    I always admit it when I am wrong. However you do need to take care how you interpret my words. Something you can improve in......and then admitting when your interpretation was wrong would help, Parley.

    Because you have no shame?

    Are we coming out of isolation too soon?

    With NSW keeping their borders open to Victorians I cannot envisage COVIDSAFE States like SA, Tasmania, NT, WA and Queensland opening their borders to NSW and Victoria any time soon, sadly. Queensland wants and needs tourists but visitors reintroducing the virus here would be an own goal. Footy stadiums here are being opened up to 10,000 fans next weekend as life starts to return to somewhere near normality. No community transmission here for several weeks now.

    Exactly. And the absence of a vaccine left health workers exposed to contracting the virus and suffering a PPE regime that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. In addition many had to isolate themselves from their immediate families for weeks on end. Such a scenario is unsustainable for any lengthy period hence there is really no alternative other than to reduce cases to a small number. No country has been successful without quite drastic measures.

    Temporary move to Oz with 7 year old - worth it?

    I certainly experienced hotter days in Surrey than I have in Brisbane. Our small bedroom with poor ventilation in England would be just as hot and humid at night as here during those spells. There are obviously more of them here but the house is designed to be cooler and we have air con to make it comfortable to sleep. Sydney does get higher summer temperatures than Brisbane. Something people don’t realise.

    Pointless really then as presumably anyone who visits would be quarantined on return.

    England gets that too, to be fair.

    Baffling that you think it is commendable that Australia and NZ have so few cases of the virus and deaths whilst deriding the reasons why that is the case. Very few people die from skydiving so why do you think they go to all the trouble of manufacturing parachutes and the skydivers strap them on. You really do not actually understand this whole cause and effect thing yet.

    It seems that the Constitution then is open to multiple interpretations unless the SA premier is unaware of it.

    Lets face it though, Quoll, you find Australia unbearable, fullstop! As you are fond of recounting.

    Just seen that WA, Tasmania, NT and SA have opened their borders to each other from midnight so COVIDSAFE States are now doing this. There is a strong case for Queensland to be added too.

    It is looking like all over Australia we may have seen the end of community transmission of the virus with the exception of Melbourne. A daily trickle of new cases popping up in Melbourne every day seems to be the main impediment to getting the State borders fully opened up across Australia and an international travel agreement with COVIDSAFE countries such as New Zealand..

    UK to end its reliance on coal.

    Yes, so many of the utes and trucks here leave a trail of black soot every time they accelerate away. You cannot open your driver window here sadly.

    UK to end its reliance on coal.

    Before you beat the drums too loudly for Germany you should be aware that, following the Fukishima disaster Germany closed most of its nuclear capacity and boosted use of coal (particularly dirtiest brown coal). Renewables have risen too but the net impact on emissions in Germany in recent years is negative.

    https://www.energymatters.com.au/energy-efficiency/australian-electricity-statistics/ Here is the current data. We are lagging way behind the UK, sadly. We should be crushing them given our geographical advantages and small population don’t you agree?
