It’s no surprise to see former Prime Minister John Key advocating financial incentives for Māori and Pasifika to get vaccinated in the next six weeks.
Our collective sacrifice for Covid is worth more than John Key.

JOHN: Dear God, the Maoris and the Pacificas love the scratchies right, so they’ll clamber for my gift vouchers & KFC for the jab eh? I’m such a great chap, hmmmmmm someone over there has a ponytail. JUDITH: Dear God, bring my enemies a plague.

IT’S ONE OF THOSE throwaway lines which, precisely because so little conscious thought was given to it, tells us so much. The author, Andrea Vance, is an experienced political journalist working for Stuff. The subject of Vance’s throwaway line, Sean Plunket, is an equally experienced journalist. It was in her recent story about Plunket’s soon-to-be-launched online media product “The Platform”, that Vance wrote: “Plunket’s dalliances with controversy make it easy to paint him as a two-dimensional character: a right-wing, shock-jock with outdated views on privilege and race.”

The posturing by the Opposition that Jacinda should vow to never again go back into Level 4 Lockdown is exactly that, just posturing.
Moving to level 3 is a huge political gamble for Jacinda but one she feels she can make based on her trust of the track trace infrastructure.
THE UPPER-CLASS ABSCONDERS from Auckland’s Level 4 Lockdown have done the rest of New Zealand a favour. They have exposed, in the most dramatic terms, the true extent of the social gulf separating the wealthiest New Zealanders from the poorest.

I will defend your right not to get the vaccine while protecting my right to laugh at you when you die.
Thanks to social media, white people in NZ now know how much Maori & Pacifica hate them in the same way men now know post MeToo that women hate them. This means the majority who are now well aware of the minority’s contempt for them will be asked to continue lockdowns because the minority haven’t vaccinated.
After 5 years, the NZ Police have apologised and settled my complaint against their breach of my privacy and civil rights during their deeply flawed case against Nicky Hager. The formal apology is as follows.
