Sheikh calls out Seselja

Barcham 3 June 2013 21

Seeing as how Zed Seselja now obviously has more time on his hands, Simon Sheikh thought it would be a lovely idea if they met up for a bit of a debate over Tony Abbott’s planned job cuts.

Following Zed Seselja’s announcement of his resignation from the ACT Legislative Assembly this morning, ACT Greens Senate candidate Simon Sheikh has reissued his invitation to Mr Seselja to attend a debate on the topic of Tony Abbott’s job cuts and their impact on Canberra’s families. Sheikh wrote to both Mr Seselja and Gary Humphries during their bitter pre-selection battle inviting the winner to a debate, but has as yet received no response.

“Canberrans have a real choice this election. The public service is the biggest employer in Canberra. When you cut jobs, the ripple effects hurt all Canberrans. I’m asking Zed Seselja to debate me on this topic and explain to the people of Canberra why they should vote for someone who will go along with these cuts” said Sheikh.

Sheikh, who along with other Canberrans has been calling on Zed Seselja to resign from the assembly as soon as he gave up on the people of Tuggeranong, has welcomed his resignation from the Assembly, describing it as ‘better late than never’.

“Zed Seselja’s resignation from the assembly is an admission that you can’t campaign for one tier of Government while pretending to represent another. It’s about time that Zed resigned from the Assembly and stopped campaigning on the public purse.”

Apparently Sheikh has been asking for this since before Zed’s pre-selection circus and has yet to hear back, so one could see how he’d be getting a little bit tired of waiting for their debate/dance-off to take place.

Zed, come out to play!

Ironic that Simon Sheikh had been calling for the resignation of Zed when he himself was in hot waters over trying to sign up people during lectures at ANU

How is that ironic?, look up irony. go.

Yep. As I suspected. It’s not even slightly ironic. Not even in the Morrisettean sense.
