I think pointing out abject hypocrisy is always welcome. And deserves mocking. As for dangerous nonsense.. ????

Good! I hated going there.

Looks as if WA is intending to open up next year and throw some money behind it:

The package focuses on international education, airlines, tourism and sourcing skilled labour.

It includes $65 million for re-establishing pre-COVID flight routes to Perth and securing new direct routes to Perth from countries such as Germany, India, China and Vietnam.

There will also be $10 million for more intrastate flights.

This is a good article about vaccines and other treatments in general and with relation to the new variant.

WA will have to throw a tonne of money to get anyone other than family to visit over there now. WA border antics are all forgotten over here in the sense no one seems to care about it MM has not had any air time for months other than what’s related to the Ashes and even that was a 10 second headline, SCG or MCG are happy about this I would think.

I guess WA can expect more of this treatment in the future. Sad that Sam Kerr wonít play a match in her home town in the biggest (womenís) tournament in the world.

Pure holiday visitors to WA from interstate pre-COVID were about 400k average per year (2016-2019) spending around $675m per year. They pull that much worth out of the ground every 1.2 days.

Well they will have to dig double the amount to make up for the tourist dollar they’re loosing out on.

Yep, start today and finish by morning tea tomorrow. Thereís your annual domestic tourist dollar equivalent done!

Fair point but only in dollar value.

Look at the distribution of where tourist dollars get s p r e a d around the state versus mining income.

But you need a buyer

SHVC 2nd Dec 2021 04:02

Remember, it’s only worth what the buyer is willing to pay and it won’t last forever.

Well,well. NSW, Vic and ACT residents now need to test on arrival to SA

Queensland mandates all people from Adelaide need to isolate for 14 days.

so much for open borders. Who is next.


And internationally.

All international arrivals to the UK will again have to take pre-departure Covid tests in a bid to tackle the Omicron variant, the health secretary has confirmed.

All travellers, regardless of vaccination status, who are visiting England, Scotland and Wales, or returning home after a holiday will be required to take either a pre-departure lateral flow or PCR test under the new restrictions.

SHVC 4th Dec 2021 20:26

Why get vaccinated is the real question. They can jam the booster shot where the sun don’t shine if they mandate it!

Because you want to reduce your risk of seriousness illness of death.

Indeed, and to top it off the Guvmint have all but shut down with just a handful of sitting days before the next election. Given by their most recent performance it would seem they are handing over to the states. I look forward to 7 different countries as the states fumble about.

Because you want to keep your job.

SHVC 5th Dec 2021 21:59

If borders keep closing there will be no job. O

You obviously donít appreciate the impact that border closures have on families that live interstate. Money is everything is it? Who cares if grandma passes without ever meeting her grandchildren.
