PQC: Speechless! Simply speechless! I am stunned NOT at such barbarism at its nadir of inhumane statist power, because I know the nature of the State and Government, but I am stunned and speechless at the stupid obedience of the majority people! Even if the Covid were real, how on earth Government and its thugs can forbidden the children to see their dying father, and from attending their father funeral? $200,000 fine? No one with the right mind would comply to pay! What the fuck “authority” is that? Who would obey such inhumane rule? Only sheeple and slaves will! Are we their slaves?

Didn’t the majority of people in Australia read for the last six months at all? The Pandemic is a H.O.A.X ! IT IS A HOAX! IT IS A SCAM! THIS IS A FRAUD! There is NO COVID19!

The stupid blind belief in government of the majority is itself an insanity! Have they not realized that it’s not about the virus, the pandemic… but the very politics of Government total power over the people.. with the very old trick “divide to rule!” This is a very crude trick to pit people against each other at every level through fear! And the majority of people have fallen for it!

I remember vividly when this Covid-Hoax started at Wuhan in China with a series of video clips of people being forced by Commie thugs to comply with new rules, the whole Western “democracies” and their people literally jumped for joy at China’s death rate! They pointed their finger at China and arrogantly laughed at Chinese people with contempt!

Look at the fucking Australia and the whole fucking West now! I did make a remark on this scenario months ago. I don’t want to repeat myself.

Yeah, I know there are plenty of useful idiots who still need “the roads” more than their freedoms and human dignity!

If we, the people, CANNOT dissolve such destructive inhumane system of government, this world is no long worth a place to live.

I’d rather die on my feet breathing fresh air than to live on my knees with muzzle on my face!

Tensions soar over Australia’s ‘heartbreaking’ Covid-19 border closures

SYDNEY (AFP) – A torrid row over Australia’s state border closures has pushed the country’s prime minister to tears, sparked bitter recriminations among rival regional leaders and even talk of secession.

Travel between the nation’s independent-minded states and territories has been mostly banned since Covid-19 hit Australia in March.

But an unhappy federal government is ratcheting pressure on premiers to open up, sending the argument into overdrive.

Campaigning media coverage has highlighted the plight of grieving families separated by the closures and targeted state officials they deem responsible.

One family facing a huge quarantine bill to see their dying father received over A$200,000 (S$199,230) in donations when their ordeal became public.

The family of Mark Keans, who has terminal cancer, had previously been told only one of his four children would be able to enter Queensland to see him.

The state currently blocks almost all arrivals from New South Wales – which it considers a Covid-19 hot spot.

“How do you choose which child gets that chance to see their dad for the last time?” Keans’ sister Tamara Langborne told national broadcaster ABC.

Such is the level of anger that Queensland’s chief medical officer has been forced to seek police protection after threats on her life.

COMMONWEALTH RIVALRY

Australia began life as six self-governing British states and territories that agreed to form a federation around 1900.

Rivalry between those regions had persisted – usually on the sports field and in lighthearted jokes – but coronavirus has made regional sentiment more pronounced, and more popular.

Many premiers advocating state lockdowns have seen their public approval ratings rocket.

West Australia’s centre-left premier Mark McGowan was cheered on as he pilloried the “Pinot grigio-sipping” commentariat in Sydney – near where he was born – for telling him to open up.

West Australia, he insisted, will remain “an island within an island.”

An approving local paper declared its own “Westralia Day” and #WAexit has trended on social media, a West Australian echo of Britain’s rancorous exit of the European Union.

Labour member of parliament Patrick Gorman, writing in The Australian on Friday, warned such talk cannot be dismissed lightly.

“The dangerous idea of secession has been reignited in Perth and across our state,” he said.

“Those on the east coast of Australia greatly underestimate the damage this might do to the federation.”

Conservative Prime Minister Scott Morrison has even expressed concern that “at times” over the past months “it has felt like Australia could break apart.”

Although he had long sought to appear above the fray, even as party attack dogs were set on those who support restrictions, he has now joined the fight.

In a recent radio interview, Morrison said he had personally pleaded with the centre-left Queensland premier to allow Sarah Caisip to attend her father’s funeral after travelling from Canberra.

“I’ve appealed to her to overrule the decision that would allow Sarah to go to the funeral,” he told 2GB tearfully.

“It’s not about borders, it’s not about federation, it’s not about politicians, it’s not about elections.”

Morrison’s critics say that is exactly what the row is about.

Many of the border rows are fought down political lines, with Morrison’s ruling conservative national government routinely targeting states with opposition Labour party leaders.

Queensland’s premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, happens to be in the thick of a hard-fought re-election campaign against Morrison’s conservative coalition candidate.

She has since responded, acknowledging “heartbreaking” cases, but insisting she will not be bullied or intimidated over policies designed to keep Queenslanders safe.

Western Australian Premier McGowan suggested Queensland’s leader was being singled out ahead of a state election in October.

“Tasmania and South Australia have borders – I don’t see them being attacked,” McGowan said of the Liberal-run states.

“I just urge everyone, at a national level, to pull back on partisan attacks,” he said.
