        • I checked the odds on an international betting site before I went to bed. NZ were paying $5.20!
          This morning I thought the last time a $5.20 shot got up in a two horse race was Brexit in June 2016. Great result.

  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.

        • 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.

        Your story illustrates poor driving though – going through a blind corner so fast that you’re unable to stop in time (not driving to the conditions), stopping close to a blind corner (poor situational awareness).

        No amount of car will save people from their own mistakes.

    • 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.

        Get into the spirit.
        undisturbed exclusive use and possession of their taonga so what was considered valuable, radio waves, etc. plus

        When the Treaty was signed, pu and tupara (muskets and double barreled shotguns) were among the most valuable of all taonga

        under Article 2 (if it really does go beyond the real property interests listed as the New Zealand courts say). Article 2 assured the chiefs and all the ordinary people of New Zealand that they would have undisturbed exclusive use and possession of their taonga. …..

        The Arms Act 1860 exempted Maori. ….
        …… Under the so-called right of development in Treaty jurisprudence, that would now extend to whatever is the modern equivalents (in relative effectiveness to other weapons?)

      • A 20mm Ball Bearing fired from a Sporting Catapult or a Crossbow Bolt will do as much damage to a Politicians Head as an AR15 and a Large Knife more. A Flame thrower is even more effective if larger numbers of victims are required, and a Truck Bomb driven into a Shopping Mall on a busy day would make the Mosque shooting seem very tame. Not suggesting these just pointing out if Political R Soles think banning Guns makes for personal safety then be aware that people of very inventive when they want to achieve a specific result and i have other ideas that would make all of them a minor issue.

        • Fertilizer and nails. No one is going to question the sale of fertilizer in New Zealand. Probably doesn’t kill as many, but is very effective at maiming. and often that is a more desirable outcome for these fuckers as the pain lingers for a lifetime. A gun is probably the least effective weapon of terror if you think about it. It’s hard to conceal when you want to use it, you can only kill one at a time, you have limited ammunition and they often jam. Now discretely placed fertilizer bombs in metal dustbins around a shipping mall…. ( In Johannesburg when Mandela’s terrorists were bombing the shit out of the civilian population they actually removed all the dustbins from the streets for this very reason.) This government and the police don’t have a clue when it comes to counter terrorism.

        When I was providing condoms in my Liquor Shop, anecdotally I was told that they are also made freely available in gay bars/clubs, maybe they should be freely available everywhere.

        Maybe there is condom poverty?

  4. So we have a new Race Relations Concilliator.
    It took a year to appoint one.
    So that proves we don’ need one.

  9. 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.

          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?

  10. 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.
