Makes you wonder doesn't it?

A lot of handlers are women

 

They're up there with the most evil people in the world.

When it comes to equality etc it's a con trick.

 

There are women in very high places

September 02nd:

 

But Premier Steven Marshall said the state was now "back to zero active cases … which is great news"

 

South Australia was held up as a beacon to the success of lockdowns and masks. Of course, the masses cannot remember what they had for breakfast so it doesn't matter.

'The Ouroboros Steak, named after the ancient Egyptian snake that eats itself, can be grown from cells scraped from the inside of your cheek and fed serum from old donated blood.'

I reckon SA will try to outdo Victoria and just go absolutely nuts. Could be the world's most psychopathic lock-down experiment. If people think this will be all over in a week, I seriously doubt that.

Autism shop slams 'despicable' £1,000 fine after refusing to close during lockdown

The council says the Autism Shop in Stirchley is not classified as an 'essential business'

A Stirchley shop which supports those with autism has been fined £1,000 after refusing to close during the second coronavirus lockdown.

The Autism Shop in Pershore Road remained open earlier this month despite not being classified as an 'essential business', prompting several visits by council officials and police officers.

However, the owners have argued their business serves as a vital lifeline for their customers and described the fine issued on November 12 as 'despicable'.

According to the shop's Facebook page, it is a 'not for profit' business which sells items which have been donated by the public and also funds vital sensory equipment.

In a video shared by the shop on Facebook on November 10, environmental health officers and several police officers are seen visiting the store to serve a prohibition order to stop trading as a shop.

The person filming, can be heard arguing they sell essential items such as food, water, alcohol gel and cleaning products.

The Autism Shop remained defiant afterwards, writing in a Facebook post two days later: "Just purchased another bike for a young lad who had his stolen.

"So West Midlands police and bham city council take note we will not close, we are essential to the autism community and beyond."

In a post on November 14, the Autism Shop said they would not pay the £1,000 fine they had been issued by the council.

"As you will be aware Birmingham City Council have said that the services we provide are 'not essential'.. all of our customers disagree", the post read.

"We have been hit with a £1,000 fine which we can reassure that we will NOT pay and certainly would never use money meant to help those with autism to pay a fine, which is just downright despicable."

A post a day later read: "We will be closed with effect from Monday 16th November until further notice,

"Whilst we are closed we are preparing for the appeals process with regards to the £1,000 fine that they have issued us with."

 

Again it begs the question of "what is an essential business"?
