Alistair Coe is taking up cudgels on behalf of everyone’s favourite families, the “ordinary working families”.
Alistair’s been hard at work with a calculator (possibly a spreadsheet) and calculates that this beloved species is paying an extra $1169 per year after the Government increases to parking fees and bus fares.
- “Mr Stanhope calls himself the “Mayor of Canberra” and is the Minister for Transport, yet he has been unable to deliver a strategic approach for Canberra’s transport needs. There is nothing strategic about substantially increasing the cost of parking at the same time as substantially increasing bus fares,” said Mr Coe.
Seems like a very strategic way to bring in more money. One wonders what spending Alistair would axe if he went without this extra income?
