Climate change is all a con , time to wake up people before you own nothing and have no freedoms That’s partially true. In some seats they went backwards and even Liberal preferences couldn’t get them over the line. Only 1-1.5% increase. Settle down. Good Labor candidates in place early can turn that around.

Another four years wedging the ALP. 🤥🤥💩💩🤡🤡 Actually … insert some reality here … that’s EXACTLY what happened DanSlide Keep kidding yourselves, of course the Liberal preferences assisted you!! $200 for jousting sticks? I can understand people voting Labor. What I can't understand is people who vote for the greens 🙄 like wtf are they actually trying to achieve? 🤷🤦

Thank you to Victorian Socialist and Animal Justice Party voters for helping Greens win seats like Richmond.. great work for progressives backing each other.. Dan, can you please bring back Mandates and isolation? Obviously you revoked them for Votes, but it was a very unsafe thing to do as Covid has not changed...or has it? I fail to understand how it is suddenly acceptable to be a super spreading Granny killer, so do it now.

Yeah, I don’t think that’s a solace to the cookers Dan thinks it is. But he doesn't and never will. Look at the difference in swings between the north and west of Melbourne and South East, and ignorance of country Victoria. The SRL pork barrel scheme is a joke. Bit rich coming from a man who pork barrelled at risk seats.

He’s been an okay premier. But he went insane during Covid. That’s nice 😊 Almost as if that's his job. To govern for the people in his state. Whoa what a concept.
