Extra money going to buses

By GnT 14 November 2007 67

The ACT government earned more money than predicted this year, so they’ve released a second budget promising $75 million to fix the public transport system.

There is no doubt ACTION needs it, after the government massively slashed bus services and completely stuffed up the system last year. Ther’s also little doubt the public would prefer better services ahead of tax cuts, as demonstrated by a comprehensive survey here on RiotACT.

However I’m a little confused. Only 18 months ago the territory was in dire straits financially and had to close 39 schools. What is the truth about our financial situation?

What’s Your opinion?

From ‘dictionary.com’
Hyperbole:
1. obvious and intentional exaggeration.
2. an extravagant statement or figure of speech not intended to be taken literally, as “to wait an eternity.”

They even have a word for it! I’ve learnt something today.

Nyssa, your idiocy certainly teaches people.
