$10 million for Trades Hall, but none to fight car jackings

Premier Andrews can find $10 million of taxpayers’ money to tip into refurbishing his union backers’ HQ, but he turns down a plea by police for $300,000 to fight violent car jackings.

Let’s hope Bill Shorten never gets the chance to use public money to give favours like this.
