COVID’s genetic solution?

A lucky few are unusually resistant to COVID-19. Scientists are trying to find a reason in their genes.

Abbott’s Stop-the-Boats cure-all policy two months ago was the appointment of a three-star general to co-ordinate our response and tow them back.

Abbott’s new stop-the-boats policy is that now the Australian taxpayer is going to buy all of Indonesia’s leaky boats (to make such a policy work it will have to be every boat leaky or not they’ve got) and, with our money, I’m sure they could buy quite a lot of them.

Apparently our three-star general was none other than nice guy Tony, the Murdoch puppet.

The Indonesian government is licking its lips after Rudd snubbed them with the New Guinea solution. Nothing like a trillion Australian dollars.

Do we really want weak-kneed Abbott to be the purported head our country? He definitely won’t actually be running it.

A vote for Abbott is a vote for Murdoch and who wants either?
