  1. Tiger Woods wins the Masters. It has been a long time between wins since 2005.
    Always nice to see a comeback.

  2. RSA Anzac lies and misinformation…. If it’s true that the RSA have said they were pressurised into cancelling the events, and the police deny this, can we assume that Nash’s assurance they have no credible threats be taken with the same level of optimism? I don’t have a problem if the events have been cancelled because a threat exists, but don’t feed us bullshit. The inept government have already potentially removed a whole lot of good will by firearm owners towards the police, don’t aggravate the situation further. The men on the beat generally do a fantastic job, while the problems emanate from the plonkers at the top.

  3. After latest ‘news’ of rugby player’s hate speech against me (being a drunk, adulterating, lying, fucking, thieving atheist who idolizes not the lord but others) which I found horribly offensive and hate filled, and that vile disgusting pamphlet drop in Auckland that had the nerve to tell the truth about the original understanding of the treaty of Waitangi, with the hate filled desire to turn off the tap of tax payer retributions, it is obvious that a captains call will be made about hate speech laws….

    I would assume that those on the right that are against any changes are not the kind to block off Queen St in a march of protest (due to the fact that A: most of us are the working class so cant get time off work easily & B: the obvious danger of personal injury, online bullying or defamation from the SJW’s and Antifa etc for being white supremacists and neo nazi’s)

    So, what actual recourse is really available to oppose or stop any more rushed mess of a law being railroaded upon us?

    • Unfortunately very little because Christchurch will be invoked at every turn to shout down and demonise anyone who disagrees.
      The climate of intolerance towards anyone who is not an outspoken cheerleader for diversity and multiculturalism has already become worse since Christchurch and it is only going to go downhill further as the full force of state power is bought to bear to push through changes to hate speech laws and the like by politicians who have been itching to do this for a long time but were just waiting for the right moment.

    • Lefties think they have this whole thing in the bag. They don’t! Wait for the fairy dust to settle- JA still has a country to run and continuously embarrass herself doing so. Remember WE are the Govt. Each vote has enormous power. I for one refuse to be intimidated by any politician, especially these kooks!

  4. The hagiography of Saint Jacinda continues:

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/112017561/why-the-star-of-jacinda-ardern-just-keeps-getting-bigger-and-brighter

    There’s no doubt Ardern is charming…at least to the Left-leaning and fawning media, but intelligent let alone “fiercely intelligent”?

    Intelligent compared to what? A pet mouse, cat, dog or cabbage? If so then perhaps. Compared to the run of the mill human? That seems a stretch. Maybe to the ‘journalist’ Phoebe Watt, she is intelligent. But then, in all likelihood, Watt probably finds the Compact fluorescent lightbulb to be highly intelligent as well.

    The article does indicate how much Ardern loves the press crooning over her:

    [quote]
    We’ve been allowed a two-hour time slot – the blink of an eye in cover shoot terms – and Andrew [Campbell] is clock watching.

    Ultimately though, the PM pulls rank and suggests we shoot a third outfit, delaying her next appointment by half an hour.

    “It’s with the Deputy PM,” she says by way of explanation.

    In other words, Winston can wait. A white Paris Georgia coat dress calls.
    [/quote]

    Which is something we probably knew about Ardern but it is always useful to have accounts of it: neglecting her commitments to government for sycophancy.

    I had to laugh at her claim to Child Poverty Reduction portfolio being important to her, unless she means creating more child poverty (as per Farrar’s post of an increase of child poverty under the CoL).

    • Obviously more fake news, now that the Trump/Russia narrative has been proved false they’ve had to make up some new false claim for clicks!

      Charming is a word I definitely wouldn’t attribute to the PM Select… As for ‘fiercely intelligent’… to a child she may seem that, but the impression I get when when watching an interview or question time is, that she sounds and behaves like a kindy teacher (hence why a child may think shes intelligent)

      And, shes a liar.

    • The media don’t seem to even bother trying to give more than a cursory analysis of the success of the current governments policies anymore because I suppose the pickings are so lean it just becomes embarrassing so the alternative is just have a cult of personality around the leader and have a competition to see who can write the most sycophantic piece.
      Next magazines one took it to a new level and will be hard to top.

      • I have never been a magazine subscriber the occasional one perhaps but the amount of sycophantic spillage from these so called journalists (How do they get this title I wonder???) is mind blowing. It shows a real problem with the left. Adoration usually comes with a large fall from grace and I will not be surprised when it comes with JA

  5. An old man goes into the Social Security Office and fills out an application. Too old to have a birth certificate, he is asked to prove he is old enough. He opens his shirt and shows them the gray hair on his chest and they accept that as proof. He goes home to his wife, shows her the check, and explains to her what has happened. She replies, “Well get back down there, pull down your pants, and see if you can get disability payments!”

  6. This new bestest friends accord between the govt and big building is going to result in the taxpayer subsidising the industry when it comes to big govt projects and kiwibuild projects.
    Saint Jacinda has yet again exceeded our expectations and in one wave of her wand, solved the building industries problems. We are so lucky to have her, give her yet another Nobel Prize. This time for economics.//////////////////////////

    • “Broken industry” is surely an overstatement and a way for the CoL to grasp more control as the largest shareholder. The building industry spokesperson, Peter Reidy, for the CoL’s shakeup interviewed on The AMshow said, despite being asked specific questions on what changes will be made the government spokesperson talked in circles. “Except for repeatedly saying “upskilling of employees” he also stated “the industry needed to work together on how government contract are handled”. He must have been to the same verbal diarrhoea school as Twyford.

      • I’ve been in the industry for over 20 years. It’s simply saturated, not broken. Every builder, architect, tradie etc i know is up to their necks with work. Councils cannot find enough qualified building officers to get the consents out fast enough. The Col Govt’s hair-brained meddling schemes will fix not a damn thing. The market simply demands more skilled people- oh yeah that’s right wasn’t Winnie on a rampage to slash immigration numbers last election? Looks to me they’ve painted themselves into a corner.

  8. Leading the TV3News: Stephen Joyce is right about the CoL’s $11b fiscal hole. Cameron Bagrie, economist says the CoL “front loaded too much expenditure on students, etc as they were expecting approx 3% growth but it has dropped to closer to 2%”.
    Here we go again. In the words of horrible Cullen as finance minister “the cupboard is bare, we have spent the lot.” Plonkers.

    • Personally I don’t have anything against Clarke Gayford as he is just another TV personality trying to make a dollar but I do find the media’s kid gloves treatment of him in comparison to say Max Key when they both have lots of “skeletons” before becoming well known rather telling.
      I suppose Max was an easy target as a rich kid but because Gayford is partnered with New Zealand’s media darling it would be too risky to bring up all his past indiscretions so best pretend they never happened.

                    At a guess it will be MySQL though Maria or PostgreSQL could be possibilities. It will be a case of identifying the offending table (information_schema.tables) and deleting or updating those rows.

                    If you’re less lucky, it will be at the script level (php?). If you can access the command line, you can use grep (assuming Linux) to find the offensive script. You’ll want to back it up before deleting or modifying the script.

                    If it’s part of compiled code, you’re up the proverbial creek without a paddle.

  11. Does anyone have any idea how to effect change if National will not act as a proper opposition party? My view is to stay in the party but make my views very clear about free speech. I was definitely planning on donating a few thousand close to the election. I, of course, will not be doing so and I bet I am not on my own. However, I could not anticipate National’s response to 15 March any more than the tragic event itself. National have acted appallingly in regards to firearm confiscation. I just hope they act more responsibly opposing Little’s attack on free speech.

    If Bridges does not come out with a very clear statement on this I think we will need a change of leadership. The only person I can think of is Mark Mitchell.

    • So you are not left in suspense here is your answer.
      National will put out some vague weasel words around defending free speech but when push comes to shove they will roll over and allow anti free speech legislation to go into law because they will be terrified someone is going to yell racist or alt right sympathisers at them.

      • Chuck I think Mark Mitchell is alright as potential leaders go but as I have said on KB many times before primarily switching to commenting here I think National have completely lost there way and have no idea what they really stand for anymore.
        Unfortunately their policy making process seems to be based around playing it safe and not upsetting anyone which is fine but it is ineffective when it comes to making the decisions which are best for this country.
        Political correctness is pervasive and unfortunately National have not been strong enough to resist it.

        • Christchurch has made everyone weary of offending those who are “woke” to being offended, especially those in the public eye. National are playing it safe so not mentioning fighting for free speech. The support of National on the firearms laws is a worry for all those who hold them legally for legitimate reasons. I’m reserving judgement for closer to the election.

    • I was a fan of Simons leading up till the xmas break, as he seemed quite efficient at making the SLG squirm over the Karel Sroubrek debacle, among others, and I was about to join/donate to the party myself. Since the break it seems like he backed off a bit, more timid etc…

      But as soon as they all rolled over for this messy time-bomb of a firearms law that they rushed through, I lost all hope in national as a party, Simon as a leader, and the joke that is supposed to be our democratic process in this country.

  12. Just been talking to a good friend of mine. He is a gunsmith. He was rung by Stuff last week saying they are pulling his advertising. Said their readership didn’t like reading about guns. Looks like they have become so biased to the left now that they are becoming selective about their advertisers. It is a very sad state of affairs in my opinion.

            While the Soviets were initially against prostitution, it didn’t take them long to reverse that attitude.

            What I was more referring to, and again from the Gulag Archipelago, the press’ capitulation to socialism. This includes the press’ anti-weapon bias.

Then, even the down ticks were offensive for the same reason. Snowflake, limp-wristed, brainwashed journalists. I still read the “save the planet” shit. Good for some laughs!
      It’s this sort of bias that gave rise to Fox news and other conservative news programs and blogs a long time ago.

  13. Since the final TWG report was released in February National has conducted an unrelenting bombardment of media releases on how CGT will ruin our lives. There appears to have been a deliberate and orchestrated strategy to put out at least one doom-laden CGT release every day.

    I have been reminded of a cartoon I saw many a long year ago by the great British cartoonist Giles, showing a man in a room surrounded by protest banners calling for the ousting of US President Lyndon Johnson (yes, that long ago). The man is just putting the finishing touches to another sign and we see someone holding a newspaper headline in front of him saying that Johnson will not stand for re-election.

    And the man says, surveying his multitude of signs, his glorious work: “Damn!”

    Yes, National will claim a kind of victory and say that its strenuous efforts helped derail a full CGT. And they might be right. But it’s going to be a Pyrrhic victory. Because now National might have to stop telling us all what they WON’T do and what they will UNDO and tell us what they actually might DO as a Government.

  14. After God had created man he stepped back and admired his work:

    “Look at this perfect physique, the strong but yet handsome features, the well balanced proportions, I have to say, I am in awe of myself.”

    Then he turned and looked at the woman.After he had been studying her for a while he said:

    “Oh, well, I guess you will just have to wear make-up.”

  15. Dave Allen had a wicked sense of humour. Sacred cows were slaughtered & the Godaddled mocked.

    His last line on many shows was “Goodnight, thank you and may your God go with you.” He also used to observe: “I’m an atheist, thank God.” but he also had another line: “I certainly hope God has a sense of humour……if not, I’m in trouble.”

    NZ used to reverberate from the rattle of the rosary beads after his TV shows. 🙂
