Jeremy Hanson bad. Then good.

By cmdwedge - 12 September 2012 23

Great reporting from the Crimes this morning. And a very impartial

First, the Assembly Clerk’s office denied ever approving Hanson’s request to allow his wife to use the car.

Then, the backpeddling.

Opposition is a thankless job.

What’s Your opinion?

Yawn… so all the labor staffers want Jeremy to be leader. So original. Too bad you don’t get a say in it!

Was tempted to make this call myself … presumably “backpeddling” is when you return an item to the place of purchase.

Spelling fail on my part. Apologies!

I think the only chance the Liberal party has in Canberra is having a socially progressive leader, Kate Carnell but she was certainly the best and most electable leader they have had.

I don’t think that Canberrans will cop a social conservative like Zed and I am amazed that the parliamentry party can’t see that.

I’m not super heavy into politics, I don’t know much about it. How do leaders get selected? Why is someone who has proven to be a incompetent halfwit like zed leader and not someone who is pretty much regarded by all like Jeremy Hanson leader!

Yes, why doesn’t a political party, that I’m never going to vote for anyway, choose a leader that I like better than their current leader.

Teriffic journalism as usual by the crimes. Picking up the political rubbish from the labor party and run with it without doing any research to the legitimacy of the use of the vehicles. Like any other executive vehicle that is part of the individual’s salary, it can be used for private purposes as much as the individual wants, it just gets recorded in the vehicle’s log book for FBT purposes..

The apparent grasping for straws the government has resorted to isn’t doing much for their credibility either.. Come back and cry if he starts using the car for political advertising purposes or if he starts to dodgy up FBT numbers.

You know the saying that an ambassador is an honest man sent overseas to lie for his country.

Well in the case of politics, often, a similar thing can be said of those below the leader and his clique. And that’s probably why increasingly certainly in federal politics, there are more eloquent, honest and thoughtful soundbites coming from backbenchers than from the leaders.

Wouldn’t mind seeing Hanson take over.

Having recently met Jeremy he seemed like a competent and intelligent human.

When he first started the politics game he knocked on my door. He came across the same way. I have had quick chats with him at the shops a couple times. He should be leader of libs, not halfwit zed.

This.

That.

I know Jeremy Hanson in an acquaintance kind of way through my husband, and every time he appears at the same social gathering he remembers my name, remembers the name of my son and is genuinely interested. Trouble is, he’s too nice to challenge for the leadership and the gonks in the liberal party have not twigged to the fact that he is a way better operator than Zed. In my opinion Zed is a good alienator of people because he is has a very specific background..Young, family oriented, no other experience other than politics, success with little in the way of experience….

Jeremy on the other hand is older and therefore more experienced, has had a prior career, is intelligent and can handle himself in the rough and tumble of politics and maintain a position.

I have a family and possibly as a female should really identify with Zed and his cost of living mantra, but I just don’t. I would like to see a match for the current government, and that is not the Libs as they stand.
