Queensland rebel Liberal senator says he will withhold vote on COVID issues

Right-wing Queensland Liberal Senator Gerard Renick has told Scott Morrison that he will withhold his vote from the coalition until various issues related to COVID are resolved.

Renick says there should be an “appropriate and fair” compensation plan for victims of “vaccine adverse events”, and the right should be upheld for those who have had an adverse event to refuse a second shot. .

In addition, no one should lose their job because they will not be vaccinated, Renick says in his letter.

Senator says domestic travel restrictions related to COVID should be abolished. And say that children do not need to get vaccinated.

The government has plans to cover the cost of injuries in excess of $5,000 resulting from “a proven adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccination.”

The program is funded by the Commonwealth to provide compensation for a small number of people who have had significant adverse reactions, giving them the option of legal action.

Renick wants the plan to be extended by providing compensation “from the first dollar spent.”

“In the last two weeks I have come to know that people have suffered serious and unplanned injuries as a result of the Covid vaccine. Many of these are not being accepted by the medical authorities who should help them. People who have been hurt by vaccines need immediate help,” he writes.

In a letter to Prime Minister Scott Morrison, he says, “You need to stop vaccine mandates, whether they are mandated by employers or state governments.

“If you say that the Commonwealth does not support compulsory vaccination, why are we paying and compensating for the vaccines being mandated by the state”.

“I am inundated with many Australians who are stressed about losing their jobs or getting mandatory vaccinations for their children.”

Facebook has put an information alert on several controversial senators’ postings about COVID and vaccines.

Recently in the Coalition parties room Renick reportedly threatened to withdraw his vote on the crucial legislation unless the government challenged Queensland’s border restrictions.
