victoria premier slams selfish driver who refused to tell police where she was going at checkpoint

The driver branded ‘dumb and disrespectful’ for refusing to tell police where she was going at a Victorian checkpoint has copped a mouthful from the state’s premier.

Daniel Andrews on Saturday labelled the woman’s actions as ‘selfish’, confirming police were working hard to find her and others evading strict stay at home rules.

Eve Black, who lives in the coronavirus capital, caused nationwide outrage on Thursday shared footage of herself driving past an officer at a police barricade.

She was seen palming off the officer who stopped to ask her where she was headed and why she was attempting to leave Melbourne.

Instead of complying and adhering to Victoria’s latest rules, Ms Black said she did not need to share the information.

The frustrated officer eventually waved her through as she sped off with a grin on her face. 

‘I would simply say they are selfish choices,’ Mr Andrews said on Saturday, when asked about footage showing several Victorians refusing to comply with lockdown rules.

‘They are not even in the interests of the people themselves.

‘Because it will just mean these rules and this sort of conflict, which is completely unnecessary by the way, but these rules will be in place longer if people continue to behave that way.’

Mr Andrews confirmed Victorian Police were working hard to locate a person in a ‘well-publicised case’, and would fine the individual   if they did not comply with regulations.

His comments come as the state recorded an additional 357 cases and five deaths on Saturday.

There are 3,995 active cases across Victoria, and 61 deaths since the pandemic begun.

‘That person will either have a lawful reason to be in regional Victoria or that person won’t, and if they don’t, then Victoria Police, I am confident, will fine them,’ he said.

His comments also follow former treasurer Wayne Swan on Friday criticising the driver for not complying with police.

‘It makes me angry watching that, it’s dumb and disrespectful,’ he said on The Today Show on Friday morning.

‘At the end she says she feels good. Well, she won’t feel too good in ICU.’ 

Residents living in the locked-down areas are only allowed to leave their homes for four approved reasons - food, exercise, work or study, or medical care (pictured, Victorian police on Thursday question a man for not having a mask on)

Mr Andrews hoped Ms Black’s actions did not take away from the fact a majority of Melburnians were doing the right thing by adhering to the stage three rules.

Those who breach orders will be hit with a $1,652 fine with 262 infringements already given out at checkpoints since July 8. 

‘Everyone is wearing masks. It is a small number of people who aren’t. That is the wrong choice, it is also not a very smart choice,’ Mr Andrews said. 

Ms Black’s video is one of many circulating on social media where drivers encourage people to challenge the lockdowns, which have been imposed to stem the spread of COVID-19.

A Victorian driver who was pulled over at a lockdown checkpoint argued with police for 20 minutes about the legality of the operation, before claiming COVID-19 was not contagious and refusing to hand over his licence.

James Bartolo shared footage of the altercation on Facebook on Sunday after he was pulled over at a routine checkpoint while travelling in an unregistered Mustang.

He refused to hand over his licence – which police later learned was suspended – and eventually told the officers that they’d pulled him over unlawfully by following ‘dopey Dan’s false legislation’, in reference to Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews.

Mr Bartolo revealed he did not believe coronavirus was contagious and argued that it was a hoax.

Coronavirus: ‘Bunnings Karen’ puts ‘spell’ on Daniel Andrews

coronavirus bunnings karen puts spell on daniel andrews

A coronavirus denier and self-described ‘psychic’ who slammed Daniel Andrews for his lockdown measures has cast a spell to remove him as Victorian premier.   

Lizzy Rose, dubbed ‘Bunnings Karen’, made headlines last month when she filmed herself clashing with staff at the hardware giant over mandatory face masks. 

Ms Rose, who uses her social media platform to spread dangerous conspiracy theories, shared a video of her performing a ‘vaccination burn’ to cast out the Victorian government, as well as mandatory jabs and face masks. 

‘Cast you and your agenda out. We say no to mandatory vaccinations against our will,’ she said in the footage posted on Sunday.

‘We burn away your evil agenda. We, the awakened people, say no to mandatory vaccinations. We cast you out.’

Ms Rose, who wore a black dress during the bizarre performance, was seen bent over a large black cauldron with a lit match held over a needle.

She chanted: ‘We cast out your evil agenda of cruelty, deception and control.

‘You are to leave government, you are to walk away from your power and your position for we cast you out.

‘Hail and farewell Daniel Andrews and blessed be.’

The anti-masker dramatically threw the match and needle into the cauldron and raised her arms into the air.

She then called for rain and ‘the heavens to open and bear down on us’.

‘Cleanse this government and all its ill will. Banish from state, territory, capital and the hill. Guardians of day and guardians of night,’ Ms Rose continued.

‘Great Mother Earth, in this cauldron of bounty, punish them, make them accountable by law, by honour. Make them hear and make them see and free our people.’

Ms Rose concluded by asking for restrictions, including mandatory masks, to be lifted and for the economy to be reopened.  

The self-proclaimed ‘witch’ uses her social media channels to encourage Victorians to stop wearing face masks. She has also filmed herself burning disposable face masks.

From 11.59pm on August 2, all Victorians have been required to wear a face covering when leaving their homes. Those who fail to follow the rule without a medical exemption can be fined $200.  

Despite stage four lockdown in Melbourne, Ms Rose has also bragged about breaking the restrictions to go for two-hour walks outside her 5km radius.

Ms Rose famously recorded herself inside the Bunnings store in Maribyrnong, in Melbourne’s west, where she planned to buy plant pots and items for her ‘Viking fire pit’.

Armed with a medical certificate exempting her from wearing the mandatory masks, she fronted confused staff members.

‘I went shopping in my local Bunnings where I’ve spent thousands of dollars over nearly 18 years and was rudely illegally denied customer service due to not wearing a facial mask, despite the fact that I produced a legal medical certificate of exemption,’ she posted after the stunt.

‘Management called the police, stating to police that my exemption was ‘bogus’ which is completely untrue.

‘This is absolutely disgusting treatment of a customer and a direct contradiction to Mr Daniel Andrews, the premier of Victoria’s, instructions stating that no person with a medical exemption is to be refused service, goods or products.’

The video showed Ms Rose referring to masked customers as ‘zombies’ as she walked without a mask through the aisles.

‘People are so very silly,’ she said. ‘And they’re so silly and it’s so very sad that they’re not evolved enough to see.’

Ms Rose then argued with a checkout operator before turning the video off.

As the drove hovered above, the optical illusion made their real bodies hard to spot as they hit the ball across the net. 

In the late afternoon sun the shadows appear to be the ones playing as they competitively pass the ball around. 

The amazing video looks like something from a computer game as the players run around on the sand.

The multi-million dollar win comes after a man from Liverpool in Sydney’s south-west took home $20million in the Powerball draw on July 30. 

The lucky winner said he would buy his parents a house and travel overseas when the coronavirus crisis settles. 

‘I can’t travel at the moment, but as soon as I can, I will be straight on a plane to Las Vegas!’ he said. 

‘There will be a few little splurges when I first get the money. I want to buy a ski boat and there will be a new car.

‘I have to spoil myself a little.’ 

The man said he was in ‘total shock’ after seeing the $20million in his online account.

‘My heart was racing. I was shaking!’ he said.

‘This changes everything for me and for my whole family!’
