This ought to be interesting when the bubble "pops"
Australia has it all - one policy from the Australian Government - we
must protect jobs, elimination is killing Victoria, New South Wales is
doing very well - a poster state for the country, if the borders are
open then there is free travel from NSW to Victoria, because the
borders have not been closed and what states do is up to them . . ..
Victoria have said we do not want a third wave, we do not want people
to travel from NSW to Victoria (and if they do then Vic, SA and WA
will put them in quarantine at their expense).
So in Melbourne at least the population is getting mixed messages;
they didn't follow the rules, and have had a second wave, but they are
still annoyed at restrictions and blame anyone else for their own
Not on the interview, but Sweden didn't have those restrictions, the
USA haven't had those restrictions, and look at them . . . .
Then the classic Aussie / NSW political problem - for the Liberals (as
for the National Party in New Zealand) paying too much for assets is
OK because they will be worth more in 30 years - in NZ selling of
assets for less than they were worth was OK because a few locals got
part of that profit . . .
New Zealand has just voted for people before profits, sharing
prosperity before crony capitalism, kindness before nastiness.
I can't see New Zealand lifting isolation requirements for people
entering the country from Australia in a hurry . . .
