No Minister


This one resulting in the son of good friends taking his own life after his self employment in an activity very closely linked to the now defunct international travel sector hit the wall.

The combination of advanced years and health issues leaves more lives in increased danger.

The awful decline in mental health issues and treatment after four years of maladministration by The Silly Little Girls incompetence must also be seen as contributing along with a Bank still to get with the “Kindness” meme.

Building a better, kinder, more supportive country has a distinct serious deficit hitting where it hurts from where I sit to type this.

  1. Jacinda punched down on the KFC worker, was then found to have been wrong in smearing that worker. She simply doubled down, and never apologised or retracted,

    And now she has once again punched down on a MIQ worker, jumping the gun while the investigation is still underway, and blamed the pawn instead of the queen.

    People are finally starting to wake up to the whole “kind” charade. The frowning/smiling/handwaving/virtue-signalling and talking-like-one-is-addressing-children schtick is finally starting to wear thin with the credulous dimbulbs that voted for this silly little girl.

  3. It was always just a marketing slogan, but very clever.

    Hitler was clever in not letting Goebbels run the country but in our case the person with the supposed Marketing /communications degree is, and it shows.

    But the voting public swallowed it, just as the farmers did, so good for Labour… very clever. As you say GD the bill hasn’t come in yet, but when it is presented for payment its going to be a whooper!!

    I’ve been in business for 35 years growing my own business’s, its a lonely, hard track that only fellow travellers understand. Even in the good times self doubt creeps in and there has been many a time when the darkness has closed in on me.

    My father in law ran a farm as did his son and they both said the same thing. There are many farmers out there who have to bear the burden of running their own business by themselves.

    In your friends case it was something you cant control, but that is a fact of life in business.

    There is always an answer and that is what is so sad about this case but when the darkness is upon you it is not easy to see the light.

    So many people around me have started out and failed. As they say, cash is king, even if you have the big idea, start small, horde cash like there is no tomorrow. So many see the first big sales and go out and buy the big flash car.

    You dont need a flash car, or gold plated premises to start because you never know when some asshole is going to shit on you. And you still have to pay the bills.

    Due to some do gooders Mental Health is just part of the general health system, probably a poor cousin in a fight for resources where its just another bed. And another causality of the over hyped, mis represented flu “Pandemic”

  4. So very sorry to read this. It might be too soon, for your friends, but if you’re looking for something that might help them, this is the best resource I’ve found for people whoa re grieving and those supporting/helping them.

  5. Thankyou people both here and messaging for the supportive comments, by far the closest association with a suicide for me in my decades even those dealt with in my bambo days were easier to cope with.

    • MOD: Deleted because of the usual abuse of GD that you have engaged in for years and FFS – you use the great theoretical boogeyman of “Russell Fletcher”. A blog rumour from a decade ago: how pathetic do you want to be in 2021?

      BTW – your email address of…
      … was an outstanding piece of literary craft.

      Truly. People I’ve shown it to today have laughed and laughed. You and the Lefty ideology you represent are moving forward to a bright and sunny future, “Judge”

  7. I read the other day that suicide levels were down in NZ in 2020, which I anecdotally find hard to believe. Yes I know that anecdotes do not make facts but in the last year I have indirectly (relatives of friends, associates etc) known 7 people who have committed suicide. All of them it was the lockdown and affect of the lockdown on them that was the cause of them committing suicide. Probably 50% were already depressed before and the lockdown was the last straw, but the others outwardly had been OK before.

    Condolences to your friends family.
