  1. I find it curious that you would expect them to be transferred to a South Island venue. 1 There was no South Island horse in either the Wellington Hurdles nor the Wellington Steeplechase. 2 The added cost to owners etc of transporting them South 3 The races need to be run asap as not to disrupt the racing programme of the horses. 4. The next South Island meeting is listed for Oamaru Sunday 25 July where don't have jumps racing. and the next SI meeting being 7 August the first day of the Grand National meeting. 5 By going to Hastings on Thursday this allows the races
  2. Sincere condolences. Thoughts are with you at this sad time.
  3. A Masterclass in Propaganda By Dr Muriel Newman “It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” President Abraham Lincoln When Jacinda Ardern took office in 2017, she promised her government would be the most open and transparent New Zealand had seen. In her first formal speech to Parliament she pledged: “This government will foster a more open and democratic society. It wil
  4. Jacinda Ardern’s ‘Nuclear Free Moment’ Is Covered in Coal Dust By JC Jacinda Ardern is big on virtue signaling, and none is bigger than her fanciful grandstanding about climate change. During the 2017 election she said that her father knew about the effects of climate change – he’d seen them in Kiribati – and during her campaign launch speech in Auckland, Ardern called climate change “my generation’s nuclear free moment“. Well, that “moment” is now covered under a mountain of coal dust: Image credit The BFD. Yet again the Prime Minister’s rhetor
  5. This Government promised to be open and transparent, but it is an artfully-crafted mirage. By Andrea Vance From the moment she took office in 2017, Jacinda Ardern promised her government would be the most open and transparent New Zealand has seen. In her first formal speech to Parliament she pledged: “This government will foster a more open and democratic society. It will strengthen transparency around official information.” Since then the numbers of faceless communications specialists have skyrocketed. The Government’s iron grip on the control of information has tightened.
  6. Is Jacinda Ardern The Most Divisive Politician Ever? By Graham Adams NZ News · Ardern’s gamble on shutting down the “white privilege” debate June 1 2021 The Prime Minister’s denials that the topic forms part of the school curriculum are puzzling. Graham Adams tries to make sense of her tactics. Jacinda Ardern has offered herself as a hostage to fortune by repea

  8. The fight for New Zealand is now underway One country, two governments Amy Brooke In spite of government opposition, a radical report proposing destroying New Zealand’s democracy, unintelligibly called He Puapua (let’s not give it an English title, or people may begin to wonder what is in it) has been released, because of an appeal under the Official Information Act (OIA). A previous, heavily redacted version was finally released but only as a result of constant pressure. He Puapua argues for this country to be predominantly governed by individuals of part-Maori ancest
  9. Hey guys. What about taking your arguments to another thread where it is more appropriate. This one is about the useless and dangerous Ardern and her Government. Thank you.
  10. Mike's Minute: Who does Labour really represent? Surely even Grant Robertson and Jacinda Ardern can see that emergency meetings with unions who are ropeable with you, isn't really how you should be spending your day? The unions are Labour and Labour are the unions. Andrew Little got to be Leader ahead of Robertson because he got the union vote, the biggest donors to the party are the unions. And yet, for reasons they still haven't been able to explain that make any sense, it's all turned to crap. It's a pay freeze, then it's not a pay freeze. Our economy is doing better
  11. Mike's Minute: What are the govt's plans with He Puapua? MIKE HOSKING BREAKFAST Play Video Evidence trumps denial. That's where I am at this morning with He Puapua. This week has seen the presence of this report and its potential go from something dismissed as a bit of race baiting, little more than a discussion document loved by National written by an academic
  12. Darkening Clouds of Totalitarianism April 18, 2021 By Dr Muriel Newman “Totalitarianism: form of government that theoretically permits no individual freedom and that seeks to subordinate all aspects of individual life to the authority of the state.” – Encyclopaedia Britannica Under Jacinda Ardern’s stewardship, New Zealand is becoming a totalitarian state. Another giant leap down that path was announced last week in the form of a Cabinet paper outlining plans to criminalise free speech. But before we examine the detail, let’s remind ourselves of tw
  13. Graham Adams: Ardern in the Gun over He Puapua A Covert 20-Year Plan to Establish Maori Sovereignty Is Political Dynamite. Graham Adams Argues It Represents a Real Threat to the Prime Minister’s Reputation as Open and Transparent. Judith Collins made no effort to hide the cat-with-the-cream expression on her face when she answered journalists’ questions after a National Party meeting in Auckland on Saturday. She had just delivered a speech that rolled a grenade under Jacinda Ardern — with an apparent confidence that it would go off with an almighty bang and cause an awful
  14. National, Labour and He Puapua By Michael Bassett At last some discussion about He Puapua. The document has been hatched in secret at the behest of the Labour Government and it had to be prized out of Te Puni Kokiri recently using the Official Information Act. Commissioned by Nanaia Mahuta, He Puapua was written by nine people, most of them with European surnames. It is a plan to introduce racial segregation into every aspect of our public service. It would divide our society into Maori who form 16% of the populati
  15. When is the media going to let the sheep know the shepherd isn’t on their side. Labour traditionally enjoys an easier ride from the media, the reality is that those that gravitate to media jobs are typically left leaning. There have been plenty of studies that show this is the case both in New Zealand and abroad. There are some that argue the direction a journo’s voting habits lie, doesn’t mean they are a left leaning commentator. This may be true to a certain degree. A professional will do their best to avoid letting their bias show. But at the end of the day, no
