I don’t have reservations about vaccination per se but I do have reservations about any pharmaceutical which is potentially hurried through necessary safety protocols in order to secure market share.

Not everyone’s favourite politician has a battle on his hands . I personally don’t like any of them but I do agree with Kelly on this issue. Sometimes I even agree with scumo but not often. THE SWAMP IS DESPERATE TO SILENCE ME - Especially on Ivermectin

As they say, the flak is heaviest when you are over the target - so it’s no surprise the leftist swamp dwellers have rolled out a misleading, deceptive and defamatory hit piece on me.

Firstly, they roll out the old fake news chestnut, wanting you to only post about things EXCLUSIVELY to your electorate. Such comments just show a childish ignorance at failing understand that the role of Federal Member of Parliament is to deal with Federal issues - and Federal issues not only DIRECTLY EFFECT a Federal members own electorate but ALSO effect the nation, and international events.

So unless someone residents of Hughes are miraculous immune from everything to do with Covid Ivermectin my posts are relevant to people in my electorate.

And look at the hit job on Ivermectin. Note how the author cunningly describes it as ‘’manic fringe craziness’’.

Is Dr Pierre Kory’s views on Ivermectin that I’ve repeatedly posted ‘’manic fringe craziness’’ ?

Is Australia’s international renown Professor Tom Borody’s ‘’manic fringe craziness” ?

Or Professor Paul Marik ?

Or Professor Hector E. Cavollo ?

Or Professor Peter McCullough ?

Or Professor Harvey Risch ?

Or how about the 50+ medical experts that recently co-authored a peer-reviewed paper calling for HCQ and Ivermectin to be adopted in treatment protocols ?

Or thousands of other medical doctors around the world that are treating Covid patients in the front line and using Ivermectin & HCQ + Zinc to save lives ?

People that make such ignorant and ill-information assertions such as the author of this hit job has, have blood on their hands - because they are giving aid and comfort to those acting to deny Australians access to this medical treatment.

And what pathetic comments by Raina MacIntyre, about Ivermectin not having ‘’the appropriate randomised controlled clinical trials’’ ?

Why don’t they print the truth that there are already 30 Ivermectin/Covid studies to date including 12 randomised controlled trials - and 100% of these studies have found Ivermectin highly effective.

Given the current global situation we face, and with the data at hand already, to demand more randomised Clinical trials - is immoral, unethical and condemns people to death. For basically what it calls for is secretly denying a group of sick people Ivermectin (and instead giving them a placebo) and seeing how many more die (for become extremely ill) in that the group, compared to people in the group receiving Ivermectin.

And the hit job asks the rhetorical question ‘’and did I know that in some cases Hydroxychloroquine could make the illness worse?” - This is just more deception and smear.

For yes, if you load up people with a massive overdose of HCQ late in their illness, around 6-8 times the recommended dose, as they did in the UK’s deadly Recovery trial - it will make the illness worse, as I have covered and detailed in multiple posts.

And unsurprisingly, such a dishonest hit job, fails to mention that every medical doctor advocating for HCQ, doesn’t advocate for HCQ alone, but they advocate for HCQ combined with Zinc and an antibiotic- and that treatment must start early.

And of course Miss Price fails to mention the fact that 100% of the published studies in the medical journals that looked at early treatment with HCQ found it highly effective in reducing hospitalisation and death.

But hey, what do swamp dwellers care about people dying and preventing unnecessary death if they can get a hit on a poltical opponent ?

Well if the swamp think they are going to silence me with hit jobs like this, they can shove it where the sun don’t shine - and in response, I’m going to up my posts on Ivermectin over the next days.

And when Ivermectin is finally approved in Australia (and it’s only just a matter of time) after the swamp dwellers behind this article wash the blood from their hands - they then might consider writing me a humble apology.

And in conclusion, my entire argument is about freedom of choice and individual liberty. I believe it is an outrageous disgrace that the health bureaucrats in this nation have used the power of big government to interfere in the sanctity of the Doctor/patient relationship.

If my doctor, after due diligence and knowledge of my individual medical history believes that either HCQ or Ivermectin might save my life - he should be able to recommend that to me, without the interference of bureaucrats issuing dictates from Ivory Towers.

In contrast swamp dwellers want more centralised control and more power handed to the bureaucrats. That’s the difference.

NIH Revises Treatment Guidelines for Ivermectin for the Treatment of COVID-19
Ivermectin is Now a Therapeutic Option for Doctors & Prescribers!

Jan 14, 2021 – One week after Dr. Paul Marik and Dr. Pierre Kory – founding members of the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) – along with Dr. Andrew Hill, researcher and consultant to the World Health Organization (WHO), presented their data before the NIH Treatment Guidelines Panel, the NIH has upgraded their recommen­da­tion and now considers Ivermectin an option for use in COVID-19.

Their recommendation has now been upgraded to the same level as those for widely used monoclonal antibodies & convalescent plasma, which is a “neither for nor against” recommen­da­tion. The significance of this change is that the NIH has decided to no longer recommend against the use of ivermectin in the treatment of COVID-19 by the nation’s health care providers. A consequence of this change is that ivermectin has now been made a clear therapeutic option for patients.

Looks like the Quacks and their Quack treatment is finally approved

Supafreak Saturday, 16 Jan 2021 at 7:27am


Today, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) was withdrawn their August 2020 recommendation ‘AGAINST the use of Ivermectin to treat Covid’, and have upgraded it to a neutral one of neither ‘for or against’ Ivermectin.

As the Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance state, with this change of position the NIH ‘’now considers Ivermectin an option for use” - and this now makes Ivermectin “an option for prescribers.”

"The decision to use ivermectin for patients in the treatment of COVID-19 is (now) at the medical discretion of doctors & prescribers. A lifesaving development.”’

This is all I have been arguing for; that there has not been enough evidence for health bureaucrats to take away an Ivermectin option from doctors.

It’s a simple principle in a free democracy; the sanctity of the Doctor/Patient relationship should not be overruled by bureaucrats and the heavy hand of big government - without overwhelming evidence.

When there is no other early treatment option approved, if you become infected with the Covid virus, your doctor, with due diligence and after seeking expert advice (and with your informed consent) should be able to use a treatment such as Ivermectin (in combination with Zinc) if in your doctors best judgement, it offers hope of saving your life or preventing you deteriorating and needing hospitalisation.

For that view, and merely posting the results of Ivermectin studies in the medical journals and expert opinion from frontline doctors actually treating covid - I have been slandered, defamed and vilified by the ignorant and prejudice.

And today, with this change of position on Ivermectin by the US National Institutes of Health - I’ve been vindicated.

The question is, will those that led the abuse be big enough to apologise ?

Will they admit their childish attempts to demonise Ivermectin as ‘hair lice treatment’ were wrong ?

And will they join in my call for Australia’s National Covid Evidence Taskforce to immediate follow the US National Institutes of Health’s change in position on Ivermectin?

And this is also a big test for our left wing media and their often nasty followers. Any sane person should celebrate this change of position on Ivermectin - as it’s another weapon that can be deployed to fight covid, help save lives, illness and end the lockdowns.

So will they celebrate or will they snarl, continuing their fake news campaign, branding all the facts I post on Ivermectin as ‘’misinformation’’ ?

Just for the record (FFS for the 1,000th time) Border Control and Quarantine are Federal Govt responsibilities.

It is the Federal Govt with the legal authority to determine the numbers of people that are allowed into Australia now, before Covid and long after. No-one enters or leaves the country without Federal Govt says so. I am not sure why people can't accept these facts. We should all be thankful for the tireless work done by all State Premiers and Govts, LNP and Labor, because without them and that work Australia's Covid status would more closely resemble the US or UK thanks entirely of the inaction of the reactive Feds.

Scomo's Hot Hotels can't take the heat. (Part 1)

Feb : Roadside Motor Inns were used for makeshift Casual Isolation.
Dongas were used for Chinese OZ Repatriation (Operation Berdi)
23rd March -Jewel Crisis, Libs Hotwired Jerry for a favour > Hot Hotels were born.
The need for ICU beds was the deciding factor to crash residential Hi-rise at 4am.
Aspen guided 5 to Hospital & 1/4 superspread on exit.( A hurried Hot Hotel start!)

Thus grew Lib Donors Jerry Schwartz & Jamie Packer's Hot Hotel chain reaction.
All those Crawl Spaces & Creepy Coops without windows or UV come alive.
Packer's Crown Croupier Jane...runs the Hot Hotel show & reviews it herself.
The bodycorp / residents tell Jane who they hate least Cops/ADF/[457] ( simple! )

37,000 Aussies are desperate to Repatriate

Scomo's New Year Priority imports...(*Ready to rocket up the charts!)
Slaves > Asian Starshots > Tennis > Kiwis > ADF > Aussies > Sport > *Asian Uni.

Arrival Stats
27th March 2020-15th Jan 2021
NSW 114,000 HH
Qld 32,218 HH + 8,442 VIP's (25%)

2020 Weekly Arrivals (NatCab Agreed *2x increases for Start 2021)
NSW 3,000 / *Qld 1,300 / *Vic 1,120 / WA 1,025 / *NT 250 (Tas-ACT-SA 1,000?)

2021 (Envisaged Weekly Changes)

*NSW 1,505 / Vic 1,120 / *WA 512 / *Qld 500 / SA 490 / NT 500 (due to build)

Qld Jan 2021 NatCab cap was climbing to 2,600 ( UK Mutants ) > Now 500
That's 80% o's cap backdown + 3 day lockdown for just one Hot Hotel Mutant!.

2021 Scomo's "VIP Mutant Invasion !" Unaccounted Sky is the Limit
NT - 300 ADF travelodge Cluster + 2000+ o's Starshot Gromz VIP Iso (shh! )
Vic 1,240 { Stranded Aussie's Open } #1 VIP o's covid spreading tennis entourage.
Yes! Also yet another Scomo / Dan Covid Rally...durr! (I never served up Covid!)

2021 Foreign Student New Year weekly Targets
NSW 1,000 +[457] / ACT 350 / SA 300 / WA -/ Qld -/ Vic-extra Student Quota
Vic propose Quarantine on Uni Grounds.(Dongas one day Skyscrapers the next?)
$2,500 ticket /63 Students fly to NT Quarantine paid by CD Uni (Sen Lambie -No)

o's Uni Students Petition needs 12,000 by 10th Feb (Easy!) re: 3,000 votes a day!

Farm Workers (Standard)
March 2020- 140,000 (Standard)
Sep 2020 - Down to 73,000> (Pacific Islander Flights) Labour Mobility Scheme
Dec 2020 - 110,000 Pickers (Farmers now order a slab of slaves thru Darwin)

Scomo "Get Lazy Aussies off their Arses to have a Go!"
500 Aussies/day apply for Farm Work & All are constantly told to fuck off!
Qld / NSW / Victoria never mattered, soon as you say Aussie the farmers hang up!
Farmer's Top Responses...(1) Aussies are Lazy (2) We gotta Pay them. (Fuck that!)
Real ADS : [ Working Holiday Maker Only ] [ Must have WHV visa to apply ]
Fit Aussie 34 y'o guy put in 20 applications..."Told you to Fuck Off...No Aussies."

Some still get Passports confiscated / Earn $3 -17hr

Innocent story best examples how [457] Charters are wearing out Darwin Dongas.
All Foreign Slaves fly in to Darwin on unaccounted VIP Private Charters.
Here a Tas farmer buys a Plane of East Timor Slaves from Darwin dongas. Beauty!

Feds are paying for Donga Upgrade from 500 to 850...(Limit is 3,000)
Exempt or Extra 150 Pickers or 1 plane load / week for farmers.
Each donga Quarantine is rewarding more flights...(States & Unis are watching!)
Whereas each additional Hot Hotel is breaching > reducing flights > Dividing Oz.
Scomo's Hot Hotels are the root cause of Clusters / Hot Spots / Lockdowns / Walls.

Qld & Vic want Dongas & Pop Ups away from CBD. (Dan had asked from Day 1)
Feds / Nsw Libs are shocked. We can't abandon Lib Donor Hotel Chain obligations.

Hotel Hotties can't get enough of Aussie Dongas
UK Mutants go weak at the knees at the mention of Aussie Dongas.

Revenge of the Dongas...(Part 2)
82% of Aussies prefer an Outta Town Hot Donga over a Mutant City Hot Hotel.
Note Qld has 18 Hot Hotels on the go! (tbb had no idea & guessed 6 tops?)

Oddly each Quarantine venues argue the very same attributes...
Hot Hotel > Close to Inner City Workers > Transit Best City Hospital.
Each sneeze forces City /State /Oz Lockdown Panic (Wiping $Billions off economy)
NSW luvs their owner's donations, so are wed to them. (Say : Dongas are gross!)

Donga > Onsite Workers > (Isolated from City Transit + City Hospital).
Emergency Transit will not lockdown Camp / Town / City / State / Oz > (Zero loss!)
Hot Hotel CEO Jane Halton thinks Dongas are Safer but don't tell my boss that.

Qldurrz will share recent Mutant scare....
Scomo's Hot Hotel Rules reveals Qld Weak links in Hot Hotel.
Lib Donor's unrentable $3,000 Kreepy coop crawl space, comes with broom handle

*Open window can't be guaranteed + No Air for exercise / No UV / No breaks. (Die)
UN + WHO (Together) You Fucking Monsters > (PM / Qld shut the Fuck Up! x 100)
UV + Air + Outdoors is essential to ward off virus.(Qld Hot Hotels spread the virus)
[+] a/c 12 cycles/hr (vs) Hot Hotel 4-6 cycles/hr ( Cleaner never entered UK room?)

Other Hotel a/c spreads were between floors...(Possible piggyback a/c lay-out)
This resembles the nearby rows a/c spread in Plane Seating..( a/c is the weak-link)

Amazingly this a/c shut down Oz Travel & Quarantined Millions...70 cops still out.
WHO : 'Just switch on Shower Exhaust for 3 hrs prior & during clean.'
Cleaners to wear goggles (tbb: Cause Pinched Mask pulls down on eye lids)
Note: Cleaner's Goggles will fog from Mask leakage! (tbb: Wash Goggles in Sudz)
Crew can appreciate just how vulnerable & futile ones defence is! This is a WAR!
2021 Year of the Goggles...(Too late! tbb called it!)

Hang On tbb! How are Dongas any better! ( They boss individual a/c ) No Spread!
Premier: 'They have fully accessible Balconies'
Howard Springs has many cases but no Transmission between staff or community

Quarantine must have Cams....most would find it odd that Hot Hotel had none?
March 2020 was the initial & last CCTV check to comply with Fed Scheme rollout.
Qld Police are now retrofitting cams on each floor of all now 18 hotels.
Every aspect of the Floor... (This comment mirrors Fed Govt all level access...)
Nothing sinister but more as Suicide or Covid watch as emergency assist.
tbb is not saying cams are in each room only that the scheme suggests such.
Police vow to step up Patrols.

The point here is that Hot Hotels require more Policing / tech & create more Chaos!
Both Qld & Vic Premiers want to expand more options as NT / PM has.

Qld want to share Rockhampton Airport with Singapore Forces / ADF.
1,400 Calliope Dongas

Qld / Vic can't just opt out...Hot Hotels is National & needs States / PM approval.
Note Qld / Vic want nothing more or less than what PM / States ticked for NT.
NT dongas are growing the Oz Economy while all other states back pedal.
Sure! The Donga may not work as well Oz wide but none can deny their insurance.

Here's a very good article to finish with, all the options of change are laid out...
It shows all naturally came to the same place in time to improve Quarantine.

AO purposely spread covid in foreign land >Courts, Hotel, Hospital wherever. Cool!
AO Women played in nearby Dubai + Comp / train in nearby Abu Dhabi > (Fly Out)
AO Woman's Coach Sylvain Bruneau is believed to have infected both Cities.

recap AO leave 3 cities infected with Covid & now bring it back to Oz on a Plane.
It was reported that one of the Ubu Dhabi crew is infected (Non AO.)
Emirates Airlines have just pulled the pin on Oz with 50% loss of Repat flights.

Confusion: Players & Officials must Test for Covid
Oz or AO have no requirement for pre flight tests -Coaches, Physio, Media.
When AO say all tested negative...that can only read as those under their format.

Meanwhile US flight dumps a stack of covid on Oz.
A crew member / Another Coach / Broadcast Crew member.(AO Qatar related?)

2 Players / 2 Coaches / 1 media / 2 x Flight Crew = AO > 7 covid cases / 5 cities
Not even Poirot is gonna track down AO Covid Qualifer, still not started Main Draw.

What is the difference between the Test series between India and Australia and the Australian Open when it comes to quarantine arrangements?

Short answer = Nothing both groups of international sportsmen and women are required to quarantine. The fact that some of the tennis players and/or officials have Covid19 on landing in the country is incidental.

Now if your issue is letting sportsmen and women into the country before stranded AU citizens your anger needs to be directed to the Federal Govt and its Slow-mo prime minister. The pandemic started 12 months ago and our responsibility ducking PM is still to accept his legal duty and arrange proper Commonwealth run quarantine centres.

I don't firmly sit on the side of open borders or for closed borders (probably learning a little bit towards open borders, or at least being more transparent for a plan to re-open borders).

Health said passengers from the '4th Plane' case weren't asked to Isolate?
Aspen dodge bullets & superspread until media pull them up! (New Gold Standard)
Will Aspen trace crew virus or Nations that the 4 planes superspread...(Fuck it!)
Notice that a Player handled Plane's Stair Rail (Renowned filthy viral Hot Spot)
No instructions on touching deadly Red hot spots without gloves.
Renowned Aspen carelessness wins acclaim as Platinum Standard. (A sick joke!)

Nobody will notice those Cyber Fence wrist bands the Player's are trialling...Shh.
Umpire Jane Faults Players when they breach...Beep Beep! [ Exterminate ]
So these Cyber Wrist Bands are being trialled for Aussie Gigs & Work Places...durr!
Does it hurt, do you cop a fine, lose pay or job, get evicted...or divorced?
Well, should hope so...why else would Scomo Trial them...
Have spotted a few on Practice Courts + on a few players in Hotel Rooms...
Unsure as to who requires them or Trials them...(Shedderz or Iso?)
This Vid shows a few...Pause [3:17] to see the E Prisoner Vibe goin' on.
Pro Tennis Players (Wrists) are a robust test for Mosh Pit wrist band read outs.
(Tricky!) Select Video: [5:43] "This is how we protect the community." Ok!

tbb is just saying...there's a lot more goin' on here & Dan is once again the Fall Guy!
Note it was Scomo who fired up & shot across the bow at anyone who touches /\O.

The Media don't tell us shit about Tennis Games / WHO Lab / Pfizer Deaths...
They ain't got the guts to rip apart this $Billion No rules No Tax Aspen Lib' rort.
We know what we gotta do...just blame Dan for the wrist bands...way too easy!

Oz Open...
Media report 10 cases, the reality is 14 then Tiley halves it down to 7 covid cases.
Tiley shedderz clear the list & reckons they're back superspreading the courts.

1) The 3 original players that /\O banned from playing namely Murray are watching.
2) Murray has not forfeited his spot in the Comp & may yet be the only fit player?
3) Murray may shed Quarantine to rock up on the day onto centre court...huh?
4) The other 2 may question why Tiley banned them but not the others in Oz?
5) If many /\O Qatar players are 'Shedding' then how many spreading there & here?
6) Qatar are spiking new cases since /\O Comp...Does Oz Govt -/\O-Media care?
Do Libs "Aspen" trace there own deadly strain in Qatar? (As usual, don't look back!)

Making up new laws as you go is fine, as long as others can use the same backdoor.
Oz jaws will drop if Murray blows out the wot just happened?
Just when you think it's gone off the rails it creaks & groans as it goes off the cliff.

Should've just played 'Footy Tennis' for the VIP Quarantine upgrade...
Boofs get 100 Pub breach Credits + Drug Runner Pass + Get outta Jail free Card
Oz Wagz get a brand new Island resort & Pool Boy for each fingernail manicure .

Footy Boofs : How come we never got that stinky undies suffocation upgrade?
Footy Wagz : How come we weren't offered that Rat infested Tennis Bitch hair do?

Check out Oz Boof Rock Star Quarantine (vs) THEM the Aliens.

Tennis Chix are not worthy of Wagz Quarantine Pamper Packs.

Oz public : "Don't waste our precious Aussie air on Posh Tennis Slagz." Go Wagz!
Posh Euro Trash can just pay Scomo the $1400 for a balcony, like the rest of us!

If any crew still think States run Hot Hotel then ask why is Scomo stopping Qld?
PM is screaming for more Quarantine options > Oz Repat & Farmers

Qld / WA want out of OZ Hot Hotel lockdowns for a Regional Quarantine Plan...
Libs Scomo & NSW won't let any State break free of their Hot Hotel Rort!

Vic are OK with Qld's Plan.
Human Rights : " Yes Please ... Let the Human's breathe!"

Qldurrz share another Quarantine Plan. ( Few will know of it! )
Not a dig at the states but rather the cost sharing arrangements is the hold up.
Also this Plan only launched in October so needs a review before any wide support.

1st Oct - "The International Quarantine Plan" (As said currently only in Qld)
PLS : Pacific Labour Scheme
SWP : Seasonal Worker Programme

*Qld Govt Health + Border Force cover Airport Entry fees.
*Farmer pays for Total Quarantine Cost & Govt services.
*Zero Cost Quarantine for Foreign Work Force
(Yes! Free Quarantine for foreigners!)

Pretty much what crew expect...The Farmers pool to charter a full PLS Direct Flight.
Cairns/Bne -temp* > NPPC Regional flights ( Re: Darwin hosts PM's rent a slave )
Farm Bus must have on board WC to save a Toilet Stop on route.
Private or Site visit GP Tests from days 1 > 3 >10 negative to clear Quarantine.
If Positive then isolate + a reset 14 days for remaining contact group.(Blah! Blah!)

(The 'Working Farm' doubles as a Quarantine Facility + On site Sleep Quarters)
The idea has merit as future schemes may be flexible to barter the quarantine cost.
Dan is under pressure to rework this into Foreign Students fees in Vic Uni quarters.
Tip : PM has hinted 2nd term arrival for foreign students > Q Plan is needed!

Here the Farmer's choice is limited to 2 options...(1) Slave Master (2) Slave Master

(1) Farmer Lives, Works & Quarantines with Pickers & Farmhands during Harvest.
He can still yell, scream & whip them & shoot at folks who breach Quarantine.

(2) Need a Pervy Backpacker cam for yer Rape Dungeon + withhold 2wks pay.
Pretty much business as usual but without the beatings & yelling...(Tuff Gig!)

Each Planeload > is a separate Quarantine Harvest with own Quarters.
One flight can separate but Several Flights can't congregate.(re: Q reset)
The support security staff operate as an adjunct that supports rather than engage.
This affords flexibility of crews to separate or team to address random Quarantine.

Pro Cult leaders would align Teepee communes with Crystal healing stations.
Pretty much the Job Description requires self sufficient Green Tech communes.
2021 should rollout an industry of Safe Havens / WC mini buses / Village gardens.
Could be a good thing as Farms can't access City utilities so each would innovate.
Most importantly each Farm would need to recycle each Quarantine...Clever stuff!

Qld / Oz could get this right & by sheer size & low covid...could lead this field.
There is no doubt that flexible low cost Quarantine is the Future & Oz can do this!
This weds Oz Healthy natural innovation & Love of Nature (Perfect Oz Brand!)
Pop Up Eco Quarantine doubles as essential frontline to Scomo's **StarShots* *

Funnily (or maybe not so) though, we do rectal swabs on all ICU admission and discharges in Vic, as per DHHS guidelines. We're actually screening for VRE (vancomycin-resitant enterococcus).

Overrule on /\O Umpire's controversial 4 day extra Court Hire.

Covid Superspreader Shedder swans Centre Court with 4 days jump on rivals.
Unsportsmanlike or just plain Batshitcrazy...

CDNA (Umpire) rules Shedderz Hot Hotel release after 3 days clear on Day 10 test.
Haven't got the heart to tell the experts it still takes 7- 20 days to ID a Mutant.

Oz Mutant Tour Lay Days
Note Oz guarantees Mutant Vax but still struggles to ID one!

WA 16th-20th Dec Tests > 5th Jan = (20 days) to ID 3 UK Mutants
Qld 22nd Dec Test - 29th Dec = (7 days) to ID the 1st SA Mutant.
Vic 26th Dec Test -Qld 5/7th Jan Test > 9th Jan = (14 days) Interstate Mutant.
Qld 29th Dec Test -7th Jan = (9 days) to ID Mutant Cleaner
NSW 30th Dec Test - 7th Jan = (9 days)to ID Mutant Mothership 6x UK / 4x SA.

National Cabinet voted to lockdown the Mutants.
6th Jan Vic' > CDNA updated Shedder rule to Lockdown 'Mutants' for 14 days.

Vic /\O -(15th-23th Jan) = (8 days) to ID 3x UK Mutant Tennis crew
Vic /\O -(21-28th Jan) = (7/8 days) -(?) > P Badosa (Mutant or Baseline Grunter?)

So what if Mutant's are in our Beds before their plane lands.
Oz Mutant 10 day Test result exposes our Airlines fake 3 day / 30min Tests
Not one Airline can guarantee a Vax Pass or 3 day test against 50% + Mutants.

tbb knows little of such, so is definitely not trying to be smart about this...
Only know that it takes 5x as long to ID the most contagious variant? (That's news!)
So why are Media withholding this vital news from Vax / Test / Quarantine debate.
Consider if all new tests take 5 x as long ...that's a Mega staff shortage for rollout.
About time we had that Mutant Talk! Is this why the UK / Europe came to a Halt?

Mad Professor's Covid 'Cycle Threshold' for PCR tests (The Lab tests).
0- 12 CT = Neutral Read
12-15 CT = Peak Covid (ICU) Say yer prayers.
25 CT = 70% viral (35% will lead to death)
Authorities regard these Shedder Spreaderz as less of a risk than Zero Cases.
31 CT = 6% viral (Disease Plateau) or Hot Hotel Day 10 Shedder Release.
One last peekaboo before being charged with insubordinate "Covid Test Tabling".
38.4 CT = (Cough) Still not Clear of virus...
Old School advanced tech that's way too honest for Covid Era.
40-44.9 CT = Borderline Contagious zone (Pollies slip dust covers over this gear!)
Junior Scientist Lab Test Alien tech buried in bunkers beneath Area 51.
45 CT = 0% Negative (All Clear) Covid Test was confiscated for being too sciency.

Footnote : Old Chart was geared for Ye Olde Person's Covid & needs ramping.
All new strains are more contagious so Day Ten release is now seen as criminal.

How sporting that sickest player who locks up rivals is rewarded prime Court Time?
Superspreader Mutant serves up pet food to his Rape Dungeon Penthouse Pets.
Oz Tennis survival challenges > Heat exhaustion > Bush Fires > Rape Penthouses.

PS: /\O allowed [+] Qualifiers to play until a dead rubber was certain (fixed).
Delaying 2 Test Results knocked out 3 spots so Aussie advanced into Main Draw!
The players are right to question & can point to all level /\O Covid Test corruption.
Time to Go ... Aspen!

Come on Spuddups...don't credit them for their painfully excessive usage of state border controls.

As for being a quiet achiever...well...they've been the lucky ones so far. And that's what 99.997% of it is - luck. Hotel quarantine is a gamble, a fairly safe one, and something which is becoming safer, but it aint water tight.

Interesting to see that basically no lock downs/outbreaks have come as a result of state border travel - it's all failed quarantine and coming in from overseas. I'm no advocate for closing the international border anymore than it already is. In fact, I'd like to see it relaxed, but with better quarantining and testing. a Victorian all I can say is you're welcome. The state's have quite well adopted the 'go hard and go early' strategy which is yet to fail, and surely a lesson learnt from the Melbourne story. Don't worry Perth, it'll be over before you know it!

I doubt I'll forget that faithful month of July 2020 when we started with localised lockdowns of Melbourne suburbs....followed by whole city at Stage 3....followed by masks, curfews and 5km travel limits. I can't quite remember the specifics but I feel we were essentially locked down from mid July to end of October...with about 8 weeks of strict lockdown thrown in, and weeks of uncertainty over when (or if) it would ever end. Makes me chuckle everytime I see the media storm whip up over these tiny little lockdowns of just a handful of days!

@Stok "Come on Spuddups...don't credit them for their painfully excessive usage of state border controls."

The issue with WA that Federal and State Liberals contently avoid is that the states mining / oil and gas is under pining Australia's wealth regardless if people like it or not.

Any of those sites get a single COVID case that's the end of that shift and the money train stops.
