Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
The HDA interview with Minister Hipkins well worth searching out. Despite the pile on from him and the PM , he can’t actually identify which specific piece of advice the KFC worker did not comply with. In many cultures advice is black and white. On that basis the KFC worker appears to have complied with all of the 15 points of contact with officaldome. The PM pile on appears unjustified based on the Hipkin interview. He or she is due an apology from the PM.
Told to get tested, didn't?
Told to get tested, did!
According to the various models of the families that I have seen, L got tested after the family had gone into quarantine and that was after they had done their spell at KFC. By that time they were showing symptoms.
Before that they had a family member as a contact of the Papatoetoe student who subsequently tested positive. Are you saying the family members got tested between 17 & 19 February and had a negative test? As soon as the first person in the household tested positive for the virus they are in a different category to being contact of a school student.
After it was too late. Doh!
No. That is the problem David, they didnt get tested after being told to. The school sent out 3 letters but case L still went to work after 2 people in her household came down with symptoms.
In other words Case L (described as a woman but sounds more of a teenager) only took notice of what she wanted to hear/read and ignored the plethora of other advice including official advice which has been out there everywhere on a daily basis for the past 12 months which in a nutshell is:
If you are a contact of an infected person or you attended – or someone in your family attended – the same school, university, church, sports club, place of work, concert etc. or you were present at a particular venue or shop or mall or wherever at the same time as an infected person then go and get tested pronto and bloody well isolate for the next 14 days (or whatever it is) and if you need financial assistance get in touch with Winz.
This kid didn't do any of those things so what I would say to her is:
Stop making excuses. Its you who should be apologising not the other way around.
Did she not pick up on anything after 12 months of constant warnings coming from radio, TV, online social platforms. electronic billboards all over the place?
Nope. Doesn't wash with me. She's trying to pass the buck on some technicality.
She also admits going to work despite her sister showing symptoms but claims they weren't the right symptoms.
No, she is not.
The school closes and letters saying get tested went out, hallo?
Since when are we dumping self responsibility at the feet of the next person or any minister for that matter. What an utter copout. I have never seen such stupidity unless it is intentionally misleading saying that they haven't been told "specifically". That would be even worse.
Yep. Beggars belief that NACT are now conveniently casting aside their core ideology, personal responsibility, for political purposes.
If I was a betting person then I'd bet that 'case L' will get an apology from the PM when hell freezes over.
Perhaps opposition party leaders Collins and Seymour would be kind enough to issue an apology on behalf of parliament – they could also apologise to Bishop Tamaki while they're at it.
The link is self explanatory.
When will the PM just front up and apologie for the pile on?
After Case L apologises for going to work when her sister had Covid-19, I guess.
Insane. You'd have to be very, very stupid to do this.
Having said that, people do make mistakes. Case L needs to admit she made a mistake.
Go back to KB or wherever you come from.
Newshub is a third rate news outlet full of shock jocks who play gotcha politics for clickbait. They had some integrity once but not anymore.
Same story running in the Herald, RNZ and $1uff. Take your pick.
lol "growing calls". ohmagerd, Collins and Seymour are whinging about Ardern, again!
$1 Stuff. Yeah that's about what they're worth.
So what are peoples thoughts on the fact that a Dirty Politics long-running defamation case against former Whaleoil blogger Cameron Slater and PR man Carrick Graham is close to settlement?
It has been over 6 years now since the book came out.
I put a link in Open Mike to the article
The other obvious beneficiaries of National’s scheme are the employers and businesses who don’t have to top up their employees’ wages for a fortnight if they have to self-isolate. In fact, they don’t have to pay them at all!
What a lovely nice bonus for these employers and businesses thanks to National
