Our truth problem
Scott Morrison congratulated Joe Biden for winning the recent US election, but he has lost none of the Trumpism mannerisms that he learned from Donald over the past four years.
The man is a walking, talking, hypocrisy machine.
The incoming American President has been very encouraged by Australia's, particularly Victoria's efforts in containing the Coronavirus, from over 700 cases a day to zero, and has asked the PM to send him our response details.
Only problem is, Joe Biden was asking the wrong person.
He should have asked Dan Andrews, as Morrison had bugger all to do with Victoria's response.
If we had listened to him, Hunt and Frydenberg who continually abused Victoria's response to the virus, we would have been in more strife than Speed Gordon, then left high and dry by these federal losers.
It is just sheer hypocrisy for Morrison to take credit for Australia's response.
All along he and his dud ministers were attacking Victoria, with no regard to the health of us, attending national cabinet meetings and then later on giving us another serve.
We have a serious " truth problem" in our country.
It has got to the stage where you cannot believe anything, rather than most things.
This is a sad and concerning indictment on our political system, where smoke and mirrors, with alleged deliberate lying, becoming an every day occurrence.
Until there is any attitude change from the top, you cannot expect any similar change from the bottom.
Absolute common sense - really.

An inconvenience store?
The author or developer seems more excited than some re the proposed construction of a 24 hr convenience store on the corner of Bridge and Arnold streets.
A convenience store was on the major corner of High and View street for a relatively short time but suffered lack of clientele after hours.
The site is inappropriate, as it is not on a major road. It involves fuel storage in a hospital, medical and residential area, and will involve strong lighting.
The traffic description plays down effects of supposed traffic flow.
If there is a low traffic flow into the servo why build it?
Why send vehicles into narrow Uley Street?
Do we need another one in Bendigo regardless of its brand?
A number of Bendigo's similar servos close at night for safety and basic lack of late night trade.
