Andrews Government all talk and no action as crime crisis grips Victoria

Victorians are living in fear and the Andrews Government is all talk and no action in addressing the crime crisis as young gangs terrorise families.

Under Daniel Andrews, crime is up over 12% and gangs like Apex continue to terrorise the community with car-jackings, drive-by shootings and home invasions.

After failing to front the media for two days following the Moomba riots, Daniel Andrews belatedly said he would “smash” the Apex Gang.

Like most things Daniel Andrews says, it was all talk and no action.

It has become clear that as a result of a Premier who is soft on crime, the community faces a growing number of emboldened offenders who have no respect for authority and no concern for the consequences of their actions.

Victorians are living in fear and the Andrews Government is showing no leadership in addressing this crime crisis. Daniel Andrews, now is the time for action
