Dan Andrews Government Exposed Profiling Citizens According to Covid Compliance

Despite dividing his constituents according to their Covid compliance, Dictator Dan still oversaw the highest percentage of deaths nationwide in Victoria.

The Dan Andrews government classified Victorians according to their compliance to Covid diktats, with the worst category of offenders censured for choosing “individual rights” over “collective rights”, according to a bombshell FOI revelation obtained by The Australian.

The communique, which profiled citizens into five categories — ranging from Victorians who “strongly support and follow restrictions” to those who believe “fantastical conspiracy theories” and consider government “the enemy” — came from an unidentified senior bureaucrat inside the Andrews government.

“1 & 2 are similar,” the email reads. “They make up the bulk of people and are pretty compliant. 3 is probably the main group to persuade — they’re reasonable and need to hear a good case.”

“5 not open to any form of sense or reason,” the official wrote of Andrews’ perceived recalcitrants, quantifying them as “a tiny percentage but a lot of people in raw numbers”.

A ‘Scathing Assessment’

The Australian obtained the email — which it described as a “scathing assessment” of Victorians — among 160 pages of documents, after requesting access to communications between the Andrews government and its “secretive political intelligence and strategy firm” QDOS.

The email was sent on April 6, 2022, during the dying days of the Andrews government’s fling with ‘Covid Zero’ that saw Melbourne endure a world record-breaking lockdown lasting 267 days.

While the identity and job title of the bureaucrat who drafted the email was redacted, The Australian judged it “highly likely” they worked closely with Dan Andrews from within either the Department of Premier and Cabinet, or the Premier’s Private Office.

QDOS played an “influential role at the highest levels of the Andrews government,” according to the report. Ironically, their services were paid for by the very Victorians they were commissioned to divide and coerce.

Partisan Politics or Public Health?

Despite Dan Andrews’ iron-fist rule of his constituents, Victoria ended up with the worst overall Covid mortality in the nation, with a death rate of 16.1 per 100,000 people compared to the national average of 12.4 between March 2020 and September 2023.

This inconvenient truth was highlighted by former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations Ramesh Thakur in the Spectator Australia. Thakur wrote:

Addressed chiefly as a public health matter, the primary concern would have been the health and safety of the people. Instead, the primary motivation was clearly political control and moulding public opinion for partisan advantage.

Unfortunately, once collective welfare is allowed to override individual rights, the government acquires unlimited unchecked power. Whole societies ended up with every aspect of their lives micromanaged by bureaucrats and technocrats with no philosophical grounding in public health ethics. Several governments will have been delighted at the success of the trial run in demonstrating just how weak and narrow the pushback was.

“Even now,” Thakur surmises, “it would be a check on future abuse and thus a deterrent if the name of the top bureaucrat(s) were to be published.”

    Kurt, a most important piece. Thank you so much for scouring the mainstream media for gems like this. What strikes me most important here is the complete lack of the possibility of an opposition to the one party state of Victoria. The fact is that the opposition willingly signed up to the one party state on account of the ’emergency’.

    Certainly seems like the Golfers who don’t want a bar of this ‘fellow’ have good instincts.
    Yes, we certainly need a list of the willing participants in this farce and hold them all to account.
    Covid measures are a continuing blight on our history.
    Thank God for Dan’s departure.

    Dan Andrews left Victoria broke , in debt for billions for years to come thanks to a so-called
    “opposition “party which is just as Woke which persecuted Moira Deeming. I don’t see any hope for Victoria . The State is a mess and Melbourne unlivable !
