SMS message topics: Parkville West issues in limbo, Take it to a vote, LMA is a government authority, eg: handballing the issue, East West Link not for benefit of Victoria.

    Oh great. The Planning Minister did not listen to the Planning Panel he approved of. he was making excuses to reject findings and now the LMA has the scope to play with people’s lives. The LMA will now say talk to the Planning Minister while the Planning Minister will now say talk to LMA.

    This initial stage 1 $4B project will be a $12B project. You can imagine how Melbourne’s future is looking now. It is run by people with no idea. I imagined that the Planning Minister being in the seat of Bulleen surely understood that there is a badly needed train line in that area. I imagine he expects 12 years olds to drive along the EW Link and pay a toll too.

    Dear Its me Mario,
    your attack on the planning Minister was completely uncalled for.
    To make fun of a retard is not politically correct.
    It would have been better to say that the Minister does not understand that in the next century we will all travel on public transport.Imported bullet proof Ministerial Cars will be the few cars seen in the City of Melbourne.
