Here’s a thought

With school holidays coming up, parents must already have in place plans about what they are going to do with their children.

As it seems inevitable that things will get worse, why not go into lockdown for the two or three weeks of the holidays over Easter and Anzac Day which also equates to the required isolation period?

Surely that would slow the transmission rate?

Do it now when it can still make a difference.

    That sounds like a sensible idea, one our grandkids school is implementing. But, of course, you expect the political deadbeats to adopt such a scheme. Ho ho ho, though I suppose miracles happen, that endangered beast, the toilet roll, can still be found when a person knows where to look.

    great idea which is of course why our esteemed marketing manager will not embrace it

    I used to love school holidays when parents learned first hand just how obnoxious their off-spring could be, too often mimicing the attitudes and behaviours of their “loving parents”.

    A school holiday isolation period is an excellent idea and may, just may, mitigate the non-policies of the Smirkie Sacked from Marketing COALition misgovernment.

    As there are several public holidays, a lockdown then would mean most people would miss less days off work.

    Also, I heard that farmers have issues with harvesting fruit and vegetable crops. We could organise for the unemployed and casual workers laid off from hospitality and tourism who wanted to to lend a hand to get some income.

    So much could be done if we didn’t have to have endless meetings and press conferences and waiting to work out how much things will cost.


    We used to spend the holidays playing cards – all generations included. As my grandmother would say “there is no love in cards”. No-one ever LET a kid win – we had to learn how to beat them.

    I used school , uni holidays to make my own clothes, read a lot and do craft, painting. In my 8os that still sounds good.

    I am waiting for my darning skills to be required.

    Remember doing the sewing samples at school? We had to be able to embroider as well as do all sorts of different types of seams that I can’t remember the name of.

    One silver lining, emissions will go down a hell of a lot for a while. People might even realise that greed is not helpful when real crises hit.

    Wealth and privilege can’t save you. All of a sudden the powerful are realising how much they need teachers and nurses and cleaners. Stock markets aren’t helping them. Politicians aren’t helping them. The Murdoch spin isn’t helping them.

    This should be a wake up call about our values as a society.

    If anyone needs a break from cussing this useless bastard of a misgovernment,I’m your man.(Thanks, Leonard) I’ve got plenty left.
    Just been out on another fruitless dunny paper hunt,and I’ve concluded that the people behaving like animals now more than likely voted for this “f#ck you” pack of pretenders.

    Great plan. Shut what we can now to prevent massive disaster, death. They will be many more job losses then than now. We can look after those who are unemployed now, maybe not later

    This guy makes a lot of sense:

    Michael Taylor
    We’re all going to suffer in some way because of #COVID19Aus whether it be financially, socially, or – dare I say – health wise.

    We need to show the leadership that #ScottyFromMarketing refuses to. So despite what he says … stay home and don’t send your kids to school.

    Again NZ lead the pack, a “basic wage”, not the dole, is about to be legislated, and their PM has announced all victims of this current disaster will be supported. And here we are, australia bathing in natural resources/wealth, and we just squander it. Mining /gas and the like, all laughing all the way to the bank.

    @Kaye Lee: We have the same philosophy with chess; I am pleased to say that my two grandsons now regularly beat me on merit after years when I could get away with playing on memory. Next stop for them is the state titles.

    Genevieve Chene, who heads France’s public health agency, said between two and four weeks are needed for the outbreak to be adequately contained.

    “Within two to three weeks we should be able to observe a slightly different dynamic” to the outbreak’s momentum, she told Franceinfo radio, and “a significant braking” within two to four weeks.
