    • Actually it shows how out of touch local body politicians are.

      People don’t come to live in places like NZ’s South Island to live in a bloody inner-city apartment, they come for the life style that includes a stand-alone house on a hunk of land that includes a garage, children’s play area (or old-farts garden), local, community shopping/social area, farm gate type vegetable and fruit markets as well as easy, often within minutes, access to rural recreation areas (beaches, rivers, mountains etc).

      Most people coming/living here also want to live as far away from fucking pollies as possible!

  1. It seems the task group into Labour law reform are “Illusory “.
    https://i.stuff.co.nz/business/114081553/think-tank-says-arguments-used-to-back-controversial-labour-law-reform-are-illusory
    Decades of work productivity growth, a falling share of the pie being given to workers and a “race to the bottom” led by bad employers were all put forward for the basis for a new controversial law tool, but a new report claims evidence for a fair play agreement is a Illusion with the Governments working groups report at times verging on misleading claims.

    • My response if you word it carefully they will most likely print it, make it known how pissed off you are with this train wreck col and yes small steps matter vent everywhere you can fk the consequences.
      “So did the people that voted for the most incompetent govt in NZ history not realise the unions run it because everyone else knew Ardern even admitted they had to kowtow to the teachers unions as payback for their support & money i would say the jokes on you but it’s on all of us”

    • I have to say, trying to figure out what they actually stand for is incredibly difficult. I only want to vote for candidates who are for doing the council’s core business and nothing more. Trying to figure out the ones who want to be generous with ratepayer’s money is difficult.

  2. Clean car discount to encourage low emission vehicle purchase
    https://embed.radionz.co.nz/news/political/393928/government-s-clean-car-discount-fees-for-high-emission-vehicles-would-offset-efficiency-subsidy

    Heavy vehicles such as SUV’s and utes to subsidise clean car emission vehicles to encourage purchasing of electric, hybrid or clean burning vehicles.

    “She said it was only fair that the discounts be financed by “small fees” on the most polluting vehicles. For example, a brand new Toyota Land Cruiser – which retails for more than $100,000 – would be hiked $3000.

    “That gives people flexibility – they can still buy that car, but this ensures that they also help clean up the rest of the fleet,” Ms Genter said.”

    • More correctly, that’s the modus operandi of the Fabian Society (gradualism). Labour and the NZ Fabian Society are joined at the hip since inception, the Green Party have been involved with them for some time and more recently the Winston First party (Tracey Martin 2015).

      The Fabian Society is opposed to blatant revolution and prefers implementing the socialist utopia via stealth, a little by little. They play the long game. Unfortunately for us, it is rare for National to reverse this gradualism.

No the Govt has not won or lost the war on poverty you stopped reporting on it after saint Jacinda was gifted an election like everything else that was a major crisis under National yet disappeared off our screens at around the same time, did our poxy media finally realise they cant hide the truth from the NZ public any longer as the list of lies & deceipts grow

    • It’s taken a while for the “Get woke, go broke” narrative to hit Deutsche Bank.

      Deutsche Bank: refugees ‘best thing’ to happen to Germany

      While critics call the newcomers a financial burden, one of Germany’s top economists has praised them as a ‘huge opportunity’ for Europe’s biggest economy. Migrants, he says, could help boost Germany on the global stage.

      Refugees were “the best thing that’s happened [to Germany] in 2015,” Deutsche Bank chief economist David Folkerts-Landau said on Monday.

      In an interview with German daily “Die Welt,” Folkerts-Landau called the influx of migrants seeking a fresh start in Europe’s biggest economy “a huge opportunity.”

  4. I wonder when our esteemed leaders (both in the CoL and National) will be correct on our criminals being law-abiding? It’s not as if people didn’t try and tell them that bringing in harsh firearm laws only punishes the law-abiding.

    Former All Blacks captain Richie McCaw has also been the target and has had enough.

    “A spokesman for McCaw, Halo Sport chief executive Simon Porter, said the former All Blacks number seven was keen to comment on his likeness being used without his permission.

    “You can choose to look at this sort of unauthorised use of image a couple of ways,” Porter said, on behalf of McCaw.”

  8. I saw Matthew Hooton (& others) suggest on Newshub Nation that our surrendered guns should be melted down and turned into a memorial to the Christchurch massacre.
    Does anybody else have a problem with this idea?
    Many if not most of the surrendered guns will have come from honest law abiding citizens – not the target groups – and most of these will have taken a massive hit in the pocket when surrendering their guns.
    I find this suggestion offensive – do you?

    “Pou whenua have always been important to our people. They establish a footprint and provide a tangible sense of Ngāi Tahu mana in our takiwā. Ngāi Tahu are the kaitiaki or guardians of this land; we must ensure it is protected for us, and our children after us.”
    The pou is the first of several that will be installed in the Ngāti Waewae takiwā.”.

    More superstitious idolatry cluttering up the landscape.

    • Wow, that’ll teach him:

      The judge fined him $1000 over both charges and ordered him to do 9 months supervisions.

      He disqualified him from driving for 28 days and ordered him to get an interlock device that would mean he was unable to drive a car if he had any alcohol in his system for a year.

      Why not order a round of golf at the same time?

          Yes, driving another vehicle was the first thing I thought of how to get around the “court order”.

          The other way I thought of was simply bypassing the interlock but that seems to be more difficult and can apparently signal out that it has been tampered with, so, if magically installed, it should prove difficult for the bastard to get around. It won’t prevent him from simply driving a different vehicle.

        • It’s 2 x $1000, so $2000. However, at $4 per month (the likely penalty[1]) it will only take 500 months (or 41 2/3 years) to repay.

          [1] Admittedly, I’m being cynical but in a former role I got see how much was expected to be paid in a period, and yes one of them was $4 per month…for something like $100k in damages awarded against.

  11. Netflix to include smoking warnings in its rating system, future original content to be smoke-free
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/entertainment/2019/07/netflix-to-include-smoking-warnings-in-its-rating-system-future-original-content-to-be-smoke-free.html
    “Netflix’s cigarette crackdown will see smoking listed alongside sex and violence in their online rating system – “so members can make informed choices about what they watch.”

    So we now need to be protected from seeing cigarettes in movies in case it harms viewers.
    What’s next I wonder for the thought police?.
    Warnings for meat consumption in movie scenes?.
    Warnings for speeding and lack of seat belt use in car chases?.
    Warnings for excess CO2 emissions from non fuel efficient vehicles used in the movie?.
    Warnings for movies depicting gun use?.

    The world really is becoming a bunch of fucking crybabies.

  13. As the Crown summary of facts on the case describes it, Mohamed responded by telling his victim that she was going to have sexual intercourse with him “whether she like it or not”.

    He locked the vehicle and began touching the woman on her arms and legs and then, in spite of her pleas for him to stop, he began rubbing her genitals over the top of her clothing.

    Mohamed became angry with his victim’s refusal to submit to his advances. He grabbed her neck tightly, causing her to struggle for breath. Then he began hitting her arms and legs and bit her arm.

    Then he got out and went around to the front passenger door, and grabbing her by her arm pulled her out of the car.

    Grabbing the woman’s neck with both hands he began strangling her. He kicked and punched her and pushed her to the ground.

    He stood over his victim, then grabbed her head and repeatedly bashed it into the asphalt.

  14. Angry Little went on a rant about Google recently, whereas it appears it is his portfolio that is incompetent, not Google.

    From Google:

    As part of our respect for New Zealand laws, we have worked for many years with law enforcement authorities. Google has provided special confidential forms to New Zealand law enforcement authorities to use to submit legal removal and other requests. Google also has a general webform in place where people can submit Court Orders, including suppression orders. This form is publicly available. By using these tools Google is able to act quickly on court orders and other removal requests that is receives.

    IOW, NZ’s authorities could have submitted a request to remove identification of the alleged killer of British tourist Grace Millane. I guess those people were too busy easy Maccas or equivalent to fill in a form.

    Little in name, Little in stature.

    The still-handsome Hoyt is on a different mission than back in the ’80s when he posed with Cindy and Naomi for celebrity photographers like Bruce Weber. In those years, he was also under the total control of a UFO doomsday cult called Eternal Values. Richards gave them all his earnings – about $45 million – but sued them to the ground after he finally managed to extract himself.

    Today, the 57-year-old warns about brainwashing, from esoteric teachings to ISIS. He’s often paired with a celebrity in his own right when it comes to understanding extremism: Steve Hassan, whose books on mind control and deprogramming have apparently saved some of the lives of the people entering the room with me. I’m the only New Zealander among more than 200 attendees, many of them Americans.

    • From Rachael’s link:

      …..”I’m touched as well when I listen to a panel of five young adults who all grew up in a fundamentalist Christian cult. One speaks about becoming a mother only two years after leaving, and not knowing how to discipline her toddler other than hitting him. “I had no other reference points.””…..

      These are the scum our God fearing, conservative, child-torturing proponents of smacking speak for when they unload their reactionary crap on us!

      • To be fair I think the supporters of smacking are a lot more broadly based than just religious people.
        I personally and statistically have not seen any tangible improvement in child welfare in NZ as a result of this law even though we were promised it would do this.
        Just more government intrusion into ordinary peoples lives where it was not really required or needed if you ask me.

        • A smack on the arse was never more than a circuit breaker but child punishment seldom stopped there.

          And while it may be “a lot more broadly based than just religious people” it is these same arseholes who have organised resistance to attempts to rein in gross abuse, along with opposition to assisted suicide & drug reform. It is they who consider Reefer Madness to be factual yet who turn a blind eye to a 17 stone PI Xtian woman giving her toddler a smack under the ear that sends the kid half way up a supermarket aisle. It is they who ignore Xtian children being beaten with horsewhips, alkathene pipe, jug cords, vacuum cleaner hoses & 4x2s.

          Rather than live perfect lives for their imaginary Skydaddy they have to poke their snouts into what non-believers do. They can’t fucking help themselves!

              There has never been a parliamentarian yet who hasn’t thought that two more laws would create a perfect society. Because of this we are like a bunch of primary kids being held in class because one farted.

              That said, if we can be breath tested at whim & prevented from maiming local body inspectors on sight we can suck up & do everything possible to prevent child bashing.

      And both have to work in different parts of town?

      So what about the 1 car family?
      All this pontificating as if the government is showing you how to be a winner.

      As you point howitis, all so illogical, and in the mean time, many of the taxpayers will have stress and work harder, to be taxed, fees, levied, rated, licensed, permits, etc.. until they decide the golden goose, is gutted.

      Why work so hard? So soon an easing up, and just take it easy.
      Why worry about productivity?

    Turkey’s Western allies and rights groups have criticised the scale of the crackdown, saying President Tayyip Erdogan has used the abortive coup as a pretext to quash dissent.
