  1. Your kidding!!!! ROFL

    TV clip…
    cut to worker leaving large factory premises, looks
    around 1970, interviewer asks them, create much
    wealth today? Worker cites ACT Brash propaganda about
    unproductivity in 30 years time how bad its going to get.
    cuts to the same factory, empty, covered in graffiti,
    clearly taken recently.
    and then to the same worker thirty years older
    sitting on an Australia beach
    leaving us guessing how productive he has been for
    the thirty years interim.

    How much we lost
    by not keeping up with the regulatory framework
    of our competitors, no CGT, no GST off fresh food,
    books, and baby stuff, no tax free threshold, no
    deposit guarentee on bank accounts.

    Why? Why has NZ fallen so far so fast?

    Could it be another regulatory change?
    The loss of a forward, long term, looking upper
    chamber, that stops rushed legislation.

    Now the secret is out of the bag, why would you
    invest for the long term in NZ when its patently
    obvious the bottlenext to growth is its
    shallow hollow parliament.

      The loss of a forward, long term, looking upper chamber, that stops rushed legislation.

      Why do people continue with the stupid belief? An Upper House in government makes government worse. You just have to look at the farce in the US to see that.

      • tc 2.1.1

        Works in OZ where the greens/democrats hold the balance and the electorate keeps it that way, half their senate is up every general election.

        US voters chose to give the upper house back to the republicans but then they voted for Reagan and George doublyah twice in enough numbers so like NZ is hardly an electorate that knows what’s good for it and also has a very biased media.

        • KJT

          You only have to look at the prosperity and success of Switzerland to see what the best system would be. Real Democracy!

          • aerobubble

            Yes. I agree. Swiss democracy would be far preferable. But some extra
            oversight in parliament, slowing the process makes legistlators more
            inclided to take their job more seriously. At the moment parliamentarians
            know when they make a mistake they will quickly amend their mistakes.
            This leads to them ignoring the hard problems, like growing a manager
            class that doesn’t have it so easy.

      • Jum 2.1.2

        Draco T Bastard

        Simple, bastard, a Youth Upper Parliament – it’s their future they’re dealing with. At least if and when things go wrong we can blame them! It is so the other way at present…

  3. Tangled up in blue 3

    If it wasn’t for the spelling mistake that would be perfect.

    • Sam 3.1

      Another example of uneducated labourites thinking that they can score points over trivia! That is why Labour will be consigned to a question in “trivial pursuit”:
      question – why is Phil Goff leading Labour to oblivion?
      answer- because hs caucus is tO weak to kick him out!

  4. Is this a beauty contest? Pig vs Farrar

  5. Policy Parrot 5

    yeah I think he’s been a capitalist a lot longer than that.

  6. bigbruv 6

    Is it the Chris Carter award for serial troughing and stealing from the tax payer?

    Seriously, how can any of you defend the useless United Nations when they are happy to offer jobs to low life’s like Clark and Carter?

    • The Voice of Reason 6.1

      Yeah, why aren’t they offering you a job, BB? Something to do with your fundamental dishonesty perhaps?  Your moral, political and financial bankruptcy, maybe?
      Like it or not HC has got the highest diplomatic post ever held by a kiwi because she is bloody good at what she does. I reserve my judgement on CC’s appointment, though.

    • ianmac 6.2

      So so predictable. Boring Big Bruiser!

    • KJT 6.3

      How can you defend a national party that is intent on acting as puppets for those who intend to steal billions from the tax payers of New Zealand??

      • Sam 6.3.1

        It was Clark and Cullen who stole taxpayer’s money to make them “feel good”.
        They raided the treasury to fund pooftas and no hopers.

        • lprent

          You mean that they really couldn’t be bothered with irredeemably stupid bigots like yourself? I wonder why…

          In fact I don’t even think that the Nats would have you. Looks like you’re restricted to either Act or the skinheads. Better go with Act – the entrance standards are lower.

    • Ianupnorth 6.4

      Could be because they are actually effective, unlike the current government.

  7. bigbruv 7

    Yeah, she is good at breaking the law, great at changing the law to make her crimes legal and even better at telling blatant lies.

    In other words she is perfect for the corrupt United Nations.

    Oh…and there is nothing wrong with my political morals Voice, I am not the one who defends corrupt unions, I am not the one who makes excuses for the corrupt Labour party and the corrupt government of Helen Clark. I am not the one who defends tax cheats like Matt McCarten.

    Check your own morals Voice.

    • KJT 7.1

      A dead ringer for Key, Joyce and Double Dipton then?

      • Craig Glen Eden 7.1.1

        Do you think that if you say the word corrupt enough big bruv that it makes you………….morally right with your political view. Capitalism just in case you haven’t notice is totally corrupt. Herd of that scripture the love of money is the root of all evil. So before you start throwing shit at the likes of HC or the Unions (which you obviously no nothing about) maybe just maybe you might want to take a look at how John the con has made (so called) his money. Who is it the bows at the alter of money again ?

        Earth to bigbruv wake up.

  8. framu 8

    yet you wont pay your debts?

  9. Irascible 9

    This article from The Australian gives some good arguments why people like BB think that they’re owed everything under the NACT govt of Key & Deipton. He is but one of the selfish generation that aspires to taking all and paying for nothing.

    • aerobubble 9.1

      For want of a horse the kingdom was lost. People had to work hard to achieve their homes,
      the luxuries in their homes. But with the advent of Thatcherism and cheap high density fuel,
      people got the luxuries earlier and easier. Even easier when they borrowed to buy a home in
      a bubbling market. However, this masters of the universe personality, take no prisoners ethos,
      zombie free market visionaries, will have lesser value to the winners in the next 30 years,
      and after oil it will be back to quality.

  10. tc 10

    I can see the altar BB kneels down and prays at with cute pic’s of Sideshow, Brashy and Blinglish maybe even Wodney’s still there just for old times sake…..sycophants are us! like frogs in water being heated they will not realise they’re being boiled alive as the spin and rhetoric is oh so lovely.

  11. randal 11

    he is more a fawning capitalist sychophant, a running dog.

  12. renderer 12

    Well blow me down KiwiBlog takes the Standard to the cleaners.

    • Bored 12.1

      Zombies and vampires proliferate…we live amongst a vast cloud of darkness, woe is us…..

    • The Voice of Reason 12.2

      Check the page views, doofus. Standard readers actually hang around on the site, which is an indication of quality blogging.

      • renderer 12.2.1

        The “hanging around the site” is not really an indication of the “quality” but more the anticipation of being slagged off for a contrary view, or checking to see who else has. The way the pages are set up on a site can also skew the numbers

        • The Voice of Reason

          Nope. Page views indicate engagement with the site’s home page and, importantly, click throughs to other pages. At 2.2 page views on average, the Standard is way ahead of Kiwiblog and really should be charging more for its advertising space. It really looks as if readers go to KB, see what’s on offer and leave (presumably holding their noses).

        • Jum

          You really must stay off kiwiblog; boiling fat down is obviously injurious to your mental health.

          This site provides another viewpoint to politics other than the paper rags purporting to be the eyes and ears for the people. You may be happy with fifth rate commentary in the herald or from the donkey’s mouth; I am not.

          There are many good blogs to check out apart from The Standard. However, The Standard is a regular reporter of the ‘other point of view’ which New Zealanders don’t receive from the fairfax media. Every day I know that whatever NActU are spouting I can get another view of it on The Standard, and The Standard is more accurate..

          Long live the Standard. At least it has standards; kiwiblog never did – it is a sewer run by rats for the benefit of stinking moneytraders and money launderers.

          • mik e

            At least the standard allows opposing point of views .not just right wing spew.

            • Vicky32

              At least the standard allows opposing point of views

              Not so much really…
              Or, to a very limited extent! (Especially as  some favoured people choose to define views that don’t match theirs as “right wing”… )

              [lprent: I suspect that you’re talking at cross purposes and since it involves how the site is run….

              I think that there is a big difference from my perspective between what moderators will not tolerate (trolling, blatant off-topic jacking, excessive link-whoring, and the like) and what commentators will object to with other commentators.

              We will often intervene harshly in the former to ensure that it doesn’t gain too much of a foothold and make the comments boring to read.

              We seldom intervene in the latter unless we think that it is getting a bit over heated. Or where we see people making comments that are simply abusive and where there is no particular point made. That is the point of the robust statement in the policy – you are reasonably free to argue and disagree with each other.

              This isn’t a site where people tend to be particularly nice to each other. It is a place to discuss and argue freely. But just as importantly it is a place where you may not bore the moderators with the repetitively mindless slogans and outright waffle like that the trolls bring.

              After all we have to read more of the comments than anyone else does – so we set the minimum standard as the worst that we can be bothered to put up with. But we’re a bit like cats in the sun – a lazy lot until either food or pests appear. Whereapon the activity has a tendency to be swift and lethal (unless we start playing with the food/pests).

              This leads to a reasonable degree of freedom provided comments stay away from things that irritate moderators and attract their attention. Mere bickering between commentators usually doesn’t attract our attention unless it is either amusing (a unusual event) or starts getting boring and repetitive. ]

    • Deadly_NZ 12.3

      Ahhhh but they only count visits, not the content. And Kiwiblog always leaves me wanting a shower when ever I visit it. That is if I am not banned for calling DPF a poison lying dwarf.

    • lprent 12.4

      First time for months that our page views have been less than KB’s. I guess he had a faster jump out of winter mode.

      But August is usually our lowest mid-winter month on a page view per day basis. It kicks up in September in the last couple of years.

      But KB’s overall growth has been pretty slack this year whereas we’ve been consistently about 35-40% up on our daily page views this year compared to last year for the same month and 25-30% on visits in analytics. It is election year, people are reading more pages….

      There is a hell of difference between packages on how they calculate visits. I looked at sitemeter and google analytics just now for August and there was a third difference between them in terms of numbers. The difference is pretty extreme. That is why I tend to ignore visits, it depends too much on what package is reporting. I saw the same issue between sitecounter and sitemeter when I was testing them.
