The hotel quarantine contracts had the potential to make a few select security firm bosses very wealthy and very happy. Having received these contracts, those bosses would owe a lot to the union bosses that helped get them that work.
Victoria’s next election is only two years away. The union bosses, who support Labor, will be looking for donations to fund Labor’s re-election campaign. Surely, those security firm bosses will be expected to make generous donations to Labor at election time.
Millions have been made from hotel quarantine. Trades Hall and the Labor Government won’t be surprised when some of that taxpayer-money is used to re-elect Labor at the next state election.
Was that the plan all along?
