Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has come out swinging against his proverbial next door neighbour.
South Australia announced yesterday (June 16) that it would open its borders to Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Tasmania from midnight.
Other states will have to wait until at least next month to be able to holiday, do business in person and see family in South Australia, however Dan Andrews has questioned why the hell would you even want to.
When asked what he thought about Victoria being left off the list of places that could travel to South Australia, the Premier didn’t hold back.
“I don’t want to be offensive to South Australians, but why would you want to go there?”
Mr Andrews encouraged Victorians to travel across the state to help out local economies before they thought of going interstate.
It’s unsurprising that Victoria was left off the list of safe states and territories after it recorded more than 20 new coronavirus cases.
While most state and territory leaders are keen for all the borders to be opened up as soon as possible, it seems like Mr Andrews doesn’t care much for his western counterpart.
Speaking of which, the South Australian Premier has clapped back to the savagery with a video showcasing all the reasons to head to the state.
Steven Marshall said on Twitter: “@DanielAndrewsMP asked why anyone would want to go to South Australia. Well Dan, here’s why.”
The tourism ad features all the things you can do, from having a swim at some of the beautiful beaches (not in this weather), checking out some of the great wineries and doing all the other fun outdoor adventures.
No doubt the sting from Mr Andrews will make the next National Cabinet meeting a touch awkward.
