Mike Kelly needs to rethink his slogan … ?

By I-filed - 21 July 2010 31

On the telly just then, Mike Kelly’s slogan:

“Keep Kelly Working”.

I think it’s a shocker – as though the objective of your local member is to stay in work his or herself! Sense of entitlement much?

What’s Your opinion?

How about

“Keep Kelly’s Jelly Belly Smelly”?

It’s just a suggestion – I didn’t say it was a good one.

It may or may not be a ‘good’ one, but it’s definitely an improvement.

I’m with the Nationals and we attend every show across the Monaro that’s possible and I have only seen Mike at two shows – and all he did was a walk through.

He was once to open the show and didn’t turn up.

Everyone knows that the country show is the social event of most small towns and villages.

I know that former Member, Gary Nairn, used to attend every show possible as does the State Member, Steve Whan and the Nationals candidate John Barilaro.

Good god, no wonder the Hick Yokel Redneck Wurzel Party sorry Nationals don’t get any support. If you think “attending country shows” is the best way for a politician to spend his time “working”, you should read a book on “p-o-l-i-t-i-c-s”!!

keep kelly working – elect someone else and give him a job at raodworks enforcing speed limits; someone has to!

I don’t think he would be very good at this job…I saw him once just prior to the last election at one of those MacDonald stops on the Federal Highway – he happened to be leaving the same time as me and he shot off into the distance at a roaring speed well in excess of the speed limit.

Well, I think it’s entirely appropriate.
The only other fitting slogan for him would be
WAKE UP MIKE

I’d say it was a very apt slogan for Mike Kelly because if you hear any criticism of him across the electorate is that he is lazy.

I’m with the Nationals and we attend every show across the Monaro that’s possible and I have only seen Mike at two shows – and all he did was a walk through.

Kelly seems to want all the timings of office but doesn’t want to be a local member!

It does appear to be legit coverage, here’s something from The Age dated today, mentioning the slogan.
Its terrible, in that it isn’t a statement of any kind, but carries the connotation that he needs to be forced to do things instead of the “Let him keep doing good things for you” they were most likely after.
Alternately, it offers a kind of implicit threat that the public will be responsible for things going wrong.

But it becomes mildly entertaining if you imagine it similar to the bus from Speed, and that Kelly becomes a public threat if his productivity drops below a certain threshold.
For the love of god, Keep Kelly Working!!! If he stops, KABOOM…

(Idea for campaign advisors: “Kelly Works” diferentiates Kelly from the competition in that he does work, and they don’t…)

Eden Monaro isn’t it?

Kelly’s got the gumboots on for ya

or

I do Mo for yo

or

Free beer for ya vote… maybe

I think he’s going for “Allow Kelly to keep working (for you)”, as opposed to “Make Kelly work”. It’s not a good slogan if you have to think about it, though.

That is wrong on so many levels.

I am over ‘moving forward’ as well. Roll on 21 August!

Worst slogan I have ever heard – it implies that he needs to be pressured to keep doing his job, perhaps he could change it to “Perfromance manage me to stop me being lazy”.

He will have a new slogan befroe the end of the campaign.
