It'd be amusing if Lynne Kosky believes its too 'socialist' or too 'weak' to just invest in rail, blissfully unaware that the very same party that she is a member of is building lines in Perth.

Please come to Melbourne and build us a train in Doncaster. Save us from our slow, smelly & cramped buses.

Perth is a great example of improving a cities public transport system from scratch. ie. Perth never had trains lines, that is why they have spent so much money. Investment in Melbourne's trains is crticaslly important, but I am absolutely sick of the Perth example.
