There is to be no discussion of the election, the Liberal party or boat people in this thread - and if you break the rule I'll come over to your house and pour curry powder on your 'special towel'. The question is simple: How do you think the Australian Labour party's policies of tendencies will shape 2-wheeled transport? Make it specific to your state or city if you like. Personally [I'm in Sydney]: I think a little bit of increased industrial action by bus/train driver unions can be expected (they'll at least try it on, I reckon) - resulting in services outages and an increase in motorcycle and scooter sales as people get fed up with an already crappy system. Increased sales volume usually means a drop in price for bikes [yay!] Increased newbie idiots means more bike accidents and possible hike in CTP greenslips [even though it's NOT justified! damn MRAA poofters] and insurance premiums [not so yay!]. Whatcha reckon?
