Voluntary Assisted Dying Law debate
I asked the Minister for Health this morning what happens with the application of the Voluntary Assisted Dying Laws when our acute hospital is on the other side of the Border - in NSW.
I had already expressed my concerns over the uncertainty around what qualifies an individual to be a Victorian resident but assuming they are Victorian, hospitalised at Albury Base, having already agreed to use the Assisted Dying Laws – what happens?
Her answer was NOTHING – there is no jurisdiction, it can’t happen.
It is just another example of the inadequacies of the bill before the house …

Coalition Gas Policy
GAS POLICY A WIN:WIN

In February I spoke in State Parliament against the Government legislation and about the need to return to conventional gas exploration in a bid to ease the impost of rising energy costs and return Victoria to a state with affordable power driving business and industry. The Coalition's gas exploration policy announced yesterday does just that and also provides the landholder with rights to royalties as well as the right to say NO. #cheapergas #nofracking

Cheaper gas. No fracking.

Today Matthew Guy and Peter Walsh announced that a Liberal Nationals government would lift the moratorium on conventional gas exploration in Victoria, while keeping the ban on fracking.

We’re also looking after our farmers by ensuring fair royalties, and a right of veto. So we’ll have cheaper gas, but fracking will remain banned. Only the Liberal Nationals are working to drive down your gas bills.

Beechworth Gold Heritage
Last week I visited Beechworth's Wallaby and Rechabite Mines. These rich finds generated a great portion of, what in today's money, would have been $8 billion in gold that came out of the area in the 1800s. Now the tracks that lead to the mine and a gold battery, restored after the 2003 fires, have no signage, are closed and overgrown. Some passionate locals including Geoff Palmer, Joe Krauss and Jamie Kronborg are keen to see this part of our history accessible to all and I have already offered to support them in whatever way I can. #buildingabetterbenambra

Just when you think there's good news …

A Labor Government press release last month trumpeted major investment in our train and bus stations. Well the truth is there is no money for any bus stations in Benambra and the only plans appear to be a bike rack at Chiltern and a cage for bikes at Wodonga. #devilisinthedetail

And so that was September …

A visit from Victoria’s next Premier Matthew Guy and shadows David Southwick and Ryan Smith MP, going to the races for the Bill Tilley Handicap, calling for #noplandan’s team to give us a date for new trains, on the media hustings over McKoy Street intersection, dirt road speed limits, respect for the court and euthanasia, a catch-up with Salvation Army’s Brendan Nottle on his walk from Melbourne to Canberra and on a sombre note delivering the speech at Police Remembrance Day service.

It looks like The Bolt Report has got on board with a speech I made earlier in the year about the gas reserves we have in this state that remain untapped and largely unexplored.

I did like the line in that speech ...

Natural resources 101 for the dummies in this place — the followers, the fake leaders, the green Kool-Aid sippers.

Good stuff. Colourful language is always more likely to get noticed, and repeated. The gross stupidity of the looney left that Dopey Dan so admires is going to cause untold hardship to Victorians. We can only hope that when the lights go out that it doesnt cause the death or serious injury to some poor soul.

POLICE REMEMBRANCE DAY

Last week I spoke in parliament with some pride at the recognition for a former colleague and patrol car buddy Sergeant Marina Gyfteas. As I said at the time Marina is a great example of the often unheralded officers who have made this state a safer place, a better place. It was also timely given that this Friday is Police Remembrance Day -- remembering those officers who have lost their lives on the job -- and I would urge anyone who is able to seek out the services in your town.
