Stop the damaging lockdowns, Jacinda. Bill Muehlenberg is right…
The evidence worldwide is that lockdowns have caused more damage to the countries that implemented them than was ever originally envisaged. The number of deaths from serious medical conditions that were brushed aside as lockdowns were prioritised will probably have cost us more deaths than those from Covid-19 – now recognised to be on a par with other formerly damaging epidemics, such as the Hong-Kong or Spanish flu.
Jacinda Ardern’s edicts have been over-reliant upon media-feted medical “experts” with a very narrow perspective on the costs of these highly damaging shutdowns of the country to people’s lives, businesses, health, and even hopes and dreams. The consequences are with us in the numbers of suicides – and in those now left facing financial despair as Labour’s controversial, anti-business coalition plunges us into an abyss of financial debt -and promises more and more of the same, in a vote-buying pre-election spree.
Give this government’s pre-coronavirus attack on our productive industries such as oil and gas exploration, the evidence is that we are now being further damaged by a government with an overwhelming socialist agenda. And the extraordinary, virtually totalitarian controls that have been placed upon our democracy and upon individuals’ actions are highly ominous.
What has been made very obvious with Ardern’s government, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, is not only the ongoing blunders that have been made along the way – and the constant excuses we have been subjected to with regard to the lack of much-needed testing for border controls, in our state of total unpreparedness – is the lack of competence the country should have been able to rely upon.
This, is well as the pattern of attack by highly dangerous viruses over recent years should have given due warning that it was time for contingency preparations to have been made and ready. With one or two honourable exceptions, the medical “experts” seem to have also missed the boat in this area.
Add these factors to the centre-staging Jacinda Ardern’s overwhelming conviction of rightness – and it’s time for New Zealanders to say, as so many already are – that they have had enough..
