Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.

An extra-ordinary election leaflet.

Tel from Central Whangarei

I was handed an election leaflet to-day that claimed it was from "Advance NZ". The leaflet said it was authorised by J Ross, xxx Botany Road, Botany. (I have redacted the house number.)

The leaflet said it was authorised by J Ross, xxx Botany Road, Botany. (I have redacted the house number.) This leaflet made some extra-ordinary claims. I have made this a public post in case it was an attempt to traduce "Advance NZ". If the document is not genuine then Advance NZ can say so and I will take it to the Police.


The leaflet was stuck on car windscreens in our local Mitre 10 car park with neither permission nor knowledge by Mitre 10.


The leaflet claims that COVID-19 is no more dangerous than Seasonal Flu and decries Lockdowns and Mask Wearing. It says that WHO states that lockdowns do not work. The party worker who gave me a leaflet said that World-wide there were very few deaths from COVID-19. Instead what has happened is that Governments have simply re-labelled many deaths for political reasons.


Thank goodness these people have no part in Government.
