Union Claims Protesters Weren’t Real Tradies: “There’s No Way They’d All Turn Up On Time”

"Our members are aiming to be there between 6am and 4pm today, but more likely Thursday or Friday"

Union Claims Protesters Weren’t Real Tradies: “There’s No Way They’d All Turn Up On Time”

The CFMEU has blamed outsiders for yesterday’s violent rally, saying the idea that two hundred tradies would all turn up at the specified time was fanciful.

In a strongly-worded statement, the union said the punctuality of the protesters was a tell-tale sign they weren’t members.

“This was clearly a group of well-organised extremists. The protest had a 12 noon start time yesterday. Our members are aiming to be there between 6am and 4pm today, but more likely Thursday or Friday. They’ll call when they’re on their way,” the statement read.

The union also said that the style of the protest made it clear tradies weren’t involved. “When our members attend a rally, generally one will protest while five or six others stand around in a circle and look on. That didn’t happen at this rally”.

Pfizer To Be Approved For 5-11 Year Olds In The US Next Month, Meaning It Could Be Available In Australia As Soon As 2032

"This is exciting news for thousands of unborn Australians"

Pfizer To Be Approved For 5-11 Year Olds In The US Next Month, Meaning It Could Be Available In Australia As Soon As 2032

Pfizer has announced that its vaccine has been successfully trialled on children aged 5-11 years, which is coincidentally the same number of years it will take for approval to be granted in Australia.   

Health Minister Greg Hunt said the exciting development meant a pre-schooler would be eligible for the jab when they turned 12, as per the current rollout regime. “But a child who isn’t born yet will be able to get the jab before their eleventh birthday, all going to plan, which is really great news for thousands of unborn Australians” he said.

Mr Hunt said there was no need to rush the approvals process. “We need to take the time to get this right, to make sure this vaccine has the highest efficacy possible. And the best way to do that is to allow enough time to pass for the pandemic to be over”

Mr Hunt confirmed he had not placed an order for more vaccines yet and instead will wait until closer to the time and then get some second-hand ones from Poland.
