Churchill to Seselja: Dems say “Better Late than Never” to Libs on Light Rail.

The ACT Democrats have welcomed the Opposition Leader’s announcement of a feasibility study into Light Rail. “It’s about time!” declared Democrats candidate for Ginninderra, Darren Churchill. “Definitely better late than never!”

Canberra news services reported tonight that the Opposition has announced it will spend $8 million dollars to investigate options for Light Rail.

“The Democrats will be holding Mr Seselja to his words.” Mr Churchill said. “This is something the Democrats have been advocating for over seven years. We took a proposal for Light Rail to the election back in 2001. It’s been democrats policy for years!”

“Now that both of the big parties have given agreement to the idea, let’s see if we can get some action” said Mr Churchill. “Labor need to agree to lock in their commitment and to guarantee they won’t shelve it with dirty tricks and rezoning like the did previously with the dragway. And now that the Liberals have announced they are serious, we need to make sure they are true to their word too.”

“It’s great that they have adopted Democrats policy and seen sense on this important issue! But the Democrats are not prepared to be simply a policy “think tank’ for the old parties. We need to make sure they follow up their words with actions.

Mr Churchill announced the Democrats Light Rail Policy two weeks ago at the ACT Light Rail candidates forum. The policy is on the Democrats website at http://www.act.democrats.org.au.

“If elected, Greg Tannahill (Molonglo), and I, Darren Churchill (Ginninderra) will make sure that whoever forms the next government that they honour these and other promises. We will keep the bastards honest!” Mr Churchill concluded emphatically.
