Snippets from new Zealand today---and ---just NZ!
I shall keep it short and free from the terrible events overseas. Let's stay KIWI! 1) Auckland health authorities are expecting a surge in flu-like afflictions over the next few weeks. It seems that the hospityals are strecthed to the,imit as people head for the free servoes that are available in NZ. A plea has gone out for people to only go to A and E departments if they deam their situations to be serious. Judgement will be high on everyone's list, eh. Oh well, it is better to be safe than sorry, even if that means overworking our already dilligent doctors and nurses in NZ's excellent public health serice. 2) Valerie Adamns, New Zealand's version of Wonder Woman' or the world's best 'shot-putter,' is going to be the Queen for the day as she holds high NZ's banner at the entry and opening ceremony for the Commonwealth Games in Scotland, the land of the free and possibly newly independant nation, if a large portion of that said country's people have their way soon. Valerie will enter the stadium with her head held high ion the knowledge that no one has beaten her at her chosen sport in more than 50 'meets.' Fabulous! 3) If you have chikens, you better count them! Yes, you must not have more than 6 or the city council will come down on you like a ton of bricks. Now we can't have that or your little egg-producing friends may get squished. Now, that doesn't mean that you can off-load your excess feathery delights into our public parks, adding to the dog crap that already lays in waiting for unsuspecting walkers. Yuck. I always pick up Perdy's little additions. So if ya got chooks, mates, count the buggers! How very ----rural eh! 4) David---you havn't said sorry today---yet---so please keep it that way. We don';t want you knonw as the guy who would be King' always started with--'I am so sorry for---whatever the feck it is for the day.' Y0ou have good policies and that is what we want to hear. NO more crocodile tears, just policy, policy and then some. Keep us informed, becuase there is enough shite going on that make us all feel sorry on your behalf! AS FOR the rest of the world---may we have a day off please! I like my little spot down at the bottom of the South Pacific! www.authorneilcoleman.com
