Wakeling: Labor’s Gonski Black Hole

Tuesday 28 April 2015


Labor’s Gonski black hole

Daniel Andrews is an excuse-making machine.

Now he is claiming a ‘Gonski black hole’.

Tellingly, the ninth paragraph of the report in The Age said:

“The government also did not provide any documents backing its claims of a school funding black hole.”

The Coalition Government delivered record funding for Victorian schools – $9.2 billion for school education in 2014/15 – which was $1 billion more than Labor’s last Budget in 2010.

It is breathtaking audacity from Daniel Andrews to make these claims. Labor has recently wasted at least $640 million on the East West Link compensation on top of the annual costs to taxpayers for running the desalination plant.
