A new party needs to be created now: Part two

Guest Post:


Suggested principles that would attract a broad spectrum of voters:

1. Move towards smaller government

Fewer bureaucrats = less money wasted so reduce the size of the bureaucracy. Simplify the tax laws.

2. All New Zealanders to be equal under the law and only one NZ law for all.

No religious ‘laws’ and only citizens may vote. Have a binding referendum on abolishing historic Maori special seats: they are now unneeded as Maori genes are extremely widely spread in our population. Cease giving money undemocratically to Maori elites. Money given to tribal elites is undemocratic. We live in a democracy, not a tribal culture.

3.Protecting the environment.

Protecting our environment by vigilantly working with farmers and businesses to control toxins; increase our marine reserves. Repeal the RMA. Examine the many business blocks in the so businesses can start prospering again while still looking after our environment. Start fast-tracking more hydro-electricity dams.

4. More focus on law and order

Reorganise and re-focus the police force on areas of their work like burglary. Stop harassment of legal gun owners. ‘Castle law’ Encourage NZ citizens to defend themselves with equal force against personal attackers.

5. Education

Start by paying for results.Measured by examining the pupils’ progress. Schools have to cease allowing students to end their education completely uneducated unable to read and write. Return to national standards and encourage the charter school approach that works so well for some students. Increasing literacy rate from the abysmal levels we have now is vital.

6.More emphasis on cars and roading infrastructure

Free up of traffic which will give enormous real savings for businesses and individuals’ time and wasted fuel. Speed up roading construction nationally.Get traffic moving again in Auckland, Wellington and ChChimmediate action removal of all cycleways that have taken away car lanes from roads. Return two lanes on all roundabouts; look to improve how traffic lights interact to speed up traffic. Reduce frequency of suburban trains with few passengers and restore direct bus routes. Make all T3 lanes T2. Stop Dominion Rd. light rail project which will roadblock that part of Auckland.

7. Support and help ‘refugees’ in their own countries

Cease taking refugees from UN, support them so that they can remain domiciled in their own country like Japan does. Select only those immigrants who will integrate and contribute to the economy. Rein in family reunification numbers.Make all serious crime committed by refugees a deportable offence without any “special” mitigating factors. No consideration about what ‘might’ happen when they return to their home country.

8. Drug test those who receive welfare

Just as workers have to comply, drug tests should apply to welfare recipients. People who want to live in state houses shouldn’t be able to select the towns they are housed in.Too many state houses are empty because of this. Persons damaging state housing by smoking P in them to be relocated to another empty state house in another town; no more usage of motels to suit them; recidivist P users should be accommodated in new specially built accommodation that is can be cheaply cleaned of P.

9. Modify NZ’s stance on the Paris Accord

Save 14 Billion dollars and look after New Zealanders first. The science is far from settled, CO2 computer models are very flawed; CO2 not a pollutant but is an essential plant food. More CO2 = more phytoplankton means more carbon sequestration… Methane, 35% of our emissions, is part of a cycle and should not be included in any carbon equation. Use some of the saved money to study agricultural methods of carbon sequestration which could be applied to help other countries.

10.Strengthen our armed forces

Boost funding to armed forces as they have a large very useful role in national disasters as shown recently by assisting in the fuel line problem. Make the navy effective again and start confiscating and selling pirate fishing boats.This party would attract over 5% of the voters if the leader is strong enough to withstand the attacks that would come from the left-biased MSM. It is said that we can’t start a new party from scratch but we have to as it’s the only way using MMP rules to get back the control of government benches.

I am sure that people would step forward who have been deeply involved with the political back scenes in the say National party to get things going. The 2020 election cannot be won by keeping on blindly loyally voting National as the diagram below shows. If we don’t want to live in a dysfunctional ‘nanny state’ republic things have to evolve quickly on the ‘right’. I am willing to put money where my mouth is; let us step up to the plate.

A new party needs to be created now: Part one

Guest Post:

How did we end up with the present coalition?

New Zealand’s MMP system was set up to ensure that large groups of voters would be ruled over by small groups of voters in small parties as the diagram of the last election below shows.

Therefore the only way to use MMP for the furtherance of our views is to form a strong stable support party that will aid National as the Green party supports Labour, and keep National on track.

Prayers please for the Ministry of Truth

Guest Post:

All prayers this morning, please, directed to the toilers and drones at The Ministry of Truth who worked so long and so hard overnight, expunging at the memory hole, and must now, surely, be weary and worthy of rest.

Less than ten hours ago NZyounglabour’s facebook displayed a post from February 13th speaking of summer school and happiness and bliss:


The poster cheerfully added several photographs showing aspects of the little event, yet now there is nothing, all the photos, in fact the entire post; gone. What is this?

Lunatic labelling takes grandiose to new levels.

Guest Post: By Brian Rogers

Some articles are timeless and can be enjoyed even years after they were first published. With Brian’s blessing, we revisit, ‘Lunatic labelling takes grandiose to new levels.’

Society’s headlong plunge into PC lunacy continues. The signs are all there. Literally. On the side of the road.

A few years ago, astute Sun readers pointed out the ridiculous “Pavement Rehabilitation” which we think means “road works”. Now the whole country is sliding down the slippery slopes of lunatic labelling.
We don’t have rubbish dumps any more. Not even refuse sites. We instead have a proliferation of fancy named places such as ‘transfer stations’.
Where in the name ‘transfer station’ does it suggest that’s where we dispose of our rubbish? It sounds more like somewhere you drop grandma off after a weekend visit.
Even even feels the need to explain – to assure residents they’re not taking their rubbish to a bus station.

Dear Mr Hipkins

Guest Post:

Dear Mr Hipkins,

Thank you for your belated reply to my correspondence (dated 8 February 2018).

I must admit to being disappointed and frustrated that you seem to have failed to appreciate the value, benefits and cost-effectiveness of the Partnership Schools Kura Hourua model. Have you actually visited any of these schools with an open mind?

As I pointed out in my previous letter, the public education system, which I have funded as a taxpayer for 50 years, has been failing to educate a sector of students who have the right to have what you state is your goal of “every child has the opportunity to succeed”.

Will the census actually measure anything?

Guest Post

With all the noise about a housing crisis and the mass shortage of housing in New Zealand, I find it intriguing that the latest Census of Population and Dwellings appears to have completely abandoned trying to determine just how many dwellings there are now in New Zealand.

In 2006, to raise some spending money for an overseas trip I took on some part-time work, delivering, and then collecting, census forms.  The process, that involved thousands of man hours across the country, saw individual workers visiting every driveway within their given area and determining if there was a dwelling.  For each dwelling, there was a form and then for each person who was residing at that dwelling on census night, there was an additional individual form.    Read more »

Amazon and Netflix will kill SkyTV and it is all SkyTV’s fault

Guest post

I purchased a new TV earlier this year. It’s 55″, 4k and has an Android TV operating system. It cost me $899. I got it home and plugged it into both the internet and my Freeview antennae. Five minutes later I was watching Redbull coverage of the Dakar Rally streaming for free through the app. I will write a digital UX design post on all the things the Redbull TV app has done wonderfully right, but that’s for another day.

Today I’ll tell you why my TV, and its app ecosystem of international giants like Amazon and Netflix, will kill SkyTV. I’ll also tell you why it’s SkyTV’s fault, not market forces, and what they could have done about it, starting last week.

Here’s another case of jumping on the bandwagon!

Riding on the coat-tails of the #metoo movement and the scandalous Russell McVeagh allegations, comes an attack on Otago University law school with a tired narrative.

I’m talking about the second-year law camp: a highlight of law school and something that those hopeful first years look forward to if they make it into second year.

The University of Otago is under scrutiny amid claims of jelly wrestling and naked drinking games at boozy camps for student lawyers — attended by at least one senior staff member.

The camp for second year students has been held for the last 10 years and this year’s event is due to take place next weekend.

Magic Mirror

Magic mirror

Guest post:

It had been months since Taxarella had her last audience with the Magic Mirror, so it was quite the delightful surprise when she found the entrance to the Magical bathroom once again. Hoping to find a message on the mirror’s surface to recite so she could receive some more wisdom, Taxarella couldn’t hold back and let out a youth-adjacent giggle discovering this new message…

“Mirror Mirror decorated with stuff,

Please advise me now I’m up the duff!”

And with that, the large, ornate Magic Mirror shimmered briefly before seeming to come to life offering wisdom, “Why hello again Taxarella… or should I call you Prime Minister?”

“It’s Jacinda actually… I’m just a farm girl from Morrinsville…”

“Zip it sweetie… don’t mention that too much… you’re not doing that town’s reputation any favours. The Labour party policies have bashed farmers and rural communities enough already… and I won’t even start with the hurt you lot are deliberately inflicting on students and parents who want to maintain a democratic choice with their children’s education.
