Closing the border to Victorians because of a significant COVID-19 outbreak in Melbourne was her call.
Despite the enormous dislocation this caused to border communities, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian didn't resile.
Here on the Border, for month-after-month, the virus was a phantom threat - no more, no less.
IN OTHER NEWS:
We simply weren't about to unleash COVID-19 on the rest of NSW.
But, again, Berejiklian wouldn't budge, no matter the plea for compassion and understanding.
This was largely predicated on what she described as the "unknown" transmission of COVID-19 in the community.
What else could be done, she argued, than shut the border?
The oft-repeated yet conveniently forgotten fact was that what our community was put through had nothing to do with unknowns.
Rather, there was one big "known".
And that was allowing people in Albury-Wodonga and adjacent communities to continue to cross the border to simply go about their daily lives was not going to make any difference.
She's against the hard borders imposed by Victoria in the wake of Sydney's Northern Beaches outbreak and is pleading for an "open and compassionate" approach with the new school year almost upon us.
It has been quite staggering - but in some respects, not so - for her to speak out on border closures given the proverbial shoe is on the other foot.
"It has been tough ... where so many border communities exist, there is so much interaction between our communities," she said this week.
It's that very same point that was made repeatedly when it was your decision to put up the barriers.
Every time you intimated understanding, only to then maintain your clearly lacking-in-compassion approach.
