Small Business Owner ‘infuriated’ By Queensland’s Double Standards On Border

Fashion designer and small business owner Fleur Richardson says the Queensland government’s double standards on border exemptions are “infuriating” after the families of NRL players were let into the state.

Ms Richardson has been forced to manage her business remotely from the New South Wales side of the border because she is unable to get an exemption to cross into Queensland.

“It’s infuriating and it’s a double standard and it just makes me dislike the sport even more just based on that,”

she told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“When you see 20,000 people within the Tweed Shire impacted by this – both sides as well – and it’s everyday people wanting to just earn an honest living and they can’t get through to their jobs or their businesses to keep operating and then this complete breach … it just doesn’t make sense and it smacks of double standards.”
