The march of the young Liberals

By johnboy - 29 July 2013 7

The Canberra Times’ overly attached girlfriend has news of the growing power of the young liberals in the grown ups party:

The Canberra Liberals’ youth wing has taken over two of the party’s key branches, forcing out executive members who have criticised senior party officials.

Young Liberals have won ballots to chair the party’s largest branch, the central electorate branch, as well as its southern branch, with party members saying the division is in the midst of a civil war.

The Young Liberals, led by MLA Alistair Coe, were key to former Opposition Leader Zed Seselja’s victory over Senator Gary Humphries in the division’s controversial Senate preselection in February.

Good luck to them if they’ve got energy for this sort of thing.

Alistair Coe? I guess he is pretty young by the Liberal Parties standards, but according to wikipedia he is almost thirty. What age do the young-ish Liberals kick him out?

When they reach puberty?

Young Liberals never reach puberty.

As soon as the name, Alistair Coe, was mentioned – any respect for any of them has to disappear right out the window.

If anyone has the potential to turn out to be more useless than “Capt Snooze” Zzzzzed – it’ll be mini-me Alistair “Kim-Dill” Coe.

Unless federal Labor wins this time, and next time, it’s difficult to see the ACT Liberals stumbling in to Government, so maybe most of the “grown-up” local Liberals have decided to devote their energies to more satisfying and rewarding pursuits, such as their self-managed super funds. If so, this is a shame, as it would be nice to have a plausible choice, and to avoid the growing feeling that a move across the border, or somewhere entirely different, will be necessary to escape being caught up in the consequences of the fiscal idiocy and denialism of ACT Labor and Greens.

Curious at the OAG reference, is it just because of Lisa Cox’s image?
