  1. Feel very concerned for what the liarbor party’s have ahead for Britain, but are they much worse than the Tory party?
    Possibly Christopher Luxon is not far above the liarbor party here in New Zealand thank goodness we have New Zealand First and ACT parties on board or we would see no difference between them.
    Have a good day out thereon matter what you do.

    • Lizzie, Labour in the UK have such a large majority that there effectively is no Opposition to them. As such arrogance will rule and they will rapidly piss the Voters off and become a 1 term Government.

      As to the country disappointment, Nude Nut, I think he will survive being a 1 Term PM and Coalition Government. This Government while not having a very large majority to not have a functioning Opposition. Here is why.

      The Leader of the Labour Party, a perpetual Whinger from Upper Hutt stated this week that Labour would not announce any Policies this year and if that is the case, then I doubt whether they will announce any well into next year. So when Hipkins and Labour stand up in Parliament and criticise the Coalition Government, you know they have no alternative, no alternative Policies to offer, no alternative choice for the Voter, no opinion to base their arguments on and as such, no validity in their criticism.

      If you do not have Policy to support, like Hipkins and Labour, you are but any empty vessel with no ballast about to roll over and sink in the first gust of wind and I can’t wait to hear the first rustle of the leaves.

  2. Quiet this morning.
    What’s for breakfast?
    I’m looking forward to one slice of frozen bread (toasted) and coffee (espresso).
    Any exotic breakfast plans for anyone today? (I can’t remember the last time I had a cafe breakfast….)

  3. New Zealand is doing rather poorly in the excess death stakes, over 15% still.
    2024 excess deaths

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AU0DxJ1vbmM&t=626s

    And as Geert van den Bossche has pointed out:

    “We are undoubtedly on the verge of a tsunami, where the steadily rising wave of vaccine-associated excess deaths will suddenly transition into a dramatic surge of severe disease enhancement in highly vaccinated populations. For those who don’t understand the immunological mechanisms behind these predictions, it suffices to say that Nature is unlikely to proceed with populations consisting of large cohorts of vaccine-debilitated individuals left unprotected by their immune system and lacking affordable access to safe and effective antivirals. Those who are healthy and unvaccinated will indeed not be affected.”

  4. Is John Tamihere about to get his comeuppance and is there subsequently joy to be had in TAH’s humble dwelling, “The Blowflies Retreat”.

    You see, Johnno’s cash cow, The Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency, has been told to re-tender for their Contracts to receive Government funding and then redistribute that funding to Maori Organisations the Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency and Johnno deems worthy of this largese.

    In Johnno’s case, the huge amount of money he retains to manage this Government money is obscene, but in the Link below, I see it is The Maori Party who are grizzling and complaining about the Government demanding that the Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency re-tender for their Government Contract. And who is the Maori Party President? John Tamihere. And who is the major funder of the Maori Party? John Tamihere. And who is the Chairman of The Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency? John Tamihere.

    This move by the Government, I take it is a legit and smart way to squeeze John Tamihere out of this Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency rort, but they should be prepared for the legal battle that Tamihere will subsequently launch.

    • imo the govt needs to introduce legislation to cap the incomes of board members and ceo of charities esp those recieving govt funding… after all thats what theyre there for, charity not personal enrichment. if theyre truly in it for the charity and helping of others then theyll have no worries at all recieving a generous remuneration package of say max 150k…. (think i just heard a loud scream from tamihere and rich iwi trusts)
      i also believe charities should have a limit of cash reserves and assets and only be tax exempt for the money actually given away for charitable purposes.

  5. My 12 year old son wanted a tattoo so i took him down the tattoo parlour. They refused to do it saying “he’s far too young to make an informed decision about something so permanent”
    So I took him to get gender reassignment surgery instead

  6. Go Le Pen

    ““If Emmanuel Macron wants to send troops to Ukraine and the prime minister is against it, then there are no troops sent to Ukraine. The prime minister has the final say,” Le Pen stated.

    Her party in power would also bar Kiev from using French-supplied weapons to conduct strikes on Russian soil, Le Pen said, arguing that the permission to do so makes Paris “co-belligerent” in the conflict.”

  8. I know this was discussed previously, but Labour’s landslide actually is only 34% of the vote. The NATs here got 38% but the MSM never declared that a “landslide”. Glad I don’t live in the UK. It’s fucked. Would not surprise me if the boats reverse course shortly…..

  9. The turnout for the UK elections was low, apparently but this analysis gives some interesting comparative figures to previous elections. The Labour total vote is down and the Conservative vote is cut in half. In general the voters are pissed off with the ruling class.

  10. Two goods friends, one of Greek ancestry and the other of French ancestry, were having a beer and discussing their heritage.

    The Greek said “The Greeks built the Parthenon and the Temple of Apollo!”, to which his friend replied “The French built the Eiffel Tower!”.

    The Greek replied “The Greeks introduced advanced mathematics to the world!”. His French friend said “It was the French (the Curies) that develped a vaccine to save many thousand lives!”

    Thinking a bit and then stating “It was the Greeks that introduced the concept of sex as a pleasurable activity!” His friend replied “That may be true, but it was the French that got women involved!”

  11. Looks like Luxon and Goldsmith have a battle on their hands and Melissa Lee might come out on the right side. Melissa was obviously told by Luxon to get the Labour bill or a close version of it through to help the media and she disagreed, so bully boy pushed her aside.
    Sean Plunkett has spoken to contacts at Meta and they have confirmed they will do the same as they did in Canada when NZ passes this media bill.
    When you have Chris Trotter and Maurice Willian\mson both using the word “dumb” to describe what they are doing then you know something is bad about the idea.

    • Canot argue but Meta and others are in effect stealing news created by others, if the same was done to Meta I bet *uckerberg would be suing. Whatever the global theft of news requires some kind of regulation or payment similar to exisiting arrangements between media organisation when they syndicate news stories.

  12. something else for us to sob and wail over, its almost as devestating as shortland street being cut to 3 nights… poor paddy gower was unsuccessful in getting funding for his tv program. im extremely distressed over this harsh news and whatever will poor paddy do to earn a crust now? aw he’ll be right, his booming book sales will keep him propped up////

    • Recently tried to open a savings account for a grandchild.
      They made me jump through every hoop they could think of with certificates for that and certified copies of this. They declined the certification until the JP attested they’d seen the person the passport belonged to and then that it was an exact copy of the document. Then they said I wasn’t allowed to do it unless I proved relationship with the child. I suppose that’s more certified birth certificates – and another delay tactic. 25 years of banking history and they still haven’t figured out I’m not a criminal.

      • PG, we had the dane drama when we went to start bank accounts for our kids… gave up and told the bank to go fuck themselves. ended up just opening a couple of new accounts in our joint bank account and named them one each for our kids.
        far easier and no bank bullshit, id, jumping through hoops etc plus we have full control still.
        if you open a proper account for your kids you have no control over them unless it was a joint account.

        my cousin had a good savings account that her parents had contributed to greatly over the years, when it got to her 16th bday and she wanted a car her father took her down to the bank to withdraw her money to buy a car she and my uncle had found that was in her price range…. she kept a straight face even as the teller was punching in her details to bring up her account.
        turns out the lil brat had went in years earlier withour her parents knowledge and obtained an eftpos card! emptied her account over a few years, almost all of it spent on buying top up cards for her and her friends cellphones.
        as you could imagine my scottish uncle seen red and absolutely flipped his shit, bout 12k gone which was a hell of alota money 22yrs ago.

  13. Cheese Rolls – a very popular item particularly the further south you go. Certainly a major fund raiser for schools as well.
    My question is – are they available in the North Island, do they sell well?

    • popular item…. pffft theyre a staple food here in the deep south.
      my good mate who moved down from jaffa land had never ever heard of them, his mind boggled and was picturing a big cheese slice rolled up with filling inside…. nah bro, grated cheese, onion soup mix smeared on some bread, rollitup and grill them yum things. nup hes not a fan, exhibit 8374 that all jaffas are faggots.

  14. Treaty revisionists have a new version called The TittyTitty. Fair enough. They are Stone Age racists after all.

      • but maori oral history is 100% accurate because its recorded in song/////
        my ngai tahu mate was telling me some maori history and events they exp before they even came to nz is retold through songs that last days to recite… now tell me how accurate that must be with zero written language for centuries, almost a millenium and its several days of wailing and gibberish bullshit.

        fwiw his synopsis of the songs tells a story of craziness in the world, something big happening and they had to flee their homelands and thats when they set sail and found nz…. but yeah chinese whispers applies big time to cuzi bro history.

        • Yes oral history is an interesting one. Maori oral history says that a church in Rangowhia in the Waikato was burnt down along with women and children sheltering inside during the Waikato war. However there is documented evidence of both churches in the settlement still standing after the conflict.

          • maori oral history also says that there were other races here when they arrived but the bros of today write that off as bullshit yet believe maori went to antarctica and that pre euro maori were a peaceful loving race that were super resourceful and master conservationists and explorers.

            if history isnt written down then its exaggerated bullshit at best. maori probs had a written language at one point but rid themselves of it so no one could keep a record of all the shameful things they done.

  15. how shit has this country become that a ministry forces the closure of a kindy because they refuse to indoctrinate lil kids with maori bullshit.

    thats pretty fucking appalling really, how many hori kids even attend that place? probs piss all otherwise there wouldve agrieved parents in the media long before now. it looks like the ministry didnt recieve any complaints from parents, maybe only a few native consultants who missed out on a few suitcases of cash to tick a few boxes.

    fuck this country and all the clack bunt bullshit forced upon citizens in the name of wokeness and virtue signalling.

  16. If there is one thing that was remarkable about Housing Minister Chris Bishop’s plan to “flood” the market with housing unveiled this week, it is not how it differed from the status quo, but how it reinforced it.

    Bishop leaned on the National Policy Statement for Urban Development (NPS-UD) for his reforms, extending it in one key way (councils will now be forced to live-zone 30 years of feasible development capacity at once, rather than just three at a time) and clarifying it in others. There’s a layer of irony here: the NPIS-UD was drafted by Phil Twyford, whom National pilloried during his tenure as Housing Minister in the Ardern Government (although the NPS-UD was published after Twyford lost that portfolio).

    Clearly describes that there is no difference between Labour and the Nats.

    • Another clique of chooks with in the Labour Party that has come into land / roost.
      These ones will know how to beat-up the “yes ministers”

      …. Jonathan Ashworth, who had been expected to serve in Keir Starmer’s Labour government, lost his seat to independent Shockat Adam, one of at least four pro-Gaza candidates to win. …..

      ….. Other Labour lawmakers only just held on to their seats, as they were challenged by pro-Gaza candidates.
      Wes Streeting, Labour’s health chief and a senior member of the party, won by just 528 votes over British-Palestinian Leanne Mohamad in Ilford North.
      Jess Philipps beat the Workers Party candidate Jody McIntyre by just 693 votes and then struggled to give a speech amid booing and jeering by pro-Palestinian activists. ….

      https://www.reuters.com/world/uk/pro-gaza-candidates-dent-labours-uk-election-victory-2024-07-05/

      …. the Muslim Vote organisation, which encourages British Muslims to vote for specific candidates it has approved, claimed victory.

      The organisation lauded the five “brilliant” independents, and also boasted that its “unprecedented” influence on the election results had also led to “slashed” majorities for several other Labour figures. …..
      https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2024/07/05/pro-palestinian-mps-become-sixth-largest-party-labour-loss/

      Are they smelling blood, an aspect of power & further advantage, privilege?

      This is a report from an Australian refocusing on how this would play out in Aussie politics.
      Bear in mind that as he says, only 3% are muslim in Australia at this stage.

      ….. Taking the UK results and superimposing on this the equally brave assumption that preferences from fringe right and left candidates could be harnessed and held back from Labor, then Labor MPs from strong Muslim seats such as Werriwa, Macarthur, Holt, Barton and Lalor could lose in 2025
      https://www.afr.com/politics/federal/the-muslim-vote-was-a-disaster-for-starmer-and-could-be-for-albanese-20240705-p5jrfm

      It will be in part, how much the Labour Party in Britain & now Australia, will have to appease.

      In Western Australia Fatima Payman has crossed the floor against Labour.
      Noises now being made to have a supportive muslim party.

      In New Zealand, I do not know, but bear in mind, there only has to be 1 electorate seat go muslim, and then in combo with a Muslim Party, so that the Party vote brings in more.
      Maybe a few more years down the track, but that light of that oncoming train is more than showing up.

  17. A National spokesperson said the kindergarten closure was an “operational matter for the ministry”.

    But
    ACT leader David Seymour says shutting down a Manawatū kindergarten appears to be “acting against the will of the community”.
    Country Kindy will close on Monday after it was stripped of its licence by the Ministry of Education. Parents were left disappointed.
    The ministry says the kindergarten lost its licence because it failed to comply with conditions.

    ACT leader David Seymour says a Ministry of Education decision to shut down a Manawatū kindergarten appears to be “acting against the will of the community”.

    In comments made to Stuff, Seymour said he would be asking ministry officials to explain why they were closing Country Kindy, when he met with them on Monday.

    “I am very concerned by this action. It would appear that the ministry is acting against the will of the community, rather than upholding standards on its behalf,“ he said.
    A 2022 Education Review Office report found children’s culture, language and identity at the kindergarten were not consistently reflected in the curriculum.
    It also found learning partnerships with tamariki and whānau Māori were not evident, and the kindergarten had not made clear progress with previous recommendations.

    so ya don’t force bullshit down their throats and that doesn’t suit the clack bunts.

  18. Etna and Stromboli Sicilian volcanoes erupt simultaneously, prompting evacuation warnings
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/07/06/sicilian-volcanoes-erupt-simultaneously-prompting-evacuation-warnings/

    Eruptions from two of the world’s most active volcanoes in Sicily have prompted authorities to warn residents to be ready for evacuation.

    Etna, located on the Italian island’s east coast, has seen intense activity over the past few days, while Stromboli, located off the northern Sicilian coast, spilled lava into the sea.
