COVID spitters are grubs, idiots, and lowlife: Gunner

 

Chief Minister Michael Gunner in a statement less than an hour ago announced police powers to impose on-the-spot fines of $5495, and he called alleged offenders grub, idiot, and lowlife. Power and water prices for Territory businesses will be slashed by 50% and mandatory quarantine arrangements will be formalised. New measures will be brought in during a special session of Parliament on Friday, with some Members attending remotely.
