    Gary - why are they worrying about letting Aussies into the country and chinese - /goff wans all their students - but they apparently refuse to open courses both race & workout.     Why do they deserve my support when they not only bar us from our own clubs but let us get pissed in a boozer whenever we want to.     Gary, in my opinion they rather see Lotto do well and no doubt they trying to entice us there.      Gary, do you think we should be barred from our own clubs when if we a member of an RSA it's fine.     Why should I throw my pension away (I'm a shit gambler) when I can't even get to watch it disappear?      Am I angry with HRNZ and RITA for the effort they are putting in to get us all back on course?    Damn right I am.    And yes, I have been off my arse on the subject not just bitching in social media under a n-d-p.      But miracles will happen, everything will change on 1st June when guess what - Winston's mates horses go back to racing.

    How do the on course patrons (if there will be any left) get paid out?      The little old lady $1 place - oh sorry they don't want their loyal customers from the last 50 or more years any more.

    During the “blue magic” enquiry a good man lost his life
    One of the individuals involved here said, in his speech, at the HRNZ awards, that he was contemplating or had contemplated suicide because of this inquiry 
    I guess that’s the equation the Police and RIU have to weigh up
    How much evidence should they fabricate ?
    How many new fictitious charges should they lay ?
    How much financial pressure should they apply ?
    How many deaths or destroyed careers, decimated families, do they want ? What’s their “bag limit” ? 

    I’m guessing they don’t think like me, but if they did they’d be having sleepless nights right now because based on the evidence I’ve seen they’re destroying lives and careers for no good reason

    So you think owners can afford these rises?    And then told by Taxcinda they cannot watch their horses race.      And then Winston thinks he has fixed the problem.      There is more sense in a volume of Mother Goose

    Only just under a week to first harness meeting (at Addington).    They need patrons on course with smiley ladies behind the betting counters.      Not a word about this from the pooh bahs.    Tomorrow "she" will announce loosening on gathering numbers (cafes, bars, church services, funerals etc.) but not a word on racing meetings or trials you can guarantee.      Most of those groups who  will get relief are those who have been making a "noise" over the last 1 or 2 weeks.      Silence from racing.     People at the races keeping  whatever separations are required are no different from people 1 metre apart in cafe & bars.       But it is typical of an industry who have big fat asses and are very good at sitting on them.
