The Andrews government is under fire this evening, after an FOI release revealed that the ‘best health advice’ that had been used as the justification for CHO directions was really just internal polling data.
CHO Brett Sutton remained defiant that this was standard practice.
“I don’t know why anyone is surprised, none of the decisions have been anything close to scientific,” Sutton said.
“All we did was continually poll a bunch of frightened middle-class public servants and formulate policy off of that. What other possibility was there?”
Sutton said that this process would continue until small businesses had been completely wiped out.
