In a story covered on ABC online Qantas head honcho Alan Joyce has not only dismissed Canberra as a viable second airport for sydeny in the short term, but also put the sword to any notion of a fast rail link between Sydney an Canberra on.
Tim Bohm, Party President of the Bullet Train for Canberra Party and candidate for Molonglo said:
“Alan Joyce is only worried concerned about Alan Joyce, we take pride and are extremely happy to be dismissed by Alan Joyce. While Alan is stuck in the horse and buggy era countries like Sweden have recently showed that even with a smaller population they can make it happen – they are building a Bullet Train from Stockholm (pop 864000) to Linkoping (pop 104000) over a distance of 200km, and are spending around $13 billion. We can make it happen here by spending less to go further and transport more people.”
“This backward thinking is why the Bullet Train for Canberra Party exists.”
