T -4. An election digest

By johnboy - 16 October 2012 4

By popular demand the election digest returns. A blog within a blog things will be added as they arrive and will often be items that wouldn’t get their own story.

If you want your material included mail it in to john@the-riotact.com and keep checking this page through the day.

We begin.


Apparently without shame Chief Minister Gallagher is citing health statistics to show she really is brill. Elective surgery numbers looking good if you think you can trust them.


The Greens expressed great enthusiasm for trains of all kinds.


Former Queanbeyan Mayor (and founder of the Pangallo independents) has announced he rather fancies Zed for election


Team Katy are promising more duplication of services across Hayden Drive with a UC SportsHub


The Brumbies are nailing themselves to Labor’s sportshub election promise.


Simon Corbell has been re-announcing his plans for emergency services hubs. Soon the plans will be old enough to vote.


The Property Council made clear they hate Andrew Barr’s tax reform plan.


Team Katy have promised to bring fun to the Tuggers pool. In the form of a water play facility. Why no fun was provided all these long years is a mystery.


Zed expressed his pleasure at getting Frank Pangallo’s endorsement.


The Liberals are back to motoring with promises of Belconnen Parking.


The Liberals’ Vicki Dunne has a new report on mistreatment of the John Flynn Community Group by the Community Services Directorate.


Zed does not think Labor are bringing the fun at all down Tuggers way and is holding out for a full fat second pool.


The ABC reports that ClubsACT are warning against voting for the Greens who do not appear to be sufficiently enthusiastic about the gambling palaces.


The bullet trainers are complaining that the Greens like fast trains too. One would think they’re going to have to learn to share their toys.


The Greens are sadly acting hurt they’ve not gained the approval of Clubs ACT.


ACT Labor is trying to tell us Katy Gallagher is “Tech-savvy”

This about a woman who has the words “welcome to my blog” on her website.


The Greens’ Meredith Hunter is promising $600,000 for financial counselling services in the ACT.


The Greens Caroline Le Couteur is pushing for an Urban Tree Trust to make up for the inability of governments to manage the urban forest in the long term.


Someone from Labor found $2 million for community sports facilities.

‘#teamkaty’… looks like the Presidentialisation of Australian Politics thesis is coming along nicely.

Not really sure if that’s helpful though in a Hare-Clarke electorate. It’s not the favoured candidate who needs the profile, it’s the next 4 down who have to gain the hinge seats. And for the life of me, I couldn’t say one thing about most of them because they’re such non-entities.

I dare say the Liberals have the right marketing approach, ‘Vote Liberal and Vote only Liberal.’

The Property Council made clear they hate Andrew Barr’s tax reform plan.

If you read their press release its because they want stamp duty phased out more quickly than Mr Barr does.

Madam Cholet said :

‘Apparently without shame Chief Minister Gallagher is citing health statistics to show she really is brill. Elective surgery numbers looking good if you think you can trust them.’

Obviously you have been out of the country – be careful where you bandy the word shame about, especially in relation to a woman.

I’m not saying anyone or anything died about it.
