  1. How Strange our Country has become ,we have a man with no experience in infrastructure that specialises in porn and fiddling with his junk in charge of six billion dollars of taxpayers cash.
    What a gutless bunch of people we have become when this sort of shit is happening in front of our eyes,have others noticed how the bloated Jones has toned down his rhetoric lately ?his arsehole boss has had a stern whisper in his ear and jones has complied.
    But its ok folks Jones has fixed it all by calling it “PUTEA” whatever that means FFS.
    I know its been said before but we are truly sliding towards Communism,given a chance Jones will start buying up private business’s that are nearing bankruptcy caused by his COLs policies .
    WE ARE F—KED..

    • You need to do your homework. Jones has been doing stuff for a longtime.
      Whilst various shades of Govt. haven’t unless it suited their political agenda.
      Productive parts of NZ have been left to die in favour of Auckland and Wellington and Christchiurch.
      Northland, Gisbourne, Eastern BOP, Hawkes Bay, Wairarapa, Taranaki to name a few.
      We don’t make much money from a Casino or a hotel, the odd rugby game, a bit of sailing, buliding shopping centres for imported crap but we survive thanks to agriculture and that sector has got the recognition it deserves.
      If in a fair world you had to earn oversea’s currency so you can buy what you want imnported you would starve. There was a time when that was almost the case.
      (Not saying we should go back there but when you buy an imported good you are spending someone else’s hard earned cash which a money trader has swapped between parties, clipping the ticket on the way past ).
      Too many desk warriors in both parties managing everything that can be done without their interference. RMA anyone?

      Todd gets that.

  2. Interesting that Glorious Leader keeps telling us that it’s the isolation in quarantine that really matters, and testing is just a “belts and braces” measure, and yet she’s hitting the panic button over the 367 folk who left isolation without a test, who they can’t contact. She’s getting all pissy because of her fuck-up.

    “Do your bit,” said Ardern. “Get back in contact. It’s a small thing that you can do as a member of our team of five million.”

    • Caught in her own lie.

      The slapper said they were being tested at day 3 and day 12.
      They were not.
      As I don’t bother with the sycophants who call themselves media in NZ I dont know if there is follow up but
      >> Ardern lied.
      >Then won’t take responsibility for her lies.

      The real questions are:-
      1) Was the instruction given to not test – because clearly that was what happened – no testing –
      and was this intended all along?
      The basis being that they knew that importing thousands of people from diseased places would bring in the virus but did not want to show up the numbers, so …no test, no stats

      The follow up question:
      2) was there no testing in order to import Covid to therefore scaremonger in August to create another lockdown to manipulate the election ?

      Given the behaviour of the Sandringham Slapper to date there was no intention to ‘eliminate’ ; just to grandstand to the apparatchiks of the Alt World Govt-controlled world media filth.

      Healthy people are not so easy to control.
      It is easier to control when they cower in fear.

      I contend the idea was to maintain the fear.
      The imported people were tools for Totalitarian control.
      The rest is just white noise.

    • The egalitarian dream is circling the shitter for sure. Private & public pay CEOs huge amounts of money to screw things up then even more to get rid of them when the damage gets too bad to cover up. Maori babies are brought up & abused in damp hovels while their venal kaumatua park their BMWs on the marae so they can run another hui about the dispossessed Tangata Whenua.

      Everything’s yap, consultation is rife, feelz are everywhere. But nothing happens.

    • Never lost, just spread around.
      I guess you would be a Key fan. 25 Million on a flag referendum, Millions on cycle ways that have been robbed of the motorists and continue with even more vigour by these lousy governors from the Greens. Millions on Rugby world Cup, Millions on many other things that took most people no place. Millions on Pike river for a nil result, Shutting down oil and gas, giving millions to lots of things we never hear about, giving millions off shore to various charities including the Clinton outfit.
      Don’t bother to moan about money being wasted.
      Even if you don’t think so Jones has a management group doing lots of vetting.
      Some stuff will fail but that’s the price of taking a punt.
      Banks are loathe to do it because it doesn’t make their shareholders rich like lending on housing and credit cards does.

  4. I’ve pretty much lost any respect I ever had for Judith Collins, and I rated her pretty highly once. But her friendship with Slater (who I now realise lives on favours, grudges and revenge), her handling of the firearms fiasco, and now the ill-timed release of her self-serving book, have turned me right off. (Not that I have, or will, read the book).

      • Related to the slug, Slater?
        Evidence please?
        Joseph Parker is her nephew in her husband’s side.
        But, Slater…

        I was put off completely by her complete lack of ability to make a decision over the David Bain compensation.
        A yes or no.
        She dithered for years and left the portfolio without making a decision while burning up time with words, blaming Binnie etc.

        You were the Minister.
        You had wads of information the public did not.
        Make a bloody decision or piss off.
        Gutless.
        All her yakkedy crap about crushing cars just shows she is hot air.

        I guess she is largely self serving.
        The colleagues of Andrew Little did not want him are party leader.
        They worked with him and knew what he was like.
        He only got there because of the Union vote.
        Similarly, the colleagues of Collins who work with her don’t want her in charge.
        Tells you what you need to know.

  6. Duncan Garner: Immigrants in New Zealand should not be entitled to full pension at 65 after just 10 years
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/07/duncan-garner-immigrants-in-new-zealand-should-not-be-entitled-to-full-pension-at-65-after-just-10-years.html

    In fact, 2500 Kiwis earning over $300,000 a year still opted in to receive the payment despite their huge income. It’s their birthright – 40 years of hard slog.

    But for new New Zealanders or recent immigrants, you only have to spend 10 years here before getting the pension.

    No wonder immigrants have flocked here. These people could come here, go to sleep for ten years – and literally wake up and sign up.

    Here’s the guts: a New Zealand First private members bill passed its crucial first reading on Wednesday night, forcing all immigrants to have lived here for at least 20 years before they can waltz on up and pick up the pension. I reckon it should be 25, but 20 is better than 10.

    Most parties voted for it, and in these post COVID times, increasingly we will have to put the needs and demands of Kiwis first – look after our public finances and our future.

    • That took its time.
      That was NZ First policy in 2017 that I strongly agree with.

      You have people who have moved here that never speak English, live with their own lot and have come here on family reunification (usually from kids that came here ‘to study’ ) that get a pension through zero contribution.

      In fact we have the situation where students have come here from China ‘to study’ who get PR then citizenship, bring in their parents in their 40s, who in turn bring in their parents who are in their 60s and never partake in NZ society.
      I discussed this with a Gnat party MP in 2012.

      Oh, poor old granny and grandpa, there is no pension in China, we have to look after them.
      The original ‘student’ can then go overseas and work for better money in say Singapore and leave the Kiwi taxpayer to look after Granny.
      It has been a shocker for 30 years.

      Also needs to apply to Kiwis who leave for OE, work overseas for decades, then return here for the pension despite contributing nothing.
      Often those over 55 today also had free university and took that overseas for someone else’s benefit.
      In fact if they went to University that was 17 years free education (5 to 21/22).
      No pension for you!

      • Receiving the pension if you have lived away from NZ for a long period is not that cut and dry.
        You have to have lived in NZ for a period of 5 years ( or 10 I’ll check ) between the age of 50 to 65.
        If you havent you will still receive the pension but it will be adjusted down, you wont be entitled to the full amount.

  9. It’s economics stupid!

    If taxes don’t go up, spending will have to be slashed – economist
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/if-taxes-don-t-go-up-spending-will-have-to-be-slashed-economist.html

    Cameron Bagrie says if taxes don’t go up, something else will have to give.

    “Government debt is gonna be in excess of 50 percent of GDP. We’re gonna have to get that down at some stage,” he told The AM Show on Thursday.

    Instead, Bagrie says parties are going to have to raise taxes, sell assets, lift the retirement age and/or exercise “extraordinarily tight spending restraint”.

    “We’re gonna have to go down one of those routes – the issue is, which one’s more credible and believable, and what do each party stand for?”

    • Problem is that the coalition have already committed money. A lot of money. And some of it, too much of it, is for nonsense.

      I am not inclined to agree that taxation should be increased to cover the wanton drain and debt increasing factor running at present. Rather than increasing taxation, a better solution is cut the expenditure, hold back to welfare vote buying, slash the waste, give the taxpayer a break.

    Officers, wearing extra protective gear, entered the “autonomous zone” early and by mid-morning had arrested 23 people, including one man with a metal pipe and kitchen knife, according to the police department’s Twitter feed. Police reported no violent interactions.

    Police moved to retake the zone after Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan declared the gathering in and around the police department’s East Precinct and Cal Anderson Park an “unlawful assembly,” the police chief, Carmen Best, said in a statement that highlighted a recent spate of shootings.

  13. Good luck mate. Bunnings employees made redundant in close down.

    Long-serving Bunnings employee takes future into own hands as stores close across NZ

    Larry Waterhouse has worked at Bunnings for 20 years and is known as a people person with top-notch know-how.

    But all of that changed yesterday when the 60-year-old’s store, Bunnings Rangiora, closed.

    Newly unemployed, Mr Waterhouse is starting his own business and isn’t letting the skills he learnt after many years at Bunnings go to waste.

    While one chapter may be ending, he’s decided to start an in-home DIY consultancy.

    “Someone suggested, why not walk in through the front door, ‘Hi, it’s the DIY guy,’ and I just thought, ‘OK, we’ll see what happens.’”

    • I hope he does well.
      Yesterday I heard a story of a motel owner who had some work to do and got a builder to quote hem for it –the quote came in at a couple of thousand. The guy’s friend said that was stupid –just take a photo of the situation and go to Mitre 10 or Bunnings and ask them how to do the job. So the motel owner does that (even though he hasn’t ever done much DIY). The Bunning’s guy looks at it and wrote down a step by step process to do the job and showed him what to buy for it. He said a tradesman might take a couple of hours to do it he should be able to it in 4-5 hours. The guy went away with his purchases and followed the instructions –job done!

  19. National Party reshuffle: Māori MP Shane Reti promoted, Simon Bridges gets foreign affairs portfolio
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/national-party-reshuffle-m-ori-mp-shane-reti-promoted-simon-bridges-gets-foreign-affairs-portfolio.html

    National leader Todd Muller has announced that Māori MP Shane Reti has been promoted to number 13 in the party’s rankings, while former leader Simon Bridges has been given the foreign affairs portfolio.

    Bennett’s drug reform and women portfolios will be taken by senior MP Amy Adams and current deputy leader Nikki Kaye, respectively. Adams will work with Dr Reti who has been given the associate drug reform role.

    The foreign affairs role was given to senior MP Gerry Brownlee in Muller’s first reshuffle back in May. Muller told reporters on Thursday he consulted with Brownlee and ultimately decided to give the portfolio to Bridges.

    But Bridges will not feature high on National’s list. H is ranked number 17 – Dr Reti’s previous placement. Brownlee is ranked number six, and holds the spy portfolios, the disarmament portfolio, and is Shadow Leader of the House.

    MPs have lashed out at David Clark on social media following the former Health Minister’s resignation, with one poking fun at his past indiscretions.

    Following the announcement, National Party MP Simeon Brown couldn’t help but share a tongue-in-cheek reference to Clark’s highly-publicised lockdown breaches.

    “BREAKING NEWS: David Clark has resigned as Health Minister,” Brown posted to his official Facebook page, followed by an emoji of a woman on her bike.

    ACT Party leader David Seymour also laid into the former minister following his resignation announcement.

    “Too much kindness, not enough competence. The PM was happy with a Health Minister who left the Beehive for the greatest health crisis in a century, broke the public health rules twice, and blamed the guy who did his job when it all went wrong. Even then, he had to sack himself.”

      • You people are so mean, for poking the borax at rev david clark!
        He was just so effective as the health minister. He was just about at the top off the labour cacus as the result of his hard work and knowledge.
        He was just so effective working from many homes during the lockdown.
        He kept fit by riding his bike, so he could spend hours on the computor, without taking a break. Except to take mommy and the kids to the beach, to get rid of the cobwebs!
        It was kind of Cindy to send him home during the lockdown, when he was just so effective duriing his time in Wellington and he was so popular with staff and the media. He will be sorely missed by all!

    David Clark’s resignation ‘too little, too late’ – Todd Muller
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/david-clark-s-resignation-too-little-too-late-todd-muller.html

    “National has been calling for his resignation for months following successive failures, including breaking lockdown rules and, most recently, having two women leaving quarantine who weren’t tested for COVID-19, under his watch,” he said.

    “Clark did not deliver to the standards that we expected, neither through the lockdown or the border management in recent weeks, which has been utterly shambolic.”

    He said Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern must take responsibility after she “failed” to fire Clark in April when he offered his resignation.

    “She declined Clark’s offer to resign when he decided to break his own lockdown rule not once, not twice, but three times in April,” Muller said.

    “The question has to be asked; why did she repeatedly fail to fire him?”

    Michigan House Passes Human Microchipping Legislation

    RFID tags in humans could be used for all sort of things. It could store medical information, birthdate, or emergency contact info. There are many good things that could come from the technology. However, as is typical with new technology; there are very bad things too.

    With everyone walking around with a unique identifier, privacy is out the window. It will be very difficult to prevent 3rd parties from reading the unique identifier on the tag. This means anyone could track you. Stores could track your entry and exit, showing you targeted ads. Thieves could be signaled when you leave your home. Your movements and contacts could be used against you in any number of ways, including identity theft.

    The Electoral (Integrity) Amendment Bill, also known as the ‘waka jumping’ Bill, was passed into law in September 2018. Introducing and passing the legislation is part of Labour and New Zealand First’s coalition agreement.

    It passed with begrudging support from the Green Party despite speaking out against similar legislation in the early 2000s. But there is now a chance to repeal it and National is calling on the Greens for support.

  30. Cindy’s glitter mask has slipped. Will all those who think she is so lovely notice she is twisting the truth?

    PM Jacinda Ardern was pushing David Clark out as Health Minister while publicly saying he’d stay until election
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/pm-jacinda-ardern-was-pushing-david-clark-out-as-health-minister-while-publicly-saying-he-d-stay-until-election.html

    “He reached the conclusion his ongoing presence in the health role was causing too much distraction to the Government’s response to COVID-1 – an assessment I agree with,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.

    “Under normal circumstances I would sack the minister,” she said at the time.

    With those eight words, the Prime Minister delivered Dr Clark a fate worse than sacking – stripping him of the authority to do his job.

    But Dr Clark dug in, saying he had no plans to resign again.

    “I am certainly very keen to get on with this,” he told Newshub Nation in June.

    The Prime Minister doubled down in Queenstown last Friday when asked if Dr Clark would hold onto his job until the election at least.

    “Of course, that is what I’ve continued to say.”

    But we now know that around that same time late last week the Prime Minister was edging Dr Clark out.

    Newshub asked the Prime Minister if she in any way insinuated or suggested to Dr Clark that she wanted him to offer his resignation.

    “No, it was a very open conversation,” she said.

    And in that “very open conversation” the Prime Minister gave him the kiss of death – making it clear he was becoming a distraction so close to an election.

  31. The German government plans to terminate its contract with the country’s accounting watchdog, FREP. Wirecard filed for insolvency last week after a multi-billion fraud was uncovered.

    The company collapsed on Thursday owing creditors almost $4 billion.

    Its auditor EY will now face a lawsuit from a Shareholders’ association. It accuses EY of not flagging Wirecard’s accounting practices earlier.

  32. The year is 2020. There are machines which can look through skin & see your bones. There are machines which keep you alive when your brain & heart have stopped. There’s even a machine that can tell you who your parents are with a single drop of spit.

    But when I need my prostate checked a man sticks his finger up my arsehole & wriggles it about a bit.

  33. Chris McGlade recites his 2018 poem “The Right To Hate”, from his hometown in the north of England.
    A working man’s view of left-wing intolerance.
    https://youtu.be/ZcWB6nfB0tw
    8 min ;13 sec.
    There is a good preamble of first 2 minutes, then the poem.
    Poem Concludes at 7 min 2 secs.

    “The Right to Hate”
    You tell me what I can’t say, you censor what I can
    You say I’m offensive because I believe my eyes when I say I see a woman, not a man.
    You call me thick and racist for not wanting to be a part
    of a rich man’s club in Europe, or a Global New World Order with no soul, or guts or heart.
    You throw at me the slave trade and tell me my 4 year old grandson is to blame
    You point your branding, accusing, intolerant fingers and tell me to hang my head in shame.
    I’m free to have opinions as long as they fall in line with yours.
    I can fly my banners high and proud as long as you support that cause.
    You have to be right, all the time, yours is the only way.
    I have to like the things you like be they black, trans, left or gay.
    It makes no difference if I tell you I’m not the things for which you accuse,
    because once you’ve made up your closed-off minds, I’m always going to lose.
    “I have black friends.”, “So, you’re STILL a racist. Homophobic.”,
    “But I’ve shared beds with gay men.”
    I’m an anti-semite but the Rothschilds is the richest banking family but that’s got nothing to do with them,
    being Jewish and everything to do with them being multi-billionaires, really do influence the dollar, pound and yen.
    You sip your Pinot Grigio in trendy bars down in the smoke,
    looking down your nose with loathesome contempt at billions of working-class folk.
    Well I’ve come here to tell you that you have had your time,
    because the winds of change are blowing and bells of freedom will chime.
    Cuz my class, my fucking class are waking up and stirring and we’re going to peacefully attack.
    We’re going to breach those PC walls of segregation that have divided white and black.
    I’ve got no malice in my heart, I don’t judge people on their sex or creed or race.
    I don’t speak ill of absolute cunts behind their back, not even the bloke who murdered me Dad, I just tell them to their face.
    So to all you branding, progressive liberals who won’t allow debate,
    I hate no man nor woman, I just want the right to hate.
    I want the right to hate, like I want the right to love.
    I want to like and dislike what I want to like and dislike, and be able to vocalize it both.
    I’m not responsible for slavery and I’m not taking any blame.
    Because the white privilege built on black slavery you say that I enjoy, well,
    Beyonce, Jay-Z, Oprah Winfrey, Rihanna, Floyd Mayweather, Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx, Barack Obama et al, enjoy the same.
    Beyonce has spent 87 million dollars on a house just through shaking that ass.
    While me and my lass at home are lamenting about ways to pay the fucking gas.
    And I don’t see too much white privilege in a system that lets in European refugees, while wounded soldiers live in cardboard boxes.
    Why do black lives matter and progressives fail to see, not all white folks live in stately homes chasing fucking foxes.
    And I’m not homophobic, transphobic, racist or anything phobic, you see.
    Because I don’t fear race or sex or gender , I just won’t bow down to your PC.
    Don’t confuse my use of slang for racism or bigotry, don’t confuse my rejection of your shite with spite.
    Don’t naturally assume I’m thick and racist because I’m northern working-class, I’m not. I’m articulate, sharp and bright.
    And I will not walk a minefield every time I open my mouth to speak.
    And I will not apologize for things I’ve glibly said or spoken tongue-in-cheek.
    So shape up or fuck off for your madness, cuz I’m gonna bring you down.
    I’m going to bring working-class people, all people, together. Muslim, Christian, white and brown.
    I’m going to bring those globalist walls of Jericho crashing on your brainwashed, liberal feet.
    And I’m going to blow my loving, inclusive unPC fanfare. And your communist, fascist, capitolist, sourcelist, left, right, Catholic, protestant, muslim, Christian, black, white, gay, straight, male, female, leave, remain, republican, democrat, afraid of covid 19, unafraid of covid 19, north, south divides…..I will defeat.
    You globalists…you’ve divided us and conquered us for way too long. You’ve taken the piss out of us and you’ve laughed at us and you’ve shared the benefits up at the top.
    Well I’ve come back to this northern working-class shrine in my hometown of Redcar to tell ya, now really is the time for your shit to fucking stop. Peace.

  34. David Seymour was an entertaining, interesting and thought-provoking speaker at the Napier Sailing Club tonight. The meeting was well attended, well organised – or both, with just about all the chairs filled.

          • I felt that Seymour said what he thought (and that he’d spent some time thinking first), and would do what he said.
            I like that his time in Parliament hasn’t cured him of a desire to innovate.
            I liked the energy he brought to discussion on smarter approaches to healthcare, welfare, education.
            I liked that he isn’t distracted by ‘small-beer’ causes like prisoner voting.
            I liked that he has an awareness of the Law of Unintended Consequences, like making health insurance premiums or private school fees tax deductible. (Although I notice that he ‘gets’ the concept of slippery slope for those things but not for euthanasia – where we differ greatly in our views).
            I liked his humour and his ability to speak with confidence without falling over his own ego.

  35. ‘He wasn’t up to the job’: How MPs reacted to David Clark’s resignation as Health Minister
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/he-wasn-t-up-to-the-job-how-mps-reacted-to-david-clark-s-resignation-as-health-minister.html

    Reaction has been almost unanimous – Dr David Clark’s resignation as Health Minister was the right call.

    Members of Parliament backed his decision to step away from the health portfolio.

    “The reality is David Clark was not up to the job and he should have gone some time ago,” National’s deputy leader Nikki Kaye says.

    “He realised he needed to go before the Prime Minister did,” ACT leader David Seymour said.

    Other colleagues were simply brutal. Asked whether she was sad Dr Clark had stepped down, fellow Labour MP Anahila Kanongata’a-Suisuiki said “absolutely not”.

    “We’re a team of 5 million and we’ve all got to do our bit,” she said. “He’s taking a role in the team of 5 million.”

    Who is she? Definitely swallowed the koolaid! 🤨
