Polls count

Polls can notoriously be inaccurate but when I heard today that 70 percent of Australians did not think world champion tennis player Djokovic should remain in Australia to play in the Australian Open tennis tournament, I added 10 percent not sure and 20 percent thinking he should stay and play.

Of course our judiciary is independent but when you have a figure like a 70 percent vote to deport him, it was fairly clear what would happen.

At 22.30 Sunday night there is a flight to Dubai and it seems like Djokovic will be on the that plane, deported and has to pay government legal costs. If the usual visa breach ban applies, see you in three years you tosser, if you must visit here again.

  1. All his bags are packed, he's ready to go
    He's standing there at the aircraft door...
    He's leaving on a jet plane
    Don't know if he'll be back again
    Oh Novak, it's time for you to go!

    3. That works YP, as I sing silently.

      Very good Cro. with the emphasis on prick.

  3. He is gone. And now I am itching to see the results of another poll due this year.

    1. PS: While I am not unhappy with the outcome, I was blown away to note that part of the Fed's reasoning was that he encouraged anti-vaxxers. When members of the coalition did it was put down to free speech.

    2. EC, I don't like the method, that is the reasons he was removed. It should have been so simple, no vaccination, no entry.

  4. I'm just fed up with seeing him on the news and in the papers.

    1. Probably not for a while now he is home, River.

  5. They DO count. The world was pretty much against him, I think. (And rightly so.)

    1. Steve, he has certainly never set out to be a public favourite, and has succeeded in that very well.
