Gentlemen… Start your engines with ACTelection2012

Legislative Assembly

In addition to RiotACT’s extensive election coverage and candidate challenge I’m writing ACTelection2012; a blog covering all the sensational aspects of the upcoming splendour that is our democracy. It casts the spin aside and shoves party politics down the proverbial spiral staircase, getting right down to the important issues that you need to know before you need to figure out how to work the ballot paper. It even covers the exceptionally delightful topic of tax reform.
