You are a stupid c*** of the highest order. Just resign and f*** off.
Andrews Government said they'd like an airport rail link but it's not their highest priority.
Melb Airport said ......a rail option would only work if it tackled the wider issue of congestion. "That means the planning for airport rail must consider the link's role as part of a bigger solution to Melbourne's wider congestion problem." And a detailed feasibility study was needed now".
The Metro project is planned to relieve some of that congestion to thus make the airport link more viable.
Turnbull is playing the same game as his predecessors, saying here's money for something you didn't ask for and has no business case for, as opposed to something you've actually planned and are ready to go with.
We can argue about the airport rail link need, but the offer of funding for it is pure politics.
