And the ACT Candidates for the 2013 election are…

johnboy 17 August 2013 63

Yes that’s right folks it’s time for the sinking feeling when you realise a friend or relative is running for election in the most dire campaign in living memory.

After disgracefully doing a media flash bang without having prepped their website the Electoral Commission has finally extracted its digit and put the information online.

It’s quite the ticket for the Senate:

I note that despite losing, professional candidate Elizabeth Lee has declared herself victorious none the less, posting a message (which came to my attention via a Facebook ad tonight):

“In one of Australia’s safest Labor seats it was Mission Impossible but we were able to achieve a swing to us”

Perhaps she overlooked the part where she suffered a -0.97% swing against her on primary votes. In a change election cycle where her side would expect to capitalise, and where her colleague down south managed a +0.66 swing to him, I’d be coming to the realisation that you’re done. That two campaigns based solely on a name and an ego and on saying nothing about those you seek to represent are enough.

I’ve heard the animal justice party is preferencing the libs, so with the donkey vote locked up Zed has successfully won the second senate spot in Canberra”

They most certainly are NOT preferencing the Liberals. The Liberal party position on Live Export alone sees that not happening. The Liberal Party position is to apologise to Indonesia for suspending the trade when their appalling cruelty was publicised via Four Corners, and increasing exports, and reducing the current useless “safeguards”.

So, where did you “hear” the Animal Justice Party was preferencing the Liberals, exactly?

The AEC website has all the Group Voting Tickets that clearly show AJP preferenceing the Libs above Greens. Also a story in todays paper.

Senate, actually, but yeah same idea I suppose. Not exactly playing with a strong hand though… standing up for 400 or so people of JB versus the 350,000 of Canberra is quite a creative way to waste your time and effort.

Oh yes, wrong part of the table. Cheers.

the number one priority with a Liberal government coming in after Sept 7 is for Zed to win the second Senate seat so we have a voice in that government.

It will only be a Liberal senate if you do vote for Zed. So you can avoid a Liberal senate by not voting for Zed. You can make life more interesting for everyone by voting Greens, since both major parties have promised to never ever do a deals with independents or minor parties. Noone wants a repeat of the last couple of years of the most effective Government ever. Hell, if you keep passing legislation through you won’t have time to grandstand and pontificate about how slack the other half of the house is.

Now watch as both sides claim that their policies on immigration have “stopped the boats” when it’s actually Indonesia’s removal of automatic visas for Iranians (amongst others) that is going to stop the boats.

At least we’ll be saved the ignominy of another female prime minister for a while.

So the yardstick for calling the tragedy of the past three years “the most effective government ever” is that it has passed a record amount of legislation. More laws strangling business with red and green tape, more government interfering in our lives, less personal freedom. If that’s your idea of “effective government” then all I can say is bring on Sept 7 and the change it will usher in.

The real story will be when the coalition wins government, just how long they’ll keep blaming labor for things that go wrong. Lets face it, the global situation is not that great right now. The coalition and labor are going to have to make some big cuts and neither are really detailing those. My concern is the company tax cut and the excessive maternity leave policy. Then they’ll get rid of two taxes Carbon/Mining. For a party who prides itself on good economic policies, they are great at reducing the income to government as well for the sake of winning power.

And if the boats don’t stop? because honestly, nothing either party is suggesting will really stop desperate people living war torn/radical/politically unstable countries from having hope of living a better life.

I actually hope we get a different senator than just the standard labor/liberal pair, because then the senator will have some power as well. Voting a liberal/labor senator to have a voice means nothing, they vote on the party lines. Its rare for the senate to be a majority, so having a senator with a share of the balance of power is really what the ACT needs. Zed’s not exactly shown he is loyal to anyone. He is going last on my ballot. Haven’t decided on the other parties yet, but anything but status quo in the senate will be a good thing. Besides I also prefer Senator Humphries over Zed.

Jacking up the population and not providing commensurate investment in services and infrastructure might be a good way to generate tax revenue, but it’s also a good way to see our quality of life decline.

Of course, its also a good way to see the quality of life for those people who arrive in Australia INcrease.

At its core, sustainable population via lower immigration is a selfish notion.

Lower birth rates is not, so go for that as much as you want (well, its selfish in that at some stage the consequences become serious)

Increasing the population ad infinitum doesn’t make us more productive or wealthier like both major parties seem to think it does, it merely increases total consumption and output.

Incorrect. As the population increases we end up reducing output because there is less space left for farming on our most productive farmland. The cities spread out, the farms recede, production of food and textiles goes down.

But at least we get more schmucks to tax in order to support the nonsense that is compulsory superannuation.

In an extreme overpopulation scenario maybe, but generally speaking, if as a society we produce stuff using land, labour and capital, and you just keep adding more labour, then ceteris paribus you produce more stuff (in aggregate at least, and up to a point).

Depends on what you define “output” as. It is probably more than just stuff grown or dug up. Compulsory Super is supposed to replace the aged pension, but will probably take a few generations to do that. Not sure what you think the downside of it is, apart from increased costs to employers, which is a cost they pass on to everyone else.. So in the end society pays, not the employer.
