Not sure that most people here are politically aligned. I think Vic's are pretty pissed that it got put again hence why Dan is copping it. And so he should.I'm not at all. Hotel quarantine has been an abject failure in Victoria, and Dan has underperformed on a state-by-state basis. Fair to criticize for that.
What's not fair is to criticize him for things the federal government are supposed to be responsible for. Hotel quarantine is a federal responsibility. They hastily passed it on to the states with no notice when Covid was already taking over. This points to a completely inept federal government. They have grossly failed in their duty, and it seems many on here let their political alignment get in the way. You see the same people pile on about everything Dan does wrong yet so many of the criticisms relate to things that were never his responsibility in the first place, or never should have been. Add in the idiotic "Dan should be hung, drawn and quartered" comment from someone who is blatantly barracking for the other side, and that's why I have been arguing this point in the first place.
FYI, I'm not a Dan supporter. I'm not even Victorian. Dan Andrews has underperformed in his job and deserves criticism for failure relating to his actual duties. Scott Morrison has grossly failed in his job and deserves criticism for so many of the things Dan Andrews is actually copping the heat for.
The hotel quarantine failure was horrific and Dan should be held accountable. He doesn't appear to have been and gets lauded for his lock downs. Minimal faith in Andrews.
Scomo is an ineffectual weak BS artist. And yes he is technically responsible for quarantine but it all seems a bit hard for him. Zero faith in him. Someone like John Howard or Keating would have managed it not Scomo - he is the worst kind of leader - a poll driven unprincipled jellyfish.
