Question for the PM: just how many COVID deaths a year are acceptable?


The federal government is turning to purely political solutions to deal with COVID.
That’s hardly surprising. This is, after all, a government led by a failed marketer. But the situation has been exacerbated by the government’s recent poll slump (now trailing Labor by 2% and worsening) coupled with the success of Queensland and WA’s highly protectionist policy frameworks.
In March, as Australia’s “super-fast” vaccine rollout was starting, Scott Morrison claimed that it was the government’s “hope and expectation” that Australia was on track to open international borders by October when the adult population had been vaccinated. This position was apparently dumped by doorstop last week, as Health Minister Greg Hunt followed the Mark McGowan playbook.

It found an astonishing number of blue-collar workers - proud union members no less - are abandoning the party because of its perceived preoccupation with fringe issues that have no relevance to them.
The mainstream disconnect is exactly what key Labor figures such as former Right faction leader and Hunter MP Joel Fitzgibbon, WA Premier Mark McGowan, NSW leadership contender Chris Minns and Bankstown MP Tania Mihailuk have warned about but there has been little hard data until now.
It also has grave implications for the Upper Hunter by-election in NSW which is a litmus test for state Labor leader Jodi McKay and will also determine if the Coalition is plunged into minority government.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison booed by West Coast Eagles fans during AFL match in Perth

Anthony Albanese's election strategy against Scott Morrison

As 2021 began, Labor looked to be a rank outsider in the next federal election. Like the state premiers, Scott Morrison was riding high, and with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout about to start the received wisdom was that Anthony Albanese was done for.
Some in the caucus had even begun to talk openly about whether it was time to roll the leader and replace him.
What a difference a couple of months can make.

Morrison and his government have been knocked from pillar to post, incurring significant political damage for the slow vaccine rollout and their mishandling of Brittany Higgins’ rape allegation and other bullying and sexual harassment claims.

Cyclone Seroja: Thousands of homes without power and buildings destroyed in Kalbarri, WA


West Australian communities battered by Cyclone Seroja could be without power for weeks as Premier Mark McGowan likened the damage to a 'war zone'.
Power is yet to be restored to about 29,500 homes and businesses late on Tuesday as authorities continue to assess the damage from the devastating storm.
Western Power said there were outages across the Midwest and Central Wheatbelt in an area spanning more than 700km long and 150km wide - with about 130 damaged poles on the transmission side of the network alone.
'We're working steadily to restore power but anticipate that some affected areas will be without power for weeks,' the utility said.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian warned on Monday about supply problems, with the state getting more than expected in some weeks and fewer than expected in others. Mr Morrison contacted Ms Berejiklian as well as others, such as Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, to seek their support for the new approach.

Westpac’s Bill Evans has seen a lot of economic ups and downs over the decades in his role as a prominent bank economist. He still describes the latest lift in consumer sentiment as “extraordinary”.
Even as he promotes the economic triumph evident in recent statistics of employment intentions, business profitability and investment levels, Scott Morrison is struggling for political traction.

It wasn’t lost on the Prime Minister that it had been a while since he was last in Western Australia. It had been 537 days since he last flew in.
Yet when he told a room packed with more than 400 business types at a lunch at Fraser’s Restaurant at King’s Park – a tourist hotspot overlooking the Swan River and Perth CBD – that yes, it’d been a while, he got a laugh. The crowd appreciated the honesty.
Elizabeth Gaines speaks with Scott Morrison ahead of his speech.
