Labor opposing East West Link - good news, at least for me.
Hey cool dude....happy for you....so your guys are gonna direct preferences
to the CFMEU party now?
You must live within 10 k of the CBD or dont work in the CBD...cool, happy
you can afford the rent and or the real estate..a vast majority of us have
to live in the burbs cos we can't.
strange. It is up to the government in power to create
certainty - by
waiting with the contracts until after the election.
The process is before the courts because the link did not go through a
proper planning, assessment and consultation process yet. The lack of
process created the uncertainty.
Are you 11 yrs old perhaps? You probably were not around when Bracks
declared emphatically...MANY times before an election that he would kill
tolls on the East West Link...AND that he had a legal mandate to do so.
The statement contributed to his successful election..but in the end it was
farcical to say such and all it took was a couple of well paid spin doctors
to get him out of it !
...and here's the trick...that same BS happens on every side of polltix...
they all treat us "party polltix is crap people" like sheep!
So the government can correct it by honouring process. This would make it
a decision made by a government which asked for a mandate from the
Below my letter to Terry Mulder (terence.mulder(a)parliament.vic.gov.au).
Maybe you would like to contact him too?
Hey sure, and perhaps you could grow a pair and stand on the corner of
Hoddle St and the Eastern Freeway offramp one week day from 6am to 10am
wearing a breadboard declaring your support for such brown nosing, click
bait tripe.... or perhaps climb a pole on the Westgate Bridge and do the
same when traffic is banked up halfway to Geelong cos a car or truck is
broken down in the tunnel.
The pathetic use of this computing based user group to promote polltix from
all sides shits me greatly!
Suggest you go back to getting friends to write fake letters to the editor
in your local newspaper to influence opinion.
Your masters know this had great affect a decade ago.
If Daniel Andrews is elected and does stop this project within 12 mths I
will walk Bourke St from end to end naked! ... and you are very welcome to
hold me to that. :-)
Do you actually do computing or is this just another mailing list your
polltix masters dictate you should post to after they feed you the bullet
points on the astroturfed argument de jour?
the Labor decision to dump the East West Link is a good one for us in
Please cancel the project if you care for Victoria. It may save hundred of
millions or billions of dollars of claims when the project finally ends in
the bin, as it should.
The East West Link is not a properly planned project. I contacted you
about my concerns. Some of the events and claims are truly bizarre if you
are familiar with the area as I am.
I work in Kensington. I frequently use the bike track along the Mooney
Creek you want to overshadow with another bunch of lanes. I also spend a
of time waiting for and in trains from and to Craigieburn and Upfield which
never go on time.
It is not a surprise that the whole case is before the courts. The rush to
lock it in resulted in a shoddy process which defies logic and did never
satisfy requirements of proper consulting with the public. Even now, the
design is still work in progress, and some of the "corrections" over time
looked as professional as me designing a model train with my son. How can
this being assessed? How can the community have a sufficient input in this
How can you sign contracts with this uncertainty? It will be a liability
any future government and all Victorians.
A tender process where you continue with one bidder only is another detail
not making sense. I never do that if I want a good deal.
You were elected with the Liberals claiming support for the Metro Rail
You did not advance the project. Instead it became another train wreck of
"planning on the run".
Please bring that back into action instead of tinkering with the East West
Link if you want to do something for Victoria.
