Example being the shoe-horning of some pubs in to resataurants but leaving others closed. This has just had the effect of making people confused even though it is well m...

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Difficult to know what to do. As long as the virus is rampant around the world, even a country as isolated as NZ wont be able to keep it at bay despite the best efforts. These temporary lockdowns will slow down spread though so probbly a good idea in the long run. I see Vlad has a vaccine. I wouldnt...

Not sure who it is but just listening to the radio and the lady is making the point that public servants aren't paid for the 2 week quarantine either. Fair point.

I dont agree with govt on this one. They should be entitled to spend their benefits however they want. The issue is with people milking a benefits system designed for those that need really need it, but that's a different argument.

They're in a trick position I suppose.

They'll lose their left transfers if they do, their centre transfers if they dont. Both results will hurt them in the next election so might as well do the best they can now.
