Australia politics live news: new Covid restrictions in place in NSW, Victoria begins vaccination blitz

Qantas is pushing ahead with its own incentive scheme to have people vaccinated.

The airline will be mandating vaccines for its staff (except where there are medical reasons) and is now incentivising its passengers to become double vaccinated as well. From its release:

“The Qantas Group is launching its reward campaign for COVID-19 vaccinated Australians to recognise their role in helping the country get out of lockdown.

From tomorrow, fully vaccinated Australian-based Frequent Flyers who are 18 and over will be able to claim their reward through the Qantas App by choosing one of three options:

  • 1000 Qantas points
  • 15 status credits (which help Frequent Flyers move up between Silver, Gold and Platinum tiers)
  • $20 flight discount for Qantas or Jetstar

Members will then be automatically entered into a mega prize draw to win a year’s worth of flights, accommodation and fuel.”

And the long promised agriculture visa looks like finally getting a look in.

It’s been David Littleproud’s personal passion project, has taken years, but he says he is close to delivering it.

Kelly and Clive Palmer have been spotted together in the parliamentary precinct in the before times, so none of this should come as a surprise.

Oh, in case you missed it, Hughes MP and former Liberal Craig Kelly sent out a media release alerting the world that he will be announcing his federal election ‘intentions’ at 9.20am.

Stay tuned for that one.
