The boss is a big problem, but the son in law, quite frankly, is the one who really scares me. If I was really drawing a long bow, you could interpret his musings as one with designs on some kind of hereditary dictatorship...... a la North Korea. How exactly did he get a role in the upper echelon of Government?
Damn straight. This saga has barely started and already people are starting to treat it like a joke. We had sunny ANZAC weekend a fortnight ago and we're seeing the curve tick upwards again. 99% of the community is clueless.... Lock down, what lock down?
Yep EB, you summed up beautifully Hodge as a "tough hombre but didn't miss an opportunity to take a player out". Lewis was similar, reminded me of a classic Essenscum player of the past, used to ruck rove.... O'Donnell? We used to call him "petrol"....started it, then evaporated quickly when the fire really started. Sly and weak as p1ss.
Another was Billy Brownless....great at jumping from behind. Pushes Christou into the fence on the half time siren in the '95 GF then packs his dacks when Rice comes to retaliate. Mi-ow.
Hodge was a vicious and nasty, and very calculated, thug. His attempt to dump Wingard into the post was a criminal act.
Funny how there's a whole raft of players admired for their so-called "hardness" who got away with a litany of dog acts..... Chapman, Baker and couple of tigers are some that spring to mind.
That's not tough, that's weak as p1ss in my mind. I hate him with a passion but blokes like Hird epitomised tough I reckon... Belted from pillar to post on field and still kept going. They're the kind of blokes you need.
The syndrome LP mentions has been noted in kids in the UK and is a very scary manifestation of the virus' effects.
I reckon states like NSW etc will be back in lock down with a fortnight given the stupidity already on display at the beaches etc. Dan might not be popular but he understands that easing lock down is pointless if unidentified cases are still at large.
The "bracket creep" deterioration of our rights concerns me with this government. Exactly when do things like this app get switched off/dialled back etc. It's national identity cards all over again, by stealth.
BTW, fancy China threatening boycotts.
I'm sure our community and the environment will greatly appreciate not having millions of tons of rubbish consumer goods and plastic being dumped on us, meanwhile they can chow down on Panda and Carp grown in sewerage farms, and babies can enjoy paint manufacturing waste being sold as milk powder.
