QLD's handling of the virus looks set to ensure a continuation of same government. Same in WA. Just shows that the population respects statesmanship being displayed by leaders at such a time.
Mis-information unless New Zealand isn't a western country, however I do agree, keeping the borders shut, state and international is insular.

You can leave, on your form say 3 months or longer. Easy peasy.

Bit ironic you talk negatively about international borders then applaud state borders. No surprise I guess as a Labor party member.

Unlike some that appear on here I am not affiliated with any party. I consider both main parties differ little on important issues impacting this nation. All are beholden to vested interests and little if anything will stop the rot will get worse.
Not ironic. Countries in EU have closed sections and cities down. The difference being none have closed borders to leave.

Such a situation should hardly be surprising in a country with few guaranteed rights, I guess.

So what's your stance? The EU model or the Australian model?

Obviously the EU model is not proving successful in fighting COVID and the Australian model is but there's many more facets to life than COVID.

Or it's the same old same old in that the opposition is poor. I'd happily see the back of Palaszczuk but the LNP are shite and Deb Frecklington is not someone I ever want to see in control of anything. Better the devil you know etc. Palaszczuk may have 'saved' us from COVID but it's impossible to tell what would have happened if she hadn't taken the steps she has. I think you're giving her more credit than she deserves.

Palaszczuk is just awful but as you rightly say, got to have some else worth voting for. I don't know why Gladys keeps getting drawn into discussion about her. If she wants to play politics with the borders and the QLD ecomomy let her. Maybe Gladys is sick and tired of being the only contributor towards jobkeeper/ seeker with Victoria off the grid.

I see Deb is not offering up anything different on the border front. Both know there's too many voting rednecks in QLD who don't get how to balance COVID and life. Indeed better the devil you know.

My stance being neither ALP nor Liberal in the run of things. If referring purely to Corona Virus then ALP State Governments have set a high bench mark.
But obviously coming from a WA state point of view somewhat colours perceptions, with this state being almost unrecognizable being in 'a crisis'.

Not really. Her stance is hardly unique among the ALP states. I have no real opinion of her outside of virus management but the LNP know, historically a few things about rounding up the redneck vote. QLD, by nature, if less so than past days, tends towards conservative politics. Palaszczuk has managed to harness, by appearances all sides of the QLD divide. Or enough to matter, that will allow a retention of power.
Politics in Australia is hardly a positive experience which ever way you chose to look at it. Hardly alone on that front

So how about the redneck Trump supporters that agree with Trump it is only akin to a 'little cold'? Have they the correct balance?

I am not sure what you are on about.

You were complaining about Australian international borders, praising state borders, commenting on country borders in Europe and referring to cities in lockdown in Europe.

It is still not clear what your stance is?

I'm not too sure (will have to check) but I think that 'redneck Trump supporters' don't get to vote in Australian State elections

My stance is what is appearing to be the correct procedure at the moment. But with the allowance of people to leave the country at will. They must, in doing so, face the consequences, if wanting to return.
It has been commented that Australia may well be entering negative growth in population, or even a decline. First time since 1916 I believe.

But they do in their own jurisdiction (you may need to check that as well) which was obviously what I referred to.
