Have you experienced inconsistencies from warrant inspectors?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Have you or someone you know experienced inconsistent WOF fails? Did the 'petrol leak' turn out to be non-existent or the lower front ball joint just need a clean to pass the inspection? We're working on a story as we know there's plenty of you out there who have failed a WOF when the vehicle could pass legitimately. Reply below and we may be in touch for you to tell your story.

Jimmy Carr at The Trafalger Centre.

Stephen from Motueka

I see the early promotion of Carr's tour of New Zealand has started with a Stuff article describing the shows "as being full of “adult jokes to an adult paying audience who’ve got a good idea what’s in store.” "
Apparently he is a very classy act. Apart from jokingly suggesting that the thousands of gypsies killed by the Nazis was a "good thing", he likes his rape alarm because it is a "good reminder". He then hilariously suggests that a better word than rape to describe a sexual attack would be to call it a "struggle cuddle". And there is more racist, sexist rubbish, lots more, in his stand up routines. All good "adult humour". Ho ho ho.
Why anyone would find his style of humour funny and pay good money to laugh at the objectionable hurtful filth he spouts beats me. He should be cancelled in my view, ideally from New Zealand in total, certainly from performing at a Nelson City Council owned venue.

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
