    PS, Chavasse received both of his awards for actions in WW I. The third double VC, Martin-Leake, received one for actions in the Boer War, and the second for actions in WW I. He survived the war, perhaps you can find a familial connection with him?

    Hi Knuckle Dragger
    Yeah, 20 years after the second bloke to receive VC & Bar buys the farm, his [niece, grand niece, second cousin, third cousin, pick one, but don’t call it a distant relative] gets engaged to Charles Upham, who becomes the third person to receive VC & Bar 4 years later..
    What are the odds, eh?
    Well, according to yourself and a few others, nothing out of the ordinary happened here at all, don’t notice it, don’t even mention it, let alone comment on it.
    Here’s the bottom line, digger:
    VC awards are political, always have been, always will be. We’ve just seen that with the Sheean circus, where a whole bunch of pols definitely didn’t cover themselves in glory.
    Did you know Upham?
    Of course not.

    Kyle Rittenhouse, charged in Kenosha protest shootings, fights extradition from home state

    One of Rittenhouse’s attorneys, John Pierce, made clear that he is opposing Rittenhouse’s return to Wisconsin to face the charges. Pierce asked for a month to prepare arguments challenging extradition that he said involve “issues of some complexity, frankly that have not arisen in the country for some time.”

    ‘Cancellers are cowards – their beliefs are built on sand’
     

    The resurgence of Black Lives Matter over the summer has been accompanied by an intensification in cancel culture.
     
    One of its victims was Nick Buckley, who has worked as a social campaigner in Manchester for nearly 20 years. Earlier this year, Nick was sacked from the charity he founded. A petition called for his removal in response to a blog post he had written criticising BLM. But he fought back, and has now been reinstated. spiked caught up with him to discuss his story and what it tells us about cancel culture and identity politics today.
     
    spiked: What did it take for you to be reinstated to your role at the charity?
     
    Buckley: For the first week, I was a beaten man. I talked to a friend who asked why I wasn’t answering anybody who was attacking me on social media. The next day, I decided to fight back. I have spoken to thousands of people, and I always tell them that life’s not fair, but you don’t need to make yourself a victim. It was time to take my own advice.
     
    A journalist from the Mail on Sunday knocked on my door. It was perfect timing. I did a great interview and everything changed on the day it hit the shelves. I received hundreds of personal messages on social media from people telling me not to let the critics get to me. That really helped me psychologically.
     
    A former trustee of the charity set up a petition to have me reinstated, which got 18,000 signatures. Around then, I joined the Free Speech Union. It was fantastic. It got me a pro-bono solicitor, who said it was an open-and-shut case. The charity thought it could just sack me, but there are laws about these things. Trade unions pushed for those laws to protect workers from unfair dismissal. It’s a shame that some unions are not sticking by that principle and fighting for people in the face of this new persecution.
     
    The solicitor wrote to the board. He explained all their mistakes and said I was going to sue them unless they resigned. They did. A new board was appointed, and reinstated me. ……………………
     
    spiked: What would your advice be for people who find themselves in a similar position to the one you were in?
     
    Buckley: Unless you think you crossed the line, don’t apologise. An apology will not make it go away. It will just make people come after you harder.
     
    Fight back. If everything is taken from you, you are a dangerous individual. You have nothing to lose, so don’t take it lying down. Find people like me and reach out to us. Get your voice heard, and try to speak to the press. It’s hard, but what I proved is if you can manage a reasonable attack and defence, people like those who went after me will crumble. They are easy to beat if you mount a campaign because they are all cowards, and what they believe is built on sand.

    Shooter report for the gunny/ex mil Cats. (not you, Numbers, you fuckwit).

    Two more foxes despatched across the Rainbow Bridge this evening.

    A borrowed CZ457 boltie in .17 HMR with a Nikon 7×32 scope.

    I took six rounds to zero the scope at 50 metres earlier today and took out the two foxes with one shot each at around 70 metres.

    First time I have shot the .17HMR and was a bit dubious about such a dinky little bullet but it is incredibly accurate, flat trajectory and obviously good hitting power.

    Might have to wave the Amex about next week.

    No need, we know Chavasse was related to Upham’s fiancee, later wife.
    Wiki says ”distant relation”, but what does that mean, it appears there was only a generation separating them.
    I suspect it was a very close relation.
    From his Wiki entry, Upham was descended from the colonisers of New Zealand, so he wasn’t an upstart, neither was his fiancee, and nor was [her uncle?] Noel Chavasse, only the second man to win the award twice.

    Andrew Bolt: Triumphant Pell returns to the Vatican amid financial scandal

    A triumphant George Pell heads back to the Vatican this week to face enemies who hoped he’d rot in jail. But the shoe’s on the other foot this time, writes Andrew Bolt.

    On Tuesday George Pell flies back to Rome, a challenge to powerful enemies now caught in the Vatican’s worst financial scandal in decades.

    Those enemies hoped Cardinal Pell, the Vatican’s former corruption buster, would rot in an Australian jail on suspiciously false charges of child sexual abuse.

    But Pell returns in triumph, and it’s his nemesis, Cardinal Angelo Becciu, who could now face jail instead.

    And once again, former Vatican officials ask: is there a connection to this scandal and Pell’s legal nightmare in Australia?

    Pell was the Vatican’s fourth most powerful man, overseeing church finances, until Victoria Police charged him in 2017 with 26 charges of sexual abuse against nine different “victims”.

    Pell stepped down and returned to Australia in July 2017 to clear his name, only to spend 405 days in jail for a crime he could not have committed.

    For some at the Vatican, having Pell disappear was extremely convenient.

    He’d been leading an audit of Vatican finances and uncovered extensive corruption, possibly involving even the Mafia.

    Pell warned Pope Francis, adding: beware of Becciu, second in charge of the Secretariat of State.

    Pell was alarmed by one of Becciu’s property deals – a luxury development in London, bought with loans from a Swiss bank with a record of violating money-laundering and fraud safeguards.

    Becciu apparently tried to disguise those loans by cancelling them out against the property’s value.

    Other Becciu deals also looked weird, including financial transfers to buy an Italian hospital that then collapsed, riddled with theft and fraud, leaving an astonishing $1.3 billion debt.

    Becciu had even placed his niece as the secretary to the church’s representative at the hospital. He’s also accused of steering other Vatican business to his three brothers.

    How long is the wire? What’s the diameter?
    Will the printed peg type things be on display or are the functional only?

    16 metres long centenary, maybe 3 or 4 mm SS braid , widgets visible but essentially functional only.
    Widgets to be washable

    no moving parts like a clothes peg … fixed dimensions and the things they will suspend are flexible enough to be squidged into the grippy bits

    bit like a hook at the top to go on the wire, and 3 pincers below to be the grippy bits

    the things being gripped are only like 12mm x 5mm in C.S.A

    the whole thing would be like 5mm thick, 50mm high and 100mm wide

    basically a piece of plastic hangs of a centenary and grips 3 parallel thingys

    looking for a rough estimate of time rather than cost … this is the first batch.
    after this, there’s another few hundred and after that they start to scale up proper

    it appears there was only a generation separating them

    Presumably what you mean is that Molly appears to have been only 30 or so years younger than Noel. Does your comment imply that you have some additional knowledge that you’ve chosen to remain cryptic about?
    The mere fact that they were not generations apart in age says nothing about how closely they were related. The Marquis of Exeter and the Marquis of Salisbury are “distant relatives”, but even if they happen to be close in age you wouldn’t describe them as very close relatives just because they’re both descended from William Burghley, Queen Elizabeth I’s chief advisor.

    I suspect it was a very close relation.

    Give it a rest Ed. What you mean is that you’ve got no evidence she was a very close relation.

    The Chavasse family were moderately socially elevated but hardly immensely influential or powerful. Why would whoever is in charge of such awards feel the need to suck up to them, rather than to someone related to people with more political or military clout?

Especially any Cats who call him out on his rhetorical bullshit.

    Furthermore Edgy, your past citations of the Buteyko Method as a means of destroying coronavirus particles are pseudoscientific bullshit. Nobody in Respiratory Medicine gives it any credence (trust me on that- It was my field for 10 years), and it has caused far more suffering and consternation to ashma patients than any other condition management regimes out there. Including drugs. You would have more success managing your Kung Flu infection risks by snorting unrefined radium and waiting for the cancer and radiation burns to kill you instead.

    ‘Jones walked off set during a live interview with rugby league legend Billy Slater, leaving Nathan Brown, Matthew Lloyd and Billy Brownless to finish the interview. Brownless said: “We thought he was joking but he’s not coming back.”

    ‘Footage then showed Jones on the phone in the Channel 9 corridor before he headed for the exit.’

    My daughter is an Amy too. Hairy and I gave her every opportunity I never had. Stable family, top private school, love and discipline. She thrived. Very caring person, popular, intelligent, good-looking, self-sufficient, top scholar, lawyer, sporting type, married a high flyer bloke who shares the load and loves her without reservation, now having their third child, stellar ongoing career herself in corporate life partnership on offer, big trophy house and the best mother any woman can be. Her children respect and adore her. She’s loving but no nonsense.

    Sometimes I feel strangely remote from her.
    My only little girl. Nothing and no-one is ever perfect, oneself or others. And every child you have is different. I’ve had four. Occasionally I think I would have liked seven, like Amy.

    Then I think better of it. Nope. Four is enough, given the in-law kids you get as well, plus the grandkids who are also growing up. And the cousins nephews and nieces and their families as well.

    @ slackster-

    Some big hits being taken there. And a little bit of over-egging by the Armenian Def Ministry PR people. Some definite Mobility Kills frim the footage (though the missle hits are a bit undeterminate, thanks to the way the footage is cut). And those mine strikes did not look pretty.

    The brew-up shot is pretty spectacular- T-72s store most of their main gun ammunition in a carousel structure beneath the turret ring, roughly in line with the 3rd and 4th road wheels. There is no blow-out protection in the turret, unlike the M1 series, so the rounds will cook off and eventually pop he turret clean off. Some of the K-kills against Iraqi T-72s in 1991 and 2003 were characterised by catastrophic explosions that immediately sent the turrets spinning high into the air.

    Queensland has gone full-on 54 genders. The cops are now required to respect preferred pronouns and new identities. How handy for a criminal, who can change his/her name and sexual identity and thereby erase previous convictions:

    She said having the correct name and gender on police forms would likely lead to an increase in the reporting of crimes — something especially important for trans-people who are often victim to acts of violence.

    Robin*, who identifies as a transwoman/sister-girl, said she was upset by the way police handled her name and identity during the several encounters she had with law enforcement.

    “It shouldn’t be an issue … I shouldn’t have to be explaining it or fighting it, especially as a victim of crime,” Robin said.

    “It was so traumatic, I found it to be even worse than the assault.

    Mentally ill people with hysterical tendencies should not be driving public policy. Why on earth is the Queensland government going along with this nonsense? It’s not as if there are tens of thousands of votes out there in favour of the 54 genders delusion.

    Just as letterbox ‘women’ are great for concealing crime, this will just screw up the database of who people are and what they have done in the criminal justice system.

    Did China trick the world into committing economic suicide?

    As the global community continues to grapple with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic – and the economic catastrophe caused by the associated “lockdowns” imposed by governments around the world – a chilling new theory has emerged.

    It goes like this – China, in an enormous disinformation campaign spread via social media and through compromised voices in Western politics, science and medicine, aggressively pushed for other nations to follow its lead, with the goal of intentionally destroying their economies.

    That’s according to Michael Senger, a lawyer and researcher based in Atlanta, Georgia. In an article for Tablet Magazine, Senger has laid out a disturbing timeline of evidence that, if true, hints at what could be the most effective and devastating psy-op ever carried out by a world government.

    “By promoting fraudulent data, aggressively deploying disinformation, and flexing its institutional clout, Beijing transformed the snake oil of lockdowns into ‘science’, crippling rival economies, expanding its influence and sowing authoritarian values,” Senger writes on Twitter.

    The science of lockdowns is far from settled.

    Sweden, which infamously rejected calls to shut down schools, bars and restaurants through the pandemic, has, according to some experts, largely been “vindicated”. Despite recording more than 5800 fatalities, one of the worst near the start of the crisis, the country’s daily rolling death toll is now negligible.

    Other experts, however, including Professor Peter Collignon from the Australian National University, caution against the Swedish model.

    When the CCP first moved to place Wuhan – the city of 11 million people in the eastern Hubei province where COVID-19 first emerged – under mass house arrest in late January, the World Health Organisation (WHO) described it as “unprecedented in public health history” and “new to science”.

    A month later, WHO enthusiastically endorsed China’s lockdown strategy as a framework for governments around the world to follow. “Copy China’s response to COVID-19,” Canadian WHO official Bruce Aylward said on February 26.

    In the meantime, social media had been flooded with terrifying “leaked” videos appearing to show apocalyptic scenes from the virus epicentre – bodies stacked in hospital hallways, people collapsing in the street.

    The New York Times first revealed in June that Twitter had removed tens of thousands of fake accounts that were being used in a co-ordinated effort to spread the CCP’s message, with a particular focus on Italy – the European nation with the closest ties to China.

    Senger described The New York Times piece, which showed how vast networks of suspicious accounts first began touting the benefits of China’s response in early March, as a “smoking gun on the genesis of the coronavirus lockdown”.

    “The fact that CCP’s disinformation campaign focused on Italy is crucial,” Senger wrote. “The rest of the world followed Italy’s lead.”

    On March 9, Italy became the first country outside China to implement the WHO’s advice. Chinese officials who visited Italy a few days later advised the lockdown was “not strict enough” and that “there are still too many people and behaviours on the street to improve”.

    At the same time, Italy was bombarded with Chinese propaganda – one analysis of tweets from March 11-23 found that nearly half of all posts using the hashtag #forzaCinaeItalia (go China, go Italy) and more than one third of those with the hashtag #grazieCina (thank you, China) came from bots.

    And it wasn’t just Italy. The New York Times noted how one Twitter user, @manisha_kataki, posted a video on March 12 of Chinese workers disinfecting streets. “At this rate, China will be back in action very soon, may be much faster than the world expects,” the tweet said.

    The relatively benign video was shared hundreds of thousands of times, with “quote tweets” in various languages using nearly identical phrasing to complain about being told by governments to merely “wash our hands”, in contrast to China’s strict lockdowns.

    Twitter deleted more than 170,000 accounts linked to the activity, flagged by an Israeli analytics company Next Dim as likely state-sponsored – but Senger shows how hundreds of similar examples can still be found with a simple search.

    “This what the UK should be doing. Not just washing our hands,” one tweet from March still reads.

    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week announced a host of new coronavirus restrictions expected to last for six months.

    Senger notes how Mr Johnson, who imposed a lockdown on March 23, appears to have been targeted after initially opting to follow Sweden’s “herd immunity” strategy.

    “On March 13, suspicious accounts began storming his Twitter feed and likening his plan to genocide,” he wrote. “This language almost never appears in Johnson’s feed before March 12, and several of the accounts were hardly active before then.”

    But China’s propaganda efforts went far beyond social media.

    In July, FBI director Chris Wray revealed American politicians had been explicitly approached by the CCP to endorse China’s strategy.

    “We have heard from federal, state and even local officials that Chinese diplomats are aggressively urging support for China’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis,” he told the Hudson Institute.

    “Yes, this is happening at both the federal and state levels. Not that long ago, we had a state senator who was recently even asked to introduce a resolution supporting China’s response to the pandemic.”

    Last month, Australia announced a sweeping inquiry into Chinese infiltration of the university sector, after revelations by The Australian newspaper that dozens of the country’s leading researchers had been co-opted into the CCP’s secretive “Thousand Talents” program.

    In the US, leading science and medical research institutions including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and Harvard University have been rocked by revelations of undisclosed financial ties to the Chinese government.

    Back in May, Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of the esteemed medical journal The Lancet, told Chinese state TV that China’s lockdown was “not only the right thing to do, but it also showed other countries how they should respond in the face of such an acute threat”.

    As citizens in the US, Australia, the UK and other Western countries struggle through various degrees of lockdown, China, it seems, may be having the last laugh.

    Last month, thousands of people were seen crammed into a water park for an enormous summer pool party in the original epicentre of Wuhan – where there has reportedly been no community transmission since May.

    This week, young revellers were photographed packed together on the dancefloor in a Wuhan nightclub.

    The key question in all this is why China went to such extreme lengths to spread propaganda about the success of its lockdown strategy – and why it was so keen for other countries to follow its lead.

    “The most benign possible explanation for the CCP’s campaign for global lockdowns is that the party aggressively promoted the same lie internationally as domestically – that lockdowns worked,” Senger wrote.

    “And then there’s the possibility that by shutting down the world, (Chinese President) Xi Jinping, who … envisions a socialist future with China at its centre, knew exactly what he was doing.”

  122. Knuckle Dragger

    ‘Robin*, who identifies as a transwoman/sister-girl, said she was upset by the way police handled her name and identity during the several encounters she had with law enforcement.’

    The question here is not the way police handled her name and identity during the ‘several encounters’ with them.

    The question is, or should be – how the rest of the 99.999% of the humans she interacts with handle her name and identity.

    If it’s a perceived societal problem, just say so. But she won’t, because the jacks are an easy target and a headline-grabber for her own personal axe-grinding.

    The cops are doing a lot wrong in Vicco at present, and probably Qld as well. Using Covid-justified outrage to heap more shit on them for not pandering to her own special brand of nuffiness, though – well, that’s just silly.

    ‘Senior Constable Ben Bjarnesen with the Queensland police LGBTI liaison program said this could result in someone being referred to by their “dead name” — the name a person used before they transitioned.’

    This has to be a pisstake.

    ‘Hello? Is this the cops? Yes, I used to be Barry Smith. Yep. Used to be. Yep. The bloke who did all those years in prison, and who now lives next to a preschool. Yeah, all that’s over now. That’s my dead name. On the strength of this phone call I want you to update my records all over Queensland (and the other databases as well) with my new name. Helena.’

    KD, I’ve made this point before.

    How can senior police and national security people agree that people’s birth certificates can be changed, their gender can be changed, their passports can be changed, just because they claim to be in the throes of a gender identity crisis?

    What a boon for terrorists, serial killers and just plain crims with a brain.

    Still, I rather suspect that prudent law enforcement agencies will be keeping the old records. ‘Gloria’, formerly ‘Billy’, will still have the same fingerprints and DNA.

  139. Knuckle Dragger

    Well, this is unexpected:

    ‘The Andrews Government will almost double its funding to the hotel quarantine inquiry after bureaucrats buried inquiry staff in hundreds of thousands of pages of documents.

    ‘The Herald Sun can reveal the inquiry board, chaired by retired judge Jennifer Coate, has sought $2.7 million in extra funding to hire more staff to wade through more than 200,000 documents submitted to the inquiry. As late as Friday afternoon, the Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions, were still dumping documents into evidence.’

    ‘The move, which happened after the final witness Premier Daniel Andrews had appeared, meant no-one could be cross-examined on any new evidence which might be uncovered, and led a clearly-annoyed Ms Coate to question the delay.’

    Enquiry time. Best to bury it in every irrelevant document your Department’s produced in the past fifty years. You know, for the big picture.

    ‘As counsel assisting the inquiry prepares to make closing submissions on Monday, it can be revealed:
    *The inquiry’s initial $3 million budget will be increased to $5.7 million.
    *In an additional hit to the taxpayer, an army of 30 lawyers attended the inquiry to represent ministers, secretaries and senior officials.
    *Each minister was represented by a Queen’s Counsel costing at least $10,000 a day, along with two other lawyers each.
    *Twelve Queen’s Counsel or Senior Counsel were on the taxpayer payroll, often cross-examining Government witnesses.’

    Nice work if you can get it.

  140. Knuckle Dragger

    ‘How can senior police and national security people agree that people’s birth certificates can be changed, their gender can be changed, their passports can be changed, just because they claim to be in the throes of a gender identity crisis?’

    joh,

    Because senior police and national security people stopped being police and national security people years, if not decades ago.

    They’re ‘managers’ now. Weathervaning around dependent on government mood, and on the hunt for stuff to load onto their CV when their next contract extension comes around.

    Exhibit A: VicPol. Cornelius is ex AFP and has thus never actually locked up a crook, so he doesn’t know anything outside of symposia complete with butchers’ paper, whiteboard markers, syndicate groups and inclusion steering committees.

    Patten is brand, spanking new and feels he owes Gummint for giving him the job – but not enough to face the daily pressers.

    Nugent has a pile of skeletons in the closet (allegedly and apparently) which he’s buried under knifing his competition for promotion. He’s also new, this is his reward for selling out the last 20 years and he’s keen to make an impression for his next tilt upwards, which will be a Chief Commissioner’s gig in another State.

    It’s never about their people, just about them. And that’s why they tolerate this gender diversity compulsion.

    Well Paul Keating did say he was redistributing the wealth by punitive taxation and a level playing field tilted to China . I do hope his Chinese rewards are to his liking.

    I thought at the time that it was odd how such a clever treasurer could not see the effect a supposedly level playing field would have on the country considering that no other country did the same. With the benefit of hindsight it’s easy to detect other patterns.

    Laurence Fox: Controversial actor launches political party to ‘fight the culture wars’
    Politicians, he wrote, had “lost touch” with people and “public institutions now work to an agenda beyond their main purpose”.

    “Our modern United Kingdom was borne out of the respectful inclusion of so many individual voices,” he said.

    “It is steeped in the innate values of families and communities, diverse in the truest sense but united in the want and need to call this island home.

    “The people of the United Kingdom are tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against.”

    Fox, who has been a fierce critic of the BBC, sparked controversy when he said suggestions of “racism” over how the Duchess of Sussex was treated in some quarters was “boring”.

    Because senior police and national security people stopped being police and national security people years, if not decades ago.

    After our top spooks claim that ‘right wing’ terrorism is a big deal, you have to wonder. That said, it is possible that they are saying this to deflect attention from the real targets.

    They are not completely stupid, believe it or not. It is quite possible that they are lulling the suspects into a false sense of security.

    Donald Trump: ‘I’m Not Joking’ About Debate Drug Test for Joe Biden

    President Donald Trump said Sunday that he was not joking about the need for a drug test ahead of the first presidential debate with former Vice President Joe Biden.

    No charges will be laid against the operators of a backyard slaughterhouse at Koo Wee Rup after the Department of Agriculture closed its investigation into reports of cruelty and biohazard breaches.

    Footage of sheep being butchered in a garage on the outskirts of Melbourne surfaced last month, sparking complaints from animal welfare advocates.

    The footage showed four people and animals, including rats and kittens, coming and going from the makeshift slaughterhouse floor as one sheep appears to take more than five minutes to die, thrashing its tethered legs as it lay on its back in a metal cradle without first being stunned

    I should have posted this two days ago:

    One of the last survivors of the first Darwin air raid is 100 this Saturday

    Brian Winspear, originally from Tasmania, was an air gunner and wireless operator in Hudson bombers in World War II.

    On the day of the raid his aircraft had been ordered out of the islands to Australia’s north as the Japanese Army and Navy inexorably advanced south.

    Crammed with more than 20 evacuees, the Hudson, normally only flying with a crew of five, made it back to Darwin in the early hours of that fateful Thursday. Only a few hours later, the town was under heavy attack.

    At the RAAF aerodrome Brian took shelter in a slit trench 150m from the hangers which were one of the main targets for the 188 Japanese fighters and bombers. He survived the second raid of 54 bombers which came in around midday. Over the war he flew several hundred missions, eventually being commissioned as an officer; training as a navigator, and serving in Vultee Vengeance dievbombers in New Guinea.

    Brian was demobilized in late 1945. He went on to business opportunities following the war, which included opening Innkeepers, a chain of hotels, eventually becoming 20 motels in five states. He married Shirley, later a successful painter, and was awarded an Order of Australia for his services to the tourism industry and the community. He has visited Darwin many times for the Bombing of Darwin Commemoration, often wearing his old uniform, and recently unveiled a plaque to his old squadrons as part of a joint Order of Australia and Darwin City Council commemoration.

    Brian still lives in Hobart, Tasmania, and although this Saturday will be a quieter celebration than he would have liked due to Covid-19, he and Shirley will still see some guests and raise a glass to a successful life. Here’s to a great Australian who served his country in war and peace for a century.

    It’s estimated that the deferral would save the ABC $5 million.

    There is no information as to whether a similar deferral of pay increments has been put to the ABC’s ‘stars’ who are, of course, engaged under secret contracts.

    An Australian National University COVID-19 expert has claimed Victoria had quietly adopted an elimination strategy.

    Speaking to ABC News Breakfast this morning, epidemiologist and infectious diseases specialist Dr Sanjaya Senanayake said the state appeared to be trying to wipe out the virus altogether.

    “If you look at what Victoria is doing, even though they’re not saying it, they seem to be going for elimination,” he told the program

    “Because if this was about control, this was learning to live with small numbers of the virus, when you get to the next stage, which is less than five cases per day, as a rolling 14-day average, if it were just about control, then you would skip step 3 and you’d go straight to the final step, or possibly even COVID-normal.

    “But Victoria is not doing that. It is looking for periods of no cases for at least 14 days before they start to talk about going to the final step and then no cases for 28 days before going to COVID-normal.”

    Dr Senanayake said if Victoria succeeded, it would be easier to lift other state border restrictions.

    “With regard to travel and trade within the country and looking at bubbles, regionally, internationally – everything becomes a lot more attractive,” he said.

  213. Cassie of Sydney

  216. How can Trump concurrently be a tax cheat and be broke?

    Because he wasted the money from the fraud on loss-making businesses. He is betting that he can flog the assets for more than the $300M in debt. It’s like that story about how Bunnings is mainly a real estate play.

    In other words, his business empire is full of deadweight and he’s gambling that he can avoid the creditors long enough to stay ahead. He has had plenty of bankruptcies when this strategy has failed in the past. This is what he does, he’s a con man.
