    Only a very few Victorians so far have had the courage to actively do something about their plight. There seem to be a lot of moaners and only a few heavy lifters.
    Why should the rest of Australia help,a mob of slackers?

    I have been letting people know that this bill was being presented as it was not mentioned in msn anywhere and the average person does not know about it . Victorians have too much on their minds trying to manage Dan’s rules as well as keeping family going under present circumstances . It has already passed the lower house and extends extreme powers to April 2021.
    Reignite Democracy have put out petitions ,bombarded the MPs who are likely to Vote for it with thousands of emails ,encouraging people to email their rep. and also petitioning governor. That was an extremely good message but how many will see it?

    How does Fat Karen pass the fitness test.

    The comment by the guy recoding it at the end of the video sums up the whole story.
    “If we’d actually broken the law they would have choke slammed us”.

    From the Premier’s press conference as reported by Sky News:

    “Melbourne’s controversial curfew will end tonight as Premier Daniel Andrews announced the next step for Victoria.

    “It will be lifted from 5 am tomorrow,” Mr Andrews said.

    “While the curfew comes off, that tonight is the last night, we have decided that a new fine, a penalty almost to $5,000, just less than $5,000, will apply for any unlawful outdoor gatherings or indoor gatherings.

    “It mirrors the arrangements we have put in place for people travelling to regional Victoria and potentially taking the virus with them without a lawful reason.

    “If you are having a party at your house, that is not lawful.”

    In the video at the link, the Premier says (again) that “home environment is the most risky environment” (from approx 1:30) based on what he claims is irrefutable evidence. Does this little, small-minded person of presumably masculine gender, have no grasp of the fact that 75% of fatalities have been residents of nursing homes, not private homes?

    So he declares that parties are illegal. Ye gods! And people claim that fundamentalist Christians are “killjoys”? Check the socialist control-freaks instead!

    More on the specious idea that home is the most dangerous place to be for contracting Covid-19.

    The DHHS website lists Hig Risk Locations on a special page.

    NONE are private homes!

    But in nursing homes (those reporting 5 or more cases as per the same DHHS page) there have been 615 fatalities out of Viktoriastan’s total of 872 = over 70%.

    The urge to Puritanism seems to be strong among the fascist left.

    Except for their own internecine bed swapping for political advantage, of course. Rules for thee, but not for me!

    So you can exercise for one hour at night for 5km around your home alone, wearing a face mask. Big deal. For anything else, VicStasi will still throat grapple you to the ground and if you comply then regardless of your compliance they fine you if you even look askance at them.

    The fundamental question remains – how has this mini-Putin been able to get away with it? Many are complicit – the crossbenchers, the free-to-air- television stations, the AMA, the teachers, the academics, the psychiatrists, the welfare people, the lawyers, the human rights advocates etc etc. The silence has been deafening, and it goes deep into society.

    At least Andrews now has to wear the ignominy of being lectured on proper conduct by…Peter Beattie.

    Disgustingly snide comment at 1:30 from one of the male coppers, too.

    “Good job guys, you should be proud of yourselves, keeping the nation healthy”

    ps: apologies for the derailing. The posted vid is very good.

    And there is no going back to ‘normal’ as the UN says.

    None of these new freedom killing laws will be deleted.

    Not without a fight.

    I might nominate Dan for the Sydney Peace Prize. He’s a shoe-in.

  16. Joanna Smythe

    The enablers of all this are the media.

    It’s necessary for the significant majority of Victorians to want freedom first, at the moment this seems not to be the case so there is nothing other Australians can do to help. If you are in Vic and desire freedom it would seem your best option would be to bail out of the state whenever you can. If that isn’t possible at least try to urge your fellow prisoners to desire for freedom, and best of luck with that.

    What is happening is simply inevitable given the current power structure.

    When Citizens are disarmed, they are powerless.

    Those who are powerless, in the end will always be abused.

    Because it rhymes with 1930’s Germany.

    Those that are in power believe that there is an existential threat.

    The danger of the supposed threat is supported by the best available “science”.

    The media and groups such the Police come to believe in the threat.

    A large body of the population also come to believe in the threat.

    All work in concert, all work with a clear conscience, because the are doing their bit to fight the threat.

    All this unlocks a Pandora’s Box of what might be done to fight the threat.

    I used to be slightly baffled at Europe’s most cultured society falling into depravity, not anymore.

    It’s a shame Dan doesn’t just come out and lecture ethnic minorities about not gathering in large groups in homes, because they are the ones doing this and the rest of us have to pay the price. But that would be racist.
    Loving how he’s lifted the curfew but increased the fine to $5k. That’ll teach us!
