By Binoy Kampmark, published 13/3/2020

In Japan, toilets for customers are replete with threatening language promising to punish the paper pinchers.

Truly amazing.
We manufacture just about zilch in this country but we manage to make toilet paper.
What have we become and is there an export market for it?

People dealt with two world wars better than they are handling the China virus. In this country, multiculturalism has killed the Australian ethos and we have people fighting in the aisles over toilet paper.

It has been suggested that the virtual shutdown and lack of activity is just what the Green and climate crooks want:

" . it could deliver almost everything the climate alarmists have been asking for, with severe reductions in, or restraints on fossil fuels, air travel, shipping, automobiles, livestock, plastics and in fact the whole spectrum of capitalist and consumerist activity."

I truly cannot understand why the run on toilet paper. There are far more essential items people will need if the virus becomes widespread and we all need to stay home where possible. Paracetamol or Nurufen for a start. Food. Soap to wash hands. Detergent to wash clothes, etc.
The human race managed without toilet paper until recently, when paper became cheap enough to waste wiping your backside.
Mass stupidity is an amazing thing.

From 9 News:

"Woolworths today confirmed it has also taken the extra step of refusing to refund any shopper who may have mass-bought certain items and then felt remorseful after the transaction".

How crazy to think that the morons who are hoarding toilet paper - for no good reason - would then want to return it. And human beings are supposed to be a higher species!

If only it would kill more people it'd be everything the neo-Malthusians wished for.

Oh, and the no refund policy also extends to the baked beans and other tinned rubbish the morons have bought up. And the bottles of water - stuff that has still been running freely from taps at a fraction of the cost. This is a good time for all the Lefties who say that they 'are embarrassed to be Australians' for one reason or another to feel really, really embarrassed.
