I'd still like to hear it directly from someone who can confirm they personally saw/heard the judges say it was unanimous.

It's probably my decades of conditioning against hearsay kicking in 😂

I watched the judgement streamed live, and can confirm that it was advised to be a unanimous decision by those presiding, and that detailed reasons in writing would follow in time.

Cheers,
Matt.

So now with Australia recognized Sputnik V for travel purposes (which is big mistake by itself), are they going to fix this?
View attachment 268453
Russian player Natalia Vikhlyantseva was unable to travel to Australia due to her vaccine, Sputnik V, not being recognised by Australian authorities.
Would be nice to see their reaction if Joko decide to get SputnikV just for coughs and giggles 😆TGA emergency authorization on the same day.

So there are several pictures of him in the Marhaba lounge at Melbourne this evening (including posted above).

I'm confused I thought there was a vaccine requirement that to access venues (which includes airline lounges) in Victoria you had to be vaccinated or had a *legit* exemption.
The airport is a Federal jurisdiction. A passenger has to check in and wait somewhere in the terminal, even deported pax. (Besides which, the government didn’t need any further outrage from reports he was kept in an isolation room! 😂)

So an official release from the Prime Minister rates lower than someone else whom you also haven't really met on AFF?

He is limited with options getting anywhere being unvaxxed. I’m fairly sure Etihad and Qatar are both vaccination only.

Emirates group is one of the very few long haul carriers available to him.

I guess he can just use BizJets. His worth what half a billion? I guess he couldn’t get one lined up in time .

I read those from the right,the left and in the middle.
I totally agree with overall strategy and trying to do the same where possible.
But for me in case of RT its a way too far into pure, refined, best in the world brainwash.

Take their coverage on vaccination.
All their overseas channels broadcasting heavy antivax BS (like RT Germany recently shut down by German authorities) in a bid to stall vaccination on the West.
But for local consumption it's 100% opposite truing to rise humiliating vaccination tally and make up ppls mind in a way Russia got best response to pandemic.

Wonder how much a bizjet costs? 3 of them Melb to Serbia in F is over $10k each. Probably much more once you add in the Emirates VIP service for celebrities.

Actually very few carriers stipulate vaccination as a condition of carriage, certainly not ME, European or US airlines (generally).

I watched it live and heard the word unanimous too.
