“Once every single person in this state has had the opportunity to be vaccinated then we should open up for everyone… I want to see more unity and not a two-tiered society… It’s not the government’s role to provide freedom.” Dominic Perrottet talking to Joe Hildebrand on 2GB on 24 September 2021.
The Berejiklian date for the unvaccinated to enjoy equality with their vaccinated superiors was 1 December. Surely Perrottet would bring this date forward. After all, as at to today 2 November 87.8% of those 16 years and over in NSW have been fully vaccinated. Time for universal freedom, one would think, from a principled “conservative” Catholic. One would think wrong.
The date has now been extended to 15 December or until 95% are fully vaxxed – an unlikely prior event.
Ms Berejiklian was caught by ICAC as saying Perrottet does what I tell him to do. Just so. Presumably, he wanted keep in sweet with the former premier. Now, presumably, it’s the turn of public health officials to pull his strings. Can’t say I’m surprised. Principles and politicians seldom, if ever, go together. We need Hayek’s model. No one under 50 years of age. Strict ten-year limit. Mind you, human nature being what it is, we’d still get mostly unprincipled tossers.
