Victoria Redefines Covid-19 and Lowers the CHO's Burden of Proof


The length of time for the State of Emergency extension in Victoria is not the problem! In this report Matt details the definition changes to Victoria’s laws that redefine Covid-19 and cement emergency powers, as well as the lowering of standards for the Chief Health Officer (Brett Sutton) in the case of his directives being questioned in court.

Victoria is full of hardworking, decent, trustworthy citizens…as Dan Andrews himself has repeatedly described us. So why not treat us like adults?

Or are we simply all ‘bat-sh*t crazy’ as Victoria Police assistant commissioner Luke Cornelius described us today?

I made this video to be a weapon. Not a political weapon, but an education weapon that clearly lays out the facts of the proposed legislative changes before parliament. Share it to help people, not to attack them.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” C.S. Lewis

This is the problem with the new, proposed section 3(4) in the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 (Vic). With the greatest of intent, we are about to chain ourselves into an unscientific merry go round of lockdowns that are now being discredited by mainstream infectious disease epidemiologists like Professor Mark Woolhouse.

I’ve been advised by an MP that the Andrews Labor Government has included this new sub-section to ‘protect’ Victoria when it has no cases but other neighbouring states might have many cases. This is to allow lockdowns and other measures to continue to prevent COVID-19 re-entering the state.
