Selene Routley hat diese Petition an The President of the Labor Party in Australa und gestartet.

We, the undersigned, call on you to demand the resignation of Daniel Andrews and his leadership. Until he, his arrogance, his incompetence and his shocking lack of imagination are gone, we will will only consider voting informally at the next state election, because we will never hand our preferences to someone who shows such contempt for democracy and accountability, who does not take responsibility for his government's utterly incompetent handling of quarantine in Victoria, whose imagination falls far short of the proud tradition of progressive reform that is Labor's history, and, through the necessary measures to clean his mess up, has smashed hundreds of thousands of lives and through his gross miscalculations has outright cut short and taken hundreds of other lives, leaving misery and grief in his wake. 

Thanks partly to the complicity of the Labor Party, a Langer vote is no longer formal in Australia, so we consider Daniel Andrews to be a block to our democratic choice, for he makes a formal vote impossible for us.

Tyrants must never be rewarded. Incompetence must never be rewarded. Australia had it easy in controlling COVID-19 - it is an island - and yet our leadership has still messed up in one of the easiest COVID management problems on the planet. A private security company was employed to run a makeshift, punitive quarantine system in hotels. So much trust was naïvely afforded to a contractor who has one and only one goal - to secure its payment for its shareholders with minimum expenditure and maximum profit. This is not only a goal for a contractor corporation, but a legal obligation. To assume such an entity can be at all trusted to self regulate, to fail to impose the most rigorous review of the training of its staff and its practices, is a breathtaking level of professional negligence and everyday professionals who secure contractor services in industry would never keep their jobs for such negligence. It borders on criminal negligence, for the consequences of this lack of proper review has been loss of life. It is therefore not too far of a stretch to claim Premier Andrews and his leadership have blood on their hands. This phantasy of the trustworthy and hallowed corporation is part of the sickness that is the obsession with privatization of human services that deludes all sides of politics in Australia.

In contrast with the hallowed corporation, the private citizen has been treated as a criminal. No trust has been afforded to the people of Victoria. Premier Andrews endlessly seeks scapegoats: "irresponsible" young adults and "disappointing" citizens to deflect attention from his own irresponsibility. Police now raid people for even daring to propose protest. Attempts are made to seize control of government without review for outrageous periods. Premier Andrews fails to understand that one of the keys to compliance is to gain people's trust instead of berating them for his own shortfallings. Premier Andrews believes he is above review and accountability. He is therefore completely untrustworthy. Such arrogance would have no place in a healthy democracy, even if it were coupled with competence. 

If Labor can be rid of this blight, we who do not wish to see the right regain power in this land will again be able to preference your party before others. But until Daniel Andrews and his leadership are gone, your party will remain for us unelectable.
