Boscutti Report - Andrews launches new $49 plan to ‘break cycle’ of homelessness

MELBOURNE (Boscutti Report) — Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has launched an initiative targeting Victorians sleeping rough in the ongoing battle to combat the chronic issue of homelessness.

Mr Andrews announced a new measure aimed at intervening early in the cycle of homelessness, particularly in high-need regional centres including Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong.

‘Mate, we’ll be giving each and every one of them a fucking one-way airline ticket to Sydney,’ he said.

‘Jetstar has one-way flights for $49.’

A spokesperson said cheaper flights on Tigerair were considered but dismissed on humanitarian grounds.
