Election result shift, 8/8/1 a possibility?

By johnboy - 22 October 2012 179

The ABC’s Antony Green has some updated numbers on the possible election outcome.

He’s seeing a chance of Labor getting three seats in Ginninderra at the expense of the Greens’ Meredith Hunter.

This would give us an 8 Labor, 8 Liberal, 1 Green assembly.

With only 84% of the vote counted and little serious preference information we maintain it’s far too early to be calling these close final positions.

And much too early to be horse trading.

What’s Your opinion?

Look Zed, this “disaffected Labor voter converted to the Libs” schtick was funny for a while but it’s starting to wear a bit thin.

I think you would’ve done a lot better by following the example of your colleague Matt Watts, and simply engaging with the community here under your own name.

What are you basing this nonsense on?

I imagine hes basing it reading your posts.

That is not a basis – it’s misguided speculation.

Id consider it more of a working hypothesis. There does seem to be reasonable evidence to support it too…..

This. Is. A*Mazing.
John Moulis’ Seminude Serenades are the kind of YouTube coverage that Canberra deserves, rather than the coverage it wants.

( and if he thinks this swayed the election, more power to him)

Did anyone actually win the ACT election?

Seems the population is pretty much split between dumb and dumber (and if you count the one green fellow) and dumbest.

I wish you hadn’t done that, Andrew. That has got to be one of the sickest things I’ve ever seen (or part seen).

How about Zed vs Katy in a dance-off to decide who will lead the ACT?

Elizabeth Lee didn’t make it in, damn good to see. At least that’s one selfish egomaniac who won’t get in. Had she won, the campaign office and branded vehicle may have set a new trend and looked smart. But now it just looks stupid and wasteful.

It’s called brand recognition. Look it up. Elizabeth is easily one of the nicest and least egotistical people that ran, but people already knew Jeremy, Steve, even Giulia. They didn’t know Elizabeth from a bar of soap, and she needed to get her face out there so that when she did the hard yards doorknocking, meeting people at shopping centres, etc, they wouldn’t respond with ‘er, who ARE you?’.

After reading this rubbish, I’ve never more wanted to vote Green in my life.

As long as you keep those Cthulhoid thoughts to yourself, everything will be OK.

Thank you to the people of Canberra for responding to my YouTube videos and letter to The Canberra Times and almost completely exterminating The Greens. I thought it would take at least two elections to whittle down the influence of The Greens in left wing Canberra, but the fact we managed to achieve way beyond my expectations literally overnight is very satisfying indeed.

I was surprised at the clear air I received on YouTube. None of the parties or candidates posted their own videos and if you typed ACT Election into the YT search engine, my videos were the only ones which came up. I can’t understand why nobody else campaigned via YouTube, perhaps they thought it wasn’t local enough.

Congrats to the voters are also due for the huge swing to the Liberals. I said in my videos that it was time for a change and a fresh start with a new government and new chief minister, and the majority of voters agreed.

Shane Rattenbury now has a moral obligation to put Zed in as chief minister since the Liberals won more votes than Labor.

Yes, I’m sure those 79 total views of your YouTube videos had a huge impact on public opinion. Well done, sir, for championing your right-wing cause and reaching ever so many people.

Pity it was most likely all for nothing seeing as the Greens hold the balance of power and a Labor/Greens minority government is the most likely outcome.

He’s the bloke who used YouTube to tell us to exterminate the Greens.

Don’t you know anything…?

Umm, you do realise the Greens still hold the balance of power in this assembly?
