What wimps are the authorities in Auckland

The Council,police and RS&A have canceled 58 Anzac services in Auckland because of the Christchurch terrorist attack.

Looks like they are scared there might be a reprisal attack. What happened to the 'we should carry on as usual' message. Our fallen diggers would turn in their graves.

Stuff the authorities, I reckon the locals should turn up at the regular time at the local memorials and hold their own services. There is no need for all the hoopla, everyone knows the ODE and the Lords prayer. The fact that people turn up for the service is the most important thing.

I hope the ordinary folk in Auckland go it alone and hold their own services

NZ has been lead brilliantly after this mass murder
No Reason to think that has changed
What if an insane terrorist has been waiting for a reason to murder
Just maybe a bomb,in such a crowd,would murder many
ANZAC will not suffer because of this move, people are not backing down
NZ has a government that cares about its people

Given the appalling virtue signalling and cultural appropriation of the New Zealand Prime Minister of late, this is not surprising. Closer to home, in neo-communist Victoria, there is talk of getting rid of the Lord's Prayer in parliament to suck up to foreign religions and cultures that have been forced on us by multiculturalism, mass immigration, and other bullshiteisms. It's all about paving the way for the end of the West.

Belly,
This is not about New Zealand's PM or her actions after the terrorist shooting in Christchurch.

Its about the wimping of the Auckland authorities in relation to Anzac memorial services. I have the highest regard for NZ defense forces past and present and for the fortitude of NZ people generally.

But the actions of the Auckland council, police and R&SA is nothing short of giving in to terrorists. Terrorists act as they do to frighten people so they will comply with terrorist wants. No other town has reduced their services for Anzac day.

I suggest that safety of citizens was not the motive for reducing the number of services, It is weakness on the part of the city officials. They are running scared as there is no actual threat. Nothing has changed and an attack could come anywhere, any time.

If we are concerned about safety then we should take action to reduce the number of likely muslim extreme persons in our society.

New Zealand Prime Minister - Jacinda Ardern has
confirmed that the Duke of Cambridge will be
in Auckland for ANZAC Day and that she will travel
with him to Christchurch the following Day.

ANZAC services have been reduced in New Zealand.
The reduced number makes it easier for police to
maintain safety. Only the areas that police said
were hard to monitor were reduced. This amounted
to approximately from 58 down to 26. There still be
10 dawn services and 16 civic services across
Auckland.

Also according to the
New Zealand Foreign Affairs and Trade (Manatu Aorere)
Department - there will be ANZAC Day Services at all
of their embassies overseas - from Beijing in China,
to Moscow in Russia. Anzac day will be celebrated by
New Zealand - where it is a national holiday - and that
is not about to change.

Now to the topic of the Lord's Prayer and the Victorian
Parliament?

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has flagged opening
Parliament with a multi-faith ceremony instead of the
Lord's Prayer. This came about due to pressure from
the diverse Member of Parliament. The religions
observed by state MPs include - Christianity, Judaism,
Islam and Hinduism. At the start of every day the
Speaker and the President lead the Lord's Prayer in
the Upper and Lower House.

The Premier has said he was open to the idea IF it had
widespread support and would be welcoming of other
religions.

People have been calling for change and the state
government has referred this matter to the procedure
committee for review.

Even though the Premier has stated that it was also
important to conserve some traditions
