Wooldridge: Andrews must stop his Buck Passing

Andrews must stop his Buck Passing

Jill Hennessy’s claim that Malcolm Turnbull is forcing the closure of Emergency Departments is just the latest attempt by the Andrews Government to blame the Federal Government for all of its failures.

If being Health Minister is all too hard for Jill Hennessy then Daniel Andrews should appoint somebody that is up to the job.

Daniel Andrews can issue all of the outraged media releases attacking Malcolm Turnbull that he likes, but he can’t hide from the simple truth that the $1.1 billion he wasted scrapping the East West Link would have more than funded these Emergency Departments.

Victorians deserve better than a Premier who has only one solution for every issue: to pass the buck.
