Wanted to start this as an unbiased post. The China secrecy and the real status of the projects under the ALP in Victoria at present would be creating some serious heartburn for the premier. Is the opposition putting enough pressure on the ALP Government? Can Chairman Dan get past the China Problem?
Unbiased post. Well a good start would be to not refer the Premier as Chairman Dan!
Knowing about the Belt and Road Initiative I have some serious misgivings about Victoria joining it. Dan Andrews has made some missteps in his tenure for sure. Is it enough to make me want to vote for Michael O'Brien. H E L L N O !
Because quite simply Dan Andrews believes that everyone regardless of colour, gender, sexual orientation etc. are equal. He concentrated on Investment and Jobs, Jobs and Jobs.
Matthew Guy, aided and abetted by Michael O'Brien, David Hodgetts, David Davis, that Tim Tosser member for Kew with Scott Morrison ran a xenophobic campaign targeting gangs and specifically African Gangs. They were going to bring in Racial Profiling into policing. As someone who was sometimes targeted by the SUSS laws in the UK, that is simply terrible. The police would stop you on the suspicion of sweet f.a. Try having to handle that on numerous occasions, getting stopped because you are simply walking whilst being black. That is bull$..t. That was so on the nose with some Liberals, that when I went to cast my vote, the Liberal Candidate for Brighton James Newberry felt the need to come and speak to me. Newberry and Pesutto are Traditional Liberals, good of heart, not the Neo Conservative Protestant evangelists that inhabit the LNP nowadays.
The Liberals got a good kicking at the ballot box and it was no more than they deserve. For me the fact that Andrews is Premier means that I can walk the streets without the fear of being targetted simply because of my race. And I thank him for that.
Mike Pompeo (What an idiot) is threatening Australia because of the Victorian Governments involvement with China. Really Mike? Well he will have to do that with nearly every Trading Bloc and Nation on this planet. If you think that the Neo Conservatives would not be making Overtures to China, because that market is simply huge and is an expanding economy, you are surely mistaken. Granted the Premier could have been more transparent.
As long as Michael O'Brien is Opposition leader, The Liberal/National Coalition in Victoria are worth nothing.
