  2. And an extension of Auckland’s Level 3 until after Christmas, all in the name of ‘Really caring’ for ‘Her’ people…

    The locals have been very ‘tolerant’ until now, but are starting to become restive, so DL may find she has a very negative reaction should she decide to extend it…

      Sorry Komata but you’re dreaming. The vast majority of New Zealanders have shown themselves to be utterly spineless. Don’t look for any real reaction from these pathetic facenappy wearing drones coz it won’t happen. Yes there is a core of people who are resisting – readers of this and a few other blogs, VFF members and some other groups, but we are a tiny minority, sadly. New Zealand doesn’t even have a political opposition FFS, let alone any kind of ‘restive’ undercurrent amongst the general slave population.

        Thank you. I suspect we are talking about similar things and while agreeing that the ‘majority’ of both NZ-ers in general and Jaffa’s in particular are ‘sheeple’ and content to remain ‘docile’, and ‘obedient’, I stand by my statement (Based-upon personal contact and feedback) that there are those who are indeed ‘becoming restive’ and who will act like the ripples on a pond. It may take time to ‘spread the word, but it will eventually happen.

        The complicity of HM’s Loyal Opposition only serves to compound the problem.

        Thank you.

  5. Who is Fumio Kishida, Japan’s next prime minister?

    TOKYO — In picking Fumio Kishida, Japan’s political establishment turned to a safe pair of hands to lead the ruling Liberal Democratic Party into a general election this autumn.

    In a party leadership election on Wednesday, Kishida comfortably defeated his main rival Taro Kono, Japan’s outspoken vaccine minister who bills himself as reformist. He also topped Sanae Takaichi, a hard-line conservative backed by former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and Seiko Noda, a center-left lawmaker who is progressive on social policies.

    DALIAN, China — A 2,200 meter rail bridge across the Amur River, between China and Russia, was completed in August this year, part of a push to deepen economic ties between the two countries facing U.S. sanctions.

    The new bridge is a boon for companies that move goods across the China-Russia border.

  7. I was watching something about the Oranga Tamariki review on T.V last night. Basically it came down to the standard socialist answer, throw more money at the problem via you’re friends and party bludgers. . I’ve got a better idea, pay the benefit in vouchers that can’t be used to buy alcohol. The problem would be halved in no time, and if they don’t like it we just tell them the benefit is not compulsory so they don’t have to take it. Imagine how much money this would save the country.

  8. Now this is more like it.
    Still not aggressive enough.

    It’s time to move on.
    The Government should state that it will repeal the COVID-19 Public Health Response Act. It should surrender its powers to issue restrictions. ACT would replace it with bespoke legislation to implement any new requirements used to reduce transmission rates, hospitalisation, and death from COVID-19.

    • Agreed Viking.

      Now we need a Commission of Inquiry and must cover the government’s response in not following the Health Department pandemic plans as laid out & accepted in its revision of 2017.
      So why were they not followed? and nor was lock-downs a part of this.

      Why are not first, early treatments made available?
      So many issues like ignoring Professor Borody’s trials in first treatment in Australia last year.

      What is this about only government information is true, and then appearing to suppress, censor, in colluding with the media & social media, that demand only a medical autocracy to rule, so nothing will change.
      Kept hidden by Ardern’s bungling henchmen & media

      Would there be any one impartial to run that Commission to get past the “litany of lies” and expose the shenanigans & charlatans.

  9. Coronavirus: NZ has 45 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the community

    BUT

    All of the new cases are in Auckland and a total of 33 are household or close contacts of existing cases and weren’t infectious in the community.

    So just bloody minded fear mongering.

    • I think the government really, really wants to put Auckland on Level 2.5 from next Wednesday so that they don’t have to offer another round of wage subsidies.
      A way will be found to do this, but changing the rules to something new. What could that be?
      – Level 2 for Auckland, but you can’t cross the Bombay Hills or go north
      – Level 2 with masks mandatory in public
      – Level 2 but with compulsory “Vaccine Papers”
      – Level 2 but with the same restrictions on outdoor activities as in Level 3

      It may be Level 2 that is actually Level 3.1

  10. It’s ‘Unfair And Absurd’ That Companies Would Raise Costs For Consumers Due To Higher Taxes

    George Orwell asked you to imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.
    So we don’t need to ask you to trust us when we say we have read some deeply stupid stuff.

    But nothing so stupid as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki trying to explain exactly how economics doesn’t work to the White House Fluff Corps.

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed during Monday’s press briefing that it would be “unfair and absurd” for companies to raise costs on consumers in response to the Biden administration raising the corporate tax rate.

    If Democrats get their way, corporate taxes are about to go up by about 25%. And because it would be “unfair and absurd” for anyone to raise prices on consumers in response to increased costs…

    …wait, wut?

    Psaki actually represents perfectly her brothers and sisters on the Left in their belief that businesses are all run by Scrooge McDuck and have secret safes hiding all the money they took away from poor people. With just the right taxes, the money will come out and the poor people will be rich again.

  11. New Zealand’s vaccination rate has fallen off a cliff.

    Just 12,641 people got a first dose on Monday, the lowest weekday total since mid-July, when most people under the age of 65 were not yet eligible for a shot.

    This isn’t a blip: the average daily rate has dropped to about 20,000 a day in the last week, less than half the lockdown-fuelled rate of 55,000 managed earlier this month.

    And it looks to be getting worse, too. The number of people booked in for a vaccine has barely moved in the last week, growing by just 50,000.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/300418083/covid19-nz-vaccinations-are-hitting-a-wall-and-the-government-needed-a-plan-for-this-yesterday?cid=300418083.facebook.post&fbclid=IwAR0lNZhdEW0TG3DwVowGqORHUP9de3w-7DzWMqfL-4sPTuH6s4Y30Nce2Ig

    Seems to show to me that people are finally getting wary of the consumer product and voting with their feet.
    Shows that even if you bribe people not everyone will be bribed.

    Clearly shows that people wnat informed consent and a choice.

    That’s what consumers do.

    Nothing as good as a free market.

    Three wāhine Māori have become the first to receive a joint doctorate in mahi raranga or traditional weaving.

    he work the kairaranga have done demonstrates clearly how raranga is a very valid discipline of academic study.

    Republican Lawmakers Question Attacks on Ivermectin as COVID-19 Treatment
    By Emel Akan
    September 28, 2021 Updated: September 29, 2021
    biggersmaller Print

    WASHINGTON–A group of Republican lawmakers threw their support behind doctors who advocate for the right to use ivermectin, an inexpensive antiparasitic drug, for treating COVID-19.

    Ivermectin is the latest drug caught in controversy after demand surged dramatically in August. Physician and pharmacist groups, including the American Medical Association “strongly oppose” the prescribing of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 patients. Federal health agencies also issued warnings recently to prevent the use of the drug, stating that “adverse effects associated with ivermectin misuse and overdose are increasing.”

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/republican-lawmakers-question-attacks-on-ivermectin-as-covid-19-cure_4021773.html?utm_source=morningbriefnoe&utm_medium=email2&utm_campaign=mb-2021-09-29&mktids=cfd9ba0d5a1cea6c8d4be663921c6b70&est=KttogOAgz%2Fav7FNmXZxlJk%2Ft6nmCW8bPZ5AJHlrVHw9lXeGKIrDvTR4y0bbLv%2Fw%3D
    Critical care physician Pierre Kory, however, describes correctly administered ivermectin as “a gift” in the fight against COVID-19.

    “I know ivermectin works. I’ve been using it to treat patients for 10 months now,” Kory told The Epoch Times.

    During the pandemic, Kory led intensive care units in several hotspots, including New York City. He is one of the founding members of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, which “strongly recommends” the use of ivermectin in both the prevention and treatment of the virus.

    Kory briefed more than 20 members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus on Sept. 27 about the efficacy of the drug.

    • BV. I think the MSM twisted what JC was really saying about the supermarkets, although what JC said made it easy for them. Apparently she said it was up to each business to make their own decision about not letting unvaccinated people in. A hack asked her about supermarkets as they were classed as essential services and JC it is up to each supermarket ….that is it is a business decision not the Government. She could have easily added “but essential services should be open to everyone” just make it simpler for the hack but she didn’t.

  23. This might entertain although I doubt that it will have ANY effect, (And yes, it has been sent, and I DO realise that the comment about ‘Honesty’ is an oxymoron),

    30 September 2021

    Dear Messers Collins and Bishop

    Further to your email of 29 September 2021 (for which I thank you), and your subsequent video-based announcement concerning the New Zealand National Party’s (NZNP) response to the Covid-19 virus, I wish to advise that, on analysis, the supposedly ‘ new’ policies which the NZNP are promoting are, in essence, absolutely NO different in intent and function from that which the New Zealand Labour Party and it’s associates are currently promoting, and that, by conforming-to, (nay actually AGREEING  with said policies), the NZNP has once-again shown that it is in fact little different to the current coalition which is ruling (and ruining) New Zealand.

    This is unsurprising as the NZNP has been actively moving towards ‘Socialism’  since the 2003 revision of the party’s ‘Principles’ to the extent that it is no longer proudly ‘Blue’ by way of policy-differentiation from the aforesaid NZ Labour Party, but has become ‘Purple’ (That colour being defined as being ‘A mix of both ‘Blue’ (Conservative values) and ‘Red’ (Socialism / Marxism), to the extent that for many thinking, Conservatively-inclined  New Zealanders it is perceived as being  (and indeed named as such) either ‘Labourlite’ or ‘Labour in Drag’; such has been the decline of a once great party. 

    No doubt Sid Holland, Rob Muldoon and Keith Holyoake would have views on the matter.

    On the basis of the above, and until the NZNP decides exactly WHAT it stands for (or indeed AMALGAMATES with the NZLP; the similarities; as previously-noted already there, so it should be easy), I would request that you, as the ‘faces’ of the NZNP and (supposedly) Conservatism in New Zealand, do FOUR things. These are:

    1. Reread the NZNP ‘Founding Policies’ document and on the basis of the values there-in (Specifically in respect to Communism) decide exactly WHAT the party stands for, 

    2. Develop and promote Policies that are DIFFERENT from those of the NZ Labour Party, and, having done so, promote and market these so that the average Kiwi can SEE that there is a difference!

    3. Follow through on all and any ‘Commitments to change’ that are made, AND BE SEEN TO BE HONEST!!.

    4, Remove my name from your Mailing List, as despite having been an ardent supporter of the NZNP for the past 50 years, the party’s current similarity to the NZ Labour Party (And indeed it’s enthusiasm for said party’s socialist policies) is now so close (As per my previous comments) that  I can no longer support it in it’s present form.

    Please note however that SHOULD the NZNP ever become sufficiently-different from the NZ Labour Party to warrant it, I will, of course, once-again support it with both my vote and contributions.

    Trusting that you will take-heed of my comments (Although simultaneously doubting that you will, such has been the NZNP’s fall in interest in any public response).

    Kindest regards

    Now what would be really interesting is to break the 256 down into jabbed and non-jabbed.

    Let me see, oh, those stats aren’t listed. I wonder why?????

  28. Just in case those who want to play the Swedish card,

    A year and a half after Sweden decided not to lock down, its COVID-19 death rate is up to 10 times higher than its neighbors

    Sweden decided not to implement a full-scale lockdown during the pandemic.
    It now has up to 10 times as many COVID-19 deaths per capita as its Nordic neighbors.
    Sweden also didn’t fare much better economically, suggesting its gamble didn’t pay off.

    But then again it might be argued that combating Covid has a strong element evolutionary biology attached to it favouring the fittest amonst us?

    • Your last sentence may or may not be true. However, it is almost a truism that the fitter and healthier one is, the less likely one is to die from any disease. When in South Africa many years ago I and two other spelunking novices were exposed to Histoplasma capsulatum var. duboisii . Three weeks after the exposure the two others landed up in hospital with severe lung infections. I was not affected at all. This very rare disease ( rare because you have to be in an infected cave for at least an hour, and most tourist caves are disease free) affects the lungs and at that time there was no prevention and cure was essentially “treat the symptoms, but don’t apply antibiotics”. Fitter people with healthy lungs were often far less affected than those that were not. I would argue that covi is exactly the same….

  29. I have something to share (which I’ve deliberated about sharing). I didn’t want to add fuel to any fires, and this is likely to be pure coincidence. We will never know.
    I monitor my blood pressure regularly. It’s only at the top end of prehypertension/bottom end of stage 1, so nothing bad. But I keep an eye on it as I need to pass certain medical exams. I’m reasonably fit for a desk jockey, and my heart beat is strong and regular and sits in the low to medium 50’s.
    About a week after my second jab my blood pressure machine detected an irregular heart beat. This has never happened before. My pulse was as strong as ever, but missing every 4th beat. Consistently, with no exceptions. I monitored it for several minutes until I get tired of it and gave up. In that time it continued to miss every 4th beat without fail.
    The next day, it was back to normal, and has been since. I suspect I just had a short circuit somewhere in the wiring, but the fact it happened just after my jabs did cross my mind.

    • Don’t worry about it Saggy. It’s just the RNA taking over your body (as intended).

      Now be a good Saggy and go put your mask on.

      Mrs Rissole says “fuckwit” and is happy to pay into the Swear Jar for a good cause.

    • Appreciate that info Saggy.

      Another key gadget is the thermometer which also will show a rise if the body has any back ground inflammation.
      I must say the battery ones, where the battery looks like it will even see me out.

      I used the thermometer post operation, as the Doctors said to come back if any problem.
      Unwittingly having a crises, not recognizing at first for about 2 days that I had a major problem, so ended up carted off by ambulance.

      I have thought more recently to get one of the blood pressure gadgets.
      I presume your is the new fangled push button hopefully user friendly ones.

      Another one to get is the oxygen deficit clamp on the finger job.

      All of the above is of good value if checked regularly, and that value is enhanced when put into an easy chart, of dates & time of.
      That helps to figure, just what is your normal, and just what has changed.

      Also to note the pills you take.
      Any medicines like the ambulance can give you, can really mask temperature, and your pain, when late at night the ED doctor wants to discharge you.

      It is of much more use to a Doctor if something has to be acted on, and not so easy for Emergency Departments, to just send you home again, with some pills, with a come & see us tomorrow.

      It is brave thing in getting to be old. 🙂

      Update:- Will be interesting to get your Dr,s to do the follow up what rol suggests too.

    • Could be Atrial Fibrillation, see your doctor without delay. He may well advise going on blood thinning medication such as Pradaxa due to the increased risk of stroke. This would seem to be especially important since you have had the clot shot.

  30. Excellent News “The daily number of people getting their first COVID vaccine dose has tumbled.

    Four weeks ago an average of 55,000 New Zealanders were getting their first shot each day.

    Since then numbers have fallen off sharply; so far this week, just 13,000 first doses were given each day, just a quarter of the peak demand.

    Nearly one million eligible people still have not had a dose.”

    Traffic has come to a grinding halt on a central Auckland motorway after citybound lanes were closed following a police issue.

    Emergency services were called to the scene on the North Western Motorway near Kingsland just before midday.

    The New Zealand Transport Agency – Waka Kotahi (NZTA) says all lanes eastbound on State Highway 16 are now closed after the St Lukes Rd off-ramp.

  33. It was only a matter of time before something like this happened in Victoria.,

    The copper’s behaviour at 1:18 (After the main body of the protestors have passed) is very enlightening and revealing and says more about them than they may have realised.

  34. If the gangs have people who are coronavirus “positive” perhaps they will use these people as biological weapons.
    Let’s say that a gang wants to disable a police station or police district, all they have to do is to send a young, infected prospect to cough over everyone at the station. Under the regulations, all the exposed police will have to self-isolate. The police presence is thereby neutralized.
    (We saw this recently where some women ended up making 13 police go into isolation.)

    The gangs might make a deal with the govenment. Would the government be interested in having a COVID outbreak at a known location at a known time? There could be some money or favours in the arrangement.

    Or maybe blackmail. “You pay us or we will force your staff into isolation, give you a ton of bad publicity and force you to lock down and clean up. That has to be worth a couple of hundren grand to you…”
