  1. Wakey, wakey , my fellow ferals etc. etc. etc. (You know who you are)

    ‘Tis Friday, we ‘survived’ ANZAC day (Some more than others), and luxflakes is still in charge /////////// (or at least he likes to believe he is).

  2. Isn’t it great to see we are right up there with the biggest bully of them all Australia? Go fuck yourself is a perfect response to Adern the biggest CCCCC of them all, and Luxflakes the biggest wo man with a penis of them all. What a disappointment he must be for all those who party voted national. I give thanks every day that I did not vote for the wanker. One may as well have voted for the three despicable bastard parties liarbor, green and tpm makes me vomit a little to even think of them.
    Have a good day regardless if you are going to relax and take it easy or working. Be safe.

  3. “But a parliament that covers up this corruption is just as corrupt” – then German MEP Christine Anderson was censored in the European parliament whilst exposing the corruption of Ursula Von der Leyen and the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine deal for the EU.

  4. Road user charges for all drivers? What Govt’s policy will mean for you
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/04/26/road-user-charges-for-all-drivers-what-govts-policy-will-mean-for-you/

    At the moment, New Zealand’s drivers pay for the land transport system in a few different ways, including the vehicle licence (or “rego”) fee, road user charges (RUC) and the petrol excise duty (PED).

    Vehicles that weigh more than 3500kg pay RUC.

    Lighter vehicles also pay RUC if they are powered by diesel, electricity or another fuel that isn’t taxed at its source.

    Light electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrids only began paying road user charges this month. EVs that weigh more than 3500kg are still exempt from paying RUC, but will start paying them after December 31, 2025.

    Other drivers currently pay a levy when they buy petrol for their vehicle, but the Government wants to eventually replace that fuel tax with a road user charge.

    “Moving all vehicles into the road user charges system will mean all motorists pay for road maintenance based on the kilometres travelled, rather than the amount of fuel they put in their tanks,” he said.

    • ….. The agency also said it expected “an increase of non-compliance and debt” with EV drivers entering the RUC system — problems that would presumably extend to other drivers also switching to road user charges.

      It sounds suspiciously like there will be something very digital techy to the enforcement of this.
      Like will there be a “Kill switch” to your vehicle for so many kilometres that are not paid for?
      Some form of tag via GPS that can figure approximate distance travelled?

      I know the old fashion way was to set up “checkpoints” where all vechicles are pulled over and checked, like will it be incorporated with breath-testing, drug testing to provide the gloss, that “we need to do this for your safety”.
      To create a painful problem, where the solution is some sealed control unit put into one’s engine system.

      Just how will it be linked to “Big Brother” then direct to your bank account?
      Of course 4G & 5G will be set up for the bureaucratic controls.
      If no money in the account, then will the vechicle be seized for so many days?

      • Don’t vote for the party that supports such intrusions into your freedom.

        What an opportunity for the birth of a conservative party to conserve your rights and responsibilities…

        (Would the NZ public vote for freedom? It is scary to a lot of people, after all. You can open the cage door, but what if the bird is too fearful to venture out?)

      • It sounds suspiciously like there will be something very digital techy to the enforcement of this.

        You’re NOT at all SIMPLE, despite your choice of name, mate! 😀 The idea that we need RUCs to cover the cost of roading instead of petrol tax is absolute bullshit, because the only reason to buy fucking petrol is to bloody drive, isn’t it!

        Big Brother has his ugly hands all over this. The next thing will be that people are forbidden to drive more than x kms per month to ‘save the planet’, or, as you say, some sort of kill switch installed as a compulsory part in the WOF.

        Fucking bastards all of them. When I talk to normies about this kinda stuff and I get the response “oh it won’t happen, stop being paranoid” I ask them how it felt to have to show their papers in order to enter a restaurant or use a public library. Cunts.

    • Theyu should add a dumping charge to all inpotered cars as well. No reason the ratepayers and taxpayers should subsidize that and every new car should be taxed for that and for being here. Help pay for the new roads they all want. stop people collecting junk cars.
      Should ban depreciation of business cars over 30k.

    • Paying at the pump for petrol road levies or via RUC is not the issue. What should be ringing alarm bells is the way in which the government intends to collect the money.

      Presently RUCs for diesel & electric vehicles are paid for on line & a “sticker” displaying start/finish odometer reading is displayed on the windscreen. Whether the levies have been paid is checked occasionally by police checkpoints & yearly at WOF inspections. This can be hit & miss. It doesn’t greatly exercise the imagination to see a massive shortfall in revenue from Northland & the East Coast where residents already regard Rego, WOF & insurance as optional & extra.

      What will be needed & indeed the rationale behind the current push for RUCs for all vehicles will be a GPS enabled system where every vehicle’s location & RUC status is self reported. It will likely be provided by some compulsory gadget to be retrofitted (doubtlessly sold to the morons, somehow, as a safety measure) that reports home to big brother.

      Imagine the warm fuzzy feelings induced by knowing that your every wheel revolution is being tracked in real time by authorities.

  6. We always hear “the rules” from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side.
    Please note these are all numbered “1”

    Here is the first batch:

    1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don’t hear us bitching about you leaving it down.
    1. Birthdays, Valentines, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present yet again!
    1. Sometimes we are not thinking about you. Live with it.
    1. Sunday = sports. It’s like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
    1. Don’t cut your hair. Ever. Long hair is always more attractive than short hair. One of the big reasons guys fear getting married is that married women always cut their hair, and by then you’re stuck with her.

    • i hope the second batch of rules entails being obedient/ submissive esp when it comes to bedroom activities!!!
      oh yeah, and not blowing out n getting real fat. if one marries a non lard arse then they should expect things to stay that way (applies to both parties).

      • ……” being obedient/ submissive”…….

        Boring but whatever floats your boat.

        Though I definitely go along with your thoughts about chicky babes turning into porkers. Fortunately I headed that one off at the pass about fifty five years ago when I told my beloved that if she ended up fat like her sister she’d be a solo mother.

        She’s still < 8 stone! 🙂

  7. Cashless Society: WEF Boasts That 98% Of Central Banks Are Adopting CBDCs

    Whatever happened to the WEF? One minute they were everywhere in the media and now they have all but disappeared from public discourse. After the pandemic agenda was defeated and the plan to exploit public fear to create a perpetual medical autocracy was exposed, Klaus Schwab and his merry band of globalists slithered back into the woodwork. To be sure, we’ll be seeing them again one day, but for now the WEF has relegated itself away from the spotlight and into the dark recesses of the Davos echo chamber.

    Much of their discussions now focus on issues like climate change or DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion), but one vital subject continues to pop up in the white papers of global think tanks and it’s a program that was introduced very publicly during covid. Every person that cares about economic freedom should be wary of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) as perhaps the biggest threat to human liberty since the attempted introduction of vaccine passports.

    • In the meantime the: NZ coalition Government collects in various forms it Environment, Social, Governance, ESG => Carbon taxes to hand over $ 41 million to the Asian Development Bank, which after its high life executive’s salaries & bonuses, then can entrap & enforce others in Vietnam, Indonesia & the Philippines.
      Though I do figure that a sprinkle of $ would most likely have a blind in the systemic compliance.

      • ESG as cancer, hard to get rid of. Lots of companies have this corporate cancer and will fall. ESG’s are gigantic fem powered icebergs adrift in the world ready to flip or crush any who get in its path. Can’t recall now, so sorry Larry Fink, you hitched to a femberg.

  8. Free speech Union recommended tweet to read.
    Optimocracy
    @optimocracyhq
    I have worked in the public sector for around 12 years.
    My role is impacted by the staff reductions.

    I don’t agree with the way it is happening in every agency. It’s horrible for those impacted & I sympathise with them. I’m not a coalition voter.
    But I support the cuts. Why?

    – I have seen first hand unbelievable levels of waste & inefficiency in the public sector.
    – I have seen first hand the lack of accountability for leaders, managers & staff failing to deliver (& worse, in many cases them being promoted).
    – I have seen first hand agencies not performing (& in many cases not even able to properly measure performance) & little to nothing changing except their head-count going up.
    – I have seen first hand consultancies get rich on the tax payers dime while delivering little value (& in some cases making things demonstrably worse), & agencies not instead investing in building the internal capability required so they wouldn’t need consultants.
    – I have seen first hand good people coming into work every day & working hard because they genuinely care about our country & want to contribute – despite working under poor cultures, poor systems, poor leadership, poor management, poor strategies, poor execution.

    Yes, our agencies do deliver some great work we should all be very proud of.
    Yes, we do have some great leaders & managers in the public service.
    Yes, there are many positives to celebrate.
    But we are a long, long way from getting the return on investment we should from our public sector.

    It doesn’t matter which party is in power, the public sector needs recalibrating, with a real & genuine focus on measurable performance so we can, in future, make informed, objective, defensible & transparent decisions about whether we increase or reduce their headcount.

    • Left or right, we all end up serving the technological beast. Bureaucrats whether private or state drive the same whip, and are the secret source of the Uniparty Vibe we all feel but can’t place. If they are more efficient they’ll get to the grey top down tyranny faster. Probably better if they are blithering wasteful idiots. Mordor sees all, knows all.

    The public service is no longer an agency to put government policies into practise. It has morphed into a trough to provide employment to DEI driven feminists whose degrees in politics & wimmin’s studies have no possible purpose in the real world.

  10. New Zealanders faced the second-biggest tax raises in the developed world last year, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) says.

    The intergovernmental agency said the average change in personal income tax in New Zealand was 4.5 percent higher last year compared with 2022.

    That was only behind Australia, where taxes rose 7.6 percent in the same period.

    Single Kiwis earning the average wage were paying tax at a rate of 24.9 percent in 2023, up from 23.2 percent a year prior, according to the OECD data released on Thursday.

    In comparison, those earning 167 percent of the average wage only faced a 0.5 percent increase in the same period (25.3-25.8 pct).

    New Zealand was also among countries with the highest percentage of labour costs paid in personal income tax.

    Paul Goldsmith did his first interview in his new Media Minister role on Radio NZ this morning.

    When asked how he could help NZ media, he had an opportunity to rule out re-introduction of Jacinda Ardern’s PIJF but did not do so.

    Everyone is now saying Melissa Lee was doing a good job at the same time as they say Luxon did the right thing in sacking her. One of those propositions can’t be true.

    • How weak that we rely on prison thugs to mete out justice. That is a big problem. We are too scared to call out heinous crimes of pedophilia and rape, and end the perpetrators existence. We giggle and hope some thug does it. Passive aggressive. Weak. Gay

  12. The yen is weakening against the US dollar. (Hindsight is a wonderful thing!)
    I will probably go to Japan in October and draw down my Japanese bank account to fund my trip. I look forward to those cheap convenience-store breakfasts (Coffee 120 yen. Danish pastry 150 yen. Pre-wrapped chorizo hot dog (cold) 180 yen.) That comes to 450 yen for breakfast (which is about $NZ4.90. In Auckland, a breakfast of similar quality would be at least double that.

  13. A building apprentice’s late-night walk to get a pie in Waipukurau turned into a nightmare when he was chased and assaulted by what he alleges was a group of youths.

    Reece Hingaia, 24, was left critically injured with multiple broken ribs, a collapsed lung and a concussion last Wednesday after the group beat him and hit him with what he understands was a scooter.

    He was discharged on Monday this week after days of recovering in hospital.

    • From https://waitangitribunal.govt.nz/assets/WT-The-claims-process-of-the-Waitangi-Tribunal.pdf

      # The Waitangi Tribunal is unusual in that it was established
      as a permanent commission of inquiry. It differs from a court
      in several important respects:
      . Generally, the Tribunal has authority only to make recom-
      mendations. In most instances, its recommendations do
      not bind the Crown, the claimants, or any others partici-
      pating in the inquiries.

      # The Tribunal’s process is more inquisitorial and less ad-
      versarial than that followed by the courts. In particular, it
      can conduct its own research to try to find the truth of a
      matter.

      # The Tribunal’s process is flexible – the Tribunal is not nec-
      essarily required to follow the rules of evidence that usu-
      ally apply in the courts, and it may adapt its procedures as
      it thinks fit. For example, the Tribunal may follow ‘te
      kawa o te marae……..

      The point I’m laboriously making is that the Waitangi Tribunal isn’t a court & was never meant to be seen as such. It’s a hybrid & as such sits at a mid point between a court & a commission of enquiry.

  14. An Auckland man deported from Australia as a 501 after serving prison time as a teenager for a murder-for-hire plot involving a victim with cerebral palsy is again wanted by police.

    This time, it’s for failing to appear in a New Zealand court for a wild 100km police chase in a stolen $249,000 Porsche.

    At one point during the hour-long April 2023 pursuit, Sifa Tevita, now 37, had 20 police vehicles following him.

  15. In Their Own Words: Climate Alarmists Debunk Their ‘Science’
    Feb 5, 2013

    IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer, speaking in November 2010, advised that: “…one has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth…”

  16. I just realised that it’s been two weeks since the kiddy-winkies staged a protest about climate change. No anger or outrage. No demands for the immature brats to be listened to. Strange I thought.

    Then I remembered that we’re in the second week of the school holidays.
