Irate Victorian voter launches an election day tirade at Daniel Andrews for his ‘me me me’ style: ‘He deflects a lot of blame’
- Victorian voter slammed Premier Dan Andrews for his ‘me, me, me’ attitude
- He has faced criticism for enforcing one of the world’s longest Covid lockdowns
- Mr Andrews’s ability to deflect blame has earned him the nickname ‘teflon Dan’
- Other voters said they’d go Labor for its better Medicare and housing policies
An outraged Victorian voter has slammed Dan Andrews for his ‘me, me, me’ attitude while heading to cast his vote at the state election.
Millions of Victorians flocked to the polls on Saturday for the 2022 election for the state’s 60th Parliament.
And one man said he was tired of the Premier’s ‘false promises’ and would be casting his vote elsewhere.
‘I’ll be voting for Matthew Guy because I just don’t trust Dan with anything,’ he told a Sky News reporter.
‘A lot of me, me, me with Dan Andrews he’s not a leader, I can’t get invested in him because I think he deflects a lot of blame when he’s the one responsible for a lot of things.’

Newspoll votes show Dan Andrews (above) is likely to remain the state’s Premier despite facing criticism for how his party handled the Covid pandemic
Mr Andrews has faced harsh criticism for his strict rules during the Covid pandemic which was Victorians suffer through one of the longest lockdowns in the world.
His ability to steer blame for the decision away from himself has earned him the nickname ‘teflon Dan’ among critics.
While the decisions have taken a hit on his popularity, Newspoll results from The Australian show Labor is still voters preferred party.
The poll found Labor led over the Coalition 54.5 per cent to 45.5 per cent in a two-party vote.
Labor was also ahead in the polled primary vote with 38 per cent while the Coalition has 35 per cent. The Greens claimed 12 per cent while independents collected 15 per cent.
Other voters said Labor’s policies, specifically its plans to strengthen the Medicare system and build more affordable housing, put it ahead of other parties.
However, another voter said choosing between Labor or the Coalition was like trying to choose ‘the lesser of two evils’.
Many voters faced massive queues at polling stations on Saturday but the Victorian Electoral Commission promised anyone in line by 6pm will still be allowed to vote.
If Dan Andrews is voted in he will be among the top five longest-serving premiers in Victoria and entitled to erect a bronze statue of himself outside parliament.
