I never said there will be benefits, I basically said you will never low if you never look and the Minister is entitled to never rule out an option now or in the future. Maybe the govt does a good job, maybe it doesn't. Do you actually know???The Met was burning money, passengers and punctuality if they were not on strike.The rest of this was just a blatant troll Shane, why not answer the question of what benefits the people of SA will see from a fully privatised rail and tram network?
Also the single public authority overseen by a board is the way they go in the USA but you have no idea why it supposedly won't work in Australia because you're overtly against any forms of public ownership and operation... I get that. But it's not best practice.
I have no issue with what your suggesting, the board protects the govt and keeps them at arms length. But the actual operator may or may not be owned by the govt. I dd say in this day and age, having a govt run a suburban railway directly and deal with day to day operations should be over.
No, I am not against govt owned PT, how can you actually privatise (ie sell the lot) an operation that looses money, but do you need govt management?
