The Reserve Bank used to have a sweet job. …

I was slightly disturbed at reportage that Judith Collins was trying to bring Simon bridges into line over his Coster ‘wokester’ comments I hope it’s not true, because what this country needs - all countries need - is strong opposition.

A good piece on Newsroom - What’s the rush? Law making in a hurry - deals with the governments use of urgency and specifically around the change to Māori wards for councils.

Seven cases and the country's biggest city, yet again, is locked down. Parts of New Zealand so far away from the seven cases being in level two seemed absurd.
