Aldi had toilet paper today, and had plenty of stock, which means:

1) The crazies have bought all they needed and won't need any more

or;

2) The crazies do not know about this yet

1) they are fully stocked

2) Border Control is stopping shipping containers from leaving the country

Bonus for the rest of us



as an aside I did hear that some loonies are trying to take it back to the supermarkets but they are refusing to take it

Did you hear? Border police have just seized 2 tons of toilet paper hidden in cocaine.

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

My daughter rang the Police last night on her neighbours, they were having a social gathering of about 30 people, they are from the middle east. The police said that they were having complaints from all over about exactly the same issue. I really hoped they issued them a $1000 fine per family

I don't get it why did your daughter call the police , i mean as you say its just the flu, tell your daughter to take some codral cold and flu and she be right in the morning.

I heard there will be a name change to the series next year, the new name is Penske mustang cup series with their major sponsor to be Laxative guarantee to clear any backing up at Bathurst 2020.

Maybe she suspected that number of people in the mosque next door (or building being used as a place of worship) wasn't large enough to ensure 4 square metres per person?

Or, did she suspect Mossad agents were deliberately spreading a new strain of the virus?

Not sure what her perception of the way they look has anything to do with this? Why not just say, her neighbour had a gathering?

Trev didn't say they looked different. That's your assumption (which is interesting in itself). For all we know, Trev's daughter knows the neighbours well and contacted the police because she felt discriminated against because she wasn't invited.

I always thought that an unwritten rule was discussions by others on ones families was a no-no, but I guess that that must be a 'gentleman's agreement'

Surely if they're from a different culture and the message hasn't gotten through due to a language barrier or whatever, then it's ok to discuss genuine concerns about that. With at least some of the blame arguably falling on the government for not having communicated better. Nothing to do with how they look.

Stats show Australia led the world in panic buying.

That's my conclusion after looking at Google's mobility data. Some countries managed a few days at high levels, but no one matched Australia for sustained high levels of trips to supermarkets.

It's possible that a lack of stock resulted in people making leaving stores without the goods they needed, having to return again & again.
Does this point to a supply problem or just lots of idiots?

More of them in NZ where panic buying was not as prevalent. That suggests that without kiwi's in Oz, your stats would be even worse.
