    Daniel Andrews took a dip in the polls this week, and within some Labor circles his popularity is sliding too, sources say.

    But while most will keep it quiet, not so veteran ALP life member Garth Head who has called time on the Premier’s rein. Head fired back at Andrews after the Premier mocked his description as a senior Labor figure this week, saying the only person who genuinely thought that was Head himself.
    “I’m shocked and hurt!” Head said, sarcastically.

    “I know Dan doesn’t like truth telling over factional spin and personal attacks, but to coin a phrase ‘It’s Time’.
    “Daniel’s rise to power, and that of his cohorts, was based on corrupt branch stacking, not multiple recruitment in accordance with Party Rules.

    “Young Daniel, who had always been paid for his earlier nefarious activities in the ALP as an electorate officer, then as a Party paid official (splitting his time working for the Socialist Left branch stacking and directing internal campaigns and sometimes for the ALP) then as an SL MP based on numbers largely derived by branch stacking, then SL ticket Minister and then Opposition Leader because the Right was divided and through Liberal incompetence becomes and remains Premier,” he said.
    “Never a volunteer but always personally ambitious.”

    There is no love lost between Head and Andrews, clearly, with their frosty relationship done no favours over the 2020 merger of the fire services, in which Head fought for the rights of volunteer CFA workers.

    But Head’s clearly not the only one losing patience with the Premier, with polling this week showing his net likeability fell to minus seven. Still more liked than the alternative, it must be said.
