NSW Government shocked that State founded by convicts is struggling with lockdown

SYDNEY, NSW – The NSW Premier has expressed surprise that Sydney residents are having difficulties maintaining strict COVID lockdown despite their convict heritage.

Currently, NSW has failed to stop a COVID Delta outbreak after numerous reports of residents breaking lockdown restrictions imposed by the Government.

The Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, indicated that NSW residents should be doing better in light of their history.

“From the arrival of the very First Fleet, NSW has been driven by the two core principles of being locked up and unquestionably obeying Government authority.”

“Therefore I just don’t understand why residents are having such an issue with not being allowed to move about freely and live their own lives.”

“If it was good enough for their derelict and criminal ancestors, then surely it is good enough for them.”

The Premier went on to announce that she will be including in all online homeschooling classes a special pre-recorded lesson where she will personally teach the benefits and joys of convict living in the early 1800’s.

“One of the issues is we have forgotten in our classrooms is our rich historical convict heritage.”

“I blame the intellectuals and elites who have somehow put the idea into Australian’s heads that they have inalienable human rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

“We should instead be proud of our inherited prison mentality, of deeply limited freedoms, of strict obedience and accepting our poor lot in life. That is the truly Australian way!”

The Premier has further indicated that she will be seeking to remove any reference to Indigenous history from the NSW education curriculum, due to the fact that Indigenous examples of ‘unencumbered and unrestrained freedom to walk the land’ were unhelpful and not welcome elements of the current Australian identity.
