It’s Sunday morning, and I do believe we’re ready for an update. Those of you who’ve been paying attention will be able to say this along with me – it’s an even 1,000 days (or 2 years, 8 months, 3 weeks + 4 days) until the next election. I may have lost a day but I’m pretty sure we’re now 113 days out from ANF’s first FWA application – it took Mr Brumby 6 days to agree to consent arbitration, which then-opposition leader Ted Baillieu criticised as taking too long.

Hospitals where nurses have taken their own damn selves out: 15

Hospitals whose nurses have refrained from going out despite really wanting to: the rest of the public system

Nurses who are well and truly fed up with this government’s mulish refusal to agree to an independent umpire and end this damn thing already: all of us

Nurses who are tired: zero!
