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.

What’s Your opinion?

Will she blackban anybody who disagrees with her blog postings like her buddy Andrew Leigh did with me? Or will she send out nasty messages to people who try to add her as friends like Andrew Barr did with me on Facebook?

She’ll quickly find she can’t get away with much on the Net.

Why on earth would Andrew Leigh blackban you?

Oh,

maybe because of this?

Leigh, you are an absolute tool. A typical left wing academic geek who has never worked a day in his life who joins a political party and has a job for life in a safe seat where the idiots will vote Labor even if Mickey Mouse was the candidate.

You might like to write masturbatory crap about young people and their so-called commitment to the future and belief in so-called climate change, but what about us? Pensioners who are sick and tired of electricity bills going up because of Labor’s renewable energy targets? Too scared to turn on a light because we can’t afford it? Staring down the barrel of not being able to eat because the carbon tax will escalate the cost of everything. ALL TO PLEASE A BUNCH OF GREENIES. All to give wankers like you a warm and fuzzy feeling. I don’t give a flying [OMITTED – DO YOU REALLY NEED TO SWEAR TO MAKE YOUR POINT? ED] about a bunch of naive kids and a mealy-mouthed politician who grovels to this wankery, I care where my next meal will come from, I care about my elderly mother and my aunts and uncles who are being driven to the poorhouse by this green zealotry.

I know that you are the darling of The Canberra Times and other members of the left wing/green set with all this crap you are spouting about climate change, but the vast majority of Australians are screaming out for all this to STOP! For a break from rising prices, for a break from grovelling to The Greens, for an end to air-headed wankery about “saving the planet” and for a break from ignorant tools like you living in a little bubble on the public teat.

I’m counting the days until the next election when you and the rest of your mates will be on the opposition benches and we can completely brush the nightmare of the past year or so. It doesn’t matter what a bunch of bike riding, latte-sipping public servants and their kids north of the lake tell you, there is real anger and hatred brewing towards you and this government in the real Australia, and no amount of “carrotmobs” at Ainslie Shops will ever counter that.

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

LOL. You should become a Milwall supporter ‘nobody likes us and we don’t care’

I believe that a good government is an open and accessible government

I meant to add something along the lines of, ‘then we can see a full inquiry into claims of bullying in the ACT health system?’

Among other things.

It’s a pulpit, but anyone can get one of their own, so no harm in it.

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.

I think we can settle that now. It will not be a robust forum.

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

Expect moderation of comments by her staff.
