Playing politics

THE State Government announced a $5 billion deal (12/4) to lease Port Kembla and Port Botany to private concerns for 99 years. However, the O'Farrell Government could only find $400 million for the Pacific Highway from this windfall instead of the $2 billion they need to match the Federal Government's $3.6 billion on the table to complete the Pacific Highway by 2016. This proves that O'Farrell is playing politics with funding the Pacific Highway.
