BREAKING state to reopen to Aust and world on Nov 23, Premier@marshall_steven reveals, which is the new magic 80 % #covid19 vax rate and a week earlier than previous forecasts predicted. Quarantine still needed for unvaxxed people and those from outbreak areas #Adelaide

Here’s Abbott,the most destructive politician in generations,offered front page of Murdoch’s rag, pontificating on “lessons learned”! Like single-handedly destroying Aust manufacturing & the car industry? Killin NBN for Murdoch; Killing the carbon price? #MurdochRoyalCommission
Cartoon in the Oz today is missing its punchline. Let me add it: Aust: 25 mill popn, 583 deaths Sweden: 10 mill popn, 5821 deaths. If we had the same death rate per head as Sweden, there would be about 14,000 Australians who couldn't laugh at this cartoon because they'd be dead.
