Tongue in cheek on a serious topic.

The SA government went into overdrive to make sure they did not have the same balz up we had here in Victoria and I salute them.

But what really impressed me was how South Australians emptied all the bottle shops in around 12 hours.

Forget the rush to the supermarket to stock up on paper to wipe your backside, South Australians know their priorities.;)

The threat of 6 whole days without access to the amber raised the red flags. The rest of Australia salutes you.

Also shows despite what we have been told all along the state governments are going for total elimination strategy rather than suppression.

Genuinely impressed by Croweaters too in the way they responded to it, no yank style "stop taking our liberty away" protests or calling their premier a dictator. From all interviews I've seen everyone knows its a bitter pill to swallow, but its best for themselves and everyone in their community to just front up and get it over with.

They still went berserk for the sh*t tickets. I guess they figured if your guna hit the piss all week you better make sure you also wipe your freckle 736 times a day

In fairness, their premier told them straight up what the plan was. There was no bullcrap to sift through, and they knew when it'll would be over

Yeah, but then their Premier didn’t completely f..k up Hotel Quarantine, resulting directly in the deaths of an additional 800 people, loss of many thousands of jobs and businesses, not to speak of the mental health toll and additional suicides. Then lied through his teeth to the toothless inquiry he set up, all designed to absolve himself of any responsibility.

So perhaps South Australians justifiably have a bit more respect for their premier, than many of us have for ours in Victoria.

Anecdotally there has been an increase. Not sure to what extent, as they don’t publicise it for various reasons.

Wouldn't have been reported that way by Murdoch if he wasn't Liberal though. So all the deadshits that watch Sky News, listen to garbage talk back radio and read the Herald-Sun would have fallen for the same hysteria that they did in Victoria.

Didn't he shutdown an entire state for 3 or 4 days for no reason whatsoever? Simply because he didn't follow up a response from a pizza shop worker?

That's surely incompetence of the highest level, isn't it.

well considering the virus got out of the hotel quarantine, i dont see how you can say they didnt fu** it up just the same. theyre just lucky that the person who leaked it didnt have an enormous family party (like the person here did), being a less dense city it didnt spread as fast, and they likely caught it a couple days earlier.

if anything, SA's quarantine was more incompetent given they had the ability to learn from vics mistakes and still let it out. not testing the workers at the hotel is juts as incompetent as anything the vic quarantine did.
