Did you watch David Seymour’s speech in Parliament on Tuesday?
It’s been viewed more than 35,000 times and had Mike Hosking and Peter Williams raving.
Here it is in case you missed it.
David forensically examined the many failures of the Government’s Covid-19 response and explained ACT’s ‘Wellbeing Approach’ to fighting the virus.
A Wellbeing Approach would consider all of the costs of Covid-19 in a world where we can’t guarantee against outbreaks.
Being free of Covid-19 is just one dimension. We also need to consider students’ life-defining exams, the mental health of small business owners, missed elective surgeries, families who can’t travel for funerals, the financial costs (a Level 3 lockdown in Auckland costs $440 million a week), and the uncertainty.
In short, we need to ask how elimination can be made affordable.
ACT will be launching its Wellbeing Approach to Covid-19 very soon. Can you help us tell New Zealanders about it? <[link removed]>Each dollar is another voter we can reach.
