No Minister

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t

In a fine example of how the government of your political opponents can do nothing right, we have conservative commentary in NZ roughly split into two camps: those who think the government is crap because it should have locked the country down a month ago to stop all those Johnny Foreigners coming here with their filthy germs, and those who think the government is crap for locking down the country at all, since it will wreck our economy for the sake of a small group of useless eaters. It’s difficult to decide which of those is the more obnoxious position, but I believe it’s the second one. The first one is pretty stupid, in that it carries the implied argument that we could prevent a virus from entering the country, but the second one is definitely worse in that it writes off a large number of people as not worth saving. Either way, I’m glad our government doesn’t consist of such people, which it easily could have done if National had won the last election.
