Wait and see.Shortfor..
Is this the resignation order:
2. Health Dept. Secretary
Over the next six months?
Wait and see.
Personally I don't see why Dan Andrews should resign at the moment.
The purpose of a Minister is to report to the Premier.
It's not his job to sign off on every administrative decision his ministers make is it?
If that were the case, every Premier and Prime Minister should resign for every cock up their ministers make. They don't.
If he were a party to the decision to employ private security, that would be a different matter.
The Premier is one man or one woman. They can't reasonably be expected to know everything that's going on in the various government departments all of the time.
Just how long did the governments, either federally or state have to put things in place to control this? a week?
Maybe you'd have prefered all action delayed for a month or so to hold meetings, invite the Opposition and the Greens to have time to dig up their own action plans? Invite the community to hunt for information on the internet and have their two bobs worth too?
Don't forget that apart from the Quarantine Issue, there's hundreds of other Covid related things he has to turn his attention to. The budget, support for small and large business, people being evicted, and of course working night and day with the health experts and data people.
On top of that there's the fallout from the bushfires.
CEO's of companies don't resign over cock ups from their 2IC . they get fired by Shareholders..We are the government shareholders and we will decide next election.
Of course, he may choose to resign when this pandemic is over. Take a nice holiday..I know I would.
Or get jailed if its an OHS issue with a fatality involved in Victoria.CEO's of companies don't resign over cock ups from their 2IC . they get fired by Shareholders..
You're entitled to your opinion of course.
Or get jailed if its an OHS issue with a fatality involved in Victoria.
Anyhow Andrews strikes me as a complete control freak. I can't help but suspect he not only knew but effectively made the decision. I believe he's been covered for. The story that his chief of staff didn't tell him about the Army being offered for assistance by the Prima Minister doesn't sound the least credible to me.
After all, if he was too busy protecting Victorian's from COVID to, as he said, worry about something as trivial as national security, then what exactly has he been doing for the last six months than micro managing his once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy unfettered dictatorial control; to which he's now trying to add a dystopian arbitrary arrest power.
They've both been ministers for years. Pakula seems to have a clean slate, Mikakos should have been tossed out years ago by Bracksie. I think she's incompetent or corrupt or both. But that's just my opinion.Copy...
But do you really think that e.g. Pakula or Mikakos are competent to be Ministers?
No was at an old school friend of the brides sheep station about an hour west of town.astro said:So did you stay at "The Lake" at Quilpie?
We stayed in the shearers quarters for years before they developed it, fished in the lake, repaired the toilets, rounded up the sheep, thinned out the feral animals. Went there last in our Sprinter.
If I had known you were going there I would have farking warned them!
Last time I looked I couldn't find since WWII an Australian PM or Premier being on watch when north of 600 deaths have occured in one hit, let alone a monumental cock-up involving unnecessary ones in any number.Personally I don't see why Dan Andrews should resign at the moment....
...If that were the case, every Premier and Prime Minister should resign for every cock up their ministers make. They don't...
Wrong and it's decide time now.CEO's of companies don't resign over cock ups from their 2IC . they get fired by Shareholders..We are the government shareholders and we will decide next election.
so it's the skippers fault the bow guy got the owner's daughter pregnant?Last time I looked I couldn't find since WWII an Australian PM or Premier being on watch when north of 600 deaths have occured in one hit, let alone a monumental cock-up involving unnecessary ones in any number.
So Short as skipper (off or on watch) and your boat goes on the bricks and someone dies, then it is everyone else's fault starting with your watch captain, not yours.
I really hope you are never in front of an inquest.
I have read today with interest Andrews evidence including his apology to his fellow Victorians. BUT not one fucking utterence or acknowledgement of the pain and suffering he and his government have foisted upon fellow Australians. Maybe that is why he chose to embrace China's B&R overtures against the advice of fellow Australians. He doesn't see himself as Australian, or at least one holding the same values.
The cunt can get fucked.
I don't recall an inquest involving an unplanned pregnancy.so it's the skippers fault the bow guy got the owner's daughter pregnant?
