  1. I hope no one hands their guns in.
    Much as I don’t like automatic guns in private hands.
    Its a way to show the “government” that they cannot just rush law in.
    Especially due to an Australian attacking a mosque.

  2. I am the wrong person to ask about electric cars.
    I am not in a position to buy any new car.
    But If I were, I would not buy one until the technology was in its second or third phases.
    And that it was proven that our power supply could handle the demand.

    • Jaguar bought their new i-Pace and a couple of other toys over for our community open day. It was a fantastic piece of machinery and despite a nearly $180k starting price were already all sold. I have my eye on the Macan replacement when they bring out their electric model (2021 or 2022 I believe), but it makes sense for a low travel, mostly urban household. I can’t see it working for rural.

      • Keep both m8 i was going to sell my XR6 when i bought the XR8 but they looked so cute together i couldn’t do it, but then i can get to work from the other side of town in 10 mins on a good day not constantly sitting in traffic watching the fuel gauge drain

        • I had an XR8 ute and an XR6 ute at the same time. I wouldn’t say the XR8 was any more thirsty than the XR6. Depends on how you drove them, but over a 2 year period and and checking the vehicle fuel costs, there was no difference.

    • Have a chat to your local garage, chances are that they will have been on a “servicing an EV” course

      I asked my local mob about it and they had me in stitches for 20 minutes, the basic gist of it was, EVs are more or less unservicable, they have a realistic life of maybe 100k before you have to think about a battery change (and battery changes will cost near as much as a good second hand petrol car). The safety concerns were a lot of fun too, battery fires on a battery that size (remember lithium burning in school chemistry lessons!) are spectacular and basically impossible to put out.

      Their tales of the range deterioration of EVs were also pretty eye-watering. A second hand Nissan Leaf that could just about do a 20k round trip every day before needing an overnight charge-up.

      The real catastrophe is when the subsidised virtue-signallers start selling off their EVs to buy back in to petrol cars, TradeMe is going to be flooded with affordable EVs only a few years old but with heavily deteriorated batteries, the roads will turn into perma-traffic jams with all the battery flat EVs blocking the roads.

      The CoL are treating the NZ public like idiots, they know all this, they just don’t like it because it doesn’t fit with their “feelz”.

      • Has anyone explained how we are supposed to get rid of all the toxic dead batteries? Shipping them to China for recycling or to some third world sh1thole for burying in a landfill is probably not an option. Electric cars are a totally insane idea all round, no wonder the greenies are so keen on them.

      • Tesla provides a replacement warranty with the battery – 8 years or when a range is exceeded. The 65kw one has a 200,000km range while the warranty applies, the higher capacity batteries have unlimited kms. They also recycle 90% of any returned batteries. They’ve made good progress.

        Their cars are still manufactured like cheap Korean imports from the 80s though. Which is probably about how the coalition should be described trying to force markets to adopt something that isn’t there yet.

        The big manufacturers are going there though. Porsche, Bentley, Jaguar, etc. It’ll be interesting to see what they come up with.

  3. After the shambles Phil Twyford made in his handling of kiwibuild and the housing crisis he has cheek telling Jacinda’s advisory panel that it bad business to implement their roading plan.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/politics/news/article.cfm?c_id=280&objectid=12248433
    And the Coalition especially Winston Peter’s complain about business confidence being at a all time low with comments that they don’t get enough credit for what they are doing as a Government.

    • As I have said before, sadly i hope that business confidence keeps dropping. (it may lose them the election)
      Ardern and Roberston six months ago were worried about it falling.
      I wonder if they still are.
      They have their argenda to tax us all more and give money away to losers, and they wont change.
      If and when unemployment starts to rise they wont care, as that’s more voters for them.

      • I’d say something like “do everything in your power to pay the least amount of tax possible and deny them their revenue stream“, but you’re likely already doing that and I wouldn’t put it past Ardern to legislate around that anyway by removing the means to recover costs. She’s already tried once with the work from home clauses on her failed capital gains tax.

  4. So we have a new Race Relations Concilliator.
    It took a year to appoint one.
    So that proves we don’ need one.
    I think he is a nice guy.
    But then he said on his interview we have to stand together with our muslims,.
    No we don’t and muslims are not a race! its a religion.

  5. Unanswered questions on RBNZ Capital Proposals.
    First do the benefits of the proposals exceed the costs.
    Second has the Reserve Bank been consulting with a open mind.
    Third is whether the reserve Bank understands its statutory objectives.
    https://www.newsroom.co.nz/2019/07/10/673783/unanswered-questions-on-the-rbnzs-capital-proposalshis this is Winston and Grant’s baby and with the Reserve Bank Governor they have yet to do a cost analysis to show that its viable.

  6. Suicide rate among Māori men rises to highest in decade
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/394108/suicide-rate-among-maori-men-rises-to-highest-in-decade
    “The suicide rate among Māori men rose to almost 32 per 100,000 in 2016 – more than double the non-Māori male rate.
    To put it down to one thing, it would definitely be connection and connection to who they are and to people and to places, and it comes down to whakapapa as well not knowing who they are she said”.

    Why did I know she were going to say the cause was something along those lines.
    In reality I would say the most likely causes are drug abuse,alcohol abuse,broken relationships including high rates of single parent families,unemployment,welfare dependency and the list in a similar vain goes on.

    • Maori need to change their outlook as their life choices are killing their whanau. If you continue to do what you have always done, you will continue to get the same result. What more incentive do a people need than the continued unnecessary deaths of their own. Something is rotten in the Maori collective in denying their need to change what is clearly not working for a productive and happy existence for all their people.

    • …..”and it comes down to whakapapa as well not knowing who they are she said”…..

      She has a point. Whakapapa is important to Maori. It says who they are unlike education or material success does in European culture.

      But since there’s increasingly good odds that Maori males will have been fathered by unknowns who pegged the drunken, P addicted slags who bred them for the income from the DPB they have little chance of connecting with their whakapapa.

      • Why is it that only Maori need to connect to the Whakapapa to succeed and know who they are?
        We all get dealt what we have.
        So its best to get on, today’s world is full of opportunities, just get educated, a a trade, a good job, a house, and then look for a good wife or husband.

        • Culture, like religion, seldom makes much sense to those out of the clique.

          Yet this is one where blaming Pakeha & sticking their hands out for koha isn’t going to make a blind bit of difference. Unless Maori as a whole or Iwi as groups take ownership of the problem (sorry – Thursday AM joke) nothing will happen.

    • But S&S did all the “male” identify as male or is that an assumption from the autopsy process? After taking note of a recent study that revealed ” Queer people are twice as likely to commit suicide than straight people.” A rare thing these days to see such a headline but perhaps it does not fit the current narrative to mention what they might “identified” themselves as. Many will also be puzzled that in this digitized age the this data is from 2016?

  7. AOC is being sued for blocking people on Twitter.

    It reminds me of the platform / publication discussion Colinsky had yesterday.

    Can you force a public official to unblock people? Where does her right to control her Twitter account start and stop? To me, a public account for government / official use should not be blocked, but a private use can do what they will with their own accounts.

    It will be interesting to see what comes out of it.

    US psychologist Abraham Maslow came up with a hierarchy of needs in 1943. He claimed that physiological needs must be met before social and self-actualisation needs

  9. Drove to Tauranga and back yesterday. Awful lot of ute and SUV drivers out on the roads. None of them will be supportive of Ms JAG’s decree that they “contribute” a larger $ amount for the right to drive the vehicles they need to do the work they do.
    Q, will the heavy vehicles tax include all those who purchase work van, camper vans, small trucks, large trucks, tractors, diggers, bulldozers, etc? So many questions for the ‘mad green’.

    • Yes not that I like all those big utes and suvs (they make it so hard to reverse out of angle parking) I do think this may be just another Showerhead moment for the COL.
      The only thing is that it won’t hit people in their pockets fot another few years!

        • Our car does that. It is only while you have your foot on the brake for more than a few seconds while waiting at the lights or in a line of stopped traffic, and then restarts as soon as you release the brake. Bit freaky the first time I was driving and it happened.

    Swap Labour for Conservative in this statement and we know exactly how they feel.

    “If you have to choose between what is in the interests of the country and the future or the short-term interests of the Conservative Party, I would unhesitatingly choose the interests of the country as a whole,” he said.

  12. Fucking Cunts. Time to rise up against these prize arseholes and reclaim our freedoms.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/114139882/levelling-boys-bike-park-sad-testament-to-public-administration#comments

    In the same vein, don’t hand in the guns, only fill in the bare minimum on any form demanding information including the census, time to obstruct, obfuscate and generally be a pain in the arse whenever dealing with cunts from the councils or the Government. We need our Yellow Vest movement sooner than later.

    So sick and tired of pen-pushing, clipboard wielding fuck wits.

    • Blimey. And he wasn’t even a member of the easily offended religious group that so often threatens violence when anyone or anything upsets them. Britain is a lost cause I’m afraid. Oh, and by the way, it is Tommy Robinson’s sentencing hearing today when we will all get to find out just how deep the corruption in the British judicial system really is.

  14. Owner consumed by his own dogs
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=12248639

    ” The bone pieces found on the man’s overgrown trailer-and-shed property were suspicious. But the truth didn’t hit the sheriff’s deputies until they inspected some dog feces and found what looked like human hair and bits of clothes.

    Freddie Mack had been eaten by his only companions at his rural home near Venus, Texas: his 18 dogs.”

    What a horrible ending, but apparently not unusual to be eaten by your pets.

  15. That “artwork” is sited at the foot of the Kaiti Hill in Gisborne Kea.

    Kaiti Hill is the kainga of the Gisborne Chapter of the Mongrel Mob & our very own Maggy Wassilieff. Walk with respect bro! 🙂
