“Prime Minister Dominic Perrottet and Opposition Leader Chris Minns also face the most serious question of all: In a moment of deadly crisis and a moral disaster looming, the men who gave themselves the as leaders of the state were they of sufficient caliber to confront evil? Have they done enough? The almost certain answer is no”, The Catholic weekly editorialized.
