Tighter Controls – Really?

Some ‘expert’s’ call for tighter controls.  This raises a couple of issues straight from the textbooks.  

One suggestion has been to reduce the number of supermarkets,  The theory is to “Limit the point of contact with the enemy and bring overwhelming force to bear to overcome it.”  The raison d’etre being that fewer sites can be better cleaned and human interactions can be managed better.

There are of course flaws,   It brings together people to interact in larger groups at single sites.  An error in management at these sites promotes/enhances the risk of a super-spreader event organised by the government (note MIQ has if nothing else proven we are unable to manage the facilities and therefore the disease ) and it encourages MORE travel by More people around the Auckland area.

Which brings me to the main reason for this discourse.  Can someone help me redefine the word ‘Expert’ for the Aoteroan dictionary I am writing, as we clearly no longer speak English in this country. Note by way of an example I have used the English use of the word  ‘country’ that includes an extraneous ‘o’ as opposed to the Aoteroan dictionary where the ‘o’ is simply omitted.   

Best suggestions so far:


Traditional English Definition

a person who is very knowledgeable about or skillful in a particular area.

Proposed Aoteroan Definition

a person who appears to be very knowledgeable about or skillful in a particular area but in reality was left here when the people who are ACTUALLY very knowledgeable about or skillful in a particular area have left Aoteroa and sold there skills elsewhere
