ABC Melbourne 774 Mornings with Jon Faine
JUSTIN MADDEN GAGGED BY ‘BULLIES’ …. & LINDSAY TANNER: WE WON’T INTERVENE IN VICTORIAN ALP
June 04, 2009
Justin Madden’s accusing ‘Opposition bullying’ of being behind the censure motion that’s seen him gagged in the wake of the damning Brimbank Council revelations .. He defended his record despite being the target of the first successful censure motion against a Victorian Government Minister in 20 years.
Does this add up to reasonable grounds for sacking? Liberal Leader in the Legislative Council David Davis told Jon Faine why it does.Then Jon switched to the swine flu emergency, asking is bungling behind Victoria’s swine flu toll is quadruple every other states? Jon asked Health Minister Daniel Andrews who was to blame for the outbreak sweeping through Victoria at a greater rate than anywhere else in Australia .. and his reaction to the decision by other states to blacklist travellers from here.
And is it time for Federal ALP heavyweights such as Lindsay Tanner to intervene in the Victorian branch amid recurring allegations of rampant branchstacking, cronyism and corrupt behaviour? The Finance Minister told us why that’s not going to happen.
And you didn’t miss a thing. Listen now online to Jon Faine’s hectic half hour on 774 ABC and check out his famous videoblog wrapping the big stories of the week each Friday.
