A sour taste left in the mouths of many, and one that is very topical this week as COVID-19 fatigue takes hold to the point where some North Shore influencers made the decision to selfishly disregard the lockdown rules as if they don’t apply to them.
A party attended by 50 of New Zealands next apsiring influencers… what could possibly go wrong? Why has it caused so much of an outrage across the country? These are questions that clearly the partygoers are struggling to comprehend. Let me get my dry-humping fix while people video and post it online – because I can…
The party’s host has been arrested and is due to appear in court. I like many other rule abiding New Zealanders are eagerly awaiting the outcome. Why? If we cast our minds back to last August when a women was given a 14-day jail sentence for escaping her isolation facility alongside her children to attend their fathers tangi. The judge said in terms of this particluar case there was a sense of selfishness in the offense, as she put herself before the safety of the community and how that wasn’t in accordance with tikanga.
The North Shore party, happening during a time where Auckland itself is recording between 50-70 cases a day, bleeds selfishness. At a time where there is a clear difference between patroling and the media coverage between the privileged and those from South Auckland. Will this reflect a sense of our same storm different boats? Let’s hope so – I wait with baited breathe!
