MP issues ultimatum to Victorian government amid ‘completely unfair’ measures
Liberal MP Tim Smith has slammed the Victorian government as players arrive ahead of the Australian Open while the state’s border remains shut.
A fifth person has tested positive to COVID-19 after arriving on an Australian Open charter flight.
Parts of Greater Sydney remain locked out of Victoria, with Victorians not able to return to their home state.
Mr Smith told Ben Fordham it’s not good enough.
“It’s completely unfair, its wrong and the double standards stink to high heavens.
“Daniel Andrews should be standing up for Victorians, not global tennis players.
“Bring the Victorians home or cancel the Australian Open.”
The Victorian Premier has downgraded 25 Greater Sydney local government areas from red zones, allowing stranded Victorians to return home.
Blacktown City, Burwood, Canada Bay City, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield City, Inner West, Liverpool City, Parramatta City and Strathfield remain red zones.
