Desparate Dan tries Desal for distraction
29 March 2018
Desperate and dodgy, Daniel Andrews is having such a terrible week he is trying to use the dud desal plant as a distraction from Labor’s rorts and bad behaviour.
Lisa Neville, one of the MPs whose campaign benefited from Labor’s ‘Red Shirts’ rort, was rolled out this afternoon to re-announce a wasteful 15GL desal water order that was declared back in May 2017.
Melbourne water customers already pay around $600 million every year to Aquasure in service payments.
Under the contract, Melbourne families shouldn’t be paying even more to keep the plant in working order.
Comment attributable to Shadow Minister for Water Steph Ryan
Melbourne families are being ripped off by Labor rorters and ripped off on their water bills because of Daniel Andrews’ sweetheart pay-back deals.
Customers should not be misled by Daniel Andrews – they are paying for Labor’s wasteful desal water orders.
Daniel Andrews should have used profits from the sale of energy certificates to reduce water bills but instead he has ordered water we don’t need, from a company that already gets $600 million a year from Melbourne families.
