The former Transport Minister who couldn't grasp the concept that if you increase the number of passenger trains you need more people to drive them has resurfaced as the Racing Minister. Shows you what priority the Government puts on Racing. And where does he going looking when he needs another Board member for a cushy retirement package- straight to an ex pollie. Qualifications as listed by the Minister state" lives and breathes racing ". Met a couple of blokes down the Geebung RSL Today who said they had the same qualifications. Apparently they didn't get a call re the vacancy . Total joke.
