More fractured than ever: a toxic mix of policy and politics

Australia’s federation is now more fractured than at any time during this crisis.

We know the Morrison government is now totally focused on getting life back to some normality. It stresses this will be done “safely”. In fact, it is less a matter of opening “safely” than minimising the risks inevitable in opening. That goes beyond the state of the health system to include issues such as sub-groups in the population who might not be adequately vaccinated when the general community levels of 70% and 80% are reached. Dealing with the risks will demand more nuance than “the plan” seems to provide.
