Following revelations of Labor’s corruption scandal, Daniel Andrews’s colleagues will today have an opportunity to support an ombudsman’s investigation.
The Andrews Labor Government refused to support referring the matter to the Victorian Ombudsman in the Lower House yesterday.
A motion will be moved in the Upper House today to refer the conduct of Labor Ministers to the Ombudsman.
Labor MPs and the Upper House crossbench must support the Liberal Nationals referral of this shocking behaviour to the Ombudsman.
This will be a big test for the integrity of Labor MPs who will either choose to continue the protection racket or support flushing out corrupt activity within the Labor Party.
Comments attributable to the Leader of the Opposition in the Upper House, David Davis:
“If Labor MPs were serious about ratting out the corruption within their party, they would support this referral to the Ombudsman.
“The Andrews Labor Government is more interested in internal cage fighting than getting Victoria back to work following the economic impacts of COVID-19.
“The stench of corruption surrounding the Andrews Labor Government is getting stronger by the day and this test will show Victorians whether Labor truly wants to get to the bottom of this mess.”
