LIVE PICTURES: Melbourne Construction Workers Protest Against Tea Room Closures

Refusing to get up off the road unless they are allowed to play with their tea sets again, hundreds of little construction workers have blocked traffic in streets across Melbourne in response to the government’s plan to bring in new COVID-19 restrictions for the industry.

Under the new measures, tea rooms will be closed at construction sites to help reduce the spread of the virus.

In an official statement today, a spokesperson for the workers – who have been able to continue working throughout the pandemic – said, “Waaaaaa! Waaaaaa! Waaaaaaa!”

Despite the fact that thousands of Australians have lost their jobs and thousands more have been unable to go to work or school, construction worker Jonno ‘Bigdog’ Taylor, 26, said it’s not fair.

“It’s not … it’s not … f … f … fair,” he stuttered through tears as he rolled around on the ground. “I wan … I want my cuppa. Give me my cuppa!”

Barry ‘Tommo’ Thomson echoed his co-worker’s concerns. “I’m not getting up! You can’t make me! I’m never getting up!” he said, kicking his feet on the ground.

Police were called to protest locations and have been forced to use a bottle and a daytime nap to calm the situation.

TGA Demands Halt To Craig Kelly Texts, Citing ‘Seriously Misleading’ Assumption That Anyone Gives a Shit What He Thinks

The Therapeutic Goods Administration has issued United Australia Party leader Craig Kelly a cease and desist letter, following a period of spamming constituents with text messages steeped in anti-vaccination sentiment, citing the ‘seriously misleading’ presumption that anyone in Australia cares what he has to say.

Lawyers for the TGA have written to Mr. Kelly, demanding that he ‘stop distributing incomplete, or even complete, extracts of adverse event reports relating to COVID-19 vaccines, or any other topic for that matter, because no one gives a shit.’

In an official statement, the TGA stated, “Mr. Kelly’s texts removed important information about why this bigoted, misinformed relic of the past thinks his opinions matter beyond having the constitutionally-questionable power to hold people hostage through their phones”, and further, “The TGA has acted to ensure the public receives relevant information, and not misleading texts from a man who’s convinced screaming loudly means what he’s saying is important.”

No questions have been raised about the TGA’s authority to issue sweeping value judgments in matters not pertaining to the regulation of therapeutic goods, presumably as a result of nobody caring enough to side with Mr. Kelly.
