Hands Up Who is Surprised?

Anyone? ... No I didnt't think so.

New train, tram operators for Melbourne

Connex has been stripped of its contract to operate Melbourne's train system, with Hong Kong-backed company Metro Trains Melbourne to take its place.

The city's trams will also have a new operator with Keolis Downer EDI ousting the incumbent Yarra Trams as the government's preferred tenderer.

Yarra Trams is a small suprise but Connex was a no-brainer. Of course also the opposition are asking for Kosky's head on a spike as well. Always tough when you make a big change like this as a minister. If you leave the status quo you are seen to be inactive, yet if you do change you are seen to have made a mistake.

I'm surprised Lynney-baby stayed awake long enough during the tendering process to take notice of what was being said.

Jayne - Yep It will be interesitng how she stands up during the remainder of the process.

Margarita - My interest in Bolt is to cut down some of his arguments to show how much of a fuckwith he really is. Click on the blog articles with Bolt as a tag and you will see some of my work. I have also had things published in the likes of Crikey about him.
