Election Wrap – 27 September

johnboy 27 September 2008 3


James Sizer is going in to bat for the taxi drivers. He also appears to be siding with the taxi industry and using the “situation” to take shots at John Hargreaves.

Norvan Vogt is railing against large round numbers being offered as a substitute for policy or process.

The Liberals are kidding themselves. The ACT community will not vote for such a disunited team. They have had 3 leaders since 2004. The most inexperienced Liberal – Mulcahy’s former protege -is now leader. Zed won’t cut through. He is not the answer. Stefaniak’s departure is a body blow for the Liberals in the Belconnen electorate. Granted Jacqui Meyers is a quality candidate and will do well. However, Dunne and Coe – also strong Mulcahy supporters – are disliked amongst Liberals let alone the community. Such right wing candidates will not attract votes. Kent has the same problem. You need to lock in your own support base or you are in trouble. The community will punish Labor by placing their votes with the Greens and some independents. Likely result: Labor 7 to 8 seats (probably 7), Liberals 6, Greens 2 to 3 seats and one independent (Mark, the radio guy).

The ‘chit-chat’ voiceovers drive me spare . . . so contrived, so rubbish.

Just a small comment. The ads. All parties. I’m getting sick of them and have been tuning out as soon as they become recognisable. Local TV commercial time must be cheap. It’s not as if the Canberra Times wouldn’t run anything from anyone, in the idiotic belief that “someone wants to say it, so it must be news”.

The worst TV ads are those where the candidate, from heaven knows what electorate and party, makes a Seinfeld claim – one that has nothing to do with anything. The two on my mind are the woman whose claim is that she “lives here” and the bloke who says he played sport in the area. I mean – these are serious candidates? Their claims would be interesting if and only if they were untrue and I can’t imagine that anyone would fib about this level of trivia. Please stop before my head explodes with the silliness of it all.
