COVID and the normalisation of failure

Gladys Berejiklian Scott Morrison NSW COVID-19

Yet we can’t name this abject failure, because we have to be focused on dealing with the consequences of it. So the dealing-with becomes the means by which the failure is normalised. Mustn’t grumble. Keep calm and carry on. Really, the federal government should have fallen by now. The independents should have pulled their support, and one or two Libs should have crossed the floor to bring on a no-confidence vote. It would have been the only response commensurate with this disaster.
