Our PM is a YO-YO
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been accused of “playing us for mugs” and telling “a bare-faced lie”, after he claimed previous comments that vaccine rollout was “not a race” were taken out of context. But Mr Morrison’s latest explanation of the controversial comments don’t hold up to scrutiny, with transcripts provided by his office proving he was specifically talking about the speed of the rollout. “He tried to mislead Australians,” claimed Labor’s shadow health minister Mark Butler.

Scott Morrison has recommended people in Sydney’s lockdown try to get their second dose of AstraZeneca after eight weeks – instead of the recommended 12 – in a bid to give people faster protection against the Delta strain. It has been hailed as a “great” reform by some, but one leading epidemiologist said he was “gobsmacked” at the change being announced in the middle of a press conference, warning constant “zig-zagging” on AstraZeneca could further damage public confidence in the safe and effective jab.

Death of a Salesman. If this doesn’t amplify the need to know why Morrison was sacked in NZ and Sacked by Aus Tourism what does? What are the reasons Australian people need to be kept in the dark? This seems to be the origin of the bullshit Morrison term “underwater matters” the cover-up for total incompetence.
Public relations has trumped public health as the Prime Minister targets the AstraZeneca vaccine as a scapegoat to shift blame from his own incompetence, writes Paul Begley.
