So why did the government buy and unaccredited product from overseas instead of an accredited product from within NZ?
On the face of it, complete and utter incompetence, again, from the MoH. In a crisis where testing is the most critical component of the response. So you would expect his component of the response, saliva testing, would be under the microscope from the Minister of Health, the Director General of Health, the Minister of Finance and the Prime Minister.
Yet on the face of it, a ludicrous choice was made. Waiting for the answer...
The answer to your question is a definite yes JohnO. Stand by for a snow jo on the governments response from their two spin doctors Rich and Keith :)

I do not expect any honesty when and if a government spokesperson fronts up. I
big emphasis on the 'if' unless a journalist shows up.

One journalist has turned up - all of six months ago - and very informative he has proved on several fronts - all of which are decidedly crucial both to public health and public finances, and the murkier questions involving the opacity of the "commercially sensitive" ethic.

From three weeks back, a little background history. I commend it to any who may wish to get up to speed.

Peters' inquiry may have legs. It makes good sense, then, to await the Auditor General's response. So if there is suspicion, panic and pillorying to be hyped - and when is there not? - then those who just can't help succumbing to such self-demeaning neuroses might be well advised to husband their theatrics for a real good old scandal.
