Jacinta Allan’s reverse midas-touch

Jacinta Allan has developed a reverse Midas-touch, with everything she touches turning to chaos.

Whether it be her inability to make a decision about Uber, the cancellation of thousands of V/Line train services, the unilateral decision to run cheap and nasty Sky Rail above family homes, the still unfunded and unstarted Metro Rail project, her axing of a train line to Melbourne Airport or the first train and tram strikes in a generation.

Today we learn that Melbourne is on the verge of being plunged into yet another train strike on Allan’s watch and that she has a secret plan to double the size of her cheap and nasty Sky Rail.

Worse still, Jacinta Allan is Daniel Andrews’ Employment Minister, and on top of all of this transport chaos she is overseeing a jobs crisis in Victoria.

Allan’s only achievement after 15 months in Government has been to establish herself a private lounge at Bendigo train station so she won’t have to face the Victorian people.

Victorians deserve better than Jacinta Allan’s arrogance and ineptitude
