THE Palaszczuk government’s schlock peddler, The Courier Mail, earlier this evening reported the emergence from Gold Coast University Hospital of the man, the myth, the legendary Public Enemy Number 1, Duran Raman. Interviewed by Nine News (whose reporter staked out the car park), he accused Annastacia Palaszczuk and former CHO, now Queensland Governor, Jeannette Young of exaggerating his condition. He was also asked if he regretted not being vaccinated:
Obviously a man of unflappable disposition, he also showed he was a damned good sport. He said he was sorry for ignoring the state’s border control rules – though he harmed precisely nobody by doing so – and announced a new personal goal: “My aim is to be Queensland’s public friend No.1.” The invented villain of this shameful episode turns out to be the most admirable person involved. Never take the word of Premiers, bureaucrats or newspapers that calumniate people without even talking to them. The propensity of officials to lie – coupled with the belief that dishonesty is now a pious obligation – is destroying the nation.
