Bold, bad tempered Stanhopian prediction of permanent Labor Government in the ACT

By johnboy 10 July 2009 25

The Chiefly Stanhope was on 666 this morning placating the nutters and wierdos who call in.

When an SMS was put to him asking about the Redpath affair he got a little bit weird making strange accusations about the grubby little party hacks who try and pollute public forums with their lines (you know who you are).

Eventually though he was willing to offer a judgment on Katy Gallagher’s leadership ambitions:

    Samantha Maiden: And what about Katy Gallagher, leadership material?

    Jon Stanhope: Absolutely, Katy Gallagher I have absolutely no doubt will be the Chief Minister of the ACT one day and I would imagine she would be Chief Minister for three or four terms.

So, if Mr Stanhope goes to the 2012 poll and then hands over he’s anticipating un-interrupted one party rule through to 2028?

There I was thinking we had people called voters who had some say in the matter but that’s obviously naive.

I don’t imagine Andrew Barr will be well pleased either to wait two more decades before getting a go in the big seat.

For those who want to listen we’ve posted a recording of the exchange.

Canberra is a diehard Labor town and I tend to agree with Stanhope – can’t ever see the Libs getting a go.

From the sounds of things I’m the only one in this whole city that thinks it’s being run pretty well…

You don’t get out much do you?

Oh, and to Katy’s leadership ambitions. My advice would be; put in a honest day’s work, at least two or three times a year.

Bring back Andrew Whitecross.

Comrade in command of the ACSS (Australian Capital Socialist State)

hes obviously got his 5 year old nephew a job doing some road infrastructure, i mean how else could you get such an efficient logical GDE and Glenlock Interchange! impressive for a 5 year old. ACTION Busses.. health system.. stupid, outdated, messy, contradicting, unbalanced and vague legal acts –

But on the brighter side, attracting business growth in civic, its not perfect but its getting there, and… uhm.. saving that drowning guy in the dam… uhm black mountain tower lit up at night now! wow…… uhm………. and that artistic dual phalic spinning thing on yarra glen! who wouldnt vote for him!!
