It would be a shame to walk away from all this due to the ongoing COVID BS but I don’t rule it out in the medium term.

My get outs are back to the UK or make a run for Texas where they seem to be on a less George Orwellian trajectory.

F the Jab.

I agree. Although a lot don't see it that way but most of those same now are very disappointed that they have been lied to all along (hence the huge protests in Brisbane that you don't get to read about in the papers).

It won't stop with jabs of course, this is about implementing a digital ID and turning the western world into a model of China.

I saw my needle go in the bin. It didn't have my name on it nor my serial number. DNA collection was pretty slim in my view.

I would be more concerned about the government run PCR test. It has your DNA on it. Rapid Antigen testing all the way for me.

Can't say I enjoyed being at the mercy of NSW health when a member of our family had it.

The good news is, governments are too dis-organised and lack in enough clever overhead to be able to control the population through a jab.

No doubt corp are already selling this idea to the gov. No need for anything fancy, its just a tarted up QR scanning app on your phone,
that tells you what to do. The services start out with basic isolation and checking in functionality then gradually one by one "features" get added such as only being able to buy if you have been a good citizen, etc.
I mean, this is what they already have in China so we know its possible and could happen anywhere in the west.
I do wonder if your average Australian would object to this at all. Possibly not.

Its far more simple than that. No need for DNA. Just a phone app that tells you what to do.
The jab is just one step of gaining acceptance, it justifies the necessity. Sorting the compliant from the non compliant.
People used to think checking was going away, but I had my doubts. They will double down and extend the role of the QR app.

Your veggie patch sound mega! Nothing tastes as good as something you've grown yourself, plus you know it hasn't been grown with the 'help' of nasties. No room at my place for much, but we're looking forward to the tomatoes. I'm part of a community group and some members on bigger lots grow fruit and veg and offer the excess for free.

Don't mention flats in the UK! We saw 100,000 pounds of our retirement funds disappear into a 'off the plan' development that never eventuated. It wasn't an investment, it was going to be our home
That happened to us but In Queensland’s I could still cry when I think about it.

QR check in? Oh I remember those. Do you still have them in Queensland? Long gone here in Sydney.

If you ever look at the map time line in Android you can see they (Google) have been doing this for a long time with the need of QR codes.

I am curious how "normal" people in Australia view all of this.
I think for once the general public in the UK is actually more awakened to all the corruption, politics and power grabbing going on.

Perhaps you should enlighten us all with what you think is happening.
