Zed Seselja wonders why Labor won’t give Lanyon Valley a pool

By Barcham - 27 February 2013 24

After Zed’s victorious campaign against the Pogos over the weekend he has now turned his mighty gaze onto the residents of Lanyon Valley and is wondering why Labor hasn’t given them a pool yet.

In the Assembly today, Mr Seselja will call on the ACT Labor Government to outline when they will develop more community facilities for the Lanyon Valley residents.

“For too long the people of the Lanyon Valley have not had reasonable access to important community facilities like a pool, community meeting areas, a public library or recreational facilities,” said Mr Seselja.

At the 2012 election, following an extensive period of community engagement and feedback, the Canberra Liberals promised to build an indoor pool in Lanyon Valley.

The Government has been asking for Zed to step down from his committee roles after he defeated Senator Gary Humphries in the Canberra Liberals preselection contest. In a move that surprises exactly nobody, Zed seems to have decided not to listen to the Government and instead is doing whatever he wants.

Also why should he listen to them? They won’t even give Lanyon Valley a pool!

What’s Your opinion?

Obviously driving 5 minutes to tuggeranong or erindale pool is too much for Lanyonites? Or does Zed want to keep them in the lanyon valley as much as possible so they don’t leave?

“Insert joke about repetitive use of spelling ‘Laynon’ here”

But seriously tho, perhaps Zed wants to donate his pay to the cause? Perhaps then the taxpayers may feel like we’re getting something out of it.

And I’m wondering why Zed won’t give the people of Lanyon four years of representation in the Legislative Assembly…

Terrible campaigning from Zed. If he’s going to win that Senate seat, he has to reference the incompetence of the Gillard Government in every local issue he gets involved in.

For example: “The people of Lanyon need a pool. Much like the pool of lies and deceit the Prime Minister finds herself wallowing in on a daily basis”.

This is too rich. You’ve abandoned the electorate Zed, stop pretending to do your old job and piss off to Parliament already.

That doesn’t sound like the most appealing pool to swim in! If that’s our only option for a Lanyon pool, let’s blow the money on scratchie tickets instead.

Spot on, and way too much ammo for the Libs if it does get built, late and over-budget. “Just like the Federal Govt drowning in the depths of self-created, fiscally irresponsible economic turmoil blah blah blah…”

Has anyone from Lanyon Valley ever asked for these facilities? As Watto says the Tugg facilities are only 5 mins away – ditto for Erindale. I assumed everyone else was happy to go there like we do…..seems like “reasonable” access to me.

The folks in Lanyon are closer to Tidbinbilla and Tharwa than the rest of Canberra.

What is the current attendance at Tuggeranong Aquatic Centre? How much business will they lose if a pool/gym opens up in Lanyon?

And they are closer to the snow. I demand equal accessibility!

It was new to me and I had not heard of it until the election, nor heard anyone talk of it since. I personally don’t think we need it, we have a community nursing centre and all the major stuff is in Tuggeranong. I would rather see the money go there for upgrades than wasting time & resources on building new stuff.
