It's not the trade issue, that is very one sided, but the recognition of the problem that is the main point.

The more that stand up to China, much like Oz, the more difficult it will be for China to coerce others.
Spot on.

We were having some NSW friends coming up here for new year, with all the confusion that has been rife about covid tests/who pays/hot spots my wife rang a poly to try and get some clarification, specifically on hot spots, it would appear that when the border opens all of NSW & VIC will be regarded as hot spots, based on that, anyone entering from both of those States would need to be tested, OK no actual cost but.

She was told communication is closed on the subject, so, plan change, we are going to NSW.

Fairdinkum plucka, let's move on, the rest of the country is.

Maybe this is more about overloaded hospitals and ramping, even though we don't have a pandemic here, YET. She has made her bed, now she must lay in it!
She is keeping Queenslanders safe :rolleyes:. We are living here with covid ok. Eight weeks ago we were in lockdown with no cases. Now we are open with cases floating around. The difference being (at this stage) the high vax rate.

As you no doubt know you will have to get tested before you return home. No one here (NSW) knows how that is going to be accomplished yet? Testing clinics are for those with symptoms only. So you may have to visit a GP to get a referral to a pathology clinic? Then wait for a negative result. Who knows what happens if it comes back positive.

We are trying to jump through the same hoops to have the mother in law here from QLD for Xmas. I will keep you updated when we know. Pluckachook is talking about a border bubble that might negate the need for test. Handy for us as we border onto QLD but no good if you travel further south. And as she stated pending what happens in Byron re the localised lockdown of a back packers.

Ed Zackery, when she spoke of border bubble today and linking wifes convo with the poly and being told conversations and info are closed, makes one become concerned.

Rats fleeing a sinking ship perhaps? lol

In the last 2 days, 5 Victorian labor MP's have either resigned or said they will not contest the next election.

That's strange??

I wonder what could be happening??

Election poll put DA in a landslide victory.
??? Yet MP's are resigning ???

Anybody know why??

And I bet the funniest thing that will come out of the whole load of whank is that it is more than likely a photoshop job...

I bet nothing was ever submitted in Myrtleford, but that won't stop fools thinking it is real.

Here's an interesting read of another (real) submission to the Electoral Matters Committee during a Vic election.

What's going on down there Darcy, do you have a farm where you purposely inbreed these idiots?

https://www.parliament.vic.gov.au/i...Election/Submissions/No_28_Gerard_Donohue.pdf

There are a whole slew of charges against a great many pollies that have almost the exact wording of dumma's BS.

Well, seems things have progressed or maybe a bit more trickery?

We have a court date file number, 2021-00871 on 17/12/21.

Off to the shops for MORE popcorn....

And another roll of tinfoil.

Can someone please link me to the court schedule or something to do with that case? I've tried Googling and searching Gov/Court sites and the best I can get is a viral share of something that provides nothing as it doesn't even appear in the court databases

Moving right along. I'm a centrist who leans very slightly to the right, I know I have defended Plucka in the past for the way her Govt handled the original covid threat, but that wasn't a political opinion, it was reality. But, in recent months this endless uncertainty is crazy, one really starts to think they are keeping us like this because when covid does hit us, and it will, our hospital system will collapse, we have ambulances ramping outside of hospitals for hours right now without covid. They have done a shocking job on our health system over the years.

I'll be honest, I really don't give a rats bum about unvaccinated people, they made a choice, live with it and stop complaining. My wife and I are double vaccinated we already have a booking for our booster, if we do get covid we know it will be mild as we don't have any really life threatening underlying issues, we both still wear masks whenever we are among people where social distancing isn't possible. Our interstate friends are double dosed so they should be able to visit us and vice versa. Come Dec 17 we should open up and stay open no matter what 'stage' we are at, travel in all directions a reality.

My 2 cents worth.

I think the majority of the covid issues are being exacerbated because the premiers of each state have had a taste of power and don't want to let it go. I have family around the Gold Coast (both sides of the border) and the hoops they have to jump through to cross the border legally are a joke, but spend a few hours at Coolangatta and there are hundreds of people walking across the border in both directions, yet if you drive over the border your going to spread covid like it's the plague. The federal government should take the power off the premiers, open the country and let Australians get back to their lives.
