The Victorian Ombudsman will not refer the Labor Party's so-called "red shirts rorts" to the anti-corruption watchdog or police, after a fresh report into the scandal found no evidence Premier Daniel Andrews facilitated the scheme.

Today the 5th August 2020 is the anniversary of the day Andrews launched the sixth and most viciously over the top lockdown to break the transmission of COVID. It was supposed to run for seven days but it stretched to seventy seven days . There was an 8pm curfew - people were pinged for putting out their rubbish bin at 8.15pm, they were locked in their  homes for 22 hours a day , travel was limited to 5 km from your home , only one member of your household was allowed to go shopping , you were banned from sitting in a park or walking along the beach and children's playground swings were chained. 

At that time in Victoria there were five to six cases a day and no deaths, yet the lockdown ended when there were more than 2000 cases a day. Today in Victoria cases are around 10,000 a day with between 110 and 40 deaths a day, yet Andrews has not re-introduced any lockdown . Why you may ask ? Andrews is scared that an anti lockdown backlash could cost him government at the up coming state election later this year, although the way the Victorian Liberals are travelling at the moment, Andrews could be up on any criminal charge you want to name ,and he still is a shoe-in to win that election.

There were no vaccines 2 years ago, people were at the mercy of Delta so they went to the centuries old means of controlling pandemics, isolation and masking. How many lives were saved? Morrison claimed 40,000.

Now there are plenty of vaccines and anyone who chooses to not get vaccinated or boosted does it at their own risk.

PT, Okay I got that date wrong, the sixth lockdown was on the 16th August last year. here is the press release from the Premiers department 

Extended Melbourne Lockdown to Keep Victorians Safe



16 August 2021

Due to the ongoing level of community transmission of coronavirus in Victoria, the current lockdown across Melbourne will be extended and a curfew will be put in place across metropolitan Melbourne.

After almost two weeks of restrictions in Victoria, it’s clear the number of coronavirus cases out in the community is still too high, it’s spreading too far and there are too many exposure sites cropping up every day.

I presume you meant 2022?

On 5-8-2021 only 3.5 million doses had been administered in Victoria. Now there are 16.3 million. Not much protection a year ago.

On the 5-8-21 820 of Australia's 932 deaths were in Victoria and your mob, led by Peta Credlin had already tried to get Dan locked up because of it.

What a disaster the vic oppo is LOL Sort yourselves out please, for the good of the state

The ALP on 60.5% (up 1% point from early July) has increased its election-winning lead in Victoria over the L-NP on 39.5% (down 1% point) on a two-party preferred basis, according to a special Roy Morgan Snap SMS Poll conducted from Thursday August 11 – Saturday August 13, 2022.

Fun fact: Labor has been in power 29 of the last 40 years in Victoria and with the Liberal Party being decimated in May losing all their blue ribbon seats there is nothing to suggest they can turn it around on a state level in 100 days.

North Melbourne are closer to a premiership than the Vic Libs winning an election.

New analysis shows Victoria's Suburban Rail Loop would cost far more than the government's estimate

Victoria's Parliamentary Budget Office says the first two stages of the Suburban Rail Loop will cost $200 billion to build and operate by 2084-85. The government put total construction costs for the project at $50 billion. ABC Ouch
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

That will not worry Dan in the least,  if he happens to win the upcoming election, in which he is odds on, he will resign from parliament half way before the following election with a healthy parliamentary pension and some cushy job from one of his 'business " mates  that has benefited from his policies over his time as premier.

Gee I'd love to be a fly on the wall at your up coming luncheon. I have images of Statler and Waldorf from the muppets in my head - love your contributions though so keep up the good work

Statler and Waldorf are a pair of Muppet characters best known for their cantankerous opinions and shared penchant for heckling. The two elderly men first appeared in The Muppet Show in 1975, where they consistently jeered the entirety of the cast and their performances from their balcony seats.
