Fair crack of the whip.

“The expression fair crack of the whip is used elsewhere but is recorded earliest in Australia, from 1902 onwards. It means ‘an equitable opportunity; a reasonable chance’. It is also used as an interjection, meaning ‘give (someone) a chance!’. In Australian English there are several variants of this idiom, all with the same meaning. They can be found in written sources from the 1980s, but probably go back some years earlier.

In the variant fair suck of the sauce bottle (with its elliptical form fair suck), the ‘sauce bottle’ is probably originally a reference to a bottle of alcoholic liquor”. 

The above quote is from Wiki.

My own interpretation dates to much earlier times when convicts sent from England graced our shores and were known to receive whippings by their masters ( the squattocracies’ ) that were finely balanced between sheer brutality and a more benign lashing. Hence, giving ‘A fair crack of the whip’.

All this in reference to the fact that Melbourne’s Lockdown period now outlasts that of Argentine’s Buenos Aires. For some six days now groups have tried to disrupt the Lockdown by Unlocking and face the streets openly and brazenly in defiance of orders to wear facemasks and not congregate in groups of more than two people. Scores have been arrested and hefty fines imposed .

My own experience makes me at times have some sympathy with the rioters which the government and media have been painting as extreme right wings pro-Nazis. They have avoided the previous popular slant of Nigerian street gangs as footage showed hundreds of police and many horses but not a coloured person in sight. As for Nazis, the only signs I have seen were ”Freedom , anti vaccination’, and I believe in Jesus, but not in vaccinations.”

The Government is desperate to hold the line but as a single person living by myself I feel enough is enough. The lockdown was supposed to be for a short time. My definition of short is, of little length, limited or short duration. In Melbourne it is now heading into its forth month. That is long, too long. It is supposed to save lives but the Delta still spreading, and now it is not saving lives that was the aim previously but to get double vaccinated which would have occurred weeks ago if the government had taken the trouble in ordering the vaccines when they became available. I haven’t seen my daughter, grandchildren or partner for over three months, despite being double vaccinated for well over 5 weeks. There are supposed to be exemptions on ”compassionate grounds” but the reality is different as the rules are only applicable when living within 5 km and if returning to my area, 100 km away, I would then have to self-isolate for 14 days.

It is complicated but it doesn’t feel like ” A fair crack of the whip”

      Yes, Peggy.
      The lifting will be in stages but the criteria is that those 80% double vaccinated will be allowed out, bask in the light, and those not vaccinated stay in a kind of purgatory and given stale morsels, cold cabbage, gruel ,while standing in a draught, till they see the ills of their ways.

    That’s right, Gerard, the lockdown was supposed to save lives. How come then, that Delta is spreading further and further and no end in sight?

    Maybe you’d like to have a look at what I wrote today out of sheer frustration?

    Stark reality of a two-tiered Australian society sinks in. By Cameron Stewart.

    I first quoted what Cameron Stewart wrote, and then I wrote a fairly long piece about our present situation and that this virus probably is going to stay with us for years and that we have to learn to live with it somehow.

      Yes, dear Uta, of course at an advanced stage of life the concerns about the future might be less urgent or relevant to someone at the beginning of their journey.

      I think that was good and brave of you to point out. I hope to reach 100 years but am not stressing out too much if not. All I have now is this moment, clicking away at my laptop.

      Yes, they are talking now about a third jab. And, that even double vaccinated one can get sick. It’s becoming a bit of a dance macabre. And those people in Government and the media are perhaps speaking from a privileged position. Not sleeping under bridges, no mortgage, that sort of thing.
      And the news; I get it now how an arm is bared to get a needle.

    It’s been tough for sure. 😦 I’m sorry you have seen your loved ones in so long. 😦

    Because of Covid19, distance (careers took them far across the country), dicey traveling, ability to get time off from jobs, then the Delta Variant hit and things changed again, etc, we haven’t seen our oldest kiddo, his wife, and kids since Dec of 2019. 😦 They came home for Christmas that year. Then Covid19 hit in March of 2020. We had a big family reunion planned for the Summer of 2020 and that had to be cancelled because of Covid19 and travel issues. Then they couldn’t come for Christmas 2020 because of Covid19 and travel issues. We hope they can join us and the rest of our family this Christmas. I miss them so very very very much. 😦

    I don’t share all that to complain. Just to say I do understand how you feel. It’s been very hard emotionally for me, not seeing all of my kids together is so long. Fortunately our daughter was able to come spend time with us for a couple weeks in the summer of 2021. 🙂 I am so so so grateful for that! 🙂

      Yes, and hard it is. I get by by sticking to a routine of walking and domestics.

      Some days I talk to a few kindred souls walking their dogs. What is your dog’s name, followed by , how old is your dog? I often see the same people, a kind of relief shown on furrowed face to exchange some words. It really is important.

      So sorry to hear you haven’t seen your family for such a long time. My daughter moved into a new address and I could not even help her let alone see her.

      My three grandsons are really suffering too, doing their uni stuff on-line, missing seeing friends. I so fear for their mental state. We text a lot, and that helps.

      I wonder when those cost analyses are done about Lockdowns, if the cost of mental anguish, the loss of happiness due to loneliness from social isolation, the crowded out healthcare system for problems other than Covid, the long term cost to children, their interrupted studies, all those shuttered down businesses never to come back?
      Is that taken in consideration?

      Hugs too, Gerard

        You talk about the cost of isolation, Gerard. Of course, there is a cost. Over the course of my long life there have been times when I was well aware of this cost, long before Covid19! I feel privileged now, that I can isolate in a beautiful home and that I have kind of learned how to live in isolation, and to be prepared to live in isolation for as long as I need to in order to avoid having to live in a kind of isolation under hospital conditions or full time care conditions. 🙂

        Sure, I miss not being able to hug my loved ones. But I feel, social distancing is for me essential for as long as I have to live all by myself and have to look after myself 24 seven without anybody living by my side! Peter always said, being married is like having your missing half living with you, like without me one half of him was missing! 🙂

        I too talk to people in the park that are walking their dogs. Today, I was contemplating, maybe I should apply for a companion dog that I would be allowed to take everywhere with me, I mean a small well trained, easily to handle dog. 🙂

        Daughter Gaby had a companion dog. 🙂 As you know, she was a quadriplegic. She could go on public transport in her electric wheel-chair taking her dog with her fastened to her wheel-chair on a line. If she could do it, why does everyone think I cannot go on public transport anymore? Am I worse off than a quadriplegic just because I am old?

        Yes, Uta.
        I can recommend a pet. When on my walk I talk to people exercising themselves and their dogs. It is now so important that despite lockdowns pet shops are allowed to stay open. ( so are wine shops)

        The isolation of having lost a partner is sad but unavoidable and different from the isolation of forced lockdowns which affects the elderly and those from lower socio-economic people most.

        It is a difficult dilemma. How does one measure the cost of saving lives against the cost of the measures taken to save lives?

        Taken the population of both Sydney and Melbourne and the lockdown now in its fourth month effects 8 million people.

        It is absurd.
        Damocles would have a hard time.

    Dear Gez and friends, please accept my best wishes for a speedy release from this solitary confinement.

    My heart goes out to everyone especially doing lockdown on your own. I thank you for reminding me of my privilege. What a cell ! Fantastic old but large house and block in the inner west of Sydney. But all this still feels precarious – at 68 and 61 we still have a mortgage – and thankfully well-paid jobs working from home online. Difficult to not ruminate on the risk of losing jobs and having to sell up the place we’ve spent 30 years returning to the 1890s when the house was completed.

    We have spent most of the last 21 months in our garden and like you walked every inch within our 5km radius.

    There have been a few times when we’ve gotten on each other’s nerves but the house has proven to be big enough to get away from each other when that was a good idea.

    We are definitely privileged, we are double vaxxed but still unhappy sometimes. The cold rainy days are the worst. Despite having jobs, my problem is moreover working up the motivation to do them- or much of anything else.

    Sometimes in the evenings we find ourselves in a collective funk watching total shit on Netflix, iView or SBS On Demand.

    This feels like the existential grief, the psychological hell that prisoners must suffer – and it’s not difficult to imagine why they so often resort to violence out of sheer frustration. Made me painfully aware of how deeply cruel incarceration is.

    Kind of explains but not excuses the street violence. Sheer frustration that Covid is diabolically hard to overcome – treading a fine line to not overwhelm our Heath system or put each other at risk. And the economic carnage will take generations to repair.

    Since January 2020 our two daughters have given birth to a grandson – now about 15 months old and a granddaughter- just a month old and Zoom or FaceTime is a very poor substitute for a cuddle. Yesterday I received a text message that the little bub cannot move one arm – from nerve damage in her neck during birth. She starts physio therapy today and as alarming as the news was, the prognosis for a full recovery is very good.

    But being unable to get to Hobart to the give the loving support grandparents do, is very painful.

    On a brighter note, we made a major switch to the Mediterranean diet – taking Norman Swan’s advice – not snacking or eating between 8:00pm and noon the next day. Small and better balanced meals. Slooowly losing weight.

    Getting more exercise plus meditating on Zoom with my Buddhist men’s group 4 times a week.

    Doing the best we can – and keeping on.

    And being grateful that we have it so much better than most everywhere else.

    I’m off to meditation- love to you all.

      Yes Emm , I too thought how it would be locked down cooped up with a partner. I see sometimes people on the street muttering to themselves, swinging their arms or worse, reading the Daily Telegraph.

      Of course I am privileged, have smart TV and can hop onto my laptop and vent nonsense using words. I don’t have to catch the 401 to Central Station and work as Quantity surveyor to service a mortgage. Gee, you have a mortgage but in your neck of the woods, there will be a solid pile waiting when retirement start knocking on your door!

      Glad to hear you and FM are still together and now the shared delights of grandchildren but without the cuddles, that are so necessary. Perhaps not having to deal with nappies is of some comfort, Trouserzoff?

      I remember with our babies we used a nappy service. It was better than sliced bread. Of course later came the disposable nappy now littering the oceans.

      Yes, I think the people rat bagging in the cities protesting against lockdowns went too far when urinating at a Return Soldiers Centepath.

      I just wished we would be also be Locking down on wars. There were none of those Lockdown measures when getting killed and actively killing people in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

      No Lockdown on a smiling Morrison rubbing his hands together in anticipation of nuclear subs egging on the Chinese to teach them a lesson or two. It’s all so complicated when things should be easy and peaceful.

    I hate that you’re having to live through this. The cruelty of many of the lockdown orders around the world has been beyond anything I would have imagined. The damage being done to both children and adults is incalculable. I cannot for the life of me figure out why no one seems to understand that we are imposing on whole societies the very isolation that is considered maximum punishment in prisons. Isolation and the consequent removal of external stimuli is condemed by various international organizations as torture, and yet we allow politicians and bureaucrats to engage in the same sort of torture.

    I count myself more than lucky to be living in Texas. Some call us Neanderthals, but we can eat in a restaurant without “showing papers,” go to rodeos and live music concerts, and travel freely. Yes, the disease is still with us, but so is the flu. I’m convinced that natural immunity is developing among many of the unvaccinated; if that’s so, combined with the increasing number of vaccinations, things can only improve. I sure hope the same for you.

      Yes, the 11th of Oct is now touted as ‘freedom day’. The NSW premier has gingerly stated that certain measures will be lifted but in ‘stages’.

      The most urgent might well be the opening of cafes and hair salons. There are some amusing examples of home hair cuts about. Some say that masks might have to stay on. I find it a very risky business because a few times my hearing aids were left dangling on the face mask after removal.

      You are right. A kind of imprisonment to millions to save lives is an issue that seems to be in the hands of epidemiologists and number forecasters who change and chop around like manic dervishes.

      First it was short but sharp Lockdowns which worked till Delta came along. Then, a succession of different Lockdowns in different areas and states and of different durations.

      The population were at first accommodating but when the ‘short and snappy’ Lockdowns run into weeks and then months that rumblings were starting to surface.

      With the Covid still affecting and capable of infecting even the double vaccinated but not as severe, there has to be more tolerance about for those that feel, enough is enough. The science on Covid is is not as solid as first assumed.

      It is the birthday of my partner today and we cannot see each other. It will be 4 months when that might happen.

      Thank you for your views and kind words.

      I started out feeling bewildered by anti-vaxxers and I will always revile violent protest, but I think my self-righteous indignation is running out in the face of relentless lockdown. I feel the deep frustration and a touch of the anger we are seeing on Australian city streets. This is just not at all like ordinary Aussies. Not part of our national psyche.

      Melbourne has the most lockdown days of all cities, but I do think that we’ve forgotten that we also have one of the lowest numbers of Covid deaths.

      If we’ve learned anything it’s that only an idiot government would fail to prepare for the next pandemic. Despite the fact that scientists warned western governments that this was coming – 40 years ago. Michael Lewis’ “Premonition” is an excellent discussion around this topic 😊

        Now the race is on not so much to get the infections down but to get double vaccinated. I already received notification from our local soldiers club (RSL) to get my vaccination passport in order. No entry if not double vaccinated.

        Bur how long before we get the booster? And then what, another log on?

    With bated breath, as they say, you can wait and anticipate the unleashing of your imposed martyrdom. It seems lock down is especially difficult on those individuals who relish conversation with mixing and mingling. Unlike you, I didn’t have a problem when we had no almost no places to go but those times didn’t last long in Texas because we have a Republican governor. Which is the opposite of what Republican means to you in your country.

    Meanwhile my county, McLennan has the highest rate of COVID infections and death rate per 100 or per 1000. No sure how the numbers are based. All ICU beds in both hospitals have been filled and the cardiac unit in the hospital that I prefer was made into a COVID unit. Elective surgeries were put on hold and folks needing emergency services were and still are having very long waits. I find the government amiss and irresponsible for banning mandates to wear a mask. But it what it is and it seems everyone is coping in what ever is their personal best manner.

      Yes, I hear too that the numbers are steadily going up in the Republican States. In Idaho, my American friend in Australia told me they are transporting Covid patients across the border as hospitals are overburdened.
      It is a clash between the life savers and the freedom savers.

      My father told me there is no such thing as absolute freedom.

      The professor epidemiologists and those forecasting the numbers are not public advocators and the Australian Government were not quivering with sensitivity either. It should have been explained outside the politics.

      I see masks littering the streets and even around the lake were I take daily walks. There is betting that those fiberglass masks will end up on beaches and into sea life.

        Yes, Uta. It has become such a macabre spectacle . Each day at about 11am and on the ABC TV, our Premier with an expert doctor and a policeman front up to the camera.

        The tension is at fever pitch. We are told by the Premier the latest number of Covid infections and how many have died, followed by heart felt condolences to the friends and relatives who have ‘passed away’. Then the salient information when those that have passed away are divided in age groups and levels of vaccinations. Each day, we are told most of those lost to the icy embrace of the departed were not vaccinated.

        After that the doctor fronts up and gives medical information with again the urging on of getting vaccinated using the numbers of dead not being vaccinated to add weight to this advice.

        Then a ruddy faced policeman with the numbers of arrests and fines handed out the previous 24 hrs for non- compliance.

        Sydneysiders will not be allowed to travel to regional New South Wales until 80 per cent of the state’s eligible population is fully vaccinated.

        Key points:
        October 11 has been flagged as the date restrictions will start to ease
        Residents from Greater Sydney now including Wollongong, Shellharbour, and the Central Coast will not be allowed to travel to regional areas
        A COVID-19 triage marquee has been erected outside the Wollongong Hospital as local case numbers remain high
        The state government announced the change on Monday, after identifying October 11 as the date the state should have surpassed its 70 per cent vaccination target and restrictions should begin to ease.

        Under the road map out of the lockdown, hospitality venues, retail, theatres, stadiums, gyms and places of worship can reopen on that date but residents from Greater Sydney will not be allowed to take a road trip to the regions for at least another two weeks.

        “For the purpose of regional travel, we have now classified Central Coast, Shellharbour, [Wollongong], Blue Mountains as Greater Metro,” Deputy Premier John Barilaro said.

        “Now I know that sounds confusing, but for the purpose of minimising regional travel initially we don’t want people in the Central Coast or Wollongong and Shellharbour, where there are significant case numbers, travelling into the regions.”

    At least we can now have four people double vaccinated sitting together in parks and public spaces. Boy has that been taken up.

    Hordes of people were running towards the Stumps cricket field here in Bowral this morning, shouting with joy, baskets swinging in gay abandon, folding chairs were being unfolded, wine uncorked with all caution thrown to the wind.

    And this afternoon the same around my lake in Mittagong. Tears of joy flowing freely. The ducks were getting nervous with so many people taking advantage of this new freedom. And they were mainly elderly gasping for social intercourse after being locked in solitary confinement for more than three months.

    I do understand you impatience and frustration, Gerard. BUT, you need only look to my state in America for a fresh perspective. Idaho is filled with “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” independence-minded, science disbelievers. Thanks to their willful behavior in not masking, not distancing, not gathering, not breathing all over each other, our state is now rationing medical care. It sounds like a war zone with medical helicopters coming and going, flying patients from here to there trying to find a facility to care for them. Unfortunately, 100% of the COVID deaths in Boise during the past few weeks were of the unvaxed variety. They are clogging the system. Heaven help the person who has a stroke or heart attack or breach birth.

    In early 2020, nobody–scientists, doctors, epidemiologists, politicians, citizens–could foresee how long this pandemic would last, and how devious the variants would become. Hang in there and be grateful for at least electronic communication, which even 60 years ago, would not have been possible.

      Dear Linda, I read with great interest what you say about what is going on now where you live. It does not sound good. I think some parts in Australia may soon look similar to what Idaho looks like now.
      A lot of ‘unvaxxed’ people here have not been ‘vaxxed’ because they have not had any chance yet to be vaxxed. It seems to me a lot of the very vulnerable have been left to their own devices to find a suitable place for vaccination. Nobody cared to give them any help, and on the other hand they are the ones who have caregivers, that, even if these are fully vaxxed themselves, can give them a little bit of DELTA which might be leading to the clogging of the system!

      Yes, my friend told me about Idaho and its overburdened health system with Delta patients being shunted over state borders. It’s difficult and there are no easy answers. Australians have been generally compliant but with the on and off Lockdowns, resistance to lockdowns is growing, especially amongst those that have no jobs, sleep in cars or are homeless. On my walks I see scores of empty shops with ‘For Lease’ signs on the windows.

      The Lockdowns were not well explained and left to people whose professional lives and incomes would not have come across as very convincing as to the real burden which, as is so often the case, left to those at the lower end of incomes and social levels.

      Let’s hope that for refugees that are languishing on off shore islands year after year in endless detention ( Lockdowns), some of that care might finally be shown too. Let them come to Australia.

But what can we expect from scientists and administrators who are faced with a brand new, and changing by the minute situation over which humans really have very little control? It has been a difficult time, especially for businesses and business owners. In Idaho, our school board trustees (a volunteer, civil service position) are quitting because they face physical violence and threats from parents who disagree with mask/vaccine mandates.

      Linda, indeed humans in general do have really very little control. I cannot influence the decisions our so called leaders come up with from day to day regarding all these restrictions to be able to cope with the spread of the Coronavirus, especially the DELTA variant. It seems, the experts our politicians rely on for advice, are not always of the same opinion. So, we do find it difficult, to accept that all these decisions our leaders come up with, are always the best decisions that could be made. I think it is not right to live as though we can ignore the virus and aim for our life going back to the way it was before the outbreak of the virus.
      I want leaders, that are capable of telling us about all the changes that are necessary permanently and tell us the honest truth about it, so we learn to live with these necessary changes. And they better finally accept, that with the way the DELTA variant is able to spread, no lockdowns are of any use in coping with the virus.
      Our behaviours have to change. To change the way we behave, is of course extremely difficult. But in order to live with the virus, these changes in the way we live and behave, are absolutely necessary. And our leaders better help us in making these changes!
      So, we do need extra funding for hospital treatment and for health care workers, and for making all our buildings air efficient!
      Vaccines do not totally make the virus disappear. So, it is obvious, we cannot just rely on vaccinations to help us in living with the virus!

        I so agree with your opinion abound the need for increased funding for health care workers and retrofitting buildings. I also think it would be sheer hell to be any kind of leader or administrator during this period of not knowing. What we THINK we know about the virus is only that, what we think we know. As epidemiologists continue to study this virus and its behavior, they must constantly tweak and fine tune previous assumptions. This, unfortunately, is how science works. Theories stand until they are proven incorrect or incomplete It’s a process. We have become so used to instant answers that we’ve lost the ability to be patient, to adapt and change. The virus has NOT lost those capabilities and it’s quite determined to adapt and change.

      I had a good day with my daughter and she did too.

      There has to be a weighing up of abiding by rules or abiding by good conscience.
