Daniel Andrews: “It’s not my intention to tell the truth on tolls…”

On Jon Faine’s program this morning, the Andrews Labor Government declined to rule out tolls on the Eastern Freeway to pay for the North East Link.

Luke Donnellan’s office contacted Jon Faine’s program and used their government’s favourite weasel words that “it’s not our intention” to put a new toll on the Eastern Freeway.

Just like it wasn’t Daniel Andrews’ intention to waste $1.3 billion on cancelling the East West Link and just like it wasn’t their intention to build Sky Rail instead of rail under road. And also just like it wasn’t Daniel Andrews’ intention to introduce drug injecting rooms.

Daniel Andrews needs to categorically rule out tolls on the Eastern Freeway and stop using the weasel words of “not our intention”.

Despite living in Fitzroy North and near the ABC studios, Luke Donnellan declined to go on Jon Faine’s program this morning and instead used his media advisor as his human shield.
