I'm not a fan of most Labour policies, and not a fan of Jacinda in general, but her and the govt handling of this situation has been decisive and with the benefit of comparison to overseas situations it has been successful so far.
Suggesting that you would want them to do the LEGAL thing INSTEAD OF the RIGHT thing indicates you truly don't understand the unprecedented nature of the situation.
Would you rather stick to 100kmh on the open road if you were transporting a critically injured friend to hospital? Would you break a law to save a life?
Get off your high horse, accept these are unprecedented times requiring unprecedented actions, and that some of those require decisive leadership without the benefit of oversight from the 'pre-times'.
Your attitude sounds like the people in the US protesting that they have had to stay at home too long and want their hairdressers to re-open NOW!
