One thing that Covid has made abundantly clear, for TAFKAS at least, and especially in Victoria, is the people work for the Government and not the other way.
This was clearly demonstrated by the creeping decision that conveniently absolved the Victorian police from performing police work. It was also clearly demonstrated by the 3-4 month Victorian lock down (or is that lock up) that was designed to limit the impost on the public service.
But for the cherry on top, check this little news nugget. Victoria’s Covid testing capacity is constrained because the government does not want to call people back from holidays. Priorities, priorities.
Public servant holidays, pay rises and working conditions will always take priority over the welfare of the people. Particularly in Victoria.
And if the people don’t like it, tough. It’s not as if they can leave the state or country.
By the way, how is Dan Andrews’ Hawaiian holiday going? How dare he not be available 24/7/365 to front the media.
Victorian officials say testing capacity will increase over coming days with staff coming back from leave. They say they believe they’ve got the balance right between allowing staff leave and continuing with testing program.
Media conf up now.
