    That one’s as old as Adam.

  2. Catcalling Inebriate

    Funny how this was always the most likely outcome. I’m now wondering how many of the “don’t” know Ministers and heads of Department are now looking for local government jobs in southern Tasmania?

    Jenny. Yes Dan. There’s a bus coming and you’re under it.

    Jenny Mikakos has asked to front the inquiry again. She has mis-unremembered something (is that even a word?)

  5. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Jenny. Yes Dan. There’s a bus coming and you’re under it.

    She’ll take one for “the good of the Party” – there’ll be a decent period in the Wilderness – then pop up on same QUANGO or other…

  6. Major Elvis Newton

    No doubt Jenny from the Block will be deleting all her #IStandWithDan tweets after her sudden memory restoration.

  7. Tim Neilson

    That one’s as old as Adam.

    And the Academy Award for impeccably apt use of a cliche goes to…

    My brother said a few weeks ago that he couldn’t understand why Dictator Dan’s ministers are so loyal to him: “because he’ll burn them all and dance on their graves before admitting to any wrongdoing or accepting any blame.”

    As goes Kim L’ill Whatsisname in North Victoria…er…Korea, so goes Dan…..

    “if you want to know who rules over you, find out who you are never allowed to criticize”

    All Victorians have to do is stand up and say “no more” and Dans reign stops.

  10. Don

    Or the Health Minister might choose to do to Dan what he did to her. How much of a lapdog is she?

  11. Farmer Gez

    Andrews said today that he called an inquiry into hotel quarantine to find out who’s responsible for making decisions made by his own cabinet.

    That’s a level of arrogance and FU that would make Stalin blush.

    Very interesting choice of photo on the Age website for the Andrews story (probably updated by now). They chose to show him holding a Bible as he took his oath (to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help him God).

    Andrews to Mikakos:
    I see you.
    I hear you.
    I throw you under the bus.

  14. nb

    I say fair enough – the other person did it. Andy’s first responsibility is not to know anything, do anything, say much except to destroy others, pay anything, and probably also not to exist. Look at Basement Biden, a role model. In future we should vote for animations, supported by a willing media. They can then operate at the behest of Bugxi.

    Can anybody with legal experience tell me if he was in contempt of this enquiry?

  16. Snoopy

    The apparent fact that five months on, no one, including Dan Andrews, is able or willing to reveal who initially suggested that private security guards be used in hotels is a huge clue. The only explanation is that it was Andrews himself who wanted private security guards.

    Ikakos is a member of the socialist globalist fascist left left faction ,Andrews is a memberof the globalist fascist socialist left righ centre left ,like all lefties they hate each other ,throwing her under the bus means he will have to find a replacement from that faction pf the very united party or they will white ant him with the other forty nine factions of the united party its more complicated that that in a united socialist gang ,sorry party . Whatever it takes as the fireman said .

  19. Joanna

    Hopefully Mikakos realises her poiltical career is over and attempts to take Dan down with her. She’s got nothing to lose.

    Can anybody with legal experience tell me if he was in contempt of this enquiry?

    The RETIRED judge chairing the inquiry has no legal authority, so cannot issue writs for contempt or perjury… Indeed, the entire inquiry has no legal or judicial standing whatsoever.

    The whole act of ‘swearing in’ of ‘witnesses’ was nothing more than a piece of sham theatre designed to give the illusion of officialdom, and lull the electorate into thinking that the inquiry would actually deliver any meaningful answers to the question of what actually happened….

  21. Damon

    Someone authorised the contract, so the paper trail will exist. The problem will be to find it.

    As the popular meme says, “haha, shredder goes brrrrrrr…”

  23. yarpos

    Why is this hard?

    A public servant contracted private security.

    Who directed them to tender and contract?

    Go to that person, “on what basis did you issue that instruction?”

    If they point upstream, go to that person , “on what basis did you issue that instruction?”

    Rinse and repeat until you get to the source , or at least till you get to two people pointing at each other

    This would only take a couple of honest people a short time to do?

    Are we really expected to beleive the complete bullshit that we dont know and its unknowable?

  24. Roger

    This would only take a couple of honest people a short time to do?

    I very much doubt that the inquiry’s budget extends to investigators.

    Even though he might think we are at war with a deadly virus, our Premier could never emulate Jack Nicholson, could he?

  26. Colonel Crispin Berka

    The Herald Sun started the rumour on 22 July that a guard had boinked a guest.
    This was one of the allegations that was going to be addressed in Coates’ inquiry.
    We’re several days into this inquiry and still no sexytimes.
    When do we get to hear a yay or nay on this point?

  27. How else was Dan going to do Mikakos but Greek?

  28. Squirrel

    Whether or not there’s a gender angle to this, it’s looking a lot like an orchestrated Politburo fall from grace.

  29. Old Lefty

    Anyone heard from DPP Kerri Judd since the High Court judgement on Pell, or has the Hunchback subjected her to a Darth Vader ‘you have failed me for the last time, Admiral’ moment?

    She richly deserves to be sacked – thlugh not for losing the corrupt and contemptible travesty of a case against Pell, but for prosecuting it in the first place.

  30. H B Bear

    Old Lefty – the problem with that is she might how it ended up with the DPP at all despite being returned to Fatty Ashton’s flying circus recommending against prosecution twice before. No, much better to give everyone a promotion or pay rise and in Juliar’s words move forward.

  31. Leigh Lowe

    Dan is on a Mediterranean cruise.
    He shafted Adem Somyurek and pissed off the Turks.
    Now he has shunted Mikakos under the bus.
    If I was an Itie or Maltese MP, I’d be worried.

  32. Hay Stockard

    I’m sick of Victorians. How those noodle limbed aerial ping pong players stand for this I am at a loss to fathom. Let them form their own North Korean paradise. Close the borders for good.

  33. Fair Shake

    Gotta love that term ‘creeping assumption’. Makes mental note to use in a meeting this week.

  34. Kneel

    “The apparent fact that five months on, no one, including Dan Andrews, is able or willing to reveal who initially suggested that private security guards be used in hotels is a huge clue.”

    I feel sure that they really don’t know – because they specifically arranged matters so that they wouldn’t know. Plausible deniability, see? Just as Uncle Dan arranged such, I’m sure his ministers and senior bureaucrats arranged the same – at least as much as they could. So they might sack the tea lady for suggesting her cousin could do it cheaper, but don’t expect anyone senior to be found at fault – if they are, they are clearly unsuitable for political life.
