Andrews shows that he doesn't care about the people of victoria unless it is a bad look for him. This whole ESTA thing is laughable. How can triple zero go from being very reliable for as long as I can remember to him putting in ESTA for whatever reason and the system becoming so bad. I have had to call triple zero twice in the past 6 months and the people on the phone's are terrible at their job. Whether it's lack of training or experience it's not good enough

It needs to be fixed.

Though getting in those well known lovers of public services the LNP may not be the answer.

Best case for Vic now would be LNP to become a minor party and it become a battle between greens and ALP.

Similar to California, as it’s so safe to ALP here they can get complacent.

But that seems to be the main rebuttal. If Andrews has stuffed something up, rather than addressing it, it seems to always go back to “but Guy wouldn’t have done much better” or “the health system has always been buggered”.
Shouldn't whoever is in charge do what is best for the people. I mean andrews stood up there for 100 days and acted like he cared about people's suffering and the welfare of 90 year olds dying with covid yet on the other hand hasn't saved the 90 year old from building more and better hospitals

Whilst ignoring that Dans been Premier for 8 years, 4 years as health minister and 19/23 years the Labor party has been in power. But it’s all Kennetts fault or the one term in the middle…

The Victorian Greens who just say ‘Yes Dan’ that would make things less complacent???

It seems a natural go to.

I was asked what Federal Labor would have done better when Covid hit, not that I ever mentioned it, just that I thought LNP handle/d it badly.

I don't have an issue with it. I rather like... but LAYBUH.

I laugh.

It will be very interesting when the unauthorised biography on Dan Andrews is released in coming months. Word is ALP is bracing itself for a disastrous fallout.

I thought it was already released and tried to download it a few days ago. I was a bit disappointed that it's not out for a while yet but I'm looking forward to reading it.

Why? I see no reason to suspect he will be, if anything today showed that Victorians have drunk the Kool Aid and believe everything that went wrong in Victoria wasn’t Dans fault.

Absolutely.

Victoria should be a Labor v Greens state.

Victorians hate the Liberal party? That's not "drinking the Kool Aid", it's just the politics of the state.

Sensible economically progressive governance.

Wrong. Melbourne love ALP/Greens. The rest of the state detest them. Andrews only has to appease the big city to win. Hence why in the regions he ducked us during lockdowns and he gives us nothing regionally. City focused campaigner.

The Liberal Party apparatchik on the ABC election coverage last night said that things will get worse for the Vic Libs - before they get worse again.
its an issue that is being played out in the state liberal parties of victoria, west aus and south aus (similar concerns have been noted in qld to)

dont - DONT - engage the unhinged religious right ..... michael kroger (and marcus bastiaan) has completely f$%ked the victorian liberal party ...... long may they suffer because of it
