Australia today has the pathetic honour of being the only country in the world which currently prohibits its citizens from foreign travel (excluding visiting New Zealand during the spasmodic bubble periods) without specific permission. They’re doing this under the provisions of the 2015 Biosecurity Act which speaks for itself.
This is ludicrous, thus no surprise that their garrulous Prime Minister is now crashing in the preferred Prime Minister polls. Less incessant babble and hogging the media from Morrison and more action on vaccine provision which has been almost as disastrous as here in New Zealand, would leave a better image.
Increasingly, commentators in the grown-up countries are observing that we may have to learn to live with Covid, or as it’s dubbed, Long Covid, which has seen some vaccinated people suffering from non-fatal after-effects for a month or more.
We do that now with the annual constantly revised flu jabs. The flu kills vast numbers of the non-inoculated annually, notably the same predominant victims of Covid; specifically the elderly. Locking down the citizenry every time there’s an outbreak has done its dash. The public are tired of nanny-statism and want to restore their lives.
