  1. I’ve been thinking……

    Can anyone else recall an instance of a major political party being hijacked & committing ritual hari kari over what its members think their imaginary friend wants?

    Because National look a lot like that after their 18 for, 37 against split over the End of Life Choice bill last week. No votes left to the Right & the NZ political centre will avoid any forthcoming machinations of arm waving Godwhacks like a dose of the clap.

    Cindy must be rapt!

    • I’m not sure you are right there. I would regard myself as fairly right of centre but I am not entirely convinced that the “bill” is the right way to go. That is my personal view and I respect the rights of others to hold a differing view. I cannot see why ardern the liar would give a flying fuck whether National support or do not support a bill introduced by David Seymour from ACT.

    • Labour Lite are like the CONservative party in Britain.
      In 2015 both were sailing along well and the Cons received an outright majority in the British election that year.
      In 2014 the Gnats/L.L. did OK in NZ and even thanked Farrar for telling them what they should say.
      Within 3 years from 2015 each had completely trashed that status.

      The Cons pushed majority Remain while there was a positive vote for Brexit.
      There is allegedly 70% in support for End of Life Bill in NZ but Labour lite go against that.

      Both have trashed their constituencies in recent times and given voters the middle finger.
      This is not the last word…

  2. On what grounds was it deemed necessary to hold a 16 yr old child on remand for the heinous crime of possessing/sharing a copy of the mosque shooting video…? Absolute ridiculousness and petty virtue signalling move.

    And much like NZ’s favorite white supremacist, Phil Arps, with his absurd 21months jail time for sharing the video/requesting a kill count meme SFX added, how do those kinds of charges even stick when the sharing of the video was done when the video itself was still legal and not deemed/rated an offensive item, and therefor not a criminal offence at the time..?

    Sometimes I wish climate change was real, and would hurry up, a biblical type flooding event is well needed to reset humanity haha

      • Rachael, as of 2 days ago Beacroft was a happy man. Oranga Tamariki now have to make arrangements with the whanau/hapu/iwi about placement of the kids instead of taking them into care. Which he believes is the right course of action.

        So, in 2 years time, when the child violence/child death statistics are no better will he blame his advocacy of flawed proposals, hell no, he’ll blame Oranga Tamariki for not throwing greater sums of money at the very people who have sat back and done nothing about their dole bludging, stone, drunk, violent off spring breeding children as a means to get greater benefit hand outs. Until somebody says this shit must stop, wokes like Beacroft will continue to excuse the perpetrators and blame the institutions & the rest of us.

  4. It’s not CO2, it’s not you -it’s the Sun

    With the effects of the onset of a mini-ice age, the US Dept of Agriculture has started to lie about the impacts of colder winters and shorter growing seasons.

    Have a look at this video from the Ice Age Farmer channel – cataloging how the US govt is brazenly lying about crop losses after the recent one-two blow of a harsh winter and heavy flooding.

    Even the agricultural commentariat say the USDA shouldn’t have put out such a blatantly wrong report that “everything is fine, nothing to see here, move along” with planting. So typical of all the ’cause celebres’ of the modern lunatic left – when you look around, the things they say are there – are just not.

    Capitalism hasn’t failed
    Cindy’s COL are not practicing “kindness”
    The COL are not the “most open and transparent govt ever”
    The COL are not building 10k houses
    1 billion trees are not being planted
    Maori are not being systematically victimised
    Islamophobia is not a thing (well irrational fear doesn’t exist – rational fear about creeping Islam is just very sensible)
    The planet isn’t warming up and CO2 is just a relatively inert trace gas that has no effect on global temperatures
    The MSM are not to be trusted
    MMP is not a good electoral system

    Socialist Cindy can’t get by in politics without lying

    • ….”Newspeak is engineered to remove even the possibility of rebellious thoughts—the words by which such thoughts might be articulated have been eliminated from the language. Newspeak contains no negative terms. For example, the only way to express the meaning of “bad” is through the word “ungood.” Something extremely bad is called “doubleplus ungood.””…..

    • According to a commentator on Kiwiblog yesterday, he said this blog was full of people attacking each other and would become an ”echo chamber” within a year. I have only seen robust debate, while I disagree with some comments I would never attack that person for having a different opinion. Isn’t that what free speech is all about? Besides I have seen much in the way of attacks except perhaps when fairy dust was about. Anyone else?

  8. Social service finds whānau to take children at risk of state care
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/393514/social-service-finds-whanau-to-take-children-at-risk-of-state-care
    “A Far North Māori social service provider Waitomo Papakainga has stopped 47 children from being taken into state care by finding wider whānau to care for the children”.

    Sounds like a useful intititive until you read on a bit and you come across this:
    “Once a child is removed, Waitomo Papakāinga will work with the parents to get them to a position where the child can be put back in their care, which could include placing them into emergency housing, setting up benefits and entitlements and supporting them in court if they need it”.

    In other words hardly any children will be returned to normal households where people work or have a house but instead back into less dysfunctional ones where instead of being homeless and destitute the family is now living in a garage on a benefit.
    Ideal conditions to raise children one would think.

      • Sooty correction, were not paying twice, we just keep on paying from the day the child is born until it:
        1. Leaves their dysfunctional life behind and get a job; or
        2. Die.

        Sorry, but the outlook is bleak for such children and our system continually avoids dealing with the real issues – dysfunctional cereals who keep on breeding!

Whatever way you look at it, those kids will grow up in dole-abusing, unemployed, dysfunctional households unless they are removed from that environment . Shane’s nephs aren’t good role models for parenting. We were on the CYFS adoption list a few years ago, and would have adopted a Maori baby in a heartbeat, but we knew the policy was to keep them with their own families if possible. Nevermind the fact the kid would have a safe, warm home with plenty of food, toys, and love, instead of a life in Otara with the “cuzzies”. White folks need not apply. That’s what we found out.

  10. More proof of the existence of God

    So clearly the big fella upstairs is doing his very best to look after his mate Israel Folau. Looks like the far left muzzling efforts of the poofta boss of QANTAS is going to backfire. The head of the ARFU has issued some comment about losing sponsors if Folau wasn’t fired – effectively allowing Folau’s team to join QANTAS as a party to their legal case.

    So – rather than just wielding the big money rainbow bully stick quietly in the background – there is a very real possibility that QANTAS are going to have to explain very pubicly why they started the witch hunt after a male from a minority group. I’m sure raising awareness of their utter lack of tolerance and the CE’s abuse of position to use the company to pursue revenge for his own personal hurty feelings is going to help their share price (NOT).

    Proving once again that when you embark on vile, left wing virtue-signalling – it always ends up costing you money.

    Amazing how far Australian rugby has fallen since the glory days when John Eales and Nick Farr-Jones were captains – they’re a mess at the boardroom level, at the organisational leadership level and on the pitch. With a little luck they’ll get eliminated at the pool stages (come on Georgia you can do it!) and then we can all grab the popcorn and watch Raelene Castle get the boot (opening the door for her to succeed Steve Tew in the NZRFU).

      Ha, just because Cindy and co say it is the law, doesn’t mean you can go around scalping your landlord for $4k. If the roof really is leaking it sounds like he has some remedial work to do and he has every right to do with his property as he wishes. Did the tenants, “who can’t afford anything better”, think the landlord would just hand over $4k without a fight?

      There are those unintended consequences again Cindy.

  15. Phil Goff says children travel free on trains and buses at weekend:
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12230484

    “The proposal comes in election year and marks a change in Goff’s earlier plans for the council’s annual budget.

    Goff said today it will make life easier for families, especially in outer suburbs. “We’ve been told by many that the cost of public transport for families can be prohibitive,” he said. “Now they’ll be able to leave the car at home when they visit the museum or the zoo, things like that.

    He said Auckland Transport (AT) had estimated the proposal would result in 989,000 more trips per year, but the cost would be minimal because the extra trips would be using capacity that already exists in the system.”
    ~
    Generation zero says as more people use public transports the costs rise:
    https://www.interest.co.nz/news/99065/funding-model-aucklands-public-transport-system-called-question

    “Last month Generation Zero launched its Freeze the Fares campaign calling for changes to the NZTA’s public transport fares policy and cheaper fares for many of the people who use the city’s public transport.”

    • Well if you are broke because of fuel prices inflated mortgages and all of the other wonderful things living in a big city requires then you probably have bugger all option but to take your family outing on the bus now if they stopped at the liquor store or KFC on the way im sure Phil could get his quota.
      These are the polly lies i particularly loath “We’ve been told by many” notice they all use it to justify some bullshit especially Genter i actually suspect these many Kiwis are probably in the same office, sycophants or idiots interviewing their keyboard as usual much like our msm

    • Goff is talking bullshit. I work for AT and the proposal is unaffordable politics for the election.
      The free fares is a policy straight out of council, it has not been calculated properly based on long term demand and it has not been costed either. So like the local taxi scheme in Devonport it’ll cost ratepayers.

      The problem with Auckland’s PT, the current AT and council regimes are out of control with their spending and they need passengers to use it, to justify it.
      The problem is more passengers equals more buses, drivers and money of which AT doesn’t have enough.

      And what everybody has to remember is that government picks up 51% of the tab remaining after accounting for fares. So the kind farmers in places like Waipukarau are paying for urban transport services throughout the country that they very rarely ever enjoy.

      Sorry for venting my spleen, but this level of nonsense really annoys me.

  16. Centre to showcase Māori astronomy opens on Tekapō lakefront
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/393483/centre-to-showcase-maori-astronomy-opens-on-tekapo-lakefront
    “South Island iwi Ngāi Tahu has opened the world’s largest dark sky reserve, Rehua, which includes an indoor multimedia experience showcasing Māori astronomy”.

    So now it seems Maori were master astronomers as well.

        They were thrown out of Hawaii because they were trouble. This is illustrated by the fact that the Hawaiian greeting is the word ‘love’ whereas the Maoris’ greeting is to stick their tongues out at you and threaten to eat you.

        Same with the music. The Hawaiians have beautiful melodies and three part harmonies backed by the ukulele whereas Maori ‘music’ is simply an angry tuneless grunting noise.

  19. Business Confidence Slumps to 10 Year Low:
    https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/news/business/business-confidence-slumps-to-more-than-a-10-year-low/

    “With economic momentum continuing to slow, we now expect the RBNZ will cut the OCR twice more, in August and November, bringing the Official Cash Rate (OCR) to 1 per cent,” ASB economist Jane Turner said.

    The bank has already cut once this year taking New Zealand’s official cash rate to a record low 1.5 per cent.

    “We feel an OCR cut in August is a done deal and the timing of the second cut will remain dependent on domestic data, global events, the NZD and actions of offshore central banks.”

    We told the COL they would do this to our economy. Who needs these clowns, we could do better without them.

    Here is the gist of a thread

    cmm
    Fucking nonsense

    “A high-profile sportsman who allegedly helped finance an international drug syndicate can keep his name secret – for now.

    But the sportsman was never charged by police and the Crown’s evidence against him has never been tested.

    Despite that, the Crown alleged at trial the sportsman bought methamphetamine, talked to Finau about finding a supplier and helped the group exchange New Zealand currency for US currency to buy drugs.

    He is also said to have taken the cash to the US for the syndicate where it was used to buy drugs.”

    Having a special “mates rate” for criminal behaviour is surely not one of the ways of promoting a fair and equal society.

          “Helped the group exchange NZ currency for US currency to buy drugs”. Is that another way of saying he was the money launder for the group? So why was he not convicted for such serious crimes?! Very curious

    ‘ Our four-year Bachelor’s degree is heavily focused on de-colonisation, cultural competency, self-reflection, psychology and sociology. Every single graduate should be well-versed in the nature of structural inequality and discrimination. Many of us became social workers because we are activists and if we choose to work for the state, we do so with the knowledge of the power imbalances implicit in this job. We don’t remove children because we are targeting Māori or the poor; we remove children because they are being seriously harmed or in serious danger of being harmed.’

    They are already indoctrinated in pc and protocol and I would suggest many are Maori, so tikanga is almost a prerequisite.

    Non-Maori might not have as heavy caseloads. If every ethnicity in NZ wants to deal with their own cultures that they identify with it would not be evenly spread.

  28. Some of you may remember back in March/April when the woke climate change mob started promoting the idea that councils should declare a Climate Change Emergency. When this was put forward in Thames-Coromandel District Council, the mayor and a majority of councillors said no. Gouldie (the mayor was harranged at the time on RNZ.

    Well the woke environmentalists of Thames-Hauraki are not happy.
    Instead of accepting democracy, they have applied for a judicial review, claiming the council acted illegally when it voted down a motion claiming an emergency.

    • The council should set up a special trust account.
      Then, say a surcharge of double the rates to be charged to the special “woke” people.
      Then when it is proven that the sea level has risen more than a certain amount, then it can be paid back to those complainers as compensation, with interest, but minus all costs, associated with running the “trust account”.

      After all they expect everyone else to pay for the so called emergency.

      It is not perfect, but see if they will really lead by example.

      Using the word “emergency” is to provide justification of demanding money with menaces from ratepayers, taxpayers, to spend on projects, that are fast tracked, to hide that there may be no proven benefit.
      One of those costs could be for major talkfests on their wasteful topics.
