The Bullet Train for Canberra Party are welcome bright spot in an increasingly turgid campaign and have sent out a release to introduce themselves:
The Bullet Train For Canberra party will field 6 candidates in the upcoming election, with two in each electorate. Our candidates are all new to politics – we readily admit that we have less political experience than Mal Meninga, but we all have a strong desire to see a Bullet Train for Canberra.
After hearing politicians talk about it for over 30 years, and seeing more reports and studies than a University recycling bin, we really had no other choice. So we all chose to make a stand to get a Bullet Train For Canberra, and to see the massive benefits it will bring to the region.
