IT’S very rare for me to praise the doctors’ union but even its habitually authoritarian spokesmen are warning governments that pushing Australians to be jabbed with a first generation coronavirus vaccine is an incredibly dangerous and stupid idea. Naturally, the tipsy ships’ surgeons masquerading as the nation’s ‘health officials’ last week thug-advocated that very policy.
Scott Morrison initially implied vaccine refuseniks would be physically restrained and jabbed before somebody in his office suggested he pull his head in. There followed a walk-back on compulsion followed by a walk-back of the walk-back by Greg Hunt and others who re-badged “mandatory” as “incentives.” Now there will have to be a walk-back of the walked-back walk-back because the AMA’s advice constitutes public, legally consequential warning. This episode is yet another example of medically second-rate public servants thought-bubbling their way through the news cycle with phony police-state solutions to every passing subject.
