There Comes A Time In Every Relationship

Where a woman has to stand up and say no to a man taking a proverbial dump in the bed and expecting her to lie on it.  
It says more about a woman if she stays in that relationship at all pretending the male is ok, than kicking the retard to touch passing on his bullshit, lies and promises to another woman so she can be treated with similar disdain.

I think Cindy and Shane have finally reached that point of no return.

Shane Jones might think his "AR-15" rifle (if that is what it really is because Asia is notorious for overselling what you are firing) photos posted by Dot his wife and PR advisor do not matter and is "no reflection on Cabinet position" but it is.  Fine, do what you want on holidays privately but this make no mistake was a public display of "f*** you little woman".

It says everything about his Cabinet position.

It shows he has absolutely zero respect for a woman in charge trying to do her best to portray an image to New Zealand that she has …

Stop Sending Your Kids To University!

What should be concluded from the last few weeks of news media is that University is not the place for some teenagers.

There is nothing wrong with this.  There are plenty of other things for 18 year olds to do.  However if they cannot make it into the big world independently yet, for god's sake keep them at home until they can rather than send them off unprepared.
If your child is struggling mentally with life before they leave school and go off to University, being an 18 year old especially in a halls of residence living away from home sure as hell is the last place you send them.
You might have contracted out parenting for five or seven days a week to boarding school, but University is completely different.  They are not special.  They will not be babysat. Everyone at University is just a cold hard ID number and other than taking your money, there is not enough man-hours for staff to care much who passes and fails. 
If your child only "just" managed to get good enough …

Elton Loves Clarke

The answer was in reply to a question from model and actor Cara Delevingne, who asked the award-winning singer/song writer if he could be one woman alive and one woman from the past, who would you be?
In an interview with the Guardian – which featured a Q&A section with A-list celebrities – John said Ardern was "one of the few politicians that I respect and love".
Followed by 
"She was ****ing talented and brilliant, (b) she was beautiful, (c) she had a lot of sex, and (d) she had the most fantastic jewellery," he said.
Gosh - look out Clarke, Uncle Elton is coming for you!

Comments like this from celebrities are not helping Ardern brush off the part-time Prime Minister jibes and the electorate are fast tiring at her lack of performance back in New Zealand and celebrity attention seeking new liberal luvvies after the enforced absence, put out to pasture  retirement of Hillary Clinton.   The Nobel Prize cut-off time rules meant that she was not a contender for thi…

Local Body Elections - Random Impertinent Questions

1. Why is the Auckland centre right so useless? They have lost four local government elections on the trot! What or who are they missing to fix things?
2. The guy who took Labour to one of its biggest ever losses in central government had one of the biggest wins ever for the Auckland Mayoralty - should Bill English should run for Auckland Mayor?
3. Who is tasked with sitting down with the plethora of tired councillors (Christine Fletcher) and failed centre right candidates (Mark Thomas) and telling them not to bother next time?
4. Are the rates rises, congestion fees, petroleum taxes and fee increases coming Auckland’s way a small price to pay for not having John Tamihere in charge?
5. Is Tenby Powell proof that it is possible to get elected if you are rich, cunning, even slightly dashing, ambitious and hard working?
6. Is Andy Foster proof that it is possible to get elected if you have a well funded campaign, a useless incumbent and promises to fix issues that resonate with the publ…

Congratulations To Abiy Ahmed Ethiopian Dictator

Abiy Ahmed, the prime minister of Ethiopia, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, for his work in restarting peace talks with neighboring Eritrea, ending a long stalemate between the two countries.
Not quite sure how someone can actually win a Peace Prize when millions of people within his own nation have been displaced since his election.  Our Prime Minister has not achieved that.  He freed the press into Ethiopia yet doesn't exactly have an open relationship with them and ethnic unrest proves peace does not begin at home.
Even The Guardian thinks he is a bit of a see you next Tuesday.
More than a million Ethiopians were forced from their homes by ethnic violence in 2018 – the highest number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) of any country last year. The worst of it took place in the south, where an estimated 800,000 mostly ethnic Gedeos fled the district of West Guji in Oromia, the country’s largest region. This is a higher number, and over a shorter period of …

A Review of The Reviews, Or Inquiry Into the Inquiries? UPDATE

I have posted on a few inquiries happening currently.  It is not hard to conclude currently we have a growth industry in them for QC's and retired Judges in New Zealand so I did a check as to where they are at with the Kangaroo Courts.

1. Mason Pendrous 
This one was about the poor kid who was not found in his room at a Canterbury University hostel.  As time has gone on we have learned it was only four weeks he was missing for so that was #fakenews. New Zealand's Slowest Judge Kit Toogood is running this and after period of quiet the stepfather of Pendrous Anthony Holland has come out publicly.  It looks shocking for the University so far and Holland has suggested he was contacted and still is for unpaid bills!
"I just feel a bit frustrated that nobody, either at the university or at CLV chose after four or five weeks to chase him up. To find out why he'd not been to lectures, to find out why he'd not eaten. Oh and that Holland seems to have cottoned on that it is…

NZ First Makes It Easier To Parent Dump

When I applied for Hong Kong permanent residency many years ago, I had to prove not only that I was self-supporting but that my parents and family were not all going to rush to come to Hong Kong. 
Considering they all have a massively better lifestyle in New Zealand this was the easiest part of the interview and took five seconds to answer as I burst out laughing and the Officer moved on to the next question.  It is of course made for those from "poorer" countries with limited welfare from coming to Hong Kong to lumber the taxpayers with net-non providers.  Or Mainlanders.
In other words - the Chinese do this themselves!

National ditched the parent category dumping immigration laws that allowed immigrants to bring in their parents, leave them in New Zealand to sponge off the New Zealand taxpayer and then run off wherever they liked.
It must have been fabulous to have a reason the mother-in-law could not tag along behind you.  Now they are ruining one of the main attractions…
