Troy Williams crossing the line?

Troy Williams’ efforts to get publicity for his run for the seat of Fraser know few bounds, he’s even ponied up cash to buy advertising space on this very website. (soon to run out Troy, want a renewal?)

Jon Stanhope is seriously unimpressed with reports that Troy Williams stickers are turning up “on traffic signs all over Gungahlin and north Canberra”.

“The fact that his Liberal Party colleagues are now defacing taxpayers’ property with stickers authorised and printed by Liberal Party President Gary Kent shows that no one in the ACT Liberal Party listens to Mr Stefaniak.

“It’s time Mr Stefaniak showed some leadership and made his Liberal colleagues remove these illegal stickers, and forced Mr Williams to be disendorsed as the Liberal Candidate,” Mr Stanhope said.

I can’t say I’ve noticed them in my travels but if someone wants to send me some co-ordinates I’ll get out there with the camera and add a photo.

Sacking offence?

UPDATED: The damn things really are all over the place once you start looking. Here’s two I noticed once I got out with the camera:

Hmm, looks like he’s not the first into this space with the charming Smack Big Chicks folk already there.

But where there’s room we get more:

CG, he had his mobile no on the bottom of the leaflet so I rang it – easy. I also got the line that he didn’t do it and couldn’t control what his minions did. (Works for Howard, so why not Troy?) That was last December though, so looks like not much has changed.
(Cue thundering response from Troy, telling us this is all a storm in a teacup while Kevin Rudd is planning to sell us out to the unions, etc.)

My gf was agro bout this and sent an sms to Troy. He said called something like that ‘though he didnt do it he would to the right thing and take care of it’. Is this a first, a politican taking some responsibility?

What’s Stanhope ever taken responsibility for? With the fires he blamed the fire service, the public servants, the fone company and more recently a judge and a priest. Its about time he bought a mirror, and looked for who’s responsible.

The problem with a candidate isn’t getting to speak to them, it’s getting them to stop talking.

i got that letter too. all it said was something about McMullan not standing up when schools all across his electorate were closed down. dude, you are as full of cr@p as McMullan, Stanhope, Williams and the rest.

I’m amazed that you called and got through to williams tho!!!! When was the last time anyone actually SPOKE to a mp, mla or candidate?

I rang Troy to complain late last year when one of his leaflets blaming Bob McMullan for ACT school closures (!) was lodged under my windscreen wiper – fine of $1000 applies last time I looked. He was unaware such things had been happening, couldn’t control what his minions did on his behalf etc. Definitely liberal leadership material!

In Canberra? HOW DARE SHE!!! Quick everybody, go through her garbage so we find out why she dared to cross over the wall.

And speaking of politics, I happened to see Ms Pru Goward this morning on Mort Street right outside the Times Square building.

Anyone know why the Liberal leader from Goulburn would be here?

ralph, yea, but how often have liberal pollies said “i didn’t know…”

Ralph 7:57 am 05 Apr 07

I spoke to Troy about this last weekend as I noticed them plastered over the back of traffic signs through Palmerston.

He was unaware that this had been happening.

So are the tacky orange Workchoices / David Hicks posters that are on every second lamppost legal? If not, then where’s the outrage over Stanhope’s union buddies putting those up?

Special G 7:50 am 05 Apr 07

Is there any evidence to suggest Williams actually put the stickers there or are stickers on public property grounds for resignation.

We should all get some Stanhope stickers and put them up all over the place. I very much doubt he would then call for his own sacking.

johnboy 7:13 am 05 Apr 07

On the other hand we all thought Bruford should go, I’d like to see what it is we’re talking about.

What *is* interesting is that our Brave Leader has been goaded into acknowledging a Liberal candidate and is giving him more oxygen than the stickers would have generated, while at the same time raising the Bruford ghost.

Ari 6:24 am 05 Apr 07

So Bruford’s vandalism was OK, but Williams should be sacked?

After reading Stanhopes press release I have found my answers to the legality and the Stefaniak link.

jacross 11:30 pm 04 Apr 07

I fail to see what placing stickers on traffic signs has to do with listening to Bill Stefaniak. Did Bill recently put out a press release deriding the placing of stickers on ‘taxpayer property’ that I missed?

The whole Stanhope release smacks of a very poor attempt at taking a shot. Why would the parliamentary leader have anything to do with disendorsing a candidate anyway?

In the realm of actions, stickers is hardly a big deal. I don’t know the law in this case or what exactly makes them ‘illegal’ but really, who gives a ****.

Troy Williams should be disendorsed for stickers the day that John Stanhope resignes for the death of numerous Canberrans due to his own malfeasance.
