Neil Breen: Cricket teams’ quarantine ‘unacceptable’ for Queenslanders

Neil Breen has pointed out an ‘unacceptable’ double standard in Queensland’s suspension of hotel quarantine. 

The Palaszczuk government last week announced all interstate arrivals from hotspots would be suspended for a fortnight, including returning residents.

Listener Glenn earlier told Neil his wife, who is suffering from cancer, has been unable to return home for a month between the border restrictions and an inability to obtain an exemption.

However, an entourage of cricket players and coaches have been accepted into the state for the Commonwealth Bank Women’s Series against India.

All players based in New South Wales and Victoria, as well as the Indian team, will commence a two-week quarantine period in Brisbane, starting today.

“Cricket Australia’s confirmed to us that the Queensland government is allocating them space in their quarantine hotels,” Neil said.

“So, at present, if you’re a Queenslander who’s interstate, you can’t come home … because there’s no places in quarantine.

“Yet, they’re going to host the entire Indian cricket team plus all the entourage, plus all the New South Wales and Victorian players from interstate.”
