INSIDIOUS: Peta Credlin has used her Sky News After Dark program to promote 2021 suicide statistics, leading her audience to believe they're high due to lockdowns. Credlin failed to mention that the suicide figures are the lowest they've been in years. #auspol
Credlin also claimed that lockdowns are responsible for 340 children per week presenting for care in April-May 2021. Credlin failed to mention that Victoria was not locked down during this period.
Credlin calls it the 'Shadow Pandemic'. There is a shadow pandemic; it's insidious lies, using our most vulnerable and our children, wrapping them in lies and weaponising them for retail politics.

Why lockdowns? Deaths are so low, right?

Thanks to lockdowns. Without lockdowns cases would be many, many times higher, as would hospitalisations and deaths.

We also must remember that mortality rates will increase when hospitals hit capacity. If we can't treat them, more die.
Everyone has a hard story about lockdown. Nobody likes it. But it's a necessary evil because the alternative is unthinkable. When hospitals are full, it won't just be covid cases dying unnecessarily. There'll be many non-covid related deaths that could easily have been prevented.
There has not been any increase in suicides because of lockdowns. That myth has never been backed up with any figures. It is pure retail politics; a brutal lie. There is a mental health crisis, and there has been for years. It's amazing just who's ready to speak about it now.

Look I get the criticisms of Labor when they do/don't do the thing I/you personally want them to do. But I also get that they need to be strategic, which may or may not mean dropping good platforms which haven't been successful.
We need them to win on strategy, not lose on ideals. It's frustrating but it's reality, especially in a landscape where media will fool most voters into voting against their interests. They have to close windows of attack; they need to win over people watching Sunrise and Today.
Sometimes we need to remember that given the current corrupt media/political landscape, we're quite fortunate to have a choice that isn't fucked. Think you deserve better? Sure, me too, but let's be real, auspol has been fucked for a while.

The guy on the left has been arrested again for breaching bail in connection with fringe Qanon / anti mask / 5G / vaccine / government protests. The guy on the right is Victorian opposition leader Michael O'Brien. #SpringSt
Same guy, different 'friend' on the right. Professional con artists who've perfected the art of getting arrested for show, then begging for donations with slick websites which raise eye-watering sums from gullible fans.
They're good at making money. In fact they sell the same MAGA merch as Victorian opposition leader Michael O'Brien.

They went from bankrupt, after starving a million chickens to the point of cannibalim, to extremely wealthy after receiving fortunes from the federal government to abuse the elderly. No wonder Aged Care is a disaster in Australia. Zero action from Morrison. #AgedCareScandal
Now the commonwealth is protecting these animals.

No leader should ever apologise for making the right decisions to save lives. Nobody likes lockdowns but, as the world has learned, sometimes they're necessary. This is proof positive this bastard UK strain can jump quarantine even when you do all the right things. #IStandWithDan
Victorians, we're lucky to have strong leaders who don't shy away from the best decisions, despite the endless nagging / noise from those who wish to see us fail. Five days is a walk in the park for us, let's show the world what we're made of and kick this UK strain in the balls.
No major state has had an easy run with this. Many states have struggled and had major incidents. There's no magic approach to HQ. I trust we'll have the vaccine soon - it's being made right here in Melbourne. Soon enough these lockdowns will be our shared history.

GIANT Merry Christmas to Dan Andrews and family. What a year, COVID-19 waged war on Victoria, News Corp joined in, followed by the Morrison Government and Victorian Liberals. Andrews stayed cool under that immense fire and won the war. Serious stripes earned there. Respect. 🔥
And let's not forget the crazed Qanon protest brigade egged on by Channel 7, Herald Sun & Victorian Liberals. An army of nutters tried to take Melbourne by storm to fight an imaginary New World Order led by an imaginary dictator. They tried to spread Covid, but Dan still won 🎉
On behalf of the awesome Victorians who know how lucky we are, and the handful who may still be too silly to ever understand, a GIANT thank you, Merry Christmas and a happy new year to Dan and family. ❤️🎄🎅🎉
