  1. At least Trump can tell his mother from his daughter.
  2. The aim at the start was to 'flatten the curve'. Then Australia did such a good job public opinion changed to eradicate. Unless we keep our borders closed for years eradication is a futile goal.
  3. Flat bottom girls they make the woking world go round.
  4. The suburban economy will return to normal once pubs, casinos and pokies open. Tourism will remain in trouble. It's a real intersection between border regulations and the survival of big tourism in Australia. https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/business/the-economy/bean-counters-believe-nation-can-dodge-depression-but-no-sharp-rebound-20200529-p54xq6.html#comments
  5. In Brisbane I would have long ago. Not sure what the current rules are though. The restaurants and pubs here are packed to the now permitted 10 people.
  6. The poor are out spending their stimulus job keeper and seeker payments, et al. A lot of working poor and welfare recipients have had a large jump in income. I had to go to a large shopping Centre in a low so area at 3.30pm yesterday and 9am today. It was like xmas yesterday and at 9 this morning it looked like a busy saturday.
  7. Free granny flat anyone?
  8. Watch the video in the link. Trump is just entertaining.
  9. Everyone has their handout for a hand out ATM. I'm going to give a swift kick in the Kant to the next company I see panhandling.

  11. I don't have a doubt that USA people would believe that. Stupid and insular.
  12. For the small investor what else is there?
  13. The banking crisis has begun. NAB raising capital. ANZ suspending (nicer term than not paying) dividends.
  14. Don't really know, but it will be local. City by city and burb by burb. I suspect that areas with lots of students and share houses will have less demand as tenants typically have jobs that have been very affected (eg bars). These tenants also have a greater ability to move back to the parents or bunch up than families. Tenancy laws are a state matter. Morrison would like to think he is king but it's up to the states. Check out your state rules. Queensland has passed it's laws, which don't seem dramatically different to current laws. Commentary I read said that LLs would be issuing eviction notices, even if they had no intent of evicting so they could claim lost rent on their LLs insurance policies. Congrats on the new job.
