This needs distributing

The Good, the bad and the ugly by Cam Slater

Over the years I have met, had lunch, dinner, drinks or meetings with a vast number of politicians. Some were great, most were average, but none, with one exception, were evil. I grew up in a political family. We had cabinet ministers and prime ministers over for dinner. My mother never really liked most of them, and I got my healthy distrust of politicians from her. I remember one night her telling Aussie Malcolm chapter and verse why he was going to be unemployed after the next election…and she was right, he was. I remember the night Jim Bolger was sitting in front of Mum’s grand piano, sipping a…

Re barriergolds comment'

I wonder should we pay any attention yet to what either side is claiming. For God's sake it was only discovered less than a month ago and already there are experts from each end of the plank making claims.

I know this is unrelated to the current thread but I have to say in the arrogance of their ignorance and their blind stupidity the Govt has finally invited Omicron into NZ.

Time to let this thing run its course, omicron might be just what we need, with 32 mutations to the spike protein, it’s potentially canceling itself out, surprising they are saying the vaccine will fortify against it. More likely a BS sales Pitch and propaganda to keep the fear going. Interestingly enough, it seems to be causing less of a concern in Africa with its very low vaccination rates as opposed to the UK and high vaccine rates. There goes that old natural immunity thing again. NZ C19 Stats as of last month

35k plus reported adverse events

684 ACC claims

214 vac deaths

44 covid deaths, .00088% of population, which is open to speculation re UN/WHO statute

Global death toll…
