I understand completely why you are saying that.
The only thing I agree with regarding Dan the Man is that they have months to improve, yet he is as much part of the problem, maybe more so. Realistically he needs to go and hand the job over to someone else.
Having said that are you absolutely sure it's not just another case of you demanding absolute perfection from the Left side of politics and judging them as having totally failed if your lofty standards aren't met, while ignoring any indiscretions from the other side of the fence, in order to justify your own biases?
Are you absolutely sure that a positive case will never ever escape hotel quarantine in Sydney under Gladys's watch? Ever? Will you be front and centre calling for her to be dropped to the bottom of the harbour if a case gets out?
Yes, mistakes are still being made in Victoria. Yes, sooner or later people should be held accountable. Yes, NSW has been doing far better regarding hotel quarantine. Interestingly though they have only just chalked up 28 days of no community transmission (Victoria achieved that target months ago, and got to 49 days without community transmission a couple of weeks before Christmas). Why are they so far behind? Is it Gladys's fault? Why not? Why not???
No, not at all.
The outbreak in Syd, Adel and Perth were all contained quickly and mostly one offs.
NSW previously screwed up when it came to the Ruby Princess.
Vic achieved those targets by shutting down the state for a month, so lets not get too excited.
Victoria was desperate for the Aus Open to proceed, (which I supported), however they haven't formed an island. Something that has been done successfully for similar major events elsewhere. Abu Dhabi has successfully run a number of "fight island" events with no leakage, its not rocket science.
NSW has moved something like 60% of all returning Australian's, not just those bound for NSW thus increasing their risk of leakage.
The issue with Vic now apart from some poorly timed chest beating by Dan on how good they, until they are not. Its that despite the fact that WA and SA have accepted more returning Australian's than Vic since June last year, each. Dan is now further chest beating saying we need this cold hard discussion to reduce numbers, yet other states have mostly managed far more than Vic, even with the odd glitch. Clearly the problem isn't with the hotels or even the new virus strain, its to do with the leadership in Vic.
There are other labour states in Australia which are achieving similar results as NSW in hotel management.
My view is that all returning Australian's should only go to the state of their residence, thus the state Premiers decisions affect their people and only their people and that states that are forcing excessive delays in people returning to Australia or repeated bumping is fully visible.
