  1. Yes well how appropriate.

    Funding delay forces Canterbury council to ditch dangerous road upgrades

    Three major Canterbury roading projects are being scrapped because of a lack of government funding, triggering fears delays to safety upgrades could put lives at risk.

    Selwyn District Council gave the projects the green light after the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) indicated it would fund them to the tune of $5.6 million.

    But that money has not come to fruition, meaning the work – including safety upgrades to one of the area’s most dangerous intersections – has to be pulled.
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/113298259/funding-delay-forces-canterbury-council-to-ditch-dangerous-road-upgrades

    So the fat little controllers aka as Robertson and Genter along with their delusional mate Twyford are already reneging on the money to make our roads safer.

    When will they resign?
    How many dead people does it take or will they just slow New Zealand to walking pace to keep their bicycles safe?

    • Good roads do not make you safe. You must not have been listening when they made cycles and slower traffic speeds a priority. As Angry Little said” what’s a little collateral damage” in a few more dead at these intersections

      • Don’t forget Genter calling us “car fascists” dont they just love their fellow Kiwis, i can understand Angry hating us after all he was a total failure until Jacinda rolled that stone on the 3rd day and walked from the cave into our lives but what have we ever to to Genter to make her hate us like she obviously does, maybe it’s a prerequisite to joining the Green Taliban they are a hateful bunch of turds at the best of times

      • Yes well more from Galloping Genter today. According to her lies more people want slower speeds on the roads.. I kid you not.
        ‘Huge majority’ of NZers would prefer lower speeds on some roads – Genter

        Research shows the majority of New Zealanders would be “much more comfortable” driving at slower speeds on some roads, Associate Transport Minster Julie Anne Genter says.

        A Transport Agency (NZTA) tool shows 87 percent of speed limits on New Zealand roads are higher than is safe.

        An agency risk assessment tool, Mega Maps, suggests only 5 percent of the open road should have the current 100km/h speed limit. In most cases a speed of 60-80 km/h should apply, and in most urban areas 30-40 km/h would be appropriate.

        Taupō mayor David Trewavas said yesterday he would welcome speed limits being dropped – there’s been some shocking multiple-fatality crashes in the region this year – but the National Party says a blanket lowering of the speed limit would put the brakes on the economy.

        https://www.newsie.co.nz/news/152071-lsquohuge-majorityrsquo-of-nzers-would-prefer-lower-speeds-on-some-roads-genter.html?fbclid=IwAR3zWZiQ14c-eRTkFh3BrdcdGtImSXXclQRHKLZUxgEoQUUS3FmxRm33kRQ

        From a govt. that has topped measuring most things we now have some research that flies in the face of reality and common sense. The place is run by fucking idiots.

        “And would be quite happy to not be under pressure to drive at 100km/h on a road where clearly that is not a safe and appropriate speed.”
        Well no one has to drive at that speed. It’s considered option on the part of the driver.

    • Very challenging to have confidence in NZTA, Minister or Associate Minister.

      That fuel tax is taken from road users to fund non road matters such as Kiwi rail and public transport is a serious failure of integrity. The speed limit reduction proposals are a large indicator of ineptitude and failure of common sense.

      That they failed to follow through an undertaking to fund a road project shows they cannot be trusted to perform and meet obligations. The “social license “ for NZTA to operate must surely be at risk as is the transport portfolios for both Minister Twyford and Associate Minister Genter.

        Have you been asleep for the past nineteen months? The CoL exemplifies running roughshod over any form of integrity. I don’t believe we’ve ever had a worse government in NZ…and they’re riding high in the polls, so they’re not going to change tact.

    • NZTA is a failed organisation. It is the Venezuela of the state service. Up and down the country their roading projects are a disaster, falling behind all their milestones. Communities are up in arms as they find that NZTA is lying to them or worse ducking and diving trying to avoid telling them what’s going on. Their disastrous CE was fired stood down before Xmas, then three very senior board members all walked away at the end of January. The Chair of the board has just resigned and they’ve had to shoehorn in a couple of ultra-short term board appointments (just a few months duration) just so that the NZTA board has a quorum under their legislation!

      Of course, this utter chaos is no surprise when you see who is Minister of Transport (Phil Twyford).

      But at the end of the day with a temp Chair, a temp CE and a cobbled together board. experienced staff leaving and institutional knowledge hemorrhaging you have to be worried about the probity and accuracy of anything that is coming out of NZTA at the moment.

      And no surprise, of course the Ministry of Transport review of NZTA (which was supposed to be completed by March this year) has been delayed. The delay can only have been because there was nothing bad found at all …. #SARC

      I predict a Royal Commission is going to be needed sometime in the future to unravel how utterly and royally fucked up NZTA is.

      I’ve got a great way to reduce the road-toll – how about we bulldoze every single road or track in the country, outlaw all forms of vehicular transport and railroad a compulsory car buy-back scheme through Parliament – you know, for the feelz!

  2. Unoccupied Christchurch quake home wrangle gets ministerial intervention.

    Housing Minister Phil Twyford has stepped in to break a bureaucratic impasse preventing empty Christchurch homes being used for social housing.

    Seventeen temporary houses in Linwood Park are vacant as more than 800 people in the city wait for a home – up from 340 in 2016 – and the Government spends hundreds of thousands of dollars each quarter on emergency grants to house people in motels.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/113294316/unoccupied-christchurch-quake-home-wrangle-gets-ministerial-intervention

    Anyone with the time to OIA Twyford and find out how long ago he knew of these houses and why he didn’t act sooner.
    Here’s a guess. He knew about them some time ago and did shit all till it hit the paper.

      • I nsuspect that Twyford suffers from a mental condition that means he cannot remember last week. He simply appears to have no recollection of what he was going to do and at best all he can do is repeat the same phrases over and over. Bet you a pound to a pinch of gost shit he had a religious upbringing and is totally brain gazumped.

  5. Thank the Lord.

    Veteran politician, activist and writer Sue Kedgley will bid farewell to her role with the Greater Wellington Regional Council this year and stand down from re-election.

    “I feel I’ve done my bit,” said Kedgley, who believed it was time to bring new blood onto the council.

    She said the time for millennials had come and their voices were needed around the table in politics.

    Kedgley, 71, has worked in politics for the past 26 years, including 12 years as an MP for the Green Party and as a regional councillor since 2013.

    • I heard a teacher of mature years on national radio saying he did not support the strike action as it was a problem for parents. Got the impression he was not alone with that view. He was not happy about the Unions approach.

      Could be the members unrest made it a prudent action for the Union to ease of. I suspect that is the reason for holding strike action rather than the force of Minister Hipkins argument.

  8. Dairy farmers are under threat of not having their milk collected by Fonterra after the implementation of new laws that allows the dairy giant to reject milk where farmers refuse to implement new climate change rules.

    And this from reddit:
    ” One of the eye-catching provisions is that Fonterra will be required to supply Goodman Fielder +40% more milk at cost price (+10c/L higher than last year) so that it can compete more aggressively with Fonterra. This is a controversial decision as Goodman Fielder is half owned by the giant Singaporean conglomerate Wilmar International, the very same company responsible for the huge growth of the palm oil industry. That industry is directly responsible for huge clearings of rain-forest in Indonesia and Malaysia with controversial consequences. Supporting them with regulated supply priority over local alternatives is a curious signal to say the least. Beating up on dairy farmers for environmental reasons, and then turning around and giving cheap regulated access to a foreign company with links to environmental despoliation seem odd positions for any New Zealand government.”

  9. The thing that strikes me is that they keep referring to ‘unpopular’ speech. But it isn’t just unpopular speech, it is popular speech, if ‘all’ who were national voters at the last election have similar views, for example, then who is to say that it is unpopular?

    The vote is important because it will show whether people can actually change their tribal allegiances when the dopey bastards they voted for let them down.

    Perhaps that is why I feel so strongly about it losing it, there will be some today, who have never spoken out against anything much, so they might not notice its loss until it is gone.

  22. Susan Edmunds is a moron.
    Edmunds has written an article in Stuff that is moronic.
    Hence, it is fair to call her a moron.
    These media people call other people all sorts of names eg Lauren Southern a ‘right winger’ when Southern is largely an investigative journalist who gets out from behind a keyboard and , well, I can’t put it more simply, investigates.
    Yeah, I know, right!

    Edmunds has written this:-

    some moronic extracts.
    Surgeon General’s warning (nah, it’s my warning, that just sounded important!)

    Extract:
    “The first $14,000 you earn is taxed at 10.5 per cent, then the next bit at 17.5 per cent and so on. Only the bit you earn over $70,000 is taxed at 33 per cent.
    This means someone earning $75,000 pays $15,670 a year in tax.
    The thing with marginal tax rates, though, is that when you get near a higher tax bracket, >> there’s not a lot of incentive to move up <>As seen in: Stuff.co.nz, Sydney Morning Herald, New Zealand Herald, Business Insider Australia, Illawarra Mercury, Shoalhaven & Nowra News, Narooma News, Bay Post / Moruya Examiner, Kiama Independent, The Advertiser Lake Times

    Edmunds has a book coming out in September called
    ‘Mummy Needs a Break’
    https://www.wheelers.co.nz/books/9780008316099-mummy-needs-a-break/?author=Edmunds%2C+Susan
    It sounds like it as written as a farce.
    There is no change in her writing style then!

    The next section is a whinge that if you get off your butt and get a pay rise you could lose WFF and other entitlements.
    So sad.
    Then there is more erroneous crap not worth reading.
    The comments section pulls her up on this. It won’t last long.

    I suspect when Edmunds was born she was held by the ankle and dipped in pure communism.
    The only way capitalism and common sense could get through now is via her ankle.
    Feel the heel.

    Ok. I laid it on a bit thick but hey these are the morons that tell us that globby warming is settled science and there is no room for another viewpoint.
    …then they present ‘Stuff’ that is erroneous gobbledegook (is that racist, I’ll text Golriz ?)

    If you are going to say something is ‘beyond reproach’ then it helps if you have credibility across the board so the punter does not have to try to work out what is correct and what is moronic crap.

    • This comment had a large part chopped out of the middle

      The essential part was

      Well, how to dissect this?
      She has no idea. This is all mixed up.
      Pure tax on $75,000 is $15,670 but also there is $1,088 in ACC making it $16,758 minimum deduction.
      There is no mention of this.
      There is no clarification that there may be a deduction for student loans , Kiwisaver, or child support.
      This should at least be mentioned as some people might be bailing up their employer for over-deduction.
      Now the example she gives of $69,000 being $1044.63 per week net has Income tax plus ACC deducted.
      Being a moron she won’t understand that she has mixed this up.

      Adding to her esteemed ??? scribbling, she implies you should not get a pay rise because you only get to keep 67% of this.
      I thought these commies wanted Rich Pricks to pay through the nose!
      For approx $60 per week pay rise you get to keep $40. This is bad to a commie.
      It perhaps should all go to the Glorious Party to help Comrade cousies on the couch.
      Now let’s all sing ‘the Red Flag’
      Little does she know that 35 years ago you PAID 66% marginal income tax in the top bracket.
      You still got to keep 34%.

      then ..
      Now if it is so bad to get a pay rise, perhaps she could ask the Govt to form a Working Group to discuss why the Minimum wage was just raised by $1.20 per hour (7%) if one is not better off with a pay rise.

      Own goal

      Then it jumps to the not very important publications she worked for.
      Illawarra this, Kiama that.
      She has a BA in history with a Diploma in Churnalism.
      No actual experience in commerce or industry.

      but as Ed says, Miss not-so-bright its mean if you take away benefits after a pay rise.
      There are errors where she says there is Capital Gains tax for selling a house within 5 years.
      Technically it is treated as ‘trading stock’ and becomes taxable under that premise.

      These are your Churnalists, today!
      Yep, the entitlement, dimness and expectation of handouts is for all to see.
      So sad.

  24. Well I have just come back from a stonking big car crash on Dominion Rd
    Outside the Davis funeral home opposite the ‘Gas’ Station/old Nosh now Farro.
    Four cars
    One is completely munted with the roof on the footpath.
    It has gone beyond a convertible.

    Some bugger was going at a hell of speed.
    Way beyond 50 km/hr
    Appears nine injured, 2 seriously.
    Dropping the speed limit to .. whatever.. is not going to stop these mindless idiots.

    NZTA want to distract from their massive incompetence by deflection but these things will happen.
    Normal distribution curve says there will always be complete idiots at several standard deviations out.

  25. If you haven’t had your ‘flu shot you probably aren’t going to get one unless you’re a child, pregnant or elderly.
    Seems we’re suffering from Old Mother Hubbard syndrome:

    I listened to the interview with Dr Nikki Turner waiting expectantly for those reassuring words “Don’t worry, we’ve got some more on the way” but nup.
    There’s always next year.
    Like so many things to do with health in Godzone we’re a day late and a dollar short.
