Peta Credlin calls out Queensland’s hotel quarantine hypocrisy

The Queensland Government has been labelled hypocritical after granting border exemptions for the AFL.

Scott Emerson slammed the decision to allow 400 AFL employees and family members into the state, particularly with many ordinary Queenslanders speaking out about the personal impact of the border closure.

“We’ve lost sight that we’re trying to save lives from a virus, but we’re actually I think losing more lives in the end, if you look at the mental health tally.

“We’re definitely losing livelihoods.”
