Victoria - The Crime Capital of Australia
6th April 2017
Victoria under Daniel Andrews is now the undisputed crime capital of Australia.
Figures released today show that for the year 2016 crime rates in Victoria increased by 10.2% compared to NSW crime rates which increased by just 0.41%.
Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh said that under two years of Daniel Andrews, crime in Victoria is up 20.17% but in the same time frame in NSW, crime is up only 5.8%.
“These figures are a damning indictment on Daniel Andrews and his soft touch on law and order,” Mr Walsh said.
The Liberal Nationals have announced that in government we will repeal Labor’s watering down of youth bail laws passed in 2016; we will establish a ‘one strike and you’re out’ rule for any Bail breaches as well as establishing a bail system that has the presumption of remand for violent offenders because bail is a privilege, not a right.
Mr Walsh said that under the Liberal Nationals law and order will be a top priority for government in Victoria.
