Hundreds of thousands of Kiwis who do not yet have both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine face a tightening of their freedoms on December 3, when the Government moves the entire country into the new “traffic-light” system.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the date on Monday, saying Covid-19 was not going to be eradicated from New Zealand.
“The hard truth is that Delta is here and not going away,” Ardern said.
While Aucklanders will finally see an end to New Zealand’s longest lockdown, those in other parts of the country could face far more restrictions if they have not been fully-vaccinated.

The Labour party and their friends are now being hammered because they are not doing what the general public would like them to to do. Jacinda is now facing a problem that has never been faced before - a war on our own territory - and the poor lady just has no records to fall back on. Back in the 1940's when the UK was under threat, Parliament was dissolved and a co-alition was set in place. This gave us some very severe measures - rationing of many food items for instance - and people were requested, nay - forced to grow their own vegetables, have chooks in their backyards, trading amongst neighbours, local councils let out allotments for anyone to grow more vegetables. You just don't know how bad it could get - it least we are not putting up with air raids and bombing.
Give Jacinda a break, she's doing the best that she can, she doesn't need all the hindrance she's getting from the anti-vaxxers and the nay-sayers.
I love Rum N Raisin chocolate, but only the Cadbury one, called Old Gold dark chocolate, Old Jamaica Rum N Raisin. It is available in New Zealand - a local supermarket stocks it occasionally and I grab a pile whenever they are available (maybe come from Australia now).
