Daniel Andrews has announced all Victorians will receive a free tent in order to alleviate wait times at hospitals and for Ambulances, as part of a re-election bid.
The full details of the announcement indicated tents would be made free to all Victorians to combat the crisis in the hospital system, after extraordinary scenes of patients waiting at Box Hill hospital sparked the call to action.
“I would like to thank all the health care workers who will also get a free tent to sleep in at the hospital between shifts,” Andrews said.
“No-one had the ALP destroying Medicare and public health on their bingo cards for 2022 but I’m not surprised. We’re all ready for another 200,000 migrants a year!”
Meanwhile, Matthew Guy has also announced that all Victorians will receive free tents but next year as a counter offer, in line with the six-month lag time for conservatives adopting progressive positions policy.
