It is stange - I used to think living in Western Australia was like living in paradise until I couldn't leave... which is now the case. Covid has spread everywhere in the world but in Western Australia we have a hard baorded with every other Australian state and the rest of the world. As the rest of the country opens up at 80% vaccinatione rate, Mark McGowan the WA premier is insisting on Western Australia reaching 90% Vaccination rate before he "allows" the border to be back to normal.
The problem is that at the recent State Election more than 85% of the general public voted him back into office... so these thinga are accepted without much questioning... However the newspaper today is carrying opinion pieces questioning this stance. This is for the first time in nearly two years that the local newspaper has some discent to the absolute power of the government.
About time I think!!
