Column by Nine news’ political editor belatedly published in Melbourne. Plus: Q&A episode accused of inciting violence cleared by regulator
Nine news’ political editor, Chris Uhlmann, is not a fan of the Victorian Labor government’s response to the pandemic, and he told Sydney Morning Herald readers all about it in a rather forthright opinion piece on Wednesday.
“The Victorian solution punishes the many for the few,” the Canberra-based journalist said. “It preferences the very old over the young, mortgaging the future of the entire school and working-age population. It is hard to imagine how you could design a policy that is more profoundly unfair or damaging to a society.”
