I can't help saying "I (and others on this site) told you so." This is par for the course of 'Liberal' (really 'Right Wing Conservative') governments since the days when Tom Playford's progressive infrastructure policies in building this state's welfare were thrown out the window by his big business, privatization of national taxpayer funded assets, and foreign ownership serving successors.
I wish that South Australia, which has historically received less than its fair share of Commonwealth funds, could impose tolls on all traffic crossing this state. Maybe we could look seriously at establishing a nuclear waste burial programme in our geologically stable wastelands to the North and make sure that all of the proceeds are spent here.
If I sound bitter, it's because I am. This country is one of the world's most fortunate, and its national debt is very low in comparison with most, yet the Murdoch Media managed to fool the lumpen proletariat into delivering us into the greedy claws of this mob of Howard era failed has beens. Watch out for the further theft of our assets in favour of their mates. Meanwhile our third grade rail infrastructure is a bad joke and a national disgrace.
