I think Victorians gave him a clear mandate for further authoritarianism and they set the bar for accountability so low that Andrews can easily step over it.

Interesting times ahead...
His comeuppance will be all the more sweeter.

Every single government in this country has far bigger fish to fry in the wake of the cerveza sickness and its treatment, they will be able to do nothing but struggle to deal with the consequences of this treatment. Their cries of amnesty will fall on deaf ears...

As for the millenial retards, they will be the first to bitch and moan when it all goes to shit and their utopias never eventuate.

The millennials are in ascendency, they will be the power brokers of politics for years to come and opportunist (all) politicians like Andrews will cater to them or face political oblivion...

The die has been cast...western societies have probably reached the apogee of economic wealth and the highest standards of living, its all downhill from here but it will be a sacrifice that the millennials will make and they will be ok with their choice because they are subscribers to a world view of rainbows and unicorns...it's a cult.
This is all true, but millennials are soft and they're generally not the type of people to see things through, especially when it gets hard. They're literally going to turn the lights off to "save" the climate. But as soon as they can't charge their smart phones the screeching will begin. Imagine what will happen when they can't cook or heat themselves.

It will be interesting to see how Gen Z and Alpha respond to the mess that millennials create, given they're still guided by Boomers and Gen X (the parents and grandparents of the Z and Alpha generation).

Definitely soft, they're a generation that has seldom experienced economic hardship, all they've known are ridiculously low interest rates, easy access to monetary credit and near full employment...they enjoy manic levels of narcissistic validation via social media and have useless collections of participation awards which creates a very unique and skewed worldview of what is possible, the complete disconnect between expectations vs. reality.

As the fallout of covid mismanagement money printing policies settles and the world plunges into the chasm of recession I would expect the millennial house of cards to collapse and it will be brutal and ugly

I saw a funny comment after the recent FTX collapse where somebody said that this is what happens when - the nerds don't get bullied at school...and reminds me of the quote -

“Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times.”

Lets hope there's something better coming through the pipeline...
