Foot in mouth

State Labor frontbencher Tim Pallas should have resisted the temptation to score a political point in commenting (3/2) on the current public transport crisis. The Bracks government may be spending "$2 billion upgrading rail infrastructure". But the reference to "decades of neglect of the previous Liberal Governments" is both illogical and unfortunate. Victoria has been governed by Labor for 14 of the past 25 years. Foot in mouth, Tim?
