‘Us and them’: Western Sydney mayor calls out health advice double standard
A western Sydney mayor has rejected an “us and them” mentality after Sydney’s lockdown was extended.

The Premier will consider tougher restrictions for residents in those areas if the situation isn’t brought under control.

“I think there needs to be a very compelling reason to single out our city … for harsher treatment considering that didn’t happen to the eastern suburbs.”
