Rattenbury to contest Molonglo

By Thumper - 6 June 2008 6

According to the ABC, failed Greens candidate Shane Rattenbury will run for the Greens in the seat of Molonglo at the ACT election due to current Greens MLA Deb Foskey announcing that she was retiring from politics to pursue other work as a social and environmental activist.

Mr Rattenbury says this is his third attempt to enter ACT politics.

Although I think Mr Rattenbury is slightly on the loopy side of the left, I do agree with these words, “One of our key goals this election is to bring an end to majority Government in the ACT,”

I wish him all the best.

What’s Your opinion?

Combined with Mike Hettinger this will be the dream team for green left leaning Molongolo residents and an awful headache for Stanhope.

She spoke ‘the truth’ as it existed on ‘Planet Deb’. Slightly different to the real world

Good luck to him. At least Dr Foskey spoke the truth as she knew it. You may not necessarily agree with many of her views but you have to admire that quality about her. The Greens will go well so it augers well for Rattenbury. They will pick up some extra votes, as Stanhope’s team will come back to the field in the election. There are some right wing candidates standing in Molonglo who couldn’t lie straight in bed and have a shocking track record. One in particular -the divisive head tilter – needs to be given the flick. I’ll support candidates who will speak the truth over the sneaky deceitful types.

Canberra issues aren’t rocket science, I reckon it’s going to take a whole 5 minutes to be brought up to speed on local issues.

Yes, he’d be right up on local issues considering where he’s been living of late……..the Netherlands

Heard him on the radio the other day and he sounded as loopy as Deb Foskey. Why is it that the Greens can’t attract normal people to be their candidates?

Apart from Kerrie Tucker they are all fruit-loops.
