Well I had a lovely day yesterday but seeing us push towards the magical 1000 per day caseload has put a dampener on things .

thank goddess for the curfew, has made a world of difference . Ironically I think the Northern suburbs will be best positioned to enjoy 2022 as it seems everyone will have had it. I’m glad deaths and hospitalisation haven’t gone through the roof . That is a great sign .

But it looks like we’ll run over the top of NsW shortly and more fool them with their not so strict rules . That will learn them all .
And let’s see if we can get a “ super spreader “ off the ground the Gov has been desperate for one of those .

All as he had to do was lockdown a couple of areas and couldn’t deliver when it mattered.

I have an awful feeling we’re along way off living a semi normal life . Hope I’m wrong

Well said TT and best wishes to your mum. It is a global pandemic and we are all impacted.

While I got to attend mum’s funeral last year, I didn’t get to Melbourne in time to say goodbye. Dad has months to live & I have no idea if I will see him again. All the family in Melbourne are not able to visit.

An overwhelmed hospital system will have devastating consequences for us all.

So as I sit here in Brisbane, acknowledging our relatively good fortune up until this point, my heart aches for the horror inflicted by this global pandemic.
That’s heartbreaking mate. So sorry to be reading that. All the very best to your dad and your family.

I get the sentiment Grogg but history has shown that shutting the one dedicated thread to the overwhelming topic of the day just leads to the chat leaking into multiple other threads.

I asked that people of both sides consider they’re talking among their fellow North flock before using ill considered language and terms.

We’re all sick of this crap and a bit of empathy can go a long way.

Hell, I’m in the most vulnerable 1a classed group myself and I’ve found out only this week that my mum has breast cancer, so I have a major stake in this game.

I generally choose to avoid posting in this thread as nothing positive can come from going postal over views I vehemently disagree with.

If people could just try to be more compassionate before posting I’m sure the discourse will be more palatable for all who are reading.

We’re all Northerners FFS.

When’s the first praccy match?
All the best with your mum. FWIW my mum has had multiple bouts of breast cancer (over a long period of time) and each one has worked out (last time was 2009) and things have improved since then as well.

So are most people here going to grand final get togethers or following the rules and staying home?
Following the rules. Otherwise I wouldn’t feel comfortable criticising the government at all. I’m doing my bit and can hold my head high knowing that I’ve done everything my country needed me to do. I’ve grown to despise people that break the rules and also criticise the government. I view those people as weak. I have more respect for crooks who’ll break the law but admit they’re crooks.

Integrity, I like it.

Pretty much exactly how I feel.

Definitely staying in.
