  1. Good grief it must be driving the planets MSM media and their tens of thousands of minions insane that there is just no angle they can come up with to blame Trump for the F–K up in Libya.
    And of course the people most to blame Hillary Clinton and The black tracker Obama aren’t mentioned at all ,our media here are a frickin disgrace it’s 100% “orange man bad”.
    Just look at the little fagg Bryce Edwards this morning on Garners “3 hours for Jacinda” he just couldn’t bring himself to say that Muller had done a good job of clearing up the leaks problem in his caucus.
    Edwards is a rabid leftie C–T.

    • Yes, I think Todd handled this pretty well. Stayed calm, got legal advice, stuck to message, and didn’t get bullied by reporters. Did the best he could to recover from an unforced cock-up.

      • My thoughts too. This has actually made Todd look good and Adern bad. Quickly dealt with, nothing in Stuff this morning, unlike Labour’s issues which still hang around them like a bad smell.

        I couldn’t agree more with the opener above. Certainly her way or nothing. I have never seen such an undemocratic Government in action. Have they heard of the Select Committee process where they actually listen to the country?

        • Even then the bastards do not listen.

          The gun ‘hearing ‘ was two days with thousands of submission – often pragmatic – that they never listened to or read let alone take into account.
          The agenda had already been set.
          Post Truth.
          Post Democracy.

  2. Have a read of the new way of making our Law.
    somewhat concerning.

    The Supreme Court could be on the verge of another milestone development in our legal system.
    It seemed a strange legal pairing.
    If the court decides that tikanga has a major bearing on the argument about whether Ellis’ appeal should go ahead, it will represent a landmark decision. It will be the first time in the last 100 years that tikanga has been applied to an essentially Pākehā common law dispute.

    The Christchurch Civic Creche case and Māori traditional rules and tenets called tikanga.

    Lahttps://www.stuff.co.nz/national/122056368/the-peter-ellis-case-and-mori-customary-laww by stealth.Judgement by feelings.

    In concluding his 2013 paper, Justice Williams ponders the next steps for tikanga and New Zealand’s legal system and wonders whether judges will become agents for change as they become better trained to address tikanga.

    “Will the first law evolve in the way that the common law did: from a system of local custom to a more positivist system of judge-made law?

    “These are issues judges and the Māori community will be working through over the next generation. Lex Aotearoa is very much alive. It is still fragile but its survival is more certain now than in the past. It is demanding that we change to address its challenges. I hope we Aotearoans are up for it.’’

  3. Your opener is a sad commentary on where the current coalition has taken this country. Poorly considered law rushed through on a foot stamping whim without regard for accepted process or impact on citizens. Vast sums spent compensating for the inappropriate Arms Act amendments while being ineffective in achieving the stated purpose. That the stated purpose was without mandate did not stop the action being taken.

    The Oil and Gas decision made without obvious consideration or thought for consequence will impose unnecessary immediate and longterm costs on the communities directly affected and the nation.

    The wanton expenditure, daily increasing as we head towards the election, on a range of half baked projects that may produce short term manual work opportunities but little longterm employment, shows a lack of understanding of this taxpayers willingness to submit to the rapacious demands for more tax. Allocating bulk cash for the PGF may have been a Coalition deal but what a lemon in terms of good fiscal process. Each subsequent blow hard announcement just reminds me how governments waste money in a manner the taxpayer forced to contribute via income taxed at source can do little to prevent.

    • Posted late last night.
      On so many issues and points, the greatest costliest con job of virtue signalling for over half a century, of such godless mindless faith in “renewable’s being sustainable.

      But Germany didn’t just fall short of its climate targets. Its emissions have flat-lined since 2009.
      .
      Now comes a major article in the country’s largest newsweekly magazine, Der Spiegel, titled, “A Botched Job in Germany” (“Murks in Germany”). The magazine’s cover shows broken wind turbines and incomplete electrical transmission towers against a dark silhouette of Berlin.
      .
      “The Energiewende — the biggest political project since reunification — threatens to fail,” write Der Spiegel’s Frank Dohmen, Alexander Jung, Stefan Schultz, Gerald Traufetter in their a 5,700-word investigative story.
      .
      …. if renewables can’t cheaply power Germany, one of the richest and most technologically advanced countries in the world, how could a developing nation like Kenya ever expect them to allow it to “leapfrog” fossil fuels? …….
      .
      ……no amount of marketing could change the poor physics of resource-intensive and land-intensive renewables. ….
      .
      ….. The transition to renewables was doomed because modern industrial people, no matter how Romantic they are, do not want to return to pre-modern life.
      .
      ….. The reason renewables can’t power modern civilization is because they were never meant to.
      One interesting question is why anybody ever thought they could.

      Well worth the read, follow the hundreds of billions of $ Euros to unsustainable murderous heights that has played Pied Piper since the 1950’s.

    • Tiwai Point aluminium smelter to close next year
      https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/07/tiwai-point-aluminium-smelter-to-close-next-year.html

      The smelter is Southland’s biggest employer, with 1000 jobs and contractors working onsite. It contributes $400 million per year to the region’s economy.

      “As a result, NZAS [NZ Aluminium Smelters] has given Meridian Energy notice to terminate the power contract, which will end in August 2021, when the wind-down of operations is expected to complete.”

      “The strategic review concluded that the smelter, which has made Rio Tinto an underlying loss of NZ$46m in 2019, is not economically viable due to energy costs that are some of the highest in the industry globally, coupled with a challenging short to medium term aluminum outlook.”

    • Now we will smell the hydrogen on the CoL’s breath.
      Would they pull the hydrogen factor from Taranaki, and pass it to Bluff?

      What to do with all that spare electricity, that can not simply be spirited up to Auckland.

      Plenty of electric power for Invercargill.
      Now Mayor Tim can offer free electricity for all those electric cars, whoops they will have to wait until the free electric vechicle is govern-mentally supplied.

        “Invercargill, the EV capital of New Zealand!”
        “Invercargill, with the cheapest electricity in New Zealand!”
        “Invercargill, with New Zealand’s only fully electric university!”
        “Invercargill to change name to ‘Spark City’!”

        Surely this is an opportunity to attract industry to the region with super-cheap power offers. Win-win. Create jobs. Employ graduates. Boost the economy. What’s not to like!?

    Ministry of Health won’t say if Michelle Boag’s COVID-19 patient detail source claims true

    “I was sent it [the private patient information] legitimately by the Ministry of Health,” Boag said.

    She received a daily list of Covid-19 patients, and their personal details, as the acting chief executive of the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust (ARHT), Boag said, but added it was sent to her personal email.

    The Ministry of Health and government ministers declined to comment when contacted by RNZ last night.

    But the minister in charge of managed isolation Megan Woods has already confirmed emergency services were supplied the names of people infected with Covid-19 since the start of the government’s response.

    “That is an operational procedure that is standard and that’s because if emergency services need to come into contact with someone who has tested Covid positive for whatever reason, be that an airlift or whatever, that they have that information and make sure their staff is protected,” Woods said.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/07/australian-police-seize-4-6m-of-cash-from-car.html

    Police searched the car of Andrew Cross, 37, and found AU$1.75 million (NZ$1.85 million) stacked inside a suitcase, and a further AU$2.61 million (NZ$2.76 million) in a cardboard box, ABC reports. The cash was made up of $100, $50 and $20 notes.

    Police hadn’t yet determined the origin of the money, but an investigation is ongoing. Cross was charged with one count of receiving tainted property.

    Cross’ defence lawyer said in court on Wednesday he had no criminal history and had cooperated with police.

    Pompeo says the US is looking at cracking down on Chinese-owned cellphone apps – Tiktok included – because of safety fears for users’ private information.

    “It’s something we’re looking at,” he said. “Would you recommend people download that app on their phones tonight, tomorrow, anytime? Only if you want your private information in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.”

  11. Keep the immigrants coming in, encourage them to come. 🙁

    In October of 2019, Statistics Sweden revealed that mass migration has shifted the demographics of the country to such an extent that now around 20 per cent, or one-fifth, of all Swedes come from migration backgrounds — nearly two million people in total.
    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/07/05/swedish-pm-rejects-any-limits-on-asylum-seeker-migration/

    Just do not let those native Swedes into your country, as they will not learn, will not change, continue to vote for this, and will want to repeat this.

    Perhaps the Swedes have learnt the culturally approved maths, and the answer to 2+2=42 for the magical social welfare system that it has in place.

    JK Rowling part of group of 150 authors, academics criticising ‘cancel culture’ in Harper’s open letter
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/entertainment/2020/07/jk-rowling-part-of-group-of-150-authors-academics-criticising-cancel-culture-in-harper-s-open-letter.html

    The British author hit headlines last month after questioning the idea that “sex isn’t real” in a series of tweets, which LGBTQ activists condemned as transphobic – comments she later explained but refused to retract in a lengthy blog post.

    Now Rowling has joined a large group of famous names including Salman Rushdie and Margaret Atwood to denounce cancel culture – the online shaming of individuals who cause offence with their comments – in a letter published this week in Harper’s Magazine.

    In the letter, the group says that while a “needed reckoning” on racial justice has been a long time coming, it’s also contributed to a “vogue for public shaming and ostracism” and “a blinding moral certainty”.

    Pharmac to lift dispensing restrictions, caused by Covid-19, for most meds

    Pharmac is about to ease its restrictions on the amount of medicine that can be dispensed at once, with supply issues easing for most of the drugs.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/pharmac-lift-dispensing-restrictions-caused-covid-19-most-meds

    From August 1, pharmacists will be able to hand out a three-month supply of most medications again.

    In total, restrictions remain on 16 medications, Pharmac says.

    Pharmacies have been asked to dispense remaining repeats in single-month lots where possible, to help manage the supply as they resume regular operation, according to Pharmac.

  16. Visa rules relaxed for stranded seasonal workers, farm employees
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2020/07/visa-rules-relaxed-for-stranded-seasonal-workers-farm-employees.html

    However, the workers will need to have an employment agreement with an RSE employer, who will need to continue to honour commitments under the RSE scheme, Lees-Galloway said.

    The change allows workers to move around the country freely to take up job opportunities not necessarily related to the work they were previously doing.

    “Around 9000 seasonal workers are still in New Zealand, a number of those stranded with no flights home and no way to support themselves after the harvest season has ended,” Lees-Galloway said on Wednesday.

    He then goes round the corner where a plasterer is working, “This bloke is from Liverpool and because he’s a scouser, we call him Wack”

    Finally they come to a guy laying cement and says”Here is Mac, he’s from Scotland”

    So the Foreman leaves the Frenchman to his labour and back to his office to work.

    Suddenly he hears a commotion coming from outside and goes out and sees the poor Frenchman being set upon by the four other men so he shouts from the top of the steps,

    “Mick, Mac, Paddy, Wack, leave the Frog alone”

    The statement also said the full plan will not be finalised until after the Government releases the Pre-Election Economic and Fiscal Update (PREFU) in August.

    National says it will be available by September 2 when overseas voting begins, to be followed by early voting, which starts on September 5.

Then, disown me and never talk to me again. Don’t forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to any charity you choose.”

        There are plenty of protected low lifes.

        The average white Brit has always been at the end of a boot, they just treated the Irish worse to make it look not so bad.

        That is why the inquiry into the child sexual abuse was deliberately collapsed multiple times – the one that Lowell Goddard sat on. She was previously married to Sir John Scott, 5th Baronet at one stage and had a child into that family. She was not naive.
        It was all a sham.
        Even the survivors representative group called it quits.
        There was some very dirty stuff going on.
