    • I agree. Let’s portray Maori as prosperous, then cut all the special assistance they get. Because why would such well off people need it?

      I’ll stop and ask the Maori, who have mattresses set up in the street, on my way to the market this morning.

    • When considering Maori on the rich/poor scale it pays to remember the analogy of the half filled bucket of crabs where those who try to escape are pulled back into the bucket by their whanau. We have come to expect a society where there are a few poor & a few rich but most in the middle do okay.

      If a Maori does well he’ll be inundated with “couzies” on the bludge who he’s obliged to support. He might as well grab a mattress & join the whanau on the street if he can’t keep the fruits of his labour.

      With collectivism there is no incentive.

      • Nasska that hit the nailon the head, well at least while theyre youngish and naive.

        Ive worked with several good young maori chaps over the years and it was a total eye opener, a couple of them their mothers would come into the office and see if they could get their kids wages put into their (the mothers) account, a few brothers and cuzis rocked up from time to time trying to do the same!!!
        The first young guy like that i made good freinds with and he had just moved out of home and earning really good money and bought a big ass plasma tv, mum and his lil bro came to visit and seen it… “share that with youre brother boy, our tv half that size” and the fucking mole left with the tv and bought my mate back her shitty old tv. Picked the poor guy up on xmas day 2008 crying in the gutter at 10am, mum and dad got pissed already and beat the shit outa him. He only got ahead ans got away from that shit in his mid 20s when he escaped to aussie (his parents wouldnt ket him get passport or leave).

        Scummy maoris love to turn good maori to scum, its the worst type of tall poppy syndrome ive seen.

      • Nasska….
        As a young guy at Tomoana Freezing Works, an old Maori lady in the boning room explained to me what she called the ‘crayfish in the pot syndrome.’

        By way of example she told me about the Crawford family at Bridge Pa (Karen Crawford- Maori All Black and HB Ranfurly Shield player in the good old days). The Crawford’s were shearing contractors and owned the general store at Bridge Pa.

        She said the local Maori would rather travel the 10 miles into Hastings and do their shopping with a Pakeha business than give their custom to a fellow Maori.

      • that’s why they thrive when they move oversea’s.

        One told me a while back. Not coming home because over in Aussie I can keep my lawnmower and other things. Here some prick wants to borrow it and they either bring it back broken or they never bring it back.

  1. Pat Condell has another well thought out commentary on these times.
    “Hate Speech” is what he tackles in this video, and the importance of retaining “free speech”.

    As Pat touches on “Common Purpose” I put these links to show the globalism effect of this modernized version of the “Masons” and “Papacy” network.
    https://commonpurpose.org/about-us/common-purpose/

    Some issues & controversy & how it networks.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Purpose_UK

    I am sure it is here, like noting the Human Rights Commissioner, Paul Hunt from the UK, that will be schooling up our Andrew Little, and others with “Hate Speech Laws” and their variants.
    Probably that Meng Foon is being taught those Common Purpose points, just like Susan Devoy was.
    So this lot also march through our Institutions, Academia, Education, Judiciary & Police, Media, and on through our bureaucrats & technocrats.

    So well put Pat Condell 🙂
    So many points that Pat makes, simple & to the point, we must remember, and then use those points to hose down the left, and expose their stupidity for others to see too. 🙂

    • Worth a read and figure how deep this is in New Zealand as well.

      Common Purpose is largely unknown to the general public.
      .
      It recruits and trains “leaders” to be loyal to the directives of Common Purpose and the EU, instead of to their own departments, which they then undermine or subvert, the NHS being an example.
      .
      Common Purpose is identifying leaders in all levels of our government to assume power when our nation is replaced by the European Union, in what they call “the post democratic society.” They are learning to rule without regard to democracy, and will bring the EU police state home to every one of us.
      .
      Common Purpose is also the glue that enables fraud to be committed across these government departments to reward pro European local politicians. Corrupt deals are enabled that put property or cash into their pockets by embezzling public assets.
      .
      It has members in the NHS, BBC, the police, the legal profession, the church, many of Britain’s 7,000 quangos, local councils, the Civil Service, government ministries, Parliament, and it controls many RDA’s (Regional Development Agencies).
      .
      Cressida Dick is the Common Purpose senior police officer who authorised the “Shoot to kill” policy without reference to Parliament, the law or the British Constitution. Jean de Menezes was one of the innocents who died as a result. Her shoot to kill policy still stands today. ……

      https://wikileaks.org/wiki/Common_purpose
      .
      Though this article is dated, and of the UK. and times of the EU, the subversion of democracy is seems to be still happening and I am sure has metastasized quietly in New Zealand.

  2. Christians’ and politics Yeah / nah

    Luxon’s religious views risk turning off middle ground voters
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/on-the-inside/439247/luxon-s-religious-views-risk-turning-off-middle-ground-voters

    Christianity in politics, of course, is nothing new; his own National Party now has a definite seam of Christian conservatism with MPs of strong faith holding some of the party’s safest seats – noticeably more so than during the days of John Key.

    The commitment to religious values in National shone through last term in particular because Parliament had hefty and long-running conscience issues – voluntary euthanasia an obvious one. These are, of course, issues where MPs are expected to draw on their personal beliefs; the legislative debates and public hearings just provided a platform for views expressed forcefully, often intertwined with matters of faith and religion.

    • Idont care if someone is religious i just turn off when they make a big deal about it or try cram it down my throat.

      The abortion, euthanasia and weed thing tho, to bash someones religion for disagreeing is just tho pro side bullying and sour grapes theres opposition and uncomfortable facts they dont like.

      Im the least religous guy youll meet but im dead against all that shit, MORALS guide most peoples decisions not their faith.

      Its a pity our current govt dont have any morals.

    • Mp’s of course should put thier own views aside and reflect the wishes of their electorate.
      Given that the Christians are, like Maori, only a small part of that electorate then we are not served well as the polls show.

      • Viking, half their electorates are fucking stupid and unable to help themselves is that why our politicians are stupid because theyre representing stupid?

        Because most of the public are stupid and uninformed then i believe mps shouldnt follow all the electorates wishes but instead do whats best for the ekectorate and the country, for that it takes morals and common sense which is majorly lacking on both sides of parliament.

        If they done everything the electorate wished we woukd end up with forced vaccinations, major confiscations and distribution of houses/land and an ultra woke country. Fuck that shit.
        Voting eligibilty needs to be IQ tested.

  5. Although banned from The BFD many moons ago (something to do with Winston Peters, his lawyer, Blubber Boy, and payback), I do have the occasional peek.

    I hope George doesn’t mind me quoting his contribution of the day here:
    “Open letter to our Prime Minister:

    There is increasing evidence that “resilience”, once an essential virtue to cope with life’s pitfalls, is a foreign concept amongst today’s younger set. Or in laymen’s terms, they are becoming soft. Your insistence that we all be “kind” is manipulative hogwash. Kindness does not protect the insecure from facing up to their responsibilities, in effect it only drives them into a state of co-dependency. They live their lives void of reality. They become brittle to the many insignificant disruptions within their unrealistic expectation of a tranquil life. They embrace victimhood rather than self reliance. All because the kindness they seek from society is a fabricated nonsense promoted by you.

    Kindness is an emotional response that we all extend when appropriate. It has never been required as a political decree until somewhere, from within your perceived wisdom, you believed our collective emotional templates required adjustment. Is it your own vulnerability that craves kindness? If it is, then you are in the wrong job. Or possibly your desire for kindness is a concealment of your true self.

    There is clear evidence that your own kindness is very selective. Your socialist ideology is becoming more apparent and the kindness you speak of is the tool you embrace knowing the vulnerable will continue to cling to you. You avoid political conflict, you avoid political scrutiny, but worst of all, when you have nowhere to hide you become dishonest, a trait that exposes your kindness as a sham. Those of us who have taken on the responsibility of contributing to our wonderful nation by working hard and thus reaping the rewards of our labour are treated like guttersnipes. You are clearly of the opinion that we, who have the will to take charge of our destiny, are the enemy of your bizarre ideology.

    Socialism and kindness cannot be compatible. Socialism strips people of their dignity, self esteem, ambition and independence. What kind person would contemplate that? I have therefore programmed my email in-tray to discard any correspondence from you and/or your party directly into the spam file along with all the other shysters and fraudsters.”

        I would love to pen something to her about the implementation of the UN agenda which she has no mandate to carry out as far as I’m concerned and to blatantly speak to the UN in September 2019 and proudly state that she intends to carry on with the policy implementation is fraud.
        She was elected to represent New Zealanders , not the UN.

      • You credit her too much – Ardern is a psychologically fragile wretch of limited intellect who swapped one cult (Mormonism) for another (socialism). If she were to really confront what she is and what she is truly capable of, it would result in a catastrophic unraveling. Personally I could care less but she has and will continue to, cause serious damage to this country until she either implodes or is removed.

  6. The homeless encampments of central Wellington look like they had a big night with the festival on. But no time to rest as they had their begging and drinking spots sorted well before workers turned up.

    To fully appreciate the piss and vomit soaked streets of Wellington, you need to be an early riser like me. The lost souls staggering around, or sleeping, in the streets. But later the trannies, lezbos, and poofters, will arrive. Decked out in rainbow colours, they will paint a thin facade of caring and inclusion.

    Only then will you appreciate what your tax dollars are buying.

    Thanks NZ. You bunch of cunts.

    tSpconsolr1eofd5h ·
    BREAKING: Major IT scandal raises questions about vaccine roll-out
    This evening I have released further details of a major IT scandal, raising serious questions about the Government’s Covid-19 vaccine roll out.
    Last night I was contacted by two individuals who told me they had raised with the Minister of Health and the Ministry of Health earlier that evening that there was a potential data privacy breach within the booking system being used for household contacts to book their Covid-19 vaccination.
    People accessing the system were able to pull the national health numbers of people, their cell phone numbers, emails and dates of birth.
    I immediately alerted Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins.
    This afternoon the Ministry of Health described the issue as a ‘coding error’ affecting just the Canterbury DHB, but the situation is far worse than the Ministry has publicly admitted to.
    My understanding from talking to the people who raised the initial alarm is that:
    · The system was so poorly designed that people could log in, pretend to be a vaccinator, alter patient records (such as marking people as having been vaccinated), change their appointment times (including in the past), and even attempt to claim funding from the Ministry of Health for completing a vaccination.
    · The system appears to have been built by Valentia Technologies.
    · The same booking system was due to be rolled-out to Wairarapa, Capital Coast, Taranaki, West Coast, Hutt Valley and Mid-Central District Health Boards, not just Canterbury as the Ministry has said.
    There are serious questions for the Government to answer from this scandal:
    · What access, if any, did the company who built the system have to private patient data?
    · Why are DHBs hiring IT companies to provide booking systems for the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out?
    · Why wasn’t the system tested before it went live?
    · Where is the nationwide Covid-19 booking system at, and why isn’t it ready to go?
    · Is the Valentia Tech system actually the nationwide booking system?
    The Government’s vaccine roll out is looking like a shambles. Three of the four necessary IT systems aren’t ready to go and the idea of vaccinating 2 million people from July onwards is looking like a pipe dream.
    We need much greater openness and transparency from the Government about what has happened here.

  8. The ‘black hole’ of transparency: Secret council workshops under the microscope

    This week, Local Democracy Reporting revealed a Rotorua man has complained to the Office of the Ombudsman about Rotorua Lakes Council’s refusal to provide detailed information on the content of its public-excluded workshops.

    Now, an information request reveals most New Zealand councils are holding dozens of closed-door workshops a year. A constitutional law expert says it is a “troubling black hole” in the transparency of local government, while a leader in the sector suggests change may be on the horizon.

    Local Democracy Reporter Felix Desmarais asks: how much is the public missing out on in secret council workshops?

    • Yup. No matter what your thoughts on abortion, it is hypocrical for political leaders to claim a Christian faith that is antiabortion, yet promote some of the most liberal abortion laws possible. That includes Jacinda whose kindness paradigm obviously does not extend to the unborn…. Yes there are lots of things about the Catholic Church that bug the shits out of me, but where I do agree with them without reservation is their stance on abortion.

        If god is all powerful and creator of all then HE (or SHE or They if god is gender fluid) made the homos

        Therefore, how can the other folk hate god’s own creation?

        If god did not create homos then He/She/They is not all powerful and not top dog…so why the adulation?

        So either god is all powerful and made the homos so why criticise, or god is not all powerful and flawed so dial back the worship.

  10. National will repeal the tax changes and return the ‘bright line test’ to two years to specifically target rampant speculators trying to make a quick buck. As it was originally intended to do. We’ll focus our efforts on policy that will actually move the dial on the supply of new land and housing, and not punish renters and the vast majority of landlords trying to do the right thing in a limited market.

    We also have proposals on the table from Gerry Brownlee to reform Māori Land (27,000 blocks of land or around 1.4 million hectares), changes to the Unit Titles Act from Nicola Willis to make it fit for purpose for apartment owners and buyers, and more innovative solutions to deliver better long-term infrastructure funding from Andrew Bayly through a National Infrastructure Bank.

    • …National will repeal …
      no they will not.

      Show me ANY examples in the last 40 years.
      They talk crap.
      Never stood up in August 2018 when free speech was under attack with the two Canadians and their own former leader Don Brash at Massey Agricultural college.

      They backed the Zero Carbon crap two years ago then said they did not support it – but voted for it to pass (Duh!) – but would repeal it….same bullshit.

      They supported hasty gun legislation and bad law in 2019.

      The Notional party of New Zealand with Goodfellow as President loves bad law.

      They never objected to the dreadful practice of making law retrospective three days after Chc March 15 Shooting and retrospectively making ‘watching the video’ illegal.
      Bad law.
      Terrible law.
      Did any shitlicker in Notional object to this ?

      The lying pricks did no tax reform in 2008 to 2017 apart from a minor shift in 2010 of lower income tax and higher GST.
      No net effect therefore no repeal, improvement, or change.

      The never addressed why NZ has this hideous Working For Families distortion in the economy which basically says income and costs structures are out of balance.

      They continually whinge about the RMA which THEY passed in 1991.
      They had nine years to do something in 2008 to 2017.
      Nuffin.

      They bought in leaky homes with the building changes (untreated timber) in the 1990s under Bolger.
      Therefore there is a whole lot of rework instead of building new houses.
      If a business has 20% warranty re-work they would go under.

      They never indexed tax bands but talked about it after they lost in 2017.
      Yakking after the fact when you had nine years to do something is a W.O.F.T.

      They never changed the Rural /Urban boundary rules which generally created land banking and huge profits for their mates (and donors)
      They set up the disaster that is Auckland Council that after more than 10 years has not one success story.
      Akl Council have not sorted out the allocation of sports to venue/stadiums (like North Harbour; Eden Park; Mt Smart; western Springs etc.)
      Most sports are now on a year by year basis so cant do improvements and this has been going on for 7 years.

      The rubbish collection systems were going to be standardized in 3 to 4 years.
      Places are still the same as 10 years ago.

      In fact building approval was stalled in Auckland while they fluffed around to create the Unitary Plan.
      Not a single win in ten years from this Notional/R Hide bastard child.

      Notional started off the cycle way mania which has continued with ridiculous spending.

      Notional party are exactly that.
      Notional.
      Definition
      ‘existing as or based on a suggestion, estimate, or theory; not existing in reality.’

      On the ‘bright line test’
      this was introduced by Notional and they cannot object to it as they brought it in, opening the way to Capital Gains tax.
      Notional own this fiasco jointly with Labour.
      Don’t hide.
      Don’t lie Willis or whoever is the Notional MP gobbing off.

      There already was -and is- a place in the tax code for this.
      If the property is Trading stock then it is subject to income tax.
      If purchased for the intention of resale for gain then subject to income tax.

      This bastard tax child of Key/English/Joyce should never have been born.
      The law was there already.
      They set this alternative tax in motion.
      It was ‘new tax’ from Notional.
      Read my lips. There WILL be new taxes.

      To address the problem Notional had created:
      They opened the flood gates to immigrants to become Uber Drivers; cleaners; liquor store clerks etc at over
      60, 000 ppl a year and the houses were not being built as defined above.
      Most went to Auckland.

      Summary:-
      Notional created Auckland council in 2010
      It was rushed so had no real plans .
      They waited years for a Unitary plan.
      Limited housing approval meantime.
      To kick off the economy Notional opened up immigration from shitholes
      No houses for them.
      Supply and Demand – Econ 101.
      House prices rise.
      Notional decides IRD is too understaffed or too lazy to to apply exiting rules so they introduce a :
      NEW TAX = Brightline.

      They birthed it.
      Labour nurtured it and now we have a capital gains tax.
      …and Notional will not repeal it just like they will not repeal Carbon Zero they voted FOR.

      Notional can yabber yabber yabber all they like.
      They are full of shit.
      Full of it.

    • I read a post on another blog yesterday. It went something like this ” When you understand that this was a virus produced for a vaccine, then it all falls into place”

      As for Hancock –he is really saying the vaccines do not work or achieve nothing. That Sage group has Hancock b..ls in vice and is continually winding up the handle.

  15. Front that caused flooding in Aussie about to arrive over NZ.

    Severe weather warnings issued as front moves over New Zealand
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2021/03/severe-weather-warnings-issued-as-front-moves-over-new-zealand.html

    “Rainfall rates of 25 to 40 mm/h are possible. Rainfall of this intensity can cause surface and/or flash flooding, especially about low-lying areas such as streams, rivers or narrow valleys, and may also lead to slips. Driving conditions will also be hazardous with surface flooding and poor visibility in heavy rain.”

    • Auckland council/Watercare will still say huh, never touched our dams.

      They are like the climate change liars of recent decades.
      Making their numbers fit the story.

      It puts one in mind of Monty Python- the Black Knight sword fight – ’tis but a scratch.
      They dont align with reality.

  16. For ones who note the change in gun laws in NZ.
    Compare and Contrast the commonsense of this police officer, one of the few with commonsense, who serve and protect.

    This police officer in Tennessee would have my vote, in how gun licencing works.
    Also the way how he notes the change in policing.

  17. From Brash and Hyde.

    When John Banks was Mayor he commissioned a study of the Auckland transport situation. A few salient facts found:

    Auckland at its most dense (Ponsonby because of the smaller section size) has less than half the population density required to make any public transport system break even.

    The majority of the traffic on the harbour bridge is not travelling to or from Auckland: It is passing through the isthmus.

    The occupancy rate of vehicles has been steadily falling for years. 20 years ago it was 1.3 persons per vehicle now it’s around 1.1.

    Approx. 50% of rush hour traffic is “education related” (a figure I still find staggering). I suppose this includes kids being taken to school, students going to uni, and teachers going to work. I suspect this is driven (pun intended) by parents refusing to send their kids to the local school; instead travelling across town every day for a school run.

    At the time of the survey, about 15 years ago, the population density in the city’s ‘satellite suburbs’ was steadily falling despite 30years of infill construction. This was due to the Boomer generation’s kids coming of age and leaving home. Certainly a quick survey of my street, including myself, indicates the population density has halved as teens have flown the coop. This will right itself in due course as the Boomers die or go into retirement homes.

    My previous job included a role in safety management for a company whose head office is in the city but has offices around the country. Here are some awkward facts that nobody wants to talk about:

    Cyclists have accidents. Lots of them. Our incident database showed that cycling was our No.1 cause of accidents, so we stopped employees cycling to meetings. Surprisingly almost none of the accidents involved cars – instead people cycle in the dark into sign posts, they slip on wet leaves, they get a wheel jammed in the gutter and go over the top, they cycle into parked cars. What’s more, a mate who is a Council employee tells me that Auckland Council has a similar accident experience and are hiding it because it is politically embarrassing (OIA request anyone?)

    Most offices cannot accommodate more cyclists because they haven’t got the shower facilities. Already we had a potential health hazard generated by large numbers cyclists using the few showers available and turning the shower/toilet facility into a rice paddy. It’s really hard and expensive to add shower facilities because they’re often located in the concrete core of the building next to services so cannot be modified.
