I wasn't aware of this quote from Mathias Cormann in 2014 - he was Finance Minister back then, now he is the boss of the OECD, one of the bastions of economic orthodoxy. And on this, he is absolutely right!

This is worth a read
🧵 The battle for your morals Morrison's office work closely with Chris Kenny (+ Sky's darkness loiterers) Kenny's interview with Deves yesterday wasn't an accident Her quotes weren't either What Morrison is inflaming here is exactly what he wants It's all going to plan.

My hairdresser: “you can take your mask off” Me: “no thank you” HD: “you can though” Me: “no, thank you” HD: “I’ve had COVID, I was hardly sick” Me: “I’m a doctor. I’ve seen hundreds of people who would disagree with you.” Keep your mask on.
