By comparison, China is subsidising their carriers to the hilt, Air NZ has been drawing on a government loan, and Korea has also helped to provide assistance to some carriers.
Government support is essential for the airline sector to survive whilst pandemic control measures are in place and then regrow once the control measures have been lifted. I wish our federal governmetn was doing far more for our aviation sector.

But the main part of my argument was to debunk the notion that if we just dropped all controls and essentially turn a blind eye to the virus then everything would get back to normal. As the US has shown this is not the case.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has hit out at her Queensland counterpart for "rubbing in" the Maroons' State of Origin win via text message instead of taking the state border issue seriously.
Ms Berejiklian said on Sunday night she sent a text to Annastacia Palaszczuk to congratulate her on her re-election as Queensland Premier and reiterate her desire to speak about the border closure to Sydney.
But she said she received no reply until last night when Ms Palaszczuk bragged about Queensland defeating NSW in the Origin I match.
"She replied 'Queenslander, great game' or something to that effect," Ms Berejiklian said today.
"She didn't mention borders or thanks for the congratulations.
"I didn't know whether to be shocked or bemused frankly."

What Gladys is saying the woman up north needs some psychological help.

Says it all about where her priorities lie,here she goes again with her childish mind games.
Didnt see her respond to not being allowed into the theme park last week,maybe they should have let her in & locked her up in fantasy land,obviously thats where she lives most of the time.
Again i say theres no doubt the victorian govt has a lot to answer for with the hotel quarantine f up but at least now there seems to be a genuine process in opening up again whereas with queen p every day brings nothing except excuses with no relevance to any facts.

Victoria has now scored 15 ducks in a row. 15000-20000 tests a day. Still not good enough for the Queen of QLD or the King of WA.
Just following the science. Got to protect our cane toads from getting covid.

but dodgy anna chukka is allowing up to 100% crowd numbers at Suncorp on Wed night at leagie game. There could be up to 52,500 at game with absolutely no social distancing whatsoever.

Word is, they got greedy with ticket prices (just like with wallabies last Sat-dumped good seats for $49 at last minute) & now dumping seats to try & fill the place + public servants are being given free tickets. Just lucky they got a pay rise so they can buy rum & cokes for $12 a can.

I think WA have always said 28 days of no community transmission to allow free travel between states.

Who cares about WA and QLD, they have not proven themself of being capable of handling this pandemic be best if borders did remain shut I don’t want dirty QLD ppl in my state low testing rates for all we know it’s tuning rampart through QLD they’re also incapable of managing this virus. VIC is the same at least DA had been willing to learn NSW playbook and by all accounts could be very well under control down there.

I was happy to wait for the WA border to open, just hope the TOOLS stay out.

Guess that's why Queensland has never carried their weight in International Arrivals, instead leaving the bulk of their citizens to enter via NSW, and why other states continue to lock out people from NSW, notwithstanding they have demonstrated, time and time again, they can get on top of any outbreaks while keeping their economy going. You're more than welcome to pull the DOTRS international arrival data and compare it yourself, Ladboy, and what it'll show, is those states that have locked out Victorians - and NSWelshmen in particular - are at the same time relying on NSW to act as the major point of entry to Australia for their states' citizens, and carry the lions share of the load.

Queensland - and WA to an even greater extent - are scared shyteless about having an outbreak because their systems have never been tested.

IT's all well and good for Mark McGoose to crow "We've gone 7 months without COVID in our WA community", but what he fails to mention, is that if it gets into the community, they've got zero evidence they can handle the outbreak. Gladys, for all her faults, has demonstrated the exact opposite, several times over and kept her states' economy going. That's something no other Premier can lay claim to.

We did have a outbreak from 3 females who went to Melbourne on a "shopping expedition" and party hosting and lied on their border declaration claiming to have only been in Sydney.

That was not handled well at all by Queen P. She failed miserably.

Anyone got any ideas why the latest Auckland outbreak which has been shown to have originated from Defence Force personnel at a quarantine facility has made such little news in Australia?

Probably the same reason Dan and his team kept the Hotel Quarantine/BLM outbreak under wraps for a couple weeks, blaming workplace lunch rooms and rogue citizens as the cause. They hoped the outbreak would be contained before the truth would be uncovered.

Deception however seems to make the average Victorian more hungry to vote for him though.

That wasn't an outbreak. Not even close!

That was three skanks with faces like a squashed turd thinking the rules didn't apply to them - and again - Qld got lucky they didn't cause a real outbreak with 50+ cases - and they've avoided that by refusing to carry their fair share of the load of international arrivals, preferring to let NSW carry the can, while beating their chest and declaring Queensland hospitals are for Queenslanders! And, for the record, I consider myself a Queenslander, but after Anna-Stayaways proclamations, decisions - and her attitude - I wouldn't pi$$ on her if she were on fire. Qld v Everyone else is acceptable at Origin level only.
