‘Moving Victoria’ and changing billboards

Back at the end of 2013 I found this billboard beside the Deer Park Bypass at Caroline Springs, featuring yet another advertisement for the Liberal Government’s ‘Moving Victoria’ program.

Fast forward six months, and look at how the government’s priorities appear to have changed – the advertisement for Regional Rail Link has been replaced by one for the East West Link .

    Remember that it is your money ( the taxpayers ) that is being spent on this advertising, at probably very expensive rates, but a lot of that money comes straight back into the Party’s bank account. It is a great way of transfering cash from the government to the party.
