Last week is a foreign country; they did things differently there. The Financial Review, 29 May:
That’s a lot of authoritarian concern for the welfare and safety of white people.
But the country’s foremost lockdown rigorist – the same Daniel Andrews – today approved a Saturday ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest in Melbourne that’s expected to draw up to 30,000 people to Parliament House. VicPol Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius says nobody will be fined but all those present must “abide by the law” and “take into consideration directions from the Chief Health Officer around social distancing.”
Either the Premier and the CHO have been lying to Victorians about the dangers of coronavirus or they are OK about risking the elderly and the infirm with a COVID-19 spike in the name of George Floyd. Which is it? And given the protest has been organised by Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance (LOL) – which invites Aborigines to attend en masse – will the two men take responsibility for Aboriginal deaths that ensue?
