Daniel Andrews and Lily D’Ambrosio finally get their way on Hazelwood

Daniel Andrews is a fraud when he cries crocodile tears about the closure of Hazelwood and its impact on the Latrobe Valley community.

As far back as 21 May 2011, Daniel Andrews attacked then Premier Ted Baillieu for not closing Hazelwood.

In the same month, Lily D’Ambrosio also attacked the then Liberal National Government, over its ‘disgraceful’ decision to keep Hazelwood fully operating.

As part of Daniel Andrews’ mission to close Hazelwood, he has tripled the brown coal royalty, ripping an extra $252 million out of our generators, to harm their viability and imposed an ideologically driven 40% renewable energy target designed to make our Latrobe Valley generators uncompetitive.

Make no mistake; Daniel Andrews did everything in his power to engineer the closure of Hazelwood.
