Victoria’s Upper House has this afternoon called for Daniel Andrews’ curfew to be lifted immediately.
The Upper House has also called for Daniel Andrews’ secret documents on the curfew to be delivered to the Upper House by Friday.
The community knows the Chief Health Officer and the Chief Commissioner of Police have disowned Andrews’ curfew.
Andrews has also not explained where the curfew came from and whose ideas it was. It’s time he came clean.
Labor’s curfew is not based on health evidence nor on a request from the police. It appears to have been dreamed up by Daniel Andrews in his bunker at 1 Treasury Place.
He’s out of touch.
Comments attributable to the Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council, David Davis:
“Andrews’ heavy-handed curfew was never justified. We know now neither the Chief Health Officer nor the Police Commissioner called for it. All the evidence is Andrews dreamed this up himself.
“It’s a cruel and unhelpful infringement of liberties, likely to cause congestion at facilities like supermarkets and petrol stations as people cluster in the lead up to the curfew chop.
“The motion directs the Government to bring to the Upper House Chamber all the documents on which Andrews based his decision to slap a curfew on Melbournians.
“Upper House MPs today made clear they do not support Andrews’ curfew.”
