I wonder if it's the same idiot that Liz Gunn did an interview with (she called it a "MOAR") a couple of days ago. I believe he's actually an investment banker but somehow he knows all about vaccines, enough that she described him as a "whistleblower"...when he's actually anything but 🙄

 

His name was Winston something-or-other (not Peters) but I think his real name might be Robert?

Were we all supposed to be dead a year or so ago, all that got basic vaccinations?
I suppose those that got the boosters and the top up are double and triple dead?

Oh I've seen the cookers make comments about that too. First of all it was "all dead in 12 months", then it became 2 years, then 5, then 10...and counting.

 

They just keep on moving the goalposts to suit whatever conspiracy they're following this week.

 

I used to work with someone who is unfortunately now one of them. Even more unfortunately she runs a restaurant in Birkenhead and was mocking the government's coronavirus steps when the lockdowns, etc were in place.

 

I've made it a business of mine to never give her my patronage, ever (as well as telling everyone I know not to eat there as well).

Apparently this person is/was a database administrator. It doesn't look like this person's job involved analysing data, even less medical data.

 

So, yeah...

Confidence may be high. she seemed to know who they were after at the time so has a link to them.

Former TV presenter and conspiracy theorist Liz Gunn took to X, formerly Twitter, this afternoon to report police surrounded the “whistleblower’s” house at 2.15pm and that an arrest was imminent

Changing the subject!

 

Interesting outcome.

 

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2811939

 

"Findings  In this cross-sectional study including data from the Ontario Birth Study, pandemic-exposed children had significantly higher problem solving and fine motor skills at 24 months of age but lower personal-social skills compared with nonexposed children. At 54 months of age, pandemic-exposed children had significantly higher vocabulary, visual memory, and overall cognitive performance compared with nonexposed children."

 

More parental time/attention?

Can't see his profile as I'm not logged in but I believe he also worked for BNZ as a database administrator.

I am guessing that employment situation will also rapidly be changed.

The Stuff article says "He faces one charge of dishonestly accessing Te Whatu Ora databases".
IANAL, but think this might be a precedent setting case as I'm not aware that an employee who has legitimate access to the system has been charged with this offence before. I'd love to hear to the contrary.

 

In my former existence, I had discussions with actual lawyers who said that the chances of successful prosecution might depend on exactly how well the organisation's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) was worded, and what if any legally admissible evidence there was that the employee had actually been properly made aware of the AUP and its contents, and had signed up to / formally assented to the AUP.
They were at the time advising me on drafting such an AUP, so they did have an axe to grind.

 

Might be popcorn time

ROTFLMAO

 

"Young will reappear at 2:15pm when a decision will be made on whether he gets bail.

 

He yelled "freedom" as he left the courtroom."

 

 

 

The charge carries a maximum 7 years in prison

Love to see him spend the entire time there, although I realise it's probably not likely.
