Lockdown #5
« on: 19 July, 2021, 01:21:20 PM »
Presently in a State-wide lockdown thanks to the Delta variant of Covid escaping into Victoria. We are restricted to within 5km of our place of residence. And there are only five reasons to be away from it: care giving, essential work, education if it cannot be done from home, for medical reasons, and to get vaccinated... The lockdown was supposed to cease any 2400hrs this evening - but has now been extended due to increasing infections. We won't find out how long it may continue, until tomorrow morning.

We are apparently free as from yesterday but most people will continue wearing masks. I vowed some time ago that I would not venture on to public transport.  Boris old foe, the vengeful Dominic Cummings, is at it again telling all.  If I was an employer I would not employ him ever.  Most people take him for what he is a chap riddled with fury at being sacked so he is getting his own back.  >:(

These lock-downs are getting tiresome  >:( >:(

We, the great unwashed, are being 'led' by a bunch of inept political operators  whose sole aim (regardless of political persuasion) is to get re-elected.
Their decisions are all driven by 'medical advice' given by 'chief medical officers' - quite a useful wall for the political animals to hide behind.

I am not entirely convinced that the medical experts are totally across this virus and its morphing mechanisms. 14 days incubation period seems a bit convenient to me.

Apologies, this is a bit 'off topic'.
What I am convinced of is that country of less than 30 million souls needs three levels of government. It  is time the states (and territories) were dispensed with.

Rant over. I look forward to any comments (pro or con) on both topics.
