Karin McDonald to stand down

By Gungahlin Al - 23 January 2008 41

ABC is reporting that ALP MLA in Brindabella Karin McDonald won’t contest the next ACT election in October.

Also, ALP preselections open next month.

Apparently she hs an “exclusive” interview in the City News due out today about it all…

What’s Your opinion?

They’ll find another Labor whore to keep the seat warm – It’ll be some back room hack with the personality of a door-bitch and the charisma of tinea. I speak the truth.

As one clown goes, the ALP starts the search for another, confident in the expectation that any time serving hack they put up will be elected. Such is the state and capacity of the local Libs that the ALP is probably right.

We’ve got more than 300,000 people. Surely we can do better than the ALP drones, the Lib drones and Foskey that we have now.

She always reminded me of a rat.

Seems appropriate she is seeking to leave a sinking ship.

Good riddance.

Or “US Forces”?

He wasn’t absent Mr Evil, he just had his iPod going listening to Beds are Burning.

“He should do a Rudd and tell them all to shut up.”

Peter Garrett must have been absent the day he said that? 🙂

No big loss….she hasn’t done very much. I hope Gentleman, Smyth and Pratt also get out and give someone with some talent a run.

Failing that, we will be seeing a new brigade of loopy independents getting elected, or more greens.

What it needs is the rest of the Libs to fall in line behind the Z man.

He should do a Rudd and tell them all to shut up.

“Mr Stanhope says the Government will have a tough battle to keep its majority under the ACT’s electoral system, where incumbency is an advantage.”

If Zed cracks the whip and gets a bit of discipline happening in the ACT Liberals, Stanhope might have a tough battle to keep his pants, let alone a majority! 🙂

Well, I live in hope! 🙂
