Elections are coming
Any doubts that the government has a political agenda in their approach to the present Covid19 emergency have certainly been removed by recent events.
The ‘honeyed tones’ of Jacinda Ardern using the term ‘We’ to extoll the virtues of the population in reducing the threat of the pandemic, is spurious at the least. We, the compliant populous in our ‘Bubbles,’ have had nothing to do with the restrictions leading to the apparent reduction of the threat of Covid19.
In the recent relaxation of the rules applying to Level 2 the preferment of sporting activities over religious services and funeral attendances is as senseless as it is insensitive.
In the light of recent events, one may reasonably ask; Are the limits of ten persons going to apply also to iwi and tangis?
