We don't back down.

We promised to fight every single day for the $1.5 billion Victorians were owed.

The Liberals said we should be happy with whatever crumbs fell our way.

But we weren't copping that. We told the Federal Government that our fight would simply continue until we saw results.

And guess what?

It took almost an entire year, but yesterday Malcolm Turnbull wrote to me and...

No, this isn't 2001: A Space Odyssey.

It's Melbourne's City Loop under construction in 1978.

It's a bit full now, so we're building the Metro Tunnel.

Last year, a rare form of meningococcal spread across Victoria.

Incredibly, the Turnbull Government refused to help us fight it – so we went it alone and funded a free vaccine.

I can now proudly report that 51,000 of these vaccinations have been delivered to the Victorian kids most at risk from this horrible disease.

NOTE: The free vaccine is available until December 31 from your local GP...

Here's an example of the sort of stigma that autistic children and their families have had to overcome:

"Tom was diagnosed at age two. At the time, Tom was often cast as a 'bad child' for his behaviour, and Ms Knight as a 'bad mother'."

So we can't let hurtful comments take us backwards.

Sharon Knight has so much love for her kids.

And our society has plenty of room in our hearts and our...

Elliot is eight (almost nine).

He wrote me the best letter I've ever received (six pages, both sides, brown texta).

And he has a talent: he can reel off literally every single detail about every single public transport project we're building across Victoria.

So I gave him my number.

He'll be my eyes and ears on the ground.

I expect regular updates about our level crossing removals, with...

An extraordinary moment in Parliament this week.

For the first time in Victoria's history, a law was introduced in both English and an Indigenous language.

And for the first time in Australian history, a river (the Yarra/Birrarung) and all the lands it flows through will be recognised by law as a single living entity – to be protected and preserved for all Victorians.

BREAKING:

Our bill to abolish stamp duty for first-home buyers just passed Parliament a few moments ago.

This is a big change – but it's the right change.

We're helping first-home buyers compete against cashed-up investors.

And we make no apology for that.

The good news first:

The Metro Tunnel will completely change our public transport system.

It'll create a 'turn-up-and-go' network where trains come so often that you can throw away the timetable.

The bad news is that it'll cause a lot of disruption while we build the thing.

I am genuinely sorry for the inconvenience.

But our Government is all about getting things done.

There's a lot of...

"Five and a half years ago, we lost our son...Finally there's a recognition and there's a space where we can come and reflect."

Dianne's son, Christian, was awarded a posthumous award for bravery.

He saved a young girl's life at a level crossing, but lost his own.

And after meeting his mum, I can see where he got his courage.

We now have a memorial to all those Victorians who lost their...

Good call.

How many people have a parent or grandparent who speaks a different language around the house?

Willing to bet they couldn't speak university-level English when they arrived in this country.

That doesn't make them any less Australian than you or me.

But Malcolm Turnbull thinks it does.

We take a different approach in Victoria.
