    Lock down , no worries mate

    Here in Melbourne we have five high rise tower blocks, mainly with those from non English speaking backgrounds, and a few others.
    Found out it is alive with the virus, of the 3,000 residents they haver found 53 at just one block. Still testing the others.
    So what do they do, bring in plod and lock them all inside for 5 days.
    Now these blocks are full of drug addicts , alcoholics and goodness knows what else.
    One guy attempted to escape but was caught and taken away!!!!

    So now we have 8 post codes in lock down for four weeks.

    Our less than honest Premier, dictator Dan said in the last election speech he would create new prison for Victoria, well he has done that with all the state prisoners as all other states have closed their borders to us.

    Pity he would not take FIFO with a one way FO.

    As our News has it John there are nine Towers ,with the 3000 Locked In.
    Also see now that the Border between Vic and NSW will be closed from Tonight.
    Your cases have risen dramatically in the last day to the highest since the start of all this at 127 in a day with two deaths.
    I only hope that this can be curbed as soon as possible otherwise this is not going to be good at all.
    You keep safe and stay Alert !

    Yes Vernon, 9 not 5.
    We are so P15ssed off with our so called premier we tend to get a bit over heated about this.
    But he is a prize ****wit with bells on.

    When asked why he was not using the ADF forces medical persons to assist with the lock down, most suited to do it, he replied, 'the police did not ask for them'
    You are the premier DH, show some common and allow the health people to deal with it not the bloody useless polis

    Our Premier called in the army when we had the Burnie outbreak and that whole episode was handled swiftly and well. 7 weeks here no cases. Can't stay hiding for much longer, but it's worrying re Victoria. At least we have Bass strait so unless you are a long distance swimmer hardly likely to be able to make a run for the border here.
    Laughable when they say we can open borders with other states, mostly to get to those other places we have to transit through Melbourne.
    We have our boys and their families in Melbourne so we are watching events closely.

    Victoria you are safe.
    Our state dictator has just announced that for the next six weeks all metro Melbourne will be locked down along with one shire.
    This will kill many businesses and many will never recover.

    All this because some 0.0006% of the global population have passed with the virus.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
