Daniel Andrews Imploding Act

Former Victorian health minister Jenny Mikakos says it is “implausible” the decision to use private security was a “creeping assumption”, and has urged the hotel quarantine inquiry to “treat with caution” the evidence of Premier Daniel Andrews.

In a submission to the inquiry published on Monday, Ms Mikakos said accepting the use of private security had “insufficient regard to the realities of governmental operation and decision-making.”

“In this regard, it is respectfully submitted that the Board ought to treat with caution the Premier’s evidence where he sought to explain the reference to the use of private security in the Hotel Quarantine Program made by him during his media conference that commenced at 3pm on 27 March 2020,” she said.

“It is submitted that had the decision not already been made by that time, the Premier would not have announced the use of private security in the program.”

Ms Mikakos submitted that the evidence instead actually pointed to a decision being made at some point before a 3pm press conference given by Mr Andrews.

She said it was clear using Australian Defence Force troops was clearly the wish of National Cabinet, and the decision to use private security instead was “inextricably linked”.

I was going to go with the Woman scorned in an aborted post earlier today but decided against it. Dan may live to regret not sacrificing a couple of high ranking public servants on the Covid Alter instead of Ms Mikakos. She is out of a job and after blood I reckon. Gunning for Pakula and Andrews.

Ooh, quick - get her a cushy job on a superannuation board or a health board (like all those Labor seat-warmers do after politics). That'll shut her up.

Doyle you omitted the Labor side - they do it in a much more spectacular fashion. That total failure John Brumby is Chancellor of Latrobe University (no less). Former Labor power-broker Stephen Conroy now shills for the gambling industry FFS.

Labor has their snouts in the trough even deeper than the LNP (if that's even humanly possible).

How dodgy our Governments are In Australia, regardless what colour or side they are.

Australia needs alternative political parties to vote for, not the same old useless Red v Blue (need Orange, Purple, Pink, Brown, etc al with the ability to form Government under a coalition arrangement)

Today's figures according to the YM:

Only about 50% of walkers etc seen in an hour's walk this morning were wearing masks properly. Some no mask, some noses out and some mask around their neck.

Demography of those not wearing masks has widened beyond the usual 'macho' men who are not subject to Australian law and the sacred cow joggers to include quite a number of 'older' people. The young female group declined.
