States of Emergency and stated emergencies

Two days ago, I found out the real reason behind this SoE. I was truly shocked, and in my enlightenment, I can fully agree with this government’s stance.

It has nothing to do with the unions’ posturing, nor with petty crime. Yes, raids are being carried out, and people are rounded up; which is also good. But there are things going on behind the scenes that make all this pale in comparison. And which make the negative comments and negative attitudes towards the government insignificant.

In the interim until an explanation is presented (promised at the opening of Parliament), I will just continue to support the actions being taken as very necessary at this time.
