Johnboy to sermon Liberals

By kimba 17 April 2007 28

A friend sent this notice to me….I wonder if outsiders can attend? Johnboy at a Liberals do – I’d love to see that 🙂

The Gungahlin Branch presents…
Johnboy – founder and moderator of RiotACT website.
What motivates a political blogger and how on earth does he keep coming up with the stories? What are the issues that he feels people really care about?

John Griffiths (Johnboy) was Born 1973 in Sydney to a navy family and was bounced all over the world on postings until 1981. He attended North Ainslie Primary School, Radford College and ANU, spent 2 years backpacking around North America, Europe and Asia during which time accidentally ended up managing a busy West London cineplex.
Johnboy returned to the ACT in 1997 and started working for Capital Monitor keeping organisations with a keen interest in policy and regulatory development (Banks, Telco’s, NGOs and Government departments) up to date from the Parliamentary Press Gallery.
He founded RIotACT in November 2000, while trying and failing to impress a girl. Since March 2006 has been trying to earn a living from independent web publishing.

Where: Gungahlin Lakes Golf and Community Club
When: 8 – 9pm Thursday 26th April
Bring: money for raffle! We really are fortunate to have such a mover and shaker coming to address our branch, so bring along any available friends or relatives – this will be a great night!
RSVP: 25 April to Alyssa Badgery:

[ED – *sigh* yes, I was asked and agreed to do it. I should note that I am available to any groups who would like me to speak to them, within reason (no NAMBLA, Nazi’s etc)]

Kerces, mission accomplished.

I’ve met Johnboy and I’d just like to vindicate some commenters here. His breath smells like cheese and failure, he scratches at a scabby patch on his crown, everything he touches turns to scubble and Kerces is actually a hirsute WOW addict.

And I met him TWICE once for MORE THAN AN HOUR. That makes me, like, TEN TIMES more qualified to speak to his failings as you.

And as we know 10 x 0 = 0.

**** off and make your own damn blogs you snivelling whiners.

We are looking forward to Johnboy speaking to our branch and guests are welcome (we’ll get boucers for the night… joke!) Seriously – I think most members of the Libs know what the problems in the party are… its just solving them that is a little trickier! In he mean time we’re going to be the best informed branch in the ACT – listening to our members’ contributions about how things could be done better and listening to speakers who can help us to work out how to make waves in the ACT too. Everyone should join a political party if they have time – the parties are only what their members make them into and a few motivated members can make a great contribution – instead of just feeling helpless or cmplaining all the time.
Chair, Gungahlin Branch, Liberal Party ACT

It was only tongue firmly planted in cheek here also JB, in case you didn’t pick that up.
Personally I’m sure you’re relishing the chance to explain to the ACT Libs why the majority of RA contributors think they are a bunch of lame ducks, lining up to lose the unlosable…

for the record, I am not bagging you out, it was merely tongue-in-cheek. Good for you for doing it, hoefully it means a little more kudos and more cash for you.

“I don’t see me knocking myself you ignoramus.”
get a little touchy there, sheez…
I wasn’t referring to you knocking yourself, you commented that the knockers have nothing better to do with their time and I was merely commenting that by being a guest speaker, you evidently didn’t have anything better to do with your time either.

was it disraeli who said “never complain and never explain?”
or maybe not

anyway… JB… you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone… ignore the c*nts

Aw, JB your not getting that much flack.. just from some knob who gets off on being negative. Good on you and I hope you have a good night.

I think it’ll be a hoot.
Do let us know of other such events, I’d like to get to one. Am doing something else that night unfortunately.
