Annastacia Palaszczuk’s controversial border restrictions with parts of NSW were vehemently defended by Anthony Albanese

The Labor leader flew from Sydney to Melbourne on Monday after the tough borders between the two states opened at midnight

Mr. Albanese will meet with Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews and participate in the Merri Outreach Support Service in Brunswick

“It’s good to have these face-to-face conversations and I look forward to meeting with Dan,” he said

“The truth is he did the right thing and the Victorians endured it well as a result of Prime Minister Andrews’ leadership”

When asked if Queensland should open its border to 32 areas in the greater Sydney area, Albanese Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk said she was doing a “great job”

“Nobody wants to see restrictions, but restrictions have kept Queenslanders safe,” he said

“I want to be able to travel and I want Australians to want to travel and I know Annastacia Palaszczuk does

“One of the things I will not do, and you have seen Labor opposition groups not do this, is not to make partisan comments”
