  1. Opinion polls had suggested a victory for left-leaning parties in the unpredictable election, which saw 10 parties competing for seats. But the centre-right Independence Party took the largest share of votes, winning 16 seats, seven of them held by women. The centrist Progressive Party celebrated the biggest gain, winning 13 seats, five more than last time.




  2. That photo was taken a long time ago, she sure as hell doesn’t look like that now. What a wet pathetic look that partner of hers has in that photo. And they are planning a wedding for the end of the year…. Fuckkkkkkk,



  3. A serious question, Is the bandy emaciated horsefaced creature making ALL government decisions on where our Country is heading both economically and socially ???
    There’s a reason for that level of control , WEAK COWARDLY MEN IN HER CLOSE CIRCLE ..



    • I actually find the idea of door to door testing extremely disturbing, i assume the laws still stand from 1st round of lockdown that state theres a public health order and you must submit to being tested when directed to do so?

      If they do listen to that pedo looking cnut and go door to door it will set a prescedent and the writing is on the wall for what theyll try do with vax hesitant



      • A mask wearing jobsworth camped on my front steps wouldn’t end well. I was in Mitre 10 in Whangarei yesterday in the open air plant section dutifully following head office around. Mask compliance looked 100% and the place was choka. I have trouble breathing in a mask due to gag reflex, so I had my mask down off my nose. An employee was eyeing me up for a compliance hit, but backed away when I glared at her. What struck me most was how quickly people can turn from low I.Q unfortunates working on a Sunday for minimum wage into a card carrying nazi who would cheerfully dob their own grandmother in to make Jacinda and the team happy. My wife suggested I get a mask exemption which would be no problem, but I pointed out it would make no difference I would still end up making an explanation to a moronic clone who would no doubt accuse me of lying and probably get flattened. Thanks for turning N.Z into East Germany or North Korea Cindy.



      • Just got in from work. Quick stop at the bottleshop
        to get some refreshments. Didn’t bother with a Cindy nappy. The bloke at the counter wasn’t concerned. There was another customer masked up. He looked very surprised that I was not wearing a Cindy nappy. I’ve had enough of this control shit, as I am sure most of you good folks have too. Fuck off BloomFAILED and fuck off Ardern.



  4. Please spare a thought for Mrs Rissole who is having a 2 hr eye operation this morning.

    Fortunately Fanny* is a brave soul and a good patient. Rissole will do all the dishes and organise dinner etc etc etc.

    My concern is I may have over-egged the custard a little in my description of myself to Fanny. I have told her all our marriage that the Brigadier looks like a fit 18 year old recruit.

    * Mrs Rissole is named after her famous great great grandmother Fanny Cockspindle who knitted 500 wool jumpers in front of the French guillotine at Place de la Revolution in Paris in 1794.



  5. Wake up buttheads…aww, thats right, Im behind you lot. As you were.
    Hobsons Pledge latest.
    “He Puapua lead planner says Govt ‘lacks legitimacy’
    It’s questionable that the New Zealand Government has any legitimacy, the state must give up some power, and New Zealand has a lopsided view of democracy, which should not be tyranny of the majority.

    These are the views of Dr Claire Charters who was commissioned by the Ardern Government to create, with others, a plan to implement in New Zealand the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. See Securing rangatiratanga

    He Puapua, which is the name of the plan her working group created, is a radical revision of our government into two racially divided spheres, one by Maori for Maori and the other, a fully bi-cultural set-up for everyone else.

    We have collected more than 16,700 signatures on a petition against He Puapua. We could double the number of signatures if all who have signed encourage another person to sign.

    ‘Aotearoa’ petition highlights lack of press freedom
    Our petition calling on the Prime Minister to delete any reference in official communication to any name for our nation other than New Zealand has drawn a big response and has shown the extent to which the mainstream media blacklists anything other than the approved narrative.

    We sent the media release announcing the petition to 87 media outlets and only three picked it up, with one, Scoop, being the repository of all media releases sent out. The two other outlets to pick it up were the BFD, published by Cameron Slater, and Sunlive in Tauranga, which referred to it in an interview with Simon Bridges who is the city’s MP.

    By contrast, the Maori Party’s petition to change the name of our nation to Aotearoa, as well as the names of every city, town and place that does not have a Maori name received blanket coverage.

    Censorship of news and blacklisting unapproved information is a basic problem for any democracy.

    This is because the active participation of the people, as citizens, in politics and civic life is one of the four cornerstones of democracy.

    The other cornerstones are a system for choosing and replacing the government through free and fair elections, the protection of the human rights of all citizens, and governance based on the rule of law.

    Once “unapproved information” is censored from public discussion, citizens are prevented from active participation in civic life, and one of the four pillars of our democracy crumbles.

    Our petition gathered more than 16,600 signatures in the first week. We could double the number of signatures if all who have signed encourage another person to sign. Please share this email with others and ask your friends to sign.

    Another Mahuta for Health Authority
    Last Thursday, the Government announced appointments to its new race-based health agency, with Cabinet Minister Nanaia Mahuta’s sister Tipa Mahuta taking a top job as co-chair of the Maori Health Authority. Expert group apponted

    The current restructuring of the entire health sector, including the abolition of community control of local health services, delivers the He Puapua goal of a separate Maori health authority – with the power of veto over the entire health system.

    Judges put culture ahead of law and child’s wellbeing?
    A curious case of senior judges putting culture ahead of law and a child’s wellbeing surfaced in a Family Court hearing over a five-year-old girl who Oranga Tamariki whom was trying to remove from her foster family because they were not Maori.

    In a 145-page decision released on September 16, Judge Peter Callinicos dismissed Oranga Tamariki’s application while criticising the agency, its chief executive, and numerous members of its staff, for putting ideology ahead of a child’s best interests. See Maori girl should remain

    Judge Callinicos also delivered a sharp rebuke to the head of Oranga Tamariki, Sir Wira Gardiner, Chief District Court Judge Heemi Taumaunu and the Principal Family Court Judge Jackie Moran, who contacted him during the trial to express concern at the way the judge questioned social workers.

    Judge Callinicos reminded them that it was inappropriate for them to approach a presiding judge to discuss any aspect of a part-heard case, and asked them to refrain from doing so as it was a breach of appropriate judicial independence and judicial conduct. See Judges rebuked

    What is Hobson’s Pledge? Hobson’s Pledge supporters think it is absurd to argue in the 21st century that people who chance to have a Maori ancestor, always with other ancestors too of course, should have superior rights to those who don’t.

  6. A comment written by my brother on another blog.

    “I was lying awake last night as one does, in your dotage. (Does anyone remember cartoonist Joliffe’s Saltbush Bill? Bill and his missus are lying in their chaff-sack bed which is supported by mulga bush poles and she says, “No wonder ya’ve got insomnia – lying awake like that all night!”

    Funny how you remember things like that for five or six decades but can’t remember what you had for breakfast.)

    But I digress. I have been wondering lately what New Zealand was like when great-great grandad Thomas Tunnicliffe arrived in Nelson on Clifford on 11 May 1842. Great-great grandad James Smith arrived later on New Zealand (NOT Aotearoa!) on 4 November the same year and to the same port. It has been exercising my grey cells as to how they fed their stock when first they arrived. The land was covered with bush, manuka and fern and it’s a mystery to me just how they fed their animals and began the task of turning New Zealand over the next 180 years or so into a food production miracle that feeds about 40 million people. The endeavours of the early settlers and their descendants have turned the land into a veritable oasis of meat, grain and greens through hard work, imagination and perseverance.

    This land, famous world-wide as a miracle of food production is now being bought up and planted with pinus radiata for the harvest of… wait for it…. Carbon Credits!

    To change the weather!

    Words fail me!”



  7. The REAL rot in Victoria, Australia:

    “Conflict of interest is a key challenge facing the Victorian public sector. It is worrying that it occurs….. Despite multiple reports and investigations by my office into this issue, it continues to be a significant theme in many complaints to my office. It is worrying that it occurs all too frequently in the Victorian public sector. Also, it can jeopardise the proper expenditure of significant public funds.”

    Read ‘conflict of interest’ as ‘corruption’!

    Also note the last sentence! “Significant public funds’!!!




  8. This is good. From Sue Grey ( used to date ‘er )

    Posted on Jacinda Ardern’s page:
    Jo Wright Of all the vaccines I have taken in my life like Tetanus shots, measles, mumps, polio, meningitis, TB shots, etc…
    Never have I heard so many lies and deceptions over a vaccine that says I have to wear a mask and socially distance even when fully vaccinated, and that I could still contract or spread the virus even after being fully vaccinated.
    Never had to get tested when I was perfectly healthy without any symptoms whatsoever.
    Never been bribed by the establishments to take the vaccine in order to win a holiday and/or cash prizes or earn frequent flyer points.
    I never had to worry about cardiac issues, neurological disorders, blood clots and sadly more! Didn’t even have to worry about death.
    Never was I ever THREATENED by the use of FORCE by the Government, Employers, Police force, and Military for a vaccine as seen overseas.
    I was never judged by my friends or relatives if I didn’t take it. I was never discriminated against for travel or other regular services to a point where I could not buy or sell without it.
    The vaccines I have listed above never told me I was a bad person for not taking them or for even taking them for that matter.
    I have never seen a vaccine that threatened the relationship between my family members and/or close friends to a point of destroying my relationships with them ever.
    Never have I seen it used for political gain.
    Never seen a vaccine needing 24/7 mass media advertising and promotion on every media outlet known to man.
    Then there’s mixing and matching different vaccine brands and being told it’s okay to do it one day and then told the next day to not do it (overseas).
    I have never seen a vaccine threaten someone’s livelihood, as well as wipe out their jobs.
    I have never seen a vaccine that allows a 12-year-old child’s consent to supersede their parent’s consent (that one alone blows me away).
    Finally, after all the vaccines (jab, shots) I listed above, I have never seen a vaccine like this one that discriminates, divides, and judges a society. So much information is censored, deleted, and removed from the internet and mainstream media!
    So many doctors, health care professionals, police and scientists are censored and forbidden to speak out or ask legitimate questions when what is being allowed or not allowed does not make sense! Particularly when it comes from mainstream media. I have never known a vaccine that has made all the Pharmaceutical companies that manufacture it exempt from liability if it kills everyone to a point where no life insurance will cover it!
    This is one powerful vaccine guys! It does all these things above that I have mentioned and yet? It does NOT do the one thing it is supposed to do which is?
    FIGHT OFF THIS PANDEMIC so why on earth would I get it?



  9. IAASB@0706 and 0721

    Re: ‘Professor Baker said it must go further – and not left to people to come forward. Social workers and police should work with health officials…And teams should go door-to-door in areas of concern, checking for symptoms and asking to test people, offering a vaccination at the same time, he said’.

    Noticeably, the ‘good’ Prof. doesn’t mention what ‘consequences’ he would like to inflict-upon those who would refuse his ‘generous offer’, but those of us of a certain age and with long memories will no doubt recall similar events in Europe and SE Asia (Albeit with different intentions).

    The ‘tyranny’ is still there – only the faces (And the ‘weapons / means of enforcement / enslavement’) have changed…



  10. A teacher was reminding her students of their final exam the day after and said.

    ”I won’t be accepting any bullcrap excuses for you not being here tomorrow unless nuclear war breaks out, you have a very serious personal injury or there’s a death in your immediate family if your not here then you fail the whole year”

    The smart ass kid Johnny at the back of the room raises his hand ”What if I come in but I’m suffering from complete and utter sexual exhaustion? how could I do the test then?”

    There were sniggers and laughs from the class until the teacher said ”well in that scenario Johnny, you’ll just have to write with your other hand’’



    • ROL The tweet below the one you linked first is interesting.

      “I sincerely want to see benefits of jabs that outweigh the risks. However, till now data does not support even the ‘benefit’ claim.

      Here is a simple table of 66 countries w >50% jabs. Deaths are 128% & ‘Cases’ are 158% in Y21 compared to Y20.”

      Hey John Key you are looking at the wrong overseas data !! Stop watching TV 1



      • They don’t interfere with DNA ( yet) – the possibility of retroviral processing has been alluded to as a possibility –

        but the vaccines do seem to have an effect on our immune systems specifically T8 Killer cells.

        “Dr. Ryan Cole is an esteemed board-certified pathologist and recently reported that he has found an increase in cancers since the COVID-19 inoculation rollout. “Since January 1, in the laboratory, I’m seeing a 20 times increase of endometrial cancers over what I see on an annual basis,” reported Dr. Cole. And “post-vaccine, what we are seeing is a drop in your killer T-cells, in your CD8 cells.” “And what do CD8 cells do? They keep all other viruses in check.””

        Read this: https://www.theburningplatform.com/2021/09/19/covid-vaccine-dystopia-a-manifesto/

        Let me be te last person to suggest you should not get vaccinated, but at least open your eyes to the truth….



        • ROL, I can add to that.

          In response to a question as to whether the mRNA can alter DNA, Moderna was quoted as saying that the only circumstance under which this was possible was “if the vaccine recipient had an existing immune deficiency disorder, but even then it was unlikely.”

          That news article has since been removed.

          [1] We now know that the vaccine itself compromises the immune system and leads to immune deficiency.

          [2] What ratio is “unlikely”? 1 in 1,000,000, 1 in 10,000, 1 in 100?

          [3] The statement itself is nonsensical – The mRNA will not affect your DNA unless you already have a immune deficiency, but the vaccine gives you an immune deficiency.

          [4] It can be comparable to saying: Repeatedly taking cocaine will not result in drug addiction unless you already have an addictive drug in your system.

          In reference to [4], an idiot could argue that the vaccine is only a couple of jabs (at this point), however since the mRNA is instructing the body to continually create more pathogenic spike proteins indefinitely, it is like taking cocaine several times a day, every day for months on end.

          Any wonder they are in a rush to get to 90% vaccination, and outlaw the un-vaccinated, because in the coming months the flood of vaccine injuries and deaths will no longer be able to be suppressed and the population will either be vaccinated or outlawed, unless the tide of those who resist and speak out continue to do what is right.



      • Any website that has the words “Fact Checker” is automatically an MSM / establishment disinformation site.

        “Fact Checker” is implying that the “Fact Checker” has more intelligence and credibility than either the source it is discrediting, or the source that has the opposing statement.

        Or for that matter, a certain country leader claiming to be honest and transparent when track record speaks otherwise.

        So far on YSB, you have posted no logic, intelligence, or personal understanding. You have just posted links. You will note that most posters put forward rationale over Covid-19 and the vaccines MAY post links. However they always tend to write from their own understanding and logic, and the links are in support of that.

        There is no intelligence required to make discrediting statements, or to post “Fat Checkov” links. All that is doing is trying to tear down one side of an argument without offering your own understanding.

        Furthermore, your earlier statement on this post:
        “However I doubt few if anoyone on YSB would be capable of examining and understanding both sides of the issues behind the covid origins debate.

        Especially those sucked into the nonsense Fauci aspect of the issue.”

        This implies at least three things:
        [1] That you know everyone on this thread, their credentials, experience, understanding, and so on. Totally arrogant since you do not.

        [2] That you, and you alone, on this site know more than the rest of us. In a sense, you have positioned yourself as a ‘Fat Chekov”.
        [a] Totally arrogant.
        [b] Total untrue since as yet you have not submitted any understanding together with the underlying reasoning and chain of logic.

        [3] It is you, that is not capable of examining and understanding both sides of the issues.

        [4] And in any event, there are times in life where understanding of the other side is not possible, reasonable, or worthy of consideration.

        [a] For example, if someone goes to the local school with a gun and opens fire, killing school children, there is no other side of the issue, or point of view from that party that can be considered mitigating circumstances.

        [b] For example:
        [i] If an entity or series of entities releases a ‘vaccine’ to cure a virus (lab created or not), AND
        [ii] At the same time puts pressure on to ban existing cures already in existence that are cheaper, AND
        [iii] The ‘vaccine’ is unproven, AND
        [iv] Where the ‘vaccine’ seller gets the ‘vaccine’ buyer to sign away any recourse and liability should ‘vaccine’ result in deaths or injuries, AND
        [v] The ‘vaccine’ does not work, because it does not stop infections and spreading the virus, AND
        [vi] The ‘vaccine’ distribution is not halted when deaths exceed 50, which is the magic number beyond which deaths will not be tolerated.

        In this instance seeing the other “point of view” or “other side of the issue” falls under the same as [a] i.e. there is no justification for extortion, genocide, banning and suppression of medicines that are already tested and which help, and shutting down media discussion which disagrees with the corrupt narrative.

        Had Hitler not committed suicide, the only point of view that the judiciary / public would possibly want his view on, is: “Mr Hitler, we only have one question we would like your point of view on. Would you prefer death by lethal injection, firing squad, or electric chair?” And I’m sure that many people who lost loved ones, probably had their own thoughts on how Mr Hitler should be executed.

        [5] That everyone who does not trust Fauci is “sucked in” i.e. stupid, but without your logic or understanding of the matter.



    • One thing that puzzles me is twitter etc users saying “terrifying if true”, how come no one ever says the bastion of truth information is terrifying if true? I place more faith in these doctors than stupid Ashley or the DL These experts on the subject have experience on the ground with either patients or in labs, where as Ashley and Michael are going off an algorithm cooked up by Shaun Hendy who has been wrong in 100% of all so far. Listening to Fauci, and others seems to be ridiculous without warning that maybe the science is just what they want it to be..



  11. Is it just me or is anyone else deeply suspicious that in the space of a week we have had both Newstalk ZB and DL ask for comments on vax injuries. Up till now the “safe and effective” narrative has been full frontal.
    Apparently madam was on TV1 this morning spouting the same routine, she clearly doesn’t give a fuck about deaths and injuries so what was this facebook post all about?



  12. Interview by Ryan Bridge of Key and Ardern.

    Key: says open up the hermit kingdom, NZ economy shot, business’ suffering, there is no plan and requires leadership. Strongly disagree with Key saying need for clot shots to ensure safety of vaccinated.

    Cindy: has no plan, 2022 is a new year she will still hold NZ under restrictions, is introducing vax passports. Full of shit and spin.

    Sir John Key hits out at ‘self-congratulatory’ Jacinda Ardern as Michael Baker calls former PM’s criticism ‘simplistic’



  13. Newstalk interview with Key, “Key said lockdowns had proven Kiwis were compliant – but the reality was they won’t get the last 20 per cent without doing something radical like banning people from outdoor concerts.”

    I now realise Key’s appearance of having some intelligence was merely an illusion. As brain dead as the rest of the politicians.

    John, years ago I respected you as our local MP but, as it turns out, your just another dumb fuck fear spreader. Try doing some proper research rather than spouting shite.



    • I heard Key make this comment about ” Kiwis are compliant” on Leighton Smith’s podcast. The way he said it and it appears the same in your quote, is he thinks Kiwis are just dumb plebs. That is, it was said as a put down of Kiwis. Like you BV, I had respect for Key but not now …he has said plenty of stupid things since leaving politics.
      If he is doing this at the moment to try to bolster National, he is shooting them and himself in the foot.



          • I am starting to look at the right wing vaccine pushers as people who have had buyers remorse after getting jabbed themselves. They then find out cindy has no plan to release them from her power and no way out of miq travel . Rather than admit their mistake they want everyone to have the clot shot after which the enormous pressure will make cindy change . I try to tell the ones I meet pushing this narrative is they are giving the commie tart humanity she doesn’t have in her. And she still getting 9k a week and laughing all the way to the bank .



        • Key’s throw away comment about not wanting a clot shot so spoons won’t stick to your arm ground my gears.
          Heard someone say he got vaxed because Covid would make his dick limp. There’s plain stupid on both sides.
          I don’t want a new drug that is rushed to market without being fully tested or understood. I fear unknown side-effects from the vaccine more than I fear treatable symptoms of Covid-19.
          This caution has served me well since my mother declined thalidomide while I was in utero.



        • ED, I got piles of downticks years ago for calling Key a POS smoke and mirrors man with a sexual perversion towards pulling young Females hair, and believe me he has not improved ,He is Helen Clarkes long lost queer twin brother.
          Look at his children, Max was a self loving Tosser that exposed himself to as much media as was humanly possible by one person .
          His daughter figured her body was so startlingly beautiful that the entire planet should celebrate it ,,,,,,, three fucking idiots that might regret how hilarious their self promotion was looking back now in 2021, but probably not…



    • B Venton@1048

      Re: ‘Try doing some proper research rather than spouting shite’.

      As SJK is a globalist first and foremost, I would suggest that the chances of that happening are nil, and that it’s his ‘Task’ to push the ‘safety / all must be vaxxed’ narrative.



    • Remember all the shit Fonterra had to go thru while Key was in charge. Interferred in a company going about its regular business.
      Made the situation worse via his bloody minded pig head ignorance. Cost fonterra and its farmers and shareholders a number of millions and then he fucked of and left them to it. Just as he did with Airnz and just as he will with ANZ bank.
      Fucks most things he touches.

      Including the future of the National Party.
      And lots of dumb and dumber still follow the useless prick. The big I am because I like to liked.
      Yeash well.



  14. It is obvious from comments from various Labour fish heads, over the weekend and today, that there is no agreed plan.
    Stoopid Cindy’s plan appears to be keep Auckland battened down and HOPE the casedemic goes away. Good luck with that Aucks as new cases keep surfacing and some are not linked to existing clusters. When all the clusters join up to be one giant cluster fuck or the the virus dies out for lack of victims, you will be freed.



  15. John Key is representative of the “New” National Party. My fellow commenters seem to associate the Nats with farming, freedom & good financial management but they are thinking of the times of Holyoake or possibly Muldoon.

    The rot set in with Bolger. Since then the Nats have morphed into a full on authoritarian socialist party controlled by the Vatican.



  16. What is the morality of creating second-class citizens through the use of vaccine passports?
    In addition to being denied access to sporting events, what other restrictions could be placed on the “unvaccinated” (who could include anyone who doesn’t meet the government’s definition of “vaccinated”)?
    – Public transport access?
    – International travel?
    – Access to public spaces (who has been infected outdoors?)

    Do you think NZ society would go as far as to seggregate non-vaccinated citizens? Some employers are already talking about it (ref Leo Molloy).

    I was alarmed by photographs of “Juden” graffiti on Jewish shops in Germany in the 1930s. Surely people would have learned from history. What if we start to see “Un-vaccinated” graffiti?

    First they make you carry the card.
    Then they make you wear it on your clothes.
    Then they tattoo it on your arm.
    Then they tattoo it onto your face.
    Then no-one sees you any more.

  18. Mrs Rissole is home from the eye hospital and sleeping comfortably in the sun room. Eye patch comes off tomorrow.

    Should I wake Mrs Rissole and tell her this funny joke?

    **The anthropology student and the pirate**

    An anthropology student was interviewing a retired pirate.

    The student said: You have a wooden leg, a hook in place of a hand, and a patch over what I assume is an empty eye socket! How did all this happen?

    The pirate replied:

    I lost the leg to a canon ball

    I lost the hand in a sword fight

    And I lost the eye because a seagull shit in it

    The student was skeptical: A little seagull shit shouldn’t have cost you an eye!

    The pirate said:

    It was the first day with the hook…



    • “He was satisfied that the order was appropriate and it was not possible to characterise the use of a vaccination – the Pfizer one which has provisional approval for use – as being the equivalent of “medical experimentation”.



        • Sounds grim. What is the truth?
          – We can’t trust the Labour coalition?
          – National is out to lunch?
          – The media is in the government’s pocket?
          – The Judiciary has been bought and paid for?
          – The police and armed forces answer to their paymasters?

          If this is true, then which institutions can we turn to?
          Who could be our allies in our time of need?



          • There are no allies. Every institution is fucked.

            The greatest lie of the 20th and 21st century: MY BODY MY CHOICE

            And the public, in general, love it.

            Go for a walk, go for a drive. Look at the masks! THEY LOVE BEING TREATED LIKE DOGS.

            Nothin’ I can do about that!

            Remember the story about the old fella who had to sit in the car while is wife was buried? This is EXACTLY what he wanted… until he got it.

            REMEMBER: Only 1% voted last year for parties opposed to lockdowns.

            Can’t get an operation? Tough tits! Mrs Rissole can easily afford to go private as I did last year for a prostate re-drill. So can those ordering the lockdowns!

            “You can evade your responsibilities but you cannot evade the consequences of evading your responsibilities.”



            • Do New Zealanders love being treated like dogs?
              How about like chickens?

              (This may not have actually happened, but it sounds like something Stalin would do.)
              Stalin called together his closest comrades-in-arms. “I understand you’re wondering how I govern the people so that every last one of them … thinks of me as a living god. Now I’ll teach you the right attitude toward the people.” And he ordered a chicken brought in. He plucked it live, in front of them all, down to the last feather, down to the red flesh, until only the comb was left on its head. “And now watch,” he said, and let the chicken go. It could have gone off where it wished, but it went nowhere. It was too hot in the sun and too cold in the shade. The poor bird could only press itself against Stalin’s boots. And then he tossed it a crumb of grain, and the bird followed him wherever he went. Otherwise, it would have fallen over from hunger. “That,” he told his pupils, “is how you govern our people.”



              • It is scary, and shows how to govern with a lot of stick, and only a peeling of carrot.
                Not very appealing, when the public grant power to others to run their lives.

                The Modern Monetary Theory, the Magic Money Tree, but none figure there is a day of reckoning.

                Austerity, dog eats dog, as they will not take it, but nor do they understand where the $$ went, like the leaves of that Magic Tree in autumn, finishes it season, and then rots down.

                With that MMT, a weed, then leaves poisoned ground, where other opportunists will try to make the most of their agendas for further power.



            • Well put, BGR.

              None weighed up consequences.

              Never grown up, so believe in Santa, rainbows, unicorn dust, with the religious zeal of the cargo cultists.

              And still do cling to this, despite some of the bumps.



      • ACT, if had done some home work, to include first & early treatment, along with vaccines, then it would have been the Party of Choice

        Like the rhythm method of contraception.
        Superseded a bit by the condom.
        Then modernized by the pill.
        The practice of vasectomy.
        Recalling yesterdays standing of the bucket & saucers.

        All can work well for the different people, places & times, as they see fit.

        Allow & Give us Choice

        Just monitor which works the best, ease of use, convenience, side effects like when the bucket is kicked..

        We might be surprised what we all may learn. 🙂

        Now we find it difficult, if not impossible to trust the monitoring, recording of problems with the vaxx via the Medical autocracy.
        As any other trials of other first & early treatments will also have to meet very high standards too.
        A form of competition, that brings forth vigorous debate, discussion of each & all methods would benefit all.
        Instead there is suppression, censorship, de-platforming which is used to increase power and give further control, following an agenda.

        ACT then would be seen as the Party that dares to share power with the citizens.]
        ACT would be seen as allowing Opportunity & Choice.
        A major point of difference, and also staying true to principles.



    • The flip side of the health and safety legal argument for vocational mandating of vaccines is the increasing body of evidence of vaccine induced injury or disease enhancement. It’s looking increasingly bad in that regard from the papers being published in the literature and media reports from Israel in particular.
      I’ve already spoken to my most excellent solicitor about drafting an indemnity covering such, in the event I am further pressured to receive the mRNA jab before Novavax or Valneva are made available. I will ensure relevant peer reviewed journals are cited.



  19. Good on the BFD for publishing this press release. I’ll bet you a pound to a pennt the rest of the Mainly Stupid Muppets totally ignore it:

    A Significant Distortion of the Truth

    “Recent statements attributed to the Commissioner of Police, Andrew Coster, have repeated previous allegations from police that gangs acquire their firearms from licensed firearms owners. That is a significant distortion of the truth and by implication Coster maligns a quarter of a million carefully and properly vetted New Zealanders.

    The Commissioner very conveniently fails to mention that 12 gang members who had “wrongly” been issued with firearms licenses were the conduit to gangs for a large number of firearms. Wrong because no member of a gang would meet the “fit and proper” criteria required to hold a firearms license. If they had been issued with licenses then those licenses should have been revoked. That would have been logical and easy. Police have a list of gang members and they have a list of licensed firearms owners so a simple comparison of the two lists for match ups would have not only been obvious but easy to do. Clearly, that has not been done. ”

  20. In today’s Free Press from ACT comes this small piece of wisdom:

    …..”Fear only works so far. The Prime Minister has said the ‘killer virus’ could means ‘tens of thousands could die.’ No real-world evidence supports that, and now she’s rolling out the same modeller. The problem is that, if you lead by fear you cannot change course, and if people stop believing you, then you lose all control.”…..

    ACT, like the rest of our deranged politicians, is vaccine focussed despite all logic pointing the other way. They do however, get things right occasionally.



    • He is absolutely right. When I did Military training we were trained to confront rioters. Even in the height of the Apartheid regime there were steps that had to be followed and each step had to be justified according to the law. These cops just climb in at the first opportunity. What these guys need are a few cocktails headed in their direction. Nazi goons.

      I am watching the deterioration in Australia with complete alarm.

      Victoria is the worst because it was the biggest hotbed of corruption and filth and swamp BEFORE covid. Now the government is functioning like the Italian Mafia.

      I am a former government financial auditor in both Australia and New Zealand and also worked in the Dept of Health in Australia. I’ve been involved in audits of Auckland Council, the former Housing Corp, Marsden Pt Oil Refinery as well as commercial work.

      I AM UTTERLY SHOCKED THAT THE AUDITOR-GENERAL OF VICTORIA HAS NO POWER OF INVESTIGATION. This is a result apparently of both legislative changes as well as dodgy court cases. In my day I had under law the same right of access to information in the same time frame AS A CABINET MINISTER.

      Think about that one.

      (The Australians have voted for this for decades.)

    The haulage industry says the UK is short tens of thousands of truckers, due to a perfect storm of factors including the coronavirus pandemic, an aging workforce and an exodus of foreign workers following Britain’s Brexit departure from the European Union last year.

    The problem has been especially visible in Britain, where it has contributed to empty supermarket shelves and shuttered gas pumps.

    After weeks of mounting pressure, the UK’s Conservative government announced that it will issue thousands of emergency visas to foreign truck drivers to help prevent a Christmas without turkey or toys for many British families.



    • An oxymoron, if there is a good journalist, can quietly check out a very large number of these people.
      As face book people often have their real name, and profile, so they could be politely approached and asked if they want this to be taken further, or be able to show more verification of those side effects, at the level of confidentiality of journalistic licence of not divulging their sources.

      Then that media source would be black mailed by the government by removing its subsidy, but on principle, that would be a redeeming point, as if that was also reported. So the story grows even bigger.

      Shucks, just a hope, a dream, but there seems many who want to have this debated, discussed more, and to do so openly.
      Even mentioned the well known over seas Doctors, to debate on NZ tv, with our NZ medical autocracy.
      Where there is a will, then there is a way.

      Freedom Picnic,
      Saturday, 2nd October.
      This has to be outed for more open discussion.

      Choice if the People want to be vaxx or not!
      Choice if the People want first & early treatments!
      Cut the mandatory nonsense of it is the employers who demand “No jab, then No Job”.
      Above all NO to Vaxx Passports!



        • Damn.

          Mrs Rissole threw it out two years ago cause it had a cigar burn and still stunk of Rum and Brandy.

          Brandy is my next-door-plus-one neighbour. She had far, far too much to drink at our street party, and ended up at the Rissoles. When she discovered that the Brigadier had caught a huge white shark in Darwin Harbour, after have been to Everest, she swooned – as liquored tarts do – and was determined to ‘mount’ any of our single male neighbours present and made much of the word play. Disgusting.

          Finally she passed out in the garden shed and the Brigadier carried her to bed. Hence the odour of Brandy on my Santa Clause suit!

          Mrs Rissole telephoned her husband who came and carried Brandy to his car. Fortunately when she chucked it was in the driveway.

          I’ll go to the picnic in a yet-to-be-determined disguise.



    • The sex operation provision is not of this world but religious nuts have enabled the abortion law through their actions.

      Fundy Xtians & rabid Muslim parents are so fucked in the head that they will likely kill a daughter who disgraces them by falling pregnant out of wedlock even if it’s the result of rape or incest. This was the motivation behind similar legislation in NZ.

      I don’t agree with abortion as a form of birth control but not everything is black & white.



  22. While focus remains firmly fixed on Covid-19, a second health crisis is quietly emerging in Britain. Since the beginning of July, there have been thousands of excess deaths that were not caused by coronavirus.

    According to health experts, this is highly unusual for the summer. Although excess deaths are expected during the winter months, when cold weather and seasonal infections combine to place pressure on the NHS, summer generally sees a lull.

    This year is a worrying outlier.

    According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), since July 2 there have been 9,619 excess deaths in England and Wales, of which 48 per cent (4,635) were not caused by Covid-19.

    So if all these extra people are not dying from coronavirus, what is killing them?




    • Cross-match those causes of death with the people who were (double-tap) vaccinated, and see if there is a correlation.

      Time to dust off that multivariant analysis and put it to work. (You can bet that there will be no funding available for this kind of research. And anyone who attempts might have trouble holding on to their tenure or research funding…. You know what I’m saying.)

      If Netflix wants to make another cheesy series, they can make one about a wealthy billionaire philanthopist who funds the kind of truth-seeking research no-one will put money towards. The title for the series could be The Truth-Finders or Unsettled Scientists.



    • This high up crazy US official has it figured, that she being double vaxxed has even placed a higher risk on her unvaxxed kids, so doubles down that she has to be even more careful of being near the unvaxxed.

      …. ….. my reaction to crazy Leana Wen
      23 secs

      Setting up the unvaxxed to be blamed for everything.
      The vaccine works, or it is not a vaccine, while saying the vaccinated can carry so much more virus, so she endangers her own kids.

      …. an American physician, an op-ed columnist with The Washington Post and a CNN medical analyst.
      She is a practicing physician, a former Health Commissioner for the City of Baltimore, ….


      The education system seems to be able to twist even what one would think was an intelligent brain, and now a “woke influencer”.



    • A lot of words are having their meanings changed. For example, “vaccinated” and “vaccine” don’t mean what you thought they meant any more.
      It’s had keeping abreast of the changing English language!



        • O-sen, please refer to commandment No.3 of the Georgia Guidestones, rules for the new world.

  23. Colmar Brunton poll:

    David Seymour overtakes Judith Collins in preferred PM rankings – 1News Colmar Brunton Poll

    Preferred PM:
    Jacinda Ardern: 44% (down 4%-points)
    David Seymour: 11% (up 5%)
    Judith Collins: 5% (down 4%)
    Christopher Luxon: 3%
    Simon Bridges: 2%

    Both the major parties took a 3% drop in support – Labour down to 43% and National to 26%. It is Labour’s worst result since before Covid hit in early 2020.



  24. David seymour on magic talk this arvo… i notice a change in hos language around vaccines, reading the room perhaps?
    Whilst hes still being a muppet about it regarding international travel and ppl entering nz i noticed him shy away big time about ways to force kiwis to get vax rate to 90%, some hope but likely just a brain fart and he’ll be crowing same as john “we should take away those peoples liberties” key.

    Fuck them all, a representative democracy only works when theres representatives for all the people. Currently theres no one that will represent 10-20% of the population.

    Vax passports and restrictions on the unvaxxed is still ruling with fear.



    • Mr. Seymour needs to differentiate ACT from the coalition and from National by taking the lead in offering a path to freedom and prosperity for New Zealand workers.
      New Zealand civil servants and other taxpayer-funded employees, as well as social welfare beneficiaries might not be so keen on ACT, but I am sure that history will prove David right.

      ACT can become the New Zealand Worker’s, Businessmen’s, and other productive Peoples’ Party.
      “The party for the doers and makers; not the takers!”
