Hi Indy,

You and I seem to be comrades in arms on this one. The other states have such powers to call a heath emergency at will through the Chief Heath Office, Victoria does not. Folks were jumping up and down protesting that CHO's were not elected and shouldn't have such arbitrary powers. Okay civil liberties and such maybe its right that an elected person (the premier) holds that power through the parliament, with inbuilt safeguards to protected the citizens from dictatorial control. People who wanted that are now protesting against what they wanted.

The idea that "freedoms" should override a health emergency are plainly ridiculous, such freedoms could lead to thousands of deaths. I find it hard to believe that the likes of Clive Palmer would give a rats about peoples civil liberties, this is political. I said earlier that when you get 90 plus percent vaccinated, and the vast majority voluntarily doing so I said people were voting with their arms.

We may disagree on politics, but this is above politics, its about health, the State Premiers Labor and Liberal, in the main they have done a good job trying to save lives.

"The protests are not connected to the liberal party in any way other than they also oppose the fascist legislation he is trying to pass".

That's right. The ONLY people connected to the Liberal party or any other political party are paid up members - and only a minuscule number of Australians are interested enough to pay membership money to political parties. Given our appalling politicians, that's no surprise. Why would anyone want to help the bastards!

Even the politicians themselves are disconnecting:

At least two Coalition senators will not pass Morrison government bills if the government will not take action to oppose vaccine mandates.

SM,

Not willing to admit LIBERAL PARTY politicians were part of a call to violence in Melbourne. State Liberal MP's addressed the mob from the steps of Parliament. Morrison whilst appearing to condemn violence did in the same breath make a Trump like pitch for the preference vote of the violent extreme right. Kelly in the familiar yellow cloak of Palmer is an ex-Liberal. Other in the Liberal Party are at the heels of Morrison to advocate for the objectives of the extreme, Fat George for one.

Paul,

Yet again you are lying.

Firstly there is far more evidence of the unions being involved in the protests and you have bugger all evidence that any liberal was involved with the protests other than addressing some of the protesters and even then were they calling for calm? again you are clueless.

Secondly, the most recent protests were entirely peaceful.

Finally, the question should be: Why are you not willing to admit GREEN PARTY politicians were part of a call to violence in Melbourne?
