One former Independent Senator is warning the Government that it should reflect carefully on how it manages the discontent brewing in the country.
The warning comes from Former Law Association President, Martin Daly.
Writing in his weekly online column on Wired 868, Daly pointed to the Government’s handling of the mandatory vaccination for public servants and the lack of proper consultation or legislation to support their stance.
The former said that the government, through its handling of the issue, has created an opportunity for those opposed to vaccination to become the catalyst for an explosion of other grievances and deprivations hurting a pandemic-weary population.
He added that to make matters worse, protesters have been tear-gassed, creating an additional catalyst for discontent.
Mr Daly called on the Government to “think again”, before adding that sober reflection on how protest is to be managed in these volatile times is urgently required.
