  1. Ad 1

    I am really, really looking forward to Don Brash going ahead with his little society as a political party to contest elections. There’s just no downside to vote share splitting, MSM mockery, and very active televisual protests.

    • Bearded Git 1.1

      +100 but shush….don’t put them off.

    • Lanthanide 1.2

      You reckon there’s no harm in a tiny band of obstreperous people getting dramatically more media attention than they deserve, while spreading messages of hate?

      • Ad 1.2.1

        Hopefully they would parade down the street.

        Excellent rallying call for everyone else to tell them how they feel.

        • Lanthanide

          I don’t see why it’s good that the media waste their limited air time giving coverage to extremist groups.

  2. gsays 2

    So the legacy of insightful brash photos continues.

  3. Herodotus 3

    Warning ….. many outside Auckland will be shocked at this …..
    $720,000 will enable you to buy this in outer Auckland, then you have to build a house that can only have a 45% building coverage or 135m2. Just as well we are a functioning high income country !!!!!

    • Colonial Viper 3.1

      So glad to be far far away from there

    • Ch-ch Chiquita 3.2

      It took me a minute to realise these are less than 400m2 sections! And those that are “family” size are $1.2M!

    • RedLogix 3.3

      Just the start apparently:

      Sitting in his office overlooking Hong Kong’s skyscraper-dotted Victoria Harbour, Li estimates that just 3% of potential Chinese investors in overseas property have so far been found – meaning a virtually untapped goldmine lies over the border in mainland China. “China is a big market, you know?” he says. “They are getting wealthier and wealthier.”


      China first destroys manufacturing in the West with an undervalued currency, and then sets about buying up overseas assets using cheap credit printed without apparent limit, by a state controlled banking system.

      Note carefully, the Chinese are not generally buying or build new productive assets in the West … just land. And at the same time they have laws to prevent you or I buying Chinese property.

    • Lanthanide 3.4

      Apparently 750m is “very large” and worth over $1M.

      I bought a section in Christchurch, 835m, about 15 minutes from the central city. 5 minutes from my work. $240k.

    Inside Out opinion: Band leader ignores letter on rock star economy
    By Nickie Muir – Northern Advocate
    11:28 AM Thursday Sep 29, 2016

    I WROTE a letter to my main bro’ John Key about his rock star economy a while ago, and the reality of the regions mostly being about a rock and a hard place.

    He never answered, but one of the best definitions of what a rock star economy actually means was an online comment by a Marc M. ‘Just wondered, by ‘rock star economy’ do you mean it’s likely to play a few choice tunes, trash a few hotel rooms, go on a drug binge then end up in rehab only to disappear into relative obscurity?”

    Love it. I also like how the comments are all in favour of the article and against Key and the National Government.

  5. Trey 5

    As outrage builds about the case of Losi Filipo, Key said he would “hate to think” that rugby players were treated any differently by the justice system. HAHA good one John.

    “I’d be very surprised if [the judge] has taken into consideration solely that he is a rugby player,” Key said after being asked about the case today. HAHA more bullshit

    “The only thing I would say is violence is unacceptable anywhere, it doesn’t matter what your profession is. If you undertake violence you should be held to the same set of rules as everyone else. LMFAO

    John Key.

    Wouldn’t it have been nice if the Ponytail Pulling Parnell PM had been held to the same rules as everyone else when he went into someones place of work and repeatedly pulled her hair.

  6. Takere 6

    Another party on the horizon? The nutty right could milk a percentage point & a half of voters away from the NACT-Con parties? That’ll hurt PinoKeyo & the Nat’s come election time. It may help Tainui Inc though, bugger.
    Maybe Maori should start sending the Hobsons Plebs invitations to speak at Hui to encourage us all to see it from their poor, under privileged, misunderstood rich white old guy perspective? The premise being, “we’re not Racists” …but ….

    • Lanthanide 6.1

      For every percent they siphon off, three probably another 2% ergo would refuse to waste their vote, but who would otherwise support them.

      • Takere 6.1.1

        They’re a very small “angry” group. Last election the Cons drew 95,000, Act 16,600.
        With the likes of Hooten championing the Rights of the Neo-Cons with a bit of racism & mental illness thrown in kinda fits the general description of this Pleb Hobson Mob of gutless activists ….. bring back a bit of Hangee-Hangee!
        We need to think about introducing eugenics for nutters of this type. I’m starting to think that all that needs to be done is to adopt & adapt Duetere’s policy alittle and apply it here! 🙂
