  1. Past hour
  2. However the Brits have much more pressing issues at the moment !!
  3. Today
  4. Restrictions eased in NSW stadiums. Opening round can have full capacity but we all know it won't be
  5. Another "Up Yours" to the conservative Morrison Govt the Brits https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/dec/02/net-zero-emissions-by-2050-target-climate-summit-president-thanks-australian-states-but-not-morrison-government?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other
  6. And further evidence of bullying by the conservatives of the Chief of the Defence Force, Angus Campbell. No pressure, but 'concerns' expressed by Scott Morrison to Defence Chief on decision to strip citation from Afghanistan special forces http://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-12-02/meritorious-unit-citation-no-pressure-concerns-expressed-defmin/12941524
  7. Local media tend to 'big up' minor successes of our players/coaches overseas....take Arzani for instance....by all accounts he's still struggling but every now and again there will be a big headline about him killing it when in fact he's only come on as a late sub in an U/23 game to set up a goal.
  8. Damn I heard he was going quite well over there after I saw all the reports of him winning his first match or whatever it was Guess he’ll be coming back to Victory then?
  9. This seeming level of state power is because the National Cabinet decided on a combined and collaborative approach where the number of arrivals are decided jointly between the Federal and State Governments: ”This means, the number of arrivals at each international airport will be subject to caps agreed upon between federal and all state and territory governments. ” https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/information-overseas-travellers-coronavirus-disease-covid-19#who-can-enter-australia-from-overseas

    Given the way the defender just stopped and let him walk it in I wouldn't be surprised if there were are suspicious number of bets on a 4-0 result.
  11. Thats right... its become about money .... Only NSW and even then limited has worked hard at increasing there numbers... Vics are back on board and thats good ... The conflict seems to be about funding and the number of officials involved in managing those returning... The states don't want to spend revenue on increasing the number of hotels / motels that can be used nor allocate the personal required to manage any increase ... the Feds appear to want the states to pick up the tab for increasing weekly numbers... I read a opinion piece the other day, suggesting ways of reducing the costs and it essentially involved doing rapid testing and questions, with the view of being able to release a number of people in a week ... and hold others for two weeks... however it could be impossible to sell to the general public given the two large outbreaks have been with broader break downs, first in NSW and then VIC...
  12. Interesting article https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/30/opinion/trump-conspiracy-germany-1918.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage
  13. The White House is rotten to the core........ https://www.rawstory.com/2020/12/doj-investigating-funneling-of-money-to-the-white-house-for-a-pardon-report/
  14. Only after clearing customs. My point is that blaming the states is wrong because they shouldn't have to decide in the first instance. Returning citizens are a C'wealth responsibility. They have the final say on when they can return to Aus. Unless you're a "special" case like a minister,rich or own a media empire ( a la Kerry Stokes ) you have little or no chance at the present....and that is wrong. We have facilities to house people for 14 days or however long isolation is so we should be utilising them. It shouldn't rest solely with the states saying yay or nay. This is where the Feds are failing. I would have the same opinion regardless who was in govt. Lib/Lab/Nat or Green
  15. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Even that cheating Barr admits it...
  16. Yesterday
  17. US politics live updates: Donald Trump's Attorney-General William Barr says no evidence of widespread voter fraud http://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-12-02/us-politics-live-updates-barr-contradicts-trump-on-voter-fraud/12941244
  18. Muscat sacked 14 games into the season in Belgium - report Kevin Muscat has been reportedly sacked as head coach of Sint-Truidense after their 3-2 loss to Royal Excel Mouscron in the Belgian Pro League. : https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/article/2020/12/02/muscat-sacked-14-games-season-belgium-report
  19. Didn't this whole argument originally start with a discussion about how many returning travelers each state was willing to take? Given that NSW has been complaining about taking the majority of returning Australians and that the other states should be taking a larger share, it appears that the states do have a say in who comes into their state. To say otherwise would be to claim that the states have zero say and that the federal Liberal government is choosing to force a state Liberal government take the extra load while letting the state Labor governments get away with taking a smaller share. Given their response to the NSW and SA Liberal governments actions vs their response to the actions of Vic and Qld Labor governments that seems unlikely.
  20. I mostly agree with Mack and Marron My difference is more to do with how information was presented I think Sally Rugg's tweets (and the replies) here are interesting - concerning to what extent the Four Corners team were able to show sexual harassment Also ...
  21. 100%. Not sure if the investigation nailed it but the whole boys club thing is an issue worthy of a close look too, especially in this day and age.

    Not so much if they finish bottom of their group....which seems likely.....
  23. the Maradona one today is up there with the best. I know that gets said a lot but it's a magnificent concept, just nails it. https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2020/dec/01/david-squires-on-diego-maradona-murals
  24. You'd have to think so with the heavy schedule coming up....problem is that Corica will now continue his "we can beat the best in Asia" bullcrap
