Now NSW Labor is getting in on the act - Fairfax/Nine;

Labor MP Julia Finn has quit the NSW shadow cabinet after she was named in an internal investigation into branch stacking in western Sydney.
Ms Finn said in a statement on Friday afternoon she had informed leader Jodi McKay she would be standing aside as Labor's spokeswoman for carers and consumer protection, but said she maintained her innocence.
Ms Finn, the member for the western Sydney seat of Granville, indicated she was looking to clear her name, paving the way for a possible return to the frontbench, by further pursuing the matter internally.
“I have asked the NSW ALP’s internal tribunal to urgently consider matters raised about me in an anonymous dossier and in the Moorhead independent review," she said.
"I have asked that any steps required for this to happen be taken. I maintain my innocence of any wrongdoing, as was the finding of the independent review."


Will the stench of corruption ever leave the NSW Labor Party!

Beat me to it - this is dreadful news for the Labor Party who have already been accused of being way too close to the Chinese Communist Party. I wonder what the substance of the allegations are - haven't heard anything yet.

Heard Hadley talking to NSW Opposition labor leader Jodie McKay, in the first week of April, calling for her to punt this bloke.

So nothing new, conveniently a buy election is to be held next week. My understanding is that such a raid (Open to correction) requires consent from The AG, unchristian porter.
Maybe the LNP have more garbage to take out on a Friday afternoon.
And no, no tin foil hat in sight.

The United Front faction of the ALP is what's full of CCP hacks and operatives.  Dan must be shaking in his boots given this development.

One big dumpster fire. Self-inflicted.

Could somebody enlighten me as to the reason why a raid on a NSW ALP figure is listed under "Daniel Andrews' Imploding Act"? I know Andrews carries some clout, but in NSW?
The way this could develop surely means it should have its own thread.

Pity for them it's not an election year. They'll be trying as hard as they can to keep this in circulation until 2022.
  Carnot Minister for Railways

She's one of the best journalist's at The Oz. No pushover.

The United Front faction has had problems with Commie infiltration since the 1930s and they've never really had a desire to root out that cancer.

Then what the heck are they doing in Dan Andrews' office. They need to be shown the door.

Is there an opposition in Victoria?

Liberals are wandering the barren plains of their own failings, and the Greens are slowly slitting into two "factions"
  Carnot Minister for Railways

Yes, the Vic LNP opposition are rather inept and impotent.  The Greens are fighting among themselves (Woke Watermelons vs. Woke Elitists). And the ALP are bracing themselves as Adem dumps a whole lot of dirty laundry to the media...

Michael O'Brien, the Libs leader and Leader of the Victorian Opposition is the best thing the Party has going for it . . . the Labor Party that is.

News today Daniel Andrews is slipping in the poles due to his handling of the coronavirus issues in Victoria.  Why is he being judged so harshly on a virus which was not of his making and is spreading due to the lawlessness of some people in the community.

I think that his arrogance, complete lack of warmth and empathy, refusal to answer direct questions, strong links to the Chinese Communist Party, the branch stacking affair of which he claims to know nothing although he will be the main political beneficiary, the tunnel fiasco, the CFA fiasco, the whirlpool of debt, his lack of leadership in not stopping the protest, and the complete abandonment of country Victoria during the pandemic and after the fires are all contributing to his decline in popularity. The silent majority are still there.

Just wait until the budget. His outlandish promises to Fire Rescue Victoria will further cripple the State, which is staggering financially. All his promises to unions cannot be afforded, and there will be lots of discontent later in the year. This State is near breaking point and the Commonwealth can't afford to bale us out.

I think the pandemic opened people eyes to the huge responsibilities of the States. Our State Government continues to sidestep issues by blaming the Commonwealth. Governments at all levels are being forced to make poor decisions to gain the votes of fringe parties. Troubled times ahead.

The post by brownhillboy has obviously been put together with a good deal of thought. His list of Andrews' problems is comprehensive, and would spell trouble for the ALP at the ballot box, if Average Fred took the time to actually stop and consider everything. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to happen, as witness the number of people you hear who are single-issue minded. The bigger picture doesn't seem to enter into it.
For example, the "CFA fiasco" starts tomorrow amidst a deafening silence. Nobody is talking about branch stacking or most of the other issues brownhillboy listed.

As I write, the only thing on people's minds appears to be COVID-19, which has effectively drowned out just about everything else.  If, and it's a big if, Victoria had an effective opposition leader, things might be different. As it is, O'Brien is coming across as that worst of all Australian epithets; a whinger. First, he screamed that Andrews should have relaxed the lockdown earlier, and two weeks later was saying that the restrictions had been relaxed too soon, and the Army should have called in earlier. Each comment is a reaction; nothing of his is proactive.

"The silent majority" is indeed there, but experience suggests that it is the "doesn't affect me" majority. A big scandal a month before the election is O'Brien's best hope.

Like a random large fairly unnanounced project that not a lot of people took favour too just before an election? Razz

Is Daniel Andrews a political dead man walking??

There's no chance I could vote for a party if he is the figurehead following the fundamental failures of process.
  doyle Assistant Commissioner

No.. no he's not

As you can see all our leaders have and are making mistakes
The biggest mistakes are probably for the future in other states by not learning from mistakes here in Victoria
Does anyone here believe that the other states are prepared I certainly don't
