Anyone got access to a camera?

johnboy 8 March 2007 14

We’d love to go vox-popping in Tuggeranong for an hour or two in the next couple of days.

“How do you feel about the Jon Stanhope saying Tuggeranong is a place filled with cigarette butts, dog turds and wasted lives”

That sort of thing.

If you’ve got the gear email and we’ll put a chunky credit top and tail on the video we YouTube.

UPDATED: Thanks to Trav for sending in the following:

Dog turds sold separately.

Well, it could well be coincidence Pandy, but I seem to recall a very well written spray regarding the shiteful state of the (at the time, pot-hole ridden) Adelaide Avenue – around 4 days later they had crews out there doing patch up/small reseal jobs. Like I said, it could be coincidence, but the stretch of road in question had been in a rubbish state for MONTHS.

Anyone know if RA is read by our pollies/staffers on a regular basis?

I somehow doubt Mr Stanhope would subject himself to an RA interview.

I do not think RA is his most favourite forum.

I suspect your vox-pops will have a rather predictable ring about them; therefore, why bother. Better to use the camera to doorstop the CM and give him the third degree.

In fact, if you put in a bid for a formal RA interview with the CM, I’ll find the gear for you…

Stanhopes comments are a bit rich – he lives in Belconnen for fuck sake – like that’s not worse than Tuggeranong! It’s a pretty lame insult really, given that he was trying to distract attention from his alledged extra-marital activities the night before he stood dumb and slack-jawed as he watched our city burn. Loved his follow up weepy press spot – couldn’t help thinking about the old saying – it’s not official until it’s been officially denied…

Ditto what Nyssa said. When did Stanhope last venture south of Woden anyway?

As a Tuggeranong resident and teacher of Tuggeranong residents, I resent the implication by Chief Numpty.

Perhaps he’d better do more than a 666 ABC radio stint to make it up to the Tuggeranong people.

Really? “Wasted lives” refers to one person?

At the risk of unleashing a torrent of RiotAct abuse, and with the hand on heart that I neither work for Stanhope, nor have I voted for him, I think it is a bit much to suggest that his references to dog turds etc was intended to be a slur on all Tuggers residents. I think it is pretty obvious that it was a slur on only one Tuggers resident, one B Smythe.

Pure gold…

That picture had me busting up laughing!!!! The delightful mormon folk outside must have thought I’d got to a good bit in the bible (or was reading about Joseph Smith looking into his HAT).

Ideally it’d have an external audio port and the operator would be able to give me a cd/dvd with the dv files on it within a couple of hours of completing the shoot.

This is a stupid question, but what sort of camera are you after? Did you want a professional one? or just a decent standard digi cam?

While you are at it ask the question: “So do you think Slimeball is an appropriate name for Brendan Smyth”?

Bugger Hansard still has not published the debate from Tuesday. cannot check-out what actually transpired at the Assembly that day.
