Chief Minister points out Gazza has a vote on IR

By johnboy - 28 November 2005 8

Comrade Stanhope has put out a media release reminding the people of Canberra that we do have a Liberal Senator who is about to vote for the Industrial Relations Laws which so many of you would seem to be against.

How many of you will be holding this against Gazza when the next election rolls around?

UPDATED: Today’s Crikey had the following interesting snippet:

15. Christian Kerr’s political snippets

Another IR wobbler?: The union movement is urging the comrades to ring Government senators’ offices to ask them to cross the floor on the Workplace Relations Amendments – and Crikey understands ACT Liberal Gary Humphries’ electorate office staff have been refusing to state which way he will vote. Another Barnaby or a Senator who simply can’t remember which side of the Chamber he sits on?

What’s Your opinion?

Humph was orating in Senate last night saying he was in favour of the IR reforms but he also presented a 10000 word petition to the House against the reforms.

Oddly enough Lundy was on afterwards demanding commpensation for some family who used to scavenge discarded shells from some firing range. One shell was still live so a family member hit it with a nammer, it blew up killing him and a injuring some others and now they want comensation. Anyone know of any links to this story – no more details sorry – it was late and I was tired.

Is SGS allowed to vote ?

Seriously, he doesn’t look that old in the photo’s of himself he has uploaded to the net.

We also have a Labor Senator who is going to vote against it.

Whilst effectively cancelling out the relevance of any kind of debate in the ACT, it is nice to know we Canberrans have proportional representation across the Left-Right divide…

Yeah, but were you even not going to vote liberal SGS? Unless call to australia or the fred nile party were running I guess.

It appears Senator H didn’t maintain too much control over the Committee he chaired on Welfare to Work either.

Gazza is a classic yes man.

He lost my vote a long time ago with his arrogant displays of cronyism.

Well I will probably hold it in Gazza’s favour.
