Ultimately if this is going to be long term there will have to be a moratorium on mortgages, especially on rental properties, despite my being ideologically opposed to investment in property. Tens, possibly hundreds, of thousands of newly out of work renters are going to default on their rental agreements, yeah the landlord can evict them, but who will go in there to replace the previous people. You’ll be pushing families out onto the street and the landlords will have no one to fill the vacancies will by my reckoning will create a housing fire sale which will won’t benefit anyone except for the renters who have still managed to keep their jobs and do have savings which now put them in a position to purchase a home (which is a good outcome for them, but does not help those who rent and do not have the means to buy a home.)

yep back on topic

it may or may not be true

but i saw on the news today that some alcoholic based hand sanitizers may not be that effecitive against COVID19

Depends if they are talking about the actual factory made stuff, or if people are knocking up their homemade metho or isopropyl alcohol based sanitisers.

Anyway, back on topic, another sub-300 day yesterday for new cases.

@Tiger5150 where are you getting your data from mate, as you seem to have yours quicker than worldometer references it (I think because they refresh at 0:00 GMT+0.)

It is a disgrace what some multinationals are pulling …

The one I work for has worked out if they fully apply the 1.5 m rule they can save money in labour , yet they don’t have issues with employees still handling cash and don’t think gloves or masks are required or eftpos machines don’t have the disposable covers /sheaths

Got to love how some Coronavirus rules are important …others meh …just keep trading

Maccas now selling burger buns / English muffins and 2 litre milk through the drive through …anything to make a buck .
Friggin parasites !

I’m genuinely interested why you think this makes them parasites?

We’ll how about they donate $1 for every quarter pounder sold for Covid research or something like that instead of profiteering during a pandemic.

And I very much doubt they’re trying to offload excess stock .

They’re keeping people in jobs, youth especially.

I think that’s enough for the time being.

So is every other small retailer …maccas are profiteering parasites and that’s my opinion…

And you’re entitled to it.

Just a funny outlook when supermarkets are raking in off the back of hoarding to the point where they are delaying refurbishments etc so they aren’t closing down parts of their stores to make more money again.

Went to a KFC last week, they take walk ins, but you cannot dine in. Everyone in the restaurant observing social distancing rules, except for the bloody Menulog & Uber eats drivers. There must have been four or five of them crowded in a 1.5m² space near the counter.

A customer blew up deluxe at them and they looked at him like he had two heads.

I’m sick of this mentality. If players want to leave - go!! They are overpaid as it is. Cut the crap out of salaries and get the blokes there for the right reason.
Also
Their petulance over current pay cuts does nothing to build their profile in the community.

I can’t understand how some players are complaining about pay cuts, many already on handsome salaries, when most clubs have shown their non-player staff the door with immediate effect.

Thaaaaaaank you. Here’s BJ whinging about getting $200K instead of $500K or whatever he’s getting, meanwhile the Cougar, Barb, coaching staff, physios and front end all go home without pay.

I honestly wouldn’t touch any sort of take away or home delivery with a 1.5m pole…

Yes there are risks in going to the supermaket to get the essentials but at least you control your own destiny…

Well no you don’t. The box of cereal/jar of vegemite/pack of snags etc you pick up could have had someone else fondling it. You have to hope you disinfect your basket/trolley well enough to not contract anything, you have you hope the person you are walking past in the aisle hasn’t just sneezed/coughed further up the aisle for you to breathe in their aerosolised fluids as supermarkets are not covered by social distancing rules even though they try to apply them where possible. You have to hope the conveyor belts are washed down, the staff are regularly washing their hands. So many more variables rather than talking into a speaker box and having someone who is wearing gloves hand you your goods.

Mate
I would like to know who goes to the supermarket to fondle sausages (snags) while wearing a glove
Apart from those in Gladstone

Mate you’ve gone to big lengths to stretch a joke out of that haha…

I don’t begrudge Joey’s sentiment over the pay cuts at NRL HQ. They are absolutely valid points to make. The “we are the players, we make the game” sentiment is well worn on me though. The players are nothing without the fans. If we aren’t watching you either in the stands or on Fox/Nine, you have nothing.

Be grateful you’re taking your paycuts on anywhere between what $125K a year up to a million. There’s people who were earning $40K and less a year full time only to have nothing now. Talk about a total lack of vision for the big picture.
