    Haven’t seen a skinhead gang since the ’90’s in Melbourne. The fad died out long ago, think it reached it zenith with Romper Stomper. When was the last time they actually were under the clocks at Flinders st? I’d be more worried about being car jacked by gangs of no description in the burbs than those pesky right wingers…

  5. Dr Faustus

    Dictator Dan said that if a business is unable to transition to a ‘work from home’ scenario, then “the work just won’t get done”.

    You can bet the house that the newly enriched Vic Public Service will transition seamlessly to working from home. The ‘work’, whatever that is, still won’t get done.

    Before you know it they’ll be digging escape tunnels under the Murray River. Time for the searchlights and dogs,. Woof woof.

    Elements of the Victoria Dog Squad are already active on the border along with other mobile patrols and (apparently) utilising drones looking for illegal crossing by small boat.

    “We are all in this together” file

    ALPBC reports one new China virus case in Queensland:
    The positive case was a returned traveller who recently returned from overseas and flew to Maroochydore from Sydney on Friday with Jetstar.”

    Flew into Sydney. Did not quarantine in a hotel. Flew on to Queensland. Did not quarantine in a hotel
    How so?
    Because, like Kerry Stokes and Dannii Minogue, special. A consular official. In government eyes, certain public servants don’t get China virus and cannot spread it and don’t have to conform the rules for plebs (because special).

  15. Cassie of Sydney

    “But I do know for sure that Bolt still respects Dan for “fighting like hell to stop this virus””

    The problem with Bolt is that he craves being liked by his enemies.

    Here’s some shit from the H-S

    Among the covidiots were:
    • A man who travelled from Thornbury to Werribee to get a haircut from his favourite barber;
    • A man who travelled from Bentleigh East to Sunbury for his favourite takeaway; and
    • A man who travelled from Melbourne to Ballarat twice to get some fresh air.

    What poisonous little scolds these germalists are (thanks Cassie).

    Any verification of these “incidents”? Any evidence that could stand up in court (and, yes, I know what you might be thinking about Vic courts)?

  18. Bruce of Newcastle

    Mitch – He was having a fine time!

    Sometimes the young Cafe Bruce magpies will play with a stick or a leaf, but they’re about the only resident species with the intelligence to do that.

    I entertained a couple families today who emerged from a house whilst I was walking past after lunch. Adults, kids and dogs off for a walk themselves.

    After a while they noticed that magpies kept landing in front of the guy with the hat. It became a bit of fun. 😀

    We parted company as they went off down to the shore of the lake and I continued back to the Cafe.

    Anybody would be naturally very, very upset at any suggestion that they were Faulty.
    I know I would be and obviously you are too.

    To be accused of being Faulty is an outrageous below-the-belt slur.
    Again, really sorry if you drew that conclusion.

    TPG also own AAPT and Soul and TransACT

    I understood that TGP (TPG Telecom) has acquired Vodafone, although not sure how this was structured.

    The other factor to consider (slightly longer term) what happens when NBN inevitably goes bankrupt?
    Clearly NBN is never going to be a self-sustaining profitable entity capable of paying back the massive investment costs of their fiber networks, so what happens then?

    The Bankruptcy Act (Cwlth) only applies to individuals, not companies. Providing that the NBN Co can cover their operational costs, should be all sweet. The original capital cost is just sunk costs courtesy of the taxpayers of Australia,

    From that Hydroxy study I posted previously:

    Results: Six patients were asymptomatic, 22 had upper respiratory tract infection symptoms and eight had lower respiratory tract infection symptoms. Twenty cases were treated in this study and showed a significant reduction of the viral carriage at D6-post inclusion compared to controls, and much lower average carrying duration than reported in the litterature for untreated patients. Azithromycin added to hydroxychloroquine was significantly more efficient for virus elimination.

    Conclusion: Despite its small sample size, our survey shows that hydroxychloroquine treatment is significantly associated with viral load reduction/disappearance in COVID-19 patients and its effect is reinforced by azithromycin.

    There are now a plethora of studies confirming the efficacy of Hydroxy and 2 discredited studies opposing it. Yet it is banned in Australia.

    I thought so too, Bruce. And then the adolescent butcherbird started mucking around with a dead cordyline leaf. Kept it amused for some time. The kookaburras are just destructive. One decided to declare war on a pot if escherverias and decapitated them, then went on to destroy some aloes. Shooing made no difference, so I put up a palisade of satay skewers to stop it from landing.

    Mitch – He was having a fine time!

    Bruce I was feeding the magpies for a while and was intrigued by their different characters. The female was very aggressive, squawking at my feet and pinching the food out of my hand when I wasn’t watching. That annoyed me because one of the males had a damaged leg so I wanted to make sure he got a fair share but she kept pinching it. I had to feign throwing the meat to another place so she would run off there and then feed him. The three males were all a little different, with one reluctant to come too close and others happy to eat from my hand. They were obviously well fed from others around the neighborhood hence being prepared to eat out of my hand straight away.

  54. JC

    What about the market in high quality business connections where NBN simply isn’t good enough?

    Nice point, but just how big is that market? Also again, they’re competing against big players too.

    TPG owns PIPE Networks, giving them access to the direct Sydney to Guan fiber link PPC-1 … that’s not part of NBN and never will be. PIPE has also become the high-end component of the TPG portfolio selling fat links to the people who really happen to need that type of thing (not mum and dad watching movies).

    And how big is this market segment?

    TPG also installed a bunch of fiber-to-the-building links taking the initiative while NBN found it too difficult to negotiate with strata title management bodies. I believe TPG might still be somewhat ahead in that space.

    That’s a positive.

    TPG are slowly moving into mobile, although it isn’t quite their forte, but might be potential there. Of course, no one can beat Telstra quality in the Australian mobile space (if you want to pay Telstra rates) but there’s room for price competition. TPG will end up mucking around in the student and cheapskate market against Vodafone. Since NBN are not interested in mobile, this is not going to get too much government interference.

    That’s just picking up a few cents on the sidewalk, but nothing major.

    The other factor to consider (slightly longer term) what happens when NBN inevitably goes bankrupt?

    I don’t think it’s a question of NBN going bankrupt because the government won’t allow that to happen, The issue is when will the government take the hit on the books because the amount of capital invested will not be aware near the realizable value on sale. The sale, when it does happen will be an exchange of ownership and the market structure will not be allowed to change.

    Clearly NBN is never going to be a self-sustaining profitable entity capable of paying back the massive investment costs of their fiber networks, so what happens then? Each future government must choose between more subsidy, or ultimate write-off. Will it get sold off, who will buy???

    They can’t/ won’t write it off now because the government can’t take the additional hit. Things will just plod along.

    475bhp at the wheels! And bald tyres! ok, just rev to 5,500, hold revs steady, side step the clutch, press harder on the accelerator, immediately move left foot to the brake pedal to stop/slow froward movement, smoke will fill cabin and surrounds, listen for rear tyres to ‘pop’. For added adventure, turn steering wheel to left or right to initiate drift.

    Make sure you have spare tyres/wheels to fit so you can get home (or trailer home).

Grey butcherbirds are amazingly intelligent, so your story certainly fits my experience.

  79. Barry

    Under the Emergency Management Act 1986 (Victoria)
    If a state of disaster is declared (as it has been this evening), under (s 24)

    (b) if it appears to the Minister that compliance by a government agency with an Act or subordinate instrument, which prescribes the functions powers duties and responsibilities of that agency, would inhibit response to or recovery from the disaster, declare that the operation of the whole or any part of that Act or subordinate instrument is suspended;

    That is the Minister can direct any department to depart from ‘business as usual’ and can suspend any Act or regulation if compliance with that Act or regulation would inhibit the response to or recovery from the disaster. That is significant executive power vested in a single Minister.

    So we will now see whether the Victorian Constitution Act or the Human Rights Act are subject to this provision.

    Daniel Andrews’ state of disaster
    Charles Pier

    A curfew from 8.00 pm to 5.00 am. A limit on travelling more than five kilometres from your home. An effective ban on travelling out for shopping, banking, a trip to the post office — or the pharmacy — more than once a day. A state of disaster, not just emergency, across the whole of Victoria.

    These are just some of the measures announced by Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews just moments ago.

    They would have been unthinkable even when the first lockdowns occurred in March. A curfew. It’s hard to comprehend. A curfew beginning at 8.00 pm in a city known for its nightlife, club culture and after hours dining.

    We won’t hear further details about businesses and workplaces until tomorrow, the Victorian Premier says.

    However, school is over for the senior students and few others now attending classrooms.

    And this is where we really start to see the magnitude of the disaster.

    We have heard so much about tracking and tracing, of failures of isolation and quarantine. The vast amount of this has been government disaster, though there has also been a disastrous lack of personal responsibility that has compounded the problem.

    We know about the economic disaster (although can only guess how it will be compounded tomorrow). We know about the disaster for liberty. We know of the mental health disaster; of the humanitarian and sheer moral disaster of elderly people not only dying alone in their nursing home beds, but being left there for hours.

    But what about the disaster of final year school students who will now effectively lose at least two of the four most important terms of their educations. What about students at all year levels, who have suffered similarly.

    Are they going to be allowed the opportunity to repeat the wildly disrupted learning of this tragic year; learning disrupted not just by being forced away from school but by parents ill-equipped to act as surrogate teachers, the inadequacy of remote classes — and the all too obvious stress and anxiety students younger than mid-teens simply will have been unable to identify and express, compounding all their worries and fears.

    Victoria has become a place where the old die alone in fear, children struggle with unprecedented times and unfamiliar emotions in just the same state — and adults grapple with even heavier day to day burdens and demands as they face new fears over their lives, livelihoods and loved one.

    The state of disaster in Victoria is as much personal as economic — yet economic woes will only compound it.

    And forget all the big rail and road and infrastructure projects. This will be Daniel Andrews legacy: a state of disaster.

    As of 18July 2020, Credit Suisse has ceased coverage of TPG Telecom (TPM.AX) following the merger with Vodafone Hutchison Australia and its removal from the official list of the ASX with effect from close of trading on Tuesday, 14 July 2020.Effective with thistermination of coverage, our final rating (NEUTRAL), target price (A$7.80/share) and estimates for TPG Telecom are no longer in effect.

    So TPG merged with Vodafone Hutchison?

    Can you clarify.

    It is not just town professionals. In the farming game I am told I have to overpay staff by 20% or more to subsidise them to come here – what? I want someone here because they love it not because they think it is a trial.
     
    Hence my sponsoring a South African farmer and his family – someone who loves the land and is glad to be here. Visas applied for in early Jan, still waiting.

    Helen, I am offering you the Honorary Catallaction Club Membership 🙂 (which can of course, be rejected/declined/ignored ……. after all, we live in a free catallaxy world.)
     
    This membership is offered to Cats whose actions are along the lines of what the club is about: doing what we can (worth two copper coins or a million dollars), as individuals or as a group, to make a change for the better.
     
    Reading your story – love for the land – and helping a family who shares that love, and is prepared to work hard.
    I like it.
    I hope the South African farmer and his family arrive soon.

    This P?

    This SCAMdemic has been planned for years and is an international plot because the Globullists behind it have their tentacles everywhere.

    The Globullists have crowned themselves the the new royalty and have been working for decades to come up with ways to control their subjects; which is everybody but them; technology has been their force multiplyer. The USA is against royalty and is thus, the number one target for destruction. What we are seeing now is the implementation using the SCAMdemic as a cover.

    Basically, the D-rats and some Rs have shredded the US Constitution in the name of the SCAMdemic. It is unfolding like the NAZIs plan to take over Germany., They are lying about the deaths and case numbers from C-19, the media-rats are constantly pumping out propaganda to promote fear while at the same time, silencing and censoring any medical professional or researcher that tries to tell the truth, e.g. NO ONE has to die of C-19 and there are effective treatments.

    These EVIL people have accounted for a lot of unnecessary deaths, but despite their best efforts, e.g. infecting nursing homes in the D-rat controlled states, just not as many deaths has they’d hoped. So, rather than a pandemic, they have been running a SCAMdemic using the media-rat propaganda. Believe me, if we were really in a pandemic, such as the Spanish Flu pandemic of the winter of 1917-1918, we would not have to be told we were in a pandemic, we would know. by the excessive death toll in the community (I haven’t heard of any mass graves, have you?). Yet, so few people are dying, they have to LIE about the deaths by hiding the average deaths in a given community in previous years while attributing just about every cause of death to the C-19. They would not have to fabricate deaths in a real pandemic with a high fatality rate. Even so, the real death toll is low, way below a pandemic level

    With this SCAMdemic, we are getting first hand experience, particularly those of you in a D-rat controlled state, of a communist dictatorship. Even the tactic of civil riots and destruction of properly along with ratting out your neighbors for not wearing the “mask of submission” which has morphed from a mask to a “face covering”, sort of like Globull Warming morphed into climate “change” when they didn’t get the results they desired. The SAME damn people behind the climate “change” fraud are behind the SCAMdemic, IMHO.

    Sadly, too many people are wearing the useless “mask of submission”. I myself have never worn one and will not; I have my Medical Mask Exemption t-shirt and am ready in case I get challenged but haven’t so far. Fortunately, I live in a state that did not make a state wide mandate for the stupid mask so it’s easier to get by unlike you people in the D-rat dictatorships. And they ARE dictatorships because they do not represent the will of the people.

    We have seen from all that has gone on that a very small group of people can cause a great deal of damage and death if they are not stopped. We should have learned this from NAZI Germany. The NAZI party was small but they wormed their way in to positions of power and, with small incremental steps that no one thought much about, eventually shredded the German Constitution and ended freedom in Germany while killing 100s of thousands of honest German citizens in the process. Then of course, all the MILLIONS of people that died from the resulting war. All because the “silent majority” stayed apathetic and silent which let the cancer of the NAZI party grow.

    When a small group of politicians and a mob of a few dozen people can destroy a city of hundreds of thousands of people, like Portland for instance, there is something very, very wrong. For the last 30-40 years, people have been brainwashed to be helpless which is necessary for the Globullists to take over.

    So, do we do nothing and let them get away with it? (Which will make them stronger and lead to further destruction of our freedom) Or fight back in every way we can think to do. Apathy is easy in the beginning (it’s just a face “covering”) but fatal in the long run. Just look at history. JMHO

    I’d agree with most of it.
    I don’t think the plandemic has been planned for years, just they got desperate when Trump couldn’t be impeached and kept winning.
    Global Warming had been going on too long and their predictions were therefore being shown to be the bullshit they always have been.

    They need to get rid of him and when they couldn’t they attacked before he win back too much.
    Another year too many in the states may have woken up and changed their brainwashed thinking.

    But it’s nice to know that there are others out there thinking clearly.

    Recent listing from TPG Telecom on the ASX.

    https://www.asx.com.au/asx/share-price-research/company/TPG

    What do you guys think? Still a bit volatile, but they do a good job at selling affordable ADSL to ordinary working class Australians … must be some value in that.

    I’m a bit late in responding Tel, but TPG are more than ADSL providers. They recently purchased iiNet, the second largest ISP business in Australia, which now makes TPG the second largest internet provider in Australia, after Big Pond. I’ve heard that they are having some dealings with Vodaphone, so it looks like they are expanding into the whole, broader telecom market.

    Cronkite, was it you or Trades Hall that brought up the Henry Ford clinic Hydro study? Whichever one of you it was… well lets not distinguish as you’re both mutton heads. I think it was both you two idiots anyway. The study proved zlich for hydro. The reason the study used hydro in combination with a steroid, which is now widely used (the steroid) and there are claims the use (of the steroid) reduces the death toll by 50%.

    There’s another problem with the study. The research was done using hospitalized cases, while the wider claims about the benefits in using hydro applies when the hydro is administered early on – before hospitalization.

    Luckily, I’m very thorough and won’t allow anything to get through the bullshit detectors. You two deserve a clip over the ears for peddling highly emotional, drama queen nonsense.

    Hydro maybe effective and should be used at the beginning of the China bug. Even though there’s no gold standard science the risk reward is pretty decent.

    How is it that those paid to find answers to problems, cannot see this as a solution that would work? There would be many graduates who would be happy to exchange city life for the regional areas, if they did not have the burden of that debt hanging over their heads.

    Coronavirus: Self-employed, quarantiners, and Victorians with reduced pay to get access to Jobseeker welfare

    Richard Ferguson

    Victorians in coronavirus lockdown will have expanded access to welfare benefits and crisis payments — and they will not be obligated to search for a job.

    Under a new scheme devised by the Morrison government, Victorian JobSeeker applicants will not have to be unemployed to receive the $1100-a-fortnight payment.

    The self-employed, people in quarantine without paid leave or income protection insurance, and workers with reduced hours of pay will now be eligible for dole payments.

    Jobs Minister Michaelia Cash said on Sunday that asset tests would be waived until late next month and Victorians would be exempt from mutual-obligation job searches — which will come back into effect for JobSeeker recipients in other states — until further notice.

    “No Victorian will face financial penalties during this time,” she said.

    “However, job seekers are encouraged to remain connected with their employment service providers to ensure they are supported to access the full range of assistance including mental health services, if required.”

    Never forget, Vic was quite stable for a few weeks and then Dan allowed the BLM protest to go ahead. And two weeks later, the numbers started to increase.

    Never forget, Vic was quite stable for a few weeks and then Dan allowed the BLM protest to go ahead. And two weeks later, the numbers started to increase.

    Shown to be not linked. Long ago.

    the Department of Health and Human Services told Seven News, and any other journalists who asked for clarification, that there was no evidence linking the two.

    “We are aware of six confirmed cases who attended the Black Lives Matter protest,” the department said. “Currently there is no evidence to suggest they acquired the virus from the protest.

    “None of these cases are known to reside at a major public housing complex. Currently no known nor suspected episodes of transmission occurred at the protest itself.”

    The human misery and lives that we will continue to lose over this government action will make the rona look like the nothing burger it is.

    And those lives won’t be on my hands, but the person who called me a Nanna killer and asked me how many old people dying am I willing to kill to keep my gigs, will by her support for tyranny, actually have to live with the fact that not only did she support tyranny at the start, but screamed at those against it, the actual amount of human suffering and death she supported we’ll never know.
    Not only that, the very worst thing, instead of thinking, holy cow, I’m shitting myself here, I’ll shut up and try to let men deal with it, she had the arrogance to yell and scream at men who keep clearer heads at these times.
    Now the same thing Nota did, was done by millions of women around Australia and many women worse than Nota are still screaming.
    And of course we have the apathetic sneering men in their millions.

    The scheme has not fizzled out Ronery . Stop putting your own slap dash opinion to stuff you don’t know nor understand. The scheme, as you call it, is national.

    Gab, I firmly believe the Melbourne spike was caused directly by those gatherings. The official line today is that 200+ infections cannot be traced to any community source. That is total bullshit.

    Example.
    A woman from H&M Northland tested positive after attending the BLM march.
    Shortly after, one “cluster” buried in the bowels of the Elf Department Big Website was identified as “H&M Northland cluster”.
    Coincidence?
    That cluster grew to, I think, 20 or 30 people.
    OK.
    So she infected 20 or 30 people in the shop but there is no chance she infected anyone at the BLM march?

    Interpretation
    We were unable to confirm a benefit of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine, when used alone or with a macrolide, on in-hospital outcomes for COVID-19. Each of these drug regimens was associated with decreased in-hospital survival and an increased frequency of ventricular arrhythmias when used for treatment of COVID-19.

    I’m a bit late in responding Tel, but TPG are more than ADSL providers. They recently purchased iiNet, the second largest ISP business in Australia, which now makes TPG the second largest internet provider in Australia, after Big Pond. I’ve heard that they are having some dealings with Vodaphone, so it looks like they are expanding into the whole, broader telecom market.

    My understanding is that they did complete their merger with Vodafone, and if you check the Vodafone website they list themselves as part of TPG.

    https://www.vodafone.com.au/about/company

    About TPG Telecom Limited

    TPG Telecom Limited, formerly Vodafone Hutchison Australia, is an Australian telecommunications company providing mobile and fixed broadband services. TPG Telecom’s 4G mobile network covers more than 22 million Australians, and the company has commenced the rollout of its 5G mobile network. TPG Telecom’s nbn™ fixed broadband services are available in capital cities and selected regional centres.

    Vodafone Hutchison Australia and TPG Telecom announced plans for a merger in August 2018. The two leading telecommunications companies are highly complementary in mobile and fixed broadband sectors, and on 13 July 2020 the two will come together to establish a new fully-integrated telecommunications company.

    The merger of the two companies brings together leading talent in Australia’s mobile and fixed broadband sectors. It will also accelerate the benefits of the substantial network investments made by both companies. The new TPG Telecom will be better able to invest in next generation mobile and fixed networks and will drive innovation, service and product improvements to benefit Australian customers.

    TPG Telecom will operate a number of leading mobile and internet providers including Vodafone, TPG, iiNet, AAPT, Internode and Lebara.

    On 29 June 2020, Vodafone Hutchison Australia changed its name to TPG Telecom Limited, and on 30 June 2020 was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange under the code “TPG”. On 13 July 2020, the implementation of the merger will be complete.

    Shannon Deery: Stage 4 shows Daniel Andrews has finally lost control of coronavirus crisis

    Unlike previous promises we’ll get through this unscathed, there was no such assurance with the announcement of harsh Stage 4 measures. And why should there be, on this, our third, desperate shot at lockdown, writes Shannon Deery.

    The last thing Daniel Andrews wanted to do was to move us to stage four, and concede he’d lost control of this crisis.

    But declaring a state of disaster on Sunday the Premier had to admit defeat.

    Australia’s highest paid premier has led us to the worst possible outcome.

    Students will suffer. Old people will suffer. Young kids will suffer. Families will suffer. Single people will suffer. The lonely will suffer.

    Every single Victorian will suffer.

    For at least the next six weeks in lockdown, but certainly more after that.

    Already, mental health services are unable to cope. A chronic shortage of mental health practitioners can’t deal with an already strained system.

    Unlike previous promises that we’ll get through this unscathed, there was no such assurance yesterday.

    And why should there be, on this, our third shot at lockdown?

    The stakes are much higher this time around.

    The day before our first lockdown in mid-March, Victoria recorded eight new cases of COVID-19, catapulting the total number of cases in Victoria to 57.

    There was just one case of COVID-19 in Victoria thought to have been acquired through community transmission.

    Yesterday 671 new cases were detected, seven deaths reported, and the total number of cases hit in excess of 11,000 with soaring community transmission.

    Mr Andrews said he just couldn’t accept days and days of cases in the hundreds.

    Except he has. For weeks we’ve had soaring case numbers. Dozens of Victorians have died.

    And yet little action over the past three weeks, a reluctance to ramp up the attack on this silent enemy.

    There was the introduction of mandatory mask wearing, but that appears to have done little more than give people a false sense of security that all they need do is cover up to be COVID safe.

    Look to the hundreds who hit St Kilda beach yesterday to “exercise”, or the jam-packed South Melbourne market with people shopping for “essentials”.

    I wasn’t at either, for the record, but pictures of the crowded hot spots were doing the rounds on social media.

    What about the cracking business hardware stores have been doing since March?

    There’s nothing else to do, so may as well stay home and decorate.

    One major electrical goods retailer was advising customers they had to come into the store over the weekend if they wanted to negotiate prices, it couldn’t be done over the phone.

    All this in the middle of a pandemic?

    Again we’ve been told if we all behave ourselves and do the right thing, this will be over in six weeks.

    If history has taught us anything, it’s that we may very well be right back here in another six weeks.

    Especially with the stage four light version of restrictions announced yesterday.

    But for the bizarre curfew, there were few changes.

    I say bizarre because, from my reading of the stage three restrictions, anyone playing in the spirit of the game wouldn’t have been out after 8pm anyway.

    But now we’re being made to stay home by law, like alleged criminals who swap their nightly freedom for a shot at bail.

    But take away the curfew and some other minor amendments (thank God sense has prevailed and families can no longer do the weekly shop together), and the restrictions are light on.

    And confusing.

    I can’t go for a walk with my family, but I can have an Ubereats driver come to my house, after presumably being to 20 other homes.

    I can’t be out after 8pm, but supermarkets can stay open until late.

    Through this whole pandemic, Mr Andrews has tried to have his cake and eat it too: enforce restrictions without upsetting anyone.

    Apart from the fact that could never work, it literally hasn’t worked.

    The danger with these new restrictions, apart from the fact they’ve come so late, is that they risk giving too little gain.

    It’s likely the Premier will announce some much harsher workplace related restrictions on Monday.

    Herein lies the problem.

    Why break up the announcement? Why delay the inevitable? It does nothing but confuse people.

    Are we in a state of disaster if things can wait a few days until we’re ready?

    Disasters don’t wait.

    The changes could see a significant number of businesses and industries forced to close.

    Indeed Victoria could almost completely shut down.

    Good. It seems that is the only way we’ll see this thing through.

    A fierce economic knock now, for a shorter period, must be better than months of ongoing suffering, angst and uncertainty.

    Between the hotel quarantine debacle and senseless inaction, the government has proven it can’t be trusted to get us through the crisis.

    Likewise, many selfish Victorians, including the 130 COVID-positive ones who last week refused to self-isolate, have proven they can’t be trusted to do the right thing.

    The safest thing is for us all to just sit inside for a few weeks and ride it out.

    Maybe a harder, swifter lockdown from day one could have avoided so much pain for so many.
