Capitulation is the Only Option
After the High Court handed the regime their collective arse-[kicks] regarding mandates for Police and the Armed Forces it should have been a wake-up call for them to stop illegally breaking the Bill of Rights Act. I hazard a guess that many business owners who put in place their own draconian mandates will have uttered expletives about their own predicament in breaching the Bill of Rights.
There will be many workers mandated out of jobs or forced to suffer illegal medical procedures who will be eying up that judgment and looking for retribution against uncaring bosses and businesses.
But lawyer Stephen Franks makes a sensible suggestion for the Government, and indeed business owners as to how they can start to extricate themselves from the problems they now face:
He’s right of course, but I suspect the regime will double-down and do one of two things. They will either appeal immediately, and drag this on for as long as possible, or they will immediately launch retrospective legislation under urgency to extricate themselves from their predicament.
Both actions, of course, are the actions of bullies and tyrants, but that’s what they will do.
The tyrant, Jacinda Ardern, now having to run from protests wherever she goes, has stark choices, none of which have palatable solutions for her or her corrupted regime. Any and all choices, from announcing an end to mandates or appealing the decision, or rushing through ill-judged legislation, essentially hand victory to the protestors and those of us who stood strong and held the line against mandates.
As each day passes and it becomes more and more obvious that the vaccines have neither stopped people contracting Covid, nor prevented them from spreading the virus, the more apparent it is that the narrative is lost.
