  • Does an electronic tag meet the government's objective though? The idea is that you don't mix with anyone. What if the traveller stays at home, electronically tagged, but is visited there by dozens of other people...

  • The other states do / did not have foolproof systems either. They way it was spun at the beginning you would've believed that only Vic used private security.
