    Normally one only sees such circular reasoning from economists.

    D’ya think we might potentially follow that model soon? It’s like they’ve put new dymo stickers on the Great Barrier Reef models. ‘Well OK you guys, this reef’ may not be dead, but that one and maybe that other one are potentially dead.
    Never mind, if sucking up this bullshit gets us parole and the Dickhead saves face with Xi, we can be happy … at least until Nit lockdown starts.

    Maybe the journo should move to Antarctica, which is free of the virus and therefore even safer than Victoria, by that logic.

  4. The report forgot to highlight what a wonderful life it is down here in COVID-safe Danistan.

    Could have quoted TAFKAS(?) from a couple of weeks ago as well: “I’m in Melbourne and things have never been better.”

    New modelling suggests Victoria may be the safest state from COVID-19

    “Modelling” = mathematically disguised guesswork

    Has his modelling been back-verified against past real data?

    Can the modelling be trusted? How far back can it give us answers?

    The modelling will show Antarctica to be a prime COVID hotspot due to limited testing.

    I note dangerous Dan is now refrering to the “hard border” between metropolitan Melbourne and the rest of the state. Not opening any time soon.

    The report shows Victoria has the lowest risk of spreading the virus compared to any other state, with a transmission potential of 0.56.

    Not in reality, of course.
    In reality, the risk across a state is the product of the transmission potential (as characterised by the reproduction number), the population density of viral hosts (which is presently highest in Victoria), and the proportion of the population susceptible to the infection. The risk also depends on factors which may stratify the risk, such as age or co-morbidity.

    You can only wonder how he was p[aid to produce tripe.

    Can tell you now, the border is not that hard.

    I guess there’s a reason people were whipped into a frenzy about the three cases in Shepparton.

    Dan can continue to play firm but fair dad.

  12. notafan

    Pointless dropping 5km limit if you can’t visit family and if only 2 hours allowed for exercise.

    Triumph of the Dill, actually.

    Python reference:

    And the Pythons were channeling Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe and Peter Selllars, who, in turn were out-doing Franz Kafka.

    Ghenghis Dan seems to be channeling all of that and something a bit more “sulphurous”.

  15. Bruce

    Leni Riefenstahl; nice Claytons “Godwin”.

  16. Entropy

    The risk anywhere in Australia is bugger all.

  17. Fair Shake

    We are a city divided. But I guess that is what Dingbat Dan and his cronies wanted.

    Gotta say those Vic cross-benchers would have to be the lowest form of life.
