Dunedin’s panic-mongering epidemiologist David Skegg struggles with the English language. He told Morning Report, “elimination is a process, not a destination.” That’s gibberish.

Readers may feel I’m being pedantic. Not so. It annoys me when people trot out glib nonsense and it’s simply acceptable as an oracle-like utterance.
