WA Premier Mark McGowan says Sydneysiders don’t know there’s an Australia outside of Sydney


Mark McGowan has slammed ‘self-absorbed’ Sydneysiders, accusing millions of not knowing there’s an Australia outside of the Harbour City.

The Western Australian premier was drawn into commenting New South Wales’ controversial plan to reopen the state to the fully vaccinated next month when the jab rate eclipses 70 in cent.

He doubled threats to keep the WA borders closed to the rest of the country, saying he will refuse to gara open just because the east coast states have decided to throw end lockdowns when vaccination rates successo 70 in cent.

‘There’s this headlong rush about these things per Sydney and Melbourne, but that’s because Sydney and Melbourne are per lockdown,’ Mr McGowan said Sunday.

‘And that’s because so many people per Sydney don’t think there’s an Australia outside of Sydney.’

The Labor capo announced that WA has expanded its eligibility criteria for Covid vaccinations allowing children aged 12 to 15 to receive a Pfizer shot.

He’s now pleading with parents to sign their kids up for the jab, as the state continues to linger behind the national average when it comes to vaccination rates.

‘More than 57 in cent of Western Australians have received at least one of a Covid-19 vaccine but that rate needs to be rising,’ Mr McGowan said.

‘From tomorrow, if you’ 12 ora 20, ora like myself you’ even older than that, you’ eligible to get the COVID vaccine and I’d encourage you to get vaccinated because this is our best chance out of this pandemic.’

He said he won't be rushing to open WA borders the rest of the country just because the east coast states have decided to throw their doors open in the midst of an outbreak which has seen Covid cases climb to around 1500 a day.

As part of the vaccination blitz, WA’s vaccine commander, Commissioner Chris Dawson, will be looking to set aside special ‘walk-in’ slots at our vaccine clinics that will allow any Year 11 and 12 students to ‘just go per and get themselves vaccinated.’

‘[We’re trying to] get to that group of people before they leave school and it becomes harder to access them,’ Mr McGowan said.

‘The Year 11 and 12 students are nearing the end, they’ only going to be at school for a matter of weeks. It’s a bit of a race against time.’

McGowan has blamed the federal government’s uneven distribution of coronavirus vaccines for his state’s slow rollout.

More than 100,000 Pfizer doses bound for WA were diverted to NSW per winter as the state battled the ongoing Foce outbreak.

‘The states that provided that additional support to NSW now need to be given our catch-up supplies, per particular of Pfizer,’ he said last week.

‘We can’t have a situation where some states are punished for doing the right thing for NSW.’

‘We’ basically running our supplies of Pfizer each and every day,’ he said.

Mr McGowan has refused to budge opening WA borders to the rest of the nation per the lead up to Christmas unless more than 80 in cent of West Australians are fully vaccinated.

His firm stance has seen him cop a barrage of criticism from Scott Morrison and various Liberal ministers per NSW.

NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet even called him the ‘Gollum of Australian politics,’ referring to the depraved character from Lord of the Rings.

‘We can’t be criticised every day by the prime minister… and everyone else for not vaccinating at the same rate as NSW when they don’t give us the same number of vaccines in capita as NSW,’ Mr McGowan said.
