  1. Isn’t it funny how Winston Peter’s with Labour and the Greens toured the Country when National were in power preaching we had s Manufacturing crisis through Nationals running of the economy.Now we have a Manufacturing crisis we have pitiful Politician saying the Labour led Government in which his Party NZ First is part of would ” carry on doing our job and ignore the doomsday merchant’s. ”

    • Peters is a career politician. Lies to get into power. Lies to stay in power. Legislates to keep that power, no matter the harm.

      They are all scum.

          • I remember years ago attending a dear friends funeral. At the after match function during a few drinks the subject of
            Peters came up (this was during the Owen Glenn NO sign) and one of the group who was a National MP (since retired) disclosed that he and several others once shared a flat in Wellington with him.

            Maybe because the alcohol was flowing but this person obviously did not like Peters and described him as suffering from a small man complex who has to tell lies to bolster his ego and appear important.

            Nothing has changed.

  2. I’m sure Trump will be sad this …. isn’t coming to the White House

    As usual – hard left, fascist feminist activist behaves with dignity and class, how could you not respect this creature? If you find your political views align with this potty-mouthed purple-haired, human dog turd, there is nothing anyone can do to help you. Congratulations, you have completed your de-evolution into a sub-human life form. #skankyho

    Proof that you being able to kick a ball doesn’t necessarily mean you are a worthwhile human being.

  3. Australia’s fish’n’chip girl is so much better than NZ’s one

    It’s hard to disagree with what Pauline Hansen says about feral left-wing protesters who take their activism too far (trespass, damage, assault, etc). She says the police have been told to back off on protesters (and of course only the indigent of the left wing usually protest), she talks about the insanity of them being fined $1 in the event of being taken to courts.

    She says something very sensible, if they break the law give them proper fines or imprison them, treat them the same way you would anyone else who breaks the law? She says people are fed up with protesters thinking they can do whatever they want (well I know I’m fed up with Antifa, Peace Action Aotearoa, anything Sue Bradford is in, 1080 protesters, egg throwers, milk shake assaulters, dildo throwers, shit throwers, stand in your face and spit and snarl at you activists etc)

    For ordinary, decent people – what Pauline says would all seem perfectly reasonable and hard to argue with. However, looking at the comments (from left-wingers who consider themselves tolerant and champions of diversity – of course) one gets an amazing insight into how thoroughly morally and mentally corrupt is the average socialist. Variously, Hansen is accused of:
    – Hating free speech (assaulting someone is “free speech”???? to a socialist??)
    – Being a fascist (for wanting the laws of the land to be applied equally, regardless of political persuasion?)
    – Needing an interpreter (presumably because she has a very working class Aussie accent – that’s fucking left wing tolerance for you)
    – Being the same (because she wore a burka to Parliament once – how the fucking hell do you equate that with disturbing the peace, criminal trespass and damage or assaulting someone)

    This is why I say you cannot reason with the left, as a species they are collectively insane. They deal in two modes only – either you are one of them and you are alright, or you are not one of them and you are just so much worthless faeces. They have to be mocked, they have to be nit-picked the second they don’t follow their own rules, they have to be hounded and de-platformed and silenced. It’s the only way that a degree of reasonableness is going to return to political debate and civil society – the cost of going low has to be so severe that the loony lefties dare not go there.

    • DP could you give Williamson another spray about how he looks after people like Martin Guptill that shouldn’t be in the team and we might get another good result tonight against the poms. Your expert opinion worked a treat last time against India.

      • If you recall my post, you’ll note that I was hopeful of a victory against India after the rain delay. However, I reckon my concerns about keeping Guptill in are a whole lot more “expert” than yours which seems to be that you are quite contented to carry an opening batsman you can rely on to not score runs and so let the team down?

        Still it would be so sweet to win by crushing the poms at the home of cricket, so because you think I alone have the power to bestow victory on the BCs – here goes – but only to keep you happy, Happy.

        “I have no doubt that captain Kane will be listening to his inner Jack Tame and picking Guptill again this weekend so that he can continue to watch the endless failures of a once great batsman to ensure he never has the time or the space to return to form or confidence.

        I’m thrilled soyboy Kane is so confident in his team’s batting that despite the fact all tournament long we’ve seen that when your openers fail (as India did so spectacularly and Australia did so hilariously) you lose. I hope it’s not overconfidence.”

        There, happy now Happy?

        Remember though, if I pull off this win for you, it’ll mean a poll surge for socialist Cindy! And you’ll be responsible!

        (Footnote – as I do love the BCs and I’m the eternal optimist, I’ve got $10 on at the TAB on the Guptill scores a hundred and BCs win option – paying $9!)

        • Well done it took me a little time trying to be nice about it but without being bias I do hope Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and a couple of others help Kane Williamson and they all scores some Runs tonight to back up this very good bowling attack and win against the poms. Im a long time fan of Ross Taylor and for him to scores some runs and win will be great with his career not far off finishing giving him a well deserved major Trophy to end on a high.

            • He’s using a form of reductio ad absurdum. Conservatives are about preserving the past (systems), e.g. the 1950s, but Conservatives in the 1950s probably opined for the 1920s. The Conservatives in the 1920s probably opined for the 1880s and so on and so forth. Which when taken to its logical extreme, means going back to the trees in Africa.

              OTOH Green philosophy is pretty much about taking us back to the trees in Africa: to stop ‘polluting’ the stone age is probably too advanced. Stone edged spears are too efficient at killing prey for example.

  5. Tommy Robinson’s court case.
    The sentence is highly unusual as contempt of court cases almost always lead to a non-custodial sentence — especially for journalists. Typically, a media outlet or journalist would face a slap on the wrist or light fine. Yet, one of the judges in the case, Dame Victoria Sharp, said that “nothing less than a custodial penalty would reflect the gravity” of the situation.

    The judge admitted that they specifically wanted to make an example of Robinson.

    As she handed down the sentence, Sharp acknowledged that Robinson was not intentionally interfering and that he did not disrupt the trial — but said that he acted recklessly.

    Robinson already served ten weeks in prison for the livestream before winning an appeal and being released, so they will be reducing the penalty by 138 days.
    However, the judge activated a prior suspended sentence and ordered them to run consecutively — bringing the total sentence to nine months.
    With the time he has already served, the outspoken commentator will end up serving 9.5 weeks in prison for the crime of doing journalism.

    To rub salt in the wounds, the court has also ordered him to pay the costs of the trial. …..

    …. The prosecution claimed that he was “aggressively confronting and intimidating the defendants” — in other words, he is guilty of making pedophiles afraid.

    …. Robinson had went into the court to see if there were reporting bans before he began his livestream, but the staff did not know of any.
    Nothing was posted on the court TV screen or on the doors, which is normally required for these government reporting restrictions.
    The names of the accused had already been published by the BBC that very morning. ….

    Despite the unclear nature of the restriction and the fact that he was on the public sidewalk, Robinson was arrested that day and immediately sent to prison to serve a 13 month sentence.

    Robinson ultimately served 10 weeks in prison for the incident before the charges were overturned in the Court of Appeal. Their ruling that found he was improperly tried, convicted, sentenced and imprisoned. Though he was released, the court left the option open to try him again for the same incident — which they did, and found him guilty.

    During the second trial, the prosecution actually complained that Robinson had the temerity of filming the pedophiles “at a time of high anxiety for them.”

    There is no evidence whatsoever that Robinson’s livestream impacted the outcomes of any grooming gang trial, though the prosecution claimed that his reporting outside the courthouse was a “serious interference with the administration of justice.”

    During each of Robinson’s hearings that I attended, reporters chased Robinson for blocks attempting to be present to take photos if he happened to get hit with a milkshake or assaulted again. They hounded him. What these mobs of “respectable media” did during each court appearance was far more aggressive than anything Robinson said during his livestream — and it is impossible not to notice the double standard.

    Just see how sentences are put to run consecutively.
    An appeal will be put, but how many days will Tommy Robinson remain in jail?

I will be eternally grateful that we were able to become New Zealanders and I was able to give my two the best start in life I possibly could. It grieves me immeasurably that this country has taken such a wrong turn and is now set on a similarly disastrous course that has ruined and doomed the once beloved country of my birth and our former colonial power.

      This is disgusting, they want those that do the work that the ‘bought and paid for’ media won’t and that’s not OK. The NWO globalists have paid for media silence on muslim child rape gangs and they fucking well want what they paid for!

    • I don’t have a great deal of sympathy for Robinson, simply because he deliberately put himself in a position that allowed the authorities to demonstrate how corrupt they are and now cries when they did exactly that.

      Meanwhile on our side of the world, in this very country, Philip Neville Arps resides in prison for a thought crime and you make no noise about it at all.

        • Mr Robinson is a professional protester besides which I seriously fail to see why a piece of slime (from any side of politics) should get more sympathy than anyone else.

          Mr Arps, whether in danger of his life or not, is in prison simply because too many New Zealanders accept the idea that our totally corrupt politicians and pigs can do no wrong.

          His imprisonment is a blight on freedom of thought and on our country.

          I remind you that being a Nazi (He’s not, the National Socialists do not exist in New Zealand) is completely legal within the free world until you try to annex the Sudetenland.

              If you cannot see past the fact that Arps is an arsehole to the fact that his conviction and imprisonment is a blatant attack on the freedom of thought and expression that New Zealanders take for granted you really do need glasses.

              As for Mr Robinson, my stance is that he deliberately sought what has happened to him for publicity purposes. Now he whinges about it.

              Even far-right nutters (and make no mistake, that is exactly what Robinson is) should learn to accept that getting what you want is not always conducive to an easy life.

        I can’t remember Gandhi whinging and whining because he got what he wanted.

        As for the Arps case, I believe it is the most important challenge facing New Zealand today because if it is allowed to stay as is corrupt pollies and pigs have carte-blanche to prosecute and imprison anyone who intimates they share a different opinion from those pigs and pollies.

        Remember O’Driscolls sentencing comments where he stated he considered Mr Arps dangerous because Mr Arps had not changed his thoughts about muslims.

        Not that Mr Arps had actually committed any act against muslims (which he had/has not) but that he didn’t like them.

        O’Driscoll and the government he represents should be locked up – by Mr Arps!

      • Isn’t that why some of us are on this blog? Holysheet is identifiable, isn’t that ‘deliberately putting oneself in a position….’, the same for myself.

        I haven’t previously mentioned it, but I had an unknown to me person comment on a facebook page of mine, they mentioned Kiwiblog and my commenting on there and it wasn’t long after this blog was set up so they had tracked me to here, or it wasn’t about me at all, and then they went to my facebook.

        Does that mean we are prepared to be martyrs for freedom of speech? In my opinion, it does. Tommy Robinso is paying a high price for his bravery in the face of undue pressure.

        The reason that I haven’t mentioned it before is that I didn’t want that to put anyone off commenting, because surely that is the intent, it made me double down.

        I won’t be told to shut up and where I can go and what I can say, and that is where it begins.

          • I’m not sorry. To me, it is the evidence of what others have posited and what I didn’t want to believe was actually true. It wasn’t threatening, just matter of fact.

            I have posted sans pseudonym for a long time, after a double murderer who some can guess who, made some comments to me on Kiwiblog. He had found out that I had donkeys, I had written a poem when two died and it was up on a web page, so there was a lot of digging around done to get behind my pseudonym.

            So the best way to deal with that and counter the drip, drip, drip, was to be able to call it for what it was, and you can really only do that as yourself. In my opinion anyway.

            I am just sorry that it is all true, that freedom is just being eroded that little bit at a time. That is even more reason to do it, to have a counter-narrative.

            It feels very Kate Shepherd. Rights.

  6. The case of being a cruel and unusual punishment for Tommy R. from above link.

    During his nearly three months in prison the first time around, Robinson lost over 40 pounds and was surviving on fruit and five cans of tuna per week, due to concerns about the inmates preparing his meals.
    He repeatedly complained to the prison and requested that they raise the £12 per week commissary spending limit so that he could purchase more packaged food, but they would not allow it.

    Robinson, an outspoken critic of Islam, told The Gateway Pundit that after he was moved to a majority Muslim prison he had to stay inside his cell with the windows shut because people would spit or throw feces through his window.
    He believes that he was deliberately moved to a prison with a high Muslim population to put a target on his back.

    “If he were to have stayed in prison much longer, I fear his very life would have been in danger,” Rebel Media’s Ezra Levant wrote after he was released from the initial imprisonment.

    Additionally, while imprisoned, Robinson was only allowed to see his wife and children twice, for one hour each time.
    At one point, he was told by an inmate that his family was going to be attacked with acid.

    The court was not concerned with his safety upon returning to prison, as Dame Victoria Sharp said those issues were to be addressed with prison authorities.

    Though, she is the one, who pronounced the consecutive sentences knowing this.

    • The judge is a daughter of a globalist robber baron and was appointed to the high court under Cameron, the architect of the recent intensification of muslimification in the UK. What a surprise she is so intent on utu for one who dares point out the consequences of her sponsors’ actions.

      The judiciary are sailing close to the wind around the world, whilst I’m not sure what could replace the current system – it is becoming evident that judicial activism is extinguishing public trust in the model once that’s gone, well it’s going to be messy. Do you trust the judiciary – uptick for no, downtick if you think I’m wrong and they’re all unbiased

    • This is a case of administrative murder, pure and simple. The judge passes the sentence and is free from guilt if Tommy is murdered in prison. The prison authorities make sure he gets put in a high security prison (ie one run by muslim criminal gangs) because “Tommy is such a dangerous prisoner” – despite the fact that he’s guilty of a civil crime and nothing at all to suggest he’s one at all. In the interests of ‘fairness’ and not treating him any differently than any other inmate – they put him in general population.

      They want him dead and they don’t want blood on their hands. Therefore they continue to put him in the most dangerous of circumstances. Funny that a muslim man called Javid can do this – he says he’s not practising (pass me a Tui) – the UK govt is disgusting.

Tommy has certainly been shafted by the judiciary and authorities. They are making an example of him but I do hope he will be kept safe. The backlash from the public on those responsible for him being legal silenced won’t be gentle if any harm comes to him.

      The sentencing marks the end of a series of three major trials after a report on child sexual exploitation in Rotherham revealed that more than 1,400 youngsters had been groomed, trafficked and raped in the town over a 16-year period. ….

      There were emotional and chaotic scenes at Sheffield Crown Court after two of the latest defendants shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they were led from the dock.

      As their supporters began shouting down into the court, one of the victims shouted back ‘justice is served’ as police moved into the public gallery.

      The girl’s pregnancy made headlines in 2001 when she was portrayed as one of Britain’s youngest ever mothers.

      Although five men were arrested, there were no prosecutions at the time after the victim told police she could not say which of the men she had had sex with was the father. ….
      [Finally this time]
      Judge Wright said in court today that she had ‘no hesitation’ in finding that the girl could not remember because she was heavily under the influence of drugs and alcohol. ……

      Today’s sentencing marks the end of a series of three major trials after a report on child sexual exploitation in Rotherham revealed more than 1,400 youngsters had been groomed, trafficked and raped in the town over a 16-year period.

      Last year, the NCA said it had engaged with 133 victims and survivors but investigators were confident that Prof Jay was right when she said in her report that the total was around 1,400.

      The agency said it was looking at hundreds of potential suspects.

      TIMELINE: THE ROTHERHAM SEX SCANDAL
      1997: Following social workers concerns about child sex abuse in Rotherham, a youth project is set up to work with youngsters aged 11 to 25.

      1999: Police begin to investigate complaints of abuse against girls as young as 11, although some reports are never finalised or made public.

      2002: A draft Home Office report into child sexual exploitation mentions a ‘high prevalence of young women being coerced and abused through prostitution’ in the South Yorkshire town.

      It suggested there were more than 270 victims of abuse.

      2003: South Yorkshire Police report found a ‘significant number of girls and some boys who are being sexually exploited’ in Rotherham.

      2008: Operation Central investigation launched by the police, Rotherham Council and other agencies to crack down on the problem.

      2010: Eight men were tried at Sheffield Crown Court for a series of sexual offences against young girls. Five men – Zafran Ramzan, Razwan Razaq, Umar Razaq, Adil Hussain and Mohsin Khan – were convicted and jailed for raping girls as young as 12.

      2012: Rotherham Council identifies more than 50 possible victims of abuse and the Home Affairs Select Committee criticises South Yorkshire Police for its handling of the case.

      2014: HASC concludes both the police and council ‘ignored evidence about the scale of the abuse’

      An independent inquiry led by Prof Alexis Jay that concludes the number of children abused between 1997 and 2013 was ‘at least’ 1,400, with victims ‘as young as 11’.

      2015: Up to 300 suspects are identified by police with several arrests made.

      2016: In February brothers Arshid, 40, Bannaras, 36, and Basharat Hussain, 39, their uncle Qurban Ali, 53, and two women – Karen MacGregor, 59, and Shelley Davis, 40, all found guilty of historic sexual abuse against women now aged in their 30s.

      In November, the last of the four brothers, Sageer Hussain, was also jailed for ‘degrading and violent’ sexual offences against youngsters, along with seven of his associates.

      2017: In February, brothers Basharat Dad, 32, Nasar Dad, 36, both from Rotherham, and Tayab Dad, 34, of Tinsley, Sheffield, were jailed for sex offences along with Matloob Hussain, 41, Mohammed Sadiq, 40, both from Rotherham, and Amjad Ali, of Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

      • Robinson was not highlighting this out of consideration for his fellow man but for political purposes.

        I certainly agree with his view that having these scum in a country (any country) is seriously dangerous to the innocent people of that country.

        However, as I noted before Robinson did what he did (reported outside the courtroom during a sentencing hearing) after being ordered not to to get the reaction (and therefore publicity for his cause) he did.

        He is now whining because exactly what he (and everyone else) knew was going to happen has happened.

        His whining has lost any respect his initial actions may have gained, nor does he do his cause any good with these latter actions.

        Mr Robinson has just proved what his opposition has been saying all along: That he is simply a noisy loser.

        For the purposes of good far better Mr Robinson goes quietly back into anonymity while Mr Farage and mates do the proper work of steering Britain back towards freedom and monarchy.

        • I say good on Tommy Robinson, is it only the left that is allowed to protest, what about all of the named victims and all of those unnamed. he wasn’t even protesting, he was doing his job, a job that we think that our own journalists should do.

          Have we ever imprisoned a ‘journalist for doing their job?

          There will need to be more people protesting about that which is not allowed to be seen.

          As for Arps, which bit about him gets us so outraged? The Nazi bit? Is him putting pigs heads outside of a mosque more or less of a political statement than a dildo being thrown at Stephen Joyce?

          • And if it was someone who was Maori, who put pigs heads in front of the Mosque, would the outcome have been different? Equality before the law and all of that.

            If Arps had said on his facebook that he wanted to put pig’s heads in front of the Mosque would that also have been a hate crime?

            Anyone that thinks that Muslims think of us without hate is deluding themselves, they want what we have, but we are a means to an end and it doesn’t end up well for the real ‘us’.

          Had Robinson gone to jail with the raft of publicity that would entail, snapping one finger salutes in every direction as he went, he would have gained both respect and followers to his cause.

          Instead he’s whinging and whining, pleading with a foreign country to help him, because he got what he wants.

  7. Kaingaroa settlement receives $2.4m for redevelopment
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/394228/kaingaroa-settlement-receives-2-point-4m-for-redevelopment
    “A small Māori village in a Bay of Plenty forest is getting $2.4 million in government funding to improve its dilapidated and rundown housing.
    Ms Mahuta said the community had a strong vision of growth and development in the face of challenges”.

    How did all the houses get run down and dilapidated in the first place then?.
    Would it have anything to do with the fact that Kaingaroa Village is one of the biggest dumps in NZ, predominately inhabited by welfare bums who have no pride or respect for where they live and have been happy to turn the place into something resembling the Bronx.
    No worries though as apparently they have a “strong vision of growth and development” which in reality probably means using the $2.4m to further develop the dope and meth industry in the area.

        No, the police had a wishlist of firearms they didn’t want the law-abiding citizens to have. The pushed for it with demonstrations to the CoL & quisling National. The police are part of the problem in this instance.

  14. Makes one wonder just what is the tradeoff is for the islamic countries.?
    Weapons? Trade?

    “22 countries signed an ‘unprecedented’ letter condemning China’s oppression of Muslims. But none of them come from the Islamic world .”

    22 signatories are: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand , Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.

    Islamic countries have increasingly shied away from criticising China over Xinjiang, for reasons including the fear of China’s economic vengeance.

    The “Organisation of Islamic Cooperation” even went as far as saying that it “commends the efforts of the People’s Republic of China in providing care to its Muslim citizens.”
    https://www.businessinsider.com.au/china-joint-letter-condemn-muslim-oppression-no-islamic-signatories-2019-7?r=US&IR=T

    So the “OIC” knows who has the power, and if necessary believes that China would do what it deems necessary.
    Compare and contrast the OIC’s reaction to the Christchurch shooting.

  15. The vast majority of Greens and NZ first appear to charge nothing in expenses in Wellington
    Interesting to look at politicians expenses and new creative accounting.
    https://www.parliament.nz/en/mps-and-electorates/mps-expenses/members-expense-disclosure-from-1-january-to-31-march-2017/

    Back in first quarter 2017, there were just a handful reporting no expenses.
    I guess this can happen, particularly politicians living in Wellington. Sub total was Wellington $417,536 non Wellington $78,775, air $566,563, surface 423,739, sub total $1,476614, clerks office $117,796

    Rules changed with new government, have a look at first quarter 2019
    There are 26 politicians reporting zero.
    How can this be accurate, non Wellington politicians reporting no expenses.
    Total comes out around the same but no expenses listed for the many many politicians.
    https://www.parliament.nz/en/mps-and-electorates/mps-expenses/members-expense-disclosure-from-1-january-to-31-march-2019/

    NZ First, Greens, and Labour own all 24 zero spenders.
    All national politicians have some expense.

    You can call me a cynical old so and so, but I find it hard to believe most of these would have some expenses.
    So from the start of this COL, the figures are just total bullshit and irrelevant.
    There now a column for VIP Travel, the only reported travel in the period is Simon Bridges $7,711, Anne Tolley $2,584, appears no one else used VIP travel apart from The speaker reporting 2 x$45 and $491 over 9 months.
    So Bridges, Tolley and Mallard are the only ones to utilise VIP Travel.
    This would have to the best creative accounting known to man.
    Does Julie Anne Genter ride her push bike from Auckland and sleep in a cardboard box in Wellington and eat mung beans she has begged for.
    Four others greens appear give there service FOC
    So 5 out of 8 greens have no expenses.
    And hit me with a feather, 5 out of 8 NZ first have zero expenses.
    This creative accounting has been going on since just after change of government.
    No wonder Simon Bridges looks bad, just in NZ first and Greens their would millions going unreported.
    Please tell me why I am wrong, if this is legal reporting, the country is doomed.
    Either there is some very lax reporting or the most open government ever is playing expenses in a very private manner. The Nationals have to blow this up in their faces, the whole 26 of them.

    • The Chinese economy is fucked. Xi Jinping believes in spending the Chinese into prosperity. They’re building, for example, empty concrete cities. The last estimates of Chinese debt were 300% of GDP and that back in 2016 (from memory). It won’t have got better.

      Xi Jinping is a totalitarian. He may have started out all right. But we saw that when he made himself dictator for life, he made the most bizarre set of (temporary) rules like banning the Latin letter ‘N’, ‘10000 years’, ‘Disagree’, ‘Xi Zedong’, ‘Shameless’, ‘Lifelong’ etc. Someone like that has a lust for power possibly greater than Helen Clark.

  19. We’ve started watching The Last of the Tzars on Netflix. It’s a bit spotty in places, the acting is more for scene setting than storyline – but it’s done with an almost documentary flavour; explanations, historical footage, etc. It’s quite enjoyable, but also interesting to see how revolutions build up and how decisions by the leaders of the day can lead to large societal changes.

    It has me wondering, especially after the start of the authoritarian gun theft by the government. How much would it take for revolution in New Zealand? Do you think there is a point where our citizens will rise up against the likes of Ardern and her government of control?

  20. The Tsars probably aren’t a good analogy. Mostly because they didn’t disarm citizens. Not even the more authoritarian Nicholas I did that. Even the secret police under the Tsars were tame compared to what the socialists would eventually implement.

    The main background for the Russian revolution is the backdrop of serfdom. Where serfs had been critical in stopping Napoleon, especially at Borodino. The Russian gentry got a whiff of liberty for all in France and many of them did not like the treatment of the serfs nor autocracy.

    It’s a pity Alexander I did not free the serfs but such is history. After he died and the confusion of Nicholas I inheriting the throne the Decembrists acted and were eventually butchered. But the idea of revolution never died until the Bolsheviks seized power.

    So much so that Alexander II was assassinated after he put in reforms (e.g. liberating the serfs) by those that pretended they wanted reform. What the really wanted was to be able to bitch and moan about the Tsar. The last thing they actually wanted was a Tsar who tried to correct misfortune.

    (Skipping Alexander III)

    But as for Nicholas II, that was a series of calamities. Losing to Japan, WWI, the Germans wanting Russia neutralised (especially with getting Lenin back to Russia), a badly handled riot and most importantly of all a grain shortage. He was also quite weak at ruling, in particular with delegating.

    Or was there something more specific like the various Tsar pretenders?

    Tyrants OTOH disarm the citizenry in an attempt to prevent revolution. It works rather well for most such tyrants. It’s not perfect. Peisistratos was given the boot twice for example. He made his third attempt stick.

    Revolution typically happens over food or more correctly the lack thereof. As someone famous said, “Society is only three meals away from anarchy”. Occasionally revolutions happen for other reasons. I am for the most part ignoring colonial rebellions/revolutions and referring to the citizenry.

    Basically, for revolution to happen here Ardern and her band of arseholes would have to make life intolerable first. They may lack the intelligence to rule effectively but life, in general, is pretty good even with our freedoms being eroded. The Fabian Society figured out to bring about their socialist utopia they’ve got to do it slowly: using the analogy of boiling frogs in the water. Boil the water quickly, the frogs will jump out. Boil it slowly and they’ll not bother to move.

    (This was actually disproven; frogs will always jump out once the water becomes intolerable no matter how slowly you boil the water. But the Fabian Society long pre-existed that experiment and this has been their story for many decades. I think it’s a terrible story since it means they’re trying to boil to death the population. Maybe they aren’t trying that hard to hide their true motives).
