Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is not ruling out spending more to ensure Melbourne's West Gate Tunnel is built, but insists he will not hand over more taxpayer dollars while 'silly games' are at play

The Premier did not respond directly when asked mulitple times on Tuesday if he would rule out spending more to ensure the tollroad is built."Well I’m certainly not announcing that we’re prepared to rewrite the contract ... I don't believe there is a need for additional payments," he said.

"I’m not going to invite contracted parties to put aside a contract in the hope they can write whatever ticket they want … I’m not going to, in any answers I give today, or any announcements I make, give a green light to companies that are playing games with taxpayer’s money."I’m not going to give them any sense that whatever they might need, or say they need, or want, they’re going to get.

Like “ giving “ someone a billion...for nothing? 😂😂🤣

That is a pretty quick backflip but not a surprise.

Either we are paying more or we are not. If he’s not ruling out spending more then yes, we will cop it up the arse, yet again.

Says a man with his nuts in a union's vice

Good man 👍

What bullshit........of course Victorian taxpayers will fund it one way or another. Billion$.

This Labor government seems to be VERY anti-union.

Taxpayer$?

We shouldn't be kow-towing to giants and cowboysOPINION The West Gate Tunnel and Corkman Hotel have found the government wanting. Perhaps we don't need the giants and the cowboys. You can add the slaughter of koalas in Portland to this mix ... hopefully the Andrew Government will act accordingly on this one. We'll certainly be watching and expect the appropriate action / penalties. add criminals to that list. WhereIsDan
