It's a conspiracy!
Tuesday 7th April - Australia - 5895 cases - 231 per million population

I'm starting to believe those conspiracy theories doing the rounds; the one's that spruik that this whole government response to the virus thingy is a contrived scam.

No, I haven't lost my marbles entirely, I know the disease is real, the illness terrifying, the front-line carers brave and extraordinary human beings.  I also know that the dictionary says that "Isolation" is the state of being alone or away from others, the act of keeping apart from others.  

I know too that when the government says "stay home" except to shop for food or to exercise (then go straight home), that our national character is such that we'll take that as a challenge.  We'll all be looking for loopholes.

Therefore today, Tuesday, mid afternoon, mid week, when "our" beach should have been deserted it was shuddering under the weight of every man and his dog and probably his neighbour's dog as well, "exercising" just to prove a point.   

Midway along that beach today the penny dropped. What if this was a deliberate ploy?  It's obvious isn't it?  They're having a lend of us.  They WANT us to go out.  By the end of this isolation thing, we'll be the most underfed, over-exercised nation on earth.   

The Bronzed Aussie is coming back!
