"Im not your mate" :lol:

Utterly pathetic. As the forum's self-proclaimed White Mamba did you feel attacked by me calling you my 'mate' and that's why you "struck"? You've boasted that you only "strike when attacked".

she's in her 50s ffs, she doesn't dye like most women her age, she is a professor, might get more of a chub out of a few more in here with that, she is actually a bit of a medico on a power trip....needs to know her place and chill on the press conferences and I think given a bit too much airplay by Marshall
Referring to "doing me a favour" by getting tested came across really weird.
Otherwise, she may well take two at a time.

It was actually an anti sexist lear from posters(you?) about how hot she was for a 70yr old and wanting to bang her...but Im sexist?
To your highlighted quote....If you have watched her regular updates she has grown a little power hungry, I do Im from SA and watch a bit of news from there, you haven't so you will have to take my word for it or trawl her updates.
Lastly what I said had nothing to do about her sex it was that she is a chief medico not health minister its Wade and he should be leading news briefs.
So you see you have gone all half cocked.
Do you have the fortitude to admit your mistake?

Well we clearly have the whole Covid thing done and dusted, or at least Scotty doesn't know about Melbourne or Sydney, no matter he does nothing except confuse the punters on that issue anyways.

He's been on holiday since just before Christmas, but that was a secret holiday. This will be an official holiday, with an Acting PM etc.

Former President of the Victorian Liberal Party Michael Kroger is being interviewed on Sky News. He called Trump's behaviour this week "regrettable" but downplayed the storming of the Capitol Building, saying that it wasn't a genuine attempted coup, and nowhere near as serious as the BLM protests.

Presumably Albo is alright and just under obseravation ... after encountering a P-plater in a Range Rover ...
  • Nearly 24 hours after being in a car accident in Sydney's inner-west, federal opposition leader Anthony Albanese remains in hospital.

    A spokesperson yesterday said Mr Albanese was "shaken but okay" and was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital as a precautionary measure.

    But the opposition leader remained in hospital overnight, with fears his injuries may be more complex than first thought.

It would be harder to find a more fossilised example of the LNP Old Guard thank Kroger.

Mind you, the New Right in Victoria are out to get him

Josh Frydenberg delivered a press conference today. When asked whether the govt would consider extending Job Keeper and Job Seeker he laid the blame for any economic pain that individuals or businesses may be experiencing on the states border closures.

He tearfully bemoaned Twitter's banning of Donald Trump, and said it was an affront on free speech. Keeping in mind he is a member of the government that relentlessly targets whistle blowers, and who made it a crime for doctors to report on the conditions in our overseas prison camps.

I might be wrong but isn't he one of the leaders attacking political satire? For those wondering, if the Gov doesn't like your brand of comedy then you could do some jail time.

Michael McCormack says 'facts can sometimes be contentious' when asked about Covid misinformation
He also went on to say...
Facts are simple and facts are straight
Facts are lazy and facts are late
Facts all come with points of view
Facts don't do what I want them to
Facts just twist the truth around
Facts are living turned inside out
Facts are getting the best of them
Facts are nothing on the face of things
Facts don't stain the furniture
Facts go out and slam the door
Facts are written all over your face
Facts continue to change their shape

I guess it was wishful thinking to expect anyone in this thread (except maybe Shanky) to complement the Federal Government on its successful $2 billion program to help first home owners build homes - which is generating a boom for tradies and stimulating the economyat a needed time.

Just doesn't fit with the prevalent anti LNP narrative here, eh?

I'd love you to provide some figures on the takeup of that loan.

The 2 Billion figure is the amount Available, not taken up

Your ABC reported, last night, that at current grant payment rates,the allotted $2billion will be expended by March.
