West Aussies want hard border gone

With a recent poll showing tremendous enthusiasm for setting a reopening date, West Aussies are losing their patience with the harsh frontier of the state.

Nearly three quarters of those polled were found to want Premier Mark McGowan to set a provisional date for travel to and from the rest of Australia in a poll conducted by Ipsos for Tourism Council WA.

A group of 804 West Australians were asked if, according to health advice at the time , the State Government should set a provisional deadline to open the borders.

Overall, 72 % of people responded yes, with just 28% opposing. A travel bubble between WA and states with zero to no population transmission of COVID-19 was endorsed by 70% of individuals.

It comes as Mr. McGowan yesterday congratulated Victoria on registering zero virus cases, describing it for “all of Australia” as “fantastic” news.

“Well done Victoria – thanks to you, Australia’s future looks bright,” he said, suggesting WA was a step closer to being open to the State.
