Annastacia Palaszczuk has words of praise for ascendant Queenland Governor Jeannette Young… we think? This, and more tips from the Crikey bunker.
Young at heart After the ascension of Dr Jeannette Young to the role of Queensland governor, you’d expect there’d be some gushing from Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, who has spent a lot of time working with her. Young has been, until now, Queensland’s chief health officer during the entirety of Palaszczuk’s tenure as premier.
You may remember Young as the anti-vaxxer crowd’s favourite CHO after she told 18-year-olds in her state to not get the AstraZeneca vaccine on account of a vanishingly rare risk of fatal blood clotting — something she stood by even after it became clear Delta could put children in hospital. But regardless of how you feel about her ascension, Palaszczuk response is… odd. “I know you will always stand beside Queensland because you are not just Your Excellency. As far as the people of Queensland are concerned, you are Our Excellency.” What it lacks in dignity, it makes up in incoherence.

But of course most people aren’t pumping out propaganda against those measures.
