Premier Daniel Andrew’s dictatorial approach to COVID-19 has made international headlines. He is responsible for inflicting upon Victorians some of the most stringent pandemic-control measures on Earth; 115 days of lockdown, longer than the 92-day lockdown in Manila, 76 days in Wuhan, China, 58 days in Italy, and 33 days across New Zealand. In Melbourne, public life essentially came to a halt, and people were only allowed to leave their houses for one hour of exercise per day, or to buy food, care for others or seek medical attention. Police asked cyclists for identification to ensure they were not breaching a rule allowing exercise only within five kilometres of their homes, and they also harassed old ladies siting on park benches for taking a break from their walks.
Dan Andrew’s justification for his draconian COVID-19 laws was ‘health before rights’.
Ironically, what is less known, is Dan Andrew’s approach to the forced installation of smart meters, and his arrogant refusal to assist people whose health is severely affected by the pulsed electromagnetic radiation constantly emitted by these devices 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
While other states have a humanitarian approach towards the installation of smart meters, Victoria refuses to permit the disabling of the radiofrequency communications module of smart meters, even for people with compromised immune systems and who have medical conditions and certificates delineating their sensitivity to microwave radiation.
Other Australians can choose not to have an electricity meter that emits pulsed microwave radiation, but not Victorians!
Recently a friend of SSMA living in NSW, only a few hundred metres away from the Victorian border, had a smart meter installed after purchasing solar panels. He asked to have the communication module disabled, and Origin Energy said “No problems”; and it was disabled right in front of the property owner (who happens to be an electrician). This person had no medical condition, but was knowledgeable enough to know of the dangers posed by pulsed radiation.
Yet in Victoria Dan Andrews will not permit this to happen, even for people severely suffering, just like Sergio Casagrande of Reservoir.
Dan Andrews’ callous disregard towards people who have become severely ill, and sometimes been made homeless, due to pulsed emissions from smart meters, makes a mockery of his justification of putting health before rights in the fight against COVID-19.
