"As Novak Djokovic stepped on court to train this morning, the superstar remained engulfed in speculation about his future at this year's Australian open. This evening, the immigration minister Alex hawke gave his answer. Today I exercised my power under section one three three C of the migration act to cancel the Visa held by mister Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so. Here with the Djokovic case it's sort of interesting in terms of over the years we've also seen the government giving itself extra power and extra discretion to cancel someone's Visa. If fulfilled one of those aspects of the many hundreds of different grades of categories that might be relevant and you get here. But there are ten licensed provisions as well for visas. And what we saw in the Djokovic case was that greater power for cancellation. That broader discretion also has to be reviewable and in the first instance we saw the court actually saying no, that's not a loss of decision. And ultimately review before the full court. Ultimately, the court held that the legislation did give the government an immense amount of power that was not unlawful to cancel his Visa. Fortress Australia, a travel ban will be placed on all non residents, not Australian citizens coming to Australia. The nation's pulling up the drawbridge to all but direct family members and our kiwi cousins that will be implies from 9 p.m. tomorrow evening. And migrant nation no longer welcoming foreigners, the reason simple the overwhelming proportion of cases in Australia have been imported. One of the perhaps surprising discoveries of the COVID pandemic was that holding an Australian passport or Visa didn't entitle you to come and go as you please. So this is yes, really interesting carrying in terms of the extent of the power under our constitutional system for controlling individuals and including citizens. So I've been talking to you most of the time today about non citizens and the visas that they need to get into the country. What you've asked is also interesting from the purpose of citizens. What are the limitations on citizens rights to travel in and out of the country? So coming into the country, the current framework is that as long as you're a citizen, you don't need a Visa. But COVID showed us that there are different ways that the government can regulate. And in the instance of travel and where you need carriers to follow the end navigation act, they introduced restrictions, not through visas, but rather through limitations on the numbers of people that an airline was allowed to take on board in order to follow the air regulations. And so in that sense, we saw the regulation not through visas, but through other forms of restriction of travel. But the second point that you make is that as a strained citizens, we were blocked from leaving the country. And I think that is quite an extraordinary step by government. When I was a university student, myself, at law school, I remember writing to a fellow who was in Russia, a Jewish fellow who had applied to leave to come to Australia and had been refused and sent off to Siberia and I remember thinking at the time how privileged in many ways we are in a liberal democratic society or not even privileged about the fundamentals of rights system that you're not trapped in your own country. And COVID did show us that in governments have the power to keep you in the country and whether that's appropriate in our people democratic system is another long, I guess, discussion, but in essence, it's a very unusual power. And it applied to both citizens and non citizens. And that is, again, remarkable. You would think as a right of citizenship that you would have the right to both travel in and out of the country, but those things are definitely not clear in our constitutional structure. I think that what's happened with COVID over the last two, three years. Now, is that it's a reminder to us of the existence of international borders. I think many people have a certain class and a certain privilege have got used to traveling easily across borders. You know, they carry their passports with the visas at electronic. You go into Europe now and you're not getting stamped every time you cross a border. So again, if you're of a certain privileged part of the population, there was until 2020. It was very easy to travel and really not think too much about the border. And I think what the pandemic has reminded us is the international borders exist and there are laws and there are technologies that allow governments to enforce the movement across borders and make those land borders into what we could think of as paper walls if not actually physical walls.

"Novak Djokovic leaves Australia after losing deportation appeal by The Associated Press, Melbourne, Australia. Novak Djokovic left Australia on Sunday evening after losing his final bid to avoid deportation and play in the Australian open, despite being unvaccinated for COVID-19, a court earlier unanimously dismissed the number one ranked tennis players challenge to cancel his Visa. Djokovic a 34 year old from Serbia, said he was extremely disappointed by the ruling but respected it. Amassed Djokovic was photographed in a Melbourne airport lounge with two government officials in black uniforms. He left on an Emirates flight to Dubai, the same United Arab Emirates city he flew to Australia from. He has won a record 9 Australian open titles, including three in a row, but this time, won't even get the chance to try. I respect the court's ruling, and I will cooperate with the relevant authorities in relation to my departure from the country. He said in a statement. Djokovic said he was uncomfortable that the focus had been on him since his Visa was first canceled on arrival at Melbourne's airport on January 6th. I hope that we can all now focus on the game and tournament I love, he said. The national federation that runs the tournament, tennis Australia said it respects the decision of the federal court. We look forward to a competitive and exciting Australian open 2022 and wish all players the best of luck. It said in a statement. A deportation order also usually includes a three year ban on returning to Australia. In Serbia, president Alexander vucic said the hearing was a farce with a lot of lies. They think that they humiliated Djokovic with this ten day harassment, and they actually humiliated themselves. If you said that the one who was not vaccinated has no right to enter, Novak would not come or would be vaccinated, vucic told reporters. He said he told Djokovic after talking to him that we can't wait to see him in Serbia to return to his country to come where he is always welcome. He did not say whether Djokovic said he would first go to Serbia after his deportation. Chief justice James allsopp said the ruling came down to whether the minister's decision was irrational, or legally unreasonable. Australian minister Alex hawke welcomed the decision, his office did not immediately provide detail on how or when Djokovic would leave..

"Novak Djokovic is out of the Australian open and out of the country after a court rejected his appeal against the removal of his Visa. The world number one tennis player was seen boarding a flight to Dubai just a few hours after being told that he didn't have the ground to dispute the immigration minister Alex hawke's deportation order. A monocle 24 sports correspondent kiran Penn joins me now. Good morning. Good afternoon. Hi, hey, Yang. Very well. Thank you. Better than Novak Djokovic, everything happened very quickly yesterday, didn't it? Yeah, it's been a whirlwind weekend, really, for Australian tennis fans and the Novak Djokovic. So you may recall last week in Australian court temporarily released Novak Djokovic from immigration detention in Australia, finding the process by which his Visa had been canceled was improper. A few days later, late Friday afternoon, Australian time, the minister re canceled Novak's Visa on sort of special what had been described as God like powers, where the minister can do effectively whatever he wants as long as he thinks it's in the public interest within a few hours, Novak had filed it. Now the case in the federal court this time, it was heard by a bench of three judges of the federal court on Sunday within a few hours, the federal court came back unanimously and said that his case had failed and therefore he would be deported immediately. Was this the right ending reached the wrong way? I mean, you mentioned the issue of God like powers there. It's not something many governments have tend to try to resort to. No, this has been a really interesting and troubling intersection of anti vaccine sentiment and politics in Australia with Australia's immigration policy, which has a long and fairly tortured history of harsh measures towards refugees with a global tennis star indeed the world number one could not be in the middle of it. Now, in some respects, if Novak Djokovic had got vaccinated, none of this would have been an issue and he could have come and pied and defended his title or instead. He didn't. And therefore, he ended up in situation where he wasn't properly entitled to enter the country, stilled it anyway, but there was some technicality that allowed him to stay temporarily and then it became such a politicized issue that in certainly in part distract from other issues, particularly a failure and related to the lightest COVID wave, the federal government here canceled his Visa again. So I think many Australians are not unhappy that he's been sent packing Australia has a very high vaccination rate has gone through a lot of sacrifices in the last 18 months or lockdowns, et cetera. And so there's not a lot of sympathy other than in a small fringe towards people who are not vaccinated. Certainly the opinion polling released on Sunday suggested 7 year 80% of Australians thought the right thing to do was for the tennis player to be sent home. But it does raise broader questions about the inappropriateness of such sweeping powers by Australian ministers and also a broader issue about our international sporting events of which Australia plays host to many the F one, the Women's World Cup next year football, the cycling world championships later this year the women's basketball World Cup lighted this year as well. And how that sits with immigration decisions that are being made effectively for political reasons rather than for sound health reasons. It's a point that's a very good point, you make, isn't it? Because no one's going to win the Australian open this year without the ghost of Novak Djokovic on court. Exactly. And in fact, right now he's compatriot me and me take a moment which is one set up against Salvatore Caruso, the Italian who was a last minute substitute. So yeah, the Australian open had been holding the draw and the fixtures close to their chest and then finally yesterday afternoon before the decision was made that realized it was too late and they had to release the timings for today and so they did and Novak was scheduled to be on one of the main courts this afternoon. Obviously, as soon as the court decision came down, that was changed and the Italian Caruso was subbed in for Djokovic. Unfortunately, for him and the Serbian kicker milovich, they were booted off center court and to a lesser court without the star power of Djokovic playing, but it will be interesting. And I guess now that Djokovic has left at least a tennis can take center stage, many of the players have been asked for their opinion on the song. There's not a lot of love for Djokovic among the fellow tennis players on circuit. Some players have ducked the question. Naomi Osaka said I was asked and she said, well, what good does my opinion matter and so I declined to answer that. Whereas others have been fairly firm that if they've been vaccinated, none of these would have been an issue and the circus is really detracted from the tournament. So in a way, this does take away a bit from what is traditionally a very welcome start to the annual tennis calendar. The Australian open otherwise very well liked and regarded and enjoyed tennis festival for the traveling international tennis. Circuit that certainly going ahead starting today and the cloud of node Djokovic. What does it do briefly Karen for relations between Australia and Serbia? The Serbian president is accused the Australian officials of lying. Novak Djokovic, Novak Djokovic's father has gone absolutely. Well, he's made his feelings very strongly felt on the Internet. It has caused a big diplomatic problem there, hasn't it? It's caused a huge rift. I think initially there were very stern words being spoken by senior members of the Serbian political elite at some of those members in particular the Soviet prime minister in recent days tried to walk back some of that rhetoric and hasn't been as fierce. But certainly, this will take some healing and it comes at a time when Australia has recently blown up its relationships with France over the orcas submarine deal tearing up a multi-billion dollar submarine deal with France to go with the U.S. and the UK. So Australia's diplomats having a busy time trying to men bridges in both Belgrade and in Paris. But I suspect this won't be the last time that vaccination status becomes an issue. The U.S. open coming up in a few months time. The U.S. currently has the same vaccination policy for travelers as Australia does. So unless Novak Djokovic gets vaccinated between now and the U.S. open, he'll have the same issue there. And really cast into doubt his one Grand Slam away from becoming the best tennis player ever mild inspired ever. Whether that ever comes to fruition now is in doubt. Kevin panda, thank you so much for joining us on the line from Australia. The time is 7 29 here in London, a quick summary now of some of the other.

"And it is midday. Solly whole time where we find David law and all of us have spent our spend our evenings slash morning, watching the work, the live stream of the Australian federal court and family federal circuit and family court of Australia. Which is not entertainment that I can highly recommend. But it has led us here to bring you news of the developments in the saga of Novak Djokovic. We had the news around about 6 p.m. tonight, which I'm sure is already extremely old news by the time that you're listening to this. We've kind of accepted the fact that whatever time we record these podcasts that they will be out of date to a certain extent by the time you listen to them, we're doing our very best to keep up with events and keep you up to date as well. But things are so fast moving. That there is a limit on what we can do. Look, we had the news at 6 p.m. Friday evening Melbourne time that immigration minister Alex hawke, who was suggested to me as a follow on Twitter today. Which I politely declined. I really feel like Alex hawks roll in my life is probably going to be over after this week. Sure hope so. Yeah, it'll be a tennis podcast 2022 quiz question. Who is Alex Paul? And you would think that being in Melbourne, we would be perfectly positioned and able to ready to receive the news of Novak Djokovic having his Visa canceled again. We could not have been less ready. We were on the pavement walking up a hill with very heavy shopping bags in the baking son. Complaining about the heat. I've contemplating ordering an Uber to take us about 6 blocks, which folks is what we ended up doing. So it's 6 p.m. Matt and I have sweating on a pavement. And we received the news, the immigration minister, Alex hawk, who I have decided not to follow on Twitter. Had made the decision to cancel Novak Djokovic's Visa quote on health and good order grounds on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so. Prime minister Scott Morrison followed up with a statement. He said Australians have made a lot of sacrifices during this pandemic and they rightly expect the result of those sacrifices to be protected. This is what the minister is doing in taking this action today. The timeline around that announcement and this is courtesy of Andrew Brown of the Australian Associated Press was at 5 35 p.m., Novak Djokovic's legal team was verbally told of the decision. At 5 52 p.m., the statement from Alex hawke's office on the Visa cancellation was released and at 6 O 3 p.m., the legal team were given the decision in writing. And all of the other notes I have made on this are already out of date because I made them a couple of hours ago, which was before the latest hearing between judge Kelly, who I'm sure will be suggested to me as a Twitter follow very soon. Novak Djokovic is legal team and the Australian government's legal team or the Australian border forces legal team or Australia officials minister officials of Australia and that hearing was to try and schedule to try and lodge and scheduled an appeal. And we understand after sitting and wading through two hours of pretty tedious legal charge jargon. We understand that the outcome is that Novak Djokovic will not be taken into detention tonight at 8 a.m. he will spend the morning with his lawyers before reporting for an interview with the Australian border force. And he will be taken into detention a detention hotel like he was in up until a couple of days ago, he will be taken back to one of those until Sunday when he will his appeal will be heard in the federal court. So this has been heard in the federal circuit court and the next hearing will be heard in the federal federal court, which is the next level of court. This is the legal podcast. We hope you're enjoying it. Yeah, look, obviously, we're pretty shaky grounds when it comes to talking about the legal stuff. But basically, as we come to you, the situation is that Novak Djokovic is Visa has been canceled. He's appealing that decision. And the appeal will be heard on Sunday before the start of the Australian open. There are a number of possible scenarios. There are a number of possible implications this could have on the draw for the Australian open. I mean, we could be in a situation where the world number one, the 9 time champion, the defending champion, is deported from the country mid tournament. I mean, does anybody hands up here Matt and David want to try and summarize what a wild, wild world? We are living in right now. Well, we bumped into Christopher clary today of The New York Times and he reminded us because I feel like we need reminding of the last Grand Slam which happened, which was the U.S. open and all of the positive vibes that were around that tournament. And the feel good stories that tennis provided. And let's not forget, Novak Djokovic himself was a big part of that on finals night and the reception he received. That was a big story at that tournament. This, the next Grand Slam could not be more different. I mean, I don't think anyone is okay, some people are but the tennis just feels so secondary at the moment. I mean, it's not really, it's not really part of the conversation around the Australian open, the tennis that's going to be happening. It is all about Novak Djokovic and.

Philip glam and Bloomberg daybreak Europe News 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quick take powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries am Leanne guerins This is Bloomberg Danny Yeah thank you very much Now let's turn to here in the UK and is a sense of normality creeping back in earlier this week the government suggested the coronavirus pandemic is becoming endemic And the times reports today that health secretary Sajid javid has decided to abandon COVID passes this month They cite an identify unidentified government source Joining us now is Tim Loeb Bloomberg's European healthcare and consumer reporter Tim is this an assumption that the UK at some point in the future is going to reach this endemic phase or are we there now That's the $1 million question And a lot of countries are starting to pose this more and more The UK is probably on the leading edge of the path towards endemic based on high vaccination rates and high levels of infections that have already occurred in the last couple of years So everyone knows the pandemic phase will not last forever And certain countries will probably end sooner based on the level of population immunity and since last summer with freedom day and everything the UK has been more aggressive than a lot of European countries and trying to get back to that sense of the old normality So you're seeing with the cases starting to come down in the UK hospitalizations and deaths are not at all like they were last winter in more alpha phase of the pandemic even last summer with Delta So whether it's a little hard to see in the moment whether we're already there but everyone's positioning themselves and hoping I guess kind of the complicated thing in assessing the UK picture is it's hard to escape the politics of this Boris Johnson of course under immense pressure for his activities in the first lockdown a lot of pressure from other Tory party members to make sure that we don't have more restrictions How do we look at the data in terms of whether this is being driven by the science or the politics Yes that's a great question In terms of the data a lot of the numbers we've been monitoring for a couple of years now are still relevant When you consider the daily infection rate and the hospitalization rate and fatality rates those are three key metrics And from that you're already seeing the hospitalizations in the debts way lower than before despite the higher numbers from the infection So there's certainly reason to be feeling bullish about this on the data side That said I think a lot of health officials the WHO and a lot of public health officials are urging huge caution here They hear the conversation going on politically and in society where people are feeling kind of done with this whole pandemic and ready to move on And they're kind of warning that red flag saying hey this virus has surprised us repeatedly over the last couple of years We do not know what sort of variants might emerge next There still is a high level of infections and there's still our lot of people who are ending up in the hospital Perhaps not as serious in general than in the past And it'd be premature to say that we have left the pandemic phase especially right now in the heart of a winter Tim really quickly here we don't have too much time left but we've seen diverging policies also in Europe and vaccines How is that shaking out Yes One of the factors here is the epidemiology in terms of country by country the picture can be different There's also the fact that different countries have different levels of vulnerability in their populations And also politically countries have been willing.

"In, but deportation decision looms. Ash bharti lands in the same quarter as Naomi Osaka, and Andy Murray makes the semis in Sydney. Kim, today is the 13th of January and we are here to catch up on the Australian open drawers. They are here, we can talk about the Novak Djokovic is in for now. We'll see how that develops, but how are you doing at the moment? I'm okay, Joel, I'm just waiting on not tend to, because that's bit dramatic, but I'm just waiting checking Twitter all the time pretty news. I'm waiting for the alert to come up on my phone. I genuinely thought I was going to wake up this morning. Look at my phone and there'd be a BBC breaking news bulletin around what the situation is with Novak Djokovic. I did see a funny thing on Twitter, which was one of those the year 2050 and we're still waiting for Alex hawke to make his decision on the Novak's Visa. It does feel I kind of feel though with each passing day, it becomes less likely that it's going to be revoked because you know he's in the drawer. He's been trading tournament's going to start on Monday. It's going to be a bit weird if he does suddenly depart because that draw is going to be blown wide open at the top and have knock on knock on effects. But I feel like it's probably, I don't know, unlikely. Although, you know, there have been developments with regards to the timeline of events in December surrounding that positive test result, which is Novak has had to kind of come out with a statement to explain his actions. What do you make of everything that's kind of gone down since we last spoke? Yeah. He's owned up to that being COVID positive, having that lakeith interview whilst knowingly it seems having a positive COVID test, which is obviously not a good look. I mean, it's a good thing in a sense that he is kind of fessed up to it. And admitted, actually, that was an error in judgment. But it still feels like there's a lot of stories to unravel here, it sounds like we've got kind of the Serbia now getting involved around his activities there. He was obviously photographed in Spain and there's talk around there around, you know, should he have been allowed into the country and obviously we've got the ongoing stuff in Australia so it feels like it's not just Novak Djokovic versus Australia. It's Novak Djokovic versus Australia. It's Novak Djokovic versus Spain. It's Novak Djokovic versus Serbia. It's just Novak Djokovic versus the world. He probably feels like at the moment. And I guess the most pressing issue is is Australia. Will he be able to play in Melbourne? I think everyone is kind of surprised. It's got to this point, and we still don't know. I mean, we I'm assuming we're going to be hearing a decision by the end of the working week in Australia on Friday from Alex hawke. I don't know if he's he wanted to see the draw first before making a decision. But yeah, we still don't know. And if nothing has changed, for Novak Djokovic, that means just getting on with his business and trying to prepare for a tournament in prepare to win another grandstand because that will be the top thing on his agenda and if that statement does come out and it says sorry Novak, we're going to deport you, you can not play, it will be interesting to see what his response is because the impression we get is that he's going to launch an appeal. So again, I don't know if time length comes into it with that happen over the weekend. Could he play for a little bit? And then the announcement from that appeal comes in. There's still so many different ramifications that potentially could play out. Yeah, and I do feel like tennis Australia will be really hoping that there is nothing like that where someone's participation in the tournament is in question even after it's begun. And they probably just want this whole scandal to end. But you know, it is partly they're doing and you have to accept these things if you're going to have somewhat dodgy activities and you know it's come to light now and he's got to answer for it. I mean, I still think he came out and said that he did that PCR test because although he'd done a rapid lateral flow test, which was negative and he felt fine because he'd been at a basketball game where a lot of people tested positive. He was being extra extra safe to have the actual PCR test, which in my mind, if you're being extra safe, that shows that you're quite cautious around COVID, in which case you wouldn't go about your business and attend various events whilst you're waiting for the result of that test. So I feel his explanation was very much at odds with regarding those particular characters and behaviors. And we also I think come to have known Novak Djokovic as someone who embodies being an absolute kind of physical specimen, you know, we know he's a guy who's very athletic, you know, takes care of his body. And he's had very much about his wellness and food and diet and all of those sorts of things. And despite that, you know, as I said, he's made these judgments that feel at odds with I feel like his philosophy on life in terms of taking care and protecting my body. You know, if he was kind of going through, I think, with that philosophy that I think he has embodied through his career and we've seen that on a tennis court, given the matches the exertions that he's put his body through and one, you'd feel like if he was showing that kind of philosophy, he would have said right. I've tested positive..

"Well, folks, it is 5 p.m. UK time on Monday evening. And as we come to myself, David and Matt, Novak Djokovic, the world number one and defending Australian open champion is a free man. More on that. In a moment, first of all, a quick thank you to Amy. Who heard that in our intro, Amy hell felt? I think I've said that, right? And she has also submitted the supplementary photo of her lovely dog clancy, which is not mandatory for people doing intros, but it is heavily encouraged if you do have a very cute dog clancy has a very Billie Jean esque vibe about her, so I very much appreciate that. So thank you, Amy. Back to the matter at hand, which eventually will be actual tennis. We will I promise talk about actual tennis at some stage on this podcast, but we do have to start with Novak Djokovic and the saga. I know saga isn't a big enough word, but for the moment we'll call it a saga, as I say, as we come to you now he is a free man. It is obviously overnight in Melbourne. We understand that the immigration minister Alex hawke has confirmed he is considering still canceling Novak Djokovic's Visa. He didn't do that on Monday evening Melbourne time following the court hearing where Novak Djokovic and his lawyers were successful in overturning the decision to deport him that was made mid last week. But the immigration minister does still hold the power to cancel his Visa as we come to you, Novak Djokovic has hit at Melbourne park. He's posted a picture of himself hitting with his team, I think on the Margaret court arena. We've had a pretty banana press conference from the Djokovic family which we were told that Djokovic was going to appear at via video link we didn't actually hear from Djokovic himself. So what we've had is social media posts from him. Hey, this podcast could be out of date by the time you're listening to it quite frankly. But we're doing our best to keep up with events and keep you up to date. I'm sure I've missed out loads there, David, because the drama has just come so thick and fast over the past few days. Yeah. Trying to find the right time. The right day and the right time of day to record these podcasts is really challenging because we have to actually edit it and put it up and all the rest of it. And as you say, things just get overtaken so quickly. The hearing started 11 p.m. last night our time. And I decided to go to bed. And when I woke up at about 5 30 a.m., it was still nowhere near finished and a little insight into the lives and careers of people who do a different sort of reporting role from court hearings and all sorts of other things that, frankly, we don't have to do most of the time. It's just a tennis match. Might go on for 5 hours and you've got lots to talk about and then it's all very exciting. Thank goodness because court hearings it turns out are extremely boring. Yeah, I was very happy to just rely on a few tweets to bring me up to date this morning and then throughout the morning when eventually and quite suddenly it seemed to me the verdict came through that the judge and he'd said during what more could this man have done were a couple of his really strong words. And he pretty quickly brought the whole thing to a close. Procedurally, he just wasn't satisfied that things had been handled right. I believe, although other issues were discussed at the hearing, you know, when Novak Djokovic tested positive for COVID-19 circumstances surrounding that, the documentation will come on come on to all of that. But I understand and this is from Karen Sweeney from the Australian Associated Press, one of a few journalists and reporters in Australia, including Paul sakal for the age as well. They've been doing just a fantastic job of reporting this extremely fast moving story. I think she was glued to her desk for 14 hours yesterday. She reported that it was a procedural error by the border force that actually ended up being an issue in that proceeding. Novak Djokovic was told at 5 20 a.m. on the night that he was detained at the border that he could have until 8 30 a.m. to respond to what was being put to him. And it's 6 14 a.m., he was asked for his comment at 7 29 a.m. the decision was made to cancel his Visa he was told of that decision at 7 42 a.m. judge Kelly in the hearing on Monday said that if Djokovic had been given until 8 30 a.m. he could have consulted others about the decision and crucially people like tennis Australia, for example, who are heavily implicated, of course, in the whole situation. So as much as there is so much more to this case than that procedural error, as is so often the case in legal proceedings, it has come down to that procedural error. Now what will be being debated by Alex hawke, the immigration minister will be nothing to do with that. It'll be the validity of Novak Djokovic's claim to this exemption and Matt, oh my goodness me it doesn't feel like that long ago that you and I recorded that emergency podcast with Simon and yet we know so much more now than we did at the time of recording. I look back on the young freshly hatched baby chicks that we were at the time of recording and how naive we were, how little in fact we did know. Yeah, well, I think crucially, we have had confirmation for the first time via the transcript, which was released between Novak Djokovic and the border control. Novak Djokovic saying in his own words, I am not vaccinated. I mean, we were pretty sure that was the case, and obviously had his medical exemption, so we so we knew that. But that was the first time I think we've seen Jakob say that. And of course there are all sorts of questions which remain, which aren't actually to do with the hearing necessarily, but they remain photographic to aunt so I believe over the coming days about his positive test, which we found out he had a PCR positive test on the 16th of December. Those then lots of posts on social media of him making public engagements on the 17th of December and also a photo shoot, I believe, with a keep on the 18th of December a couple of days later. So while he would have been positive for COVID-19, that has not been explained what he was doing at those events..

Whatever it is on compassionate grounds. That could be allowed to stay boss. It's worth noting that even if they are they would go onto temporary. These is not a permanent resettlement because anyone who came by both nearly a decade ago in twenty twelve twenty thirteen. they're on temporary. Protection visas is more than eighteen thousand of them. Now in fact would join this cohort sometimes called the legacy caseload But you could also call them the forgotten caseload of people who just do not have permanency in australia. Yeah these are the famous tapie vs that we. Sometimes he referred to how how temporaries temporary. So there's two different these refugees that came by boat. Once the temporary protection these runs for threes. And then you can reapply. You can work. You can send your kids to school. You can get medicare benefits and so on. Do things like a family reunion. Bring your parents to australia. You can't access hicks. If you wanna go to university you have to pay the international student fee. So there are some restrictions on these temporary protection visa holders. But only it's that having to reapply. Every three years. Not being able to essentially called australia permanent home. The second visa is a similar one. It's called the safe haven enterprise visa. It runs a little longer five years. You have to spend most of that tondo in a regional area which obviously this family would would be doing in bula fit again. Same sort of thing you have to cape reapply cape ray. Applying this just no no certainty about how permanent you'll stay in. Australia is okay so there are eighteen thousand refugees on tape as currently this has proved to be exceptional in a few k. Wise though you know causing a public political split in the coalition bang a totally unique but unusual case for intervention on the part of the immigration minister. Alex hawke why would it not be another exception in the sense that you know. Maybe they have a permanent protection visa. I think it would be very difficult argument for well really of politics to say that a family who's not been found to be deserving of refugee status should get a permanent visa when thousands and thousands of those who have been found to be genuine. Refugees are only given temporary visas. I think that would be a very hot argument to mount so that then rises the point is to do we shift all of those eighteen thousand also on temporary refugee visas into some permanent these situation and live got rid of temporary protection visas when they were lost in pow. Kevin rudd did that. Tiny brought them back and Since then is arguing they should still be scrapped. After the last election though library decided to review its position on this. It does seem likely they'll still go to the next election promising to abolish. these temporary. visas is once again and move all of those on this teepee vs onto a permanent refugee standing and we know that because anthony albanese e the bible later is said as much the labor conference. Is that right. Conference passed unanimously platform. Position which said why would abolish. Tv's and returned to permanent refugee visas. Anthony albanese he's been a bit careful in his language. He hasn't announced this as policy yet. But it seems very clear certainly based on my conversations this way they hating. It's a political risk though. It's worth noting labor. It does give an opening for the coalition to again wage labor on this issue border protection and we know scott morrison. He's the guy who has a trophy and he's office about stopping the would be absolutely up to again accused labour of wanting to weaken border protection. All right well. It seems like they're on a collision course. Then if you've got the coalition not looking like they're going to budgen liable looking all but certain to take the scrapping of tape as to the next election we be expecting it to be important policy battleground. It's a it's a policy battleground. That libraries lost tom in a game whether it was scott morrison before he malcolm term will before him tony. Abbott belted labor over this issue of border protection and asylum seekers fees election after election. Now the unknown is whether the public sympathy around the plot of this particular family. That's just been removed from christmas island with that. Public sympathy extends now into a abroad shift on refugees and asylum-seekers more generally interview that these temporary protection arrangements inaugu that we should give refugees often iliad decade in australia permanency now as a site. That's really unclear whether there has been widespread. The morrison government clearly does not think that's happened. Yes they might have been embarrassed. The modest looked heartless in relation to these particular family. But i think there's still on very solid ground when it comes to the broader policy position on border protection. Yeah i mean you've been watching this debate. Play out for quite a while. David and you know you've watched the needle of public sentiment as it's moved on this. Does this time struck us any different from the others. Look no in one sense whenever we see a face and an identity in particularly young vulnerable kids attached to an issue around the way we treat a solemn seekers. It's not unusual that you see this emotional outpouring this public outrage these anger and in many ways guilt strivers. Doing this touch should touch australians. I think the crazy these have gone by. It's been two years since they've guys biggest families in stuck in detention. Yeah here we are going to support. You got strength and look after two kicks. I think the fact that Petition got over half a million signatures in the course of a week. The fact that all across the country there have been demonstrations vigils people writing endless nights to the family at the perth hospital. Apparently they were just inundated with flowers and presents for tanaka's four fifth day. We saw that when it was kids in detention during the how'd years as well but once that is dealt with in a way by the government and they will be able to argue that at least.
