It’s almost as though the heads of all government departments don’t want to say anything regarding this situation... 🙄 Keep up the great work Rod!

nothing but lip service.... how disgraceful and insulting... again, no responsibility or care for the deliberate and calculated way they shredded peoples lives...

Good job Rod ! As usual govt hides behind each other & wont own up to their responsibilities ! They just keep passing the buck hoping you will go away ! This govt has no accountability !

Keep up the great work Rod. Keep the pressure on them. A pity, however, that the responses are always “beating around the bush” and totally non committal.

It’s taking to long to get them out of our lives It has just been a job for more bureaucrats

Well done Rod - keep at ‘em 👊

Bla bla bla...

All cut from the same cloth, nothing but bulldust spills from these people...
