The Victorian Liberal Party have spent the night preparing a rubber stamp, in anticipation of waving through Daniel Andrews’ permanent pandemic legislation.
The legislation, named the ‘I can’t believe it’s not a coup’ Act will give the ALP permanent emergency powers up to the lead up of the 2022 election. The LNP say they stand ready to approve the legislation at a moment’s notice.
“We did our best pretending to care last week with the and then punishing those members of our party that dissented,” Opposition Leader Matthew Guy.
“Pretending to be in opposition is actually harder than opposing. However, we’ll have the normal speeches ready to go about ‘how we oppose this but we’ll vote for it anyway’ type deal.’
Fiona Patten will temporarily come out of witness protection to vote on the legislation, before fleeing the country permanently.
