Te Tiriti And The Turtle

Image
No story I have ever seen better represents the madness of pandering to Maori by virtue of wokeness in New Zealand than this. Based on responses to several Official Information Act requests, plus earlier media reports, the Taxpayers' Union can set out the timeline: In March 2019, a dead leatherback turtle is found on the shore in Banks Peninsula. He is never named though he is known at the Taxpayers' Union as Michelangelo. DOC advises Te Papa that the local Banks Peninsula marae, Koukourārata, has provided approval for Te Papa to receive turtle. A DOC ranger uses a tractor to transfer the turtle to the back of his ute, then commissions a truck belonging to a pet food company to keep the turtle chilled. The ranger warns that transporting the turtle to Wellington will be a "logistical nightmare". The ranger's wage costs are $200. The turtle is collected by Te Papa from the Department of Conservation office in Christchurch and driven up to Wellington in Te Papa’s Toy

The Mis-representation of Hong Kong Continues - Stuff Fake News

  Really? New Zealanders in Hong Kong are packing up their lives and heading home, driven by concerns about ongoing restrictions on speech, political activities and the city’s residents - as well as Covid-19. Lucy Craymer reports. Really? Blabla.........Craymer then finds examples of two families that would have left Hong Kong anyway.  The society estimates there are around 30,000 New Zealand citizens or residents living in the city. The estimate is based on the number of Australians living in the city who, unlike New Zealanders, have to register. The Consulate-General says there are 3000 New Zealanders resident there “and considerably more when including dual nationals on New Zealand passports”. Right, this doesn't make any sense.  3,000 I would accept but 30,000 hell no.  Australians? Maybe. “It wasn’t safe,” she says. “It still isn’t safe. You can’t speak freely about the things that you believe in in Hong Kong anymore.” Newsflash - In Hong Kong since the handover it has never

Lucky public servants who still have jobs after $100b of money printing, are crying out in unison. The National Party.  Their response?  You are joking? Teachers, nurses and Police Officers don't even vote for National.  Their unions hate National.  These people are not going to leave their professions.  Why? There is nowhere else to go.  They are not going to leave for Australia.  Why? Because they won't.  They can get more money there right now and they are not leaving.  Covid saw a Police actually close off their recruitment as they had so many applicants. “It’s totally unacceptable that the Government has now signalled that their pay will be frozen for three years and it has had an immediate impact on pay negotiations for our police officers. Only it is not really.  It is just freezing the bands in their pay.  As they progress and are promoted they get pay rises.  It is disingenuous to call this really a freeze if they are moving up the pay scales as these workers will be w

Hell HAS Frozen Over - Public Sector's Turn To Share The Suffering

Unbelievable, yes this is a headline in New Zealand.  Public Service Minister Chris Hipkins said any increases would be targeted to lower-paid public servants, largely those earning below $60,000, who account for about 25 per cent of the public sector. Those earning between that and $100,000 could expect increases only in "exceptional circumstances". "We want to see those on lower wages be the focus of any increases in pay. "This is about prioritising spending. The policy will also help protect jobs by taking financial pressure off the public wage bill." The PSA, which represents almost 80,000 workers, said they felt "betrayed". Rather than feeling betrayed, the PSA should be feeling lucky.   During Covid they should have all had their pay frozen and jobs slashed as $10b was printed in the insane experiment we now call Robbonomics. The private sector has been decimated in parts while the public sector stayed on the covid couch. The deification of nurs

Extremist Maori Activist Throws Race Grenade - Shocked When It Goes Off

  Oh dear lord butter would not melt would it: She said the way National had latched on to the report, labelling it "separatist" and "segregationist", was "really disappointing" and " nothing more than pure politics ". "The very issue the leader is trying to attract attention to is a Declaration she, her Cabinet, signed up to, and now is trying to politicise for nothing more than pure politics . "I think New Zealand is at a point in politics where we have moved beyond this. The author of this report (even someone of no cynicism should see  she was awarded cash by commies years ago to start this work ) comes from an adult lifetime of extremist international political indigenous activism sponsored by the UN and the taxpayer via teaching positions. She attempts to spin that she is suddenly shocked when for the first time in her middle class colonised life, people have lined up to dare point out that what she has produced is a load of word

Getting Your "Big Girls" Pants On

Poor Kiri Allan has been having a hard time of it lately battling cancer. In politicising this with her friends linking her story to health access and race issues, she then copped some abuse directed at her online by mainly men who should behave better even if they feel provoked.  Allan posted some of those comments, to prove presumably what we already know - people when online make rude comments. However somehow Newshub managed to draw in other groups into a piece of clickbait for our viewing pleasure.   Of course all about race, because that is what their clickbait peddles.  What followed I have trouble believing: Selah Hart, chief executive of Auckland-based Māori public health group Hāpai Te Hauora, told The Hui on Monday the poor treatment Māori women receive makes it less likely they'll go back, even if it's for something critical. Even little things like names being pronounced incorrectly can erode trust in the health system. "When you take a step back and you unde

Good to see both former PM's looking after themselves in retirement.   New Bentley for John-John and Helen-Helen .....hmmmmm.....a move from Eden Park to Central Park? Speaking of Helen, how is the Covid-19 independent review going on?   As an aside isn't this a spectacular photo of equality? Equal height.
