Gareth Parker slams government for destroying ‘sacred ceremonies’ with ‘overbearing rules’
6PR Breakfast host Gareth Parker has slammed the government for defending strict COVID protocols which have forced a number of suburban ANZAC Day dawn services to cancel.
Yesterday, Veterans Issues Minister Paul Papalia and Health Minister Roger Cook defended the protocols.
“They apparently aren’t that fussed that overbearing COVID rules and paperwork are destroying the most sacred ceremonies in our country,” Parker said.
“Instead of rolling up their sleeves and fixing it, they are defending it.
“I just think this needs more leadership and it needs some commonsense.
“I don’t want to hear these rules defended, I want to see these rules fixed.”
