New State government in Victoria, eh? We’re really turning governments over, n’est-pas? Probably too much to expect they’ll be able to kick goals when they’re just as far away as ever from funding a big infrastructure program from the uplift in value it will bring. (Doesn’t that mean more taxes, or debt – or both?)
For that matter, will Tony Abbott’s $3bn for the East-West Link still be available for other capital works if new premier Dan Andrews cancels the project ?
And the feds are still wrestling with the last budget just as the new one is beginning to emerge over the horizon.
Welcome to new-politics-Oz: the morass.
And now the ‘silly season’ is upon us, too?
