And now the Herald pubishes a story with this flamebait headline "Isolation hotel absconder blasts compassionate exemption system"...
The mother of a family charged with absconding from a Hamilton isolation hotel has lashed out at the heartless compassionate exemption system - and insists she posed no health risk to anyone.
The mother took to social media overnight to criticise the process that refused her family to right to say goodbye to the children's father after they travelled from Brisbane.
She said she had undergone another Covid test since being reacptured (sic) and it was negative.
First the headline. Then "since being recaptured", which makes it sound like she was captured in the first place, like a fugitive when in fact she was in isolation.
They knew the rules coming into the country, so this family deserves nothing at this point.
