LIMITED BLOGGING "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

over the next ten days as I'm in Tauranga, Hamilton and Wellington doing 'Gods work'.

But let's suppose that on Saturday (UK time) Jeremy Corbyn is reelected as leader of the UK Labour Party.    What then the odds that by the following Monday morning there will be a new 'New Labour Party' comprising many of the 172 MPs and MEPs who publicly threw their support behind Owen Smith?

I mean to say with 'operatives' in Corbyn's office drawing up lists of MPs seen as antagonistic to Corbyn and the likelihood they will be targeted by Momentum in an organized takeover of their constituency organizations what have they got to lose ... done one way and dusted the other.    

Interesting times ahead.     However I can confirm there is no truth to the rumor that Lord Egbut has
been practicing Seppuku.

p.s.   How about this taster on the BBC website.

Colin Craig and the significance of a jury trial "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Apparently we haven’t had a jury trial in a civil matter for the last 14 years. It is generally well known that if you have a civil matter, and you force 12 people into a court room for over a month, you’re likely to be punished for it. So why on earth did Jordan Williams […]

Colin Craig cross examined about the interview he had with himself about himself "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Readers may remember that Mr Craig published a booklet where he had an interview.  In this interview, he played three roles.  The interviewer, the person being interviewed, and the person the interviewer and interviewee spoke about. All three of them being Mr Craig, of course. Craig as Interviewer: “Colin Craig is not in office.” Craig […]

Labour, Wellington Mayoralty, and Bogus polling 101 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Last week, days after Little’s bogus poll rant, Labour released a survey that had their besieged candidate Justin Lester on 34 with Nick Leggett and Jo Coughlan tied on 17. This was, to say the least, a total outlier — but the Dominion Post breathlessly went with it anyway. I’ve seen several actual polls of […]

Marborough Council: Killing the messenger and starting a witch hunt "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Marlborough’s Mayor has called in lawyers over a leaked recording of a confidential council meeting earlier this year, which has been made public via a right-wing blog. Alistair Sowman said he was sickened by the action and councillors were horrified a colleague potentially leaked it. The closed meeting was about finances surrounding the troubled ASB […]

The health gestapo are still using tax payers money to mess around in the lives of law abiding people and interfere with law abiding legal companies.

What’s in a name?

The bomb, which was planted in or […]

Ministry for Vulnerable Children? How about Kids with Shit Parents? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Don’t call New Zealand’s rebranded government agency the Ministry for Vulnerable Children. Don’t label our kids. It’s not helpful. Here’s why. Like any clinical psychologist, I see daily the impact of negative childhood labels on adults. Beliefs they picked up as kids: I’m stupid; I’m fat; I’m ugly; I’m unlovable have a nasty habit of […]

UN KNOWS WHATS IMPORTANT, THAT'S NICE. "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

While madmen toss homosexual men from second story buildings or strangle them at the end of a rope from a crane, while equally bereft of understanding women mutilate genitals of young girls, while other moronic learned elders of a religion fifteen hundred years old and almost unchanged since a power crazed sexual deviant  founder started killing, maiming, and enslaving his people, the good old UN is "concerned at the title chosen to replace CYFS in lil ole peaceable nu ziland".

Mind your own freakin business and perhaps search out some actual harm delivery state sponsored systems in places it appears are in a too hard basket.

The helpless little waifs and strays that come with the dross welfare delivers and are seriously at risk in the thinking of most citizens of our nation has led to the choice of the new drive to possibly reduce the killing and maiming of the poor wee buggers that make the news all too often and if they are not vulnerable, vunrable or whatever then the UN morons need to go to Specsavers.

Does the Marlborough Express realise that explaining is losing? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

The Marlbourgh Express doesn’t seem to know the first rule of politics. Explaining is losing. They rushed out an article last night after they were shamed into covering the duplicity of John Leggett. They had had the same story for well over a week but did nothing with it, instead, they decided to focus on dirty […]

Is this the way forward for Andrew? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Andrew Little can’t retain staff. Press secretaries and his Chief of Staff have all left or been given the arse card. It seems Jeremy Corbyn has the same issue.

EXCLUSIVE: David Seymour’s thoughts on Islamic Immigration "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

  With overseas terror attacks and mass migration of un-vetted refugees into Europe, many people are concerned about the connection between Islam and terrorism, along with the social unrest that can accompany large-scale migration.  While New Zealand has been relatively insulated it would be incredibly naive to think we are immune to the challenges faced […]

Dodgy theatre, dodgy council, dodgy media…why did no one act? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

After we busted John Leggett and the Marlborough Express tried to ignore the story there still remain a number of unanswered questions that I am sure the ratepayers of Marlborough wants answers to. For a start, let’s examine this “world class” theatre malarky. The council and the backers of the theatre must seriously think that the […]

Despicable Me. As predicted the Marlborough Express ignores the issues and attacks me "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

As predicted yesterday the Marlborough Express has written an attack piece on me. They didn’t even call for comment. Political skulduggery has again rocked the council chamber in Marlborough as lawyers are called in to investigate a secret recording of a committee meeting leaked to a right-wing blog. The leak to Whale Oil could see heads roll at the council, as […]

IT'S NOT THAT SIMPLE, SIMPLE. "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

I understand that it is often politics but Sepeloni's crusade one morning last week on the reduced benefits for solo mothers who refuse to disclose the sire of her spawn is just not good enough.

Yes it could be argued that a drop of around twenty five dollars a week for such actions will impact on the children but there are other compelling reasons for the disclosure and not just making the sire responsible for the costs of raising the results of his desire, to avoid his obligations is but one.

One of the big issues resulting from much more widespread adoption regimes that preceded the massive welfare cash injection currently seen as a solution for unplanned, unwanted  or worse, offspring created for supposed cash reward, was not having easy access to biological parent records seen as a disadvantage in modern medical practise.

Yesterday in conversation with a good bastarnd who is watching his life's partner descend into the abyss that is alzheimers, is the progression of considering there are suggestions that it is heritable with a possible genetic interruption to protect some as yet apparently unaffected.  A recent heralded possible treatment to put the development of this modern scourge that has manifested in part due to many enjoying longer life from the tremendous advances in coronary, vascular and cancer treatments that allow other afflictions to present.
With solo mothers declining to divulge the sire then half the potential genetic mapping is hidden and with much at stake in health and its expanding costs, that trumps whatever reason for non disclosure might offer.

When added to the financial burden on taxpayers from the conscious decision hide a sire's identity it becomes imminently more sensible to "reward" those who choose or find themselves relying on a benefit for whatever reason and comply with a reasonable request for the sire of a child to be identified.

To suggest there may be valid reasons for non disclosure is not credible and  typical of the welfare love affair that seems to be part and parcel of socialist thinking.

Now Mexico wants to build a wall…to stop ratbags from Central America "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

I REST MY CASE ! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Over a month ago I proclaimed my refusal to be included in the circle jerk in Rio as I considered it to be too often merely a quadrennial chemists convention where guinea pigs in laboratory conditions are used in an ongoing experiment where chemists compete with rule creators.

This morning it is reported that the Afro American who produced a personal best with her final throw/ put of over a metre better than any previous effort to defeat Valerie Adams for gold in the women's shot put, was competing under a dispensation that permitted her to use three drugs on the banned list at the Rio Olympics that she had previously been denied permission to use.
Two asthma drugs and a steroid.

How does that sit with the traditional Olympic ideal that seeks pure endeavour to attain fastest, highest, bla de blah.

Contrast that apparent  " rort"  with the highly proven efforts of those suffering injuries and disabilities to achieve such inspirational outcomes at the Para-Olympics.

In closing I am another who fiercely supports the New Zealand double amputee, Liam Malone, who handed belated justice that seemed beyond the South African judicial system to deliver for Reeva Steenkamp by obliterating  reference to her killer in the record books in a magnificent effort with sprinting on springs that replace his lower legs.

SUE MARONEY AT IT AGAIN "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Sue Maroney is a drone MP.   Failed six times to win an electorate seat; found wanting as Chief Whip and dumped and well remembered for an unfortunate incident when, during the flag referendum debate, she opened up on the owner of a holiday home flying the Kyle Lockwood flag as a rich prick flaunting his/her wealth and prejudices and conveniently ignoring the fact that her holiday home was just down the road.    At least her erstwhile leader called her out on that.

And now per courtesy of TV1 News last night there she was out pimping for a refugee couple wanting to purchase their HCNZ home but finding the value of the property had increased to the point is was supposedly unaffordable for them.  

So Maroney, ever eager to get her face on TV, is prepared to parade her hypocrisy for all to see.   Point #1 Sue ... thought your once great Party was opposed to the sell-off of HCNZ stock per se so why are you going into bat for them and #2 given that I've listened to the angry one and his side-kick Twyford bang on about the government selling HCNZ properties at below the market valuation how can you possibly promote this as a shock, horror story?

Guess the side-bar to this is why TV1 News thought the story was worth giving oxygen to.    Here we have a family properly housed and paying a below market rental for that privilege ... a property I guess any number of people would give their back teeth for.   So they can't afford to buy it ... I can't afford to buy the property just down the road from me with elevated 270 degrees looking out over the BoI.

Sue Maroney hypocrite and TV1 an accessory to hypocrisy ... fits.
