So the Brisbane lock down ends at 12:00pm today. Great news. Now how long until the other states lift restrictions on entry?

Feds made it hotspot. So I guess after that is reversed?

Who wants to visit WA anyway? It’s full of red dirt and bogans. Let them keep it.

So, in essence Queen P has successfully obliterated plans over easter for many Queenslanders going interstate. Some may have taken a chance and not cancelled their bookings. For those that did, any efforts to rebook are now met with huge increases in costs.
It is ok though. QLD is "good to go" over Easter......... as long as you do not leave QLD!
Effectively shuttered Queenslanders in to holidaying in QLD all the while keeping the tourists from down south heading to all but the "hotspots"......
Perhaps she is smarter than the average bear.

No she expects the Feds to cough up for her actions - after all it was THEM who destroyed the QLD tourism with the rolling border closures at whim. Naughty, nasty, bad Feds!

Anyone who ever thought it was the QLD Queen who closed the borders hasn't been spun the spin adequately....so far.

Just watched Jeanette Young on the news and you couldn’t make this sh1t up.

Apparently the rest of the state are wearing masks because ‘people in Brisbane are now free to travel across the state’. So there’s enough of a risk that people 1600km away need to wear a mask, but not enough to keep potential spreaders in one place. There is no pretence at logic or policy anymore.

but they know voters will remember being locked up for Easter 2021 at the next election.
so no lockdown extension.

happy when the others were being locked down, not so much themselves.

Some of us do have jobs there...Signed on for duty last night and was immediately asked "Would you consider remaining in WA for your RDO's just in case McGowan locks out NSW as well?". UUhh, yeah, naahhh. I'd sooner lose a months pay than give McGoose the satisfaction. And now, if you'll excuse me, I need to check in for my flight home tomorrow night....

As it is, they've lost all bar a couple of the Queensland contingent elected to stay in WA, the others flew home and will take their chances about getting back in. Our families are worth more than a few $$ and given how most of the FIFO crew have been screwed over, both by WA and their respective payroll departments with various living allowances there's no love lost there anymore so it'll be interesting to see how many shifts aren't able to be covered in the next month or two, particularly if McGoose does include NSW in his latest tantrum.

Didn't the exact same thing happen at Christmas but in PPRUNE's beloved state of NSW?

Yeah Gladys closed things down when she had to, Queen P at whim so she could spew "saved all the Queenslander you must vote for me" as her re-election propaganda.

IMHO one's been a pretty good leader - not perfect but no-one ever is - regards CV19, the other couldn't find the word in the dictionary.
Let you work out which is which.

The ‘exact’ same thing? You mean a lockdown of the entirety of Sydney for a handful of cases? No, it didn’t. We did lockdown about 300K people for a super spreader event that seeded 30 people on one day though. Meanwhile the rest of Sydney was pretty sensible and got on with life.

I have never really had an opinion either way about Gladys but it does seem she has the most practical approach of all the state leaders. I did like her comment about NSW residents not having to worry about being locked out of their home state. Gave them confidence to travel.

Sydney was declared a hotspot and tourism came to a standstill from Christmas for a month, lockdown was over early to facilitate the holiday season but the damage was done. Just like the current Queensland situation.

I heard queen P speaking this morning,of course she was praising herself up but 1 thing she said really intrigued me
'If u feel sick or have any symptoms,STAY HOME & GET TESTED'!
I thought 1 had to go to a testing site to get tested but obviously not in queen P land,she didnt give the number to call though🙊

Those of us not on the northern beaches were largely unaffected by the lockdown. That other states were complete numpties and closed their borders to people from communities with no community transmission (like my relatives from Wagga who were trying to get to Brisbane) is not an issue with NSW.

So yes, people on the northern beaches had to change their travel plans. That’s still better than having the entirety of Sydney having to change their plans such as occurred with the Brisbane lock down.
