So let me get this straight Kosky, Bracks and assorted pollies. You were looking for a threefold increase in passengers over the next decade or so, yet a 12% increase has so taken you by surprise that you have to pay a fortune to buy back and refurbish 30 year old scrap trains?
If you aren't the most pathetic bunch of morons to ever run this state, please enlighten me as to who outdumbs you.
Peak hour trains are reminiscent of the Mumbai Special even when they run to time - as expressed in this blog many times, a small delay quickly makes them intolerable. So your well thought out reaction is to go and pay through the nose for a handful of junk? You incompetent buffoons!
Get off your fat arses and do the jobs we pay you for.
