Game on – Greens launch Senate campaign

By johnboy - 27 April 2007 28

The Greens are kicking off their concerted effort to win seats in the Senate and have sent in the following for those with an interest:



Lead Senate candidate Kerrie Tucker will introduce our fantastic Greens team of ACT candidates
Margret RoadKnight & Jeannie Lewis will launch our campaign with an inspiring concert

Plus surprise events
Celebrate the powerful vocals, wit and wisdom, flair and soul of two of Australia’s greatest performers. Margret RoadKnight and Jeannie Lewis first collaborated 40 years ago, and their paths have continued to cross as they’ve explored political songs, gospel, world music, cabaret and other styles.
Tilley’s plays host to the perfect launch of our campaign to see Kerrie Tucker elected as Greens Senator for the ACT, and immediately change the balance of power in the Senate.
Greens members $25, Others $35

Available from ACT Greens 8-10 Hobart Pl, Civic T: 6247 6305, and at the door, Tilley’s Cafe Lyneham
Authorised by Roland Manderson for the ACT Greens 8-10 Hobart Place, Canberra City 2601

If they can fill Tilleys at $35 a head it starts to look like real money.

Moving right along, I am amazed how anyone can feel threatened by a fund raising event held at Tilley’s. How bizarre!

Awesome night of mucsic, cheap too. Ah!!!!!!! the senate racing season is upon us again. Let the games begin!

Sorry johnboy, you just really angered me. I appologise. I should say facts rather than angry words that do not progress my arguments.

With regards to your comment Maeliner. By your logic, Labour doen’t need to come up with anything. But if these parties don’t come up with anything, then why should we vote for them?

We vote for parties whose policies and ideas are in line with our own. Labour proposes environmental and education policies to show what they would do and to show a better way (in their opinion) to do things. So should the Greens. They should leave the radical protests and radical policies for Greenpeace and others who are on the front lines. To the Greens, I say:
When in Parliament, use the office voters have given you to shape government policy and the government’s agenda. But first, develop some policies that give us faith in your ability to represent us in Parliament and your ability to work with (or against the government) for your policies.

the Greens should be working on ways to make solar technology and personal water catchments (ie water tanks) a reality

Its not the job of an out of office government party to come up with those things. Its the responsibility of the in office government party.

Or your drunken late night rant was ignored as the drivel it was.

Take your pick and enjoy.

Looks like I had the last word!

“5 star toilet” meaning 5 star water rating on the toilet. Tried to get a six star rated systern but it seems Australians really like to make sure nothing comes back:)

“Because if the carbon cost isn’t priced in to the economy measures it can be a false economy.” -JB

I once had to shovel cow manure on a farm. 200 head of cattle couldn’t have done more B.S. than you JB!

Besides, you missed my whole point. I’m saying instead of proposing short term, grandiose plans that will do nothing very little to stem the massive increase in Greenhouse emisions over the next 50 years… the Greens should be working on ways to make solar technology and personal water catchments (ie water tanks) a reality.

Furthermore, making efforts to make out own homes more environmentally friendly can in no way do more harm.

Sorry JB, but you are one ignorant S.O.B! And yet, it is understandable. After all, someone in you financial situation will be hit hard by global warming and water shortages. You won’t be able to afford a bag of Bells ice much less a fan or air conditioner. A pity you fool!

If nothing else, I’m very interested in the concept of a ‘5 star toilet’.
