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.

if you are serious about doing an election promise watch you may be interested in this article on Wired:

The software claims the following:

“Comprehensive competitive intelligence

Versionista was designed by PhDs for the rough-and-tumble world of today’s Web.

– Every site edit, version, and deletion is “set in stone” by Versionista on an hour-by-hour basis.
– Precise historical knowledge of a Web site’s edits, including “scrubbing” of potentially compromising information, is a competitive advantage to journalists, political campaigns, corporations, and activists.
– Versionista gives a “big picture” overview of the evolution of a site, particularly one that has multiple editors, contributors, and bloggers.

How it works

A side-by-side comparison (as well as multiple other views) lets you see “before and after” versions of every monitored page. We highlight what text has been added, deleted, or moved. Versionista will keep 8+ versions of each page. You can “rollback” in time to see older versions.”

Speaking of plannong, has anyone seen that reidiculouys roundabout they are putting in the middle of macgregor?

It just about hits one of the houses.

unbelievable to think that they (the government) believes that this will not all in end in tears. I estimate it will take less than six months before a drunken driven misses the roundabout and slams into a house.

Don’t believe me, go and check it out 😉

And while I’m at it, has anyone seen the bike lane sign stuck fair smack in the middle of lane ( I shit you not…) at the intersection of Tilyard drive and Ginninderra? I reckon that will get slammed into soon as well.

or the cyclist….

what ever happened to the bike paths? beats the hell out of riding on the road around charnwood / florey / etc areas. I could get to holt oval much faster via the paths when i was a kid.
