    Got woken up this morning to a lovely bunch of flowers from my son. It seems being in ISO has thrown his timing out because he thought it was Mother’s Day today.

    There are about 5,000 people doing their 2 week isolation in Australia - mainly NSW. It can't be very pleasant shut in a hotel room but it doesn't cost them anything and they get 3 meals a day, a TV and phone in the room and it's for 2 weeks not 2 months. A small percentage of them are complaining bitterly about it and stating they are suffering from anxiety, depression and a couple of them say they will have traumatic long-term effects. After watching the V E Day celebrations on the telly I thought to myself people are so much softer now than they were 75 or so years ago.

    Trump just actually happens to be a xenophobe anyway so accusing him of xenophobia is like accusing him of being President of the US. Interesting that he stopped certain flights but then didn’t direct any preparations. Probably thought job done. Every single statement that he has made himself on this issue (obviously all other issues too but we can stick with this one) has been palpably incorrect. All those stupid statements I referenced earlier were not supported by any scientists. Is there anything at all that he can say or do that would make you fall out of love with him? It is odd that you think that I should be in possession of more information on this virus than the US President. When he spouts lies and nonsense people actually die.

    I think it is necessary when there is unemployment at 10% or higher in the existing workforce. The first priority has to be getting the current unemployed here already working again.

    All cases everywhere are linked to overseas travel - from Chy-na. It no coincidence that countries with the most pourous borders are fairing worst.

    Hi everyone! The deed is done! We are Australian Citizens!! The presiding officer was very pleasant...the whole process was very quick and efficient. Had to hold my ID up to the camera and move it back and forth until the name and number was clear enough to be read by the officer. From what the officer said, it appears they are still ironing out issues and that soon the daily ceremony numbers were going to be picking up. It’s taken us 12 months and a bit from application to ceremony. Wishing everyone the best of luck with their applications. So many people have been so helpful with advice and support(a big shout out to all the migration agents on here whose advice and guidance have helped clear up so many concerns/queries). Thank you all...we’re in this together and I’m so glad that we have PIO!! Hang in there everyone...

    I didn't watch one episode of it either. There was an Australian version too. Never watched it. I don't understand what people get out of 'reality' TV.

    If my daughters's experience is anything to go by once you are in contact with an infected person they will advise you to self isolate and regularly text or phone you to check if you are experiencing any symptoms. Presumably if you show symptoms they will advise you to get tested.

    Hi Guys, Just to share some news, Today the department of home affairs rang the company I work for to speak with the director. They wanted to confirm if I have been still working here. So I would say they are working on something, hope this is a positive outcome but we never know.

    Given he was elected with a large majority with everyone knowing his situation, it clearly is irrelevant to most people. It has no effect on his ability to the job which is what people care about. Of course Carrie should beware of the old adage "If you marry your mistress you create a vacancy". But other than that I don't think people care too much. He has told the electorate I think what is personal situation is and hasn't hidden it.

    I think the routes they can take to get here will always be too extensive to fully police although we should be doing more. What needs to change is what we do with them once they’re here. Nearly all get to stay, that’s the biggest problem. It sends the message to all that if you make your way over you’re a winner. Unfortunately I doubt anything will change though.

    Both of my daughters had a good education at a good school - no pressure from myself or my wife , as regards results - too many horror stories. A lot of their mates went to uni , because that was the natural passage , being pushed and promoted by the school . Neither of my daughters did , and they have both landed good jobs - not just jobs , careers , with various career paths , that are transferable , internationally . All I have been , in this process ,is dad - shopping bag carrier , carthorse and unpaid taxi . Too much pressure on children these days , to HAVE IT ALL . And the vast majority , its unobtainable.

    You want to actively be tied into a country whose leader advocates injecting disinfectant and a country whose totally inadequate social infrastructure has collapsed since coming under the pressure of this pandemic, our own govt has almost put us in the same position with their slavish copying of the US and you still think the US is going to rescue us. The US is no longer the country of Roosevelt and Eisenhower it is the US of the Koch bros
