Seems to me those of us most upset about the class seesaw are those from the Yang side of the tracks that knuckled down and got degrees, now sit under fluros. Others laid drives. 1000's of them. There is nothing a drive-layer likes more than rolling up to ...
Thanks Anne I will look to drop un more oftne. Miss you guys!
As a former MP for New Lynn who loves it still, I just want to register my shock and sadness that this has happened, my utter abhorrence of the cowardly attack on unarmed shoppers, and my deep sympathies to those injured and their familes. As The Standard ...
Yeah, yeah, yeah overseas cabin fever is old news. In NZ we are still here because we’ve had a horrendous vaccine stroll out. Worst in the OECD. There is no escaping that unless you are an absolute Jacindafobe. [Banned for a month for ignoring Moderation ...
Wow, an emerging story this evening with sketchy details that we have abandoned Afghanistan and not rescued a single one of the 36 interpreters Minster Faafoi declined to give a visa to in July. Lets hope against hope this isn’t true and that yet another ...
Sure, we’ve got a world class vaccine rollout …
If we have limited vaccine supply and Auckland has to shoulder this, the nationwide vaccine rollout should be halted forthwith and all vaccines diverted to Auckland for the foreseeable future. 😉
Haha. Thats why the PM felt the need to apologise at her 1PM standup yesterday! Did you read the link? Doh
Thanks for the proof. Apologies Guessing lack of further comments you’re okay with the rest of the message.
Haven’t you heard? https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/graham-adams-is-jacinda-ardern-the-messiah-or-just-a-very-crafty-politician/OX6JWIDJE2TA2RSCXVGMJVH77Q/ Or just a very crafty politician?
Then the devil delta came knock knock knocking at the Crown Plaza and we said welcome in. The PM said we’ll deal with it. Then knock knock, I’m back. No worries the messiah will hold back the tide. We believe. We all believe here.
Like I said, truely visionary. Only one to think we can keep delta at bay. Messiah type qualities. Next we’ll see the boomer bike bridge from Birkenhead is redundant. No need for it. Our PM will simply part the seas.
Our PM is amazing, we won’t have a bad word said against her on this site. She is the only one in the world to have the foresight to suggest we can eliminate delta. Truely visionary.
Unlikely, but I've taken the liberty of giving the PM a hand with her speech from the podium for tomorrow: tena katoa katoa I want to start with some great news Aotearoa. We now have 5000 trained Labour propaganda distributors. Yesterday during Level 4 we ...
I believe saline solution is the alternative to Pfizer being used, not cold tea.
Sorry I’ll have to give up on you and cut you loose. A select committee is not parliament!
A spark of light might have come on in your second paragraph McFlock. The Red Blooded One still seems all at sea. Apparently everyone else can do zoom, but Ardern is a bit special and needs to cancel rather than move to the virtual world.
Are you advocating we do away with Parliament? I guess it’s an option. History is littered with countries that have given that option a go.
Jeepers, you really are slow aren't you! Parliament TV is in no way a replacement for Parliament. It's TV for goodness sake! MPs can't interact with it. Most everyone else has been able to conduct business via Teams, Zoom or some other forum. Meanwhile ...
Yawn! This is not Parliament!
Point is Parliament TV is not a replacement for debate in the house / over a virtual forum! It is a way to the public to watch. No more, no less.
Adern can chair an APEC leaders summit virtually but apparently not a democracy.
Is anyone still listening to that crap? We are out walking at 1pm. Just tune in to any website to get the case numbers, 17 minutes of waffle avoided.
No need. Pretty much all the rest of the western world is already doin’ it.
Imagine one day moving to this level of discussion in New Zealand rather our current binary dialogue https://www.bbc.com/news/health-58270098
Anyone need toilet rolls out west? Meh, more pressing priorities dude https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2021/08/coronavirus-west-aucklanders-bought-a-weekend-s-worth-of-booze-in-the-hours-before-lockdown-began.html
It’s Friday evening … it’s time to do what Frankie said 😉
Yep, all the pollies high tailing it out of Auckland to Wellington before the lock down was announced … gotcha
An interesting insight on how this cluster might have started - MIQ 20m from a vaccine centre with an exercise yard next to CRL, a large office block and a public walkway. Perfect. https://www.newsroom.co.nz/public-walkway-rubs-shoulders-with-miq
