Government Senator Gerard Rennick has announced that he is withholding his vote from the Government until they stop supporting vaccine mandates.
All I can say is good on Senator Rennick for taking a principled stand on this issue, he has my full support.
It is sad to see so many other gutless Liberal and National politicians tying themselves in knots with spin and doublespeak as they defend the indefensible.
Scott Morrison promised the Australian people there would be no mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations but he has broken this promise by refusing to take the necessary action.
If the Government wanted to end vaccine mandates and put a stop to this bullying and coercion that has no place in Australian society, they could start by supporting my COVID-19 Vaccination Status (Prevention of Discrimination) Bill 2021.
Senator Rennick taking a stand is a start, but much more needs to be done if we are to end the pandemic of authoritarian overreach which has risen off the back of COVID-19.
