  1. Morning all. Nice to see you up and about before the sun gets to shinning.
    The world is made better some days by great leaders big and small. Today is one for the big.
    Golf: Donald Trump says Tiger Woods to get Presidential Medal of Freedom

    Who couldn’t vote Yes to Trump now?

    Exalt the exemplary performance of winners.

    what’s not to like?

    Where can we find another “Trump” for our small nation of many fine people?

    • 51 %- for doing absolutely nothing. The opposition has some serious work to do! Labour supporters could care less if the country is run into the ground. A smile and a welfare check is all they need to pay their bills.

        • And I believe John Key was on 59 after the CHCH earthquakes. Simon really does have the hardest job at the moment and yet the media still beat him down, shouldn’t they want him to stay if he is, as they say, so useless? I want him to hang on in there, little that has gone in these 18 months could have been foreseen and they have had to adjust to being in opposition, better I would say than the COL have adjusted to being in government.

          I confess to having no time for swing voters lol unless they swing to my side that is, but if Blue voters consider that National has shifted to the left on the broad spectrum, then the left are really left.

          Hold the line, just like not everyone is born beautiful, it is nothing that plastic surgery can’t fix, just like there are things you can do if you are born poor if others are aspirational for you and if you have aspiration for yourself.

          I do believe that it is time for the Empire to Strike Back, and maintaining free speech is a damn good start, it means that more people will need to lift their heads above the parapet but it is now or never.

          The sensitive wee petals that seem to come from this generation have been allowed to be that soft by their parents molly coddling them, I am proud to say that none of my three children are snowflakes.

  2. On a more sober note.
    The issue of identifying the ?red Cross Nurse.

    Yesterday on the post In New York, the Muslim cleric made clear what the Muslim Doctrine is. Never mind all the “nice” versions and the many of actually nice people of Muslim faith.
    The reality is that if you are not Muslim then you are the “infidel”. That means you and me and that nice Lady and many others from organizations like the Red Cross.

    Arden and her advisors and the advisors of the previous Govt. display the naivety about the Doctrine of Islam when they chose to hide the behavoir of the adherents to that doctrine.
    It is beyond belief that they would believe that withholding a persons name would shelter that person from the wrath or the retaliation against that individual be that person be Kiwi or not. It is just not in the psychology of that Muslim individual to make that distinction. That person is driven by an ingrained doctrine. (Brainwashed.).

    The Americans have it right. They have never shied away from being public about these things. (Probably because their press is much more active and will publish anyway as opposed to our which appears to have been under and embargo.And we worry about freedom of speech. See the Stuff justifications today).

    I wonder as no doubt many others now will what the response to the Christchurch shootings would have been had the story of Kiwi nurse Louisa Akavi had been public knowledge and if the basic tenets of the Doctrine were better known if Kiwi’s would have been as sympathetic as they have been and it appears we will continue to be?

    Now I am not in anyway condoning the shooter’s behavoir, which is of itself an abhorrent behavoir towards others. He is and remains a coward. He came to a peaceful country and his actions were against anything we believe. He will plead not guilty (because he is a deranged coward), and we the Taxpayers will have the costs of the ongoing involvement with this person. He won’t have the guts to take his own life either.

    Personally I think we should simply have a Judge find hin guilty regardless of his plea, for he clearly is, and then sentence him to 12 months and then deport him back to Australia and let them deal with him. That ,given their behavoir in exporting criminals to us, would be a suitable present for Mr Dutton.

    The Story of Kiwi nurse Louisa Akavi needs to be publicized and talked about for it will help remove the scales from the angels eyes.
    Kiwi’s will learn about those that would endeavor to take over our country and our lives.

    And that IMHO would be a good thing.

    d as your friends”

    NY Cleric Muhammad Ibn Muneer said Muslims Should Hate Non-Muslims, Can Only Maintain Relations With Them To Call Them To Islam.

    “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as friends. They are friends of one another. And whoever is a friend to them among you, then indeed, he is of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.” (Qur’an 5:51)

    • I am sure that Jacinda could kick the Red Cross for their timing, good for them, they are putting their worker before politics.

      The name Louisa Akavi should be said often and loud, not just as the red cross nurse, if she is found I hope she will be getting back pay, because she will have been doing god’s work.
      Knock Jacinda off the front page Louisa and come back to us safe and tell your story, since these things only apparently resonate when they happen to ‘one of us.’

      I can’t imagine the horrors that You have seen nor those that have been perpetuated on you. I would be interested in your opinion of Islam now.

      The person Ryan interviewed on AM was saying that it is really hard to identify people in the camps who wear Burkha, If there is controversy about a hijab there is a greater one with the Burkha.

      Shouldn’t Jacinda be imploring the Muslim countries to find our citizen since they think she is so wonderful? A good use of political capital from the CHCH attack. How could they refuse her?

      • The Red Cross said they have been looking for Louisa Akavi in the crowded refugee camp without any luck. The Red Cross have prominent flags hung above their tents within the camp in the hope Louisa can make her way to one of their sites for help. She may have Stockholm syndrome by now which may mean she is wary of her previous life.

        • It is fortunate if that is the word that she was such a skilled nurse, at least she had utility that might have saved her from some abuses, more utility than journalists that have not made it out, unforgivable, and I shall not forget, despite what the Government will have me believe.

    • I have travelled extensively in the Middle East for a variety of reasons and it’s obvious to me that Islam as a system is incompatible with the Western system.
      If you are a follower of Islam this encompasses your whole life, from what you eat to what you believe to what you wear and in Islamic countries this is fine because everything is set up to cater for this but in Western countries it is not.
      This is where the friction starts to develop and the them and us attitudes take hold.
      I used to work with a guy who was a devout Muslim and he had to pray five times a day so had special exemption to skip out and do this whenever he needed too.
      Of course the other workers didn’t like or respect this guy because it was seen that he was getting perks which everyone else was not entitled too.
      In cases like this I believe that if you want to pray five times a day then fine, start your own business otherwise sorry but you will have to go with what every else is doing.

      • How long did each prayer session take? I have always felt the same about smokers, when I was a smoker at college lol I used to bike home because I was too much of a goody goody to go down the back of the field with ‘those’ kids, not that they were in any of my classes anyway, but it used to take me 7 minutes to smoke a cigarette and if I had biked really fast, I would have time for two before I raced back to school, don’t ask me why, except I didn’t want to get caught, funny the things that we do. Smokers in the work place also expect special consideration.

    One of the new moderators “Batman” helped me make up my mind as he seems to be exhibiting all the same traits as the former Pete Belt on WO.
    Batman has only been on the blog a short time but now he is a moderator the power seems to have gone to his head.
    KB is already in trouble and a moderator like this will just finish it off.

    Quite a good article from Liam Hehir on the free speech debate.
    Interestingly it highlights Susan Devoy’s comments around Christchurch and how seemingly extreme she has become.

  12. Shamima Begum the Isis bride has been granted legal aid for her to fight the decision against losing her British citizenship after she ran away at 15 to joined Isis. Legal aid will ensure the finance and lawyers are there for her to have her British citizenship reinstated. If she is able to return to Britain she will face the courts to answer for joining and supporting a terrorist group.

  14. Christchurch terror attacks: Too few Muslim-focused mental health services – advocate
    https://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/387178/christchurch-terror-attacks-too-few-muslim-focused-mental-health-services-advocate
    “Guled Mire, an advocate for young Muslims, and co-founder of Third Culture Minds, said worries were raised that there weren’t enough culturally-specific services.
    They are concerned that those people are not going to be able to resonate with them and understand their experiences because their worldview has been formed essentially as their identities as Muslims, and they want to be able to relate to counsellors.”

    Okay so all the slogans about us all “being one” are rubbish as Muslims are saying they can’t relate to any counsellor who is not also a Muslim.
    Sounds like racism to me.
    Wonder if the authorities would be so sympathetic if I was assigned a Muslim counsellor but complained and said I wanted a European one.

  19. A National MP Simon dies & goes to Hell. The devil himself meets him surrounded by fire & lightning & offers to show the new bloke around the place. They pass sights that are so horrible that they have not even been seen on TV1, they hear sounds that would make mortals go insane with fear & they smell rotten & burning flesh everywhere.Eventually they arrive at a door marked Labour Caucus room & the wails & the gnashing of teeth can be heard outside.

    “This is where you will spend the rest of eternity.” the devil smirks.

    Simon is obviously less than happy having to share all eternity with a bunch of Labour Politicians but says nothing & assumes that this is indeed hell. As David enters the room he notices that everyone is being force-fed lemonade with chardonay through straws; some people are lying face down over swiss balls being buggered senseless by large men with masks on. Everyone however is wearing a blue scarf.David slightly perturbed by the fact that no Labour MP’s seem to have gone to hell asks the prince of darkness “Why are there no Labour Politicians in hell?”

  20. Came to my notice this morning.
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/04/nzta-rules-out-mandarin-traffic-signs-in-canterbury-s-mackenzie-district.html?fbclid=IwAR13sLNcS6EX7FihXRk6hEQAcNqv8iMS-OlpKhIwMh2DyOA-5h4Fk99OYsQ

    Now it may be just a freak coincidence ( far be ti from me to decide ) but just in case we thought this was a good idea (and I do ) then the problem seems that the Minister for things NZTA is a certain flake by the name of Twyford.
    Now Mr Twyford has Chinese form you will recall.
    Prior to the last election Mr Twyford had a hissy fit around housing and his specious claim (since debunked). that the price of housing and the shortage of housing in Auckland was caused by all the Chinese buying up the houses. He produced a list of all those Chinese sounding people.

    Is Mr Twyford racist, or just Chinese phobic?

    What part did he play in this decision?

    Well with NZTA we will never ever know will we. Too many Chinese walls in place. eh!

    Personally I think it’s a great idea.

    Here’s the point.
    If roads were regarded as a workplace(which they often are) and NZTA and its Directors were accountable as company directors are these days for the Health and Safety of the “employees and users of those roads, would that make a difference to the behavoir of the management and directors of that agency.

    Would we see better roads and more friendly roads?

    Is there not a case for making roads and NZTA into an agency accountable for H & S just like the rest of us in business. and they are a business.

    • Thinking about this ; we are currently plastering the countryside with Te Reo for no great purpose as few can be bothered learning it and why should they? That’s not today’s argument. Recently I had to do some work at Whaka the well known tourist place in Rotorua.
      I noticed the various signs up there in Korean, Japanese and Chinese. Now say what you like about the distination, they cater for the tourists and its past time NZTA became more customer focused and did the same.

    • I thought the road signage was to international practice.

      These days apps and cell phones and cover a lot of things, with translations.

      To be fair to the Chinese the signs in Mandarin, or Cantonese, and that has symbols in 2 forms, either simplified Chinese and then traditional Chinese for the latter. Then the minorities like the Uighur, with their form of Turkic language, though I hear they are being “re-educated”.

      The Japanese and Korean would it useful.

      Spanish, French, German, etc.. would assist other drivers, and considering they drive on the other side of the road.

      Now do not forget another international language, which soon will be “us” and that is Arabic. Also wudu cleansing conveniences near handy masjid places so the prayer time can be catered for.

      It is more like the standard of the Driver’s licence, or would an International Drivers Licence should be required to drive in New Zealand!?
      Perhaps the cars can be re-calibrated, so speed contol systems, warning whistles and bells, automatic slowing, putting on brakes, coming up to corners.
      Actually why can not cars be driven by people remotely like drones, so the tourist can just enjoy the scenery.

      It seems we must make every one feel inclusive, and in this global joining up, they must feel as if they have never left their country,
      as we build the “Tower of Babel”.

      I have had to value my schoolboy French, looking for the root word in Spanish, or Italian. Challenge my thinking in inquiring and understanding when travelling abroad, to know my commonsense has to be have a bit more than a Twyford re-calibration.
