NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller has defended claims that he’s destroying the middle class by enforcing CHO directions, after record numbers of small businesses were forced to close last week, sending thousands to the unemployment line.
Fuller defended accusations that it was “heavy handed bullshit.”
“I’ve got a family and a mortgage too mate, so I understand their pain,” Fuller told the press conference.
“But there’s a deadly virus with a 99.98% survival rate and if you aren’t following any of these arbitrary edicts, then you’ll be forced to close down and be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
“I mean, if Australians haven’t worked out by now after 18 months that destroying the middle class under the pretense of a pandemic isn’t the whole fucking point, then they’re as dumb as the size of their mortgages suggest.”
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that payments to any EZFKA business who has been affected by this, and that private sector businesses Blackrock and Vanguard stood by ready to help when necessary.
