We continue the trials and tribulations of the NSW Cross Border Commissioner. This week, the commissioner investigates a mysterious multi-coloured bubble growing on the border with Queensland.
Commissioner: Mavis… that was Gladys on the phone and she wants to know about a bubble?
Secretary: You mean the border bubble Commissioner? Anastasia sent you a diagram of her bubble last week.
Commissioner: Oh, Anastasia’s pattern with the red, blue with large grey bits all over it. Has anyone deciphered it yet?
Secretary: I’ve had our team all over it Commissioner and simply put, if you live in the blue bit, you can go to the red bit, but not if you’ve been to the grey bit. However, if you live in the grey bit you can visit the blue bit, but not the red bit, and if you live in the red bit you can only go to this grey bit – but not that grey bit AND the blue bit – providing you don’t meet anyone from this grey bit over here.
Furthermore, if you live in this grey bit, and stray into that blue bit, you’ll be quarantined for 14 days at your own expense in the red bit.
Commissioner: Huh… if Gladys calls, tell her I’m out.
Secretary: Yes, Commissioner.
