It appears that Ted Baillieu, the Victorian Premier and Leader of the Liberal Party, prefers his environmentally destructive National Party constituency in 'them thar hills' to the constituencies of the more populated Liberal Party electorates of the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. As I said, it appears that the vote in the mountains is worth two, at least, of those in the city. A malapportionment of influence if ever I saw it.
To cut a few long stories very short, the Baillieu Government is running very short on any sort of decent and positive environmental credentials. And they certainly underestimate the love for National Parks across Victoria and the willingness of people to express their wish to protect them.
