Defying Empire commemorates the 50th anniversary of 1967 Referendum

Election night party – come revel in the vengeance.

By johnboy - 13 October 2008 27

Most of you, I have no doubt, have had a gutfull of electioneering.

But election night itself is a wonderful time. Once every four years we get a very limited opportunity to pass judgment over a whole raft of heros and miscreants.

This Saturday night we’ve booked a table at All Bar Nun in O’Connor and have permission to put the ABC on one of the big screens. In between the election coverage we’ll plug in a laptop and put up the Elections ACT website.

Candidates, campaign workers, other media, and regular members of the public are all welcome to come on down and have a gloat at the expense of whomever is getting their comeuppance.

We’ll be liveblogging the results from the bar, so obviously being there will give you the chance to colour our commentary.

What’s Your opinion?

This weekend I’ll be excercising my democratic right to not vote.

It’s just a jumped-up local council, and they’re all a bunch of retards.

With a reasonably well paying Commonwealth public service, all you can ever hope for with the ACT Government is a sheltered workshop of political wannabes with over-inflated egos.

Actually, I believe it was, ‘what would happen if they held a war and nobody turned up’

But point taken 😉

Granny 6:05 pm 13 Oct 08

I can! I can! Pick me!

*chuckle*

Well, 69 of them are going to lose.

You can’t enjoy that?

To paraphrase that ’60’s slogan “What if they held an Election and nobody came?” I dream of waking up on Sunday to find that ALL the candidates have lost.

Granny 5:29 pm 13 Oct 08

I will be there if I can. I can’t think of a funner bunch of people to watch the coverage with!

: )

Thumper 5:27 pm 13 Oct 08

Damn, I’m out of town otherwise I would have been there like a shot!

johnboy 5:25 pm 13 Oct 08

Or check the relevant page from Elections ACT.

Now getting back on topic please…

At Woden you can vote at the Smith Family building at Easty Street.

oops, thats ginninderra… But they did cover Molonglo and brindabella too.

Overheard: Belconnen Community Centre, across the street from the bus interchange.

Overheard 5:02 pm 13 Oct 08

Er, that would be pre-poll voting…

Overheard 5:02 pm 13 Oct 08

Sounds cool, though I’ll be pfaffing around Tuross, Moruya and thinking about striking out early on Sunday for Jamberoo where I’m warbling with others.

Can anyone apprise me of whereabouts pre-polling for Molongolo is?

realityskin 4:53 pm 13 Oct 08

Sounds ……………… awesome…….

Fiona 4:51 pm 13 Oct 08

Already have a much more fun night planned up in Sydney… will be oblivious to the winner until I hit Canberra’s fine shores late sunday I hope!
