Sky News host Peta Credlin says the “monumental incompetence” of Victoria’s state Labor government risks sending the entire country backwards. “No one had tougher restrictions in the first place than Victoria,” Ms Credlin said.
“Yet no one has stuffed it up as badly either”. On Monday it was announced the state border between New South Wales and Victoria is to shut in a bid to stem the spread of the deadly virus between states. Overnight Victoria recorded an extra 127 cases of coronavirus and a man in his 90s and a man in his 60s died in hospital after testing positive to COVID-19.
While over the weekend Premier Daniel Andrews placed 3,000 residents in a five-day mandatory lockdown as fears mount over a potential explosive outbreak of the coronavirus in densely populated high-rise buildings in Flemington and North Melbourne. Ms Credlin said Daniel Andrews produces “spin over substance”.
“The fact that Mums and Dads copped fines for fishing, and golf was banned, yet 30,000 activists could march says everything about the Victorian government's lack of focus”. “And the priorities of the police chieftains too”.
