The accompanying picture to this article shows a very nice looking medical type establishment.
Is this inside our 25 mill pop-up joint ?

    It appears to be and like other government initiated “pop-up” ventures in Canberra it has been unnecessary, expensive and under utilised.

    Capital Retro,
    I agree with you, it would be much better if it was full of people dying. Then we’d be getting real bang for our buck.

    Quick question on a totally separate issue, have you ever bought an insurance product?

    Thanks for agreeing with me, for a change. If it is known they are going to die they could have been comfortably accommodated in tents like victims were during the Spanish Flu epidemic 100 years ago. Indeed, a lot of people are now choosing to die at home with COVID 19.

    I am not sure what you mean by insurance “product”. I have insurance on house, cars etc. also hospital. What is your point?

    By any chance, are you offering to sell me insurance on climate change?

    Capital Retro,
    Jeez that seems strange.

    Why would you buy unnecessary, expensive amd under utilised insurance?

    Surely you should just save your money and take the risk that everything will be fine.

    You are not making any sense.

    I’m making plenty of sense to anyone who understands basic logic.

    The surge facility was built as insurance to an uncertain risk.

    The fact that risk has not been realised does not make the facility unnecessary, expensive or underutilised.

    If the risk had been realised and the facilty not built, no doubt you would be attacking the government for a lack of forward planning.

    The fact that you have insurance on your house and other assets shows that you should really understand this, unless you like buying things for no reason.

    Facilitating a 90%+ vaccination rate doesn’t really sound like “under utilisation” to me…
