Sunday General Debate


Our Deep Throat whistleblower at the Standard sent us this photo.  Apparently, it is The Standard’s Master Console, and lprent Lynn Prentice The Guy With The Girl’s Name only ever leaves it to get another organic root beer from his solar powered fridge, or to put out another bowl of Soy Milk for his cat.

Welcome to Sunday.  Novopay, Novopay, Novopay.  It’s like catnip for wanna-be journalists.  Nobody wants to tell us how things were under Datacom (“the same”), because that wouldn’t be a story, would it?

Anyway, as per usual, this post is all yours.  Use it wisely.

    “Apparently it is the standard’s master console”, priceless! lol lol. And the stuff in the bottom goes out to the useful idiots.

    Great to see John Hatfeilds scumbag of a mother getting her scrawny old rack in a twist because she has been arse card from Waitangi this year.
    Sounds like the local iwi have had a gutsfull of the first family of hate and all they stand for.
    Best thing Key could do would be to actually grow a pair, not unlike the pair Helen had, and tell the locals when they sort “Brown Rentamob” out I’ll be back, and take all the government representatives and their money with him, then we would see how unified the tribes actually were.

    • blokeintakapuna

      Or just leave it up to the locals to fund the celebrations themselves… Then we’d all see who gets a legitimate invite… And who are the unwanted, renta-mob bully boys looking for a soap box to grandstand upon…. That the tv cameras swarm to like flies around horseshit.

      That white mother fucker who “leads” the mana party will be there but he claimed on TV it depends on the day if he will or won’t protest. In other words, depends on what mummy wants and those that pull his puppet strings want for the mouth piece… But he’s too full of himself to realise he’s only a small pawn in a larger game he doesn’t even realise he’s being played.

        Wonder if we get a guest appearance from Kim Dot Con, after all whilst he isn’t brown he’s fat and good at getting other peoples money, two the criteria to succeed in maoridom.

        • Gazzaw

          Dotcom would have been a big hit a couple of hundred years ago at a tribal gathering. Enough to feed the whole family!

        Is that where all of the “house niggers” will all go on Wednesday?

      Waitangi wank fest..cant wait..not

      • Gazzaw

        You’re right starboard. I look forward to Waitangi Day about as much as I do a wet Good Friday. I avoid the local news at all costs cos it’s all focussed on ‘celebrations’ that 90% of the population doesn’t give a flying fuck about. What makes me really sad is when I see other countries really celebrating their nationhood on their National Days – Australia, the USA, Norway, Singapore et al. Massive fireworks displays, parades, street parties. And just what do we get? The same old rerun at Waitangi with the same old faces and the same boring old format. We should just change the name to New Zealand Day, decide on a new date when there really is something to celebrate & consign Waitangi Day and the TOW to the rubbish bin of history.

      More breathless reporting from the guardians of the message, without these bastions of the truth we the uneducated, wouldn’t be able to leave the safety of our homes.

  • Pete George

    Coincidentally someone posted an insight into Datacomm and Novopay at The Standard (there’s some worthwhile comment amongst the noise and lprent lectures).

    In the old system Datacomm essentially hand-held school administrators and massaged all the data into the system. This was of course reasonably labour-intensive (read …expensive) and was behind the original, not unrealistic intention to migrate to a new system that was much cheaper to operate.

    ‘Labour-intensive’ is symonomous with ‘human error’. I’ve worked a lot with payroll systems and know this from experience. Accurate data provision and collection, accuracy of entry and a detailed knowledge of awards, tax and deduction law and annual and other leave law are required and are often insufficient. So errors in payrolls are very common.

    A view on Novopay, Talent2 and Datacomm

    • Gazzaw

      You’re probably quite correct Pete. A school that I have a business association with has had no problem with Novopay BUT they have a very good school administrator. Her comments were that it has been a bit of extra work for her but that wasn’t unexpected and that a lot of the problems are of the “garbage in, garbage out” variety. That isnt a message that the unions want to hear or that the MSM want to disseminate. Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.

  • blazer

    great to see Penny Bright still sticking to her guns re paying her Auckland City rates.Her point is valid…explain where they go and I will pay them.No chance of that…usual excuse ‘commercial sensitivitry’…read- we wont expose corporate cronyist contracts,consultancies …what a gravy train!.

    • blokeintakapuna

      She’s so misunderstood too. All those nasty people picking on her and her crusade to fight the good fight for the Chardonnay socialists.. At least down at the “occupy”movement they understand that sometimes hypocrisy and double standards are required to have everyone else pay for her way with how the world should work.

    • Travis Poulson

      In that case, the council should cut off all her services since she doesn’t want to pay for them. That point is valid too. Can’t have it both ways.

      • blazer

        you tell me why they cant breakdown where those rates are spent?

        • Travis Poulson

          0.5 cents here, 2 cents there, 1 cent over there…..starting to get the drift? And if she’s so concerned, why doesn’t she use the OIA?

        • She is a bludger pure and simple, cut off her services..she doesn’t pay for them, she is freeloading

          • Gazzaw

            I’m thinking that she’s spent the arrears and just hasn’t hasn’t got the dosh to pay up. Treat her like any other debtor & start proceedings.

          • blazer

            she offers to pay…what about integrity,transparency,accountability?

        • Pissedoffyouth

          I’m interested in seeing what the rates are spent on, but we already know – pools/free babysitting for South Auckland, and some art shit

    • pukakidon

      Penny not very bright is a blight on society. The council needs to take her to court and then send the Head Hunters around to collect the debt.

  • Spiker
  • ConwayCaptain

    Apparently her “Maori ” name is a maorification of the Egyptian name Nefertiti so her real name is Nefertiti Hatfield. Sooner the cuzzie bros up north realise that their hate filled system gets them nowhere.

    • Gazzaw

      Probably the first case of SFNS.

  • Pissedoffyouth

    “For a long time, living in a state house and working in a factory
    was a badge of honour. If you did a hard day’s work you deserved to live
    in a good house and live a life of dignity,” said Salesa, whose father
    was a factory worker with Fisher and Paykel.
    “Being poor in New Zealand, the first thing you don’t get is dignity.”

    What a load of horse shit

  • Hazards001

    Is there anyone that didn’t already know this?

    We’re being ripped off on our electricity charges….REALLY?

    “A spokesman for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment said there was evidence that competition has increased in New Zealand.”

    That’s like saying there’s competion between the fuel companies

    Hansen said, “It isn’t obvious to the authority that there is any value in comparing NZ electricity prices with other countries. From an electricity perspective, New Zealand is an island.”

    What a load of crap. We have an abundance of cheap renewable hydro generation available, what we need is to start using it and put the Green Taliban back in their caves where they belong.
    And the Nats sole piece of policy is hardly going to do anymore for the average kiwi except see another round of increases in price.

    • blokeintakapuna

      The trouble with all renewables is that none of it is capable being able to stand alone without backup generation. The base load is too high and although renewables are great to a certain extent… They simply aren’t capable of providing enough energy for our base load needs.

      • Hazards001

        Not quite sure where you’re coming from there bloke. All I’m saying is the rivers continue to flow, so bang a few dams in them.(as the old ones are starting to crap out) In the bigger scheme of things hydro is relatively cheap, compared to good for nothing wind farms and solar energy anyway. Personally I’d like to see a nuclear power plant but we know that’s never going to happen.

    • Pissedoffyouth

      Greens: Complain about the price of power, don’t support putting dams in to lower the price.

      Gotta love em.
