Divisions within the ruling coalition in the Australian Federal Parliament continued during this week’s session.
National Party MP George Christensen first, like Senators Antic and Renik, announced that he would not support any government agenda until Australians who do not want to be vaccinated are protected from discrimination. He then vehemently accused the governments of states and territories and even compared kovid measures to the Nazi regime.
– The totalitarian regimes responsible for the most heinous crimes in the 20th century, I mean Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot, did not emerge overnight. They used fear as a tool of control, and then they began to exclude people from society. First gently, and then more sharply, until they finally started to eliminate people, both socially and physically – said George Christensen during his speech in Parliament.
He then said that in Australia in the 21st century, the prime ministers of states and territories are racing on that path, trying to “outwit each other”.
– Intoxicated by the powers they have, they introduce their own biosafety laws and establish police states with complete medical apartheid. Unvaccinated Australians are increasingly demonized and socially excluded. The totalitarian path we are on now has never ended well – Christensen pointed out.
He even called on people to civil disobedience.
“The way to restore human dignity in this country, and I’m not saying that lightly, is civil disobedience,” Christensen said.
The opposition strongly condemned this attitude of the coalition MPs and asked the Federal Prime Minister Scott Morrison to condemn his speech. However, the Prime Minister never mentioned Christensen by name in his answer.
– As the son of a police officer, I believe that everyone should respect the law and no one should ever encourage disrespect for the same. “I would always condemn any act of encouraging civil disobedience, by any person and in any place,” Morrison said.
The Prime Minister then reminded of 2017, when the unions tried to break into the Parliament, which was justified by the ACTU union secretary Sally McManus, saying that “she does not consider breaking the law a problem, if the law is unfair.” His reminder was not to the liking of Labor, who loudly protested this Morrison’s comparison.
The first “victory” of Antić and Renik
Senators Alex Antic and Gerard Renik relented in their intention not to support any government proposal in the Upper House of Parliament until unvaccinated citizens are protected. However, they agreed to vote only for certain procedural decisions, and in return demanded that changes be made to the regulation on compensation for employees who have adverse reactions after receiving the kovid vaccine.
The request has been fulfilled, so if someone is prevented from working after the vaccination, he will be compensated if he loses at least 1,000 dollars from his salary. Originally, the government’s plan was to apply compensation only when someone lost $ 5,000 in earnings.
