Saw this a few mins ago in my feed.
Actually I wont blame Dan 100%, it started off with Jeff Kennett and Kerry Packer with their obnoxious development of the Crown Casino and South Bank, it spread from there, chasing the ASIAN $.
I'm sure the Queensland state election coming up on Oct 31st had nothing to do with Annastacia's decision . I dont follow QLD politics but I didnt think she was very popular before COVID.
Closed borders are an anathema to ant free country. Quarantine maybe , but closing no. And prevention of leaving the country, wtf has happened to Australia?
All businesses shut now except supermarkets, post office, bottle shops (of course will be riots if we cannot buy beer), only one person allowed out of home at one time, max 5km from home, curfew at 8pm. Even to go to supermarket, 2 people cannot go together, only one person nominated from each family.
Places like Bunnings hardware stores are shut now, but they still offer click and collect pick up services. Jims mowing are arguing that they are an essential service (everyone needs their lawns mowed) and the boss has told his staff if they get fined for working he will personally pay their fines.
Sadly, Victorians are not following the rules. Police door knocked on 3000 people who are suppose to be under 14 day self isolation yesterday, 800 of them were not at home. They got AU$5000 fines.
But looking at twitter and some other info, seems its not that bad down there, not sure what to believe lol
