    • Yaeah well , I’m getting pissed off with cleaning up other peoples shit.
      Crappy politicians, crappy local ones, crapy legislation around most things.
      Crappy attitudes from a big sector of the residents.
      Crap from the RBNZ and the banks.

      Has to be a better way.

      Can we start a new country please.

          No fun anymore.
          Rates just went up 33%.
          and so it goes so fuck em.

          With the predictions of colder weather I just might move to someplace warm.

          • Tauranga? 33% is just the first of many rises isnt it viking?
            It seems both local and central govt have little self control when it comes to blowing others money. What will rates and taxes look like in 10yrs, i doubt much of the infrastructure the rises are “justified” for will be either built or functioning properly. Nz has become one huge money pit that seems to swallow funds and nothing in return.

        I’d support separation at the Cook Strait. Then Aotearoa can, correctly and accurately have the North and those of us who want to live in New Zealand can move to the South.

        As a bonus, we’d get rid of the Far North, Auckland, Rotovegas, Wellington and the Beehive, remove a city from Jacinda’s perpetual apology list.

        What’s not to like?

        • Pascal, theres been a group that have tried for years to get south island independance. Personally i love the idea except i fear many of the undesirables from the north will want to go south once they realise how shit their aotearoa has become.
          On the plus side the green freaks of the south wont have much to whinge about as we have ample renewable energy down here, cut the cable at cook straight and let the north drift away in darkness 🙂

        • Leave all the socialist academic fucken silly woke white bitches up there 2. Its not the white just the entitled arrogant me2 bitches that think they actually know how to be more Maori than Maori.
          Noticed all TV ads now have wiped the existence of the Caucasian male, which being one myself I don’t really give a fuck if thats how silly they want to be, but notice the token maori guy is always just a little bit dumber than the white woman usually correcting him on something. Fucken unbelievable.
          Pathetic entitlement.

  1. And the socilaists are still giving money to the bleeding heart socialists.
    Wonder what has to do to become a beneficiary of these spendthrift bastards?

    Auckland Film Studios gets $30 million government funding for expansion
    Auckland Film Studios is getting $30 million from the Government to expand its capacity.

    Auckland Council is chipping in another $5m for the overall $35m project, which will see two new 2000-square-metre sound stages and other buildings added to the West Auckland site.

    Projects filmed at the council-owned studios include Xena: Warrior Princess, The Chronicles of Narnia, Whale Rider, Power Rangers and more.

  3. Morning Troopers,

    “Gestures will not cut it. The weekend’s apology to the Pasifika community for the dawn raids was hollow. Under Ardern, between May 2020 and May 2021, 223 raids for overstayers occurred, 19 at dawn.”

  5. Seymour was on to the issue of bastardising the name of our country but my thinking is this.
    It was a mistake to make a certain language ‘official’
    What does that mean?
    It has become twisted just like the twisting of the TOW.
    Official has been taken as an opportunity to elevate a language to a position it should not hold.It has been taken as an opportunity to infiltrate every aspect of our lives and thus indoctrinate the masses to a point where we now have a minor language trying to muscle out the dominant and main language.
    Solution.
    I believe English should be made the National language of New Zealand.It is the language common to all and understood by all (unless immigrants that do not want to understand)
    English should be the language used in Parliament and in Government bodies.
    This other language can be recognised but not elevated to exclude or replace , the National language of the country.

      • Sorry Waikatogirl, but English is not an official language of New Zealand as it has not been codified in any statute. Only Maori and sign language have that distinction.

        English is certainly the most widely spoken language though and is a de-facto official language.

            • In the past nobody with integrity dreamed English would need protection from its status as NZ’s main language. Making Maori and sign language ‘official’ was meant as nothing more than appeasement. Marxism was not in the wheelhouse, it wasn’t even on the boat…

          • Now you can see why English should be recognised as the ‘National ‘ language otherwise we will have an ongoing argument over the place of lesser used languages.
            The elite minority will keep hitting us over the head with the ‘official’ hammer.

  7. I am in a Messenger group with my sons and a few of their mates..all like minded people.
    Last night there was some covid related discussion, as most of them are living in Australia.

    I wrote…”Saw a chart yesterday showing the total number of deaths in the States from all causes for each year from 2015 with the percentage given of the increase/decrease…(eg up or down 1% or 2%) from the previous year..from memory, 2016 deaths were up 2% from 2015 and 2020 were up 2% from 2019…in other words last years actual death total was what you would expect to see in any normal year without a pandemic.. A total hoax.

    One of the sons mates replied..
    “My mum is a funeral arranger in Leeds.

    She works for leeds city council and covers 5 districts.

    They max budget for 1% total deaths per annum per population (10 per 1000) from all deaths.

    This fluctuates from 9 (low) to 11 (high) per 1000 people.

    In 2020 they had 12 per 1000 for the whole year… this was an above average busy year.

    However in 2021 they are on track for 10 per 1000.. 1% and this is also inline with wider UK statistics.

    Basically a slightly above normal year, and given the larger problem of undiagnosed cancer deaths, heart disease deaths and hospital closures due to not being able to get an appointment the small increase can be explained.”

  8. There never was a new, novel Coronavirus in December 2019 when the Covid scam got started.
    Covid has never been isolated, clinically it doesn’t exist except as a line of computer code.

    The Covid cases are the invention of the fraudulent use of the PCR test.

    And what are the fake vaccines actually for, apart from making billions of pounds for the drug companies?

    New Zealand’s Dr Sam Bailey absolutely nails the covid hoax in this “must watch” video.

  9. This has become censored, suppressed. 404 on other web sites, so I have posted here in full.

    For Canadians: A letter to the unvaccinated

    OCLA researcher Dr. Denis Rancourt and several fellow Canadian academics penned an open letter to support those who have decided not to accept the COVID-19 vaccine.

    The group emphasizes the voluntary nature of this medical treatment as well as the need for informed consent and individual risk-benefit assessment. They reject the pressure exerted by public health officials, the news and social media, and fellow citizens.

    Control over our bodily integrity may well be the ultimate frontier of the fight to protect civil liberties. Read the letter here:

    Open Letter to the Unvaccinated

    You are not alone!
    As of 28 July 2021, 29% of Canadians have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and an additional 14% have received one shot.
    In the US and in the European Union, less than half the population is fully vaccinated, and even in Israel, the “world’s lab” according to Pfizer, one third of people remain completely unvaccinated.
    Politicians and the media have taken a uniform view, scapegoating the unvaccinated for the troubles that have ensued after eighteen months of fearmongering and lockdowns.
    It’s time to set the record straight.

    It is entirely reasonable and legitimate to say ‘no’ to insufficiently tested vaccines for which there is no reliable science.
    You have a right to assert guardianship of your body and to refuse medical treatments if you see fit.
    You are right to say ‘no’ to a violation of your dignity, your integrity and your bodily autonomy.
    It is your body, and you have the right to choose. You are right to fight for your children against their mass vaccination in school.

    You are right to question whether free and informed consent is at all possible under present circumstances.
    Long-term effects are unknown.
    Transgenerational effects are unknown.
    Vaccine-induced deregulation of natural immunity is unknown.
    Potential harm is unknown as the adverse event reporting is delayed, incomplete and inconsistent between jurisdictions.

    You are being targeted by mainstream media, government social engineering campaigns, unjust rules and policies, collaborating employers, and the social-media mob.
    You are being told that you are now the problem and that the world cannot get back to normal unless you get vaccinated.
    You are being viciously scapegoated by propaganda and pressured by others around you.
    Remember; there is nothing wrong with you.

    You are inaccurately accused of being a factory for new SARS-CoV-2 variants, when in fact, according to leading scientists, your natural immune system generates immunity to multiple components of the virus.
    This will promote your protection against a vast range of viral variants and abrogates further spread to anyone else.

    You are justified in demanding independent peer-reviewed studies, not funded by multinational pharmaceutical companies.
    All the peer-reviewed studies of short-term safety and short-term efficacy have been funded, organized, coordinated, and supported by these for-profit corporations; and none of the study data have been made public or available to researchers who don’t work for these companies.

    You are right to question the preliminary vaccine trial results.
    The claimed high values of relative efficacy rely on small numbers of tenuously determined “infections.”
    The studies were also not blind, where people giving the injections admittedly knew or could deduce whether they were injecting the experimental vaccine or the placebo.
    This is not acceptable scientific methodology for vaccine trials.

    You are correct in your calls for a diversity of scientific opinions.
    Like in nature, we need a polyculture of information and its interpretations.
    And we don’t have that right now.
    Choosing not to take the vaccine is holding space for reason, transparency and accountability to emerge.
    You are right to ask, ‘What comes next when we give away authority over our own bodies?’

    Do not be intimidated.
    You are showing resilience, integrity and grit.
    You are coming together in your communities, making plans to help one another and standing for scientific accountability and free speech, which are required for society to thrive.
    We are among many who stand with you.

  10. Sister Anne gets out of bed, dresses and heads to the canteen for breakfast.
    On the way, she meets Sister Mary and Sister Lucy.
    Mary says, “Ooh! Who got out of bed on the wrong side this morning, then?”
    Confused, Sister Anne continues and meets Sister Jane, Sister Pauline and Sister Gloria.
    Sister Gloria says, “Ooh! Who got out of bed on the wrong side this morning, then?”
    Irritated, Sister Anne walks on and meets Sister Helen who says, “Ooh! Who got out of bed on the wrong side this morning, then?”
    Now truly angry and confused, Sister Anne reaches the canteen to meet Mother Superior. Sister Anne, forgetting her manners says, “If anyone else asks me who got out of bed on the wrong side this morning, then? I’ll be furious.”
    Mother Superior says, “I was merely going to point out that you have the Bishop’s boots on.”

        I have never seen the mum and son show, ever.
        I never, ever want to.
        There was no warning of this.

        The thing was tvscum rambling rubbish – 1 minute 30 secs in I gave up.
        With a typical media dickhead of NZ who cant speak properly.

        ..and yes I know Wyndham because we lived for several years nearby in Seaward Downs and my Uncle had a farm out of Edendale and I got stitched up by a doctor in Wyndham after a nasty accident.

        But teeveescum rubbish was rambling nonsense
        Which is their stock in trade.
        just like their pretend coverage of the Olympics.
        Sadly they had the 2018 Comm Games as well and the rambling crap from the bobbly heads is a WOFT.

        You can post links to this nonsense WG and I will show my disapproval with a downtick.
        Which at least we can do here, unlike almost every other platform.
        So go ahead, downtick me for puking at unwanted teeveescum nonsense.

          • Waaay back in the 1960s
            When petrol was cheap and supermarkets were not really a thing.
            One uncle had a farm out of Edendale, another Myross Bush way.

            Young enough to not know how fricking cold it really was .
            This bleating about cold houses today.. blah blah.
            My youngest sister who was not even around then was asking last week how we got by.
            Woollen long johns, all day and all night.
            When it snowed I got in the grader with ‘Mr Ploughman’
            You could see from that height the snow all around the plains.
            No ‘elf and safety nonsense or hysterical mothers then.
            Just hop on board and enjoy the ride.

            That south wind could blow and nothing to stop it.
            The house in Myross had the nightstore heater.
            It was good to stay there.

            • My father grew up in mortain mains/ edendale, grandparents owned/ran the shop in edendale for many years but not sure if they were there in the 60s think they were probably over mokotua/kapuka way then. Still have family in edendale and wyndham, spent alot of time there when i was younger. Bit of a pity the factory has slowly devoured that side of town but its expanding out the otherway and quite a few are retiring there now, quiet life but close enough to invers for shopping and healthcare.

              Dad used to tell me stories of how him and his mates used to go down to the old cheese factory (seaward downs i think?) and watch them processing the milk etc, the workers would give them big scoops of curds to slurp down on the way home and cheese chunks on the odd occassion.

  12. Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, including employees, New York attorney general finds

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed almost a dozen women, including employees in his office, and violated state and federal laws, according to the findings of an investigation by the state attorney general’s office.

    The embattled governor denied the accusations and vowed that he will “not be distracted” from his job, but within hours of the report’s release, Democratic leadership, including longtime Cuomo ally President Joe Biden, demanded he step down.

    “I think he should resign,” Biden said.

    More than 1000 people were collectively seeking more than $200 million in a court battle against the James Hardie group of companies.

    RNZ understands the settlement comes after Harbour Litigation Funding, an international company that raises money for legal disputes and was backing the homeowners, pulled the plug on its legal support.

    “We cannot afford justice. We cannot afford, without the funder’s backing, to take this case through the High Court. The cost would be in the gazillions,” she said.

    The settlement has come at no cost to the plaintiffs but they will not be receiving the compensation they had hoped for either.

    Instead, James Hardie will be getting $1.25 million as a result of the settlement.

  14. ACT leader David Seymour not a fan of proposed ‘Aotearoa’ vs ‘New Zealand’ vote
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2021/08/act-leader-david-seymour-not-a-fan-of-proposed-aotearoa-vs-new-zealand-vote.html

    “Personally, I say New Zealand, I’m not interested in going out and policing what other people say, and I know a lot of young people out there who say look, you can call it Timbuktu if you like, so long as I can afford a house there.

    “I just think there are some bigger issues for most people.”

    • I want it to go to a referendum and I’d want ACT to support that referendum. For me, I want clarity on what the official name of our country is because I want this gradual, cultural shift in our country to stop. Aotearoa is simply a straw on an already very heavily laden camel. Bloody Three Waters, He Puapua, etc. are far, far bigger threats.

      if you do not think using the correct name for your country is not important

      I just watched the interview and read the article. The headline and the opening paragraph seem more like media fabrication, it doesn’t appear in the interview. Maybe there was off-camera conversation, maybe the media has decided to start going after the real leader of the opposition?

      In any event, they seem to ignore the whole 46 stop tour, feedback from people across NZ and missing that something can be more important than another thing without the other thing being unimportant 🙂

      For example, if I could have housing more affordable versus stopping people saying Aotearoa? I’d put increasing useable land supply as more important. I’d put stopping 3 Waters as more important. I’d put stopping He Puapua as more important. I’d put stopping the amended history curriculum as more important. Probably even defunding TVNZ, RNZ and all state media. But I’d still want the name to be clarified.

      • I agree with most of what you say Pascal but from a political point of view, this could be like a circuit breaker. It is something that everyone can easily relate to and informal polls, at least, suggest that most people (ie a vast majority) want our country to remain as New Zealand. For David to try to fob it off for whatever reason
        ( if it wasn’t a media fabrication) shows poor judgement in my view. He should be backing it completely even if he thinks the other other issues are more important.
        If it was a media fabrication or twisting of his words, then he should be coming out strongly, saying it was.

        • He said quite clearly from his perspective:

          * It is a freedom of speech issue and that people can call it what they want.
          * He calls the country New Zealand

          I infer from the rest of the statements that:

          * In their 46 stop tour of the country, this was not as important to the people they spoke to as, for example housing

          The bits that seem like media fabrication to me are the headline and the tagline; the clickbait bits designed to get you swearing 🙂

          * “ACT leader David Seymour not a fan of proposed ‘Aotearoa’ vs ‘New Zealand’ vote” – well, he never said he’s opposed to the vote. He just said that from the people they’ve spoken to there are higher priorities. He may very well be a fan.

          * “ACT leader David Seymour, riding high in the polls, is not a fan of National’s proposed vote on ‘Aotearoa’, and believes there are far more important issues to address. ” – again, creating the impression that it is predominantly his view rather than that of the people he spoke to, e.g. “I know a lot of young people out there who say look, you can call it Timbuktu if you like, so long as I can afford a house there” (young people’s view, not his)

          Either way – it should bloody well go to a referendum.

      ……”They weren’t even designed using real viral RNA from the (alleged) Sars-Cov-2 virus. They used “synthetic RNA” or “contrived sources”, because there were no isolated samples of Sars-Cov-2 available.”……

      How can any test for the “Sars-Cov-2 virus” ever be developed when it seems no such thing as the virus exists? Could it be that the sheep might finally wake up & smell the coffee?

  20. National MP Chris Bishop suspects clinicians were ‘pressured’ to U-turn on Fijian United Nations COVID-19 patient

    “One day we didn’t have capacity for one patient in ICU and then 24 to 36 hours later, apparently on their own volition, we do have capacity for one case from Fiji,” Bishop said during a Health Select Committee meeting on Wednesday.

    “Do you sort of see why a lot of people think that doesn’t really pass the sniff test? Something’s happened here, pressure’s come from someone or some entity and we want to know what happened.”

    Collins called on Clark to “come out and confirm whether or not she was involved in that, wading in,” adding: “We think that Helen Clark, if there is no political interference, should come out and say that.”

  21. Natural and Built Environments Act (RMA replacement)

    Submission on Natural & Built Environments Act (Exposure Draft)

    August 2021

    Overview

    1. I would have liked to help refine a Bill that would comprehensively puncture our

    catastrophic house price bubble. Alas there is almost nothing in this Bill likely to repay

    such effort. There is almost nothing in this Bill to be studied with legal precision. It is a

    set of slogans drafted to look like statute. But it foreshadows an extended grant of

    decree powers over land use, to the Minister and some regional panels, yet to be

    appointed.

      • From what I have read and watched, I do beleive Covid exists. However, I also beleive that many have been diagnosed incorrecttly. ( The massive drop in Flu suggests this as well). My beef is the speed at which the “vaccine” has been developed and the propaganda to try and push this on the masses. Further the dismissal of Invermectin etc, is quite frankly genocidal. Lastly why has discussion been stifled, banned, discouraged.? After thalidomide, one would expect any vaccine development to be as transparent as possible. This is not happening, and any politician or official not recognising this deserves to be dumped as soos as possible. But, on your last point, you are absolutely correct. We’ve been lied to……

        • …..” I do beleive Covid exists”…..

          So do I. It’s just that I don’t think that “Covid 19” is any more than a glorified head cold or another instance of a bad seasonal flu. Every year up until 2019 a new version of the flu killed off a percentage of oldies & despite lockdowns, masks & the wrecking of the Western way of life the death toll isn’t much different to any other year.

          What is different is that the current virus is being used to justify a “reset” where the rich will get richer & the plebs will lose any rights they may of had.

          Everything else has a dna code or sequence yet this, the “worst” threat we have ever faced doesn’t. Before we pick up ropes & pitchforks & hang our leaders from lampposts let them show us that provable dna evidence exists.

          • I’m still trying to work this out and my best petri dish for this whole global experiment remains Sweden. They have no lockdowns so suicide, delayed medical treatments, etc. less of a factor. They remained open, so people could continue to live their life as they chose. They basically did the opposite to the rest of the world.

            And they have a 7.7% increased excess mortality compared to the average of the previous 4 years. That doesn’t gut-feel like just a “bad seasonal flu”, but unfortunately the articles don’t list detailed numbers – just percentages.

            Statista has some figures, e.g.
            2014 – 88,976
            2015 – 90,907 (2.1%)
            2016 – 90,982 (0.08%)
            2017 – 91,972 (1.08%)
            2018 – 92,185 (0.23%)
            2019 – 88,766 (-3.75%)
            2020 – 97,941 (10.3%)
            2021 – 38,354 (up to 28 May)

            That shows a larger deviation than normal in 2020. If you pro-rata 2021 you’re back to the 92,000 figure they seem to hover around.

            Something definitely happened there in 2020.

            • Put it another way Pascal. Your figures show deaths from the seasonal flu & there is a blip for 2020.

              The experts have announced “Covid 19” as if it were a whole new bug that never existed before. As such we should see deaths, as expected, from the normal flu mutation plus deaths from the so called Covid. (Which is what most cold & flu viruses are anyway)

              So those figures should show normal deaths (say 95K) PLUS deaths from the dreaded Covid 19 & its variants.

              10% increase over the previous year hardly justifies the draconian measures we’ve suffered.

              5

              0

              • Agreed. A 10% increase in deaths is a big number though, mate. But what the 2021 figure to date suggests is that all measures to date were likely bullshit. Sweden had none of those draconian measures (Or very minimal iirc) and seem to have returned to normal.

                It will be interesting to see the impact of their vaccination rate over the next few years.

            • I think in part, though Sweden had a hands off attitude, it went a bit far.
              I commented on that last year, as a young American Doctor was very alarmed at the Swedish practices for the elderly.
              From what I recall.
              For example for the elderly in rest homes, no oxygen assistance was to be allowed. Nor were they to go to hospitals.

              Strangely the staff in rest homes could seem to freely administer morphine, which
              – Morphine LA tablets are contraindicated in patients
               with respiratory depression especially in the presence of cyanosis and excessive bronchial
              secretion
               with obstructive airways disease
               with heart failure secondary to chronic lung disease

              Sweden has always been a bit strange as even before, it allows many refugees in, even accommodating them into wings of rest homes, so maybe well pleased to have a few more empty rest homes. Like swap the old for the young.
              Then the death rate in numbers will go down as the % of young will be higher.

              I have not fully looked or know the figures of the make up of the Swedish demographics and what effect there is.

              Unfortunately theres not really any other country in the world with reliable stats to compare sweden with so we cant compare apples with apples its all just speculation on what caused the spike. Could be covid could be some other reason theres no way to prove or disprove.

              • Yup, I said it earlier as well – you look to their European counterparts and 20-odd had worse mortality rates (I think the worst is up to 36% vs their 7%) and the best had a 0% increase (but with lockdowns, etc.) Only 8 performed better for this one single year.

                It’s certainly stretching credulity to say there isn’t something going on. I can’t imagine that all those countries would randomly, by chance have large increases all in the same year. Yes, there’s been human intervention e.g. lockdowns. But can you see suicide rates / missed medical treatment / etc. resulting from those rules in just one year in a Western democracy result in that 36% figure? It feels a bit too much to me – it doesn’t pass a sniff test.

                But agreed, I don’t think there is a single comparison possible – there’s just too many variables to hit this without, as a data geek and professional, some pretty intelligent modelling that’s beyond the likes of all but 1 person I know.

                Interestingly looking at the NZ numbers, our big swings happened in 2008 (2.34%), 2011 (5.78%), 2014 (5.05%), 2017 (6.93%), 2020 (-4.81%)… like almost every three years for the last decade. It stands out in a heatmap 🙂

      • If you have been following some back ground then these Doctors are among the most concerned and doubts about the vaccines.
        This short section going by the time points I have put, is informative.

        At 23 minutes this question is asked. “Has the Covid virus been isolated”?

        Dr. Richard M. Fleming gives a quick but detailed explanation.
        “It is a real virus, that was really genetically engineered, and modified, …. ….. and that is how we know the variants exist, because their nucleotide bases do not match the initial Sars Covid 2 Wuhan V1
        He concludes at 25 mins 30 secs.

        Then Doctor Robert Malone.
        “completely concurs with Dr, Fleming …… the data base is enormous now. ….. sequenced, characterized, repeatedly
        Concludes at 26 mins 30 secs.

        Dr, Li Men Yan
        “in my lab we are the first out of Mainland China to isolate and spot the virus in the petrie and I also handled by myself to do the animal model to find the transmissional model using the Golden Hamster.
        So this virus is really based and based on all the coronavirus experience in my lab. that ****, so this is very difficult to isolate successfully. … …..
        You can always detach the sequence results, from the sample in the throat, or in the nose, but it is very difficult to concentrate from those samples.
        The best way is if you have to do the **** generated from this kind of spit sample and using very good techniques. ….. ….. …… [interesting short back story here] …..
        So it exists but very difficult to isolate.” ….
        Concludes at 28 mins 36 secs.

        Some questions arise about computerization, sequencing, but Dr, Fleming comes back that he has put out 30,000 samples.
        At 32 minutes, “The entire genetic sequence of the entire virus is laid out. It is not a computer fill in model”.
        Then talks a little about the PCR testing.
        Bottom line … 20 cycles should be the end. ….
        Concludes that part at 33 mins.

        I had posted this the other day with a rough synopsis,
        https://ysb.co.nz/covid-vaccines-dont-work/#comment-159925

        Even these good Doctors in that short section raise the issue of just what was the CDC NIH, Fauci connections Dsank etc, with skullduggery with the CCP and the military arm of the PLA.

        Yet there are more people shot & killed in Chicago, or New York, than what is supposedly dying by Covid.
        Car accidents, cancer, heart attacks are far bigger killers, but there seems to be a question arising about the combo of vaccine, and some variant.
        Yet the push is as nasska above mentions, the saviour complex, whilst using fear, so hiding the power & control that is being put in place.
        Stalin, then Hitler figured and others figured how to use that ‘saviour’ concept with fear..
        After all it was the many good people that supported those despots, so that they gained ultimate power & control

  24. So we have a 27yr old in Sydney who has supposedly died from Covid. 13 days in isolation then it suddenly gets worse and he dies. Sounds dodgy to me, but let’s assume that he did in fact die of covid. What are the lessons to be taken.
    Well according to the media, the NSW health authorities the virus is deadly and does affect young people so, get vaxed asap. Never mind the young people like the 35 yr dentist from Matakana that died shortly after the vax or the young men suffering from myocarditis, hush those up and make sure they never see the front page.
    To me the lesson they should be taking is, don’t send anyone home to isolate without providing treatment. Obviously it is not able to be proven now but it is highly probable that the Ivermectin protocol given on diagnosis would have saved his life.
    The withholding of treatment which clearly works is criminal.
