  1. The clowns in charge say that testing is “not up to their expectations”, as if this somhow absolves them from responsibility. FS, they’re at the top of the pile. It’s their gig. They tell people what they expect, and it’s their responsibility to ensure those instructions are carried through. They couldn’t manage a corner dairy between the lot of them.

  2. The coronavirus is a force of nature (like the climate). It cannot be argued with. It has no remorse. It absolutely will not give up.
    It is the littlest terminator.
    This government had better start to deal with the situation.

  3. Streaming classes in schools enables teachers to teach at the level and speed that the students can manage. This is now being called out as “racist”. FS they’re being streamed on ability, not skin colour.

    “Māori high school students unfairly streamed in low-ability classes, report finds”
    “School streaming is racist and destroys the confidence of the students placed at the “bottom of the pile”, a report has found.”

    Judge blasts police for prosecuting one of their own senior officers

    A judge has launched a scathing attack on Police’s decision to prosecute one of their own after the man was acquitted of domestic violence.

    Judge Kevin Phillips also found the high-ranking officer not guilty on a charge of possessing a firearm without a licence when he gave his verdicts yesterday following a two-day judge-alone trial at Dunedin District Court.

    On the face of it a good common sense ruling.

  5. This is one of the most sinister things I’ve seen! Fining doctors for prescribing HCL

    Queensland (Labor) State government – actually issued a medical advisory prohibiting use of HCL for Covid.

    And at the bottom under the FAQ where they ask
    Does Hydroxychloroquine cure COVID-19?

    The answer is not the obvious “No” which they would use if they were sure of their facts and they weren’t trying to kill people by withholding an efficacious medical treatment.

    No! The response to the FAQ is a carefully crafted legally water-tight babblespeak which absolutely and totally fails to answer any aspect of the FUCKING FAQ!

    To date, there is no specific medicine recommended to prevent or treat the new coronavirus (COVID-19). Some specific treatments are under investigation and will be tested through clinical trials.

    Which tells me all I need to know ie that HCL works. Clearly, they were worried about lying about HCL and the possible legal ramifications given:
    – there are studies that show HCL is effective
    – many 3rd world nations are experiencing miniscule death rates because they’re using HCL
    – world leaders and celebrities are getting HCL
    – dozens of Drs in the US have made public statements that HCL/Zithromyacin works

    Note how this is only a prohibition on HCL – there is nothing about HCL in combination with Zithromyacin being prescribed. That would be an interesting test case.

    And what does it say when the government makes it illegal for a drug that might work? Don’t we want to explore EVERY avenue? If someone is dying isn’t it better to try HCL/ZM rather than just let gasp out? If even one life was saved through the placebo effect – wouldn’t it still be worth taking a risk when there is no other possible treatment.

    This is pure evil we are watching unfold around us. It’s all about profit and corrupt politicians are doing this to us. It’s one of the most disgusting episodes of human history and I think it is up there with what happened to 6 millions Jews (except this is happening to 1.5 billion in the western world)

    I wish Trump would hurry the fuck up and put all the corrupt socialist kiddie fuckers in Gitmo so all this bollox can be put a stop to.

    • Do I assume from that the Doctors can prescribe HQC for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and malaria prevention but just not for Covid?
      If it is a ban for all problems then a lawyer(s) need to drag these bureaucrats in Court and sue their rear off.
      But if the ban is just for Covid how do the idiots monitor it, when it is available for the other health problems?

      Totally agree with you DP when you say “This is pure evil we are watching unfold around us”. I have been saying the same for a few months.

      • I read a while back that Australia had a limited supply, very small stocks, only enough set up, for the lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis and such.
        It was pointed out that it is debilitating and crippling if they do not get it.
        They feared they would be cleaned out.
        That would create major hardship if those patients do not get it.

        Time wise, whether the systems have tried to get more stock in, or is it feasible?
        Or a who knows who.
        What the issue is seems to be of supply, like NZ stocks of medicine, and doctors barred from issuing more than a months supply of meds, where previously it was a standard 3 months supply.

        Still worth looking into, where it is produced, and can a country get it?

        India is the major producer of it, and they were helping other countries like Brazil,
        The demand is strong, and Aussie is way down the list.
        Not even enough for frontline staff

        • My GP told me that NZ is restricting HCQ so as to ensure sufficient supplies for those who use it for other problems such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. I have arthritis and asked if I could have some for it and he just laughed. Cruel bastard!

          • Like Alice mentioned, to be prescribed, if it is suitable for the condition.
            They should not be able to use the excuse of over the counter and then people ‘gorging’ excessive ignorant amounts.

            Having been through a bit in the health system, there are Doctors, and doctors, and why 2nd opinions or more may be needed. Some Dr’s advice can even seem to be contrary to each other.

            Even then there are reactions to some medicines, that work well for some people, then the body reacts, in bizarre ways, which I have experienced.
            I would suspect that I may not be able to take Hydroxychloroquine but I do support much more investigation of it, to use it, and to get in enough to target it at the ones that do get affected.

            The sad part is the lack of transparency of the Health Department, and even worse is the politicization that subtly aims for marxism.

            Trials, Research, Studies, but that is not the driver of the ones who want tick box scientific, socialistic, humanist, politico, degrees.

            Thanks Ross12 as reading up some basics of Clive Palmer, as he seems to know how to rattle the cages of “virtue signallers” politicians bureaucracy & media. :-).
            One of the reasons they want to bring him down, as he is good thorn in their sides.

            A million doses may not go so far, though I do not know if it is to be used as ‘preventive’.
            Did it get into hospitals for immediate treatment? then what was the outcome.
            Why the blank? which leads onto:-

            Just what is being done in the hospitals? in NZ? and Australia?
            Just being in hospital, are they on a drip? an oxygen boost? besides routine temp, blood-pressure monitoring, bloods tested, etc.
            Come on, is there an actual treatment going on?

            Even ICU seems to be low in Covid use numbers.
            ICU makes me think of ventilators, catheters, drips, though not exactly true either. It is just more on hand, and the plugs are almost in place.
            At this stage our death rate does seem very low.

            Where are those reports on actual hospital ‘going ons’ treatments? medicines? what is the usual? when people are hospitalized.
            Shane Reti, find it & bring it out.
            Enough facts for the experts, plus in the layman’s understanding. 🙂

      • In Africa HQC is bought at the local dairy and it is mandatory, to take it if you want to stay alive. The side effects, as I recall from being on safari 30 years ago, are minimal and sure beats dying or a life time of suffering bouts of Malaria. There appears to be an agenda being followed by the powers that be.

  6. Cindy must have had her knickers in a bunch yesterday, having to front up in parliament yesterday to face Judith Collins. So breathed a sigh of relief and did another little dance last thursday after they rose at the end of this term!
    Now she has had a bad weekend and monday and has to front up.
    The only dancing she was doing yesterday was on the head of a pin!
    She was certainly singing a little diddy!

    • Excellent piece, it seems to be a trait of the leftists never to accept the blame for anything. If they actually wrote balanced reports we would still buy the papers. Herald phoned me to have a free trial I said no thank you I am not interested in reading the herald, its not worth the paper its written on. The fact is the leftists mostly love the free stuff so they won’t pay, seems to me they are on a hiding to nothing.

        Anyone else noticed the campaign to persuade the public that anyone who speaks against the current officially approved line of thought has been sucked in by a “conspiracy”. There are warnings everywhere about staying alert.

    She says if National is “fortunate enough” to be elected the party will ensure safer borders so New Zealand wouldn’t have to go back into lockdown.

    “Let’s put it this way – we actually would test. If we say we’re going to do it, we actually will do it,” she said.

    • China going hungry is what everything is about at present. Trump upset their economy at a time when they needed to fill up the piggy bank as much as possible so they could feed their billions during the upcoming Solar Minimum. China knows history, they know that every major dynasty has fallen during a Solar Minimum because hungry peasants go into uprising and kill all their overlords. Have a guess what the Pig Farmer and his CCP colleagues don’t want to happen to their overlordship.

      Covid is about destroying the West’s economy so that the havoc that Trump wreaked on the Chinese economy (by using tariffs to stop the CCP ignoring all the free trade rules and undermining the US’s supply chain). The problem is that the CCP did not think that the sheeple in the West would buy the huge lie pushed by CCP’s left wing operatives in the US, Canada, Europe etc about Covid – it was more successful than they could have dreamed of. And now they’re going all in to utterly destroy Western capitalism.

      A hungry China is an expansionist China. Where is the least well-defended little green and lush land in China’s orbit of influence? That’s right – NZ – one or two warships and 500 troops would easily be enough to conquer NZ in a lightning strike. Once they have a toehold – who is going to help us? The US – after Cindy’s disgraceful behaviour? I don’t think so. Trump is done sacrificing US lives for nothing worthwhile.

      • Two warships and 500 troops. Yep that would do. The NZ Army once had a reputation of being one the best armed forces in the world. Now they are little
        more than an emasculated boy scout peace keeping outfit ,with a focus on Maori culture and doing hakas. And we have Helen Klarkenfuhrer to thank for
        eviscerating the strike wing of the Air Force when the bitch decided to scrap
        the Skyhawk squadron. Again, those pilots were at the top of their game. I know this because I saw them in action.
        Maybe the planes were getting a bit old, but the IDF had the same
        planes which were retrofitted to come up to spec. NZ could have done the same. Now we have nothing to defend our country with.
        Might be a good idea to start learning Mandarin.

  8. To lighten things up here are a couple of Jokes – lest we forget. David Clarke and another Clarke not Helen but funny Clarke & Labour do seem to produce r soles.

    The house was in darkness
    Apart from one light
    And the sound of odd noises
    disrupting the night

    The neighbours were curious
    Who could it be
    Was the shape in the shadows
    The strange Doctor C

    But what was he doing here
    He had a new home
    And why would he be here
    At night, all alone

    They were aware of the problems
    He’d said they were true
    That he’d been an idiot
    Which they already knew

    And here he was skulking
    Alone in the glow
    With no one to talk to
    And nowhere to go

    Jacinda had said
    I know what I’ll do
    There are 20 in cabinet
    You’re now 22

    And so she took over
    She sent him away
    Back to Dunedin
    But still on full pay

    But he didn’t need to worry
    No reason at all
    He’d still be a minister
    Whatever the call

    It’s winter, and Cindy is happily playing in the snow when she sees a patch of yellow up ahead. She hurries up there and see that it’s writing. It says, “Dump Cindy.” Naturally, she is furious. She calls in the chief plod and and demands he finds out who committed this atrocity. Soon there are cops running around questioning everybody, issuing subpoenas, etc. etc.
    Finally the chief plod comes to her and says, PM, I have good news and bad news.”
    “Good news first,” says Cindy, and the chief plod says, “We have tested the urine, and it belongs to Clark.”
    “Grrrrrrrr,” says Cindy. “I’ll have a talk with the him about that. All right, so what’s the bad news?”
    The chief Plod backs up a few steps. “The handwriting belongs to gollyG.

  10. Another Joke – I am having fun today –

    My wife and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop
    writing out a parking ticket.
    We went up to him and I said, “come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?”
    He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an “asshole.”
    He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires.
    So Judith (my wife)called him a “shithead.”
    He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started
    writing more tickets.
    This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
    He finally finished, sneered at us and walked away. Just then our bus arrived, and we got
    on it and went home. We always look for cars with Vote Liarbour stickers.
    We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired.

  12. Judith Collins was very polite, perhaps too polite, with Radio NZ and Corrin Dann this morning despite their very low standards of interviewing ethics. It was a masterclass in handling a hostile interviewer.

    I noted Dann interrupted answers and cut Judith Collins off or her sound was muted so her comments could not be completed. I was more interested in what Judith had to say rather than Dann seeking a potential “gotcha answer” to a pathetic question.

    Very biased in my observation and not letting Judith Collins explain her position. Media, including Radio, should be enabling questioning of government actions as they constantly probe for the truth.

  13. Interesting article from a German pathologist:

    Healthy people should not be afraid of infection: “The fear that this is a killer virus and that many will die from it is completely exaggerated,” said Püschel. “We have to make it clear that we don’t want to be in a glass case. We can’t protect ourselves from everything. And this virus is a comparatively low risk.” The virus is also by no means a death sentence for the elderly and sick. “Most will survive the disease there,” said Püschel.

    “This virus affects our lives in a completely exaggerated way. This is out of proportion to the risk posed by the virus,” says the renowned medical examiner. “I am convinced that corona mortality will not even make itself felt as a peak in annual mortality.” There is no reason for fear of death in connection with the spread of the disease in the Hamburg region.”

This is probably wishful thinking on my part, but I’m getting the feeling this second, unnecessary lock down (which was very obviously a political manoeuvre, with nothing to do with health ) might turn out to be a ” movement of the worm ” moment for this election. ( Remember the Peter Dunne comment and worm moving in the debate many years ago).

    Interviews like the pathetic Dann interview will just make Judith Collins dig her toes in and I think she not stop going to the interviews but will come up with a way to skewer Dann –he is stupid and arrogant enough to think he is “winning”.

    NeoFace is controversial for its other major use globally – identifying up to 1000 “persons of interest” per minute in real-time feeds from CCTV cameras.

    In the UK this month, an appeals court ruled the use by police in Wales of NeoFace was unlawful and a violation of human rights.

  19. Woods blames returning Kiwi for mingling with other quarantine guests at different stage of isolation.

    Coronavirus: Megan Woods questions credibility of Kiwi who says groups mingled in managed isolation
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/08/coronavirus-megan-woods-questions-credibility-of-kiwi-who-says-groups-mingled-in-managed-isolation.html

    A recently-returned New Zealander has hit back at minister Megan Woods for taking a crack at his credibility after he claimed different groups had been mixing in managed isolation.

    He called for better management of returnees at different stages of the 14-day period, claiming staff are managing “a spread of 14 days in one facility”.

    “It’s not that hard to [group] people together,” he said.

    Woods dismissed the allegations of poor management, implying that if any “mixing and mingling” of returnees had occurred, it was because Lunjevich had breached the rules.

    “If he claims he was mixing and mingling with other people, that is well below the expectations… I think that individual needs to take some responsibility for his actions inside the facility.”

    • Early stages of Covid-19 Level 4 lockdown ruled unlawful by High Court

      The Government message to isolate at home at the start of the national Covid-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown was justified, but unlawful, according to a judgement from the High Court.
      https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/early-stages-covid-19-level-4-lockdown-ruled-unlawful-high-court

      For nine days between March 26 and April 3, the order for people to stay at home and in their bubbles was justified but unlawful, according to the court.

      A law change on April 3 then made the lockdown legal. The High Court said its ruling today has no effect on restrictions after April 3, including the current restrictions in the Auckland region.

      Lawyer Andrew Borrowdale sought a judicial review of the legality of the early stages of the lockdown against the Director-General of Health and the Attorney-General in the High Court in Wellington last month.

      In court Mr Borrowdale’s lawyer, Tiho Mijatov, said the Government needed to follow the law and couldn’t make rules by decree.

      • I heard a Radio report from a Minister indicating a view the Court agreed with the governments actions. Yes, maybe, but also noted they were not lawful andthat needed to be attended too.

        I expect the government to act only in a lawful manner. I do not accept that Select committees can be dispensed with or response times shortened. I do not accept it is reasonable to rush legislation in the dead of night. I am not OK with the Arms Act amendments made without awaiting the Report of the Royal Commission set up to examine the situation post Tarrants act of violence and murder.
        This governments record is not one to be proud off or repeated.

    Mali president resigns after military mutiny, dissolves parliament

    President Keita, Prime Minister Boubou Cisse and other top government officials were earlier detained by mutinying soldiers, worsening a national crisis in a country already grappling with a jihadist insurgency and mass protests.

    UN chief Antonio Guterres demanded “the immediate and unconditional release” of Mali’s president and members of his government.

    “The secretary-general strongly condemns these actions and calls for the immediate restoration of constitutional order and rule of law in Mali,” a spokesman for Guterres said in a statement.

    The UN Security Council is planning emergency discussions about Mali on Wednesday.

    The second round of votes, in April, was disrupted in the country’s volatile north and central areas. Later, Mali’s constitutional court overturned the results of some 30 seats, a move that was advantageous for 10 candidates in President Keita’s party.

    In June, public anger at the government’s handling of the elections spilled onto the streets in the capital Bamako. The June 5 Movement — Rally of Patriotic Forces, known as M5-RFP, have held further anti-government protests, with many demanding Keita resign. Fourteen people were killed during protests in July.

    Kati saw a mutiny in 2012 that led to a coup d’etat that ousted then-President Amadou Toumani Toure and contributed to the fall of northern Mali into the hands of jihadi militants.

    • I spent nearly three years in Mali in the early eighties. I enjoyed my time there a lot and was happy. I would love to have driven the trans Sahara route via Tammanrasset (which I visited in the mid seventies) and Gao to Bamako but never got the chance.

  22. Ardern hits back after Collins criticises new appointments to bolster border testing as ‘another working group’

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has shot down Opposition leader Judith Collins’ claim that the appointment of a new team to help the Ministry of Health bolster border testing is “another working group”.

    On her way to the House, Ms Collins told reporters: “I’m starting to think that they might as well just make Brian and Heather Cabinet Ministers and be done with it.”

    She said Cabinet had “dropped the ball” when it came to setting the parameters for the Ministry of Health to carry out testing at the border, and that there was no point in blaming the ministry.

    “Why has the Prime Minister had to bring in another working group today of Heather Simpson and Sir Brian Roche?” she asked.

    Ms Ardern replied: “We haven’t.

  24. Get on and vote for David Seymour!!!!! Some of these I know and don’t like for obvious reasons and some I have heard of vaguely. David Seymour seems to be one of the frontrunners? He was the only human I would vote for, otherwise it would have been Mittens – at least cats are definitely not lefties! 🐱

  25. South Auckland, now Parnell Apartment

    COVID-19: Person in Auckland apartment complex tests positive for coronavirus

    “All other residents in both buildings are considered ‘causual contacts’. This means they have not been close enough to the person with the virus, or for long enough to be at higher risk,” the letter says.

    The apartment complex is made up of two buildings. One has 115 apartments and the other has 105, according to its website.

  26. You go Gerry, don’t back down and let the bastards off the hook! Gerry Brownlee says the msm coverage is pro labour.

    Gerry Brownlee says comment to supporters won’t whip up distrust of media
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/gerry-brownlee-says-comment-supporters-wont-whip-up-distrust-media?auto=6182017099001

    “With endless wall to wall coverage, the deep resources of Government, and a favourable media, it is hard for anyone not to see Labour have the cards stacked in their favour,” Mr Brownlee wrote in a campaign email asking National supporters for financial help ahead of the election.

    When asked today about the comment, Mr Brownlee said he was not undermining media, but instead “just stating a fact”.

    “When you have a situation like (the Covid-19 pandemic), and we experienced this with Christchurch (earthquake), the Government does get more air time than the Opposition does because it’s the Government that has to do things.”

    “The Prime Minister is on the airwaves everyday at 1pm.”

    Today, Mr Brownee said he was “not apologising for asking questions, that’s my job, I’m in Opposition”.

    “I’ve said I’m sorry people have taken it as some kind of conspiracy accusation, it was never meant to be like that.”

  28. Do they really think their lies won’t come back to bite them?!

    Government was advised testing all border staff wasn’t viable when Health Minister was promising it
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/08/government-was-advised-testing-all-border-staff-wasn-t-viable-when-health-minister-was-promising-it.html

    The Government was told it wasn’t workable.

    “It was actually logistically complex. I’ve said that a number of times,” Dr Bloomfield said on Wednesday.

    ACT leader David Seymour has questions for the Government.

    “Either they ignored the advice and told everyone they were testing everybody or worse still they took the advice, didn’t do the testing and then lied to the public,” he told Newshub.

  29. The world’s toughest lockdown has resulted in the world’s highest COVID-19 death toll

    Once hailed as a COVID-19 “success story,” Peru is now the COVID-19 case study that lockdown advocates no longer want to discuss. Lima is on pace to surpass Belgium (another strict lockdown country) sometime next week as having the world’s highest COVID-19 deaths per million. So why is no one talking about it?

    For months on end, Peruvians were largely forbidden from leaving their homes. The country began its lockdown like many others, by cutting itself off from the rest of the world, closing its borders to outsiders, and shutting down the nation’s economy and society.
