Relatively new entrant to Parliament, former Unilever and Air NZ boss Christopher Luxon has landed the job as leader of the National Party. The situation vacant sign when up last week when Judith Collins was tossed out of the job after a no confidence vote, which was called when she demoted Simon Bridges over inappropriate comments he made several years ago. Bridges was also vying for the leadership but bowed out of the race only a few hours before Tuesday's caucus meeting. Christopher Luxon talks to Lisa Owen.

Whangārei Mayor Sheryl Mai has told Checkpoint the red level of the traffic light system is not like alert level 2. "It's quite different... We've been in a privileged position of level two, and looking at the changes that the traffic light system brings, a lot of it is around restricting numbers into various events and that has definitely changed for us." She said it is "ridiculous" to think Northland could be orange by Christmas. But Mai does have hope the region could move to orange at mid-January. "I think when the vaccine pass requirement really comes into effect, and people seeing the restrictions that it creates on their lifestyle... maybe that will take them over the edge and get them to a vaccination queue. And that's where we want them."
Former National MP and Minister Dr Jonathan Coleman knows what it's like to take a tilt for at the leadership. He threw his hat in the ring in 2016 after John Key announced he was resigning. Back then he was up against Bill English, who eventually got the job, but also Judith Collins. On Thursday Collins was gone by lunchtime after a vote of no confidence by the National caucus. Things came to a head when out of the blue she demoted Simon Bridges, stripping him of his portfolios for an innappropriate comment he made in front of another National party MP about five years ago. Jonathan Coleman talks to Lisa Owen.

by Samira Shackle • A massive port project—part of China's Belt and Road Initiative—is more military base than port, further disenfranchising people in a region with a history of political tension and violence. The original story, along with photos, can be found on hakaimagazine.com.
Businesses will throw open their doors to customers under the new traffic light framework next Friday, but as the nuts and bolts are being worked through there seem to be more questions than answers. The government has confirmed today the verifier app businesses can use will be optional - which means the printed, paper versions could be widely used, without necessarily having it checked against ID. Emma Hatton reports.
The St Peter's Cambridge school chair has told Checkpoint the police are investigating historical abuse against former students. An investigation launched in 2019 at the prominent Waikato boarding school has found 19 individual cases of historical abuse between 1936 and 1981 relating to eight former staff members. Some of the staff have since died, but police are looking at some cases involving staff who are still alive. John Macaskill-Smith says the school is focusing on apologising to former students and encouraging them to come forward if they were abused.
Exporters fear that MIQ will still be here well into the first quarter of next year after a pilot booking scheme for businesses has been extended into February. Following an initial trial, 25 managed isolation spots a month are being ring fenced for businesses that need to travel overseas to maintain and grow their market. Now NZ Trade and Enterprise has written to business laying out next year booking schedule for managed isolation. Export NZ Executive Director Catherine Beard discusses the details with Lisa Owen.
Police say a 70-year old Auckland woman missing for 12 days was found alone, inside an address, extremely dehydrated. They don't believe foul play was involved in Cindy Li's disappearance, and say she's now in a critical condition in ICU. It has sent shockwaves through her Sandringham community. Our reporter Katie Doyle has been speaking to residents.
Checkpoint can reveal multiple investigations are underway into allegations of sexual assaults at Waikeria Prison and claims a Corrections Officer failed to report serious complaints from inmates. Two prisoners say they were attacked multiple times by other inmates at the men's jail near Te Awamutu in Waikato. Amnesty International executive director Meg de Ronde told Checkpoint she is horrified by the allegations, “but sadly I'm not surprised”.
Bay of Plenty iwi Te Whānau a Apanui spokesperson and Ōpōtiki District Councillor Louis Rapihana told Checkpoint the iwi's request for holiday visitors to stay away was partly prompted by local businesses. "Surprisingly it was the local businesses who approached us first as the iwi response unit, in regards to wanting to put best practices in place for them. "The last thing they would want is for us to go into either a level 4 lockdown or red lockdown." He said they are expecting a mixture of responses. Rapihana said there will be checks on campers, but assured there "won't be any friction".
Three months into Auckland's lockdown, businesses finally got a visit from Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Grant Robertson. Heart of the City chief executive Viv Beck told Checkpoint she thinks Robertson got a good sense of the Auckland business sector's experiences and challenges through lockdown. "I think it was a constructive discussion." Robertson met with Auckland CBD representatives from retail, hospitality, tourism and accommodation.

Despite James suffering through COVID, the power trio stays intact over the international break to take a look at a breakdown of goals for and against in various scenarios. They debate to what extent the dramatic differences in open play vs. set piece performance can be attributed to the summer window, injuries, change in system, poor player utilization, and even individual maturity and challenges. The ATP boys also uncover some interesting facts and figures about year over year performance including deeper analysis of both Allan and Ben Godfrey. Is Allan better suited to a 3-man midfield? Did the fan base overrate Ben Godfrey last year? Tune in to find out! LINKS: https://linktr.ee/usatoffeepod Intro: Steve Barkwill Production: James Harper Outro: Kenboib

Unvaccinated health workers may have worked their last day - with the Covid vaccine mandate coming into effect at midnight. It's as the government announces a booster scheme will start on November 29 for over 18s - with people able to get a third dose six months after their second. Association of Salaried Medical Specialists chief executive Sarah Dalton told Checkpoint the announcement of Pfizer Covid-19 booster shots from the end of November is "brilliant" but just in time.
This week, PAR continues its coverage of the overt abuses of police power by examining new data that shows just how dangerous—and even deadly—systematic over-policing can be. PAR hosts Taya Graham and Stephen Janis break down several cases that show how police use pretextual car stops to expand their power, challenge the constitutional rights of citizens, and expand the reach of the country's law-enforcement-industrial complex.Post Production: Adam ColeyHelp us continue producing Police Accountability Report by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer: Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-parSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-parGet Police Accountability Report updates: https://therealnews.com/pod-up-parLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

A health expert wants Air New Zealand to go a step further and implement a no jab, no fly rule domestically. The airline's announced travellers who are 12 and over will need to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative Covid test to board internal flights from mid-December. As Samantha Gee reports, most are welcoming it, but some are worried it could lead to Covid spread.

The government could be footing a $200 million bill if Covid kills the summer festival season. The government has announced a safety net for the sector, underwriting 90 percent of unrecoverable costs if events have to be canned or postponed due to Covid and alert level restrictions. But terms and conditions apply. To qualify for "taxpayer insurance", events need to be ticketed, have an audience of at least 5000, use vaccination certificates and be scheduled between December 17 and April 3. Minister for Economic and Regional Development and Tourism Stuart Nash told Checkpoint the event sector needed certainty.
Auckland will move to level 3 step 2 restrictions on November 10. It means from Wednesday restrictions will ease somewhat, allowing retail to open with social distancing, and groups of up to 25 people to gather outdoors. Jacinda Ardern says the greater freedoms are possible due to Auckland's high vaccination rates. The Prime Minister has also signalled the Auckland region is highly likely to end its level 3 lockdown and move to the new traffic light protection framework. Auckland hospitality venues can now prepare to be open in December. At the red traffic light, venues using the vaccine passport can host 100 people, seated and separated. Tricky Hartley owns The Conservatory on Auckland's Waterfront. He talks to Lisa Owen.
The Black Caps have stormed their way into the semis at the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. The New Zealand side beat an in-form Afghanistan in their final group game today to book a place in the next round. They'll face an injury-hit England in the semis and head into the match with plenty of confidence. Felicity Reid reports.
Chief executive of Swimtastic Swim School Mark Bone told Checkpoint the last minute rule change to exclude swimming pools from being able to open under level 3 step 2 has been very confusing. “CDC, the world-leading authority on infectious diseases and the World Health Organisation, have made it clear that swimming pools are very, very safe. Chlorine doesn't make Covid active. “Our own Ministry of Health is ignoring that. That was originally recognised, then out of the blue they suddenly changed it.” He said the bizarre thing is when he looks at the government's Covid-19 website, under sport and recreation it still says “gyms, swimming pools and skate parks can open". “Constantly they're giving us false information and there's no consistency. That's the frustration.”
Deputy PM Grant Robertson signalled on Checkpoint that the government is not looking for a strict 90 percent target for Auckland to move out of level 3 to the new protection system. "We said all along that we weren't going to hold everybody up for the sake of a DHB being at 88 or 89 percent. "We've always had between the 29th [November] in the programme as a check-in and we want to be pragmatic and reasonable about it. "We know that people now understand the importance of getting the second dose, we're going to be working doubly hard to make sure that everybody over the next three weeks … comes forward." He said Cabinet will have a good idea of how numbers are trending by November 29.

Director of the University of Auckland's Centre for Supply Chain Management Tava Olsen told Checkpoint a system for Auckland travellers to cross the border in the summer holidays would be "doable" if government got to work on it right now, but it would be very difficult.
A state of emergency has been declared in Gisborne as heavy rain pounds the region. Flooding has closed several roads and the sewer system is under pressure. Some residents of Sponge Bay have self-evacuated as flood waters rise, and others are being told to get ready to leave. “We are not evacuating people at this stage, it's all voluntary,” Gisborne Mayor Rehette Stoltz told Checkpoint. Looking at the Taruheru river out the window, she said: “It is rough, it is brown, it is really going hard and it's still pouring.”
National's Covid-19 spokesperson Chris Bishop told Checkpoint he thinks the potential time allocation for Aucklanders to leave the region in holidays is "the stupidest idea I've ever heard". “MIQ is bad enough, with the lottery of human misery for Kiwis to come home to their own country. The idea that Aucklanders will be allocated by the government a week away or something, when I first saw it on Twitter... I actually had to reread it about three times. I couldn't believe it. “Our view is that get get to 85 percent, obviously as high as possible, but 85 percent, drop the restrictions, allow people to have a bit of freedom for Christmas. “Obviously we would say right now vaccinated Aucklanders should be able to leave the Auckland prison that they've erected around Auckland. “We don't have vaccines certificates ready to go yet which is just unbelievable.
As Aucklanders watch the vaccination rate tick up towards easing restrictions, jabs of another kind are also on offer in the locked down city: Botox. The cosmetic injections are available under level 3, while other close contact businesses like hairdressers and retailers being unable to operate. Doctor Sarah Hart from the NZ Society of Cosmetic Medicine told Checkpoint they fit the bill to be operating.
Covid Minister Chris Hipkins told Checkpoint the government is considering the option that Aucklanders have an allocated time slot to leave the region over the summer holidays. The measure would reduce the risk of queues of traffic at the boundary checkpoints, as vaccination certificates are checked. Hipkins also said an announcement on primary schools returning will be made on Monday or Tuesday next week. “We've foreshadowed that we're considering potential reopening of primary schools on a limited basis from the 15th, but we've not made a final decision on that at this point. “I met with the Auckland primary principals leaders earlier today to get their feedback on how they're feeling about that. Fair to say they shared a mixed range of views about both the feasibility of having limited numbers back. “We'll discuss it again at Cabinet on Monday, then I think we'll provide some clearer guidance at that point... Certainly early next week, Monday or Tuesday.”
National deputy leader Dr Shane Reti was in Opononi when the announcement was made for the Far North to move into level 3 restrictions. He told Checkpoint "it will be a struggle" for the region to get to 90 percent vaccinated. "If we look at the baseline - those children under two where the parents have said 'do not vaccinate them' and have taken them off the register - if we use that as a proxy for what they might want for themselves... I suspect it's about 15 percent." Reti does not think 90 percent is impossible but said it will be hard. "As we weigh things up just remember, an hour ago all through Northland all the communities were at the pub watching the Melbourne Cup." He said it was crowded at the Opononi Pub where he was.
Epidemiologist Professor Rod Jackson told Checkpoint the Far North lockdown “is the model of what we're going to see over the next six months. It's going to be localised lockdowns.” “We knew this was going to happen I think, and it's really sad it's happened in Northland.” He said the local lockdown may not go far enough. “We'll find out in the next few days I guess... Covid crosses boundaries. “I think we're going to see more and more local lockdowns to try and keep the virus suppressed.”
Far North District Mayor John Carter told Checkpoint the level 3 lockdown for the top of Northland is "disappointing but it's the right decision." "We need to keep people safe... We also need them to be tested if they're unwell and most importantly please go and get vaccinated. "That's the reason why we have to do this, because we need to get the vaccination level up."
