No second coming for the Canberra Liberals

By johnboy 5 February 2007 27

The Canberra Times has the non-news that Kate Carnell is not going to return to the toytown parliament and save the Canberra Liberals.

More interesting is that the business community is casting around for someone, anyone, who can be a messiah for the conservatives (they’re not much chop as Liberals under Bill Stefaniak). You can be a long time waiting for messiahs and gods tend to help those who help themselves, so you would think they’d be better off trying to build an effective team with what they have.

It’s a bit like the old question: “Did I start drinking because my wife left me? Or did my wife leave me because I started drinking?”

Are the Liberals fragmented because they’re performing badly? Or are they performing badly because they’re fragmented?

I suspect that if they did look a chance at forming Government they’d all be lined up and singing like choirboys for Big Bill.

Certainly if the people of the ACT want an interfering busybody looking to improve us, rather than represent us, we can do quite well with the devil we know.

She looks a lot OLDER than her claimed 51.

If she was 60 tthen she would have Buckleys chance given that at the next election she would be around 62 and be seen to be a has been.

At 51 she still has a chance of getting back in.

Not quite sure what you’re talking about there TAD, in that case we’d deleted the problem comment off our own bat, in this case we were happy to do the same and the offended party agreed to our course of action.

We’ve never been happy to be used as a mud pit by people we don’t know.

Does Pandy’s comment actually relate to anything?

Kimba: fyi not a staffer – and definitely not a rusted on voter. We desperately need an effective Opposition in the ACT and clearly don’t have one. Stanhope and his team need to be kept on their toes. The best way for that to happen now is for some independents to emerge and for the ALP to have to keep a cross bench on side after 2008.

The great Kimba knows better than the person involved?

I think not.

Always great to see a a bull go at it in a china shop.

She is 51? Gee I would have thought at least 60. So she is still young enough.

About time you did some maitenance on the logs don’t you think?

If the request comes, get some legal advice first.
