2GB host Ben Fordham has slammed Premier Gladys Berejiklian over the lockdown extension, saying the NSW community and businesses are at “breaking point”.
“People are at breaking point, businesses are at breaking point,” he said.
“And now the health advice – aren’t we sick of hearing about the health advice? The health advice insists on another week of lockdown. There are small businesses everywhere on their knees, they cannot deal with this again, but they’re being forced to.”
The talkback radio presenter said his call-in lines and text messages were “off the charts” with “white-hot rage” this morning from residents furious at reports Ms Berejiklian will extend the state’s Covid-19 lockdown by another week until Friday, July 16.
“This is just getting ridiculous now,” caller Michael told the program. “About 1500 people a year die of the flu. Did we shut the bloody city down?”
