Australians are celebrating the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s arrival in Australia. Some gov’t servants know better.
Captain Cook was not a disease.
Victorian Deputy Chief Health Officer said what?
A Victorian public health official has likened COVID-19 to Captain Cook’s arrival in Australia.
Deputy Chief Health Officer Dr Annaliese van Diemen tweeted on Wednesday, the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s arrival in Australia.
“Sudden arrival of an invader from another land, decimating populations, creating terror,” she wrote.
But wait, there’s more:
Sky News at 7pm: first the ABC finds an Aboriginal activist who says James Cook shot her grandfather at Botany Bay in 1770,; now SBS finds another activist who says that grandfather was his ancestor, and Cook left a booby trap of dynamite, invented in 1867.
