YarraLife Carries The Story On Bracks Government Failures

Melbourne blog Yarralife has the story on how Bracks government mismanagement of public transport and the Commonwealth Games.

Not only is the public transport system, the lynchpin of Brack's Melbourne 2030 plan, apparently already generating peak loads in excess of the capacity of the system; but the Bracks government is locking real Victorians, tax-paying Victorians, out of nine major sporting venues over the period of the Commonwealth Games. Commonwealth Games which have not only gobbled up large amounts of public subsidies; but will not acheive the stated aim of raising Victoria's profile. Pin Oak Court in Vermont, home of the Neighbours houses, has generated more tourism dollars for this State than any taxpayer funded television dud ever will.
