Stone the crows…

Keith Duncan, Pimlico

Well stone the bloody crows, Kevin Hogan has said something! The photogenic image we constantly see in our local newspapers has developed a voice, and to cap it all off, Kevin has suddenly become an expert on health, by advising the Queensland premier on how to handle the COVID-19 pandemic!

Yes, it is an inconvenience to have to go through border control procedures to visit Gold Coast hospitals for specialists’ appointments and medical procedures, however, it is also an inconvenience to spend two to three weeks in hospital on a ventilator after being infected with COVID-19. Maybe if health facilities were better in Northern NSW, people wouldn’t have to travel to Queensland.

Kevin is quick to jump on the political bandwagon and badmouth Annastacia Palaszczuk for doing her best to keep COVID-19 under control. The same Kevin that supports a government that has presided over the complete failure within the aged care industry, by being totally unprepared to deal with the pandemic.

Ever since the Howard government started down the road to privatisation, the aged care sector has suffered chronic understaffing. Shocking revelations emerged from the recent Royal Commission of people with ants crawling in open sores being left unattended; residents left hungry, alone in their rooms; our most vulnerable Australians dying without their families by their sides. Anything to say about that Kevin?

    As previously stated… the Qld Premier will be first
    To go … followed By Andrews …
    If the NSW premier was i charge of these
    Draconian. Totalitarian states such as Qld and Victoria… people like you keith and the Left
    Would be going into Meltdown.. as would the ABC
    Who have been hijacked from top to bottom
    By the left … incidentally where are the greens ,
    The human rights advocates , civil libertarians ?
    Well silent of course .. !! Expect anything different NO… hypocrites..

  2. Keith, I understand the shock. My reaction? I went blank.
    Then I realized that our Kevin’s lock-jaw was due to
    federal stealth – no kidding!

  3. So…… we are going into meltdown… I like ice-cream! And the
    only draconian meltdown’s coming from those so posed in
    their ‘the world is flat’ syndrome. How strange it is that the
    foot-in-mouth ones are [if they’ll admit it] afraid of the ABC
    because of what’s exposed as incompetence. Last I heard
    of the greens you’ll just have to wait & see. Viva La Difference.
