And the Leader of the Canberra Liberals is… Jeremy Hanson

By johnboy 11 February 2013 38

Zed Seselja’s media advisor Emily Davis has announced there will be a press conference at 2pm.

(Yes exactly who is making the call is possibly significant)

Keep your eyes posted.


UPDATE: Jeremy Hanson is the leader, Alistair Coe as deputy.


It does make one wonder what Senator Humphries was playing at when he convinced the Canberra Times Alistair Coe was a shoe in.

Trying to throw Jezza under a bus to bolster a sense of panic in the party?

What’s Your opinion?

Whether it is mad-made or natural or a combination of both is up for conjecture and whether or not we can actually do anything about it is also a point of contention.

Your belief in some sort of “conjecture” are not backed by fact but obviously derive from a bullshit-detector failure when reading nonsense propagated by lobbyists and cranks.

So ALL climate change is man-made?

Just in case you’ve been “reading widely” like Hanson has obviously been doing, here is where you can go to get back on solid ground:

http://www.csiro.au/resources/Climate-is-changing

and

http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/change/

In other words, ignore the cranks and lobbyists and stick with the facts.

These sources don’t refer to climate change as being only ‘man-made climate change’, as you alluded to in your previous post.

The reality is that the climate is indeed changing, and some of this is ‘man-made’. Certainly not all.

Yawn again. Yep, read them. So you can post links, hijack threads, and generally throw around abuse.

Welll done son, you must feel proud of yourself..

Let me remind you.

It was a thread about Hanson taking the lib leadership, not climate change. You hijacked it with your comment.

And I note that you didn’t comment on the rest of my post, you know, this bit.

Climate change is real and is happening and Having said that, there is no doubt that we need to reduce pollution as well as our reliance on fossil fuels

Come back when you’ve completed high school level comprehension.

No, only the climate change caused by man is man-made.

Duh.

JH was a grunt in a past life, and from what I can gather via Google he was a pretty good one. I’d vote for him on that basis alone (and I’ve voted Labor all my life), whereas I wouldn’t vote for a slack and idle tool like Zed in a million years.

If Hanson is as organised and together as most of the professional soldiers I’ve known, and if he can stay out of the clutches of the religious loonies who appear to dominate much of the Liberal party, the next ACT government will be Liberal. The poor sad Labor mob won’t know what hit them.

Zed is a complete tool.

I’ve met and talked to Hanson. Seems a reasonable bloke and yes, he, like me, was once a grunter…

Got to give the guy credit for that.

Sadly, you also have in common with Hanson your backward beliefs on climate change.

I’m not actually sure his views on climate change are? However, if they are the same as mine then he must realise that climate change is real and is happening. Whether it is mad-made or natural or a combination of both is up for conjecture and whether or not we can actually do anything about it is also a point of contention.

Having said that, there is no doubt that we need to reduce pollution as well as our reliance on fossil fuels.

Apart from that, your point is?

In fact, in an interview in the Chronicle last year, both JH and SD stated that yes, climate change is real and needs real action.

That’s the opposite of what they were saying on Tuesday morning to Ross Solly.

From memory, Hanson’s train of nonsense went something like,
– there’s a range of ideas
– Scientists aren’t agreed
– I read very widely on this
– nothing we do would make any difference anyway

Which pretty much demonstrates he isn’t up to the task of developing evidence-based policy.

Intelligent and Articulate!!! Is this a joke? He’s trashed the health system, trashed the nurses and doctors who work in the health system and told Meredith Hunter her policies were up her arse, amongst other things. I look forward to him being a bit more of a doer rather than a knocker. I also look forward to a little more policy detail instead of sniping from the sidelines.

The comment re Meredith Hunter sounds pretty intelligent and articulate to me: accurate and succinct, no weasel words or management speak.

This reply says it all about the type of person who supports Jeremy Hanson.

Your reply tells us that you are a complete and utter tool.

But that’s okay, because everyone already knew that.

Even those who vote ALP or Greens.
