    Overhead last week “I am over MAFS. Not watching it again.”

    Until next season. Just you wait LL. Lol.

    Ha, ha, maybe.
    It gives me a chance to watch oil rig docos in peace.
    But I think the “some humiliated person will kill themself” has struck a chord.

    Trying to blame Hunt is a distraction.

    For the private aged care debacle in Victoria? The Feds are responsible for aged care. Richard Colbeck is the Minister for Aged Care. He is a junior Minister to Greg Hunt, whose portfolio includes direct responsibility for Aged Care. So, blaming Hunt is not a distraction. He and his junior minister should both resign.

  4. notafan

    Sure Grigs.

    Everyone places a high value of your opinion.

    Who was it that wouldn’t give aged care in Victoria PPE?

    There are actually worse Presidential candidates than Joe Biden.

    Meghan Markle reportedly has serious ambitions to run for president (25 Sep, via Instapundit)

    Meghan Markle harbors serious ambitions to run for president of the United States, according to a report.

    After the Duchess of Sussex and husband Prince Harry dumped royal duties with their historic Megxit this year, the 39-year-old former “Suits” star now has her eye on the White House, a close friend told Vanity Fair.

    A rare case where the Bee probably wish they’d thought up this story first, except it isn’t satire.

  6. Perth Trader

    Nota…dont be immature. If I went into any hospital for heart surgery and had both livers removed I’d expect the Fed Health Minister to want the person or persons responsible to be held for account.

  7. Entropy

    Putu Winchester-Stanton

    The irony of him bagging out Vic refugees from winter is the prick probably isn’t from there either.
    Byron bay was a great place in my youth, you could knick down for a quick surf at tallows or eateries depending on the wind direction before school.

    Nowadays it is overcrowded, parking fees etc. a horde of sad old hippies, Melbourne tourists pretending to be either hip young hippies (but too clean), middle aged surfers or metallic sandles and belt resort wearing doctors‘ wives. The worst though are the migrants who pay ridiculous prices for an old cottage and then busy themselves imposing their will on everyone else. Most of this lot have hyphenated names.

    Quarantine should not have been handed over to the States. Perhaps the premiers insisted on it but a uniform approach seems a better idea.

    The Federal government should oversee health/infection control and quarantine in an epidemic or pandemic, right from the top, as with national security and borders.

  10. Some History

    The Mikakos resignation may simply reflect her “no confidence” in the Hunchback government. More to come? More to come! 🙂

  11. Now, these same types demand various governments abandon restrictions and lockdowns because after all, only the old or the sick will die, and they were on their way out anyway. Suddenly, every life is not so sacred, after all.

    A factual statement. These demands and sentiments have been stridently expressed almost word for word by many here over past months.

    True.

    But don’t remind those who post this stuff here and claim at the same time to value human life as it applies to abortion.

    Ms Mikakos said she takes responsibility for the health department and “the buck stops” with her, but said that there were matters that her department didn’t brief her on.

    Ms Mikakos has been in parliament for 20 years and has no professional career to return to. Having been tossed out of the nest, her future best interests are served via the ‘diligent Minister brought down by departmental failings’ playbook.
    And not being a Labor Rat in an ALP State.

  25. Quarantine should not have been handed over to the States. Perhaps the premiers insisted on it but a uniform approach seems a better idea.

    Absolutely.
    It is most closely the responsibility of Immigration and Border Protection, but Dutton has buggered any notion that this agency can successfully manage anything other than raiding families in the early hours of the morning in regional Queensland, and shipping them off to detention.
    The feds have, at their disposal, locations for quarantine in remote locations, (most close to airports) staff (including ADF personnel) to manage it, and resources such as aircraft and transport assets to facilitate security.
    It has always made more sense to quarantine in sparsely populated remote locations than in hotels in the middle of our most densely populated cities.
    It’s not as if land quarantine hasn’t failed before.
    In 1919, maritime quarantine was much more successful.

    It’s fascinating to watch that it’s time clip from ’72 that someone posted here. Can recognize a lot of the actors/actresses/personalities was surprised to learn that Brian Henderson, Jimmy Hannan and Tony Barber were there. Lot’s of Bellbird people- Joe Turner, Roger Green 🙂

    It starts with one, and then like the death of a thousand cuts it permeates your soul. You put up with a single MAFS episode to get more crotch fruit. There, that wasn’t so bad. Was it? Then it’s The Voice as well, sometimes taped and back-to-back, but crotch fruit’s still in season.

    Then it’s time to go to folk markets on Saturday mornings. With her friends, not yours, who will soon become your friends while your original friends slowly become nobody’s friends. But crotch fruit.

    Yum cha with the goils on Sundays. This is shit. But now it’s part of the dance, which if done well enough will be rewarded with crotch fruit.

    Crotch fruit: minge mangoes, apricot arses, pussy pineapples, snatch strawberries; that sort of thing? Good thing I was always a meat eater. It’s the condiments which count.

  39. Top Ender

    Glasgow Uni feels like a prison

    Police patrol our halls of residence. We’ve been banned from pubs. Even Christmas could be cancelled.

    and

    I’m at Glasgow University, which has been the subject of considerable controversy this week. I’ll spare myself a lawsuit by not revealing every detail, but if you take a group of young people, most of whom won’t have been away from home before for longer than a school trip, it takes only a few brain cells to realise that they’re going to find creative ways of having fun – restrictions or not.

    We enjoyed smatterings of the usual activities, yet everything was tinged by the times we live in. Drinking, meeting new people and poor attempts at cooking – all hallmarks of many students’ first steps into adulthood – were juxtaposed with regular police patrols through halls. Police would even harass people for the heinous sin of congregating in the street. The university’s own security staff swaggered around like trumped-up soldiers, replete with hi-viz vests and body cameras. Even in the early days, whispers of positive cases and self-isolating flats permeated conversation.

    Of course, nobody signs their life away for three or four years solely for the purpose of becoming a drunken mulch. But our education itself has also been one of the major victims of the government’s ineptitude. I do enjoy watching my pre-recorded lectures, in as much as I enjoy my subject. But without wishing to denigrate the lecturers – many of whom would rather be teaching face to face and have worked hard – the experience doesn’t strike me as being all that different from watching YouTube (which would not come with a nine-grand price tag). The dynamic pedagogy of being in a lecture theatre simply cannot be replicated virtually.

    It has always made more sense to quarantine in sparsely populated remote locations than in hotels in the middle of our most densely populated cities.

    Why’s this?

  52. Makka

    In terms of who is responsible for the Vic debacle, the Inquiry yesterday showed an Org Chart of the Crisis Management group. or committee. The leader is the Crisis Management Commander with the Deputy CMC as #2. (my terminology may be off ,doing this from recalling the document)

    The Deputy is the overall operational lead. Charged with ensuring execution of all facets of the response to ensure decisions taken at cabinet level are carried out. The Crisis Management Commander is part of the Cabinet group managing the crisis. Makakos had the role of the Crisis Manager Commander. The Deputy was supposed to be Sutton, who never was. Because of the nature of the crisis – a pandemic. In fact there has been a rotation of 3 or 4 clueless numpties through that very key role. That role is responsible for ensuring among other things, all aspects of the quarantine had integrity. Like so much of Andrews Govt it was a clusterfk.

    I recall Sutton answering questions in the media or pressers along the lines of ” Yes, I would have thought I should have had more involvement in the hotel quarantine arrangements.” Also, Andrews indicating the CHO has more to do than “run committees”.

    So, who made the decision to NOT put Sutton in as Deputy on the Crisis Management group. I’m betting Andrews. And that is why Olive Mikakos keeps saying it’s not her fault the hotel quarantine fked up. It doesn’t absolve her but it ALL still points clearly to Andrews total mismanagement not only of the crisis and response but his his whole Keystone Kop Govt.

    No, you haven’t. All I’ve ever seen from you on abortion is you talking from both sides of your mouth.

    And again today:

    But don’t remind those who post this stuff here and claim at the same time to value human life as it applies to abortion.

    Equating people simply engaging in communal life with a mother ( and father) procuring a doctor to deliberately kill her (their) child in utero is absurd and obscene.

    A chance of a Biden landslide though.

    Of course the ABC in reporting on the Breonna Taylor Grand Taylor decision provided absolutely no context for the jurors decision. None whatsoever. So the audience are left with the thought that Breonna was deliberately shot in a “no knock raid”.

    As I’ve said on many occasions it’s not what is said so often in reporting by the mainstream media it’s what they decide (either unconsciously or wilfully) to leave out.

    How can you possibly have a meaningful discussion of this and similarly contentious cases such as deaths in custody in Australia without being presented with all the facts.

    Unsure if reported entirely accurately, but this is a novel reinterpretation of the Bible.

    https://hillfaith.blog/2020/09/25/china-rewrites-jesus-with-the-woman-caught-in-adultery/

    In the Gospel of John, the penalty for women caught in adultery under Jewish law at the time was death by stoning, and that’s the horrifying end the poor woman in this particular incident was about to experience when she was dragged before Him by the Scribes and Pharisees.

    The Scribes and Pharisees who did so hated Jesus because in His conduct and teaching He was repeatedly demonstrating the emptiness of their religion of works under the Mosaic law of the Old Testament.

    By forcing Him to deal with this woman, they expected He would either have to repudiate His own teachings, which would discredit Him with His followers, or repudiate the law, which would provide them a basis for legal charges against Him.

    But Jesus was way ahead of them. The Gospel of John tells us that “Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, ‘Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.’”

    Soon, the woman’s accusers, all men, began dropping their stones and walking away. We don’t know what Jesus wrote in the dirt but odds are it was the names of the men accusing the woman, along with details of the sins in their lives.

    Then Jesus turned to the woman and said “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”

    Thus was illustrated the fundamental difference between a religion of works and a faith based on the grace and forgiveness of God. So why would the CCP have a problem with that?

    According to Christian Headlines, the CCP changed the ending so that in the textbook it reads like this: “When the crowd disappeared, Jesus stoned the sinner to death saying, ‘I, too, am a sinner. But if the law could only be executed by men without blemish, the law would be dead.’”

    The exact opposite of the Gospel, with a result there is no such thing as forgiveness or grace or mercy, there is only the law and suffering a horrendous penalty for breaking it. And who writes the law in China? The CCP.

    All these rants about abortion….
    If you really believe abortion is the killing of the innocent, you have only one possible moral position, and only two laws that would make sense –
    1. Abortion becomes a crime equivalent to murder at any stage of gestation.
    2. Compulsory paternity checks are legislated to identify the male involved, and when identified, the father confined to nine months (for symmetry) in clink, or someplace similar, irrespective of circumstances, and upon release be held 50% financially responsible for the welfare of the child.
    Both parties are responsible.
    Both parties accept the consequences.

    Vitamin D in Vascular Calcification: A Double-Edged Sword?

    While deficiency is widely noted, excess levels of vitamin D, or vitamin D toxicity, has also been reported and attributed to cases of kidney stones, renal impairment, and cardiovascular diseases [75]. In contrast to deficiency, toxicity has not been associated with excessive sunlight exposure, but more so with abnormal supplementation of calcifediol as over-production of inactive cholecalciferol in the skin does not result in over-production of calcifediol [76,77]. Excess supplementation of calcefidiol however, leads to saturation of free calcifediol levels that exceeds DBP binding capacity, which then directly induces gene expression and functional changes in target cells [78]. Therefore, while supplementation of calcifediol is an accepted form of treatment for vitamin deficiency, the process should be tightly monitored to ensure that levels are restored, but not overdosed to toxic levels.

    Which is why I advise people to always get their D levels checked before going on a supplement binge.

    Morrison doesn’t comment on Mikakos resignation

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he won’t add fuel to the fire in Victoria by commenting about the resignation of Health Minister Jenny Mikakos.

    Mr Morrison, visiting Adelaide for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak in March, said he was only interested in helping to get Victorians “back on their feet”.

    He said the testimony of Premier Daniel Andrews at Friday’s inquiry, where he said did not understand the extent of Australian Defence Force support on offer, would not be aided by his commentary.

    “I don’t think it helps, my commentary on those matters,” Mr Morrison told reporters.

    “It’s not my role to get involved in those matters that are being investigated in Victoria, they have their processes and I will respect those processes.”

    When asked directly if he believed Ms Mikakos had been “thrown under a bus” by Mr Andrews, Mr Morrison replied: “I don’t have any observation to make.”

    This is hilarious. The Alt-Right opposes inter-racial adoption because it stops white women having white babies. The Woke Left opposes inter-racial adoption because it is “fraught” and has the “potential for harm”. There is no practical difference between Wokeism and the far right.

    2. Compulsory paternity checks are legislated to identify the male involved, and when identified, the father confined to nine months (for symmetry) in clink, or someplace similar, irrespective of circumstances, and upon release be held 50% financially responsible for the welfare of the child.
    Both parties are responsible.
    Both parties accept the consequences.

    Wow, so chick get knocked up & the bloke is detained for 9 months. Weird logic even misandrist…

    I told the Politicians by letter down here last year, when Gladys’s sprung her laws that I would prefer to see no abortion but am pragmatic about it. If they do allow it in its present form then no late term stuff under any circumstances unless it involves physical life of one of the the two in danger or after the term a baby could be kept alive outside the womb (Being about 5 months I believe). A sizable chunk of the faux Conservatives, Labor & Animal Justice hypocrites waved it through by modifying 2 doctors for the more odious parts to 4 that every abortion clinic probably now has on referdex.

    Yes it does take 2 to tango but she could tell the bloke to tarp up or say no. Same goes with him. IMO just reflects how selfish and ill-disciplined human nature can be when it suits them.

    Also all the hoo ha about the USSC and tipping of the balance of Justices, I don’t believe the hype about Roe vs Wade but I do believe abominations like late term abortion may come under scrutiny. I would be happy with that as hopefully we would follow suit in Australia.

Only bought it for a Summer but 4 years and lots of travel adventures later. Depreciation over 4 years – $500. Just added a Volvo Polestar to the mix of potential next Tedmobiles. The Bentley was a Continental GT and it looks quite ordinary close up, no presence for the squillions. Says it’s the best car he’s ever had and he has 40 vintage cars in his shed. Delivering it to his mansion tomorrow and he’s going to allow me to drool on them. Retired farmer from Victoria, as ocker as they come. He was going to a wedding 100km away, pulls up in the Bentley, singlet, shorts, thongs, great stuff. Mind you after a couple of Mahindra drives I doubt he’ll ever go back to one of the vintage cars.

    Grace Collier – leave Victorians alone!

    It is regrettable that once again, Victorians find themselves subject to intense national examination, unrelenting and often inaccurate criticism and demeaning commentary. No one likes to be told by interstate commentators that they live in a shit hole, and people cannot be berated into voting a certain way — in fact, attempts can be counter-productive. Despite the scalding experience that proved this just two years ago, lessons have not been learnt. Consequently, at the next election, history might repeat.

    Abortion was legal under English Common Law up until ”the quickening” when the fetus kicks for the first time. That was the most elegant solution and solves the question of whether a Stillbirth is an abortion.
    Going back to Genesis 2, Noah cursed Canaan to be Slaves forever, perhaps that Law is still in force?
    Cromwell sold Irish mercenaries into slavery in the Carolinas in the 1650s, that’s not covered under Noah, so criminal behaviour there for sure.

    Snow is starting to disappear from our lives. Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain’s culture, as warmer winters – which scientists are attributing to global climate change – produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries … Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community … According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

    “Mr Phemister was first told private security firms were the preferred method of guarding the hotels by senior DJPR official Claire Febey.

    Ms Febey attended a meeting at the State Control Centre at 4:30pm on March 27, less than 36 hours before the program was due to start.

    Emergency Management Commissioner Andrew Crisp was also at the meeting, along with senior members of Victoria Police and the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

    “The critical component from the debrief (from the meeting) was that we had been asked to commission private security for the operation (hotel quarantine),” Mr Phemister said.

    He added he did not ask who had made the decision to engage private companies.”

    More about Febey:

    ‘Claire is an experienced leader with a commitment to inclusion and social justice. Claire has worked in public policy, strategy and the delivery of community services, with organisations including Save the Children Australia, the Department of Premier and Cabinet, and strategic communications firm SenateSHJ. Claire is currently a Director with the Department of Jobs, Regions and Precincts with the Victorian Government.’
