Andrews ‘won’t face the most elementary accountability’ despite ‘catastrophic failures’

The Australian’s Foreign Editor Greg Sheridan says the Andrews government's handling of the pandemic is one of the most catastrophic government failures in Australian history.

It comes as the Victorian premier has once again come under fire for his assurances the state government was not offered Australian Defence Force support regarding hotel quarantine.

An email sent from the Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister to Cabinet to the head of the Department of Premier and Cabinet entitled ‘Assistance Re Hotel Security’ was uncovered on Tuesday contradicting the premier’s previous statement on ADF support.

“This is one of the most catastrophic government failures in Australian history since World War two, since federation,” Mr Sheridan told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“Daniel Andrews will not face the most elementary accountability.

“Now there may be some fourth dimension of the universe in which you can explain that email and Andrews can still claim he’s telling the truth; I don’t know, neither does anyone else because he simply refuses to answer the question.”
