    Not just confined to clutha, massive shortage throughout southland and otago. How are other regions fairing?

    The outfit ive been contracting to have been looking for a couple of casuals since january and a full timer for the last 2 months. Only career acc bludgers and slobs straight from winz office have applied.
    Mates in dairy have been advertising since november an now with a few days left of the season they face the new season with a 50% team.
    3 of the local trucking outfits have many rigs parked up, 1 is 9 drivers short and are offering to fully train and pay for new drivers to upskill all the way to class 5 licence and still zero takers.

    Thanks cindy you curbed unemployment by shutting off migrant workforce whilst creating the largest brain drain for decades… dunno if you realise that workers are needed to support the economy youre so intent on destroying.

    • It’s not confined to Southland though I can understand the reluctance of prospective employees to sign up to pull cows’ tits during winter in the far south. We noticed, during our recent trip to the Far North, signs outside businesses everywhere along the route advertising for employees. Most were labouring jobs though Class 5 drivers, as always, were in demand.

      Either welfare pays too well or working for a living isn’t sufficiently rewarded. Take your pick but that’s what has caused the present problems.

      • Many of the roles around here are paying 28-30 an hour with no exp needed so pretty reasonable i thought.

        Not winter milking either nasska, wintering then start calving in august and they pay very very well on their farm, bout 20k above most other slave driving contract/share milkers.
        Our neighbour milks 1400cows and has been down 2 staff for almost all last season, sux to be them glad i got out of the industry a few years back… not enough money in the world to draw me back, both neighbours have tried haha.

        The great thing about a labour shortage is if a new employer sux you can quit at lunchtime and be in a new job before dark.

    • This labour shortage of reasonable staff, is going to cause a lot of stress, particularly where livestock is involved.
      If managers, contract milkers, etc. are short of staff then they will probably try to do a fair bit of it themselves.
      This is going to cause “burn out” and major stresses & strains with in their families.

      In the mean time some 4 year degree clip board tick boxer, whether from regional council, some ethical animal system will swan in and add even more pressure, instead of asking, what can I do to help? & doing it.

      I think this is another way for greens & labour to stop all livestock farming.
      However their vegan mung beans, etc.. will also not be planted or harvested or transported by carbon fuels.

      Sort of good news at the moment, as I hear there is a very good high yielding crop of Kumara, being harvested, so the comfort food of roast kumara or chips 🙂

        • A target enriched environment for that ‘stone’.

          Often with a “component” of “free milk” “free meat” “free fire wood”, that can be worked in.
          Room for a vege garden, and maybe some fruit trees.

          • Those perks rarely exist now, may get eat if lucky, if your vat has HALO then no taking milk, many now charge rent and not just the tax. Many farms now dont allow pets and children are confined to the house yard.

            Many of the attractions to fsrming have been phased out, welcome to the corporste farming future.

            • You are right and it has not really improved life.

              It is becoming corporate farming, that with the size, can cope with all the extra costs and a lot of time involved, to sent compliance updates, and monitoring to local, regional governmental authorities.
              .
              All pushed & supported ongoing and ever changing & demanding governmental regulations.
              .
              Like the tax ones that required farmers to charge a market rental for a house, or pay more tax under “fringe benefit tax”.
              .
              Then those “health & safety” laws & regulations, can be so costly for any farm in breach of them, that it would be less of hassle to have the kids play tennis on the road.
              .
              HALO seems like another I spy “big brother” in the name of “food safety”, so that they can know what time milking starts and finishes, to track every litre of milk & its temperature.
              .
              No pets, so probably not even able to keep a few chooks for eggs or meat for some cross type disease.
              .
              Big brother will own you,,

              • Simpleton, yup halo is fucking spy tech its a total over reach. Even farm owners now over reach and go to far, the last farm owners i contract milked for had 3 farms side x side, last year they all got fully kitted out with cameras AND microphones… they could watch and listen to anything going on in the 3 dairy sheds, tanker pads, calf sheds, workshops etc. The cameras i can understand but listening in to conversations WTF?
                Btw when i was there we werent allowed chooks or pigs, barely allowed a dog only i was 1st person in 15yrs to have a dog on the farm and only allowed it as they headhunted me for the job so i had a bit of leverage.

                Some farms around here the staff are on camera the moment the leave their house and all fully gps tracked, fuck that i wouldnt work for a bunch of untrusting cunts like that.

    Allowing corporations of any size to have so much power in the political realm proves how ineffective our government truly is in doing what it is supposed to do – protect the rights of the PEOPLE as opposed to the corporations. For example, does a business have the right to MANDATE all its employees SUBMIT their bodies to an experimental genetic modification injection in order to keep their jobs? No it does not. This violates the first principal of the Nuremburg Code which states you can only perform a medical experiment on someone if that person has given their INFORMED CONSENT. I would also add this also screams coercion. Top that off with the fact that on and prior to April 20, 2021, OSHA stated that an injury/death to an employee caused by such a mandate would allow the employee to hold the company responsible. However, about a month later OSHA suddenly changed that long-held standard so companies can no longer be held liable – basically giving your employer control over your body should you, of course, desire to keep your job. Any government that allows this type of tyranny and control by a corporation over an individual is a government that is no longer representative of the people and must be abolished by the people who pay them to represent their interests – NOT the interests of the corporations.

  4. A photo of Taranaki Maunga has been named one of the best images of the Milky Way this year.

    The shot from Larryn Rae of Shadow & Shade is among 25 pictures showcased in the Milky Way Photo of the Year competition by travel photography blog Capture the Atlas.

    Rae, who is Auckland based but was raised in New Plymouth, described the photo as “one of the most challenging shots” he has ever captured.

    “It required climbing for four hours in 70kmh winds to reach the ice summit of Fanthams Peak – a volcano on the side of Mt Taranaki.

    “Well,” he said, “we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub.”
    “Oh, I understand,” Bon said, “A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup.”

  7. New press release from COLFO

    Crims Treated Better Than Licenced Firearm Owners – COLFO
    Friday, 28 May 2021, 11:28 am
    Press Release: NZ Council Of Licensed Firearms Owners

    A recent case before Dunedin District Court shows the law treats licenced and responsible firearm owners worse than criminals, says the Council of Licenced Firearms Owners (COLFO).

    This week Gary Pani Amoroa avoided prison for a raft of drug and illegal firearms charges. Instead, he was sentenced to 12 months’ home detention and ordered to complete 200 hours of community work.

    In contrast, new laws about to come into force will imprison a licensed firearm owner for two years if they forget to update their address details on an online register.

    COLFO spokesperson Hugh Devereux-Mack says the new firearms laws will treat criminals like Amoroa more leniently than firearms owners who accidentally commit minor infractions.

    “It is ridiculous that a criminal found with drugs and illegal firearms in his possession can avoid prison, while a licence-holder forgetting to update a form can be locked up for up to two years,” Devereux-Mack says.

  8. Small communities across Auckland get hit with big rate rise to join the rat race
    Basically they having to front up with a share of the rates needed to fund the area. Had it cheap till now and still use ratepayer provided services for nix.
    Despite all the noise and shouting down in Tuaranga this is our problem as well.
    Those that live in the county but work and play ion the city get a free ride on the TCC ratepayer. The we wonder why it is that we can’t pay for the services the TCC ratepayers deserve without having ahuge rate increase.
    Happens in the Waikato as well.
    All those lifestyles living the dream on other ratepayers coin.
    Not unlike beneficiaries.

    Going to happen here as well.
    High-end Hawke’s Bay properties, for a long time limited to out-of-towners with their Auckland or Wellington property dollars, are now heading back into local hands.

    “There’s good money in the local economy, so we’ve got local people taking advantage of the low interest rates,” says James Macpherson, Bayleys principal for Gisborne, Hawke’s Bay and Wairarapa.

    “There are more buyers than vendors, with cashed-up farmers coming into town to live. There’s work across the spectrum, not just agriculture, so we do have buyers selling up in Wellington and moving here for more vitamin D in their lives, plus some Aucklanders.”

    Macpherson says sales over $3 million are more common than they were in past years, with two alone in March this year.

    • The system of rating isn’t fair. It needs to be more along the lines of user-pays. If you own an expensive house but are a single old-age pensioner, why should you pay more rates than someone in a shack with a family of six? I’ve just spent 16 years paying full rates on a section. How does that work?

      • As Lord Mayor of Ao tear rower I declare:-

        -One rates bill gives one vote on council elections.
        -Local tax per people on the property. (Poll tax if you like)
        -Rates bill per land to be no more than 40% of the Council income.
        -The rest- 60% made up from per capita ‘rates’ and selling council services.

        The whole idea of a a widow in her 80s in a house in Mt Albert valued today at $2 million when she and her husband bought it for a couple thousand pounds more than 50 years ago paying more rates than a family house with 10 people in Mangere is absurd.
        It is NOT leadership to allow this nonsense and inequity to continue.
        From the 1980s we have hear ‘user pays’ but this is so far from it, it may as well have been said on Jupiter.

        The family house is using sports fields, subsidised transport – buses and trains, libraries.
        I would hazard a guess their rubbish collection is a hell of a lot more that one lil ol’ lady.
        Those KFC buckets take up room.

  9. Ardern’s administration is now borrowing $3,458,904 each hour – expecting to pile on $100 million in additional net crown debt by 2025.

    Grant Robertson’s borrowing now totals almost $64,000 for every Kiwi household. All of this will have to be paid off, with interest, by taxpayers in the decades to come. And if interest rates return to the long run average, God help us.’

    National’s Shadow Treasurer Andrew Bayly also expressed frustration, stating: ‘We are staring down losses for the next five years. We need a plan to grow the economy, to get us back in surplus sooner so we can be prepared for the next inevitable shock, whether that is a natural disaster or a trading disruption.

    • The thing is, it shouldn’t be about what you need to do to be in government. That’s what the current misfits have done; sold the dopes a whole lot of bullshit promises, which they had no intention of keeping, just to be in power. Do you think they would have won at the election if they said they were going to introduce a capital gains tax, teach white privilege in schools, remove interest decuctability on rental mortgages, change the name of the country by stealth, get rid of the migrant work force, freeze the pay of public servants, etc.
      I want to be able to vote for a party whose core beliefs, vision and principles for making NZ a better country, and a better place to live for its people, align with mine.

  11. Dr Lawrence Palevsky explains very clearly the dangers of spike protein and the possibility that the vaccinated may actually make the non vaccinated sick. Dynamite stuff!

    https://www.americasfrontlinedoctors.org/frontline-news/can-vaccinated-people-make-the-unvaccinated-sick-watch-dr-palevsky-explain

    “Dr. Lawrence Palevsky spoke in an interview about the mechanics of spike protein shedding: “When studies are done on injections that are thought to be vaccine, we sometimes need 7, 10, or even 15 years to really understand what the injection does to the body, and what it does to those around us.
    And so, there’s automatically this assumption that when the authorities say these injections are safe, that we actually have adequate data and adequate observational data to understand whether or not these injections are safe.

    “The bottom line is, we don’t have enough data to understand safety.” “

      • I think the motivation for perpetuating these frauds is that it creates a new paradigm for investment and consumerism.
        “I have to buy an EV now, to save the planet!” (That sort of emotional non-logic.)

        Q: Why do we have “style and fashion”?
        A: To promote the purchase and consumption of new stuff (even when the old stuff is still useable).

        Therefore, this whole “low-carbon society” movement is a way to get consumers to buy new stuff and throw out the old (but still functional) stuff. If that isn’t wasteful then I don’t know what is.

      • Fortunately the helicopter pilots rallied and got the people off who could be saved.

        The cops were, as usual, late and uninformed.

        Probably the only good thing the pigs have done in the last 15 years was to remove the cretin cop in charge at the time who was going to go after the rescue helicopter pilots.
        That was about the third or fourth day in.

        Of course the top pig then was the convicted drunk, Mike Bush.
        What an unbelievable cretin he was (is) .

        ..which is a variation of horse face.

        Interesting that Bob Jones has a go at the media- rightly so.
        That was a classic case of the NZ media reporting 36 hours late while waiting for their ramblings to be approved in Molesworth St.
        The Australians and Brits actually covered it quicker. More than a day earlier.

        The NZ media filth (is there any other type? ) were clearly under instructions to drag their feet and keep down the number of deaths as long as possible.
        In fact, to call that scabby mob ‘media’ is a stretch.

  16. Men must change to reverse Japan’s rapidly declining birthrate
    At work and at home, it is crucial for men to do their share

    At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Japan braced itself for the devastation of its elderly population. Yet, the biggest demographic blow arrived not in the form of more people dying but fewer people being born.

    Extrapolating the latest government statistics from January to March, Japan can expect 80,000 fewer babies this year — a 9.2% fall in the birthrate compared to 2020 — while COVID-19 has so far claimed the lives of fewer than 13,000 people.

      Japan will be just fine.
      When Mr. Tanaka is once again able to support his household and service his mortgage on his salary alone (for a 3-bedroom house within 40 minutes door-to-door to his place of work) then he and his good wife Mrs. Tanaka will have 3 children. He will bring in the money and give it all to Mrs. Tanaka, who will run the household and its finances, give her husband his pocket money, raise the children and attend to neighborhood events (critical for local community cohesion).

      Oddly enough, the same applies to Auckland.

    • Don’t laugh.
      Japan’s (unevenly geographically distributed) aging and the plummeting birthrate are of grave concern.

      Japan has its “Nihonjin-ron” which is something vaguely similar to the pre-war “God must be an Englishman” mentality in the UK, only much more pervasive and much stronger.

      Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nihonjinron

      What New Zealanders do not have a Kiwi-ron (instead they have a “Kiwi cringe”) although people who self-identify as Maori are actually developing a functioning Maori-ron. Fascinating.

  17. HSBC shareholders overwhelmingly voted to phase out coal financing by 2040 and align the bank’s lending with Paris Agreement climate goals

    The resolution, supported by over 99% of votes at an annual shareholders meeting Friday, was spearheaded by a coalition of investors managing $2.4 trillion in assets led by U.K.-based nonprofit ShareAction. A 75% majority was needed to make the resolution binding.

    HSBC ranked among the 10 biggest financers of fossil fuels in the world last year, with roughly $23.54 billion in funding for the sector, according to the Rainforest Action Network, a charity. The bank has provided $110 billion in total to the fossil fuel sector since the 2016 Paris accord, the data showed.

  19. Fauci In 2012: Gain-Of-Function Research ‘Worth Risk Of Lab Accident Sparking Pandemic’

    In the paper, Dr Fauci also writes: “Within the research community, many have expressed concern that important research progress could come to a halt just because of the fear that someone, somewhere, might attempt to replicate these experiments sloppily. This is a valid concern.”
    Dr Fauci has led the US response to the outbreak but is now facing serious questions about his role in funding the radical experiments being conducted inside the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

  20. Hey Mikey sorry we haven’t had a chance to catch up in Brisbane. I’m still here now but have been tied up with family stuff all the time.

    Talking a bit to locals here it seems that life is pretty much booming – although as visitor it’s not possible to gauge 100% of course on the basis of such a short trip.

    I’ve had a few conversations with locals and I’ve picked up an undercurrent of regret and sadness here for the direction New Zealand is going vis a vis China especially and also in other foreign policy areas. Many I have talked to seem genuinely confused as to why Ardern is (reported as being) so popular, even though she is working hard to destroy the ANZAC spirit and brotherhood between the two countries.

    Obviously I’m just a visitor and my POV is biased… but when I tell people about the Maori gangs closing a school for two days, the impending destruction of our society at the behest of the Climate Commission and the introduction of unelected Maori wards etc I can feel myself slipping away from the EcoMarxist failed state of the former New Zealand.

    Australia isn’t perfect. But at least here there is a sense of cohesion and nationhood; whereas New Zealand doesn’t even know it’s own name

    • No worries EK. Im back in the shithole Crimechurch on Monday arvo.
      Im sold on this place. I will be making plans and organising things for a one way ticket back to Brissy, all going well end of June.
      Rentals can go into property management.
      Fuck you Ardern and your clown car band of losers. Im over it. Im over you.

      • I’m thinking the same way Mikey. Queensland is a bit hot for me so I’m looking at setting up my business in Sydney (where I lived years ago) and putting my properties into management too. Might sell one though and invest in something here in Oz. Plans just in the development stage at the moment – but I’m pretty sure New Zealand is heading towards being a failed state, so I need to get out before it’s too late.

    • “New Zealand doesn’t even know it’s own name…”

      That’s not good at all.
      In Japan, if you speak a foreign language (like English) you use that language’s name for Japan. In Japanese conversation and on the news, Japan is “Nihon.”

      When speaking Te Reo, I would expect “Aotearoa” to be used as the conventionally accepted name for the nation of New Zealand.

      I am absolutely amazed and aghast that English speakers in New Zealand are using a non-English term for the name of their nation in their native tongue. How could they? From the Japanese perspective, such infidelity to one’s mother country is incomprehensible.

      My Cringeometer has buried its needle into the red zone….

      • It is funny. Scotts an arsewipe from way back. Never got over his shit old man.

        Here he is banging the same drum. Beat up the old man with shit even he wasn’t responsible for. That was done before Morrison was PM. That it gets up Jacinda’s nose is even better because it is the right thing to do.

        He just might find something better to do than roll up in Queenstown at our expense. If the airport is open.
        If he tell cindy to get fucked on our behalf that is all good with me. She has just caused me a lot of grief that I don’t need.

    • I hope they tell the children of NZ that “recycling means we send your plastic bags to a Chinese-owned company in Auckland which then ships the waste off to a third-world country where paid-off officials let it be dumped into open ground (or rivers)”.

  21. French club Biarritz Olympique announces gay dating app Grindr as jersey sponsor

    French rugby club Biarritz Olympique have announced a bold new sponsorship partner – the world’s largest gay, bi, trans, and queer dating app.

    The second-tier club, which takes part in the ProD2 league, has sold its primary jersey sponsorship to Grindr which will display its name front and centre, accompanied by the cheeky placement of its logo on the back of the playing shorts.

    While the deal is reportedly expected to net the club €4m ($NZ6.7m) over four years, it is also part of a wider campaign by the club to counter homophobia within the sport.

  22. Dilworth School sex abuse: Victim told people making historic allegations are often ‘making excuses or trying to get ACC’

    Sexton approached Dilworth late in 2012 after deciding it was time to do something about the abuse he suffered in 1973 at Dixon’s home and on school trips with other boys.
    But the response he got back from Derek Firth, the chairman of the Trust Board, came as a shock.
    “I found it extremely insulting… it takes a lot of energy to come forward with this.”
    Firth said in a letter that he was happy to meet Sexton but it would be “nothing more than a courtesy” and not to expect any sort of compensation.
    “Nothing more than that should be read into my suggestion.”

  23. Now…why would gutter press report on this?…..Are they shitting themselves….or is it summit else.
    I was under the impression they were all fact averse.🤜🤡🤛

    EXCLUSIVE: COVID-19 ‘has NO credible natural ancestor’ and WAS created by Chinese scientists who then tried to cover their tracks with ‘retro-engineering’ to make it seem like it naturally arose from bats, explosive new study claims.

    The paper’s authors, British Professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen, wrote that they have had ‘prima facie evidence of retro-engineering in China’ for a year – but were ignored by academics and major journals.

  25. Comment from a Facebook post.
    “went into my doctor and asked to take all 5 of my children on the register. I took home signed confirmation that they are no longer in the system to be contacted regarding future vaccinations of any kind.”

    This roll out and all the bs around the gene therapy masquerading as a vaccine is leading to a rise in anti-vaxxers imo.
    Prior to covax it would never even have occurred to me to question vaccines generally, not so sure anymore.

  26. With the push back on covid, the breaking of the simple truth about Covid Origins and the resulting events that led to Trump being pilloried when in fact he was correct all along, will ranting nutter Robert De Zero and the other Hollyweird has-beens apologise?

    Not bloody likely.

    De Zero is a totally mental after only ever chasing bleck women, including trying to get into Whitney Houston’s pantaloons.
    He is a one sick bastard that made some good movies half a century ago.

    PS This spell check is so useless it does not recognise the word Covid after more than a year of dominant use.
