Some of you seem to still be confused. The stay-at-home orders were meant to keep hospitals from becoming overwhelmed all at once, not to prevent you from ever contracting a virus. Stop letting fear dictate your life. The government cannot protect you from contagion.

  1. The Gnome is having a few drinks with his mate Pete down at the Viaduct. Well into the second bottle of Glenmorangie he pukes down the front of his shirt – looks at Pete and says “Jan’s going to kill me when she sees I got so hammered I spewed all over my new shirt !”

    Pete pulls a $10 note out of his wallet, slips it into Winnie’s shirt pocket and says “just tell Jan that a drunk vomited all over you and gave you $10 to dry clean your shirt.”

    Jan meets him at the door, and the Gnome tells her that a drunk had vomited on him, and given him $10 to have his shirt cleaned. Jan reaches into his pocket – and says “but this is $20 not $10 !”

    “Ah yeah” – replies Winnie – “that’s because he shat my pants as well !”

  2. I posted here weeks ago that we couldn’t get a flu shot for our elderly mother , and FFS it hasn’t improved at all by the sounds of it.
    Don’t forget people, these are the same morons that are supposedly going to pull us through the most complex financial disaster in history, good grief we are truly F- – –D .
    The coming F- – -K ups will make Kiwibuild look like the most successful Labour Party policy ever.

    • rev, that premise has been refuted by Dear Leader.
      Please keep up.
      The flu vaccination rollout is just peachy, and we know this because the incompetent people who f@#d up the rollout told the grossly overpaid Prime Minister it was ‘all gud,, we got this’.

      The GPs said it is a debacle.
      The Pharmacists said it is a debacle.
      The Public said it is a debacle.
      Your mum hasn’t been jabbed.
      The Prime Minister says it isn’t a debacle.
      So it isn’t.

      • A couple of days ago David Seymour was asking Willie Jackson if they plan to prosecute any employers for misuse of the wage subsidy. I won’t bore you with the non-answer, but reference was made to some employers already having paid the money back.
        Maybe I have no imagination, but the only reason I can think of is if the employer had decided to throw in the towel completely? Tourism operators spring to mind.
        Is this an indicator worth keeping an eye on?.

  3. So ANZAC Day has suddenly become important to Ardern, now that she’s devised a way to use it as a photo op and point scoring. She really knows no shame. There’s no way I’m standing at the end of my driveway in unison with her. She’ll be looking really mournful, but that’s only because she’s standing where Paddles the cat got run over.

    • Apparently this is another reactive measure from Ardern. I was talking to my wife about it earlier and she said there is no way this is a Govt. initiative. There has been a huge move on social media both here and in Australia with people just doing their own thing or groups working on ideas –there is a website and several apps to get involved with. One street in Aussie has got together and painted all the lamp posts in the street.
      So as usual Ardern is just latching onto something, late in the piece, so she gets her photo taken

        Its only the heroic Jacinda Ardern the darling of the United Nations, Canada and Hollywood that has turned her country into a cross between Venezuela and Zimbabwe overnight.

As this drags on people are going to get more and more restless, and some are going to crack and start doing stupid things. Eventually people will say fuck this and a revolt will start….

  5. To be honest there are times during this debacle that I want to wave the flag and just surrender. The stupidity of so many sycophants is overwhelming me. The latest debacle is the possible/probable handout of money to adults and children they’re discussing to get the economy going????????????. Kids are so excited at the prospect of a cash handout, little do they realise they’ll be paying this off for the rest of their lives.
    So what will happen with the next disaster? Do the lieber party think now they have this, we’re all gud, that there will be not a single disaster in the future? What if we get another earthquake? Another flue? What happens then? I doubt many will realise how totally fucked over they’ve been till its too far down the track to do anything about it.
    Well I suppose at least the police are busy in Hamilton, I have in 15 years of living here never heard so many sirens, both day and night. So interesting isn’t it? Has the police state happened already? And don’t get me started on Anzac Day?

  6. This is why we’re both the most wonderful nation on this planet and also the most fucked up.

    That lady goes to work a shopping job at night to help fund her employees. It’s magnificent generosity and must be costing her a fair amount of time and money as well. That is a small business owner that Deborah Russell blames for failing during Covid-19.

    At the same time, why the fuck are her employees not getting up and doing the same thing? Why are they expecting her to do this for them? Maybe it is older generation who needed to be self-reliant versus a younger generation that has known nothing but luxury and state supported lifestyles.

    • A friend of mine has a small food processing business. He was allowed to stay open and working. He has orders to keep the factory busy out to the end of September, at least. But his factory staff decided it was too risky and stayed home despite him bending over backwards to support them when times were very tough as the business developed.
      He has been a die hard, left leaning person all his life but talking to him over the past couple of weeks it is interesting to hear the change. He is now thinking seriously of contacting out part of the operation ( all the packaging side) to a contract packer after restrictions loosen up and keeping the rest going with minimal processing staff and the sales people. All the others will lose their jobs.

      • I am of the view the hand out rather than hand up days are definitely gone now. Stuff working and paying tax to support those not prepared to get of their backsides. It is going to get tougher than it was. I have no interest in supporting lazy non contributors. I have no interest in supporting “unemployed” or “ job seekers” when there still remains work being done by imported workers from other countries.

        Yes, we are helping out Pacific Countries with work, but cannot continue supporting inter generational New Zealand sloth while doing so. Those not turning up for work can not complain when they find the opportunity has gone and there is no more handouts.

    • The younger generation has no experience of hard times.
      Ever since 1987 the wealthy immigrants and generally falling interest rates have boosted the economy ever skywards. Just like in Japan from the time of the Korean War until the early 1990s. Every year was better than the last. More money. More and better consumer goods. More choices. Easier credit.

      I remember my early days in Auckland (near the end of the last century). So many rusted out, worn out cars on the road. Few cafes. People wearning unfashionable clothes. Horrible hair styles. No one seemed to have any money.

      How different in 2019 in Auckland. High-rise apartments. High-end fashion shops and cafes everywhere. Flash new cars. Boats. Real estate agents’ offices everywhere. English as a second language in some suburbs. Caucasian natives an ethnic minority in the newer schools in the Botany and Flat Bush regions.

      What’s my point? Oh yes. If you were 10 years old or younger in 1987 (the last hard times) you would have no understanding of a recession (God forbid a depression). If you were an immigrant from a Chinese sphere or from Indian, you too would only have known year after year of economic progress.

      My conclusion. Youngsters under the age of 45 won’t know what has hit them when the wage subsidies start to run out in about 10-12 weeks.

      As for myself, I saw the fall of the Titans and the rise of the zombie banks in Japan in the early 1990s. The transition can be very rapid. It’s a lot like going over a waterfall. You don’t know you have gone over until it is too late. One moment all is calm and bliss. Next moment you are in a roaring freefall.

          There was total shock and awe at how the mightly could fall so far.

  7. Somebody commented on Michael Moore’s “Planet of the Humans” “dedicated to all those who didn’t realize that they were ready and willing to be carried off by the coronavirus.” If you haven’t watched the film take time to do so today…what else are you going to do today?

    • Thanks for the link yesterday Alice. As a result I watched it last night.

      I found it very well made and the points about the corruption and stupidity of the ‘green’ movement really struck home. The guy certainly is a creative Goliath and the cinematography was amazing.

      What horrified me, however, was the underlying putrid sick anti human agenda that this man is pushing – namely that A) humans are destroying the planet and B) humanity needs to drastically cull its numbers otherwise ‘the planet’ won’t survive.

      This is not only incorrect, but it is psychologically and spiritually perverted and it would only lead to the decay and eventual destruction of humanity of we were to act out this warped agenda.

      The closing sequence of the ape in the tree wansn’t Moore’s plea for us to save nature, blah blah blah…. it was this man’s vision for what humans would go back to if he has his way.

      It’s one of the sickest piece of film making that I’ve ever seen. Disgusting on every level.

      • Interesting how different people can come up with such different views of the same thing. The message I walked away with was:

        * The Green economy is built on bullshit
        * Renewable energy is a myth and utter bullshit
        * Our planet does not have infinite resources
        * We need to find an alternative or change our lifestyle
        * We need to protect our environment

        What does humanity do well? We innovate. Lifestyle won’t change, but we’ll find better options.

  8. Yeah, nah. Good luck to them in a difficult time but this is going to go down like a lead balloon with the exhibitors who have no choice having paid up front already for their Fieldays site.

    Coronavirus: National Agricultural Fieldays to go ahead, switches to digital platforms
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/rural/2020/04/coronavirus-national-agricultural-fieldays-to-go-ahead-switches-to-digital-platforms.html

    Event organisers, the New Zealand National Fieldays Society, said it is pioneering a new experience of Fieldays that will ensure its longevity in an age of social isolation and measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

    Under the new plan, visitors will get a taste of the event via a virtual experience on digital platforms until the physical event is able to take place.

    Introducing Fieldays Online!📣 We are excited to announce that we will continue to bring you the Fieldays experience that we as a country know and love, but rather virtually this year while we as a nation work together to fight against COVID-19. At Fieldays we understand the value of coming together and the importance of the agricultural community for New Zealand and the world. Now, more than ever, we need to continue to connect, to trade, to network and to learn from one another.

    The virtual experience will offer an entirely new spin on the event whilst retaining all it’s treasured parts. From Fieldays Future Focus talks to the beloved Fieldays Innovation Programme, the technology will allow for an immersive experience from the comfort of one’s own home.

      • Exactly Sooty. Mystery Creek stall holders had to pay up front by the end of February to secure their site for June. Now Fieldays won’t refund exhibitors as they have replaced the physical site with a virtual site. When we used to exhibit at the Fieldays the cost of a 3msq site was approx $3k. Bet the price has increased since then. The Fieldays is a chance for farmers to get off the farm and have a day out catching up with all their fellow farmers from around the country. While they purchase deals it is far more the social event that makes the Fieldays such a success. This could be the death nell of this rural tradition.

If they kick up a fuss, the Fieldays will not be in a good mind to accept them next time. Most of these sites are booked years in advance. To retain your preferred site you will write of this year as a bad experience and hope all is good for next year.

  9. Experts all have differing opinions. You can always find one who will give you the rationale, the plan and the forecasting model that fits well with your objectives.

    So, if you are an authoritarian government, which “expert” will you choose from the following?

    Expert A: “This virus will be not much worse than a bad flu. My model predicts about twice the average flu-season deaths among the elderly and chronically unhealthy.” Herd immunity acquisition is recommended.

    Expert B: “This virus will be much worse than a bad flu. My model predicts about 10 times the annual flu season deaths. We need to immediately quaranteen all entries into New Zealand. The wearing of masks and “social distancing” should be encouraged.

    Expert C: “My model predicts 80,000 deaths in New Zealand if nothing is done. We need to lock down the country. Police should be given powers to stop, search, enter property and detain without charging indefinitely. All gatherings should be banned. All non-essential businesses should close. All reporting of opinions contrary to official policy should be suppressed. A decision about quaranteening arrivals can be made later.

        And heaps of people thought that was appropriate. What did she say during this broadcast? “Dunno, but wasn’t it cool.”

  10. Most open and transparent government evah! Discussions about suspending the OIA!

    Once again the most dishonest and destructive government this nation has seen is found wanting. Newsroom reports that government policy advisors’ approached the Ombudsman about suspending the OIA during the lockdown as it was difficult to respond when everyone is working from home.

    Fortunately the Ombudsman blew his stack and put his foot down.

    Ministers are now in full “DENY, DENY, DENY” mode and getting ready to blame the public servants. Look we all know a lot of senior public servants are a bit ‘cock-wombly’ – but those grey-faced don’t do anything without some sort of nod from a Minister. So of course, Ministers are relying on the sheeple accepting their pleas of “plausible deniability”.

    We are watching the equivalent of the Austrians cheering as Hitler’s jack-booted SS soldiers marched into annex their country during the 1930s. My great hope is that the legions of chinese-bot fake FB and Twitter accounts are creating a massive ‘shy-Tory’ effect and we’re going to see a sweeping ballot box rejection of Ardern’s capital destroying fascism.

    If not, I fear we’ll be one of the first countries to be colonised by China as they seek their own version of lebensraum and relief from the long, cold Grand Solar Minimum winters that in the past preceded the fall of the great Chinese dynasties.

    The CCP is the only political movement playing a long game – they’re not hampered by simpering social consciences, anti-human environmental suicide cults or any interest in human rights. They want to be the first ever Chinese mega-Dynasty to retain power through the coming famines.

    They need green lands in the Southern hemisphere, they’ve got massive footholds in the soon to be green and verdant Africa – but NZ must look like a perfect prize. No defence capability at all. Huge land mass relative to a tiny populace. Ardern has seen to the partial disarmament and will probably complete the job in her second term – so colonisation will face next to no resistance. The USA and Australia have already been partially alienated and a second Ardern term will see the job completed – so our traditional allies will not bat even an eye lid when a Chinese warship or two rolls into Auckland and Wellington harbours and disembarks a few Chinese regiments to take over the country.

    Tick tock!

But by 2023/2024 Trump will be on the way out. Australia is long long overdue for their Labor loons to be in power – once the Dems are in the WH and Aus Labor are in control – why would they interfere with the CCP making themselves at home in their new southern colony. We are the easiest of cherries to pick – and we’re getting easier every day.

        The economic chaos that Jacinda is wreaking now (and will magnify during her 2nd term) will translate into significant parts of NZ being held by Chinese interests. The colonisation step will be necessary and under the guise of “protecting their national interests”.

        The future is Chinese YSB friends!

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/121153767/coronavirus-we-need-to-learn-to-be-critical-of-ashley-bloomfield

    I wondered what was going on. Was Dr Bloomfield getting too much credit and outshining the PM? Well it looks like I might have got an answer yesterday. According to others on another blog the 1.00pm sideshow yesterday saw the PM constantly interrupting Dr Bloomfield to give her “expert” interpretation of the situation. Apparently Dr Bloomfield was very professional and did not worry.

    Maybe things behind the scenes are not as rosy as them seem.

  12. Analysis: Simon Bridges’ leadership questioned after serious misjudgements

    The phones are running hot in the National Party caucus as MPs frantically try to figure out whether to replace Simon Bridges as leader after this week’s massive backlash.
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/analysis-simon-bridges-leadership-questioned-after-serious-misjudgements?auto=6151137592001

    Minutes after Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the lockdown would continue for another week, Mr Bridges shot out a media release accusing the Government of not having “done the groundwork” despite the rest of the country having done such a great job.

    The shutdown has been bookmarked by two serious cases of misjudgement: the first was his’ “beneficiaries baked in” outburst in Parliament, and now this latest one.

    • Would not believe a word of it WG and I am not a Bridges fan. This is just another article from the “pack”. Even Barry Soper supports Bridges’ right to be critical ( see Dafixeruppa’s link @8.46 am)

      • Same here. I thought he was an appalling choice by the idiot blue-rinsers running the National party.

        But I think this is classic chinese interference in another countries’ affairs. The US intelligence services have briefed congress with their concerns that NZ Labour is funded by the CCP. If Jacinda falls then there is a possibility that NZ may join the growing number of international voices who want China to be held to account for their combined bio-warfare/psy-ops attack on the West.

        What other country has bot farms? Many online games have major problems with warehouses full of paid online gamers turning virtual money into real world income. They have the industrial capacity in place already to create thousands of faux social media accounts to stir up a fake outrage storm and the ‘bought and paid for’ media will line up to do the bidding of our very own Manchurian candidate.

        I suspect if anything, Bridges’ real (ie from those of us who don’t subject ourselves to the insanity of Twitter mobs) support has increased.

        We live in the age of lies now. We can only rely on our own common sense assessments of any situation – we have to continue thinking for ourselves. Remember – there was NO PATH TO VICTORY for Trump and he won a landslide victory.

    • I recon that a faction within National are fed up with Bridges Blanks and are loading Christopher Luxon into the chamber in an attempt to shoot down Labour. They think that a blue-suit-jacketed round-headed ordnance of the caliber of Luxon is the kind of ammunition that will get the job done.

        I doubt if many are that stupid. If Bridges wins no one will be able to roll.

        If Bridges loses there is no way someone who does not know his way around Parliament would be elected as leader.

        The only way Luxon could become leader before 2023 is for a new leader after Bridges to poll badly. If National loses in 2020 they should romp in in 2023.

  13. A very inconvenient Swedish Covid truth

    Have a look at the graph in this tweet. It’s the comparison between the apocalyptic forecast of the Imperial College Covid modelling (the one that has more or less formed the basis of all lockdown decisions) for the approach that Sweden has taken. The huge peaks are what the model predicts – the tiny area shaded red that is almost invisible – is what’s really happening.

    Looks like western economies have been destroyed for no good reason at all!

    Who could have guessed it, put a lying Marxist like Jacinda in charge of your country and magically the Alinsky plan gets put into effect with the economy destroyed and the settings right for totalitarian rule. All because of MMP.

          The undemocratic nature of the beast has been exposed warts and all probably for the first time in NZ.
          The German experience where they are now lucky to get even a 40% voter turnout will be ours if there is no change.

  14. Moraymint’s latest blog post is worth reading:
    “My own view is that as far as Covid-19 is concerned we’re not in the process of heading out of the crisis; we are in fact at the front end of the crisis, heading into it. All we’ve done is attenuate the impact of the arrival of Covid-19 in our lives. I would say we’re in the first 20% of the Covid-19 crisis period, with 80% of the journey to go. Using my black, military humour, I predict that the fun will start as this year draws to a close and we enter 2021.”

  15. We must stop pouring millions upon millions of dollars into a hole in the ground. We are continuing to pour money into Pike River – and so far the first $50 million has nothing to show us, and not even getting any closer to a resolution.

    I know it was one of the governments key election platforms, but at this time so many will be hurting pretty bad, and to watch this money constantly poured into a failed plan is galling.

    Two years ago the new Grey Base Hospital in Greymouth was completed – except for the fitout and staff. Since then coasters have had to watch countless truckloads of carpet, desks, computers and copiers and more coffee machines than you could poke a stick at rolling into town, straight past the as yet unopened hospital. Divert the Pike River slush fund to something that the community really needs !

    At a time when the focus is squarely on the actions and results of the health sector, here we have a brand new hospital not yet being utilised. It could have been converted to a national covid-19 base, and as it is alongside the airport, patients could have been ferried in and out with ease. If only Health Minister Clark would park up his bike and get back to his office !

    • Don’t disagree with you at all KiWombat – but what is the solution?
      The Coast is apparently a socialist stronghold. When a minority (Pike River families) campaigns tirelessly and emotionally for personal and political gain, the majority of the Coasters seem to feel obliged to support them no matter what.
      No offence, but I don’t understand why the people there would rather have all this Pike River stuff continuing at the expense of a working hospital. And they won’t vote National will they.

      • Coasters generally support National – they are productive people and believe in directing their own fate. However the electorate flows right up to the northern tip of the south island, and takes in several Nelson suburbs. This is where much Labour support comes from, along with Westport, the birthplace of the NZ Labour Party.

        The member for this electorate rarely visits the coast – he doesn’t need the votes down here, because he has the northern part of the electorate pretty well locked in. He doesn’t have an electorate office down here, and needs to catch 2 planes (minimum) each way to even get here. As a result many of us are more than 500km’s from our “local” electorate office.

        As far as the Pike River problem is concerned, there are very few affected families still on the coast – most of them have left because they are sick to death of the constant media microscope, and in any case they have received a payout – and now want to move on. If coasters were polled, I am sure they would support cessation of this futile exercise, and probably support the money be spent elsewhere on the coast, where it would be of benefit to the living, rather than the dead.

  16. The Tokyo Governor is just beginning to address the supermarket crowding problem in the capital (where there have been 100+ new infections each day for the last 10 days in a row). Things are getting out of hand.

    Japanese supermarkets tend to be compact, with narrow aisles. They do not have shopping trolleys as we know them in NZ. Instead, the shoppers hold plastic baskets that are slightly larger than the ones used in NZ. Some Japanese supermarkets have “plastic basket holders on wheels” that can hold a bottom and a top basket. Also, supermarkets at Japan usually open at 10:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. Housewives in Japan as a rule shop every day for fresh ingredients. They shop for small amounts but often.
    The governor of Tokyo is calling on people to “shop once every 3 days” (it won’t happen) and to maintain a social distance (not possible).
    I can’t see how Tokyo can solve this problem.

    • O…sen
      Here, the daily trip to the supermarket is not for fresh ingredients. Its the living from day to day attitude that a lot have which does not involve planing beyond today. They only think about tomorrows food when tomorrow becomes today.
      I believe its preconditioned in people whose forebears had not come from harsh climates where if you did not stock up the larder for winter or got in the firewood you starved or froze.
      Not quite related, but I remember an incident where a feral couple had a donnybrook outside a local dairy. They were down to their last dollars and dole day was still away off. He wanted to spend the money on bread and a can of baked beans, she wanted it to go in cigarettes.

    While she is pulling sad faces (and twisting her speech into a memorial for the the Christchurch Shootings) for dozens of adoring media tomorrow just remember this is a woman who has shown nothing but contempt for our War Dead in the past, and a woman didn’t bother to even acknowledge the D-Day Commemorations..

    Ref: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=12327101

    I just wish that the Ngai Tahu Tourism frontpeople would use English terms and stop trying to virtue-signal so much when they put the axe into their workforce.
    “The business was doing all it could to support those affected and was particularly proud of the whanaungatanga and manaakitanga on display across the organisation in such difficult circumstances, the statement said.”

    I mean, would you expect a Japanese-owned business operating in New Zealand to come out with a statement like: “The business was doing all it could to support those affected and was particularly proud of the ningen-kankei and shinsetu na omotenashi on display across the organisation in such difficult circumstances.” Everyone would be scratching their heads.

    Reading between the lines, Ngai Tahu Tourism knows that it has iron-clad monopolies to run its jetboat and other operations, so they will simply pull the plug now, and then restart in a couple of years when things are back to normal.

    Ngai Tahu Tourism may be trying to appear virtuous and somehow “caring” and “respectful” by using awe-inspiring Te Reo terms, but in reality they are a hard-nosed business operation that doesn’t take any prisoners.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/04/danish-politicians-horrified-by-united-states-economic-deal-with-greenland.html

    Danish politicians are aghast at what some allege is a move by the United States to undermine Denmark’s influence in Greenland months after Donald Trump expressed interest in buying the Arctic territory.

    US President Donald Trump’s administration has announced a NZD$19.9 million financial aid package to boost Greenland’s economic development and that it will also establish a consulate in the capital of Nuuk. Greenland’s Prime Minister has welcomed the support.

    “It takes time to develop closer relationships with other countries. But this good news is confirmed that our work on building a constructive relationship with the United States is bearing fruit,” Prime Minister Kim Kielsen said.

After all, who was it that broke up the vast land holdings of the Japanese kizoku (the aristocracy) after the war and sold the land to the farmers who had been tenants on it countless generations? It sure wasn’t the British or (God forbid) the Soviets.

          No one in Japan can forget the kindness and generosity of the Americans in the post-war period (food aid, penicillin, etc.) (okay, with the advancement of the communists in Asia, the US did require an “unsinkable aircraft carrier,” but Japan was grateful for the opportunity to recover all the same).

    https://patents.google.com/patent/US10163055B2/en?oq=US10163055B2
    Excerpt:
    FIG. 13 further illustrates machine translation. Here the woman’s thoughts may control a changeable tattoo. The tattoo is another example of physical response to mental thoughts. The tattoo is capable of changing its visual appearance in response to the neurological signals received from the neurological area network. That is, the tattoo changes in response to the woman’s thoughts. The woman thinks about the visual appearance of her tattoo. Her neurological signals are received by her smart phone. The interpreter of the interface application translates the neurological signals into the commands for her tattoo. The interface application converts the commands into the biological signals, and the biological signals are transmitted along the woman’s body area network. The biological signals route to the addressable biological region within the body that contains her changeable tattoo. The tattoo is thus commanded to change its visual appearance. The woman merely visualizes the appearance of her tattoo, and her thoughts are interpreted into physical changes of her tattoo.

    The changeable tattoo has many other uses. The tattoo may be commanded to display a reminder at a particular date and time, thus helping the user remember important calendar events. The tattoo may be commanded to display web pages, movies, advertisements, or any other content. The tattoo may be commanded to display authentication credentials (such as images and passwords) that unlock a car or provide access to a computer or hotel room. The tattoo may display moods of the user with appropriate colors (e.g., red for “anger” or “blue” for sadness) or images (smiley/sad faces).

  25. Rolling Stones say they were already working on eerie ‘Ghost Town’ coronavirus lyrics pre-lockdown
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/entertainment/2020/04/rolling-stones-say-they-were-already-working-on-eerie-ghost-town-coronavirus-lyrics-pre-lockdown.html

    According to The Guardian, frontman Mick Jagger insists the strangely prophetic lyrics to ‘Living In A Ghost Town’ – all about being locked up and alone – were already being worked on before the pandemic struck.

    “Life was so beautiful/Then we all got locked down… Please let this be over/Stuck in a world without end,” is another refrain.

    Jagger says the Stones were recording new music pre-lockdown but decided they should revisit and release ‘Living In A Ghost Town’ while in isolation.

    “We thought it would resonate through the times that we’re living in right now. We’ve worked on it in isolation. And here it is,” he told the Guardian.

    NME called the song a “rushed and half-baked comment on our current predicament” while Vulture said it landed “in the sweet spot between wistful boomer nostalgia and tacit acknowledgment that the sands of time have shifted”.

    Virus, recession and ‘institutional racism at all levels’ hit Māori, Pasifika
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/virus-recession-and-institutional-racism-all-levels-hit-m-ori-pasifika

    Although the virus was brought into the country by those in a financial position to travel internationally, the threat the pandemic poses is highest for our most vulnerable: those living on or below the poverty line, in low-quality housing, with precarious employment and poor health outcomes.

    Add an economic crisis to the equation, which has already led to job losses and will likely pull more people into poverty, and the situation becomes more bleak.

    “People at the bottom of the pile get trampled on the worst when a recession happens,” says economist Shamubeel Eaqub, “and this is going to be the mother of all recessions.”

    The cumulative effects of colonisation mean that in this country, the people at the bottom of the pile tend to be Māori and Pasifika.

The first major case in the US was in the Washington state care home. Similarly we knew from Italy they were particularly vulnerable. The experts should not have even needed that evidence –every winter we know they have issues with infections.
    But as I recall it was not until late March that the MOH sent out a notice to all DHBs saying they must check procedures at the homes in their area.

    ACT leader David Seymour appeared on Facebook video blog The Daily Jase and questioned the modelling provided to the Government by health experts that said if eradication fails, up to 14,400 Kiwis could die from COVID-19.

    “That really I think is not quite right. I think the risk posed by the virus is not as great as it was sold to us,” said Seymour, MP for Epsom.

    • More to the point the lockdown was sold on the basis that it would depress a spike of cases that promised to overwhelm the system.

      It was not imposed to facilitate a madwoman’s dream of eliminating Covid-19 from NZ.

    • 1-Siouxsie Wiles is a Pommy land whale with stupid hair.

      2- David Seymour is an elected representative and the hardest working one in Parliament – by a long shot

      I consider No 2 speaks for me.
      No 1 is just flapping gums rolling about in a vacant lot.

        • The truckie was the fuckwit who killed them.
          Police are searching his home while he recovers in hospital after an “episode.”
          Culpability lies with the truckie.
          The Porsche driver was wasted on meth and is definitely a class act ignoramus.

          • Yes. Sounds like the truck driver had a heart attack during or after the the ‘accident’. Well you would wouldn’t you if you’d just killed 4 cops! If he was on the phone or anything was dodgy with his driving beforehand his life as he knows it is done for sure.

            • Sounds like the truck veered off into the road shoulder, which would suggest either a medical event or gross distraction.

  34. Why Do Narcissists Make Such Poor Leaders?

    You want to believe the people in charge who deliver their words with great confidence. However, what if these are people you’ve come to conclude from their past behavior that they derive their self-assurance from the grandiose form of narcissism? Does it make you wonder whether they have your best interests in mind or does it seem that they just want to grab the limelight?

  35. New Zealand Becomes a Dream Escape Destination Amid Pandemic as Demand For Bunkers Increases

    The company has installed around 10 private multi-million-dollar shelters in New Zealand in the last couple of years, as many wealthy Americans saw the green island as a perfect destination in case of any apocalyptic events. Another underground shelter network company Vivos has already installed a spacious 300-person bunker in the South Island, near the city of Christchurch, according to its founder Robert Vicino, who says that he recently got some calls from potential clients who were eager to obtain their own bunkers on the island.
