With the deadline looming for anyone hoping to be ready for the next election to get their act together I thought it would be worthwhile discussing what people are willing to vote for.
With Independents needing roughly 15% of the vote to win a seat, even if they are vehemently opposed by 75% of the population, what should independents be running on to get the numbers?
Some ideas to kick it off:
â– Public subsidy of private transport with a view to massive reduction of ACTION;
â– De-regulation of taxi’s and hire cars with private bus services allowed to operate along public routes;
â– Complete de-criminalisation of all drugs;
â– Making public housing charges a flat, uncapped 25% of tenant’s aggregate earnings (ie, five people in the house five incomes accounted for up to any amount);
â– Turning the running of schools over to P&C’s with an end to out-of-area restrictions;
â– Opening subsidised 24 hour public health clinics in all of Canberra’s town centres.
â– Giant Jim Morrison memorial statue in Weston Park
