I was taking to people at work today. These are people I consider intelligent and sane. The number of them them that told me they would not get the vaccine amazed me. The number that thought this whole thing has been made up, shocked me. These are people I call my friends, and think are on a normal path

What they all said.. if the border was never opened again, they would be very happy.

Australians have always readily fallen into the "close our borders" rhetoric. Asylum Seekers, Islam, African gangs, poor migrants stealing "their" jobs, Chinese buying up all property. It's a pretty common political talking point to blame problems in this country on "the outsiders".

Until Covid came along and everyone overseas who could potentially bring the virus here got put into that category too. And governments are now pandering to that line of thought. For those who's job it is to bring "the outsiders" into the country, pilots, they have now had their livelihoods disrupted. I've seen this coming in this country for a while, it's just now it's affecting Aviation in a big way.

At the end of February, Moderna delivered the first batch of mRNA vaccine for phase 1 human trials. The first USA death had not been announced. It wasn’t until March 11 2020 that the WHO declared a worldwide pandemic. The mRNA technology had been in development for nearly a decade ..it was a hammer looking for a nail

Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse for LH crew.

Forget Cathay. Cathay 2.0 will just wither away into nothing and turn into another Chinese carrier. Won’t be a career airline or a employer of choice for expats anymore. Management have many many mis steps in the last 5 years on the operations front.

Computerized aircraft will not get off the ground with passengers. Cathay just trying to make themself relevant.

Looks like NSW is utilising the same scare tactics via the media that Victoria used.
Not long now till another boarder closure and lockdown.
The whole thing is out of proportion and the lies do not add up, but “ go get tested and line up for your Jab “ and become a guinea pig for science and the dragon.

This is no more than a global collection of DNA, and for those that get jabbed that is what the dragon wants.
There is more to this hidden agenda than meets the eye. I am not an anti vaxer or conspiracy theorist but I do have a problem with being coerced into getting these experimental gene altering drugs that haven’t been tested long enough.

Let’s come back in 5-10 years time and see how this has worked out for all those sheep.

Ever had a blood test done?

You sound exactly like a conspiracy theorist and anti vaxer.

I’m starting to wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone say ‘I’m not an antivaxer or conspiracy theorist, but…’, followed by some complete bollocks about how Covid vaccines will alter your DNA or cause spoons to stick to you magnetically.

I wish I had a dollar for every time someone misspelt ‘border’ during the COVID era; I’d be waving to you from my super yacht.

There is no frickin ‘a’ in ‘border’.

A boarder is a person who receives regular meals when staying somewhere, in return for payment or services

Once again looks like SA first to move with the "Slamming shut" on covid outbreaks. "People who visited NSW hotspots banned from entering SA"

Lets hope this doesnt turn into another repeat of Melbourne. Why are international airport drivers not getting vaccinated, beggars belief at this stage.

Thats why all of us became pilots. We can't spell, read or write and our personalities are questionable at best

I think the bigger question is why are they not getting tested daily? This bloke had one test only, the positive one.

One state about to open borders, as another is about to close. There goes half my roster again. I have basically budgeted at half salary for the next year with all these rolling border restrictions.

Well for one thing, it reduces the chances of a positive test! :}

Please don't tell my mother I'm a pilot. She thinks I'm a piano player at a whorehouse.

Just a run of the mill f*ckwit then?

After the year of lies we’ve just witnessed, anyone who blindly follows the “expert class” or parrots “trust the science” is really pushing the gullibility boat out now.
