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 …
Anyone been there? A dream environment for a virus, specially in winter. Closely packed tables, muggy with no airflow and very, very popular.
I'd advise anyone there post lunch on that day to watch their health like a hawk.
Yes, it is a busy local. They restructured their cafe, put perspex between diners and limited numbers of seats. They also came out with a detailed post yesterday on social media after they had been advised that some of their staff and patrons had been exposed.
they are a local fixture in Rotorua and are your quintessential quirky NZ cafe/pup grub no nonsense family cafe/eatery.
10/10 would stop there for a coffee if i were to go to Rotorua if travelling under no restriction.
raise of infections coincides with spending in restaurants. We are going to be take away / online order for a long time.
edit: added link hit enter to soon.
So our deputy PM gets his info from a reporter !! Why is NZ under these current restrictions? Perhaps our Jacinda & Ashley should stop stuffing up the country and talk to Winny !!! He knows best
"New Zealand’s deputy prime minister, Winston Peters, is on ABC TV talking about the recent surprising resurgence of coronavirus in his country.He says he hasn’t heard through officials but through a “very reliable” NZ journalist that a quarantine system breach led to the new cases after 102 days."
Not actually saying that a breech caused the current out break – is he?
ianmac YES HE IS – based on what he is quoted as saying
"He says he hasn’t heard through officials but through a “very reliable” NZ journalist that a quarantine system breach led to the new cases after 102 days."
– So I gather he IS saying the outbreak is FROM a BREECH 😱-
take a sedative mate – and adjust the tinfoil hat
Winston Peters and 'very reliable journalist' are mutually exclusive I would have thought
Winston Peters is such a spanner. On the same day he bags Collins for spreading misinformation, he does exactly the same thing himself.
Media, report that you useless rabble!
JA should fire him tomorrow morning for doing that interview. Imagine that….
I am only speculating here in the spirit of Gerry Brownlie. And I am only asking, that is all.
Is it pure coincidence that Gerry B asked repeatedly if it was pure coincidence that Govt changed its attitude on masks and warned about new Covid infection just days before it all actually happened?
Is it pure coincidence that even now, Winston (a former National party MP) claims to have knowledge from some journalist – (knowledge which the Govt by implication should also have, but must be withholding from us, just as Winston now implies, thereby supporting Gerry's earlier incinerations – which is insinuations for those of you with no sense of humour) ??
Is it not possible that it was actually Gerry who knew when the outbreak would happen, and moved in advance to make said incinerations against Govt?
Of course, I am no conspiracist, and would never make incinerations myself.
I am only asking questions, and feel sure that if anyone should question my motives, Judith Collins would rush to my defence, and describe such questioning as shameful. (I heard her defend Gerry that way in the Kim Hill interview this morning.)
Only asking questions, and harmlessly speculating, as one does…
Herodotus (2) … just read the report from Peters.
OK, now he needs to reveal the name of the"very reliable source" journalist who passed on the 'quarantine leak' information to him, for the sake of transparency and clarity! Or will he play his stupid attention seeking 'it's for me to know and for you to find out' BS, which is his usual MO? I suspect this will be the case.
Who is his go to journalist?
Clearly, quarantining is difficult. Is it too difficult?
We are being asked to pay another very heavy price for the sake of taking in huge numbers of stragglers from parts of the world which simply don't give a shit.
If we are to be locked down for another month I say close the border to all arrivals until further notice.
We can’t keep doing this. No only are level changes hugely disruptive, but the message gets diluted so much so there may as well not be a level system at all.
Today's highlight for me has been the creative IMDB 'reviews' of the Ardern and Bloomfield briefings that have got some people's knickers here so twisted: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12511606/reviews
I hadn't seen those before, some of them are brilliant!
Then we have Helen Clark Rob Fyfe John Key saying we should have private companies running quarantine.Opening our borders .

That was very clever / funny.
I suppose Ardern's party wouldn't be so snarky but… putting the Electoral Act notification for campaign material on at the end of the Covid update, see if it causes conniptions.
Heh, and make it the Nat party's details.
Many of the reviewers are critical of the dialogue/casting of the the press players.
'……..This fury builds as the supporting cast playing the scrum peppers them with questions, and I feel that the climax of this conflict might bring surprises. These supporting actors let the casting director down, tho. But the dialogue is poorly written, so that might be why they are so ham-handed and unbelievable.'
Paul Little in one of the Aussie papers
As usual Gordon Campbell goes right to the core
"The question has arisen as to whether PM Jacinda Ardern is exploiting the advantages of incumbency. Really ? If there are advantages of being in the hot seat during a once in a century pandemic, it is only because Ardern and her team have created them by already demonstrating their competence. ( In Victoria right now, state premier Dan Andrews probably isn’t all that thrilled about the advantages he’s allegedly enjoying from being the incumbent.) In fact, if National had been in power and had put into practice the ‘soft lockdown” policies it has consistently advocated – which have failed dismally in Australia – we would currently be looking at a much higher death toll, and hearing a lot of sympathetic clucking from the media about the liabilities of incumbency during a global pandemic."
Goodbye Judith and Gerry

That does suck but people are obviously racing to get tested. Also big thanks to all those people working their arses off right now, testing tracing, phoning, containing. Appreciated.
Gerry tomorrow "How has this happened, we didn't have any last week, now we've tested we have more, how is this possible, no one told us how this is happening, it seems to "magically" attract itself from person to person, I just find this very convenient, just sayin' ".
"I'm that confused"
