The funny thing about Australia. It's an island continent that is one entire country. The country governed by the elected Prime Minister, a Senate to check on him. a Governor-General to make sure we all do things Queen Bessy would approve of.
Then there are the states and "state rights." A kind of bastardisation between the USA and the UK. Where in the UK there's England, Scotland, Wales and the Northern Ireland (and the Isle of Mann that nobody wants to claim). Or the United States where you have all the states - then New York (and California that nobody wants to claim).
While Australia has enjoyed strutting around, feeling good, pointing to other countries and saying "Crickey, look at the bloody foreigners getting this COV stuff all wrong..." little did they know the "Premier Mao Ze-Dan" was setting up his own little piece of the CCP.
While most Aussie state Premiers happily accepted the help of the Australian Defence Force to help guard citizens returning to Australia from COV-ID hotspots. Not so Premier Dan Andrews.
Dan, with no tenders, moved in some left-wing friendly private security buds to guard those Corona-ites kept in some of Melbourne's luxury hotels. For a few hundred spare millions. Those canny private security firms saw the opportunity to deliver a level of service befitting of the privilege (and graft) afforded them. But outsourcing their outsourced services to - a bunch of Uber drivers.
So, in keeping with the Labour Party frolics the guards, when not sharing cigarette lighters with the quarantined - slept with them:
In the meantime, Victoria Police were put on the front line to combat errant Learner Drivers for learning to drive endangering "all the old people"
Not to mention the fisherman who were banned from fishing. In case they spread COVID to... to... But - they were allowed to do yoga instead of fishing.
Of course, during this time, visiting your Mother for Mothers Day was banned. But, protesting in a throng of more than 10,000 people for "Black Live Matter" and those loveable enthusiasts for all things
logical and sane - "The Extinction Rebellion" - were all fine. Not going to spread the virus. Not ever. Not a little bit.
Now, Premier Dan is no stranger to Skullduggery or Moonbattery. During the previous to last state election campaign, Dan used Taxpayer-funded employees to run around a spread the Good News of the coming Labour Messiah. Which is illegal under a whole bunch of electoral statutes that don't apply to the Labour Party (so it seems.)
Somehow - mostly by stacking the Victorian Police force (Dan - and indeed Labour - is good at stacking, more further down) with empathetic bureaucratic wanna-be cops.
Plus - because we must always be looking after Chinese Interests - Dan chose to blast a deeper hole into Port Phillip Bay so the Chinese could get bigger ships in screwing up fish stocks for decades with poisonous trace elements. Then dump all the silt just offshore from bayside beaches instead of "wasting money" moving somewhere safer.
Realising he had fallen well short of selling out the interests of the people he was elected to represent Premier Dan delivered, what most ignorantly thought was he coup-de-grace, the sale of the Port of Melbourne to the CCP.
Now. You could be mistaken for thinking there was a pattern here. Dan's just doing a few faves for his good buddies in Beijing, right?
No!!! Dan thinks bigger than that.
Enter the bigger "deal." Yes. Premier Dan got on the blower to his drinking buddy, President is Xi Jinping - and said:
Dan: "G'day, mate."
Xi: "G'day Comrade"
Dan: "Need a few dollars to build a bunch of things around town. You still got that free money from the CCP thing going on?"
Xi: "You mean the Belt and Road Initiative? Sure. How much do you want?"
Dan: "Geez, mate. How much have you got?"
Dan: "I'll take 100B and I'll buy you a round of Vic Bitter."
Clearly this left a few people around Australia in shock. Politicians, economists and banks, mostly. But when the news broke it was big, except it broke with more of Dans Dirty Deals. Making it less big. Because the media filmed a politician using the "c" word. And... and...
Branch Stacking. Yup. Understand. Branch Stacking is - and always has been - a serious hobby of the Australian Labour party. They have struggled with it for years. It's very embarrassing.
Especially when pesky deceased people insist on continuing to vote, for Labour, often decades after they are pushing up the daisies.
But this time it was all captured on video by news crews. Hardly anybody stopping to wonder how news crews from two companies could plant cameras inside Labour Party offices. Just in time to film right faction MP's
discussing with taxpayer-funded staff how to gate crash and assault a left-wing Labour factions political meeting in a private home.
Because it was just too juicy. Meanwhile, the Federal division, run by the left-wing faction Dan is a member of, declare no voting rights for the Victorian branch until 2022. To "fix the corruption."
News cycle's forgotten about "Belt and Road." The leftwing faction has complete control of Victoria.
How much can a koala bear?
Bringing us to the present. A COV-ID outbreak. Spread mostly through our Arabic and African communities. Suburbs now under police lockdown. Public Housing towers under police lockdown. No getting
in. No getting out.
Yes. The state with the most authoritarian lockdowns in Australia is now locking down one month after opening back up - ripping bleeding chunks from the CCP's "Wuhan Municipal Big Month In."
The military - that Dan didn't want - are today being deployed on the Victoria/NSW border. To stop the
Mexicans - er - Victorians - from escaping across the border.
It's times like this I'm glad my father was a Brit and I still qualify for a British passport and Visa. Providing nobody has any problems with the other half who hitched a ride on the second fleet for stealing bread, or sheep, or something.
To add virus spread context I managed to omit. Our security guards, after sleeping with quarantined folks, went home. Spread the virus to family and friends. Went out for coffee. Drove their Ubers around.
In short. Not a VirusCluster but a ClusterFuck.
LOL, Dave Scott Kane, damn fine to have you about mate.
And real good to hear your country's as fucked up as all of ours!!

After I posted this rant it got worse. 111 days of lockdown. We broke a world record. 23 hours a day of that in your own home. One hour for exercise *or* a trip to the shops.
Enough to make some people try and crucify themselves in frustration. (Don't do this, I tried, no way to get the last nail in.)
We are *still* under a state of emergency which the arse is trying to extend till December 2021. Yet - zero cases other than returned international travellers in quarantine.
The level of corruption is gobsmacking it turned out. Probably coming to a town somewhere near all of us in 2021.
