    • Unfortunately Chuck while Collins wears a skirt that will never happen. Its justice a lawyers way not natural and proper justice. They are hitched to the adversarial mindset in a court rather than one of establishing the truth.
      Coronial inquiries are the opposite. They are about establishing the truth.
      So unless there is a body the truth is in the eyes of the lawyers and the Judge.

      Just as police prosecutors should be independent of the Police.
      And they shouldn’t be Prime Ministers. Wrong skillset.

    • Why does it take six months to wring a decision out of the Court of Appeal? Someone needs to put a rocket up those overpaid slugs.
      (Figuratively speaking, of course)

      The silver lining to that dark cloud is that young man might have learned to value his family more.

  1. Allegations of “hacks” are very serious. Ask Donald Trump. And Deputy Prime Minister, Winston Peters, went a step further, claiming he knew exactly what happened and it was definitely illegal.

    He didn’t. And it wasn’t.

    Hours later the police contradicted Peters’ by stating Nationals actions were “not unlawful”. The Treasury and Peters’ should be deeply embarrassed and apologetic.

    But, they won’t and aren’t.

  2. Today’s fun about your family.

    One person in 10 is mistaken about the identity of their father, genetic tests for hereditary illnesses are revealing, according to a UK National Health Service (NHS) chief.

    The era of genomic medicine is allowing doctors to screen rising numbers for preventative action against diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s. About 220,000 such tests are carried out by the NHS in England and Scotland each year.

    But Ian Cumming, head of Health Education England, the NHS training body, said hospitals were being left in an ethical quandary as they were uncovering some awkward family secrets.

    It is currently estimated that around 4 per cent of the population are unaware the man they call their father is not their true biological relative. Cumming told the Hay Festival that within a decade everyone who wanted to be genome tested could be.

    25% of you out there apparently had mothers that had a bit on the quiet.

    Now what about your kids then?

    • No, I don’t see it as a moral dilemma. He hasn’t hunted anything endangered and it is his property to dispose of as he chooses. Just as it is somebody else’s right to respond with their view on the matter and his to mock them.

      Personally, I’d love a giraffe rug if I had the room for it.

      Edit: Growing up in Africa, I don’t remember thinking of a Giraffe as a cow. It was on the other side of the “acceptable to eat” line. But, once you start travelling and see what they do with dogs in Asia, Capibara in South America, etc. you realise that different people see it differently. The only way a person from a Westernised country would look on it funny is because they’ve not seen anything outside the way they’ve been brought up, no?

  3. Beware folks, and get in quick, the Amazon tax cometh. Soon!

    The perfect tax, it will get you when you buy and it will get you when you pay the administration costs that far exceed the tax collected.

    • Yes it should only be on a reasonable sum eg $100
      Anything under that and it will cost more to collect.
      But the COLwould think that was great

        The change is to allow rip-off merchants to rip buyers off even more.

    • It will be interesting to see how many of them bother to comply.

      When Aus implemented their Amazon tax, Amazon only allowed Australians to buy from the Aussie version; thus killing the wide range of products. I don’t know if that’s changed or not.

      I can see many retailers either ignoring the mandate or simply culling the ability for NZers to buy. It might be wise to invest in a suitable VPN.

  4. There has not been much on the ex gang guy who got Home Detention and left off his fines for punching a noise control office many times.
    Where is the justice in that. Punishment and Deterrent.
    That is just a comedy! Him and his mates will be laughing all the way to the pub.

        A bit like an old-style traffic cop but without the personality.

        Probably why there has been so little made of this incident, if the case had’ve gone before a jury the ex-gang member would most likely have been carried out of court shoulder high.

  5. Re the heading photo
    I once saw a great video comparing the women of India and Pakistan, the Indian women were all beautiful, in dresses and saris, the Pakistani women were all dressed up as letter boxes.
    It was quite funny back then, but now its really serious.

  6. One day I got hired to be a warehouse greeter. I was doing a fine job until a women with her two kids came in.

    This women was very ugly, fat, and disgusting. She kept yelling at her two kids, swearing all over the place.

    I walked up to her and said, “excuse me mam, what lovely kids you have, are they twins?”

    She swore at me and said, “what are you fucking retarded, anyone with eyes can tell that they aren’t twins, one’s 7 and the other is 9!”

    I though about this for some seconds and responded, “I didn’t think they looked like twins but I just couldn’t believe someone would want to sleep with you twice.
    “That was my first and last day being a Warehouse greeter.

      • Didn’t Cindy also refer to Trump as “orange”?
        Cindy is so wrapped up in her warm socialist ideologue blanky it gives her carte blanche to act impolitely to those on the right side of politics. Wasting kindness on leaders of the world she disapproves of is hilarious in her tiny mind. More unintended consequences Cindy?

    • “Taylor planned to study law and economics, with hopes of returning to New Zealand after study to serve in Parliament.

      He dreamed of one day taking up the role as New Zealand Prime Minister.”

      Excellent results and I wish him well in his future pursuits. I do, however, cringe at this new trend of ‘professional’ politicians going straight from university into parliament without any real world experience. With Cindy and Robbo we see the pitfalls of this employment path. John Key was a highly successful leader and PM after years working in a tough business/banking environment, giving him a better world perspective and taught him life skills he could bring to his leadership.

  7. The COL is holding back our roads.
    Eg The Tauranga City council want to 4 lane 15th avenue.
    But as its also a major road, they want to et a government subsidy.
    But they can only get that if they put in bus lanes.
    So the road will still only be 2 lanes!
    In the meantime their huge new yellow buses drive round with tinted windows with no one in them.

    • I see the first image in the article where the acting Superintendent displays to media etc the type of “guns” that are being targeted. That weapon displayed is a long way away from a bolt action .22 with a tube magazine. This matter was not handled in an open and transparent manner.

    • “Nash said that 500 firearms had been seized during law enforcement incidents, including police responding to family harm callouts and finding firearms in the home.

      Weapons have also been confiscated during vehicle stops during high-profile or significant offending and during raids on organised crime and gang figures.”

      I wonder if this figure includes the guns seized during the controversial ‘police chats’ mentioned in some of the blog sites/youtube a few weeks back…?
      Will those guns seized from previously legal law abiding licensed owners be reimbursed through the buy back scheme or will there be a sneaky clause for any firearms “seized” during police operations…?

    • At least she admits she’s a “Leftie”.

      Johnson is delusional in her column. For example, using Julie Ann Genter’s cycling myth to hospital. This was nothing but virtual signalling since a.) it was stage managed and b.) she was using an e-bike yet people like Johnson keep making it out to be something it wasn’t.

      In a comment on her post, Genter said that her bike was an e-bike, meaning it was an electric-powered bicycle. She also noted that the trip to the hospital was “mostly downhill,” and that she “should have cycled more” in prior weeks to get the labor[sic] going.

    • Reminded me of this, which of course is just a tale as the SPCA wouldn’t be too keen on animals being buried alive, but a good story never the less.

      One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

      Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

      He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.

      A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

      As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.

      Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

      Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.

      The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.

      Each of our troubles is a steppingstone.

      We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up!

      Shake it off and take a step up.

  8. I wonder if these are the areas that voted for Billary?

    Stupidity reigns supreme at the All Hallows, Stuartholme, Loreto College and Stuartholme Catholic schools.

    Top schools including All Hallows, Stuartholme, Loreto College and Stuartholme School are leading a push towards a feminist interpretation of the Christian Bible.

    (They’re pushing for “gender-neutral” terms).

    I guess if you’re to torture the language enough, it will yield to the stupid.

    Apart from the fact that English grammar doesn’t allow for it, the original languages don’t either. El was the King or Father of the Canaanite Gods. YHWH eventually became synonymous with El. The non-Israelite Canaanites eventually did the same with Baal.

    (The Israelites were Canaanites).

    Apparently these schools can charge $40k per year. There must be a lot of rich gullible parents around that swallow that bile. But then, feminism was always the pursuit of the rich and idle.

  9. It’s always instructional to check out https://malesurvivor.nz/category/news/ from time to time & find out what the Catholic boy botherers have been caught out on recently. Today’s offerings were largely historical……a paedophile priest defrocked, savage beatings from a nun & news that the Catholic Church in Japan is preparing to investigate allegations of sexual abuse against minors by its priests.

    A quiet May for the ecclesiastical sickos.

  10. Watching a movie on Netflix called “The Circle”. The troubling agenda and hazards that the new generational insistence everyone post their every thought and life on the internet. Collection and storage of personal information and improving everyone. Full of leftie speak “society and the individual are the same”. Very group think. Tom Hanks and Emma Watson.
    Reminds me of the religion Scientology.

    • I’ve long wondered where the compunction people have for sharing their lives, thoughts & toilet habits openly on social media will end up. Already there are instances of job applicants being forced by interviewers to give access to their Facebook & Twitter pages.

      If you forced the average person to reveal their inner thoughts & actions they would be horrified & rebel in the streets. Give the same idiots a smartphone & they’ll do it willingly.
