“Let's stop criticizing our banks!”

More than ten years after the subprime mortgage crisis, all the light has not been shed, and yet the idea of ​​the guilt of the banks has taken hold firmly in people's minds.

New Zealand Prime Minister sacked for coffee

No exceptions ... New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was sacked from a coffee on Saturday May 16 because he had already reached maximum capacity, reports the New Zealand Herald. The country has just relaxed the confinement rules by introducing strict measures such as the rule of physical distance in shops, restaurants and cafes. Jacinda Ardern and her partner Clarke Gayford tried to sit at Olive's, a cafe located in Wellington, the country's capital. The couple were first made to turn around because the establishment had reached the maximum number of authorized customers before finally finding a seat.

On Twitter, the New Zealand Prime Minister's companion confirmed the anecdote. "I have to take responsibility for it, I didn't organize myself and I didn't reserve anything. It was very nice of them to chase us when a place became available. Service A +", he said. he replied to a surfer.




The restaurant owner told the New Zealand Herald that the couple were caught soon after being turned away, as soon as a table was vacated. A subject that seems to have amused the restaurateur after having to deal with the "drama and stress" of the pandemic. "She had a delicious brunch and left half an hour later. She was charming with all the staff ... She was treated like a normal customer," he added to the columns of the daily.

New Zealand began phase 2 of its deconfinement on Thursday. Companies are allowed to reopen as long as they "can do it safely". Respect for physical distance must be implemented in schools, restaurants, gymnasiums and other workplaces. And as in France, gatherings must not exceed 10 people.
