    Is AU about to be less dumb?

There are huge chunks of Morrison’s position that I disagree with, but I’ll focus here on the parts that I do agree with. Hopefully AU can stop setting such a bad example of living with endemic COVID.

〃A focus on case numbers was very important when we knew nothing about this virus and whether our hospital system would be able to cope. ¶ A lot has changed since then. Increasingly we need to look beyond just the case numbers to know what our future holds. How we can keep safe and how we get our lives back in a Covid world. ¶ Case numbers are important, but they are not the whole story.〃

[…]

〃Shifting our focus from just case numbers, to actually looking at how many people are becoming seriously ill and requiring hospitalisation will be increasingly what matters. After all, this is how we manage all other infectious diseases.〃

[…]

〃Just as we’ve seen overseas in places like the UK, even when their case numbers tick up, their hospitalisations and deaths are not increasing at the same rate and remaining flatter and at rates like you see with the flu.〃

[…]

〃But our focus needs to be on the rate of people being hospitalised. That’s the measure that should now start to guide our response. ¶ Rising cases need not impact our plan to reopen, and reopen as soon we can. I know it seems pretty dark now, but it’s always darkest before the dawn, and dawn’s coming. So please hang in there.〃

Maybe our colony will follow suit.

    Morrison? Who’s he?

Australian attitude to our politics.

If it wasn’t for Morrison dragging his feet with the clot shot, I wouldn’t have known he was PM of Australia.

His legacy will be that he saved Australia from Megga Death.

That other bitch who rounds up school children and injects thousand at a time is going down as Ma Baker, or worse. I heard tell that she (it?) has killed two kids already. Does anyone know anything more about this case?

I will not, on principle, pollute the sanctity of my soul by subjecting it to ABC dross. Besides, my blood pressure is under enough stress as it is.

This may be slightly hopeful:
