Luxon also said capitalism lifted 2b people out of poverty in the last 20yrs. Forgot to mention that most of them were in China, doesn't suit his narrative. I thought Tame was soft on him.
If you can get through the slow first episode, this is well worth watching. Remember this outfit is not limited to the USA. https://www.netflix.com/nz/Title/80063867
Anyone who's been awake and listening for the last few months should know that vaccinated people can catch and transmit Covid. But less likely, with less severe effect* *Pending Omicron research
This short 4 point thread hits the nail on the head https://twitter.com/CateOwen/status/1467217169364635651
I stayed in night in Cromwell, outskirts, didn't wander into the town. And the SH system doesn't go through the CBD as such. But mine host was adhering to level 3 restrictions, her personal choice as an ex-midwife. She is concerned what may happen over ...
had you visited Wanaka – there are a number of "anti"s there who are making a point of arguing the toss when asked by kindly shopkeepers (me) to mask-up for the good of all. Does not surprise me, which is why I qualified my note. There are a large number ...
Been in Central Otago the last two days (not Queenstown/Wanaka) and mask wearing was interesting. In some places there were a large number wearing masks 'between' shops, in other places 0. In all shops it was near 100% Despite the lack of Covid here I am ...
The vaccine mandates are in place to protect the health system and everybody in New Zealand. Including, ironically, the unvaccinated, although they will mostly not understand that because many of them think the pandemic is a hoax.
Tamki's March's were Mad Max.
The Family is worth watching. Get through the slightly tedious first episode, after that it's quite chilling.
Daily non-cuddle moments. Funny. Being CEO is like being a mafia boss. Any non-cuddling moment tasked to underlings. Cuddle moments (read: PR) are done by the CEO
Early days, has a lot to learn about interviews. He does come across as slippery #2
he hasn't been to a church in five years. Listen carefully, qualified that by saying 'not a conventional church' and the interviewer never picked that up
I stand with the nurses in their fight against the EU, UK, Switzerland, Norway, and Singapore. These governments must be investigated for blocking a faster global vaccine rollout leading to the loss of countless lives. https://twitter.com/ProgIntl/status/...
Neil didn't have global vaccinations in mind when he wrote this ... the title of the song now has relevance in a much wider sense. Less damage to mankind through disease, but a fragmentation on the fringes of social cohesion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
Read that again. The full sentence makes that clear. ....as a devout homophobic wife beating creationist christian, you think that people should be eternally punished for...
I kept this quote from someone on twitter a few weeks ago. So true. There is certainly an enormous amount of antipathy among older men in conservative circles about Jacinda. Way beyond what any impartial analysis would indicate. I agree it is largely ...
English also rorted the MP's housing allowance by claiming his primary residence was in Dipton. The 'double dipper from Dipton' - just another parasite
There must be a number of 'anti-vaxxers' who are stuck in that position through pride and a reluctance to 'back down' Having dug themselves a big hole through their early bold, loud and strong statements to friends, colleagues, etc., that they were unsure ...
Lord Jackson misled the country over the timeline and much more regarding the infamous “Hobbit Affair” when he put the US film industry’s needs well before local workers. I will never spend a penny on him for this
I had to double check the author of that article. Bryan Cadogan, Clutha Distict Mayor, also wrote about the rhetoric . . Rancid racial rhetoric mean we're missing the actual problem with Three Waters https://www.stuff.co.nz/southland-times/opinion/...
This is not encouraging. https://twitter.com/dgurdasani1/status/1459245078543802376
It's a pandemic. Nothing is, or should be, written in stone.
Worms alright. CrowdStrike one of Russiagate's 'biggest culprits': ex-House investigator. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4p2rtZI1-UE
I don't think they boxed themselves in if everyone doesn't reach the 90% milestone. I thought they left wiggle room to go to the traffic light system if some were close enough.
Putin. An adult on the world stage, along with Merkel. Sorry to see her retire.
