Aussie household goods store owner slams restrictions on unvaccinated people

The owner of an Australian household goods and beddings store chain denounced health restrictions against unvaccinated people. He reassured customers and staff that they will not be subjected to these “preposterous and ridiculous” rules.

Pillow Talk CEO and co-founder Heath Goddard expressed disagreement over the lack of transparency surrounding the medical advice used as a basis for these restrictions. He told Epoch Times: “Until it’s tested in court and we’ve got decent judges to attest and listen to the debate, we have a problem. We have a nation that is currently being ransacked from within.”

Goddard added that his company will not mandate Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines for employees. Similarly, unvaccinated customers will not be excluded or barred from entering Pillow Talk stores. “Anyone is welcome to come into my business, vaccinated or unvaccinated. I certainly have not mandated any person in my company to get vaccinated. I know the dangers there,” he said.

The household goods retail chain executive’s comments followed a Nov. 9 announcement by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk that once the local population hits 80 percent vaccination rate – expected to be on Dec. 17 – unvaccinated Queenslanders would face new restrictions. Currently, both injected and non-injected residents are permitted to mingle freely.

A 7NEWS report said only those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine will be allowed in bars, restaurants, pubs, cafes, music festivals, stadiums, museums, libraries, hospitals, prisons and elderly care facilities once the restrictions come into effect. Face masks will no longer be required in indoor settings once the new rules become effective, it added. Palaszczuk did not mention a particular end date for the restrictions.


“This is both a reward for the fully vaccinated and precaution for when the borders open and we will see more cases in our community. People deserve to know that they can go to these places and know that they are safe,” the Queensland premier said.

Australia’s medical tyranny worse communist governments

Goddard is not the only Australian entrepreneur critical of the approach authorities use to keep the pandemic at bay. Cafe owner Philip Di Bella, who owns Coffee Commune in Brisbane, previously said he will not bar unvaccinated Australians from visiting his establishment. Currently, both injected and non-injected customers are permitted to enter retail outlets.

“It won’t be happening in my venue, I can assure you. The Coffee Commune [at Bowen Hills] will not discriminate,” Di Bella said in a video.

The cafe owner also criticized the insidious push toward totalitarianism in Australia. “What has this world come to? Is it something that we’re prepared to let happen, is it? If you support them mandating something like this … that you have your human rights taken away on where you can eat, drink, associate [and] go based on whether you are vaccinated or not – then you’ve got rocks in your head and this country has gone mad.”

According to Di Bella, the issue was not about vaccines. “You want to be vaccinated, you be vaccinated. If you don’t, you don’t. You take the health precautions that you need for yourself. This is about human rights, this is about dictatorship. Politicians work for the people.”

Goddard told Epoch Times that he was “also on the same wavelength” as Di Bella. The Pillow Talk CEO commented on the health measures Palaszczuk announced: “I can’t pick on [her] one-off announcement – the whole thing from start to finish has been a complete and utter disaster.”

“I can’t talk to the premier, the health minister or anyone else; they won’t talk to you. There’s no discussion, it’s just ‘We’re going to do this.’ It’s a totalitarian direction.” (Related: Australia government threatens its own citizens: No freedom until you comply with vaccine shot quotas.)

According to Goddard, Eastern Europeans living in Australia shared with him that the totalitarianism they left in Europe is now in the country they immigrated to. “Since when do we have totalitarian directions in Australia? We’ve got them now. We’re worse than communist Czechoslovakia. It’s ridiculous, and yet people are going along with it,” he said. has more stories about Australia’s totalitarian approach in handling the COVID-19 pandemic.
