Federal Election ’07 – Call for email interview questions!

By Administrator 20 October 2007 105

OK, so yesterday Howard called the long expected election date for the Federal Election being November 24.

With a date now set Riot is reinstituting a long neglected feature being the email interview. We are going to send a set of 10 questions to each Senate and House of Reps candidate in Canberra’s electorates with questions coming from the best that are submitted from our readership. So submit your questions below and remember these are questions that will be sent to all candidates so don’t make them party specific and we wont be selecting any that are rude or childish – controversial and inflammatory is fine though 😉

For those interested the ABC’s Election coverage can be found here.

This post will be bumped to the top of the page each morning this week and the final 10 questions will be chosen over the weekend and emailed to all the candidates next Monday, October 22.

What’s Your opinion?

I went to the recent Lodge open day and I was stunned that a house of that standard was the official residence of the PM.
I was embarrased to think the PM would entertain heads of state etc in such a pokey dark house which looks like it is stuck in the 1920’s. It needs to be maintained as a musuem and more appropriate accomodation built. No wonder no one wants to live there! I wouldn’t live there either.

Government house on the other hand was just spectacular.

How about:

You gave the excuse of growing children when you chose to live in Sydney rather than The Lodge. Costello announced this morning that he will not occupy the Lodge – what is his excuse? Senator Humphries, what do you have to say about this?

When are you going to give these environment wrecking, do-gooder, ban-it type greenies a good kicking?

P1, that statement is inaccurate. Where there is water, regardless of the level of the water, a high percentage of that water conatins DHMO.

While your attempt to be pedantic is quite inventive, I thought of it before I hit the send button, and concluded that regardless of the drought, DHMO is still found in high levels wherever water is found.

You would be correct if I had said ~present in High Levels in creek beds, stream beds, dried up ponds, empty billabongs, etc etc… but I didn’t so it’s not.

…and is present in High Levels in every creek, stream, pond, billabong, river, lake and reservoir in Australia ?

This is incorrect, due to the drought there are actually very low levels in most creeks etc.
