  3. The gloves are off, Peters is frustrated at the polls for NZF while the “amazeballs” he put in power is taking all the glory.

    NZ First reminding Labour who put them in power, with election around the corner
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/nz-first-reminding-labour-put-them-in-power-election-around-corner?auto=6161570098001

    The Winston Peters-led party has been throwing its weight around publicly, not only on commercial rent but also the push to move to Level 1.

    “We need to get the lexicon right. They’re not running the country by themselves. They’re in a coalition with NZ First,” Mr Peters said.

    “They’re only in the Government because NZ First chose them to be there.”

    Mr Peters’ comments came as no surprise to a realistic Prime Minister.

    “Hey, this is election year you’ve got to expect this,” Jacinda Ardern said.

    You only have to look at the polls to explain Mr Peters’ motives.

    “How do you explain what I’m doing here and my party’s doing here for 27 years if you pollsters are right? And I wish you’d just get a grip of reality,” Mr Peters said.

    • NZ First did not have the option of choosing anyone else since National told the drunken dwarf to stick his bottom lines where the sun doesn’t shine.
      Winston’s perceived power is a media construct with no basis in truth.
      Labour was appointed to the government benches by the Greens who didn’t have the imagination or economic nous to understand that a stand with National would have been in the best interests of the environment and the kiwi underclass they pretend to represent.

  5. Auckland businessman accused of smuggling 75,000 cigarettes into NZ
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/auckland-businessman-accused-smuggling-75-000-cigarettes-into-nz

    The 29-year-old Auckland businessman appeared in the Auckland District Court after NZ Customs officers arrested him yesterday following a tobacco smuggling investigation.

    He faces multiple charges under the Customs & Excise Act and the Crimes Act, and more charges are likely.

    The Chinese-branded cigarettes were hidden in a cargo-load of new household items and were uncovered by Customs in January this year, officials said.

    The total evasion of Customs duty and GST amounted to $83,365, officials allege.

David Seymour wasn’t so lucky after being referred to by Winston as “sunsine” returned the banter with “grandpa” and not only got kicked out but lost his question from a very limited supply.

        • DPF’s super power is that he is always (and I mean ALWAYS) wrong when it comes to the best person for a political job. Here are his recent picks:
          – Hillary for Pres
          – Pete Buttgig for DNC nominee
          – Rory “soy boy” Bremner for Tory Leader over Boris
          – Nikki Kaye is amazing at everything she does
          – Soimon was the right man for the job in 2018
          – Todd is the right man for the job in 2020
          – Macron is going to be a unifying force in France if he beats Le Pen
          I could go on, but taking a wager on the exact opposite of what DPF predicts is usually likely to be a winning strategy.

      • I watched that clip as was not impressed that David Seymour was ejected. This a House of Parliament where debate will include, or should include such exchanges. My view is David Seymour was not offensive in the context of the event and the Speaker too quick to eject him.

        I thought any error, using the standards seemingly engaged by the Speaker, was first made by the Deputy Prime Minister using the term “sunshine” to refer to someone whose name he has for the moment forgotten.

  8. Judith Collins calls for clarity around ‘mind-boggling’ Covid-19 border exemptions

    The Government needs to come up with and release clear guidelines for border exemptions to help kickstart the economy again, National economic development spokesperson Judith Collins says.

    But the sailing teams don’t yet know if they can come in early and get the ball rolling, Ms Collins says.

    “[Mr Twyford] said he doesn’t even have the America’s Cup applications on his desk. It’s just mind-boggling difficult to get through this,” she says.

    “We need to make sure that [people wanting to enter the country] have very clear guidelines that they can meet, rather than an ad-hoc basis.”

    A search by 1 NEWS couldn’t find anywhere publicly available laying out the exemption requirements.

  10. Coronavirus: Wage subsidy kept 89 percent of businesses going during lockdown – Sepuloni
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/06/coronavirus-wage-subsidy-kept-89-percent-of-businesses-going-during-lockdown-sepuloni.html

    The Government’s $11 billion wage subsidy helped nine in 10 Kiwi businesses which received it survive the COVID-19 lockdown, says Minister for Social Development Carmel Sepuloni.

    The Government has released details of a survey it sent out to more than 90,000 businesses which received the wage subsidy, to help keep staff on at a time when many of them were shut down or operating with limited capacity.

      A Hamilton company owner has just phoned Peter Williams on Magic Radio to say she phoned Waitomo Caves to book 20 of her employees into a team building weekend this Saturday blackwater rafting and other challenges. She asked what they could offer her group and after a lot of excuses about only taking 12 people, etc, etc and the company owner chasing WC several times in an attempt to book in the end was told WC couldn’t take the booking!

    “Australia believes in what Ronald Reagan called the ‘truths and traditions’ that define the United States,” Morrison said. “We stand together in these self-evident truths. We stand together for personal liberty and freedom. For democracy and the ballot box. For the rule of law, and freedom of association. For free economies and free peoples.”

    Forgetting which side of politics you are on for a moment. Can you think of anyone in our Government who would think and speak about NZ like this –ie. getting down to the fundamentals of principles and beliefs ? I would go a step further and say there are only 2 or 3 three MPS in our Parliament who would think like this.

    My post is not in support of Scott Morrison but more to do with the fact that NZ MPs have lost the plot on what it is all about.

      (The last time I looked, “tradition” has a bad name in this woke Kiwi society, and truth is a malleable and flexible construct that can be bent in the way that is desired at the time.)

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/06/04/researchers-retract-study-that-found-big-risks-using-hydroxychloroquine-treat-covid-19/

      “The Study purportedly based on the health records of almost 100,000 patients around the world, found that hospitalized covid-19 patients treated with the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine — a drug repeatedly touted by President Trump — had a sharply higher risk of death and heart problems compared to those who did not receive the drug. It also showed the drug didn’t provide a benefit. The study was “observational,” which is less rigorous than a randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial.

      Almost immediately after the study’s publication, critics raised questions about the data and analysis provided by a private company, Chicago-based Surgisphere, and its founder, Sepan Desai. Another study that also relied on the database — one that looked at the effects of blood-pressure medications on covid-19 patients — also was retracted Thursday, by the New England Journal of Medicine.
      Desai, who was listed as one of four authors on the study, was not immediately available to comment.”

    It will be funded through the Government’s mammoth $50 billion COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund unveiled in Budget 2020.

    I am to happy announce that Navy Veteran, Michael White, who has been detained by Iran for 683 days, is on a Swiss plane that just left Iranian Airspace. We expect him to be home with his family in America very soon. I will never stop working to secure the release of all Americans held hostage overseas! Thank you Switzerland for your great assistance.

    Another quiet win for trump.

  27. Air NZ is planning to lay off another 2000 workers and E Tu aren’t happy. Hasn’t the penny dropped for the union guys yet ?
    How do they expect Air NZ to keep their workers busy if the business is down to about 20% of their previous activity ?

    Message to the unions —Air NZ is just the start !! there are many more businesses yet to start shedding staff, but it is inevitable.
    Much of it could have been avoided if COL had acted earlier. The same COL for which the unions are pulling the puppet strings in so many areas.

    Police Association angered by Green Party’s letter rallying against armed cops in wake of George Floyd’s death
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/06/police-association-angered-by-green-party-s-letter-rallying-against-armed-cops-in-wake-of-george-floyd-s-death.html

    The Green Party has angered the Police Association by sending a letter to the Police Commissioner urging him not to arm officers, in the wake of a US cop facing a murder charge over the death of George Floyd.

    The letter, penned by Greens co-leader Marama Davidson and justice spokesperson Golriz Ghahraman, warned the Police Commissioner against implementing the recent trial of Armed Response Teams across New Zealand.

    “We only have to look to the United States to see how violent things can get under a militarised police force,” Davidson said. “This is especially so for minorities and communities of colour.”

    • Keep it up Golly. The more crap you spew from your foul mouth results in less votes for the Luddite party.

      You are pathetic.

    • A bit late. Maybe they should have spoken out a year ago after the mosque shooting, when the cops, withNasha nd Ardern’s enthusiastic support, used it as an excuse to tool up, even though there was nomthreat. It is what Cahill and comrades had been wanting for years but never had an excuse.

  31. It’s not good enough.

    Farmers’ photos highlight lack of rural cell phone coverage
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2020/06/farmers-photos-highlight-lack-of-cell-phone-coverage-in-regions.html

    Farmers have been fighting for improved connectivity for years, but as highlighted by a number of photos shared online this week it seems there is still a way to go.

    The images, shared on Federated Farmers’ Facebook page, show the lengths that some farmers have to go to for a decent cell phone signal.

    • They have my sympathy. On our property there was one area of about 20 acres on the furthest ridge which attracted a couple of bars of 3G signal. Broadband near came & passed us by. The Chorus copper offering was slow while satellite was slow & expensive.

      If you looked at a relief map of the central Wairarapa it wasn’t hard to figure out why but it didn’t make doing business exactly easy.

    • You are correct.
      ,National had a program to improve rural broadband and eliminate cell phone black spots.
      Some gains were achieved in the face of Telcos ,Councils and others only doing what suited them.
      The value is clear ..Wireless set ups were about the only communication working during Te earthquake season..

      This value of the broadband infrastructure is so big it needs strong Governments to ensure it does happen and soon.
