RiotACT was always a huge fan of Free Range Canberra’s quixotic quest for seats in the Legislative Assembly.

We were particularly looking forward to seeing how their beliefs would have worked out in our Sim Challenge Canberra.

Sadly we had the following reply to our invitation to participate today:

    Their has been some confusion with the Electoral Office as we will not be standing candidites this time around.

    for FRC

A sad, sad day for democracy in the ACT.

Scratching around for candidates?

we would have only been overthrown by the giant free range chickens roaming the streets anyway

Nothing to crow about.

Sooo, they’ve just been running round with their heads chopped off?

they just can’t give a cluck anymore.

They chickened out. Their campaign’s ova. They ran afowl of the Electoral Commission.

Sigh! It’s even sadder now.

(Sorry; someone here was egging me on…)
