Victorian election: Lobster dinner in Matthew Guy’s past haunts him at campaign launch

A group wearing Lobster costumes have showed up to mock Matthew Guy as he kicked off his official campaign launch in Melbourne.

The infamous Lobster Cave dinner with alleged mafia boss Tony Madafferi has been a sore sport for opposition leader since it was first reported in 2017.

A giant inflatable lobster was erected next to the group, who were holding signs that read “don’t pinch free kinder” and “you’d be cray Z to vote Liberal”.

A spokesman for Mr Guy told media at the time the now-opposition leader had been at the dinner, but that he had no input on the guest list and it was “hosted and organised by Liberal Party member and Executive Member of AUSVEG Victoria, Frank Lamattina”.

It’s not the first time Mr Guy has dodged the lobster protesters.

Trades Hall organised a similar protest back in 2017 outside a hotel in Aspendale where he had been due to appear for a community consultation.

Inside the event though, the Coalition was having its own fun.

While party faithful, MPs and candidates gathered at the rally in Port Melbourne, volunteers handed out “frequent liar” cards featuring the image of Premier Daniel Andrews.

Mr Guy told supporters the Labor Party should not be allowed to get away with “a culture of corruption and cover up”.

In his address, he focused on Victoria’s debt, the state’s health system and the vowed to bring down power bills.

“Our real solutions plan … will cap Victoria’s spiralling debt, reward hard working families, help small business and restore integrity and accountability in government,” Mr Guy said.

Early voting for the November 26 election begins on Monday.
