  1. On ya bike. Cindy finally demotes David Clark

    Coronavirus: Dr David Clark demoted, resignation offered after trip to beach during lockdown
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/04/coronavirus-dr-david-clark-demoted-resignation-offered-after-trip-to-beach.html

    “But he does need to pay a price. He broke the rules.

    “While he maintains his Health portfolio, I am stripping him of his role as Associate Finance Minister and demoting him to the bottom of our Cabinet rankings.

    “I expect better, and so does New Zealand,” Ardern said.

  2. Butchers, bakers can operate online, Jacinda Ardern says

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says butchers, bakers and grocers are able to operate online. This comes less than an hour after the Ministry of Business (MBIE) told 1 NEWS “no decisions have been made on this”.

    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/butchers-bakers-can-operate-online-jacinda-ardern-says

    Yesterday, National leader Simon Bridges told TVNZ1’s Q+A a “constructive conversation” was needed on whether contactless businesses should be able to run safely during lockdown.

    “When you think about our economy, the longer we see the devastation, the job losses, the businesses going under, it’s heart attacks, it’s mental health issues, it’s fatalities in its own way,” Mr Bridges told host Jack Tame.

    “Let’s try and deal with some of the randomness where one is an essential service and one isn’t, let’s be agile and potentially we can move to a more risk-based system.”

    I see the staff here are rushed off their feet and trying to maintain calm, all the while practicing safe distancing.
    The stress on the Lieutenants face says it all.

  4. Coronavirus: Queen Elizabeth sends personal message to New Zealand
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/entertainment/2020/04/coronavirus-queen-elizabeth-sends-personal-message-to-new-zealand.html

    With people instructed to stay indoors, limit non-essential movement, and not visit those outside of their ‘bubble’, the Queen also acknowledged the concerns Kiwis have for their family and friends, as well as the financial uncertainty created by the restrictions.

    “You are in my thoughts and prayers,” she wrote.

    “I send my enduring thanks to those who continue to put the service of others above themselves, whether by staying at home, providing essential services, or by caring for the most vulnerable.

    “It is through this sense of community, dedication and faith, that I am confident New Zealanders will rise to the challenge and overcome.

    “Kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui.”

    • “Thoughts and prayers”

      What a Goddamn Waste of Time!!
      Said in Samuel Jackson style.

      That is irrelevant.
      Actually insulting.

      Apparently she made a speech to Britain and someone stupidly broadcast it live on NZ TV.
      She made no mention of the Commonwealth
      It was for Britain

      This is now a patch up job to cover for the stupidity.
      It means nothing.
      It will all be from speech writers and staff.

      My sister is a lefty and royalist.
      I am neither.
      It must be their desire for unelected dictatorial leadership!
      She watched it and said it was not for the rest of us.
      She still has a plate of Chuck and Di on the wall and pictures and kitchen items with Willy n Kate gawking at you.

      Now they tack this on.
      It is tacky.
      From a tacky family.
      Her useless grandson running away with the half-caste Hollywood hooker like it was a remake of ‘Pretty Woman’; and her own son’s (Andy) use of hookers and sex slaves (allegedly).

      Philip the Greek was not getting any at home so had to use French hookers for his needs back in the 1970s. The English tarts cannot be discreet, apparently. No surprise.
      Phil and Lizzy have not lived together in decades and Phil has his mistress -which the MSM does not cover – just as Chucky had his mistress while married to Diana.
      They are a sick lot and I wonder why anyone gives them any admiration.

      They have never been in touch.
      They are a bunch of Euro/Krauts owning a fair whack of Britain.
      Hereditary titles are stupid.
      Leadership should be earned.
      Take an example of Hollyweird. There are kids of movie stars where the parents ‘made it’ on their skills but the kids are useless. Very few have the skills to match the ability of their parents.
      We saw it in NZ with Fletchers where Hugh was completely useless and the company imploded.
      The Saxe Coburgs are no better than any other family out there.

      Oh yeah, they are a bunch of Germans whose family name is Saxe Coburg with some Battenberg thrown in.
      They only changed the name three quarters of the way through WW1 when Britain was fighting their family and it looked like their family might lose when the Americans strolled in to help.
      Optics old chap.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Windsor
      The House of Windsor is the reigning royal house of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. The dynasty is originally of German paternal descent and was a branch of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, itself derived from the House of Wettin, which succeeded the House of Hanover to the British monarchy following the accession of King Edward VII, son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
      The name was changed from Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to the English Windsor (from Windsor Castle[1]) in 1917 because of anti-German sentiment in the United Kingdom during World War I.[2

      They are so fake the family name was made up 100 years ago from the house they lived in.
      Great leadership.
      Thought bubble:- Looks like the Anglos are going to beat our family with the help of those crass Yankees. We better improve the optics. Quick change the name and anglicise Battenberg to Mountbatten.

      Surely it is time the old bird stood down and let Willy boy take over.
      It would be a waste of time giving the role to Chucky to start a job for the first time when he is over 70 y.o. He wanted to be a tampon. Let him be a tampon. He was 44 years o age when he said that.
      It seems his old mummy does not want to stand down in her 90s because Chuck is a complete basket case that talks to trees.

      If she had any leadership she would stand down and let Willy boy fake it or make it.
      They have the optics.
      That lot is rather slow. If you are going to keep it in the family skip over the dodgy generation of Chucky and Andy. Isn’t Lizzy the Boss. Make the decision.

      They did not have the foresight to see a speech would be broadcast to the commonwealth and not bother to mention them.

      They are pretty useless at getting their shit sorted out (again, appalling optics from Lizzy to the Anglo subjects like when Diana entered a tunnel and never came out alive) and I have never understood the adulation of a person who got a job merely because of who her daddy was. And he only got his job because his brother went chasing American tail like Harry boy did.

      Old Lizzy’s artificial ‘Thoughts and prayers ‘ is the same useless PR crap that Ardern spouts.

      My aversion to royalty has not been diverted by this latest in so many cock ups.
      Rapey Andy [allegedly] his bug eyed daughters, and sweating on pizzas; cuck-boy Harry; crazy ‘tampon-man ‘Chuck.
      All in all the Saxe Coburgs are no better and no more deserving of admiration than any other family.

  5. While our Health Minister is missing in action Boris, who is hospitalised with CV-19 is still in charge as PM of Britain and working with his team to run the country.

    Coronavirus: Boris Johnson remains in hospital, no formal plan if incapacitated
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/04/coronavirus-boris-johnson-remains-in-hospital-no-formal-plan-if-incapacitated.html

    Johnson, 55, who tested positive for the virus on March 26, was taken to St Thomas’ Hospital in central London on Sunday night for “routine tests” with what Downing Street described as mild and then persistent symptoms.

    The Government’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said: “[Johnson’s] being given regular updates on developments, and he continues to lead the government”.

    His spokesman urged caution about media reports that Johnson was receiving oxygen treatment but refused to answer directly if he had pneumonia. Johnson, the government said, was still in charge of the government.

    “On the advice of my doctor, I went into hospital for some routine tests as I’m still experiencing coronavirus symptoms,” Johnson said on Twitter.

    “I’m in good spirits and keeping in touch with my team, as we work together to fight this virus and keep everyone safe.”

  6. ‪COVID-19 “Changes Everything” – Mark Cuban Welcomes “America 2.0”

    As we’ve also noted, the exodus from cities has already started. Many will want the comfort of home and land where they can protect their families, instead of riding out months-long lockdowns in a 550 square foot studio apartment in a dirty city filled with viruses. Another big trend that will continue to push people out of cities is that many employers have just found out that much of their workforce can work remotely. And as long as there’s an internet connection, employees can work just about anywhere, even in rural communities.

    • Interesting but expected reaction.
      Will the price of inner city properties collapse?
      Will the grand plans of some Auckland developers and mayor come to a standstill?
      Probably not here in NZ.
      The greater effect will be the loss of all the Chinese students and good job. Most were simply using the taxpayer resources and allowed the dumbing down of our universities and schools in the pursuit of dollars for the grand masters of those institutions. Poor quality business in most cases.
      No accounting for the unintended consequences of the poor quality policy.

      Looking back we can see that the same effect happened in earlier times. People left the cities and went country to avoid things like polio and others.

      • The concern is if they tamp down on Chinese students the Unis replace them with even more Indians.
        Not good.

        Given the internet is coping with remote teaching and some work-from-home why do they need to come to NZ to study. They can do it cheaper at home.
        Ah yes, they come here for our citizenship.

    Mainland China reported 39 new coronavirus cases as of Sunday, up from 30 a day earlier, and the number of asymptomatic cases also surged as the government vowed tighter controls at land borders.

    The National Health Commission said on Monday that 78 new asymptomatic cases had been identified as of the end of Sunday, compared with 47 the day before.

  8. Very encouraging news.

    Coronavirus Poll: 9 in 10 Children Experiencing ‘Enjoyment,’ ‘Happiness’ at Home with Family

    Close to nine in 10 parents of children under the age of 18 say their children experienced enjoyment (89 percent) and happiness (88 percent) “during a lot of the day” prior to the day they were interviewed. However, with many children receiving distance learning or being home-schooled for part of the day rather than attending school, 65 percent of parents report their children are experiencing boredom.

    Five other emotions — all negative — are currently far less common among children, including worry (26 percent), stress (24 percent), anger (24 percent), sadness (20 percent) and loneliness (20 percent).

    Stress and worry are largely confined to parents — roughly seven in 10 parents report feeling these emotions themselves, each by at least 40 percentage points higher than the comparable percentage among children.

  10. Dear —

    The Epidemic Response Committee that I lead will reconvene this week (Tuesday to Thursday) to further examine the health and economic response to Covid-19 being taken by the Government.

    You can watch it live each day on my Facebook page by clicking here

    Scrutiny of the Government’s response is crucial to ensuring New Zealand is responding to Covid-19 as strongly and effectively as possible.

    Last week the Committee pushed the Government to ensure more testing was being carried out and to clarifying whether Police had the right powers.

    I’m pleased to see that in response the Government has stepped up testing in our communities, and greater clarity has been provided on essential businesses and enforcement by the Police.

    This week I will question whether we should have proper quarantining at the border. A large number of cases are coming in from overseas and National will continue to push for strict quarantine measures to be put in place.

    Tomorrow (Tuesday) we will again be joined by Sir David Skegg, a professor from Otago University. He gave valuable insights last week into the health response. We will also question Health Minister David Clark and Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield.

    On Wednesday we will have an economic focus. Former Chief Executive of BusinessNZ Phil O’Reilly will be our independent expert and we will question a range of leaders from industries including ports, tourism and agriculture.

    On Thursday we will examine the response from the Ministry of Social Development and the Ministry of Education.

    You can watch the Committee live from 10am each day on my Facebook page, on Parliament TV (Freeview Channel 31 or Sky 86), or on the Parliament website.

    If you have any questions you want answers to, please email me at nlo@parliament.govt.nz

    The Epidemic Response Committee will continue to ask the questions that New Zealanders want answered so we can ensure the highest standards of health care and a fast-economic recovery from this crisis.

    We are all in this together.

    Regards

    Simon

      The crayons came out and Clark was drawn a lesson in humility – very publicly.

    • Why only 20%. Most of the useless fuckers are sitting around home filling in their facebook.
      Fletchers opted finally for 30% and many of us have no income other than the $585 that Grant handed out but still with all the liabilities that go with a business.

      Same for local Govt. people.

      Imagine the wage cut for people who have buildings where noone is paying the rent.
      Or for people who have logging businesses. and many others.
      What makes 20% a suitable amopunt.

  14. Massive Constitutional changes and Free Speech versions slipped in, still to proceed through government.

    This issue does not seem to get into the media, as Andrew Little keeps to getting his laws in place with minimal publicity and using CCP virus, which like rust, never sleeps.

    Monday, 6 April 2020, 7:14 am
    Press Release: New Zealand National Party
    ….. “Justice Minister Andrew Little last week insisted the Justice Select Committee progress this Bill during the lockdown and refused to support any extension of time. …..
    …… set the closure date for submissions and stated she intends video conferencing submission hearings in the week of 13 April while the nation is still in lockdown. …..

    “….. The Chair has ignored National’s objections in three video conference discussions ……
    https://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PA2004/S00025/rushing-electoral-law-change-under-lockdown-wrong.htm

    It would seem that Labour & Greens with NZ First trading & swallowing dead rats, all eyeing the coming elections would also use this opportunity to find ways to keep the snouts in the trough.

    I feel that many other bits & pieces will be tacked on, like “hate speech laws” maybe riding in a Trojan horse of CCP virus control, like Denmark.

    The Danish parliament, last week, passed a law which makes it possible to shut down websites and to fine or imprison persons who publish information about the COVID-19 virus that doesn’t line-up with the government’s guidelines. …..
    …… coronavirus guidelines put forward by specific authorities are not to be questioned. Those authorities are the National Board of Health, the Serum Institute, the Police, the Ministry of Health, and the Prime Minister . ……

    https://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PA2004/S00025/rushing-electoral-law-change-under-lockdown-wrong.htm

        • The socialistic tool that Andrew Little wants, as he pushes these things through, so that Ardern’s adhans of hope, and issuance of fatwas can never be questioned.

          …. The report calls on the CRTC to regulate platforms to ensure they provide “links to the websites of Canadian sources of accurate, trusted, and reliable sources of news” and have “rules to ensure the visibility and access to such sources of news.”

          While that might sound like a nice idea, things get problematic when it comes down to deciding who is an “accurate, trusted and reliable” source of news — and what’s to stop future governments from abusing that power to suppress critical news?

          “It would mean establishing the most extensive speech regulation Canada has ever seen,”
          https://pressprogress.ca/canadas-heritage-minister-no-we-are-not-creating-legislation-to-make-news-websites-register-with-the-government/

          One can see with Canada, the government looking to implement the Report, then the “back peddling” and now how to manage to slip past like a wedge to gain what they have always wanted.

          One would think that Andrew Little and his minions will be looking to see how Canada is doing this, to pick up some of slippery clauses, just what are the definitions? to get through NZ legislation.

    • Late edit. Apologies;
      Just found I gave the wrong link about the Danish government controlling speech laws.
      https://voiceofeurope.com/2020/04/danish-parliament-bans-misinformation-about-coronavirus/

      Also found a better source,
      Probably why it was allowed to go through would be the sunset clause.
      …. unanimously passed an emergency coronavirus law which gives health authorities powers to force testing, treatment and quarantine with the backing of the police.

      The far-reaching new law will remain in force until March 2021, when it will expire under a ‘sunset clause’.
      https://www.thelocal.dk/20200313/denmark-passes-far-reaching-emergency-coronavirus-law
      The oppositions points where it went too far so some strong police clauses dropped.

      How the population takes this, and whether there may be a free ranging inquiry at a later date, how CCP virus was coped with, the price of loss of freedoms so good lessons are learnt, will all be hopefully started in a years time.

      Will there be a way where ones can express opinions in the mean time?
      Keeping things bottled will make a number of people & groups very frustrated.

      More than likely there could be some good ideas that may be helpful, but who has the right to define what or where it is wrong.

      People should have the choice how they give credibility to any information, and the “prudent person” use to be the guide.

    In an interview with Newshub on Monday, a kaumātua, or Māori elder, of Far North iwi Ngāti Kurī called out Dr O’Sullivan for “criticising the community”.

    • When I posted this earlier I was only part way through viewing it but it is so good I stopped to post it. Have now finished it. Lots of detail but a standout is the doctor explains that he gives hydroxychloromine + zinc + an antibiotic. The hydroxy is only there to allow the zinc to work. Zinc cannot get into the cell very well. The hydroxy “breaks” a pathway for the zinc to enter the cell and do its work on the virus. The antibiotic is a precaution to fight any secondary infection..

  18. Wouldn’t it be amazing if Boris recovered fully from his illness
    and, attributed Hydroxchloroquine to saving his life.

    Also, if The Donald, promotes the stuff, and has med labs producing it
    by the millions., I’d say he has a modicum of confidence about its effectiveness.
    Wouldn’t you?

    If that’s the case then , why would certain people be pushing the 18-month trial on an alternative,
    before releasing it to the public.
    It could be something as simple as greed.
    It could be even simpler and it’s just the usual animosity filled venting of venom from the left,
    denying people of a cure because the swamp is not as comfortable as it used to be.

    Or, when the Don said, he didn’t want the cure to be worse than the disease, he might just know something
    they don’t, and it may be, just maybe, that Big Pharma vaccines are poisonous.

    • I can not see what Valerie Jarret or Maxine Waters bring to this, except not only practiced ignorance and practiced stupidity, and with spite.

      The vaccines are poisonous, yeah right.
      All big pharma?
      The small pox vaccine?
      Polio vaccine?
      Tuberculosis vaccine?

      Who produces that Hydroxchloroquine, basically going through the Big Pharma regulations,
      Do you trust so many of those generic pills, developed from Big Pharma that come from China now? There seems to be some very big differences between brands that are supposed to be the same ingredients.

      I do not trust every thing about Big Pharma, but nor do I want to go back to cloves of garlic, now updated to manuka honey, with all its money making sugary deals.
      Like the curate’s egg, good in parts.

      Sure where money flows, and with greed, and so there is corruption,
      Root it out, drain the swamp, but it does not make vaccines wrong when properly studied & tested, monitored, etc…

      Also like wise it is pushed to accept the meme that it is morbidity of age health problems, etc. that is causing CCP virus deaths, even though many may have had quite a few years left of reasonable active life, if on their pills.
      After all we can quote some one living to a 100 and smoked for 80 of them. So why should he die when if it happened and he was only 70. Who knows? Expediency?
      Though I have heard of the 100+ surviving their brush with CCP virus.

      Just like how the money flows for the opiate causing addictions from one company to hide the results of tests, problems and camouflage over.
      Yet I have had those drugs to ease pain here in NZ.

      It is the people who misuse those companies, skimming of the money, to go outside the guidelines. and then in their metastasizing influence in media, research, monitoring etc..

      I know that bad in pharma can take a life of its own, but they must be held to account by the current laws, which I believe can basically do this.

        Trump and Modi were backslapping each other.
        Trump gave Modi big Ups at an open air rally.
        That was a huge benefit to Modi.

        This is how it works.

        She kept wanting to go to Britain while Treason May was there but trash talked USA and Australia like it was a pre boxing match trash talk.

    The water ice and other lunar resources that will help the United States establish a long-term human presence on the moon are there for the taking, the White House believes.

    President Donald Trump signed an executive order today (April 6) establishing U.S. policy on the exploitation of off-Earth resources. That policy stresses that the current regulatory regime — notably, the 1967 Outer Space Treaty — allows the use of such resources.

    Asked by the German public broadcaster why there is “so much resistance” in Europe to the question of open borders with the third world, and why the EU has not yet “succeeded” in foisting mass immigration on countries across the continent, Juncker said Brussels has “told the member-states of their responsibility”.

    “We will see what the member-states do about it,” he said, proclaiming mass immigration to be a “great challenge of our age” and hinting that countries in Europe will come around to taking the same view as the European Commission.

Further, as an ex alterboy, I find the circumstances of the offending highly improbable, based on when and where it supposedly took place.

      • Yet any farmer in this country that moves stock from a “Movement Control Area” will feel that they have been shot by the government ministries, if they do not comply; which is a quarantine!

        No stock in, unless all clear, and only if given ministry clearance.
        Certainly no stock out, again given full ministry clearance and approval.
        This all has been for Brucellosis which has basically been eradicated.
        Tuberculosis which reduced the number of cattle herds and also farmed deer to a very low %, but run into feral vector sources, mainly possums and also some pigs & deer with ferrets & stoats.

        Now the Mycoplasma bovis eradication scheme. Not sure that will work, as it seems to sometimes have an insidious & slow incubation, and more knowledge of it is needed.

        Though the Minister O’Connor pointed fingers to farmers not complying with the notifications they are supposed to do, it was the shambles of the systems, the numbering of each individual “passport” tag to each cattle beast, and then sending the report to a part of the ministry.
        They could not cope with it, like for example sending back reports to farmers with non numerical order and non alphabetical order.

        However many farmers have become very canny about what they bring onto the farm.

        Many not only have a boundary fence with the neighbour, but hot wires placed a metre inside their boundary If both do that then obtain a 2 metre distance.
        Can also work with advising when the cattle will be on those boundary paddocks so neighbours can avoid close up risks.

        Although some feel that government gives farmers compensation, yeah great, just look how well the government compensates the ones who can not go to work now..
        Nothing changes, and there is the belief the trough will never run out, so long as the Bullshit is feed & kept in the dark.

    Leading Philanthropists Get Carnegie Medals
    Dec. 11, 2001
    ”I wanted to do what would make the biggest difference in the shortest term,” said Mr. Turner, discussing his decision in 1997 to give $100 million a year to the United Nations in the course of 10 years.

    Mr. Soros, too, has said he will use his money now, rather than leave it to others to direct.

    As president of the Aaron Diamond Foundation, Ms. Diamond gave away more than $220 million and closed out the foundation five years ago, after a decade as the largest private supporter of AIDS research, playing an important role in discovering protease inhibitors.

    Ms. Astor closed the Vincent Astor Foundation in 1997 after giving away some $200 million. ”You have to try to help everybody, but if they’re nuts and stupid, stay away from them,” she said, advice that won a standing ovation.

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said arrivals into New Zealand will still have to be quarantined for two weeks even after the lockdown is over.

    Professor Wilson, a former medical doctor now at University of Otago’s public health department told RNZ electronic bracelets could ensure travellers arriving in New Zealand did not break the rules.

    “The country is making enormous sacrifices to try and achieve elimination so it’s a relatively small ask that travellers do have some of these electronic monitoring devices,” he said.

    The bracelets could also help with tracing contacts if people did breach their quarantine.

    I wonder if a journalist or an Opposition politician is going be brave enough to conclude and say publicly that if NZ had imposed good border control and strict testing of EVERYONE coming in from very early on (say mid/late Feb.) then we could probably have got away without a lock down. Yes emphasise personal hygiene, social distancing etc. but we could have all got on with our lives without wrecking the economy –that was going to be rough anyway with export markets being disrupted, but now we have a train wreck.

      Simply because quarantine! was not put in place, in a timely manner, that is a month or so ago.!

      The rest of NZ would have been chugging along reasonably well, domestic tourism, and be in a better position to carry some of the education & tourist losses.

    Henry Kissinger, eminence grise of imperial US foreign policy, has warned in an op-ed that no government – even his beloved hegemon – can defeat Covid-19 alone, implying that the New World Order he’s always preached must follow.
    If the US doesn’t couple its efforts to rebuild its own economy with the first steps toward creating a global government, humanity is doomed, Kissinger wrote in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed.

  44. World’s oldest human DNA found in 800,000-year-old tooth of a cannibal

    In 1994, archaeologists digging in the Atapuerca Mountains in northern Spain discovered the fossilized remains of an archaic group of humans unlike any other ever seen. The bones were cut and fractured, and appeared to have been cannibalized. The largest skeletal fragments — which came from at least six individuals and dated to at least 800,000 years ago — shared some similarities with modern humans (Homo sapiens), plus other now-extinct human relatives like Neanderthals and Denisovans, but were just different enough to defy classification as any known species.
