    “Australia's leaders will discuss lifting coronavirus restrictions for the first time TODAY - as country is told an app that monitors your every move could hold the key to a return to normal life”

    The TraceTogether application is currently being used in Singapore to help track the spread of the disease.

    Australia has been given the code to develop the surveillance software and it is expected to be rolled out within the next fortnight.

    TraceTogether uses Bluetooth to detect other users in close proximity, with encounters stored on a person's phone.

    They then have to share the records with authorities when asked to be part of a tracing investigation.

    'We're very keen to use it and use it perhaps even more extensively than Singapore,' Dr Murphy told a New Zealand parliamentary hearing”

    First they say it’s optional. Then, maybe not so much.

    Listening to the feelgood reporting on the app, together with the motherhood statements thrown in, gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. I will be the first to put up my hand for enrolment.
    I’ll have it with me at the next silver meet so will be able to show you all how it works.

    If you are doing nothing wrong you have nothing to fear!

    Sadly I do not own a mobile phone so I will not be eligible to join in, shame!

    Free Phones as Part of Corona Response!

    "Optional tracking" sounds like "Temporary tax".

    If you believe either of these, I have a bridge to sell you.

    The Party has determined that not carrying a smart phone with the new "Ministry of Freedom" app will result in a penalty to your Social Credit Score and a loss of train and air travel privileges.
