  1. … and a couple of weeks ago a Woke Idiot journalist was writing in a National newspaper that it was a case of white privilege that the country was vaccinating people when they didn’t have COVID and that the vaccines should be sent to the poor hard done by 3rd world.

      So far 69% of the infected cases are Pacific Islanders (cf 7% of the population). 44 of the 277 cases are vaccinated.
      Maori and Pacific Islanders have had priority access to vaccines for months, they even held special clinics for them in South Auckland. However, they tend to have very large families and live in overcrowded conditions (the reason why so many children have covid in this outbreak) and 64% of them are obese (so vaccinations may not work anyway).
      We are just praying that they have no religious objection to staying the f**k home.

    • It must be tough for you only being allowed to register a single $exual partner for visitation rights. My thoughts are with you.
