Don't know maybe because JAL don't fly to ADL. Another "Yes Minister" script.

Seriously? You can't make this stuff up...
From 7:00pm the Walgett Shire LGA will be under stay-at-home orders for a week, as well as Bogan, Bourke, Brewarrina, Coonamble, Gilgandra, Narromine, and Warren. Health authorities say a man who returned a positive COVID test is from Walgett, 230km east of Bourke, and was in Dubbo and Bathurst during his infectious period.
AAhh, grashopper, but where exactly was this Covid test undertaken?

He was tested on Saturday while in custody at the prison in a routine screening procedure for new inmates. He was released on bail on Monday.

He was confirmed as a COVID-positive case this afternoon.

What the hell happened to "Thou shall isolate until zee test is negative"? Keep the asrehole in prison until his test comes back, and then release him on bail. FFS.

No point making a rule and not being willing and able to enforce it effectively. That's the half-arsed way of doing it.
Why does it need to be "enforced"
I get it.
It has to be "enforced" on the same cohort who zoom past me at traffic lights when I stop on the red, or the person who crossed a train line when the boom gates are down and the lights flashing.

Or is this the start of a Darwinian period in human history?

It needs to be enforced because this group are intent on dragging you onto the train lines with them.

Having lived in ďother countries ď for many years.. some people donít believe laws apply to them. At the moment .. they should all be arrested .

Doherty institute modelling for Delta - up to 5000 or so deaths across Australia if no lockdowns imposed and virus left unchecked.

Is that an Ďacceptableí number? Each one of us has a different opinion. Those unaffected by the devastation to livelihoods will have a differing view than those of us most affected.

We are getting close to ďlet it ripĒ.

FIFY: We are getting close to it ripping, whether we like it or not.

Thanks to Gladys gold standard it’s ripping in NSW East to as far west as the border now. North as Balina only a matter of days before Albury is hit.

Fellow Victorian Ppruners, the further 1 week lockdown extension that was announced yesterday will AGAIN be extended by another week. Buckle up until August 26!
And I so advise!
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaagh!!!

Nothing new. It's government policy. The virus was designed to have a 14 day incubation period.
Always add 14 days to any mystery case.
As I say that another thought just came through. What if the virus was the same as the flu incubation
period of 3 days. I don't think lockdowns would never eventuate.

The one that hasn't backed down is the one with the most international flying.

Non story.

It would be nice if the Politicians were to lose their livelihoods and feel the same pain as everybody else. But of course, if there was a risk of that happening to them the word Ďlockdowní wouldnít even exist. Arrogant, contemptible assholes.

So NSW, VIC and ACT in lockdown, QLD heavily restricted how do these decision makers think the general population can survive. It’s definitely looking liking the cure is worse than the disease.

Until our double dose vaccination rates are above 80% I strongly disagree.

Oh please. Or until they change the target to 91% or the current measures donít work for the new variants, or all preschoolers, cats and dogs need to now be vaccinated, so letís lock it all down again blah blah blah. These wankers are making it up on the run. Governments arenít capable of organising a church picnic let alone protecting its people through a real emergency. Anyone who accepts the BS coming from the Governments mouths is living in cloud cuckoo land.

Clearly you don't think there should be any lockdowns at all, which essentially means "let it rip" Can I ask you what your expectation is of how life will be if we do that.
