JB’s Thursday’s Tribulations

This story headlined in Canada also. Unbelievable

“What day is it? asked Winnie the Pooh. 
It’s today, squeaked Piglet. 
My favourite day, said Pooh.

Good afternoon from far away New Zealand. Well far away for many of you!

And today I am in despair. From being praised around the world for how we managed the pandemic, and to a great extent, controlled it; to our Prime Minister being lauded wherever she went – she even took her newborn to the UN; to being in the forefront of the race against single-use plastic, and there is a whole new raft of items that will no longer be allowed from October 6; to finally becoming the butt of everyone’s jokes. And yes, the pun was intended.

Around the world, we/you read of the latest nonsense being promulgated by our government. Headlines around the world proclaim New Zealand outlines plans to tax livestock burps, farts 

And with a population around 5,000,000 we have a cow population around 10,000,000 according to Statistics NZ. So a lot of cows to be numbered and then an appropriate tax determined for each type – beef or dairy. My mind bogles at the nonsense. 

Please excuse me while I hide my face in shame at this new absurdity.
