In a new political low, Daniel Andrews has sought to blame Victorian families for his own incompetent mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under Daniel Andrews, Victoria is the COVID capital of the country. For Daniel Andrews to blame that on Victorian families – rather than his own incompetence – is an absolute disgrace.

Daniel Andrews encouraged 10,000 Victorians to protest two weeks ago by promising that they would not be fined for attending.

Now we see the consequences of Andrews’ hypocrisy and double standards.

For Andrews to fail to mention the impact of his 10,000 people protest on the spike in COVID-19 cases demonstrates his culpability.

Victorians believed Daniel Andrews when he promised them his harsh lockdown restrictions would ease on Monday. Now Daniel Andrews has broken that promise and he has betrayed Victorians.

Labor’s sudden backflip will cost jobs. It will kill small businesses that will never recover. It will mean that more Victorians will face unemployment. It will ruin many families’ plans to safely gather at home.

Regional Victoria, where there are hardly any COVID-19 cases, is being unfairly punished by Labor’s Melbourne-centric focus. There is again a strong case for an easing of restrictions in country Victoria that enables people to safely get back to work.

Victoria has laboured under the harshest lockdown laws in the country, but they’ve failed to protect Victorians’ health.

Daniel Andrews has spent more time this week focussing on his corrupt Labor Government than on COVID-19.

Daniel Andrews is a hypocrite and has now misled Victorians over his COVID restrictions.

To blame Victorian families for his betrayal of them shows that Daniel Andrews is simply not fit to lead Victoria.
