Ben Davison looks at the current COVID crisis, how Morrison and Gladys have helped each other avoid responsibility as Australians die and states are locked down by the Delta variant that was allowed to leak out of Sydney but a Premier and a PM too slow to react, too arrogant to do what was needed and too political to put our health above their polling numbers.

Morrison turned down an open ended offer from Pfizer for vaccines last year becasue, at $20 a dose, he said they were too expensive. Today he's arranged 1M doses from Poland and refused to say how much they are costing.

Some corporations want to be able to mandate vaccines while Australian Unions make the point there aren't enough to make that work, we should be removing barriers like no paid leave and providing support like paid vaccination leave if we want to help people get vaccinated.

Afghanistan is falling to the Taliban and Australia needs to get our allies out. Get the safe. Get them here. Before more innocent people are murdered as an example to not work with the west.

Unions in NSW win payments for workers who have to take time off to get tested and/or isolate because of the pandemic. A big win in a state where the government has refused to work with working people and continues to believe "more fines" is the universal answer to every question.

Plus we give a shoutout to our friends over at On The Job!
