My thoughts on the statement from the Attorney General today
The Attorney General's department website gives the following guidance to the public sector:
"The UN Human Rights Committee has stated that in no case may a person be arbitrarily deprived of the right to enter his or her own country, and that there are few, if any, circumstances in which deprivation of the right to enter a person's own country could be considered reasonable."
It also goes on to state that:
"The United Nations Committee on Human rights has stated that restrictions on freedom of movement should not only serve permissible purposes [namely national security, public order, public health or morals or the rights and freedoms of others]; they must also be necessary and proportionate to protect them and must be the least intrusive means of achieving the desired result."
Yet it seems the Attorney General believes these statements may not apply when it comes to restricting Australians from being able to return right now.
How does that make you feel? Do you think our situation is necessary and proportionate? Is it the least intrusive means of achieving the desired result? My thoughts...
Protect us from what? Leftist hypocrisy? Globalist Agenda? The virus has an infection rate so low that it is easier to catch a cold on a Sydney train, a mortality rate so low it is insignificant (check the numbers, they are wrong, everything virus or not are counted towards the virus.) The Virus is not a health emergency anymore, and stop using this as an excuse for emergency powers. We the People have had enough.
