A leaked in-house video featuring the bureaucrats in charge of the bungled hotel quarantine operation congratulating themselves for their handling of the situation has emerged this morning.

In the video, leaked to the Herald Sun, staff from Global Victoria, the agency in charge of overseas trade missions, boast of their successful handling of quarantine.

About question
There are these four ways of answering questions. Which four? There are questions that should be answered categorically [straightforwardly yes, no, this, that]. There are questions that should be answered with an analytical (qualified) answer [defining or redefining the terms]. There are questions that should be answered with a counter-question. There are questions that should be put aside. These are the four ways of answering questions.
A question is an utterance which typically functions as a request for information, which is expected to be provided in the form of an answer. Questions can thus be understood as a kind of illocutionary act in the field of pragmatics or as special kinds of propositions in frameworks of formal semantics such as alternative semantics or inquisitive semantics. Questions are often conflated with interrogatives, which are the grammatical forms typically used to achieve them. Rhetorical questions, for example, are interrogative in form but may not be considered true questions as they aren’t expected to be answered. Conversely, non-interrogative grammatical structures may be considered questions as in the case of the imperative sentence “tell me your name”.

Neil Mitchell says there’s one very big question raised by the video, which needs to be answered urgently.

The big question Neil Mitchell has after seeing the leaked video …

“Who the hell put them in charge?,” the 3AW Mornings host asked.

“Nobody is talking about infection control, it’s all about delivering food … These public servants are used to being in charge of junkets, of promotional conferences.

“Suddenly they were running a life and death process!

“There’s more to it as well: nobody mentions security. Were these people responsible for it?

“Did anybody have the faintest clue about infection control? … and who made the decision to put this lot in charge?

“You didn’t do well, guys. Somewhere, somehow, someone stuffed up really badly.”
