791 Flags over Victoria

791 people have died of COVID-19 in Victoria’s second wave of the virus.

Consider this number for a moment. Don’t think of overseas death tolls; try to think of how many people you know in your day to day.

Victoria’s Liberal and Nationals leaders — respectively, Michael O’Brien and Peter Walsh — held a press conference with unusual props: 791 Australian flags, to represent these deaths.

The stunt, which leveraged these deaths over Premier Daniel Andrews for political points, foreshadowed a vote of no confidence in the state parliament.

Nikki and Caroline look at the failed motion on the sophomore episode of Not the News.

Elsewhere in the episode, the ladies talk Loch Ness monster, Disney Channel drug mules, and those days when you can’t stand your colleagues.
