The Greens have criticized the Victorian Labor government’s decision to partially privatize VicRoads, saying it will put the interests of private profit above the common good.
The Victorian Greens traffic spokesman Sam Hibbins said « It is clear that this government is dependent on privatization and that it must stop before any public good is sold for a quick buck.
» Today’s announcement by VicRoads is another privatization by the Victorian Labor government , where the interests of private gain are put above the common good.
« Neoliberalism is alive and well in Victoria State, and the Victorian Labor government is addicted to privatization.
» It’s time that we have a debate on the economic ideology of our state before any public good that makes money is sold by this government. «
