The success of our tackling the pandemic from day 1 was down to the State Premiers, all of them, while the Federal government played politics. The vaccine rollout was the Federal government’s responsibility and they have failed miserably. Now Covid has raised its ugly head again and things look grim. But very little is coming out of Canberra. Scott Morrison, Josh Frydenberg and Greg Hunt were very vocal in their criticism of Victoria during the big lockdown and at the same time praising New South Wales’s gold standard. But now that New South Wales is in the hotseat, their silence is deafening. We deserve better than this. Canberra shouldn’t be playing politics with human lives.
