Govt con­sid­er­a­tion

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS YOUR SAY -

RE­CENT news­pa­per ar­ti­cles have been sup­port­ing Uber rides as a healthy op­po­si­tion to taxis; but let’s con­sider:

Would politi­cians be happy if the cost of par­lia­ment was re­duced by con­tract­ing over­seas in­ter­est to run the par­lia­ment? How does the govern­ment help Aus­tralian busi­nesses when taxis can’t op­er­ate with­out pay­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars for a taxi li­cence, and then al­low Uber to op­er­ate with­out in­cur­ring sim­i­lar cost? Per­haps the pol­lies will re­mem­ber when the cur­rent class ac­tion by taxi op­er­a­tors goes to court. Un­for­tu­nately the pay­out will come from tax­pay­ers’, not pol­lies’, purses. — Jay Nauss
