Can Victorians trust Daniel Andrews with their private information on Energy Saver website?

Victorians who have registered on the Energy Saver website will be rightly concerned that their private information won’t be used for political purposes by the Andrews Labor Government.

The Minister for Energy, Lily D’Ambrosio, who is herself under police investigation by the Fraud and Extortion Squad for rorting taxpayers’ money, needs to give Victorians a guarantee that she will not authorise the abuse of personal information for political purposes.

Daniel Andrews’ decision to use the public service to leak confidential information for political payback has resulted in a massive privacy breach of innocent Victorians.

Former Privacy Commissioner Prof David Watts has told 3AW that because of Daniel Andrews’ breach of privacy, Victorian taxpayers could be facing a class action and the damages could be in the millions.

Whether it is stolen dictaphones, rorting taxpayers’ money for political campaigns or hacking into political opponents payroll information, there is no line this Premier won’t cross.

Any Victorian signing up to Labor’s $50 energy marketing scheme could find themselves the next victim of a personal data breach under Daniel Andrews.
