    2020 Snow Season

    What about snow sports? Can I travel to get there?

    Snow sports can continue. Use of shared sporting equipment should be minimised and there should be no sharing of equipment that touches the face or head (e.g. helmets, goggles or masks). Travel is allowed only for permitted activities and includes day trips but no overnight stays. As always, Victorians are being asked to use common sense when it comes to travelling.


    Will be interesting, i see Falls and Hotham are already alluring to use of the COVIDSafe App.

    No Official word from resorts yet.

    I can imagine Day Trips only with social distancing at lifts


    At the same time

    Victoria has recorded 12 new cases of coronavirus.
    Five are linked to the Cedar Meats abattoir in Melbourne, four are in hotel quarantine and two were from community screening.
    The final case is still under investigation.

    China take aim at our Coal Exports now too....

    Maybe it is time we stopped selling our resources and food to them and our land.
    And start in-acting reposension of China owned Australian land

    Waste of time ~ they've been setting up for decades, we can't hurt them -- it would take a concerted effort wherein all nations agreed to take them to task...and then perhaps I think that's what they want.

    Yup, they were already sourcing Iron Ore from cheaper locations a few years ago i thought.

    You do it for the same reason they have, spite and you can.

    I agree 100%. Sometime I think that this Covid-19 in one way has saved us and it sad to say that because if their was no covid 19 years would have gone past China would have become stronger and stronger until the whole world would have see what is happening and it would be to late but know as China has showed their cards early what they are like only a fool country will trust them again. I say for all Countries GET out of China NOW refuse to deal with them. I dont give a F.ck why you guy think but I'm doing my small bit and try to buy anything away from China. Yes I know most of the time parts inside could be made in China but I will try to buy Australia first then any other country but not China.

    WARNING!!!!.Just noticed that the item that I got from China for a ebay seller months ago is now listed here in Sydney Regents Park Something smells here, Yes the same link that I have in my watch list in ebay was CHINA and now Regents Park.
    Anyhow I bought the same Made in Australia possible with China electronic parts.

    Sydney, Regents Park, Chullora, WA, NT, economy all owned and controlled by Chinese.
    I think Greedy Norman accelerated that with his 10% tariff as well.

    As I indicated before, we are stuffed without China and we are 40 years too late to do anything about that... lets say it could take another 40 years to attempt get out of it but we would be blown up long before that.
    Currently China is winning all war games and USA doing bad, well when have they ever done good since WW2?
    I don't trust the USA for one second to REALLY protect us if the simulations would turn to real, no matter which president.

    Yes saw the Hong Kong last night. Whats next Taiwan.
    The only way to stop this if the whole western world to gangs up against China and if this start WW3 so be it because when there is confusion there is profit so when the western worlds is busy getting rid of China the Russian will say Hummmmmmm lets see what we can get out of this or be involved and at the same time North Korea (USA is busy elsewhere) will attack South Korea than Japan will defend there land although at the same time Japan is with the western world and whist the WAR is raging Iran will attack the puppets of America in the gulf then Israel will be involved and this alone will make WW2 look like nothing.
    The World cannot leave China as it is because if nothing is done our children will be involved in the worst war that the Planet has seen. I say anything 10 to 30 years it will be on and the Greta Thunberg will say "HOW DARE YOU" TO HAVE THE PLANET BLOW UP and it will not the Climate that she is complaining about.

    There is one problem with your WW3 prediction: Australia.

    The Majors will not nuke each other but to send the USA a message China just has to drop a few nukes on our major cities.
    What do you think the USA will do about it?
    They are too self centred (aren't we all are?) to take any risks and nuke back. China knows that.
    I know I have said it a before that a proxy nuclear war could happen on Australian soil but I can't say it enough because I realistically see nothing that would stop China from attempting it, if WW3 against China breaks out.

    Even china spelt with lower case c that what I feel abut them china a issue with Sri Lanka for God sake Sri Lanka what other Country have they not has issue with. I would like to see the List of all the Countries that china has pissed off lately. Its about time that Australia get a back bone a under National Security remove the GREENS out of Parliament (hate the Greens as most do) get some Nuclear Subs forget the Diesal rubbish that the GREENS WANTED and buy some Nuclear weapons like Israel did.
    As For what the US will do if Australia is every attacked in any way nuks or not I expect 75% the US to come to our defense same as the rest of the Western World because it would be in there interest to do this otherwise the cHINA will grow some large balls and dictate to the rest of World.

    Garbage!

    The US has Military bases and interests here. No way in hell they are going to let the Chinks fk that up without responding. The US would well know about anything incoming here long before we did and have their birds in the air before they even touched down here.

    You would also have the rest of the commonwealth virtually obligated to defend us and while even combined they are not a super power, The chicoms can't take on everyone.
    We still also have substantial Jap interests here as well and they have never been exactly the Chinks best friend either so you could throw them in as well.

    Even without military action on anyone else's part, the first thing these other country's would do would be put an Import/ export ban on all things Chicom and that WOULD FK them and they know that too!

    Amazes me you don't recognise the subject of 80% of your Whingei...... Posts here, Trump, would be just itching for an excuse to retaliate and he WOULD have the support of the US people in taking out the Chicoms. Even if the democraps got in, the public pressure to retaliate would virtually force them into some action.

    You are talking about the most war hungry nation on earth here, The US. I think to suggest they aren't going to do anything is a grossly poor assessment of the situation along with a lot of other factors you don't take into account.

    One of you start a WWIII thread, then you can all indulge in your war game theory to your hearts content. Let's stick to items directly related to the virus here......

    And yeah, I've done it too....

    I wonder how much the Huawei ban is Australia (plus New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan, USA, ect) and now the UK has had to do with China stepping into our exports to them?

    The ironic thing, the biggest comms tower in my area was fully decked out with Huawei gear by Huawei themselves in July last year.
    The ban did not come into play until Dec 12th, 1999.

    Fat lot of good the ban did

    Interesting insight just now. Got a bunch of replies emails from Chinese sellers supposedly in Australia all on a sunday evening. Hard little workers, not.

    I messaged one on friday about some missing electronic components and asked if they had been sent or if it was delayed because of the China flu?

    The reply is a hoot at first glance but upon pondering is telling:

    First of all, this is not China Flu, please watch more TV and news, you will find that you are too narrow.
    Indicates to me that the Chicoms are being brainwashed by their media into believing something the rest of the worlds media has no question over.

    I'll try to think of some reply to hammer home that they are bing deceived and all the worlds media other than the Chinese Media ARE saying it's IS the china flu and who's fault do they think it is, the US? I'll tell them no, sorry you are being brainwashed but it DID come from China and there is no doubt of that.

    Maybe ebay messages are something the Chicom gubbermint doesen't sensor and is a channel the poor little commies can get the truth through... not that I think they will believe it.

    My dentist has been telling me for years the Muzzos were just uneducated violent morons but the Chinese were the real threat.
    If ever anyone was 500% right, it was him.

    Default Victorian Snow Season

    Wow, looks like the state will be back to normal

    The Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews, has given the state’s ski season a June 22 go ahead in a press conference this morning.

    From June 1, state residents are allowed up to 20 people gathered in their home. Outdoor gatherings have also increased to 20 and the good news for hotel operators is that overnight stays in accommodation are also approved.

    But there was even better news to come.

    FROM JUNE 22, THE STATE’S ALPINE SKI RESORTS WILL REOPEN TO SKIERS.
