Her government's largely successful response to COVID-19 is what won them the election.
That is the crux of the matter ... in the last opinion poll before Covid hit her party was trailing 46% to 41% ... and she was looking at getting voted out of office ... after Covid it all changed and Labour went up to 60% and settled at the election with 49% ... meanwhile the opposition National party imploded with 3 leaders in the space of 3 months and went from 46% to just 27% at the election
Domestically her government has been a shambolic failure with a litany of broken/fulfilled promises and scandals galore yet due to Covid gets rewarded with majority government now
Ironically after 3 weeks of no local Covid cases, a day after the election it is announced a new Covid case reported in the community
-8 ( +7 / -15 )
8.7% positive rate
One of the worst in the world
France is reporting 5% positive rate
Heaven knows what the "real" number is ....
7 ( +18 / -11 )
88 new cases in Tokyo today ... but but but ... 1014 tests
8.7% positive rate
Would like to see Tokyo do a test level like what Australian cities (Sydney,Melbourne) have done, 20,000 a day the normal
2 ( +5 / -3 )
4.2% positive rate is not good
8 ( +11 / -3 )
Has she officially withdrawn her US citizenship yet?
-1 ( +3 / -4 )
A 3% positive test rate is still pretty poor compared to world standards
0 ( +7 / -7 )
Will only drive more voters to Trump
-1 ( +7 / -8 )
Premier Andrews created this mess ... his government employed untrained security guards in charge of overseas returning travellers ... untrained security guards who then traded sexual favours to allow travellers to leave the hotel illegally... and 49 security guards then contracted the virus and then went home and spread it to their families and friends ... meanwhile in every other state the Australian Army was in charge of hotel security and surprise surprise ... no cases in any other state
1 ( +1 / -0 )
I'm offended by the name "Chicks"
6 ( +15 / -9 )
Sounds like a Freak Show

The two examples you post, the Australian Rules Final .... tickets were free and with the T20 final they were giving tickets away left, right and centre also
FIFA won't do that
3 ( +3 / -0 )
China should be stripped of all these events as punishment for unleashing Covid on the planet
5 ( +11 / -6 )
So does this mean Japan can now post their real Covid infection numbers?
9 ( +10 / -1 )
