RiotACT Sim Challenge Round Four – Adam Verwey, Independent for Ginninderra – Tonight!

By johnboy - 28 August 2008 40

Tonight at All Bar Nun in O’Connor, from 7pm, the Independent anti-poker machine crusader, and candidate for Ginninderra, Adam Verwey will be showing off his Sim City skills for the benefit of the RiotACT readership.

The action will be up on the big screen in the back room for all to see.

Come on down to hoot, holler, and heckle, or just have a chat to the RiotACT team.

Also those who prefer to pay cash for premium membership can pay Jazz for on-the-spot pin conferral followed by swift status upgrade.

UPDATE: For the benefit of future historians it should be noted that the image of Adam, which I had somewhat lazily hotlinked from his site, originally had him in a double breasted green blazer over polo shirt, which many of our readers thought to be a sign of a deranged mind.

With thanks to Skidbaldnir who’d kept a campaign launch invitation here’s a look at the Adam of old.

What’s Your opinion?

…and holy crap – is that a striped polo shirt he has under the jacket?!

tylersmayhem 4:42 pm 28 Aug 08

That’s the worst suit I’ve seen since my year 12 formal suit hired from Roger David back in the 90’s!

johnboy 4:40 pm 28 Aug 08

That jacket reminds me of a suit my parents bought me back in ’92.

Bloody lefty ruining economic confidence with that jacket and polo combo

Overheard 3:22 pm 28 Aug 08

I thought it was just a comment on the fact that he appears (in the picture) to be leaning to the left. (That’s his left, not stage left.)

‘Independant’. I’m pretty sure he leans quite strongly to the left.

Independence in political terms does not connotate an independence from a particular ideology (which is an impossibility) but from a political party.

Judging from his UCSA days, he is leftwing though.
