Bob Carr has called for the unvaccinated to lose all Medicare benefits.

that veneer of fake compassion sure does rub off easily doesn’t it.

Yes, yes it does.

Great. Then I dont have to pay as much Tax. Also, fatties, smokers, motorbike riders, etc etc shouldnt get treatment either. After all, it was their choice if they get sick or injured.

What a fucking unhinged lunatic. However I wouldn’t put it past the fascist assholes running the place.

You can see it can’t you; while you were ramped after being sent to a hospital far away, you’re told to sign over your heart, lungs, liver, kidney, eyes and anything else, as surety before you can get any more treatment, because your last booster stopped covering you as “fully vaccinated”, an hour ago.

And before anyone cries, “unhinged, far fetched”, remember, EVERYTHING that’s ‘normal’ now, “could never happen”, a blink ago.

This report is starting to do the rounds of the net ln the US. Maybe the beginning of the “walk back”.
Unfortunately the governments here will keep going full bore ahead for 90% vaccination.

“https://www.rebelnews.com/bill_gates_admits_covid_19_vaccines_dont_stop_viral_transmission”>

I had a chat to the local GP about Novax a couple of days ago and he informed me that he doesn’t expect it to be released until next year, maybe early, maybe later. Someone here mentioned the other night that a doctor relative I think, told him that it won’t be released here at all.

Bearing in mind that info and the fact that here in QLD a friend of a friend has been refused a knee replacement unless vaccinated, I have very very reluctantly decided to have the Pfizer as I am in the group considered at risk. Also from 17th December, unless the chook has enormous pressure applied, lock outs from just about anything except food will be enforced, for those not jabbed.

Fair comment, Sal – you can stand on the sandhills at ANZAC Cove , and see the memorials showing just how far the Anzac’s got inland.

Two anecdotes, if I may – the largest and most prominent memorial in the ANZAC area of operations is to the New Zealanders, on Chunuk Bair – the plaque reads “From the uttermost ends of the Earth they came” – all the New Zealanders I know say that’s a right and proper thing.

Standing in the Turkish cemetery, listening to a puzzled voice, with a very pronounced American accent “There’s no crosses on these graves, Grover. They never put crosses on the graves of these brave men. No crosses on their graves.”

The awestriking standout that grabs you at Chanuk Bair is how high & steep, and how long, is the climb.

I reckon the New Zealanders climbed 2,000 feet (not all of it vertical) then fought a bitter & savage hand-to-hand battle.

I knocked up just looking at where they’d had to climb.

Not so long ago the ABC was claiming the problem in Western Sydney was climate change.
Pretty obvious the real problem was concrete jungling.
I’ve been driving a bit more in the inner east these last few weeks, all the major roads seem to have been rezoned for high density developments, with either new building started and groups of abandoned four/ five single family dwellings awaiting demolition.
I’m hoping my new town house neighbours enjoy their long hot summer.

6 to 8 weeks?

“Novavax (NVAX) is getting some momentum for its two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, starting with a series of emergency use fillings globally and the first authorization in Indonesia this month.

The company is on track to file with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by the end of the year, and has already called for a meeting with the agency to move forward, according to CEO Stanley Erck.

Erck told Yahoo Finance Live on Wednesday that the company expects to hear back from the FDA “very soon” and believes Novavax could receive up to five authorizations in the coming 6-8 weeks globally. But a majority of its distribution of actual doses is likely to start at the beginning of 2022″

This may be a dumb question. If banks are offering zero or near zero rates on deposits why would anyone lend them anything other than enough to cover expenses etc? So I suppose that bank deposits both long and short term wouldn’t come anywhere close to financing the banks lending, even with fractional reserve systems. So where do the banks get the money they lend out?, What am I missing?

Well, made the sad but inevitable decision on the dog and booked him in for tomorrow, Saturday, he’s fairly comfortable but can’t stand without help and I have to admit at my age, 73, lugging a 45kg animal around ain’t a picnic .. eating like a horse, with the subsequent outpour(s), makes for a lotta luggin’ .. LOL! Plus with the rain here I’ve got him in the kitchen/dining room, biggest clear space room area and the tiles make for easier clean-up .. gonna need a thorough effort tomorrow afternoon ..!
Then again, this ain’t about me it’s about, WEMBLEY, a Labrador just turned 14 (hadn’t realised he was that old until I pulled his paperwork out, yesterday!) .. Never been a problem, luvved kids and spent 8 years as a blood donor so did his bit .. but now it’s time .. probably, a month later than it should be but that is down to me and my to my stupidity letting my sentiment surpass his quality of life ..!
The final ignominy tho .. is I can’t take him thru the door cos I’m UNCLEAN so my daughter will walk him thru those final steps ..
Apparently, my money is acceptable BUT my presence is not! ..

From the Oz…I can’t see the full piece because I’m not yet at work…

“Abbott calls on ‘quiet’ culture warriors
Tony Abbott has declared ‘it is time for the quiet Australians to speak up’ and for centre-right political leaders to become cultural warriors.”

Well, here’s my reply to Tone…..

Hi Tone, nice to see you speak up and blurt out the bleeding obvious but please forgive me for dredging up the past, I need to ask you, sincerely, why didn’t you “speak up” about this eight years ago? I remember when, in September 2013, you were elected PM in a landslide, the likes of which we’ll probably never see again. But I then quickly noticed how you, like a mouse, went into hiding after the election and then the following ominous signs appeared…

1. You quickly slapped “quiet Australians” in the face by appointing former Oz Democrat leader Natasha Stott-Despoja to a plum position…so Tone, is that how you fight a culture war?

2. You refused to accept the resignation of Quentin Bryce as GG, despite the fact that her son-in-law became Labor leader, thus making her position untenable. You played nice, well Tone, being nice doesn’t win wars…military or culturally.

3. You and your government stayed quiet over the Bill Shorten rape allegation. Now whilst that might have been the right thing to do in 2014, I ask the question…..”considering what’s ensued with Christian Porter and how the left never miss an opportunity to use lies and fabrications to destroy political opponents, would you do the same again?” Because Tone, if you say “yes”…..then your new found “cultural warrior” words are just bullshit.

4. Speaking of Porter, you and your government refused to deal with the ABC…thus further enabling its out of control bias.

5. You allowed the MSM to dictate a nasty narrative about you, you were comatose in the face of MSM lies and smears…..where was your “cultural warrior” in the face of this?

6. Tone, I’m curious as to why you didn’t take legal action against GetUp after its infamous lifesaving advertisement back in April 2019, an advertisement which both smeared and defamed you. Get back to lecturing me me when you actually want to practice being a “cultural warrior”….instead of just parroting words.

So Tone, just a few thoughts about your noble call for “cultural warriors”, I agree 100% however many of us here on this site, we “quiet Australian Cats” have long been cultural warriors. Yet we also stupidly and naively once looked to you and others in the Liberal and National parties to speak up for us, to fight these cultural wars yet all we’ve seen over the last decade is supine appeasement from you and others.

Anyway perhaps I’m being too harsh on you…you’re a decent bloke and I’m pleased you’ve seen the light about “quiet Australians” and “cultural warriors”. But I hate to disappoint you, you’re eight years too late and that ship has sailed.

To be thrown on the Captain Obvious pile of why dergs are good boys (the Hun):

A Bendigo woman‘s dog has become a hero after stopping a would-be intruder last month.

The woman was home alone with her dog when she saw an unknown man at the back of her McCrae St address about 11.20pm on October 13. The man, who remains on the run, entered her lounge room with a large knife in his hand.

He threatened the woman and made demands for cash before the woman’s dog lunged at the offender and grabbed his arm, before pulling him outside of the home. The victim was able to lock the back door after her dog ran back inside with the man fleeing via the side gate in an unknown direction.

Good dog. Good dog.

I’d also ask why he didn’t push on with the 18C deletion. Sure, it looked like it wouldn’t pass, but those who would have voted it down are the ones who’d be left looking wrong to the people Abbot seems to want to stand up now. Very weak political move to abandon that.

We have been standing up, but it’s difficult to get traction when common sense is derided as old-fashioned, far-right and whatever other insulting tags the media and the unthinking like to attach to us.

The LNP just do not seem to understand the very people they think they’re “representing”. Really, they have no idea. Useless grifters. Worse than useless, actually.

Australian banks borrow on international capital markets in AUD and more commonly USD. That is how we will import US inflation and why the RBA will just be another onlooker when interest rates start to rise.

I guess that’s why I just can’t help feeling a tad angry when Abbott, eight years after the party, tries to stir up the “quiet Australian” and “cultural warriors”….I suspect only to vote Liberal. I sense he probably knows the fury felt by many of us now former Liberal/National voters. As I wrote above, like something out of a Fellini film set on the eve of World War I, the ship has sailed and and we, former Liberal/National voters are on that ship lost and we’re gonna watch the electoral carnage from afar.

November 11, 2021: the day the great war against the private sector was won
Stephen Spartacus The Spectator Australia 12 November 2021
Without the slightest hint of irony, the Australian Bureau of Statistics yesterday released the latest Employment and Earnings, Public Sector data for Australia. On the eleventh day of the eleventh month, Australians learned about how many people work for our bureaucratic leviathan. The data showed the war was over. The Australian private sector has clearly been defeated. The war is over and government has, as in the old joke about auditors, come in and bayoneted the wounded. For all the economic damage of Covid, it is party, party, party in the public, public sector.
To paraphrase the words of Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili (Stalin to his friends), a single private sector destroyed job is a tragedy; a million destroyed jobs is a statistic. So, let’s go to the statistics.
In the 12 months to end June 2021, the number of public sector employees across the three levels of Australian (Commonwealth, State and Local) government increased by 3% to 2.1 million.
Yes. In a country where the working age population is 12.5 million, 2.1 million people work for the government. One in six people.
Let’s put that in context:
It’s four times the population of Tasmania.
Nine times the population of the Northern Territory.
Five times the population of the ACT.
One and a half times the population of Adelaide.
More than the population of Perth.
But as bad as this sounds, it’s really worse. Much, much worse.
These numbers don’t include overseas posted diplomats or those in the military. It does not include “off-balance sheet” employees such as those working for government business enterprises such as the NBN, Australia Post or the Clean Energy Finance Corporation or various state government (still) owned energy companies.
Excluded also are ABC and SBS staff and those whose jobs only exist because of government such as lobbyists and the compliance industrial complex. For the cherry top, it does not include those in the multi-billion-dollar consulting industry that feeds off the taxpayers. That includes you, KPMG.
There is of course no aggregate data on such “jobs” people, but Australians should not be surprised if one in three or four adult Australians work for or because of Government.
Give the collective near two trillion dollars of combined Commonwealth and State government debt, it is clear that our governments have outgrown the private sector and have decided to confiscate from the future, from our children, grandchildren and beyond. A whole new meaning to intergenerational equity.
Yet notwithstanding the expanding rings of government-related employment, the collective cash wages and salaries increased for these 2.1 million public servants by 5% to $183 billion. Billion with a B.
And notably also, these numbers don’t include post 1 July 2021 pay rises or new roles created. Nor does this include all the additional on-costs associated such as rent, insurance, Cartier watches or chartered planes to Glasgow or Paris.
But Victorians should fret not. Its public sector had a great pandemic.
Victorian public sector total wages and salaries increased by 9% reflecting both increased costs and an extra 19,000 public servants. This compared very well with a national (State and Territory) wages and salaries increase of 5%.
Did the Victorian economy grow by 9%? No. Did the Victorian population grow by 9%? No. But the cost of the Victorian public sector grew that much. So many achievements for the Andrews government to be proud of in addition to the world’s longest citizen lockdown (or was that lock up?).
In another positive sign for the prospects for Australia’s private sector, it is reported that business, accounting and finance graduates are flooding to work for the public sector. Sort of ironic that there are fewer business or finance jobs in business or finance any more.
Australians are like slow boiling frogs. We are on the road to Venezuela without noticing. Or is that Venez-stralia.

Detectives in Victoria Police’s fraud squad urged force command to consider arresting and prosecuting up to 16 Andrews government MPs over the “red shirts” rorting affair, according to highly sensitive internal police briefings, but their plan was knocked back by senior officers.

The secret police files from late 2018, the contents of which have been confirmed by three whistleblowers, reveal that detectives were directed by high-ranking officers to make sure that 16 named members of Parliament “not be arrested, photographed, searched if they are interviewed”.

The files also stated the intervention by senior police was to remain a secret.

Presumably you are talking about a growth or balanced type fund. They hold bank shares directly that get inflated by the same central bank actions that suppress the returns on deposits.

Cash and bond funds would be well under 10%.

Super funds really only get special tax laws. They can only make the same sort of investments as the rest of us.

Good comment Cassie. Abbott was the biggest failure this century as PM. All the other PM’s were failures too begin with. People here blame Credlin for much of his failure. Not in my book. He had no idea what he was going to do once he got the top job. Every other PM said hey I’ll do whatever I like. Stopping the boat deaths was the one thing he got right and every day in parliament he should have belted the Scumliars with it. Along the lines a question to Leader of the opposition, “on day 125 of the previous govt. how many people died on boats? Get every minister answering questions saying I’ll have to get back to you on that and on day 126 of your previous govt. how many people died in boats? It takes whatever point scoring the opposition has to zero. They stop asking Gotcha questions after a while. On a similar point I always thought our previous “Host” as much as I admired him for the Old Cat, seemed to lose the will to live so to speak after the failure of so much potential to materialise.

WA’s COVID-free status will attract international university students to Perth

Western Australia’s relative safety from COVID-19 will form a key part of its push for international students, but the sector’s recovery still hangs in the balance.

For the first time since borders closed at the start of the pandemic, international students will be allowed into WA when the state reopens early next year.

International students, from countries with large covid case numbers, will almost certainly be allowed more freedom of movement than the pureblood Australians.
….
Ms Ellery is confident many international students will come to WA in time for semester 1 of 2022, which is due to begin in late February.

“I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t [return], they’re enrolled now and the universities want them back on campus, they have visas and they’re waiting for flights,” she said.

“The view expressed at the meeting yesterday was semester 2 is looking great and semester 1 is a bonus.

“If you were a mum or dad sitting in Singapore or anywhere else, thinking about where you might want to send your 18- or 19-year-old to get the best education, Western Australia is one of the safest places in the world to do that,” she told ABC Radio Perth.

However in a remarkable near first the ABccess story also paints a different picture.

Survey finds Australia no longer ‘open and welcoming’
But a survey of more than 1,000 education agents from 70 countries by education provider Navitas paints a different picture.

Australia continues to trail in being open and welcoming, and is no longer being considered safe and stable,” the organisation’s head of strategic insights and analytics, Jon Chew, wrote.

“Australia lags behind both the UK and the US on the ‘safe and stable’ measure for the first time since the pandemic took hold.

“Australia has now lost whatever limited reputational advantages it enjoyed during COVID-19.”

Well done All levels of Australian governance, you have demonstrated you are pricks to the extent people would rather go to Resident Bainworms or UKlowntowns country than ours.

There is only one true way to make money and that is to create something of value to someone else. Not what I think it is worth, that’s what governments and councils charge for services. The hardest part is not in the creation but in keeping others from appropriating the funds from your effort for themselves. Paying a minimum of tax 20-25% is fine to keep the the hordes at bay and infrastructure to support the nation. Anymore is in the realms of usury.

Unnamed soldier identified more than 100 years since falling in WW1
Sarah Ison
The West Australian
Fri, 12 November 2021 2:00AM

An Australian soldier killed in the German trenches and buried in an unnamed French grave more than 100 years ago has been identified on Remembrance Day.

Lieutenant James Mark Kennedy was part of the 26th Battalion in the Australian Imperial Force and fell while fighting in the trenches 300km west of Paris in 1916.

The 37-year-old left for the Boer War from Fremantle at the turn of the century, before signing up for service again in WW1.

On his way to Egypt to fight in the Great War, Lieutenant Kennedy met nurse Lottie Kendell.

Despite both being in active service, the pair fell in love and wed, before welcoming their son Bruce into the world.

Lieutenant Kennedy was injured on the Western Front and was sent to England to recover and be with his wife and child. But rather than retire from active service, the Victorian-born soldier returned to fight.

Sadly, he was killed just weeks later on November 5 1916, after his unit attacked German trenches near a defensive position known as “The Maze”.

Lieutenant Kennedy’s body was not discovered until 1925 and was buried in an unnamed grave in France.

Veteran Affairs Minister Andrew Gee said modern historians had worked for years to find out his identity, which they discovered thanks to a Boer War service ribbon.

“Through a process of elimination and identification, it was able to be determined that that particular grave was in fact the final resting place of Lieutenant James Mark Kennedy,” he told the West Australian.

“I spoke to his grandson, Mark, last week and they were absolutely delighted that his grave and his resting place has now been found. It’s a very emotional time for the family, but they regard it as a small miracle that over 100 years after he fell, Australia has still been now able to identify him.

On the Kaliphate of McClown…

I wonder whats causing this crisis??

A nurse at Hedland Health Campus in WA’s Pilbara says staff shortages are so “extreme” she says expects to delay inducing birth in pregnant women.

“We are sometimes … expected to not “establish” a woman so we can care for two [other] women in labour,” the nurse said.

A nurse at the Pilbara’s other major hospital, Karratha Health Campus, also used the survey to report “unsafe” staffing levels, saying at one point there was no nurse monitoring patients in the emergency department waiting room.

“We had no triage nurse one day over the weekend and the ward clerk was left to call the shift coordinator each time there was a triage,” the nurse said.

“This is extremely unsafe with no nurse monitoring the patients in the waiting room.”

At the other end of the state, at Bunbury Health Campus, staff reported receiving multiple text messages a day, effectively begging them to cover extra shifts.

“Country WA relies on a lot of staff that come from overseas and interstate and whilst initially we could deal with some of the sort of changes in the willingness of staff to travel, over 20 months [of COVID] it’s become more and more challenging to access the supply pipeline that we normally do,” he said.

And there it is, because we cant import 2nd world nurses to paper over the cracks we cant even produce or keep the number of relatively low level health professionals we need.

Also the article is extremely quiet on the losses of purebloods who have left rather than be forced to comply to keep their jobs.
https://www.6pr.com.au/nursing-union-expects-up-to-700-resignations-as-vaccine-mandate-comes-into-force/
The Australian Nursing Federation (ANF) says they expect to have “between 400 and 700 resignations” as vaccinate mandates come into force.

From today, healthcare workers who want to access tier one facilities such as Intensive Care Units or emergency departments, must have had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

ANF Secretary Mark Olson says the resignations will not change the union’s position as one of only two unions Australia-wide to support vaccine mandates.

“I know the average number of resignations for September is around 52 to 55,” he told Liam Bartlett on 6PR Mornings.

“We’ve had 210 last month.
“We know that around 150 have resigned in relation to this particular issue.

“We had around 100 the previous month, and I’m expecting, all up, we’ll probably have between 400 and 700 resignations.

“It doesn’t change our position.”

Tooling about on YouTube (as ya do) I see Amnesty International is on another one of their campaigns.

They ask how well you know Australian History, and the first question is “Has Australia Day always been on 26 January?”

“A-ha!” thinks I. This is about changing the date of Australia Day. (Small clue flashing the Aboriginal flag on the opening challenge.)

I think you can be a pretty decent Australian without knowing how far back the association of the celebration and the day go. In fact if I saw someone having a barbeque with the kids on 26th January who had no idea how far back the day was selected, I would feel far more at ease with them than their neighbour who said the proper date should be 8 May and barbecues cannot be tradition since they did not have barbecues in 1852.

It is not that 26 January has to be the day. What these people want is government and its departments to declare that is should not be 26 January. That day is bad. What happened on that day is something to be ashamed of.

Well, I am not ashamed.

Amnesty International may have started out with noble intentions. They may still do a whole lot of good in some places. But in Australia at least they do seem to lack discernment and damage the brand.

Fun little article.

Applies to Austfailure in spades.
https://www.takimag.com/article/a-sorry-state-2/

Britain has pioneered and is now a world leader in a phenomenon that might be called legalized corruption or corruption without breaking the law. This allows private looting of funds raised by taxation and government borrowing on an unprecedented scale. Combined with the moral and intellectual corruption of such services as the police, who indulge in para-police activities such as eliminating hatred from the human breast while ignoring burglaries, arson, and assault, value for money has become a concept without meaning or application.

I regret to say that I think that Mrs. Thatcher, blamed for so much, was unwittingly responsible for this situation, at least for getting the ball rolling. She found the British public service inefficient and left it inefficient and corrupt. This was because she had a faith in management as a science that could be applied by any manager to any organization. She failed to distinguish between business and businesslike. Naturally, public organisms ought to be businesslike, but so long as they are paid from public funds, they are not real businesses. Those bureaucrats who ran them, however, soon arrogated to themselves the perquisites of real businessmen, as they conceived them, without ceasing to be public service bureaucrats. And the most talentless of them proved to be, in the pursuit of his own interests, infinitely more intelligent, or at any rate more cunning (and ruthless), than Mrs. Thatcher.

Terry McCrann, Paywallian:

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Your economic and financial future is in the hands of an incestuous combine of the most spineless and most incompetent people on the planet on the one hand and the greediest on the other.
The first group are the people at the Fed – the Federal Reserve Board and its Federal Reserve Bank members – who have spent the year literally and utterly incompetently not seeing the rising inflation all around them in the US, and then pretending the inflation wasn’t real.
The second group is of course those ‘masters of the universe’ that infest – and that word is used very deliberately – lower Manhattan, mid-town, indeed anywhere there are $US10m, and higher, condos, and Long Island and in particular its eastern end.
A competent Fed that was actually prepared to do its job and discharge its responsibilities would have long since abandoned its QE money-printing and already raised its policy interest rate by at least two full percentage points.

It hasn’t done so because it is thoroughly incompetent and has long since disgracefully sold out to Wall St.
To have done so would have sent Wall St plunging (and, I might add, our market as well), slashing trillions of dollars from the values of US equities – and US bonds – and contemporaneously upended the multi-million dollar salaries of all the Wall St ‘mates’. To repeat what I wrote last week after the Fed’s latest exercise in spineless incompetence at its policy meeting, all you really need to know about the Fed, was captured in Wall St’s response overnight Wednesday to that stunning 0.9 per cent monthly inflation.
Annualised, that’s inflation of more than 10 per cent! For the whole 2021 year it will top 7 per cent.
The longer the bubble lasts the bigger the ultimate bust.
In late September, the Fed was ‘forecasting’ 2021 inflation would ‘only’ be 4.2 per cent. Utter incompetence; it makes our Treasury’s budget forecasts look good. So traders looked at the number and yawned. The Dow eased just 240 points – all-but a rounding error for a Dow at 36,000.
Those traders know that the Fed will continue to sell out the vast bulk of the American people – from those earning $US15 an hour and are struggling to survive with soaring prices of life-necessities like food and heating, up to an including the rapidly vanishing ranks of ‘middle America’ that might be earning between $US40 to $US100 an hour.
The Fed will continue to sell them out to the aforesaid Wall St vermin, who earn anywhere from $US1000 to $US100,000-an-hour, riding the Fed-created and sustained biggest bubble in world history.
Faced with the very real and rising inflation, last week the Fed only committed to the gentlest of QE-tapering – it will still keep printing $US100bn of new money a month, further pumping the market, and left its interest rate at zero.

A competent Fed, a responsible Fed, would have responded to the inflation number with a 180-degree U-turn: immediately abandoning all QE and raising its policy rate by 50 points. That would have sent the Dow down – 5000 points? 10,000 points?
No, that would not have been catastrophic; it would have been a return not to, but only towards, sanity.
Don’t worry, short-term. There’s not the slightest prospect of the Fed doing anything even the tiniest bit responsible. It will bend over backwards to keep the bubble bubbling.
But worry, really worry, long–term. The longer the bubble lasts the bigger the ultimate bust.
And that’s before, thinking about China – the China that has saved both the global economy and help boost Wall St and other markets.
That China is clearly disintegrating. What exactly is replacing it, nobody knows, but it is not going to be good.
Anybody who claims to tell you is a charlatan.

Did the Victorian economy grow by 9%? No. Did the Victorian population grow by 9%? No. But the cost of the Victorian public sector grew that much. So many achievements for the Andrews government to be proud of in addition to the world’s longest citizen lockdown (or was that lock up?).

If one looks at the bureaucracy as a parasite, it will coninue to grow, no matter what effect it has on the host.
If the parasite was sentient, and knew its demands would kill the host in a years time, it would still continue to consume the host on the 363rd day.

It was really great when they produced a wheat variety we could grow below the edge of the wheat belt, as the pea companies went out of business just after that.

In spastics gunna spastic news,…

Perth airport will become the first in the country to acknowledge the Indigenous names of Australian destinations on boarding gate signs.

The West Australian newspaper reports that boarding gates at the airport’s domestic terminals will rotate between the commonly used place name and the name used by the traditional custodians.

For example, a flight to Adelaide will now read as both Adelaide and Kaurna country.

This will be rolled out across terminal 1, terminal 3 and terminal 4.

“Perth Airport sits on the traditional lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation which once formed part of their traditional travelling networks.

“Today, we are a part of a modern travelling network – one that takes Western Australians to all corners of the globe and, also welcomes people from around the world to our home.

“Our airport is often the first and the last point of connection to the vibrant and unique cultural heritage of our State’s Aboriginal people, so it makes sense to recognise the Traditional Custodians of destinations for departing passengers.

“We also know that international travellers in particular are fascinated by Aboriginal culture and want to understand and experience it first-hand.”

Terminal 2 is not included in the rollout because there are no screens at the gates within the walkways, while Terminal 1 international features a Welcome to Country for arrivals.

why are Western Australians standing for this?

Because Sneakers was elected with a thumping majority, based on panic, parochialism, pissweak opposition and a platform of ‘[W]Apes Togevva Stronk!’

But the average Sandgroper (despite what Channel 7 and the West Australian tell them), likely did not agree to being locked down at the start of every long weekend and school holiday period from February to August (when the most virulemt amd contagious variant evaaaaaaah! successfully only infected the one dude that came into hotel quarantine, his partner and one solitary fellow sitting 20 metres away from them in a crowded restaurant), being perpetually denied access to the rest of the country (let alone the world) and finally threatened with job loss and exclusion from society if they did not comply with Sneakers’ demands everyone be vaccinated (in phases, mind. So people like me have already had to take the gene therapy under duress) by January 31st in order to maybe have the borders opened. And then accept the expectation of masks and social distancing in public forever when they finally do.*

And Sneakers has 3 more years unchallenged. He may well cop a landslide defeat come 2024-25, but virus or not, there is a lot of ruin that his government can inflict before then.

Most Sandgropers may not be happy, but what choice do they have in the matter? Sneakers has a de facto one party State, strongly captured media and public institutions and a highly compliant Union movement.

Small acts of individual civil disobedience and lackadaisical enforcement by sympathetic police and public servants is about all we have got.

* Because 1 and one-quarter terms in more or less unchallenged power has clearly not been enough to clean out the deadwood in the WA Public Health system, restore service delivery, quality and staff morale and stop the Ambulance Ramping.

Cats who dare to visit Sandgroperstan, please make sure your private insurance is up to date, and preference going into the St John of God hospitals if you can. While WA Health is staffed with a lot of truly wonderful frontline people who will go out of their way to care for you, their system will try to eject you as fast as it can. Whether you are recovered from your injury/illness or not.

“We also know that international travellers in particular are fascinated by Aboriginal culture and want to understand and experience it first-hand.”

For a couple of years during the eighties, I worked weekends at a tourist farm on the outskirts of Sydney. It had trail riding, which was my job, sheep shearing, dairy, working dog demos etc. You get the gist. One year, the owners decided to built an extra building and cover the walls with aboriginal art, didgeridoos, spears, even some live painted Abos. They owners had been told that this would bring in extra tourist dollars.

It died in the arse so fast. We used to get bus loads of laughing Japanese who only wanted to sit on a horse for the only time in their life, and take tons of photos. They all lined up to have their photos taken with the working dogs, loved the shearing and the milking demos, had absolutely NO INTEREST in the native stuff. Even the locals who would bring their kids for a picnic and a pony ride could not be bothered. What they couldn’t resell of the native stuff ended in the rubbish tip.

We would often have tourists from other western countries also. South Americans also. Not one was interested. The rest of the world is not interested in our natives. Perth Airport is onto a loser.
