Wait goes on for stranded Victorians as tennis players touch down

Premier says he has hope but not timetable for travellers trapped in 'red zones' to return home as city prepares for the arrival of 1200 tennis players and support staff.

Sports people are being allowed to move around the world because they provide entertainment for those trapped in isolation. Pretty obvious.
The song from Abba fits this one perfectly......Money Money Money its a rich mans world!!!!!

Twitter was right to ban Donald Trump

Opinion: Twitter was right to ban Donald Trump

That took you 8 days. There’s jumping on the bandwagon, and then there’s seeing it slowly approach over 4 years, watching it cruise by, it stopping right beside you, you just looking at it, and it leaving at a snail’s pace before you decide to get on board. ThisIsNotJournalism
Remember social media platforms taking credit for the Arab springs and color revolutions! It’s all ok if it’s not the USA! The double standards are breathtaking.

Census to provide gender non-binary option to better measure diversity

A new standard for sex, gender and sexual orientation released by the ABS has been introduced to tackle a data gap on gender and sex diversity.

There is sex diversity now? That's incredibly rare, in reality. Sex precedes humans by a gazillion years. Is sex also human construct to be torn down? Let's ignore science and nature in favor of feelings? Good luck breeding without male and female components.
What about the other 300 genders?
