What does Luke Donnellan say about country Victorians? ‘Dingbats’, ‘banjo playing conspiracy theorists’ and ‘better than a kick in the d—k’

Read what Luke Donnellan say about country Victorians.

It’s no wonder country Victoria has been neglected on road funding when Daniel Andrews’ Roads Minister has no respect for people who live in country Victoria.

In just the last few weeks, Luke Donnellan has described regional Victorians as "dingbats" and "banjo playing conspiracy theorists" and today it was revealed he told the Corangamite Shire Council mayor that his offer of local roads funding was "better than a kick in the d**k".

Luke Donnellan’s bizarre claim in Parliament that he meant to say it was "better than a kick in the head" is a poor reflection on a government which claims to have made tackling family violence its top priority.

Daniel Andrews claims the standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

By backing Luke Donnellan today, Daniel Andrews has sent a message it’s okay for one of his Cabinet Ministers to denigrate and disrespect country Victorians.
