I thought Scotty was supposed to be from marketing

It’s not going to be compulsory to have the vaccine. There are no mechanisms for compulsory… I mean, we can’t hold someone down and make them take it.”

    Mandatory…compulsory…I don’t think he’s very good at understanding words once they go beyond two syllables.

  2. a happy little debunker

    Somebody must have reminded him that power, once granted – can be taken away…

  3. Peter Smith

    Hold on, there are many mechanisms for making it compulsory. For example, denying public transport, interstate travel international travel, for those without a valid vaccine certificate. Think it can’t happen? Draw a line from China and North Korea to Victoria. Authoritarian governments have ways of making people obey.

    Tee hee.

    Bwave Sir Robin.

    Someone must have had a word in his shell-like. Advice to the PM. Do your own research.

  5. Today has been an excellent and abject example of a politician inadvertently telling the truth.

  6. Bruce of Newcastle

    I don’t mind being injected with a vaccine so long as it isn’t derived from an aborted fetus.

    Gee, that was walked back almost as quickly as the Waffleroach’s “give the states back income taxing powers” brainfart (in which, funnily enough, Morristeen was also involved).

  8. Infidel Tiger King

    It won’t be compulsory. You just won’t be able to access domestic or international travel or medical care without it.

    For most people Corona is asymptomatic.
    But are antibodies still fighting the virus in these asymptomatic people, and to what degree?

    With the second anniversary next week, someone must have reminded him that he’s approaching the use-by date for post-Howard PMs.

    BREAKING: Antibodies tests in FL show that 23.5% were infected with Coronavirus.

    This is 5,052,500 people in a state with a 21.5 million population.

    At 9,759 deaths, Florida’s CFR is now 0.19% which is not even double of the flu’s rate nationally.

    A vaccine no one needs.

    And there within lies the nub of a black market.

    I think that level of discrimination may fall afoul of the constitution.

    Why not make politicians, elected officials, public servants at all levels and their families get the vaccine first? They can show us all how it is done.

  15. Tim Neilson

    Why not make politicians, elected officials, public servants at all levels and their families get the vaccine first?

    Well, at least politicians and senior health bureaucrats.
    Then let everyone else wait a year or two to see whether there are any hideous side effects.

  16. Infidel Tiger King

    I’d prefer a successful human trial first, which rules out politicians.

  17. mem

    Morrison thinks he can save Australia with a vaccine! Unless it is a vaccine against left wing health bureaucrats and Daniel Andrews he’s got Buckleys chance of saving anyone. We are down the plug hole and no happy clapping is going to save us. We need someone with more backbone and acumen.

  18. candy

    I wonder if he changed his mind when someone suggested he and his ministers get the vaccine first and they all got scared and kicked up a fuss and said no way would they go first, citizens should be the guinea pigs.

  19. Infidel Tiger King

    Health Minister Greg Hunt said he “wouldn’t rule it out” when asked if having a vaccine would be a requirement of entering or returning to Australia. Meanwhile, an infected passenger was on a flight to Sydney.

    This is fine.

  20. twostix

    Tonnes of people we know are absolutely deadset against any sort of rushed “COV19” vaccine no matter what walk of life or political of economic persuasion.

    Being against it is almost one of the safest positions to have in polite company at the moment re COV19.

    The bugmen class have misread the people badly on this.

  21. twostix

    I’m willing to be very charitable and entertain the idea that Morrison is deliberately wrecking these pushes into ‘mandatory’ Nazism by the bugman public health bureaucracy.

    He did the same thing with the mobile app. The public health class wanted it made mandatory, he blundered out all high handed, backlash occured, app was forgotten about – earth salted for a good few years.

    Same here?

  22. Eyrie

    Why not make politicians, elected officials, public servants at all levels and their families get the vaccine first? They can show us all how it is done.

    And you are going to know they are given the vaccine and not normal saline, how?

    I am sure a few reflexive tweaks by our pollies could create a means of compulsory vaccinations. I am reminded of the scenes in the old movie On the Beach ,where people in Melbourne queued to get their suicide pill to use before radiation arrived. We are the government, we are here to help you.

  25. vr

    And you are going to know they are given the vaccine and not normal saline, how?

    They can take the vaccine at a public event. The jig is up if others have a negative reaction and they don’t.

    Also, Tim Neilson’s idea that we wait a year after before giving it to others make a lot of sense.

  26. Perfidious Albino

    At least Putin tested the Russian vaccine on his daughter first…

  27. Infidel Tiger King

    Yeah, but that was a shot of vodka.

  28. Alan

    “It’s not going to be compulsory to have the vaccine …”[?] That’s a lie.

    ABC News: The laws allowing people to be detained or forced to seek treatment are outlined in the Biosecurity Act 2015, allowing the nation’s director of biosecurity (who is also the chief medical officer) to put in place strict control measures.

    Read that again carefully: the Biosecurity Act 2015. Did you see it? 2015.
    The laws have already been in place for 5 years.
    Now look at the details in section 74(1)(e) and 74(2)(b).
    That’s how you do it.

    They threw Jezebel from a window; her corpse eaten by dogs. A humble suggestion. ”

    I still remember that the dogs didn’t eat her hands.
    Its always made me wonder maybe its a cultural thing just like steamed chickens feet in Chinese restaurants which we tend to avoid… or maybe
    ”Scripture: 2 Kings 9:30-37
    Why did the dogs not eat Jezebel’s hands, head and feet? It was prophesied that Jezebel would be eaten by dogs which is taken to mean someone who is greatly accursed. We don’t know exactly why, but in other parts of Scripture we know that the mark of the beast will be on the hand and in the forehead. Perhaps there is a connection here.”
    Wonder what the Quoran has to say in such cases.

    It’s interesting that the plandemic has basically come to an end in Sweden, once only 14% of the population had antibodies, so maybe just our public servants, politicians & hysterical media & left wing types, all being essentially altruistic public-spirited types would volunteer to help reach that 14% safety barrier to achieve herd immunity by taking that safe vaccine with regular annual booster shots rather than simply relying on their own old fashioned healthy immune system . Think of the major saving in taxpayer subsidies to pharma if only 14 % rather than 95% of the population had to take their safe vaccine.

    Its intriguing that we have a pandemic where 99.98% recover from it,
    It’s almost that none of us, unlike our economy, is supposed to die from anything anymore.

    Below is the view from someone who has a decades-long record of being right as well as the connections to the behind the curtain movers & shakers as well as the actual masters of the universe.

    ”It is one thing to have free markets where we can trade even for a living. But what is unfolding around us is a whirlwind of complete authoritarian insanity. COVID-19 is not any more lethal than the annual flu. So why are governments going completely insane destroying all our freedoms? Are politicians this stupid? Or have they simply been bought selling out to the highest bidder?

    New Zealand has adopted the prison camp approach. You will not be released until you accept their testing. Keep in mind, they will incarcerate your entire household as well as any other family member who has visited. This is like the Japanese Internment Camps during World War II. They will use force to take you to their prison camps if you resist.

    Meanwhile, in Australia, the Prime Minister confirmed that there will be a mandatory vaccine for COVID. When he was asked whether the vaccine would be mandatory, he replied it needed to get to about 95% of the population. “I would expect it to be as mandatory as you can possibly make it.”

    This is the conduct that Bill Gates cheers as leaders in how to deal with viruses in the future. Obviously Gates has no respect for human rights.”

    You have to wonder if the dogs would once again avoid eating his hands & fingers.

  30. twostix

    Now look at the details in section 74(1)(e) and 74(2)(b).
    That’s how you do it.

    What an absolute dogs breakfast of words and side notes in that legislation.

  31. pat

    the public’s biggest covid victory to date.

    horror of horrors, I sometimes wish Morrison had lost the election, as maybe then certain journalists/radio presenters would have been telling the truth about the coronavirus, instead of going along with the faux crisis narrative.

  32. Old School Conservative

    Don’t relax too soon.
    Morrison also said:
    “Nobody’s going to force anybody to do anything as a compulsory measure, but we will certainly be encouraging people to take this up,” he said.

    “There will be a lot of encouragement and measures to get [a] high rate of acceptance.”
    Yep, a range of measures only limited by the Heath Department’s imagination and ferocity.

  33. Scotty is from marketing is the biggest con job since we got told Bryan Brown could act.
    Scott Morrison was never in marketing.
    He was in the public service.
    And boy oh boy, does it show!

    Scotty is from marketing is the biggest con job since we got told Bryan Brown could act.

    And you whine, distort, dissemble and get angry every time you lead with your stupid chin and cop whack.

    Here: Scotty is from marketing. All Promotional jobs.

    He then moved into tourism, serving as Deputy Chief Executive of the Australian Tourism Task Force and then general manager of the Tourism Council of Australia; the latter was managed by Bruce Baird, whom he would eventually succeed in federal parliament.[14]

    In 1998, Morrison moved to New Zealand to become director of the newly created Office of Tourism and Sport. He formed a close relationship with New Zealand’s tourism minister, Murray McCully, and was involved with the creation of the long-running “100% Pure New Zealand” campaign. He left this position in 2000, a year before the contract schedule

    Why did the dogs not eat Jezebel’s hands, head and feet?

    No meat. No fat. No taste. Too much hair.
    As for the feet, no dog could smell his mark.
    Dogs don’t like hairy hands and feet with no taste.

    for those without a valid vaccine certificate.

    Pretty sure those are online.

    I don’t mind being injected with a vaccine so long as it isn’t derived from an aborted fetus.

    They will definitely tell you if that were the case because they are honest and caring people.

    BREAKING: Antibodies tests in FL show that 23.5% were infected with Coronavirus.

    If true, that means that pretty much EVERYONE in Florida (Florida man included 😉 has already had the rona, so its done in that state; There is growing evidence that only a minority of people make antibodies in dealing with the virus. Around 75% of the population are ‘pre-immune’ due to the other, non specific parts of their immune systems (ie the white cells, macrophages, T cells etc). These people stop the virus at the door, and so never need to make antibodies. They get exposed, dont get sick and are no longer vulnerable. DO NOT believe our ‘wise government docs’ (sadly, yes I am one) when they say that we need 75% antibody positives to lift lockdowns. We dont, the required number is between 10 and 20% to produce ‘herd immunity’ due to the hidden 75% who are pre-immune.

  44. Speedbox

    As others have pointed out, it won’t be compulsory – its just that your movements outside your home will be restricted, travel interstate or overseas will be forbidden, many jobs (both public and private) will be out of reach, childcare declined and on and on.

    Worse, if the take-up rate is not to the Government’s satisfaction, the various restrictions and closures will remain thereby crippling our economy even further. Sure, its a threat, coercion, but don’t think for a minute that the Government will go soft on this. You have already seen the power wielded by the ‘health professionals” and they will continue to hold sway well into the future.
