Australian Senator calls on the Royal Commission to process the government’s COVID-19

Australia’s one-nation leader Pauline Hanson has called on political parties that won this year’s federal elections to establish a Royal Commission on Australia’s COVID-19 pandemic response.

Senator Said on sunday A “honest and thorough investigation” is “absolutely important” in investigating policies implemented by Australia’s federal, provincial, and territorial governments, but not a “simple exercise.” ..

“It is necessary because only the Royal Commission is likely to have the power needed to enforce the professional health advice that the Australian Government has relied on to justify and implement pandemic measures. Much of this advice is hidden from the Australian people, “she said.

“Australian people deserve a comprehensive account of the government’s decision to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The pandemic and government attempts to control it have caused thousands of people to lose their jobs, businesses to close doors, personal rights and freedoms to be reduced or destroyed, and “unelected bureaucrats” to be “extraordinary.” I have used my strength. “

“People have died. The economy has been closed. Schools have been closed. The entire city has been virtually closed. Borders have been closed. Huge amounts of taxpayer money have been spent. The military personnel were deployed, “Hanson said.

The Royal Commission is not “responsible or finding a scapegoat.” Responsibility is always left to the top leaders, but primarily to know which pandemic measures worked and which pandemic measures did not work. Australians can prepare for the next pandemic. Hanson added.

“As certain as the sun rises every day, there will inevitably be another pandemic. The lessons learned from this pandemic should teach us how to manage the next pandemic.”

“People who cannot learn from the mistakes of history are destined to repeat them.”
