Of course it is he's the Premier.
Cancelled the East West link at a cost of $1B after he told the public before the election it wouldn't cost a cent now completely underfunded child protection system.
He's a first class......well, you know.

So there is nothing at all wrong with the previous government signing a contract that cost $1 billion to get out of even if no work is done ?

What sort of w@nkers sign a deal like that ? Answer: the sort of w@nkers who want to ensure that their donors come out laughing at the taxpayers expense no matter what happens.

Are people seriously saying that it costs $1 billion to prepare a tender for a construction project ? What about the tenderers who failed ?

Signing that contract just months before the election was a dirty grubby act to ensure that mates could suck at the public teat. The former Liberal government was a disgrace.

We needed the East West link and still do.
"""The East West Link has been singled out as a top priority by Australia's infrastructure umpire, bringing into question a decision by the Andrews government to spend hundreds of millions of dollars axing the contract for the road."""

Why did he need to get out of it at all ?
The w@ankers are Daniels and the Labour Govt, worse than w@ankers these criminals have let the child protection system run down so kids all over the state are suffering.....I hate his guts.

Mr Burns...In Rumpy's eyes anyone who is not a Green/Labor left wing Fabian Socialist are all wankers.

No doubt Andrews is a good Fabian (Communist).

A bit of research into the Victorian child protection system may help

There is "no question" some child deaths over the past three years would have been prevented if Victoria had a stronger child protection system, the state's Commissioner for Children and Young People (CCYP) has said.

The tabling of a damning report in Parliament found that children who had died after instances of family violence in Victoria had been let down by child protection and were victims of systemic service failings.

The Neither Seen nor Heard report called for services to improve their response to child victims of domestic violence and focus on them as victims in their own right.

The report looked at 20 child deaths in Victoria between 2011 and 2015, which were among 127 child death inquiries carried out by the Commission in that time period.
...

From the link quoted by Mr Burns

Victoria's child abuse hotline reportedly failed to answer 20,000 calls for help in an 18-month period with some people waiting two hours to speak with an operator.

Freedom of information documents obtained by News Corp suggest almost 57,000 calls to the Child Protection Crisis Line were not responded to between mid-2010 and late 2015.

Children Minister Jenny Mikakos insists the Andrews government has increased funding to the service "after years of neglect by the previous government".

"Labor has increased funding, resulting in a decrease in the number of abandoned calls and a significant reduction in waiting times," the minister says in a statement on Thursday.

The government says in the last six months of 2016 the percentage of abandoned calls dropped to six per cent, with the average waiting time cut to one minute and 11 seconds.




Andrews was elected in 2014, so fairness should dictate that the problem is a shared one between the current and former governments.

So please lets not go off the deep end and blame one person for an ongoing mess.

Yes I know but he's been in for 2 years and don't tell me it couldn't have been fixed - 20,000 calls unanswered ?????
I despise politicians with a passion all the way from this to Sussan Ley and Julie Bishop bludging off the taxpayer not to mention all the others who do likewise while kids go hungry.
but 20,000 calls to a child abuse hotline go unanswered ??? that has to top the lot for criminal neglect and I didn't see that reported on the ABC web site, it's a national scandal and should be headlines everywhere.

I will support anyone decent regardless of the party, I don't see anyone out there who has anyones interests at heart but their own. I'm surprised Derryn Hinch isn't all over this....perhaps he is.

I don't know who Australia's infrastructure umpire is, but I'm guessing he's some QANGO crony under the employ of the Federal LNP ruling party? The same LNP that played its role in trying to use Federal funds to promote a State election outcome?

Having said that, w@ankers are not the sole domain of one particular party political and your man didn't get to be a labor premier by being Mr Niceguy ... it is incredibly hard to rise through the Labor ranks on handshakes and old school tie. Labor is a party of knowitalls, educated or street brawler, they makes it hard to climb the ladder if you are a fool.

With Victoria being deskilled on the manufacturing front, will the link be obsolete in the not so distant future, or is it still an imperative to economic growth?
