    I can’t believe it’s not paid pandemic leave!

    I can’t believe it’s not paid pandemic leave!

    Scott Morrison introduces paid pandemic leave, except it doesn’t apply to anyone useful, already existed and achieves nothing.

    Also: Australia closes its state borders, masks become mandatory and Karl Stefanovic attempts the clunkiest coronavirus-related segue of all time (hint: it involves the Muppets!)

    Does Donald Trump want a civil war?

    Does Donald Trump want a civil war?

    Australia is in its first recession in almost 30 years and the governments solution is for boomers to renovate their kitchens.

    Meanwhile in America, the widespread protests against the killing of George Floyd have lead Donald Trump to push the country towards civil war, with his police literally hitting out at Australian news media in the process. Good thing we live in Australia, says Scott Morrison.
