Seems to be a hallmark of his government - they do things their own way. Andrews continually broke ranks in subtle ways with the rest of the national cabinet, and went this way on quarantine and contact tracing.Salesforce is a crappy system IF you start from scratch. The fact they were offered assistance to implement it from the police who know how to use it and ignored them is baffling.
Why not take assistance when offered it?
I think some people see it as strong leadership but you’d want to make sure that if you’re going to go it alone on such critical issues you are capable of doing it better. Unfortunately they very clearly couldn’t do it better on hotels or contact tracing.
