    I'm sure there a plenty of people she wishes would go away too.
    And she did well with them, of that there's no doubt.

    Her problems started when she bought a ticket to ride the "Attack Australia" express.

    Came into Sydney Harbour, where many decades before, enemy subs sprayed torpedoes around...and stood at the microphone and sprayed nasty words around, attacked Australia, attacked our Prime Minister, in public, in front of the nation, in front of the world. Our Prime Minister, a white, heterosexual, male [and openly Christian].

    Imagine for one minute if he'd gone to NZ and done exactly the same thing to her!

    She's also been touring the Pacific and attacking Australia about climate change.

    White heterosexual males, the only group left people can attack 24/7 in any way they like, and do, with impunity. Worse if the white males are Christian.

    I don't get the Ardern bashing apart from she is not from a right-wing party and she is female which is just a form I follow my right wing parties around the world like my footy team. Female leaders tend to get attacked more as well in this regard.
    I'm sure that's not true Pride and don't put yourself down. People who attack others are usually unhappy with their own lives and their own lack of achievement so it makes them feel big to put others down from behind a keyboard. As a woman myself I just find it quite disturbing and a little bit scary when I see and hear so much vitrole directed towards women like Jacinda and Greta for having opinions. Comments like telling them to go away, shut up, get back to the kitchen, slap her with a brick (really??) don't belong in today's society. I hate the term political correctness also as it means nothing. It's more about being enlightened and evolved and moving with the times. Not living the the dark ages but being a useful and productive member of society.

    Well said. Regardless of her gender, looks or political persuasions, she has shown herself to be a fine leader in difficult times. I applaud her.

    Thought you wanted political talk moved to the "Off Topic" area? Maybe you should have said you wanted anyones views that you don't agree with moved to that area?

    Australia has been sucking on China's teat for decades now and has been getting nice & fat doing so. Don't believe it? Check out the trade figures between the Australia and China....and tell me who is the winner out of it.

    So any hardcore talk towards China is just hot air. Whats out government going to do.....say we are going to put a limit on what you buy from us? Tell them you cant buy our coal anymore or anything from our farmers? Yeah right. Maybe say we are not going to import from you? Well you run the risk of them saying straight back at ya- then we need to find a country to fill the 50 billion annual surplus shortfall we will be giving up-good luck with that.

    Heres the facts- Europe is ready to do business with China....as is all of Asia....as is Africa. What have we got left? Trump who sent out tweets in Jan Feb and early March praising China and The Who and is now blaming China because he fell asleep at the wheel?

    Then we got the Australian Government..... Shit for Brains Dutton calling for transparency from China & cited US State Department intelligence about how the virus had spread, but said he had NOT SEEN the documents.

    Don't get me wrong-there needs to be a international led investigation into how it started, how it spread, China' & The WHO response...once the world sufficiently recovers.

    Life goes on. In Phase 3 on that pamphlet ScoMo was waiving around today "consider International Students travel". Yep no prizes on guessing who these international students are and where they are coming from!! Did anyone really expect the PM to say " no Chinese students allowed in Australian"???
    Crikey...you got a tail on me. I'm sure this was before BBs discrete off topic thread was created.

    Regardless a couple of sentences like that relate to the topic I would say. Its the long rambling Aussie bashing that hurts peoples eyes that we were trying to quarantine. Bit like your 6 para effort here.

    I thought he was going to be ever bit as good as his uncle John.....couldn't be further from the truth. John wasnt a noted great defender but he wasnt a turnstile like Bryce

    Implying that China didn't necessarily own this virus and it's transmission....and also smuggling in a Chinese diplomat to a press conference without the Ministers knowledge was pretty low...sources have also suggested.

    I said I would post a link, and post several lines of what I consider to be relative and important text. [Some people don't like clicking on links].
    Which I did.
    I posted a link, 3 lines of text.

    2 lines of text at the top to demonstrate that a young man was in an emergency room being treated for the flu.

    3 lines of text at the bottom from the internet to show flu deaths.

    I could type it out like it is my words, but that's not really fair.
    I put it in italics to show that it is not my words.

    What is your exact problem with my posting a link and a few lines of what I consider relative text?

    He’s probably a vegetarian too. One that eats meat. Wanker!

    Forget about agreements.

    Gladys, that nice Mr Dutton [Home Affairs Minister], Qld top health official etc said today..."NO JAB, NO PLAY, NRL must obey all guarantees it made to the govt to get the comp restarted. Or there will be no NRL playing".
    Meaning, "no correspondence will be entered into." "That's it, take it or leave it".
