More like chasms the size of the Grand Canyon :)
Fact is, the story is about those numberless Grand Canyon chasms that today characterise that bugger's muddle known as the National Party and every inept move and noise they make. I note Thomas also likens John Key corporate clone Luxon to National's sometime "leader", the bewildered lawmower repair chappie. Time may yet tell.
Fact is, Ben Thomas has also been particularly adroit in having used National's representation in a Health select committee hearing as a way of introducing the piece, his tone essentially being, "They're as bad as one another" - PKB.
Among Labour's own Covid-19 shortcomings is a service delivery problem at the border/MIQ level. Here's a report re-published by Stuff:
Putting aside the emotive element, if I have it right, hotel cleaners and bed-pan scrubbers et al are working on and in the critical front line of anti-Covid-19 control. Apparently, unqualified/unsuitable for the additional roles thrust upon them, they work among and in direct contact with potential live-virus carriers on a routine and intensive interpersonal basis.
Each is personally answerable for any error they make within the strictures of their imposed remit.
It appears this invisible army of unsung Covid-19-control conscripts-by-default are also expected to carry out their critical must-not-fail duties on the minimum/living wage.
So, do you or anyone on this group wanna give it a go - under the same critical conditions and on their pay?
