Today the Andrews Labor Government is again trying to ram legislation through the Parliament to break up the CFA and put the lives and safety of Victorians at risk.
Daniel Andrews did not have the courage to bring this to Parliament before the federal election - because he knows the Fire Rescue Victoria legislation is wrong.
It disrespects volunteers, it fixes no problems and delivers no increase to community safety.
Once again, Daniel Andrews is politicising presumptive legislation by failing to draft it as a separate bill.
All this as he cuts $40m from the CFA capital budget and millions from the emergency services.
The Andrews Labor Government shows again its true duplicitous colours as it treats our CFA volunteers as political play things.
