Brickbat: The Long and Winding Road

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the country will open its borders again and end lockdowns when 80 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Currently, just 14 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated against the disease, one of the lowest vaccination rates among developed nations. The Australian government closed its borders to people who are not citizens or permanent residents of the country in March 2020 to prevent the spread of the disease.

  2. If they had not taken citizens’ firearms, then invited low skilled migrants into the country to steal from their homes and rape their women, Australians might be a bit less mistrustful of their government’s health directives.

    1. “…then invited low skilled migrants into the country to steal from their homes and rape their women…”

      Are you talking about how the black-skinned natives aborigines made a serious mistake, way back when? I suspect that you are correct! It was even worse in Tasmania, where the whites killed EVERY LAST ONE of the native males! (And then “took” the women.)

    2. Actually, ‘srylya has rather strict skill requirements for who they will admit as immigrants. While the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Australia_policyWhite Australia policy might be scorned as a thing of the past, today while Oz does not exclude asians and africans, they pretty much will only allow members of the lesser races who act like white people.

      Immigrant applicants are carefully matched for their education and skill sets against against a list of job openings and locations prepared by “top people” in the government.

      And, none of your silly “birthright citizens” nonsense, either. If you’re not a citizen or a legally admitted immigrant eligible for citizenship, you’ll be sent back home with your parents and never allowed back in. I swear, it’s a Trumpster’s wet dream.

          1. OK, took me three tries but I finally got the html link to work.

            1. They’ve been taking Indo/poly/muslimneasia migrants by the thousands in recent years. Open the newspaper.

              A good homogeneous country ruined by multicultural diversity initiatives.

  4. Down Under MAGA is probably good with half that ultimatum.

    1. They should build a wall.

      1. They’ve got three oceans.

        1. Yeah, but we don’t get any immigrants from the Southern Ocean and we don’t get many from the Pacific side either.

  8. That 80% number will eventually be bumped up to 110%.

  11. > Currently, just 14 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated against the disease, one of the lowest vaccination rates among developed nations.

    That’s mostly because Australia is a hotbed for the anti-vaxxer movement. The nutter movement is strong there that they had problems with pertussis, a childhood disease that is all but extinct in Western world. Hell, they’ve even seen cases of… polio!

    1. Sounds like a good call – From Wiki –

      In 2019, there were 175 cases of wild polio and 364 cases of vaccine-derived polio.

      1. Which was why we stopped universal vaccination of polio. Due to the previous success, the rare vaccination side-effect was becoming more common than the disease in the wild.

      2. Vaccine-derived polio is pretty much why we have an anti-vax movement.

        That and there is no vaccine for stupidity.
