Joe Hildebrand has joined calls to restart the domestic cruise industry, calling the ban “insanity”.

The ban on cruises has been extended until March 2021.

“We’ve got people going across the border in cars, planes, but for some reason, they can’t cross the border in boats,” Joe remarked.

“This ‘lockdown for the sake of lockdown’ mentality is insane!

“One more interesting thing about cruise passengers the PM might be interested in: they float and they vote!”
