Election wrap – 14 October

By johnboy 14 October 2008 25

Morgo lands a hit!

Labor ran the following ad last night:

Interestingly Katy runs a part of the opposition attack on her leader (from the youthful Brindabella Liberal David Morgan) and then comes to the defence of the old curmudgeon. I can’t help thinking Mr Stanhope would have preferred not to get this sort of “help” from his deputy.

Health:

The Canberra Times has had an expert run an eye over the health policies of the major parties and found both wanting.

Greens should take themselves more seriously:

The ABC brings word from Malcolm Mackerras that the Greens should have run a full slate of candidates to take advantage of their surging popularity.

Campaign launches:

Yesterday’s laughable campaign “launches” by Labor and Liberal have been looked over by the Canberra Times.

The Australian:

Jon Stanhope has told the Australian he’s not arrogant. Also he’s expecting to lead a minority Government after Saturday.

Zed cops the Angry Voice:

The ABC reports a really good old school Stanhope tantrum at the leaders’ debate with Zed copping a gobful:

    “Imagine the implications for this city if the Liberal Party forms government after this weekend, a party that has been tuned out completely for the last four years,” he said.

    “Zed in bed – how fitting that the international sign for being asleep is the letter zed.

    “Zed at the head of a party that simply fails to see the tsunami of demand that heads in the direction of our health system.”

    Mr Seselja declined to directly respond to the Labor leader’s accusations, instead using the debate to focus on his party’s key platforms of housing affordability and education.

    “I think I’ll respond to the work of fiction when we’re doing question and answer,” he said.

Greens:

The ABC reports on Green sorrow that they’ve been left out of today’s Leader’s debate organised by the ANU and the Canberra Times.

Shane Rattenbury is pointing out that in recent Senate debate on Canberra airport Labor and Liberal voted against a curfew on the airport’s operations.

CAP:

In response to yesterday’s curiousity about his signage Norvan Vogt has sent in a whole slideshow documenting his processes. Thank You Norvan.

I’m not sure how to answer that question Jimbo. I like Tuckey and think Katter is a schmuck.
