    • 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”

  2. Local bodies wonder why there is such a low voter turnout.
    Maybe its because the bureaucrats run things and therefore councilors (and voters) have no say.

    • 1. None at present. Apparently, there will be some threshold at which point EVs will pay RUCs. Until then, people like Ardern, get the poor to subsidise their smugness.

      2. The ever generous tax payer, that’s who.

    • Not surprised that Julie Anne Genter and Col would bring this in.

      about $8000 off the price of new or near-new imported electric vehicles (EVs). Fuel-efficient petrol cars would also be cheaper, while the heaviest-polluters would cost $3000 more. Vehicles with middling fuel efficiency would face neither a discount nor a fee.

      The scheme would cover all new and used light vehicles coming into the country. It would not apply to cars already on New Zealand roads.

      A new fuel efficiency standard would also be introduced, requiring importers to gradually reduce the average emissions of the vehicles they bring in.

    • Carless Days Mk II.

      An expensive process that uses direct govt intervention but did nothing for fuel consumption.
      Carless days did not achieve direct fuel saving (MOE real numbers) ; created a black market for ‘carless day stickers’ ; and caused massive inconvenience for many.

      Introduced in 1979 when Ardern was not even born, Genter was not even born, and little Jimmy Shaw was just starting primary school.

      And the real question- where does the extra electricity come from?
      Coal fired power stations it is.
      They won’t allow new dams for hydro electricity. Wind and solar is bollocks. Gas will be cut off.
      Yay for imported coal brought by diesel powered ships and adverse impact on Balance of Payments.
      Now I’m just trying to confuse them with economics and TLAs like GDP and GNI.

      • Coal fired power stations it is.

        I have read this kind of comment before on different blogs and heard it in conversation…. but I’m sorry to say that you’re completely mistaken.

        Whilst any normal person would assume that coal fired power stations would fill the demand, they don’t seem to have considered that these Marxist mongrels are perfectly capable of simply legislating against it. Exactly like they did to our oil & gas industry.

        There’s no way that coal fired power stations will have any future under any government that we’re likely to see. Ecomarxism has taken control of our country. There is literally no opposition. National are as complicit as the COL in this ecomadness.

  4. 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.

              chest to relieve cough and colds. The method has been used for hundreds of years.

      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.”

    “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.
    Wonder how much public koha this cost us all?.

      • Not sure about other people but the last thing I seek out when on holiday in a foreign country is “cultural experiences”.
        Apart from the fact most are just staged performances for tourists they also usually encompass some native wearing a funny costume and performing some stupid rituals which really nobody understands or gives a fuck about.
        False adulation from stupid foreigners just makes the whole thing even more nauseating.

    2 Does she think its fair that she goes on holiday, when all the poor people can’t even afford $5 to get their prescriptions.

      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.

          [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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.””…..

        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!

    “Explaining that her client had a “combined audience” of 55,000 followers across Instagram and Facebook, PR agent Melissa said her client would be happy to pay the company with “exposure” on social media.

    “In the lead-up to her wedding she would like a documentary style video (an hour long) and photos taken at bridal fittings which can be shared with her followers… On the day of the wedding she would like a video documenting the whole day and a package that includes approximately 1000 photos,” Melissa wrote.” …

    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.
