Small Business Survey

Daniel Andrews and the Victorian Government have cut support to struggling small businesses during this second COVID-19 lock down. In the first lock down, small businesses were provided with $10,000 of State Government support.  In the second lock down the Victorian State Government cut the small business support to just […]

Sole Trader Survey

Given the importance of small business, including sole traders, to the economy and jobs, I believe this is not only harsh and unfair, but counterproductive.  This is especially so in the second lock down where a significant cause of surging virus numbers and the lock down has been state government […]

The Coalition’s plan to get Victoria back to work and back in business

With COVID-19 now apparently under a measure of control, it is urgent that the Andrews Labor Government puts in place a clear plan that enables us to take back our lives and rebuild our local communities. Many hard lessons have been learnt from the virus outbreak; we now need to […]

Daniel Andrews & Labor are seeking to override the Moorabool Council and the local community to force the dumping of toxic soil from the West Gate Tunnel

Labor are seeking to override the Moorabool Council and the local community to force the dumping of toxic soil from the West Gate Tunnel.  It’s wrong, it’s undemocratic.

Daniel Andrews has decided that cafes & restaurant owners need to stay closed because having only 10 customers on their premises would mean the owners would be making a loss. This should be a matter for the restaurant or cafe owner not a matter for Andrews. Breathtaking arrogance. Andrews should […]
