Daily review is also your post.
This provides Standardistas the opportunity to review events of the day.
The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).
Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
"On Tuesday, March 30, we lodged a series of questions to the Minister of Immigration Kris Faafoi, seeking answers to allegations that 10 Chinese workers, who were detained in custody pending deportation orders, were in fact victims of a human trafficking scam."
Why the obvious reluctance from the Government and its agencies?
Martyn Bradbury is definitely against opening the stopcocks of alcohol and see more money and character flowing into the barrels of the providers. I agree, alcohol has held NZ back and fuelled many violent incidents and takes money out of families' pockets which is the its always been for poor people.
Angry Christian Boozer, Labour MP Kieran McAnulty, demands more booze!
“I went to mass on Easter Sunday and if I wanted to have a pint with my family afterwards, I should be able to”,…
The damage booze causes every single year in NZ is $7.5billion dollars worth of social harm….
McAnulty is considered a ‘rising star’ in the labour Party which suggests the Labour Party doesn’t have a functioning definition of the word ‘star’ or ‘rising’.
Fuck the booze barons and their enablers.
Maybe McAnulty's proposals would go someway to moderating or managing the sort of alcohol induced harm that occurred in my town last Saturday night. It was like going back to the 60's. Archaic laws bring archaic behaviour.
Maybe baby. Graeme that sounds like a childish idea to me. Trust the punters they know what they are doing? The women back in colonial days set up the Temperance Society out of despair at preventing the men and some women from getting addicted. They succeeded but there needed to be a change in the drinkers' habits. Unfortunately marijuana took up all the slack for demonising and all ages and genders are ripe to be ripped off by alcohol now. It plays havoc with people's characters I know.
He has got my attention for showing what he thinks is important or good for the country. Rates real high on my list for priorities.
Will Australia be the next country to temporarily halt travel from India?
Once the trans Tasman bubble is up and running travellers from both countries are going to be a day away on any given day from a 14 day isolation when a Covid-19 case/s are in the community. I do not even have the expectation of the start date for a trans Tasman bubble. People take a gamble when it comes to international travel and then they are surprised when they hit lose.
It makes a mockery of the pre flight testing if so many are arriving with covid.
Maybe that's why India has been singled out.? There system ain't working
The exposure on the flight is a big issue. I would like to know what swabs taken from an aircraft toilet detect.
Nope, you may have the wrong end of the stick. Sequencing results seem to suggest that travellers were being infected in India before the flight and no in-flight transmission has been detected yet.
People who are infected prior to boarding would they not increase the risk of transmission during a long haul flight?
Yes, but early on most cases are less infectious because of lower viral load.
Beuracrats involved and from two different countries. There will be something negative and unforseen happen in the ditch bubble.
At least Western Australia has no surprises. That is a positive thing.
