It’s been bugging me that you can’t just go somewhere and read all the different parties’ policies.
So here’s a list of all the parties listed by the AEC, and all the websites I can find for them. If I’ve missed any, or you can fill in any blanks, please let me know.
And yes, I am feeling a trifle obsessive-compulsive today…
