They knew then the dangers cruise ships posed.
Why didn’t they put strong border measures in place for all cruise ships then?
That did not happen.
4 days later the Ruby Princess arrived & disembarked 2700 passengers with no testing or quarantine.
Why were the rules different for the Ruby Princess?
The Morrison government put one set of rules in place for the Diamond Princess passengers in Feb, and a different and more lax set of rules for the Ruby Princess in March.
It makes no sense. It’s a border security failure.
The federal government sets border rules & enforces them.
We don’t ask airlines if people have contraband, incl fruit or other food. The ABF enforces the rules.
And so they should have with cruise ships.
This Government likes to say they stopped the boats.
Except they didn’t stop the one that really mattered.
Now @PeterDutton_MP must explain why.
