Let’s be clear. Daniel Andrews needs more power.
If the Victorian dictator had only been given proper dictatorial powers — rather than the half-arsed democratic powers prescribed by the constitution or whatever the hell that sissy document is called – his state would not have recorded any Covid-19 cases at all.
You can’t expect Dictator Dan to fight a pandemic with one iron fist tied behind his totalitarian back.
The Victorian Parliament must pass the Public Health and Wellbeing bill, introduced to the Legislative Assembly yesterday, if Andrews is to have a fighting chance of fighting everyone under the cover of fighting Covid.
