John English: loses a second election for National!
Jacinda Ardern: a big mouth will only get you so far!
Winston Peters: The hottest senior citizen in the country right now!
Northland: New high speed monorail from Whangarei to Auckland announced.
The parties (From most right wing to most left wing.)
ACT (1 seat)
If Toorak had its own party, it would be ACT. It’s about as far right as can be electable. ACT got to a maximum of 5 members and then crumbled on internal scandals. ACT are the party for greedy people who never worked for it.
National (58 seats)
Basically the same as the Liberal-National coalition though probably with more focus on the Nationals side. Has been in power for 3 terms, taking power away from <deepest voice possible > Helen Clark. National are notionally pro-farmer and pro-business, though since the 80’s this has generally meant big farm and big business, though in effect they pander to foreign non-resident investors which created a housing and immigration bubble.
New Zealand First aka NZF ( 9 seats) and Winston Peters kingmaker of the day
A center right nationalist/populist party formed for the cult of personality of Winston peters. Peters entered parliament in 1979 and was only out from 2008-2011. At 72 he’s the oldest person in the NZ parliament. The party was formed as a result of Peters public disagreement with the National government policies in 1990-1992, a party that refused to let him stand again in his seat. He forced a by-election as an independent and then at the next election he won with his fledgling party. The parties support has fluctuated over the years and even went to zero seat in the 2008-2011 period. Peters is a canny political survivor and his consistent issues have been cutting immigration better treatment for retirees ( a segment he enjoys huge support from) and the country’s economic problems.
Labour (45 seats)
More or less the same as the ALP, though the last time they were in power they governed without increasing government debt. Previously had supply and confidence with NZF from 2005-2008 allowing them a third term.
Greens (7 seats)
Just like the Australian greens closet Marxists with a few sane people thrown in to make it look electable. Competes with labour for the same voters but the Greens tends to the target the younger and more naïve voter. Greens lost a lot of support for suggesting reducing the immigrant numbers, what bigots!
The possible outcomes (deja vu)
This will be the third time Winston peters has held the balance of power and been the king maker for a NZ government, the next weeks will be filled with intense negotiations with Labour and National so see what positions in caucus his party might get and what policies can be agreed on.
The first ex-wife
ACT, Nationals long time flunky would be jettisoned as irrelevant and National would have the numbers but at what cost? NZF’s flagship issue immigration might be an easy concession as immigration numbers are said to be naturally deceasing. But after 20 years of immigration flooding is it too late to prevent the damage from mass immigration?
The second ex-wife
Labour (with nasty neighbour greens)
A minority government option with greens either offering supply and confidence or abstaining from no-confidence votes. Jacinda Ardern might be willing to do anything to get power and end Nationals 3 term government.
The second ex-wife with menage a tois angry sex
Labour with greens
The more complex option attempting to wrangle policy with 2 leftist partners who are sometimes at odds with each other sometimes trying to claim credit for conceiving and/or implementing the same ideas. This seems less likely given that NZF generally dislikes the Greens as much as it dislikes ACT seeing both as too extreme.
The Maori party completely removed from government with all its seats taken by Laobur. Now no political party exists that specifically represents Maoris despite there being 7 dedicated Maori seats in parliament .
Gareth Morgan’s TOP party received 0.2% of the party vote; apparently 8000 NZ voters don’t know how highly this former reserve bank economist spoke of North Korea when he did a motorcycle tour there.
Winston Peters held his election party in Russel, close to the original site of the first New Zealand government Kororareka. Yet another deja vu.
NZ’s MMP electoral system is similar to how the Australian senate is formed. This system is supposed to be more representative of the will of the people and is meant to give more voice to smaller parties. But in the end MMP gives more power to political parties, who in the end often decide who is going to be the government not the voters.
The most interesting entrails
The most interesting part about this election? On the quiet the reserve bank might be a casualty. From NZF’s website:
My favorite band, Deja Voodoo, they probably sound familiar.
Its not illegal for people to be gay or for gay people to live together, but recognizing gay relationships as ‘marriages’ opens up other legal avenues (and cans of worms) such as gay adoption ( a purchase disguised as adoption), which for this Russian boy didn’t turn out well. So virtue signal all you like with voting ‘yes’ but just be quite aware what you may be voting for. Its not about gay marriage its about an over arching cultural marxist agenda and a bridgehead to socially corrosive practices.
Remember Peter Truong put himself forward to be a the gay adoption poster child, look at how that turned out. Cherry picking, I think not.
Equifax, a major US credit reporting service on Thursday announced it was hacked somewhere between May 2017 and June 2017. Executives have used the intervening time to sell their shares in the company, probably committing the crime of insider trading in the process. Financial and personal data of up to 143 million US citizens have been compromised, meaning even if the capital of the company ($6.6B) was liquidated in a class action, victims would receive less that $50. Identity theft will now likely rise in the USA at least in the short term.
It appear that Britis
It appear that 44 million British credit record may also be affected.
Multiple Australian federal parliamentarians caught up in dual citizen scandals which probably make them disqualified to be in government. Its going to get interesting.
So the BOM has been deleting very low temperature measurements from its data sets. The global warming that has waffled on about for years has been completely fake. Let that sink in. You have been worshiping a false god and paying tribune to a false messenger of doom.
#datagate, get that trending.
Bill shortens latest (out of the blue) election promise is a plebiscite to create a republic and have an Australian head of state. Dam it would be funny if he got his wash and peopled voted in Pauline Hanson to be the president, who then hacked shortens communist head off.
So when authorities catch up with the male star of this video they will have the requisite evidence and admissions that the women involved attempted to kill him before (throwing a chisel and nail gun nails and his windscreen) and after ( attempting to run him over) the much publicized video clip section.
Never a more clear case of ‘Ex causa turpi’ if I ever saw one. If we ever meet this reluctant hero well give him the box of XXXX stubbies that Kevin Rudd still owes us.
A solid punch in the face; for when “please stop trying to kill me” is not really a sufficient reply to gain a change in disposition.
So if you think violence does not work, you’ll find its the first thing police will try to solve a problem.
Following the publication on from a short comical animated gif posted on reddit CNN embarked on an blackmail campaign against the creator of the gif, a child.
CNN has now stooped to criminal behavior to attempt to threaten the public into criticism of its fake new and fraud news activities.
This revelation of blackmail has created a Streisand effect.
CNN is has now dug a big hole for itself, a hole so a big a imaginary Russian hacker can’t even get them out of.
It really make you wonder what kind of person works at CNN, knowing that they are deceiving the public.
1 Claims of ill health
He will claim he is too ill to travel, he did this in the past to avoid going to Australia to testify for other church sex abuse cases.
2 No extradition
There is no extradition treaty with the Vatican City, which is a country in itself. So guilty or not, he can never be forced into a prison cell in Australia.
3 Massive funds
George Pell is the minister of economy in the Vatican City, he has at his hands a vast sum of wealth. Our ‘legal system’ is a run as a for profit business, so people who have money get favourable results regardless of what they have done.
4 Paedophiles at the top
The political and legal system here is filled with fellow paedophiles who will be all too keen for this to go away before people start scratching the surface too much.
5 Crooked cops
Victoria police is full with criminals of all stripes and will be told to collapse the case or else their crimes will get exposed. This is why police are so rarely charged with any crime, the police control the prosecution of themselves.
6 Courts can’t be criticised
The Victorian legal system is ruthless to critics.
Just last week several federal politicians were threatened with contempt of court if they did not retract their criticisms.
7 Hush money
George Pell set up the Australian Catholic church system of hush money, and now has a vast fortune at his hands to shut people up. It’s possibly why he was promoted to this position in the first place.
8 Decades of cover ups
It went on for so long because: Hush money, crooked cops, paedophiles in high places, people afraid to come forward and complain. Suicides along the way reduced the complainant numbers.
You’ll get a lynching if you demand it with burning torches and pitchforks.
