Yeah. All of us would like to be able to get home now. What’s your point here?shanky wrote:Oh hi Muttonbirdguy smiley wrote:Feasibility is a challenging term right now. From the outside it seems that remaining closed off is not only doable economically (the economy is taking a massive hit of course, but not nosediving into disaster) but popular with casual polls revealing strong support and official polls showing incredible levels of support for the Labour Party who could govern alone on current polling, if not a first under MMP then certainly rare.EverReady wrote:How long does she think she can keep this up?

‘She’ can certainly stay the course until after the election in September. After that it’s a fair bet to suggest they will continue in govt and the policy of health before all else will continue.
Feasibility should include, after all, the health of the electorate. Business minds seem to struggle with that concept at times.
From my perspective, the Aus situation is a shitshow. I’m in South Australia... no community transmission for two months. Limited interstate travel has been underway for some time but the resurgence in Vic and NSW suggests none of us are out of the woods yet and the NZ govt’s position is understandable and reasonable. The Aus govt have decided to do nothing and delegate management of the country to a bunch of miners. If I was Ardern I’d stay right away as well.
There's what, a million Kiwis stuck in this-here shitshow? Sooner or later, they're going to want to see their families.
Taking exception to my description of the current situation? Sorry if I offend your sensibilities there but I don’t think it’s inaccurate.
