Western Sydney Uni turns people smuggler to skirt virus ban

So universities are now people smugglers. Via The Australian:

Western Sydney University is offering $1,500 payments to Chinese students to help fund travel packages to third-country transit destinations to get around the federal government’s coronavirus ban.

International students at Western Sydney University have been informed that the institution will “pay each student arriving in Australia through a third county $1500 AUD to help cover the cost of airfares and 14 days’ accommodation”.

“We consider the Australian Government’s endorsement of entering Australia through a third country an important development, opening up the opportunity to arrive in time to commence study in Australia,” said the Western Sydney University in an email sent on Wednesday, noting the payment would be made after arrival in Australia.

But wait, there’s more:

Qantas could dispatch a raft of special flights to help retrieve tens of thousands of stranded Chinese students as soon as the coronavirus travel ban is lifted under a drastic plan being considered by the university sector.

The federal government extended the China travel ban for another week on Thursday, further narrowing the window for 100,000 students to begin their first semester studies in Australia.

Universities and the government are moving to make sure flights can quickly start operating again should the ban be lifted in time for students to practicably join in the first semester. The backlog would test the capacity of airlines and government immigration and quarantine processes.

700m Chinese are still locked down at home to kill the virus but we’re going to rush them in by any and all means possible?

The virus of greed has fatally sickened our bastions of enlightenment.

        We had instructions on how to take a sh!t at work – SIT on the toilet seat as opposed to perching on the edge of the seat like a baboon while last nights curry sprays the dunny seats lid….. for some reason all those signs disappeared from the back of the toilet doors about 6mths ago and the arse spray returned.

        Still fecal contamination is a small price to pay for the cultural enrichment we are enjoying….
        😐

    China puts itself on a wartime footing
    Straya puts itself on on a more than usual whoretime
    footing …….Sweet justice indeed if those driving this scheme gets the virus and end up in the mortality figures

    Hard to believe the country has sunk so low

  2. And there’s the Qantas we know and love. I’m glad the Corona virus can be cured by doing a bit of duty free on a layover.

  3. I’m at a complete loss for words. The complete level of shtwhre mongery of these aswpes is beyond belief.!!!!

  4. Can the treasonous VCs sink any lower? I hesitate to offer absurder suggestions, as they may steal the ideas and implement them too. Ok maybe just one idea. The VCs could demonstrate how safe this virus is and how unracist they are by travelling to Wuhan and staying for 14 days. That would impress me no end.

  5. Geez u would hope all the vcs especially the one at prestigious Westie syd uni is ok and doesn’t get this nasty virus would hate if they get a bit crook so I pray that they are ok. Fingers crossed and sending our love and best wishes to them

  6. Western Sydney Uni = “our bastions of enlightnement” (sic) ?
    Shirley, you cannot be serious?
    Then again, seeing that cannot even spell enlightenment correctly…

    It’s obvious now people, if you get this bug it’s your duty to infect as many of these arsehats as you can before you collapse and die. Wander around a campus and cough on any older type looking smug and haughty. Actually, cough on all the haughty everywhere, especially the tweed wearing ones.

    There’s no other appropriate response to this sh!tf#ckery.

    It is good to see that our universities are doing everything they can to protect the profits of their business.

    Oh, and western Sydney Uni, isn’t that where that super loser Steve Keen taught his fake sh1t? LOLOLOL. Says it all really.

      hahaha yep, don’t worry we hounded him off to England where they weirdly still accept academics who don’t tow the mainstream line.

  9. I hope they do this and we get a virus outbreak in Sydney and Melbourne that completely shuts down those cities for a month or so.

    This is the only way things change in Australia. The place has to literally be on fire and with people dropping dead from viruses before people will wake the f up.

      Time to put a ban on eating the rich. A bad diet could kill you.

      Let them rot in the gutter.

    • I agree. I’m hoping for chaos (that escapes my loved ones).

      It’s the only way to wake this stupid country to what politicians and other elites are doing to us.

    • I support the call to replace every victim that perishes with two warm bodies from the great global reserve.

    • If Sydney and Melbourne get shut down how good would that be! All those people who want to escape their overpriced property markets to QLD and the NSW coast will have to stay and this will push property prices even higher.

  10. The desperation of not just the ‘university’ sector but also the legion of parasites that feed off the international students is making me happy…

    • Same it shows that immigration is just a cash cow and all the virtuous nonsense is to shoot down opposition to it via the “you’re a racist” type shout downs.

      It’s never been about what’s good for this country, much the same as foreign buying doesn’t impact prices, until the foreigners stop coming and property sales slow for some unknown reason.

        Wait until the virus starts affecting the debt. Then all hell will break loose. The debt must be maintained at all costs.

    Exactly what do they mean by this statement…
    “We consider the Australian Government’s endorsement of entering Australia through a third country an important development, .

    Sounds to me like the gov is playing both sides. Close the borders for political reasons but then don’t enforce loopholes. The uni looks like they flubbed it by explicitly stating it.

  12. Sounds like a future class action from corona victims will sensibly include University of western Sydney for willfully aiding the spread of the virus in full knowledge of the likely ensuing harm.

  13. If you thought the cruise ship was an effective virus incubator, just wait until you see what happens in the University Halls of Residence.

  14. If the Soviet Union had been giving Australia a bunch of money you would see Australian’s defending the Soviets totalitarian system as a “way of getting things done”.

    Incidentally, the “miracle 10 day hospitals” that they built don’t seem to be up to standard. Who would have guessed? Not all the stupid totalitarian dictatorship apologists running around our mainstream media and universities, that’s for sure.

    It seems that this virus targets mainly Chinese (or Asians in general), with very few (if any) Caucasian victims reported so far. If that’s the case, then aren’t we getting a little too hysterical about the spread of this virus amongst the local population?

    It was always going to come to this.
    Government imposes ban.
    Vested interests circumvent it to maintain profits.

    Capitalism!

      There’s a lot of people there who need infecting with the Wuhan Flu. Gonna need more virus.
