Ali's Choice wrote: Sun Jan 03, 2021 6:46 am Clogs, you've done a great job of complaining but you still haven't told us how you would have managed the border so that not a single person's holiday was disrupted, but the state of Victoria was also kept safe.
So I spent some time thinking you were asking a serious question earlier and as a result responded. Now I realise you are just trolling. No probs. I had a nibble at the bait.
Sorry I missed your response. I apologise, I got distracted by your post soon after, where you claimed 80,000 tets had been completed in NSW on a single day.

The big problem with your proposal is that it relies on home quarantine. That simply does not work to control the virus, it has never worked anywhere on Earth.

The 2nd problem with your idea is that it relies on giving returnees longer to get back to Vic. The first recorded case in Vic was on NYE, and they acted quickly after that. Leaving open the window for longer than they did would only increase the risk for Victorians. Especially if it was being underpinned by a 'home quarantine' framework.
We both know that I was simply quoting directly from the ABC news website, I even pasted the link and the image to validate. But yes, it clearly wasn't 80 thousand, it was closer to 70 000. But the point remains, if the Victorian Government mandated everyone return before a certain date, and then everyone that returned had to be tested within 24 hours of their return, and then the Victorian Government wasn't even able to test those that had returned within the very window they had specified, it makes them look amateurish. A clown show if you will.

Now, to your points. I did not claim my 30 second brain fart plan was infallible. Simply that it was a major improvement over the clown show that is performing at the moment. The reliance on home quarantine to control the virus seemed to be pretty effective. From memory, and happy for you to correct me if I am wrong, but in Melbourne we used home quarantine during the worst part of our outbreak and I believe that was rather effective and as a result we were able to get rid of the virus for a few weeks?
I also seem to recollect, and again I may be wrong here, but home quarantine is what is in place right now in Victoria as part of this current raft of restrictions? Are you saying the Victorian Government have fvcked this up as well and home quarantine won't work at all? Why would the Victorian Government make it compulsory for returned holiday makes to home quarantine when according to AC this hasn't worked anywhere? It is just dumb for the Victorian Government to even roll this out according to AC.
I also think that if you test positive for Covid, you may/will be required to self quarantine at home. Clearly a flawed requirement according to AC. This simply has not worked anywhere on earth at all. Although, it might be that you are living up in Queensland and probably don't have a clue about any of this because you aren't living through it. In which case I can cut you some slack. Because dopy Queenslander.

To your second point, no one wants to be forced into self quarantine. Most people will have rushed back to avoid that. But if there were people that elected to stay in NSW, well they are doing so knowing full well they will be under 14 day quarantine when they return. At that point so what? As a Victorian you can choose to get home before the cut off and avoid quarantine, or you can return after the date and be made to quarantine at home. And if you are quarantined and routinely tested then it is highly unlikely the virus will leak out. And I doubt you would have 10 000 people in quarantine because most people would want to avoid that. So it might just be those 1500 poor sods that are right now giving out hand jobs for bread crusts at the border that would right now be at home watching Netflix, rather than tending to their blistered hands and sore backs from sleeping on the side of the road.

Apparently the rest of the world is less dangerous than NSW. Welcome to the Australian Open everyone. We will grant you special access to visit, but people that live here? Fvck them!

The Australian Open that doesn’t start until next month?

I doubt anyone is receiving special access for an event that’s still five weeks away...
4th of Feb. But you have to be here before then to enter quarantine. So basically you need to arrive before the end of next week...
Monday February 8 actually... 5 weeks from today.

And the players have to start arriving in the next few weeks to begin quarantine.

Everyone else is still subject to whatever border restrictions are in place... which obviously will change between now and then.

Yes, you are right. 2 weeks before February 8 the rest of the world is going to be safer than NSW. Perhaps the hand jobbers in NSW should start playing tennis? They might find it easier to get back to their own home in Victoria?

In today's COVID-19 press conference the Victorian govt hinted that it may unilaterally close it's border to the UK, given Scott Morrison's refusal to do so, or convene a National Cabinet to discuss the new strains of the coronavirus that are emerging.

Short version - Dan wants to usurp Commonwealth powers. His belt and bridges deal with the CCP is on the nose, so the political schemers are trying to find a new issue.

That and perhaps Dan has worked out that if all returned travellers have to go to Sydney, then he wont get the blame for another hotel quarantine fiasco.

Fvck me this clusterfvck is truly appalling.

Federal Maribyrnong MP Bill Shorten said one of his constituents was stuck on the NSW south coast with her husband, their disabled child and another with special needs.

“(It is) far better to have this child, 11 year old, looked after at home rather than being stuck in the south coast,” Mr Shorten told Today.

“We need now the administrative follow up to help make sure that people are not stranded in some really tough circumstances like the lady I’m talking about.”

You can complain all you like, but your alternative to a hard lockdown was to allow the 100,000 Victorians who were holidaying in NSW over New Years to return back to Victoria at their leisure, and then spread any virus across Victoria via home quarantine.

Just the 1 new case locally, with 2 internationally acquired cases in hotel quarantine.

Hopefully a return to donut days is just around the corner.

Double donuts and a vaccine rollout. Scomo and his team of merry muppets need to pull their fvcking fingers out of their arses.

Supply then distribution. But also watching the

If it is supply and then distribution that is fine. All we can do is wait. But if it is the TGA fiddling about twiddling their thumbs to see if it is safe or not. Well that is a different can of worms. What is the likelihood of the TGA turning around and saying "Hmmm. This Oxoford vaccine is not safe for use in Australia so we won't certify it"? More chance of AC voting for the Coalition at the next election.

Fingers crossed we are in the clear. Things seem to be under control down here. But we are one person turned away at a testing site from armageddon.


Hopefully a wake up call too for the Sydney test...

I actually think we should start forcefully removing people from Victoria if we feel they pose a threat to us. If they post something on Facebook that could be considered inciting discontent with the Victorian Government then they should kicked out of Victoria and be sent to NSW. Or worse. Queensland.

Not sure how wise that is. The old saying goes: If you licence the lynching you create a black market for beheadings.

Not sure what I was meaning to say there, old fashioned perhaps?

But I like the idea of an unlicensed lynching because it implies a licensed version.

The immediate threat in Melbourne seems to have receded but the mental scars may prove rather more enduring. My idiot mate down there messaged me that he’d been swimming off a pier in the river this morning.

He’ll likely catch his death of Yarra knobrot, the damned fool.
