Three more years of slumber from Zed? [Announcement now coming Monday]

By 23 November 2012 16

People have been starting to wonder when we’d hear from the Liberals about their shadow ministry.

The Government is well and truly back into governing. Where is the opposition paid to scrutinise them?

A request to Zed’s office for news on their timetable for this important annoucement garnered this response:

Nothing decided yet, will let you know when it has been.

The wait goes on.

UPDATE 23/11/12 11:25: Zed’s office now informs us there will be an announcement on Monday.

Isn’t it time that we put Zed to bed, and got ourselves somebody better instead?

But I think I saw a story on WIN News last night (Thurs) about the Libs shadow ministry with on-screen graphics listing shadow ministers and their portfolios.

I guess even Zed’s office aren’t watching WIN’s infotainmentorial any more

Oh jeez, they’re really making it look like we got the best of the lot in Govt.
Can’t help but feel there’d still be no one at the wheel by now even if they’d got in.

RA: “So when are you announcing your shadow cabinet? It’s been weeks…”
Libstaffer: “Yawn…what?”
RA: “Your shadow cabinet?”
Libstaffer: “Oh crap – forgot about that…”
Libstaffer: “Ummm…did I just say that out loud?”
RA: “Yup.”
Libstaffer: “Crap. Crap squared.” [Slams phone down. Types email: "Nothing decided yet, will let you know when it has been."]

Libstaffer: “The shadow cabinet!”
Zed: “The what?”
Libstaffer: “The shadow cabinet! And…you know…the whole Assembly thing…”
Zed: “Crap. How’d we forget about that? Actually, how’d YOU forget about that??”
Libstaffer: “You’re the frakkin leader!”
Zed: “Oh yeah. Umm…tell them we’re almost done and we’ll be making a big shiny announcement on Monday. That’ll make it look like we’ve been working right through weekends on this most critical of decisions for the alternative ACT government.”
Libstaffer: “But I already emailed them saying we’d get back to them…”
Zed: “Frak. Frakfrakfrakfrak… Tell them that anyway. Maybe they won’t notice.”

Libstaffer: “Done. They noticed.”
Zed: “Frak.”
Zed: “What’s the date?”

Now that you didn’t get elected, seems you have a little too much time on your hands. :)

HAHAHAHA .. HAHAHA omg.

Zed is the ‘best’ they have. Although Vicki being Speaker means she won’t have her mug in the paper as much ..

Does it really matter? The success of the Labor/Green cabal will be measured by how much disposable income the average ACT ratepayer has left in 4 years time.

thank goodness they didn’t get the top job otherwise we would have been waiting so much longer to find out who the ministers are – Katy took days, Zed is taking weeks!
