  1. Yet vaxx mass will go on because the boys and the mattress need to cash in. No efforts to address the health care crisis we face because the politicians can be flown, using tax dollars, overseas should anything happen to them. HE LIES AND LEO ARE WICKED MEN AND HAVE BROUGHT THE SLP TO THE LOWEST OF THE LOW WITH THEIR GREED AND CORRUPT SELVES. Their only interests are themselves and FF. I regret voting this party. One year is almost up …4 more is not a long time and they can kiss any return to power good bye. If they believe they can come to the people who put themselves out just before elections to fool them to campaign for them again they better think twice…….because fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

    • Why is a 91 year old dying inflaming such tensions? That’s the only thing left to do at that age and the ages of pretty much all the people they count as “covid deaths”.
