  1. just try and imagine the cognitave dissonance required to still tell your local friendly pollster that you think that Scotty from marketing is preferred prime minister / you plan to vote LNP

    you’d basically borderline reusa at this point

    • Something along the lines of : Jen- Do you think the public believed you actually had that shot? Did it look real enough?
      Scomo- Of course, they swallow everything…

        The best part of that jab photo op was the little old dear he was having it with, inadvertently giving him the middle finger. Priceless.

    Current AZ vaccine INEFFECTIVE against B1351 South African strain.

    NEJM: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2102214?query=featured_home

    Short version here: https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2021/03/astrazeneca-vaccine-doesnt-prevent-b1351-covid-early-trial

    Given the other strains share similar mutations with the B1351 strain, but have not yet been studied with reference to the AZ vaccine, it is possible the AZ vaccine is ineffective against ALL new strains. In any case the AZ vaccine offers practically no protection against the B1351 strain.

    How good is Scumo!

    My Working Class, once life long Labor voting Father in law has be a partisan warrior for the LNP since Howard.
    I often get in trouble with my wife for winding him up! (But He always winds me up!,…I often retort)
    Ive never heard him say an unkind word about his team Capitan, ScoMo,…or any other in the LNP.
    But this AZ vaccine fiasco has got him a little rattled (he’s got emphysema).
    Of late ive noticed he’s not so quick to state that “Labor would have done no better” every time I make a criticism of the LNP or their current PM.
    When I said to him recently that its interesting the PM got the pfizer job and not the shyte AZ one he immediately said that the PM should have gotten the same one as everyone else.
    It was the first time I have ever heard him not agreeing with and not defending someone in, his team, the LNP.

    Doesn’t thrombosis Kill more old people than young people I asked him?
    Why are the Under 50s the only people being told NOT to get the jab?
    Isn’t thrombosis more dangerous in the old.
    I’ve noticed AZ is run by LNP donors and former Liberal Party officials I go on.
    I can see he’s feeling betrayed
    Just like the way Keating made him feel the same.

    • Sorry to hear about the emphysema, that sucks.

      Hopefully he realizes very few generations get so many free kicks as his. Tell him to be a good boy and take the vaccine his esteemed leaders tell him to take. If nothing else, do it for house prices.
