The Nationals today unite to call out the hoax that is the SEC, re-branding the State Electricity Commission “Soaring Energy Costs”.
MPs wore branded hats, which were the brain-child of The Nationals’ Member for Morwell, Martin Cameron, who has witnessed the SEC con job first-hand.
Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains, Peter Walsh, says the SEC is a “just a hoax for Victorian consumers”.
“Martin Cameron has come up with a great idea to explain actually what the SEC stands for and it’s Soaring Energy Costs,” Mr Walsh says.
“There’s no way known we’re going to see costs for electricity come down under the Allan Labor Government. It’s just a hoax for Victorian consumers.”
Mr Cameron, who represents the former SEC’s heartland, says he is tired of the government’s spruiking.
“We’re going to call them out on it. The SEC stands for nothing but Soaring Energy Costs these days,” Mr Cameron says.
“We’re meant to have the main office of the SEC in Morwell. I don’t think there’s anyone working there. It’s all a bluff that was dropped before the last election as a vote grab.
”Just remember the SEC is Soaring Energy Costs. It’s not going to bring our prices down.”
