What Labor used to say about business cases

“These contracts are not worth the paper they are written on. It’s a project without a business case, it’s a project without a mandate.”

“There’s no business case and no justification.  Nothing to progress its design.  No process for public consultation.  No possibility of construction starting in 2016.  No firm date for completion.  This just panic, blind panic.”

“Victorians will not be fooled by another empty promise. They know the difference between a headline and a deadline. They’re smart enough to know that the devil, here, is in the lack of detail. Because a press release isn’t a major project and a dotted line on a map doesn’t get you home.”

“We can’t keep these business cases in the dark, like the previous government did.”
