‘If you’re going to break the law, do it well’: The Project’s Waleed Aly jokingly offers ‘advice’ on how to get away with lockdown parties

There are tough penalties for those breaching lockdown rules in Sydney. 

And discussing how one such illegal gathering was busted on Monday, The Project’s Waleed Aly offered some very tongue-in-cheek advice. 

The panel had been discussing NRL team St George Illawarra’s Covid-19 breach after it emerged that Paul Vaughan held a Saturday night barbecue.

Steve Price wondered why the team would even risk having a party at all.  

‘You wonder, when someone says – hey Paul coming to your joint for a barbecue after the game. Wouldn’t someone say – we are in lockdown?’ 

Peter Helliar replied:  ‘The reason they got busted because of noise complaints. They weren’t trying to do it quietly.’

Waleed then chimed in, joking: ‘If you are going to break the law, do it well.’  

His co-host Carrie Bickmore added, laughing: ‘Did you hear that? Waleed’s advice!’ 

Waleed then shrugged and rolled his eyes, making it clear that the suggestion was just a joke.

It comes as the NRL is investigating Vaughan’s house party after NSW Police issued $1,000 fines the 13 players and Vaughan’s wife Ellie for breaching stay-at-home orders after St George Illawarra star Paul Vaughan hosted 11 teammates at home.

Police were called due to a noise complaint and issued fines to everyone there, including Corey Norman, Zac Lomax, Josh McGuire, Jack Bird, Kaide Ellis, Blake Lawrie, Matt Dufty, Daniel Alvaro, Tyrell Fuimaono, Gerard Beale, and Josh Kerr. 

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian criticised the players, claiming they jeopardised the rest of the state which is trying to get out of lockdown.
