Annastacia just got herself the Pfizer jab, despite being over 50, because "I have to go to the olympics".

If positives detected in HQ are not then heled in HQ, then the HQ cannot leak.
Good point but I suspect it was more a case of the Commonwealth saying "We're not doing so you'll have to" - it's no different in terms of dodging their responsibility as in "I don't hold a hose" and "We didn't do anything because the States never asked us for help" (he says, as half the bloody country is on fire).

Politics/Party aside, every government has stuff ups but this Fed Govt (i.e. the PM) spouts any BS to get out from under, laced with weasel words such as cohort, going forward, seeking to do something, in the such and such space, then does nothing, then when it turns to crap, blames someone else.

If I remember correctly, the evacuees from Wuhan initially, were taken to Xmas Island and quarantined - how many of them spread Covid into the community. I heard MANY stories at the time of people arriving at international terminals throughout the country no checks whatsoever were undertaken - airports are a Commonwealth responsibility. HQ was only ever intended as a stop-gap. Sure, several states have had some cock ups, Victoria isn't alone, WA had something similar but were lucky that it didn't lead to a second wave.

All in all though, overall, even with lock-downs, we're in a far better place than most other countries (except perhaps NZ).

Everyone going to olympics is getting pfizer unless they have already had the the first AZ shot. Its 12 weeks between the AZ shots and only 6 between pfizer

But hey dont let the facts get in the way of your rant

She could have had the first A-Z shot weeks ago. Her arguments why she didn't do not hold water. Her example to the people of Qld is terrible.

Oh please... she quite clearly hasn't wanted to get the AZ jab from the get go. First she used the excuse that she's waiting for the flu jab, and now that's changed to "...in the event..." that she goes to the Olympics. If she didn't have that little excuse I'm sure she would have held off until the Pfizer supply was adequate enough for the over 50's in Oct.

Why's she even going to the Olympics? Potential Brisbane bid announcement? Hardly a reason to leave the country in this supposed state of emergency she has us in. Hell, crew can't even get back from Melbourne right now without being forced into two weeks quarantine thanks to her.

Her excuses are pathetic. She could have had the A-Z vaccine 10 weeks ago and still have had the flu vax in the meantime. Now she brings up a dog bite and that she may have to go to Olympics which sounds like rubbish. The PM is not going and neither should she.

Hey, common. How else is she supposed to announce the squandering of a few Billion on something we don't want, while the Health Dept is reportedly 600 Million in the red and going backwards, unless she goes on the junket?
Be reasonable...

Ditto re the absolute BS reasons why she and the chihuahua couldn't have started their vaccinations earlier. Absolute wank.

Maybe you should be looking at your govt how they have managed to **** up their quarantine hotels 3 times. Funny that you are having a go at another government. but your pathetic excuse of a government keeps ******* up and expects everyone else to bail them out

Seems like this super super contagious Indian variant, yes I will still call it the Indian variant of the WuHu lab flu is not really that contagious. And is mostly confined to the north west of Melbourne despite some pseudo demographer telling us all that things spread more in Melbourne than Sydney due to its typography despite providing no evidence at all. Apparently Sydney Siders all stay within shouting distance of their homes or something because we aren’t able to cross rivers or the harbour. Another expert trying to keep his name out there no doubt as his corporate speaking gigs must have dried up.

Before having a go at experts, you may want to check your own typography.

100% correct,what influence will she have over there?? NONE.
She is wasting more money that she doesnt have & when she comes back(hopefully she wont) she will be using up a place in a quarantine facility(i presume she will abide by her own rules for returning overseas residents).
Her example of leadership is disgusting.

Is she going to quarantine for 2 weeks? Or is she going to use the diplomatic exemptions every country has? Politicians the only group in the world who have no problems with travel right now.

very good.

topography.. and he is no expert. Experts provide evidence to support what they think. So it is not just what they think. He provides nothing. No analysis of any of the outbreaks in Melbourne to back his thinking.

as do average commute times and lengths for Melbourne and Sydney which are almost identical. So all those rivers and harbours etc don’t seem to affect our ability to commute equally long distances as people in Melbourne.

Commute time does not equal commute distance.

isnít it odd that these Labor premiers are so easily able to lie. Itís almost default behaviour. Andrews lies in that enquiry about hotel quarantine even when there is evidence of emails being sent to him he apparently never got them. Now the chook lies about the vaccine showing wonderful leadership. I hope nobody is wondering why many over 50 are reluctant to get vaccinated with AstraZeneca. They have every right to be given the chooks obvious reluctance.
