This was the Twitter photo attachment today by Treasurer Tim for his "Strong Choices" forum in Townsville. Empty seats apparent. I registered online for the Cairns forum where I was advised there would be subsequent notification by email. Nothing.
Until subsequently an email the day before to which I didn't click respond so didn't link to the 'ticket'. Oh well, nothing missed.

Update: Guardian Australia has jumped on the bandwagon with an interactive feature to enable you to fix the national "budget emergency".
