Daniel Andrews is starting to look like a fraud on how genuine he is on combatting family violence.
There are two incidences this week where Daniel Andrews has squibbed it on family violence.Daniel Andrews has failed to support our tough new mandatory sentencing proposals which would see repeat family violence offenders go to jail for a likely minimum of ten years.
The Premier has also failed to condemn a video posted to Facebook by the Women of Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia which advocates men hitting their wives in a "managed way".
It's fair enough that in the last 24 hours Daniel Andrews has attacked Pauline Hanson over her comments calling for a boycott of Cadbury products. But he's being totally inconsistent by ignoring these appalling attitudes and comments.On an issue as family violence, Daniel Andrews has to show leadership and call out unacceptable attitudes whenever they occur.
