You miss my point entirely in my comment but seeing as you don't even reside here I'll leave you ponder and wriggle with frustrationApart from the beat up about the states being communists.. last time I looked they are operating in democratic laws and if you want to (and you are in the right jurisdiction, you can vote against the sitting MP.. etc. Just a little bit of propaganda there.. But I do agree that it is insane that it applied across the states.. However, that is where the powers are - not federally.. and each state CMO provided advice they thought necessary for the protection of their state - that is their remit. Of course, they should have come to a more consistent approach - but then...
OK - so from the above - why shoud each state differentiate - and now we whoudl allow micro-differentiation... It's a tough act. I agree, however, that it may have been better to allow such differences.. But, you would have to enforce even more draconian travel restrictions as you wouldn't want the city fols descending on the rural areas so they could enjoy quite a bit more freedom than in the city..
In this case, the government is damned if they did and damned if they didn't Personally, stopping the spread in built up areas is a darned good job they should be patted on the back for.. regardless of political affiliation.
@Flightrite - your "Welcome to reality" was in response to a post that was stating the problems with not having a lockdown continue, yet you then say it is draconian to continiue it.. Maybe you shouuld look up the damage it does to people who survive it as well...
