It is so on brand for him to act like he's taking a strong stance after pulling out every single stop possible and greasing every palm he could in Serbia and Australia to get to play for #21. But now, sure, he's willing to give up slam titles if that's what has to happen, like he wasn't moving heaven and earth just a month ago to play a single slam.

Definitely keep your comment. All signs are pointing to this being an absolute puff piece.

Fox "news" will likely be offering him a show soon.

Yeah, I didn't think it was fair to criticize the BBC until the full interview was released.

I don't have access to the full interview, but from the clips I saw, it was all puff. They did ask him about the test result being valid but didn't probe into the dates or numbers on the test results being out of order. I also have not seen any follow-up questions about why he was then out in public with kids, etc. I'm sure that was on the list of "non-allowed questions". :roll:

The poor darling. The look of his colleagues, who did get vaccinated and complied with all requirements, and went to Australia well informed of the situation... maybe he can stand in front of them and "throw them his heart" to win them back.
About RyanAir. Ok, that is pretty funny. But why are they getting involved?

It became a meme yesterday, people were mocking him for most of the day for that BS.

Alex de Minuar has apparently done too good of a job of making people think he's nothing but Australian. People are so suspicious of how he ended up at this one place getting investigated in Spain as if he would've had to go very far out of his way to find it. A shame he's found himself in this situation (I'm assuming he's telling the truth).

If it turns out the hospital actually is providing fake vaccination cards, I'm not sure why he would think he actually received a real vaccine dose. I'm just sayin'... He doesn't say anything about a booster, either, but perhaps it's too soon for a booster. I like the kid and will take him at his word. But it's possible he's being a little naive.

Not sure how it works in Spain, but the grand majority of those supplying fake vaccination cards in the US have done so alongside issuing valid ones. That's part of the issue here, people who were thought to be trustworthy healthcare workers abused their positions for a side grift. Think of the case in Long Island recently with the two nurses and the cop husband, they had real vaccine doses and actual authority from the state to administer vaccines and they were doing that and then entering them into the state database. It just so happened they abused their positions.

Maybe it's different in Spain and other countries, but easy to imagine it's exactly the same.

As for Alex specifically, I think what he's really saying is, he went to a licensed place to get a vaccine and he knows that he didn't pay to get a fake vaccine card.
