Have Your Say





  1. you old farts sleep in?
    oh well ill start the day with some bad and slightly offensive jokes.

    whats the difference between a fridge and a butthole?
    the fridge dosent fart when you pull the meat out.

    what do you call 2 transgender midgets having sex?

    whats the difference between a cock and a joke?
    viking cant take a joke 🙂



    • There are people who are funny and have funny jokes.
      Then, there are hairy arsed red heads with whiskers that have no idea what a joke is.
      Those people are essentially abusive of others, trying to make others laugh at their pathetic efforts and crudeness.



  2. I see the Kawerau District Council have found that the biggest impediment to Council progress is this Coalition Government and the policies and reforms this Government will introduce. Well so says a Report written by their CEO.

    Odd, because many other Councils don’t think or feel this way and I just have to look at our local Ruapehu District Council who are positive, have implemented very low Rate increases and are moving forward, positively with the current and impeding Government reforms.

    But then we have to look at who wrote this report, none other than its’ newly minted CEO, one Morgan Godfrey.

    Now who is Mr Godfrey, A former Trade Unionist, Labour Party Member, former Parliamentary Staffer for Labour MP, Parekura Horomia, former Law Lecturer at Victoria University and author of many hit pieces in many publications on previous National Governments.

    So the author is hardly in impartial person, but one with a political axe to grind and is using his position as a biased CEO, to not only influence the Kawarau District Council, but is pushing his own political agenda. I hope the Kawerau District Council are awake to Mr Godfrey’s motives, but I doubt it.




  3. https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/06/12/marokopa-police-helicopter-combing-area-after-80k-info-reward/

    Anyone else think this is beyond getting weird?

    How many communities could do with some attention from Eagle to curb spates of vehicle thefts and home burglaries?
    Yet, here’s one bloke who has broken no law except failing to appear on trumped up charges attracting a reward pot and a chopper search.
    Pity cops don’t have these resources to chuck at actual criminals.



  4. Each morning I receive an Email from the Press with about 6 of their mail stories, Most of it is subscriber content only but one gets the gist of it – attacking the current Government. Funnily enough that didn’t use to happen last year until November.
    The so called cartoon is simply an all out derogatory attack on the Government every day. As a former avid cover to cover reader – former is the word.
    Today there is an article “Government has an ethical responsibility to fulfil promise”
    It is about cancer treatment and it includes – “Jack McDonald: “Māori have higher exposure to cancer risk factors and are more likely than non-Māori to be diagnosed with all the common cancers…”
    Now I never knew this and well……….”Jack McDonald is a campaigner and political commentator who has worked for Te Pāti Māori and the Green Party.
    Funnily enough it does not state his medical qualifications and studies showing those “facts”

    Bit like the fat fuck Robinson telling pregnant ladies it was quite safe for them to be vaccinated.



  5. It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and money system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.
    – Henry Ford

    Government launches parliamentary inquiry into banking sector competition?

    Brain drain: Record numbers of New Zealand citizens leave the country.



    • Fear not.
      “… bloated governments and big corporations….” depend on the little people. Without the people, there can be no bloated governments or big corporations.

      At the moment, the future little people are becoming fewer in number. (Who can afford children?)

      Let market forces, Mother Nature, and the Invisible Hand do their work. I wonder what the new equilibrium will be like? I won’t live long enough to see it, but my children will.

      You can be very sure that, despite calling for ‘…fake meat and other alternative proteins in a coordinated effort to change consumers’ behaviour’, Schwab et al will make VERY sure that they (And ONLY they) have only the very best of everything (Especially the food) , since they are, after all, members of the WEF and consequently IMPORTANT people and should be rewarded accordingly.

      It’s nothing new…



  6. Can anybody here remember the time when the Greens started an investigation into Darleen Tana? Well apparently it’s ongoing, with poor old Darleen not at work but on full pay. This has got to be some sort of record piss-take. The accusations involve migrant exploitation. Why are the Greens “investigating” their own?



  7. I didn’t see this coming. From https://www.msn.com/en-nz/news/other/speed-limit-reductions-to-be-reversed-govt-seeks-feedback-on-120km-h-limits/ar-BB1o7jig

    # “The coalition Government is reversing the speed limit reductions implemented over the past four years under the previous Government, calling them “depressing” and “based on nanny state ideology”.”

    # “The reversals will be made by July 1 and require speed limits that have been reduced since January 1, 2020 to be reversed on local streets, arterial roads, and state highways.”

    # “The reversals will be made by July 1 and require speed limits that have been reduced since January 1, 2020 to be reversed on local streets, arterial roads, and state highways.”

    The 30 kph restriction outside schools during times when kids are arriving/leaving will remain which I consider fair enough.

    This will piss off the knowalls & nannies everywhere. Be prepared for crescendos of “will no-one think of the children”.



    • are the fancy 200k dunnies/shack at glenavy to be paid for by the waimo council too or is that outve your area?

      all councils are outve control with spending other ppls money… and spending it on dumb shit.



      • https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/06/13/the-regions-hit-with-the-sharpest-rates-hike/
        The average homeowner will be hit by a rates hike of about 16%, but some face rises over 20%.

        West Coast Regional Council ratepayers will swallow one of the biggest increases with a proposed rise of 27%. It has one of the smallest pools of ratepayers, so fewer households to draw funds from.

        Other big jumps include Hastings District Council, which is considering a rates increase of around 25%.

        Close behind, Napier, Gore, Clutha, Buller, and Central Hawke’s Bay district councils are mulling increases in the 19-24% range.

        Some of the figures are still being finalised as councils consider feedback from locals. Canterbury’s regional council pulled back its proposed average rates rise from 24.2% to 17.9% after listening to residents.

        Of the biggest cities, Wellingtonians are looking at about 17%, while 16.5% is proposed for Hamilton.



  8. TEOTWAWKI – And I feel fine.

    (TEOTWAWKI is an acronym for “The End of the World as We Know It”)

    On the 6th of June 1974, Prince Fahd ibn Abdel Aziz and US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger were sitting down to change the world and create an empire.
    Fifty years later, the US has $34 trillion in public debt, not to mention the untold trillions in global private debt (namely the Eurodollar) denominated in dollars and tied intricately to US control over energy and the means to pay for it.
    And it all ended on Monday.




  9. As Everything Organized At The ‘Giant’ Scale Steams Towards Failure, Big Govt, Companies & Medicine, Expect Widespread Crises To Intensify With Chronic Illness & Widespread Death.

    Forgive me for reiterating a basic principle driving this moment in history: everything organized at the gigantic scale is steaming toward failure: big governments, giant companies, the huge capital investment firms, global shipping, energy production, chain retailing, mass motoring, big electricity, big medicine, big education, big anything. They are all fixing to fail while our politicians and economists make plans based on consolidating them into one super-gigantic mega-system that will run flawlessly on computer tech magic.




  10. Capturing, trying, and punishing today’s Nazis is a necessary step to prevent a repetition of this evil in the future.

    The mistakes of the Nuremberg of the past generated the Nazism of today. And it is up to the Russians, again, to defeat and punish the Nazis. Now the task seems even clearer. Westerners are no longer disguised as “allies”. The US and Europe openly position themselves as supporters and promoters of fascism. Moscow must act decisively to dismantle the entire international network of support for Nazism, with Ukraine being just the first step towards a new and fairer Nuremberg.




  11. Speed limits of 120km/h proposed as Government looks to scrap other reductions

    The coalition is promising to reverse Labour’s blanket speed limit reductions by July 2025.

    The draft speed limit rule will impose a speed limit of 110km/h on new and existing roads of national significance if they are built to a high standard.

    Lower speed limits could stay on rural state highways if the Transport Agency could demonstrate public support for them, Transport Minister Simeon Brown said.

    “The previous government’s untargeted approach slowed Kiwis and the economy down, rather than targeting high crash areas of the network,” Brown said.
