    Default Prime Minister, not all of your "team of 5 million" is that stupid

    So our PM tells us she personally has secured additional doses of vaccine and these - as she speaks - are already winging their way from Europe to us in the antipodes.

    As much as you would like to think and us to believe your "personal friends" are altruistic, in the big bad world of commerce - and politics, there's no such thing as a free lunch. So when do we find out what the hook is?

    And when do you realise that not all your team is going to swallow the story you are personally overseeing the progress of this mercy flight by watching - on a flight watching app - to make sure nothing goes wrong? Puh-lease, Prime Minister, that sort of stuff is designed to keep prepubescent kiddies occupied each Christmas while they watch Santa's supposed progress from the North Pole with his sleigh full of goodies.

    In case it may have escaped you Prime Minister most of your 5 million are not prepubescent kiddies, and deserve more respect. Not all of us appreciate being patronised with such condescending bull****. This is not Christmas. This is serious stuff we're managing.

    Time for you to grow up.

    Trouble is they have to "Dumb it down" as there's way to many people who don't understand anything more "adult".

    You see it all the time -- Go onto any social media platform and soon after any announcement there's all these dumb questions about what was said - Some people it just doesn't register.

    Spot on. I lurk on a couple of local yokel FB groups, someone will post say an upcoming event with all the details there, time, date venue, etc, and some dipstick will always ask "where is this" or "when is it".

    THIS is why at Countdown I have to push a button to tell it I want to proceed, when scanning something should be more than effing adequate!

    Apparently it's for the benefit of the 0.01% that can't work out if they need a machine that accepts cash or not. We get treated like the lowest common denominator.

    Jaysus it pisses me off no end!

    Rant over.

    But rest easy in your beds, Kiwis ... Police and Defence Force staff seek to protect us from those beastly characters who think the grass is greener on the other side of the border

    Police staff did get a surprise when some local four-legged residents decided they wanted to try to breach our strict border restrictions.

    Forty cattle stampeded from a paddock onto Mercer Ferry Road before Police staff managed to herd them onto Orams Road.

    The cattle soon realised the grass was not greener on the other side and started to head back to their own property facilitated by Police, Defence Force staff and the farmer at the property.

    Police decided to let the cattle off with a warning on this occasion.

    I hated the entire drama right from when it first started last year.
