Goebels would be proud

From ysb “Goebels had nothing on her…. ( but have you looked closely at Images of Ardern and Goebels…. )

“On enforcement, Ardern said level 3 came with higher trust but there would still be police acting as enforcers which would act on large groups congregating.”

New Zealand will move to level 3 of lockdown from 11.59pm next Monday, April 27.

Alert level 3 will be held for two weeks and then Cabinet will assess whether to move down another level.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the announcement just after 4pm today. Cabinet wanted to “lock in some gains” and give some certainty, Ardern said.

Level 4 had originally been scheduled to lift on Thursday this week.

“Ultimately we have taken a balanced approach,” Ardern said.

Ardern said at every point along the way the Government’s decision was based on health and economic advice, and NZ was in the fortunate position that those were linked.

Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield recommended, in writing, that Cabinet make the decision it had made, said Ardern.

Any businesses needing to prepare to move into level 3 could be accessed, Ardern said, as could schools, to prepare for the return of pupils. April 28 will be a teachers’ only day and April 29 will be the first day of term.

On businesses accessing their premises, it wasn’t an invitation to open or trade, she said – just to prepare.

    • So true O-sen:

      Nazi – Stasi
      Commissioner – Gruppenfurher
      Ardern – Socialist Dictator With Little Discernible Intellect.

  3. Time for businesses to start permanently laying off staff. when this bullshit is finished hiring new people will come with a huge government wage subsidy in the name of a jobs growth package.

  4. Oh dear. Jacinda’s greatest supporters, teachers have started a petition demanding schools remain closed. Up to 29,000 signed in less than 2 hours.

    • The school closure is a hard one.

      Keeping the schools closed with hinder the spread of the virus, but the children’s education [cough, cough] will suffer, and their parents will be unable to work without childcare.

      • How many grandparents have been roped in as childminders for those essential workers who have small children? Family members have had to step in.

        • Yup, as a teacher, tell them to naff off. Your mental health is much more important than a few weeks of school lessons missed. Get the kids to do some reading and watch a few youtube documentaries on stuff they are interested in. Far less stressful and probably more valuable.

          • Most of the maths youtube clips are miles easier to understand than anything I ever tried learning at school or Uni.

      • Now you have ruined the friendship….. But it would be hard to argue not taking some cut when others are destitute.

  5. Of the Labour voters who lose their jobs, it’d be interesting to know what percentage (if any) would switch to the Nats. ( None are probably bright enough to switch to ACT. )

    If (say) a third of them switched their vote, that would be very useful for the Nats.

    • Sorry, i can give you that number in advance: ZERO!
      When something bad happens is always “somebody else fault” (nowadays, Trump, or the patriarchy, or whatever).

    • You’re dreaming, mate. None of this will stick to Labour or to Jacinda. They’re already rewriting her statements from 3 months ago, 2 months ago and even last month. Accountability is a subject at school; something to do with GDP for that lot.

  6. Living in central Hamilton I have noticed a number of police sirens going most nights and at times during the day and I wonder what they are doing? Domestic violence? Drugs? Can’t be car chases as there’s hardly anyone on the road. Is this the new version of life under this New new Zealand
