Fast Buck$, Coorabell
It was unpleasant to see Lapdog Lyon’s face on local TV the other night lashing out over the drongo who travelled to Byron and elsewhere while infected with COVID. It’s easy to dump on out-of-towners, but his nibs fails to notice wrongdoing right under his nose – or at least fails to say anything about it, lest his election prospects be damaged. Ambition is persuasive.
He might look closer to home in relation to COVID breaches too. I noted at the May Council meetings the physical distancing rules were ignored, especially by the anti-5G crowd, who evidently felt insecure about being too far away from fellow gang members. Then there was this mysterious chap who pointedly sat down right next to me. I’d never seen him before and assumed he was some street-person asserting his right to be entertained. Turns out he was Sarah Ndiaye’s partner. Don’t ask me why he sat there, of all the legitimate seats available, but I have my theories.
If Lyon is serious about the threat of COVID to local businesses and wants to pose as their champion, maybe he should get out among them and point out their continuing slackness in the process of customer registration; many don’t have pen and paper available for those who don’t have phone apps but still want to be traceable.
Also there are those bemusing creatures who wear a mask over their mouth but not the nose. They obviously haven’t noticed that most COVID testing is nasal, meaning presumably that the nose is where the bug concentrates. So I expect to see Cr Lyon out there cracking the whip instead of just posturing for the cameras.
