The Victorian taxpayer will compensate the losing bidder for Australia's biggest desalination plant - by up to 10 million dollars.What the cunting fuck? I have more to say about the Wonthaggi desalination plant but for fuck's sake, surely both bidders knew that only one of them would win. What in fuck's name is the fucking state government doing giving the losing bidder taxpayers' money? If this was a contract between private firms does anyone think that losing bidders would get some dosh out of it? Why the fuck are governments everywhere so fucking eager to spunk away the money they fucking rob off the rest of us?
AquaSure has been awarded the three and a half billion dollar contract to build the plant, with the state government underwriting finance for the project.
Bass Water would also get some return for it's failed bid.
