Media won’t retract their live-on-air comments for the unvaccinated to be refused medical treatment, socially ostracised and forcibly removed from vaccinated communities.

The Broadcasting Standards Authority did not uphold a complaint about Hilary Barry’s denigration of the unvaccinated as sub-human when she said the unvaccinated were not welcome in her home and they could “jump on a ferry and go to the Auckland Islands for a few years…then when we’ve got rid of COVID…come back”.

Human rights didn’t factor during Covid and, by contrast, in 2023 the BSA protected the feelings of transgenders saying “Trans and non-binary people were vulnerable to harm by being referred to with a name or pronoun that did not accurately reflect their gender” and “found the term ‘people with cervixes’ was accurate and did not denigrate women”.

The BSA are typical of government-funded COVID hysteria and double standards, but why were the unvaccinated targeted if the vaccine actually did what was promised and prevented transmission?

What happened to that doyen of the Imperial College who predicted 80,000 NZ Covid deaths, paving the way for stringent lockdowns, social distancing, masking and vaccine mandates?

By 5 May 2020 Ferguson had resigned from his position as a “key player in developing the British government’s response to COVID-19” but not because of the faulty modelling; Ferguson’s resignation was triggered by his public admission that he’d broken lockdown restrictions to meet his married lover.

COVID hysteria triggered hypocrisy in the one-rule-for-you-but-not-me health experts (we had our own pink-haired health hypocrite) and over 11,000 surreptitious exemptions to the vaccine mandate quietly issued to “health staff” and only acknowledged following an OIA.

The people formulating and enforcing Covid policy refused to comply with their own rules.

UK health experts momentarily toyed with but discounted pursuing natural herd immunity which may have been achieved by letting the virus spread but protecting the elderly and physically vulnerable.

Of course, Western hands were tied by WHO’s advice not to use Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine, both of which being used successfully in combination with other medications.

The current evidence on the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 patients is inconclusive the WHO said in a statement in late March. Until more data is [sic] available, WHO recommends that the drug only be used within clinical trials.


It made perfect sense for the WHO to reject a very inexpensive Nobel prize-winning drug with a prestigious safety track record in favour of the new, very expensive and incompletely tested vaccines and anti-virals.

Following the WHO’s recommendations meant New Zealand would ignore the century-old practice of herd immunity to reduce disease transmission in livestock and in humans prior to the introduction of vaccines in the 1950s and 1960s.

“How did herd immunity enter the language of public health? The phrase seems to have first appeared in the work of American livestock veterinarians concerned about “contagious abortion”—epidemics of spontaneous miscarriage—in cattle and sheep. By the 1910s, it had become the leading contagious threat to cattle in the USA. Farmers destroyed or sold affected cows. Kansas veterinarian George Potter realised that this was the wrong approach. Writing with Adolph Eichhorn in 1916 in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, he envisioned “herd immunity”. As he wrote in 1918, “Abortion disease may be likened to a fire, which, if new fuel is not constantly added, soon dies down. Herd immunity is developed, therefore, by retaining the immune cows, raising the calves, and avoiding the introduction of foreign cattle.”

Thus, New Zealand health experts did not consider natural immunity, choosing an elimination strategy followed by the pursuit of herd immunity through vaccination.

“New Zealand needs to “maintain its elimination strategy” while it works to achieve herd immunity through vaccines, says Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield.”

But Bloomfield should have known at least six months earlier that Neil Ferguson’s Covid modelling was faulty and that predictions of NZ Covid deaths were wildly exaggerated.

On 18 May 2020 Kevin Dayaratna PhD, Chief Statistician, Data Scientist, Senior Research Fellow of The Heritage Foundation, said he had attempted to replicate Ferguson’s Covid modelling after asking “Ferguson and his colleagues for their model on multiple occasions to see how they got their numbers, but they never replied to my emails”.

“We now know the model was so highly flawed it never should have been relied upon for policy decisions to begin with.

As we learn more about the new coronavirus, it is imperative to continue to update the assumptions used in these models.

The Imperial College model didn’t meet any of these criteria. And sadly, its model was one of the inputs relied on as the basis for locking down two countries.”

How did the projected 80,000 Covid deaths stack up against actual deaths?

In 2022 NZ Doctors Speaking Out with Science (NZDSOS) looked at NZ records of Covid deaths and vaccine deaths and injury estimating “in the most vulnerable age group of 65 years and above, the inoculation causes five times the number of deaths compared to deaths attributed to Covid, whether from Covid or with Covid”.

Down under, in the land shrouded by an impenetrable cloud of COVID hysteria, you might surmise the motivation of the incompetent Ardern Government was tyrannical control of voters made possible by subjugating health experts and mainstream media.

We could have avoided huge social and financial mayhem had our health experts and the MSM done their jobs, rather than accept government bribes to look the other way.

In mid-2020 prior to the following hellish years, an apology along the lines of ‘I’m sorry, we overestimated Covid deaths, let’s revisit our health policies’ would have avoided, or at the very least, substantially downgraded the rollout of the toxic vaccine in February 2021.

But instead of easing Covid restrictions, the Ardern Government pushed them harder, reintroducing lockdowns in August 2020 and leaving Covid restrictions – including vaccine mandates – in place for another two years when they were lifted on 12 September 2022.

We can’t turn back the clock but until the authorities responsible for the NZ Covid debacle acknowledge their mistakes destroying lives and livelihoods, they won’t respond to a new health threat any differently from Covid.

I am happily a New Zealander whose heritage shaped but does not define. Four generations ago my forebears left overcrowded, poverty ridden England, Ireland and Germany for better prospects here. They were...
