Now here is some total insanity! The state government’s COVID19 website lists the reason: “The lockdown has been introduced due to the detection of a positive COVID-19 case in a hotel quarantine worker.” Just one case of the Wuhan flu and they shut down a state of 2 million people! How nuts is that?
Well it really isn’t nuts. They say you should never let a crisis pass without using it all you can, especially in politics. It is an opportunity for political gain. The state government has an election coming up in March. I would be surprised if they lift the restrictions on Friday, 5 February 2021 as stated. My guess is they’ll find an excuse to extend it for weeks and months, to keep up the fear, up to the election.
It is called fear porn. Scare the sheeple into submission. Then they will beg the government to take away their liberties to ‘keep them safe’. It is all smoke and mirrors.
