    Coronavirus

    I seriously doubt that being PM is worth the money they're paying. Look at Scomo - working stupid hours, 7 days a week, can't go on holidays or the footy without some moron journalist making it a public issue. Have people complaining everytime you go anywhere. Do anything really good and people say thats expected, a minor stuff up and its a ton of brick dropped by people who have absolutely no idea whats going on. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. But you're missing the perfect opportunity to make yourself rich and famous without all that baggage. Just write an "expert opinion piece" (or do a podcast if thats your thing) about how the Governments have it all wrong and you know all the answers. Make sure you use all the click-bait buzz phrases. e.g. "Amazing", "You won't believe this", "80% of people don't know this" and "Game Changer" Then publish it, do a little bit of "advertising" by bulk sharing it using fake accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media outlets. And then sit back and wait for the requests for an interview from the Project, ACA, Sunrise and Today where you can rake in the appearance fees.

    Realistically its less than 2hrs drive from the virus hotspots of Sydney to Canberra. I know people who actually commute that regularly because the house prices (at the time) where significantly cheaper than Sydney and the their commute was about the same time..

    And your world-saving strategy is????

    If this is true, then all the department heads should lose their jobs. They should have already been planning for a Stage 4 shutdown the day Stage 3 was announced (because a Stage 3 plan should already have been finished)

    But lots of deaths. Remember we were reasonably isolated by distance in 1919. No superfast jets that could carry you and your virus across the world in 24 hours.

    Coronavirus

    The way I see it...today... Universally, Plan 'B' is hoping that a working vaccine arrives sooner than later. Or at least soon enough to prevent to total meltdown of society. To date, nobody seems to have come up with a working alternative strategy that allows normality of life without lots of deaths and avoiding lock down. As such, in a worse case scenario of the non-arrival of a working vaccine occur, it can only lead to the public admission that we're completely screwed regardless of what we do.

    Wait till someone works out that Tinder dates might be considered to be an "intimate relationship"

    So far I havn't seen anybody put forward an alternative strategy. Seen plenty of people criticising those that are making the decisions but none are coming up with a viable working alternative.

    One should always be suspicious of any opinion critical of a government decision that has the potential to cause a negative financial impact to the speaker. Its a bit like petrochemical companies having a opinion against renewable energy. Real easy to be critical, how about the good doctor stop outlining the problems (which blind freddy has already outlined numerous times) and come up with a workable solution.
  11. We cancelled our US/Canada trip sometime ago. best offer we got was $600 in credit for future travel and $200 refunded out of $1600. Chased it up this time last month and got an automated BS email said that there was a 12-14 week wait for refunds. 🤬 My guess is that they'll be bankrupt before we see any money.
  12. That might have been what originally happened but it still doesn't rebut my comment. No using every tool available is like a triathlete forgetting to take their cycling shoes. Yeah you'll get there (maybe) but it'll be a hell of a lot easier if you had them.
  13. Might be one explanation why the virus got out of control down there. The tracers ignored a potential source of information and missed contacts.
  14. So it would be OK for Roxii to barricade the road to Kurnell to keep the virus out? I doubt the police would let him do it for any length of time.

    Gotta love it. You can get alcohol and lotto tickets but you can't buy a tin of paint so you can do something slightly more productive than binge watching all the shows you binge watched the first time round.

    Expecting a Government to do something sensible before they actually have to do it. Interesting concept. I like it. Let me know if it ever happens.
  17. Simple question. When is it legal to blockade roads? If you happen to be a white protester and you glue yourself to the road, thats deemed illegal. If you an indigenous or Traditional owner, and you park your car across the road, it appears to be legal. The Story No report of protesters getting dragged off the road, being fined and/or locked up. Not sure I quite understand "equality" in this situation.

    No worries. We all use the Gateway anyway.
  19. Scary indeed. But not the first time a virus has taken out a very fit athlete. Thinking back, one thinks of V-Tach that hit Greg Welsh many years ago that he attributed to training while he had a virus. But stories like this have been around for a little while now. Multiple organs failure, Blood clots on multiple organs, scarred lungs, and now myocarditis have all been reported in the mainstream press. Considering that the full list of long term impacts of the virus are still virtually unknown, We may find over time that the number of deaths directly attributable to the virus will be surpassed by the number of deaths caused by ongoing complications from the virus. Here's hoping that all you die-hard trainers are sensible about what you do now.

    No. Bedt game of the year by thrm. Boyd at the back seems to have made a difference. Now if Milford could get injured they might win a game.

    Hey the AFL is the best thing on TV at the moment. Far better than watching the Broncos fall apart in the last 20 minutes .... again. One can only cry into ones rum so many times before the alcohol content becomes too diluted to be worth drinking.
  22. The same crap he''s be spouting for 5 years. Fake News, conspiracies, Facists etc etc etc. "Trump Uses Mount Rushmore Speech to Deliver Divisive Culture War Message" - NY Times Link "The purpose was to stoke the culture wars and mobilize angry white voters. Fortunately, it may not actually work" - The Guardian Link "He condemned those who targeted statues as "angry mobs" trying to deface "our most sacred memorials". The president, who has been heavily criticised for his handling of the US coronavirus pandemic, made little reference to the disease that has now claimed almost 130,000 American lives. - Both from the BBC Link "Keystone, South Dakota (CNN)President Donald Trump on Friday made an impassioned appeal to his base while in the shadow of Mount Rushmore instead of striking a unifying tone, railing against what he called a "merciless campaign" by his political foes to erase history by removing monuments some say are symbols of racial oppression." - CNN Link and also from CNN The 28 most outrageous lines from Donald Trumps Mount Rushmore Speech Link
  23. From memory, it was reported that it was a same old, same old speech

    Its obvious to everybody that elimination is no longer an option and suppression is an unrealistic and unattainable goal. Whether they have a Plan Z is unknown but is equally obvious that just doing what we've done before isn't going to get us to either scenario.

    I get all my Covid-19 information from that bastion of knowledge known as Transitions. There some really knowledgeable people there who know all kinds of stuff.
