After months of fierce competition for the honour of representing Melbourne Ports in the 45th Parliament, it is now beyond any doubt that Labor’s Michael Danby will retain the seat.

Our Sydney Prime Minister, the member for Wentworth, just like the last Sydney Prime Minister, the Sydney Treasurers and their Sydney major projects ministers are doing an exceptionally good job in disadvantaging Melbourne.
