The election is two years from now by which time the lockdowns will probably be over so it hardly matters. It would have been interesting to have asked if anyone knew who the Leader of the Opposition is. We’ll see what happens in Queensland first.
AND LET ME ADD THIS: This is the first line of the front page story in The Age which they don’t appear to find concerning:
Premier Daniel Andrews says his COVID-19 curfew policy is about human lives and not human rights.
What a complete fool he is, without an ounce of self-reflection. As far as human lives go, he has been absolutely THE WORST PREMIER in Australia. More deaths in Victoria than in the rest of the country by far – 716 out of the Australian total of 803. But more importantly, he is straight up in stating that he knows he is trampling on our human rights, our freedoms and our abilities to run our own lives in our own way. He is everything his critics say he is. The irony in this story is quite over his head, of course:
An immense police presence, bad weather and confusion over the location of a series of planned anti-lockdown protests across Melbourne has resulted in crowd sizes falling significantly short of organisers’ expectations.
As Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews described protesters as “selfish and unlawful”, at least four participants at one of the planned protests were led away by police officers on Saturday in handcuffs.
The right to protest etc etc etc. If it weren’t so tragic it would be funny:
“I have said many times this week and I will make the point again because I think it is an important one, data trumps modelling every time. Actual numbers,’’ he said.
