      Site Issues Forced Upgrade   08/01/2017

      Hi I was forced to do an emergency upgrade to RaceCafe as we were suffering extended outages.  Everything seems OK now.  You will see a few visual issues with colours etc but I we get round to fixing those over the next few days.  The main priority was to get things up and running again. Cheers Admin

  1. Election facts

    https://www.budget.govt.nz/budget/2017/family-incomes-calculator/index.htm See if you can squeeze any more out using this.
  2. Election facts

    Unfortunately Hesi, racing can't survive when the country is in recession due to Labour's inept front bench. Jacinda needs 3 more years to line up her team, they are a terrible rabble who have proven they are not ready to run a country yet by the total lack of preparedness for this election with policy. Though knowing labour they will have gone through 2 more leaders before the next election.
  3. For the "INSIDER"

    There are plenty of flaws with MMP, the main one being that as a whole we haven't grasped it all that well. Some electorates have, check out Napier & Ohariu in both cases party vote clearly for National. National should have encouraged a few seats to party vote for ACT & then they wouldn't be in this situation. Looking back over since MMP was introduced its delivered a mostly stable Govt, far far better than Australia's, so can't be too bad I guess.
  4. For the "INSIDER"

    Not sure where you get that they want change, was resoundingly clear to me they want status quo.
  5. Gareth Morgan

    is this guy seriously the biggest cock in the country. How the fark can anyone take this looney seriously, just confirmed it tonight that he is a raver.
  6. Watch and Bet

    its a pain in the arse for sure, restart your PC or do what I have done and have it playing on the Ipad.
  7. Jacinda Ardern

    & Paddy Gower is not? Paddy is so far up the lefts arse that he almost disappears.
  8. Vote National thread

    Bang on Jess, there are some seriously up families having kids without a care in the world for them. Some of them are not fit to look after a dog, least of all 5 kids. The kids are in and out of school and are destined to repeat the cycle & some bloody how its the Govt's fault.
  9. Vote National thread

    No one minds helping people genuinely out when struggling or in dire need, many who are trotted out as being from poverty circles are victims of themselves. They have shit loads of kids and expect Joe taxpayer to fund them living in South Auckland. Many of them haven't worked in years & often are unemployable. Funded sterilisations and job skills training would be far better than giving them money to get out of poverty (which never works). Yep its a terrible generalisation, but unfortunately your red mob encourages that thinking when they show a single mum with 7 kids & claim she lives in poverty. Its enough to give any poor bastard the shits who has worked 60hrs during a week & paid buckets of taxes to see it funding that.

    https://newrepublic.com/article/121970/slow-decline-sport-kings Has very significant parallels to us.

    It's a complex issue Tom and certainly not confined to NZ. Google up Racing in Decline, you will find multiple stories from the States & UK on it and to a lesser degree Australia. Common themes come through though. 1) Sports betting more appealing to young people 2) Poor leadership and Govermental administration 3) Animal welfare
  13. Interest rates have been at historical low levels for a while now, come Sunday week & the country has elected Lab/Greens watch the wind move out of the Economic sail & the dollar drop. Its a serious worry that Jacinda has created a vote for change for no other reason than change, a change from what?. One of the best periods of economic & infrastructural development in the countries history, whilst juggling the GFC & massive economically crippling EQ's, yet we are in surplus and finally looking to reward everyone with tax cuts. Labour's response is to kill incentive with taxes & create a catch phrase of "Let's do this" with zero maps of how she's going to do it or even what or when. The scary prospect of what concessions will they allow to the Greens with some of the loons in that team. This thankfully will be a 3yr failed experiment and with luck we will come out of it with minor damage.

    Good for you Richie, but its a bloody insult to punters. The track and fairness of the racing is disgraceful. Almost every horse leading turning, has won, its a farce.
  15. Ruakaka

    NZ Racing can you please next season stop subjecting us to this shit. The racing is so so bad from this track that its not funny. Stop racing there and realign the turn to give more than the leader a chance or just stop racing there.
