Koskyism number one was when the new public transport minsiter expressed a view that Melbournians were too obsessed with punctuality of our public transport.
Today I heard Koskyism number two. The problems are our fault again, because we all want to travel on public transport at the same time, that is in the morning and evening peak periods.
Minister, believe me, if people had an option of not getting on jam packed trains or trams or sometimes not even being able to fit on, I think they would use it. Already the peak travel times for public and motor car transport has spread in both directions at both ends of the day. What more do you want?
Her solution? She is going to talk to schools to see if they can stagger their start times more. Hip bloody horay. I wonder if she has some bribe money in her purse for all the elite private schools.
It is quickly becoming clear to me that the new minister blames the public for the poor perfomance of our public transport. I don't think I have ever taken such a dislike to someone when I have heard so little from them.
