I just noticed on the ABC that down in Tasmania there is a spending limit of $12,000 on campaign expenses.
I was just wondering what people thought of this.
I think it’s a good idea to give candidates fairly equal coverage and ensure that someone doesn’t get in purely because they’ve spent a fortune on advertising.
Would something like this work here in Canberra, do you think?
