Dictator Dan Andrews deadly policies must end as sadly suicide rates escalate.
By Ros Harby
Here is just one heartbreaking story from an Australian family shared on Facebook.
My name is Ros Harby & I live in a rural town in NSW. The reason I’m writing this which I find very hard as my heart is broken, is I need to get it out there. Four weeks ago I came home to find two policewomen in my kitchen & my husband crying. My son Ryan my beautiful boy had committed suicide in Victoria. Ryan suffered from bipolar & with all this lockdown loss of business, unable to see his children I would say it just became too much. So indirectly coronavirus killed my son. We had to get permission to attend his funeral then travel to Geelong 1000kls. We couldn’t have anything after, so we stood in the carport & hugged our grandchildren & friends. Now we come to the point of coming back to NSW. We come to the border offer our papers my sons license was checked no one checked ours. We drove home I called the police to let them know we were back (took that on our own back). As we didn’t want to spend one day in quarantine then we had to. No one from government services once checked on us. We could have traveled anywhere in NSW no one would have known. My other son & family flew back to ql. They had to stay at a hotel at their cost. They were tested for the virus twice 1st day & day 9 my poor granddaughters had to go through this twice why I have no idea as the first test came back negative, as did the 2nd. (We were not offered a test in NSW) I had to request one, so I could visit my friend in the hospital. It was only so negative. So here we have people coming back from NSW not haven’t been tested not checked up on, in Queensland, they test you twice. We were also told by the owner of the funeral service that suicide was much higher than what the coronavirus is killing and if nothing is done there will be a lot more. Why are we having all these different rules? We hugged people from hot spots not one person contracted the virus. I’m angry all these state governments are playing politics with our children lives. If you have family or friends who suffer from mental illness please watch them. They could make out they are ok but you need to check on them. The government says here is a phone number ring this not good enough, doesn’t work. They need to have something in place at the hospitals. This is what the Government of Victoria is doing to our families. This lockdown needs to stop they need to look after the elderly & vulnerable & let young people have their lives back & they need to do it now before more young people take their lives.
