Peta Credlin explores the motivations, the myths and the mystery behind Victoria’s all-powerful Premier; his rise to prominence, his hard-left agenda and just why Daniel Andrews has such a hold on the state.
For some, Andrews’ eight-year reign has been the worst in Victoria’s history: the inquiries and the judgments against his government, the crumbling health and ambulance system, the deaths, the crippling debt, and the broken promises.
For others, despite the longest COVID lockdown in the world, he can do no wrong. His government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, a disastrous hotel quarantine programme and extended lockdowns have strangled the state, yet Andrews’ popularity has seemingly not waned. As Labor leader, he’s let nothing stand in his way.
Ahead of the Victorian State Election on Saturday 26 November, the special investigation features interviews with prominent insiders, plus explosive revelations from whistleblowers. It will tell the story of Andrews power and why his grip on Victoria is like nothing we’ve ever seen before in Australia.
