No Minister

Currently at our summer escape at Rakaia Gorge, surviving interwebbywise on one bar of Vodafone and very sporadic connectivity. Went down to the double bridges for a gander at the river in seriously high flows that peaked overnight at well over 2000 cumecs (for the mere mortals that is two million liters a second). making any talk of a water shortage kind of esoteric!

While there, encountered a classic case of don’t make assumptions, in that a male person sporting a mass of unkempt facial hair and clothing decidedly not old Hereford Street might hold as a belief system? Whatever, I continued my casual research previously mentioned and began a conversation expecting a strong possibility he might be a “jacindaphile”. Struggling to remain on a professional basis he totally gobsmacked Moi with an anti Ardernearly rant that had the air turning blue with his choice of language over lockdowns, vaccinology excesses, business destruction, race relations turmoil, and economic stupidity! He concluded his loquacious assault with a tentative apology for his passionate outburst with a closing comment along the lines “That bitch has killed more people and destroyed more social fabric of our once great Nation than Tarrant ever achieved in his trip to infamy”!

I quickly assured him his language and passionate beliefs largely aligned with my own and we parted with a handshake and agreed we both felt better about the Nation and its future, with at a minimum there were still two people who were capable of independent thought alive in New Zealand on this day.

  1. Yes, indeed. Plenty more like him are around. But, are there enough?

  2. Roy Morgan are hopeless pollsters, left as. Rigged questions. Give it all time and tide. Much damage being done, a lot which the govt cannot hide, nor hide from. Covid won them the last one, it will lose them the next. Or rather, Ardern’s huge controlling over reach over the vaccines will, the division she is pushing, and the utterly ineffective and confusing traffic light system.
