Look where Kobey Diamond has turned up.  A guy who visited the EMRG and also Trains Watchers nights.  Same guy who was caught up to no good at the Streamliners Event in Goulburn.

Oh dear.

And I never thought that Dan Andrews would Kobey D would intersect on the same RP forum.

But I was wrong....

The Premier of the most indebted state in the nation has told Fairfax that he's not interested in cutting anything from the VIC government budget and that the state must 'grow' its way back to prosperity... presumably using taxpayer money?

Why not splash some more around, this time by giving every household in Victoria $250, but you have to register on the VIC energy comparison website to get it (so that's going to rule out the oldies for a start...)

Is there no end to the 'free' money that Labor dishes out? Can't wait for an Albanese Labor government - I've already got nets set up in my backyard to catch all the helicopter money that will be dropped on us...

Completely ignoring the federal bribe from big blue last week of course. I can't wait for a federal Labor government either, except I'm not being sarcastic.

Someone else has to pay for it is the bottom line. Land tax receipts in Victoria have gone from $500 million in 2001 to $5 billion - and nobody was allowed an exemption during COVID19 so many people had to pay exorbitant tax on empty shops.

We're already a high-cost high-taxation country and every time there's one of these give-aways that situation gets worse.

Victoria's government debt is greater than NSW, SA and QLD combined.

Apparently Dan is holed up in Crown Casino's hotel at the moment not seeing or speaking to anyone. Unsure why...?

Let me repeat the key point for you (which you missed) - Victoria's government debt is greater than NSW, SA and QLD combined.

Strange, I walked past the Premier's modest car this morning in the basement car park of 1 Treasury...not missing in action or 'holed up' as you claim.

Doesn't mean he's not avoiding the media, nor does it mean he's not staying at Crown for whatever reason.

Your state government is the most indebeted in Australia - by far. What's the matter, Mike, don't like hearing the truth about your Dear Leader's fiscal incompetence?

Victoria is six times more indebted than the Cain/Kirner 'crisis' where they couldn't borrow money any more money from finance markets.

But so predictable from the representative from SA.

You actually boast about how you're making the already bankrupt Victorian government's situation worse and you think that's something to be proud of?

Dan Andrews has a harder job ahead in November?

Dan Andrews has a harder job ahead in November

Did we just watch the same election? If the federal result in Victoria is repeated in November, the state Libs will be essentially relegated to minor party status, especially given that there are plans afoot to run Teal candidates in state seats in the inner east.

The ALP victory in 2018 took many eastern suburbs seats and the greens didn't have the successes they expected around Melbourne. Similar to this 2022 federal result actually.

The ALP wont lose the heartland seats in the western suburbs, their margins are way too big.

If, and it's a big if, the Victorian ALP does lose seats it will be to Independents. The Libs in Victoria are a disorganised rabble with a recycled Leader, after taking far too long to wake up to the fact that the whining Mr O'Brien was a king-sized liability. Add to that a a couple of high-ranking drunks, an Upper House Member who has just been booted out of the Party, a Shadow Minister for Health who has been wound up and programmed to say, "It should have been done sooner" regardless of the topic, and you're scratching for any discernible talent.

It will be difficult for the ALP to repeat 2018 such was the landslide. Bracks couldn't repeat the 2002 result in 2006 and then the Coalition managed a very narrow surprise victory in 2010.

I think you are right though, those seats will go to Independents (and Greens) this time around.

Independents could well pick up both ALP and Liberal seats in places like Hawthorn and Kew and there are some country areas ripe for a good Independent candidate. Northcote is due to go Green at a general election having previous been after a bi-election and both Melbourne Ports and Richmond are close...

The logo in the bottom left of the photo immediately above pretty well sums it. Its journalists are probably still in shock. Matthew Guy's State electorate, Bulleen, is in Menzies.

Dan Andrews has a harder job ahead in November?

Massive swings, where? The Biggest swing was in Calwell 7.6% a cast iron ALP seat. Aston, a Lib seat had a 7.4% swing against it to the ALP. Quite a few Vic seats swung towards the ALP. A 4.6% swing in Deakin a Liberal seat has made it close too close to call. So the Herald Sun is being mischievous. The election will be harder of course it will. Andrews is going for a third term. The Coalition has its own headaches. In the Federal Election, the ALP did not lose 1 seat, The Coalition, Chisholm, Higgins, Kooyong, Goldstein all lost.

The Coalition will need divine intervention to win Victoria. They are a rabble. I hope they don't. We do not need Culture war twits like Ryan, Finn and Crozier. Get some moderates in and the electorate might be interested.

Mr. Lane

Dear Mr. Lane, my question is and still is not votes leaving LIBS for the ALP but votes leaving the LIBS and ALP for minor parties.
