When I see surveys like this I start to think the 'never' option is firming up as favourite. I have a neighbour who was born in Dunedin and moved to Australia when she was 13. She is around 80 now, has not been back to Dunedin ('too bloody cold') or anywhere else outside Australia since. She loves the closed borders because she says it is great to be able to walk around Sydney without hordes of foreign tourists and hopes they stay closed forever.Surveys like this are not going to convince the government to open our international borders in a hurry.
Only 7 per cent of voters back the idea of expanding the existing hotel quarantine system to allow more people to enter the country.www.smh.com.au
