Convoy 2022 NZ set for another big day, huge numbers in Picton

The Convoy 2022 NZ protest is set for another big day Saturday, on both islands.

Overnight, House Speaker Trevor Mallard kept the water sprinklers on, wasting untold litres of water during a period of Level 2 water restrictions in Wellington, in which residents are banned from using water sprinklers on their gardens.

The sprinklers had no effect, as protesters devised Kiwi ‘number 8 wire’ solutions to snuff out Mallard’s wasteful and pointless tactic.

Updates to follow.

Note: an earlier version of this article contained a video which DTNZ mistakenly reported as one of Picton.

  1. Protests need to start at Council offices around the country as well….many councils are supporting these mandates – they are part of the problem as well….

    Its not very easy to get to Wellington. If we expand the protests more people can get involved. If the protests is still going on in Wellington – Ill be looking to get up their in two weeks – but I could do a couple of days a week if we had protests in Christchurch even in Selwyn….

  2. Save some of that plastic hose for later. Shove it up Mallard’s kootie and give the bugger an enema. Clean the krappe out of him. Do him good.

  3. Term limits for politicians. Wellington City Council needs to take action against Mallard in regard to the abuse of water use on that lawn. The problem is that Parliamentary Services would pay the bill, not Mallard. Over the years if we looked at what Mallard has achieved on a cost/benefit basis and acknowledge he’s the Speaker now, its evident we need to set our expectations so much higher for what we’re paying these people.
