Dan is indeed the man

Post by mavisbramston » 26 Nov 2018, 12:20

Well Iwill bring it up. Labor wins and they are all trying to analyze why.
Its really quite simple.
The Andrews Government has been outstanding.
Safe schools safe injecting rooms. Like it or not THEY HAVE BOTH SAVED LIVES.
At last talked about euthasia and dying with help and dignity.
Building roads and rail...the greatest infrastructure ever in Victoria.
Compassion and also renewable energy targets.
Lets face it...Dan has been the best Prmier this state has had.
Oh and womens rights and protection services.
Only one crit...want him to do more to protect wild life and habitat

This article gives a brief outline of some of the campaign promises.
I suspect it is an incomplete coverage.

As a moderate socialist (believing in private enterprise, not the greed of capitalism) I am largely happy with the election results. I just don't understand the preference deals which caused the loss of seats that had been held by other left wing members. It shows the one-upmanship preferred to a front united against the right wing.

The same thing happens in US preliminaries, where candidates run down fellow party candidates, leaving ammunition for their true opposition to pick up later and use against their general interest.

Here in Australia, why can't they see that the enemy are those on the other side of the fence, not the ones on their own side.

The "preference whispering" ensured the that the Taxi Drivers Party with a minuscule percentage of votes was able to knock out the Greens who had over 9% of the quota. It should be banned, like it is at the federal level.

Totally agree about the ridiculous preference whipering.
For years the absurdly ignorant Harradine almost fontrolled the country. Did the ghastly Shooters party get a seat?
I voted for Labor with second to the Animal Justice party. For a very new party they did w ell.
I did not find the sex party. They were a very progressive.

Sex Party became the Reason Party, and Fiona Patten lost her seat because of Labor's preferences! :flaming_mad
Andrews is talking about giving her a job with the government.

Perhaps people misunderstood that it was a political party and expected it to be a sex romp. I'm not sure reason has the same appeal though.

In a surprise outcome, the prominent crossbencher Fiona Patten of the Reason party managed to hold her seat despite all but conceding she had lost and hitting out at the so-called “preference whisperer” Glenn Druery.

Patten said on Tuesday she hoped the police force would examine his activities. Her decision to refer Druery to the VEC has sparked a potential police investigation.

Druery, who has worked as an adviser to federal senator Derryn Hinch, is said to charge a fee to help micro-parties swap preferences.
