Premier’s misguided loyalty to anti vaxxer

Every day that Jeremy Rockliff’s stands by his anti vaxxer candidate Julie Sladden is another fatal blow to any credibility the Premier may have had.

Not only is Julie Sladden an anti-vaxxer, she is also on the record questioning the Therapeutic Goods Administration’s efforts to stop GPs prescribing the horse wormer ivermectin to treat Covid.

For the Premier – who was Health Minister during Covid – to stand with someone who has undermined efforts to keep people safe beggars belief, especially when the AMA has called her candidacy untenable. 

Rather than listening to the experts, Mr Rockliff has doubled down on his support for someone with dangerous beliefs that go against everything the former Health Minister stood for during Covid.
