April - Entire world's airlines sent to the brink of survival. Flights stopped. Aircraft grounded, pilots, CC and support staff stood down. No international flights for a year? The world grinds to a halt.
April - Virgin AustralIa on the brink of bankruptcy. But it's only the first to fall. We know there will be many others.
Arpril 17 - Three Chinese government-owned airlines emerge as the white knights to take over Virgin Australia, at rock bottom fire sale price. (The endgame comes into focus)

Well, my friends, do you see the picture here, the irony of how this pandemic plays out? Who suffers and who profits? Who started the mess and who will benefit from it? Who will lose and who will win? We understand that Australian Foreign Investment Review Board has expanded its powers to specifically prevent foreign (PC purists, please read "Chinese") take-over of undervalued Australian assets, as a result of COVID. It seems Virgin may slip under the radar.
tee hee, let’s release a virus so we can buy a company with $5b Of debt, priceless!

8 posts and you have it figured. Impressive. What about global warming? Inner workings of the female mind? Why is there air? All critical questions you can apply your theories to

Dont forget that chinese kids get taught during their education that the chinese culture is superior over all the rest of this planet. They simply despise every other culture.

I think it is time that the US and Europe should work more together to oppose the yellow plague.
what a disgustingly racist post.

Thats a big negative.

J Citizen . Well said!

Now, back to the topic. The OP's comments are certainly valid. We have been experiencing a chinese take over across all parts of the world by stealth for a number of years. Recent events may very well of been constructed or if not, will at least be used to their benefit in the greater long term plan.
Stop thinking VA is their motivating reason and more as an example of what we can expect into the future. Depressions are not always bad news, for those who have money tucked away come out the other end in a pretty good position.

You can tell there's a lockdown in progress, this thread reeks of too many glasses of red and no one to vent to, whether it be racist rants or conspiracy theories about free market economics.

It sure does. People clutching at straws and failing to see reality. Hate messages in inbox. Just incredible.

Well you decide if China levelled with the WHO and the rest of the world.

On 31December, China notified WHO about a strange pneumonia - cause unknown.
Further reports until 3 January - causal agent not identified
Then China isolated a Coronavirus on 7 January.





Except for this...

China was isolating coronavirus from patients at least as far back as 26 December.
Given our experience with SARS and MERS, I think the world would have been interested in knowing about another deadly coronavirus.
That 2 week delay was very significant given what happened next.

Its you that thinks it’s wrong.
I worked with them for over 20 years and would have been called a “Gweilo” (Ghost Man - ie westerner ) either to my face or by them talking to each other about me within earshot at least half a dozen times a day. It would be the equivalent of me calling them “Chinks” here. Did it bother me?? Not once.
Some of us aren’t so thin skinned...

And the fact that, knowing full well what was happening (it was obvious to us in Hong Kong by mid January) they chose not to upset everybody’s Lunar New Year holidays and allowed 5 million to make a run for it before doing anything to stop the spread.
The stupid thing from Australia’s perspective, was to treat visitors from Hong Kong differently to visitors from the Mainland , while HK had not closed their border. What do you think a huge % of the smart ones did??!!

Conspiracy? Absolutely! How many of their leaders has had the virus?
Also, strange that the Hong Kong riots have stopped.

Here you are. The words spoken by a man of the world. The leftist swing in Australia revolts me.

Yes China implemented the most draconian quarantine measures the world has seen in the 700 years since the Black Plague. But only after allowing 5 million to get out of Hubei and ensure the horse had well and truely bolted.

At the same time, China
Complained that other countries were implementing far less draconian measures by banning flights from China, and persuaded the WHO to repeat the same nonsense.
Stripped tons of PPE from the rest of the world
Concealed the true epidemiology of the disease
Delayed approving a visit to China by a WHO field team while the composition of this team was debated

Meanwhile, the WHO
Peddled the same nonsense that countries banning flights to China was not necessary or helpful
Dragged its feet designating COVID a pandemic when it was clear to everyone else that it was.
Refused to take a question about Taiwan in order not to upset China


Meanwhile, Australian universities were paying their Chinese students to have a 2 week holiday in Thailand etc to get around the border restrictions, and urged the government to relax the restrictions

Some of you need to do some research on just 'who' the Director General of the WHO is. Who he is a puppet of, his politics and why a non-medical practitioner is the DG.

A cursory google search on "Director General of the WHO" and "puppet" is startling. Thank you for the tip.

Since we're on the subject, google "WHO", "Taleb", and "Bloomberg. Very interesting.

Sorry I can't post links yet.

These comments coming from a country that has been more than happy to sell it self (literally) ton by ton to China are really too much

Where do you think all the cash comes from in Australia? From the Chinese buying your exports.............. and if you want the economy to recover you'll have to go back and ask them nicely to buy some more.......

I don't believe they would be dragging with them over 700 convicts and only 300 officers if they were going to invade anyone (fight battles/go to war).

Out of the 11 ships in the first fleet, 6 were convict transports. Since when do you use so many convicts/convict ships to invade ?



It doesn't sound like an invasion to me.
ahaha...Worst, sounds like a virus!
Body is not claimed, let's go for it.
