Interesting read. Also, all the trick drivers in protest today in sydney this afternoon of loosing pay and work. Now some workers outside aviation and tourism are affected they can have a taste of what we have been experiencing. Hopefully more get vaccinated out of it.

MickG0105: Bravo, but your ever patient and courteous explanations do rather remind me of Brad Raffensperger trying to explain vote integrity to Donald Trump.

If my short term memory serves me correctly,wasnt it truck drivers that caused a lot of this particularly a few who had a work permit but decided they didnt like the rules.
Also,heard some yelling & shouting relating to human rights coming from a group in 1 of the 3 locked down LGA's in sydney.
Fair chance the rules dont suit them either & as you say it will give them a taste of what many aviation workers are still going through.

Why? At least that is consistent with what she has been saying all along.

Canadian friend of mine just landed in Canada from Asia where he was fully vaccinated then tested at airport on arrival and walking the streets a few hours later , no quarantine for returning nationals who are vaccinated. He was not vaccinated in Canada . Seeing his elderly mother and some business the back to Asia . No fuss no mass hysteria no threats just common sense from a country who are living with it and getting on with life . Australia will get there in time .

It will be interesting to see what happens during Eid al Adha in Sydney, due to start tomorrow but depending on the sighting of the moon. Some people take God’s laws more seriously than e.g. Gladys’s laws.

(Cue Mick to manage the message on Islamic rules and traditions during Eid al Adha and their relationship with man-made laws…)

Flying in from Asia to, let's say, Vancouver.
1761 deaths so far.

Yep, any Australian city could have that too.
If it was really that important that someone should have the right to enter without quarantine.

And you failed to mention that this arrangement has only been in place since 05 July.

Not interested in number of cases. Number of hospital admissions and deaths are the important numbers. Both of which are down substantially in relation to the number of cases. And the uk is around 53% fully vaccinated. So the number admitted to hospital and the number of deaths will fall even further for a given number of cases once that % gets to the required number of about 70%.

we won’t be there until at least December, more like February next year.

Netherlands is only about 43% fully vaccinated.

Yes, a real worry. When the talking head that you've appointed to give you the advice that you appointed her to give fails to give you that advice.

the areas under most restrictions in western Sydney contains the same area that had the highest recruitment for ISIS, was where the people that protested in Sydney holding up behead all infidels signs, oh that was their 5 year old children holding up those signs, and who have already held a protest yesterday against the latest measures.

Now most people living there are not like that, but there are at least several hundred who are. At least.

Yet another Australian media scare mongering campaign almost purely focussing on case numbers. I don’t think now is the time to let COVID run its course in Aus with our currently pitiful vaccination stats but I certainly think the UK is justified in its actions.
