Something I seem to be observing in the last week or so.
 Before there was a lot of Government statements concerns expressed and money handed out willy nilly to support cutural sections of our population how just dont want the be vaccinated in spite of their own experts and Covid experts.
Now in the last week or so, still have Iwi , local groups jumping up and down .. stay way.. more support, colonialism at work again , racist BS.
And the government is just saying to the whole country
"Covid is coming to you, protect yourself and get 2x vacced  ASAP"
 
Its my impression the Government has either given up pumping more support in, or it is releasing to do so endlessly is not a very good political look.. votes.

Sad part is , if my impression is correct, the reason is another action late, 'made up as go on the fly'..for actions and stand taken long ago on a more honorable basis.

 Armed forces where on stand by 1st lockdown for check points and such.. not used..Iwi check points ineffect condoned illegally by the government.
I agree if check points cant be fully manned by the police then they should be supported by the armed forces...
Might keep the gangs crossing borders unchecked with their illicit goods as well.

Permanent stop everyone checkpoints are just not feasible long term. Look at what got through even when they were stopping everyone.
It's up to everyone to do the best that they can for themselves and their loved ones now.
Yes it enrages me that certain ones think they are above the law, but for now I'm not going to fill my thought life with them and ruin my day. We do have a choice.
you can't fix an idiot with duct tape, but it does muffle them for a while...

What exactly are people up far north for example afraid of?
You cant seriously tell me the un-vaxed up there actually give a rats arse about Covid.
This whole situation is just playing into there Hands as a reason to keep people away from "There" lands.
Like we are gonna sit around and pander to these
idiots for ever is just beyond belief.
You wait and see the backlash this summer when people who are perfectly entitled to travel are turned around by some random iwi member wearing a high vis.

There  is a page 2,  with nothing on it. So may as well type something. People with no legitimate right to, should not have ability to do road blocks regardless of political persuasion, One rule of of law. Far north was not separate principality controlled by minority of local malitia last year. What’s the story now. I need to go fishing for marlin now, possibly violent if stopped but am double vexed.

I think its important to remember that Hone only represents a very very small minority, He is just an activist and has a long storied history of aggitating and generally being very provocative. Dont lump the 178k sane rational people in with Hone, he is just blowing wind up his own backside.Given his mother and brothers history of physically assaulting carrington mental health clients, youd be forgiven for thinking he copped one to many floggings as a kid...

fair enough most people in far north are sane, understand concern re lower vaccinated population… need to get rate up, I have a good tan on and bit of Maori heritage from BOP, but this talk of stoping people who are vaxed or maybe not vaxed outside a govt police controlled checkpoint is saddition, unsanctioned and illegal. However best intentioned, and probably won’t stuff up my season as generally only go as far as bland bay or more often tuts. Still makes it wrong. Pollies need to say not on and enforce what is meant to happen according to rules they’ve announced. Simple.

Good post. As with any area of politics, a small agitating minority have the loudest voice which is unfortunate.

Bit of irony here.
 One one hand we have Brian tamaki and the 'freedom ' protesters protesting restrictions on 'emergency mandates, claiming nazi and communist government etc (forget right or wrong for now)

On the other hand we now have groups, primary those who have the freedom to choose not to be vacced in well know holiday areas, knowing holidays coming up , knowing . mandates being loosened. now restricting the freedoms of the majority of (vacced) New Zealanders to move around the country and even to their own places (baches etc) they pay rates to subsidize the ppl who are at risk by choice.

If the government panders to a minority (under 10% of the population) who are at risk by choice...

Where then, are the same 'Brian Tamaki' and religious organisations, and  freedom fighters protesting this gross freedom of movement we have under the human rights bill and United Nations Charters?

Bottom line any road blocks outside mandated emergency regulations (eg red zones) are then illegal with government support....

Now where are the freedom ppl? 
Makes them a joke... bigger joke.

Police are working with iwi in Northland to manage checkpoints after 15 December when the borders around Auckland reopen to ensure that those travelling from Auckland meet the new requirements.

I wonder what dirt Maori/ gangs  etc have on this government.
This entire sarga of empowering iwi to block roads is simply not normal politics at all.
The amount of damage done to this country already is irreversible, at least 2 more years of this madness.
Jesus....why the hell did people vote for this completely incompetent and as it seems totally corrupt  hack of a party.

"I wonder what dirt Maori/ gangs  etc have on this government."

I have had an answer to that proposed to me by several people.
I can't print it here, but maybe some can guess it.
There are plenty of people wondering, and the answer seems to be the same in every case.
I should clarify a bit. Maori - there are votes in it.
Gangs - no votes in pandering to gangs. Has to be another reason :-)
