Premiers from QLD, Victoria and NSW join Q&A

Source: ABC

The COVID-19 crisis has seen a powerful set of leaders emerge in Australia – our state Premiers. We’re turning to them daily for health advice, updates on restrictions and information regarding what our new normal will look like. They’re driving the big decisions and making plans under pressure. And in some states, their popularity is soaring.

This week on Q+A, Premiers Daniel Andrews and Gladys Berejiklian join the panel, and we’ll cross live to Queensland Premier Annastasia Palaszczuk.

They join us on a critical day for the country – Queensland and NSW will begin phasing in face to face learning and Victoria’s state of emergency is due to lapse. In other states students have been back in the classroom for several weeks and businesses are continuing to re-open. 

Each state is easing out of lockdown at a different pace and under a different plan. So who’s getting it right? And why is Western Australia’s Mark McGowan now the most popular premier in the land?

Joining Hamish on the panel live:

Dan Andrews, Premier of Victoria

Gladys Berejiklian, Premier of New South Wales

With a live cross to:

Annastacia Palaszczuk, Premier of Queensland
