Where is Maggy when you need her?

69 COMMENTS

  1. Finally, she is sad that “no-one cared about this stuff when I was there,” and said none of her colleagues, Trevor Mallard included, appeared to wonder what had happened to derail her career. Never wondered, “hang on a minute, she was really bright and she was brilliant at her job, maybe she’s not a nut job and what she said is true; I might go and find her and ask her and see if she’s ok.”

    Have we turned a corner? I really hope so, but it will take a lot more than dealing with one shadowy ‘rapist.’ It’s in the Speaker’s hands and he’s promised to act fast. Let’s see if Trevor Mallard is as woke as he appeared to be this week.

    Not that often I agree with Alison Mau but in this case I do.

    • I think I understand now why the career of A Mau as a journalist failed. She can’t write.

      That was a rambling load of nonsense, other than a general sense that men are to blame for something – I couldn’t work out what she was getting at. To be honest, it was so poorly written that I couldn’t be bothered trying decipher what she was getting at – so she may indeed have been attempting to make a good point – hard to know what it was though.

      However, I’m sure her adult literacy problems are somehow my fault and the fault of the male patriarchy at wide – so no point making a fuss out of it eh?

      • TL;DR
        Even three words from the Aussie import are TL;DR.

        Mau is stuck on ‘I hate men’; I hate men; rinse and repeat.
        I wont read her crap. She finds male rape in a man looking across the street at a woman.
        But on the high rate of violence in lesbian relationships all we hear are Kookaburras

        Your attack on DP calling ‘lack of comprehension’is the sort of attack Mau, Golly and Marvellous Lizzy would use.
        You attack the person for expressing their view (free speech) rather than suggesting why the statement is incorrect. This does not win arguments but is a standard shouty lefty tactic.
        To be fair, even without reading Mau’s (no doubt) vitriol, it will be long and rambling which is what Stuff has gone for since the other mob put up a paywall.

          Nothing like bias and unintelligent comment.
          People are not wrong every time. Sometimes they can be correct as in this case. Trev has a reputation that goes before him. That’s why I said poacher turned gamekeeper. But perhaps you didn’t even read that.

          • Trev is not gamekeeper, he is Cindys protector. Without him she would not be considering the UN! If Helen came home crying, how on earth is Cindy going to handle that snake pit! Who’s going to look after her? She will not have our pram pushing media, the duck or even all the sycophants in her office. How is Helen going to help, she run away, it all got to much for her! After all our presiouse little Cindy is a little delicate, shell we say! So I say again, she ain’t going to the UN!

          Or, parliament is a safe place to work because Mau says it isn’t?
          Rambling nonsense seems to be the order of the day.

  2. Watch as the UK tories emulate National’s example and install a dick as leader

    Social media is full of presumption about Boris being the next PM. However, we in NZ have seen this pantomime before haven’t we.

    Two time loser Bill English steps down as leader of National, the sane centre-righties in the electorate were hankering for a stronger leader to take the helm (see this straw poll of mine on Kiwiblog but the “Party” thought JC was “too divisive” or “too polarising” or some other such nonsense that translated into “won’t take any nonsense and will kick me in the teeth”. And voila we got the worst (and that’s saying something indeed) leader of the National party in generations, their very own “Cunliffe candidate”.

    You can see exactly the same thing happening in the UK. It’s clear the people want Boris.

    But the party doesn’t …. oh no …. the Remoaner (bought and paid for) tory caucus doesn’t want a Brexiteer. They don’t want a clumsy patriot, saying “no” and putting up two fingers to Juncker. The party of Churchill doesn’t want another fat, bulldog who takes no nonsense from European nazis – it worked out awfully for them the last time they followed an upper class twit who loved the UK and put the national interest ahead of anything else – oh wait no it didn’t.

    I predict that at the very least there will be severe head winds for Boris’s campaign. A Remoaner candidate of even greater mediocrity than May will at least push Boris a very close second. And in all likelihood there is every chance that another “Et tu Brute” moment will be engineered to derail Boris and the tory caucus will be led by May2 at the end of the campaign.

    All of which would deepen the distrust in the party of Margaret Thatcher and potentially the tories could do what Labour haven’t been able to do since their inception – they may destroy the movement forever. Which may sound great to Corbynites – but it will unleash the apocolyptic nightmare of Farage on the swamp of Westminster.

    It’s going to be a beautiful war!

  3. This is my post on KB this morning. I wonder if it will get rejected for the “Golly G”

    “Alfred Ngaro was humble enough to admit some of his recent comments on abortion were inappropriate. I am hopeful National will do the same in regards there insisting on the democratic process when it came to the knee-jerk firearm legislation. They got it wrong. Judith Collins is wrong in siding with Golly G instead of Seymour. “

    • Chuck, I heard your explanation to Shaun Plunkett on why you believe Golly G does not deserve your respect. He appeared to agree with your correct assessment that while she is an MP she has lost any respect that office holds.

      0

      0

    • Judith didn’t need to side with anybody, nobody else from National seemed to feel the need to comment. Could you imagine the sentiment ever being reciprocated?

      I am all for ‘being the better man’ and all of that, it doesn’t matter a jot, if you do not win. It should not be an either or.

      Thanks Golriz for giving David Seymour a platform and legitimate gripe. Golriz was milking it for all she was worth, but she thought that she was going to get away with it and if it wasn’t for David she would have.

      More not less of this calling into account of all parties of the COL. Gloves off, no point holding your fire until the election, there need to be spats that the media can not ignore and not deign to print.

      Make a fuss, throw a tanty, I don’t care. You are not going to get it right according to the media anyway, so go large.

      Perfect. The Empire needs to strike back. God forbid that the right should be viewed as soft cocks, when I am on the right.

      It makes me feel all protective over my religion and my culture. It is a neglected thing, having just done a family tree, I know my whakapapa. Perhaps European culture needs to get in touch with their culture, so they know who they are. We already have the language.

      History is so important, I took history at school, but I learned about the enlightenment when I was at university, in relative terms quite late in my life. Without it wouldn’t we all still be savages?

    • So why even both to post in that massively censored dhimmi world that seems to encourage nutters and disruptions like stiffibot and mikenmild.
      Farrar is too weak to clean out his blog properly and get rid of vindictive trolls but has massive censoring in place even when fair comments are made.
      Posts get held up for hours so there is no interaction any more so discussions stumble and fall.
      Very reflective of your (currently) beloved Nats.

      We have a far better class of troll here with dusty Fairy. Very polite too.

      The KB place is completely cucked out as it is a reflection of the National Party 2019.
      National is the place of people like Collins who protect free speech opponents and criticise champions of free speech like Seymour.
      Bridges just pants around after Jacinduh like a lapdog with a speech impediment.
      National 2019 very much reflects the UK Conservative party 2019.
      Out of alignment with their traditional constituency and the immediate/medium future looks not at all bright.
      You need to pick better friends Chuck.
      After all Winston let you down badly.

      Remember Gilbert Myles. He was National Party in 1990, then split from the party in 1991 and sat as an independent, before representing the Liberal Party, the Alliance and the New Zealand First party.

      • Chuck didn’t do it on his own. Winston had Don Brash and Whaleoil etc all singing his praises and they are all politically aware individuals. Winston is just a very good snakeoil salesman. What is even better in his case is he isn’t even secretive about it. So no surprise.

        Has anyone ever researched in order, a list of the relative hierarchies tribally, of our Maori MP’s? Do some tribes command more respect than others? Is Winston’s tribe important historically? Are treaty signatories wanting to be in governance?

        Should tribes that didn’t sign get compensation, as they weren’t party to the contract?

  5. oday, the far-Left is betraying real progressive politics by coercing its base to ‘self-identify’ with phantoms that never really existed before. Then, while these hapless ‘victims’ are busy chasing purple unicorns across a psychedelic landscape the issues that once mattered the most to the middle class are forgotten.

  6. My youngest son is currently working his way through Level 1 NCEA. His history class was given a printed copy of this on Friday and told to read it and discuss:

    https://thedailyblog.co.nz/2017/02/20/guest-blog-tina-ngata-a-crook-by-any-other-name-celebrating-cook/

    Frankly, I’m fucking appalled. I almost choked when he showed me just now.

    I want to complain to the school, but I’m not sure how to approach the matter, and would appreciate everybody’s thoughts.

    • Have a good discussion about it counterpointing, great opportunity, and if he gets to talk in class then he can really show that he learned about the topic. Who marks it, the teacher? He will no doubt have to write the correct narrative or fail?

    • Wow! I’m quite shocked by that article. It was what it was back at that time. Cook is part of NZ’s history, period. Get the f*ck over it 200 years later FFS! I would definitely be complaining John Warren.

    • Absolutely appalling is right. That woman’s opinion is so screwy I don’t know where you can start. I mean what the hell sort of shit claptrap is the following:

      “Of course within the Pacific we have very immediate reasons for celebrating an indigenous victory over imperialism, but even further afield, indigenous peoples living under colonial rule understand what it is to have an invader be hailed as a hero. In general, we understand how it hurts to remain, under an imposed system that places their reality at the centre and ours at the fringe – determining the flow of privilege. Many of us know how it feels to work overtime, on top of our jobs, to heal ourselves and our families and communities from the impacts of that system – striving for opportunities to hold on to who we are and celebrate it – while our colonial counterparts are generously funded to celebrate who they are. “

      • Talk to the school then tell your son to write his essay. If he fails the paper for telling the truth then that is a better lesson to have learnt than falling in with the crowd because it suits you. At least your son will be able to look himself in the eye, and know that lefties are full of it.

    • Rachael, a reasonable discussion on Cook’s objectives, methods and legacy is one thing, but to hand kids of that age a bitter polemic full of hatred, unsupported assertions, references to paedophilia and general racist bile, printed directly off a controversial left-wing blog site? Teacher (a young liberal woman) needs her fucking head read.

      For his age, my son is very well read in history, among other subjects (I continuously encourage my children to read a great deal) and I am thankful that he was alert enough to realise the material was inappropriate and bring it to my attention.

      • John, see how much truth this woman is prepared to engage with.
        If they want to study or ‘teach’ history- compare and contrast.

        A woman’s life in 1900 vs 2000.
        1900. Most countries – no vote for woman.
        Often had to leave employment when they got married.
        Many countries women could not own property or even get a mortgage without a male co-signer.
        In marriage; no reliable contraception.
        Chances of about 13 to 15 pregnancies with perhaps 8-10 live births with perhaps nearly half of those not making it to 5 yo.
        Kids typically out of school by 13 – if they make it that far. eg Keith Holyoake left school at 12 because his father died.
        No penicillin or antibiotics.
        Get a scratch on the barb wire fence and it could be all over.
        Still plenty of tetanus, polio, TB etc around in 1900.
        Need to do the washing – no Simpson automatic or Miele front loader.
        No ma’am: Chop up some wood, build a fire under the copper, stand there and stir around the washing and so on…
        No KFC, Maccas or BK…
        Get the picture.

        Roll forward to 2000: Vacuums cleaners; microwaves, radio, TV, DVD, car (2 or more) , free doctors visits for kids, insulated houses, women’s vote, DPB, voting rights, equal pay legislation etc.
        That is a 100 year shift.

        Now, go back 250 years ago and compare and contrast.
        You will find many of these people don’t read widely and don’t actually understand history and are not curious to do so. They just get a pass mark on biased, prescribed material.

        I cribbed some of the above from an article I read 7 or 8 years ago on why women gladly became nuns in 1900 but by 2000 – no thanks. Life as a nun compared to a hard working mother with few rewards made the nunnery look attractive. T’was an interesting read.
        Then the world moved on to make life easier with inventions from African americans, Africans, Chippewa, Malays etc but none from white males.
        Ok I’m talking crap there, but then again that underscores the re-writing of history that is going on.

        In addition, how will historians get on in the future when the ‘papers of record’ are now full of so much non factual, biased garbage? What will be their resource when looking at older material?

        The biggest problems in 2019: your iPhone goes flat, there’s a fire at KFC and you can’t buy takeeawei, or someone ghosted you on fakebook.
        These people reinventing history are cuckoo.
        How much do PC ‘history teachers’ really know. (a nod to South Park and ‘PC Principal’)
        If they want sympathy over their pay levels , this does not help an already precarious situation.

        Interesting thread, but sad to see further confirmation of what we already know.
        Unfortunately for your son, it is hard to go against the social norm in these situations.

  10. I stole this from Farrar.

    Nothing for business.

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s pre-budget outing at the Grand Millennium Hotel in Auckland on Friday to an audience bursting with high-powered business types was unsurprisingly light on any mention of business.
    “Nothing for business” and “disappointing” were common refrains around the room as the PM wrapped-up her holistic vision for next week’s first wellbeing budget.

    I would have thought if you were speaking to a business audience about the Budget, you would at least spend a fair bit of time talking about businesses as they are the ones who generate the tax and the jobs that allow the Government to spend money.

    Warren Green, chief executive officer of Active Roofing, summed up the sentiment.
    “It was a bit disappointing,” he said.
    “It was more like a Labour Party ideological fairytale. But she’s a great orator.”

    What an excellent description of the PM – a great orator for an ideological fairytale!

      This thing is just saying what the communist-addled want to hear. That’s not oratory.

      Oratory is convincing people to commit to, or think, what you want, not just reinforcing what they already think.

      Without the slime backing pretending otherwise, every disgusting statement this thing makes is just a gush of words, nothing more than fill for an oratory waste basket.

  11. Cindy is setting herself up for potentially serious neck / back problems in her later life.

    Her posture is terrible as she does not hold her head in an upright position. She tends to lean her head forward stretching her neck.

    She does appear to have an unusually long neck along with her long fingers – a medical condition called Arachnodactyly also known as Spider Fingers.

    Just an observation from one of her loyal serfs.

    • What’s your take on the brave new world of natal care Rachael? I personally wish a pox on the arrogant knowalls that modern day midwives seem to be. Our kids were born in hospitals with GPs who specialised in obstetrics in attendance. Our grandkids IMHO were lucky to make it, their mothers being reliant on the culturally expert, medically inept sisterhood, a viewpoint shared with my beloved.

      I fully accept that there are a few mad women who want to give birth suspended from a banana tree, in a pool or whatever & all power to them. Most however, seem to want competent care.

      • Cough, I thought about a pool birth, I thought how nice and relaxing it would be and less shock on the baby from coming from a nice warm, dark ,wet, place to a dry, brightly lit world where you get smacked on the bottom.

        Certainly there were many differences from my first experience in 1978, stirrups, shaved, enemas, that awful smelling gas, and a jab of pethidine in the leg, attended by my Dr. Mind you I was 17, 0- blood type, baby jaundiced, and under uv lights nearly needed a blood transfusion. In those days they used to bind your breasts as well. So it was all a bit of a shock lol. I remember getting ante natal advice from an old spinster, looked 70.

        No 2 in 1990, there was none of that shit, but he was transverse lie, so I had a caesarian at Waikato Hospital.

        No 3 in 1992 was breech and was turned, not to be recommended lol but then came fast naturally without pain relief.

        So I agree with you about them being lucky to be alive, all pre mid wives.

        My grandchildren have had midwives, but have all been caesarians, so they didn’t have to attend the births as such, but when my daughter in law swapped towns while pregnant she had trouble finding one to pick up the care, because the remuneration wouldn’t be great apparently.

        But as one of them is quite a broken baby, he has laryngomalacia, we have had a lot of interaction with medical professionals and it is appalling, the odd patch of light, but conflicting information. The mother relying on Dr Google more than the professionals, as visits are so infrequent and then at least she can converse on the subject and put forward suggestions as he is a typical.

        There were two hospital midwives what attended him after birth, one said that he had a tongue tie, the other disagreed, and that was the end of it, it cost 300$ to get it fixed privately after breast feeding etc failed, lots of stress and feelings of failure, whereas at birth, it would have been free and over with.

        I know a woman who is pregnant with her first, was hospitalised at 6 weeks for a week as had lost 10 kg from vomiting. Was hospitalized again at 3 months for another week, and had lost another 9kgs, between times her midwife told her to lose more weight, so she had been going for walks after work and limiting eating but her anti nausea medication required food. Is not that big, totally wrong advice in my opinion. The hospital dieticians etc agreed that it was ridiculous, as did I when I had to take her to the hospital. The little parasites suck all the goodness out of their hosts as it is, so hardly the time to be told to diet when so much has already been lost. Anyway the baby is okay apparently.

        I just wonder about all of these cultural accommodations being made, I do not have a problem with them as such, as long as my culture is also respected, can a European woman demand staff from her own culture to attend, like others can?
