  1. Trouble at Trough. It was revealed today that a new trough will need to be constructed at a public cost of $345 million. A spokesman for the construction company doing the build, a Mr Hone Haraworry, said that the old trough was only 30 metres long and could no longer accommodate the huge numbers now slurping from it. That aside, it was obvious that the old nails holding it together had been sucked out due to the massive suction forces bearing down on the old timbers. Huge snouts had now deformed those same timbers and some of the gravy had spilled out onto the ground where “some o
  2. Barry Soper: Labour denying democratic rights of ratepayers with Māori ward move Jacinda Ardern and Nanaia Mahuta. (Photo / NZ Herald) This was a sleight of hand by Labour. The party should have campaigned on Māori wards for the country's councils during the last election. Just after the landslide they declared their hand on what is a significant change that shouldn't be underestimated. They’re removing the ratepayers’ right to instigate a binding referendum if they can drum up the support of five percent of their fellow voters to get it up and runni

  4. No Dignity or Honesty in Parliament Profile Over Proficiency, Exposure Over Expediency and Dishonesty Over Ethics By George I’m starting to wonder what the hell is going on! We have a Government which has total control of Parliament with the power to immediately close down any debate that may expose its dishonesty, deceit or just plain incompetence. It has a Speaker whose lack of impartiality demonstrates just how contaminated the environment has become. When Ardern was asked by Collins, “Was it misleading for the Government to tell Kiwis we’re at the front of the qu
  5. Barry Soper: Failure to hold Trevor Mallard to account shows Labour's hypocrisy Jacinda Ardern preaches about it time and again: How we should all be kind to each other and to look after our wellbeing. Well, the Prime Minister's just lost all moral authority to preach to us about niceness, because on that score she's failed miserably - and so have her Labour sheep in Parliament. You just had to hear them bleating in Parliament's debating chamber as National's Chris Bishop attempted against all odds to move a vote of no confidence in Speaker Trevor Mallard. It was against all
  6. He wouldn't be disqualified weighing in above the horses's carded weight but would be for weighing in light ie under the carded weight.
  7. My understanding Shane is set weights 55kgs for males and 53kgs for females for the race. So if they hadn't had penalties added for those group wins that's what they would have carried. Polzeath goes up 2kgs for the G2 win so carries 57kgs and Concert Hall up 3kgs for the G1 win to 56kg Cheers
  8. And you dealt to them in those highweights RT
  9. Correct. Don't know why they weren't in this instance.
  10. A Labour Government of 65 Non Achievers By JC We are approximately three months into the second term of a Labour Government and already their list of non-achievements is mounting up. They are showing themselves up to be what they are, a group who are very good at doing the talking but pretty abysmal at doing the walking. There is a case that can be made that this is a new government but in reality that doesn’t hold a lot of water. It is the same bunch of no-hopers with the addition of some more useless add-ons. All they had to do was pick up where they left off. Of
  11. Beauden was the top weighted horse at 60kgs prior to acceptances.
  12. Serena won the Telegraph in 1967 also Gubes. She carried 7 stone 2lb and a quarter and was ridden by David Peake in 1967. I saw her win the race in 1968 when ridden by Bill Skelton when she carried 9 stone 3lb that year (my first time at Trentham). Bill rode the double that day winning the Cup on Loofah.
  13. Palamos wont be starting.
  14. A compulsive obfuscator and consummate, incorrigible liar is our prime minister, we all know that, but Monday’s effort on the Mallard debacle was gold-medal standard, truly world-class, a masterpiece in mendacity. She hit the truth out of the park. Bravo PM! Listen from 07:25 Interviewed on Red Radio’s Morning Report by Suzy Ferguson, ostensibly about the Ihumatao land-grab, Ferguson changed furrow to dig into the Speaker’s self-serving hot potato rules-change (actually ‘Speakers Directions’) issue. Ferguson: “Cost to the taxpayer fairly high on all of this and

    Watch Labour Duck Its Responsibility with Mallard By JC It is now apparent that the very person who is supposed to uphold the dignity of Parliament and the safety of those working within its corridors has proven himself to be totally unfit for the position. In my previous article I set out the backgrounds of those MP’s elected to Parliament in 2020. On the left one would be hard pushed to find a more ragtag bunch of misfits. It now seems with the Mallard screwup to deal with they are, in all probability, about to show their true colours. Their hypocrisy and double standards will
  16. There was one black fly sitting on the wall. No, this isn’t the penultimate verse of a lengthy song beginning ‘There were a thousand black flies sitting on the wall’, but a statement of fact. The wall in question was in the office of Grunt Robbingson, Minister of Sausage Rolls, Financial Destruction and Money Printing, and the fly mentioned was no ordinary fly, but my very own Spyfly device, which was already recording the activity in the room. My intelligence sources on the cleaning staff had informed me that Justinda Ardeau, the Queen of Covid was on her way to one of her regular informal ch
  17. Nothing suspected Miss Jools. I can confirm Chelsea's collarbone is indeed broken.
  18. Mike's Minute: Government's Covid response a shambles Turns out the Covid cluster we really need to be worried about is called the government cluster. Yet again last week they overreacted, yet again they cost business millions, and yet again we find out that what they said was happening and what was actually happening are two completely different things. Having closed downtown Auckland, it became fairly obvious at seven o'clock Friday morning when we talked to Chris Hipkins that the shutting down of the economic engine of the country was not required, and that the poor girl at th
  19. NZ’s COVID Comedy By JC- November 12, Covid in this country has become a comedy on so many fronts. It’s a comedy primarily because there are a bunch of clowns trying to run it. From the get-go these idiots haven’t had a clue how to handle it. What has let this ship of fools off the hook, and what has given the appearance that they know what they are doing, is nothing to do with their capabilities but everything to do with our geographical position on the planet. I suppose we have to thank Maui for fishing up the North Island where he di
  20. TICKETS SOLD AND ENTRY TO THE NZ CUP MEETING TO BE HELD ON SATURDAY 7, WEDNESDAY 11 AND SATURDAY 14 NOVEMBER 2020 AT RICCARTON PARK RACECOURSE (‘THE RACECOURSE’) ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS: • The Canterbury Jockey Club Incorporated (‘CJC’) reserves the right to refuse entry. • No person under the age of 18 years will be admitted to the racecourse on NZ Cup Day. • Intoxicated people will be refused entry. Random breath testing may apply. •
  21. A lot of that did happen. It was obvious that Labour would have the largest majority going into this election. The "biggest danger" to the country was that they NEEDED the Greens to form a government. MMP creates strategic voting and by giving Labour your party vote to ensure they could govern alone and thereby taking power away from the mad Greens was a positive vote this election. Thus the tail cannot wag the dog.
  22. And if the socialist gets back in then the country has lost.
