The ones in India that test positive must stay there untill they
recover,( or die, only 02% ?) so shouldn't be a problem ??

Donkeyman! 👍🤗👍
that is exactly what they will be doing so everyone is getting their knickers in a twist - this will be very organized and orderly but they are now wanting to avoid hotel quarantine and go for outback facilities which gives them more freedom but no city access.

Re: Home amongst the gum trees!

well happy to report that our first half empty plane arrived safely at Darwin airport and the ozzie Indians were transported to their temporary accommodation on the sparkling new army base - and they settled in well into their little cabins! x 14days. Got some athletes coming in next trip but they are paying their own way I understand?

They are Australian returning residents and to call them anything else is an insult. They have been appallingly treated by Scotty and his cronies, fortunately the backlash from their fellow Australians has forced the government's hand to actually do something rather than looking for someone else to blame.

What makes you think it is free?

Quarantine is about $3000 per person for the fortnight and on top of that is the airfare which even on government sponsored flights is far more than commercial used to charge pre pandemic.

I was reading recently that fares from the UK are $10000 for returning residents on commercial jets.

bulldust - ever heard of dual nationality - I've got one? - when they're coming here its 'aussie' when they're goin there it's Indian and proud of it - good cricketers too! - and by the way I have many Indian friends who would just laugh at this
