  2. Well another day in the battle for saving our businesses.
    Not a lot of help in the mini budget yesterday. Plenty won’t fit any criteria.

    Beneficiaries do ok.

    The lies continue.

    The northern link in Tauranga is supposed to be on again.
    Privately the word is that the NZTA people in Tauranga have no idea what is happening.
    Still trying to resolve the abandonment of the previous contracts. Money needs paying. The Taniwha needs feeding and so on.

    Its all about window dressing.
    All about helping the poor, of which there is going to be many thousands more, if this goes on for long.
    Batten down the hatches all round.

    • That fat lady perched on the hand rail is extremely lucky ,she could drink all day long and get rat faced as F- – – K and never have to worry about falling on her face,although if she slept in that position the fire brigade would have to be called in the morning to separate her arse from the rail.

  3. Coronavirus: Government’s economic package five out of 10, cap limits support for businesses – Simon Bridges
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/03/coronavirus-government-s-economic-package-five-out-of-10-cap-limits-support-for-businesses-simon-bridges.html

    In response, the Government has revealed a $12.1 billion economic package, which, among other measures, includes $500 million for the health sector and $5.1 billion in wage subsidies.

    Despite giving it only a five out of 10, Bridges says there are some “really good” aspects of the economic package.

    “We have been calling for job support and there is some job support there at a level, so that is good. Here comes the other side and why it is five and not 10, effectively, there has been confused priorities,” he told The AM Show.

    • In my opinion job support, increasing welfare, subsidising wages etc is a total waste of time and is simply announced to make people think the government has a plan for dealing with this pandemic.

      A paltry $500 million for the health sector shows that these idiots are totally out of touch with reality.

      When the Wuhan Flu gets a grip on New Zealand there will be an exponential rise in infections and a resultant skyrocketing increase in treatment facility demand. The majority of people infected will probably have a really bad case of flu-like symptoms and will be able to stay at home and look after themselves and recover naturally. But there will be a HUGE number of people who will require hospitalisation and I reckon that’s where the big problem lies. Our hospitals face the prospect of being literally literally overwhelmed. As it is, it’s bad enough in the typical A&E during the flu season, but I hate to think of what our health system will look like when we have hundreds of new cases being diagnosed daily.

      And, talking of diagnosis, it seems that it’s really difficult even now to get yourself tested. Surely this should be one of the basics?

      I think the priority should be to immediately set up a dedicated and far reaching testing regime ($2 to 3 billion) and launch it across the whole country, maybe as a mobile Labtests kind of operation. In conjunction with this, serious moves should be made to ramp up our hospitals’ capability to handle a stratopheric increase in demand which will hit in 3 to 4 months ($7 billion).

      Lets put $10 billion into testing and healthcare rather than waste money and effort in areas which are basically nothing more than feelgood propaganda.

      • Absolutely agree. I think it’s time for Bridges to show us if he’s suitable to be PM or not.

        He backed down when old frowny face started playing politics by accusing him of playing politics. The job of the opposition is to call out the government when they’re fucking up and offer a better alternative.

        There has never been a more insulting to the intelligence move by a government than to push out an ideologically driven benefit spend up and pretend it’s a fiscal stimulus, business rescue package. Skeletor’sSocialist Cindy’s argument was that it goes to people who will always spend what they get – and therefore the best way to spend the money to achieve stimulus. Which is of course an utterly retarded idiot’s logic – by the same token – increasing the benefit to $1 million dollars per week would work to stimulate the economy and the country into an uber-high wager economy – utterly contemptible that these fucking losers would try that on.

        But I suppose what can we expect from a lying liar?

        The beneficiary spend up was nothing more than ideological pork – it was the very definition of a low quality spend and will do nothing NOTHING to keep people in jobs (and as the great Ronnie reminded us “The best welfare program is a job”.

        I’m sick of these fuckers – I’m sick of the stupid sheep who fall for their lies.

        • if Bridges was anything lik,e me he would have said . You get to make choices as govt.and impose them on others. We get to criticise those choices and action and we don’t think the choices you have made are very good. So suck it up sweet heart cause we are goinbg to tell you what we thinkl. Like it or not. That’s what we get paid for.

          Or even harsher words to that effect.

  4. Ever the cynic, me.
    So a business can apply for wage assistance up to the cap of 150k. The govt pays them a lump sum (150k). The next day they let their staff go. Some of these businesses may have been only breaking even, or worse, to start with. It’s typical of the CoL to just throw money at a problem with no direction as to how it’s managed. Then they wipe their hands of it and say they’ve done their bit.
    It’s crucial this money is used to save jobs and the govt now have no control over that.

  5. Why is nearly 25% of the relief package on welfare? Beneficiaries are not going to be any worse off because of the virus. This is just the CoL following their agenda, but disguising it as part of the emergency package. Means they don’t have to put it in the budget. They really display their ineptitude when they assume this sort of thing will slip through under the radar.

    Leaders of the European Union have agreed to close the EU’s external borders for 30 days amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the planned border closures during a press conference on Tuesday (local time).

    On Monday (local time), French President Emmanuel Macron ordered all residents and non-residents to remain at home for up to 15 days, except for absolute essentials.

    • As far as I know, our friends are still flying out to Japan today, 2 teenage girls with them. Mind you I was talking with friends on the weekend who didnt seem to think that anything serious was going on. I said “FFS when was the last time you saw USA close down her borders?” Didn’t seem to make much of an impression on them, mind you they do vote Labour. He did then question me and ask if I thought it was serious, said he only knew what he had heard on the News. I lied and said nothing to worry about, By now he has probably realised that its slightly more serious than he has been told.
      However, the ones flying to Japan are National voters, I would have expected more common sense from them.

      I had not been in over a month or whenever.
      The Fruity geezer is seriously unhinged.
      It looks like he is trying to promote civil war on his own blog with the 4pm post yesterday.
      I won’t link. It is appalling nonsense.
      The Gen Debate had less comments than here 17 March.
      It looks like it dies after 5pm. Public service hours.
      Maybe he is deliberately killing it.

      I remember seeing him for the first time on one of those Sunday morning Teev politico shows about 2011. He seemed a weird, little, beady eyed dude. It seems he is that now.
      Was someone else running it for a few years?
      It went notably downhill circa March 2017. Not long after J Key left office.
      Was someone buying toys from China with lead paint on them, for his kid?

      Anyhow it provides proof that Ed did the right thing.
      [Can I get a $25 a week rise, Ed, y’know like a bene, pretty please, for saying that 🙂 ]

      A couple of posts of mine went into ‘awaiting moderation’ in the last few days. I could not see anything wrong. This had not happened in quite a while. They seemed to clear quickly.

    Coronavirus: More workers needed to support aging health sector, says Dr Lance

    “They’re not going to find them, they’re just not going to find them, 50 per cent of GPs are gonna be retired in the next 10 years.”

    Dr Lance O’Sullivan believes the health sector will need to look at how they assess patients, advocating for virtual “telehealth” consultation of patients.

    He says it would allow general practitioners to see more patients daily through virtual consultations.

  9. “TOKYO (AP) — The head of Japan soccer, who is also the vice-chairman of the Japan Olympic Committee, has tested positive for the coronavirus and apologized for possibly infecting others.” Ref: https://www.si.com/soccer/2020/03/17/kozo-tashima-japan-coronavirus-positive-uefa-olympics

    I have my doubts about the wisdom of Tokyo going ahead with this event.

    In the local Japanese news it has been reported that some 16 local prefectural governments around the country have cancelled pre-Olympic training camps within their jurisdictions. Meantime, Prime Minister Abe is hopeful that the Olympics will proceed as planned. (What else can he do?)
    Eventually, his hand will be forced and he will have to back down, I think.

Is he waiting for Cindy and her cohorts to stuff it up completely and them race in and save us all? Who knows, but as always with Winston there must be an angle somewhere. On a slightly different note, if you need a good laugh have a look at the front page of the Herald business section. there is a photo of a smarmy looking Robertson flanked by Lees Galloway and that idiot Clarke with Nash and Jimmy twomums in the background. If this is supposed to make feel confident it fails on every level. I can’t think of anything any of these lemons has accomplished, but I know of plenty of things each one of them has stuffed up.

  10. Lets get things in perspective over this virus. Who can remember the H1N1 virus and it’s affect on NZ in 2009 ?

    This is the summary : ” In 2009 New Zealand had 3,175 cases and 19 deaths due to swine influenza ”

    Did we turn the economy upside down ? ( NB. I am not having a go at the Government with that question).
    I am not suggesting we do not take it seriously and the elderly and those with a weak immune system should be helped and protected. We should promote safe practices for the general public. But lets turn the hysteria dial down a bit.

        If wishes could make it true. While I have little trouble understanding why we don’t make cars or mass produce computers in NZ I am less than enamoured over the halfwits who exported our food processing factories & the parts inventory for everything that moves to Australia & the ME. Our pork comes from Canada & we can’t bake a loaf of bread without importing flour.

        We can’t even produce the safety equipment the health sector will need & 95% of pharmaceuticals are manufactured in China or Chinese owned factories in India.

        Globalism has given us $2 shops full of junk & taken away our ability to feed ourselves or treat the sick.

        • The big Pharma are mainly USA and Swiss with a couple pf Brit and French companies coming in at 7 and 8.
          The Swedish used to be big in Pharma but like most of their successful industries they sold out.
          The patent owning companies are the ones who choose – like so many manufacturers – to have production in China.

          Pork used to be 60% local and 40% imported until that idiot Mike King went feral. I guess I am being wacist right now but F…em. He took money for years then went turncoat ’cause he got woke’.
          He never paid the money back despite his alleged ‘guilt’ yet seriously damaged an industry.
          In the USA he would have been sued for millions. Rightly so.
          If he just kept the money and zippered his gob it may have been better.
          Now, last I looked, it went 40% local and 60% imported.

          We do not have great wheat growing conditions and there is better land use in other items.
          I am not sure pine trees is one of them.
          Russia tries with wheat but does not have optimal conditions and sometimes has crop failures.

          The concentration of manufacturing in China has clearly impacted most countries.
          I remember buying some golf clubs in 2008 and saying I dont want made in China.
          The guy said: well you won’t be buying any golf clubs then.
          I did purchase a hybrid club last month that said shaft made in China but head and assembly in Vietnam. It is still offshore and predominantly Asian.

          Do people want manufacturing locally?
          I was in Newcastle, NSW last year for a week and talking to locals the BHP steel plant closed in 1999.
          Prior to that they had dirty air (coal fired) and could not hang out washing, had to wash down outdoor tables regularly etc. It was dirty.
          There is a trade off and balancing act required.

          • ……”There is a trade off and balancing act required.”……

            Maybe. Presently we have traded off self sufficiency & rely on four industries to pay some of the bills. Most years we run a trade deficit & the books only balance because we sell off our technology, industries & land. The lack of low skill manufacturing jobs has a terrible impact on our society.

            Less green wank & more dirty money might be the way to go.

    – We will no longer discuss [numbers] whether we have 458 or 562 cases. But instead how large parts of Sweden are affected and how hard they are, says Tegnell.

    It is, according to him, instead of looking at what it looks like in health care and how many cases that come in there. But also to look at which groups in society appear to be the sickest.

    – These are the kind of questions that will be central to answering. Now it is no longer important to know exactly how many people are infected in Sweden.

      https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/03/coronavirus-eight-new-cases-in-new-zealand.html

      Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said specific details about these cases would be shared later on Wednesday. He said the fact all new cases are associated with travel proves the worth of placing restrictions on travel.

      The 12th coronavirus case was recorded on Tuesday. As reported on Tuesday, they are a student at Dunedin’s Logan Park High School and the child of an infected man who recently returned from Germany. That school is now closed and undergoing cleaning.

      Dr Bloomfield said on Wednesday there are 150 close contacts for this individual. In addition to going into self-isolation, these individuals will be tested over the next day.

      So that is why the test on 150 at the school is being done as soon as.

      So the testing numbers is ramping up exponentially and as Kea so kindly points out, becoming more widespread.

      The distance sound of the guns, on the general’s command can be heard, and finally a day or 2 or more, later the casualty list will be listed in the newspapers of those times, and so the Passchendaele Battle unfolded, one of the Blackest Days for New Zealand.

Still, even now, Ardern says it a judgement call and up to doctors whether or not they decide to test. BS to that – test everyone who gets close enough to test. It’s started escalating in NZ now. Just hope the bastards are honest with us and keep us properly informed about the situation. I don’t want bloody Ardern deciding what’s in our best interest to be aware of, lest we panic. What’s making me panic is who’s in control of this cluster.

    “In the announcements yesterday we tried to put a bit of both in and get the balance right of immediate measures to support people and beginning to position ourselves for that recovery,” Robertson told The AM Show.

    Opposition leader Simon Bridges told The AM Show that while there are some “really good” aspects of the economic package, he’s not pleased about the $150,000 cap on how much money an employer can receive in wage subsidies.

    “If you are a business of over 20, not a small business, effectively you are not covered per employee, and I am talking with quite a number of businesses who will start laying off quite aggressively pretty soon.”

      Now Fonterra seems to be not quite going bankrupt now, maybe some nice gentle rain will this coming weekend give us a bit more than just a green tinge.
      Fill the dams.lift water restrictions, water in particular the vege gardens, irrigate the fields, as the plants take in that CO2, and many things in NZ will become sweet.

  21. Government kicks off massive flu vaccine campaign with 400,000 extra doses
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/government-kicks-off-massive-flu-vaccine-campaign-400-000-extra-doses?auto=6142127630001

    It’s hoped by preparing for the flu, it’ll help manage the damage for hospitals during the Covid-19 outbreak.

    As part of the push, around 400,000 more flu vaccines will be available this year compared to last year.

    It’ll be free for people who are pregnant, 65 or older, young children with a history of severe respiratory illness and people with certain chronic conditions, as well as healthcare workers.

    ‘the number of journalists in NZ has halved in 15 years’

    My thought:-
    What can we do to get rid of the other half?

    The number of Petrol stations went down by two thirds in the 20 years up to about 2005.
    Did these ‘journalists’ report on that?
    The number of cross ply tyres on the roads went down.
    That is a good thing.
    Just like a reduction in professional liars and cue card readers.

    We need farmers who produce food; not liars and whingers.
    And yet the dirtbags of media are always down on farmers…usually with massive lies.

    A bedda thing for Notional to have supported last year instead of Zero Carbon Bill is a Zero Journo Bill.

  25. Well fork me with a wooden spoon
    The media can now create hysteria and fear with just a little bit of truth.

    After creating fear and stress with massive lies in the last few years over globby warming and that ‘we all gonna die’ in 12 years unless we stop breathing
    (they are that stoopid; and fact checking is just not a thing)

    It must be real confusing for their teeny minds to have to show real scientists, actual medical doctors, and real country leaders instead of false prophets like a 16 year old girlie with autism.
    The Swedish Joan of Bark

    This cold and flu season must be a godsend to lying filth.

  26. Laugh of the day.
    On Monday, our intermediate school cancelled assemblies until further notice because of Wu-Flu.
    No surprises there, even if Kea thinks it’s a fancy head cold.
    This avo I opened my FB page to see a student who had volunteered to raise money by Shave For A Cure having all his hair shaved off for that worthy cause. Well done that young man. A hero.
    I like that and will tip some cash in the pot.
    But ..
    The video pans to all the tiered seating in the hall full of students supporting their colleague.
    Now in normal circumstances this would be a wonderful thing.

    When I called the school and asked what they were thinking not at least holding the event outdoors, they first said it happened before assemblies were cancelled, then that there had not been an assembly, then that there had not been any gathering of students.

    The video has now disappeared from FB, so that must be correct – it didn’t happen. And I’m a mushroom.

  27. The PTPM says we have the world’s strong measures being taken to fight the virus.
    BS. My wife has just heard from friends in Malaysia. They have blocked their boarders to EVERYONE –including Malaysians. So anyone on holiday or business out of the country when the ban was put in place –tough luck, stay away until the end of the month.
    Thousands of Malaysian travel over to Singapore and up to Thailand to work everyday and then back at night. Those people had 24 hours notice to decide what they wanted to do.

    Some maybe doing the “happy birthday” tunes prior to washing their hands could be a thing too, so that people do not over linger.
    Maybe this is the real reason why, the public health campaign “Be Kind, Wash and dry your hands”

    As Mike Hunty knows, the “bum gun” and probably many other tricks to get the bum clean.

    In New Zealand we may see another purpose for the “Armed Response Teams”.
    …… 911 reports from concerned callers convinced a neighbor’s overly loud sneeze or hacking cough is proof the person has the virus. …..
    …… many cases, the calls are forwarded to the fire department where paramedics are also dispatched to directly provide any needed medical attention before transporting the person to an area hospital.
    That it takes a lab test to determine whether a person is actually positive for the virus doesn’t matter. ……

      • Hi Ed,
        When this first was discussed, there was talk of ‘log in’ and I think even Facebook was mentioned.
        I am careful to not have any pro-Trump, anti-Trump, Brexit or comments on economic migrants, trans-women and the like on my personal Facebook. (Sometimes I wish I didn’t know other associates personal views on such things.)
        Outrage culture is scary for professional people.

        Now that it turns out no separate log in required, I am happy to have a play – for those polls of interest, and where the multi-choice is one I can tick.
        For instance, the options for self isolation don’t even include the successful Singaporean and Taiwanese innovations, like random video check ins and GPS on phones. There is no Other or None of the Above options, so I might skip answering such poll questions entirely.

      • I reckon earlier. I teach at a school with a large Pacifica community. It will spread like wild fire once it get established there. They are a very physical community in the way they greet one another and they have not stopped hugging and high fiving and hand slapping. They share a lot of food and drink. Now these are all admirable qualities, but not right now. They also have higher than average obesity, diabetes and many have already suffered from rheumatic fever. All these make them prime candidates for suffering badly if they get infected. That is why the schools should be closed NOW.

        • The PI community does not change habits easily.
          so social interaction and religious gatherings will not cease with any ease.
          Many Samoans esp the women keep the ‘old country’ traditions for decades.
          They are often still breeding as if half the family will be wiped out by a cyclone.
          Observation not criticism.

          I know a few Samoan guys. They try to move away from the religious side and the old superstitions.
          The women hold on to them.
          The men change often because they are working and mixing with new people.
          The women at home with lots of kids and tinamatua.

          As i recall the meningitis was (is) ten times more likely to infect a PI as a White person.
          Maori were three times AFAIR

      Looks like we’ve got the virus loose in the community.
      The person arrived in Samoa on a flight from New Zealand on Wednesday, March 11.

      The patient, an Auckland resident, is receiving care the TTM Hospital in Motootua.

      ​The Samoan government said the person flew to Samoa for a family occasion, but presented at the hospital on Wednesday morning after experiencing flu-like symptoms for two days.

  35. Fuji films report they have a anti virus that works.
    Confirmed by the Chinese (ha of course).

    TOKYO (Reuters) – Shares in Japan’s Fujifilm Holdings Corp (4901.T) surged 15% on Wednesday morning after a Chinese official said the company’s Avigan anti-flu drug appeared to help coronavirus patients recover.

    Avigan, also known as Favipiravir, is manufactured by a subsidiary of Fujifilm, which has a healthcare arm although it is better known for its cameras. The drug was approved for use in Japan in 2014.

    Favipiravir has been effective, with no obvious side-effects, in helping coronavirus patients recover, Zhang Xinmin, an official at China’s Science and Technology Ministry, told reporters at a news conference on Tuesday.
