Former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman says Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk’s home quarantine trial is “shameful”.
“There are Queenslanders of very modest means living in vehicles, in tents, off the charity of others in Northern New South Wales who cannot get home,” Mr Newman told Sky News host Peta Credlin.
“And it’s not good enough to say they have to fly in – they do not have the financial resources to do that.
“It’s a disgrace that between the police and health, they can’t get the approvals through quick enough.
“The Premier cannot turn her back on these people.”
