''Ted Baillieu has called Victorians racist,'' Education Minister Bronwyn Pike said. ''I'd like to ask Ted Baillieu to name those racist people, maybe it's my next door neighbour, maybe it's someone's mum and dad, maybe it's somebody's friends.''Maybe it's the people I overheard today, discussing the Chinese New Year celebrations in Box Hill:
Man: They get the city-bound lane of Whitehorse Road blocked off.
Woman: So nobody runs them over!
Man: Yeah, although they wouldn't miss a few.
Woman (affecting sarcasm): What a shame that would be.
Man: Nobody's going to be scoring any points tonight!
