Default Baird exaggerates

"'They had *six* transport ministers, they had *nine* transport plans,
they announced *twelve* railways and how many did they deliver?

Absolutely none. They did not deliver a single railway line, and that's
what we saw time in and time out under Labor', Mr Baird said on March 1,


Fact check found that Baird's claim was overstated because they 'built'
three - the airport line[1], the Lilyfield light rail[2] and

[1] thanks to the bipartisan Olympic project committee
[2] trivial, thanks to the corridor already being in place - all they
had to do was lay track and purchase carriages.
[3] only half a line, because the *plan* was Chatswood to Parammatta.

Foster's ABC check says that the ABC is exaggerating, the ALP built only
2 rail lines not 3.

Let's give them 3 rail lines.

It is entertaining to look at the ratios:

1. 'They [the ALP] had *six* transport ministers'
3 lines per 6 ministers = 0.5 rail lines per minister. So to build 12
ALP rail lines, like the ALP announced, you'd have to have *twenty*
*four* ALP ministers.

2. 'they [the ALP] had *nine* transport plans'
3 lines per transport plan, means that you'd need *thirty* *six*
transport plans to get 12 rail lines. At one per year, that would be
impossible because it would require 12 terms of Labor and we'd be
bankrupt after only 2-3.

This is what Australia would look like with the ALP and without iron ore
and coal:

Tax Receipts, Costello: 2003-07: 982,341
Tax Receipts, Swan: 2007-11: 1,174,203

ALP ineptitude = $20b opening balance + $280b closing balance + $191b
more revenue = $491b

So what did Labor leave as a legacy after WASTING $491 BILLION?

ALP versus Jobs:

The Basic Laws of Australian Labor:
"A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a
group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly
incurring losses"

Labor's scorecard:
600,000 more unemployed, 3 minus 3 car manufacturers equals zero,
Whyalla on life support, a decimated aluminium industry, doubled
electricity prices, quarter of a million immigrants and no new
infrasructure, fourteen thousand new pages of legislation, one abuse
hypocritical and silly speech on 'misogyny', four deceased apprentices,
one thousand two hundred drowned asylum seekers, a handbag with an
affinity for being fingered (up the rear) by small Asian women, one
"world's greatest finance minister", three huge unfunded promises,
cancellation of the "$500b investment pipeline", another stolen
generation, 1,000 kids in detention, 50,000 unwanted & unqualified visa
two fraud artists - an MP and an ALP national president, one paedophile
- convicted, that is, one former rape suspect, one lazy Victorian police
force, insufficient evidence, lost evidence, destruction of evidence and
half a trillion dollars of debt, one squandered mining boom
one (um) jumped-up twit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PguhkVG49To),
one minus one democracy (http://www.menzieshouse.com.au/?p=4905) and
last but not least ... the first fat arsed PM in Australian history
