    ‘It’s seriously needed’ – NZ First pledge expansion of free dental care
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/its-seriously-needed-nz-first-pledge-expansion-free-dental-care?auto=6196727088001

    NZ First wants to then provide means-tested free dental care to everyone under 26, parents and caregivers, pregnant women and people aged 65 and older – “then to everyone else”.

    “It’s seriously bad,” leader Winston Peters said of the state of accessibility to dental care in NZ. “It’s seriously needed.”

    “It is affordable if it’s on a means-tested basis.”

    It was estimated by NZ First to cost $515 million each year.

    • Generous to describe it as a policy. More a bribe, yet another in the lead up to the election. The most blatant being the $10M for Pacifica Churches”. I am not OK with being forced to pay tax. I am not even close to OK about paying tax so the government can hand $10M over to a group of churches of a single ethnic group in the week preceding the election.

      Church needs to be separate from the State and State handouts. That particularly should apply in the immediate pre election period.

  3. NZ Election 2020: Jacinda Ardern slams Paul Goldsmith’s ‘ridiculous and desperate’ claim of $10bn gap in Labour’s financial plan
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/10/nz-election-2020-jacinda-ardern-slams-paul-goldsmith-s-ridiculous-and-desperate-claim-of-10bn-gap-in-labour-s-financial-plan.html

    Goldsmith, National’s finance spokesperson, has pointed out that Labour’s fiscal plan hasn’t included costings or funding for two expensive election promises, pumped hydro and light rail from Auckland CBD to the airport.

    “Pumped hydro has estimates starting at $4 billion. Yet there is no mention of it in Labour’s pamphlet. Labour can’t have a policy targeting 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2030 without a clear plan to get there and how it will be paid for,” Goldsmith said.

    “Labour’s also promising to reboot its failed light rail project, which has been estimated to cost at least $6 billion… This is at least $10 billion worth of projects that will have to be funded but Labour hasn’t included in its numbers.”

    • Wonder if you were listening to talkback early this am Chuck.
      The calls attacking Trump were the worst I have heard.Some stupid woman saying he should drink disinfectant and others gleeful about his situation.
      There was pushback from some good callers and I think the host copped a heap of texts supportive of Trumpy.

        • The Globalist propaganda arm – the MSM is highly effective.
          Sad but true.

          Yesterday, Friday I had a ‘First Friday ‘ business lunch and there is real fear of Covid the sickness, but not Covid the Globalist tool for reset.
          Business people are now like little children waiting for permission to do the next thing.
          That kills creativity and innovation.

          Then I went to golf and in drinks after I was surprised at the level of Covid fear – remember:- 7 months of constant fearmongering and little else.
          The media filth are a key part of the Fear Equation .

          Then at a daylight saving BBQ- it was a bit cool by then- most surprised at the fear factor and the desire to ‘follow the rules’ despite no-one being able to identify anyone, somebody, they know who has covid.
          But how many people do you know last year who had the flu…and did not need a test to establish that?

          Basically because I have not watched TV in the last six months (why bother) I did not know what was going on!! Ok Then!

          It saddens me that Kiwis are not the bright innovative bunch that they think they are .
          I mean hell, Fonterra still puts milk powder in brown paper bags and exports it like the co-ops did 50 years ago.
          The creativity theory is a c-myth.

          MSM is the propaganda arm of the Globalists and they actually do a good job of a bad actor.

          Sorry, cant see much upside.
          People are simply too lazy to do their own research so are majorly misinformed.
          I suspect the globby warming stuff was a test run to see how gullible people are.
          Tests results in: people are as gullible as all hell.

          Executive summary.
          We’re fucked and the media play their role in fucking us up.

          • Sorry to hear that howitis. I was hoping the Auckland lockdown would get people up in arms and start to think it through. I have heard of older people who are still scared but to hear working business people are in the same boat is actually quite frightening.
            No wonder Chris Trotter was saying in the article we discussed yesterday that a wind up of the fear factor maybe needed to ensure a easy Labour win.

  6. With Trump getting the Chinese flu, what are the chances of Cindy announcing the very same thing. I ask this because the poll numbers of all world leaders, who have gotten the Chinese flu, have gone up.
    What better way to get the public sympathy than to make an announcement that she has it.

    • Something is in the pipeline

      Labour need a hail Mary to save them, their high was to do with March 15. Cindy missed out on her annual celebration of her defining political moment because of Covid. The sentencing was also a bit of a damp squib because it got caught up in the “OMFG Cindy can’t even isolate and isolated country” quarantine fuck-up.

      The left are seeing how there is a twitching corpse of life in “REEEEEEEEE! White Supremacists” after the Chris Wallace debate with Trump this week. You can bet that there is going to be an attempt to bring attention back to Tarrant before the election.

      The current degenerate socialist left is nothing if not predictable.

      • Jeepers.
        I went across to the FruityFarrar Bog as run by the beady-eyed, effeminate, hard left Globalist for the first time in a while.
        What a bog alright.
        Drain that bog!

        Two articles of hate alone yesterday.
        Glee at Trump’s Covid diagnosis and a hit on ‘The Proud Boys’ because they support Trump.

        Fruity clearly does not believe in democracy or two sides presenting a view.
        On that matter he is a total leftard.
        As his contributors point out :- BLM- Burning Looting, Murder – does the damage, not the outfit that Herr Farrar would like to ban- all because they have a Different POV from the proud, white male-hating wee NINO Fruit.

        Kiwibog was once a National Party home but given the LSD flashbacks that Farrar seems to regularly have the people stay there but counter his psychotic ramblings.

        Thanks for the heads up Viking.
        It shows what a class act our Editor and Holy man has done with YSB.
        A valuable service for those of us that can still see the horizon.

        PS. Does Farrar need some medical attention- in the top three inches?

          • I wonder who Judith is using as her polling company? Surely not that old has been one above. Someone who visits there regularly should ask who does Farrah thinks will win the next election. Republicans and Trump, or Biden and the dems. Cindy and Liarbour, or National and Judith.
            No doubt going on his previous form, he will get it wrong in both examples.

            • Key was a Globalist and had strong ties offshore.

              These powers were doing the numbers work for him and I suspect he used Farrar as the local ‘Front’ to make it look local.
              Once Key had done his job – or lack thereof depending on how one views it – he was off quick smart.
              Trump’s election in Nov 2016 was an indication of pushback against the globalists.

              Key’s legacy is : No great South Sea banking system; no RMA reform; Maori’s inside the tent; the mess of the one-off Auckland City merger; Labour held councils up and down the country- moving further across to Green; an open faucet on immigration; no house building to match that large impact; An additional $160 Billion in housing mortgage to bankers with no net new housing/new dwellings to represent it. The rest was treading water for 8 years.
              The only good thing was getting Christchurch back on its feet.

              Farrar pretended the mojo was there (and his own ) but he was a day late and a 100 polls short .
              Fruity is a sad has- been pretender who really does not understand the USA and USA politics.
              I suspect he just cribs off Five Thirty Eight and tries to fake it till he makes it .

          • Sadly Sooty I suspect that is a reflection of the Notional/Vatican party today.

            Ceteris Paribus Collins will be cast aside in latter 2021 and another god botherer – Luxon, as signaled- will take over this facile outfit.
            There are too many people with knives out for Collins to withstand a loss.
            This is notwithstanding the hard words I used when she was elected Leader.

            Collins has campaigned extremely well and full credit to her but the ‘machine’ behind her is a shadow of what is was before Bolger sowed the seeds of decline.
            Until Pres Goodfellow is gone the decline will continue.

            I have been thinking a bit more about where KB has gone in the last 18 months. Obviously the moderation stuffed it up but I think even more the underlying tone of many of the comments are now just so negative.
            On here we all make a comments against some issues but I think most comments reflect a reasonable happy, positive person behind them. I do not get that feeling from KB, on the fewer and fewer occasions I go there to read the latest.

        And not only DPF personally; the moderators as well. I positted recently the evident fact-based possibility that, by ridiculing The President and his supporters (most recently the Proud Boys), DPF was ipso facto supporting Antifa, BLM and the Dems, and suggesed that DPF was no longer the ‘Free speech’ champion that he likes to portray himself as being.

        The ‘Duty mod’ removed it sans comment, an action which is becoming increasingly common as the mods weild more and more control ( aka ‘Censorship’) on that site, evidently with the owner’s complete apprroval.

        As a result ‘Truth’ and reasoned discourse are becoming rare and exotic flowers on Kiwiblog, and Sic Transit gloria etc. would seem to be appropriate sentiments.

  10. When rumors of a dangerous flu emerged from Wuhan, China, last December, the Taiwanese reacted fast. Carrying the memory of the 2003 SARS epidemic, they rushed to buy face masks, threatening to deplete local supplies. In the city of Tainan, an engineer named Howard Wu created a fix: a mapping system to track available masks, using Google GPS and Places API. The platform was an immediate hit. Tang reached out to Wu and secured funding from Google to support and extend the project, which eventually inspired a similar system in South Korea. By spring, the Taiwanese government was managing the supply and distribution of cheap N95-type masks through neighborhood pharmacies. All 24 million residents of Taiwan could buy a certain number per week, at any pharmacy, based on their national health insurance card. Long lines got shorter, and people went about social distancing with confidence. The success of this model — Taiwan has had fewer than 500 total cases and just seven deaths — was what attracted the Dos Monos rappers to Tang.

    • Thanks Viking , a really interesting read. I like the way she thinks.

      Here is another about Taiwan –an interview with their deputy PM on how and why Taiwan reacted to Covid the way they did and why they have been so successful.

      https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/taiwans-vice-president-chen-chien-jen-countrys-fight-covid-19/

      I sent this to Simon Bridges in mid April suggesting that National very quietly set up plan to take to the electorate to show National were thinking and planning ahead for the next pandemic, which bound to happen. I think Bridges took notice because Nick Smith threw a hissy fit a week or so later saying his committee was in charge of policy but Bridges had set up a “covid group”.
      I do not know if it went any further –I hope so.

  11. Why is is that socialists are so lacking in self-awareness, they are such broken human beings

    Mandy Hagar (yes the sister to the hate filled, lying weasel Nicky) has these lovely words on her Twitter account “..trying to spread love and compassion, one book at a time..”

    Aww isn’t that nice, she must be such a “kind” person. I bet she never has a bad word to say against anybody – especially if she doesn’t agree with them.

    So it must have been her rat-faced brother who stole kind, loving, compassionate sister’s Twitter account and posted this gem about David Seymour’s correct analysis that the plastic bag ban was just virtue-signalling.

    “Fuck off Mandy, you dark-hearted, hate-filled totalitarian monster, your wish to censor legitimate political debate is a far bigger threat to your kids future than David Seymour ever could be.”

    There, I feel overwhelmed that I too have now had a chance to taste from the same cup of love and compassion as Mandy Hagar – boy oh boy I feel full to the brim after that virtue-signal, although that cloak of sanctimony is making it a bit hot (or is just the fact that like Hagar the horribless, I just moved a few paces closer to hell.

JT is pretending to be further left than the Greens electioneering for the benefit of “my people”. He called David Seymour greedy and privileged on the recent debate – because David is white presumably.

          The other three leaders on the debate were all maori leaders of their political parties – and that is without their need for special maori electorate seats.

  15. Michale Dowling with the COLFO voting guide, succinct and to the point:

    Fair and Reasonable
    Dear Alice,

    Last night we held our National Firearms Debate in Masterton. As we had hoped, was a mix of tough questions, debate, fun. If you didn’t watch it live, you can replay it via our Facebook, and YouTube sites.

    And today we are releasing our How to Vote Guide:
    We’ve prepared a detailed table of the political parties’ firearms policies here.

    We’ve also summarised our advice below.

    Party Vote

    This election, COLFO urges voters who want to protect or affect shooting sports rights, to be bluntly realistic with their party votes. Don’t vote for any party that has been hostile to our rights. Do vote for parties that have shown they stand with us. How they’ve voted in Parliament is critical. What they say they intend for the future is less relevant.

    But something else is just as important. Will your vote put someone or keep someone in Parliament? If not, that vote is wasted. Completely. It may actually help hostile parties. If your preferred party is not reasonably sure to get over 5% of the party votes, don’t vote for it. They will not be in Parliament. Your vote will be useless.

    For this election, it looks as if only ACT and National will be in Parliament, of the parties who respect our rights. Protest votes are hardly ever influential. In this election, do not throw your vote away.

    Constituency or Electorate Vote?

    It does not matter much for shooting sports rights which candidate gets your electorate or constituency member vote. Of course we’d hope that you did not support individuals who have been hostile. But for this election no constituency MP vote is likely to make the slightest difference to which party forms the government. And who governs is what matters above all, this time around.

    You could use your electorate vote to say ‘thank you’ to candidates who have shown their respect for our rights. It will not affect which parties rule.

    How not to vote

    Do not give your party vote to the Greens or Labour. It would strengthen them.

    They’ve been painting licenced firearms owners as the real villains. A Labour-Green Government unhampered by NZ First could make the existing situation far worse.

    A vote for NZ First is likely to be pointless now, even if you think they kept a brake on the worst that Labour and the Greens wanted to do to us. That is not a judgment on their policies. Simply that there appears to be no prospect of them making the 5% MMP threshold for returning to Parliament.

    Giving your vote to any party unlikely to be in Parliament just means it is shared among the parties who are in Parliament, in rough proportions according to their party voting success. In short, a vote for a party unlikely to be in Parliament may mean in effect that most of your vote is shared among Labour and the Greens, if they get the most votes. At the moment it appears that only ACT, National, the Greens and Labour are likely to be in Parliament.

    It is conceivable that the Maori Party will be there, off the back of success in a Maori Electorate. From our experience of trying to interest Maori electorate MPs in the risks of bad firearms law on Maori, there is no point wasting your party vote on the Maori Party, if you are concerned about good law in this area.

    Unhappily we also have to caution you when considering a vote for New Conservative, despite them having firearms policy we can applaud. COLFO realises that this advice will be hurtful to some. We wish we could reward the New Conservative party policy, but a ‘reward” vote that does not affect who is in Parliament is not a sensible vote. The brutal reality of the MMP 5% threshold means that for this election a shooting sports vote for New Conservative will be useless unless they get 5%. That looks unlikely on current polling.

    Our role to inform LFOs
    COLFO is politically non-aligned. That means we are not members of, or beholden to any political party. But nor can we be politically neutral. We have to urge you to vote for the parties that will have practical power in Parliament to value, protect and advance the rights and interests of our members and supporters.

    COLFO hopes that we will be able to encourage voting support for more parties in the next election.

    But we can’t wish success for political parties and politicians who are hostile to our rights and interests. And part of our role is to make sure you know which party is in which category.

    That does not mean we refuse to engage with hostile parties. We will help them understand unintended consequences to minimise the damage they might do. But for an organisation like COLFO, set up to guard legislated rights, election time is when we need to steer votes to where they will do most good, and avoid most bad.

    So our voting guide has to be ruthlessly realistic. At each election, COLFO will not beat about the bush. We will tell you how we think you can have the most influence with your vote. Election time is the only time most of us get to tell politicians what to do, decide who will exercise power over us, and how they treat us.

    If you want to understand more about the individual firearm policies of every party contesting this election see our how to vote guide by clicking here.

    Repeated studies show that most New Zealanders still struggle to understand the details of how MMP works. If your interested, there is a good summary on our website.

    So let’s stick together this election, and make sure the voice of licenced firearms owners is heard.

    Thank you for your support,

    Michael Dowling
    Chairman
    Council of Licenced Firearms Owners

    • ……”a shooting sports vote for New Conservative will be useless unless they get 5%. That looks unlikely on current polling.”……

      At least the COLFO live in the real world. A vote for the religious nuts may be tempting because of the “add ons” to their manifesto which they hoped might push their Trojan horse over the line. It serves as a timely reminder that the NZ Conservatives don’t give a flying fuck for shooters’ rights, landowners’ rights or 90% of their own policies. They’re there to flesh out their core desire which is to deliver a 1950’s version of NZ to God.

      If you wish to see out your days on your knees praying to something that doesn’t exist then ticking the “New Conservative” box on your voting paper should do the trick.

    If you are not sure, I wold advise to hold of till the last day and then vote. You can bet your balls that labour will stuff it up between now and then, guaranteed!

Or can’t be bothered getting out of bed for anything less than Joseph Parkers next fight in Manakau So to cater for the feckless and fucking lazy the voting period is now 2 weeks long because even the most lazy Maori will visit the store for piss and fags in that time, and maybe even vote, if they can be fucked registering

  20. A near majority of Jews dominated the top ten to twenty leaders of the Russian Bolshevik Party’s first twenty years and the Soviet Union’s secret police was “one of the most Jewish” of all of its institutions.

    During the Cold War, Jews, mostly from Eastern Europe, accounted for 40–50% of the American Communist Party’s membership, and counter to the denial of American Jewish publicists, Jews played a “disproportionately important role” in Soviet and world Communism until the early 1950s.

    • “…What amazes me about Rabbi Harry Waton, is the combination of intellectual brilliance with blinkering. He identifies with the pre-Stalin Jewish Bolsheviks yet, despite the ideological universalism he proclaims, ignores and denies the cruelty and totalitarianism of the system they created.”

      Brilliance with blinkering.

      “An elephant is like a piece of rope!”, one blind man said…
      The parable of the blind men and an elephant is a story of a group of blind men who have never come across an elephant before and who learn and conceptualize what the elephant is like by touching it. Each blind man feels a different part of the elephant’s body, but only one part, such as the side or the tusk. They then describe the elephant based on their limited experience and their descriptions of the elephant are different from each other. In some versions, they come to suspect that the other person is dishonest and they come to blows. The moral of the parable is that humans have a tendency to claim absolute truth based on their limited, subjective experience as they ignore other people’s limited, subjective experiences which may be equally true.” Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_men_and_an_elephant

      Rabbi Waton was a blind man. Communism was the elephant in the room.

          I get the feeling he has little worldy experience, having been born into and raised in a sheltered community, with little to no understanding of how the world works or with much empathy to the ways of the “other” i.e., people outside of his group.

    Nasska – most disappointed to see our taxes going to church building. Even more disappointing that in the current climate I see little point in objecting to it. It seems the current mood is that nothing should be off limits for Labour Party largess (bribery).

  28. Canterbury District Health Board ‘stunned’ by $180 million cash injection from government

    Clinicians and doctors at Canterbury District Health Board are stunned by the Government’s deficit-matching cash injection, but say it leaves many problems unresolved.

    Health Minister Chris Hipkins on Thursday met with management and clinical leaders to discuss their dire financial situation, at the same time announcing a $180 million equity injection.
