The only one allowing the virus to spread are the f..kwits that wouldn't follow the laws put in place and for the rest of your post its just utter <deleted>.

Keeping up with current affairs is not everyone's cup of tea, so I'll explain it.  Every other state used police/army to secure quarantine hotels.  Dan Andrews and Labor used untrained private security, who were consorting in all manner of ways, including sexually, with those supposedly in quarantine.

Who do you think contracted the private security guards, it would have been government purchasing dept, not politicians.

It matters not who was part of the implementation mechanism.  It is the decision not to use police/military that was fraught with peril and poor judgement, and that blame lays squarely at the table of Dan Andrews and some of his ministers.

Extremely wise words.

For example, Queensland. No fresh cases today...Labor state. Left wing!

Bogans? Don't worry about them. They still know their place.

 

It's just that their place has moved. They're now next door to you.

No idea what the requirements were, but it seems the faults are the responsibility of the successful bidders hiring unqualified personnel. Having worked in sales to State and Federal government Departments I do not believe the selection process would have been at Minister level. There's going to be an enquiry so the detail will eventually be in the public domain.

That would be the leftist folk at 60 minutes trying to distract from it being the fault of the leftist government.  The Victoria police union didn't want police doing the job, and whilst the government of every other state has a healthy relationship with their police forces, the Victorian government evidently doesn't have that kind of relationship.  

 

The people they shoehorned in to doing the job without adequate training were of course going to fail.  Only a fool (Dan Andrews and co) could not see that as a likely consequence.

You're joking right? I personally know the Producer at 60 Minutes, to say 60 Minutes in Australia is 'lefist' is ridiculous.

The equation is pretty simple. You are either gonna pay now (Sweden), or pay later (which everyone does).

 

If you pay later, add on top of your fee those that will suffer and die because of the lockdown. 

 

The equation is best when you pay now. Wear masks, slow the spread, protect the vulnerable, and you will be much better off in the long run.

 

Australia is actually proof. They had this thing almost 100% contained by way of strict measures early on. They paid a lot, and received nothing for that. We are seeing that now.

I have a few friends in Sydney who are saying they aren't wearing masks, I said, you gotta be kidding, protect yourselves, the masks might help, they might not help, but you got nothing to lose, cover up when out and about, thankfully my daughter gets it as does her boyfriend, so it's not just the young that have got their knickers in a not, so do the mid 50's ones that I know of.

Idiots. Maskholes.

 

Australia nearly control. Now be impossible.

Regardless I will stick by my statement.
