Do you think every small business that feels hard done by the various government announced COVID-19 restrictions should be entitled to compensation from the government? What about if they had already received JobKeeper or other government benefits? An interesting test case, but at what cost to the public?
Have you been following this issue? Is it possible to effectively and genuinely mediate while under public scrutiny? Ultimately, if she wants to clear her name in the public eye, then this would also be in her best interest too.
Not local news, but news nonetheless. As it happened when Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie Bezos divorced after 25 years of marriage, the focus will be on the money rather than the breakdown of their relationship. How is it going to affect Bill Gates' net worth? How much will Melinda Gates get from the settlement? What does it mean for their various organisations?
Does the world ask or care what happened to a couple after 27 years of marriage (and the emotional or mental toll) that results in divorce?
Should 'big business' return or be required/pressured into returning JobKeeper payments? Was the scheme really intended for them, especially where these benefits filtered through to be reflected in increased profits and dividends for shareholders? Or was JobKeeper really intended for the small struggling businesses that couldn't afford to maintain their staff during the economic downturn?
As Spock would say “Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
Travel restrictions and strict quarantine (even though not perfect) are the only things that have saved Australia so far. Applying these measures strictly ensure that we don't experience what other countries are or have experienced. So is it justified? Logic says yes.
Remember when the first few Australians were returning from Wuhan, China and they were sent to the offshore detention centres. That was a safety measure deemed necessary at the time. Subsequently, the onshore and hotel detention centre has largely worked, but there have been occasional outbreak concerns. Still, necessary to avoid local transmissions. Considering there's already been one case of infection, which is one too many, a travel ban on India doesn't seem like such a bad idea.
