During the lockdowns there was more monetary support. Now there’s none I don’t have an income at all and as such have no discretionary spending

Probably should have thought of that when they were all demanding an end to lockdowns a few months ago. I’m sure they’ll claim that someone else should have done the thinking for them.

The medical experts have all ‘very clearly spelled out’ this was _entirely predictable_ but we have a Federal Govt that tries to put the economy above Health and has been aggressively pushing a ___let it rip___ paradigm and now most of Australia is in a far worse state than we ever were with controlled lockdowns.
