I’m sure all NZ readers know what has happened in Wellington. I hardly need describe it.
If the Prime Minister had met with the Parliament protest leaders when a meeting was requested it would not have come to this. The leaders of the protest agreed, in writing, that they would leave peacefully and clean up after themselves when this was over. Instead we have this wretched mess created by a bungled and inconsistent police response. And won’t the MSM be loving it.
Last night they reported protestors “slashing” police car tires as the cops dismantled makeshift showering facilities. Truth is that someone let air out of the tires. Talk about misreporting. Several days back the same MSM reported police officers being “attacked with an unknown stinging substance”. Truth emerged that some cop pepper-sprayed his fellow officers by accident. The MSM remain reticent to report that fact.
What the MSM won’t show you: Protestors stand with their backs to pepper-spray wielding Police. Cops ripping, tearing, littering and destroying. This mess will be blamed on the protestors no doubt!
Share the video and images widely, get the truth out!

And now the PM emerges from her bunker to say how “saddened” she is by it all. Oh, yes, now she makes an appearance, now the protestors have been removed. How courageous. Turning on the sprinklers and playing obnoxious music failed. Blocking the portaloos from being serviced failed (thanks to some innovative plumbing work!) and so it’s back to the hardline tactics. Ardern leading the charge from the rear no doubt.
Surely, this is the worst of outcomes. No one in their right mind wanted it to go this way.
