I’m a doctor and my advice is don’t come back

From:

Asked whether April 26 was a realistic return date for the Premier, Mr Merlino said his doctors were yet to make an assessment.

“Dan will be back based on doctor’s advice,” he said.

Of course, my doctorate is in economics and this advice is based on the economic catastrophe Andrews has overseen, which his successor will have to deal with. Went past my favourite construction site on St Kilda Road this morning, where they are building the billion dollar station at the Shrine, and there was not a worker in site (sight). Wonder why.

    How easy is it for State Labor governments who have 20 year reigns to do a Democrat election? How do people as ignorant as Palachook get elected over Campbell Newman who actually accomplished more in his three years than Beattie and Bligh did in their twenty.

    My sides are in orbit. Good one.

    Gender diversity and unconscious bias training.

    To be fair, we didn’t elect Kirner.

    Funny how quiet the premier is, isn’t it? Especially after a year of Ever Givening the ship of state at Spring Street dailies.

    Almost like he might be avoiding awkward questions about stairs in Portsea.

    Her 1st election victory was based on a union scare campaign about privatisation.

    Her 2nd election victory was a reward for guiding us safely through the covid pandemic.

    This is where compulsory voting leads.

    Steve just accept that the majority of your fellow Viktorains love commos.

    What a luxury.

    Most workers have to be back when their compo/insurance runs out, or run the gauntlet of Centrelink.

    Some animals are more equal than others, it seems.

    The return will be an exquisitely orchestrated melodrama which will be spun as a latter day version of Douglas Bader and/or FDR on the Yarra – it will be truly vomitorious.

    I have written to the Victorian Governor nominating the stairs for an award, possibly bravery or a meritorious service & note that they have been described as part of a ‘rental private residence’ & ‘not of Lindsay Fox’s main residence’ and wonder if Mr Fox is amenable to a plaque being affixed to the granny flat stair which reads …

    ‘On these steps the socialist fuhrer of Victoria fell, leaving the state less bereft of direction (which had previously been towards a gender-indeterminate bankruptcy), and also the elderly able to breathe that small bit easier, knowing for a brief time the man who led – but was completely unaware of vital details about hotel security – was replaced by nameless members of his team, who also, in true Sgt Schultz fashion ‘knew nothing’ of how to run anything as well…’

    I’m taking up a collection to transplant those steps to the premier’s office, hoping they can perform that vital function again:

    helping Victoria to move one step nearer to stopping being a repressive & vicious police-state

    I heard he was going to be back in 2 weeks (unfortunately).

    Fellow Victims, I mean Victorians love them. There are Belt and Road initiatives everywhere. Highway expansion, Tunnels (apparently) public service expansion, what’s not to like from Chairman Andrews and Xi. As long as we refrain from quarantine/ lockdown criticism, Australia Day celebrations, and ANZAC parades Melbourne is a beautiful world where the sun shines all the time. Vikpol are A number 1.
    ( sounds of boots running up stairs and door being kicked in. )
    I should go now. Tell my family I …..
    (Sound of horses hoofs, larguing and a scuffle, sounds fade)
    And now back to the tennis.

    “Victorian voters keep electing ALP into government expecting a different result.
    Cain, Kirner, Bracks, Andrews…”

    The people of Victoria (some of whom may still even be Heritage Australians) have learned that they can vote themselves the contents of the Treasury, and that it is Labor who will give it to them.

    I heard he was going to be back in 2 weeks
    Well I heard he was going to be weak in two backs.

    Victoria has been a much better place since Dikator Dan removed himself from our presence. Surely the Ministers in his cabinet must also be breathing a sigh of relief? The man is out of control and has inflicted untold damage on the State’s economy and the psychological well being of its citizens. Put him on permanent sick leave please.

    Also a blessed relief that Hot Button Sutton has (for the time being at least) returned to his former obscurity.

    Bolte, Hamer, Thompson, Kennett, Baillieu, Napthine

    punctuated by periods of sheer terror
    Cain, Kirner, Bracks, Andrews

    Having personally diagnosed Deadly Dan the Chi-Com Man’s case, I have come to the unmistakeable conclusion that the medical problem here, is that the bludger is still breathing.

    The only solution is to give him a far bigger, stronger dose of Wuhan Bat Soup – and maybe the judicious application of a couple of sharp taps from a deftly-swung shovel to the back of the thick skull, might possibly prove efficacious?

    Back in the “good old days”, the wharfies Union used to treat many such cases in Victoria with their impeccable personalised fitting of specialist therapeutic footwear – generally made of concrete – to the feet of the sufferer, followed by a vigorous dip in the Yarra.

    As I recall, they never subsequently had a single customer complaint.

    There’s something to be said for the old ways of doing things.

    This is also my medical opinion.
