The laws to be passed by Parliament enable differentiation of ‘classes of person’ to enable the Premier, of his own unilateral decision, to have a "vaccine economy" with the medical aparteid of Victorians and vaccine mandates in certain industries, events, setttings determined arbitrarrily by the Premier in unlimited 3 month blocks.
These "classes of person" can be identified by their “characteristics, attributes or circumstances” under the new Pande legislation, which doesn't even require a pandemic to exist, but so long as the Premier decides in his own mind that there exists a pandemic like risk, even with no cases, these new permanent laws come into effect.
"The Premier would wield unprecedented power to declare pandemics and enforce emergency laws under legislation set to replace Victoria's controversial state of emergency framework." - says Herald Sun State Politics Editor and Former chief court reporter Shannon Deery who leaked this information on Twitter yesterday.
The declaration of a pandemic management area as we have seen in the current emergency powers regime can be State Wide or target regions such as Melbourne with the wall of steel separating it from Regional Victoria or the recent targeted lockdowns of Sheparton and Ballarat regions.
It can be directed at "events" as opposed to regions so if you attend a protest rally and are identified as a "protestor" then that may be a "class of person" identifed by the Prtemier.
It can be by an activity you have undertaken or are undertaking, such as making anti-government commentary on social media or in public.
Finally it can even target your characteristics, attributes or circumstances enabling the Premier of the day to determine whether you can be excluded from Society based on these broad undefined terms such as "characteristics, attributes or circumstances" could mean vaxxed or unvaxxed or it could mean employed or unemployed or self-employed only limited by the Premiers imagination.
A pandemic order can be on any attribute identified in the Equal Opportunity Act, so it can be based on sex, age, employment status, education status, provision of goods and services, sale of land, accomodations, club membership, Pensioners, Superannuation status, Charity membership, religious affiliation, religious bodies. Religious schools. Religious beliefs or principles. Legal incapacity and age of majority. for the Protection of health, safety and property and the aged and concessions and special needs persons.
Welcome to the "new normal" the Premier has been talking about.
