    All depends on the degree of self sufficiency and population think NZ 2 million plus, Oz 20 million plus. JS....

    NZ has a population of bout 4.5 million, of which according to friends in Tauranga about 30% have been vaccinated.
    Oz has a population of about 25.6 million with about 11.4 million had at least one shot.

    NZ PM said last week, 'we need to get a bit of a move on with the vaccination program'

    Biggest hold up for both nations was the EU and their ban on the export of vaccines to them.
    But that has now been removed and Pfizer coming into Oz at the rate of about 1 million a week.

    There was an article on the gov web site last week indicating that international borders to a number of countries, mainly those considered to be fully vaccinated will take place from April 1st. 2022.

    As we are due a Feral Erection by no later than May 2022 it is quite feseable.

    Just announced, daily Vaccination rate here in Oz running at about 185,000 per day.

    A recent report suggested:

    25/07/2021 The number of active cases in New Zealand is 58 – all in managed isolation.

    There in lies the problem John, most of the WOKERS most likely never went to school so no difference to them.

    But the question remains what exactly does WOKE mean?
    Obviously a logo or some idealogical syndrome that only they know about.

    Reminds me of a similar one I attempted to start when in the pubs.
    SFHUP
    Society for hard up publicans.

    Sounds a bit like shut, which is what the WOKERS should do shut up.

    Woke people are those persons who are offended on behalf of persons who were never offended in the first place.

    How very dare you Sir !. I can't speak for the rest of the crew here but I am neither a Woke,nor prejudiced,nor a Karen,a Statue Toppler or a Knee Taker,(I would never get up again ) and I did indeed notice your atrocious deliberately- on- purpose rendition of the ' Isle of White' ,but thought in the interests of harmony on board to grit my teeth and overlook it.I will however flutter my Proofreader Plus Certificate in your face !

    Donated a small whisky to myself after going **** over tip backwards while raking up some branches, training came to the fore as I slapped my hand down to take the shock, but the best of the best was I fell behind a bush, therefore saving me embarrassment from being seen by the two painters working next door. But it didn't save me from my wife's wrath.
