Steven Bailey running in Canberra for the Mad Katter

By johnboy 7 February 2013 27

The ABC reports that despite the best efforts of his friends (your correspondent included) man about town Steven Bailey is going to run for the ACT Senate for Katter’s Australian Party.

Composer and theatre director Steven Bailey, 29, has been endorsed as a candidate for the Senate.

Mr Bailey says he will be focusing on public service jobs and saving the ANU School of Music.

“When there was unprecedented support to keep that place open last year, I asked where was Labor, where was Liberal, where were the Greens?” he said.

“The ACT had no voice to keep that place open and I’d like to bring that back to the fore.”

Mr Bailey says the Katter’s Australian Party should not be judged on misconceptions.

“I’m not here to ask the ACT for their vote, I’m here to earn their vote and that’s what I’ll be doing over the next seven months or eight months,” he said.

“How people relate to the party is up to them, all I can do is do my best and listen to the people of the ACT.”

Apparently they’re also going to take a swing at Gai Brodtmann in the southern seat of Canberra.

For those who’ve missed the Katter magic, enjoy the above video, it’s real.

Who once rode a moose?

Just like Teddy Rosevelt

@jimbocool – Your point was perfectly clear, just illusory under preferential voting. Why would rusted on conservative voters who are flirting with another conservative party direct preferences to the Greens ahead of the Liberal Party?

tetranitrate’s Gary vs Zed scenario has some plausibility but it seems a big price to pay to make a point. I suspect Gary’s supporters are more likely to hold their nose and vote Zed at 2 rather than open the door for the Greens.

Also, some of the noises he made were ambiguous, in a gender cliche sense. That’s a huge worry, Bob…

Ah yes indeed one can take the boy out of the bush but he’s yet to come out of the closet!
