Mr Baillieu will face us at the polls in 878 days – that’s 2 years, 4 months, 3 weeks and 3 days away. It is essential that every single one of us remembers the tactics, delays, evasions, lies and duplicity these elected officials have demonstrated throughout their dealings with the frontline workers who care for the people they were elected to protect.

We go to the polling both earlier than that to vote Federally; bear in mind that our Premier is following his Party’s national agenda, and has been restrained given he has only a one-seat majority – look at the actions of his colleagues in NSW and Queensland to see what happens when they get in with a majority. And be concerned.
