First federal campaign poster

Kerces 5 December 2006 33

Walking down Northbourne today I discovered the local Liberals are making a particularly early start on their campaign for the (as yet unannounced) federal election next year.

Troy Williams, candidate for Fraser so up against Bob McMullan, has planted his poster in the front garden between one of the new blocks of flats springing up and an office building. I vaguely wondered if that was either his home or work, or just seemed like a good place. Any other sightings?

I remember seeing Richard Mulchay and Andrew Barr posters all over the place during the last election as well, so I think it’s more a famewhore thing than a Greens thing…

The Greens are the worst at planting their election shit all over the place at election time. There were posters of that cow Tucker planted every where last election!

The url fails anyway

At the suggestions of those posting messages an urban terrorist has changed the poster – Complete with pirate hat.

Sorry for the link, posting stuff here (ie the pic) isn’t my specialty.

All is well then, I’ll cancel that call the Mark Day.

JB, Crikey did credit RiotACT – they simply put a link to this site.

I’m going with the tree as well.

It would be great if he could do an interview though, but what kind of questions do you ask a tree ?

Actually, if it weren’t for this post I woulodn’t even know who the hell Troy Williams was.

Therefore it has to be good publicity, not that I’ll vote for him.

Maybe we should have an RA interview with Mr Williams?

Someone should go and write, ‘As seen on RiotACT’ above it….

Dwindling? Source?

Did any of their dwindling band of subscribers note if they credited us for the picture they’ve stolen without permission?

You are talking about the small green tree right?

Gee you lot are cruel. His mother thinks he’s wonderful, and is so proud she has taken a similar picture to post to the rellies in Tasmania.

I’m pissing myself. This poster is next to where i live. It now has the words “As seen on Crikey” pasted above it. Somebody is quick!

So the poll is:

50% Small green tree
25% Pirate ‘Koch’ Williams Poster
25% Undecided
0% Bob McMullan

I’ll vote for the small tree as well.

It probably has green credentials…

Are we able to vote for the small tree just behind the poster?

CanberraGreen CanberraGreen 4:00 pm 06 Dec 06

I checked, no trees were hurt during the installation of this poster, although a chunk of wood looks to have been severly bashed.

If it’s a choice between McMullan and somebody else, I’ll take the poster of this Accountant Pirate that is Troy Williams (decision on the man himself is reserved).

can we elect just the poster ??

Maybe he will get the green vote:

Yes, a poster of anyone would be more productive than Bob McMullan, so we should go with the Koch look alike.

Being a Liberal, was he ever going to get the Green preferences? Really?
