        • None of my children think any of my knowledge or life experience is worth listening to, frankly. And their children (my grandchildren) are being brainwashed by both their parents AND the schools propaganda centres that they attend.

          All my children are white, as are all my grandchildren. But their idea of a fun time is to go into marae for a weekend and bring back made-up Maori words to stick all over the fridge.

          Sometimes I can’t understand what they’re talking about because their sentences are so full of overly accentuated ‘Maori’ words thrown around at random to show how progressive they are.

          They would count their breaths to ration their carbon footprints….. except that in the ‘schools’ they attend they aren’t even taught to count.

          So no, I don’t have much hope that the drones will find out they are being lied to, until it’s far far too late.

        • White people are about 12% of the population of the world and that percentage is shrinking.
          Less than one in eight.

          So really , who is the minority?

          From Mr Goggle today. population
          India 1.366 billion
          China 1.4 billion
          Sub Sahara Africa approx 1.1 billion

          Whities, Not even close.
          Add in the diaspora of countries like China and India ….

          Dont hate me because I invent things to make your life better !!!

          It seems to be an extermination policy and yet many of the dumb-ass whites [esp those from the recent education(sic) system ] are for it.
          Comfortable middle class kids. Like where Mao Zedong came from.

          Education. It can be a scourge.

            This footage is a cut down of the full cringe of [UK] Labour 2019 party conference.

            The intro clips would have gone down well and resonated with “our Ardern”.
            Near the end it would have resonated well with Winston Peters views on capitalism, when putting Ardern in the spot light in 2017.

            Now how does this compare to the New Zealand Labour Party conferences.
            Are they unleashed now?

            Do the karens & kevins here in New Zealand even weigh up the consequences of what they have empowered.

            This is not an efficient way to communicate.

            In this country you will have people who claim to speak Te Reo. Of these people, what percentage could call up a Te Reo-speaking garage and tell the mechanic that their car has a problem and then describe that problem (in simple language) to the mechanic (all in Te Reo)?

            Te Reo is a language for ceremonies, virtue signaling, and getting a job in the public service.

          Like that will be useful in Southland.
          Good thing those zoom calls are available and he can mumble a recently invented language (by White missionaries for the most part , then pubic servants in Wellington) to other enthusiasts.

    • This is so EVIL I have copied the entire article here:

      A student at a Whangārei primary school had to stand up in front of their classroom and say what they had done to acknowledge their white privilege.

      Act Party leader David Seymour says this is just one example he’s heard from concerned parents about what he calls “racialised education”.

      But advocates of strategies to “de-colonise” Aotearoa’s classrooms say rather than “racialise”, such topics actually help dismantle the systemic racism that already exists, and holds back non-Pākehā students, particularly Māori.

      Seymour says his example comes from the mainstream school system, and he is taking aim at Ministry of Education programmes to further such teaching like Te Hurihanganui, launched in 2019 with a $42 million budget to address racism in the education system and improve outcomes for Māori learners and their whānau.

      The trial programme, run over three years, works at a community level, engaging iwi, schools and whānau in working out what their own priorities were for tackling racism in the education system.

      It is just one of numerous “anti-racism” strategies. Outside the Government, the Teaching Council this week launched its Unteach Racism campaign, fronted by film-maker Taika Waititi.

      Seymour said discussions around race and inequality were important, but he was concerned topics such as “white privilege” at a primary school level would in itself be “divisive”.

      “What are teachers supposed to say to a ‘white’ child who may have no money or food at home, be abused, face a learning challenge, or any other challenge? How is it that their colour makes them privileged regardless of their individual circumstances?”

      Act Party leader David Seymour says teaching about white privilege in schools is “racialised education”. Mark Mitchell
      Act Party leader David Seymour says teaching about white privilege in schools is “racialised education”. Mark Mitchell

      He cites the Blueprint for Te Hurihanganui, which explains: “Building critical consciousness means reflecting critically on the imbalance of power and resources in society, and taking anti-oppressive action to do something about it for the better. It means recognising white privilege, understanding racism, inequity faced by Māori and disrupting that status quo to strengthen equity.”

      Seymour said the Ka Hikitia reading list for teachers also contains a key paper which claims that “many whites believe their financial and professional successes are the result of their own efforts, while ignoring the fact of white privilege”.

      “White privilege may well exist at a statistical artefact but to tell students their colour is more important is a false premise and divisive,” Seymour said.

      “The Government needs to front up and tell New Zealanders why it is instead allowing such radical and divisive ideas to be taught to our kids.”

      Te Hurihanganui comes off the back of numerous reports and studies that have highlighted systemic racism in New Zealand’s education system, and how it holds back the learning of our children.

      Stark examples include how in 2019 NCEA level 2 attainment was 64.1 per cent for Māori, compared to 82 per cent for Pākehā. Meanwhile in Māori medium education, 78.7 per cent of Māori school leavers achieved at least NCEA level 2 equivalent.

      Programmes under Te Huirhanganui have been established in Porirua, Te Puke, Southland and Nelson this week, with two more yet to be confirmed, involving early childhood centres, primary schools and high schools working with mana whenua, parents and the wider community to build curriculums tailored to their rohe (area).

      Associate Education Minister (Māori) Kelvin Davis said Te Hurihanganui was the “opposite of divisive”.

      “I think that interpretation is ignorance breeding fear. [Te Hurihanganui] is about addressing systemic racism and building relationships.

      Davis said he could not say if white privilege was being taught yet, but the appropriate curriculums would be set by the communities involved, and made relevant to their circumstances.

      “We have an education system that is not addressing the needs of Māori, of Pasifika, so this is about tailoring aspects to address that.

      “It does mean looking at history, colonisation and its effects, and how Te Ao Māori views can be incorporated.

      “David Seymour is making it sound like some subversive thing to indoctrinate children, when it is all about addressing systemic issues.”

      What is white privilege?
      Education consultant Dr Ann Milne said it was “about time” the reality of white privilege was taught in the classroom.

      Rather than focusing on the racial aspect, it was more about cultural norms and normalised ways of doing things that privileged certain groups over others, she said.

      “It is not about white people per se but whiteness as a system.

      “One way to look at it is you are walking down the street and have a $10 note just put in your pocket, for no reason.

      “It is something you get just by the nature that everything works for your normal reality, not to do with wealth or anything.”

      Milne, who is Pākehā, with decades of experience, as a teacher, principal and now consultant, said she had never encountered any pushback from students nor their teachers teaching about white privilege.

      She first became aware of the concept when her children, of Māori heritage, were attending secondary school and began encountering everyday racism, and seeing how it held them back.

      “[Teaching about] white privilege if anything has been a great conversation starter at the dinner table. We shouldn’t underestimate the ability of children to understand these things either, they see them simply as fair and not fair.

      “Not teaching it does Pākehā a disservice, and Māori children will continue growing up thinking their position at the bottom of the heap is their fault, rather than the systems that keep them there.

      “It is not separatist, it is not racist, it is just acknowledging the system does not work for everybody.”

      Former NZ Principals Federation president Whetu Cormack was on the board that designed the blueprint for Te Hurihanganui.

      Asked if he thought teaching white privilege was racialising the education system, he responded: “The system is already racialised.”

      His Māori mother was beaten in schools for speaking her reo. And with a Pākehā father Cormack said he’s had many different experiences of racism and privilege in his own schooling.

      “This is about unpacking that racism, and acknowledging what privileges some have and others do not as a result is just part of that.”

      Hokonui Rūnanga kaitoko mātauranga Jo Brand is involved with the rollout of the programme in the east Southland rohe.

      She said it was “scary but exciting”, as the conversation about racism was not an easy one, but was important.

      They had 10 institutions involved, from high school to preschools, and each would develop their own curriculums, borne out of hui with mana whenua and the wider community.

      “It’s involving really basic things like who we are and who we got here, but in a really meaningful way, through to the dream of eradicating racism.”

      Addressing white privilege in particular was up to each institution, she said.

      “It’s too early to say exactly what the outcomes will be, but already it has strengthened the relationship between mana whenua and schools and great things will come from this.”

      • “It is not about white people per se but whiteness as a system.”

        So why mention white people? What a load of absolute racist tosh. It’s dumbing down the kids. If you can’t bring maori up then drag everyone else down – Cindy’s “team of 5 million”. No ‘tall poppies’ allowed in NZ except DL.

        It’s Marxist Group Identity. Everyone only identifies and supports their group. Divide and rule.

        While they’re at it, the govt could front up and explain why it allows so many kids AND MAORI KIDS IN PARTICULAR to leave school after 13 years of state education still unable to read, write and perform basic arithmetic.

        There’s the scandal.

          • This concept is so racist and wrong.
            Education should be about giving all children the tools and knowledge to get the best out of their life and in the process help to maintain this world.
            How they achieve these goals and compete is down to opportunity , ability.and motivation.
            Equality of opportunity is all the state should be offering.
            Apart from anything else EVERYONE pays the state for this.

            To select winners based on their ethnicity or any other non ability related criteria is wrong.
            Using race as selection criteria (for anything)the implications are that the particular race is unable to compete and therefore must be helped.This brings into question their IQ and abilities.
            This is an absolute insult to any race so selected.

      • That letter raised so many questions.
        Since when is she worried about the health and safety of staff? The number of sexual complaints from staff and the consequent (and ongoing)payouts would just about fund the starship deficit.

        • That is only the health and safety of those in parliament, no on else’s. The sexual complaints is just a way for them to give tax payer money to lower members of the party. If they gave that money to the starship it would go a long way, if they gave the hospitals the money they throw at the iwi’s, we would have the best funded health care anywhere in the world.

              The lying Ardern is their ace in the hole just as Key (like him or not) was for notional.

              The Liebour critters would not even vote for Robbers son in the three or more times he stood for the leader role.

              Robbers son has the deputy PM role now and that is probably the best he will achieve.

              Even Michael Cullen saw this from his position and he was not carrying the heavy burden of being a fat poof .

              They have the blueprint from Lange/Palmer.
              Merry Palmer was unelectable which is why he was rolled for Mike Moore 7 weeks from the election.

              At best robbers son would be a carry over to the next election.

  1. “Could another brain drain start?” Dude it started even before the travel bubble, here in southland many folk without kids up and left as soon as they could travel to aussie without quarantine there, as a result southland is now experiencing a hell of a labour shortage and its only going to get worse.

    I dont know if this translates to other regions but down here its very noticable and started last year, as a bonus too the aussie govt at one stage was offering a few grand to ppl who traveled to aussie for work, i think it was 2-3k they paid out.
    Several mates took advantage of it and now decided to stay permanent as the money is extremely good, rural australia is paying 30-40 an hour and most will pay for flights and all meals and accom supplied.
    If i didnt have kids me and wifey would be back there in a heartbeat.

    “Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer’s and the other one tested positive for HIV.
    We can’t tell which is which.”
    “That’s dreadful! Can you do the test again?” questioned Mrs.Sanders.

  4. The precedence of tikanga being granted allows all coastal waters of New Zealand to be claimed, and ruled and already applications are in the “pipeline” to go ahead.
    .
    High Court opens the door to tribal control of New Zealand’s foreshore and seabed. …..

    ….. In his precedent-setting decision, Justice Churchman found in favour of Bay of Plenty tribal claimants, giving them pretty much everything they wanted. ….
    .
    ….. elevating the status of ‘tikanga’ – Maori customary values and practices – above the common law requirements ….
    …. result in New Zealand’s entire coastline being handed over to Maori tribal interests …..
    .
    …. Customary Marine Title (CMT) ….
    ….. includes veto rights over all resource consents and conservation activities; involvement in coastal planning and policy development; the ability to charge commercial operators,
    impose rahui, and
    restrict public access through wahi tapu; and
    ownership rights to all non-nationalised minerals – including royalties from existing mining operations, …….
    .
    ….. law protects the rights of commercial fishing, navigation, and public access, as well as preventing customary title holders from regulating consent applications for existing marine reserves, aquaculture activities, or essential infrastructure operated by the Crown, port companies, and councils, expansion plans can be vetoed. ……
    .
    Justice Churchman awarded three CMT orders: a joint CMT between six applicants for the coast from Maraetotara to Tarakeha and out 12 nautical miles; …..
    .
    …… Protected Customary Rights (PCRs)
    ….. a wide range of activities including collecting whitebait, practicing baptism, launching boats, monitoring users of the area, and gathering sand, shells, and driftwood. …
    .
    …. Ancestors are the source of whakapapa and whakapapa is a tikanga that dictates Maori societal norms and relationships. In tikanga rather than there being an emphasis on exclusive individual or collective title to any part of land, the focus was on the use of and relationship with resources of the land and sea including manaakitanga.

    Perhaps most importantly for this litigation the concept of exclusion was fundamentally inconsistent with the tikanga values of manaakitanga and whakapapa.” ……….
    .
    …… others using a claimed area would not prevent a CMT being awarded because tikanga renders such matters irrelevant:
    “One of the consequences of holding an area in accordance with tikanga is the obligation of manaakitanga.
    That obligation can extend as far as sharing the resources of the takutai moana with non-Maori”. ….
    .
    …. in accordance with tikanga was determined by Maori advisors appointed by the Court: “The proper authorities on tikanga are those living persons who retain the matauranga, which is the knowledge or wisdom passed down to them by their ancestors…
    The two pukenga appointed were Dr Hiria Hape and Mr Doug Hauraki… The aspects which the pukenga suggested should influence the assessment of whether or not the specified area was held in accordance with tikanga, were identified as being ‘mana, tino rangatiratanga, kaitiakitanga, utu, tapu and take-utu-ea’.” ….

    Read it all your selves,, as E&OE in the order of shortening this, may not be tikanga. 🙁
    .
    2 more years of this government looks like this will all be in place.
    Ardern can simply say in all ‘kindness” that it a judicial thing that needs to be considered, whilst academia & media will only allow their propaganda to be distributed and controlled in debated or discussion.

      See the table at the bottom of https://www.cjpme.org/fs_007 Total Population in Palestine

      There was significant immigration of Jews into Palestine in the 1920s and 1930s. Many Jews would have been seeking a return to their “historical*” homeland.

      *European Jews who had been converts to Judaism in generations past (i.e., not of Semitic stock) would probably have had a strong image in their minds that Palestine was their “spiritual homeland.”

        • It’s tricky.
          If a people unified under religion and/or ethnicity have the numbers, the will, and the resources to form their own homeland, should they be prevented from doing so?
          If they win a war with neighbors bent on their destruction, does that give them the right to claim territory and continue as a state?

          So much of human history is like this.
          A big part of a nation’s endurance is its desire to maintain its population and to continue its identity (this is also in part why we have conflicts).
          Lose your identity and stop having children and you are eventually finished as a nation.

    He shows up many aspects of how media journalism uses “vapid supposition”, “subliminal suggestion”, “nebulous facts”, “circumstantial inference”, to link into “circular sourcing”, to influence, that “become assertions”,

    Eventually that law suit will come out with some pretty good numbers, as the NYT seems to be digging a bigger hole. 🙂

    Always good to see it easily explained here, as we can more easily see it and then explain how the New Zealand media also do the whole propaganda points.
    Now if some one can scrap off the scab off New Zealand journalism, that blinds the karens & kevins in their “security junky syndrome”, being an agent of fear, so that the politicians can go power & control.

  10. NEW ZEALAND MEDIA’S CONSTANT LYING ON CRITICAL RACE THEORY

    In the US, parents are fighting back bravely all across the country to stop Critical Race Theory (CRT) being taught to their kids. In NZ the media and their comrades in the education dept are still lying through their teeth about what it really is. They won’t even use the term CRT, and push it as a benign and benevolent teaching that only does good in that it fights racism. This is a lie. Its age old Marxist dogma wrapped in newspeak and pushing the same old class warfare and social division.

  11. Imitation is a form of flattery. Labour steals ACTS gang policy.

    ACT deputy leader Brooke van Velden praises Government for going after gangs
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2021/05/act-deputy-leader-brooke-van-velden-praises-government-for-going-after-gangs.html

    Earlier this week, Police Minister Poto Williams announced the Firearms Prohibition Orders (FPO) to combat the influence of gangs and organised crime.

    The Opposition ACT Party, the main critic of the Government’s firearm reforms in the wake of the Christchurch mosque shootings, has welcomed the latest legislation. ACT deputy leader Brooke van Velden cited her colleague Nicole McKee’s Member’s Bill, which proposed to increase the power of police to seize assets connected with significant criminal activity.

    Van Velden told Magic Talk’s Sunday Cafe New Zealand had to hit the gangs where it hurt to look after its citizens.

    “I actually agree with what the Government has come out with, in this last week, because it was practically ACT Party policy,” she told host Carly Flynn.

    The doctor gave nasska a jar and said, “Take this jar home and bring back a sperm sample tomorrow.”
    The next day nasska reappeared at the doctor’s office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.
    The doctor asked what happened and nasska explained, “Well, doc, it’s like this first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. ‘Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, the with her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing.
    “We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin’ it between her knees, but still nothing.”

    Govt adopts race-based procurement

    “At least 5 percent of the total number of procurement contracts awarded each year by the government must be awarded to Maori businesses, according to guidelines released last December. See Government procurement

    For government procurement purposes, a Maori business is defined as one that has at least 50 percent Maori ownership or a Maori authority as defined by the Inland Revenue Department.

    The Ministry of Maori Development Te Puni Kokiri is working in partnership with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment on this project with implementation monitored by a Ministry project team named Te Kupenga Hao Pauaua.

    All government agencies procuring any goods and services must provide a report that shows that at least 5 percent of their procurement is from Maori businesses.

    How many New Zealanders are aware that the Government has extended race-based affirmative action into procurement? Is this how the Government expands institutional racism?”

    Where does the plan say two govts under tribal rule?

    “Where does the He Puapua plan propose for New Zealand two governments under tribal rule and who or what would such a dual-government system be accountable to – the people of New Zealand or some other entity?

    Accountability is one aspect of the plan that has not been publicised. Crown accountability is detailed on pages 14-15 of the plan. There we find that the Crown would no longer be accountable to the people of New Zealand. Instead, the Crown would be accountable to:

    The United Nations Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
    The United Nations Special Rapporteur.
    Other United Nations bodies
    The Human Rights Council’s review process.
    Monitoring by a tribally-created committee is detailed on page 14, where it says that the Aotearoa Independent Monitoring Mechanism should have the role of monitoring the New Zealand government’s compliance with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

    The Independent Monitoring Mechanism was established by the Iwi Chairs Forum in 2015 and is led by the Maori sovereignty activist Margaret Mutu, the Auckland University professor who once infamously declared that New Zealand citizens without Maori ancestry could only be regarded as visitors to New Zealand.

    The requirement for compliance monitoring by a group created by the Iwi Chairs Group makes the whole system subject to the United Nations and monitored by Mutu’s Aotearoa Independent Monitoring Mechanism.

    In other words, the top entity in the proposed new constitutional arrangement is an entity created by tribes, and this entity operates to enforce overall control by the United Nations.

    This is a bit of a surprise since we as the citizens of New Zealand who regularly vote political parties in and out of power expect the government of New Zealand to be accountable to us.”

    Treasonous to me.
    The people better rise up and give the politicians the message that we do not vote for the UN and they had better renounce this agreement immediately.

          He did get people coming home again but he also allowed in lots of people we really don’t want. He’s a diversity kind of guy you know. He managed to botch the earthquake recovery process. And so on.

                Of course it works in favour of some people such as real estate agents, big retailers that benefit from increased sales, the whole housing ponzi, chinese that were funding National , and so on.
                Key was influenced by big business without tempering the policy with consideration of the other effects such as congestion, kiwis losing out to immigrants with big money, tax paying kiwis that were essentially funding the infrastructure required, loss of our way of life etc.
                I preferred Mike Reddells approach myself.

            Now effectively a capital gains tax at 39%.

            – bullshited about having a banking hub in NZ. He didn’t even lift a Biro off the desk to make that happen.

            -raised benefits for people who never even would vote for him but no tax cuts in 8 years for those that did (2010 was a tax source swap, as stated)

            – never really curtailed the pubic service as he said he would . About two and half thousand over 8 years, more sinking lid than real reduction.

            – never touched WFF or Interest free Student loans

            – said all Maori deals would be settled by 2013. All crap.

  22. Over 4,000 key positions are political appointments, and about a quarter of these have to go through the US Senate. But Team Biden was thinking ahead: they had over 1,000 of the appointments that do not require Senate confirmation, already in place and ready to start work immediately after the President’s inauguration. I call that hitting the ground running.

    With respect to the key appointments – Secretary of State, Treasury Secretary etc – forget the usual debate about “diversity” vs “competency”. President Biden has managed to tick both boxes. Only five of his 15 Cabinet appointments are straight, white, men (unsurprisingly, I’m wholly in favour of appointing a solid contingent of competent straight, white men, but you can have too much of a good thing).

    For example, Lloyd Austin, the first African American soldier to be chosen as Secretary of Defence, was already a distinguished four-star General in charge of Centcom (US Central Command).

    No wonder the NZ diplomatic outfit and that Nats are so fucking stupid.

    Judith Collins has accused the Government of a “radical departure” from how parties have historically led New Zealand.

    At the Mainland Regional Conference on Sunday, the National Party leader said the Labour Party has “begun to govern with a new, radical interpretation” of the Treaty of Waitangi and its view is in the Māori version, Te Tiriti, the tino rangatiratanga granted to the chiefs results in iwi sovereignty.

    “Labour’s Deputy Leader, Kelvin Davis, has talked about two spheres of government: kawanatanga – the Government, and rangatiratanga – iwi sovereignty,” Collins says.

    “Jacinda Ardern has said that consultation with Māori hasn’t worked and that her Government is now working in partnership.

    “Andrew Little has said the Crown has obligations under the Treaty to allow for decision-making rights. He expects his new Māori Health Authority to be constructed in a way that gives effect to rangatiratanga.

  28. There isn’t much left of Jim Bolger’s legacy. His reforms in introducing market discipline in health and education didn’t survive Helen Clark’s administration, and although he did oversee the sale of some State Owned Enterprises this was timid compared to what Roger Douglas and Richard Prebble had accomplished.

    Bolger left us with MMP, so thanks for that, Jim. He also began the current round of Treaty of Waitangi settlements, although some commentators feel that Sir Doug Graham deserves the credit for this development. I suspect Sir Doug might be one of those commentators.

    There is one feature of Bolger’s regime that has endured: the Employment Contracts Act 1991 and its successors.

    This reform ended the long winters of discontent where industrial action was a central feature of our industrial relations regime. Many readers will have no memory of the institutional madness that Bolger’s reforms ended.

    Well it was Bill Birch who did that not Bolger the great useless Helmsman.

  33. Langley-area man loses 2 metres of intestine after a blood clot following his AstraZeneca jab
    Warning: Medical images in this story may be disturbing

    A formerly healthy 43-year-old father from Langley — who is in hospital recovering from complications following a blood clot — is warning others to watch for signs of trouble after receiving an AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine.

    Shaun Mulldoon and his wife Tara say that doctors confirmed to them that he’s a victim of the rare but dangerous syndrome linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine. The clot in his abdomen will leave him with life-long effects after two metres of his small intestine was removed.

    Health officials said Thursday at a man in his 40s in the Fraser Health region is one of the two British Columbians known to be affected by the syndrome, but health authorities will not comment on individual cases.

    • Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry confirmed that B.C. health officials are watching for incidence of the syndrome associated with AstraZeneca.

      “It’s a very serious thing. Once you have antibodies to your platelets, they clump together. That can lead to very severe plugging of some of our important blood vessels. Yes, very challenging, very serious. It seems, though, that you’re more likely to develop it the first time you’re exposed to the vaccine,” Henry said this week. “We’re watching very carefully.”

      Fisman believes that Canada may have initially missed signals about the rate of risk as AstraZeneca initially was given to older people so strokes caused by the vaccine may have gone undetected.

    • It seems that all these Doctors, health bureaucrats, do not seem to realize this is a trial !
      The whole system is breaking down, as they can not do the follow up, as they allowed too many in the trial.
      A trial runs with limited numbers, the reasoning behind that is to flatten the curve, if there is any problem so that Doctors, hospitals can cope, and give all the attention to the “guinea pigs” that they deserve.

      Constant monitoring, and if any one had any issue, side effect they should be all over it, investigating, testing, analyzing, comparison, and that is time consuming, and takes up staff numbers.
      That is why there is only a small certain number in a trial !

      It seems it is all being treated as a game, and the governments, health departments have unleashed the Doctors, researchers, scientists, that enjoy the part of being Dr. Josef Mengele unleashed.
