    • “It is incredible that after the programme Labour wilfully attacked the whistleblowers, falsely accusing them of making deliberate, malicious representations, and misleading the public, while also calling them disaffected former officials whose credibility as sources was in doubt.”

      Don’t say anything against the group. So fun watching the Left eat themselves.

  1. The phrase that got me was the police saying “That they would not let anyone take their gun away” from the buy back place if they did not like the offer.

    That is just plain evil.
    And they will probably take your car rego etc etc.

    • You betcha they would have filmed you entering the gates in your car. Photo of you, car, number plate. I bet all have an esay to control enterance way. Betcha you are on film before they take copies of your ID. Once ID you can expect a visit by armed police to check what else you have got.

    • “That they would not let anyone take their gun away” from the buy back place if they did not like the offer.”

      One would hope that any pig committing this action was immediately charged with, and prosecuted for, theft.

      It is perfectly legal to own and possess these guns until the end of the amnesty period.

      On the reverse side any owner turning up expecting a fair and honest price is certainly far too brain-dead to be outside without a minder let alone also armed.

  2. NZ is becoming worse than SA – Apartheid.
    Maori seats, when we have lots of Maoris in Parliament on merit
    Maori education – kohangreo, Immersion and still no progress!
    Maori Oranaga Child murders
    And now because they don’t bother to vote, they want more Maori local body seats.

  3. I watched a movie called “Idiocracy” the other day.

    A pleasant enough hour and a half with the odd laugh detailing the world we are fast heading towards.

    Not even the world detailed in Idiocracy though, had people demanding that their incorrect meaning of fairly ordinary words was correct.

    • Idiocracy (2006)
      I watched it at the time and thought OK, good enough
      Then the quality of movies plunged in 2010 (from a low point of the prior decade) so I watched it again in 2012 after 4 years of the half-caste homo from Hawaii.
      It hit home how much we had moved closer to it.

      The movie is set 500 years into the future but I suspect reality does not have to wait as long as that.
      It had some clever bits but the script could have sharper.
      One theme in it; from wiki:-
      “President Camacho gives Joe the impossible job of fixing the nation’s food shortages, Dust Bowls, and crippled economy within a week.
      Joe discovers that the nation’s crops are irrigated with a sports drink named “Brawndo”, whose parent corporation had purchased the FDA, FCC, and USDA.
      When Joe has the drink replaced with water, Brawndo’s stock drops to zero, and half of the population lose their jobs, causing mass riots.”

      Are we really that far from this madness when people protest for more genders and the cops arrest people for not calling a trannie by a preferred gender;
      or
      Tasmania says hey kids, you can pick your own gender, or not even have one, your call.
      or
      Smokefree 2025 but hey we could legalise dope smoking
      or
      Hey lets kill off productive farms with trees, some plantation but turn others back to native bush coz, well, globby warming.

      It won’t be 500 years. We’re knocking on the door today.

  4. Mike Hoskings is making some good points about Genter’s EV tax and subsidy idea.
    If people want to buy and EV, they can, and they should not be subsidised by the small businesses and farmers that need SUV’s and Utes.

    • One thing that always annoys me somewhat about Americans commenting on other countries gun laws, especially NZ and Australia’s, is their failure to understand that the concept of using guns for self defence is alien and against the law for us (as utterly mad as that is) and that any New Zealander or Australian who does use a firearm for self defence, except in the most dire circumstances, is highly likely to have their firearms licence withdrawn and be in more trouble than their scumbag attacker.

    • Coming to a favela near you…
      The government needs to “crack” down on all these homeless people.
      Why are they homeless?
      Have they got a job?
      How many children do they have and how many fathers and why, and where are the fathers.
      How come our new immigrants can get jobs and don’t seem to feature in crime and homelessness?

    • I personally think motels should have to declare on their booking site if they allow welfare referrals to live at their property.
      People stay at motels expecting the environment to be normal of a “traveller” environment but instead find it is more like a lowend residential block of flats with kids running riot around the place,people sitting around in the carpark smoking and drinking all day and just a generally gross atmosphere.
      This is not what travelling people staying their paid for or deserve.
      WINZ referrals or travellers,but to take both without informing people so they get to make an informed choice is greedy and a really shit way to treat genuine customers.
      I have been caught by this same situation once in Hamilton myself, but never again as it was a thoroughly disgusting experience.
      I always email the place before booking now and directly ask them if the take WINZ people.

      • I agree, its so unfair to have to share facilities with the homeless beneficiaries. Maybe these motels are doing themselves out of business as more and more will go air B&B and personally I don’t blame them. What is this about can’t find a house Oh WINZ will put you up in a motel, great the taxpayer pays again.

  5. Maori Urged To Ditch Oranga Tamariki
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/394267/oranga-tamariki-inquiry-hui-grows-forced-to-find-larger-space
    “Māori language advocate Dame Iritana Tawhiwhirangi says Māori need to stop working for government agencies, and operating within western structures that don’t prioritise the importance of whakapapa and whanau”.

    You people are a complete joke as you carry on with this charade that you so value fuckapapa and farnow yet your kids keep dying at a rate way higher than any other ethnic group in NZ.
    In fact the irony is if Maori stopped killing their kids at current levels their wish of ditching CYFS could happen tomorrow which would be great because it would stop them whinging and also save the tax payer a bomb as about half a CYFS could be shutdown.

    • yes great.
      Change it back to Cyps and sack all Maori employees, and stop helping, assisting Maori families.
      Let them pay for their own Organg Taramaki with the taxes they pay.
      Oh – they don’t pay much so let them iwi pay for any services they wish to provide.

      In the meantime I dont care about their families and children as they don’t.
      If they want to be like third world people let them.
      But even third world peoples don’t bash their children.

    • Fascinated that these people who hate the white system are more than happy to receive a Dame. hood or the such equivalencies. I wonder why they do this, when the system they abhor is the one that dishes out these awards? Just asking. Maybe Oranga Tamariki will stop when they stop killing their babies??? There are some beautiful Maori people out there who are wonderful parents, they however seem to have no influence at all in these matters

  6. Winston Peters, foreign minister, seems to like going on the record by signing things, by joining in with 21 other countries to signing a letter of concern to the UN, how China is re-educating, retraining, and so reprogramming Uighur’s to be good citizens.

    Then these UN ambassadors from 37 countries released a letter Friday defending China’s treatment of Uighur and other minorities in the Xinjiang region, in direct response to Western criticism earlier this week.

    • The CoL may feel a bit torn, as we are in the opposite camp, being against Venezuela. ?
      Some of those countries have had much experience in reprogramming, re-educating and retraining their citizens.
      ————-
      How can it be a problem? when so many islamic countries seem to approve the re-education and retraining of Muslims.
      Perhaps the Uighur’s misunderstood Mohammad? or read the wrong koran? or are not reverential enough? // ?

      These signatories are from the “Organisation of Islamic Cooperation” OIC .
      Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Egypt, Algeria, Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, Turkmenistan, Kuwait, Somalia, Syria, Eritrea, Tajikistan, Burkina Faso, Comoros, Gabon, Nigeria, Cameroon.
      It would appear that many of the OIC approve of the re-education program, to prevent jihad struggles? // 🙂 or biding their time like advised with a “hudna”, for now.

    • The list of countries not condemming the Chinese actions is interesting. Many muslim countries there.

      Me personally , I am disappointed that the Chinese are trying to re-educate the Uighurs.
      A better move is to assist them to leave like Myanmar did.

    • NZ abandoned our gun registry because it was riddled with errors and neither prevented or solved a single crime. Canada wasted 2 billion dollars on their registry, which they established in 1995 against the advice of New Zealand which they specifically asked for, because it neither prevented or solved a single crime and was riddled with errors (amazing eh?!).
      If we now embark on another costly attempt at introducing a registry Stuart Nash will still have no idea how many guns are out there because so many people will refuse to register their guns. The only semi autos the government can be reasonably sure of getting back in this present round of confiscations are those their law abiding owners dutifully registered as “E” category. Well Mr, Nash fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

    • “but without a registry, he said they had no idea how many guns were out there.”

      This is absolute nonsense or a downright lie. Every gun that comes into the country is subject to a “Permit to Import” which lists make, model and serial number, that is the only registry needed. Since the number of guns actually made in NZ is very small indeed and the number smuggled into the country is not likely to be huge the number of firearms imported very closely equates to the number of guns “out there.”
      Does Nash expect us to believe that Customs has lost or destroyed the records of all those guns imported?

    • Right, so you think a guy who won’t own up to paternity of his own son is a good guy.

      Banks is a Christian who thinks the world was ‘created’ 6000 years ago in 6 days by a sky fairy who then sat down for a cup of god-tea and siesta on the seventh day.
      There were no dinosaurs or evolution. There was no Big Bang only creationism. Darwin was wrong.

      A good Christian who procured abortion chemicals when abortion was totally illegal and gave them to his pregnant, sometime girlfriend.
      This would fit for the son of an illegal abortionist.

      The woman refused to take the concoction and had the child.
      Banks was on his way to being wealthy but allowed another man to unknowingly pay child support for his own child for 15 years.
      When the court ruled that Banks is the legitimate father, Banks ignored the court and has been unresponsive to the court in all aspects.

      This man who ignores the ruling of a court is the person you want to make rules for Auckland.
      We are desperate but not that desperate.

      Banks has a history of wanting others to follow the rules but not himself.
      He would not park his Ferrari in the mayoral carpark while Mayor of Auckland and parked it on the street in a metered spot but would not pay for that. This reduced council revenue while his allocated carpark sat empty.
      He used his cellphone on a domestic flight while Minister of Police.
      For years while at school he collected the empties from the after 6pm grog houses and cashed them in. John Banks benefited from crime.

      He was Director of Huljich Wealth Management that was cooking the books and should have faced court as much as Doug Graham and Bill Jeffries did.

      I don’t want to see Auckland sail any faster down the river in a cabbage boat (his language) with this man at the helm.
      Our options are grim. John Archibald Banks does not make it any less grim.

  7. The cricket

    Heartbreaking! The BCs were the better side, they batted more effectively, the bowled more authoritatively. It took an inspirational partnership between the two most charismatic Eng players and a one in a million fluke 6 off a sliding Ben Stokes to bestow victory on the Poms.

    Yes, there was a wonderful poignancy of them rising from the ashes of their abject 2015 WCC to winning the world cup against the team that utterly humiliated them in that tournament. However, NZ looked the champions. They had the world no1 team reeling, they didn’t take the pressure off it just wasn’t their time.

    And that last bit sucks. My only moan about their performance was in the first few overs, when Guptill hit a six and a four off Archer in one over. He looked to be getting his old mojo back. And then Nicholls dropped the anchor and just at the point where Guptill needed to see the ball and return to his groove – he was off strike for all but one ball of two and a bit overs. Depressingly, as the ember had burned low, when Guptill finally faced he got out straight away. If Nicholls had just managed to turn the strike over, my heart tells me Guppy would have been off and England were gone for all money.

    And how does one team being all out for 241 work out as a draw with a team that was 241 for 8? Doesn’t the all-out team lose to the ‘for 8’ team? Didn’t England lose by 2 wickets?

  8. In his latest podcast Leighton Smith reads out quite a bit from a piece by Evan Sayet (US Conservative speaker/writer and comedian). Sayet gives his views on why President Trump is winning against the Democrats — basically playing them at their own game and above all continually fighting them. What he says about the Democrats could be applied to the “left” worldwide. Well worth listening to it.

    • Did you ever watch “an Innocent Man ” Starring Tom Selleck? Great movie, on this very issue. All I hope is this cop gets sent in with the general prison population. He won’t last 100 years…. It’s a bit like false Rape allegations, the victims seldom ever recover completely.

    I sold my building to the people that I sold my business to, but I really didn’t want to be dealing with all of this strengthening and mine was a stand-alone building, buildings that share walls with others that might not want to upgrade etc is going to be very problematic and the facades are unlikely to be kept in small towns.

      • One of our church op shops has just moved out of its spot that it has occupied for years, it has moved into a larger space as its building is for sale, hard enough with tenant, nigh on impossible without a tenant, it is small and sandwiched between similar separately owned holdings.

        Where are businesses to move to while they upgrade or rebuild their premises. Some of these buildings are on Maori lease land, I guess that the building owners can just walk away from their worthless buildings?

        What would happen then duckling71? As leases rely on the value of the improvements, if the improvements have no value what then? Are the lease holders still on the hook with untenantable properties?

  13. I’ve always held that freedom to succeed must include the freedom to fail & this holds true both financially & socially. As such the right to abuse alcohol & drugs should only be limited to that causing physical harm to others.

    But inebriation isn’t a problem confined to the 21st Century. Back in October 22, 1900 no less than the Manawatu Standard referred to a Parliamentary session with “loathing and disgust”. Apparently:

    …..” “Drunkenness was always in evidence and was not looked on as an offence… In one case at least it was openly encouraged by the Premier [Richard John Seddon].

    “We say this advisedly, for, recognising that one member was being kept around the House in a state of semi-lunacy through drink because the Government could always depend on his vote in a tight place, an attempt was made to get him away when a pair was offered.”…..

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/manawatu-standard/lifestyle/113990395/loathing-and-disgust-boils-to-the-surface-in-sensational-editorial#comments

    The present lot though doubtlessly affected by marijuana, lawnmowers & Peruvian marching powder usually manage to keep their behaviour just this side of ‘semi-lunacy’. 🙂
