Sky News host Peta Credlin says Premier Palaszczuk announcing that her government will build its own quarantine facility in Toowoomba is a “colossal rip-off for taxpayers”.
Ms Credlin said the facility is set to be built at the privately-owned Wellcamp Airport which the Morrison government “rejected” repeatedly as being “unsuitable”.
“The Premier is pressing ahead – just two weeks after the Commonwealth agreed to spend federal taxpayers’ money on a separate quarantine site, on the outskirts of Brisbane.
“Why are taxpayers now building two quarantine centres in Queensland?
“That’s the issue – and no amount of political spin will change that fact.”
