The Victorian Upper House today rejected the decision of the Chinese Communist Party to block access of some Victorian exports including timber, wine, barley and seafood at its regional sitting in Bright.
The Upper House also congratulated the Commonwealth Government on its decision to cancel the Belt and Road Initiative Memorandum of Understanding signed by Daniel Andrews in 2018 and the Belt and Road Framework Agreement, signed in 2019, because they were not in the interests of Victoria and Australia.
The Federal Government has knocked out two of the odious agreements signed secretly by Daniel Andrews without formal pre-approval of his Cabinet or Party Room.
These agreements were not in the interests of Victoria or Australia and, today, the Upper House, including Daniel Andrews’ own Labor Party members of the Upper Hosue, agreed.
Country Victorians have been asking how they have benefitted from these agreements signed between Daniel Andrews and the Chinese Communist Party. Instead, Victorian agricultural and primary producers have been hurt by games played by the Chinese Communist Party.
The cancellation of these agreements is a step to enhance Australia’s sovereignty and all members of the Victorian Upper House today agreed.
Comments attributable to the Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council, David Davis:
“This vote is a slap in the face for Daniel Andrews and his Victorian Labor Government.
“They sold Victorians out signing second rate deals with the Chinese Communist Party.
“Victoria got nothing from these deals. So, why did Andrews sign them?”
