    “New Zealand also appears to be headed in the indefinite self-siege direction, with politicians now openly conceding that the nation will probably not open up for business or outbound or inbound travel until at least 2022.

    New Zealand has even worse draconian policies than Australia. Citizens who test positive for COVID-19 are forcibly removed, if necessary, into military-guarded quarantine camps, to deal with COVID-19 outbreaks. The country also locks down entirely in the event of a single new outbreak of the disease, which has a 99.8% recovery rate. The country’s leaders are “optimistic” that they will begin their vaccination program at some point in the middle of 2021. New Zealand’s self-siege has caused entire sectors of its economy to indefinitely collapse.”

    Fuckin’ Jacinda.

    Fuckin’ voters.

    Fuck, fuck, fuck.

    Oh, and good morning YSB bloggers!

    • Don’t forget BGR, Cindy did a ‘little dance’ last year
      because she single-handedly ‘eliminaded’ the
      virus and saved us all.
      I order ALL of you to have a great day and
      let’s be careful out there.

    • This is a terrible lie.
      (What is new?)

      The borders are not closed..
      This is why people are able to bring in the ‘rona.

      If the borders were closed then no-one would come in and out.
      Eg the Wiggles may come in then play a dozen concerts in various locations to 40,000 people.
      Then leave.
      That is not a ‘closed border’

      New ‘New Zealanders’ can come in from India and South Africa.
      All they have to do is pay 3k to stay in a hotel.

      Repeat; That is NOT a closed border.

      OIA- how many Indians coming to NZ actually ended up paying the 3k ?
      Many will get it refunded on ‘compassionate grounds’.

      Anyhow Rissole your ‘communidy’ is diseased now.
      By people who in came across the border within the last month.
      Oh Dear.

    Unemployment Benefits Fraud Could Top $11 Billion

    California may have sent out as much as $11 billion in pandemic unemployment benefits to fraudsters, officials said Monday.

    According to a press release (pdf), California’s Employment Development Department (EDD) has processed 19.5 million claims and paid out $114 billion in unemployment benefits since March 2020, when the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic hit the Golden State. An estimated 10 percent of those payments, or $11.4 billion, has been confirmed to be made to fraudulent claims.

    Earlier this month, Hall warned that a lot of California’s defrauded funds went to foreign crime organizations, which filed unemployment claims with stolen identity information, and used “money mules” in the United States to pick up benefit debit cards.

    voter fraud, benefit fraud, gender fraud, immigration fraud, wages fraud, bnribes.

    The Dems have a lot to answer for.

  4. Forced myself to read the NZH story re Banks and his comments.
    What the hell has NZ Cricket got to do with all this?
    Who the hell do they think they are.
    Along with Vodaphone and other big business we see cancel culture alive and well in NZ. I mean it is truly extraordinary when we have a sporting body dictating what people can and can’t say.
    Kiwis are so pathetic.They will all rollover now and do as they are told while the real racists rule.

      Notice theres not really any denial about the truth of what the caller and banks said but just all about the offendeds feelz and emotions upon hearing it. Cancel culture us just the worst form of virtue signaling

      • Too funny !!

        I have never considered cricket a sport when most are standing around and half are inside ‘the pavilion’ sitting around.
        When they can ‘mark time’ for five days and get a draw. ie. No result.
        When one side will ‘play’ for ‘a draw’ halfway through.

        Basically an event designed to pass time in hot countries. India, Paki, Bengal, Ceylon and AU.

    • Our cricket team is a fucking excellent team now, one of the best, if not the best in the world. Unfortunately virtue signaling will root them. The writing was on the wall with their BLM support. Dumb fucks should just stick to fucking sports & leave the politics out of it – it really pisses me off. Next we will be having racial quotas in sports teams.

        • For sure. All the yarpie cricketers are coming to NZ, that’s part of the reason why the Black Caps are getting so good. Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, BJ Watling, de Grandehomme (Zimbabwe), Neil Wagner. What a gem Wagner is, complete cunt of a bowler for any batsman to face – compulsory concussion check from the dr. for any poor bastard unlucky enough to face him.

  5. Just when you think the taxpayer may be about to stop being rorted.

    Cameras will be sent along three pipelines at the Pike River mine to look deep into the area where 29 men died.

    The police operation will be effectively the first unmanned reentry of the mine workings. Cameras had been put down boreholes previously, but there was limited visibility.

    Police confirmed they would deploy remotely-operated cameras down three pipelines leading from the West Coast mine’s access tunnel, or drift, into the mine.

  6. Arseholes; it’s not their job to decided which locations to report. FS, one was a hairdresser!
    The Ministry of Health chose not to release the names of at least two businesses visited by the Northland community case after her release from managed isolation, Stuff has learned.

    The decision by health officials to keep the names of a hairdresser and holiday home under wraps has raised fresh questions about the balance between privacy and public health.

    Epidemiologist Nick Wilson describes the Ministry of Health’s response to the latest community case as “not very impressive”.

  7. Why did cindy lockdown auckland last time due to a single case and this time theres 3 up that way that have the super bad super deadly new strain and its just carry on as normal?

    Something dosent add up, theyve hyped the new strain up and yet so far it hasnt managed to spread to others yet just quarantine.
    One expery said they may be asymptomatic so they cant spread it… Wtf then why are we worried about asymptomatic folk?
    Me thinks cindy knows shes now burning her political capital on an invisible and hardly deadly sniffles, this is hopfully her downfall and she will burn that capital on covid and get toasted for anything else she tries to do.

    • It’s all such a crock if only people would see it for what it is. The best way to fight back against this madness in my opinion is to absolutely refuse to be tested. And why is HCQ and Ivermectin not available at pharmacies for anyone who wants to protect themselves that way?

    • Thank you for giving hope. You are not so stupid 🙂

      I feel like a bird trapped in Jizzy’s golden cage.

      And to think that two years ago I went from Lhasa to Base Camp Everest (North Face, not the crowded Nepalese side!) with a raging chest infection at 17,200 feet. There were, by the way, only 3 outsiders there, the rest were Tibetans.

      Now I want to go back to Kilimanjaro in Tanzania this year but the biggest problem isn’t ‘altitude’. It’s ‘ATTITUDE’! Cindy’s ‘attitude’.

      And to think my wife and I survived the Taliban in Pakistan and Afghanistan on our HONEYMOON!!! The photos are here. They are actually quite interesting: http://www.speedy.co.nz/pakistan/index.htm

      [Note to Mike Hunty: there are NO pornographic images!]

      This is one of my personal favourites, taken under the influence of Afghani charas [hashish] http://www.speedy.co.nz/pakistan/view2.htm

      FFS I even survived malaria contracted from (former?) head hunters on Nias Island, off the west coast of north Sumatra, Indonesia!

      FUCK I DESPISE COWARDS AND FOOLS!!!

      • Chest infections are not uncommon at altitude. I had a shocker when I was in Ladakh in 1975, felt like death and considered giving up. Being young and fit I carried on and glad I did and of course I recovered.
        You are right about Pakistan being a beautiful country (and Afghanistan too I travelled there extensively between 1969 and 1975).

        • Wow. I would LOVE to hear about it. Do you still have any photos?

          Ladakh is very famous now but unknown (except among exceptional backpackers) in 1975!

          Where did you go in Pakistan? Afghanistan? I REALLY want to go to Herat.

          • I have been all over Afghanistan on three trips in 1969, 1972 when I walked to the Minaret of Djam after reading Freya Stark’s book on her trip there (I met her years later in the Yemen) and 1975. In 1975 after a month going the Northern route in Afghanistan and to Bamiyan and Band-i-Amir. I drove through the Khyber Pass into Pakistan intending to visit Baltit and the Hunza Valley. Unfortunately (a lifelong regret) I was turned back due to the road being closed by a massive landslip. I headed for Srinagar and when I got there discovered that the road to Leh was open for the first time to foreigners that year so off I went. Leh was completely undeveloped as far as tourism was concerned that year but as a visiting “dignitary” (being English still counted for something back then) I got to stay in the Dak bungalow. Time was getting on and I left just before the snow to be in Nepal (my first visit) to trek to the Annapurna Base Camp in November. I have been to Nepal (and India) several times the last time being in 1987 on honeymoon. I consider myself very fortunate to have seen these places before war and, perhaps even worse, mass tourism has ruined what was so magical about them.
            I still have lots of photos that I look at from time to time.

              • I walked there in 1972 from Chackcharan with a guide and a mule to carry my pack. By 1975 there was a rudimentary road and I drove there for a second visit in my Land Rover Series 2 with a couple of fare paying Norwegian passengers to help with the fuel cost. On the second visit there was a caretaker living in a small hut near the minaret and he kindly opened the door and allowed me to climb to the top. It was very dark and the wooden staircase would not pass modern health and safety standards shall we say.

              • Back in about 1976 I went to a lecture Freya Stark gave at the RGS in London. She had recently sailed down the Ganges on a raft to celebrate her eightieth – there’s a BBC film of the journey. At that lecture she said something which has stayed with me all my life and through all my travels. She said “When everybody can travel everywhere won’t it be wonderful to stay at home.” At that time I had no idea of where I could or would call home all I wanted to do was travel. It was already obvious that England was not going to be livable for me into the future and it was eleven years before I first set foot in New Zealand. Since arriving in New Zealand with a resident visa in 1993 and after many a travail, I have never wanted to go anywhere else. In New Zealand I finally found a home and I am happy to stay in it. It is also why I am so dismayed at the wrong path the country has embarked upon spoiling what was the last best country on Earth for our children and grandchildren.
                I met Dame Freya in Yemen when I was introduced by my dear friend Hugh Leach who was First Secretary at the British Embassy during the time of my visit. My son is named for Hugh and you might find his obituary of interest, he was a wonderfully eccentric old Englishman.

                • What a fabulous story about your meeting!

                  I have only rowed a little way down the Ganges. Have you read Eric Newby’s “Slowly Down the Ganges”? I’ve read it several times.

                  I want to go to Yemen, especially Sana and Socotra. Not possible at the moment 🙁

                  Here is a doco on F Stark I’ve lined up for viewing tonight (in Nepal, apparently) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6auEFAwoP1M

                  Another great traveller is my great-great aunt Cornelia Speedy who travelled through the Soudan in 1878 and published her book on that adventure titled “My Wanderings in the Soudan” (1884) which I have in my library (2 vols).

                  “…I am, I believe, with the exception of Lady Baker, the only lady who has as yet made a tour through the Soudan…My original wish was to go to Abyssinia–special interest regarding that country having been raised in my mind from Captain Speedy’s residence there many years before, his connection with it during the Expedition of 1867 and 1868 under Lord Napier of Magdala, and his subsequent guardianship of the late Prince Alamayu, son of Theodore, King John’s predecessor. I did not, however, get so far. Our plans resolved themselves…into a shooting tour through that part of Nubia known as the Eastern Soudan…From Suakin we followed the caravan track to Kassala, from which town we went to the river Settit, the most southerly point of our wanderings; and though we were within sight of the Abyssinian hills, we did not cross the border. I still, however, cherish a secret hope that the day may yet arrive when I shall find myself at the Court of King Johannes…since my husband has been again called to that country to pioneer that Mission recently sent to it under Sir William Hewett.” (From the preface). Speedy undertook her travels in 1878.

                  Isabella Bird was a great female 19th century traveller, little known these days. I’ve read some of her writings.

                  • I’ll watch the Freya Stark video this evening, I haven’t seen it before.
                    Sir Samuel Baker is a favourite explorer of mine from that earlier age. My God those were the days!!!
                    Abyssinia and the Sudan are another area of great interest to me mostly because of the writings of Sir Wilfred Thesiger. the last of the Great Explorers. I had the great pleasure of meeting and staying with Thesiger on two separate occasions at his home in Maralal, Kenya when I lived there before coming to NZ. Again it was dear old Hugh who furnished me with a letter of introduction to Thesiger made me very welcome and was intrigued that I was the first and only person who had ever arrived to visit him on a motorbike 🙂 Such happy days.

                    • You must surely have seen this “The Empty Quarter 1967” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDWNFueckoM

                      I have “Arabian Sands” in my (extensive!) library. His story of the hare is burned in my memory. The journey was great hardship!

                      You are so fortunate to have met Thesiger. An uncle of his was a Viceroy of India. I have not been to Kenya but I have been to Tanzania as well as Zanzibar and Pemba Island – the centre of black magic and voodoo in Africa. Zanzibar is a jewel!

                      In Africa II learned a bit of Swahili, to add to my Thai, Lao, Malay, Bahasa Indonesia, Sanskrit, Sumerian, Tocharian, Minoan, Ancient Greek and a dozen others 🙂

                      Attending Friday prayers in Zanzibar and Arusha were incredible experiences.

                      Newby met Thesiger in the Hindu Kush, recounted in “A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush”.

                      All of this was of great value when I went on the Hajj to Mecca and Medina in 2013 (AH 1434). It helped me blend in.

  8. All these NZ lines companies setting up “smart metering”.
    How ever will those companies be able to remote control things like your water heating, and in Germany can control your heat pumps, or just close you down for a few hours.

    … new are restrictions as to when power can be consumed by consumers and industry: Energy rationing and targeted blackouts! ….
    … a draft law that would allow electric utilities “to temporarily cut off the charging power for e-cars when there is once again too little electricity available”, an idea known as “peak smoothing”. …..

    ….. proposed draft law, which has since been recalled because it was deemed so embarrassing, it was written that “controllable consumption facilities” would be able to receive no electricity for up to two hours per day if there was a threat of overloading the grid.
    “This includes charging stations for e-cars as well as heat pumps, which can already be temporarily disconnected from the power supply,” ….
    …… abstruse ideas like: ‘You are not allowed to refuel your car from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day!’” …..

    https://notrickszone.com/2021/01/19/last-ditch-effort-germany-weighs-electricity-rationing-scheme-to-stabilize-its-now-shaky-green-power-grid/

    The problems in Germany at this stage is covered by other the resources that can be pulled on from other countries, but it looks like there is also a risk of dragging them down to.

    Noting in the comments section, concerns about NZ and also the political cover up in Australian States.

    “It’s a policy of going full speed in total blackness, and hoping there won’t be a brick wall in the way”.
    No worry, that is why government is so helpful by ensuring that you will all have your safety belts on, automatic crash bags. and the speed limits will be well reduced, so all will be “most safe” with electricity you can afford. // 🙁

    • Sooty, “expect more” as they will digitally pull the strings.
      Water heating response to the 1970’s as street lights turned off, etc.. etc.. so varying forms of “ripple control” was enabled.
      It was a form of “flattening the curve” of demand during critical times.

      Now changed with marketing, a meme, so like a drug, “flattening the curve” has become normal.

      Though now it would seem to be more ably targeted, to certain house holds.
      Would it be worked on age? need? medical conditions? or phased over to other conditions.

      Probably more like who is expendable, and have you enough “social credit”? said & done the right things.
      “It was you who wrote that nasty comment on that blog, so suffer in the cold”, so the mob will howl.

      Or rich people can pay more, so the poorer people can be “helped” as new form of re-distributing resources?
      An indirect way, so once in place, the government can play and say, and not be so directly blamed.

      A bit far?, but the last 2 years shows how quickly and in the balance many things have been pressured up.

      • Part time, or to fit in with peak parts of business, considering prep times, and cleaning down after.

        The other part is there seems to be a massive over lap of times, so would seem to be allowing for the “aerosol” times of contaminated air, particularly in enclosed spaces to fully disperse to weaker levels?

        Any surfaces like a button in lifts?, eftpos terminals, to be wiped up by others? if not cleaned between uses.

        As Odakyu-sen mentions, the difficulties for the owners, like who is paying for the “deep cleans” “down time” and then if any “down turn” in business.

        Will the government supposed “support packages” of last year’s “election promises” even eventuate? for people and business’s who are affected, impacted by CoVid?

Hopefully this is his last hurrah in public life as I find him a self serving, self entitled smarmy, disingenuous, incompetent prick. Now that I’ve mentioned his good points, perhaps we can have a real discussion about his history as a career arsehole and bull shitter. I was an Act member till he and Brash showed their lack of fibre. A good party dragged down by fuckwits can and did reinvent itself. Maybe National can take hope?

I don’t want to be seen Beneficiary bashing but when Government does not know how much it is spending on third party social services organizations and Treasury has no idea how to measure the spending surely this should have sent alarm bells to the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Grant Robertson.This might also be one of the reasons the unemployed seem to have had never ending pockets of cash over the festive season.

    • Time for a complete overhaul. Maori are calling for increased funding for a replacement quango of Oranga Tamariki. They may be right but before we dish out any more money, isn’t it time we took an inventory of monies paid against outcomes achieved? The danger in this, for Maori at least, is most of their funding would be withdrawn immediately if it was reliant on improved outcomes for all Maori, not just the snouts in the trough. We don’t know how much has been spent but we know it’s a lot. Yet Maori outcomes are worse than ever and show no signs of abating. Where is the incentive to move your people from the bottom of the heap when your very healthy income is derived from their existence?

        If you receive tax-payer funds to manage a social problem, then where is the incentive for you to reduce or eliminate the problem?

      Illegal roadblocks in the north where many have legitimate homes.
      Multiple confusion and the resultant fear.
      All deliberate.
      Apparently more late night nonsense announcements on Wed night (27/1/21) just like 11 Aug 2020 .

      This is fear porn on speed.

      I repeat what I said more than once last year.
      Ashen Bloomfailed is a cunt.
      Forget ‘the flu’ Bloomfailed is a sick bastard.

  13. Gone mad, so the arrest him. aka Ricky Vaughn, posted a funny and snarky memes on Twitter:
    Is it Hilary Clinton’s revenge for losing to Trump and his deplorable’s?

    ….. between September 2016 and November 2016, in the lead up to the Nov. 8, 2016, U.S. Presidential Election, Mackey conspired with others to use social media platforms, including Twitter, to disseminate fraudulent messages designed to encourage supporters of one of the presidential candidates (the “Candidate”) to “vote” via text message or social media, a legally invalid method of voting.

    For example, on Nov. 1, 2016, Mackey allegedly tweeted an image that featured an African American woman standing in front of an “African Americans for [the Candidate]” sign.
    The image included the following text: “Avoid the Line. Vote from Home. Text ‘[Candidate’s first name]’ to 59925[.] Vote for [the Candidate] and be a part of history.”
    The fine print at the bottom of the image stated:
    “Must be 18 or older to vote. One vote per person. Must be a legal citizen of the United States. Voting by text not available in Guam, Puerto Rico, Alaska or Hawaii. Paid for by [Candidate] for President 2016.” ….

    https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/social-media-influencer-charged-election-interference-stemming-voter-disinformation-campaign

    Can I ask a question, did those 5,000 voters have proper ID and truly eligible to vote.?

    ,,,,, Text ‘Hillary’ to 59925. Vote for Hillary and be a part of history,” the complaint states.
    More than 4,900 people, encouraged by the misinformation campaign, cast their vote via text, officials said. …..

    https://nypost.com/2021/01/27/alt-right-twitter-troll-ricky-vaughn-busted-for-voter-disinformation/

    One could think he was doing a service by quite possibly culling out illegal votes, based on gullibilty etc.. & …… ….. hmm? 🙂
    How many times did one of them vote?

    Was he one of those “white terrorists”?
    Be ware all those government politicians, techno-bureau-crats etc,, will “Bend their Knee” and comply with orders.
    Even if acquitted the punishment is using costly “lawfare” to break people.
    All of that is now being positioned into NZ, and has become well entrenched with the call of the NZ public for more.
    Just needs the final tick from the Parties in power.

    • Is the reponse of FBI , trying to prove that all votes count? whether unsigned, no address, etc.. but only for “special people”. hmm.

      So this one is not up on fraud issue either, and she tries to present as more credible. 🙁
      Hey 🇺🇸Trump Supporters🇺🇸! Skip poll lines at #Election2016 and TEXT in your vote! Text votes are legit. Or vote tomorrow on Super Wednesday!
      https://twitter.com/i/status/795999059987173377
      26 secs.

      If people believe such twitter knobs, then they deserve to lose their vote.

      Will the FBI hold election promises to be so important like Biden claiming he would not ban fracking?, or there is a devious circle as put out by Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki.

  14. National increasing the pressure on the RMA reforms to allow housing to grow.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2021/01/national-s-housing-spokesperson-nicola-willis-solutions-to-solve-crisis.html

    When asked whether she supported creative housing ideas such as converting old motel rooms and primary schools into apartments, Willis says that can’t be done at the moment.

    “There’s way too much red tape in the way. It’s impossible to do innovation like that. National’s proposal is to make that a lot easier. Let’s see those good ideas come to the fore.”

    • Me thinks national is using a bit of reverse psychology here, cindy has done(or tried to do) exact opposite of what nats call for esp with covid etc then 6+ mnths later cindy has to give in and do it because its the only option left.

      She will hold out on rma reform to spite judith and will betray her voters instead and introduce an inflation tax/cgt as well as some other bonehead policy. End result even worse housing affordability problem.

      Imo easiest way out of the housing problem is to get ppl back into the regional areas, theres vaccant houses everywhere in rural nz where small towns are dying a lingering death, cheap properties (need a bit of work but still cheap and a roof over ya head).
      Fast track fibre internet etc to those places to meet the boom of work from home that eventuated from covid lockdowns, the houses are there and some infrastructure surely its gotta be faster easier and cheaper then a whole new large scale subdivision?

      • Iaasb, A good point.
        I know in provincial areas, houses are being pulled down, if they can not be sold for removal. Others are quietly left empty, or become a storage warehouse.

        To rent them out, is would cost too much to bring them up to standard and by then the return is negible.
        Another hassle is that those supposedly thankful tenants, do not like cows going down the nearby race for morning milking, or the engine sound of a tractor going around feeding out that pungent smelling silage.

        Then the same tenant wants to keep a dog, often unregistered, that likes to roam.
        Land lord tenant relations become very strained when that dog is shot, when not on its section.
        Do you think they would pay for the dog worrying of sheep & lambs?

        I think now the provincial small town prices are going up,
        What gets the ones in those small towns are the eye watering rates, that are also rocketing to achieve up grades for town water supplies, and then also the sewerage systems.
        Sadly councils are now forcing rural rate payers to make contributions to the beleaguered small towns.
        The rates of farms then go up, but strangely enough if they can expand, amalgamate, then it becomes another way to drive their rates down a bit, that is per sheep, per dairy cow, and incentives for less staff so no rates are paid on that staff farm house.

        Ultimately just plant it up in trees, no improvements like sheds, houses to charge rates on and just collect carbon credit returns,

        If it goes into native bush, maybe even more reason goes into QE2 trust or as the local government snaffles it under Significant Natural Areas, at some stage so no rates will be charged.

        • An old house that needs a bit of tlc is better then no house at all, we have a beggars cant be chosers situation with housing except the bulk of the beggars feel entitled to choose.

          Btw the standards for rental now are dicky and expensive, if all those new requirements are that essential for public health and wellbeing then why arent they mandatory for all homes not just rentals?

          Many live in homeowners live in old houses yet we never hear about how black mould makes then sick, freezing in winter with a huge power bill etc etc.
          You dont hear about it because percentage wise fuck all of those homeowners get sick, 90% of the problems not the dwelling its the people in them!

          We and live in a 95yr old house, high ceilings and huge floor area in freezing southland yet can manage to easily keep it toasty and aired out no dampness yet HNZ tennants freeze in their mould infested cold damp home thats relatively modern.

    • I would be OK with just ditching public transport buses. My view all public transport is not a runner if the users are not paying to cover the costs.

      I do not wish to subsidise public transport by rates or taxes or both. I do not want to be taxed for an inefficient and very expensive light rail piece of nonsense open Auckland.

      Have heard all the arguments about saving road travel but not convinced. Users should cover the cost or forget it. Sell the lot if it does not pay its way without smoke and mirrors justification or no nonsense accounting.

  16. Why do Maori need funding to do what everyone else does for nothing?

    Sir Mark Solomon says Maori have been confronting the abuse within care and protection agencies for decades. Given the enormous amounts of money and power handed to Maori over those decades, why are Maori still top of all the negative indices? After decades of knowing the problems and having the money to solve those problems, they have achieved little. But with more funding they could do great things. Like what, where’s the great phoenix plan for Maoridom? All we hear are complaints and blaming, never solutions.

    Not one Maori leader has the balls to stand up and say Maori need to greatly improve their parenting skills. It’s such a crock to claim that Maori are somehow more whanau based than others when statistics state the opposite. The beauty of looking after your kids well costs buggar all. It’s not rocket science, you can easily emulate those who do parenting well. Most of raising good kids is personal effort, keeping everyone clean and healthy and their environment, excluding people or things who threaten their safety, playing games and sport, reading together, teaching history, going to school prepared, the benefits of good manners, that stealing or lying are bad, dealing with conflict etc, They all cost nothing. No funding necessary. Successful parents do these things everyday for free. When Maori abrogate their responsibilities to their own children they can hardly complain when others are left to pick up the pieces.

    • Excellent comment coralsea, the biggest hurdle i see them having to overcome is accepting blame and this needs to happen before they attempt to do anything else. We have an entire race of ppl in nz (america is same with blacks) That have been told repeatedly its whiteys fault etc etc when infact whitey isnt the one beating the poor maori kid to death or spending the grocery money on booze cigis or pokies.
      The day maori accept responsibility for their own actions and stop blaming others is the day things will turn around and the money will be put to good use.

      The above is also applicable everyone else relying on the state to fix things, not many ppl i know that are in poverty or down on their luck willingly admit that theyre to blame, there ALWAYS seems to someone else to blame.

        If not, then maybe Te Reo is a dead language.

  21. I read about a court case from Rotorua reported on Stuff today. The convicted man was Christopher Young. He had been able to kick his methamphetamine habit some years ago, but had 77 prior convictions. What I found interesting about the case was that he was represented in Court by one of New Zealand’s most expensive barristers, Ron Mansfield. Ron has his chambers at the top of one of NZ’s most expensive office towers on the corner of Wyndham & Queen Streets, Auckland. His fees for attending to a case heard in a Court 238 km from his chambers would have been terribly expensive. Legal Aid would have suggested that one of numerous Rotorua barristers be engaged. Where, oh where do people like Young get the dough to pay those fees? This sort of thing puts my bullshit detectors upon alert.

    • ‘immune responses were inferior to natural infection’

      At least they are honest about that (I am assuming)
      How many of the other pharma companies are not ?

      As a doctor told me years ago- if the human immune system was no good, humans would have been wiped out years ago.

      wiki:
      The Black Death (also known as the Pestilence, the Great Mortality, or the Plague)[a] was a bubonic plague pandemic occurring in Afro-Eurasia from 1346-53. It is the most fatal pandemic recorded in human history, resulting in the deaths of up to 75–200 million

      … is estimated to have killed 30% to 60% of Europe’s population….

      so not everyone succumbed.
      This ran for 7 years then -one has to assume- there was immunity built up.

        Not necessarily; for some it was simply good fortune (perhaps they didn’t ‘taste’ nice?) while others (including several villages) isolated themselves from the outside world, intending to ‘sit out’ however-long it might take.

        Unfortunately the ‘carrier’s of the disease (Rat fleas in this instance) were unknown and in at least one English example, the inhabitants of a self-isolating village all died as a result of the unintentional importation of said Plague-carrying fleas.

        It’s also worth noting that in fact the Plague never entirely died out and can still be found lurking in various Third World states. It is remarkably resilient..

    We are now supposed to feel sympathy for a mob of “global citizens” who through an accident of birth have a right to return. In truth they have probably a better claim than immigrants from the third world who have used their NZ visas to obtain residence & are using our money which funds their quarantine to stage their way around the world.

    Ten months is a long time for them to decide to grace their country of birth, or the country stupid enough to let in refugees, with their presence for their convenience. All we get is the bill to support the bludgers, their moans about quarantine & the costs involved with tracing the diseased arseholes.

    The Pentagon on Wednesday successfully conducted a strategic bomber’s patrol mission from Louisiana to the Middle East to showcase U.S. commitment to regional security, military officials said.

    The crew of the U.S. Air Force B-52H “Stratofortress,” a long-range heavy bomber, departed from Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana on Tuesday and reportedly completed a continuous flight into the Persian Gulf region.
