    It perfectly reasonable for Western Australia to wait for the COVID pandemic in the eastern states to subside before the government considers reopening our border. WA premier McGowan has done a fantastic job managing WA unlike that your girly swot prefect Perrottet and Dear Leader Dan.

    The Experts’ “Zero Covid” Plan Was a Total Failure

    … Neo-Zero Covid: The Pivot to Vaccines

    The zero covid mentality endures, however. The second wave of the zero covid mentality came with the idea that with universal vaccination, covid would disappear.

    …It’s no longer possible to even pretend that vaccination prevents transmission. The only argument left to supporters of the vaccine mandate is that vaccines help against serious disease and death. That’s excellent, but it has nothing to do with public health because it’s clear the unvaccinated aren’t the reason the disease has not been eradicated.

    And then there is the fact that vaccination has, in part, likely contributed to new covid mutations. This isn’t new with covid. The idea that treatments can lead to new mutations is not new, of course, and it’s long been known that under a variety of situations, leaky vaccines can produce vaccine resistant mutations.

    This is also known to occur in the case of covid. For example, in an article for the Journal of Physical Chemistry (December 2021), the authors note “vaccine-breakthrough or antibody-resistant mutations provide a new mechanism of viral evolution.” …

    We live in Hungary at present and happy to be here, but a word of caution, the government recently set the price of petrol at 480 Ft (about $2 a litre) and also set the price of some basic food items.

    I didn’t know they could do this. Can the OZ gov. do this?

    Suggesting that some of the fittest, most health-conscious people on the planet are a threat, while elderly persons with co-morbidities who have had the shots are OK to come in, is truly perverse.

    The Kelly Slater thing will arouse a lot of public sympathy, as Slater is very popular personally in a way that Djokovic is not. While it is unfortunate that political issues are determined by irrelevancies such as personal popularity, that’s the way it is.

    WA Premier and multi-linguist Mark McGowan

    These sports forecasts were close enough:

    Novak Djokovic is a no-show at the Australian Open after refusing to disclose his vaccination status …

    England’s Ashes team lose the toss in Hobart, lose 10 wickets for 54 runs in the first innings, lose all their video referrals against Australia within three overs, lose 10 wickets for 16 runs in their second innings, lose the Test within two days, lose their tickets back to the mainland, lose their luggage on the way home and finally lose their citizenship.

    And there was also this unlikely prediction for our friends in the West:

    WA Premier Mark McGowan denies reports that isolated residents of his barricaded former state have declined to the point they now communicate in a crude pidgin language of their own invention.

    “We not becomma dum-dum or simples,” McGowan tells Sky News from Perth’s parliament hut. “Muchly good-good Westland, yes boss.”

    You’ll never believe it:

    UPDATE. Ernie Dingo did it first:

    UPDATE II. Speaking of Djokovic, mentioned above, here’s Mark Steyn’s summary of recent events:

    The Djokovic deportation is a sign that they’re now taking it to the next level. Alex Hawke, the Australian Health Minister, concedes that the world’s Number One tennis player is no health risk to anyone but is rather a free-speech risk:

    “I have given consideration to the fact that Mr Djokovic is a high profile unvaccinated individual, who has indicated publicly that he is opposed to becoming vaccinated against Covid (which for convenience I refer to as ‘anti-vaccination’) …

    “I consider that Mr Djokovic’s presence in Australia may pose a health risk to the Australian community, in that his presence in Australia may foster anti-vaccination sentiment leading to (a) other unvaccinated persons refusing to become vaccinated, (b) other unvaccinated persons being reinforced in their existing views not to become vaccinated, and/or (c) a reduction in the uptake of booster vaccines.”

    This is worse than the concept of “pre-crime”; it’s “pre-speech”: if Djokovic were to remain in Australia, he might say something that might cause Mrs Scroggins of Alice Springs to consider foregoing her seventh booster shot.’

    George Christensen will pursue a post-parliamentary career in journalism, he told an online forum featuring a who’s who of right-wing provocateurs on Friday…

    Mr Christensen, who will not seek re-election in the central Queensland seat of Dawson at this year’s election, told the forum he planned to return to his journalistic roots.

    Before entering politics, he worked at several small newspapers and was a media adviser to former Howard government minister De-Anne Kelly…

    “I’m not leaving politics, I’m leaving Parliament,” Mr Christensen said.

    “We are all involved [in] politics as citizens and I’m going to fire up and get back into the fray, but from a different point of view…

    “I was a journalist before I was in politics, and that’s my trade. I want to report what’s going on and I want to prod the powerful.”

    ‘Longest day of my life’: Mum left ‘broken’ after baby ripped from arms until negative PCR test

    A Queensland mother claims her newborn baby was taken away against her will after giving birth because of a heavy-handed hospital decision to remove him until she returned a negative Covid PCR test.

    Caboolture Hospital has launched an investigation into the shocking claims made by Narangba woman Aleasha Pique, 36, who said she was told the test result could take “days” due to a backlog, and the agonising wait alone in the maternity ward left her “broken”.

    Ms Pique, who is fully vaccinated and exclusively breastfeeding, said the hospital’s nurses were even shocked when her baby boy Remy was taken away after she revealed her teenage daughter was a casual contact of a confirmed Covid case…
