We’re ready to get back out there again.

As we do, it’s up to all of us to stay COVID safe.

Any time you leave your house:

Wash your hands regularly,

Keep physical distance where you can,

Have the COVIDSafe app on your phone

Stay COVID free and do the three.

It might be only an Australian thing, but it is used in the context of "pivoting your business" to basically adapt to the new "Covid realities". Here are some examples in actual usage:

 

5 tips to help you pivot your business (Westpac Bank):

Inside the Business Australia COVID pivot (CMO):

A chance encounter prompted this business owner's COVID-19 pivot:

And on and on it goes. Another absurd Covid brainwashing term, dreamed up by the propaganda experts.

First it was don't drive off to a nearby bit of countryside on your own, so as to solely indulge in a bit of sun bathing, as you 'might' touch something like a tree. If you did and got caught, then you would be 'personally responsible' for the worsening of the lockdown restrictions on literally everyone else in the nation. Hancock said exactly that. Now, in a deadly second wave in the middle of winter no less, it is schools, colleges and universities can all stay open! Cos you just know all of those young people are going to properly follow the government guidelines on responsible behaviour and not spread any virus about*. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha... 😀

 

* - Going by the government's own narrative here.

'Mock outrage' at Dom Cummings, if that counts. What's more believable, or should I say less unbelievable, out of Dom's 'test my eyes' story and the narrative spun by Gerry and Kate McMason? Dom's fabrication is way more solid, yet the mass media were sniffing around for holes like keen bloodhounds weren't they. With the McMasons, they all seem to literally be lost in a deep haze don't they. 'Right, let's trot off to Germany to film a pointless dig for a few days'. Sigh.

All of these sayings you constantly hear from the government are all forms of ‘war time propaganda’. One massive aspect of propaganda during the first and Second World War was repetition, which we are constantly hearing. For example, “we must....” & “unprecedented times”. Another example would be to build around a slogan, and I think we can all name numerous slogans from this last 8 months.

This is incredible to read. I started a thread on the old forum, about 5 years ago now, having a big bash at all of the bad grammar and spelling that was slowly beginning to appear in mass media news articles! Everyone should, of course, freely post their personal views to the best of their ability, but the mass media are surely supposed to be setting a high standard.
