Predictably there’s been calls from our abundant supply of wets, calling Dr Ashley Bloomfield the Man of the Year.
This rings a bell.
A decade back the same calls occurred for the Pike River Mine manager Peter Whittall as Man of the Year. The common denominator; both making nightly TV appearances repeating themselves. Whittall ended up in our criminal court. Bloomfield should bugger off and the government start governing instead of abdicating the role to a health specialist. Sure it’s a health issue but there’s immensely wider economic implications at stake outside Bloomfield’s terrain which the government has blithely ignored.
