It’s a little complicated trying to stay on top of everything and all the premiers — or the coppers or bureaucrats they hide behind — haven’t popped up yet for their daily briefing, but as far as the Flat White team can determine if you are a Victorian you can now travel to New Zealand but not Western Australia.

After wracking our brains for a parallel, global and locally, we’ve only been able to find the one.


Remember when ISIS controlled parts of Iraq about a decade ago? A poor Iraqi could fly in and out of Baghdad internationally, but could not travel to Fallujah in their own land.

Is the only way to get from Melbourne to Perth, like back in those days, by tank as part of the US Army?

We have completely and utterly lost it in Australia with our mad border controls — and Scott Morrison makes your average eunuch look like a symbol of potency.
