Over 1,000 Territorians gave responded to the Government’s matching people to available jobs, expressing a desire to go fruit picking.

For TAL to discontinue insuring doctors against COVID-19 risk is reprehensible. This insurer states on the web, “at TAL we’re dedicated to supporting you and your family when life leaves its mark”.

Overseas students like the one featured in the front page story of “The Weekend Australian” who admit to flouting social distance rules should have their student visas torn up.

They epitomise the social fever increasingly gripping this country, that they are owed by the Australia and the world.
