I do, but why do you make an announcement in the middle of the night about threats of five years’ jail and considerable fines and then days later say that we won’t implement the law. There is a separation of course of powers … between law enforcement and lawmakers, but this is quite extraordinary.
The fact that the government made this announcement on of course late Friday night or Saturday morning after they had meetings with leaders of the Indian community on Friday, hadn’t bothered to mention that this was coming, then on Sunday we had a further double-down from the foreign minister.
On Monday we had the health authorities come out with a different story, saying it wasn’t based upon advice, but of course they don’t make the rules and then yesterday morning we had Scott Morrison saying virtually no chance, “almost zero possibility” of implementing the laws and then today on your program we had – it has now become absolutely zero possibility.
This is a shambles. The government should be getting the vaccinations right and it should be getting quarantine right. Scott Morrison said that Australians would be brought home by Christmas and we know that more than 35,000 Australians remain stranded overseas.
