My missus is a teacher or primary school deputy principal and I agree she has had fuck loads of time off in the last two years but I think now wants to go back but yeah I reckon they milked it. (She will never admit that) However from her point of view she says there were a lot of parents in the real hectic lockdowns that both worked from home or the mother didn’t work that would still send their kids to school (she was more than happy and did plenty of zoom schooling) as they wanted a break so they could sit at home and watch Netflix and maybe a cheeky wine. Well that’s what they smelt like when they picked them up. I’m not on any side I’m just saying what I’ve heard. This is when she couldn’t get vaxxed yet days and felt annoyed that other government departments are working from home. I get both sides but from experience never give a teacher shit about how many holidays they get not worth sleeping in the other room..
Agree with this
My wife worked at home full time during lockdowns aswell as schooling a 6 year old
Then a 2 year old charging around too
Pick work up from the school once a week only to see parents we know are on centrelink and neither parent works but sending kids to school
Made her soooo cranky

Perrottet killed 36 people in 24 hours. He just beat Martin Bryant's record for killings in a single day.


letting kids back to school on day one and not follow other states to push back return to school otherwise kids going get sick. This letting it rip needs stop and lockdown hard now
Hahaha no wonder people always on Twitter post so much crap here. The scary thing is people actually believe this rubbish. Anyone is free to hard lockdown themselves and stop telling everyone else what to do

Back on the 2nd of this month I wrote,
"Haven't had it and the wife and I are double vaxed and had our booster a couple of days ago, sore arm, and a bit seedy yesterday but otherwise all good. Neabor behind us is (was?) a very dogged anti-vaxer, got the bug about two weeks ago, and is still in hospital... (She's not in ICU, yet.)"

Just found out our anti-vax neighbor died last week in the ICU of covid, she was in her 50s...

‘very true , I myself have put myself into “lockdown” as I don’t think I would survive getting covid even with the booster shot.

i have only been doing essential shopping and those that i have caught up with it has only been in outdoor environments and it’s people that I’m comfortable knowing that they are not travelling through dozen venues

Great mate and I totally respect that.
If you’re at risk you take extra precautions. I think it’s too easy to blame everyone else these days, especially the government but at the end of the day it’s our health and we need to be taking the most responsibility for it. I hope you stay healthy

100%
Especially when the premier just followed on with the policy old sam toucan announced prior.
It’s always someone else’s fault

Daily deaths are somehow dismissed as they're old anyway, or they had comorbidoties so thems the breaks, as tho they aren't as valued or important?

What i find interesting is that Chant and Hazzard knew of the high death rate "expected in the coming days" from yesterday.....

So i have to ask.... why are the daily reports 1 day late when the health officer and minister already know the tallies?

They did the same when things were on the positive (better) side of the ledger....
