Posted in: Australian police put a 90-day limit on draconian virus measures in NSW See in context

And just yesterday, the Queensland government approved a 3% pay rise for state public servants while businesses and private-sector workers all over the country are forced to shut down / out of work

Infuriating. Even without this payrise, govt employees for the most part are not sharing a the pain of other Aussies. Ive got a few public servant mates who are rather enjoying their "work" from home, on full pay and benefits. Top blokes so good luck to them...but a payrise right now is plain wrong!

Wonder what they'll be thinking when they see Xi's cronies swoop in to buy up the country for a song.

Considering a good portion of them on Bondi beach were foreign backpackers, they probably dont care too much. In fact, many are still partying on as we speak in the backpacker hostels of Bondi - despite all the pleas from the police not to.

So far, a reasonable job has been made by Aussie authorities in "flattening the curve". However last weeks ban on incoming foreigners (of whom Americans and Europeans were by far the greatest factor in introducing the virus) is having the biggest effect.

Good riddance, serial doper and cheat. Fitting way for Sun to end his drug-fuelled career, not on a podium.

Christmas Island is going to get crowded.

This group will be quarantined outside Darwin, not Christmas Island.

I hope they stay healthy and time passes quickly for them. The Christmas Island Quarantined have all tested negative and will begin returning home from today I believe.

Posted in: Japanese economy sinks amid fears about virus impact See in context

To make it very clear, this big drop in GDP had zero to do with Coronavirus and loss of tourists.

It had a lot to do with the tax hike and subsequent big drop in domestic demand.

Foreigners need not apply...I'm guessing.

Considering Dominos Japan is (or was) Australian owned, thatd be harsh!

Posted in: Doubts raised over plans to expand Six Nations tournament See in context

Why not have Japan join the Southern Hemisphere Rugby Championship, replacing the Springboks? Logistically easier and a better fit than them basing themselves in Europe, surely? You could even add a team from the Pacific Islands down the track. It all comes down to revenue I guess...

Geez, with family like that who needs enemies! Ridiculous that these two boys are being prosecuted, the amount of police resources and taxpayers money spent on investigating two kid's silly plan than likely would not have eventuated. Give them a caution.

2.1% of all respiratory and circulatory deaths were influenza associated.

"2.1% of all respiratory and circulatory deaths were influenza associated" does NOT inducate a mortality of 2.1% if one catches the flu virus. All it indicates is that 2.1 percent of respiratory and circulatory deaths were linked to the flu.

Statistics 101.

Posted in: Australia to help some citizens leave China, quarantine them on Christmas Island See in context

Off-shore like this suggests paranoia, Xenophobia, desperation and a publicity stunt by a government running out of ideas

Brilliant description of the current Conservative Australian government!

I hope these evacuees - IF they get all the final clearances - can eventually get home without illness.

Good luck to PM Ardern. She sure is a more inspiring and credible leader than the conservative buffoons and grubs across the ditch, led by that failed marketing man Scott Morriscum.

So hide whatever you've got as best you can and pretend you're just barely scraping by.

Well done Boks! Brilliant performance, fully deserved Champions. How good is the little scrum half De Klerk?! Player of the tournament IMO.

Where are all the posters who claimed the "Boks are boring"..."England will win easily"? Time to eat some humble pie fellas!

Posted in: England totally outplay All Blacks 19-7 to reach World Cup final See in context

Is there anyone in the room who knows how to do the Heimlich Manoeuvre?

All chokes aside, brilliant performance by England. I can remember perhaps two errors they made the whole game . They tore the Kiwis to shreds down the middle, humiliated their powder-puff forwards, and the Kiwis had nothing in reply.

There is no doubt about it : Eddie Jones is a genius and the best coach in Rugby Union. If the Australian Rugby Union had any sense and wasnt nearly bankrupt, theyd break the bank to get him home.

Well played England! Commiserations Kiwis.

Posted in: Australia's ruling coalition wins surprise third term See in context

Clive Palmer spent over 50 millions and at the end only helps Scomo wins. He himself gets nothing.

Oh, fat Clive will be getting something off the LNP down the track, put your house on it. You don't spend $50 mill on an election - after having held meetings and done preference deals with the government- for nothing.

As for Morrison, I wonder if he will bring more lumps of coal into parliament and proclaim "coal is the future"! He's a morally bankrupt grub, and it won't be long before people realise slick advertising slogans don't make for good government.

Posted in: Brunei introduces death by stoning for adultery, gay sex See in context

Many of the nations that joined hands with Brunei in that TPP are looking pretty toothless right now. Some of these nations claim to believe in “human rights” and “democracy” - Australia, NZ, Canada etc. Some of them may whisper little protests, but ultimately will all just look the other way and continue dealing with this disgusting regime. Money trumps human rights.

Boycott Brunei.

Nothing but a racist, shrivelled-up, hysterical old fascist. Canvassing election funds from foreigners ( the NRA) to wind back Australias WORKING gun laws is despicable.
