NZ Rugby penalised $280,000 for not placing 40% woman on its board

NEWS LINK HERE – NZ penalised $280,000 for not reaching gender diversity targets on its board

NZ government mandated 40% women on boards quota by December 2021.

You know, there is a lot of laws being passed by Ardern I do not agree with.

How about just choosing the best person for the job?

If it were me, I’d just carry on and say stick ya money where the sun don’t shine.


  1. TRUST is Character and COMPETENCY – and Competency is REPUTATION.

    If we promote people based on race, gender politics and ignore COMPETENCY we lower the TRUST and WEALTH of this nation and that is precisely what this Govt is doing.

    Incompetence leads to mistakes, and errors and innocent people being harmed – and that is our story.

    When we merged Traffic with Police, we significantly lowered the COMPETENCY of the NZ POLICE and look at the mess we now have. Criminals run riot as good law abiding people are hunted down for debts on the back of victimless crimes and revenue collection.

    Police acted on Lies and False accusations which can no longer be challenged as they once were – never checking motive for the complaint, never checking or authenticating evidence or facts, never questioning the mental health of those who lied to them.

    This all only benefits the lawyers who then make a fortune in civil courts where good people are forced to go to unravel the mess.

    We see consistently that incompetence is being promoted – bullies can remove competition by good people simply by spreading a lie and or rumour without consequence so we are ruled by bullying uncaring psychopaths who are also incompetence – what a great formula for success NZ.

    If you have a different opinion or ask a question the cancel culture mob are sent to destroy you on social media – many now easily triggered on the back of a lie or a rumour.

    Protect yourself from reputation attacks and false accusations and get the job you deserve because you are COMPETENT and not interested in nepotism or gender politics. Know the tactics and defend yourself from hidden oppression and persecution which is a crime against humanity like torture child and elder abuse and others harm to the vulnerable which seems to be accepted in NZ today.

  3. I have a friend whose daughter was not accepted into med school despite achieving well above the acceptance grade. She later learnt the acceptance grade was lowered to be more inclusive. My lawyer has said the same thing is happening for law school applications.

  4. That’s a lot of money, they don’t get.
    While they are clearly, trying to address the issue.
    It’s not like rugby has fired women, to hire men.
    But to be compliant, they must now fire a man.

    What if the rules changed, to be race as well.
    Not only gender, but race percentage also compulsory.
    Boards falling short, must fire a person on race.
    Where does this stop, is it religion next.

  5. @1

    You feel attacked. People are pointing at you and whispering — some of them total strangers, some people you know. People you thought were your friends seem to be avoiding you lately. You hear that you’re being gossiped about. You’re being lied about. You start to feel like an outcast in your own social group.

    I hope you never experience this, but if you do, there’s a good chance you’re the victim of a narcissist’s smear campaign. They spread lies about you and bash you in an attempt to tear you apart from the people and places you love.

    Narcissists recruit others to spread the lies, to actively participate in the damage to the target’s reputation. The psychological term for these associates (I kid you not) is flying monkeys.

    Narcs love to buddy up to anyone with a badge or the equivalent power. They play the victim, painting you as a threat who has them living in constant fear. One day you show up to a place you’ve been going for years, and — boom, you’re persona non grata.

    Police officers/lawyers/judges: These are people who can legally prevent you from being in the places you desire/need to go. They can accomplish this in a variety of ways — authorizations of agency, protective or restraining orders, or threats to arrest for disorderly conduct or similar petty violations.

  6. @5 Had my own little experience of this last week. I volunteered to provide transport for school sports. My ex had also offered her services. She pulls out after I advise I will be taking my daughter (it’s my week with the children).

    The school politely declines my services and I’m not even allowed to transport my own daughter. I go to the sports day anyway so that my daughter will have the memory that her Dad was there supporting her.

    But my reputation with the school (a school I attended in the 1980s) is ruined. All due to her allegations. The stigma sticks like mud.

    Your choice is to fight or flee. You don’t sound like a flee type of person.

    If you flee she will still keep hammering away at your relationship with the teachers, the school councillors and anyone else who knows you.

    I do not know the reason the school gave to decline your transport. I suspect it may be something like, “no thanks, we have enough transport.” I would email back and place the school and teacher on notice.

    Dear (teachers name),

    Thank you for writing. Please put me at the front of the que for student transport next sports session. I understand this is next on (date).

    As you may be aware (childs name) and her mother and I are separated. I have become aware there may have been some ongoing parental alienation and hostile narcissism against me to the school.

    It is important for you and the school to accept that it is vital for the wellbeing of my child for me to take an active and complete roll in supporting (childs first name) activities.

    Because I place such importance in the wellbeing of (childs first name) should this not eventuate I will have no option but to take matters to the relevant Ministries.

    I will be attending the sports day.

    Thank you for your understanding. I look forward to meeting you at the next parent / teacher meeting, where I may be able to lightly discuss matters further.

    This letter is legally privileged to the persons and organisations it is addressed and copied to.

    Yours faithfully,
    cc. (Head teachers name)
    Minister of Education
    Ministry for Children
    (your lawyers name)

    This letter will cause action to resolve matters to your satisfaction and put your ex back in her box. Award her the destructive person she is.

    It might be better to come from your lawyer. In any case, run it past your lawyer.

    I call on other group members here to polish it.

  8. Its hard work, doing the sports thing.
    Practice days, and the Saturday.
    It is a commitment, of time.
    In my case, I didn’t get the commitment.
    So rare my memory is full, of things they missed.
    I missed out completely, in my first sons life.
    And I think sadly, his mother never got him to do sport.

    Practice day, is very boring.
    Often I’m one of few fathers, with young children.
    More obvious, when the daughter did gymnastics.
    So one must ask, where are all the fathers.
    Worse for a town full of kids, with so few teams.

    Saturday is something else, far more entertaining.
    Not once have I not laughed, felt pride and a little shock.
    Hidden amongst it all, is priceless moments.
    When they score the goal, then look for you.
    Unlike with myself, there good moments are shared.

  9. Quote
    Dame Patsy Reddy has become the first female Chair of New Zealand Rugby (NZR). She was elected Chair at NZR’s final Board meeting of the year in Auckland today and will replace outgoing Chair Stewart Mitchell who said the timing was right to step down in the new year after nine years on the Board.
    End Quote

    And that’s how you fix that.

  10. We can expect arguments, about participation in other things.

    Will all these projects, be subject to similar tests.
    How many women are selected, vs men.
    Maybe with tourists, can men afford it more often.
    It’s a very short term view, of humans in space.

    Imagine a maned trip to the asteroids, taking decades.
    Such ships wouldn’t be so inert, with just crew.
    Relationships inevitable, children inevitable.
    The argument is far more, than just a percentage one.
    Humans must learn, how to have society in space.
    How do you deal with, a relationship breakdown.
    Is it even possible, for the baby to survive growing up.

    When the spaceship docks, the hardest decision is made.
    Which parent, gets to have the child.
    One parent going one way, one the other.
    The other parent, maybe never seeing the child again.

    Technically if colonisation, was the intention.
    For example, a trip to another star.
    You would have more females, than men.
    Killing more boy babies, having more girls.
    So when you arrive, at your destination.
    And finally, have access to resources.
    You can expand quickly, in population.

    Does the article dictate, crew by identity.
    Projects must be compliant, with representation.
    The correct crew for the task, secondary to identity.

    Soon there will be towns, even cities on the moon.
    A few thousand years from now, the arguments look silly.
