Passengers will need to be vaccinated against Covid-19 to fly with Australia's Qantas, the first major airline to suggest rules that could become common across the industry. Qantas CEO Alan Joyce yesterday said the Australian flag carrier would implement the measure once a coronavirus vaccine was made available to the public. He predicted the rule would become standard practice around the world as governments and airlines consider introducing electronic vaccination passports. Sewage testing on planes, monitoring ankle bracelets and DNA testing are also being considered to keep passengers safe. Joyce said: 'We are looking at changing our terms and conditions

#1, Under Joe Biden U.S. airlines will be among those that require evidence of having received the vaccine. Of course, there will be a thriving black market in bogus vaccine certifications

OK, so if we have proof of being vaccinated to board the aircraft, then no masks required, right? Drinks and peanuts for all, right? I can't hear you.

A group of homeless families is suing the city over the de Blasio administration’s plan to install Wi-Fi in family homeless shelters across New York, arguing the plan won’t get students internet fast enough, the Daily News has learned. The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Federal Court, calls for a judge to force the city to get Wi-Fi in all family shelters across the city no later than Jan. 4, 2021—the first day of school after winter break. “My son still struggles with completing his classes.(Snip) “I’m frustrated that the mayor isn’t doing something faster because my son is suffering,”

Clueless Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday dismissed the fact that the city incredibly failed to pick up on Hasidic wedding attended by thousands amid COVID-19 this month—scoffing to a reporter, “It’s a big city.” De Blasio spouted the tone-deaf brush-off even after he acknowledged just how dangerous the Nov. 8 Brooklyn wedding was by announcing late Monday that the city would slap the involved synagogue with a $15,000 fine for breaking coronavirus safety regulations. In crowing about the fine, de Blasio told NY1 of the dangerous gathering, “That’s just not acceptable, I mean, we’ve been through so much.

New York City—After a string of subway pushes and attacks, the NYPD is sending dozens of police officers back into New York City's transit system. According to the NYPD, 120 officers are being moved back to the transit beat after being moved in the summer to help cover protests across the city. The increase comes after three scary subway shovings in the past week alone. The most frightening attack happened last week when a mother was randomly pushed in front of an oncoming train pulling into the Union Square station and thankfully survived to tell the tale.

David Dinkins, who was elected New York City’s first black mayor in 1989 and famously referred to the nation’s largest metropolis as a “gorgeous mosaic,” died Monday night, sources told The Post. The former mayor passed away due to natural causes at his Upper East Side home at around 9:30 p.m. He was 93 years old. A home health aide had discovered Dinkins was not breathing and called 911, sources said. His death comes a little over a month after his wife, Joyce, died at their home. She was 89.

Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis declared in an article in Foreign Affairs on Monday that the “America First” foreign policy had damaged national security, and called on Joe Biden to “eliminate ‘America first'” from U.S. strategy. Mattis resigned in December 2018, citing policy disagreements with the president, who had just ordered a troop drawdown in Syria. In his resignation letter, Mattis said that the U.S. needed to do more to show “respect” to American allies.(Snip) In his new article, however, Mattis says the opposite, calling for the “end of America First”: The United States today is undermining the foundations of an international order

UK arrivals can spend up to £120 on a private Covid test and slash their quarantine time to just five days under a new Government scheme. From December 15, the 'test to release' plan will allow arrivals from high-risk destinations to get a private coronavirus test after a five-day self-isolation period. If they test negative, they will be free to go about their normal lives more than a week earlier than the current 14-day system allows. Passengers will have to pay for a test from a government-approved private medical firm to avoid putting pressure on NHS resources.

Tens of millions of pounds of our cash is being ploughed into China's vast economy every year–on schemes including opera and rice production. In an unprecedented audit, the Mail has uncovered £81million in aid sent to the world's second largest economy. It exposes how the UK taxpayer is boosting China's prosperity despite the British Government being at loggerheads with Xi Jinping's regime over Beijing's approach to Hong Kong, human rights violations against Uighur Muslims and the controversy surrounding telecoms giant Huawei. In the first day of its investigation into public sector expenditure yesterday, the Mail revealed how £5.6billion is wasted.

If Anthony Fauci made another dramatic plea about COVID and nobody listened, would he really make a sound? Better: If nobody other than the Democrat Party and the liberal lapdog media listened, and clapped like trained seals in response to everything he said? The latter was the case on Wednesday morning when Fauci hooked up with Scooter George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an attempt to scare tens of millions of Americans into “sacrificing” their Thanksgiving in the name of all-things COVID. Stephy lobbed a softball right down the middle of the plate for the attention-whoring emerging and infectious diseases expert, which he promptly hit into the left-field stands.
