BIG BROTHER ON LOOKOUT WHILE many defied mask rules during Darwins lockdown this week, those exercising on the Esplanade were kept in line. While out walking, one of Bushies spies heard a CCTV camera switch on, telling joggers an emergency may be under way and to stay put. A friendly voice then came across the speaker. Just a reminder that masks are compulsory under current Covid restrictions. It was followed by a Masks need to cover your mouth and nose Sir. Slightly creepy but it did the job! DID YOU NUMBER TWO? THE American man who brought Covid-19 into the Territory and caused our lockdown was reportedly subject to some intense questioning about his bodily functions. While he was unwilling to admit whether he had been vaccinated, he was cooperative in telling whether he had evacuated. Bushie hears health teams had to ask whether he had gone to the loo in Katherine, because this result would influence wastewater testing findings. We later found out the Ktown sewage came back positive for Covid-19 traces, in case you were wondering. NO RULES IN THE NORTH WHEN Chief Minister Michael Gunner warned hed take action if Nightcliff started to look like Bondi, some chose to take that as a challenge. Bushies spies took photographic evidence of some brave folk of the Peoples Republic of Nightcliff blatantly ignoring the lockdown measures and using the public barbecues along the Foreshore to make themselves a sausage sizzle. DONT CLICK THE LINK TERRITORIANS phones have been inundated with bogus text messages in recent weeks, telling people in extremely poor spelling that Ypu missed a capl from a random number. Bushie would like to advise everyone, dont hit the link. WAS MCCUE LEAVING A CLUE? EYEBROWS were raised after the Northern Territory Police Association waded into the debate about Michael Gunners social media strategy. Some were wondering whether this was NTPA president Paul McCues grand statement of an intention to enter a career in politics. For the record, McCue tells Bushie hes too busy representing the boys in blue to bother, ruling himself out of a tilt. BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: The Darwin Festival committee this week proved it truly knew how to dance. Halted with a three-day lockdown and then tasked with operating under stricter Covid restrictions, the festival managed to pirouette and get the show back on the road. Fantastic effort.
