And the Leader of the Canberra Liberals is… Jeremy Hanson

By johnboy - 11 February 2013 38

Zed Seselja’s media advisor Emily Davis has announced there will be a press conference at 2pm.

(Yes exactly who is making the call is possibly significant)

Keep your eyes posted.


UPDATE: Jeremy Hanson is the leader, Alistair Coe as deputy.


It does make one wonder what Senator Humphries was playing at when he convinced the Canberra Times Alistair Coe was a shoe in.

Trying to throw Jezza under a bus to bolster a sense of panic in the party?

What’s Your opinion?

Canberra Times has been backtracking even before the announcement. First headline declared Coe would be leader, then it was changed to may be the new leader because of a deal.

Should really stop making prediction on local politics, they can’t blame hare-clarke this time. Hanson was always the favourite.

CT cannot be trusted on anything report in relation to the Canberra Liberal’s. They are sooo dependant upon the advertising dollar of the pokies funded Labor party. Lets not forget their front pages campaign in the days before the election last year that Zed’s support was only 26% compared to Katy’s at 58%. Zed ended up with a higher vote than Katy!! Their coverage of local politics is totally and utterly biased and not worthy of the name journalism.

A good outcome. Jeremy Hanson is the only sensible choice.

LOL at the Canberra Times.

How bad are they at predicting political matters?

The Liberals are real contenders in 2016 now. Jeremy’s balanced views, great work ethic and ability to talk like a normal human being will put us in good stead.

If you’d met Jeremy in person, you’d know that I’m telling the whole truth. A Labor mate of mine SMS’d to say that they were in real trouble with Jeremy at the helm of the Libs.

A good start. Now they just need to find someone who can make the people of Tuggeranong forget about the previous bloke…

Intelligent and Articulate!!! Is this a joke? He’s trashed the health system, trashed the nurses and doctors who work in the health system and told Meredith Hunter her policies were up her arse, amongst other things. I look forward to him being a bit more of a doer rather than a knocker. I also look forward to a little more policy detail instead of sniping from the sidelines.

Maybe the CT was reporting Coe as the likely winner because that was the noise coming from the Liberals themselves, in particular a one Mr Humphries.

Anyway cannot believe I am going to say this but certainly a good choice. Coe is a complete and utter tool in the same way as Zed.

Now this whole thing got me thinking, I reckon Zed’s chances of knocking over Humpries is probably low, so I wonder if this whole thing is just a charade to get a new leader without it looking like there is strife amongst those in the assembly.

There a definitely worse liberals than Hanson that’s for sure. 4 years of Coe would have left the Liberals on life-support come the next election.

I do wonder how the caucus vote went though; assuming Jones, Zed and Dunne voted for Coe – I only list those because they’re each as bat-sh%t and useless as each other.

I for one am relieved the Territory avoided the self-inflated-arrogance and populist crap of Coe.

Overjoyed that the Libs have realised the damaging waste of space that is Smyth. His grovelling to the Blumers and their legal mates to ensure the ACT has the highest TPI in Australia must surely have raised serious alarm bells regarding his suitability as a representative for his wider constituancy.

I was astounded that he even got back in.

Having totally cocked up this morning the CT’s Lisa Cox is now passing on Katy Gallagher’s riding orders to the new leader.
