    Kiwi Cabinet – Why Kow-Tow To Globalist Media Diktats? 


    Beware, New Zealand.

    The UNHCR is a supranational outfit that has shown itself ever-ready to interfere in the internal politics of sovereign states…

    …and the news that it has ‘asked’ the NZ Government to ‘start accepting unaccompanied‘ juveniles ought to be seen as the onset of pressure politics, not any kind of polite request.

    I won’t go into the whole story, though you can read it all via the link, but it seems that, happily, New Zealand’s ministers did not knuckle under to a UNHCR call  ‘for the proportion of African refugees to rise to a quarter and those from the Middle East to increase to 35 percent to rehome refugees from Syria, Iraq, South Sudan, Somalia, Congo and Eritrea.’

    The papers show MFAT warned that old geographical and other criteria had reputational risks.

    “It considers there is a risk that New Zealand could be perceived as less welcoming of refugees from the Middle East and Africa…. “

    That was echoed by other officials who said New Zealand risked bad publicity because international media outlets were intending to publish articles if changes were not made.

      Thanks for this.
      Immigration is a big issue in NZ but if you say what you think you get told to embrace diversity or shut up.
      NZ is and always has been diverse enough, two cultures, the Maori and us white Kiwis of British descent.
      That was good enough and worked pretty well.

      They gave us a referendum on our flag so why not on who gets to come here.

    NZ Euthanasia Referendum? Why Not On Capital Punishment? 


    I rarely get much from New Zealand to comment on, and it’s been a while…

    Kiwi Shoppers Should Be Entitled To Bash Vile Vegans!

    ..though when I do, the stories are usually interesting….

    ….but this latest news, that MPs there are bowing to the democratic principle, giving Kiwis a referendum on euthanasia, is most welcome.

    BUT…why only on euthanasia?

    In a true democracy, if the people are indeed sovereign, they should have the right to a citizens’ initiative, demanding a vote on any issue.

    I have no idea how New Zealanders feel about the death penalty, but in many Western lands the politicians are seriously out of step with the people.

     

    The political class is almost openly contemptuous of us common folk. Certainly, when the UK ended capital punishment, British MPs arrogantly over-rode the wishes of the electorate.

    I have heard that there are concerns too about immigration in NZ, that tiresome leftist PM sabotaging a sensible reform planned by her coalition partner.

    Inexplicably, she seems to like the idea of aliens getting in based on the primitive practice of ‘arranged marriage.’  https://www.newsroom.co.nz/2019/11/11/899072/the-dirty-little-secret-about-this-migration-debate

    Kiwi Shoppers Should Be Entitled To Bash Vile Vegans! 


    Where’s the compassion for beans, crammed into cans, drowned in sauce?

    ..

    Kiwi Kooks, meat-hating vegans, at least those I’m writing about today,  are obnoxious louts.

    If they seek to prevent people going about their lawful activities, then the vegans’ victims should have an absolute right to clobber the bums.

    I refer to an extract from a report from New Zealand.

    The insolent scum ‘formed a picket line to block shoppers’ access to the meat section and counter.’

    That is completely unacceptable.

    The vegans could have peacefully demonstrated outside -no worries! That’s the democratic way.

    Instead they deliberately launched aggressive, obstructive action designed to provoke decent people simply trying to buy food for their families.

    Buying and Eating Meat is a lawful pursuit!

    ..,

    But I strongly suspect that if any of the innocent shoppers had taken steps needed to reach the items they were perfectly within their rights to buy, and given any of the vegan louts a good clout as richly deserved, it would be the shoppers who found themselves the focus of police attention.

    And that would be wrong!

    Too Little Too Late – Mama Stasi MIGHT Expel A Satanic Handful!

    Many’s the question that springs promptly to mind when we read the report in DW and elsewhere of Mama Stasi’s latest cack-handed moves on the migrant menace.

    The new law would apply only to jihadis who are of age, have a second nationality and take part in future battles as part of IS. It would not be applied retrospectively, and thus would not affect IS fighters who are currently imprisoned….

    According to DW, this weak-kneed waffle law would have been much more effective had not the Socialist ‘Justice Minister,’ a woman named Katarina Barley.

    She reportedly refused to accept attempts by Interior Minister Horst Seehofer to allow authorities to strip children under the age of five of their citizenship if their parents had unlawfully acquired German citizenship, for instance, by deception.

    Barley ( above) is clearly a dodgy character.

    Nuts to that!

    I could also detour to renew my regular call for repudiation of that idiotic supranational deal that prevents civilised countries rendering undesirables stateless if they have no other nationality.

    But what’s really amiss is that the changes would not affect IS fighters who are currently imprisoned….

    Oh, no, it’s retrospective legislation, I hear the liberals shrilling.

    BIG DEAL.

    There’s much that can be said about the demerits of retrospective legislation, but we are talking about people who are beyond the pale!

    It’s simply WRONG to treat jihadists as if they are human.

    They deserve to be extirpated, and if governments do not have the conscience or the guts to do that, then at the very least they should disown them.

    But still we have to listen to bleeding hearts – like the New Zealand Government…

    …and its defenders, hack-jocks like a man called Andrew Dickens, who sneers at the decent Kiwi folk who called his talk-show in NZ to denounce his readiness to re-admit the jihadist scumbag in the photo below.

    Taylor, also known as Mohammad Daniel and Abu Abdul Rahman, burnt his New Zealand passport after going to Syria to fight for Isis.

    Dickens says that the ‘most concerning part of this debate‘ is that ‘when you strip a person of their citizenship, you strip them of their legal existence. They become a non-person with no rights, no home, no verifiable proof of their existence.

    Great idea.

    If they have no rights, they are put into a category which once existed in English law, that of OUTLAW, whom anyone can put down without fear of come-back.

    And that’s how to handle jihadists.

    But to Dickens, ‘it’s a very worrying concept.’

    He invokes the spectre of ‘Nazi Germany,’ and refers to one of my fave authors, George Orwell, whose ‘1984’ defined ‘Un-Persons’ as those that have been ‘vaporized, murdered and erased from society, the present, the universe, and existence.’

    vermin

    Wow.

    Let’s make every ISIS rape-gang acolyte an Un-Person!

    The universe would be infinitely more fragrant were all jihadists to be vaporised.

    Or hanged, or shot, or guillotined.

    In a real democracy, that policy would be put to a referendum, a free and fair vote on the death penalty for terrorists and those who aid and abet them.

    Shorten to Kiwis – ‘Please Take Our Boat-Bludgers!’

    Since the Anzac Spirit was engendered at Gallipoli, through WW2 and the ANZUS Treaty and still today, Aussies and Kiwis, though they like to goad each other, have been not just neighbours but friends.

    Now Labor’s Shorten seriously contemplates asking NZ to carry out Australia’s garbage?

    New Zealanders have only recently saved their beautiful flag.

    When Death Is So Richly Deserved… 


    ========

    I have just had critical comment about my posts against alien predators. Some guy thinks I should also attack white predators. This below was ready for posting when I get home late tonight or tomorrow.

    My reason for often singling out phoney ‘refugees’ is that while we have to deal with home-grown vermin, of course, I see no merit in importing alien vermin.

    ————

    Not having a go at the Antipodes in particular today, just so appalled by two news items from there, so close together in timing and so powerful in the message they send about what’s wrong with the Western world.

    oooooooooooo

    Ronald Van Der Plaat – no contemporary photos alas

    —————-

    Earlier I condemned an Ethiopian who got turned loose despite being convicted for a sex crime against an Aussie lass.

    Now we have this thing, a ‘man’ who kept his daughter as a sex slave for more than 20 years.

    He only got 15 years for this vile offence (offences, surely, a series of atrocities on a helpless girl) when death by any method would have been fairer. But New Zealand has yet to grasp the need for the restoration of capital punishment.

    So life, real life, surely? No, a mere 15 years. Less than the slavery lasted for his daughter. Sick mockery of justice.

    And NOW?

    The slimy fiend is set to leave prison despite fears he may reoffend.

    ========

    Predators and Child Molestors

    ————–

    Incredibly, we learn it’s not the first time the thing has been unleashed on society..

    Van Der Plaat earlier was released in 2010, but sent back to jail after being seen holding hands with a girl of about five years old in Auckland.

    But before we condemn the parole board, their hands were tied because the law is defective.

    ——-

    Even though they reckon he has a serious risk of re-offending, they had to let slimer out because he was sentenced before compulsory detention rules came into force and has served his full sentence.  https://au.news.yahoo.com/a/31567162/man-who-had-daughter-as-sex-slave-released/

    Insanity.

    The law should, could, have been retrospectively amended to deal with cases like this pig.

    Now one can only hope that some public-spirited Kiwi will take care of business!

    Kiwis Keep The Flag Flying! But Oz Pinkos Aren’t Happy! 


    ooo

    Congratulations to the people of New Zealand, who have voted to keep their flag, rejecting by postal referendum the odd alternative, which resembles the sort of banner some new African republic might hoist proudly.

    But in Australia, where an alliance of multiculter and republicans have long been pushing to dump Australia’s world-famous flag, there is instant whining, not least from a twit who has failed to realsie that Australia DOES have a flag of its own!

    ————

    Peter FitzSimons

    Peter FitzSimons is a director of Ausflag, devoted to Australia having a flag of its own, with uniquely Australian symbols. He is also the chairman of the Australian Republican Movement.
    http://www.smh.com.au/comment/new-zealand-flag-referendum-think-this-is-the-end-of-it-think-again-20160325-gnr4gd.html 

    The Sydney Morning Herald, the left-liberal Fairfax conglomerate’s leading newspaper, has provided ample space for this strange man, who appears to enjoy dressing up as a pirate (no idea why – maybe his hair is thinning faster than mine and he just can’t bear it!)  

    He has listed various reasons why another assault on NZ’s flag must soon be mounted, including this gem. 

    the obvious flag that most people preferred from the start, which was the simple silver fern – the Kiwi version of the Canadian Maple Leaf – on a black background was just gaining traction when the Islamic State flag came along looking remarkably similar. And that was the end of that.

    A sore loser, howling at the moon.

    Meanwhile, in the UK, The Guardian has been at it too, twisting the NZ result to serve its own Europhiliac cravings.

    Some geezer named Martin Kettle concludes that it sounds as though the undecided voters decided they were better off with what they were accustomed to, whatever its faults  .http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/mar/24/new-zealand-flag-britain-eu-referendum

    Really?

    That’s pretty condescending. Because, as Kettle goes on to admit, ‘Flags matter because they embody identity.’

    Indeed they do. So it wasn’t that the Kiwis couldn’t be bothered, that they kept what they had because they were used to it. It was a conscious decision, after a long campaign by the ‘changers,’ led by the phoney-conservative Prime Minister Key, and it was a clear decision, made because their flag is beautiful, and meaningful.

    But Kettle boils over, pro-Brussels steam, his conviction that people choose the ‘status quo’ because they lack the initiative, imagination, courage or whatever that’s needed to do anything else, leading him to prophesy that Britons never, never, never, will reject rule from Brussels.

    EU - referendum vote

    How quaint.

    In NZ, people opt for pride in their traditions, so in the UK, people will seek to have them buried under the EUSSR Tower of Babel? 

    I’d say hogwash, but Kettle doesn’t care what I say, or, for that matter, what Kiwis say, because he’s already announcing, like Pinko Fitzsimmons in Australia, that they wasted their votes.

     New Zealand will have a new flag one day.

    Will Kiwis Endorse Key’s Disdain for Conservatism? 


    From time to time there are complaints that New Zealand rarely features on this blog.

    So, with a Jakarta overcast morning to fill, and a background of La Marseillaise booming out from You Tube, as it frequently has this week, here you go!

    oooooooooooooooooooo

    In what possible way can some parts of the media describe NZ’s John Key as leader of a ‘conservative’ government?

    ———————-

    • 8514831 Key
    • —————-
    • Having dynamited marriage as a meaningful concept, bowing to the ‘gay’ agenda, he’s now bent on changing New Zealand’s flag, a process described inexplicably as ‘flag reform’ – subtle (?) bias, since ‘reform’ carries a positive note.

    ‘Change’ would be the impartial description.

    ——

    Striking at the roots of a country, its values and its most important symbols, is the mark of an intensely radical mind-set, the very antithesis of conservatism. Classical conservatism is NOT synonymous with capitalism – laissez faire is an old-fashioned liberal idea, after all – any more than the corporate state reflects the conservative concept of the organic society. 

    Of course Kiwis have the right to do anything they want using democratic processes, but whatever Key’s agenda is, it’s not remotely ‘conservative.’ 

    He sees the current flag, which has the Union Jack in the corner, as an anachronism, arguing the country needs a standard “that screams New Zealand.”

    https://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/30152133/vote-opens-on-new-zealand-flag-referendum/

    Screams? Flags are meant to embody a nation’s dignity.

    His own Deputy Prime Minister is entirely on board Key’s programme, yet appears unable to recognise the fundamentally illogical aspect of his recent exhortation to NZ’s electorate to select a flag they felt represented “New Zealand’s proud, pioneering past and its exciting, ambitious future.”

    Having the Union Jack on the flag precisely fulfils the first part of his call, and as for the second, ‘representing the future’ is about as odd a phrase as one might imagine.

    Not even conservative bloggers like me know what the future holds! So ‘representing’ it is surely a task better reserved for sci-fi geeks than referenda.

    Deciding such matters is important. The Deputy PM is therefore correct when he says “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

    Actually, according to polls, it’s apparently the case that New Zealanders are set to stick with what they’ve got.

    Are those any kind of improvement on this?

    • ———————————–

    They have to vote on an alternative first, then choose between the winner in that ‘beauty contest’ and the existing flag their armed services have served honourably for several generations.

    The main thing is ( unlike on marriage, where the ‘gay’ lobby successfully opposed allowing the people a vote) the people are getting to make the decision.

    “Very few governments around the world have ever asked their citizens for their views on the design of their national flags.”

    Fair point, and hurray for Kiwi democracy.

    Canadians were denied that right.

    Some of us will never forget the deep grief that gripped Canada’s majority fifty years ago, reflected in that memorable photograph of Dief the Chief turning his head away sadly during the ceremony in Ottawa, when what we called Pearson’s Pennant replaced the Red Ensign.

    • Half a century has passed, and the new flag has been sanctified by sacrifices made by many brave men and women who have served Canada well under its colours.

    But there was never a case made for replacing its glorious predecessor.

    Most Canadians shared the view of my cousin ( by marriage -real marriage of course -there was no other kind in those days!) J W Monteith when he roared across the floor of the House of Commons ‘You must be nuts!’ after Lester Pearson exhorted the outraged Opposition to abandon their fight for the flag they loved.

    Ahoy, Antipodes! Now It’s ‘Climate’ “Asylum”-Seekers! 


    I suppose it might be argued that I myself am a ‘climate’ refugee!

    After all, anyone who spent all of his school years and decades of his working life in either Canada or the UK, or anywhere in lands that border the North Atlantic, surely has grounds for seeking sunnier shores.

    I don’t know the statistics but strongly suspect it’s a fact that rheumatism and arthritis among senior cits is much more common on shores lashed by Atlantic rain and cities beset by sleet and snow for many months each year.

    So when I saw this headline, I paused.

    Well, not much of a refugee, if he came in on a visa (what kind? work? holiday?) then decided he liked NZ so much he suddenly felt a need for ‘asylum!’

    Honest folk would go home then apply properly. There’s nobody waiting to shoot him back there, is there?
