Nah the doofus said "you have your solar panels on the roof and you can charge your car for free overnight"

Look it up. Im sure sky news will have it. They love him ( sarcasm)

Yeah, agree, not inspiring at all.

To charge a car i hate to think how many batteries youll need. Ive got one(+ panels) last 2 maybe 3 hrs on basic electric use. Tv, lights & fridges.

Sky News was the only place i could find it, and considering how biased they are against the Labor Party, reinforces my point that Albo's quote implied batteries are involved.

I'm sure he did. But battery technology today would require you to have a lot of solar panels and a lot of batteries to charge your EV every night. More than your average house could have.

I don't know all that much about battery technology apart from my general perception that capacity is increasing and costs are dropping, making large scale batteries for everyday uses closer to an economical reality. How far away that truly is i don't know, but I give Albo credit for talking about a long-term green energy vision rather than the adaption-to-climate-change rhetoric from our current government.

Judge Albo how you want, but no one should be fooled by Sky News' twisted implications that he somehow doesn't understand the basics of solar-generated electricity, that's clearly not the case.

UK figures show death by blood clots as a result of AZ vaccine: 4 per Million
Deaths by blood clots from Covid-19: 1800 per Million

I'd take the AZ vaccine if it was the only one available today.

Yeah, but you won't. You are having the Moderna one on Monday.

yes, who knows? The 48 year old who died evidently had some other underlying health issues.

I'm having the AZ in the next week or so and I am over 50. My risk of blood clots from it would be far less than a young healthy woman making the decision to go on the contraceptive pill.

Seems to be a bit of transmission going on in hotel quarantine despite people being separated in different rooms. Very hard to contain when it's airborne.
Can't help but feel it's a matter of time before we get another breach with so many returning from OS with infection.

Found it in a couple of places. Current technology in batteries ( i have one installed) wont charge a car. Even if he implied tech is not there to do it. False bs claim irrespective. Hate to think how many batteries it would take. Just a crap comment either way imo.

Spoke to some work colleagues in India. It's quite bad there and they're resigned to being the world's herd immunity trial. The culture there makes it near impossible for people not to mingle closely. The hospitals are struggling. They also said that this strain ripping through them seems to be a lot more contagious than previous ones.

Saw an article today reporting that ScoMo was pleading for over 50s to get the vaccine.

Really?

You incompetent f***, we'd be getting the vaccine if you had organised the vaccination properly.

Total deflection that statement, trying to shift the blame. If he wants to see who to blame he should look in a mirror.

I saw a clip yesterday of two patients lying on the same bed on ventilators. It’s seriously bad

It's a complete ballsup with confuscation & mixed messaging. Almost by design.

People cancelling vaccine appoitments due to blood clot concerns so why not throw the programme open to whoever wants to get their jab now?
The "Phases" are in complete disarray so why persist with them?

I'd guess you'd be waiting until sometime in 2022 then. I'm not convinced that "secured" means anything other than we're somewhere in a queue of indeterminate length.
