THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

One thing I will never be able to accept is telling AUSTRALIANS they can't come home, and if they try, they'll be thrown in jail.

I don't know what the answer is, and of course we don't want COVID back in our communities, but this just comes back to the complete fuck up that is hotel quarantine. Why we are quarantining people in the middle of capital cities is beyond me?

But something about banning Australians from returning home really doesn't sit well with me.

It is remarkable how incompetent the Government is. Not only did they not do anything beyond the makeshift hotel quarantine. They didn't even plan for what to do if an outbreak got really bad somewhere overseas. What have they been doing? Definitely not planning to get us vaccinated anytime soon.

I keep meaning to look this up, was the offence something they came up with in the moment? Or just some part of the bio security act that was put in place?

As I'm a stickler, they still could return home. Just not if they had been in India for the previous two weeks. Another example of shifting the responsibility onto others by the Government. Letting other countries take the burden for us.



There are so many of those ads. Plus I don't want to get trapped in Melbourne if dictator Dan decides he wants a lock down.

This is another one of those complicated areas. People expect to be locked down, locked in and locked out with state trouble. Yet not for International travel?

I've taken the risks a few times of getting locked down in Northern Queensland. Ah, I went as soon as the border reopened in December. It was so amazing to have gone from lockdowns to spending a few days on the reef diving. Then drinking in bars and socialising.

Well Queensland is a great place for a holiday.

I LOVE TNQ! Such a beautiful and diverse place.
