valid line of thinking. I haven’t seen any other commentary on this point, so hat tip to you Sir.
        I know you’re getting no cut through on this, here or elsewhere, but I agree with you and think it is yet another of our rights that have fallen by the wayside. Funny that aye!

  25. What do we have to show for any of it?

    Contractors and consultants cost Government $914 million last year
    New figures show the Government spent almost $1 billion on contractors and consultants last year.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/contractors-and-consultants-cost-government-914-million-last-year

    The spend of $914 million is slightly more than the year before ($900.2 million in 2017/18).

    But it is less as a percentage of the total spending on the public sector workforce: 12.8 per cent, down from 13.4 per cent.

    This is due to the public sector workforce expanding. Two whole new agencies were created in this time, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and departmental agency Te Arawhiti.

    “It’s early days but we are starting to head in the right direction,” State Services Commissioner Peter Hughes said.

    The Government ordered the core public sector to rein in and report contractor spending more clearly amid controversy over the high bills two years ago.

    It was unknown how the Government’s response to Covid-19 will affect expenditure on contractors and consultants in the next 12 months, the commission said.

    The biggest spenders were Inland Revenue, with $206 million, up $11 million year-on-year, and the Education Ministry, $147 million, up $15 million.

    The top five biggest spenders of the 32 core agencies mandated to rein in spending, between them accounted for more than half the spend, or $567 million.

    Corrections was one, rising steeply to $59 million, while only Internal Affairs among the top five actually cut its spending, by $1 million to $57 million.

    Social Development was the major agency to make a big cut – down $23 million to $46 million.

    Fourteen agencies had relatively stable spending, and six managed sizeable cuts, though often off low bases, such as the Serious Fraud Office cutting a million off the previous year’s $1.7 million bill.

    • from the article:

      ” Mary*, who has asked to remain anonymous, says she served her tenant the required three-months notice in January to vacate the property in April, because it was no longer fit for purpose, and she had other plans for the site.

      But now, under the new rules, the tenant is entitled to stay, and Mary has been told the old villa must be brought up to the new standards required for rental accommodation. In addition, she has been told she must pay the tenant $3500 for the “inconvenience of living in an unsatisfactory house over the winter”.

      “I now have to bring a house I was intending to pull down, up to scratch,” she says.

    • He’s dull. He has nothing interesting to say. And after reading his maiden speech in full the reason for this becomes clear. He doesn’t appear to hold any strong political views.

      He declared his belief in the family, individual enterprise, education and constant self-improvement. These are the platitudinal talking points of someone whose understanding of political theory comes reading book covers and not the pages within.

      The Muller camp are boasting that they have over 30 votes. Maybe they do and if he is elected leader National deserve the electoral annihilation that such an act of recklessness deserves.

      It is more likely that his initial support came from a handful of disgruntled MPs secluded in what they perceive as safe seats, and is slowly spreading to include lowly ranked MPs now losing their nerve in the face of one and, possibly, two bad poll results.

      If he loses in spectacular fashion tomorrow the public will understand that National is united and we will all be reminded that, for all his faults, Bridges is a tough campaigner who is willing to do whatever is required to win.

  26. From TV1:

    ……”National has dropped dramatically, down 17 percentage points to 29% – its lowest Colmar Brunton poll result since 2003.”……

    And Godboy hasn’t even hit his stride. I reckon he’ll get them under 25%. 🙂

    • These pollsters are not very good at arithmetic. That lot adds up to 115%. What they really mean is those that made a decision give the 59 or 29 etc. In reality they have to take the undecideds into the equation so while the relativity between parties will be the same the basic number is different. eg. by my maths Labour should be 51.3% etc.

    • ROL, New Zealanders are now a bunch of soft cock cucks. Happy to watch while cindy sucks off their taxes, with their cock in hand, meekly obedient to the cause of the day.
      But they will get exactly what they’ve been told they want.

      I can’t wait to see them get it.
