Government has no plan for Brimbank - Greens

Greens MLC Colleen Hartland says the government has "absolutely no plan for Brimbank" following the sacking of Brimbank Council today in Parliament.

"What came out in Parliament today was completely bizarre", said Ms Hartland

"The administrators will negotiate their salaries with the Minister, then decide what to cut from the budget to pay for it.  We could lose a park over this."

Arguably the most important show in human history

"*Rod* says everything you want to say. Everything you want to scream. He's right, but *Bugger The Polar Bears - This Is Serious* is more than just catharsis for greenies. Much more" ..
