Some common sense on body snatching

As if there could be any civil way to conduct a body snatching, Dr Walker utters some common sense for those contemplating such an act.
should have stood by the widow, found out what her wishes were and supported her in the expression of her wishes

Supporting the grieving spouse and engaging in dialogue.

A much better way of resolving any issues at the time of tragedy.

Bestiality and Granny

Granny Herald has this video gem.
Man charged with having sex with horse

Oh, Granny, I didn't know you had it in you.

I am sure y'all be wanting to hop right over there for a squiz. Yes, I know, purely for your own personal elucidation. Now to sit back and watch the hit rate climb.

Like Liarbour performing like a trained seal at the moment, you see, it is all about getting the hits!

Disclaimer: No animals were harmed in the posting of this post, although the horse's reputation has been sullied and does actually feature in the video.

Bank cuts fees

Who would have thought. Times must be tough.

Just days ago we were being regaled with tales of a tax rort worth hundreds of millions. Now we are being told that one of the big five is breaking ranks to cut penalty fees. Fees that customers have long complained about, but as life has been so good, thoroughly ignored.

Banks must be really scratching for new customers or else in deep up the creek. God forbid, next bastard banks might actually give some service to use the customer's money!

Oh dear, where will it all end? Won't someone think of the shareholders? Next, I suppose they too will be all over Twitter and TradeMe looking for a handout from the taxpayer.

Bludgers Anon

I have refrained from reading too much into Liarbour's latest foray into half-arsed stories designed to jerry lefty support but finally thought I'd have a squiz at the intial article.

I nearly choked on my Weetbix.
The DPB is a living...

The sense of entitlement never stops. Like criminals, bludgers such as these forgo any perceived rights when they are sponging off my taxes.

And why would I want do that?

Would that be the same as these submitters learning a useful communication tool like English?

Following words

Maori is the language of Aotearoa New Zealand.

1850s: Pakeha becomes main language spoken.

Just two questions.

When was New Zealand renamed Aotearoa New Zealand?

When did the term Pakeha become a language?

Clarkson tells the one-eyed Scottish idiot like it is - Again!

He used the c-word to describe Gordon Brown in not-for-broadcast comments during the recording of this week's episode

Wonder if will he get to apologise again?

Trust in money men almost rock bottom

sharebrokers, for example, were trusted not at all by 32% of respondents with household income below $60,000

different income groups appeared to share a similar low opinion of insurance advisers

And they wonder why?

At least money men will never reach the bottom.

That special place is reserved for New Zealand politicians.

Just above that are real-estate, insurance and vehicle purveyors.

Nature is in control

Nature, not mankind, is responsible for recent climate change, according to new peer-reviewed research likely to send ripples around the world.

This will have an effect. This is scientific research, not an opinion.

Funny that.

Westpac never learns

A Nelson man fronts up and tells Westpac where to stick it when refused a loan. Had yards of equity.

Yes, he drew out $190,000.00 in cash this morning. And made them count it. Every last $20 note!

Been there, done that with those bastards.

At the time some years ago, had the best part of $1M of lowly geared property mortgaged with Westpac in various family entities and over $150K in cash savings. A priority customer I was often told.

And then they started charging me 35c per cheque. That didn't last a month before I had moved all my business elsewhere.

Years ago I remember my first bank ANZ telling me at 9.30 in the morning I couldn't have a $3K overdraft for two weeks after banking reliably with them for five years. Stick that I said, cash me up now and close my accounts. By 12 o'clock that very same day I had a $20K unlimited overdraft facility with a bank I had never previously set foot in.
If you don't support the community, the community won't support you.

Bastard banks never learn.

Not even with your bargepole...

No I am not going to blog about the media circus that is Phil In's life at the moment. He appears to be writing the final chapters in his autobiography very well by himself.

Nor am I going to blog about the travesty we witnessed in the courtroom but thankfully completed this week. RIP Sophie. I will say thank you Mr Weatherston Snr for being the gentleman with your commentary.

However I am watching that other circus of corruption being played out in another courtroom as Big Dad's obfuscations are being proven. Unfortunately, even if proven against Big Dad, the main players in these matters will not be charged. That is the way of NZ Politics. Rotten to the core.

Meanwhile to the main topic.

Carrots and a stick

... if the public service believe or act as if nothing has changed then there certainly will need to be change." He said the Government expected "significant and long-lasting change" in the public service

At last, a long overdue stick to be applauded. Just maybe New Zealand may actually get some real government.
When you've got $10 billion to $12 billion deficits and 10 years of deficits, the biggest risk is that people will make no change, and services can disappear.

The veiled warning is at the end of that sentence. More like 'services will disappear'. And no, Johnny and Billy are sticking to their pledge, for this term. They are not doing the dirty work, the Public Service will do it to themselves.

A beautiful outcome in my book. Stand back and watch the usual suspects stab each other in the back. Oh, such fun!

Weather Warning: Herald lost

Wind warnings for Hawkes Bay, Wairarapa

Areas from Havelock North to Eketahuna are being warned of gusts of wind of up to 110km an hour this afternoon.

Eh? Last time I looked, Alf Grumble's hometown was in Tararua. About 10Km north of where Wairarapa ends.

Granny Herald's weather department is lost.

Liarbour harvesting voter details

As if one might fill in a questionaire from Mickey Cullen's employer.

A questionaire plumbing for personal info.
  • Income
  • Finances
  • Vehicles
  • Home ownership
  • Mortgages
  • Investment properties
  • Businesses
  • Where and what you spend
  • Travel
  • Ethnicity (no New Zealander option)
  • Charities you support
  • Occupation

One wonders about the IQ of who might fill out such detail. Potential Liarbour voters, no doubt. As ever, looking for that prize of another handout from the taxpayers of this country.

Although, I have filled mine in. And it gets posted back today, via their freepost.

No IQ test taken. It just says in big black felt pen "STOP WASTING MY TAXES".

High on ambition, zilch on credibility in sign on

Climate change is happening faster than anyone expected

Yeah, its getting colder.

These losers have signed onto the Gorebull delusion.

Differences in philosophy

Fresh off the wire:

I asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up.

She said she wanted to be Prime Minister of New Zealand some day.

Both of her parents, Labour supporters, were standing there, so I asked

"If you were Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."

Her parents beamed, and said, "Welcome to the Labour Party!"

"Wow...what a worthy goal!" I told her.

I continued, "But you don't have to wait until you're Prime Minister to
do that. You can come over to my house, mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep
my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store
where the homeless guy hangs out. You can give him the $50 to use toward
food and a new house."

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in
the eye and asked,

"Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can
just pay him the $50?"

I smiled and said, "Welcome to the National Party."

Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

Doing the work of the Lord

Build and launch the package with the unions

In the above statement lies the crux of the left's absolute hatred of privatisation.

The left's divine ideological causes are promoted via their mass media organisations, the unions. Same reason unions get funded to teach 'elf 'n safety.

Opposition thinks it is still the government

After the Government blocked an inquiry into banks, Labour, the Greens and the Progressives have decided to hold their own one.

Just a wee reminder for Labour, you lost in November and someone else is running the show.
It will be an inquiry into the relationship between the official cash rate and short term interest rates, in the context of matters raised by the finance and expenditure committee in its report on the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's financial stability report.
All parties would be invited to participate as well as organisations and businesses, including banks.

A kangaroo court more like it.
This is a serious inquiry by parliamentarians on behalf of New Zealanders. We believe it is appropriate support, including a venue, is made available, so that the public and media can attend.

Eh? The opposition does not set up such inquiries. An inquisition into the corrupt and fraudulent dealings of Labour over the last decade would be more valuable. Unfortunately that will not happen either. All politicians are painted with the same gutter tar.

And once the interest rates drop, I suppose you'll want a dole handout to top up the loss in interest for those in Kiwislaver and other deposits?

Dead rat at the chemist

A trip to the bakers should not be a trip to the chemist.

Cancelled, for the time being.

HT Pic flogged from here.

Nuts to IL-33

Bet most would not have heard of that molecule, but someday knowledge of it may save your life.

And how might that happen, you ask? Apparently 1 in 70 or worse children in the UK are at risk.
The researchers found that patients who had anaphylaxis during surgery had higher levels of an immune hormone called IL-33 in their body.

Seems this molecule amplifies inflammatory reactions in us humans. Particularly those that might cause anaphylactic shock like those that result from eating nuts or taking certain drugs.

In our study we found that the severity of the shock is linked to the IL-33 molecule which acts as an amplifier to the inflammatory reaction.

This can lead to a fatal constriction of the airway and, ultimately, death.

Scottish researchers found the link and says that in the future by controlling the IL-33 molecule via a ST2 treatment, the reaction severity will be lessened.

Good news indeed.

Ex MP practices dark arts of hand reading in court

You've written your own script on your left hand so you can lie to us when you're giving evidence.

Field said he had not known that.

Naivety he suggests as an ex-Liarbour MP is snaptured by the beak actively reading from hand written notes on his palm.
If it were permissible, a witness would be able to bring notes to court, and you have seen that's not allowed.

The beak reminds him that others cannot bring notes into court, a fact of which he was aware. The examination continues further.
Come on, Mr Field. Can you not answer a straight question with a straight answer?

An ex-legislator with many practised years in the trough continuing to flout the law with half-arsed devious replies I'd suggest.

The depths to which MP's descend never cease to astound me. This one is in the headlights. Pity some more weren't. I could think of two more that definitely should be. One works for NZ Post, the other has swanned off to the UN.

Redlining the cultural cringe meter

Fresh from the eco-dinosaur Mayor wasting oodles of ratepayer taxes on unnecessary polls actively resisting Rodney Hide's Supercity steamroller, the eco-city is now into the noo religion of sustainability.

  • We're looking at how we can sustain our culture - how we can sustain every aspect of being Maori.
  • ... the first of three nights where cultural experts, academics, politicians and performers will examine how traditional knowledge fits into the modern world.
  • Speakers include Maori lawyer Annette Sykes, ... and Tainui leader Tuku Morgan.
  • It's a new year, it's a new vision and for us there's no better time to be talking about sustainability.

Say no more, the cultural cringe meter has redlined and wrapped the needle around the upper stop labelled Male Bovine Excrement.

God help me and you as ratepayers.

Pimping for pieces of meat eight

Questionable, but legal .
They screen customers at the door, charge much higher rates than other brothels and employ only "smart, attractive" girls."We don't treat them like pieces of meat."

If he thought funding was already tight for his Olympic bid, watch it dry up completely as do-gooders and feminazis rip into this enterprising business.

I suspect his selection odds have just flown out the door.

Union losers crying foul over forced unemployment

The Mitre10 orange barn in the Palmerston North has changed hands recently.

Upon the takeover a select few were given DCMs, effective immediately. They were escorted from the premises as security cleared their lockers. At the time a couple of weeks ago I thought great, must be the in house unionised getting their marching orders, although the story in the MW Standard at the time did not say anything about that.

At least eight staff who turned up for work on June 26 were called to the Palmerston North store's management office and told they were being made redundant.

The only explanation was that a condition of the sale of the store to the Kovaleski family was that some jobs would no longer be required.

Seems I was right about being the site unionised. They are now crying foul and stirring the pot trying to get their jobs reinstated. I say good on the previous owner for having the guts to fire the losers. Expect to see a picket line of the feral unwashed unemployed sometime soon when the expected mediation fails, or better still, does not occur.

"The Kovaleski family will be working in the store and will bring a level of business acumen and the spirit ... that is required in these challenging economic times."

Stuff that say the new owners. Their view is obviously that workers wasting their day on union matters is not on in these recessionary times. Rightly so, never in my book.

I congratulate PN Mitre 10 on their newly found level of business acumen and spirit.
Pity a whole lot of other companies do not change hands to excise unionists.

"When you steal or take something that isn't rightfully yours"

Notice has been given with the above statement of perceived entitlement.

Mr Laws discusses the options.

And a resurgent Winnie is about to enter the fray. On, I would suggest, a very strong policy. Just the catalyst he has been awaiting. As ever, a shrewd player. We have not seen the last of WRP.

Still such a play will serve the Nats well. They can shovel all the aggro and cries of racism the F&S debate will bring onto Winston. Winnie is well rested and as a seasoned player, no doubt ready to take on all comers on that score. The losers will be both National and Labour.

Bollocks to the headline statement.

It was never proven to be rightfully theirs in the first place. Only in their wildest dreams.

As is said, this is going to be bigger than Ben Hur. Gentlemen, Start your engines!

No rise in hamburger fees

Sheep and beef farmers have indicated their opposition to any significant increase in the levies they pay to Meat & Wool New Zealand.

Farmers are unequivocally telling Meat and Wool NZ to stick their long desired rise in levies and questioning their value.

MWNZ supposedly supports the meat industry. Things like marketing and industry good. It has huge financial reserves, but continues to push for a levy increase. Dairy farmers are being very vocal about the levies they have to stump up. What for? Their cull cows do not require special marketing, going straight to the works for hamburgers.

I wonder if the suits will listen?

Was it good for you?

I wonder how long before the taxpayer is yet again dragged to the table to renegotiate another 'just and durable' settlement?

Sealord, now Treelord. Te News suggested that it was unlikely there would be a bigger buyout. I suspect Coastlord will outstrip everything. Yet to come, watch this space.

So another $285 million of your hard earned taxes and over half a billion dollars of assets blown to salve your conscience.

Was it good for you?

Here we go

Not content with ceding the NZ coastline, The Nats are about to handover the Super City to unelected representation.
This is the first time a special Maori subcommittee has ever been established in this way

All in the name of democracy. Unelected representation based on race that is. Mirroring the questionable seats based on colour that exist in a parallel world in central government.

Where will this madness stop?

The stench of rotten fish

"She feels the political fallout around Richard Worth has been sufficient and going through the courts would have been an additional ordeal that would have gained little."

Scab lifted

The festering sore has been exposed to daylight. As predicted, the contents are not pretty as Iwi/Kiwi bubbles to the surface with the detritus.

Unfortunately, in the pursuit of politics Key now has unbottled the genie. The review has been conducted as promised. End of story.

I say leave it there with our coasts, beaches, water column and seabed in the public domain under Crown control. Set in concrete, in law, zero compensation to any entity.

Mayor trying to hijack smacking referendum

Mr Williams said the anti-smacking referendum was a golden opportunity to seek public endorsement of the Super City. "It can't be too difficult or expensive to print off another ballot paper to drop into the same envelopes being sent out to Auckland voters."

Get over yourself. The smacking referendum is not for local government dictators to hijack. The precedent on such matters has already been set by your ex-Dear Leader.

And I would wager $19000 to spend on a useless survey to counter the Super City was not in Rodney District Council's LTCCP. Stop wasting ratepayers taxes.

The sooner these troughers are excised from mine and your rates the better.
