So, 4 cases in SA today. Does Queen P slam the border shut now and wait for another 28 days?! Not sure how she is working it.

McGowan already threatened WA residents not to leave WA, as he will close the border without notice if covid was detected interstate.

Looks like they came out of hotel quarantine. So I guess Sky News is dispatching Peta Credlin to attack the state government because itís obviously their fault, going by the Dan A standard??

But it was also the ADF who were involved in SA hotel quarantine, and according to the self appointed experts that shouldíve 100% prevented any transmission out of hotel quarantine. How could this have happened??

She will give them a ultimatum of 48hrs to give her a report of where, why and how. If they donít, then she will have no choice but to put up the wall. Like the Kiwi cases, sometimes itís not possible to find the source.

Itís this click of the fingers that is destroying many many households, most certainly many originate at QF/VA/Rex groups.

What a grub McGowan is.

People currently en-route to WA (from SA) are going to land assuming there is no requirement to isolate then get told otherwise. This is why they donít allow you to film or take pictures in the police check area at Perth Airport. Imagine the tears and anger that will occur today.

Probably the same reason why here in NZ we never hear much about what is happening with COVID in Australia. If I didnít read it here, then according to most NZers, Australia is a COVID hell hole, completely out of control because what is happened in Melbourne is what is happening everywhere else.

COVID in Australia isnít all that important to NZ. COVID in NZ shouldnít be important in Australia.

I mean, should the fact that Type 1 diabetics are up in arms over an advertising campaign really make headline news is Australia?? (Unless you think it should, which means Australians care more about NZ than what is made out).

I hope someone sneaks a camera in and films the heartache when they’re told to test and then taken away to isolate for 14 days.

This is why QF and VA are screwed for the foreseeable future. Open one week, closed the next.

It appears the only two states willing to work together with rolling daily cases is NSW and VIC. That alone is not going to get the crew bases in those two states up and running significantly.

So Adelaide has 3 cases....will Queen P shut out that city.....how can any airline operate under such uncertainty.

With only 40 days to Christmas, a few more cases will blow the two 14 day cycles required by QLD.

If you think that trained ADF personnel are as much of a risk as unemployed nobodies hired after a 5 minute whatsapp interview, given next to zero extra training and then end up rooting those in the actual quarantine, then good luck to you.
Nobody has suggested any policy is foolproof, but some slices of cheese have larger holes than others.

Wonder is Rex jet has spare cash for extended border closure. Reality is this is how it will be until a proven vaccine.

If google's to be believed deaths are:
- VIC 819 NSW 53 TAS 13....rest of state/territories single digits.

From the initial mess that was the Ruby Princess one would have expected NSW would be the wasteland of Australia, not so. Victoria is. By a factor of 15 times or more.
Unless you're a moron there's gotta be a reason for that.

Anyone who thinks Chairman Dan is "the man" please go and explain it to the families and extended families - all 819 of them - why Victoria has been so successful thanks to Dan the Man.

On jetblast, US thread a video of Bill Maher discussing the Democrats conundrum of why people won't vote for them, concepts such as "woke", "PC", "closed minds", "tribalism" and "common sense" get mentioned.
For anyone capable of thought and consideration well worth watching - and get a few laughs as well.

819 deaths all because of a "creeping assumption".
Someone was responsible for signing the contracts for the $30million hotel contracts - no "creeping assumption" there - on the basis of no signed agreement, no money.

Just like how the feds essentially neglected aged care and Victorians suffered the consequences for it. More to the story than just a bunch of security personnel.

Appears likely haven't won the senate.

If Trump was so bad and the Democrats platform so good why didn't they get the clean sweep and absolute control?
Because not enough people voted for them.

Why......??

I hope the PM, who by now needs to grow a set and step in gives WA a lot of pressure, Maybe not actually the closure only got a 5 second mention on the news here on the East.

In lighter more interesting news Qantas turns 100 today and Queen P up in the wicked North is celebrating hosting the largest sporting crowd in the world for 2020 Wednesday night. Go the Blues.
