    • Over the last month Mr Trump has done more for world peace than his predecessor did in eight years.

      They gave his predecessor the Nobel Peace prize for being black, what will they give the much more peaceful Trump?

      • Impeachment? It seems fitting when the Democrats typically like war (they only pretend not to) and are therefore actually opposed to peace.

  1. Yes, but what is more important is that they are going to resume talks between their officials. Donald Trump announced this at the end of his press conference.
    Where he really gave it to the media!
    Go Trump!

  2. Waitangi Tribunal Recommends Separate Maori Health System be Set Up
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/113881330/waitangi-tribunal-recommends-new-independent-mori-health-authority

    “Waitangi Tribunal claimant Tureiti Lady Moxon wants the Government to apologise for failing Māori in the health system.

    “It’s our people dying of preventable diseases, who are the worst off in this country, in a democratic society that’s supposed to look after everybody,” she said.

    “They’ve failed us constantly.”

    “To all those Māori who have suffered, died or continue to die because they haven’t got the services they needed to have at the time they needed to have it.”

    Do Maori really believe ango-NZ’ers don’t have to wait for their health care services? What do
    they imagine the ‘hospital waiting list’ is for?

    • our people dying of preventable diseases, who are the worst off in this country, in a democratic society that’s supposed to look after everybody

      That’s not what a “democratic society” means. People are meant to look after themselves. If they cannot, their family and friends are the next steps. And if they are unable to help, there are charities and health professionals that can.

  3. I am getting sick of all these articles on our systems failing Maori.
    Education
    Justice
    Health
    Home ownership
    Homelessness
    All these systems are failing Maori and are racist.
    And Maori should be responsible for delivering these services to their own people.
    That is rascist.
    And will they collect their own taxes and leave our taxes for non Maori.
    Why are Maori the only people in the world that cannot adopt and thrive in western civilization?

    • Maori fail to acknowledge we have paid to set up Marae based health services that have been running for a couple of decades. Surprise, no change in Maori dying on average 7 years earlier than other races in NZ, yet they want even more tax funding for an “Independant Maori Health Industry”. ‘Independent’ as long as the taxpayer fund it of course. NZ can’t afford one fully funded health service for NZ’ers, let along a parallel separate system sucking off the taxpayer.

    • Maori really are hopeless.
      Their own report said that they are the most disadvantaged of all ethic groups in NZ.
      So Sri Lankans, Afghanis, Somalis, Cook Islanders all get good health care and Maori don’t!
      Even though we put up posters in Maori
      Even though there were tv ads starring Maori women getting breast scans.
      Fuck off ORA

    • Only when maori stop eating crap food, when they stop smoking, when the “Nephs” get off the couch and stop taking drugs, will their health outcomes improve.
      What are the main killers in NZ?
      Cardiovascular (smoking) Cancer ( eating crap food and smoking) and family violence especially on the young. When they stop doing all this then maybe their stats will improve.

  6. This piece of shit by Patrick Gower is probably the worst article I’ve seen by the New Zealand media.

    He jumps from topic to topic in an attempt to paint Simon Bridges as a white supremacist instead of asking Winston Peters why he, the man that’s been attacking immigration and race for his entire political career, has now decided to roll over and let the UN migration pact tickle his belly.

    0

    • So, because Simon Bridges, the leader of the NZ opposition party deposes the UN Immigration Pact, he is deemed by Peters to be a supporter of white supremacy? Really???! It is Simon’s job as leader of the opposition to oppose laws that are not beneficial to NZ. Peters is just using you and your inflammatory claims Gower to make political capital. And, any people protesting the UN Immigration Pact makes you a “white supremacist”?? Oh dear, what a weird little world we have fallen into. Alice and the mad queen will be along any minute.

      • Gower is apparently off on a world tour to investigate legalised cannabis in the States, etc. and will be reporting back on how NZ will be affected if similar laws are introduced here. Another piece of shock jock drivel by Gower.

      • I never considered myself a “supremacist”, but I despise the UN and the 3rd world in general- not human beings, but dirt-poor dysfunctional cultures full of uneducated religious zealots and weirdos who look like they just climbed out of trees in the last few decades. I don’t want to live with them. I don’t want to pay a single dollar in tax money to support anyone outside NZ’s sovereign borders. If that makes me an extremist, so be it. The “woke”left already consider people like me white supremacists anyway. The worst of the worst accusers are guilt-ridden white lefties like the ugly Gower.

  7. One of the things that helped Donald Trump win the 2016 US presidential election was The Great Meme War. This is where his supporters basically ran rings around Clinton’s meme generators.

    Of course, determining how effective the Meme war was for Trump is another story.

    I saw on my Facebook feed a New Conservative Meme basically mocking Newshub and their dropping of their unfavourable Ardern poll. I then went and visited their Facebook page: they’ve created quite a number of them. I then went to ACT hoping to see Meme’s being generated: none.

    I personally think they helped generate support for Trump (and continue to do so). They are usually very entertaining.

    I’d like to see ACT start knocking some out. Anyone agree with me?

    • When a few of us met David Seymour in Hamilton last month we asked Act about use of the internet to promote Act. They admitted they haven’t taken any notice of blogs, etc, so that is an area they are sorely lacking in. Perhaps with the added interest generated by Act recently, they will attract some clever computer savy members. Love a good Meme.

  8. I admit to some trepidation before visiting YSB this morning.

    Not just because I have had viewing privileges only quite a bit recently including yesterday and to start with this morning but because I knew my eyes are likely to be assaulted by pictures of the pig-ugly harridan.

    These seem to appear damned near daily – not something I want to see while eating.

    Mr Editor, We know what the terrifyingly horrible slag looks like. Is it possible when posting about it to put the pictures behind a (well marked with caution and red flag) link?

    • Good question; as far as ventilation goes, the building code only requires extractor fans in a bathroom if there is no opening window. A kitchen rangehood is not required if the stove is located on an exterior wall near a window. You can bet 99% of people out there will make up their own rules as they go, instead of actually reading the law for themselves-clause G4- which has been in place since 1992.

      • My house (a modest brick veneer home) built in 1999 has no ventilation.
        Unless I open my windows (which I try to do most days)
        I have added a rangehood.
        I used to live in an older Beazly style house (1960s) and it had vents in the wall foundations

        • Opening windows ticks the box in clause G4; it can get a bit complicated with apartment buildings with only one exterior wall, but for detached houses most will already comply with the building code anyway.

  9. Labour and the Coalition keep blaming National for our state house shortage plus state that they shouldn’t have been selling them off. Well it seems the Labour led Coalition have obviously got the same plan as with 287 houses waiting on a decision for development whether to be renovated or demolished, with a further 297 properties on their way out of the housing Portfolio some meaning to be sold or demolished.https://i.stuff.co.nz/national/113357210/how-nzs-social-housing-problem-is-expected-to-worsen-before-it-gets-better.
    There is now more waiting for a state house than whe Labour declared National have created a housing crisis.

    • The stupid thing about Labour was their whining about what National was doing in renewing the housing stock, of course, people had to leave and there would be development time, Labour hasn’t even had to start that from scratch and they are inept.

    • The CoL and their enablers, the Media, prove time and time again how dishonest they are.

      In this example, National’s policy was to sell off houses that were underutilised (where no one wanted to live) and the sales thereof were to fund buying or building where their state tenants actually wanted to live. As can probably be imagined the areas state tenants didn’t want to live in were also places not many other people want to live in either, so they weren’t typically sold for megabucks. As such, it wasn’t a one to one funding policy.

      There were exceptions to this: where the area had become gentrified and still weren’t suitable for state tenants. These were few and far between. Sure, they got media attention due to their novelty factor.

      • I sold a few when I was a real estate agent, lovely solid houses and yes there was no-one to live in them at the time, I also know of a few that needed extensive work, all were sold at market rate.

    • National did what was sensible- old state houses that are now in primo neighbourhoods and worth a fortune should be sold off, and the money used to build flats or units in cheaper parts of town in higher density, saving the taxpayer a lot of money. Why should people who can’t afford to even feed themselves live on a 1/4 acre paradise in a wealthy suburb? Most working people can’t afford that.

      • Glenn Innes was a prime example of that. I think that most people were rehoused back in their old communities. Community is important. but one person living in a four bedroom state house isn’t.
