Quotes attributable to Shadow Minister for Police, Edward O’Donohue MP:
People should not have to live in fear of leaving their car in the street, yet under the Andrews Labor Government that’s what is now happening. In some suburbs a car is stolen every five hours on average.
This is more proof that the job of fixing Victoria’s crime crisis is beyond Daniel Andrews. Only the Liberal Nationals Coalition has the resolve and the policies to bring the crime tsunami that has been unleashed under Daniel Andrews, under control.
