Only in Constance’s pointy little head.

It’s the standard sort of statement this clown makes, technically known as “a lie”.

It relies on not being challenged by journalists who know even less about it than he does, or having received instruction from their management to shill the lie.

In Newcastle this government takes its instructions from corrupt developer Jeff “moneybags” McCloy and the coal genius and obesity enthusiast Nathan “bankruptcy” Tinkler.

Like I said, light rail in Newcastle so far is just a bunch of graphics they keep altering to suit their latest line of misleading propaganda. Even if they have ordered the CAFs for it, they’re more likely to run on the IWLR to relieve the overcrowding that’s an issue now, and only likely to get worse as the oversized apartment developments foisted on suburbs along the line are completed and fill up.
