The Project’s Lisa Wilkinson has ripped into Gladys Berejiklian’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis in NSW. 

The TV personality accused the Premier of “doing nothing” after NSW recorded its worst day of the pandemic.

“I think I speak on behalf of just about everybody that is watching these press conferences at 11am every day — they are almost unwatchable,” she said on the program.

“The whole situation is completely farcical. On a day when NSW is recording its highest numbers of the pandemic, another family is grieving a loved one, Gladys Berejiklian makes no new restrictions.

“She’s doing nothing, the soft lockdown continues, and we’re all scratching our heads trying to work out if she’s not going to do anything more – why is she continuing with this same rhetoric?”

The Sydney-based presenter then confessed: “If Gladys Berejiklian isn’t up to the job, then she needs to step aside”.

“She’s stuffed this… that’s a technical term. We’re at that point where we need to use technical terms now, it is ridiculous.”

She added that “the problem” lies in the Premier’s insistence that there is “light at the end of the tunnel”.

“That light she can see at the end of the tunnel, we can all see it too – it’s a complete bin fire. And somebody else needs to step in.”

This comes as NSW recorded 681 new cases on Thursday – the worst day of the pandemic.

Wilkinson’s admission has subsequently received a mixed response online, with some agreeing with her and others disagreeing.
