RiotACT Sim Challenge Rolls On. Greg Tannahill for the Democrats

By johnboy - 13 August 2008 31

[First filed: August 08, 2008 @ 15:28]

We’re proud to announce that following Norvan Vogt’s starting round last week our next contestant has committed to the RiotACT Sim Challenge Canberra.

The Democrats’ Greg Tannahill has confirmed that he’ll take on the challenges of city building SimCity4 style in O’Connor’s All Bar Nun on Wednesday 13 August.

It’s starting at a more work-friendly 7pm so come on down, have a beer, watch a real life political candidate show off his priorities, and tell me about everything I’m doing wrong.

UPDATE: Just to remind everyone this is on tonight. I’ll be there wearing my RiotACT Pin so feel free to come up, say hi, and possibly buy me a pint. We’ll also be awarding Thumper his premium membership (and pin) for his tireless work for the site while I was away. Presentation to be made in front of the Todd Carney memorial toilets in a blaze of publicity.

What’s Your opinion?

Yes indeed.

Pony up $50 and you get your pin with a promise to upgrade your membership in the morning.

is that written on a bar coaster?

I’ve got something on tonight but I really want to get to one of these. They look like a bit of fun.

I wonder who (if any) from the majors will step up first.

Hmmm …. Still don’t know about showing my face!

In reply:
The ACT Democrats intend to re-register after the election. Hopefully with a couple of new MLA’s elected as well, to Keep the Bastards Honest!

Hey, can I ask as a bonus question, will the Riot-Merch be available at this one? (or possibly my ability to pay premium membership by chucking a head-rioter $50 – largely for the “keep the bloody thing going” factor, and of couse the ability to strop about not paying you again)

The tech media led to an interesting debate on Q&A. Banarby Joyce is officially an idiot…’I heard there was a game where you could go around raping people.’…..what…f-king game have you been playing, Joyce?

johnboy 6:05 pm 08 Aug 08

The dems weren’t allowed to re-register in the same year they were de-registered, which caused them the problems.

On the brightish side we’ve been picked up by the tech media.

(assuming they don’t win a seat) Are the ACT Dems going to reregister as a party next year?

Skidbadnir: What is the purpose of your candidacy?
Greg Tannahill: To crush the major parties, see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentations of their women!

I have no problem with candidates enjoying a drink (I do it myself), so long as they don’t drive themselves home.

Got that (both points). ‘Lame attempt at humour’ is my middle name. A b-tch to fit on the birth certificate, but what can you do?

Can we remember to mention which electorate any candidates are running in, so we don’t bother asking Brindabella-specific questions of the Ginninderra-based candidates?
(Greg is a candidate for Molonglo, btw)

*Norvan*

Christ, on fire today with the typso.

Norman was making short work of those pints. I think the technical term is ‘lobbying for the position of Minister for Territory and Municipal Services’.

“and tell me about everything I’m doing wrong”
Now that’s gonna be hard for a lot of folk to pass up… 🙂
