Election Wrap – 3 October

By johnboy 3 October 2008 21

Ads:

The Canberra Times reports that the Liberals are crying foul about the ALPs nurse ad.

It seems the nurse in the ad, Naomi Clarke, is not currently registered in the ACT. Hilarity ensues.

Labor:

Megan Doherty in the CT has a Stanhopian hissy fit over “political point scoring” as a result of his public artworks.

John Hargreaves has announced that he’s kicked off the duplication of the lethal Tharwa drive.

Jon Stanhope is going to save the fluffy puppies with $100,000 for the RSPCA, but only if we re-elect him.

Mr Stanhope has also found $200,000 to restore a 1923 cottage in Weston Park.

Andrew Barr is providing $51,500 for the Canberra United women’s soccer team.

Greens:

The Greens have published an apology for Elena Kirschbaum’s incitement to emo abuse.

Shane Rattenbury has announced the Greens Energy Strategy. He’d like a renewable energy plant, other renewable stuff, and energy efficiency.

Liberals:

The CT reports that the Australian Christian Lobby is getting stuck into the Liberals for letting two people from the sex industry’s Eros foundation pay for tickets at a Bill Stefaniak fundraiser.

Zed is promising a more cycle friendly Canberra. All bow before the pedal power mafia, as do I.

CAP:

CAP have released a list of key policy statements on the environment.

James Sizer has said he wants all retail electricity sold in the ACT to be from green sources.

Are we sure that comment from the ACL wasn’t meant to go in the stand-up comedy thread?

Hi-larious.
