Water in many parts of our city rose within minutes according to residents whose houses were flooded. This is the definition of a flash flood regardless of how long it has been raining

as buyer i want to know what i am going to get for my money.

Its a good thing you’re not in M&A. It’s called due diligence, Einstein. And it’s done BEFORE a deal is reached.

Exactly! Ask for all crucial info to determine value. I guess it's either very careless negotiation or a clumsy way to drive down the share price

Do readers just skip over this?

“the center of the outbreak is 90% vaccinated.”


No. Having been far lower the vaccine rate is now 90% more than 3 months after the outbreak. Hence NZs R value now dropping below 1 despite loosening restrictions

I spoke with a friend in NZ today. Hes dispairing, says the public is swept up in the “vaxathon” like its a religeous festival. He thinks NZ has one insane.

Yes clearly 90+% of NZ insane not the remainder

To anyone dismissing this as nothing how would you feel if someone put a compromised photo of your daughter online for other people to get off on? Who cares if it's an arrestable offence or copyright infringement? It's just morally corrupt

Everybody outside of NZ thinks this woman is great.

The majority of New Zealanders do too

She has single handedly destroyed NZ's economy

Not sure where you got this from. NZs economy is faring better than most globally. Our credit rating just increased and the associated report made a direct correlation to the measures implemented by her government

Posted in: New Zealand to lift coronavirus curbs in most of country on Sept 21 See in context

Restrictions outside Auckland weren't necessary in the first place. The South Island for example has been COVID free for months

Aucklanders have been travelling to the South Island for the benefit of tourism businesses so limited restrictions were necessary

The approach as worked because NZ was so quick to react in the first round with strong measures, and having high level of compliance among the population. NZ was quite rightly proud of their achievement of eliminating this the first time.

The NZ Director General of Health has always said 'it's not a case of if but when' so certainly not indicative of your ability to predict a crisis or a failure of the govt approach
