How can anyone have confidence in Victorian Premier Dan Andrews when the government had been relying on a contact tracing method which utilized pen, paper and a fax machine? What happened to the super computer that has spat out the ridiculous numbers that have impacted so many Victorians?
Pretty much every other state uses QR codes to register when people have visited certain establishments. Only now Victoria plans to enter the digital age. Why didn’t Andrews call up NSW Premier Gladys Beijiklian and asked who developed hers?
Presumably Andrews can hire people to manually input the names, numbers and emails of those establishments and be able to trace after 3 weeks.
What could possibly go wrong? Johannes Leak’s cartoon is so on point.
Victorian Premier Dan Andrews continues to receive accolades on his FB page. It is extraordinary. We just can’t reconcile how in the face of such overwhelming evidence of incompetence, that residents can still praise him.
It reminds us of a joke once told by President Reagan:
“An American and a Russian are sitting in a bar, arguing over whose country was better. The American argues,
“See, in America, I am free to do whatever I want. If I wanted to, I could walk right into the White House, slam my fist on the President’s desk, and say ‘Mr. President, I don’t like the way you are running our country.'”
The Russian then said, “I can do the same thing.”
“Really? You can?” asks the American.
“Yes,” continues the Russian, “If I wanted to, I could walk right into the Kremlin, slam my fist on the General Secretary’s office, and say ‘Mr. General Secretary, I don’t like the way President Reagan is running his country.'”
Here are some of the answers to Dan Andrews’ post despite the heavy handed police state tactics:
“Keep going Dan – you continue to work tirelessly and many of us Victorians are so grateful for your leadership” – Katrina Ann
“Thank you Dan! Appreciate and thankful for the time, energy and hard work that you and your team have spent looking after Victoria. We are proud of you.” – Helen Joyce
“The commitment to accept responsibility, and to turn up every day until it’s done is the true test of leadership. Thank you for your passion, for putting in the hard work, and pursuing solutions, no matter what happens on your watch. You’re way out in front of the crowd Dan.” – Adrian Robb
“Congratulations on 50 days straight! Thank you for being such a fabulous leader – considered, calm and strong. You and Professor Sutton are our saving grace. x #FanofDan #IStandWithDan” – Leanne Tonkes
“Well done dan! You are doing the best you can. I’d like to see the rude people try to live a day in your shoes! Keep it up 👍 “- Tamara Campion
“Dan Andrew’s is doing a terrific job in Victoria ,he has put the safety of the Citizens he is responsible for as top priority .He keeps his state informed and up to date every day yet he gets ridiculed by media reporter’s .Why are the media so scared to criticize Mr Morrison and his government if Morrison was only doing half of the communications Dan Andrew’s is doing the Citizens would feel much more secure.” – Bob N Jan
“Good job Dan. Australis is watching and want you for Prime minister.” – Jen Dunn
Although some sanity prevailed:
“You are a Criminal and a Traitor! Many of us know who the real Daniel Andrews is and we also know the real plan too! It was never about the Vaccine was it? No it wasn’t! When are you going to tell the people what‘s really going on?” – Jarrod Edwardian
“Hey Dan Andrews everyone right, we want you to go.You are incompetent and many times worst than corona virus for Victorians.” – Haluk Kar
“You are right to go! Please leave, your service no longer required.” – Trish DiDo
“Please report the stats on how many lives have been and will be lost due to the economic disaster as a result of lock down? How many will die from suicide, poverty and domestic violence? #endthelockdown” – Scott Peter
“Go where? You’ve stripped us of all our rights and livelihood.. The only place we’re going is bankrupt.. Ohhh wait, silly me.. You mean are we right to go as in, are we ready for some more lies? Yes carry on… 🤥” – Alfa Omega
“Right to go you say!! We can’t go anywhere because In the first time in Australian History our state is LOCKED DOWN BECAUSE OF YOUR INCOMPETENCE!!!!” – Shadi Bakir
“I was all for Mr Andrews but after his outrageously poor judgement to not appoint highly trained personal for such a delicate situation has made me think we need a new premier! Oh and why not test EVERYONE this is when we will see all asymptomatic people surface that’s not rocket science..” – Rhonda Miller
“You are destroying Victoria and it should be the opposite You may have the best intentions but you dont have the right ways Stop for a moment and seek advice there is other ways lockdowns are over” – Alberto Kebakovski
It seems that gaslighting knows no bounds. Some Victorians want to pay homage to Victorian Premier Dan Andrews with virtual claps despite his utter failure in handling lockdown. The virtual claps forum reads:
Updates (including current growth factor) will be provided on a regular basis. Let’s keep doing the right thing to bring down the growth factor.“
Kim Jong Un would blush at such a show from his loyal peasants.
Never mind Dan Andrews and team presided over the most incompetent handling of the pandemic by any state government by far.
Where the facts reveal the Andrews’ team are the last people that should be in charge of anything. 26% of the nation’s population and over 88% of the total death toll from coronavirus.
Where Victoria Police arrested and handcuffed a pregnant women who could face jail time of up to 15 years for incitement.
Where BLM protests took place with next to no enforcement of the lockdown laws. The three organizers were given fines but nothing more. Double standards.
Where private security guards – put in charge of quarantine hotels – slept with the people they were ordered to professionally look after. The same guards that were given a quick course in diversity instead of training in dealing with coronavirus.
Perhaps these brainwashed Victorians who want to make empty gestures on social media may think differently when they discover that the Andrews’ government will deliver what socialism always does – shared misery.
You have to hand it to the Victoria Police for making absolutely no effort in trying to politely reason with the people they are trying to arrest. Yesterday, Premier Dan Andrews denied seeing the video of the arrest of a pregnant mother in front of her kids. No doubt he will claim he hasn’t seen this video either. In what world did the Vic Police think a pregnant woman was a flight risk to warrant hand cuffing her?
James Bartolo is the second person in two days to be charged for ‘incitement’ thanks to the police state that is now Victoria. Does the Victorian government fear sedition? Must it crush those who seek to oppose its power trip? Is Dan Andrews enjoying his daily pressers a bit too much?
Bartolo uploaded a video discussing how he intends to go to the Saturday ‘Freedom Day‘ rally and encouraging others to stand up for their rights.
So even though Bartolo hasn’t physically done anything, Victoria Police rounded up a normally law abiding citizen for questioning the very powers granted by despotic politicians that should never have been granted them in the first place.
We would imagine that a growing number of Victorians can’t sit idly by and watch these Stasi tactics continue. This is nothing more than intimidation. If there are protest rallies off the back of these videos, we won’t be in the least bit surprised. It will be a 100% own goal.
Oh, and wasn’t it fascinating to see that Victorian authorities found another 59 coronavirus deaths out of nowhere? Could it possibly be another police state tactic to guarantee that the lockdown stays in full effect come September 13th? Absolutely. Kim Jong Un would blush at the efficiency.
BTW, where is PM Scott Morrison condemning what is happening?
