Worst election leaflet ever?

By Gungahlin Al - 18 September 2008 46

Could this be the worst attempt at an election leaflet ever?

I guess we shouldn’t complain. When Kerri Taranto ran (stood?) in the Federal seat of Fraser, she didn’t even have an email address or phone number published. She was uncontactable by any other way than snail mail.

So at least this time she has those bases covered. But don’t expect a website loaded with policy for her tilt at Molonglo.

We’ll have to be content to ponder the true meaning (and cost?) of her proposal for a “below-surface suburban rail network”.

Might as well discuss – it’ll be the only coverage she gets all campaign… 

What’s Your opinion?

Last time we got Mike Hettinger’s leaflet that said “I am a nuclear physicist!”

– is he standing this time?

She wants a sub-way? So will she speak at the forthcoming ACT Light Rail meeting?

Haha, that is fantastic! Only to be topped (pardon the pun) by Ivan Milat’s sister/cousin/whoever she was giving her well considered views on euthanasia in the lead up to last year’s federal election.

iCanberran, only a matter of time before this thread gets flooded now with Open-Source zealots telling us Word isn’t the only word processor out there 🙂

Open Office is just like Word – it sucks just as much, but in slightly different ways. I really don’t actually get the open source projects that denigrate Microsoft projects and then try to be just like them.

There, you went and got me started again …

:sigh:

What an idiot, no excuse for such ugly and unprofessional material now. Five year olds using Word can put out better.

Yeah, except the spelling would probably be worse.

Mind you, what on earth is “gordinitriumph” supposed to mean? Was “ktaranto” not available so she picked a random mess of letters?

At least there having a go.

But so we really need (or want) an underground rail network? Where is it going to go?

LlamaFrog 9:14 pm 18 Sep 08

so she is not a green candidate? humm, hard to tell the difference

I think I have heard a figure thrown around that even a small subway system in Canberra would cost a couple of billion dollars. It’s good that Kerri’s doing her bit by promoting that, using minimal printing costs. Saving it for building the tunnels, no doubt.

Underground rail network!! Sounds expensive…

strangely enough I saw this post just after my flatmate allowed one of these pamphlets in the house much to the amusement of both of us. I was left wondering is it legal? I thought election material needed to have whom it was authorised by and where it was printed (woden library photocopiers by the looks)

Is that prepared on a typewriter?! The sentences are out of alignment with each other. Quaint. So many of the indies are delusional nutters, including most of the independents who have been elected since self-government. Maybe the nomination fee should be increased more to deter these timewasters who clutter up the ballot paper.
