You just can't help yourself, can you?  Any rumour will do, as long as it's unfavourable.

Personally, I wouldn't have dignified it with a reply. M.

Because otherwise it's just a constantly orgy of love for Stairman Dan from you two ABC-watching pinkos. "Oooh, don't you attack our Dan, he's the best thing since marmalade on toast".

I'm allowed to have comments speculating about how he came to cartwheel unsuccessfully down a billionaire's slippery garden steps. Apparently he was a very frequent visitor at both Fox Senior and Fox Junior's houses in Portsea - just curious how you think that looks for a Labor Premier, especially one that was simultaneously being lobbied for the COVID19 detention camp to be built at his guest's airport.

A suggestion for Don. Get a dictionary and look up the meaning of "evidence". You have none. I don't care if its Andrews, O'Brien, Morrison, Albanese or Uncle Tom Cobleigh, rumours belong in a garbage bin. Your house is one. So is your brain.

So the approval of the Avalon Quarantine Center a few weeks ago wasn't evidence enough for you, Valvegear.

As the Premier of Victoria Dan should be allowed to get legless and fall down the steps of any billionaire's house.

He's just confirming that he meets at least two out of the three criteria that I alluded to previously.

What a typically pathetic smear, thinly disguised as joining the dots, but nonetheless commensurate with your level of intelligence.

The Victorian government actually favours the Mickleham site. The feds favour Avalon; are you now conceding that federal coalition MP's drink more wine with the Fox family than Lord Dan?

Perhaps they do but they'd be hard pressed to be there more than Dan (was).

I just love the fact that you've rejoined the bunch of adoring doe-eyed puppies that follow me around from thread to thread hanging off my every word. Its always really flattering to find love letters from you admiring fans every time I open Railpage - and bravo with the choice of words insulting my intelligence instead of my mother this time.

Surely up there with Shelley or Keats.

So QAnon has taken over Railpage - inevitable I suppose.

I never said I was necessarily 'anti-COVID19 vaccine', I'm just skeptical that's all. I'd really rather my immune system handle it if/when it comes my way - but it's never going to be allowed out in the Australian community anyway so what's the rush to get the vaccine?
So what's new?

Shamelessly stealing my lines - again. Another one of my doe-eyed puppies if ever there was one.

Nah you're another one converting to my cult that I'm forming around my Railpage avatar... another doe-eyed puppy in the making. You just don't know it yet.

Dan Andrews has been given the all clear to return to work on June 28th.
  The Vinelander Minister for Railways
  Carnot Minister for Railways

So Dan has returned to work.  Some interesting revelations being unearthed about Dan's former right-hand man working for Crown Casino:
https://www.theage.com.au/business/companies/former-andrews-advisor-behind-crown-s-threat-to-watchdog-20210628-p584vb.html

"Victorian premier Daniel Andrews’ former senior advisor Chris Reilly was behind a threat from Crown Resorts to call in the state’s gambling minister to halt the casino regulator’s push for stronger anti-money laundering controls."


And ironically some key witnesses aren't being involved:


It'll probably be a white-wash.

Royal Commissions have a good history of getting to the bottom of things. The Commission's work won't be a whitewash. The fun starts when a Commission makes recommendations based upon its findings, and these are completely ignored.

Now, some detailed information about what happened to Andrews.

The Andrews family had rented a holiday house in Sorrento via a holiday rental agency for one week, and arrived at the property on the afternoon of March 5. It was a family weekend and he was there with his wife, Catherine, and children Grace and Joseph. His eldest son, Noah, was "on and off, back and forth" at the holiday house.
The plan was for Mrs Andrews to work from the holiday rental for a few more days with the children, while the Premier returned to work on the Tuesday. He had planned to pick up the children from the property that night because they were due back at school on the Wednesday.
On the Tuesday morning, he was up early, planning to leave Sorrento at 6:30 am to travel to his Mulgrave home to shower and change ahead of an Indigenous announcement in Healesville at 9 am.
Andrews said, " The step was wet, as I said; briefcase in one hand, an overnight bag in the other, I've taken a couple of steps on the porch, then I've gone to the first step of only two steps, I think it might be three - very short distances - instead of my foot being planted on that step, it simply slid off."

I'm sorry to spoil all the fun that the rumourmongers were having. It wasn't Fox's house at Portsea, Andrews wasn't drunk, there wasn't a fight, the approval for a quarantine station at Avalon didn't happen (it's Mickelham).  Time to wipe the egg of a few faces.

David Davis was given the job of trying to worm the opposition's way out, and he stammered that their list of questions, (all twelve of them?), were what the people were asking (which is patent rubbish), and that that a satisfactory explanation had emerged and all is forgiven.

I'm not going to argue with you about this one, I don't think they should have asked any formal questions about it in VIC Parliament. Own goal.

It raises questions about the effectiveness of the VIC Liberal Opposition - Michael Kroger is a regular on Sky and used to head the Liberal Party in Victoria and I saw him the other day on their channel, he must be ashamed of what they've become in 2021.
  Carnot Minister for Railways

It'll be interesting to see if Teflon Dan does anything to remove Crown Casino's licence after tonight's 4 Corners report.

Especially after Lloyd Williams' backing of Dan in the 2014 election campaign. Lloyd is the executor of the Packer Estate...

I doubt if anyone will be charged until Commissioner Ray Finkelstein has completed his enquiry and subsequent report to the parliament. I'd guess that there will be more revelations yet to come, and having police tramping around making parallel enquiries would do nothing except muddy waters which are already distinctly murky.

Nice to see the Formula One GP canned again this year.  Probably saved the State close to $100 million and perhaps even more in the future if Melb permanently loses the stupid circus/money pit.

Kudos to the Save Albert Park crowd for finally succeeding too.
