  1. Sorry YSBrs but we are all going to be witnesses to the entire demolition of our once beautiful country over the next 40 months and there’s F—K all we can do about it.
    If you doubt me go to the labour party website and gaze at the picture of the caucus and tell me that inspires confidence to get us through the worst social and financial crisis we will ever face…

    • The demolition started when Mr Peters selected the Labour Party as part of a long running vendetta against others. Democracy was tossed out the window by Mr Peters at the outset. Yes, MMP enabled that process. That does not mean it was satisfactory and in good faith. Mr Peters is no at all close to electable ever again.

      None of the Coalition partners are either. your example of the low quality and poor performance of the present Leader and cabinet makes the point. Gushing through a press conference following a carefully prepared script is only a small component of the job.

  2. Here is an in depth look at how Russiagate began with Obama’s Iran deal
    domestic spying campaign. A very good read.
    https://www.tabletmag.com/sections/news/articles/russiagate-obama-iran

    May be tinfoil hat stuff, but I have wondered for a while whether NZ had any
    involvement in this.

    Why was NZ involved in UNSC 2334 that was adopted on 23 December 2016?
    Was it at Obama’s behest?…Obama needed a ‘Friendly’ to sponsor it and McCully
    certainly obliged without cabinet approval.

    What was John Key’s true reason for suddenly throwing in the towel in December 2016?
    His resignation and McCully’s shady behaviour occurred in the transition period of the
    Obama/Trump administrations.

    We now know ‘friendlies’ were involved in spying on behalf of Obama, probably through
    Five Eyes. Was our GSCB one of them and who was their overseer at the time?

    Were Key and Obama more than golf mates?…(I would love to expand on that).. .
    With Obama gone, was Key going to be compromised with the new President…
    remember none of them expected Trump to win…
    oh, and why the hell was NZ giving the Clinton Foundation millions of our money?

    • and why the hell was NZ giving the Clinton Foundation millions of our money?

      Have often wondered why. Perhaps Jenny Shiftey can tell us?

      Jenny was good mates with the Clintons and of course a well placed stooge for the Chiccoms.

      • Viking , I’ve always said the quality of our politicians is below what they’d need to be elected to govern in a third world shithole.
        The COL we have now appears to have made it their aim to move NZ to that shithole level of life.
        Look at that bloated C—T Willie Jackson on TV 3 this morning,laughing and joking as if there’s no problems at all, and for that lifelong trougher there aren’t any..

        • How the hell did people listen to that drivel merchant Willie Jackson on radio for hours on end.
          That would be self abuse.

          NZ politicians looked at The Cook Islands in the 1980s and decided to crab walk us into such a ‘pacific paradise’.
          We are there.

          Where they go, we go, gets another meaning

          Bolger started it, Shipley continued and here we are today,

    • Toko
      Yes, yes, and yes.

      I have yet to read the linked article but yes there are puppets in out Govt at the very top who answer to outside the country.
      Democracy is so cute.
      People think they are choosing.

      You might not like the answer but do some thinking.
      Q. Why was Key so relaxed.
      A. He did not make any big decisions in eight years?
      The Govt spent net $10 Billion over 5 years ($2b pa) on Christchurch rebuilt so not a lot based on Govt revenue as a percentage of average Govt income of $ 60 to 70 Billion pa in that period.
      The stress was with the people with damaged homes and lives. Not with the govt.
      Nats borrowed more in 2009-2010 to pay the social welfare bills.
      So, in economic terms it was not a big deal for Govt expenditure. The Insurance companies paid out $20 billion – and the rest of us are paying for this now in our insurance each year .
      Bill English did the heavy lifting on the economics side. He did that well.
      Key cruised and took and executed his orders. When his work was done he stepped aside.
      They knew Trump would challenge their painted stage. You are onto it.

      There is an alternate world govt that has emissaries to instruct players in face to face meetings.
      The COVID behaviour and reaction this year is not a big surprise.
      They need Trump out.

      Things have not being aligning for the Alt Govt in the past 18 months.
      In the past year Boris Johnson replaced the puppet Treason May.
      Shorten was meant to win the election in Australia (even puppet Farrar was calling that) and Shorten knows what happened to Whitlam when he did not follow orders.
      Australia was not set up with a puppet in place. This is abundantly clear with the all out assault on Morrison late last year over – how convenient- the bushfires.
      He took a one week holiday in Hawaii just before Xmas and got hammered by bought and paid for

      Ardern took nearly six weeks holiday in Australia but because she complies with orders got a good run and giggly good press.
      Macron the puppet has been under pressure with riots for over a year. Shutdown. All stopped.
      People see through puppet Trudeau in Canada and he may not get the next term.

      The ducks were not in a row for the alternative world Govt.
      The COVID scam has corrected that.
      The puppet media will bash the shit out of you if you step out of line.
      Morrison and B Johnson learnt this in no uncertain terms.
      Media is false, biased, bought, and your enemy.
      Jackboots are ready to deal with non compliance.

      Emissaries of the Alt Govt were in NZ at least twice last year.
      Po desta was here 2 days before Christchurch shooting.
      Sickly Colbert was here at the beginning of November to advise Ardoom in private what was going down. He is an untalented hack but has a TV show that has reach. He complies. He gets rewarded.

      All this stuff has been going on for over 50 years. (Marcos in Philippines, Suharto Indonesia, half of South America as far back as the 1960s)
      It is a complex world. But the six o’clock gnews will tell you what you ‘should know’
      Most people seem incapable of understanding or believing it and that works out well for the shadow people.

      Final clue (among many).
      The British Royal Family is compliant in all this. Ponce Andrew was ‘brought to the homestead’ and there is a massive amount of data that could be unleashed to severely Damage the BRF. They will stay silent.
      The bought and paid for media could be set on Ponce Harry and his other half. That will cause more damage. They are in line right now so get good press. The idea of him under the thumb of a mixed race woman suits the White Hate agenda- pushed oddly by many F.I.T.H. white journo scum.
      This is how it works.
      The MSM are your enemy.

      Good tips above Toko.
      Some won’t believe any of this. It is barely the tip of the iceberg.
      They might even downtick me . I am not concerned. I am pleased they feel safe in their TV1 world.

      • I still cannot get it out of my head that the first “international” person to ring Ardern after Peters appointed her was Al Gore. Not long after she made her captain’s call on the O&G industry.
        I would also take a small bet on the call from her friend oversea that “helped her make up her mind” about the virus issue was from globalist Tony Blair.

        • I thought it was B.liar who told Ardoom what to do with the COVID.
          Primary instruction. Shut everything down. Now. Unleash the Jackboots.

          There is ostensibly friction between the two. Fabricated or not. Stated that she did not approve of his war in Iraq. This could be ‘cover’.
          Ardoom does not care about the suffering of others but she would beat Meryl Streep in pretending she does.

          What might interest Nasska if he does not yet know – B.liar converted to being a Catholic after he was PM. It would not have worked well if he had done it sooner given he was the PM of a country where Anglicanism is the official religion … on home turf.

  3. I really hope Simon wins today. I think he has done a good job at a difficult time. It would also give me great pleasure to see Tova and company have to shut the fuck up and piss off somewhere else. Maybe they could try doing their jobs and have a look at what the government is up to for a change, who knows they might even gain some credibility.

    • Why advance Todd “Who?” Muller as an alternative to Simon Bridges?
      Those who know him say he’s a good bloke, but do the referrals of those six people count for enough?
      Is this just an exercise to disarm the sideline snipers?

      12

      • Considering Muller has Boag, Bolger and McCully pushing him I do not think that is a good recommendation for anyone.
        As Mike Hosking said the other day —being a nice, likeable guy does not make a good leader.
        Also If Muller was a potential leader who could think strategically he would have made his move early in the new year to let himself become known and show the direction he wanted to go. The only problem was National was still doing OK in the polls and because he did not move then it shows he has no back bone.

        1

    • Does it really matter? Both Bridges & Mueller represent the Christian conservative 66% of National’s MPs & neither have the personal charisma of a Key or a Lange which National desperately needs to click with the electorate.

      The decision promises to have the same effect as calling heads or tales to decide who bats first at a women’s cricket match. ie few will watch & less will care.

  4. Thanks to your support, ACT just had its best poll result in a decade. Tonight’s TVNZ poll has us on 2.2 percent, bringing 3 MPs into Parliament. With the election now 121 days away, the timing could not be better.

    It’s time to send a message that this country doesn’t belong to the social engineers, the bureaucrats, or the woke left who want to run our lives with our money.

    The polls also say the left is well ahead. But a week is a long time in politics. Jacinda Ardern may be pleased she owns the Government’s health response to Covid-19, but she’ll be less happy about that come election day when the economic costs of the lockdown have become much clearer.

    We can win, and ACT can hold the balance of power and deliver real change. We want to get to know more about you so we can campaign together. Here’s how you can help us win together.

              • I used to pop into the Star Hotel in Kawakawa for the odd beer when I was on the road full time. It was quite common to see kids with glue bags in the car park having a sniff while their parents were inside having a beer. I don’t thing many of them did too well in life – mind you, the way benefits are going they’re probably doing better than me at the moment.

  5. National Party MPs prepare for midday Simon Bridges, Todd Muller leadership contest
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/05/national-party-mps-prepare-for-midday-simon-bridges-todd-muller-leadership-contest.html

    Bridges argues the extraordinary coverage Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has received and the resultant political environment have driven the poll results, but the approval ratings show a correlation between his performance and the dive in the party vote. He did have the opportunity to at least hold the party vote to a level where National would not be decimated, but the lockdown has hardened the public attitude against him personally. The cover of strong party vote polling he’s had throughout his leadership is gone.

    The emergency caucus meeting will be convened at midday and, by all accounts, it will be head to head battle between Simon Bridges with deputy Paula Bennett, and Todd Muller and Nikki Kaye.

  6. You missed out on a good dinner last night. Cindy Winston and the COL were given a good rogering in the robust conversation.
    The concensus is that Simon should and will win today’s showdown with “who the fuck is mullet?”
    Just because he gets some of his rellies and mates to front on tv for him doesn’t mean shit.
    Chuck got a good reminder that it was voters like him that gave us the most useless govt in our history.

  7. Dunedin lefty loonies wasted $40k on painted circles. This is what you get when Green candidates who don’t drive themselves get on the council and make decisions that drivers can drive at 10km/hr. 🤣

    Outrage as Dunedin Council spends $40k on street makeover in response to COVID-19
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/05/outrage-as-dunedin-council-spends-40k-painting-dots-on-main-street-in-response-to-covid-19.html

    Dunedin residents say their city council is “going dotty” after a carnival facelift to the central city prompted by COVID-19.

    Four-hundred and fifty coloured circles have been painted along the main street with the speed limit lowered to 10km/h. People could be forgiven for thinking there’s a carnival on in Dunedin.

    • The street has got measles!

      Will this give some people PTSD.

      I guess that is oil based paint- from a city that has banned oil exploration and sold off shares circa 2013 in ‘bad industries’ – at loss to ratepayers – on a rising sharemarket.
      That was Dave F..ing Cull.

      New greenie clown mayor who has spurned the mayoral car as ‘bad juju’
      He is 35, clueless, and has grey hair already.
      I guess he won’t use hair dye -unlike Ardoom – because it is oil based!

      Profile:
      “Aaron Hawkins is currently serving his first term as Mayor, after two terms as a city councilor.

      He grew up in and around Invercargill, before moving to Dunedin to study at the University of Otago in 2002. After graduating with a B.A. in Media, Film and Communications (YAY!) he worked at Radio One 91FM, and as a freelance writer for various print and online publications.

      Since first being elected in 2013, Mayor Hawkins has focused on supporting our community’s social and environmental wellbeing, which he sees as a priority. Local government plays a vital role in delivering these, particularly when it comes supporting a just transition to a safer climate future.”

  8. Revealed: The big reason Judith Collins isn’t running for the leadership this time
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/05/revealed-the-big-reason-judith-collins-isn-t-running-for-the-leadership-this-time.html

    Judith Collins says there’s a simple reason why she’s not running for the National Party leadership – she’d lose.

    The party will today decide whether to stick with incumbent Simon Bridges – whose leadership has seen the party plummet in the polls – or take a chance on the relatively unknown Todd Muller, who wants to take over the reins.

    There are reports Rodney MP Mark Mitchell – a former private security contractor and policeman – may also throw his hat in the ring.

  9. The inability of our side to read the winds really worries me. For better or for worse Muldoon heralded the age of presidential politics in NZ. Gone were the days of grey men who made two hour speeches about fuck all which they had no intention of honouring & then got elected anyway.

    He was followed, in no particular order, by Key, Lange & Clark…….surely a pattern is emerging.

    It’s pointless to argue that our PM is not a president if that is what the voting public & MSM want. Coming second is not a viable option for political parties.

    Work out what needs to be done & find someone who can do it!

    • A key part of leadership skills is the ability to sense what is over the horizon before your opposition, and plan accordingly. To lead you must know what direction you are heading, and your goal.

      0

      • In politics the real power isn’t necessarily held by the leader. Muldoon was ably assisted by Bill Birch. Bolger relied on Birch & Wyatt Creech to do the behind scenes work. Key wouldn’t have made a third term without Bill English.

        Bennett hasn’t fired lately & Kaye is an airhead. I don’t see either of today’s hopefuls being guaranteed much in the way of solid backup.

  10. Covid-19: Police give green-light to large church services, contradicting PM’s stance

    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/content/tvnz/onenews/story/2020/05/22/6-30am-embargo-police-give-large-church-services-greenlight.html?auto=6158356794001

    1 NEWS can reveal the new guidelines issued by police today would potentially allow dozens to attend a service at any one time.

    It contradicts the position taken by the Government – and reiterated by the Prime Minister – that a maximum cap of 10 people remains.

    However, police say if the venue size allows, multiple groups of 10 could be present at a religious service so long as each group remained two metres apart.

    Appropriate contact tracing would also need to be kept.

    It suggested places of worship would likely be viewed as “event facilities”, therefore allowing up to 100 attendees while suggesting refreshments to followers after a service would also be permitted.

    Earlier this week National Party MP Simeon Brown called for greater clarity.

  12. Finally the “free speech” to release the report, that the taxpayers had paid for!
    The petition, though initially ignored, did work

    …. British government has announced that it will finally publish a report on the “characteristics” of offenders in grooming gangs, following pressure from voters and MPs after accusations the Home Office tried to bury the report from the public under the guise of providing a “safe space” for lawmakers to consider policy.

    ….. 2014 Jay inquiry had found that despite the mass rape of young girls, local authorities and police had ignored the crisis for decades over fears of being labelled racist or inflaming tensions within migrant communities. ……

    The aim was to rework that last report to “mellowize” it.
    ….. The Home Office said in a statement that it “will set up an external reference group of experts to review the research before its publication”, suggesting the document as it exists now could be liable to change before a future version is released to the public. …..

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/05/19/govt-forced-publish-report-ethnicity-rape-gangs-pressure-public-mps/

    Now to see if the real report is being released, or have they pulled the teeth, doctored, on that repor?
    Has the “hate speech” definitions managed to strike some things out?

  13. Auckland Council reveals half billion-dollar funding shortfall thanks to COVID-19
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/05/auckland-council-reveals-half-billion-dollar-funding-shortfall-thanks-to-covid-19.html

    About 60 percent of the council’s income comes from sources other than rates, and those sources dried up over the past couple of months as the country went into lockdown.

    “The majority of our revenue comes from non-rates sources like recreation facilities, transport, concerts, and dividends from council assets,” Mayor Phil Goff said on Friday.

    “We are forecasting a shortfall of $30 million in revenue just from community facilities, pools and leisure centres over the next year. We’ve already seen a shortfall of $1.1 million in revenue from the zoo in April, and expect another $5 million over the next year.

    • I feel really sorry for Bridges. National was polling well and would probably be doing even better if the wuflu hadn’t come along. I’ve never been a huge fan of Bridges but he has always absorbed the pressure that comes with the territory and worked tirelessly for the party despite being stuck in the shade. I suspect the real winner out of this will be ACT, Muller is no Cindy and lacks any real experience. Team Luxon and Crusher will roll whats left of him after the election. I hope Bridges walks away from the party and finds employment with someone who appreciates his talents.

        • I do not feel sorry for Bridges
          He is in politics.
          It is not about feeling sorry.
          Just as I don’t buy Ardoom’s ‘Feelz …no result’s ‘ approach

          As far as I am concerned it is about delivering.
          There has been bugger all of that in 2 generations.
          Bridges was so close to Liebour and Ardoom you could not slide a piece of 80 gsm paper between them.
          He supported more last year in the ‘year of delivery’ than he opposed.
          Being neutral is bedda than supporting all that stuff esp when it was Zero Carbon, UN control, etc stuff.

          Notional simply drove to TINA Town.
          There Is No Alternative.
          Notional has an appallingly bad President – who is married to MP Scott Simpsons ex wife.
          Dizzy Disley.
          It is the role of President to build second and third tier players to have succession planning.
          He has failed…. spectacularly… which is why they are in TINA town.

          They have not moved forward with whatever his name is, the new guy, um, the MP from [pause, checks for electorate, uh oh ] the list. Mr Who.

          I understand party wrecker Michael Boag said the bedrock of support for Notional is at 30%.
          I suspect she will be proven wrong again, and will come back and stir more shit and be wrong…again.
          She was a one term Prez and took them to 21%.
          That is more like bedrock.

          Her own BS wiki page today has:-
          “Boag was a National Party Dominion councillor and on the Dominion Publicity Committee before becoming National Party president from 2001 to 2002, leading the party renewal in 2001-02 that enabled Bill English to become leader of the National Party, for the first time.”

          Renewal.
          Hell, I would hate to see what she calls destruction.
          If Boag was near a swimming pool they would call out ‘Code Brown’

          …and speaking of swimming pools, Nikki Kaye is so politically wet she could fill a 25 metre swimming pool. M Thatcher she is not.

          Gimme ACT.

Disappointing to say the least that they were so disloyal they are possibly enough to bring the national down. Muller is a nothing person. He has been in parliament a couple of terms yet no one never heard of him. What does that say?

  17. From the Tax Payers Union’s latest newsletter

    “Seven weeks ago, Ministers learned that, with butchers closed, a surplus of pigs threatened to create animal welfare problems.

    Officials suggested allowing retail butchers to open under COVID-19 rules, but the Government dismissed that advice. As a result, taxpayers are now buying 2,000 pigs a week.

    The Government’s determination to shut down butchers against official advice hurt those businesses, damaged the pork industry, and made conditions worse for pigs. Even with the taxpayer footing the bill for 2,000 pigs a week, this only covers up to 40% of the weekly surplus. The other 60% will have to be destroyed. What a waste.”

    AND

    “This week we revealed that COVID-19 support funding for general practitioners was allocated significantly on the basis of enrolled patients’ ethnicities.

    A response we obtained under the Official Information Act showed that GPs received $4.50 in funding per Māori or Pacific patient with any other ethnicities worth only $1.50 – only a third of the amount. ”

    Tell me again what that initial $50 million gift to Maori was for ?

  19. Having recently given up the fags, had seven week isolated with the fridge and the pantry for comfort, and with seasonal temperature changes I ventured into town today to recharge my wardrobe – intending a full scale operation.

    One store I like has not yet reopened (and I wonder if they will). Their website says they are open, so I was annoyed to travel some distance to find that is not the case. Rang their 0800 when I got home, recorded messages and music then after 15 minutes then told to use the website and hung up.

    One store doesn’t appear to have winter stock out and is still trying to shift the summer stuff.

    The last one demanded I complete the attendance register despite this not being necessary for retail. Their store = their rules = my $ my pocket.

    The recession hasn’t hit hard enough yet and the voodoo is still in charge.
    Meanwhile I’m going to walk around the block a few times and wear last years stuff.
    I’ll go shopping again when they’re offering 50% off.

  20. Latest from The Taxpayers Union. Race based funding confirmed. Fucking disgrace.

    Revealed: COVID-19 GP funding is race-based
    “This week we revealed that COVID-19 support funding for general practitioners was allocated significantly on the basis of enrolled patients’ ethnicities.

    A response we obtained under the Official Information Act showed that GPs received $4.50 in funding per Māori or Pacific patient with any other ethnicities worth only $1.50 – only a third of the amount.

    Info response

    Elderly and individuals from low socio-economic areas were valued at the increased Māori/Pacific amount.

    So much for the Government’s COVID-19 slogan that ‘we’re all in this together’. Skin colour shouldn’t be the proxy for how much money the Government allocates for healthcare.

    COVID-19 doesn’t spread to Māori and Pacific patients more than other patients. In fact, only 8% of cases in NZ involve someone of Māori ethnicity and 5% for patients of Pacific ethnicity. This is around half their respective shares of the population so in fact they are less affected than other ethnicities, yet they get 200% more funding. This is putting wokeness ahead of public health.

    Sometimes Māori and Pacific health is targeted because those communities are generally in low socioeconomic circumstances. But for GPs the Government has all of that socioeconomic data, and could have targeted the money on that basis.

    Had the Taxpayers’ Union not sought out clarification over how funding was distributed, the information would never have been available to the public.”

  21. The time between now and election day is going to be interesting.
    How much of a chance will labour give the dead in the water greens?
    The greens will show their true colurs and go red, shafting Shaw in the process and co leadership.
    I’m picking Whinestone has shot his bolt and will get dealt to by the comrade and labour as utu in the near future as they don’t need or want them. Won’t it be fun.
    Who thinks Alfies wife will be trying to pinch back as much money from shame slush fund as he can as he can, to spike Whinstones guns and foul his chances. That’ll stuff whinestones coat tails plan in the north.
    Who thinks Bridges will contest this election. Do you think Whinestone has a chance in his old seat?
    Will there be a rush of nationals retirements?

  22. Despite the voluntary lockdown in Osaka ending, people are reluctant to go out to eat at restaurants.
    I expect a similar problem in New Zealand. The government can go back to “Level 0” if it wants to, but people will hold back from pubs, restaurants, bars, casinos and other hospitality infrastructure.
    Part of this hesitation will be lingering fear of the coronavirus. More will be over concern of job security and the need for belt-tightening. Others will not want to appear insensitive to their fellow countrymen by “living it up” when so many have lost their jobs and the facing financial hardship.
    Getting “back to normal” is going to be a lot harder than the government first thought. Shutting down the economy is not like turning off a light. It’s more like shutting down a refractory furnace. Once it cools down, it has to be stripped and re-fitted before it can get ready to start up again.
    It’s like no-one in the decision-making processs in government has very much experience about life in the real world.

    The new guy leading National is going to have an opportunity to show the voter what skills he has. I hope he doesn’t disappoint.

  23. I find it difficult to understand why Muller would even think about leaving the door ajar for the drunken midget.
    Muller has basically given the big fark you to National supporters. What an absolute dickhead! Peters is on 2.7%, why would you even entertain the idea. He should be blowing David Seymour not hand jobbing Peters. Fail, Muller. Another 3 years of fairy dust.

    • Like saying “NZ punches above its weight”.
      “Now a lot of the rhetoric goes, ‘Well, if we do this, we’ll be a world leader’.

      All rather blithe meaningless verbiage.

      Builds NZ up in straw, to then drag NZ down.
      Like the NZ expert social engineers, which one can see in the ‘blame game’ looking to cut down the current “pale stale male” culture.

    • BBC.
      -The home of a necrophiliac that got a knighthood
      -The home of sex offenders of many stripes. Some convicted. some not.
      -The outfit that recently canned a free TV licence to the over 75s
      -The outfit that paid their so called ‘talent’ in offshore accounts like Isle of Man and Channel islands.
      The Tax service investigated and these luvvies have to pay back the tax.
      I am not surprised. The scheme was illegal as constructed.
      BBC wiped their hands of it.
      Should have been prosecuted.

      I dont give a crap for their opinion.
      the media scum they are today bear no resemblance to the outfit they were 70 years ago.

      Also I am watching ‘History of the Indian Wars’ on youtube Nearly 4 hours. Will do another hour now.
      The Maori had it fecking good compared to pretty much anyone:
      North American indians, south american indians, Caribbean people, Australian Aborigines, Anywhere the Belgians or French went.

      Quoting Spoonley ..its got no legs.

      It would be nice if Britain looked after its own native people instead of sending them to the back of the queue. But they are Whities so no chance.

    Duckduck is back!!!

    She’s been gone for 10 days & nights.

    We are just back from town and as we were walking out the garage we heard a big flurry of wings and there she was, waiting for us.
    She looks a bit thinner, but wasn’t desperate for her dinner.
    Perhaps she knows what happens tomorrow!

      • Na,
        She took off with a Paradise pair.. but perhaps they’ve dumped her.

        The 3 Mallards are turning into a soap opera…
        The 2 drakes had a full-on barney yesterday…Biting and shoving… whilst the female just sat nearby… Then they all flew off.

        At 8am this morning the female was squatting down on the front lawn near a water container I’ve put out for them… (normally she flies in at lunchtime)…I went down to feed her and noticed one drake was present… but as I got closer to them she tried to stand up and wobbled a bit before limping away a few metres….she did eat her breakfast, but was obviously limping and sat down as soon as she had finished eating.

        Hubby also noticed she’s unsteady on her feet on land, but seems ok flying and pottering around on the pond.

        #2 drake didn’t show up today.

        What will happen 2moro, when Duckduck struts her stuff again?

  25. I did not see it but a friend tells me Muller was asked about churches not being allowed to be open, on TV1. He says, I’m from a strong catholic background but I can agree with what is being done (or words like that). He clearly has not been to church for a while, otherwise he would know congregations are not that big now and having “social distancing” would be easy in most cases.
    So he is just going to agree with things by the look of it —that would have been an easy case to use to offer a different yet constructive view.
    Bolger is out there saying Muller worked well with Shaw over the Zero Carbon Bill —- OMG keep your nose out of it Bolger !!!

  26. James Woods twitter and comments concerning NZ.

    NZ is in for a great shock….once they realize what rights they have lost…they really are cattle being lead to the slaughter…thanks to Fabian Society leader Ardren!

    NZ has been totally rolled. Now it’s the unconscious, docile Illuminati soft landing spot. Sad.

    The NZ Government might be compassionate, but their Prime Minister isn’t exactly the poster girl for Mental Health Monthly.

    • I mentioned her Fabian society indoctrination about 2 months ago on here.
      It was clear from her action patterns.
      Her ‘calls’
      We know best.

      This would have been part of her training in London and possible Tavistock training as well.

      but.. but …she helped out in a soup kitchen in New York on the way over.
      All sigh for Saint Cindy !!
      Baybee!
