  1. The animosity from farmers and tradies has started already with the Governments I’ll thought out policy of taxing gas guzzlers and discounting electric vehicle’s.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/07/farmers-tradies-angered-by-government-s-proposed-fees-for-high-emissions-vehicles.html
    Trademan are asking how the can transport their tool to a job of they don’t have a large vehicle and saying prices will rise if the Government keep deciding to penalize them.
    This Government wants to know why business confidence is a all time low well here is one of the answer’s .

    • Given that damned near every deluded first-world country has stated their intention to only manufacture electric cars and horse-drawn wagons in about three years and the fact that tradies are such terrible drivers they need to replace their vehicles every year or so where are the tradies going to get their large gas-guzzlers from?

            Why do Ladas have a heater for the back window?
            To keep your hands warm when pushing.

            What is found on the last two pages of every Lada owner’s manual?
            The bus schedule.

                  The Russians were the only buyers for our ever growing butter and dairy product mountain.

          • New Zealand missed the opportunity to nuclear power a small coastal city.

            [Russia] to offer up a pair of fighter jets and a nuclear submarine as payment. ….
            …. “The Russians were trying to come up with lines of credit ….
            …. pointed out that MiG jets were highly desirable and that they also had surplus tanks ….
            …. then offered a nuclear submarine to wipe out Russia’s buttery debt. ….
            ….. he suggested hooking the vessel up to the national grid and using it as a power plant for a coastal city. ….

            The diggers, tractors, can all plug into those portable generators.
            That is what generators do, make electricity. 🙂

            Just wait until they subsidize the system, like already the windmills etc., particularly something like batteries to kick started by some provincial “cargo”money gift.

            The “intelligient” subsidized Elon Musk can not be too far away. 🙁

            It will become like who can get into that system, as the Venezuelans did when petrol was so subsidized that billions of $ of it were smuggled out.
            That made life bearable until :-
            Eventually the subsidies were curbed.
            Then the real plight that government put them in was fully revealed.

          • The COL will simply make diggers, tractors and 18 wheelers illegal, with no thought about the consequences to our lives.

          Don’t make assumptions. We are no longer living in a free country, and the sooner we wake up and realise this the more chance we have to do something about it.

    • The Mad Queen’s CoL doesn’t care about logic or reasonableness or any of the things sensible commenters here talking about. They only care about “fairness”, not the sort of fairness that the fair-minded people on YSB appreciate.

      The Mad Queen only cares about marxist fairness, which is a fairness of outcome. Marxism sees homogeneity of the proletariat as a posidive. In the case of this policy, the fairness is that everyone is in a similar state of restricted mobility. If beneficiaries can’t afford to have nice cars and do long trips, then marxist fairness dictates that everyone should be similarly constrained.

      Everything the adorable CoL does is about controlling the masses and beating down anyone who gets ahead (if you get ahead that’s unfair on someone everyone else who hasn’t).

      And so long as we have MMP, we’re going to continue to have governments like this one. As long as we have MMP, we’re going to run the risk every three years of allowing creeping Marxism (sadly we don’t have a centre right party to roll back the insanity of the Marxists for the nine years they’re in power).

  4. Pharmac spends tens of millions on Oxycontin:

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/111691539/pharmac-has-spent-tens-of-millions-on-oxycontin-blamed-for-americas-opioid-crisis

    “Pharmac has spent tens of millions of dollars funding a painkiller at the centre of the American opioid crisis. Experts say it has created a whole new population of drug users. National Correspondent Tony Wall investigates.

    Oxycodone, known by its brand name OxyContin or more colloquially as ‘Hillbilly Heroin’, was meant to be an alternative for people who didn’t tolerate morphine.”

    “If you say ‘I’m going to put you on morphine’ … they say ‘hell, don’t do that’. They’re petrified of it and yet the irony is that oxycodone is twice as strong as morphine.”

    • This prescription medicine, possibly has a legitimate market, like for terminal illness, cancer pain patients.

      However it is has been marketed legitimately through the medical system.
      The money that company made, helped to mask, hide the testing, blind the feed back, so that it could seem to be legitimate.

      This can be another feed in to other drugs, as people can become desperate, to solve their ‘pain problems’ and / or to replicate the euphoria that they had in taking that drug.

      A big part of the problem is that many authorities do not recognize the easily addictive part of this drug, and the immediate problems of withdrawal symptoms.
      It is put that the patients “abuse the drug” and so it is a “drug of abuse”.
      What is not pointed out is the desperation that the person feels,

      The symptoms of oxycodone withdrawal, as with other opioids, may include “anxiety, panic attack, nausea, insomnia, muscle pain, muscle weakness, fevers, and other flu-like symptoms” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxycodone

      For myself when prescription medicated, was the hiccups, constipation, and then after the euphoria, the so realistic anxiety nightmares that not only do I still recall, but could write a very realistic terrifying “Game of thrones” with people that I personally know. That was after major surgery and probably on morphine.

      At wiki’s link look how it was marketed, to give increased amount of pills per prescription, but still for a 12 hour period, though the pain killing effects had worn off in 7 to 8 hours.

          Peters, on the other hand, has proven thus far impossible to stamp out. No matter how discredited he is, he finds enough gullible idiots to get him back into the halls of power.

          If anything, she’s the slime that Peters feeds on.

    • Winston is the product of the problem. The real problem is MMP, a system that 3 times out of 8 MMP elections has made Winston the kingmaker.

      Winston is the perfect MMP animal. There is nothing about MMP that engenders thinking of the national good, MMP rewards the self-serving. And as a lawyer, Winston is able to put aside right and wrong and make decisions on what benefits him the most – this is an MMP phenomenon. All forms of PR take the power away from the majority and puts it in the hand of the most amoral minority.

      When Winston is gone, there’ll be another Winston following his methods.

      MMP is the great evil, we can tell this because all the insane socialists love it!

      Will they be able to stop an aeroplane, or an air port because they can claim it is emitting a dangerous pollution?

      Will this allow road blocks. check points, that will hold up “gas guzzling” vehicles?

      How will our judiciary blend this into adjudication and effect our current laws?
      Like more than just “wet bus tickets” but no convictions because the motives now could be considered to be “pure”?

      Will those councils then be expected to give some financial resources to the “climate change”- “”warriors””?

        • There must be some treaty right 🙂 so that ‘rangatira’ have some exemptions for the vehicles they will drive around in.
          There must be exemptions for ‘maori trusts’ as well.

          So that loop hole allows a limit for the import of up to 3 vehicles to be imported by a private person.

          Sort of like Venezuela, when they allowed their citizen to quietly smuggle out the subsidized very cheap petrol to neighbouring countries.
          It then became a racket, until the government realized the billions of dollars cost flow and can not afford the subsidies.

            so not are they coming for your taxes on vehicles but they will be there to collect your boat tax.
            I seem to recall some other arse wipe from the Nats tried that. Got a right bollocking and destroyed the boat building industry. That, of course, will be ok with cindy because it makes it fair. you will have to use canoes for fishing like all the fucking wokes.
            Fuck govt. give me the shits. I’m sure you have noticed. meanwhile, mt tenants who struggle every week are getting shafted more and more. They are not happy campers. But hey I’m gonna put their rents up till it hurts. Then they you think. might vote better.

        • Peters may have left it a bit late.

          One of the reasons is that Trump will be sucking out all the oxygen in the news in the US presidential election. TDS will be in full swing. Unless Peters does outrageous things, I doubt he’ll get any oxygen from our press.

          I know it has been speculated that the Ardern is getting married in part by the generous tax-payer (a free trip to the Cook Islands). I doubt it. I still maintain that she’ll deliberately attempt to stage the wedding to maximise a positive press cycle for our 2020 election, thus depriving Peters of whatever remaining oxygen Trump hasn’t already claimed.

          No, I doubt there is a single thing Peters can do that won’t get him “chucked out once again in 2020” (for Pascal). If he really tries (and I hope he does) to get attention, he may end up negatively impacting the Greens and Labour.

          • Having been married to one, plenty. Some, not all of them are alpha.
            Speaking for myself, my first husband was the flame that the moths were drawn to, the joker, the life and soul of the party, the teller of tales. He picked me when he could have picked any of the others, so I was flattered I guess. He never got the opportunity to cheat on me though as I realised when our son was three months old that I didn’t want that lifestyle for him. But women were always going to throw themselves at him.

            There is an element of the rescuer in women though, of saving seemingly self destructive men from themselves by giving them a familial purpose. We think that we know better of course.

            I might add that I thought that I could save my second husband also, never again. Weak men need strong women to look after them but that is different to men not wanting to be saved.

      • If other mammals are to go by (e.g. lions, bears, rabbits and camels), it’s a really base instinct in the male of the mammal species to wipe out the offspring of another male. These cases in the human species are almost always ferals, and ferals are the lowest rung on our society. Ergo, they run on base instinct.

        (I suspect dolphin cows fuck all the bulls in the pod as a survival instinct: the bulls could all be the potential father of the calf, thus killing the calf is potentially killing one’s genetic lineage).

  7. I see a Chinese electronic surveillance ship will cruise just outside Australia’s territorial waters and spy on war games being held in Queensland.

    A supposed security expert said that will present a great opportunity to test electronic jamming measures on this Chinese vessel.

    Yeah, right. We jam Chinese surveillance, and they go home to work on Plan B. Where do these supposed experts pop up from? This is exactly what the Chinese will be expecting. We would be better just plonking a satellite over them and scanning what electronic emanations the ship gives off.

          Taiwan wants continued independence from the PRC. China wants Taiwan. At the moment, Trump has been prepared to give the PRC the middle finger over Taiwan. I suspect Taiwan remains safe until the US elects another dimwit like Obama.

    “A rare type of snail only found on a specific hill in Wellington is being threatened by mountain bikers’ unauthorised trails, an ecological group says”.

    So anyway some snails are under threat apparently but what interested me more was this bubbly little piece of fluff from Bronwen Shephard about why they are so important:
    “What’s so wonderful about these creatures is despite their size, they’re so important to the ecology,” she said. “Not just of the local environment, but science has proven over and over again that it’s the little critters that contribute to the essential ecological processes that maintain … and sustain all life.
    “They’re so critical to all of us, as a human species.”

    So critical to all of us as a human species yet they are found only on one hill in Wellington.
    You are so full of shit lady.

    • Have you not heard of Chaos Theory (or the butterfly effect)? It’s feasible but highly improbable that eliminating these snails will cause our downfall.

      Did you not know that when the dodo went extinct, that was the day humans went extinct? Likewise the Moa and Haast Eagle…

    • I didn’t follow how politicians answered questions much until I watched Jay Carney the former press secretary of Obama answered questions on the behalf of his boss.

      His sublime use of ignorance was something to behold. He wielded ignorance like a surgeon’s scalpel. But not knowing anything, he was able to deflect any criticism; it was like trying to pin jelly to a wall. If something topical had been on all the news networks, he’d never seen any of them. If there was a report, he’d never read it. The man knew nothing (or at least claimed to know absolutely nothing).

      I don’t know if Carney invented ignorance as the best way to answer political questions but it sure was effective.

      It was a bit like watching Senator Cruz trying to get information out of Google’s Maggie Stanphil over Project Veritas’ report on Google. She didn’t know anything either. She had a “day job” on why she didn’t know anything.

      Ignorance seems to have become the du jour for answering political questions, especially on the Left.

  12. Never rile up a westie.

    National Party deputy leader Paula Bennett has blasted proposed penalties on high-emissions vehicles, claiming they’re just another tax on hard-working Kiwis.

    The Government announced it’s considering a “feebate” scheme, which would lower the cost of lower emission, hybrid or electric vehicles while adding a fee to bigger cars like utes and SUVs.

        I don’t know who said it but in NZ the modern Nat’s main argument or USP is that they promise to be better at managing the decline of NZ than the left.
        I hate the Greens and Labour yet even I will admit that when they are in power they don’t miss the chance to do things for their supporters, they do it in a positive and non-apologetic manner. Compare this to the last National government who used to say they would give tax cuts then back down as soon as the left wing media kicked up a fuss. The Nat’s need to stop fucking apologising for being of the right.

        • I agreed fully BB until the last sentence.
          No uptick for you, lad!

          It is interesting that National/Labour lite are associated with tax cuts but they have not given one this century.
          In 2010 they did a tax swap with raising GST and reducing and cleaning up personal income rates and bands.
          They never even bothered to index rates/tax bands in their nine years of neglect in order to offset fiscal drag.
          So now they are snowflakes on a mountain in a far off wilderness with a soy boy in charge they say they will do it next time.
          But they also said they will reform their own 1991 RMA but never did in 9 years of rip van winkle.
          They did pay a shitload out to the Maoris. They also said that would be all settled by 2013.
          Another lie.
          I often wonder if Labour lite has ever told the truth.
          At least Klarkenfuhrer had a pledge card of points in 1999 that she followed through on.
          So Layabout light ethics are well short of Helen Klark.
          Think about that!

          It is odd how National/Labour lite get this completely wrong branding:-
          They are associated with tax reductions but don’t do them.
          It was Labour 1984 to circa 1988 that did this and cleaned out the 17 or so tax bands down to 4 or so bands. Under National/L.L it was 66% top rate and you got there quickly.

          National sometimes get called Tories but are nothing of the sort.
          They swan around ultimately doing Sweet FA but when they do something it usually a gigantic cock up e.g. under Bolger they stuffed up the power industry and the building materials industry which lead to leaky homes and cost as much money and grief as the Christchurch earthquakes spread over the whole country and over more years.

          They complete neutered the Auckland Regional Council (ARC) in 1991 which meant no regional oversight for Auckland and then in 2010 rushed through the disastrous Auckland Council merger.

          I still party voted for the pricks in 2011/14/17 with great disdain.
          Never again.
          It is like having unprotected sex with a diseased hooker to vote for that sick, lying mob.
          Either way you get fked and end up with bad outcomes.

  13. Cricket – leadership failure Williamson

    Kane Williamson is a perfect example of why being a great player does not equate to being a great leader.

    I was in physical agony through the first few overs of the cricket last night. I felt physical pain as poor Guptill when through ball by ball death of his confidence, every time he waved the bat pathetically at every passing Bumrah delivery I cringed.

    Why on earth would you continue to put a guy through that. It must be obvious that Guptill is woefully out of form and that just adding pressure is making it worse and worse for the poor bastard. Sure, Guptill wants to keep his spot on the team. He doesn’t want to be replaced. But letting a guy fail and fail and fail, when his confidence is so obviously rock bottom is terrible leadership. If the aim is to destroy Martin Guptill has a batting force – then this is how you do it.

    Real leadership would be to step up and be a real leader and put the good of the team and the individual first and make the hard call to replace Guptill so that he can take the time needed to rebuild his game and regain his confidence.

    Sure on his day Guptill is magnificent. But surely no one expected Guptill to go out against the best bowler in the world and survive last night. If there’d been odds offered on Guptill’s innings last night I’m certain that the TAB wouldn’t have been taking any bets of the “fail” option for him.

    I think Capt Kane is mistaking:
    – loyalty for leadership, and
    – blind faith for strategy.

    Kane is a soyboy, he’s not leadership material. There is no mongrel to him. Kohli is a leader, he is demanding of his team when they screw up and effusively praiseful when they succeed. He drops players when he think it suits the team or when they fail to peform, he makes decisions based on winning not on his feelings.

    I still hope that between the Black Caps themselves and the weather, that they can pull off a win against India. But I do hope Kane Williamson puts aside his inner Jack Tame and leaves Guptill out in the final against Australia – you can’t afford to play Australia starting with a guaranteed one wicket down.

    He let the Aussies off the hook when he had them on the ropes at 82/5, let’s hope he doesn’t give them a one batter head start if they make it to the final.

    (And btw Kane, that beard is bad, it doesn’t make you look more manly, it’s just urgh!)

        Located right in the heart of Gisborne city, Eastland Port is New Zealand’s second largest log exporter and the most easterly commercial shipping port in New Zealand. We’re proud to be the country’s most efficient logging port.

        Our local forestry industry continues to grow, providing opportunity and employment for our entire region. Log export volumes are booming. We can handle 3 million tonnes of wood per year but we need to handle more than 5 million tonnes. We’re getting ready with our twin berth planned development.

    In a pre sentence report the probation officer said that Tierney had a great attitude and a good job”.

    So he has a great attitude to what?, gratuitous violence maybe!.
    So 21 months in jail for sharing the Christchurch mosque video but 9 months home detention for beating two people senseless.

    Where: University of Waikato S Block (S.1.04)

    Are there any climate change sceptics prepared to join me to challenge these clowns who claim to be scientists?
