    Some say 2 stroke fumes actually kill the virus.

    Even though 2 strokes vibrate at non ionizing frequencies, they are still not proven to be safe..

    Pakistani Cricket Team = Asshats.

    Fully aware of the required restrictions for arrivals here in NZ

    So as we enjoy the freedoms of Level 1 Covid restrictions, it appears that the most excellently arrogant Asshat Shoaib Akhtar thinks its an over reaction when of his teem-mates test positive on day 1 of isolation and are reminded to comply with the restrictions of managed isolation.

    He is threatening to cancel his former team’s tour of the country.
    He also suggested the Pakistan Cricket Board consider boycotting New Zealand for five years.
    “The PCB should show some toughness,”
    Whatever Asshat - fill ya boots!

    And equally most excellently arrogant Pakistani sports journalist Asshat Shoaib Jatt posted criticism of New Zealand’s attitude towards the Pakistani players on Twitter, saying it was “degrading”.

    Sorry Asshats. We did the hard yards got on top of this.

    And Ripleys you Asshats want to go on a tour of the country no less.

    So you and your Asshat mates ether pull your heads in and comply with isolation or pack your bags.

    Home to where there 3000 odd new cases every day.


    As I type this another member has tested positive.

    Must admit I've been thinking a bus to the airport would sort it.

    Agree with the sentiment. However I think he knows NZ Cricket desperately needs the $ that this tour offers, hence his/their rather arrogant stance. I personally think we don't need the shit that these guys are bringing.

    At least the health authorities are policing things, rather than anyone with a vested interest.

    Stuff NZ Cricket coffers.
    Thankfully out Govt of the day took action to protect us Kiwis from threats both foreign and domestic.
    We, collectively as a nation grabbed this Covid thing by the nose and kicked it in the ass.
    Stopped it in its tracks.
    And with managed isolation continue to enjoy Level 1 freedom of movement.
    If we dont manage this it will be off like a robbers dog.

    In my provincial town the hospital got 1 chiller container delivered and set for every ICU bed.
    Think about that. It was to store the bodies should this thing get away. Pretty sure it happened all over.
    Fortunately they were not needed because we were successful.

    Pakistanis can comply or fly.

    I guess it all comes back on the Pakistan team in the end.

    No doubt there will be more incidents like this as we get into summer. Americas cup etc.

    As Kiwi Mo said, we have pretty much all done as asked and have our normal lifestyle, kinda, because of that. Being regularly in touch with people in the UK, Europe and the US, it's hard to overstate how lucky we are.

    Maybe if we actually set up one of those camps the right wing attention seekers have accused us of, with the added seasoning of armed guards and dogs, for those who are naughty they might think twice.

    Oh, gotta have orange overalls, too.

    Dunno why the US Ambassador was allowed to waltz in on a private jet... Let me think that through.

    "Comply or fly"

    Most excellent.

    I'm singularly unimpressed with the duplicity of allowing in sports teams but not people we need for our business operations.

    Priorities are all wrong in my view.

    Yeah, I'm struggling to figure out that criteria, too.

    You're obviously not a fan of the Colosseum.

    Very wise.

    Professional sport is a business, most of it belongs squarely in the entertainment industry. When you alter the rules of your game or invent new versions of it to make it more interesting to watch, it's no longer about the game.
