DONE. FAIR. An insult to Victorians

Daniel Andrews’ new slogan is an insult to the many Victorians who have been unfairly impacted by his bullying and uncaring approach.

Many families and businesses are struggling under the weight of power bills that have skyrocketed under Labor’s policy to shut the Hazelwood power station.

Motorists sit in ever-growing congestion on our roads, costing our economy over $5 billion a year and now face the prospect of paying more tolls on roads that they may never drive on.

Victorian families now live in fear in their own homes, with a crime rate that has grown by over 20 per cent in the past two years.

Daniel Andrews made a “solemn promise” to not introduce new taxes. Eleven new taxes later, Victorians are now paying 20% more tax under Daniel Andrews.

Victorian taxpayers paid over $1.3 billion for Daniel Andrews’ politically motivated decision to tear up the East West Link contract.

CFA volunteers have been maligned, disrespected and pitted against their career colleagues.

Residents of Melbourne’s Southern and South Eastern suburbs have had the Sky Rail monstrosity forced on them, metres from their backyards, with little consultation.

Victorians have been done over by Daniel Andrews. How is that fair?
