SA Libs confirm they're selling off the tram and train services. Can anyone remember what happened to them when they privatized everything at their last go? Me too. Goodbye, muppets, thanks for ******* things up further.

________________________________________________

The South Australian Government has revealed plans to privatise the operation of Adelaide's train and tram services.

It says it will still own and control "rail assets", including trains, trams, tracks and stations, and will continue to set the fare price for travel.

Transport Minister Stephan Knoll said Adelaide's public transport network was underperforming, with one of the lowest patronage levels in the country.

He said the new model would deliver more efficient services.

"We know that public transport patronage growth has stalled, and customers want a better level of services than is currently provided — and the Marshall Government agrees with our customers."

Bus services were privatised in the year 2000, by then Liberal premier John Olsen.

Mr Knoll said service frequency would be guaranteed and service standards would increase under the new model.

"We will be able to deliver more efficient services so we can reinvest back into the network to provide better services," he said.

Fully privatised public transport - would do wonders for local car sales, pity we don't build cars here anymore.

It has worked really well with the bus system at the moment. Less services and less quality in service that costs more.

Maybe Transfield will bid for it. They can fully **** up another system in Adelaide.

Thisnis truly going to be great for Adelaide and great for SA.

We should privatise more sevices, I reckon we have a water utility that we still own that we should sell off as well. In fact I'm am a bit surprised that there is a for sale sign at Victoria square right now.

I am beginning to wonder whether Lucas can be even more a f***wit than his predecessor.
And that’s saying something because he took it to even greater heights than Weatherill and Snelling!

Political analyst on ABC radio, Prof ????? said he should be gone. Clear breach of ministerial code of conduct and monumentally stupid.

However he said he would not resign, Marshall unlikely to sack so move on.

Now, if he leaked to a journo......

Wade always sounds terrible, to me he sounds like he’s really nervous. Doesn’t project a sense of authority or confidence.

Then again, with that voice I’d rather he was the health minister than a health practitioner.

Lib Govt plans to overturn the archaic GM moratorium. Whetstone will prove to be one of SA's most valuable ministers in over a decade if this gets through.

Victoria are always prone to Blackout over summer. You recall that SA just had a summer with some of the hottest days on record and the lights stayed on expect for local failures on equipment. Which is actually one of the biggest concerns in SA in that old crap shitting itself.

This was because the RERT policy was implemented by Aemo which meant the 2 x 100MW power stations ran in anger for the first time. Essentially what they were designed for.

These units will be sold off soon and will then run like thr other diesel power stations in SA as peaking ststions. They are peoposed to be moved to other locstions and converted to gas and will then be another market player, albeit smaller one.

We have a new liberal government and still where is the energy policy. 5 months and nothing but let's look at the interconnector to a state that is a net importer in NSW.

In saying that Victoria can import a fair bit from NSW if QLD are up and about. SA and Vic are capped at 650MW I believe. They can get a bit from Tassie as well via basslink.

Honestly QLD powers this country at times it really does.

I get there are people out there, particularly liberals, who oppose the Marshall government's land tax reforms on the basis it's anti-liberal and a threat to the economy.

However, I'm not sure starting up a political party in protest, called the "True Liberals," is the way to get what you want.

So their target vote is people who own two or more investment properties who oppose the changes.

They are bound to get hundreds of votes. Hundreds.

My only objection to the proposal to revise the application of land tax is applying it retrospectively, apart from perhaps being concerned about how rapidly the tax rises with increasing holdings. The big investors can probably cope with the restrospectivity, or a significantly higher total rate, but I'm concerned about those whose major provision for their retirement has been property investment accumulated over many years under the old rules. One I know was a technician doing regional geographical survey work in the SA public service who had poured everything he had into that as his superannuation plan.

The other thing that irritates me is the dishonesty implicit in coming up with the idea after the election. It smacks of another piece of dishonesty that is rife - disguised Land Tax on the primary residence disguised as "supply charges" - charges that vary with the value of the property are taxes not "supply charges".
