Government ‘complacent’ without ‘a strong opposition’

  Government ‘complacent’ without ‘a strong opposition’ Sky News host Rita Panahi has outlined why good governments need a strong opposition, saying a government can become complacent “without a viable alternative snapping at its heels”. Ms Panahi said this has been evident in Victoria, where “the opposition has failed to lay a glove on” the Andrews Government.“Next weekend marks the one-year anniversary of the Victorian election and one can safely say that if a poll were held today Labor would win again in a landslide,” she said.

A review of the Victorian Liberals 2018 state election campaign has found the opposition leader's dinner with an alleged mobster contributed to the loss.© AAP Images A review of the Victorian Liberals 2018 state election campaign has found the opposition leader's dinner with an alleged mobster contributed to the loss.

An infamous "lobster with a mobster" dinner with then-Victorian Liberal leader Matthew Guy helped cause a landslide 2018 state election loss, an internal review has found.

The review into the campaign, led by Liberal elder statesman Tony Nutt, found Mr Guy's dinner with alleged mafia boss Tony Madafferi in the months leading up to the November election undermined the party's 'tough on crime' policies.

"It was used repeatedly and effectively to undermine him, obscure genuine concerns about community safety and protect Labor from Parliamentary scrutiny," the review released on Wednesday said.

Lobster Mobster and Da Shrimp are recurring antagonists from The Little Mermaid television series. They are bumbling con-artists and constantly antagonize Ariel and her friends. They are modeled after the stereotypes of the gangsters from the 1920s. Their first appearance was in the episode, "Urchin".

Liberals responsible for organising the dinner and also leaking details of it are described in the review as "guilty of utter stupidity" and they "carry a heavy burden for the enormous damage done to Matthew Guy and the opposition team".

Mr Madafferi is widely accused of being a high-level organised crime figure, but he has never been charged or convicted and strenuously denies any allegations.

The review also found the Liberals' "African gangs" scare campaign fell flat, with voters seeing it as "political tactic" rather than a plan to make the state safer.

Research conducted shortly after the November election showed only six per cent of voters claimed it actually influenced their vote - and not necessarily in the Liberals' favour.

The leadership coup against former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, who was popular in the state, also affected "fundraising, membership recruitment and retention and campaign preparations".

"Thirty per cent of voters in Victorian electorates that were lost to Labor on the 24th (of) November stated that they could not vote for the Liberal Party because of the removal of Malcolm Turnbull," the review said.

"Party research was reflected in the on-ground experience of many MPs, candidates, volunteers and staff who received strong 'push back' even after they patiently explained to individual voters that as state Liberals they had no role in the federal leadership."

The review hands down 41 recommendations to put the party on track to win at the 2022 election, including that the party identify seats it can win once electoral boundaries are redrawn.

Incumbent Premier Daniel Andrews swept to a surprise landslide victory after only winning power with a slight majority in 2014.
