Fire out of control in Far North? - Update 2

 Things must be going pear shaped in the Far North fire near Cape Reinga.  You wouldn't know that via the MSM, a cursory report yesterday.

This morning 3x choppers are headed from Jafaland, one went overhead a few minutes ago directly northward at low altitude.  The other two are still mid-Northland.  Also the FENZ brass must be out for an early morning jolly to the Far North - a plane is landing as we speak at Kaitaia airport as I write.

And as is usual for Flightradar, once north of the Mangamukas, low altitude planes in the area cannot been seen due to radar blind spots from Auckland Airport.

Update: Plane has landed, more choppers now northward.

Update 2: Airspace in upper Northland is busy - another 2x are airborne northward from the cultural backwater just off SH1 with crime-ridden deserted streets that is Whangarei.  Normally there would be about half a dozen planes all day in these parts transiting through the area so any increased air traffic is noticeable.

Luvvies art centre on life support via your rates

An art luvvies boondoggle that has cost umpteen millions sucks large in the trough on the ratepayers teat.

Barely open a year, it has had a ratepayers cash injection this week to stave off bankruptcy.  Bankruptcy this year, they'll be back next year for more.  How's your rates increases?

Culture in Whangarei, a backwater on SH1?  Piss off!

Observation of the day: Far North - Kaikohe

Today I had to venture into Kaikohe for some business and in between, whilst killing time, managed a pleasant walk in the sun along the maindrag.  First time on foot in the town in a couple of years - Covid and all that - you'd catch something with all those gangs / ferals around doing Mr Plod's job in the early days with their illegal roadblocks.

The town is terminal.  Shuttered shops everywhere, businesses that are barely open look like they're one foot in the grave.  Most present poorly, at the minimum being in dire need of a coat of paint / waterblast / weeding.    Covid killed this town.  A couple of necessary gas stations, cafes and dairies seem to be doing OK and the resident council is still fleecing ratepayers with zero road maintenance in the area.

The growth business that is very noticeable are the multiple 'gyms' complete with their blacked out doors and windows with the odd noisy flash / showy motorcycle outside.  Complete with well kept suitably flash signage to maybe entice the local nephews off the couch.  However I'd suspect that little gym workout would actually occur except for 'training' in the errands of the day.

The other growth industry is in WINZ type of offshoots no doubt ever ready to dispense mine and your hard-earnt taxpayer dollar to the less well off.  Judging by the number of the hoardings on the main drag, ex NZ First MP "Tugger' Jones must have splashed a wad of the $3bn cash around these agencies a couple of years ago.  BTW, the Shane Jones Waipapa roundabout over Keri way works great, especially the western exit road.   Attempts at vote buying for his home turf failed for him, only to end up with a utterly useless and invisible Labour MP - the one independent Matt King is trying to displace this year - two shows.  

As I said, this town is terminal.  One day I might venture to the murder capital of the Far North on the northern slopes of the Mangamukas.  Haven't been there since a couple of weeks before the SH1 road closed over 18 months ago.  Like Kaikohe, I'd expect a similar outcome.  Their lifeline to the outside world is even worse, a tenuous link is still just open via SH10.  Dodged a bullet with rain from ex-tropical cyclone Gabrielle, but one decent rain event and everything will be permanently cutoff.

At least Kerikeri appears to be still open for business.

Poor? Work harder!


An MP tells the poor like it is. A work ethic that would gain my vote.

Meanwhile in our antipodean world, the noble savages in our realm have been wasting their time playing dressup with warpaint for entertainment through dance in the hallowed grounds of Helen's backyard.  I'd guess most are on the hard-earnt taxpayer dollar in some form or other.

A truancy officer could have rich pickings here.  And in the same vein as the UK MP, some of the 'working' poor at the same event upon investigation might need to work longer hours.

Labour-Lite drinking Kool-Aid by the gallon

National MP Maureen Pugh was "waiting for evidence" that humans caused climate change

That MP predictably has flip-flopped and is being re-educated as we read.

And the head-honcho, Chris from Marketing, as long suspected, has supped from the climate-change Kool-Aid pitcher.

More reasons to never ever vote for Labour-Lite.

Meanwhile in the real world,  New Zealanders get on with the clean up from some particularly nasty and tragic weather.  

Tropical cyclones dropping in are an overdue but expected annual weather event during December to April in New Zealand.  Not so in the fear-porn of climate-changed ravaged eh-oh-tea-rower.

How is the charge on your EV???

 Thank God for fossil fuels. 

I'd wager a few EV owners now rue the day they brought into that scam.  The smug must quickly disappear as their electric chariots fail to reliably climb for safety from the waterlogged deep night darkness of an unfolding catastrophe. 

It is nice to see that all my fossil fuelled engines are still functioning as required three days in without power.  And will continue whilst power is off, sometimes almost underwater.

So many caught out by a total lack of preparedness and layers of alternative for life without power.  No alternatives on hand like filled fuel containers, filled gas bottles, wood ready to go in the wood shed,  generators tested along with charged batteries for devices.

Many lessons might possibly be learnt, but will they be heeded?

Labour about to restart Dawn Raids?

New Zealand’s new Prime Minister has agreed to look at an overstayer petition that was launched by Pacific community leaders almost three years ago.

The petition calls for pathways to residency to be established for Pasifika overstayers under compassion grounds.

Doesn't the law say an overstayer? - deport them.  Similarly, aiding and abetting / harbouring an overstayer? - lock them up.

An easily decided binary decision if ever there was one.  Once again, as recently proven by that woman lieing  (or was it lying? - probably both) under the mat in the southern regions of Jafaland, I wouldn't hold my breath for this government to abide by the law as written for me but not thee.  

Bring on the Dawn Raids 2.0.

The last day of a tyrant

In my views and others, a tyrant by any measure.  

Some use the word 'Tyrant' liberally along other perfectly valid descriptions for 'That Woman'.

Apparently not so for National.  MP Brownlee has profusely grovelled in apologetic manner.  Stick a fork in the Natz, they're done.

Anyway, today is the last day of our tyrant.  

She hands her cards of failure into the Governor General, His Majesty's representative in the sovereign colony of  New Zealand.

Some might be further tempted to say 'Ding Dong...'.

Paying the ferryman

 The listed Norwegian shipping company Havila has banned electric, hybrid and hydrogen cars from its ferries. After a risk analysis, it was concluded that the risk to the safety of the shipping fleet was too great. If a car catches fire, the fire can no longer be extinguished. [That’s why firefighters are starting to refuse to go near accident sites where electric cars are involved, or try to find a towing service that will tow them to the scrap-yard afterwards, and that scrap-yard owner is most likely going to refuse to accept that car in any case. They are unstable bombs on wheels.

How do you make the most money? Well, from the stupidity of the others, of course!

Everyone who didn’t pay attention in physics or forgot that our battery technology is over a hundred years old, with only minimal improvements, will soon have a lot of “joy” with their electric cars. Such a battery does not last more than five to seven years if you’re lucky, and it hasn’t burned out already in the meantime. Total loss in both cases. No sympathy for those self-righteous imbeciles who let themselves be burned again because they buy into each and every mainstream narrative that is been placed before them.

and from a comment

I can see home-owners insurance having a rider voiding the policy if an electric vehicle is garaged at the house. Just like my home-owner’s policy is void in the event of a nuclear explosion, even if accidental.

eBikes, only have 10-20 pounds of this highly spontaneous ignition chemical compounds…

and they want cars with 1,000-2,000 pounds of batteries in our houses/ garages….

Your move Chris ...

What a difference a day makes.  

Apparently the heir presumptive boy, one Chris H, looking to fondle the poisoned cup recently ditched by Winston's mare as being to hot to handle might move the party toward the centre.  Away from ultra-woke co-governance and the coven of racists desiring looking to inflict their misguided tribalist sovereignty on New Zealand.

Hopefully such a move will cause the other Chris, the NINO leader of LabourLite to rethink his non-strategy of garnering votes. Continued fence sitting chasing votes in the centre will not get you elected as Chippy reclaims that area.

Your move Chris.  For God's sake get some real policy.

Another PM of NZ bites the dust.

The polls in the kitchen are obviously warm.

After having wrecked New Zealand's economy, given the country to the tribalists another Prime Minister of New Zealand has bit the dust and thankfully is resigning.

Unfortunately there is something wrong with New Zealand society when most potential replacements to take the helm till October will be selected from a coven of queers and racists.  Anyone up for Queen Mahuta of the Aotearoan Republic?  It is the final solution in the co-governance and sovereignty.

Mind you, the ones on offer as the opposition are fence sitters mostly of a similar ilk, ever ready to sell their soul and principles for your vote.

How timely both major parties are in Napier this weekend - they might as well be at a singular conference for The Unity Party.

Good riddance!
