    Hi Pete.

    Well I have been here for a little while. I’ve lived in all 3 eastern states, so I’m really just a ring in

    A real question here guys…. with an annual tourism turnover of in excess of $22B per annum, how are you guys travelling? Hopefully things are OK. I noted this arvo that Anastasia, or more to the point her CMO has indicated that the Qld border to NSW will be opened up when NSW can show that they have had 28 clear days of no unknown Covid 19 transmission. Seems we won’t be seeing sunny Qld any time soon. Bit difficult for us when we are the primary placement for OS repatriation and even Qld have not been able to achieve that milestone as yet. Gonna be a looooong haul.

    It sure is an interesting one, Commish.
    One hand, she has done a very commendable job in ensuring that our numbers are so low and that unexplained community transmission has been all but zero.
    The flip side is that there are a lot, a very lot of businesses falling over who rely on not just international or interstate tourists, but movement of Queenslanders too.
    They hurt even more when we get rewarded with the greatest interstate tourism opportunity in a lifetime in getting the big dance to know that it won’t actually help, rather some big wigs lob in taking all of the seats away from the fans.

    My supervisor at work looked to book a few nights at Broadbeach over Christmas, a mere $800 a night, more than double… that’s not going to help anyone.

    The long term impacts are going to be shocking now we havs moved from flatten the curve to elimination – which I think NZ demonstrates is not possible

    The health approach is the easier sell when you post daily stats and everyone parrots the “How many deaths are acceptable ” line as if death is not inevitable and we haven’t been discussing tge merits of euthanasia for decades

    I’m extremely concerned for the medium term for this state, and the whole country
