      • Ed ,Iv’e always said all119 of those arsehats in Wellington are useless pricks and as I value my integrity I wont be changing my mind now.
        PS ,number 120 is David Seymour ,party vote ACT…LOL.
        Of course we want crusher to wipe the emaciated smile off Arderns face I just dont have any confidence that she will be any different to the rest .
        She’s been in the swamp for decades so she must be comfortably numb like all the others,for me its a single issue vote ,Seymour was the only one who said taking guns from law abiding citizens was WRONG. PARTY VOTE ACT.

        • RT120 – If you’re an Act fan, you need to put a bit more heft into supporting National.
          In no one’s wildest imagination will Act get 61 seats.
          Act will not participate in future government unless National can make a decent go of taking the centre votes. The Collins-led National Party has the potential to achieve that.
          Go Judith – you good thing.

          • Wise words Harvey. Thanks to Judith and Gerry winning the leadership I woke up this morning with a positivity I haven’t felt for National for a long time. Neither of them take prisoners, are quick with a verbal jab and after years of experience can handle the likes of Ardern and Robbo. As Judith says, “I won’t let Jacinda get away with any of her nonsense.” NZ First will feel undermined as Judith supports a strong criminal justice system and the police force won’t be allowed to be tainted by politics under her watch.

            Crusher v glitter and no substance.

          • Harvey – you miss the point, party vote ACT does two thing (at least), first more ACT MPs means in a National led Govt they may be the deciding votes so some of their ideas & policies will become legislation, second it will be a clear signal to National that their current policy settings are not shared by enough of their core support base to warrant two tick blue and some National list MP’s will become ex MP,s and be a warning to other list MP’s who support the past woke ineffective policies that caused the loss of their voter base and seat. Still up ticked you though.

            • Not really.
              Even if Act end up with (Let’s say) 10 wonderful seats, Nats need 51. (That’s 61 minus Act)
              If Nats only end up with 49 Act is still not in a position of influence and it’s three more years of CoL for you and for me.
              There was only one direction a Muller-led National Party was heading and it was south of 61 minus Act.

              But your tick made my day.

  2. “Our team is better than their team” and “I won’t be taking any of Jacinda’s nonsense.”

    Judith Collins: Now ‘right time’ to become leader, claims National united behind her
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/judith-collins-now-right-time-to-become-leader-claims-national-united-behind-her.html

    “I like to think that everybody voted for me because that is the way that we work it, if we even had a vote. We are not discussing what happened in the caucus room, but I can tell you that we emerged a very strong team.”

    “In the end, you would have seen that the caucus came down to the first press conference all supporting me, and that is the way that I like to believe it all happened. Everything with everyone supporting me and Gerry.”

    • Of all the known quantities in National right now, Collins is certainly the most visible in being able to knock Ardern off her perch. In that regard, I hope Collins does well…and that translates to votes away from the COL.

      I still won’t be voting for National especially with Collins at the helm. She is not committed to freedoms as evidenced by her statements in 2019.

          • Yesterday I would have agreed with you.

            Now it’s party vote National and possibly electoral vote ACT. My National MP has a huge majority so will not hurt him.

            Going by the number of hysterical phone calls on the radio this morning the left is very very worried.

            • Other way around if you want the best result under MMP. As you say your electoral MP will be in parliament with his “huge majority” so Act need your PARTY VOTE.
              The higher the party vote the more MPs Act will receive. Win – win

            • No, that is the worst thing you can do in terms of getting Labour voted out apart from voting for New Zealand First, Labour or The Greens.

              This is what our last election looked like in terms of seats.

              National and ACT has 57 seats between them. Labour, The Greens and NZF have 63 seats between them. And we fill all 120 seats in parliament.

              This is what current polling looks like, if we keep the same electorates.

              National and ACT have 51 seats, Labour and the Greens have 69 seats.

              Now, let’s play a bit of hypothetical here. Let’s take the last election and look at the changes in voting blocks.

              Between National and NZF they lose a bit of support to ACT. I don’t think NZF voters will swing to Labour. We reduce NZF to their current polling and take off National so we can get ACT To 3.5% and we can get New Conservatives to 1%. We drop the Greens to their current polling and we boost Labour numbers by those of the Greens. And that looks like this.

              This is a bit artificial, because I think Labour will be stronger than this. But notice the lack of electoral seats for New Conservatives, the Greens and NZF means they are out of parliament.

              Labour ends up with 58 seats, National ends up with 57 and the support partners in ACT adds + 5, for a total of 62.

              41 of National’s 57 seats come from electorates. Only 16 come from the list. The Party vote for ACT means we are more likely to win under MMP. Party vote for National, New Conservatives, the unregistered New Zealand Public Party, etc. are all ways to give Labour another election. The only way to win this is by having a coalition.

              Play around with the numbers, put in what you think are likely to happen.

              • I have argued that because National get a large number of electorate seats then much of their party vote is “wasted”. That is, under MMP the number of list seats they get does not really reflect the party vote support. ( In the last election National got more party votes than Labour but Labour got more list seat when it was sorted.)
                So National can afford to lose quite a few party votes to ACT and their position is not really affected.
                Have I got that right?

  4. Going after the Party vote according to Gerry.

    well no.
    Party vote Act.
    The Nats. are still woke.
    Didn’t fix the RMA, didn’t support free speech.
    Didn’t support the gun owners and don’t support property rights like they should.
    Just a nicer face of the same socilism.

    • I might have reluctantly given National a pass on the RMA since they claimed that they didn’t have the votes 2014 – 2017 to do it.

      Their lack of commitment to freedom, and that was fully expressed by Collins in 2019, means I will not support them.

    • Hey Gerry –yes the party vote is important to you but your real strength, at the moment, is the large number of electorate seats you have. Make sure you keep them ALL and hopefully pick up a few more. David Seymour will look after the party vote for you.

    • That shows you the National Party does not understand MMP; they are still stuck in a FPP mindset. With the strength of their electorates, if they take the party vote off ACT, they will lose this election.

          • Cap 1, you say
            ‘Those polls they rolled Bridges on were utter garbage’

            This reflects that National are out of touch then.
            One more than one front.
            1. the wee weasel Fruity Farrar (let’s be clear, I don’t like him and his pussy hat ways ) has run the polls. Were they correct?
            He is shit useless at picking winners.
            His mojo was John Key. His mojo left years ago.

            2. They do not seem to have an instinct of people’s feelings like Notional did say 40 years ago.
            The two party system then made it easier of course. Very Binary.
            Now there are more players with fused policies.

            This lack of instinct is a concern.
            It is a clear sign they are out of touch and the selection of Munted Muller shows they seemed to have thought cannabis was already legalised !

  5. Last night’s comments on the blog with the slowest moderation on the planet wrote themselves in the style of retarded rottweillers. Typical (including spelling) were this:

    ……”Judith please move more to the right, Ive had quite enough of this labor lite rubbish”……

    Where exactly are all of these right votes sitting at the moment? The Godaddled New Conservatives are not even registering in the polls & ACT has a libertarian bias hardly likely to attract the slobbering control freaks of the hard right. NZ First’s flag should be a pair of wet incontinence pants.

    The writers should face facts & admit that NZ Inc has slid left. We’re not voting along a Left/Right chasm & that is on the off chance that anyone could define Left/Right in today’s world.

    Instead we’re voting for sane management that will give us a chance of economic survival!

  6. United Kingdom 5G network to be purged of Huawei by 2027
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/07/united-kingdom-5g-network-to-be-purged-of-huawei-by-2027.html

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered Huawei equipment to be purged completely from Britain’s 5G network by the end of 2027, risking the ire of China by signalling that the world’s biggest telecoms equipment maker is not welcome in the West.

    Reversing a January decision to allow Huawei to supply up to 35 percent of the non-core 5G network, Johnson banned British telecoms operators from buying any 5G equipment from Huawei by year-end and gave them seven years to rip out existing gear.

    • I think it has finally dawned on quite a few people that China (CCP) is hostile to Western values and that this hostility to us means that Huawei could be weaponised against us…even if they haven’t been weaponised yet.

      Has anyone been following the events on the Indo-China border in the last few months? (Just as yet another data point on China’s ambitions and disregard for others).

    • It was pretty weird that the Brits were still running the cold war against Russia well after 1991.
      The British writers made their dough from repeat stories about Reds and under the bed . Le Carre, Forsyth et al.
      Even they could not wind down after 1990.

      Treason May continued the behaviour in the last 3 years of Russia Baiting while welcoming China – building and/or owning ports and other infrastructure.
      They really were disconnected.
      Their intelligence services are for shit and have generally been run by ‘chaps who went to the right school’
      This has allowed no fresh thinking.

      Britain for the last 70 years has been very self destructive except for the Thatcher years and too many of the Brits hated that. (Although a lot of that was the media scum, the same scum we see in NZ)
      No sympathy for their predicament .
      Put fresh talent on the front lines, not old school chaps and chapesses with the right family name.
      The world is moving too fast for Britain and they are too slow to change.

      Their traditional enemies have been Germany and France. But they embraced them in 1973 then realised what a terrible mistake it all was.
      The Russians have been their allies for the most part.
      The Chinese are their enemy and the Chinese have not forgotten the humiliation of the 1800s and the destruction of the opium wars.

      The Brits need a massive wake up call, stat.

If the general public realised just how left leaning the vast majority of journalists are, the media would be even more despised than they currently are.

  8. Right, it only took 3+ years to get here and now there’s only 9 weeks until the election

    So the first thing we need to look for is the ugly sexism, ageism and racism of the left being paraded to it’s full glory now. We are going to see the corrupt media try to trap Collins into the same race/gender/age traps that nice-but-dim Muller (and the just plain dim Kaye) were so keen on bumbling into. We are also going to see Labour at their most desperate and most vile as they try to dig up all the shit that Key used to do a series of hit jobs on Collins (in fact, I fully expect Key to come slithering out and do a massive character assassination of Collins to please his Chinky paymasters..

    Brownlee is going to be painted as a fat racist Nazi. We’re going to see how the Left think that rules and conventions don’t apply to them as they go after Collins’ husband for his race, for his business dealings and for his very existence.

    And the fuckers in the National caucus, well they are eating shit big time this morning. They put short-term self-preservation above their idiotic socialist views on things and they finally buckled to their constituents who I’m sure (like I did) sent off messages to their National MPs saying “FFS 3rd time lucky, get it right, vote for Judith”. And you know that as the true shit-eating left wingers that they are – they need to have someone to blame for their massive feelings of inadequacy and offense at having finally being forced into doing what their voter base wanted.

    And you know who those wankers are going to blame for their feelings of inadequacy – that’s right! They’re going to blame Judith! And like the true leftist idiots that they are – they are going to want to see her fail – so that they can expunge the terrible feeling of worthlessness they are currently feeling (even if it means losing their seats at the General Election).

    All those mincing, panty-waisted, lisping losers that occupy the National caucus now – well they’re going to be leaking to the media like a government department when National are in power.

    Still, at least Todd’s resignation has created an opportunity for the voting public to have a choice now.

    I was leaning to NC but I’m still locked into party vote ACT – but my uninspiring local Nat candidate might just have garnered my vote yesterday now that Collins is where she should have been back in 2015 when Key decided to throw her under the bus because she was looking like a better leadership option than he was.

  10. I just had a call from my staunch National supporting 96 year old aunty , who is still sharper than most 40 year olds. After discussing what we both thought, she told me that in her street last night when the result came through there was yelling and screaming of delight and hooting of car horns —this is in a quiet street in Khandallah, Wellington. Admittedly this is a reasonably conservative area but maybe there is a big silent majority out there.

    • Judith Collins’ rise changes ‘energy’ ahead of election, but commentators debate if National is showing ‘desperation’

      “The difference between when Judith and Gerry emerged from that caucus room last night to 54 days ago when Nikki and Todd emerged. Nikki and Todd came out and they were frowning, they looked uncertain. Last night, it was like a great ocean liner just roaring down the corridor.”

      Referencing the start of a wrestling match, Sherson said: “Let’s get ready to rumble”.

      Sherson believes that, unlike previous leaders, Collins “can get cut-through” and pointed to how she picked apart Phil Twyford and the Government’s KiwiBuild programme.

      “That’s why I think if I were Jacinda, I would be worried. I would be looking at what happened to Phil [Twyford] and going ‘now it is my turn’.”

        On the other hand since emmigrating about 24 years ago I have had 12 fucking years of Communist oppression, so thats the suffering sorted, just got to deal to the guilt….

    • Harvey – you miss the point, party vote ACT does two thing (at least), first more ACT MPs means in a National led Govt they may be the deciding votes so some of their ideas & policies will become legislation, second it will be a clear signal to National that their current policy settings are not shared by enough of their core support base to warrant two tick blue and some National list MP’s will become ex MP,s and be a warning to other list MP’s who support the past woke ineffective policies that caused the loss of their voter base and seat. Still up ticked you though.

      • Gee thanks FT – is that two ticks?
        Or did I just miss your point twice?

        Thing is that Labour and National are competing for the middle ground.
        If National lose the middle, Act is stuffed too.
        National/Act have to win 61 seats between them in order for either of the to have any influence.

  14. To have a long term legacy in New Zealand, is where the change has to be wrought,
    ACT has only been the one party in New Zealand that has tried to make this change.

    the union goes even farther than those requests, calling for “local support” in the form of defunded police departments and the shuttering of charter schools.
    https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/education/la-teachers-union-says-schools-cant-reopen-unless-charter-schools-get

    This was done in New Zealand by the current CoL government.
    There is a world wide global pressure to stop alternative freeing up of school students.
    Also to try & handicap “home schooling” if they can in many countries.

    Not only a better education, but also to have different views, thoughts, reasoning & experience, that will allow a chance for that to lead into the future.
    ACT has a proven policy for this and it is a long term policy for a generational change for the future.

  15. Hat tip & thanks to Rachel on KB.

    Beri Wiess just resigned from her roles of staff writer and editor for the Opinion section of The New York Times (which the NZ Herald considers a major source of truth and insight). here is her resignation letter:
    https://www.bariweiss.com/resignation-letter
    .
    some highlights
    .
    But the lessons that ought to have followed the election—lessons about the importance of understanding other Americans, the necessity of resisting tribalism, and the centrality of the free exchange of ideas to a democratic society—have not been learned.
    Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.
    .
    Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times.
    But Twitter has become its ultimate editor.
    As the ethics and mores of that platform have become those of the paper, the paper itself has increasingly become a kind of performance space.
    Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions.
    I was always taught that journalists were charged with writing the first rough draft of history.
    Now, history itself is one more ephemeral thing molded to fit the needs of a predetermined narrative.
    .
    My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views.
    They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m “writing about the Jews again.”
    Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers.
    My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in.
    There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name.
    Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.
    .
    There are terms for all of this: unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge. I’m no legal expert.
    But I know that this is wrong.
    ….
    Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.

    Op-eds that would have easily been published just two years ago would now get an editor or a writer in serious trouble, if not fired.
    If a piece is perceived as likely to inspire backlash internally or on social media, the editor or writer avoids pitching it.
    If she feels strongly enough to suggest it, she is quickly steered to safer ground.
    And if, every now and then, she succeeds in getting a piece published that does not explicitly promote progressive causes, it happens only after every line is carefully massaged, negotiated and caveated.
    .
    It took the paper two days and two jobs to say that the Tom Cotton op-ed “fell short of our standards.”
    We attached an editor’s note on a travel story about Jaffa shortly after it was published because it “failed to touch on important aspects of Jaffa’s makeup and its history.”
    But there is still none appended to Cheryl Strayed’s fawning interview with the writer Alice Walker, a proud anti-Semite who believes in lizard Illuminati.

    The paper of record is, more and more, the record of those living in a distant galaxy, one whose concerns are profoundly removed from the lives of most people.
    This is a galaxy in which, to choose just a few recent examples, the Soviet space program is lauded for its “diversity”; the doxxing of teenagers in the name of justice is condoned; and the worst caste systems in human history includes the United States alongside Nazi Germany. …
    .
    All this bodes ill, especially for independent-minded young writers and editors paying close attention to what they’ll have to do to advance in their careers.
    .
    Rule One: Speak your mind at your own peril.
    .
    Rule Two: Never risk commissioning a story that goes against the narrative.
    .
    Rule Three: Never believe an editor or publisher who urges you to go against the grain.
    .
    Eventually, the publisher will cave to the mob, the editor will get fired or reassigned, and you’ll be hung out to dry.

    And another reason why our education systems need a freeing up, charter schools as when ACT put in place.
    In the future we will then gain a better crop of journalists than the current mob.

      Phillips is interviewed by The Sun’s Steven Edginton for the weekly series of ‘Burning Questions’.
      Phillips describes her experiences as a British jew, dealing with antisemitism and where the problems of the left come from.

  17. Lunchtime soapbox:

    OK, lets see what happens with Collins.
    Collins is very like John Key.
    Talk and some charisma; good intellectual approach and able to think on their feet.
    They present as if they will ‘fight for right’ (i.e. correct, not right leaning)
    But little will happen.

    Collins was a massive do nothing and she even reversed good things that Simon Power did in 2008 to 2011 when she was Minister of Justice after 2011.
    But Notional wont reverse things Labour do.
    They will reverse their own party’s legislation. Huh!

    Her noise and smoke screen for 2 years over the Binnie report/compensation for Bain was woeful.
    Sure it was a tough call but in 2 years she never made one. Left it for Amy Adams.

    She was an adequate Minister of police and that is all.
    As Energy minister in 2014 to 2017 term she was low energy.
    Again lots of talk.

    It is Back to the Future.
    2008. Law and order, economy , and RMA prattle.
    Notional passed the RMA Act in 1991 and were proud of it.

    ..and it about fecking time Notional step up and kick racism to the kerb and show up Liebour for what they are- Chinese hating pricks that do nothing for Polynesians except warm sinecures for the chosen ones.

    Bill English was married to a woman who was half Italian, half Samoan. His kids were one quarter Samoan. he was made a (symbolic) Samoan chief . He never worked this and should have.
    Bridges was part Maori as was his deputy. They never worked it.
    Collins is married to a racially mixed Samoan/ Chinese and whatever else he is so has a son who is part Chinese and part Samoan.
    They need to corner Labour on racism in the next 50 days and show them up for the lazy buggers they are.

    Labour have faux constituencies:-
    -The working class- do nothing for them [replaced by the moaners and bludgers class, a growing constituency]
    -Polynesian – they chuck lots and lots of money but do nothing for structural change and improvement.

    Bill English did pursue structural reform in the right the direction.
    He never sold it as a benefit . Why?
    Will Notional ever wake up and sell this aspect? I doubt it.

    It will be RMA, Laura Norder, Economy.
    They did a good job with ‘Economy’ in 2008 to 2013 but it was based on immigration with little follow through like building dwellings or accompanying infrastructure.
    I am yet to see any good from this selection of Collins. It is a good tactical move but not strategic.
    I do have time for Gerry Brownlee.
    Lets see what happens in Back to the future, Part 2

        folks, you have to remember NZ and it’s politicians are owned and controlled by the UN and international corporations. What we have is an illusion of democracy. You do have a choice at the ballot box, but you are voting for more of the same. Just a different flavour and colour.

    Any more information on those coming into the country for the Tarrant court hearing? Peter Williams was concerned those arrivals are not expected to sit in quarantine for 14 days before the sentencing hearing. Is this why Cindy is warning of regional outbreaks?

  24. Gerry Brownlee backs Collins’ unapologetic diversity stance
    Deputy National leader Gerry Brownlee has doubled down on leader Judith Collins’ unapologetic stance on diversity, saying it can be hard to balance with competence.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/balancing-two-not-easy-national-deputy-gerry-brownlee-diversity-and-competence

    She said the party had “diversity of thought”, arguing it was more important to “be representative rather than look representative” and again repeated her question of whether there was something wrong with being white.

    Judith Collins calls question about Treaty ‘stupid’, says she’s ‘utterly sick of being demonised for my ethnicity’

    Her deputy Mr Brownlee – who was also deputy leader from 2003 to 2006 – this afternoon seemed to take a very similar stance.

    “I think it’s very interesting when people call out for diversity but at the same time demand competence, and sometimes balancing the two is not easy,” he told Midday Report.

    “I’m not suggesting that means anything particular for our caucus but you’ll find Judith will do a sensible job in putting forward great capability onto our front bench, and mindful that it has to be as reflective as it possibly can of New Zealand society.”

  28. Content supplied by Roy Morgan Research

    In June support for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s Labour Party was at 54.5% down 2% since May, but still more than double the support for National on 27%, up only 0.5%, two months before the election in mid-September.

    If an election were held today Labour could govern without the help of either New Zealand First or the Greens.

    The large decline in support for National since being level with Labour on 40% in January prompted the opposition to replace former leader Simon Bridges with Todd Muller in late May. The latest results for June show the change in leadership had a negligible impact on support for National and this week Muller resigned after less than two months in the job citing health reasons.

    This latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll on voting intention was conducted by telephone – both landline and mobile – with a NZ wide cross-section of 879 electors during June. Of all electors surveyed 6% (up 0.5%) didn’t name a party. Electors were asked: “If a New Zealand Election were held today which party would receive your party vote?”

    Support for the Labour/NZ First/Greens governing coalition held strong at 65% in June

    In June 65% of electors supported the Labour/NZ First/Greens governing coalition, down 1% since May. The governing coalition was well ahead of the Parliamentary opposition National/ Act NZ on only 32%, but up 2% since May.

    Support for Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peter’s NZ First was at only 1.5% in June, down 1% since May and down a significant 5.7% since their election result of 7.2% in 2017. NZ First dropped below the party vote threshold of 5% in June and may be ejected from Parliament altogether at this year’s NZ Election if the voting intention translates into less than 5% of the vote.
    Greens support was at 9%, up 2% since May and up 2.7% since their election result in 2017 and was comfortably above the 5% threshold.
    Support for Act NZ increased to 5% in June, up 1.5% since May and were this level of support repeated at the election it would be Act’s best election result since 2002.

    A small minority of 3% of electors support other minor parties outside Parliament.

    Of the parties outside Parliament The Opportunities Party (TOP) was up 0.5% to 1.5% in June and the Maori Party was at 1% (down 0.5%).

    New Zealand Government Confidence Rating at near record high of 153.5 in June

    Despite a small decline, the Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating was at a very high 153.5 in June, but down 5pts from 158 in May.

    The majority (72%) of New Zealand electors (down 4% since May) said New Zealand was ‘heading in the right direction’ compared to only 18.5% (up 1%) that said New Zealand was ‘heading in the wrong direction’.

    In contrast to decline in the latest Government Confidence Rating the monthly ANZ-Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence Rating increased by 7.2pts to 104.5 in June and was back above the neutral level of 100 for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

    Auckland CBD quarantine hotel evacuated

    Managed isolation facility Rydges Hotel was evacuated for one hour on Wednesday afternoon.

    Fire and Emergency were called to the Federal St hotel around 3:30pm on Wednesday.
    “It was a bit of a shit show [keeping everyone under control at the start]… social distancing went out the window.”

    She says the rain added to the chaos and it would’ve been easy to “do a runner” because there weren’t enough staff monitoring outside.

    Due to the hotel’s central location, she says some members of the public accidentally walked through the crowd until staff told them to stay away.

    ‘Complacent’ New Zealanders urged not to ‘dilly dally’ over use of Covid-19 app

    Health Minister Chris Hipkins has appealed to New Zealanders to use the contact tracer app, saying he believes there is a degree of complacency in this country, even as the risk grows every day.

    And Judith responds to the COL’s call to sign up to the Covid app:

    New National leader Judith Collins says there’s “probably” something wrong with the Government’s NZ COVID Tracer app if Kiwis’ uptake of it is low.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/probably-something-wrong-covid-19-tracing-app-if-uptake-low-judith-collins?auto=6171718560001

    She said despite being “generally on to apps”, she had trouble getting the NZ COVID Tracer to work on her phone. Ms Collins said the last time she tried to use it was two weeks ago.

    “It just comes back with something like ‘it’s not available’ or whatever,” she said.

    “If I’m having trouble with it, probably quite a few people are.”

    Ms Collins said there were “probably [issues] if people don’t want to use it [the app].”

    “People are now not using it so much because, after all, we’re not in lockdown … I thought the borders were secure, aren’t they?”

  31. This is probably the most important Executive Order from President Trump so far.

    Pelosi is ranting, Hong Kongers are elated and the CCP is absolutely pissed.

    The President’s Executive Order on Hong Kong Normalization

    I therefore determine that the situation with respect to Hong Kong, including recent actions taken by the PRC to fundamentally undermine Hong Kong’s autonomy, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat, which has its source in substantial part outside the United States, to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. I hereby declare a national emergency with respect to that threat.

    • I want a zombie Nazi Hitler to rise from the grave and save us. Minus the vegetarianism, sensitive lefty artist stuff.

      Hitler was a decent socialist who respected cultural differences as a core value. Including the indigenous ethnic tangata whenua of Germany.

      He was also a zionist but struggled to find a place for the displaced Jews. His Zionism was a logical extension of his approach to culture and race.

      All supporters of Zionism are Nazi but without the good bits.

    • Cindy’s trying to ignore Judith. 😏

      Judith on the other hand has already challenged Cindy to debate her on the Ryan Bridges ‘Drive Show’ on Magic Radio. Ryan is using the challenge as an ad for the show. Will Cindy take up the challenge??? 😉

  32. Update for Alert Level 1

    Today we announced the “Stamp it Out” plan for responding to new cases of COVID-19 in the community. Ongoing elimination continues to be our strategy for dealing with COVID-19 to keep New Zealanders safe. There is no evidence of community transmission to date and we want to keep it that way.

    The ‘Stamp it out’ plan for responding to new cases includes several scenarios and their impacts on individuals, businesses, and other organisations such as schools.

    Scenario 1⃣
    Contained cluster within a community – such as small number of cases at an aged residential care facility. In this scenario, the response would likely be delivered primarily by the local Public Health Unit and District Health Board (supported by the Ministry of Health), and focused on rapid contact tracing and isolation, and scaled up and targeted testing. Very targeted measures such as shutting down, or restricting access to specific premises, would likely be applied. Local controls such as physical distancing or limits on gatherings in the area could also be part of the response if testing results indicate a need to take extra steps. We would likely remain at Alert Level 1 nationally.

    Scenario 2⃣
    A large cluster within a region – such as a case infecting several individuals at a social event at a café, spreading throughout a region. A significant increase in testing would be the priority. In addition, a regional Alert Level of 2 or 3 is likely to be required. We may remain at Alert Level 1 nationally, depending on the evidence of risk of spread outside the region. The All of Government Response Group would begin steps to scale to a national level response if required.

    Scenario 3⃣
    Multiple clusters, spread nationally – such as two cases emerging at a similar time, with both attending large events with visitors from across the country (such as a sporting event and a concert), and multiple new clusters emerging in different parts of the country as a result.

    Under this scenario, we anticipate a national increase in Alert Level. We would scale logistical and planning support for national, regional and local operations and delivery.

    We want to be ready for any scenario. You can help by continuing to contact trace, wash your hands, cough or sneeze into your elbow and stay home if you’re sick.

    • They are expecting a big break-out when folks fly in for Brenton Tarrant’s hearing.

      They’ll bugger-up all the Covid-19 testing ,so that it will be difficult to trace the virus back to its source.

    • Fuck the media are as pathetic as they are predictable.

      Of course Crusher is a normal sensitive loyal person. We can see that. But they portray the cold psychopath Ardern the same way, even knowing the aloof contempt with which she treats her own spoor.

      It’s all fake.

    Florida Labs Acknowledge “Major Errors” After Reporting Positivity Rates Of 100%

    Coronavirus Cases Up The report showed that Orlando Health had a 98 percent positivity rate. However, when FOX 35 News contacted the hospital, they confirmed errors in the report. Orlando Health’s positivity rate is only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as in the report.

  35. Ardern represents the privileged arrogance of white middle classes. She opposed our first Maori National leader and first Maori female deputy.

    Fight Ardern’s hate. Vote ACT

    • Wrong. Ardern is a communist through and through. She hates the middle class.
      What she craves is a complete dictatorship where she is the supreme
      leader. She opposes anyone who will get in the way of that.
      A rabid and fanatical sociopath.

    New political poll skyrockets Judith Collins’ favourability for Prime Minister
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/new-political-poll-skyrockets-judith-collins-favourability-for-prime-minister.html
    A new poll has placed National leader Judith Collins’ favourability for Prime Minister at 22.6 percent.

    The poll was commissioned by The Project with Yabble, and the 500 respondents were asked: Thinking about all current MPs of any party, which one would you personally prefer to be Prime Minister?

    The poll’s results were revealed on Wednesday and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern came out on top, with 60.8 percent of people preferring she lead the country. ACT leader David Seymour received 3.2 percent of the vote, Green Party MP Chlöe Swarbrick got 1.4 percent and New Zealand First leader Winston Peters garnered 1.2 percent.
