Hanson hits back at light rail spinners

Share Canberra's trusted news:

Jeremy Hanson

HERE in the “CityNews” newsroom we’ve long made merry with the inane tweeting of the Capital Metro spin doctors trying to convince their paltry 670 followers that the tram will cure cancer, mow our lawns, and deliver gender appropriate persons of mutual sexual attraction to our doorsteps.

So we viewed with some interest the Liberal leader Jeremy Hanson getting stuck into them on Twitter yesterday.

We look forward to more robust debate.

  1. I heard three ads during Mark Parton’s breakfast show on 2CC this morning spruiking light rail carrying authorisation by the ACT government so we are now paying for all this spin.
