policies

The Canberra Liberals have just dropped a huge slew of policies:

Today, ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja outlined a comprehensive plan to give Canberrans better basic services and lower rates and charges.

We’ll link them in as we get them online. But here are the headlines:

Those are some pretty huge cuts to revenue streams for the ACT Government, as well as new spending. Where is the money coming from?

The Libs are playing Canberra voters for fools, we know they wont cut their revenue streams.

They will give with one hand and take back with the other.

We’ve had 11 years of Labor. Canberra voters clearly are fools.

At least Zed knows the demographic.

I’ve voted Liberals for most of my life. I used to live in Sydney, and I couldn’t stomach the idea of voting for Labor in any NSW State election I’ve voted in. Looking at these policies, I think it’s time to recognise that when voting for State and Territory governments, service delivery is a more important consideration than ideology. I’m sick of political parties implementing policies that are simply wealth transfers to rich homeowners, whether they be the first home buyer’s scheme (which is by far the worst, because it’s supposed to reduce prices for new home buyers, but simply raises them and transfers the money to homeowners) or solar panel subsidies.

All I want for Christmas is hard waste collection, green bins, and at least a punt at fixing our woeful public transport, not a tax discount and wealth transfer to the wealthy and an upgrade to roads.

The problem with this black hole is that it doesn’t go far enough.

That’s my guess. It’s certainly plausible for the libs to get a 3rd seat in Brindabella, but unless an independent can win in Ginninderra or Molonglo at the expense of the ALP/Greens there’s just no way.

Come on down Chic Henry.

Not that simple. Labor have lost a huge swathe of primary vote getters in Hargreaves and Stanhope, the Liberals are coming off historic lows, Labor in general is not a happy brand, and it’s a Government that’s been in office a long time.

Not saying Labor can’t get back in, just saying the game is still in play.

Can Val Jeffery get the oldies out in Tuggeranong? Can Chic Henry get the traditional Labor voters of Belconnen to vote 1 Summernats?

I’ll put my prediction out there.

Greens 2
ALP 7
Libs 8

ALP minority government.

Oh come on, Rudd promised the universe and everything within it.

And then deliver a small, rather inconsequential pebble which probably got stuck in his shoe at some stage of the election campaign.

It can be soooo hard to work out which side of politics people are aligned with sometimes….!
Hahaha! Lucky my disinterest in their ideologies, actually more the fact we don’t really have a left and right – more two shades of conservative ‘middle’ nowadays – means I don’t get as passionate about these things! Call me simple! 🙂

Correct. both partys are conservative morons. it just seems that labour are a tiny bit less incompetent.

Re polling, you don’t really need any to predict the outcome. Greens to get minimum 2 seats 1in molonglo 1in ginnenderra. That means libs need 9 of the remaining 15 seats. Impossible so we will have another Labor greens gov in the act.

So we can all complain about:

Plastic bags
No fireworks
Gov buying out cage egg farms
All two lane roads becoming 1 lane plus bike lane
Public “art” on road sides
Ect ect

At the end of the day who ever wins we are all pretty lucky! If this is all we have to complain about
