Queensland Premier Palaszczuk is up to her double standards again.
Four children living south of the Queensland border are not being given group access to see their dying father who is hospitalized there.
Actor Tom Hanks can freely come and self quarantine in style, but these children may miss the chance to say good bye to their old man.
We don’t begrudge the Hollywood star’s ability to chill on his own dime, but how low is the contagion risk of young kids living in an area where there are few coronavirus cases? Where is the risk?
AFL stars from the most infected state in the country were given an all expenses paid jolly courtesy of the Queensland taxpayer. Never mind that some got into a 3am brawl outside a strip club. Forget social distancing. Just punish a family coping with the traumatic future that lies ahead by wrapping them in red tape.
Queensland Health responded as follows:
“We understand and sympathise that this a very difficult time and there are challenges. Queensland’s current border restriction are in place for one purpose – to save lives.”
(Except if you’re a celebrity or a footy player).
We thought that Victorian Premier Dan Andrews was heartless. Palaszczuk is vying for that prize.
Aren’t the left wing parties supposed to be the ones that preach human compassion at all costs?
We sincerely hope that the good people of Queensland turf her government at the election next month.
