We’ve long suspected that part of the Zeddites’ cunning plans have been to *not* turn up to meetings where Pogos might get themselves some preselection rights on the basis that if there isn’t a quorum the meeting doesn’t count.
(Here in the bunker we are sticklers for Robert’s Rules of Order and consider anyone taken in by such a simple ruse to deserve what they get)
The Pogos, had they not been so pathetically complacent, should have seen this one coming months ago and mobilised long before nominations closed.
But as the jostling for a possible second bite at the cherry by the Pogos goes on we hear from a source that a Grand Old Lady of the Party has fallen casualty:
Zed’s Young Libs try last minute tactic to reduce voting rights.
The ACT Young Libs tonight abandoned (at the command of ????) their own meeting declaring it inquorate to outmanoeuvre members from the senior party to gain voting rights.
Sadly this brought about a casualty in Margaret Reid who was left outside the cancelled meeting after young Libs sent out the word by phone to pull out.
A sad day indeed. Zed’s dirty tricks campaign continues, one can only hope it is only a matter of time until he trips himself up.
When the first woman to be president of the Australian Senate is left out in the cold and the wet that’s one hell of a game of hardball.
