As well as being profoundly irrational and damaging to our freedom and to our economy, elements of the Australian lockdowns may well be unlawful.  A number of legal experts question the constitutionality of things like the prevention of Australian overseas from returing home.

Peter Ridd was a respected Australian academic who dared to question "the science" of climate change, and in particular, the work of colleagues at his then university.  He was sacked for his trouble.  He is now heading for the High Court, and all of us should be hoping he wins his case.  There is much at stake - for freedom.

Lockdown and the New Left Privilege

The Covid lockdown has infringed the rights and liberties of ordinary Australians in ridiculous ways while leftists have been able to turn up at protest rallies for this, that and the other.  Spot the tilt to the left, facilitated by the State?  The double standards are palpable.

Australian leaders are fond of making apologies.  Perhaps one is owed to Cardinal Pell following his High Court exoneration.  Among the many public figures who owe such an apology, the Cardinal might well expect one from our Prime Minister.
