Posted in: Elon Musk reaches deal to buy Twitter for $44 bil See in context

A great day for proponents of free speech and a slap in the face of the woke left. All in all - a beautiful day to be a Twitter user.

and b y the way Hiro: He overpaid for that garbage. It not even worth half that amount. Is literally just a app for people to post a quick picture, video and text. With that kind of money, he could literally pull several nations out of their economic woes.

You clearly don't use Twitter at all if that is what you believe.

England looked very poor. They seem to have no real attacking ideas. France were strong in set-piece facets but their skill-level was average. Both these teams are quite beatable.

Capital punishment is utterly barbaric, in any country. It is a mark of a civilised country not to use on its citizens

The concept is great - but they still sound too expensive. You'd need 5 or 6 of them at least in a modular grouping to be useful for a family.

If only they still had Christopher Luxon in charge. Mind you, as he clearly odds-on favourite to be Prime Minister in 2023 - in some ways he will be in charge of Air NZ again.

Posted in: More protesters expected at thinning New Zealand blockade See in context

It certainly is interesting watching the media arm of the Labour party trying and failing to paint these freedom protesters as white supremacists and whatever else kind of boogeymen the left are currently obsessing over. Yes, there are some 'crazies' in the crowd for sure. Anyone who has taken time to go down and walk through the protest can quickly see it is mostly concerned, happy people (overwhelmingly left-wing themselves) tired and upset over government overreach in NZ. And now that the high court have ruled that mandates are illegal; and now that the measures of the Ardern government are so clearly failing - well, it is only a matter of time before many of the measures are abandoned for good. Sadly, the horrendous cost to NZ will endure for many years to come.

Hard to decide who was worse. The utterly uninspiring Italians, the error-ridden second-stream AB side, or the appalling officials? All conspired to make this a dog of a game.

Ardern thereby confirming that she no idea what she is doing. The country has printed itself to a standstill, inflation is rising, democratic process is calmly disregarded by the labour government while the media (bailed out by the same government) keeps telling everyone the situation is all roses.

Just like her now infamous: "eliminate child poverty" promise/lie, so goes her elimination of covid 'strategy'.

Posted in: New Zealand’s largest city to remain locked down See in context

This has been disastrous for NZ. The economy has been wrecked and despite our naturally small, isolated islands managing to delay the inevitable the endemic nature of the virus means this has been nothing more than an expensive exercise in futility. Ardern must be called to account for her incompetence.

Same as it ever was. I had predicted that NZ would return to #1 after their first meeting with SA post-RWC. It would have been in 2020 if not for covid. Who would have guessed it would happen before they even played.

Posted in: New Zealand selects transgender athlete Hubbard for Olympic women's weightlifting team See in context

it's so sad that women's sport is being ruined by biological men, purely to appease the 'feels' of a tiny minority. As a NZer, I feel indifferent towards Hubbard's identity, he can call himself whatever she pleases. But for the poor women that must compete against him - it is just sad that sports' institutions accept this.

Wow, looking at some of these posts it's like the North Korean justice system is better than Japan's. Like in Japan they force you to talk by pulling out fingernails and drilling into your kneecaps. And the US system is complicit in the torture of these fine people

Japan's justice system is full of documented physical and mental torture cases.

Tremendously sad news. Japan's highly flawed and racist justice system will ensure they are not given a just or civilised trial.

Posted in: New Zealand Maori leader ejected from parliament for not wearing tie See in context

two of NZ's very worst parliamentarians arguing past each other in a complete bonfire of vanities. The moronic Mallard and the ultra-precious Waititi. Waititi continues his ranting of racist exceptionalism and Mallard just keeps being Mallard; now universally considered the worst Speaker in our history.

Neckties may well be anachronistic and silly - but parliament was surveyed, and voted in majority (across parties) to keep them. But, of course, a radical like Waititi wants to be seen as special. How far is he willing to go? Would he give up his huge taxpayer funded salary to quit in a principled stance? Or will he just whip out the tired, boorish old trope about maori exceptionalism? It's a trick question: he will do the latter.
