Accused Minister to front media

It’s an understatement to say Australian politics is murky. It’s actually a whole lot worse than that – and that’s just based on the allegations! The truth could bring down the Federal government.

Risky homecoming

For the first time since October, Victorian health authorities report a person with COVID-19 is being treated in the intensive care unit of a hospital. — Read on http://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02-09/victoria-covid-numbers-after-hotel-quarantine-worker-cases/13133862 I very much understand Australian’s who are stuck overseas and want to come home.

We’re in this together. Not.

Here we have Scott Morrison, Australia’s Prime Minister. A member of the Pentecostal cult. A person who I would not trust to take my order at a fish and chip shop. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the sycophant #ScottyFromMarketing has bleated about us all being in this together. Keep in mind he was theContinue reading “We’re in this together. Not.”
