Victoria’s premier Daniel Andrews has accused some politicians of ‘currying favour’ with ‘ugly extremists’ who have been protesting the state’s pandemic powers bill on the steps of parliament. ‘Politics is often about what you stand for and it’s always about who you stand with,’ Andrews said. A small group of protesters made a makeshift gallows outside the state parliament with an effigy of the premier on Monday night. Andrews said in response: ‘I don’t think that ordinary, hard-working, mainstream Victorians … will easily or readily forget who has been out on the front steps currying favour with extremists.’
