My letter publish in Herald this morning.

I am heartily sick of John Carter's rant about faceless Wellington bureaucrats and the Northland lockdown.Throughout the pandemic Northland has shown one of the lowest uptake rates for vaccination - often over 10 percent less  than the national average. Northland is touted as an 'underserved community' when the reality is that it is an 'undermotivated community'. If Mr Carter's bailiwick needs a free sausage and cuppa to get the jab then they fall into the category 'Failed NZers who let us down in a national emergency'.
