Looking at the various crises assailing the Victorian government, veteran political marketing strategist Toby Ralph sums up Premier Daniel Andrews' predicament thus:

There’s no shortage of angry businesses going broke, terrified individuals submerged in debt, frustrated teens going stir crazy, tin-hatted 5G deep state conspiracists and angle-hungry media getting stuck into Andrews, so he must be wondering why he took the job.

As it turns out, the sentiment could be extended to any politician in this era of COVID-19. Could there have been a week with more state governments in distinct crisis all at once?
