Things to do to Canberra? Bring on the Bolt reforms!

By johnboy - 23 May 2012 67

Andrew Bolt is running a particularly mean spirited post on things he would like to do to Canberra.

Some tests that this haven of Leftism could be required to undergo:
– convert to 100 per cent renewable energy, with all the costs to be born by the locals.

– impose the carbon tax ahead of the rest of the country.

– make do without its share of coal-derived income.

– legalisation of all recreation drugs, with all addicts and traffickers involved to be dealt with at Canberra’s cost..

– a double of the immigration and refugee intake, with all arrivals to be required to live in Canberra. All boat people to be transferred to Canberra for home-stay accommodation.

The idea that people who hold a differing ideological view to Bolt should in some way be punished is quite vile. Especially when placing collective responsibility on an entire community simply for harbouring those guilty of thought crimes.

Having said that. How awesome would Canberra be if this was implemented?

The drug law reform could conceivably pay for the renewables cost and foregone coal revenue.

And the influx of enterprising boat people would do wonders for the town. Half of Sydney would be coming down here for the weekend every weekend!

This is a bloke whose conduct the Victorian court of appeal described as: “at worst dishonest and misleading and at best, grossly careless. It reflects upon him as a journalist.” And he is a bloke who has been found guilty of racial discrimination – that is pretty serious unlawful behavior. And it wasn’t because of his opinion, but because he didn’t get his facts right. The court said his articles “contained errors of fact, distortions of the truth…”.

So it’s a bit annoying, but I don’t think anyone takes him seriously.

Also i kind of love the carbon-tax suggestion… correct me if I’m wrong Rioters, but unless Canberra plays host to at least one of the top polluters surely there’s no-one here to carbon-tax?

Another misinformed and lazy attack on canberra pandering the vast uneducated d*ckheads out there in Alan Jonesland.

Bingo.

A brief look at the 2008 ACT election results reveals that a whopping 53% of Canberrans voted for Labor or the Greens on first preference.
Aren’t we just the most radical leftist city in the country?

2pp at the last federal election was more strongly Labor for the two Canberra seats, but so what? Bolt isn’t out there attacking the people living in seats like Lalor, Gellibrand, Gorton, Port Adelaide, Scullin or Wills, despite those electorates being far more “leftist” than Canberra.

Geezus, there are some nutjobs out there with a lot of bile in them.

Considering the majority of politicians come from outside the ACT I’d say that reflects more poorly on their respective states in the “real world” than ours. :\

The problem is that stupid people tend to agree with Mr Bolt.

Although I suppose that means they won’t come here, which is a good outcome.

legalisation of all recreation drugs

Heck yes!

The first thing I would do is invite Bolt over for a massive smoke-up using my solar-powered vaporizer.

Quite the echo chamber he’s set up in his comments section there.

They probably delete any that don’t agree with him (or feature correct grammar and spelling).

No more or less than you’d expect from a moron like Bolt.

I love it. I want all of these things to happen. We will need a canal from the coast, with a lot of locks, to be able to get the boat people here.

Amen.

Can you traffic something that is legal? Do Harvey Normans traffic HDTVs?

What a tool. Where’s Justin Monfries when you need him?

I read that as ‘riot-control assault think tank’. Now that would be truly Canberran!

The brain-dead have outsourced their opinion-forming to Bolt and his ilk. I’m surprised he writes this stuff down though, writing and words are not these peoples’ preferred medium, they like radio.

However. We could make a good bash at being renewable. Retro-fit a hydro scheme with all our mountain dams. And, re-capture the Lake George wind farm and get the electricity for us. It was built to power Sydney’s de-sal plant, but it’s in our backyard. Salvage rights and all that. We have a para-military force, the AFP with their helicopters and riot-control assault tank thing, we could give Bolt and his zombies something to really feel angry about.
