  1. If the latest poll is correct, and I doubt that it is, the 61% who have a hard on for Ardern deserve everything that is coming. Fools.

    • If this comes to pass, and it’s no longer worth the effort, I’m going to lower my expectations for my later years, be thankful for what I’ve achieved to date, and retire 10 years early. I’m not busting my gut for every no-hoper out there.

      • We will see large swathes of people looking at moving capital offshore. Can’t say blame them as I’d rather pay much lower rates of tax in other jurisdictions than get absolutely fleeced by our Socialist Junta. What’s the bet that within a year all the Chardonnay swillers from Grey Lynn, Karori and Merivale all start whining when they are forced to hand over big chunks of their income/asset values.

    • Don’t worry, It’s what they call a rogue poll. Nationals internal polling shows nothing like a 36% swing.
      Colmar Brunton are polling this week and results are revealed on Sunday. I bet the gap will have closed to less that 8%
      What will not change is the support for ACT and the demise of Winston First, and the Greens.

      • Also you have to read the fine print

        “The latest Newshub-Reid Research Poll was conducted between 16-24 July 2020. One thousand people were surveyed, 700 by telephone including both landlines and mobiles and 300 by internet panel. It has a margin of error of 3.1 percent.”

        So Reid use this panel help cut costs. You can guarantee the panel is not representative of the NZ voter population.

        • Good info Ross but you made an error on the margin of error there is no full stop between 3 & 1! But hey socialists rejoice Cindy is well on the way to follow Kim and Stalin with almost 100% of the vote unless she has a Corbin moment on 20/9/2020.!

        • Some segments of the population are very difficult to reach by phone. Busy people won’t respond. The ones you tend to get are the lonely and the loopy, typically Greens or Labour supporters who have the time to chat. Sure, you can have quotas to help try and get enough males or people aged under 30, but in the end, the ones from these hard-to-reach groups that will talk to you tend not to be busy, working people.

    • Don’t know of any socialist countries apart from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland which are also democracies. Can’t have one without the other.
      USSR was not commie/socialist, but was a fascist dictatorship, which Russia still is. China is definitely not commie/socialist. Its a bigtime capitalist state.
      Cuba? Hmm. Maybe.

        • I agree Rachael, this is possibly the result of a clever “push poll”. Unless I have got to a point in my life where I cannot sense the mood of the people, there has been a significant swing back to National when Judith took over. I have even talked to previous ACT voters who are now leaning National. In my world this poll is so wrong it is laughable.

        • Wonder what the preamble was to the question, though this is a voluntary poll.

          Likewise, when people were asked about which leader they felt closest to, only 10 per cent named former leader Todd Muller, while 52 per cent named Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
          But those numbers changed markedly after the leadership change, with 31.7 naming Collins, while Ardern dropped to 47.2 per cent.

              • The easiest way to skew the poll results in favour of Labour & Hugzilla would be to direct the questions to the right gender/age group.

                If you polled exclusively 18YO to menopausal females it would be theoretically possible to get Cindy to a 100% approval rate as the respondents emote with their ovaries instead of weighing up facts with their brains.

                As always the devil’s in the detail & no one with even a room temperature IQ trusts Labour to do anything honestly & openly.

  2. Those were the days, a sad good bye from Australian cartoonist, Paul Zanetti and noting the changes forcing him to windup now.

    ….. The ’60s, ’70 and ’80s were the heyday of Australians taking the piss out of each other and ourselves.
    I was a wog, you were a skip.
    We knew how to laugh at each other, laugh together, how to get along, to play footy, cricket and wogball, and to belt each other in lunchtime brawls – then get up the next day to do it all over again. ……

    …… And so it is, in this ‘new normal’ world of Covid-19 and evaporating ad dollars, that over 100 newsprint publications have been forced to close down in the past few weeks.
    Most of my paying newspaper customers no longer exist. Hundreds of journalists, managers, printers and photographers are also out of work.
    Time for me to get a real job. My late dad would be pleased.
    I can’t believe I got away with it so long.
    Thanks for the ride.

    • While I appreciate the theme here that humour has changed- some might say ‘gone on life support’
      I have no problem with :-
      “Hundreds of journalists, managers, printers and photographers are also out of work. Hundreds of journalists, managers, printers and photographers are also out of work.”

      There are a number of factors.
      First there was newsprint. A physical leaf of papers that brought news to you from around the world by Telex or earlier, by letter writing, and locally by journals meeting people and getting out and about.
      Then In the 1930s Radio entered the homes. This was revolutionary and made the world smaller.
      Newspapers were still strong.
      Then came television. This was more revolutionary and one could see footage of the Vietnam war on the 6pm news. The last time I ever bothered with it.
      The change was fast.
      In the 1970 All Blacks tour of Britain the game tapes had to be flown to NZ then played on a Sunday afternoon.
      By the 1972 /73 tour of Britain and Ireland the major games were live.

      There were three media in play (papers, radio, TV) from only one 60 years before with the same consumption market.
      Afternoon papers dropped away first as the 6pm gnews became the norm.
      They were doing well to all keep going in the 1980s and 1990s.
      Then came the internet thing. It was a big change.
      Then on the internet came Google and they are an advertising company. The biggest. Multinational.
      By the early 2000’s advertising revenue for newspapers esp classified (Cars, houses, jobs ) were disappearing into specialist websites.
      Radio went from about 4 stations in Akl in 1970 to over 30 by 2000. This split the advertising dollar further.

      It is 2020.
      There is evolution. Some species disappear and new ones appear.
      Watch the Danny De Vito 1991 movie ‘Other Peoples Money’ for an education.
      C’est la vie.

      In among all this access to world wide information by the deplorables, the old guard who had previously held the knowledge and the telexes and Reuters decided to start telling lies.
      Whoppers Huuuuge lies. Truth a was a precious commodity in the last 10 years

      That they are dying is a good thing.
      Who needs more liars? We have all we want and more with the PT PM.

      No sympathy for the devil – media filth

  3. University of Canterbury collaborating with Institute linked to Chinese military
    Martin Van Beynen05:00, Jul 27 2020

    The University of Canterbury (UC) decided to collaborate with a top Chinese university that has strong links with the Chinese military without asking about the organisation’s defence connections.

    In April 2018, UC signed an agreement with Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), based in Harbin, Weihai and Shenzhen, to collaborate on teaching and research.

    According to work done by The Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), a Canberra-based think tank partially funded by the Australian Government, the Harbin Institute is one of the main Chinese universities doing research in “sensitive civil-military technologies”.

    As one of ‘Seven Sons of National Defence’ the university is prominent in research on ballistic missiles, information and cyber warfare and nuclear engineering, ASPI says.

    • The camel first got its nose in the tent in Christchurch university over a decade ago to do the “soft sell”.

      officially launched by the Chinese Vice-Premier, Li Keqiang, on 1 November 2009, the second Confucius Institute to be established in New Zealand and the first in the South Island.
      https://www.canterbury.ac.nz/arts/research/ci/

      The beginnings of giving away and subverting one’s principles,
      What principles? follow the money$

      ….. The Confucius Institute is operated by a branch of China’s Ministry of Education called Hanban, which is responsible for providing worldwide Chinese language and culture teaching resources.

      Hanban’s governing council is led by Liu Yandong, the former head of the United Front Work Department, a secretive government body that performs multiple functions, including shaping the Communist Party’s image and influence outside of China. …..
      ….. “China’s soft power strategy is ‘top down,’ designed, financed, and implemented by the Communist Party, ” said Glaser. “It is very unlike Western countries — whose soft power comes primarily from the natural attraction of their culture and open political systems.”……
      …… estimating that China spends $10 billion (€8 billion) annually on its global soft power campaign. ……

    • I agree about Rod Carr.
      He did not do a good job at Jade Software either.
      He left as Vice Chancellor of UC at the beginning of 2019. 18 months ago.
      He is chair of RBNZ.

      The new Vice chancellor is:-
      (Top administrator, Chancellor is more figurehead like Spud Bolger was at Waikato)

      ‘Professor Cheryl Merle de la Rey is the current Vice-Chancellor | Tumu Whakarae of the University of Canterbury in Aotearoa New Zealand. She was formerly the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Pretoria in South Africa and had a distinguished career as a South African academic and leader in South African higher education.
      Since 2019, she has been the vice-chancellor of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand’

      She is a coloured South African woman
      ‘She was installed as vice-chancellor in November 2009, replacing Calie Pistorius.[6] She is a qualified psychologist and was previously deputy vice-chancellor of the University of Cape Town, as well as Chief Executive Officer of the Council on Higher Education (CHE)’

      This is politically correct.
      Please do not wrong think
      The repercussions are high and because the cops ignore crime in NZ they could have 15 armed officers at your door in 15 minutes.
      The door will not last long, by the way!!

    FFS the livestock in our country shit and piss between 70 thousand and 100 thousand tonnes of sewerage every day onto our 100% clean green pastures and Greenpeace want to ban a few truck and trailers worth of plastic bottles .
    This is what our place has become with three years of Ardern mania , its the absolute virtue signalling capital of the entire planet, meanwhile back here in Aotearoa we still have no plan to rescue us from the worst economic crisis EVER to face us…

    • We’re putting a lot into landfill at the moment. The Greens are advocating an additional charge for it. While it is only something like $62 per family per year, it’s still more cost on the poor taxpayer. Meanwhile, the RMA prevents us from taking a smart approach like this.

      There’s a much easier solution – get a modern, waste to energy incinerator. It can be integrated into the cityscape if need be.

        NZ would be punching above its weight,

        This was all stopped in NZ 20 years ago. 🙁

        ….. $223 million scheme to re-fire the Meremere station to burn rubbish and generate electricity.
        It had also shelved plans for a similar but smaller plant in Gisborne. …..
        …… feared the plant would pump toxins and greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.
        However, Olivine claimed its plan was safe and would give much-needed jobs to the area. …..

        https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=15021

        I would think it may not have been exactly perfect, but much of that technology was there and no toxins would have been released and testing, monitoring would have been full on.
        Once operational, there would also have been upgrading, putting in place even better technology.

        So the once in a life time opportunity was stopped.

    • I haven’t read the shub but pretty simple really.

      People see high unemployment on the horizon and this is a way of getting accommodation, clothes, salary, training etc and little likelihood of actual engagement.
      For gym junkies it is ideal.
      What is not to like.

      Plus people have witnessed that while unemployment has climbed and will get worse the public servants are still on 100% pay with full job security.
      Not so the private sector.
      Choosing the army means getting a Govt job without having to go to an office and putting up with the political correctness, back stabbing, and rivers of soy milk.
      The only real enemy is Nikki Hagar

      There is a huge crack in the employment universe between public sector and private,

  9. Once Winston Churchill learned of another author in the USA of the same name. He wrote to the gentleman proposing a solution. It makes me smile to read.
    Mr. Winston Churchill presents his compliments to Mr. Winston Churchill, and begs to draw his attention to a matter which concerns them both. He has learnt from the Press notices that Mr. Winston Churchill proposes to bring out another novel, entitled Richard Carvel, which is certain to have a considerable sale both in England and America. Mr. Winston Churchill is also the author of a novel now being published in serial form in Macmillan’s Magazine, and for which he anticipates some sale both in England and America. He also proposes to publish on the 1st of October another military chronicle on the Soudan War. He has no doubt that Mr. Winston Churchill will recognise from this letter — if indeed by no other means — that there is grave danger of his works being mistaken for those of Mr. Winston Churchill. He feels sure that Mr. Winston Churchill desires this as little as he does himself. In future to avoid mistakes as far as possible, Mr. Winston Churchill has decided to sign all published articles, stories, or other works, ‘Winston Spencer Churchill,’ and not ‘Winston Churchill’ as formerly. He trusts that this arrangement will commend itself to Mr. Winston Churchill, and he ventures to suggest, with a view to preventing further confusion which may arise out of this extraordinary coincidence, that both Mr. Winston Churchill and Mr. Winston Churchill should insert a short note in their respective publications explaining to the public which are the works of Mr. Winston Churchill and which those of Mr. Winston Churchill. The text of this note might form a subject for future discussion if Mr. Winston Churchill agrees with Mr. Winston Churchill’s proposition. He takes this occasion of complimenting Mr. Winston Churchill upon the style and success of his works, which are always brought to his notice whether in magazine or book form, and he trusts that Mr. Winston Churchill has derived equal pleasure from any work of his that may have attracted his attention.
    Mr Churchill replied as follows.
    Mr. Winston Churchill is extremely grateful to Mr. Winston Churchill for bringing forward a subject which has given Mr. Winston Churchill much anxiety.
    “Mr. Winston Churchill appreciates the courtesy of Mr. Winston Churchill in adopting the name of ‘Winston Spencer Churchill’ in his books, articles, etc.
    “Mr. Winston Churchill makes haste to add that, had he possessed any other names, he would certainly have adopted one of them.
    Both letters show a humour and wit that is rarely found today.

    Refugee journalist Behrouz Boochani decries ‘queue-jumper’ criticisms from National

    Behrouz Boochani says criticisms accusing him of being a “queue jumper” after he was granted asylum in New Zealand are unfair.

    National’s immigration spokesperson, Stuart Smith, has criticised him as jumping the queue for entry to New Zealand and suggested he “played the immigration system like a violin”.

    But those criticisms are frustrating to Mr Boochani, who says it reduces the Manus Island refugees’ plight to a personal story rather than a wider issue.

  13. Although this is Canadian how much has this crept deeply into New Zealand.

    …. Much of Antifa’s contemporary sloganeering and messaging is directed at capitalism and the structure of contemporary Canadian society itself.

    As a decentralized movement, Canada’s Antifa is composed of an assortment of radical ideologues on the left of the political spectrum, including but not limited to anarchists, Marxists, Maoists and others. The movement has even found sympathizers among Liberals, democratic socialists and members of the mainstream discourse. ….

    … “only ones who should oppose Antifa are fascists.” …..
    While there is likely a variety of doctrinal differences among individual members and different cells, they are bound together by opposition to perceived institutional racism, patriarchy, colonialism, exploitation and other issues alleged to plague the nation. …..

    The anarchist collective, ………. perpetrated several guerilla-style attacks on BC infrastructure amounting in millions of dollars worth of property damage.

    After bombing a BC Hydro substation on May 31, 1982, the group went onto perpetrate another bombing attack at a Litton Systems plant in Toronto which resulted in ten employee injuries.

    Beyond bringing the violent tendencies of anarchism to the public’s attention, numerous other anti-establishment groups followed Direct Action’s cue.
    For example, in 1995 the green-anarchist group called the Earth Liberation Army burned down a wildlife museum in British Columbia.

    Today, the term “direct action,” beyond referencing the 1980s extremist cells, has popularly come to denote among the Antifa crowd, violent and subversive activities meant to advance the movement’s principal goals.

    The tactics of sabotage and physical confrontation have today become a core principle for the movement’s Modus Operandi.. ….

    Noting the wish to “and the structure of contemporary Canadian society itself”.
    Hidden & supported by “sympathizers among Liberals, democratic socialists and members of the mainstream discourse”.
    Further many of those would be in public service, bureaucracy, using their powers, in Commissions, Conciliators, etc. hiding, white & green washing, masking events to keep progressing onwards.

    A couple of recent events in NZ have shown them to be in direct action, that shows they have a lot of power to control the narrative, despite people being killed, and still control the general public’s information over this.

  15. It seems a number of the greenists have worked out, that the UN or such globalists, have been using many forms of the “useful idiots”.

    Moore makes a number of strong arguments that debunk the IPCC’s increasingly problematic pseudo-scientific and anti-human narrative which is being parroted by climate change activists and the likes of Greta Thunberg.

    He explains:-
    ~ Why Moore left Greenpeace.
    ~ The beginnings of the climate catastrophe movement.
    ~ Why Moore believes human beings would not only survive but survive better at far higher average temperatures (which would be concentrated toward the poles).
    ~ Why Moore believes that contrary to being in a Sixth Extinction, we are actually at an unprecedented time of biodiversity with no end in sight.
    ~ Why Moore believes “ocean acidification” claims are totally meritless.
    ~ The commonality among the opposition to plastics, GMOs, nuclear energy, and fossil fuels.
    ~ Moore’s unrefuted theory that human beings actually saved life on Earth from a terminal decline in CO2 levels.
    ~ Why Moore believes that contrary to being in a Sixth Extinction, we are actually at an unprecedented time of biodiversity with no end in sight.

    • Seattle council have basically disarmed their police. as the Chief of Police explains.

      As you may have seen, yesterday the federal court chose to not intercede, at this time, in the Council’s ordinance banning the possession or use of less-lethal tools typically used in crowd control situations – including the 40mm “blue nose” and any chemical irritant.

      This does include OC (“pepper spray”), if it is used at a demonstration, rally, or in any way that it would affect someone other than the intended individual.
      Since it would nearly impossible to keep OC spray from affecting anyone nearby, the ordinance effectively bans the use of OC as well.

      https://mynorthwest.com/2042993/seattle-police-chief-warns-council-crowd-control-ban/

      The police will only be allowed riot shields and riot battens so their deployment possibilities are greatly limited.

      P.S Just heard on the radio news, police in Seattle arrest 45, and tear gas was used.
      But who was firing the tear gas? The city police (ordered not to)? state police? or the Feds?
      Who were doing the arrests., and will it now be all federal charges, and federal jails. 🙂

  19. David Seymour asks questions but he gets sidelined by the duck. Can we have answers to Judith’s questions NZ’ers want answered?

    Judith Collins plans to grill Jacinda Ardern on Behrouz Boochani’s refugee status
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/judith-collins-plans-to-grill-jacinda-ardern-on-behrouz-boochani-s-refugee-status.html

    But Collins is sceptical about the process around Boochani’s acceptance as a refugee, telling Magic Talk on Monday she plans to raise it when she goes up against the Prime Minister in Parliament.

    “Yes, absolutely,” Collins said. “I’m sick to death of this stuff. It looks like to all of us a very, very interesting situation that needs a bit more blowtorch on it.”

    Smith, MP for Kaikōura, questioned whether Boochani truly intended to leave New Zealand after a month because he told the ABC he had no intention of returning to Papua New Guinea.

    Boochani told the ABC he may apply for asylum in New Zealand.

    Australian Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said Boochani was not welcome there, telling Sky News Australia: “He wouldn’t be permitted to come to Australia – we’ve been very clear about that.”

Surely with two Aussie PMs making their views more than clear with the new NZ PM the decision for Boochani to stay would have to be made at the highest levels of the COL.

  24. “Newshub can reveal that voters do not trust Collins”. Just like Ed’s HYSP poll that has been skewed by Labour troll farm votes? They overcooked the numbers making it obvious it was a political hit. 😲 😈

    Newshub-Reid Research Poll: Voters trust Jacinda Ardern far more than Judith Collins
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/newshub-reid-research-poll-voters-trust-jacinda-ardern-far-more-than-judith-collins.html

    Judith Collins has accused the Prime Minister of knowing about Iain Lees-Galloway’s affair with a former staffer despite Jacinda Ardern clearly saying she did not – but Collins may have trouble convincing the public.

    Newshub can reveal that voters do not trust Collins, and our latest Newshub-Reid Research Poll shows she’s also on the wrong side of public opinion when it comes to whether or not politicians should ever lie.

    Voters were asked if they trust Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and an overwhelming 79.4 percent said “yes” while just 17 percent said “no”, and few didn’t know.

  25. “It is still the Government’s intention to see the RTA reforms passed in the term of this Parliament,” said a Faafoi spokesman when asked if the overhaul would be passed in this Parliamentary term before the September 19 election.

    The law will swing firmly into the tenants’ favour, ending no-cause evictions, meaning landlords’ reasons for getting rid of tenants must be far more robust than now.

    The Government wants to remove the right of landlords to end a tenancy for no cause and to increase notice periods for some specified reasons.

    Faafoi announced the biggest changes to the Residential Tenancies Act since it was passed in 1986.

    Police told media two weeks ago that an unnamed research company they work with had suffered a potential data breach.

    The company is Gravitas, a Government-approved business, that is used for research purposes.

    A spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice says it’s been alerted to the potential data and system breach by Gravitas.

    “We are working with them to identify what, if any, implications there are in relation to research and evaluation work Gravitas has undertaken on behalf of the Ministry in the past”.

    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/election-2020-voting-look-different-electoral-commission-prepares-all-covid-19-scenarios

    Larger venues like halls, schools and marae will be used – and for the first time, a mosque, in Wellington – so physical distancing can be introduced if necessary. In another first, there will be a booth in a marae in Huntley where te reo Māori is the primary language. In the last election, people could vote at some supermarkets but that will not happen this time because they are not seen as a suitable place if voting has to be done under lockdown conditions.

    Until Parliament dissolves on 12 August, the prime minister can change the election date, after that the Electoral Commission has those powers under the Electoral Act.

    For the first time people will be able to enrol and vote on election day. About 19,000 people didn’t have their votes counted in the 2017 election because they had not enrolled by the deadline of midnight before election day.

    While visiting Palmerston North on Monday, Collins had a go at New Zealand First MP Shane Jones, saying he’s a “very naughty little boy”. She also targeted the Greens, who have previously said “tax is love”.

    “I don’t know about you, but if tax is love then I’ve had too much love,” Collins said.

    She also slammed the Government’s COVID-19 response and the number of people who have escaped managed isolation.

    “When I was Minister of Corrections, nobody escaped.”
