  1. Below you can see the list of speakers at the Family First Forum. There were a few National MPs but I was disappointed that Simon Bridges did not make it. There are three moral issues that will be coming up next year. They are euthanasia, abortion and cannabis. This will not help Labour or the Greens and will put pressure on Peter given his conservation statements at the 2014 Family First Forum. Hopefully Family will make videos of the Forum online soon.

    • Why are you bothering to go to these other meetings Chucky. I thought you had decided to vote National and joined their party. Having second thoughts already? I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you don’t end up voting for winston yet again once the Nats piss you off. And they will. Just give them time.

      • I am voting National and am a voting delegate at the AGM in Christchurch. I will have a vote on the four Board members. I am at present drafting an email to the candidates about following National’s and particularly the one on the democratic process.

      • Sheesh, I just rejoined the Nats and went to see David Seymour and would go to the New Conservatives to listen, we would all like to influence policy by lobbying. I facebooked NZ First, am I a political whore? My vote is still only going to go one of two ways.

        Don Brash and Whaleoil have a lot to answer for much of the vote going to Winston, they overcame some of the normal scepticism based on Winston’s past behaviours.

    • Will Tamihere also give back the gst ACC claims from government on its expenses? JT knows how to make a great sound bite, but his track record on sound governance isn’t great.
      If Auckland only has a choice between Goff and Tamihere hold your collective noses folks – you’re in deep sh*t.

      • I don’t understand why the right don’t seriously get behind a candidate, surely having a right wing mayor in Akl would bode well for the whole country? why doesn’t Christine Fletcher run on her own, not as Tamihere’s deputy, with Michelle Boag helping ffs, isn’t that a mixed message?

          • Most of my Dad’s side of the family were die-hard Democrats for generations, and some (incl dad) refuse to discuss politics with me. The thing is it’s THEY who get enraged, not me….funny that! I’m the Anti-Christ politically 🙂

        • That’s the other thing the left hates- voter ID, for the same reason. It “disadvantages “people of colour, in other words they insult anyone who isn’t white as too dumb to get a driver’s license etc! I think it varies over there depending on the State/County you’re in.

          • The first step to allowing voter fraud in NZ

            And NZ is emulating the Democrat playbook on voter fraud. Firstly, they want to change the law to allow Brenton Tarrant to vote (along with all other inmates), now the man who can’t win a seat in his home town even though it used to be a Labour safe seat – Andrew Little has changed election laws to allow registration on the day (hard to avoid voter fraud if you have electoral office officials registering voters 30 secs before they vote). Think how soon we’ll be emulating those US states who have more votes cast than there are registered voters in the state!

  2. Here’s my quick and easy plan to solve many things all at once.
    Stop all immigration for one year – tomorrow – bang
    Stop the dole for one year – tomorrow bang – no ifs no butts
    This will free up housing.
    Free up jobs for those on the dole
    Reduce our welfare payments
    And allow our taxes to be reduced.

  3. Posted late last night and I think worth repeating for the morning.

    So just where are the Europeans looking for the next terrror attacker?
    How many white supremacists under the beds? ?
    Though it seems quite a few attacks are based on “ethno nationalist” “separatist”

    2018
    24 of last year’s attacks were jihadist in nature
    19 were left-wing
    1 was right-wing.
    https://www.statista.com/chart/18544/foiled-failed-and-completed-terrorist-attacks-in-the-eu/
    2017
    33 jihadist attacks
    24 left-wing attacks.
    ?5 right wing attacks?

    I would hope we are looking in the right direction from where terror attacks could come from. 🙂

  4. I wonder if the Chinese refer to Ardern and the rest of the CoL as Baizuo.

    The question has received more than 400 answers from Zhihu users, which include some of the most representative perceptions of the ‘white left’. Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are hypocritical humanitarians who advocate for peace and equality only to “satisfy their own feeling of moral superiority”; they are “obsessed with political correctness” to the extent that they “tolerate backwards Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism”; they believe in the welfare state that “benefits only the idle and the free riders”; they are the “ignorant and arrogant westerners” who “pity the rest of the world and think they are saviours”.

  5. Winnie is having a few drinks with his mate Pete down at the Viaduct. Well into the second bottle of Glenmorangie he pukes down the front of his shirt – looks at Pete and says “Jan’s going to kill me when she sees I got so hammered I spewed all over my new shirt !”

    Pete pulls a $10 note out of his wallet, slips it into Winnie’s shirt pocket and says “just tell Jan that a drunk vomited all over you and gave you $10 to dry clean your shirt.”

    Jan meets him at the door, and Winnie tells her that a drunk had vomited on him and given him $10 to have his shirt cleaned. Jan reaches into his pocket – and says “but this is $20 not $10 !”

    “Ah yeah” – replies Winnie – “that’s because he shat my pants as well !”

  6. For Rachael Membery
    It’s one of the world’s most incredible, yet mysterious, fish species. But years after high-level calls for a moratorium on the commercial exploitation of longfin eels, they continue to be fished and exported live overseas. The species may be on the brink of a critical tipping point, as Charlie Mitchell reports in the first of a two-part series.

  7. It’s inevitable deportees will turn to crime – Goff
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/393810/it-s-inevitable-deportees-will-turn-to-crime-goff
    “The Auckland mayor says it is inevitable people deported from Australia will revert to criminal activity, because they have no support when they arrive.

    Interesting logic there Phil because obviously they were deported from Australia for criminal behaviour even though that had the “support” over their you refer too, so was the offending in Australia ” inevitable” as well?.
    Here is a more simple explanation even Phil might grasp.
    They were pieces of crap in Australia and on being deported to NZ they carried on being pieces of crap.

    And they have also been able to keep those boat invaders out of their country!
    It gives us the hope that we can do the same

  9. Neighbours who opposed felling of Titirangi kauri tree ordered to pay court costs
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/114028761/neighbours-who-opposed-felling-of-400yearold-titirangi-kauri-tree-ordered-to-pay-court-costs
    “Two residents who took a group of developers to court in an attempt to save a centuries-old kauri tree have been ordered to pay $30,000 in court fees”.

    Suppose being a busy body can be an expensive exercise at times as they have now found out.
    More awards of costs against litigants who try and stop people going about their legal business need to be made to try and stop mob rule developing in the country.

  10. Have to admit I am so wracked with guilt this morning I might need a hug from Jacinda.
    The victory by the Crusaders last night was a complete insult to the Muslim community and just to rub salt in the wound they had the audacity to celebrate their victory.
    Losing as a show of solidarity with the victims would have been much more appropriate.

  11. Poor treatment of gout crippling Māori communities
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/shows/2019/07/poor-treatment-of-gout-crippling-m-ori-communities.html
    “A Māori pharmacist is on a mission to break the myths around gout – an arthritis Māori are almost three times more likely to suffer from.
    Gout is often called the diseases of kings because of its links to diets high in rich food. However, Te Karu says myths around diet being the major contributing factor for it aren’t true.
    We do know that there is this genetic variance in the way that Māori and Pacific Island people handle this thing called uric acid.
    Te Karu says having high uric acid levels was an advantage in the times of Polynesian sea voyage – because it allowed people to store salt and food”.

    So now we seem to have special Maori pharmacists who unsurprisingly conclude that high levels of gout in Maori is nothing to do with poor lifestyle choices but simply a genetic hangover from ancient seafaring times.
    How quaint.

  12. Government announces major changes to family care policy

    The Government has announced a major overhaul of disabilities funding which will see parents and spouses paid up to $25.50 an hour to look after family members.
    The changes will come into effect in 2020 once legislation has gone through a Select Committee process. Budget 2019 has allocated $32 million to help fund these changes.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/07/government-announces-major-changes-to-family-care-policy.html

    It was so important that it has to wait till election year.
    Certainly needed attending too although 25.50 is a high rate. Hope the taxman is watching.

    • The rot started in the education system and has spread from there.
      If kids can’t pass exams because they feel too pressured and maths is too hard lets do away with it and introduce internally assessed kapa haka studies instead.
      This way more kids will leave school with the qualifications they need to really make a difference in the workforce and no one feels like they failed.

    • Quite honsetly, looking at some of these young police officers on the beat , I am amazed they passed the currernt police fitness test. Apparently police HQ has said the current test will not be changed because it is world leading and has a gold standard rating. I don’t know how they arrive at that conclusion.

        • It’s been like that for a while. I remember an arrest under Clarkenfuhrer’s reign. He was a small scrawny plainclothes police “person” trying to arrest an average sized male.

          All he could do was occupy the “bigger” male’s attention until his buddies turned up in a cop car. He didn’t dare try and put cuffs on by himself. When the average male was distracted by the vehicle (who wouldn’t be when the car might have hit him going up onto the berm) the scrawny cop got his cuffs out and did the arrest.

          I’m so glad I didn’t get involved, I was close to doing so and was thinking about slapping the scrawny male down since I thought he was the antagonist.

          I didn’t believe that the police would recruit someone so tiny.

          There have been other occasions where I’ve just been walking through a troubled area and the police have thanked me for my presence, i.e. I’ve been more physically intimidating to the crooks than they were.

      • That will be Mike Bush stamping his mark. If a cop gets pinged for driving with excess BA he had better start looking for a new job.

        Unlike Mike who kept his job for the same offence.

        One thing about Mike he does look after the troops and has purchased more kit and increased arms training. Might come in handy if firearms owners don’t like the buy back offers.

      • The part I enjoyed about the crap was the mention of beer cans filling up the sound. Cans in that era were mostly made of steel as opposed to aluminium.

        I wouldn’t think that half a century later there’d be much in the way of evidence left of cans dropped into brackish water.

        • Ahh, another Saffa on this blog. I get tons of abuse over at KB for simply being a South African. I’ll never forget the confusion at the first school I taught at when I arrived in 1996, they all thought I would be a racist bigot who hated Blacks, and couldn’t work out why I didn’t fit the stereotype they were expecting. I couldn’t work out why New Zealand had so much race-based legislation.

          • Facebook is absolutely terrible for being a Saffa. Any political discussion there, the socialists will profile snoop, troll, etc. The number of times I was told to “Go back to your home country” by some xenophobic twat is amazing. Usually when you make a disparaging remark about Jacinda or her ilk.

            It got so bad they found my wife and were threatening her. Indirectly, but enough to say goodbye to the platform. Victory for the virtuous left, I suppose.

            I’ve lived here for nearly two decades, my children were born here, allmost all my romantic life was had here. Yeah, I was born in South Africa. But I’m a Kiwi now and a Kiwi by choice. And have probably paid more tax in my lifetime than the bennies bitching on Facebook.

            I’m still fucked off about that. As you can probably tell 🙂

      • I agree.
        We have the situation where outsiders come to NZ and peddle their shit but hey ‘NZ is bad’.

        The prime example was an Australian, Tarrant, coming here and shooting up people who for the most part were themselves only recently arrived.

        These ones like the original post story come here and don’t integrate and exploit just like they do in the old country/former shithole.

        The Asian community does large amounts of business activity for cash (no tax capture… or payment for Govt services) . The price for non payment is usually brutal.
        I encountered one situation about 15 years ago where I was and the local Asian guy I was dealing with (S. E. Asia) explained that on the 20th of the month the supplier of materials came for payment and you fronted up with cash on the day. Or Else. The amount for the previous month was $15,000.
        Paid in cash on the day in a satchel. Simples!
        There are no problems. It is a cash money go round. Don’t pay and you will miss body parts.

        With that story in the MSM – who ever knows what the truth is?
        I don’t give a fig tree for either party.
        The complainer will no more respect our laws than the alleged perpetrator.

    • They approved the leave. If he walked out, sure, fair game. But if you, as an employer, approve the leave then you’re in for the 15 weeks. Shame, the restaurant made nice curries too. Good for a quick feed if you’re just passing through Wanaka.

  14. Kim Darroch, the British ambassador to the US, described US President Donald Trump as “inept” and “incompetent” in diplomatic memos to his bosses at the UK Foreign Office, according to media reports.

    It’s understood Darroch used cables and briefing notes to comment on Trump and those who surround him. Trump’s White House was “uniquely dysfunctional” and given to “knife fights,” Darroch said.

    Darroch, 65, a former national security adviser to the UK government and a career diplomat, has been the British ambassador in Washington since January 2016.

I wouldn’t bet on Jacinda holding fast as she will do anything to be elected for a second term and if that means to appease Maori it will be done.

  17. The lazy sods didn’t want to mow the berms all those years ago; so now people have done it themselves. While still paying the bloated council and their cohorts exorbitant rates for basically stuff all. Well, apart from the giant erections Phill Goff makes in his honour like that mirror art exhibition on Lorne Ave.

    Now Auckland Transport, the biggest waste of ratepayer funds, is wanting to fine ratepayers for parking on the berms? Because the ratepayers make them look untidy?

    I’m glad they lost the first part of that battle. I’m saddened that it means they’ll be spending up to $50,000 per street now to put up the no-parking signs.

    Either way, these damn councils will find a way to screw the poor ratepayer over. We should be getting rid of Auckland Council and Auckland Transport.
