You wouldnt doubt it would you.


More like a massive coverup by China

No new cases if you get shot if you look sick

Can only hope many importers hedged their USD positions, if a significant part of their product comes from China etc.


I'm getting smashed with the euro at the moment. Our core business unit is supplied out of italy. Euro was 53 cents yesterday, back to 54 today. Have a 120k bill to pay, just working out how long to hold off on paying it. Project was quoted 9 months ago and usually work off 60c so decent loss on this one element

My tin foil hat/grassy knoll 2 cents worth.

"IF" it can be proved, beyond ANY doubt at all, that the Chinese have developed a virus, and its been released either deliberately or accidentally and caused the harm it already has, let alone what the final tolls are.... the they can go suck a big fat one. And any sanctions, economic or otherwise will not be enough. Nuke the **** I say.

Bats, yeah that's all the pricks will be eating!

Trumpy called it a Chinese Virus, so the yanks in the war room must be thinking that way.

This thing may play out in all sorts of ways.

What if the chinks are sitting on a vaccine, and not sharing it with the rest of the world?

If you keep that language up, they're going to be even less willing to share it.

Bronwyn Bishop had a similar theory that was aired on Paul Murray's program on Sky, so feel free to join her in the helicopter of paranoia. ;)

Trump's still trying to pander to his base, who'd love any type of anti-Chinese sentiment, particularly after a day or so of being retrained and quasi-responsible, plus with Biden gaining increased media coverage by winning more delegates in the recent Democratic primaries.

NAPLAN testing scheduled for all schools nationally in late April/early May cancelled to focus on 'the wellbeing of students' and continuity of learning.

:roll:

'Safe' to go to school, but apparently not safe enough to sit a test. Mixed messaging at it finest.

Is this potentially indicating that schools themselves will be closed soon enough?

Please feel free to share your own opinion!

I did say if, and any doubt.

I am annoyed, sorry. And growingly suspicious. Happy for them to prove their innocence & be wrong. Maybe they just ****** up - if so fine. If not then they pay the price. Or do you think that the Chinese should just ride roughshot over the rest of us?

By the way, I don't think they read the forum, and won't be offended by my language. - ;)

Looking like pubs, cafes and bars will be shutting down with the governments new measures. 1 person per 4sqm in enclosed areas is the new restrictions

I don’t think schools will get shut down for sure, but I think it’s a possibility they’re keeping up their sleeve for if required.

Possibly, or the fact that attendance is dropping at a huge rate and it may not give them the data they want.
