From Senator Janet Rice: "After revelations the consortium contracted to build the East West toll road wrote their own side letter ensuring exorbitant compensation, Senator Rice asks whether the federal government was aware of who had drafted the letter at the time and whether they will continue funding other toll roads like WestConnex in Sydney" https://www.facebook.com/Janet.Rice.Greens
This is further proof highlighting an even more dangerous and narcissistic conduct from Napthine. There are no principles or morale from this 'government'
It's a warning to us all about how far they were going behind our backs.
This is not a government, these are mouthpieces, puppets strung by greedy 'men', blind obedience to the slight demands.
We are not being governed, we are being dictated, and it's not the by the ones who were in government, and now in opposition, it's the ones to whom the opposition submits to and in turn these 'men' dominate us, through the likes of Guy and O'Brien.
Their business with us was spent instead of honesty and integrity to together find a solution to advance forward, creating megaphones and machinations, designed to viciously shut down those who took a public stand against foul conduct and groups/organizations to raise awareness. You all can see this as one example, through the passing of the 'Move On' laws, the laws that Geoff Shaw voted in favour for.
The damage would have been far worse if it were not the democratic elections and the ability to vote down bills. Even with that, it would not stop these obscenities in the Victorian Liberal Party from eroding the principles the democratic system is designed to uphold in every individual.
Now that we've seen the conduct these 'people' imposed on us without the majority will of the people, and without explanation of their decisions, we need to be aware in the future elections what they did to this state. They are still there barking from the seats of opposition, obscenely howling to come back into government.
The longer it takes for people to realize the stark reality of these 'people' plotting with cunning, lust for power and greed at their center instead of embracing their positions as privilege the further society continues to suffer. We will be destined to vote back in these wolves if we are not vigilant in looking under the sheep skin of every candidate who come asking us for our hand.
Today as we continue and as it seems, we have averted this disaster for now, the premier announces the Metro Rail Tunnel is being prepared, but there is the challenge to obtain funding for it's construction, as it is not being supported from the commonwealth. However, as the transport planners who worked under Napthine as Premier, the cost benefit would return $1.90 for every dollar spent.
Meanwhile, the volumes of vehicles of the Eastern Freeway continue to struggle, motorists still having no choice but to drag along without any alternative, the solution still waiting to come to them, a solution that many already know. To the State Parliament of Victoria, that solution is yet to be heard.
When that will happen we are all unsure, tonight as I write this post, the news talks about the government planning to alter intersections in Hoddle St, to create more as they claim, 'efficient traffic flow'
As the state looks on as this term of government gets underway, optimism, I still have, but without any action to implement a solution to the chronic peak hour traffic congestion at the west end of the Eastern Freeway condemns the motorists desperately needing an alternative to suffer longer and as the population builds, the strain on them will continue to prolong further.
