  1. NSW Prem coping a well earned shellacking in press conference ATM for not locking down hard and early AKA QLD.

    Some actual holding power to account type questioning going on, expect he won’t be invited back tomorrow.

  2. We should have a sweep on when the cross over between NSW and Vic daily cases will be.

    Next Tuesday.

  3. If you listen to the Gladys presser, they already know there are going to be higher case numbers tomorrow


      I’m sick of her giving forward guidance on this. Surely there’s an element of bet-rigging going on here to dishearten the MB Covid raffle.

      And the last Vic lockdown was SA’s fault!

      And the F’ers sit at home and do NOTHING in SA, but come here to Melbourne and visit dozens of places and see lots of people 🙁
