- Ms Palaszczuk on Wednesday night posted a curious tweet noting that the holiday season was just around the corner and urged people to help lift the state’s lagging Covid vaccination rate.
- Mr Dutton, whose federal seat of Dickson is in Queensland, agreed that Ms Palaszczuk’s reference to the approaching Christmas season was a likely hint she was planning to open the state up to outsiders.
- “I hope she lives up to that word,” the Defence Minister told 2GB radio host Ray Hadley.
- But he also lashed Ms Palaszczuk and Queensland Labor for its tough stance on borders and not committing to a firm reopening.
