I think it was the plan all along, threaten the no jab no play for a few months, spook those on the fence then open the flood gates.

Better than leaving it to choice or chance.

Even those that have a Drs certificate now have 2 weeks to lodge a form. Then the certificate to say they are exempt from covid Vax will be linked to my govts account like ours are.
And that’s a “positive” Trev?

Funny isn't it: when I read Trev's post, I read it as supporting your point of view. Then, when I saw your responding post, I had to reread it thinking that I had completely misinterpreted it. Now that I've read it again, I don't think it's discussing the point of control at all. I just read it as a statement of fact/info.

Looking forward to my first road trip this side of the lockdown, albeit just one day. Taking my elderly neighbour to visit her sister (who has dementia and a neuropathic complaint) near the Big Merino, and then on to Canberra for my Gumtree score.

I’ll loan my user account to someone for the day - that should liven things up.

Could you imagine the outcry when the inevitable tax increase would flow through to the tax payers!!

I agree that it is not an ideal position to have businesses 'police' this themselves, but I can't see any practical alternate.
Fair point. But in reality it isn't even needed at all, and the burden shouldn't be placed on business. If we are over 90%, who cares if some un-vaxxed go and do things. They are more at risk from the vaxxed than the vaxxed are from them. This is where it has gone off the rails, cause it's not based on reality.

Or do what most other countries are doing, rapid tests. They should have been pushing this if they really cared about public safety, and not scare mongering rubbish and forcing people to comply via underhanded coercion. A rapid test actually proves whether a person is covid positive or not, while someone who's allowed in cause they are vaxxed might be carrying it. But people like Dan Andrews would rather demonize people, and use the pandemic to get control over the masses by turning people against each other. A tactic straight from the communist manifesto.

That's how they marked the Lee Enfield 303s, so you should also add the broad arrow to the forehead for the Victorians, cause of their 'special legislation'.

It makes sense to me for everybody to be on the same page (app)

I might be old fashioned though

Only as much as the businesses choose to lose by not allowing unvaxxed customers into their premises

77 new cases and no deaths for NZ so CMR is 0.475%.

The UK had 43,453 cases yesterday and 263 deaths for a CMR of 1.579%.

82,062 new cases in the USA yesterday and 1,776 deaths sees CMR at 1.635%. Note that the CMR has started to rise again after falling steadily the last two months.

Other notable points:
Europe moves above the 90th percentile for case numbers;
Oceania passes 300k cases with 54.3% of those coming from Australia (along with 46.2% of the deaths);

Estonia (2,025) - the previous high on 11/03/2021;
Latvia (3,206); and
Singapore (5,324)

... recorded new highs; those in blue for the second consecutive day and those in red for a third or more consecutive day.

Finland and South Korea move above the 90th percentile for the 10 day period while no countries drop below.
russ we had a two shops deep cleaned due to covid, they are a popular haunt
for the schoolies.. do you think they sudden rise is due to return to school policy??

I wouldn't be a ***** about it, but I will make sure the person asking to see my vaccination status knows that this is utter bull****, despite me being vaccinated.

The ridiculous thing is the government is forcing business's to do this, and leaving them to deal with the outcomes. A lot of these young hospitality workers will be left to cop the brunt of this, while the government staff who created this don't have to go within a mile of it. Slimy.

I wonder how long it will take before someone gets bashed over it? It's only going to take one nutter in a bad mood. Doesn't take much to trigger some people these days.
The powers they have are to be used to think for folk who cant think for themselves, a lot of dummies out there in "covid-land" and some one has to gee them up to help them make the correct decision.
Too many followers and not enough leaders, you can call em what you like but in reality they are of low IQ and opine like, they need to be helped along the way, there is nothing wrong in that!

We are currently seeing the current hysterical demand's to curtail people freedom and their speech,
Especially with the current era of lock-downs and coerciveness drives in effect to force people into life long medical subjugation.
In effect we took freedom for granted; In 2020 with into subscription model, no six month needle no freedom for you... communism at its best..
