Government hates your family. More Coe Revelations

By johnboy 11 November 2011 41

The Liberals Alistair Coe is leaping upon a 2010 Government study which he believes shows that Canberra is of the car, for the car, and ever to be devoted to the car.

A buried government-commissioned report into the ACT’s parking supply has confirmed Canberra’s parking situation disadvantages families.

“ACT Labor refuses to acknowledge that Canberra was built for the car and that needs to be met with proper planning,” ACT Shadow Transport Services Minister Coe said today.

“For many Canberra families, catching a bus is not an option. ACTION is unreliable, expensive, and simply not viable when you have children to drop off at different locations.

“But ACT Labor is ignoring the needs of Canberra families and instead continues to raise the price of parking in a revenue-raising effort to “dissuade” people from driving.

It is true that if one has utterly failed to organise any aspect of one’s life then vast amounts of driving and parking is required to overcome that.

What’s Your opinion?

Is it true that when one speaks in the first person they are showing their far superior intellect?
Hello! Not everyone is able bodied and has hours and hours to spare azttempting to use public transport that is late, non existant or drives right by in peak hour.

Which is why it would be good if the able bodied sorted their crap out to take pressure off services for the less fortunate.

Now i’m really confused! JB, were you initially saying people should be more organised (‘sort their crap out’) and takes buses to avoid driving and parking??
And then did you mean able-bodied people should ‘sort their crap out’ and NOT takes buses (to take pressure off services?)
I’m not sure what other ‘take pressure off services’ you mean in regards to buses and parking – which is what the story was about? Unless too many able-bodied people are taking carpark ‘services’?
Confused – again! 😛
