Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to give the budget reply on behalf of the Victorian Greens and the residents of Prahran and not only to give our response to the state government's budget but also to outline our vision and our plan for Victoria. Victoria really is a great place to call home. That is why so many people from interstate and around the world are moving in and coming to Victoria. Now is the time to have the vision and courage to take the next big steps for Victoria: to make the transition to an economy powered by clean energy; to shift to mass transit with a public transport system you can rely on, away from traffic and clogged roads; and to create the new jobs of a 21st century economy to ensure our communities remain livable. It is clear from this budget, just as it has been clear from previous budgets, that Victorians cannot trust the Labor Party or the Liberal Party to deliver on that transition.Read more
It is a real privilege to be able to talk on the Appropriation (2015-2016) Bill 2015 not only in order to give a budget reply but also to outline the vision of the Greens. We are not here to be just a second opposition; we are here to set a high standard and outline our clear vision for Victoria. Our vision is based on fairness, opportunity and equality with an economy that is clean, smart and innovative and that creates meaningful jobs.
