The ABC is reporting that the grumpiest of the ACT’s grumpy old men (and a man with much to be grumpy about), Tharwa’s Val Jeffery, is running for the ACT Legislative Assembly on the Community Alliance Party ticket.
- Mr Jeffery says it is time to end majority government in Canberra.
“The time is ripe, they’re sick of the Stanhope Government, they’re sick of the arrogance of majority Government,” he said.
“They’re looking for an alternative to get in there and, for want of a better word, keep the bastards honest.”
Personally I have no doubt that if Val had been Chief Minister in 2003
less fewer people would have been injured or died, and there’d be much less cheap real-estate in Weston Creek.
The weight of that is over to you.
