The Spectator UK asked the question “Will there be more COVID marshals than East German Stasi secret police?” These new bureaucrats have essentially become the behaviour police, enforcing social distancing and other such nonsense.

DAN Andrews’ and his Labor Party regime in Victoria have a nasty new surprise for the people under his so-called road to freedom – East German Stasi-style state supported snitches to harass the unvaccinated and enforce COVID tracking and tracing.

They are to be appointed everywhere – at gymnasiums, health clubs, fitness centres, yoga and dance studios, indoor basketball courts, at golf and tennis clubs, basketball centres, rifle ranges, community facilities, theatres, cinemas (including drive-in cinemas), art galleries and museums, arenas, stadiums, amusement parks, aquariums or zoos, convention centres, casinos, brothels, nightclubs, churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, funeral homes or crematoriums, real estate inspections and auctions.

They’re already in the UK and they’ll be coming to every Australian state, unless the people – employers and employees and the general public – boycott them. But no doubt there are legions of lily-livered employers and power tripping employees to fill the roles.

Cairns News has received reports of a Victorian regional library barring unvaccinated people and others being refused medical procedures such as ultrasound or other treatments for serious illnesses. “Today we counted 10 COVID marshal cars all coming from the same direction. They are the Brown Shirts of the current age. Poor businesses get harassed and patrolled regularly,” a woman posted on social media.

“I was not even allowed to sit outside at a cafe the other day because I have only had one jab!” a woman from Bendigo posted. “They’re asking all over Lillydale (a Melbourne suburb),” another said. “Got turned away four times because my next jab isn’t due until Friday.”

This from people who are not even refusing shots, but who have been forced – against the federal Privacy Act 1988 – to disclose their medical status and denied entry to public facilities based on that status.

So who makes up this new Brown Shirt army of Andrews dictatorship enforcers? You the employer and you the employee. Both are being forcibly co-opted into this bureaucratic terrorist network.

Employers must appoint one or more workers as a COVID marshal who is responsible for monitoring compliance with the work premise’s “COVIDSafe Plan” as dictated by state bureaucrats and other “industry specific obligations”.

The employer must ensure the COVID marshal completes training in accordance with Victorian Department of Health guidance, have the COVID marshal at the work premises whenever workers are on-site and keep records of duty rosters for the COVID marshal.

A background article from the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner on vaccination and privacy rights as an employee is very clear that medical status is protected by privacy law. “Consent must be freely given and constitute valid consent. This means that your employer cannot pressure or intimidate you to provide information about your vaccination status where they are relying on your consent as the lawful basis for collecting it.

“Your employer should provide you with adequate information about what information will be collected, why it is required and what it will be used for, prior to you giving consent. Your employer should also tell you whether the information will be disclosed to any third parties.”

But does Andrews respect Commonwealth law? Not at all. He only respects law that cements power to himself and his circle of quislings, such as the universally condemned Pandemic Powers Bill that he will push through the Upper House with sleazy pork barrelling deals with The Greens, The Reason (Treason?) Party and the Animal Justice Party.
