You all realise that any anti Chinese commentary will be reported to the committee. In the new order your assets will be seized and you will all be relegated to street sweepers as contributors to the 100% employment rate statistics. But not me, I'm a special agent who's role it is to draw you into revealing yourselves. Even this statement is a trick.
Gazz, remember "Nixon's Enemies List?" It was considered an honor to on that list. And Tricky Dick was on Mao's. And of course everyone was on J. Edgar's list.
Certainly this post is made with a sense of humor!We are seeing the advent of bubbles. Areas, countries, regions, etc, that have assumed a zone of isolated safety from at risk zones. So here in Australia ( OZ ) and New Zealand ( NZ ), ( our new 7th state ), we have the Tasmanian ( Tas ) bubble and the separate NZ bubble. There's talk of NZ and OZ creating a trans Tasman joint country bubble. Tasmania is talking about opening their bubble to low risk states such as South Australia ( SA ) and Western Australia ( yes, WA ) to create a multi state bubble excluding the at risk states, Queensland ( Qld ), New South Wales ( NSW ) and Victoria ( Vic ).
This strategy introduces a degree of bubble complexity that has some inherent flaws. So what if SA admits the Northern Territory ( NT ) into their bubble? We now have a cross over of bubbles with Tas not originally admitting NT. And what if NZ and WA form their own WANZ bubble? An alliance Tas didn't think of first.
I can see an imminent explosion of bubble politics.
It’s not a policy issue. Like all things COVID related, it is mostly a human behavior issue. Agreed that children touch their masks. They also touch their eyes, nose, and mouth with no mask on. I have two small kids and I have been on them for that long before COVID. So if I had to chose between a kid handling their mask and sticking their finger in their nose, I would vote for the mask.Masks (use of) is a good example of a policy that has been implemented without proper forethought.
