Election promises watch

By Thumper - 10 July 2008 42

As we are entering the silly season for the upcoming Territory election I felt that it may be handy to have an online election promise list/ watch. (Like fuelwatch but probably more helpful)

To start;

Free buses
Light rail proposal

Excluding stamp duty from new house buyers




Please fill in as you see necessary. Please note, this thread is not for slagging off policies and promises, it is simply for listing them. If you want to slag off a political party then do it on your own thread.

Thank you. Let the games begin.

What’s Your opinion?

Bona fide,

Stanhope: It glides as softly as a cloud.

Stanhope: No, good sir, I’m on the level.
Deadmandrinking: The ring came off my pudding can.
Stanhope: Take my pen knife, my good man.
I swear it’s Springfield’s only choice…
Throw up your hands and raise your voice!
All: Monorail! Stanhope: What’s it called?
All: Monorail!
Stanhope: Once again…
All: Monorail!
Foskey: But Main Street’s still all cracked and broken…

[big finish]
Headbonius: Mono… D’oh!

Spectra said :

The ALP have never promised free bus travel. Our beloved leader simply mentioned that it might be something they’d consider in the name of increasing patronage. Not a promise by any measure.

Taking a leaf from Rudd’s book then. Eg starting a ‘conversatoin’ on the republic without giving a position or promise of action.

Also, Mulcahy has a general promise of lower taxes/rates.

Libs will complete GDE.

Motorist Party wants their dragway.

The land rent and solar power feed thingy have already been through the assembly – they ain’t promises for the coming election.

PM 12:19 pm 10 Jul 08

Let’s be clear – the ALP has merely promised to write to the Rudd govt and ask for light rail funding. That is all.

(Sorry – I really like light rail and I don’t want the issue to be thought over.)

Thumper 12:09 pm 10 Jul 08

Shall we make it rumour and innuendo as well?


tom-tom 12:05 pm 10 Jul 08
