The principal findings of the research are: ... -mandate is a political idea in two senses. Mandate doctrine derives from the politics of responsible government on a democratic basis. It does not derive from constitutional, legal or parliamentary prescription. Moreover, a mandate is not a substitute for prescribed constitutional, legal or parliamentary procedures, though it may influence the workings of such procedures [ed; indeed!] -second, mandate doctrine has been mainly developed by politicians in political forums rather than by philosophers or academics ... -there is considerable debate about what a mandate is ... critics of mandate doctrine portray it as a device for nullifying or circumventing due processes of government and legislation.VIC | Priority Postcodes Targeted In Local Vaccination Push 5 Oct 2021 https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/priority-postcodes-targeted-local-vaccination-pushVIC | More Than Two Million Rapid Antigen Tests On The Way 6 Oct 2021 https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/more-two-million-rapid-antigen-tests-way News/Media/Misc (Mainstream)ABC News | Coles confirms end for in-store supermarket butchers, switch to all pre-packaged meat 6 Oct 2021 https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-06/coles-ends-in-store-butchers/100517566 Another rotten move by Coles.

(the first one, anyway). The frontpage headline and the article headline are both clickbait, but the former is baiting "anti-vaxxers" (whilst also mocking them with the childlike wording esp. "...that makes her 'very angry'") and the latter baits the "pro-vax" crowd. Absolutely bizarre.

Christchurch WAS suspicious (many do argue it was a false flag, complete with actors etc.) but what concerned me was the immediate and disproportionate response taken by NZ Government in relation to surveillance, online privacy and freedom of information, all under the guise of 'preventing a similar attack'. Well, we've all heard that one before. The police prosecutor told the court the offensive material included images of terrorists holding severed heads, and images that "promoted and glorified" the perpetrator of the 2019 Christchurch Mosque attacks. Well, those two cancel each other out entirely, so under what guise was he sent to an anti-terror youth reeducation program? Magistrate Adair noted the boy's interest in history but asked whether he now recognised that the images in his possession were "against the law". "It's just another part of history, in my opinion," the boy replied. What a badass kid.

But she did acknowledge that people who were anti-vaccine would likely support her petition. Another false operative (in Webster, at least). She was the subject of some alarming accusations by Karen Brewer last year relating to elite paedophilia. • ABC News | Mandatory COVID-19 vaccines for WA FIFO and mining workers, school leavers 5 Oct 2021 https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-05/mandatory-covid-19-jabs-for-wa-fifo-and-mining-workers/100514096ABC News | Dayton homicide probe launched in Perth's north-east after death of pregnant mother of three 5 Oct 2021 https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-05/woman-found-dead-in-dayton-perth-police-launch-homicide-probe/100515424 • ABC News | Here's why Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp went down 5 Oct 2021 https://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2021-10-05/facebook-instagram-messenger-whatsapp-how-they-went-down/100514288 "The official story", personally 'fact-checked' by Facebook itself. • ABC News | Portugal is running out of people to vaccinate.
