Annastacia Palaszczuk has again lost her cool under pressure about when she will finally open the border, saying she was 'sick of being attacked'.
The Queensland premier repeated unverified claims that her state would be hit with a deadly Covid outbreak if its opened up at 80 per cent vaccination.
She then played the victim when this was put under scrutiny and and she was pressed for detail on when she would actually allow NSW and Victoria in.
'Do you want that? Do you want that?'
'I don't understand this constant criticism of Queensland doing well. I will always stand up for this state, I am sick of being attacked for Queensland doing a great job, and Queenslanders doing a great job.'
Ms Palaszczuk implied Queensland health system would be in crisis like NSW if the border was opened.
This was despite the issues with NSW's hospitals being caused by an outbreak that was caused by barely anyone being vaccinated three months ago.
'There are very serious issues here, the hospitals in NSW are going to be overwhelmed next month,' the premier said.
'I don't want that for Queensland, that is why we have tough border measures in place and that is why I want people to get vaccinated, to protect our freedoms.'
'I'm sick of constantly being attacked for doing the right thing,' Ms Palaszczuk told reporters at Thursday's Covid update press conference
Ms Palaszczuk repeated her mantra that the 80 per cent threshold would be different for different states, despite her agreeing to the national plan.
'In Victoria, at 80 per cent, they will be allowed 30 people to visit for Christmas dinner. Here, Queenslanders can have 100 people over,' she said.
'I'm sick of constantly being attacked for doing the right thing.'
The press conference started with Ms Palaszczuk announcing two new Covid cases in Queensland.
