The Cunning of Tom Sefton, parked on the corner of London and Northbourne

By johnboy - 17 September 2012 24

I’m coming to realise that the Liberals’ Tom Sefton is a very clever operator.

This morning I was particularly impressed by his poster-ute which is parked utterly legally on the corner of London Circuit and Northbourne Avenue.

It’s highly visible to traffic in all directions thank to some artful angling of the boards.

We look forward to seeing if fights break out over this spot or if Tom’s ute leaves before election day.

I wonder how many drivers are distracted by the sign rather than focusing on the pedestrian crossing nearby.

Nice to see them doing some legal advertising for a change.

Not many, if any?

The exact same number as should have their licenses revoked for being incompetent and dangerous drivers.

I guess the three university degrees he has, plus the skills learned serving as a commando in Afganistan have made him a smart operator.

I think he is doubly smart as not only did he get all the passing traffic to see his sign today, but he also got posted on the most visited most reliable Canberra blog/website.

I also wonder how many drivers get detracted by street signs which are much smaller and harder to read. Mooo_cow is there anything you wouldn’t complain about you banana

The same truck was at the Canberra Farmers Markets on Saturday, very smart advertising

Ooh, I saw that guys photo on the back of a ute so I’ll vote for him.

Once upon a time I thought mandatory voting was a good thing.

I saw the ute parked in a Floriade carpark on Sunday. Whoever is in charge of moving it is very savvy. Well done team Tom. Too bad you’re a Lib.

His use of that ute over the past monh or too means I know his name and face better than the leader of his own party.

Genuine question – would that on its own be enough to make you vote for him?

And another genuine question -if you were likely to vote Liberal anyway and it’s true you know his face and name better than the leader (or anyone else in that same party), would that influence your voting order? In what way and why?

I vote on both sides of the political divide, so for me I vote for people who work hard and smart during a campaign, as I hope they will prove to be hard working smart MLAs. So people I see a lot of during a campaign:
Tom Sefton libs
Angie Drake ALP
Shane Rattenbury greens

Will get my vote, I saw a lot of Kula early in the campaign but he seems to have vanished, or he is campaigning in areas I don’t visit.

So yes visibility helps decide my vote, I also look people ip when I know their name and party and find out a little more about them.

I saw a poster for a bloke called poccock the other day I looked him up and found I don’t really have a lot in common with his policy.

I think the two major parties are very similar in a lot of ways do that’s why I can vote for personalities not parties.
