  1. Reality 1

    The unexpected tragic events that Jacinda Arden has had to deal with since becoming PM once again have her excellent diplomatic abilities and communication skills called on.

    • Blade 1.1

      Jacinda is a political mediocrity. But when it comes to fronting a crisis she has no peers. She is also blessed with situations that allow her to put her best foot forward. The Christchurch Massacre. Covid and now walking into a ready made crisis in the US.

      However, when US politicians ask Jacinda for advice on gun control, my temper starts to fray.

      As I understand it, police allowed a nut to obtain guns without doing due diligence on his application for a firearm license. Jacinda and Labour then did a knee jerk reaction and confiscated all semis owned by legal gun owners. She should be the last person to ask about gun control because she knows nothing.

      Meanwhile on the streets of NZ…

      • mickysavage 1.1.1

        If guiding us through the biggest health crisis in a century with distinction is mediocrity I would hate to see what is good.

        • Blade 1.1.1.1

          Yes, she deserves some credit for that. But I think she lost her way towards the end. That is just my opinion. Many would disagree. I watch in wonderment as things just fall into place for her. Even a Newshub reporter said something similar. That's really saying something when even they notice.

          • mickysavage 1.1.1.1.1

            Man that is a tough standard. I have lived through the Prime Ministerial reigns of Kirk, Rowling, Lange, Palmer, Moore, Clark and Ardern and Ardern has had the toughest series of issues and handled them better than any of the others.

            • Sacha 1.1.1.1.1.1

              International journalist Anita McNaught said Ardern has the best command of material at media sessions of any world leader she has seen in action. I'd put more weight in her opinion than some random online.

          • Patricia Bremner 1.1.1.1.2

            Harvard's President John Boscow is thrilled Our Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is their 371st Principal Speaker to lead the class of 2022.

            "She is", he said "admired worldwide'. I think he knows more than you Blade. He mentioned her leadership and use of science in Climate Change Gender equality and Covid 19.

            Our PM has been chosen to speak on 26th May. She will be presented with and Honorary Degree. She is remarkable.

          • roblogic 1.1.1.1.3

            Newshub? We are so media-gaslit in this country. Cannot let relentless micro-criticism and lying hyperbole blind us the excellence of Ardern and her incredibly positive image around the world

        • aj 1.1.1.2

          She is also blessed with situations . . .

          Blessed? BLESSED? Good grief.

          • left for dead 1.1.1.2.1

            Yes,that's what I was thinking,blade is a plonker.
            Edited,just checked,,plonker:- fool.

            • Blade 1.1.1.2.1.1

              Yet she is losing the next election. Trying working that out, Plonker. Where is the disconnect between the lavish praise heaped on her and getting the boot from government?

              Answer – the man on the street who hasn't been listened to while her highness has trooped across the international stage wowing everyone, while being kept out of political rough stuff by her party in her own country.

              She now even has an audience with the US President. Not that he wanted to see her. But his advisers would have told him it would be very unwise not to have an audience with her given she is a global phenomenon.

              Good grief. sad

      • Stuart Munro 1.1.2

        Jacinda is a political mediocrity.

        One might ask, as compared to who? There are few or no politicians in NZ with recognizable skills – corruption has hollowed out both major parties. Fortunately, democracy does not require exceptional individuals, and in fact works better in the hands of those that can contain their vanity.

        police allowed a nut to obtain guns without doing due diligence

        That was of course part of the problem. But the gun supplier who sold him his weapons raised concerns among NZ police as far back as 2002, which in the event appear to be prima facie justified. There was some history of wrongdoing in the US which put him in prison for 21 months. How he secured a license to trade in firearms in NZ is difficult to fathom.

        • Maurice 1.1.2.1

          Gun City sold the firearms and the ammunition supplier sold the items by Mail Order pursuant to a Police Mail Order Form on which POLICE made the following declaration:

          Section 3: Police use – Transaction authorisation by Arms Officer I have inspected both the Seller’s and the Purchaser’s firearms licence records and I am satisfied that the purchaser is a fit and proper person to purchase the arms item(s) or ammunition listed herein.

          Once again a Police failure NOT the suppliers

          • Stuart Munro 1.1.2.1.1

            The supplier nevertheless continued to push US style gun nuttery immediately after the massacre. He is manifestly unfit to hold a license.

            • Graeme 1.1.2.1.1.1

              Same supplier also supplied a firearm to a journalist who entered false details in the mail order form. That wasn’t done on a whim, the journalist knew it was going to work as it was never checked and a commonly used ploy.

              Ideally both should have been charged for their respective crimes / failures and gone away. In reality neither were and the whole thing seemed to be swept under the carpet.

              • Maurice

                The whole thing was swept under the carpet because it was found that is appears that the Name and QID number of the purported official signer was correctly structured but the signature was not. Indeed Gun City pushed for a prosecution to allow the information of where that information came from to be revealed under Discovery in Court – even talked of a private prosecution. A months long official audit of every other Mail Order Form did not turn up even ONE other similarly fraudulent Mail Order Form – so NOT "a commonly used ploy."

                Then Mail Order Forms were handed to the applicant (buyer) and they emailed or posted them to the supplier – now the forms are emailed from the Police Arms Office or Station at which they are applied for/issued.

      • You want a standard for "political mediocrity" Blade?

        I give you Christopher 'I used to run an airline' Luxon!

        • left for dead 1.1.3.1

          Tony,hes says hes not a nat voter,seemore is his fiddle.

        • Blade 1.1.3.2

          Can't disagree. I'm wondering if he's ever had an original thought of his own? But as I have said before, Luxon is becoming the next PM of NZ, not because of what he is, but because of what he is not.

      • Nic181 1.1.4

        The NZ LAW allowed the Police to muff a gun licence and the NZ LAW allowed him to buy an assault rifle. Your bias demeans you, not the brave decision made to CHANGE the Law and to remove those assault weapons we could. Yes we did not get all of them because it relies on people doing the right thing. ALL Law relies on that. The criminals though, are deprived of many potentially stealable weapons. Let’s celebrate doing the right thing, rather than snidely and self importantly denigrating honest effort and good Law.

  2. Robert Guyton 2

    John Key, after trialling politics and Prime Ministership, realised that wealth, not political status, was the more powerful position, ditched the premium political role, and re-entered the money world, knowing that as a super-wealthy New Zealander, he could be top-of-the-pile, New Zealand's most powerful man! Now, having joined forces with the Chow Brothers, he's on his way to realising his childhood dream…

  3. Robert Guyton 3

    "As well as dealing with the crucial issue of money in politics, the new review will consider other highly contentious electoral issues:"

    Little wonder Elon's such a strange child.

    Where does Elon Musk get his ideas from? What is he trying to achieve and who does he want to be? Many of us are desperate to understand the world’s richest man, whose electric vehiclemaker Tesla is now, according to the stock market, worth a trillion dollars. Jill Lepore, a historian at Harvard University, suggests Musk was shaped by his adolescent love of science fiction and the strange, science-obsessed politics of his Canadian grandfather.

    Joshua Haldeman was a flamboyant character. Trained as a chiropractor, he performed in rodeos and sought adventure as an amateur archaeologist and pilot. After emigrating to SA with his family, he led a series of expeditions to find the mythical Lost City of the Kalahari. He died in 1974, when Elon was still a small child, but a photo shows that grandfather and grandson bear an uncanny resemblance.

    In the 1930s, Haldeman led the Canadian branch of the Technocracy movement, when “technocrat” meant something very different from a bland centrist politician. Then, it was a uniformed movement that marched under the Monad, or yin and yang, symbol, aiming to replace democracy with a society led by engineers. According to Lepore, Haldeman’s politics may have been his key bequest to his grandson.

    Believing that science and technology could cure all ills, Haldeman campaigned for the capitalist monetary infrastructure to be replaced by a new universal currency, based on a unit of heat, to be known as the erg. The technocrats even wanted an end to prices, in the view that scientists could handle distribution within society far better than the market.

    Such concepts seemed dangerous to the Canadian government, which banned the movement over its opposition to World War 2. The belief system faded away with the growth of prosperity after the war. But similar ideas are inspiring the current excitement over meme stocks, cryptocurrency and the man who now calls himself “Technoking”

    https://www.businesslive.co.za/bd/world/2021-11-01-science-fiction-and-grandfathers-views-shaped-musk-historian-says/

    https://www.jstor.org/stable/45337098

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technocracy_movement

    • Belladonna 4.1

      Reads like utter claptrap to me. Really? The photos of grandfather and grandson have an 'uncanny resemblance'. What are we supposed to understand from that: Genetic encapsulation of ideas? Spirit possession?

      I'm sure that Musk's grandfather (who sounds like an Indiana Jones type character) formed the basis of many family stories. However, as he died when Musk was about 3, it's unlikely he has any personal memories, or that there was any significant transfer of knowledge or philosophy.

      And science fiction is the literature of possible futures, it's not surprising that someone with a desire to change the world, grew up reading SF (in fact, it would probably be the default literature for most of the tech world). Intellectual snobbery from the 'academic' world.

      I note that she hasn't given (or been quoted on) a single reference from Musk saying that he was inspired by Grandad.

      Really, this reads like an academic desperately searching for relevance and/or headlines.
