Coronavirus is more of a reason to sort out the stadium

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, It's easy to say things shouldn't be done because we need to focus on Covid-19 elimination, but maybe that's more of an argument to sort out the stadium plan. Read the story below.

Cannabis

David from Glen Eden

The biggest nonsense I read is the comparison with alcohol as if it was an excuse to support cannabis. That is enough to kill any decision to add yet another mind bending drug to one we all ready can't handle. We are talking about cannabis, not alcohol or the price of fish.

The biggest nonsense I read is the comparison with alcohol as if it was an excuse to support cannabis. That is enough to kill any decision to add yet another mind bending drug to one we all ready can't handle. We are talking about cannabis, not alcohol or the price of fish.
If cannabis was harmless there wouldn't be ANY discussion at all about it. The stuff damages younger brains, can be addictive and can lead to worse drugs. It does nothing to improve social standards of behaviour and the people who crave it and deal in it are not generally the brightest of the species. The finest solution would be to apply the law and remove every trace and mention of it from society. And that includes the gangs. As a medicine, no problem, just give it another name and if the medical world endorse its use by prescription, ok. The fact that we can't or don't enforce existing laws is a poor excuse to legalise this stuff. Some countries, disciplined ones, even have the death sentence on the books for dealers of the stuff. The police have enough to do without another set of convoluted rules on any legal use of cannabis which they will never be able to properly enforce.

Sick leave

David from Glen Eden

The old saying about colds and flu, "three days coming, three days suffering and three days going" would support a 10 days sick leave. That also tends to fit better with covid-19 to worry about. And of course employers will squeal but possibly without real justification. If a worker … View moreThe old saying about colds and flu, "three days coming, three days suffering and three days going" would support a 10 days sick leave. That also tends to fit better with covid-19 to worry about. And of course employers will squeal but possibly without real justification. If a worker catches flu or other virus then goes to work and infects five or ten others then it is clearly better if sick leave was used promptly. There is nothing worse than the stalwart worker who means well going to work sneezing over everyone else. I think perhaps a doctors certificate may be wise for longer than four days off. Then of course we have to sadly accept the few who will misuse their sick leave, something no decent person would ever do. I would go further, if a person taking sick leave was seen at the footy match then they should expect to be fired. It is dishonest and we don't like to employ such people.

The Broken Bridge!

Nine engineers!! Why doesn't one of them dig out the original engineering drawings, have the replacement parts made, third party inspected, then fitted. Maximum time, say two weeks??

Nine engineers!! Why doesn't one of them dig out the original engineering drawings, have the replacement parts made, third party inspected, then fitted. Maximum time, say two weeks??
While I'm on my beer crate, why have we not got a second crossing. It has been talked about for years and years and years! And all they do is talk talk talk. Where is the resolve, the go get, the leadership. Why are we dead from the neck up?????
And while I'm at it, why isn't Whenuapai made ready for use as a second Auckland airport. Imagine the scene when the Mangere airport runway is unusable?? It will happen one day.

Why do we wait for disasters when obvious needs can be easily foreseen and when we have the resources?? It's called planning. PLANNING with foresight.
Same with water supplies, car parking(sick) and road quality. Why do we pay such huge salaries for incompetence????

If I decide to vote National I will vote for euthanasia. If I vote for Labour I 'may' vote against it. I don't fancy our chances of top class hospital care if they face short funding yet again even without another covid-19 wave..

I don't fancy our chances of top class hospital care if they face short funding yet again even without another covid-19 wave.. Health care has not recovered from the last National innings and remains under funded. Even privatisation has been sniffed at in the past. Is that a possibility? The choice of lives saved versus the economy exposes serious and sensitive moral values. Covid-19 doesn't have morals.
