Stuff sub-editors onto it

Police divers are today scouring Kawhia Harbour for the bodies of a mobile phone chief and his wife presumed dead after their plane crashed into the sea yesterday

Unfortunately I don't think they will find anything there.  Apparently the reported crash site is to the northwest, not inside the harbour, but in the open sea, the Tasman Sea.

It ditched in the sea around 12.20pm, 20 kilometres northwest of the entrance to Kawhia Harbour, near Gannet Island

But the Stuff try hard sub-editors once again prove their non-value in reporting real news outside of the beltway.

Nats find their moral compass?

It has to be... that someone is held to account...

... should never have been built, that should never have been consented and there is no one held to account

The Minister of Housing waxes lyrical about shutting the stable door because there's votes to be gained.  Too bad he doesn't apply similar logic to make local government accountable for signing the hundreds of leaky buildings off. 

Oh, that's right, there's no votes in extending their piss weak moral compass that far.

Bring back the death Penalty!

Weather prognosticating groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring for 2013, and continued snows and frigid temperatures have a lot of Americans upset

Punxsutawney Phil must pay for his crimes to society.

On or about February 02, 2013, at Gobbler’s Knob, Punxsutawney Phil did purposely, and with prior calculation and design, cause the people to believe that Spring would come early. Contrary to the Groundhog day report, a snowstorm and record low temperatures have been and are predicted to continue in the near future, which constitutes the offense of MISREPRESENTATION OF EARLY SPRING, a Unclassified Felony, and against the peace and dignity of the State Of Ohio.
 SPECIFICATION: The people further find and specify that due to the aggravating circumstances and misrepresentation to the people that the death penalty be implemented to the defendant, Punxsutawney Phil.

I wonder if we could get the death penalty for the peddlers of AGW, climate change and other warmist BS like carbon taxes, now proven to be utter lies?

Marinating in radical leftist cultural Marxist indoctrination

Expanding marriage to include same-sex couples may alter the institution's meaning for religious conservatives who believe that God created marriage to propagate the species. But that effect is abstract and long-term. The immediate effect of a marriage equality ruling would be that the gay couple already living down the street would become eligible for a marriage license — and nothing would change in the daily lives of gay-marriage opponents.
I wonder if these are lies of commission or omission? The fact is, people of deep traditional faith will be further banished from the public square and the public schools will be even more marinated in radical leftist cultural Marxist indoctrination. Society will be deeply divided on the issue. To say otherwise is morally bankrupt in the extreme. Shame on Professor Klarman.
Progressives push lies like this to advance their agenda. Then they demonize those who push back with the truth. Behold the evil people.

Meanwhile here in New Zealand the evil people are really pushing the boat out in force as the pushback takes hold.  For months the liberals have assaulted the populace about how it will not affect current marriages, but real citizens have seen through the haze of lies and are finally saying 'Enough!'.

Opponents of gay marriage say the jump shows people are waking up to the negative social effects of changing the Marriage Act.

Those driving the pushback are being demonised for daring to speak out, every day there are MSM snippets on homosexual marriage as being good for you.  That it will not affect you.  The backlash is telling as real New Zealanders say this is not for our society.

We've become a bunch of PC wowsers

A mother went shopping after leaving her baby alone in a car with a note telling other carpark users to call her if there were any issues.

the baby looked well-cared for

FFS!  A normal call by any frazzled and tired parent.  Who hasn't done this?

Unfortunately in our modern PC society there's now no difference between leaving the rugrat for five on a quick errand vs the addled bludger gambling her life away all day at the pokies. Some bastard do-gooder will dob you in!

New Zealand, you need to get real.

The noo global religion: Turd Tax coming right up!

the UN is launching a global campaign to improve sanitation for the 2.5 billion people who don't have it

FFS!  Not content with losing the battle on AGW to the rising tide of evil warmist climate change deniers, the UN has found a new religion to peddle to the unwashed.  And no doubt tax the sh*t out of in the name of sanitation.

six billion of the world's seven billion people have mobile phones but only 4.5 billion have access to toilets or latrines

Good to see people have their priorities right, knowing you can take a dump anywhere.  At least the Turd Tax will be administered by an organisation well known for producing loads of unadulterated crap.

Labour will tax smartphones, laptops and iPads

Labour's revenue spokesman David Cunliffe said the compliance cost relative to the amount that could be raised through the laptop and phone tax was likely to be higher

Typical, thieving Labour  keeps the revenue door open and will not rule out yet another tax should it ever regain the treasury benches.  Always keeping options open to fleece hard working small businesses.

"After that, everything became a big green blur"

'They took me Lucky Charms, they took me Lucky Charms… 
Erin go fuck yourself, you Saxon pigs!’

the biggest embarrassment for Irish-Americans since Chappaquiddick

Daresay his military career just went the way of a four leaf clover as the Camp Commandant is looking for scapegoat.

Bound to get some treehuggers exercised

Horizons Regional Council has today approved two consents for North American energy companies Tag Oil Ltd and Apache Corporation to drill exploratory wells in Tararua.

Great, get on with the job of tapping into the oil that's been leaking out of the ground for a century or more.  It's not the first time for oil drilling in the area.

I suppose the town will now fill up with the professional treehugging protestors in their house buses and the like as drilling commences.  We've already got a local lynch mob of concerned citzenry trying to whip the populace into shape through public meetings with emotive ads about the dangers of fracking via the council weekly rag.

They'll be good company for the other dregs of society that seem to have infiltrated Dannevegas in recent times, as other jurisdictions like Wanganui have restricted their patch.  You can often see the idlers strutting their stuff like peacocks in the high street in their red coloured finery during the day.  And at night, an increased presence by Mr Plod has led to many being processed for incarceration.

Let the entertainment begin.

From the FFS files...

Three fire engines were called out to an Onehunga school this afternoon after reports of a mercury scare.  

Really?  Three bloody firetrucks were called out?  FFS!

I wonder how many taxpayer dollars that wasted mollycoddling the over-protected species of modern unionised teachers.  Next there'll be a national call for digital thermometers to reduce risk to the poor dears.  It will soon be a human right in their collective contracts.

Get real! Most real New Zealanders of a certain age would have more more elemental mercury rattling in their fillings than what could spill out of a bloody thermometer.

And I always can remember having to explain to my mother why the arse had been blown out of the glass clinical thermometer after I'd tried to fake a temperature to wag school for the day.  You see, she required scentific proof to not get on that school bus, so some mercury in the jug and her cuppa never did us any harm.

Drought continues: Still no rain [update]

A couple of spits yesterday, not even enough to fill pipes to tanks for a first flush.  Today's forecast could, like yesterday, bypass here east of Ruahines.  Time to get the water truck.

[update 1400]
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyy!  First flush done, both tanks filling.  Then sun came out, that was it!

"We're good looking as well"

Three sons of anti-violence campaigner Hinewhare Harawira - and nephews of MP Hone Harawira - are facing charges over an assault on a 12-year-old boy

About time.  No doubt their cock rellies have tried all manner of under the table deals to get these thugs off. 

Now we await raping of taxpayer wallets via legal aid, the slap with a wet bus ticket for 'they are such good boys' by an esteemed member of the judiciary, along with the customary home D and community service.  Neither of which will in all probability be completed.

Not so good looking now, eh boy?

Any publicity is good...

100% pure New Zealand.  Take that ban everything greens.

Drought Update [update III]

With the picture as predicted for an hour's time I should drowning under all that rain.

But outside, the reality is I can still see stars here in Dannevegas.  One can only hope that the water pump on the house tank will not be sucking air today.

0730 Cows out on long acre.  Precipitation has commenced, mind you clouds are still high and I could piddle faster.   Looking at the rain radar/forecast, don't expect much today east of Ruahines.
[update II]
5 past 0730.  Precipitation ceased, sun struggling.

[update III]
1815 - still no rain, looked promising a few times.

Desperately seeking a connection

a Pope who knows at least something about rugby

the first Pope to be born under the "Cruz del Sur", the Southern Cross

As always, the purveyors of MSM weekend drivel show their desperation for that all important but elusive Kiwi connection.  FFS!

The drought will break!

Have no fear. 

It has never not rained here in New Zealand.

Brown: Representation based on race

"I suspect it wouldn't matter who runs against him, he is unlikely to win," Mr Carter said.

"The question will be whether he decides to take a hiding or not.

Far North District Council plans to provide Maori seats as part of its proposed unitary authority were "apartheid"

With statements like that, the man would get my vote.  Pity there wasn't someone of the same calibre standing against the apartheid in the Super City council.

Greens want more sin taxes [updated]

a capital gains tax
taxes ... to ... protect the environment
wealth transfer taxes

Thieving bastards.  The tax take goes ever upward.  My comment below.

It’s always about TAX, TAX and yet more TAX! Never once has a politician or one of these imported experts advised to reduce the total tax take. That’s because they have a vested interest in remaining on the political treadmill, bugger who is actually paying.
Your party in your view might be doing God’s work requiring real tax paying stiffs, ie those working, not being indulgent on a benefit, to pay for ill-perceived environmental sins. Meanwhile the next party in line has their wheels that need oiling with yet more tax.

One day a principled party will stand, saying enough is enough, work within the cloth you’ve got and actively work to reduce the total tax take.

Would be tax merchants don't like the response, have taken to deleting commentary.

White smoke seen

God help us. 

Another God-botherer has been elected to take charge of the Augean stables.

New Zealand Parliament forever damned [updated]

Following steps of a rather informal consultation with my fellow Asian constituents, and also constituents of wider communities, I’ve now decided to vote in favour of this Bill, for the following reasons

Informal consultation?  More like pressured.

Yet another MP proves to be unwilling to stick to core principles.  Principles which you know are right, being seriously conflicted on, but are willing to jettison to be in with the favoured crowd "on the right side of history".

Utterly despicable ethics which ever way you argue in my opinion.  The Parliament of New Zealand will be forever damned with politicians proven to trade principle for votes.

I hope Mr Huo you can live with your change of principle.


Mr Huo's conscience is already pricking.  He's deleted my comment.

Union owes taxpayer, punter gets doorstepped by debt collector

I have received several requests that I repay a $22.78 [union] contribution which Novopay automatically made on my behalf when they paid me. I have made no effort to do so, since I never received that money ...

"Yesterday morning, a courier arrived and woke up my household. The delivery was a letter from Novopay informing me that debt collectors would be employed to take control of my $22.78 debt."

Once again a union failing to pay their bills.  Quite happy to receive the money, but as usual tardy in stumping up on debts and taxes.  So the punter gets doorstepped by a debt collector.  How's that work, then?  The base overpayment has been repaid, but the union component is outstanding and not forthcoming.  The fault lies with Novopay-union not Novopay-punter.

When is our Parliament going to excise us of these fraudulent rorting thieves?  Unions and their fellow travellers are quite happy to scream the odds over a pay system with a 1% failure rate (probably much better than the old Datacom system), but like the leftard MPs they support, very slow admit to fault on their part.

The first cut wasn't big enough

Auckland's Westpac rescue helicopter service is considering asking a court to reinstate a $300,000 cut in its 2013-14 operating grant from the Auckland Council

I say cut at least another $300K from their impost on the ratepayer.  Anything to reduce my exorbitant rates.  Then we might see some operational budgetary restraints kick in.  I wonder if the suits and names running the trust have taken a serious cut yet?

Obviously the first cut wasn't big enough if they can afford court action.

It's always the 1% at fault

84,822 people paid collectively $173.58 million

That makes an average annual payout of $53206 per teacher.  Well overpaid in my view.

And it's only the 1% that might have something about which to complain. 

Just get on with teaching the rugrats, you will get paid. Sometime.

Strike Two! [Update: MSM copies post theme]

Strike One:  Economy wrecking quakes demolish the Village of the Damned.

Strike Two: Country-wide economy wrecking drought.

Strike Three:  ???  wrecks the economy.

The Nats must be wondering what else might conspire to wreck the econmy before the 2014 election.

After all with Labour leaving the cupboard near bare late 2008, then the global markets tanking the economy has not had a good run of late.

Some possibilities to consider...

Maybe Len Brown gets another try at the poisoned chalice.

A tsunami could roll into the beltway.  Maybe Rangitoto II pops up just north of all those yuppies on Paratai Drive.  The long locked Alpine Fault could unlock.  Like an eruption, we are apparently well overdue for such events.

Or we could get all three together.  In one location.  Most would not consider it any great loss if the beltway was purged.

Anyway at least we know it will all be Labour's fault.

What next? A plague of locusts? Or frogs? Or boils? With half of the North Island officially deemed drought-affected - and the remainder fast heading that way - Bill English must be asking himself what he did in some past life to have seemingly so incensed the forces of nature.

The post theme is copied a day later. I note, without acknowledgement.

Sledging Oztralians

You can take them out of England, but you just can't take the convict out of them

Clarkson puts the dingo paparazzi in their place.

How to elect your next Pontiff

All the sordid detail here.

HT Theo Spark

We didn't get our bribe cheque in the mail!

was outraged to read of the closure in a public notice

Northland officials to apologise to Maori for lack of consultation

would seriously affect iwi members who used the beach for food gathering, recreation and spiritual purposes

Didn't take long for them to stick their hand out for some serious greasing did it?  Under 14 days!

the exposure for the Far North would be huge

One would hope that Top Gear would tell the world that Stone Age culture is alive and grasping on the beach.

Labour will reduce tax take...

the Government could achieve all it wanted within a reasonable time frame without hitting taxpayers in the pocket

I look forward to their leader Mr Mumble endorsing this one.  Pigs will fly!

Outreach programme for bent Kiwi soldiers in Afghanistan

A distressed New Zealand soldier took his life in Afghanistan just hours after confessing his feelings for a male colleague of junior rank

The NZDF has to mollycoddle a queer in the ranks who has taken a shine to his oppo whilst on watch on the front-line graveyard shift.  Then he tops himself, because the feelings weren't reciprocated.

FFS!  Aren't these pricks supposed to be fighting a war, not running a front-line outreach programme for queers in the middle of the night?  NZDF really needs to get its priorities in place.

And an utterly disgusting headline to go with the story.  Made me want to puke, suggesting that he's a war hero because he was gay.
