Nothing Is More Important

The Deputy Premier and Chief Health Officer are in constant contact with the NRL. I will be reminding the NRL the future of the season is in their hands. Everyone has to do the right thing. Nothing is more important than protecting the health of Queenslanders.”

– Despite an election looming, Queensland’s Annastacia Palaszczuk is courageously indifferent about Grand Final day

 
The only cluster worrying the people of Queensland is contagious losing on the paddock. If one or more of the red-boxed strugglers were in contention, she’d sell ventilators on Gumtree to finance a Lang Park finale.

    Yep. Pretty sure it will be an all,Sydney grand final. If it gets played.

    Another reminder that we are no longer Australians.
    Identity politics and the division of people into multitudes of factions has reached its natural conclusion – it’s state against state, with losers being funded by all Australians.

    What i don’t get is why the nrl players who broke the rules aren’t being strung up like the two Queensland girls did. It appears NRL players breached government quaratine conditions which is far more serious than breaking an NRL “covid sage” plan. Yet nothing is being done?

    I don’t know if you have heard but leakers in Vic gov have given us the heads up that the Vic gov is about to declare 1/3 of workers *every* business must be stood down. All the usual lobbying is taking place now to get exemptions but government seem to be standing strong and only giving them to health and no other industries.

    This was serious….

    But it’s about to go thermo nuclear – Dan is going to nuke another 33% of the economy!

    Actually I give the Titans some hope in future years compared to the Broncos and Cowboys. They’re starting to look like a league team. They should win a majority of their remaining matches for the rest of the season. Taylor at five eight, Brimson at fullback with Fifita coming into replace Arrow whose heading to the Rabbitohs.

    Maybe lower half of the eight next year.

  6. I received a letter today saying that:

    Gippsland Water Sewer Maintenance Contractor, GMA Environmental Services (GMAES) will be carrying out routine sewer maintenance throughout your neighborhood.

    This work will assist us in keeping the sewer mains clear and help protect your property and others from future sewer system interruptions.

    That’s five days of sewer probing, no information as to how long anyone intends to probe at each property, and this is all in accordance with Section 133 of the Water Act 1989 (prominent header at top of letter) and when I tried to contact Gippsland Water, no response.

    Who gives a rats a**e. If the teams wanted to go to Victoriastan and wanted to or are refused, no one would worry. I’ve never voted for the socialist, but I’m with Pull-a chook on this one. You’ll never guess where I was born, raised and retired after many years working in Mexico.
    Yes, we are all Australians but how many of us would venture into Vic at the moment? Please, don’t bung on this Old School Conservative garbage of identity politics.

    FFS members of this “federation” still can’t even agree on rail gauge sizes (Qld has the second largest by km narrow gauge rail network anywhere in the world) what makes you think there would be agreement on anything “important”. Parochialism roolz, maybe “localism” might turn out to be the way to go, who knows.

    @ Dacey Boy-

    FFS members of this “federation” still can’t even agree on rail gauge sizes (Qld has the second largest by km narrow gauge rail network anywhere in the world) what makes you think there would be agreement on anything “important”.

    Not quite-The major interstate rail links have been standardised for at least the last 35 years.

    And secondary inland freight lines are either being rehabilitated and regauged or built afresh. Despite the usual politicking and Governmental cluelessness about anything that is not immediately winning the media cycle for one side or the other.

    Reducing the workforce by 1/3 does not reduce the economy by 1/3. It’s more like 40 or even 45%. This is because businesses have a core portion of their business without which each business wouldn’t be able to return to previous levels. Businesses will first get rid of those workers providing additional profit (through filling orders post-break-even) rather than undergo the complete re-structure necessary to transform into a business 2/3 of the original size.
    This is smart – if they are a successful business, this will allow them return to pre-COVID size and profits (and more) after the pandemic and if they are not, then they wouldn’t have lasted in the long term anyway.

    ‘Reducing the workforce by 1/3 does not reduce the economy by 1/3. It’s more like 40 or even 45%.’

    Depends if that 1/3 reduction of workforce decreases productivity or not. It might increase it. Automation could replace the workforce to maintain productivity. Improved processes might eliminate some of the work previously required to fulfill production.

    For example, a reduction of the “Public Service” by 1/3 (a decent start) would increase the economy.

  12. mundi

    Terry,
    None of the public service is being stood down, they will all just be paid to do nothing, like is usual, so no economic change.

    For the private sector is it was as simple as automation and productivity… they would have done it already.

    If they can keep Cameron Smith on the field the Storm will shit it in. And I say that knowing they’re based in victoristan and the hunchback will claim credit.

    The Chook is playing on the”us and them” theme, political state of origin, Queenslanders are more important than other Australians.
    Blatant politicking using the Doomsday Bug as an excuse to throw her weight around.
    Nasty fat bitch won’t get my vote but will sucker in enough to get over the line.
    Remember, its all about politics.

    The Gold Coast is where football codes go to die. It should be left to the Russian mafia and the bikies.

    Hey Mundi,
    ‘For the private sector is it was as simple as automation and productivity… they would have done it already.’

    Not necessarily. It might be that accepting the inefficiency is still more profitable (in the short-term) than the cost of developing and implementing automation. The change in the operational environment (such as the sudden disappearance of 1/3 of a workforce) might change that equation, substantially.

    I see the Storm is near the top. The cream always rises.
