    Coming to Victoriastan soon!

    These incompetent fuckwits have no idea of the ramifications of what they are doing.

    Or else, they do and they are evil fuckwits.

    Perhaps they are evil, incompetent fuckwits.

    Any way you slice it, the new Zombie Class is coming for your liberty.

    You thought it’d be tattoo’ed barcodes. So 1940’s.

    QRCodes are the now.

  4. MACK

    Mak Siccar – you’re right. The Victorian Premier, 无能的傻瓜, will be right onto this.

    Even if you are on the “green” or “current” status, you can still have Covid. The virus doesn’t check your mobile before it strikes.

    What a dopey idea. It must be being introduced for something else. Whatever can that be?

  6. Dinky

    As a Victorian I agree with most of the comments here regarding Andrews & his inept government but residents of other states seem to be under the illusion that it couldn’t happen in their state.

    Whilst they’re happily mocking Victorians they don’t seem to realise that they are just one government fuck up away from being in the same boat as Vic. Do any of you really believe that any of the premiers wouldn’t do what Andrews has done in a heartbeat? I think Gladys & Annastacia are itching for the opportunity.

    Don’t know. But whatever it is, we’d have to be the total idiots they treat us as, if we think this is all – and only – about CovidBS.

    But … ‘conspiracy theorist’ – so don’t even speculate.

    Why can’t they just stick with the old tried and tested 6 point yellow star you sew on your clothing?
    numbers tattooed on the forearm work well, too.

    Exactly what I was thinking.
    The re-education has begun!
    We’re from the gub’mint and we’re here to help!

  10. thefrollickingmole

    Bad, bad people who think they can pop this back in the box.

    All those cheery “sports, shopping, visits” will be denied to those who dont comply I assume?

    Social credit score here we come.

    Take a screenshot of the “green screen”. Then display that on your phone if someone asks your status.

    No Dinky. We see Viktoriastan as a warning writ large.

    The same symptoms exist in other states. It is just Victoria was the most vulnerable, being about 55% Leftard before the plague, and now seemingly 60+% (if polling was accurate – we’ll see, I guess) because you lot seem to fall in love with incompetent Authoritarians for some reason.

    One advantage NSW does have over QLD & VIC is Optional Preferential Voting(OPV) in the lower house; we are not forced to deliver a vote to the Uniparty blob.

    Of course, we have more than our fair-share of BatShitCrazies, centered on the CBD and in the Doctors wives’ electorates (most notably Wentworth & Warringbah, and several others), but what NSW also has (thankfully) is a HUGE working (well, it was pre-covid) class suburbia that swings between the dual illusions of (workers party) and (freedom party).

    If this group ever wakes up and figures our that Labor is not for workers and the Liberals are not for freedom, then it could open the door for another option. The “divide” would then become a fault-line between the “Productive/Freedom Class” and the “Parasitic/Authoritarian Class”.

    That’s why we want that grotesque deformed jug eared commie imbecile and his useless idiots (such as that vile hippie deadshit sutton) shut down in no uncertain terms, with extreme prejudice (summary executions following a series of public floggings should suffice).

    So the insanity doesn’t spread – and yes, I’ve noted before that Pluckachook and Gladyschlocklian are just itching to try and implement the same fascist idiocy in Qld and NSW. All that vile piece of excrement in Disasterstan has demonstrated is just how easy it is to get away with it.

    It’s good to be green! This seems adopted from the Communist social credit system.

    The book of Revelation explains where this is all going, fun to see it all getting underway.

    I am sorry I can’t believe this ad. There was not one Asian or black person in it. According to the current template; you start with the 30 year old white woman, professional and confident, then cut to the young black man professional looking, cross to white male with beard and man bun, from there go to the Asia woman with a child, then cut to some fat young male geek (optional), then back to the 30 year old for the summary.

    I am sorry I can’t believe this ad. There was not one Asian or black person in it.

    Spot on. It starts well enough: single young woman living alone with two fur babies. Check. Female doctor. Check. Then we see a male doctor’s name on the clipboard and it’s downhill from there. I didn’t see one interracial gay couple. Not one. Fascists!

    I for one wish this app the same level of success enjoyed by our own beloved covid-safe app.

    No Dinky, but Annastays’ere won’t do anything too drastic until after the election next month, unless there’s a really big blowout (then she’ll pose as the great saviour, a la Dan the Man excessive “response”). What happens after that if labor get back in is anyone’s guess. She and her band of wreckers are already doing a good job of killing off regional Queensland, specifically agriculture and fisheries, and they’d kill off mining too if they could.

    These people are the same people who want to run the electricity grid in a most complex manner because they think they can. They conflate critical applications with much lower order ones where unforeseen glitches are merely inconvenient, not a disaster.

  20. feelthebern

    Can we do the same with politicians.
    Red: existing politician sucking on the tax payer teat.
    Amber: former politician sucking on the tax payer teat.
    Green: non-politician.

  21. Tim Neilson

    Reported in the Herald Sun:
    Prof Sutton said he expected to see masks “for the next month in one form or another” because masks make people take the virus seriously.

    Obviously something could have been lost in transmission, but if it’s true it’s yet another admission that the rules are about PR not about health.
    (As I’ve mentioned before, a friend who’s a doctor working in government admitted that the mask laws were far wider than would do any good for health, but were easier to administer than better crafted rules.)

  22. notafan

    In other words the virus isn’t serious for most people.

  23. Dr Faustus

    Health Passport Ireland: Sounds official and Big Brothery.

    In fact is a commercial product, developed and promoted by an Irish IT entrepreneur.

    To be sure and it would be amazing if it ever took off in Ireland.

    yeh – but she’s a ranga, so you know its Ireland.

    Five minutes after they’re tested and found free of the dreaded lurgi they meet a nice policeman who promptly infects them

    They are giving the finger to the rest of the world for all those Irish jokes (now considered non-PC of course).

    Sure, and that changes nothing at all about its likelihood of going ahead.

  28. Dr Faustus

    It has already gone ahead.
    If people take it up, well, that’s what they want.

    It has no legal significance in Ireland.
