Why Do You Think We Need A Govt??

Recommended Posts

I should add I’m in health, and we are kept fully informed of where we are up to, and Dave is right, misinformation is rife. 
 

I will tell you this is a very real, and very serious issue, and I have no wish to end up a statistic

NZ have proved this, the question is how did it get back in there again.

Same way it was let back into Victoria. Inept muppets controlling hotel quarantine. But at least Jacinda took a 20% pay cut, our Muppet Dan gave himself a 12%(near $50k) pay rise!! Seriously who takes a pay rise in a pandemic?

I never said it wasn't serious, just sick of getting blamed for something that the person who is blaming, caused 95+% of.

Just like Dr Dog (that’s a dad joke for those who read to their kids) I’m in Madrid at a bone marrow transplant conference. Or I would be. Instead I’m doing it remotely over a live stream in chilly Melbs till 2am each night. Fascinating the ways covid has affected people around the world in just this one small area of medicine. 

Australia is well placed, but we really need to keep our borders closed till effective vaccination is available.  And I mean closed closed.  Please don’t see that as some sort of racist perspective because it isn’t.

Interesting to see Frydenberg ranting on the news about the current grade 4 restrictions in greater Melb. Not sure what he expects Dan to do, but at least on this occasion Dan has got it right.  He just has to hold his nerve.  I know the advice he is getting is to hold, remains to be seen if he does   as he didn’t follow the advice last time.  Financially of course it’s a disaster on many levels

Out of curiosity, what do you for a living?

I figure he works on old Toyotas for a living, with some biomedical engineering as a sideline...

..and with all this Covid cash being thrown about-

""The children's playground at Parliament is being called a monument to extravagance after it ran significantly over budget.

Today the price tag of the playground has been revealed at $572,000, well over the initial $400,000 budget.  The slide was $76,000 over budget and engineering and architect fees were $73,000 over.

The Green Party think it's ironic - given the Speaker said it was too expensive to make the playground accessible.  “The current playground is effectively a slide and a bunch of logs which is not particularly accessible to kids with certain types of disabilities,” Chlöe Swarbrick says.

However, Disability Rights Commissioner Paula Tesoriero says an accessible carousel may soon be added to the playground to address this.""

 

Obviously the Labour Party is in power in NZ...   Bloody fools voting them in, although I'm sure if the National Party win the election they will still pour another few hundred thousand in to make it accessible for the disabled!

I work in Haematology, blood cancers mainly.  Old Toyota's just an enjoyable way to amuse myself.

The latest twist to the saga is that the hospitals offered to takeover much of the case tracing and various other aspects of the response.  Initially the government thought that was a good idea, but quickly backed away when the public service got worried some people might lose their jobs.  Meanwhile, the source of our latest outbreak was happily infecting other people hours after he was identified due to logistical 'issues' within said department. Outcome, longer lockdown
