Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has been ‘fearmongering’

Nationals Senator Matt Canavan says the Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has been “fearmongering” and to repair the damage she’s inflicted is by “speaking about the facts”.

Ms Palaszczuk remains strong on her border closure until all children are fully vaccinated and stated they would be ‘vulnerable’ to the virus if it was let in once the state reopens – despite the health advice.

“This was a desperate attempt to inoculate herself against legitimate criticism of the hypocrisy of her border restrictions,” Mr Canavan told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“This is what makes it worst, this is not just some slip of the tongue, this was not just some odd mistake.

“Over the last 48 hours, the Premier has been under enormous political pressure over her government’s decision to allow a hundred NRL family members and officials cross the border from Sydney when she’s been denying access to Queenslanders."
