‘DO NOTHING’ BAILLIEU CELEBRATES A YEAR OF INACTION

Posted on 25. Nov, 2011 in News

Victorians have been let down by the Baillieu Government, which has spent the past 12 months reviewing projects, cutting services and failing to deliver on key election commitments, Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews said today.

The State Labor Opposition today marked the Premier’s one year anniversary by launching a new website and booklet outlining the many failures of the Baillieu Government.

The interactive website, www.springst.com.au allows users to view the broken promises and impact funding cuts are having on their local community. It focuses on education, health, and transport.

The booklet outlines the Government’s failures in education, health, jobs, community safety, public transport, roads, regional Victoria, bushfire prevention, accountability, planning, fairness, cost of living and the environment.

“In 12 months, the Baillieu Government has done nothing to improve services such as health, public transport and education for Victorians,” Mr Andrews said.

“Instead Mr Baillieu has made $2.2 billion worth of cutbacks thatare hurting families and communities across Victoria.

“The Premier still has no plan for jobs, no plan for education and health, no plan for skills, no plan for infrastructure investment, and no plan for the regional areas.

“Doing nothing won’t keep Victorians in work, doing nothing won’t help Victorians get an ambulance when they need one, and doing nothing won’t provide our children with a better education.”

Mr Andrews said any claims by the Premier that he was delivering for Victoria was nothing more than hollow rhetoric.

“Action speaks louder than words and unfortunately action is something Victorians have seen little of from Mr Baillieu,” he said.

“Doubling state debt with nothing to show for it, cutting funding for crucial services such as education and health, or interfering in and undermining police command is not taking action – it’s simply
damaging Victoria.

“It’s time the Premier started explaining to Victorians why he is failing to make Victoria a better place to live.”
