    Karen 👱

    I read it means a privileged white woman. Or a white woman who thinks she is privileged. I had never heard it before reading that Central Park story today.

    Wait Times for Benefits

    You should apply for jobseeker if you are unemployed now and not yet at pension age. They expect you to look for a job but you will get $1150 per fortnight, plus i got the one-off $750.

    Wait Times for Benefits

    When JobSeeker was announced in March they removed all Assets Test and Waiting periods for new applicants. The only test in place at the moment is the income test. I took advantage of this myself. I had been living off my savings having left a job in October but quickly applied when they announced that.

    Are we coming out of isolation too soon?

    To test that assertion i had a quick look at BBC News website. The 2nd or 3rd story on the front page is an Australian story. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-52811744 I actually see a lot of Australian interest stories on BBC.

    Moving back home to UK

    I just hope he really wants to go back to the UK after living in Australia for 50 years.

    The Beer Connoisseur Thread

    Yes i do drink but usually only when i go out. If i have alcohol at home in the cupboard i will drink it. Would be the same with chocolate and biscuits. But i prefer alcohol to be an occasional thing not an everyday thing. It is probably healthier not to drink.
  10. Brian May of Queen had a heart attack. I'm glad he is ok.

    The Beer Connoisseur Thread

    Don't be silly Parley, most people enjoy a drink after a days work........ Why spoil that.... No they don't. Have a drink on Friday after work. Not every day after work.

    The Beer Connoisseur Thread

    Is cheap alcohol really a good idea in 2020. Shouldn't it be like cigarettes ?

    Not much of a scandal as scandals go.

    Off Topic Coronavirus 2020

    Anyone can die from the flu. In Australia a couple of years ago we had a terrible flu season. Lots of young adults, children perfectly healthy but died from the flu.

    Not as bad as Professor Pantsdown.

    Everyone is recommended to get the flu jab not just the vulnerable. We are all vulnerable actually.

    Off Topic Coronavirus 2020

    The issue i see with these types of articles is they are based on figures from a locked down community and use them as a reason to fully open up. The infection rate can blow out from current figures very quickly if care is not taken.

    Covid 19 - was Australia's strategy right?

    Hard to believe. Mine was approved within 1 week back in March. They have been very generous I think.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Is this thread about random drugs we take ? I take ventolin.

    Covid 19 - was Australia's strategy right?

    JobSeeker payment has been doubled. This was done very quickly by Morrison and Freydenberg with Assets test and other usual criteria removed (waiting periods etc). They really acted very quickly. They have done a great job.

    When has it ever been 44c in England ? Never. You must have meant 44 F

    The Official Weather Thread

    The first 5 months of the year in Melbourne have all been significantly wetter than the monthly average for rainfall.

    Hardly considering he created JobSeeker and JobKeeper.
  25. Both UK and USA need to join the 21st century and adopt the metric system.
