  1. I wonder how much taxpayers Koha was spent with a couple of university pointy heads to come up with ” NZ drivers are more likely to drive carefully when they have a large flat screened TV on the back seat of the car than they are with just their partners in the car ??
    FFS when will this shit end ?

    • Not until the govt. runs out of your and my money.

      DO WE NEED SO MANY BUREAUCRATS?

      A few days ago, a friend drew my attention to what has been an extraordinary increase in public service staff numbers over the last three years.
      Meanwhile;

      And by the public service I don’t mean the hundreds of thousands of people employed in the broader public sector – teachers, nurses, police officers, those serving in the armed forces; those employed by the majority-owned government corporations like Genesis, Meridian, Mercury or Air New Zealand; entities like the Reserve Bank, New Zealand Post, Kiwirail, the Crown Research Institutes and so on – I mean just those who are literally employed at the core of the public service. These are people employed in government departments such as the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Social Development, Inland Revenue, and so on.

      • ….. and the increased local government departments, working to comply with that central government decrees, like the “greening” that are creating more new policy, like SNAGs on other peoples land, and evaluating further conservation, that then runs across all parts of operations.

        The road ways that need “traffic management” like new “speed limits” or judder bars, or roundabouts, that all have sky high costs, even if they could be deemed necessary.

        Consultancy areas like giving full regard to tikanga and then how it is to be practiced across all parts of the council.

        Carbon considerations that are then put into affect, again in discussion etc. to make policy, across roads, rubbish, and how many things are done.

        Seems like jobs for the 4 year degree, clip-board, tick boxers, that have even more managers for them to operate, at great self important salaries, well beyond the “living wage” in Councils.

  2. The rian in Spain stays mostly on the Plain.
    Well seems it does the same in Canterbury.

    Funny that.

    Looks like all the rubbish in the rivers has been moved on. We need to do the same with some of our population !.

  3. Besides the profits from Covid vaccines, BigPharma does not want Ivermectin to be used.
    It will severely cut the sales of the cold & flue remedies, like decongestants, cough suppressants, fever reducers, etc.by the tune of billions, & of course the profit from flue vaccines.

    Perhaps those Mexican gangs can run Ivermectin into the USA & up into Canada. 🙂

  4. According to the NZ Herald, a quarter of the NZ population will be “Asian” by 2043.
    “Asian” is undefined, but it will be mostly Chinese. Are Indians included in the “Asian” category?
    A key point is that this “Asian” fraction will not be evenly distributed throughout the country. In parts of Auckland, the percentage will be significantly higher than 25%.

    • The UK police & media do seem to use Asian very much for the Indian subcontinent, much to the chagrin of others further East, when other “problems” are involved.

      From an older article, Jan 07 2019
      “We’re anticipating about 36 per cent of Auckland’s population in 2038 will be Asian,” Spoonley said. He cautioned the city could be even more diverse than the current data suggests, because Stats NZ’s projections are based on the 2013 census and don’t take into account recent immigration trends.
      https://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/109261570/auckland-2038-the-superdiverse-city

      This raises a question, is New Zealand unfair to Africa?

        • Define “Diversity.” That is the key.
          The typical Far East Asian* family is very similar to conservative Western families. Both want the following:
          – Own their own home
          – Save money
          – Have children complete education, go to university (or get a trade and a good job)
          – Look after aging parents (for as long as possible)
          – Enjoy time with (eventual) grandchildren
          – Use double-entry bookkeeping and a Mac or Windows OS
          – Obey the law / keep away from involvement with the police

          * Chinese, Korean, Japanese

        • Sorry Alice but I don’t agree. Being married to an Indian and having a mix of Indian, Chinese and Filipino friends and business/work connections, I don’t see diversity as being a problem at all. The violence in our country is primarily coming from those who identify as ‘Maoris’, and is not caused by diversity, but rather by society focusing for years on telling them how different and special they are.

          • From the Herald Ref: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/asians-set-to-make-up-one-quarter-of-new-zealand-population-by-2043-stats-nz/2UKDT6LLNYT2RUEFHASXZ27GN4/

            Ranjna Patel comments, “I’m a Kiwi, but I’m always going to look like what I look like, so I’m always Indian, and I have the cultural, religious teachings and values of what an Indian would have. But when I go to India and I open my mouth, I’m also a foreigner. So where do I really belong when my family’s been here (in New Zealand) for over 100 years?”

            Let’ analyze this.
            – Family has been in NZ for 100 years, but Patel still has a 100% Indian name. “I have the cultural, religious teachings and values of what an Indian would have.”
            (One would do this if one wanted to continue to marry within one’s ethnic group (or caste?))
            Reading between the lines: “I expect my children to marry Indians.” (I assume.)
            – “But when I go to India and I open my mouth, I’m also a foreigner.” Yes. That is because in their eyes you are no longer “native Indian.” The same applies to Japanese expats returning to Japan. (You have been tainted by your life overseas.)
            – “I’m a Kiwi… I’m always Indian, … I’m also a foreigner.” So where are your loyalties?

            It’s complex and messy.
            – Patel is ethnically 100% Indian, but lacks fluency in Hindi and a detailed knowledge of contemporary Indian culture (why else would she be seen as a “foreigner” in India?)
            – She thinks of herself as an Indian and understanding of Indian culture and religion (enough to want her children to either marry local Indians or to send back to the Mother Country for a spouse).
            – She thinks of herself as a “Kiwi,” which legally she is.

            It’s a conundrum.

            What must an immigrant give up to become a “real Kiwi*”?
            What must an immigrant adopt to become a “real Kiwi*”?

            * You will have to define what a “real Kiwi” is.

    • Noting the flip flop policies of the French President Macron, on saying one thing in France, about integrating, then another in Africa.

      [Macron] speaking to the “millions of young people” who, in France, “have a history with Africa through their families, through generations”.
      “We will finally tell them that we will be able to build together.
      We will stop telling them: It’s a problem and you have to integrate yourself . We are finally going to tell them:
      You are a chance for France and you are going to help us develop this common history , ”he says

      They leave places of the most affordable housing to go to one of the most expensive cities on earth, and then demand free housing
      [But butt bbb… that is what social welfare makes, free housing 🙁 ]

      When will New Zealand see this form of demand being practiced? as it is considered a “right”

      So far NZ has a very good moat, but the changes in migration policies, the UN Migration Pact, the consideration of UN rights, the employees in Immigration, will change things.

    • The maori have seen the writing on the wall and are all out in a last ditch atempt to gain as much as they can before the rising tide makes them irrelevant! The asians are not going to be interested in the treaty and fables! How long before we get a new asian party to contest parliament? Is this why labour have thrown their support behind the maoris by changing NZ before it happens! But what changes can be changed again to new thinking, nothing is set in stone!

  5. It got crowded in heaven, so, for one day it was decided only to accept people who had really had a bad day on the day they died.

    St. Peter was standing at the pearly gates and said to the first man, “Tell me about the day you died.”

    The man said, “Oh, it was awful. I was sure my wife was having an affair, so I came home early to catch her with him. I searched all over the apartment but couldn’t find him anywhere. So I went out onto the balcony, we live on the 25th floor, and found this man hanging over the edge by his fingertips. I went inside, got a hammer, and started hitting his hands. He fell, but landed in some bushes. So, I got the refrigerator and pushed it over the balcony and it crushed him. The strain of the act gave me a heart attack, and I died.”

    St. Peter couldn’t deny that this was a pretty bad day, and since it was a crime of passion, he let the man in.

    He then asked the next man in line about the day he died. “Well, sir, it was awful,” said the second man. “I was doing aerobics on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment when I twisted my ankle and slipped over the edge. I managed to grab the balcony of the apartment below, but some maniac came out and started pounding on my fingers with a hammer. Luckily I landed in some bushes. But, then the guy dropped a refrigerator on me!”

    St. Peter chuckled, let him into heaven and decided he could really start to enjoy this job.

    “Tell me about the day you died?”, he said to the third man in line.

    “OK, picture this, I’m naked, hiding inside a refrigerator….”

  6. https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2021/06/mike-king-lashes-out-at-ministry-of-health-morons-condescending-jacinda-ardern.html

    Mental health advocate Mike King has lashed out at the “morons” at the Ministry of Health and “condescending” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

    “This is how out of touch these morons down at the Ministry of Health are – and they’re morons. They don’t know that 40 percent of the counselling services out there are for kids 11 and under. That’s how out of touch they are,” he tells The Hui.

    King went on to say the Ministry of Health doesn’t know where the $1.9 billion cash splash from 2020’s Budget has gone.

    “While I totally respect Mike’s decision, his honour was about the contribution he’s made to improving people’s lives – and that stands,” she said last week.

    “I’m not finished [with fighting for mental health care]. I saw Jacinda’s condescending response to me: ‘Oh it’s just Mike, we all know what Mike’s like’,” he says.

    He says he wants New Zealanders to email him a small paragraph on how the Ministry of Health has “let your child down” to mike@keytolife.org.nz. From there, he says he will ensure this gets in front of all New Zealanders, including the Ministry of Health and Ardern.

    “We can beat these people. Their days of telling the people of New Zealand what they’re going to do are over.”

    are pushing their carts around Wal-Mart
    when they collide.
    The old guy says to the young guy,
    “Sorry about that. I’m looking for my wife,
    and I guess I wasn’t paying attention
    to where I was going.”
    The young guy says, “That’s OK, it’s a coincidence.
    I’m looking for my wife, too…
    I can’t find her and I’m getting a little desperate.”
    The old guy says,
    “Well, maybe I can help you find her…
    what does she look like?”
    The young guy says, “Well, she is 27 yrs. old, tall,
    with red hair, blue eyes, is buxom…wearing no bra,
    long legs, and is wearing short shorts.
    What does your wife look like?’
    To which the old guy says, “Doesn’t
    matter, — let’s look for yours.”

  9. State Highway 1 at Ashburton Bridge has been closed after drivers reported the bridge was “slumping underneath them” after the bridge was compromised by the fast-flowing river.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/canterbury-floods-ashburton-bridge-closes-drivers-report-sagging-engineers-find-massive-crack?auto=0

    Brown later told 1 NEWS two engineers are assessing the bridge, which cuts not just Ashburton but the South Island in two.

    He said the initial assessment has revealed a massive crack on both sides of one of the main piles holding the bridge up. The crack is wide enough to fit a hand in.

    • I wonder how many readers will remember the the Bailey bridge developed by military engineers during WW2. From: https://www.dorsetlife.co.uk/2016/06/the-bailey-bridge/

      …..”A Bailey bridge is basically modular, made up of ten-foot by five-foot panels pinned together. Parallel lines of joined panels are connected by transoms on which the roadway, between ten and twelve feet wide, can be laid……….. Need more strength? Double or even triple up the panels on each side and increase the number of transoms.”……

      Apparently they can be configured in a way that can support 75 tons. NZ used to have a few of these in reserve for civil emergencies. If they haven’t been consigned to the scrap metal bin they could be used to bridge the damaged part of the bridge.

      All before the consulting engineers started on their $500,000 reports on ways to replace a $50,000 pile!

            • The real Gypos are actually from Northern India

              “Roma (Gypsies) originated in the Punjab region of northern India as a nomadic people and entered Europe between the eighth and tenth centuries C.E.
              They were called “Gypsies” because Europeans mistakenly believed they came from Egypt. ”

              Winston will confirm that Maori are from China but most of the Maori today are of Euro and often Celtic origin
              >Winston – Scottish mother
              >Special K – Scottish Mother and wife (he’s pretty f’ed up that dude)

    • “At present it has not been declared…”

      WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, ALICE???

      Jacinda has made it quite clear:

      YOU are the enemy: white, educated and not dirt poor, and difficult to brainwash.

      The ‘goodies’ are big tech, big media, big government and bureaucrats and their ‘people’ are beneficiaries and dark people.

      Jacinda won’t even bother to debate the war and the goal of total control over every aspect of the lives of every single New Zealander any more. The media have sorted it for her:

      “I refude that!”. No further questions asked.

      And Karen and Ken agree. Because Karen and Ken are both ‘nice’ people.

They had come to protest “peacefully” without guns and instead only armed with their American flags and their patriotism. Antifa operatives were dressed as MAGA supporters trying to incite violence but they also were unsuccessful. I watched that crowd at the Capitol and the attack on them was completely unwarranted as was the murder of Ashlee Babbit inside the Capitol.

  12. Wow so generous !!!

    “$1 uff owner and chief executive Sinead Boucher is gifting a 10 per cent share of the media firm to the company’s close to 900 staff.

    The stake in the company will be transferred to a trust controlled by employee representatives, rather than the shares being directly owned by staff members.

    The arrangement means staff would receive through the trust a share of any dividends Stuff pays out, and 10 per cent of the sale proceeds if Stuff was later sold or listed, she said.
    The gift means no staff will have to put any money into the company and they will not face any liabilities, including tax liabilities, as can apply with traditional share ownership schemes, she said. ”

    Gee wizz, 10% of $1
    10c worth…

  15. Terminators.

    An autonomous weaponised drone “hunted down” a human target last year and is thought to have attacked them without being specifically ordered to, according to a report prepared for the United Nations.

    The news raises the spectre of terminator-style AI weapons killing on the battlefield without any human control.

    The drone, a Kargu-2 quadcopter produced by Turkish military tech company STM, was deployed in March 2020 during a conflict between Libyan government forces and a breakaway military faction led by Khalifa Haftar, commander of the Libyan National Army.

    The Kargu-2 is fitted with an explosive charge and the drone can be directed at a target in a kamikaze attack, detonating on impact.

    Westpac wants to help with vaccine rollout

    Qantas is offering prizes and incentives to people who have received coronavirus vaccines.

    Mr Shorten also challenged the government’s language around reaching vaccine rollout milestones, saying two doses were needed for proper protection.

    “Don’t BS the people, if a proper vaccination is two then call it what it is,” he said.

    “Don’t pretend that by people having doses then somehow the job is done. The job is not done until you have two vaccinations.”

    More than 4.1 million vaccines have been administered across Australia, but only about 500,000 people have received both doses of the jab.

    “The state was already offering ivermectin as part of a population-wide regimen but the health authorities there doubled down their efforts as India’s national COVID-19 guidelines introduced ivermectin just days before. What has happened since is nothing short of amazing, but unfortunately attracts little media attention outside of India. Just as fast as new cases materialized so has the decline thanks in part to a coordinated public health strategy that includes proactive testing, home visits, and medication kits that include ivermectin. As of May 29, the number of estimated new cases declined to 2,014 representing perhaps the steepest decline of new cases, and hence the fastest positive turnaround of any nation, anywhere.”

  23. Auckland cloud storage company being used by ransomware attackers – FBI

    The FBI warns Auckland company Mega.NZ is being used by ransomware attackers.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/auckland-cloud-storage-company-being-used-ransomware-attackers-fbi?auto=0

    The company has told RNZ there is no sign hackers are using its service to store patient data stolen from Waikato hospitals, but it cannot rule out the possibility.

    It was also impossible to know what its 220 million account holders kept on their encrypted files, except if law enforcement or a hacked company alerted it.

  24. Massive MAGA Memorial Day Boat Parade Underway in Jupiter, Florida – Trump Thanks His Supporters!

    Trump is still highly popular several months after the 2020 election.

    There has NEVER been a boat parade for Joe Biden yet the Democrat-media complex expects us to believe Dementia Joe got 81 million votes in 2020.

  25. Early last year we did a circuit of the South Island. As someone who has an interest in technical adventure I made sure that Denniston, a few kilometres north of Westport was on our visiting list. The town servicing local coal mines was situated high above the narrow plains between the ranges & the sea. To get the high quality coal to market involved a cable railway which lowered rail wagons down what is essentially a cliff face.

    The incline plunged precipitously, 548 metres in a distance of just 1670 metres, with some grades as steep as 1 in 1.25 (80%). Each descending wagon pulled another up the incline & despite being slowed by water enabled piston brakes they would reach 80kph. It’s worth noting that the only access for workers & their families until a road was formed in the middle of last century was in the coal wagons which occasionally would part company with the cable.

    There’s not a lot left of the township which mostly disappeared after the mines were closed in 1967 but DoC & local societies have done a great job in displaying what’s left. IMHO well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

    This link leads to a short film made just before the closure: https://www.nzonscreen.com/title/pictorial-parade-195-after-ninety-years-1967

  26. It got crowded in heaven, so, for one day it was decided only to accept people who had really had a bad day on the day they died.
    St. Peter was standing at the pearly gates and said to the first man, “Tell me about the day you died.”

    The man said, “Oh, it was awful. I was sure my wife was having an affair, so I came home early to catch her with him. I searched all over the apartment but couldn’t find him anywhere. So I went out onto the balcony, we live on the 25th floor, and found this man hanging over the edge by his fingertips. I went inside, got a hammer, and started hitting his hands. He fell, but landed in some bushes. So, I got the refrigerator and pushed it over the balcony and it crushed him. The strain of the act gave me a heart attack, and I died.”

    St. Peter couldn’t deny that this was a pretty bad day, and since it was a crime of passion, he let the man in.

    He then asked the next man in line about the day he died. “Well, sir, it was awful,” said the second man. “I was doing aerobics on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment when I twisted my ankle and slipped over the edge. I managed to grab the balcony of the apartment below, but some maniac came out and started pounding on my fingers with a hammer. Luckily I landed in some bushes. But, then the guy dropped a refrigerator on me!”
    St. Peter chuckled, let him into heaven and decided he could really start to enjoy this job.
    “Tell me about the day you died?”, he said to the third man in line.
    “OK, picture this, I’m naked, hiding inside a refrigerator….”

      • It reminds me of a joke I once heard:

        Eerily similar!

  27. The supply chain is affecting everything including our pets. The 300% increase in container costs will be badly effecting prices.

    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/watties-launches-upgraded-pet-food-factory-in-hawkes-bay-amid-growing-demand?auto=6256878732001

    Wattie’s today launched an upgraded pet food factory in Hawke’s Bay.

    This as demand for pet food continues to climb and overseas products remain dogged by delays.

    A pet food shortage is just one example of how Covid has slowed down the supply of overseas goods.

    Alan McDonald from the Employers & Manufacturers Association (EMA) says container shipping costs have tripled.

    “The impact is that it was $4000 a container to get to your door and in some cases now that’s up to $12,000.”

    • If we could persuade the government to stop DoC spraying 1080 poison all over the place there are hundreds of thousands of possums, wallabies, pigs, goats and rabbits in the South Island alone that could easily be used for pet food. There are plenty of hunters who would appreciate the opportunity to make a bit of cash on the side from their sport too. It is high time that these animals were seen as the valuable resource they are and not treated as pests to be slaughtered and wasted in pursuit of an unachievable green fairy tale.
