damned if they do and damned if they don't.

Paul from Pukete

I have sat back and watched everyone rant about yesterday's NZ Government announcement regarding mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations for all adults working in the education section, early childhood education sector and healthcare and can't believe the language some are using and the abuse being levelled.
The Government has not taken your rights away to decide if you are vaccinated or not. You still have that CHOICE. What they have done is say if you work in these JOBS (education, early childhood centres, the health sector) you need to be vaccinated as you are working with a group of people in NZ who due to their age are not able to have the vaccination or are vulnerable due to ill health or old age.
They are trying to protect our children and elderly and the vulnerable.

If you don't want to have the vaccinations great that is your CHOICE. You aren't going to jail for it. You have the freedom to make that CHOICE What is affected is your ability to work in your CHOOSEN job. So CHOOSE not to have a vaccination and look for a job in another industry. It is your CHOICE.

We teach our children that CHOICES and ACTIONS have consequences but as soon as something like this happens I have been shocked at the number of adults throwing temper tantrums about “it’s not fair”.

I am not sure why everyone feels the need to abuse the government on Facebook when all they are trying to do is protect the majority of NZ.

Would you rather they sat back open the borders completely, remove all restrictions and watch NZers get sick and you not be able to access medical services for any illness apart from Covid because the hospitals and doctors are overrun.

The Government is damned if they do and damned if they don't.

The opposition are in favour of opening the country up and removing all restrictions. I respect your choice not to get the vaccine, I don't respect your choice to be on Facebook and throw abuse at a group of people trying to do their best in a situation we have not had to face previously.

Equity look no further

Paul from Pukete

Equity look no further




There is much said about our indigenous people wanting "equity" to achieve equity requires a fully encompassing belief , especially within your own culture .unfortunately to their detriment this is not expressed by the actions of Maori leadership

These views where expressed in a recent article called the "The Fatal Flaw" by Muriel Newman



She states that

" under Labour's He Puapua “partnership” agenda, where Maori are elevated into a ruling class, with everyone else relegated to second-class citizenship status."

Under co-governance partnerships, tribal representatives gain a controlling interest in decision-making - and the right of veto. Any pretense of democratic rule in the public good, is an illusion.





He Puapua “partnership” is in essence "tribal co-governance" It’s an arrangement that replaces democratic accountability with authoritarian rule by a tribal elite that is focused on their own best interest, and cares little for the public good.

This encapsulates the ire of a great many New Zealanders especially Pakeha



Mureil further states

"Co-governance is the antithesis of democracy. While democracy operates in the public good, giving everyone the opportunity to get involved and hold elected representatives to account, tribal rule prioritizes greed and self-interest."

In essence, co-governance delivers the totalitarian control of public good resources to a race-based elite that now leads some of the country’s richest private corporations. As such, co-governance results in the effective privatization of public resources to a Maori tribal aristocracy."

And the stakes are huge – already, thanks to taxpayers, post-settlement Treaty assets held by iwi corporations are worth almost $10 billion





But while tribal rulers and their associates live privileged lives, as a result of the elitist class structure of tribalism, other tribal members continue to live lives of hardship and deprivation.'



" other tribal members continue to live lives of hardship and deprivation.'" is the unfortunate truth that stick in the throat of all New Zealand"



Where is the equity when all the assets are in the " the hands of a powerful and self-interested tribal cabal, who cares nothing for the rights or concerns of other New Zealanders?"

The "selfishness' "greed and self-interest" of the "elite" are the root cause of the Maori malaise that see them disproportionally represented in all the wrong statistics we need to look no further
