Our patronising Prime Minister has provided potty privileges.

Jacinda Ardern’s comment that allowing people to use the toilet at a friend’s house is a “luxury” sums up everything that’s wrong with her covid response.

This morning, ACT said the Government needed to provide clarity on the traffic light system. We didn’t get it.

Why are some areas that have no or very low rates of covid in Red? Is it to force up vaccination rates? Equally, why, when Auckland has high vaccination rates, is it in Red? Why isn’t the South Island in Green? If the Government is concerned about areas with low vaccination rates, but they have no covid, why not put them in Orange until Auckland opens up?

None of it makes any sense. As usual the Government is just making it up as it goes along. What New Zealanders need are clear rules of the game.
