Novak Djokovic has been deported from Australia as Judges have rejected a challenge by the unvaccinated tennis star after the government cancelled his visa on health and good order grounds.

I would have thought it might have been better had he been deported for lying about his Covid status when seen out allegedly after having caught Covid, for lying about his travel destinations prior to flying to Australia and generally being an arrogant so and so.

No matter why, he has been deported for not complying with regulations for entry to the country, a lesson he might learn with regard to the forthcoming American tennis tournaments where non-US citizens must be fully vaccinated to travel to the country, with only limited exceptions.

Bravo to the Australians for sticking to their principals.

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase.

    Well, that’s a couple of wasted weeks he’ll never get back!

    Do you know what happens when a people follow regulations without question? Dictatorships.

    • I think you’ll find the vast majority of people who are following the regulations have assessed the available information and believe that following the vaccination suggestions and the other rules will give those of us who follow the guidance a better chance of beating Covid and perhaps if everyone did we would manage to eliminate it altogether.
