Someone cue up the music from The Great Escape!
Three teens went over the wall of a COVID-19 “quarantine camp” in Australia’s sparsely populated Northern Territory (https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-12-01/multiple-people-escape-howard-springs-quarantine-facility-darwin/100663994). Their planning and preparation having been inadequate, they were soon captured and dragged back to the camp.
A grown man escaped a few days earlier. He has not yet been recaptured.
The teens climbed over the fence when no one was looking. So did the man, but he’d arranged for a getaway car.
Camp authorities darkly hint of “consequences.” I wonder if they have a “cooler.” Or do they just shoot you?
When are they going to start tunneling? Will they need fake passports? Civilian clothes made from prison–er, “camp”–blankets and throw rugs? When are the “authorities” going to add dogs, watchtowers, and searchlight?.
And you will never believe what they’re calling this place! “The Centre of National Resilience”. God save us.
We thought it was bad here in America. And by comparison with just three years ago, it is. But holy cow, Australia! You don’t want to be there. They’re killing freedom with a sledge hammer.
