ACT Young Liberals AGM results are in

By starbased 7 September 2011 23

Last week, the ACT Young Liberals held their AGM. The evening was full of the standard fare, arguing, attacks etc but was a good controversial evening. It showed that there was indeed fire in the belly of the ACT Young Libs.

The left swept to power, with generally 5-7 more votes than the right wing faction on each ballot. Personally, I believe the left did a fairly poor job in explaining their roles, running fresh new candidates. The attendees were pre-shored up by the leaders of the left and right (right being Henry Pike) apart from a few of us who swung on the evening based on the merits.

Duncan MacDonald (hardcore left wing leader)

Vice President
George Ober (left wing)

Taras Kontek (left wing, new)

Candice Burch (left wing)

Development Officer
Matthew Taylor (left wing, new)

Social Officer
James Baillie (left wing, new, looks 12 years old)

General Representative
Louise English (left wing)
Mitch Hatherly (unknown)

Federal Delegate
Lauren Callahan (left wing)
Jimmy Kiploks (right wing, old guard)

How left can a Young Liberal be? The world is only moderately flat?

They’d like to keep women in the 60’s not 50’s.

but only 1960-63 thank you very much.

Left wing? Young Liberals?

Starbased clearly is.

Most youngsters are left, and many gradually make their way right as they grow in worldly capacity. Actually working for things make you appreciate them, and makes you less tolerant of the lazy.

It’s an old saying

“If you’re not a socialist when you are twenty…you have no heart. If you’re still a socialist when you are thirty…you have no brain.”
