Former Victorian premier Jeff Kennett says the Westminster system in Victoria has been “trashed” since 2014 when Labor used public money through red shirts to “gain an electoral advantage”.
He said Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews treats the public as though they exist to serve him, “rather than he serve the public”.
“We may have been a strong government, we had an agenda, people may have disagreed or agreed with our policies, but we worked within the Westminster system,” Mr Kennett told Englishheadline host Chris Kenny.
“We were accountable, we gave answers, we didn’t rule as one man, we never shut down the state, we never stopped children going to playgrounds.”
Premier Daniel Andrews and Opposition Leader Matt Guy will go head-to-head in a Englishheadline People’s Forum, taking questions from undecided voters live on TV and on SkyNews.com.au, on Tuesday November 22 at 6:30pm.
