Response to Scoop article on new Wellington bus contracts

Another element of this picture is the national (global) neo-liberal takeover of politics.  The philosophy of this was (is) that the money will be spent (given) on projects which filter profits up to the elite. 

To invest in “sustainable” transport options may not be as likely to be able to do this, but more to the point, would send the wrong signals to the electorate that significant change for sustainability is not only necessary but was actually beginning!    This has been greeted with relief by the electorate which has preferred denial.
