Go have a read through the International rail news thread and see what's happening In the likes of Kenya and Sri Lanka.

In case you're not familiar with the fact, Andrews is the Premier of Victoria, Australia, and he's the one you're slagging off at. What happens in Kenya, Sri Lanka or Mars has nothing to do with him. You are not questioning any system; you are attacking one man.

You are very strong on insults and accusations, but never put up any evidence to back you up.

In the absence of evidence, your writings have to be considered as just hysterical ravings.

I guess that if you don't know the difference between hysterical ravings, and evidence-based discussion, there's not a lot we can do about it.

The Federal Parliament (with the help of Labor) has passed a law to scuttle Dan's Belt and Road deal and other deals that are seen not to be In the best Interests of the Australian public.

I can confirm, that Dan is a dictator gone mad:

One would have thought that if we were under a dictatorship spouting stuff like "Dictator Dan" would have resulted in those responsible for peddling it being thrown in a gulag? And that the fact that hasn't happened indicates we actually aren't?


Seriously, try marching into Pyongyang and shouting about 'Dictator Kim', or Beijing and 'Dictator Xi'. See how long you last.

Don't make really childish comparisons between Victoria under COVID 19 lockdowns and authoritarian mainland China. Just no valid comparison. The Victorian comparison is out there in the land of looney tunes and other nut jobs.

Never stopped Dim Tim Smith. And last I checked he's still out in public life. More's the pity.

It won't worry the government. Smith, O'Brien and Davis are three of the best things the ALP has going for it. I keep wondering when some Lib with a few brains and a bit of clout will tell them to pull their heads in unless they have something positive and constructive to say.

Dan Andrews and his $154 billion pile of debt - and even then he's still hiding the true extent of cost over-runs on his flagship projects. From the Herald-Sun (paywall):

COST blowouts on 10 of Victoria’s key infrastructure projects, including the West Gate and Metro tunnels, have risen to more than $6.45bn.

Concerns over delays and associated ballooning expenses on projects have prompted calls for the urgent release of detail on their progress. The information was left out of the budget for the first time in years on Tuesday, with Treasurer Tim Pallas saying the coronavirus pandemic made preparing progress reports difficult.

But sources close to the government have detailed blowouts of $6.45bn on just 10 projects, including $2bn on the Metro Tunnel and $1.2bn on the West Gate Tunnel.

The state budget revealed only 84 per cent of timelines on the West Gate project were met last year.

Dan will be hiding even more debt from Victorians, you can bet your bottom dollar. This scandal will be Cain/Kirner times five by the time Big Spender Dan is finished...

Interesting to note that despite the COVID lock-down that Victoria's crime rate is increasing at a rate of knots - especially things like knife crime and theft. From News.com.au:

One of Victoria’s top cops, Deputy Commissioner Rick Nugent, labelled it surprising given much of the state has been under coronavirus restrictions limiting movement and activity for the latter part of the 12-month period.

“It is a surprise,” he said...

...Mr Nugent also said part of the increase in crime was gang related and announced Victoria Police had launched a new Operation Alliance aimed at preventing, disrupting and dismantling gangs, particularly street gangs, across Victoria.

The deputy commissioner said the gangs had been responsible for car thefts, aggravated burglaries, home invasions, robberies, serious assaults and knife crime, and they were starting to move outside their local areas to commit crimes.

“This is something that we are absolutely committed to getting on top of,” he said.

“Some of these gangs we know are responsible for the serious and violent crime that’s been going on in both metro Melbourne but also in some rural areas over the past year.

I don't know what's 'surprising' about the increase in crime, and I thought 'gangs' didn't exist in Victoria according to the Premier? According to the police in fact they do.

You thought incorrectly. What he did was to dismiss the idea that black African gangs were the only ones responsible for all the gang-related incidents.

Dan is getting into very dangerous waters by wanting to introduce a permit system for public protests.  He truly is a dictator and control freak:

'Control freak' or otherwise, most people get really pi$$ed off when protests impede their progress. He's unlikely to lose any skin.

And I bet that very same Liberal MP was bi***ing about the BLM protest not long after the pandemic reached Victoria.

It's really typical of the Victorian LNP; negativity all around. Remember when they were complaining about not opening up quick enough? Then as soon as the second wave hit they were complaining that we didn't shut down quickly enough.

What about a protest that you agree with, Mike? Or is that too much cognitive dissonance...
  The Vinelander Minister for Railways

Most planned protests bring the rent-a-crowd and other ne'er-do-wells who couldn't care less about the cause and are only there to make trouble.

But of course...being on the far right of the political spectrum, you could hardly agree with the concept of protests because they are invariably from what you would call the 'loony left'.
