In the same week:
Queen’sland Premier departs for the Tokyo Olympics after jumping the queue for a vaccine.
The residents of the Sydney suburb of Fairfield are under house arrest.
There’s something for everyone, heh?
If you think putting a bit of lippy on and acting out an autogynephiliac fantasy is stunning and brave, Caitlyn neé Bruce is here for you.
If you like confrontational shock jock politics, Katie is at hand.
If you believe for an Olympic bid to be successful, an authoritarian Premier with more chins than the Hong Kong phone book needs to visit Tokyo rather than use Skype, Anna is going bring gold home for you.
And if you didn’t even know where Fairfield was until last week, but you assumed it was out west and filled with smelly immigrants, the Westies will take one for the team and you.
At what point do people just say, “nah, fuck this”?
I think the answer to my question above is, not for a long while yet. It’s obvious we can all take a hell of a lot more hypocrisy, removal of freedom and hectoring by our ruling class and media before we decide we’ve had enough.
It’s an interesting social experiment though. I wonder when the result will be published?
