Katy gets her blog

Chief Minister Katy Gallagher is celebrating her 100th day in power by announcing that she’s started a blog:

I believe that a good government is an open and accessible government. I will be blogging on a range of issues that I deal with as Chief Minister, as Minister for Health and Industrial Relations, and as a local member representing the people of Molonglo. I want to hear your comments on my posts. I will try to respond as often as I can but if I do not reply please know that I am reading your comments. Please remember that that this is a public forum so be respectful in your comments. Thanks for taking the time to visit and I look forward to having a great conversation with you and hearing your views and concerns.

Looks tasteful.

As with any blog it’s all about the iteration rather than making an oil painting. Time will tell.

Some suck better than others.

Just wondering about a broken vacuum cleaner. Does that suck or what?

I like the way you rail against socialism but are on a pension.

Almost as good as Mr Moulis going to the Labor Club for Christmas lunch. I kid you not!

I might be a conservative but my stomach is politically agnostic, especially where seafood is concerned 🙂

Ah the lolz. At least he has his picture on twitter so I will be able to avoid him next time I go to his local shops at Pearce.

I’m proud of that comment and I stand by it.

And that tells us all we need to know about you.

Not that we didn’t already know it, haha.

John Moulis has a blog?

BWA AHAHA HAHAHAHA HA HAHA

What does he post about? I though we already knew that the ABC, the Greens and everyone who’s not a far-right wingnut is part of a conspiracy to enslave the world (via the climate change red herring) that will install a one-world government under the control of the reptoids … ssshhh … there’s a black helicopter hovering overhead – quick, put your tinfoil hat on so that they can’t read your thoughts.

Or is it all about how 2GB, big cars and bodybuilding and completely awesome (and totally not gay)?

No I don’t have a blog. As someone once said “Bloggers are the uninformed talking to the non-existent”.

But you do have a twitter account.

This is not how Arianna Huffington views the situation.

Hmmm. How much did we pay Push for this? What’s wrong with WordPress?

The interesting part is whether Katy’s blog will be a robust forum, or a whitewash.

Worryingly, looking at the code, it is WordPress…all they’ve done is put a custom skin on it.

Shoot! You’re right. I should have spotted that myself. But there’s a comment saying no government money was wasted on the blog, so that’s okay, I guess.

It’s Delicious from StudioPress, $US79.95. I use the Lifestyle theme from the same people for my own blog(s).

Expect moderation of comments by her staff.

Will public servants be used to run this?

Not public servants as such, but certainly people on the public payroll.

You know what I’d really like Katy to blog about? I’d like someone to explain just what the hell went wrong when they hooked Aranda up to the GDE.

Oh my god, I almost missed the bit where a failed journalist and career public servant was going nuts against a politician “who has never worked a day in his life”.

BWAAAAA HA HA HAH AHAHAHAHAHA AH

DUB DUB 8:35 pm 23 Aug 11

LMAO, game of politics sounds a lot like bunch of 5 year-olds having disagreement in a sand pit, telling on each other and calling each other names.
“You are not my friend anymore!!”-BANNED. 🙂
At least now I know who are Andrew Leigh and John Moulis. Bloggers?
Congrats to Katy on her tax payer funded blog.I hope it will not be a waste of our money and it will be read by many people.

I told Andrew that in order to try and scare him in order to stop him constantly harrassing me and trying to contact me via my YouTube account after I unfriended him on Facebook.

I have trouble believing anyone would go to this trouble over facebook.

Its an interesting way to try and engage with the electorate. Good luck to her. Perhaps we will see genuine engagement in the comments area like JB occasionally does, and some public figures do on their blogs.

Sadly, most politicians blogs/fb accounts are generally updated by staffers – there is no debate, as its just another form of media to them.

For a man who spends all day slinging insults at others, you are remarkably thin-skinned.

John Moulis blocked me from commenting on his blog when I politely disagreed with one of his crazy rants. When I questioned him about this via private message, he reported me to the AFP.

No joke. He tried to drag “the feds” into an internet disagreement!

I did not drag “the Feds” into an Internet agreement. I told Andrew that in order to try and scare him in order to stop him constantly harrassing me and trying to contact me via my YouTube account after I unfriended him on Facebook. I don’t like stalkers or flakes who can’t understand the rules of engagement on Facebook.
