This could take another 5 years, it has already been two. if you had bought one of these you could be dead by the time they finish. He just go...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

So ... the previous Liberal Government sold our power generation and delivery network to the private sector, telling us it would result in cheaper electricity prices and better service.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams
