I completely agree with Charlie. But we are not yet past "this incident" - we might yet even have a couple more mutations of Covid 19. An ordinary corona virus takes 3 to 4 years to fizzle out - and there is nothing unusual about this particular virus. . Then, and only then, are we able to learn from how we reacted to the epidemic - because only then can we observe relevant statistics about the consequences from various governments' hugely varying policies on this virus event. These consequences are just now becoming obvious : 1. The enormous economic damage from…

Sloppy MSM. Bad unprofessional scribe.

Maoris leading NZ? 17% of the population? No! Herewith a load of crud from a dangerous stirrer.


“Kīngi Tuheitia challenges political leaders to be "builders not wreckers" as he calls for Māori MPs to be the change Aotearoa needs”.

www.stuff.co.nz/pou-t...iPhone


The Māori king says it’s time for Māori to lead the change needed for Aotearoa’s future prosperity.

In his annual koroneihana address at Turangawawae Marae, Kiingi Tuheitia called on the country to allow iwi Māori to take charge.

He says working with government is important, but Māori plan to just do it, and if government comes along, ka pai.

While Māori suffered inequities in health, living costs, and the impacts of climate change, they also had the answers and solutions…

This election will not be the turning point in New Zealands history, rather the following election will be. At that stage, a few years down the track, nothing will have changed whether the party elected is Blue or Red.


Only about 20% of the population can see we are heading in the wrong direction. This 20% is currently not united. There are a few parties who are starting to espouse policies which will do away with racism and favouritism. These are the only parties we should consider. The main parties, in their desire to get elected, are promising the world. What they are nor promising is equality.


We need to vote for any party that will get rid of race-based…

The COVID scare has passed as it was always going to. It ended like all precious pandemics because enough people were exposed and developed immunity.

It's time we learned what we can from this incident and moved on.

People in NZ seem to have trouble moving forward because they are too obsessed with the past.

We should have and be united by a common and inspirational vision for a better future instead of being divided and arguing about the past.

We lack real leaders with a vision of a better future for our people and that is why this country is failing.


We elect people who only desire political prestige, authority and power over us and treat us like their…

You write above : "It's time we learned what we can from this incident and moved on".


This is happening as we speak, Charlie. Give us time. An ordinary corona virus takes 3 to 4 years to fizzle out - and there is nothing unusual about this particular virus. . Then, and only then, are we able to learn from how we reacted to the epidemic - because only then can we observe relevant statistics about the consequences from various governments' hugely varying policies on this virus event.


These consequences are just now becoming obvious : 1. The enormous economic damage from stopping productivity for many weeks. 2. : The quite unexpected harm to children from vulnerable homes to b…
