You may not have noticed this week that our deputy PM Grant Robertson (he who refuses to answer emails about the pandemic because it is nothing to do with him) announced that as things stand there could not be a fourth booster shot. The reason is more revealing – New Zealand has run out of money.
Covid sure has eaten up the cash. Grant has spent $64 billion on the pandemic so far (before it has even arrived here) and there is nothing left. Our annual health budget is a paltry $20 billion; the $64 billion has been on top of that. So those of you who were thinking and blogging that the unvaccinated were depriving them of hospital beds might like to rethink.
Perhaps it is profligate spending on the vaccinated that has led to those long queues for tests and treatments for diseases like cancer (10,500 deaths per year) and heart disease (~6,000 deaths per year and rising). Just 52 people have died of Covid in NZ during the last two years and most of those few left in hospital are double vaccinated.
In fact, only a handful of people in NZ have died of Covid, the rest have died with it — there is a difference. The economic disaster poses a major problem for the next National-led government: the Party is well aware that it is going to inherit a huge mess from the Jacinda regime, but the mess may be much bigger than expected.–Eds

The most famous love story
By Roger Childs
“Romeo and Juliet” is Shakespeare’s classic tale of young love set in Verona. It was first performed in 1596. Over three and a half centuries later the modern setting was New York. With music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim the film West Side Story directed by Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise,became a smash hit winning 10 Oscars in 1962, including best film. Fast forward 60 years to 2021 and Steven Spielberg has directed another impressive version.
This compares very favourably with the 1961 movie with realistic sets, impressive acting, and superb singing and dancing. Spielberg’s film is highly entertaining and packs a punch in dealing with feuding gangs, underlying racism, slum clearance, urban policing, gender issues and young love across the ethnic divide: 4.5 stars.
Shakespeare’s original drama is about two powerful families – the Montagues and the Capulets – whose rivalry and antagonism occasionally erupts into violence. To complicate the tense situation between the two houses, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet fall in love, but Romeo is attempting to stop a street fight accidently kills Juliet’s cousin and is banished. Tragically in the end the two lovers each commit suicide in bizarre circumstances. The only positive outcome is that the deaths of the lovers finally brings the family feud to an end.
In 1957 New York the rivalry is between two gangs – the Jets (white boys) lead by Riff and Sharks (Puerto Ricans) headed by Bernardo – who battle to control the streets of a Manhattan tenement area undergoing urban renewal. At a local hop where both gangs and their girl-friends dress up and dance with passion and enthusiasm, Riff’s friend Tony is captivated by Bernardo’s sister Maria and he follows her home.
The Jets and the Sharks agree to having a gang fight (rumble) to decide who will control the area and the ensuing violence results in the deaths of Riff, and Bernardo at the hands of Tony. Subsequent events lead to a climax similar to the original Romeo and Juliet story.
A polished entertaining film
Spielberg does an excellent job in creating the realism of New York’s late 1950s slums with ugly tenements, half demolished buildings and piles of debris. He also keeps the story moving with tight editing and creative cinematography.
The acting is very impressive throughout and in the lead roles Ansel Elgort as Tony and Rachel Zegler as Maria give convincing performances. However perhaps the star of the show is Ariana DeBose as Anita, Bernardo’s partner. Back in the 1961 film Rita Moreno played Anita and won an Oscar, and now in the Spielberg’s version, as well as being an executive producer, she appears as the drug store proprietor Valentina.
The singing and dancing are performed with plenty of passion, feeling and energy which match the dynamism of the first film. The songs will be familiar to many and are performed in appropriate settings, for example America on the streets; Gee Officer Krupke in the police station; I Feel Pretty in a department store where the Puerto Rican young women work.
Entertainment is guaranteed in Spielberg’s West Side Story and there is plenty of action, colour, drama and romance as well as grim reality as the story unfolds towards its inevitable tragic conclusion.
This winter’s cold weather is getting harsh for us all. Now, imagine what it would be like for stray animals. As the climate kept changing in Egypt over the last couple of years, we have been witnessing heavy rains and a noticeable drop in temperature, creating even harder conditions for animals in the street.
Egyptian sustainability-conscious designer Ibrahim Abougendy, founder of Mobikya, a startup focused on green solutions and upcycling, came up with an ingenious solution to keep stray cats warm and safe in winter. In collaboration with Petman, an E-commerce pet supplies shop founded by Aly Zeineldin, they both created ‘Sheltires’, mobile shelters made of upcycled tires giving animals more protection in winter.
Focusing on sustainability and with keenness to save as many stray animals as possible, the mobile shelters were designed to keep cats isolated and shielded from the cold temperatures.
“Stray animals live in very tough conditions, especially in winter where they hide in tires to escape the rain and the cold weather. With the unprecedented climate change hitting Egypt the past two years, we’ve been thinking about effective ways to help stray animals survive the weather conditions and to keep them feeling warm and safe. So together with Petman, we invented the ‘Sheltire’, infinity-shaped upcycled tires with two units as mobile shelters. We made use of tires and other waste materials, such as old wood that people usually throw away, to save stray animals and our planet.” said Ibrahim.
This is another type of story that you’ll never see in NZ’s Legacy Media as it doesn’t square with the Globalists’ false ‘rising temperatures’ narrative. TV1 / TV3 / Stuff etc. will rejoice in any story about heatwaves somewhere, but colder winters — that’s not in accord with their religious teaching. —Eds
All Chief Constables in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales are now aware of the live criminal complaint/investigation with The Metropolitan Police, the allocated crime number and the ICC application to The Hague and their acknowledgment.
There is now no excuse for the Police from any force or the Mayor of London to ignore the calls to stop the jabbing program as a matter of urgency. This is being made public to assist and encourage all of the victims who want to make criminal complaints to come forward and do so.
We are in possession of a vast amount of evidence to show and prove vitamin C, vitamin D, Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine and zinc are all proven and safe treatments for the virus, COVID-19 SARS Cov 2. This information can be provided to the Police as supporting proof of a live criminal investigation taking place by The Metropolitan Police.
The Police and the Mayor are public servants and they have a duty of care to protect us from harm, injury, death and loss. The significant amount of irrefutable and damning evidence shows and proves the current vaccine program is causing harm, injury and death on a massive scale. The scale of these harms is being deliberately suppressed by the Government and the Media. They have all been deliberately suppressed and the public refused access to said medications in place of a vaccine that has been rushed, still in their trial stages, using emergency legislation and the unnecessary introduction of the Coronavirus Act 2020.
There is also evidence that scientific recommendations and advice have been influenced by commercial and private interests rather than public health and that those direct or indirect interests have not been transparently declared.
Further, there is also evidence that the public health response has been based on unreliable data generated from PCR and LFT tests which are inaccurate and unfit for purpose and withdrawn from use in other jurisdictions as a health hazard. There is no evidence of an isolated virus.There is also evidence that Midazolam and Remdesivir has been used inappropriately and has caused death and injury which has later been ascribed as caused by SARS COV2.
Notwithstanding this we have also supplied The Metropolitan Police a list of forty world renowned experts from a list of approximately twelve thousand, Doctors, Professors. Immunologists, Virologists, Lawyers, Barristers and data analytical experts all available to fully support the assertions made, provide their expertise and credibility to assist The Metropolitan police and any other UK police force with this very serious criminal investigation. Please also be aware an application has been made and acknowledged by the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Acknowledgment was received on the 6th of December 2021, some of those named in the ICC complaint are also named responsible in the criminal complaint lodged at the Metropolitan Police.
The complaint is against a number of UK Government Ministers, C.E.O’s of all Covid vaccine manufacturers, Dr Anthony Fauci, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum, Tedros Adhanom W.H.O, Peter Daszack President of the Heath alliance, June Raine of the MHRA and Dr Rajiv Shah of the Rockefeller foundation.
The victims are the people of the United Kingdom. This accepted application now places a duty on The Metropolitan Police and all forty-three Police forces in England and Wales to carry out a full and competent criminal investigation. The Metropolitan Police are now aware of the ICC application and the ICC are also aware of The Metropolitan Police and their criminal investigation, they’ve also been made aware we have notified all forty three Chief Constables of the same.
It is now incumbent upon you all to treat this as a national emergency. To individually and collectively notify the general public to stop taking the vaccines, to make contact with all Healthcare establishments in the United Kingdom and advise them to withdraw all vaccines and stop administering them straight away. The vaccines must be seized as evidence in a criminal investigation and placed into secure detained property to be independently forensically examined.
This is a genuine cause for concern and be reassured this is not vexatious or frivolous in any way. Superintendent Jon P. Simpson, assistant to Commissioner Cressida Dick, is aware of this criminal complaint and acknowledged same by email to one of the original informants on the 23rd of December 2021. Metropolitan Police crime number 6029679/21 Hammersmith Police Station Officers allocated, DS Mallett PC Irvine. International Criminal Court, The Hague, Netherlands, case reference number, OTP-CR-473/21 Submitting Lawyer: Hannah Rose.
We respectfully request as a matter of public safety to halt all Covid-19 vaccines to prevent any more unnecessary harm, injury and death being caused. We ask for acknowledgment of receipt of this email without delay and thank you in anticipation of same.
Yours sincerely, Philip Hyland, Lois Bayliss, Dr Sam White, Hannah Rose, Mark Sexton.

Carlene Louise is clear — they have a required ceremony for ‘fiscal envelopes’, but want to avoid the big protests they’ll get from tangata whenua over their covid behaviour if they show up on the actual day
