Statement from the Leader of the Opposition, Michael O’Brien

This is a really tough day for Victorians. Six weeks of further lockdowns will be a devastating blow for families, workers and small businesses. Many jobs simply won’t survive this.


These lockdowns are the catastrophic consequence of Daniel Andrews’ failure on hotel quarantine, mixed messaging and from being more focussed on Labor’s own political issues than Victorians.


The spread of the virus isn’t down to bad luck – it is bad decisions by government.


To all those Victorians who have done the right thing: thank you. You’ve been let down by your government but please don’t stop doing the right thing.


To all of our emergency services personnel and frontline health workers: we owe you so much and we will continue to rely on your dedication.


To the Andrews Labor Government: We disagree on many things but this is too important for us not to work together.


My team stands ready to work constructively with the government to address this latest crisis.


Michael O'Brien MP
