Public transport > CITV

I liked Vexed's post regarding the usefulness (or lack thereof) of the Government's cable TV station. Seriously, they spent a heap of money on a project that could have been achieved far more cheaply, and in doing so, neglected many of the potential benefits that it may at least have delivered (such as live Parliamentary discussion.

Meanwhile Government tinkers (seemingly by using a dartboard instead of common sense and logic) with how to cut public transportation service to the island's residents and visitors. The latest is some hare-brained scheme where they're going to print off a new set of tickets, passes and the likes ($$$ spent, not saved!) solely so they can double the cost for someone who wishes to take the reduced-schedule ferry Pink route.

Why, Government, why?
