Images of Daniel Andrews proudly wearing a hard hat with a CFMEU sticker blazoned all over it are a reminder for all Victorians of those close ties that he has with the union.
Mr Finn They own him.Ms CROZIER They do own him, Mr Finn. Daniel Andrews has had hundreds of thousands of dollars donated to the Labor Party, and it is an indication of how he came to power. I refer to some of the intimidatory and outrageous remarks made by union boss John Setka yesterday:
Let me give a dire warning to the ABCC inspectors: be careful what you do.
You know what we're going to do? We're going to expose them all.We will lobby their neighbourhoods. We will tell them who lives in that house. What he does for a living, or she. We will go to their local football club. We will go to the local shopping centre.
They will not be able to show their faces anywhere. Their kids will be ashamed of who their parents areDaniel Andrews has been silent on these shocking and outrageous remarks. He should be condemning these intimidatory, bullying remarks, but he has got far too many close ties with people who undertake these bullying behaviours, like Peter Marshall, John Setka and others. All of those Labor MPs who have close ties with the CFMEU should be calling this out for what it is bullying and intimidatory behaviour and it should not be accepted by any one of the government's members.
