infrastructure investments in Victoria. I can say that Labor's ridiculous opposition to the asset recycling bill will stop a very important public transport project going ahead in Victoria which the federal government supports. The Melbourne Rail Link will be stopped if the Labor Party continues with its ridiculous opposition to the Asset Recycling Initiative.

Last week Labor's spokesman talked about what Labor would do if they were re-elected at the next election. He said that he would put more money back into public transport, which is interesting, because he does that by cutting projects—this is without the Asset Recycling Initiative—raising taxes or he does what Labor always does and borrows more.
