Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he is hopeful border restrictions between Victoria and NSW can be eased soon, with both states appearing to be well on top of their COVID-19 outbreaks.
The Prime Minister said he had spoken to Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews on Monday night “to see if we can get a better pathway for Victorians home as soon as possible”.
The Prime Minister is “hopeful”. Now that is leadership.
Australia is either a federation or not (and TAFKAS contends that the Federation has long been broken).
If the States are to exercise their State’s rights and close their borders, the other states should not have to financially underwrite that decision.
End this charade now. Let the Feds keep the GST to fund essential federal functions – which don’t include health and education but do include borders and defence – and let give the states income tax powers back.
Just end this charade. Maybe the Prime Minister can hope on that also.
