  2. Well of course he was.

    Speaker Trevor Mallard embroiled in Labour Hutt South donations controversy
    It’s been a mystery for nearly three decades, but Stuff has finally been able to reveal details of the close relationship between the Labour Party and the New Zealand Professional Firefighters Union (NZPFU).

    That relationship may seem immaterial now, but in the late 1990s the two organisations were at the forefront of the country’s first citizens-initiated referendum and drove the political debate in its aftermath.

    It’s no surprise that Labour had a close relationship with the union. Unions are integral to the party’s history and its constitution, with affiliated labour unions still having a strong say who leads the party.

    But the relationship between the NZPFU and the party runs closer than most.

    During the late 1990s, reforms of the Fire Service were a hot button political issue. The then-National Government (and later National-NZ First Coalition) proposed cutting the number of professional firefighters and changing the way the Fire Service was funded.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/300106236/speaker-trevor-mallard-embroiled-in-labour-hutt-south-donations-controversy

    In a note published on the NZPFU’s website in 1998, the Union thanked Mallard and Grant Gillon, an Alliance MP, for following up on issues it had raised with them.

    “The Union appreciates very much the assistance given by both Trevor Mallard (Labour) and Grant Gillon (Alliance) in following up various issues for the Union with the Minister of Internal Affairs – particularly through the use of written questions to the Minister,” the note said.
    That release has since disappeared from the internet, but the quote has been preserved forever in a Government press release from June 1998, in which then-NZ First Internal Affairs Minister Jack Elder called the episode a “gross abuse of Parliamentary process”.

    The Parliamentary record shows dozens of written questions from Mallard that term, quizzing both Elder and Prime Minister Jenny Shipley on everything from the upkeep of buildings, pay of fire service executives, and allegations of a conflict of interest concerning then-head of the fire service, Roger Estall.

    No surprises there with this sleaze.
    Retire him.

      • As long as Mallard as being Speaker of the House has finished so we don’t have to put up with his blatantly unfair partisan support for one side of the house over the other and his extra special protection for the SLG.

    “Ultimately, we were able to do this due to the resolve of our community who helped us identify this harmful behaviour in their neighbourhoods and came forward to let us know,” he said.

    “It is not lost on our communities that methamphetamine use has the greatest impact on our most vulnerable and we need to work in partnership to disrupt this type of offending.”

    He said information can be anything from unusual comings and goings of vehicles, to chemical odours, to the presence of security or surveillance systems.

  4. The rubber hits the road today with the all-important opening up of the Government’s books today. The Treasury will unveil its Pre-election Economic and Fiscal Update (Prefu) – something it required by law to do ahead of every New Zealand election. It is expected to reveal the country has a $200 billion dollar deficit. Just a little larger than Stephen Joyce’s $11b hole the left made so much fuss over.

    Robbo has warned that unveiling of New Zealand’s GDP numbers on Thursday will “not be pretty reading”.

    Coronavirus: Mongrel Mob members ignore COVID-19 gathering limits in tangihanga for fallen mobster
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/09/coronavirus-mongrel-mob-members-ignore-covid-19-gathering-limits-in-tangihanga-for-fallen-mobster.html

    Gangsters in Auckland have flouted the Government’s COVID-19 gathering rules by holding a huge tangihanga for a fallen Mongrel Mob member.

    Video footage from the funeral posted to Facebook on Monday shows a hearse being escorted by dozens of people down a street in the south Auckland suburb of Papakura.

  9. How to turn back whales that have taken the wrong turn and end up in salty croc infested tidal river.

    Mystery surrounds humpback whales’ journey up crocodile-infested river Australian river

    Marine authorities are puzzling over how to persuade at least one wayward humpback whale to leave a murky, crocodile-infested river in northern Australia and continue an annual migration to Antarctica.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/world/mystery-surrounds-humpback-whales-journey-up-crocodile-infested-river-australian?auto=6190809528001

    He estimated there were two adults and a younger whale, around 10 metres to 12 metres long.

    “The west Australian humpback whale population has absolutely exploded. It’s the great conservation success story in the ocean,” Fowler said.

    “There are so many humpbacks heading up the W.A. (Western Australia state) coast now, they’re bound to end up in new places. What’s incredibly weird is the fact that they’re up a muddy, shallow river full of crocodiles — that’s unheard of,” he said.

    Government’s ‘panicked’ Covid-19 response has caused ‘enormous harm’ – Judith Collins

    “I think the Government panicked around Covid-19 and we’ve been spun a whole lot of stories around how dreadful it is in Australia. It’s not at all. It’s only Victoria which is a basket case,” Collins said.

    “They’ve actually got some leadership and they’ve got some people that understand,” Collins said. “You don’t have to stuff the economy just to keep people safe.”

    “What we’ve seen in New Zealand is a big fat hammer of the state coming down and frightening people, and we’ve had panic essentially, and a panicked Government has caused enormous harm to the economy, which means that we’ve got a lot of people who are now looking at being unemployed.”

    • Yes, and I hear today being taxed to provide another $200M for meals in schools. Subsidising parents responsibility to care and provide for their children is not my idea of a fair deal for taxpayers needing to meet their own families needs. The Minister of Education has not got that one right at all.

      Personal responsibility means caring for your own and not expecting a state handout for basic parental duties. The current government may think a further election bribe is OK but this taxpayer does not. The handout mentality needs to be slowed and then stopped rather than added to and perpetuated.

  12. NZ Election 2020: Judith Collins expecting dire news at pre-election economic update
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/09/nz-election-2020-judith-collins-expecting-dire-news-at-pre-election-economic-update.html

    But the Leader of the Opposition believes there will be dire news on Wednesday, claiming the Government “panicked” with its COVID-19 response.

    “They shut down just about everything, including the construction industry. I am now hearing of property developers or people doing the buildings, you know, the building people building houses, who are going broke. Why? Because they had months of not being able to get work done,” Collins told The AM Show on Wednesday morning.

    “It is [a] totally naive situation to expect people to just keep going with businesses, keep up the costs and just think that’s going to solve it. I think today, when the Government is forced to open its books, we are going to see just how bad things are.”

  13. The aircraft carrier U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln was finally inching up to the pier at homeport when the Captain of the ship noticed a sailor on the flight deck gesturing wildly with semaphore flags. He then noticed an attractive young woman standing on top of a station wagon, also waving semaphore flags.

    Always concerned about security and never having seen something like this, the Captain barked at his Bridge Signalman, “What message are those two people sending?”

    The Signalman concentrated intently and soon reported, “Sir, he is sending FOXTROT-FOXTROT and she is sending ECHO-FOXTROT.”

    Not having any clue as to what these messages could mean, the Captain dispatched an armed Marine to escort the sailor back to the Bridge.

    The sailor arrived, out of breath from running up the many ladders to the bridge, and saluted smartly. “Seaman Endicott reporting as ordered, sir!”

    “Seaman”, shouted the Captain, “Who is that woman on the pier and why are you exchanging signals FF and EF?”

    “Sir, that’s my wife, Sir, and she wants to eat first!”

    Dozens of children injured after school bus and train collide in Manawatu
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/09/person-trapped-after-school-bus-and-train-collide-in-manawatu.html

    A spokesperson confirmed no children were seriously injured and the total number of children on the bus is being determined.

    A witness told Newshub the bus involved was a school bus carrying high school students and there are now 30 to 40 children wrapped in blankets on the side of the road.

    They said they have not seen the driver.

    The front of the bus was allegedly hit in the incident and is covered in a large tarpaulin to hide it, the witness said.

    • How could a professional driver fail to stop at a train crossing (assuming that the crossing had no barriers, bells or lights?)
      It reminds me of that 31-year-old stevedore and father of 7 who was in a “do not enter” zone on board a container ship and was squashed by a falling container.
      A company can have safety rules and can test workers to see if they understand these rules, but unless you have a supervisor watching each individual worker all the time, you cannot prevent workers from chosing to place themselves in danger, either because of negligence or a desire to get the job done quickly.
      Was this the same for the bus driver? Negligence or time pressure?

  17. After the 6 week lockdown people went on a spending spree. This spending will skew the figures on the predicted future economic plunge.

    What to expect when Grant Robertson opens the Government’s books
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/09/what-to-expect-when-grant-robertson-opens-the-government-s-books.html

    Kiwibank’s picking a 12.5 percent drop for the quarter, ASB 11 percent and the NZIER 10.5 percent. All predicted much bigger drops earlier in the year.

    “The bounce out of the lockdown was really vigorous – much more vigorous than anyone really could have expected,” ANZ chief economist Sharon Zollner told The AM Show on Wednesday.

    But it was “assisted by an enormous fiscal spend-up” that “can’t be sustained”, she said. The Government has borrowed tens of billions of dollars – at record low interest rates – to spend on things like the wage subsidy, bringing forward infrastructure projects and setting up a rainy day fund, with the future trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic uncertain.

    “It’s extremely expensive,” said Zollner. “The question is, where do we actually land when that fiscal tsunami starts to recede? And also the tourism hit from the closed border is really a summer story, so we haven’t yet felt that either.”

    • There are reports in the US that car loan deliquencies are actually falling, due to people using the extra money from job subsidies to pay off their loans. Usually in a recession the number of loan delinquencies rises. This time it’s different.

      All these pain-killing subsidies must surely lead to an increase in the numbers of “zombie jobs” and “zombie companies” that are actuallyt dead but jst don’t know it. Yet.

    Let me clarify what the smelly MAGGOT means over 24 hours….
    (1) Take a $300.000 luxury bus and load his fat bloated arse onto it.
    (2) stop at a few small quaint towns and lecture 11 people about how fucking good you are.
    (3) Leave the small quaint town and find a big town with a 4 star hotel,
    (4) Go to the best restaurant within the entire city for free gourmet meal and free piss.
    (5) Stop at wholesalers for premium whiskey purchase,
    (6) Drink the bottle of whiskey and smoke untold ciggies until 2am,
    (7) Wake in the morning for a 5 star brunch
    (8) Back into luxury bus and out to another quaint small town,
    THATS WHAT THE LITTLE C—T CONSIDERS “HARD CAMPAIGNING” AND THE TAXPAYER IS PICKING UP THE TAB.

  19. My daughter has a back-room function as a designer for a computing company in the Auckland CBD.
    Until March of this year, she would commute into the head office five days a week. All this has changed.
    She now mainly works from home (and is very busy) and only goes into the office once or twice a week when face-to-face communication is essential.
    Covid-19 has provided the push to get companies up and over the fear-and-uncertainty barrier to having more back-room staff working from home. I think this will be a permanent change that will bring efficiencies and cost-savings for the companies.
    In a way, this marks a full circle in the Industrial Revolution. Two hundred years ago, before the mills and factories, the workers worked near or at their homes. Now we are back where we started.

      What I would like to see is companies recognising that there is no need to have offices in the CBD or nearby and they can do just as well in the suburbs or even better, out of the main cities.

  21. National release $800 million health plan ahead of election, including increased funding for Pharmac

    National wants to increase funding for Pharmac and have reiterated earlier promises to establish a rare disorder fund of $20 million over four years and a dedicated cancer drug fund costing $200 million over four years.

    It also wants to increase funding for cochlear implants and create a “surgical mesh register to allow for the full scope of the problem to be revealed, and to allow for proactive action to be taken to work with patients who may be affected”, the policy states.

    National’s health spokesperson Dr Shane Reti said the new initiatives had been costed at $800m over four years.

    “These are practical solutions that will have a tangible impact on New Zealander’s lives for generations to come.”

    National also want to add primary care navigators – non-clinical frontline staff – to every general practice, costing $64m a year.

    “Primary care navigators will support general practitioners by providing the additional time to talk to patients who need help accessing the right services.

        • セブンスター Seven Stars cigarettes get their name from the combination of the images of “lucky seven” and the image of the dawning of the age of space exploration.
          The brand was launched in 1969, the year of the moon landing. See the reference below.
          Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Stars_(cigarette)

          I don’t thing the “Seven Stars” name is a direct link to Subaru.

          Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades star cluster M45, or the “Seven Sisters” (one of whom tradition says is invisible – hence only six stars in the Subaru logo), which in turn inspires the logo and alludes to the companies that merged to create Fuji Heavy Industries (now renamed as the Japanese transportation conglomerate “Subaru Corporation”).

    Trump touts ‘dawn of a new Middle East’ as Israel signs pacts with two Arab states at White House

    Israel today signed historic diplomatic pacts with two Gulf Arab states at a White House ceremony that President Donald Trump declared will mark the “dawn of a new Middle East”, casting himself as an international peacemaker at the height of his reelection campaign.

    “We’re here this afternoon to change the course of history,” Trump said from a balcony overlooking the South Lawn. “After decades of division and conflict, we mark the dawn of a new Middle East.”

    Under the agreements, the countries have committed to exchange embassies and ambassadors and to cooperate on a broad array of issues, including education, healthcare, trade and security.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the day “is a pivot of history. It heralds a new dawn of peace.”

        around Bethlehem with cameras all over them, I have seen the Palestinian land
        confiscated by Israel for more Jewish settlements, I have seen the heavily
        armed IDF at border crossings between Israel and Palestine. And that asshole
        Netanyahu has encouraged all of this. Fuck you. What have you seen?

              This is why so many Jews don’t support the fanatical Zionist movement. They have learnt from history that you can only abuse the goyim so much, before they push back.

              The attrocities of Israel should be dealt with now, to protect the Jews in the future.

  24. Air New Zealand to cut 385 more jobs, but keeps Shanghai-based contractors – union
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/travel/2020/09/air-new-zealand-to-cut-385-more-jobs-but-keeps-shanghai-based-contractors-union.html

    Air New Zealand appears set to cut a further 385 cabin crew jobs less than a month after the airline’s CEO said there were “no plans to decrease or increase the number of staff” the airline has.

    An internal email sent to airline staff on Wednesday said a lack of demand for international travel means there will be changes made to their international schedule and as a result, further job cuts.

    DECADE OF DEFICITS REVEALED AS TREASURY OPENS THE BOOKS

    Treasury is now projecting deficits right out until the end of their projection range in 2033/34. This is a change from its forecasts at the May Budget – when Treasury had expected we would return to surplus by 2027/28.

    The result for taxpayers: net crown debt is expected to be $269.3 billion – or $149,600 per household – in 2033/34. That’s up from the $132,700 per household forecast at the Budget in May.

      Normal people can’t imagine the depth of her hate and rage towards humanity.

      You are going to see this darkness as the population becomes restless and the devastated economy bites hard. She will use ruthless and brutal means to eliminate dissidents.

      • I agree that this continued fear mongering is more to do with “local” issues and the election rather than Agenda 21. The same thing is happening in the states of Australia.

        Someone has to take the economic figures out today and put them in very simple terms that the average householder / mortgage holder can understand. and relate to. Maybe put them in terms of a household budget and relate it to an average two income family and note what has changed.

  29. Economic update ‘very dire reading’, Govt have ‘a lot to answer for’ – Judith Collins

    New Zealand’s economic update is “very dire reading”, says National leader Judith Collins, who added that the Government have “a lot to answer for”.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/economic-update-very-dire-reading-govt-have-lot-answer-judith-collins?auto=6191202272001

    “We are looking at or are in, the worst economic recession in living memory,” Collins said.

    “It’s not just our children that pay for this, but most likely our grandchildren. This is a really serious time.”

    She said the Government “has a lot to answer for”.

    “The Australians have a seven per cent drop, we are looking at a 16 per cent drop.

    “The Government didn’t need to shut down the construction industry – that’s just a starter.

    “Instead we’ve been yo-yo-ing in and out of lockdown, we’ve still got all of the country in at least Level 2, that is really hard for people.”

    Unemployment was expected to peak at 7.8 per cent in the March 2022 quarter, with the near-term economic outlook “less negative” than previously forecast.

    “Unemployment will be substantially worse in 2022 and 2023. Treasury predicts 100,000 more New Zealanders will lose their jobs in the next two years,” Collins said.

  30. According to Minister Responsible for Pike River Re-entry Andrew Little, the critical area for forensic examination known as Pit Bottom in Stone has been reached.

    “The infrastructure located in Pit Bottom in Stone is of very significant interest in determining why 29 men went to work on 19 November 2010 and never came home,” Little said.
    There is a lot of work to be done now the Pit Bottom in Stone roadways have been reached.

    The Government outlined the next steps:

    Recovery of the drift will continue up to the existing Rocsil plug at 2,240 metres. This section of about 360 metres will require extensive re-support work and the removal of a debris field so it could take up to 2 months (assuming no unexpected conditions that are not currently known)

        If the union was stronger it would have been prevented.

        1

          • It should be compulsory reading for managers.

            Serious technical issues were dealt with by PR and corporate spin. The specialists they hired were ignored. It was not an unexpected freak event. It was the very outcome experts warned about.

            It was 100% a failure of corrupt managers and nothing to do with unions.

            0

        • Sorry. I deal in facts & the bibliographer of of former CTU boss Helen Kelly ranks in my estimations along with the Brothers Grimm. There is anecdotal evidence that miners placing plastic bags over sensors & blowing compressed air over them was common practise at the mine.

          I do not & never will support management understating risk or putting worker’s lives at risk but the 29 men who died at Pike River were instrumental in the occasion of their own deaths.

          5

          2

                • I don’t doubt they put bags over the sensors. Because that was the MANAGEMENT approach to technical safety issues. The management did way worse than that. The whole design of the mine was a dumpster fire.

                  It’s naive to fantasize the miners just decided to do that for shits and giggles.

                  • FFS! Put yourself in a miner’s position.

                    Even if & it’s a fucking big “IF” management told you to put a bag over a sensor or treat it with compressed air to stop the noise would you do it?

                    No you wouldn’t. The reason 29 men didn’t go home that night was that their greed for the big money they were earning exceeded their instinct for survival.

                    Management were fools but the workers were bigger ones.

      https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/lifestyle/2020/09/christchurch-gelato-store-makes-special-flavours-for-political-party-leaders.html

      Each leader has their own flavour of gelato. There’s cookies and cream for ‘Cookie Crusher Collins’, ‘Jacinda Fever’ – or red velvet cake – for the Prime Minister, ‘David S’more’ – or marshmallow and chocolate – for ACT’s leader, ‘A Shaw High’ made with pistachio and hemp brownies for the Green Party co-leaders and ‘Naughty Ol’ Winston’ made with liquorice and chocolate lumps for the New Zealand First leader.

      News of the high poll rating was broken to Collins by Newshub in Parliament on Wednesday.

      “Am I? I love it, maybe I should visit them,” she said.

      Seymour said he was “stoked” to be coming in third in the scoop poll.

      “I’ve heard it’s the most accurate poll in New Zealand,” he joked.

      He’s also happy with his flavour.

      “Delectable, dreamy and incisive, a bit like the real thing,” he said.

    Confusion, lack of leadership and poor vaccine distribution. Those are some of the themes laid bare in two critical reports on the Health Ministry’s measles and influenza campaigns.

    A review of flu vaccine distribution chains found “extreme frustration at the inefficiencies”.

    And a separate report into measles was even more scathing. It found public health was “understaffed” and providers “ran out of vaccine stock” during last year’s outbreak. And those in charge lacked training in how to manage such a crisis.

        His 3 years prior to that as CEO of Hutt Valley DHB was no victory either.
        Blofeld is a strong self promoter.
        Since his start has been the :-
        -The Meningitis outbreak with poor handling
        -The Measles outbreak with poor handling that spread the disease throughout the Pacific and resulted in 83 dead babies alone, in Samoa
        -Now Covid and dreadful handling.
        This baby killer Blofeld has a dreadful record.
        I would like to think if Tony Ryall was in charge Blofeld would be ‘Bonded’ .

        It does look like David Clark is a Post Turtle and Ardern and Blofeld are working in collusion.
        An item in the toolkit of Marxists is Fear.
        They generate this in spades.

        Most DHBs ran at a loss last year (end 30 June 2019)
        This could be because they want to end DHBs (a H Clark creation)
        However. I do not think they are that cunning.
        Just stupid mindless marxists with pretty much no-one in the top 10 in cabinet having worked in the private sector, even as an employee.

        Massive incompetence has amplified a solid challenge into a serious FAIL.
        Presided over by idiots who could not deliver even 5% of promised new build houses or any transport projects.

        Ritchie Cunningham press release Sept 2020
        ‘We may not have the funds to pay staff or for surgery (despite closing theatres for more than 2 months) but we promise to Be Kind and give lots of hugs.”

        Yep, health is bad.
        In addition the doctors who trained for the last 7-8 years are now coming off compulsory training and have to seek out their own employment.
        Many cannot find work for next year.
        They cannot go overseas as an option as many previously took.

        Doctors cannot find employment (a relative in this situation right now)
        This is why this has not been a medical event- all along it has been a political event
