Experts: "a smoking ruin"

must be persuaded to stay at TV3 at any cost as a "smoking ruin" is rebuilt

I'll have half of whatever the luvvie is smoking.  Must be goooood sh*t!

That aside, a wise person told me a long time ago that "graveyards were full of indispensable people".

And secondly having burnt a few bridges as the door hit her arse on the way out a few days ago, the legend in her lunchtime celebrity TV3 newsreader would do well to remember that second time round grovelling never ends well.

Are you worried?

MediaWorks' loss of talent worrisome

Campbell?  Barry?  Zero talent there.

There was never any talent at TV3, just jumped up news readers and reality TV merchants hawking manufactured scandal as news and current affairs.

Another show pony is hit by the door as TV3 races to oblivion.  Seems to be a trait of lefties these days.

Company 1: All care, zero responsibility Company 2: Well done

Last Saturday we picked up the unaccompanied minors ex Jafaland from the airport at Palmerston North. 

As the babysitters of choice for these school holidays, we were pleasantly surprised to receive multiple texts during the day as the airline scanned and took charge of the grandkids at various stages of the journey. Unaccompanied minors are given a wristband like a fitbit band which holds their travel details to be scanned at certain points of the trip. 

The texts are a big improvement on the previous manual process, keeping both parents and grandparents fully informed from check in to eventual handover at the destination. 

Well done Air New Zealand!

Meanwhile we have Company 1 doing their level best to lose more customers as they go out of business.  No BZ for the Naked Bus.

Labour: "We have other principles" as they whore themselves for the native vote

The Labour Party has joined the Maori Party in reconsidering its support for a law change which will establish a massive marine sanctuary in the Kermadec Islands

Unprincipled whores chasing votes whilst heading for extinction.

Unionised do not learn from history

the harsh reality is this factory is no longer sustainable due to the lack of scale and cost-competitiveness  

The cost of being union scum.

John Key's vanity project...

$26 million up the spout.

57% said hands off our flag.  Labour Lite's leader is told to piss off.

Now all who have the other rag can use it to wipe their backsides with it.

Racist and offensive? Really?

asks people to say whether they agree or disagree with the statement: "Maori should not receive any special treatment."

Would be offended lefties revert to to type and scream the "R" word.

Mr Davis said it was a leading question and would feed the attitude that there was special treatment for Maori. "It's out and out racist. Were there any other questions that were targeting any other ethnicity? No. Just the Maori one."

Damned right!  I feel offended that someone asks a question what most, including myself,  would feel the statement to be truthful and lefties ever looking political traction go for the default taking offence, screaming "Racist" and trying to have the survey changed, removing the supposedly "offensive" question.

It's a question that is long overdue for asking in this country. One that needs to be asked without fear or favour.

And the enablers in National who have whored themselves and their party for the Maori vote via the oft-repeated over the past century "full and final" settlements would do well to take note.

Lost in NZ #6723: The Herald

Again, Granny is lost.

A man who was found dead in his home on the Coromandel Peninsula may have died "unexpectedly" and "in his sleep", a relative says.

His body was found this morning by police at a Kennedy Bay house after they were alerted to his death by a family member.


The story is about a Kennedy Bay in the Coromandel Peninsula, but Granny in her haste uses a pic of  another bay, Putiki Bay on Waiheke.  And labels it Kennedy Bay, just because it is adjacent to Kennedy Point.

What's a mere 50km when your audience knows no geography other than Skytower.

The Herald, lost for the want of a decent editor.

It's never too early for a Tui

this isn't about a political issue

Yeah effing Right!


Zipper continues opening exposing city

The 4000Km long Kermadec-Tonga Trench zipper which terminates at Christchurch City continued opening this morning with another quake overnight.  The residents of the Village of the Damned have had another unsettling early morning wakeup.

Christchurch City continues to sink as the trench lengthens and Banks Peninsula moves eastward.  Maybe Captain Cook's original map of the area foretells the final outcome.

Lost in NZ: The Herald



The Herald turns New Zealand upside down with the location of Marsden Cove Marina adjacent to Marsden Point.

I'll believe it when I see it

Auckland Council is going back to the drawing board after a majority of councillors scuttled housing density proposals in the city's leafy suburbs

Think the urban planners will stop at this knock-back?   These bastards have built and staked their entire careers on this high density plan.  Mark my words, they'll now be retreating and resorting to underhanded corrupt methods of implementing the master plan as currently written.

I'll believe the high density master plan has been binned (not shelved) when I see other choices like real greenfield expansion.  And Phil, 8000 houses on a Remmers golf course satisfying your rich prick class warfare ideologies does not fill that vision.

Some good people were captured by the wrong lobbying. The loud voices of some suburbs who had been wound up to believe they had been "hugely up zoned" won the day and young people, community housing providers, urban designers, social workers, families, sustainability advocates and ordinary Aucklanders were drowned out of the debate

This one needs to be stopped in her tracks.  A long tenure acolyte of Mayor Bob whom ran his old fiefdom of Waitemata City with its residents paying handsomely for exorbitant ideas like film studios which no-one could afford, need or want.  Along with his own brand of eco-terrorism of restrictive subdivision rules in or near the Waitakeres, riding roughshod over the rights of property owners.  Let the community housing providers, urban designers, social workers, families, sustainability advocates do their thing on their dime, not mine.

The very reason Jafaland has issues is because he and his Labour ilk like Hulse still infest the council. They're still there neck deep in the trough pushing their soviet style high density urban planning.  And they're looking to install a Len MkII, namely Phil who currently is not willing to jump out of one trough for a chance at another.


Yes, I'll believe it when I see it.

How to bugger the value of your business

If it's hard enough to get doctors to work alongside me, it's going to be a devil of a job to get doctors to replace me.

The indispensable doctor finds that no-one wants to work or buy his practice in the benefit ridden backwater of  unemployment that is Tokoroa.  He's also finding out that the local ferals on social media do not like his stated income.

Graveyards are full of the indispensable.  Shut up shop, forget selling your practice.  Your opposition knows how to milk the system and get others to pay.  If you haven't sorted your retirement at $400K pa you never will. 

As for any residual value in your practice as a saleable business, I'd say you've buggered that in the town going full disclosure about your income.  I see your customers deserting like lemmings.

No doubt when the opposition set up shop, all practices were offered a slice of the action. For whatever reason, probably valid at the time, your practice stayed away from their business model, with utterly predictable results. 

Now we get to read a sob story.


WindyTy: A decent weather site at last

Dunno where I saw the link a week or so ago, probably lurking on some site, but this weather site has decent real time and forecast weather with all the graphics you'd ever need.

And if you need to delve into the real black arts area of weather forecasting, you can see a week ahead.

Get over there and spend some time exploring the site.  There's reams of info.
