Fraid so. Air New Zealand is considering reshuffling aircraft and putting on additional trans-Tansman flights. There might even be growth in Pussuffuk Island desertions too.
What was that platform Key campaigned on last time?...something about Change.
Julia Gillard might wake up one day soon too and realise she's befriended a total philitstine. Shame for her Rudd knew the guy was a total munter from the start!

I think the Jonkey now knows where Fiji is - which is progress on 3 or 4 years ago

lol Tim, re Air NZ reshuffling flights!

...shows you the powerful effect of keeping the population dumbed down; of an education system that doesn't include civics as a core subject...

Time to stop blaming Shonkey (oh, did I spell that wrong?), government and 1%. Time to educate ourselves....

Suggestion: buy a book on finance&political theory to read on your flight to Australia.

So glad I was in OZ when he came to power...still...even watching from afar, NZ has the attraction of a slow-motion car crash.....you yell from the sidelines but no one seems to hear and you have to let the whole horrible scene play out.....

What Happened ? I'll tell you what happened ! A doofus crew of media minions fawned over the rich spillings of the 1%ers so as they could continue being able to afford good E and with a bit of luck , a little left over coke dust after the gin palaces sailed back to the CIty of False Economies from their neo Kiwi mansions masquerading as holiday batches , or cribs if you prefer . Only owned just to show off in, hence your nightmare . Some nightmare about a National Government ? Nah mate ! Well ... only if you didn't vote national .. Or if you're a hungry kid in Otara . What day of the week is this ? Good question . I think it's Wafday ? Yeah , it's Wafday ! We're-all-fucked-day . It's a new day . It's a day that slots in between the days you work and the days you play . It's not a very long day , in fact , its duration can only be measured by the laws of quantum physics as any day that exists between work and play doesn't really exist in this time / space because all we do is work our gut's out for less money , less leisure and less time spent trying to be good parents and friends to our friends since our true masters , our slave drivers , the Dark Lords , Satans mates , those whose names we cannot say , the Great Untouchables , those whom worm into your hearts and minds late at night when you're all rolled into your bed , surrounded by a monster mortgage as you listen to your hungry kids sniffle in a cold house in Aranui during a Christchurch winter ... Yes ! You got it ! The Corporations ! If you think you have a gubbimint , government , or Government , think again ! Try this as a little experiment . Stand on a street corner and shout ' The Government are no more than crooks ! ' then , on that same street corner ... now , pick your favourite Corporation ... Go on ! Who is it ? One you think is more loathsome than the rest . Now , shout that out ! ' The ............. are crooks ! ' Now , see that man / woman coming along ? He / she is about to serve you with a paper suing you for liable / slander . You are innocent ? You may well be but you will get buried in the cost of litigation and they'll tie up your life until you run out of it . And no matter what nightmare you have about any one Government , you can't vote the corporate fuckers out ! They are the ones who really control our lives ! They are the ones who push you around ! Our faux politicians are simply brokering the deals . Fuck the insurance industry ! Fuck the banks ! Fuck the evil money lenders ! Fuck the super markets ! Fuck the Media , you rich fucking cowards ! Want to see tomorrows nightmare today ? Watch ' Idiocracy ' ! Stupid as , but also a prophecy ! And a word to you Kiwis in Australia . Why are you not here and fighting for your country and the people you love ? Have you sold out too ? This is your country , not theirs ! This is a massively rich land . So why are you there ? Are you afraid ? Why ? Why are you afraid ? If you're afraid , stand up ! Fight ! Fight for your land ! It's not theirs as I've said ! It's ours ! FIGHT FOR IT ! Come home and FIGHT! Before it's too late . Remember ! There's safety in numbers . Reunite and Fight !

“so you’re a John fucking Key voter then...” or “so let me get it right, you voted for the dirty filthy tory mine it, sell its?” is my retort for the next few months to any whingers out there, absolute classic case of false consciousness aka turkeys voting for an early christmas.

No more shit about Labour losing the plot please, the plot losers were kiwis who did not value a $15 minimum wage or union rights or bloody voting.

Tim, welcome to Parallel Earth MCXXII.

Please enjoy your brief visit, until you return to your own Earth, where voters are brighter and tend not to be mesmerised by a cat stroking villain. (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0_E7woevaws/TvxrMT-xrmI/AAAAAAAABkI/X4A8mxIy21M/s400/nm_key.jpg)

(No, I don't mean Blofeld. Sherlock Holmes despatched that particular villain last year, on Parallel Earth MCXXVI.)

Earth to Tumeke....is this a "media outlet" or just an indulgence - like most other mss outlets have become.

Oh right...you're on holiday. I get it now. I should just chow down and be grateful I have a msm to inform me!

How many of you are there?
bOMBER.....
fO-EBE....
one or two others maybe?

Pardon me - I'll exit the site forthwith.

Shit is still happening on the planet - and some of it quite serious. Accuse not the Sleepy Hobbit when the supposed alternative perspective appears well and truly asleep aussie.

"And a word to you Kiwis in Australia . Why are you not here and fighting for your country and the people you love ?"We're doing our bit trying to spread the word - sometimes you can see more clearly what's going on from afar...woods for trees, etc. The trouble is, everyone we are preaching to is moving to Aussie......

I found this on that there Web thing !
And you go well in Australia . It's a fantastic place . And thank you Blueleopardthinks . You are very kind . And , there's nothing wrong with being rich . Just leave us the fuck alone !
Part one of two .
A note of appreciation from the rich .

Let's be honest: you'll never win the lottery.
On the other hand, the chances are pretty good that you'll slave away at some miserable job the rest of your life. That's because you were in all likelihood born into the wrong social class. Let's face it — you're a member of the working caste. Sorry!

As a result, you don't have the education, upbringing, connections, manners, appearance, and good taste to ever become one of us. In fact, you'd probably need a book the size of the yellow pages to list all the unfair advantages we have over you. That's why we're so relieved to know that you still continue to believe all those silly fairy tales about "justice" and "equal opportunity" in America.

Of course, in a hierarchical social system like ours, there's never been much room at the top to begin with. Besides, it's already occupied by us — and we like it up here so much that we intend to keep it that way. But at least there's usually someone lower in the social hierarchy you can feel superior to and kick in the teeth once in a while. Even a lowly dishwasher can easily find some poor slob further down in the pecking order to sneer and spit at. So be thankful for migrant workers, prostitutes, and homeless street people....

....
Always remember that if everyone like you were economically secure and socially privileged like us, there would be no one left to fill all those boring, dangerous, low-paid jobs in our economy. And no one to fight our wars for us, or blindly follow orders in our totalitarian corporate institutions. And certainly no one to meekly go to their grave without having lived a full and creative life. So please, keep up the good work!

You also probably don't have the same greedy, compulsive drive to possess wealth, power, and prestige that we have. And even though you may sincerely want to change the way you live, you're also afraid of the very change you desire, thus keeping you and others like you in a nervous state of limbo. So you go through life mechanically playing your assigned social role, terrified what others would think should you ever dare to "break out of the mold."

Naturally, we try to play you off against each other whenever it suits our purposes: high-waged workers against low-waged, unionized against non-unionized, Black against White, male against female, American workers against Japanese against Mexican against.... We continually push your wages down by invoking "foreign competition," "the law of supply and demand," "national security," or "the bloated federal deficit." We throw you on the unemployed scrap heap if you step out of line or jeopardize our profits. And to give you an occasional break from the monotony of our daily economic blackmail, we allow you to participate in our stage-managed electoral shell games, better known to you ordinary folks as "elections." Happily, you haven't a clue as to what's really happening — instead, you blame "Aliens," "Tree-hugging Environmentalists," "Niggers," "Jews," Welfare Queens," and countless others for your troubled situation.

We're also very pleased that many of you still embrace the "work ethic," even though most jobs in our economy degrade the environment, undermine your physical and emotional health, and basically suck your one and only life right out of you. We obviously don't know much about work, but we're sure glad you do!

Of course, life could be different. Society could be intelligently organized to meet the real needs of the general population. You and others like you could collectively fight to free yourselves from our domination. But you don't know that. In fact, you can't even imagine that another way of life is possible. And that's probably the greatest, most significant achievement of our system — robbing you of your imagination, your creativity, your ability to think and act for yourself.

So we'd truly like to thank you from the bottom of our heartless hearts. Your loyal sacrifice makes possible our corrupt luxury; your work makes our system work. Thanks so much for "knowing your place" — without even knowing it .
