So over TWO MONTHS since EASA relaxed their mask rules…

Emperor Mark refuses to extend mask mandate…

How about we remove the mandate on aircraft? If you want to wear a mask, then wear one.

He's on notice after the trade commissioner fiasco.

Nine more days until we lose masks on aircraft for domestic. Australia once again months behind the rest of the world.

And I have no doubt that there will still be some 'Chicken Littles' who will protest about this, saying that we need to keep wearing masks for our own good etc etc.

It wasn't all that long ago that I read a Letter to the Editor in one of the papers from some 'concerned citizen' who demanded that Australia close its borders again!

If you have a health condition that renders you susceptible to cooties, then the onus is on you to protect yourself! I don't need my hand held when I cross the road, I look both ways and assess when its' safe to go. Same applies for getting sick. If I were immuno-compromised and travelling, then I'd still wear a mask, even if not required.

That sounds like common sense, but the left hates the notion of personal responsibility. Only government can tell you the right thing to do in the left's opinion. In fact the president of the AMA (yes those who make neurosurgeons from other countries start med school from Day 1 as their qualifications aren't recognised) was on Sky news saying ending the mandate will put pressure on immune compromised people as they should wear a mask. So there you go, better to force everyone to do something they don't need to do, then force an individual who does need a mask to take self responsibility!

Indeed! Some of the left do not even believe in personal responsibility. To some, there is no such thing.

It's always some elses fault!!

Funny, if Iím not mistaken the mask mandate on aircraft was instituted by a right wing federal government and just ended by a left wing one???

The Overton window is so obviously driven by the left these days - but nice try.

I can 'see and avoid' traffic, but it is somewhat more difficult to see & avoid virii.

that's called life - if you don't like it, then don't leave your house. Continuing to force everyone to wear shitty fitting bits of cloth over their face does nothing more than satisfy the bureaucratic need for safety theatre.

Did you miss what the left wing State governments did with lockdowns and border closures then?

....but that was not the question was it? In fact it was a factual statement...

....But that would not fit your narrative would it?

Let's not forget that whilst it might have been instigated by a right wing federal government, it was also copping a lot of pressure to do so by State Governments, three of which were openly hostile to anything the Federal Government at the time said/did.

Donít worry, I know the Overton window for some is ďbecause most of the Federal Liberals and NSW State Liberals in 2020-22 bought into vaccines, masks and border closures theyíre really part of the EXTREME LEFT, and itís more the ďred pilledĒ in the LNP like George Christensen and Gerard Rennick along with One Nation, UAP and Craig Kelly who are part of the SENSIBLE CENTRE!Ē

Er, yes there is. Otherwise what is all the noise over the culture wars in this country?
