The Victorian government’s impulse towards “random and reckless shutdowns” shows it is “oblivious to the permanent damage” lockdowns do to Victorian small businesses and the private sector, says Sky News contributor Michael Kroger.

By contrast, Mr Kroger says the NSW government is “closer to business” and is “acutely aware of the devastating effects wreaked on small business by random shutdowns”.

“To understand the Victorian government response, have a look at the backgrounds of the senior ministers in the Andrews government and the Chief Health Officer … between them, they have never owned a business ever, not one business once,” he said.

“Since leaving school and university, these top government officials have been in the workforce for about 30 years each, 240 years. Their collective record of owning or operating a business in those 240 years – 0, not one.

“Is it any wonder these people do not have a nodding acquaintance with the consequences small business and the private sector of their random and reckless shutdowns?

“It explains why the Andrews government takes a sledgehammer approach to a problem that should be dealt with locally, not by state wide lockdowns.”

  1. I wonder if tonight's rant will be leveled at Gladys for doing exactly the same, too late 2 week lock down as Victoria did last month. Or whether it will be at the NT and WA for doing 3 day lockdowns. Or maybe it will just be against SA, QLD, Tas, NT and WA for closing borders to Greater Sydney.

  2. And they’ve just given themselves another pay raise , Daniel Andrew’s has never had a job other than in politics , they don’t know or care about small businesses or anybody for that matter .

  3. Its clear as light of day…
    Governments can not control small business tax and want them out.
    Only big enterprices will survive because governments have total control over them and like it or not govs will eventually take away our freedom.
    Young generations sadly will accept this because dont know any better ☹️☹️🤪

  4. update your shit man, lets see what Mick says today hey, queen Gladys locking all down for two weeks, gotta see what all these dickheads say tomorrow regarding the omnipotent NSW government's response to the 'new infectious delta variant'- their words not mine- basically, her and her CHO, repeating exactly what Merlino and Sutton were saying about it here a month ago. get Croger back on and get him to please explain, mate he and all the others must feel like the proverbial dumb cunts today- and yes I am trolling sky news, but not because I'm a fan of our government here in Vic- voting minor parties in a year and a half- but because they've all gotten drunk on Gladys's farts and found it far too easy to unload onto andrews and his idiots and hence forgotten to be unbiased and to look at everything with an objective eye. when Merlino and Sutton were saying we need a lockdown to help our tracing teams catch up with this variant, it was because Victoria's contact tracing is incompetent and useless along with the government, now that sydney is doing exactly the same, for the exact same reasons as stated by their premier and CHO- what? all of a sudden the Victorian authorities acted correctly? well they must've, cause if NSW is the gold standard as stated by the PM and everybody on sky news, then if they're doing exactly what the Vic government did in terms of responding to this new variant outbreak and for the same reasons, it must now mean that our government's response was appropriate yes- DICKHEADS? sick to death of all the news outlets, not one of them can be trusted to be objective, they're all as bad as one another, however, at least allan jones doesn't mind unloading of Gladys and her NSW govt when its is warranted, which seems to be often when talking about things other than covid. tomorrow I'm going to spenf the whole day off from work I have trolling all the sky new dick-wackers- and this from one who is wholeheartedly anti-andrews and labor

  5. They can hold us hostage with the variant for ever they don`t have to prove it exist or how dangerous it is.
    They only have to show with pseudo science models.
    Like they do from day one.

  6. The plan before covid came was to destroy small business and the middle class and that may never come back.
    Only corparations may exist and every one will get a basic income so not more middle class.
    You also own nothing.
    Covid is created for this and it is planned.

  7. It's part of the plan. All of their big business buddies get richer and they put their competition the little guy out of business. Can't anyone see this right now.

  8. The cookie crumbles

    And so the cookie starts to crumble…
    Daylight killers…
    The masks begin to fall off!
    "The Chinese biological laboratory in Wuhan is owned by Glaxosmithkline,
    which (accidentally) owns Pfizer!" (the one who makes the vaccine against
    the virus which was (accidentally) started at the Wuhan Biological Lab and
    which was (accidentally) funded by Dr. Fauci, who (accidentally) promotes
    the vaccine!
    "GlaxoSmithKline is (accidentally) managed by the finance division of Black
    Rock, which (accidentally) manages the finances of the Open Foundation
    Company (Soros Foundation), which (accidentally) manages the French AXA!
    "Soros (accidentally) owns the German company Winterthur, which
    (accidentally) built a Chinese laboratory in Wuhan and was bought by the
    German Allianz, which (coincidentally) has Vanguard as a shareholder, who
    (coincidentally) is a shareholder of Black Rock," which (coincidentally)
    controls central banks and manages about a third of global investment
    "Black Rock" is also (coincidentally) a major shareholder of MICROSOFT,
    owned by Bill Gates, who (coincidentally) is a shareholder of Pfizer (which
    – remember? Sells a miracle vaccine) and (coincidentally) is now the first
    sponsor of the 'WHO!
    Now you understand how a dead bat sold in a wet market in China has infected
    the WHOLE PLANET! ""

  9. NSW is no different and the other States are on the same mind set ..
    Control , Fear , coercion, division, Manipulation and intimidation
    And forcing an experimental drug on us all .. even the children .. Why .,
    😷 Masks mandates ..?
    Look at America 🇺🇸 Canada , England
    The same damages are happening over there as well
    Now evolving here ..
    Rules and regulations all over the place..,
    And most are following along as if we are on a joy ride ..,,
    If we don’t start to say NO this will continue
    What are the authorities going to do
    Throw us all in Jail ..??..!!!
    We are not far behind them ..!!
