  1. Victoria smashing it out of the ball park.

    Thing about this is if Victoria come out of this sooner than NSW having had it throughout the regions – then NSW and Gladys are stuffed – will also cost Scomo the election on “Gold Standard”.

    No other way you can spin this – Victoria and Dan Andrews have set the benchmark for the entire world – not just Australia – if he gets out of it – it will be the only place on earth ever to have done it with Delta, only place to have done it twice !

    Go Dan – incredible efforts, seriously amazing – fast response, hard response, up front with people, proffessional – NSW is a bloody cake stall at the church fundraiser at the Gympie Gymkana !!

    • Why give Dan credit? It’s Victorian’s who are the real hero’s and Dan is always too slow to respond.

    • You definitely typed this with a left handed mouse while in close proximity to a picture of Dan…

    • Here, here David!

      A toast to Dan Andrews who for over a year has been pilloried and muck raked by shambolic corrupt governments – NSW & Fed LNP – and their media shills seeking to destroy him. He’s come out of it with integrity and dignity and shone a light on the paltry muckrakers now drowning in their own incompetence and pathetic schoolyard bully boy tactics.

      • All very well, but let’s not forget the “I don’t know who’s idea it was for hotel quarantine” investigation that found nobody made the decision…

        • Ah well, it is politics after all. If he’d admitted fault the baying bloodhounds would have finished him off. I for one am glad that didn’t happen.

          Can’t imagine anyone else with the backbone to persevere as he did.
