Australia is likely to be troubled by different rules and restrictions, across different states, for some time to come, according to a political lecturer.

Tom Elliott said it’s depressing the states weren’t on the same page and eager to reunite as soon as possible.

Dr Zareh Ghazarian, Politics Lecturer in the School of Social Sciences at Monash University, said he wasn’t expecting Western Australia or Queensland to change their thinking any time soon.

“Until those magical marker points are reached, you’d think it’s going to be the status quo,” he said.

He said the states were “wielding” power simply because they could.
