Harper and Hanson

Opposition Leader Jeremy Hanson told the RiotACT today that he would consider appointing to his own staff administrative and communications workers left jobless by the tearing up of light rail contracts under a Liberals government.

“Yeah, look, we’ll consider that. Where that’s possible, we’ll do that,” the Canberra Liberals leader said.

“There’s no glee that we have about cancelling these contracts.”

Harper and Barr

Both Mr Hanson and ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr spoke to the RiotACT in live and exclusive pre-election interviews today, the former at his local shopping centre of Cooleman Court this evening, and the latter this morning, at Ginninderra College, where he completed his schooling in 1991.

The potential chief ministers commented on issues including integrity in government, light rail, health and residential rates.

We also asked them to each provide us with a compliment about their opponent to end the interview.

I am sure the people working in project management for the light rail project will find relief in political appointments to staff or office management under Jeremy’s office.

And there he is, lying again. Ripping up the light rail contracts will be a moment of great celebration for the Liberals and they will take every opportunity to rub it in everyone’s faces.
