No jab, no jive if you want to go to a festival, what the?

This is blackmail by the health department and regimes.

This country is turning into a police state. I thought I saw the last of that regime when Jo ruled Queensland.

No it’s SloMos turn and isn’t his regime doing a very good job of it folks?

Its bad enough having to wear a mask and being locked down, it’s a human rights violation to us all – if we still have those rights folks?

  1. the free vaccination isn’t mandatory, mask wearing and lock-downs isn’t a violation of human rights, just common sense, its a pandemic stupid, australia has never had a bill of rights, and its just a matter of time before ‘no jab, no pay’, is brought in for anyone receiving government services…

  2. The way delta spread in NSW with low vaccination rates – coincidentally plateauing as vaccination rates climb higher – there was little likelihood of festivals anyway (unless you want to see absolute chaos in hospitals).

    It seems a bit much that those eschewing the vaccine, want to muscle in on the opportunities for freedoms that vaccinations afford the community. Especially when while doing so they will make those attending less safe.
