, State governments ‘incentivised’ to be draconian: Stoker, The Nzuchi Times

Assistant Minister to the Attorney-General Amanda Stoker says there is tension between premiers who are responsible for the health response and the federal government that bears the economic brunt of what occurs. This comes after Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced Greater Sydney’s lockdown would be extended by a further four weeks on Wednesday. “State governments are incentivised to be quite draconian in circumstances where they don’t accept responsibility for the economic consequences,” Ms Stoker told Sky News. “The key to getting life as close to back to normal as we can is vaccines.”
