  1. My first first at YSB.

    Good morning all as I watch the Black Caps try to wrest control back from the Windies.

        • NZ won by 5 runs with one over (6 balls) to go. Boult was right on the boundary when he caught it so if had gone over his head or out of reach for 6 Windies would have won. Alternatively had he hit it along the ground for one run they would haver had the 6 balls to score 5 runs and the batsman on strike was on 101 so a Windies win would have been likely.

          Sorry this is late but I was sleeping after working from 10pmuntil 5am and then watching the end of the game. Better late than never I suppose in case youhaven’t se en the result.

  2. The real climate emergency – the one that no politician is talking about

    The coming mini-ice age! And dear old, adorable Greta “Rainman” Thunberg isn’t talking about this because it’s got nothing at all to do with anything mankind can influence – so there’s no political gain in it.

    As the climate hysteria gets ever-more shrilly ramped up (always a sign that the left is losing an argument) I’m increasingly amazed at the lack of common sense portrayed by the alarmists. The temperature of the planet is directly and irrevocably linked to one thing – the hottest thing in our solar system – the FUCKING SUN!

    And unfortunately, the sun is taking a little nap right now and is cooling down a bit. How do we know, well the sun is so quiet at present there’s no sunspots – and there hasn’t been any sunspots for 34 days now. The last time there were this many sunspot free days in a row it was so cold the Thames froze over during the 1800s in the middle of the mini-ice age of Charles Dickens time when there was snow all around all winter. The freaky thing is once you start looking for data (you know, untampered recordings of factual observations, not statistically adjusted to fit the narrative bullshit numbers) the level of the sun’s activity is trending in a very disturbing direction. NASA has just announced the next solar cycle is going to have also very low solar activity (they disguised this by saying how terrific it’s going to be for space travel) but if the next cycle keeps trending down we’re going to be heading for solar conditions like the Maunder minimum of 1645-1715 with even longer, colder winters.

    Looking at the very cold winters the northern hemisphere has experienced in the past few years it’s hard not to start to get a little worried about it. The growing zones migrate a little further towards the equator during solar minima, usually accompanied by regime change and famines in times gone by. I wonder why China is making such massive investments in 3rd world countries that are further south than they are – hmm. The recent cold and wet is wreaking havoc with wheat, corn and barley planting across the USA and Canada. It’s why those bloody annoying glaciers in Greenland have been growing recently instead of following the narrative and retreating up the valleys. It’s why the US Park Rangers have been quietly removing the “Beware Glacier Melting” signs from Glacier National Park. It’s why the Arctic has been frustratingly refusing to be ice-free over the past few years the way that well-known climate scientist Leonardo Di Caprio prophesised.

    I wonder why the lying, whoring, bought and paid for MSM aren’t giving this once in a 500 year actual climate event any coverage? Why isn’t caring, kind, socialist Cindy doing anything to make electricity cheaper so we can keep warm during the longer, colder winters that are going to be here within 5-10 years? If you want to know more, you can find stuff using this search terms “Grand Solar Minimum”.

      • Very good point Alice. I’ve been watching this issue for a while now and the action of this government in going after the oil industry and milk and meat production fits all too well with my ongoing theory that all extremist left wing governments are only interested in ramping up poverty. The combination of:
        – longer colder winters
        – fuel poverty caused by a hostile business environment to the big oil companies
        – distressed and over-burdened food production systems
        could end up creating a lot of hardship, exactly the setting that is needed to bring in totalitarian socialism.

        Never think they’re stupid, the extremist left are far more strategic than the right. They can play a long game that runs for generations and all they need is to properly come out on top once and then you need a revolution on the streets to get rid of the fascists. We see this in France and in Venezuala and we’re tracking right to follow suit.

    • My dad keeps bitching it is freezing cold in the middle of summer in Colorado. The Greenland ice sheet is like a mile thick, and of course you get snowmelt and rivers flowing in the heat of the northern summer. The MSM shows one photo of dog sleds “in the slush” and millions believe the world is frying. It’s called summertime idiots. What suckers. I do feel bad for the school kid protesters being brainwashed. Yell at the sky some more kids!

  3. Separation of powers and all of that but should Judges be excluded from criticism by politicians? Who else can really hold them to account? This is about fraud and not being able to see into the future, but a lot of the future actions of these perpetrators can be foretold.

    That is the case for many perpetrators of crime and especially child abuse. Judges should be predictive because otherwise, they are not preventing future harms.

    The other argument is about name suppression and the easy ability to change names to escape detection.

      • Agree. The freedom from ctiticism goes with them behaving honourably and working to the spirit of the law and not seeking to subvert it – the way they have with the 3 strikes legislation. The judge got it badly wrong with Harrison and a lot of harm resulted because he too fell for the bullshit of a remorseless liar criminal. Judges have one job – to show good fucking judgment – all too often not the case.

      • It appears that we have many activist Judges in place now and that is a damn shame.
        It always seems to be the left leaning judges that are swayed away from interpreting the law as they should and add some subtle ,political, twist to a decision.

      • Dud judges should be held accountable by all sections of society!
        Including the man in the street!
        If the pollies are saying something then the court and law system should be listerning!
        Judges should not be above the law, but be part of it!
        If a judge is dud, sack them and not shuffle them of to some quiet corner to continue with shit decissions.
        It should not be a job for life, as it is now!

  4. The message re Climate Change I am trying to get out there is this.
    If you really believe in Climate Change (I don’t) and carbon as being the cause of it.
    Then playing with NZs 1/2 a percent share is a waste of time.
    The only way to really reduce carbon gases production is to reduce the world’s population.
    The millions of new babies in India, China, Pakistan, Nigeria, Uganda, The philipines etc that will want a car, a tv, heat and light etc etc.

    • There are ways our population can be controlled so a sustainable future is possible and its in our hands so failure will result in nature imposing a more brutal method of control. The potentially dramatic reduction of primary grains from the Wheat belt in midwest US & Canada have ramifications of huge proportion and MSM don’t report it, perhaps they don’t know were the midwest is or the part grains feature in food.

      • Thanks for posting that brilliant video Alice. This is why the left are making derogatory comments towards ‘pale, stale male’ white men. They want to discredit and sideline those who are currently the few with any real technical and expert qualifications who voice their opposition to man-made climate change.

  5. Give this man a DB

    Once again showing that diversity is the new stupid! Dead Moron Walking Theresa May fired this guy for being so sensible, allowing the continuation of feminists’ “a la carte” approach to equality (whereby feminists pick and choose the things they want to be treated equally on, ignoring eg being outraged that men on average die so much earlier than women do and thinking that men should always pay the bill at a restaurant).

    The whole thing smells seriously dodgy. At a black tie event where UK Finance Minister was speaking – a smug left wing climate activist marches boldly up the speaker. Another government Minister grabs the smirking ginga bitch firmly and frog marches here out

    Apparently, this was a vile example of how sexist and violent the male patriarchy are.

    FFS – in an environment in the UK where politicians are no longer safe in public, where it’s common practice for milkshakings (straight after stupid, fat, old hag Jo Brand has been exhorting substituting acid for milkshakes in attacks on politicians). At a venue where all the guests had to go through a security cordon and metal detectors – but apparently an uninvited guest can just swan in. I think Mark Field acted sensibly and heroically and he deserves support and recognition for acting in a potentially dangerous situation.

    This is the new game for the see you next Tuesdays on the left, push the boundaries of acceptable behaviour using what they think of as victim classes (think this bitch, think Greta “Rainman” Thunberg) and then when reasonable people act reasonably to prevent unreasonable behaviour accuse them of one of the stock, standard identity politics crimes.

    If Mark Field had done this to a man, I seriously doubt there would have been any problem in it, but as it’s a woman. Hold the press – suspend the “We have to be treated the same as men in all things” rule and cry sexism. If women can do anything men can, then the can survive being walked out of an event they weren’t invited to where they presented a possibility of a threat.

    And fuck you Theresa May – worst PM of all time, still trying to fuck things up as you walk out the door. You just rewarded the left, you just gave them another victory for offence politics.

  8. Maori underachievement
    Over the past few weeks I have seen quite a few articles in our press by academics who have done some research and found that the cause of Maori crime, Maori underachievement, Maori bad health etc etc is
    Colonialism.
    It really get me angry
    One – that we are paying for this shit to be done!
    Two – that they try to blame something that happened 200 years ago
    Three – They fail to blame Maori themselves, who like to Ape Black American culture, like sitting on the couch, like violence, etc etc.
    Maori have to up their own game.

    • They do. There are several Wananga that work very hard to enrol and educate Māori, who really care about their students and getting them into and completing their study. Not for the money, but for the people.

      Blaming colonialism is as stupid as putting all Māori in the same bucket. Colonialism is what provided all the universities, health care and prisons.

      The media cannot blame the real culprits though – the successive governments that have created intergenerational welfare dependents in the name of votes. That is at the heart of this.

      • And the teachers, I come from a family of teachers, teachers should be paid by results, maybe schools should be set up on ability, not age? There should be remedial reading classes perhaps a whole class dedicated to that.

        Schools used to be everyone in the same class which allowed those gifted students to be able to do work of older children and the reverse because there was a range of resources and the children were taught at their level, not the supposed norm.

        I am fortunate with my children and grandchildren regarding reading and comprehension, I believe those abilities come through the mothers lol. I guess that I can only take credit for my three then.

      • Welfare reform, making the underclass take responsibility for their lives and well being, is perhaps the single most important measure the government could take to help lift the Maori’s and other’s game. It won’t happen of course because it would be a vote loser for socialism.

        • Time is irrelevant when victimhood is your excuse. I assume Maori children were better educated in the 60’s and 70’s before the TOW victimhood gravy train left the station. I don’t remember Maori kids at our school being illiterate. Failure to attend school is another barrier they put in front of themselves to achieve the basics of education.

    • This whole country and all it’s inhabitants have a real problem with personal responsibility, a situation created by successive governments who have fostered attitudes that individuals are always victims of some bigger evil which they can’t control.
      A few examples:
      Gambling = casinos fault as they tempted you
      Hit by a train = crossing was dangerous
      Flee from police in a vehicle = they made you panic
      Swim in dangerous conditions = should be more warning signs
      Addicted to drugs = no one provided me rehab services
      Beating your kids = CYFS fault and government did not provide parental training
      Borrowed to much money = lender should not have offered it to me
      Destroy a rental property = what’s the issue as owner has insurance

      I could go on forever but point being if you allow people to constantly make excuses for their failures and allow these to go unchallenged then what you see today is the result.

  9. I just had a look over at cuck-boy Farrar’s ‘0nce was a warriors blog’ and yesterday he was having a crack at Commander in Chief, the elected president of the USA, D J Trump (so, not killary).

    The sad softcock was having a go at Trump by comparing him to the one term Pres, dithering peanut farmer, Carter.
    Carter put all his effort into fluffing about overseas and ignoring issues at home. He failed on all counts.
    He stuffed up badly over Iran and was made a fool of when Reagan secured the hostages release on his first day.
    Trump is more aligned to Reagan style, not Carter.

    Farrar is out of step with the real world and even with his own blog posters.
    I wont waste your time with a link.
    For someone who claims to be a follower of politics, Farrar is dead wrong so often.
    It looks like he just watches TV like Cindy or reads the NZ newspapers to ‘be informed’.

    If this is the brains and direction (with Bridges, Bennett, Goodfellow, Adams et al) of the National party- completely out of touch and refusing to even try to connect to the real world -no wonder they FUBAR.

        The scary thing about the drone attack was the Iranians firing their missile close to an airliner in the same airspace. The missile could have easily latched onto the plane instead of the drone. Then the wowsers would have something to moan about. They would blame Trump for having his drone there, thereby causing the plane to be shot down.

      • Yes, my considerable disdain for Farrar grew even more (there are no limits) when he suggested that perhaps President Trump is not a real man if he does not go ahead and murder 15o people when he received more information.

        And yet, Farrar jumped down a rabbit hole when one third that number were murdered by a foreign national in NZ 3 months ago.

        Farrar remains a supporter of the dreadful Killary Clinton who proclaimed upon the murder of Colonel Qaddafi ‘We came, we saw, he died’. This was a country with better healthcare than the United States, secular, and an education system that took adult literacy from avg 60% in 1984 to 84% 20 years later.
        Now it is f*cked.

        It looks like Farrar is a warmonger who likes to see the destruction of countries.

It is up to the patient to mix and administer the ‘cocktail’. If they decide not to go ahead,or die of natural causes, an appointed person will return the unopened box.

          There was a black market for various equipment including weapons. A madam in an Auckland brothel was known to have possession of a Tommy gun. She foolishly showed it to the wrong person and as a result did a stretch in the big house.

    • Well damn. The flavour was good, but that was far too much liquid for the tagine so it kept on spitting out the sides. With mama bear being fairly fastidious, I had to open it every three-quarter of an hour or so to scoop out a bit of juice and save it in a bowl. It wasn’t as soft as I wanted it.

      Next time will be better.

  14. Auckland Council pushes for private fireworks ban
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/392734/auckland-council-pushes-for-private-fireworks-ban
    “Auckland Council is hoping to garner support from other councils in an effort to ban the sale of private fireworks.
    In February, the council voted to support a ban on the private use of fireworks.
    Auckland councillor Cathy Casey said there was overwhelming support for the ban from the public of Auckland. Over 90 percent of submissions said they would support a ban on the private sale and use of fireworks Casey said”.

    The authoritarians at Goff Palace are on the offensive again trying to ban things which upset their sensitivities and true to form are being dishonest with facts to try and support their case.
    Just for low IQ people like Cathy Casey 90% of submissions supporting the ban does not show overwhelming public support in Auckland for a ban.
    All it shows is out of the people who bothered submitting there was overwhelming public support but to extrapolate that support to the wider public of Auckland is complete nonsense and frankly if a politician is not aware of this they are either duplicious or retarded.
    You choose.

      My Uncle in Invercargill told me in the days Invercargill was dry area (1950s) they would commission someone with a truck to go north young man and buy in bulk supplies.
      The problem he said was they would get in 3 months worth and in going to collect it, it would be consumed on the spot.

      This is a Dallas Buyers Club opportunity.
      Pool resources and buy it in, of , say Morrinsville.
      It is just going to piss people off so as you say, low IQ, or more like low EQ.

    I’m amused that “intolerance will not be tolerated”. There’s a certain amount of intolerance in that.

    From here. I still don’t understand this angst – he is expressing a view based on his religion.

    (a) If you don’t believe as he does, then it’s just words and there is no truth to them. No harm is done.

    (b) If you do believe as he does, then why would that perspective of the truth bother you? He’s either giving you a message you need to hear if you really believe or, see (a).

    The teacup is not large enough for all the storms these woke fools are blowing.

    Then I went to a synagogue dressed as Hitler. They were quite cross & told me to leave, politely but firmly.

    And then, nine kilometres from my nearest Mosque, I had a bacon sandwich.

  18. Have the BBC news folk turned to comedy?
    Iain Dale turns up to interview Boris Johnson in bright red socks and thinks he’s on a winner asking about the police house-call gossip.
    He gets boo-ed by the crowd twice for deviating from relevant political questions with Johnson assisting in quiet ending the crowd:
    “Mr Dale was jeered by members of the audience at one point during the exchange, but Mr Johnson responded by telling the crowd “not to boo the great man”.

    Undeterred, TV3 breathlessly serves us up their misguided gotcha report to New Zealanders who care even less. Idiots.

  19. Bit of light reading for y’all..courtesy of Hobsons Pledge.

    “State housing to become ‘our Maori village’”

    If “kainga” means “Maori village” and “ora” means “our”, renaming state housing as “our Maori village”, as the Kainga Ora–Homes and Communities Bill intends, appears an accurate name for housing that is largely occupied by Maori families.

    Apparently, 35 percent of state house tenants identify as Maori, 27 percent as Pacific peoples, and 36 percent as European, according to the 2017 Housing New Zealand annual report.

    However, there is more to the Kainga Ora–Homes and Communities Bill than a new name in “the language”. According to the bill’s explanatory note, the new entity will have two key roles, being a public housing landlord, and leading and co-ordinating urban development projects.

    To bring this about, the bill:

    disestablishes the Housing New Zealand Corporation,
    puts Housing New Zealand’s functions and assets into Kainga Ora–Homes and Communities,
    repeals the Housing Corporation Act 1974,
    puts some of the functions and assets related to KiwiBuild that currently sit in the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development into Kainga Ora–Homes and Communities.
    The bill recognises Maori interests by:

    giving the board a duty to uphold the Treaty of Waitangi and its principles, to understand and apply Te Ture Whenua Maori Act 1993, and to engage with Maori and understand Maori perspectives,
    requiring understanding and support of Maori aspirations relating to urban development,
    requiring identification and protection of Maori interests and have early and meaningful engagement with Maori, and offer Maori opportunities to participate in urban development,
    preventing Kainga Ora–Homes and Communities from using Housing New Zealand’s exemptions in Treaty settlement legislation to override Rights of First Refusal.
    There you have it. The Treaty and its principles will be front and centre of state housing, the development and management of which will focus on Maori interests and aspirations, while the rights to redevelop state house assets will be overtaken by the rights of first refusal by Treaty settlement entities to profit from any redevelopments.

    One curious aspect of this bill is ironic. While the third “treaty principle” on Justice Cooke’s original principles list is clear that unreasonable restrictions on the right of a duly elected government to follow its chosen policy are off limits, the prioritising of iwi over government on the rights of first refusal on surplus state housing assets does just that — imposes an unreasonable restriction on the government.

    The other curious aspect is that there has not been a squeak from Labour’s Maori caucus about the obvious cultural appropriation that appears in the virtue-signalling new name. Does this mean that the Maori caucus supports the white-liberal fetish of adopting Maori names to make an entity look correct?
    Submissions have been called for. The deadline is July 11. Go here to make your submission opposing this restrictive, virtue-signalling bill. https://www.parliament.nz/en/pb/sc/make-a-submission/document/52SCEN_SCF_BILL_88098/k%C4%81inga-ora-homes-and-communities-bill

  20. Just been looking t power prices. Had a good reason. Put in a new machine and it uses a bit. So asked the manufacturer about insulating it. The reply was why would you. Uses heating elements.
    so thought I’d check around.
    Philadelphia where it is made, power costs for commercial 6-7 cents per KWH. For households 12-13 cents per KH and industrial 1.52cents.
    Now most of it is powered by coal.
    Here average is 25-30 cents.

    Time to go back to coal.

      I think there’s a fish hook in that argument V2. Their power is measured in 1000 watt parcels at 110V whereas ours is 1000w @ 240V. We get more bang for our buck.

      But we’re going to need coal generation & soon. Especially with log fires being banned & cute little electric cars which no-one wants being forced onto us.

      “Jacinda is lovely, don’t say mean things about her” or
      “Andrew Little is a champion, be nice to him!” or
      “Phil Twyford is doing his best, respect him – he’s better than you are”
      etc.

      It’d be nice to have one that is willing to debate the issues, but I think they’ll find a tough audience here.

    • Lefties are only allowed to virtue signal. A sense of humour is no longer acceptable as they are afraid someone will take offense at your joke and report the attempt at humour as a lack of empathy and insensitivity to their FB friends. A fall from grace in front of your lefty mates is fatal to your standing in the hierarchy.
