    Another sweeping statement. Have you asked every Victorian? Of course not. Don’t write insulting trash.

    Mate, I fucking live in Melbourne, most shitheads here are more than sympathetic to Dan.

    The only people who consistently aren’t in love with the dickhead are small business owners.

    I wrote that because after my numerous discussions with people at work and around the place the consistent feedback is that “Dan’s doing a good job, what else could he do?, we just can’t let the old people die!”

  2. Because DB, would you ban Toddlers and Tiaras? Child models? Children’s underwear advertising in catalogues?

    It just isn’t objective enough – your are verb-readying somone?

    I haven’t seen somone define the word but it should be illegal? Once you define it then you can clarify what ought to be allowed or not.

    I don’t think the above are sexualising minors but that cringy film is.

    I don’t want to make faux pas illegal.

    Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated
    Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation
    of Its Probable Synthetic Route
    Li-Meng Yan (MD, PhD) et al.
    Abstract
    The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has led to over 910,000 deaths worldwide and unprecedented decimation of the global economy. Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial. The natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support. The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific journals. Nonetheless, SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus. In this report, we describe the genomic, structural, medical, and literature evidence, which, when considered together, strongly contradicts the natural origin theory. The evidence shows that SARS-CoV2 should be a laboratory product created by using bat coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone. Building upon the evidence, we further postulate a synthetic route for SARS-CoV-2, demonstrating that the laboratory-creation of this coronavirus is convenient and can be accomplished in approximately six months. Our work emphasizes the need for an independent investigation into the relevant research laboratories. It also argues for a critical look into certain recently published data, which, albeit problematic, was used to support and claim a natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. From a public health perspective, these actions are necessary as knowledge of the origin of SARS-CoV-2 and of how the virus entered the human population are of pivotal importance in the fundamental control of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as in preventing similar, future pandemics.

    Thuc you too, Bruce.

    Top book Dot. Sparta were like Germany – unstoppable on land. Athens were like Britain, unstoppable on water. The war went on and on and on as neither could beat the other in their own element, until Athens had a brain fart and sailed off to Syracuse. The rest, as they say, is history.

    Then as a sequel just after Athens finally fell their guys were stuck for something to do. So they hired themselves out to the Persian usurper Cyrus. Xenophon’s Anabasis is even better reading than Thucy’s epic.

  6. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    I shake my head at the furious competition here to display the most fury about the Melbourne cops at work, to the extent that some of the inconvenient facts are shoved aside, ignored. I wondered about it all against the backdrop of what I learned about their typical workday from dozens of schoolmates who entered the NSW police force, many of them as 16 year old cadets.

    From what I read some known nutcase turned up to the hospital, wasn’t admitted immediately and got very angry about that, put on a scene. He was described as a builder, a “gentle giant”, they are hospital staff, not WWF wrestling referees.

    He stormed out against the wishes of medical staff (who knew better than him) and they called the cops as their procedures manual required – “a danger to himself” they reported. He busted a couple of glass doors on the way out – happens all the time, flimsy little armour glass jobs in heavy aluminium frames get shattered by disappointed patients every other day, poke ’em with your finger and they fall apart.

    I read here “… anyway no footage has been released, I call bullshit” from the amateur defense solicitor, knowledgeably, dismissively.

    So he’s off speeding down the road with all the other drivers, the euphemistically named “danger to himself” – presumably the hospital girls are very, very happy about that. The cops sent to deal with it have a fair idea there is a lunatic on the loose, a big bloke, who is going to be a handful.

    He ignores police directions to pull over, which is encouraged here this week by readers who are, at other times, mostly sane and reasonably well behaved. The cops do what the community demands and ram him to halt his mad escape. Better that than him sending your missus and the baby in its pram flying through the air when they cross the road in front of him, eh?

    “No!” someone thunders up the page “Now he has the human right to sue every one of them and their superintendent and the Minister and his records clerk! And Andrews!” For damaging his recklessly driven tradies ute.

    Then comes the “fist fight”. They drive at him first to knock him over, only because he is striding about in the middle of a busy road waving his arms about and yelling at them. Perhaps they should have thrown their butterfly net over his head.

    I read he threw a couple of punches (not shown) and he’s knocked to the ground (not shown). He’s not finished yet though, he is entitled to take them all on. “They were kicking him and he wasn’t even fighting back. It was extremely excessive.” said his father, lying. His father was extremely absent at the time.

    The ambulance blokes up here and the coppers we deal with speak of the manic behaviour of people they are sent to apprehend, of their extraordinary strength, the physical injuries they inflict, the damage they do, and about the number of men necessary to subdue them. Drunks and druggies and loonies in Surfers are “valuable contributors” to the Gold Coast Hospital casualty crews’ work on Friday and Saturday nights … and always dangerous until they get jabbed (which the staff cannot do until they know whatever other poisons they have in them).

    Argue madly, no skin off my nose, but have a look for your objectivity in doing that – you won’t find any. I can see no-one mentions family or mates in the police, I can see some fabulous absolutes in play … and some ruly, truly amusing quips, yeah – like the call yesterday to get Dick Pussy and some chicken truck drivers in to mow down a few evil cops.

    Just back from lunch with two journos. Not by choice, friends of friends. One a senior something in some press group, the other a corporate and Government media adviser.
    I’m still quivering. With fury, yes, but more in fear.
    “Lock down absolutely the only solution”. “Protestors criminals”. “Police just doing their jobs”. “The police need combat clothing because of right wing violence – NZ blah blah”. “Death threats against CHO demonstrate that the Right must not be given any say”. The unquestioning surrender to authority was breathtaking.
    It is a shock when what you believe to be the case is demonstrated to you as reality. Frightening for our kids futures.
    They invited us to join them on a trip up the coast for a few days. The Long Suffering could see that my needle was in the red zone and hurridly declined.

    FMD. How often does it need to be said. Most people can’t work out the right people to socialise with let alone fix a countries issue. The Cat disappoints again.

    I think it is possible to distinguish a child modelling clothing and a child modelling clothing in a sexually suggestive manner. Which is why we’ve been able to have kids in movies like before ‘Cuties’ without the controversy.

  13. rickw

    Mick, nothing licenses the cop to stomp on the back of his head. That’s the whole point. That’s why the cop is suspended with an investigation pending. Even the idiots at Vicpol don’t think that stomping on the back of someone’s head is ok.

    I did a paper round thru the early mid 80s, at Christmas every customer got a signed card from me ‘Christmas comes but once a year; when it does it brings great cheer.

    They didn’t drive at Gaeglearse to stop him doing doughnuts in the middle of Melbourne, even though he is doing it in the middle of a busy road waving his arms out the window and yelling at them. Perhaps they should have thrown their butterfly net over his car?

    It is the different attirudes to a bloke who killed several and injured more, compared to one who damaged some glass doors, but injured no-one that rankle.

    Ok on the cuties thing.
    There was a short clip posted which shows this.
    Kid runs in room, lies down you see knees & torso face on. She yanks her pants and bright pink knickers down over her knees then sticks a mobile between her knees and flash goes off as she takes pic. Then a little fiddling with the phone and the screen shows it being uploaded.

    I’m 1/2 tempted to go on 4. Chan and start a “ cum on cuties” pic challenge. Maybe 500 spunk splattered pics will have the effect decency doesn’t?

    Gates Foundation Awards $20 Million to BBC World Service Trust

    A five-year, $20 million grant awarded to the BBC World Service Trust by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in December blurs the lines between funding for traditional media and public education, the Seattle Times reports.

    The grant will largely be used to support efforts to disseminate information about public-health initiatives in Bihar, one of the poorest and most underserved states in India.

    The BBC World Service Trust, the international charitable arm of the British Broadcasting Corporation, works to promote human rights and reduce poverty through media and communications. It often works with the BBC World Service to get its message to the 180 million people around the globe who tune in to BBC World Service on a weekly basis and also provides technical support for news and media organizations in the developing world.

    A recent Seattle Times analysis found that the Gates Foundation has spent nearly $70 million on direct grants to media organizations or for media training and research in an effort to boost and shape coverage of global health and development issues. However, the foundation told the Times that the BBC grant was different than grants it had awarded to news organizations like ABC and PBS.

    “This grant does not support the news gathering capacity of the BBC,” said Gates Foundation spokesman Chris Williams in an e-mail to the Times. “This grant is essentially public education.”

    Suspended, and will be sacked and in all likelihood charged as well. As it should be.

    The rest is fine. Punters off their heads get run over by the jacks in the NT all the time, to the point it isn;t even newsworthy any more.

    No.

    From Infidel Tiger King at 9:23 pm:

    ” ADF member fined over hotel quarantine breach
    A member of the Australian Defence Force has been hit with a $1000 fine after entertaining a female guest while in mandatory quarantine in Sydney overnight.

    NSW Police said ADF officers were conducting a security check at the hotel on Hickson Road in the CBD around 12.45am on Tuesday when they heard a female voice in the room of the man who had recently returned from overseas deployment.

    Nice to know there is still at least one heterosexual left in the ADF.”

    KD still coming out in sympathy with cops, always with a caveat to deflect.

    When I was growing up in my teens 60’s and 70’s my old man had a lot of cop mates. They were fkg animals. Drunkards, wife beaters, corrupt . The old saying; to be a cop you have to be a c**t , still holds accurate to this day. Vic today is bursting at the seams with them. I hope that dog who did the stomping gets jailed for many years and while inside learns all about homo love from a lunatic Serb.

    ‘So stomping on the back of someone’s head’

    No it is not okay, rickw. I just said that. Expressly. The bloke will lose his gig and be charged.

    Running him over is no different to ramming him off the road – which is what everyone was wanting them to do to Gargosoulas before he’d killed anyone. Now they can. And do.

  38. This idea that it is too difficult to draft a law that prohibits minors being depicted in a sexually suggestive fashion is daft.

    …and yet, there appears to be no law thus far and we live in a litigation and compliance age.

    Your intent is sound. Note that you’ve clarified what you want; more precise language than “sexualising”.

    The problem is that the act in question is suggestion. The worst examples of are obvious. What is not obvious will be controversial.

    Everything to do with Pell, from start to finish;
    Everything in the lead up to Gargasoulas’ shitfight, including not ramming him at Flinders and Swanston and Ashton trying to have the inquiry report covered up;
    The punters running Taskforce Purana, and all of the Gobbo debacle;
    The Dale involvement in the Hodson murders, and his idiot mate caught doing a run through on a grow house;
    The Silk/Miller investigation where one of the crook will likely have his conviction quashed;
    The NSW cops scaring sunbathers out of parks and surfers off beaches;
    Vic cops doing the same, and ripping phones out of old womens’ hands from behind;
    Every single thing to do with the AFP, regardless of circumstance;
    SA cops not prosecuting wombat killers because ‘culture’;
    WA cops tormenting law-abiding gun owners for no reason whatsoever (and NSW cops for that matter); and
    All traffic cops everywhere, past present and emerging.

    From what I read some known nutcase turned up to the hospital, wasn’t admitted immediately and got very angry about that, put on a scene.

    That’s NOT correct. He had been in emergency for 19 hours and still hadn’t been assigned a bed (there seems to be a problem with the medical system here as well).

    So he’s off speeding down the road with all the other drivers…

    There’s no indication that he was in a vehicle. The whole incident was with him on foot. The police car ramming concerned ramming him while on foot. The police car struck him, he was airborne for a short distance and landed on the road on his butt/lower back. This ramming incident is also under investigation.

    The problem with Victoria is Victorians.

    Most of them fucking love this shit

    I’m torn between this view and Vic-bashing fatigue – or was. A few weeks ago I was inclined to think Twostix was being unnecessarily critical of the Victorian public’s love for Dan and lockdown hysteria. Enough with the you-asked-for-it schadenfreude, I thought. These are fellow Australians and they’re enduring the most disgraceful police state tyranny in our history, after all.

    Now I simply distinguish between good Victorians (mostly conservatives and some libertarians; that’s the Victorians on this blog – so ease off a little) and truly sickening COVID cultists who love The Crisis and The Measures. One thing the latter have done brilliantly – not that it was hard given their mates run the media – is caricature freedom advocates and epidemiological realists as “conspiracy theorists” and bogan simpletons. The fact that shy mainstream conservatives and libertarians don’t take to the streets or organise protests, however, made the calumny inevitable and woefully easy to gin up.

    Mark Steyn wrote a brilliant column several weeks ago on how the biggest problem with the Silent Majority in the West today is that it is, well, silent.

    It’s been revealed Victoria Police is yet to roll out new mental health training for frontline members due to an ‘extraordinary’ year of bushfires and the coronavirus pandemic.

    That’s exactly the type of middle finger response I’d expect from these arrogant turds. The public are so stupid , they’ll believe that after many months Academy training and then follow up training no doubt, VikPlod have never ever been taught how to safely restrain a mentally ill person. Brutalizing pregnant women, choking females without masks, threatening grannies, dragging women from cars , that’s obviously all be trained for however. Just missed the restraining nutter course. Bugger. Sorry.

    Soldier, 26, is busted ‘entertaining’ a 53-year-old woman who snuck into his quarantine hotel room – before both are fined $1,000 and she’s booted out

    An RAAF soldier was caught sneaking a woman into his quarantine hotel room
    The woman, who wasn’t in quarantine, was staying at Pier One Hotel in Sydney
    She saw the 26-year-old having a beer while standing at his hotel window
    He held up a sign with his mobile number on it, before she snuck into his room
    ADF officers who were patrolling the hotel caught the woman leaving the room

    Rick Beato is a very good guitarist who has posted a lot of very fine videos about the technical and lyrical aspects of music. In this one, he showcases his top 20 acoustic guitar intros to big hits.

    I subscribed to his channel last week after binging on Alice in Chains recently. His breakdown of one of their songs that appeared on my recommended list was remarkable. The depth of his musical knowledge and skill, demonstrated via his ear and on his guitar was a virtuoso lesson which was a pleasure to watch.

    VicPol have had a few years to effect this desperately needed training. And still haven’t.

    This is a Vicpol incident from early 2018.

    Person had recently had back surgery and was withdrawing from painkillers. His psychologist, concerned about his mental state, asked police to do a welfare check – call by and see if he’s OK. Guess what happened? Six plod show up and brutalize the man. Fortunately, the victim had home security cameras that plod was unaware of.

That it now involves gunning down police while in their cars is for the Dems nothing more than breaking a few eggs for the omelette. How this ends is anyone’s guess.

    A teacher has been stood down after she allegedly allowed students at a South West high school to watch a video of a violent suicide in her classroom — the day after all schools had been warned about the sickening footage.

    Some students became distressed and needed counselling after viewing the recording of an American man taking his own life on a pupil’s mobile phone at Busselton Senior High School.

    The Education Department today confirmed a teacher had allegedly allowed a small group of Year 12s to view “an inappropriate online video” in class last Wednesday.

    I too feel a lot of disquiet.

    The Democrat leadership is about 20 years behind the mark and keeping them where he wants them is a walk in the park for Donald Trump. The State governors are somewhat predictable and also vulnerable to reaction / revolt from their local constituents if they wander too far.

    BLM and its cohorts are a problem because they can spin this way or that without warning. I suspect the FBI and some other important bureaucratic fiefdoms remain hostile and they will beaver away to unsettle him as President.

    I know too little about the military.

    The questions which exercise my mind are what moves Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping might make to capitalise on the distractions for Donald Trump. They are external and well beyond the President’s control. Kim Jong-un, or his sister, remains a wild card.

    In the SMH of all places. There’s a few exploding heads in the comments there

    COVID-19 has hammered home some uncomfortable truths about us as a people

    Soon enough there will be a global reckoning on whether the coronavirus defences did more damage than the disease.

    It will be driven by the swingeing economic destruction imposed by governments that will deliver millions into poverty, driving internal and external conflicts. Beggared states will turn inward, the world will become more polarised, angrier, more dangerous.

    In time it’s a fair bet the cure will be seen by many as the real curse, as people whose lives have been destroyed seek retribution.

    Though it will be a small wave in the storm, here the Victorian solution and internal border closures should be counted among those judged as doing much more harm than good. That’s because there was abundant evidence by mid-year that pointed to more road maps to recovery than the “only way” decreed by the Victorian Premier or the self-interested, colonial-era border wars led by his peers.

    You can forgive the early response of all governments to the horror of a novel virus. Plagues are in the front rank of human threats. In February and March little was known about COVID-19 and the worst was rightly assumed. Australia’s leaders reacted quickly, worked in unison and chose to buy time; to lock their populations down while health systems were fortified with a timetable set for easing their way out.

    That was a sensible, defensible plan. Now there is no nation plan and that is as indefensible as Victoria’s panic-stricken response. Because now we know much more about the disease and, while it is a serious illness, it is a whole lot less frightening than it is made out to be.

    COVID-19 is nowhere near as deadly as the Spanish Flu, which killed an estimated 50 million, mostly young, people worldwide. Fifteen thousand of those deaths were in Australia, in a population that was then just 5 million. At the time of writing, COVID-19 had killed about 930,000 people globally. Here 816 have died in a population now pushing towards 26 million.

    No matter how hard the death of anyone under 50 is spun, it is so vanishingly rare among Australia’s body count as to be close to zero. If you are a woman, it is zero. In Australia there is a far greater statistical chance that someone under 60 will die in a car accident.

    COVID-19 mostly kills the elderly, especially if they have an existing chronic disease. That is not an argument to let them die but it should guide government responses.

    Of the 816 Australian deaths the vast majority, 606, were in residential aged care. So if you are going to throw a ring of steel around anything it should be around aged care homes, not Melbourne. The rest of the population should be liberated to get on with their lives while taking sensible health precautions.

    Governing should be about balancing risks against costs and only fools and sophists make arguments based on false choices. The debate is not between what we are doing and doing nothing. It should be about what response delivers the greatest good for the greatest number. The Victorian solution punishes the many for the few. It preferences the very old over the young, mortgaging the future of the entire school and working age population. It is hard to imagine how you could design a policy which is more profoundly unfair or damaging to a society.

    If the argument is we must do everything in our power to protect the elderly then were are already doing well. Federal Health Department data, first published in The Australian, shows that there were almost 1000 fewer deaths in residential aged care in the first seven months of this year than in the same time last year.

    I sourced the same data from the department and received two a tables and a note.

    “The lower number of deaths for this period in 2020 (32,398) compared to the same period in 2019 (33,383) is likely the result of increased influenza immunisation rates, and increased infection control protocols introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the health department note said.

    So, why is it a crime for someone to die of COVID-19 in care but it’s OK if they die of absolutely anything else?

    This disease has revealed the character of our leaders and hammered home some uncomfortable truths about us as a people. As a nation we seem comfortable with authoritarianism and too many relish the role of prefect.

    And nowhere in this often-opaque democracy has a less transparent court system, bureaucracy, police force or government than Victoria. The people there have been badly served, even as some revelled in the servitude. Its systems of power have combined to deliver the wanton destruction of its vibrant society. Its government has condemned its people to a poorer future, to higher unemployment, more poverty and less opportunity.

    Rejoice. Dan Andrews has destroyed the village to save it.

    COVID-19 has hammered home some uncomfortable truths about us as a people

    It’s indeed rare to see such sense (belated as it is) in an article, especially in the SMH.
    Just a little late to the party, to be much good.

    Based on this payout by NSW Police, VicPol will bankrupt Victoria.

    Given the judicial system in Victoria they will never get a decent hearing – people will need to sue VicPlod in the Federal Court and even then the Federal Court is rife with Rudd/Gillard/Labor placements.

    Local mp posted local story about 95 year old going home from hospital after 10 week stay, recovered from covid19.

    Yes that’s lovely.

    But when new mum’s are bundled home after 24 hours, even if it turns out they are very unwell and patients getting a mastectomy are also expected to go home after a one night stay and manage themselves it’s rather galling.

    Facilitate systematic sharing of knowledge, expertise and lessons learned on building social cohesion and community resilience to prevent violent extremism across cities on an international basis, through both regional workshops and international conferences.

    Strong Cities Network is the usual crapfest that unproductive drones sign up to so that they get nice, all expenses paid o/s trips to attractive places. A side benefit is the chance to parade woke credentials and network for even more useless but well paid jobs. It’s a scam.

    Further to C.L.’s comment last night where he quoted how Mark Steyn recently said…”how the biggest problem with the Silent Majority in the West today is that it is, well, silent.”

    Here is the wonderful Laurence Fox overnight saying…””It’s about time the silent majority started to become a louder majority

    Note that Fox’s career is now dead because he refuses to kowtow to the progressive luvvie theories but it is time that the majority stopped being silent…

    Could one of the reasons why a sizeable cohort of the population is comfortable with Covid policy is because they haven’t suffered?

    Douglas Murray has had a few interviews recently, where he has said that the silent majority have been silent too long and we need to start shouting. He is quite positive that this will happen soon, and indeed I think it is. But there are still many who hope all they have to do is the usual numbering on the ballot to have their say. I fear we have gone well past that civilised time, and we unsilents need to start encouraging those we know who are silently fuming to join in.

    I don’t think the SAS will be disbanded, though. It’ll probably be converted into a creche for all of the children of ADF personnel undertaking their Girls Only Adventure missions.

    Part of the trouble is that the sane people tend to talk to each other. This is understandable because talking to loonies doesn’t accomplish anything. I guess we have to start abusing them as fools and letting them know just how ignorant and stupid they are.

    From Steyn’s piece on the “silent majority” referred to by CL which I hadn’t read:

    The American academy is bonkers and has reared monsters – so that we now have a “black liberation movement” staffed almost entirely by college-educated white women (including a remarkable number of angry trans-women) from the over-undergraduated permanent-varsity Class of Whenever.

    From the man who brought us the priceless term, “the Emirs of Incumbistan”.

    Shitting on the driveway is an impotent symbolic act – it will be met with uproarious laughter by some of the people who are also angry at Pelosi (the ones who are not trying to bring up their kids a bit better than that) and anger from Pelosi’s drone like supporters. It will not shift opinion. If anything, some people who oppose Pelosi will have to own that some of the people on their ‘side’ are infantile scatologically inclined buffoons.

    It will not budge the pointer of the scales one bit. It gets people no where.

    Well, that is how I see it.

    J.K. Rowlings books were never long-form SJW pamphlets, were they?

    She wrote he childish books (also read by a sadly numerous mob of adults) but her SJW cred came purely from her twitter account and interviews. I remember being utterly aghast at a woman I worked with – in her 20’s – recommended a Harry Potter book because ‘you like reading’.

    When she was famous and said the right things she must have felt unassailable, thinking she was famous for saying the right things.

    Sadly misunderstood how the left roll.

    From Daily Mail – might prejudice the trial of the police who returned fire after being shot at first. Cant remember if cops been actually charged yet.

    The city of Louisville has reached a ‘substantial’ financial settlement with the family of Breonna Taylor six months after the black EMT was shot dead by police in her apartment. The settlement, which is expected to be announced later on Tuesday, is believed to be worth millions of dollars, the Louisville Courier Journal reports. In addition to the financial deal Taylor’s family will receive as a result of her death, the settlement will also include a series of police reforms, according to a source with knowledge of the matter. Among the reforms is a requirement that police commanders must approve all search warrants before they are sent to a judge.

    I predict an avalanche of Victorians moving to QLD post lockdown.

    And I predict that post up-coming election, things aren’t going to be all that different up here, regardless of who wins. Maybe a tiny bit softer in the application, that’s all. Probably zonal, rather than full state. Vic is the learning curve of how far they can push it.

    People won’t tolerate an indefinite lockdown.

    What makes you think QLD will allow Viktoristanis across the border?

    A HC decision if the politicans don’t oblige.

    Interesting to see Peter Beattie stating that whichever party leads QLD after the election they can’t simply afford to be risk-averse in opening up the state.

    I’m inclined to think she’s standing on principle and doesn’t care what the loony left thinks of her.

    I didn’t know she was old school.

    The theme of her new book did seem rather too obvious a trigger to the SJW’s. I took it as her having so long delivered her own opinions which agreed with the progressives she unthinkingly happened to express an opinion of her own which they object to.

    If she is using her position to call out some of the nonsense on the left then more strength to her (writing) arm.

  217. Oh come on

    I wonder how Melbourne is going in this year’s World’s Most Livable City competition?

    A HC decision if the politicans don’t oblige.

    The groundwork has already been laid.

    The challenge will focus on the question of whether the extended border closures were proportionate to the risk. Recent admissions that modelling has been erroneous or misused will assist but the argument was already formulated.
