Is the cancellation of the East-West Link the worst case of wasting taxpayer money? Anna Burke responds #QandA http://t.co/p5ssPmXCl2

From Q&A (20 April 2015), an audience member attempts to do a Bjorn Again in regards to East West Link and receives a blunt answer from Anna Burke MP about stopping an apparent “cheque” being written. The audience reaction at 1.27 mark when Anna mentions the light rail should be built along the Eastern pretty much speaks for itself.
“EAST-WEST CANCELLATION: John Tyrrell asked: I’ve been running a small business for over 30 years, and don’t mind paying tax as long as it is used properly. But to see hundreds of millions of our taxes blatantly and unnecessarily wasted by the new Vic govt to cancel the East West link is extremely frustrating when everyone knows it has to be built and WILL be built one day. Is this the worst decision you have seen from a State Government, and can anyone tell me how can we stop Daniel (Andrews, Premier of VIC) writing that cheque?”
