Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Coles is supposedly recruiting 5000 new staff. If they don't have too many people off work for coronavirus illness or isolation, they will soon have some extra staff available to fill some of those gaps. and They'd be hiring more also in anticipation of many staff being sick and going into quaranti...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Coles & Woolies are struggling to supply their stores. It's not just the stores struggling now, but the distribution centres. There's literally no point in doing this, because within an hour of stores opening, the essential supplies that everyone is trying to hunt down are gone. They do not get aro...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Rev , you've got valid points there. I personally would prefer to shop away from others if I could go at any time after midnight until 6am (usual supermarket opening time) whether there is stock or not. Of course there will be stock not availaible even at that time such as bakery products unless yo...

Re: Beer Garden

The army can setup temporary accommodation very quickly for disasters, they have the capacity and the resources to get it done. Why not use stadiums? Oh wait, that would require the government to actually LEAD and cancel all sporting events first. How many ovals or horse racing tracks are out there...

Re: Beer Garden

Personally I think our government is even worse then pretending nothing bad is going to happen. They're only doing what they are doing because of public pressure. That's your personal opinion. The government itself is only repeating what they have been advised by the Chief Medical Officer, the Depu...

Re: Beer Garden

No the tourism will not take a long time to recover. If we manage this virus with the isolation it deserves we'll be back to normal soon by end of year. The Chinese although secretive early on, and perhaps slow in a reaction, with the help of their political system have enforced a lockdown that now...

Re: Beer Garden

I guess the alternate view is that "once it's all over", there will be a release of pent-up demand for holidays to catch up on the ones that people have missed. Hopefully the isolation is not too long as it has been proven people caged up change psychologically. They become afraid to go out. I thin...

Re: Beer Garden

Just to bring it home to our interest in developments here, I guess we can forget about any of the proposed hotels starting this year or even next? The tourism industry will take a long time to bounce back (especially as the worst is yet to come). Coupled with looming recession (from COVID-19, bush...

Ah yes, unconscious racism by rev. What he really means is that he thinks that all Chinese are carriers of the Virus.
All you need is one to be a carrier. How about an asymptomatic?
