    The rest of the world is waking up. The globalists are being taken apart in recent elections across the globe. Let's hope the public here wake up also.

    N.Z Racing

    Following the abandonment of Sunday’s meeting at Te Awamutu NZTR advises that the Waipa RC will bring forward planned remedial work on the track. NZTR held extensive discussions with the club officials and the RIU, while the track, in particular the section where Gingee fell on Sunday, was also subject to inspection. Both the raceday video and post-event inspection of the track were inconclusive as to whether the fall was due to track inconsistency. This was the fourth race meeting from past seven programmed at the Te Awamutu track to be abandoned and has resulted in the decision being made to bring forward the planned club-funded work originally scheduled for October. While the track will be open for training purposes NZTR advises it will be closed for racing and alternative venues sought for the club’s scheduled trial and race dates. A decision around a return to racing and trialling at Te Awamutu will be made by NZTR upon completion of work on the track and consultation with the NZ Trainers’ Association and NZ Jockeys’ Association.

    Bloke loves these: Mike Hosking: The Government's big issue - can it tell the truth or hold a line? The tricky thing with the teachers' deal is it's hard to call it a loss, given it isn't. Especially if you're a teacher: for teachers it's a big and good win. Because $90,000 as a maximum base is a good wage in anyone's book, and I doubt there are many of us that would begrudge that. Most of us seem to agree teachers, by and large, are underpaid and overworked. Not all, of course, and that's the bit that some of us struggle with. I'd happily pay the good teachers $150,000 because they're worth it; the same way some aren't worth the $90,000 because the attitude is wrong and the skills are lacking. But that's unionism for you. All for one and one for all, and it's also a big win for them. It is a reinforcement that placards and strikes work. Which is why the Government's role in this is the part that is a very poor loss. They went into this particular leg of industrial unrest having created a reputation of being soft, they, in opposition, had built up expectation, and when they arrived in office, in came the claims. And most of them have been met. There have been very large wage rises handed out, and as a result the next in line feel emboldened, and up go the numbers. Chris Hipkins said a very large number of times $1.2 billion was it. He said it to me personally, when I asked him whether, hand on heart, that was true. He said it was. Turns out it wasn't. Which is the part that damages him and his Government. Yes, negotiations are about positions and standing your ground, but only if you stand your ground. This Government are known as soft touches who can be bullied into submission. There was some suggestion at the weekend that this was a good move by the Government, that Hipkins showed his skill and worth as one of Cabinet's top players. What tosh. He wrote a cheque using our money. That's not skill, that's caving, folding, buckling, giving up, and acquiescing. Any industrial dispute ever started is always wrapped up with money. Adding more money isn't a skill, especially adding other peoples' money. In excess of a quarter of a billion dollars is a sop to make a headache go away, and any one of us could have done that. So the unions know what? Make enough noise and the prize is yours. When they say final offer, it isn't. When they say there is no more, that's not true. Strikes work, and this lot are soft. Yes, you've got to happy for the teachers. But we now have a major issue over the Government's ability to tell the truth, hold a line, show backbone, and be good guardians of our money.

    Yes. They are looking at going back to having Freeview. Next year I thought he said the Sky contract expires.

    Leaked memo on proposed hate crime legislation by John Black The following was found in the men’s restroom of a Wellington Massage Parlour by a lady…of my acquaintance. TOP SECRET MEMO FOR GREEN PARTY MEMBERS ONLY. TOPICS: HATE CRIME PROPOSALS AND HOW TO GET GLUTEN-FREE VEGAN SOY-SUBSTITUTE SAUSAGE ROLLS SERVED IN BELLAMYS Ki Ora, Talofa, Namaste, Ni-hao, Salaam Alaikum and Helloooooo! (the recently adopted official greeting of our gay brothers and sisters. The Green Party leadership is issuing this memo to confirm the matters discussed at our recent meeting. First our apologies for the grim tone of the presentation on climate change entitled, ‘We are all totally F*%#ED’. A reminder to all members that we must not become too disheartened by the impending destruction of mother earth by evil mankind (not women-kind or trans-kind, they aren’t responsible). We have therefore postponed the mass protest suicides planned for the steps of parliament. They will now take place next year concurrent with the re-election of Donald Trump, weather permitting. Concrete proposals to fight climate change were adopted: The Spokesperson for Energy and Resources will halve his classic car collection. All cow anuses will be fitted with catalytic converters. The Minister for Climate Change will begin a nationwide campaign to conserve electricity by encouraging people to make love with the lights off. Special thanks to the minister’s wife for suggesting the idea. The need for Hate Crime Legislation was discussed due to the devastating, unprovoked and outrageous attacks on our comrade, Golriz Ghahraman. And that Christchurch thing. Members agreed to draft a bill: Guaranteeing vulnerable minorities like Maori, Muslims, LGBTQAFs and highly paid human rights lawyers protection from nasty comments by anonymous losers on the internet. Acknowledging Women are just as strong and capable as men by giving them extra special legal protection from having their feelings hurt when discussing things on the internet. Defending trans-rights by classing trans-women as women, unless they were born women and transitioning to men, or still identify as men because they like the way they look in a pair of Stubbies and trans-men as men unless they can’t lift 60kg and pee standing up. Non-binary people will be protected by allowing them to choose their own name, age and period of history they would most like to live in. If members are confused, please see the 32-page document and special diagram drawn up by the spokesperson for Rainbow Issues. Penalties suggested for transgressing the above included three hours in a room alone with the Minister for Climate Change listening to him speak on climate change or having the job of fixing the catalytic converters to the cows. Members also agreed that Police time and resources should be reprioritized as follows. People being mean to people on the internet Practicing their dance steps on the police float for next year’s Hero parade. Murder, rape, burglary etc. The spokesperson for youth affairs wished to remind everyone that love always triumphs over hate. Unless hate has better weapons and snazzier uniforms. Like the Nazis or the Empire in the first part of Star Wars, yeah the Empire really kicked ass, did anyone see The Last Jedi? I did but I didn’t really get the ending, was Luke like a ghost or what? She then pulled up her hoody and went to sleep in the corner. The leadership thank her for providing the meeting with her homemade chocolate brownies. We’re still working on the sausage thing but there is a five-hour meeting planned next week to really hash it out. Thanks, comrades. THE GREEN LEADERSHIP (This leaked memo is a work of fiction and is satirical.)

    The good old days

    Gubes, well done on your win with your horse Porshabelle in the first race at Waipa today. Showed more toe than a Roman soldier again and managed to hold them out today. Congrats.

    The three clubs Waikato/Cambridge and Waipa,to the best of my knowledge, are undertaking a feasibility study into the "Greenfields" project. You wouldn't expect any final decision to be made without due diligence being undertaken first.

    Mrs Cubes gets grumpy with the TAB

    I think that you can send it in to the Head Office for payment Cubes. Ring the Help Desk.

    More bull%$^% from the NZRB...

    As my account was set up years ago so I thought I would ring the help desk just to check about this and they confirmed everything was fine and I don't have to do anything (so no wonder I haven't received anything). Perhaps this requirement is for new accounts?

    More bull%$^% from the NZRB...

    Do I gather from this that want to get every single current TAB account holder to supply an ID photo to them so you can continue to use your TAB account even though you went through this process of proving identity when you originally opened it up. Firstly, have they contacted every account directly? I certainly haven't had anything from them. If they fail to contact me and close my account they can get F*%#ed. It will stay closed. How many accounts will be lost through all this BS....

    The worst government in 25 years by Christie We say on this blog all the time, that this government would be in a lot more trouble if it did not have a very compliant media. Most of the media in this country let the government off the hook: from the Young Labour camp scandal to the Karel Sroubek case, the Derek Handley fiasco to more recently the biased speaker. Then there was the Treasury hack that wasn’t, and Trevor Mallard claiming that a parliamentary staffer was a rapist when all he did was give a colleague a hug. Staffers, ministers and the speaker himself would have fallen on their swords – with a little assistance – under the last government, but now there is no accountability. We simply do not have the media baying for blood at each transgression like we did with the last government. Well, maybe the worm is starting to turn. Duncan Garner has attacked the government, saying that this is the least effective government for the last 25 years. I won’t argue with that. Maybe, or maybe not, but we have nowhere for them to live, of course. Whether these immigrants are in the skilled migrant category or not, they are still not going to make the housing crisis any better. I doubt if he has to worry too much. There is a cabinet reshuffle on the horizon, but as the talent pool for this government is as shallow as the proverbial car park puddle, I doubt if there is anyone better. That is the really sad thing in all of this. I am really not sure that Winston will get away with this again. He has raged on about immigration for decades, but for most of that time, he has either been in opposition, or a junior coalition partner. This time, he is the deputy prime minister and is clearly pulling a lot of strings. That he has not stemmed the flow of immigrants, while not significantly increasing the number of skilled migrants, is something he may have to address in the next campaign. Duncan Garner is scathing. Here is how he sums up the efforts so far of this ‘transformational government’. Totally agree, Duncan. And it is not only in immigration that they are failing.

    RIP Lord Arthur

    Euthanised following the fall in the Queensland Derby. He was absolutely poleaxed and brought down at the 350m. Someone is going to get a long holiday for causing the fall I hope. Lovely horse who was a half brother to Bonneval.
