What a boon for the Pharma Corporations.

The government says "80% of the population use this company's product or else nobody is leaving the country"

Who is in charge of Australia?

The voters or Big Pharma's lobby?

What a boon for the Pharma Corporations.

The government says "80% of the population use this company's product or else nobody is leaving the country"

Who is in charge of Australia?

The voters or Big Pharma's lobby?

Morrison has probably been promised a cushy lobbying job with a pharma company when he leaves parliament as a reward for pushing the product.

People's patience with these lockdowns and border closures fades by the day, and their skepticism is rising as they discover that the government won't grant them their freedoms back even if they have been vaccinated. Australia is now looking at mid-2022 before international borders reopen, but I think that's a longshot given how frequently the federal and state governments shift the goalposts.

And to get to 80%, that would mean vaccinating children, who are not vulnerable to this virus and unlikely to spread it, and are at far higher risk of damage from the vaccine than they are from the virus. It would also likely mean that the government will not allow off-label use of the anti-viral drugs that are showing excellent success in other countries, as providing people with effective, cheap and safe treatments and protections will reduce the virus fear factor necessary to drive the vaccine push.

And we can't have that.

Let them try that and force people in the US.

Sais an honest politician of a rare breed whilst he knows that this target will be never reached.

Otherwise he would have never set it this high.

I have faith that the Australian people will resist this globalist tyranny and efforts to control their bodies.

The seventy and eighty percent numbers he is goalposting are so fanciful that they'll never happen.

They happened in Israel. Easily achievable.

Oh yeah of little faith. My guess is that Australians aren't so thick as to not get vaccinated.

Some people out there will resist. But what this announcement means, that they will be rightfully blamed for holding Australia back. Put the blame where it is deserved.
