    rdytdy got a reaction from tripple alliance in Jacinda Ardern   
    So the plan is "throw the country into turmoil every time we get a couple of Covid-19 cases."
    A complete joke.
    Four cases in Auckland and she shuts the whole country down .
    What information have they been hiding?  Since last week going on about wearing masks, the Covid adverts starting up again. Bloomfield shown getting tested  for Covid this morning. 
    Complete incompetence and I bet the team of 5 million will be far from impressed.

    rdytdy got a reaction from Gruff in Jacinda Ardern   
    According to a Swedish doctor Sebastian Rushworth, COVID kills fewer people than seasonal flu. He says COVID has disappeared from the emergency room of the large hospital in Stockholm after four months burning through the Swedish population. Sweden took a non-aggressive approach to the pandemic.
    With life continuing pretty much as normal, the Swedish economy is understandably in very good shape. Businesses didn’t lay off employees, education was uninterrupted and the Swedish government is not propping up the unemployed.
      The Swedes are still testing but the tests return negative and oddly, antibody tests return negative too, but Rushworth has a theory about that.
    Of course Swedes died.
    Rushworth says trying to avoid the virus merely delays its inevitable spread.
    The direction we are heading puts us in and out of lockdown for years to come but Ardern’s government will be loath to admit failure when their election campaign rests on the premise that they successfully handled the pandemic.

    Myself included....lost interest because it's just too hard ! 😡  More barriers, blockades and obstacles to make racing inaccessible to the masses seems the mentality of the suits running ruining NZ Racing.
    All in the name of cost cutting to prevent insolvency!
    Shame they didn't use the same philosophy before spending $50,000,000 and the ongoing $17,000,000 per year maintenance costs on the dog TAB web-site betting platform. 🤬

    First , comrade cindy had to be forced to secure the boarders properly (petition) second we changed policy half way through , we went from controlling the virus to eradication , nice for publicity but the jury is out for the well being of the country . The policy of eradication is unreal for many reasons that's why it wasn't the first choice of cindy , the world was never going to eradicate this virus they were aiming to control/live with it .  Eradication has isolated NZ from the world , a sort of Cuba , how long can that last .
    Now look at what's really happening , we borrowed 50 BILLION  , the bulk has gone on propping up wages and massive GIVEAWAYS , racing $70 million , sport $260 million the arts $175 million etc etc all BORROWED money , the wage giveaway is ending for 1.2 MILLION NZers in September so what next , the outlook for many  looks grim , reality is just around the corner .
    I see there is an emergency meeting  in Auckland , they are in panic mode and fearful of huge business collapses , the purpose of the meeting is to try to work out how to extract ourselves from the corner we have painted ourselves into ,  guest speaker  Sir John Key.
    As you can see we are living on borrowed money and the day of reckoning is getting closer , this virus will be around for many years to come .

    It's overdue that Siouxsie Wiles is  hauled over the coals for referring to herself & been called a Doctor.
     She has a Doctorate which is massively different to being a qualified medical specialist /General Practitioner who face to face examines & gets to know their patients circumstances & health issues as required under a Hippocratic Oath.
     
    Wiles is a Mircobiologist & should not be permitted to tell people to go get tested for Coronavirus just bc she thinks everyone should get tested.
     
    The whole situation has been blown massively out of proportion thanks to access to Metadata by university academics.
     
    Btw, there's a recent decision from the European Courts relating to the collection & sharing of data btwn the EU & UK...
     
    ohhh sheesh, looks like NZ are once again way behind there legal obligations to the people of New Zealand & their rights to privacy.

Coppins, Peter Early, trainers insights to the day’s and weekends racing, CD track spies reports ,Kneebones northern tips.Des Coppins Sunday show and Monday Reviews all gone . Feels like they’ve removed part of the sole of this great sport .As a result of the crude changes I don’t bet during the week now and don’t listen to anything racing apart from Saturday’s  .Not the only one I bet .

    @TurnyTom That's because those who have run the Racing industry downhill appear on the surface to have Post Office/ Banking/ Finance backgrounds - and just like banks they are closing branches down here, there and everywhere only leaving a hole in the wall to use and customers having to venture further afield, or to use the increasingly unsafe internet for transactions -  privacy breaches, hacking fraud, etc tends to increase with online - there's bound to be an avenue of recourse somewhere along the food chain.
    No one is unaccountable under law anywhere.
