Omicron – a cynic’s knee-jerk

For all those Jones-ing for another shot of fear and alarm – heeere’s Omicron!

The media loves it cos it sells eyeballs.

Politicians love it cos they get to tell more people what to do.

Big Pharma loves it cos they sell more merchandise.

Sheople love it cos they get to ‘do the right thing’. And post it on social media.

Who pays?

Nobody, according to this from Brisbane’s Courier Mail on Sunday.

That’s right, Pfizer, bless them, “have agreed to supply” the doses. Nowhere does the story mention any payment, any monetary figures.

But don’t worry, it’s ok. Because Scott Morrison says “there is nothing more important than the health of our children”.

And who am I to argue with that?
