Recent days has seen the Premier Peter Gutwein perhaps put his first step wrong in more than four months.
Mr Gutwein's approach to tackling the coronavirus has been applauded from within Tasmania and afar.
But just last week, criticism of a hotel being allowed exemptions to fly in workers from the mainland was not well received by the Premier.
He was quick to say senior public servants should not be vilified for decisions made.
And on Monday, he said the community should not be second-guessing the State Controller.
In other news:
In theory, the State Controller should be following guidelines set by the Public Health and the Premier. In the same fashion the community followed different restrictions - recommended by public health and enforced by the state government - you would think entry into the state would have a similar model in terms of guidelines.
The issue wasn't helped by the fact Steve Old thanked his "contact book" for helping to get the workers into the state.
But it's hard to not question the process when people were denied exemptions to attend funerals of loved ones, but a hotel (that isn't looking at peak visitors any time soon) could have exemptions granted to complete work.
Meanwhile, in Launceston, one of the state's largest construction companies was making workers redundant due to the coronavirus.
It's been a really tough year for every, single Tasmanian. Many people have had to endure losses and welcome new life without the usual family support. Everyone has done so graciously with the understanding it was for the greater good.
But, it's OK to question the process when it doesn't quite seem right or fair. Particularly, when Tassie is preparing to recover and to do so is focusing on infrastructure developments to steer the economic recovery.
Surely, the Premier accepts this and should be open and candid, in the same manner when coronavirus was primarily a health concern.
