By johnboy 14 February 2013 58

OK Rioters, the Liberals have a new leader and his office has agreed to answer your questions.

Let rip in the comments (brevity will be smiled upon) and I’ll pick ten questions to send over.


What’s Your opinion?

Sorry I couldn’t get more in!

what is your favourite ‘poetry in action’ piece? (and how are you going to fix action and the issue of public transport and parking in canberra?)

frontrow 12:41 pm 18 Feb 13

Under the Liberals, will parking fees be set to effectively ration parking, maximise revenue or punish drivers in order to encourage public transport?

Will parking meters be upgraded to accept cards or at least notes? If not, will you at least be able to buy pre-paid parking vouchers for Civic in Civic?

Will flexible work arrangements be supported by offering pre-paid vouchers for non-consecutive days?

Can you do us all a favour and continue to reject any kind of partnership with the crackpot greens? Thanks in advance.

Jeremy, howzabout getting the gay marriage issue out of the way. Follow David Cameron’s lead and introduce gay marriage to the ACT. In fact, introduce the legislation while in opposition. The feds wont dare intervene, and you can occupy the high moral ground as it gets through. Your christian conservative constituents will get over it.

Given that Section 109 of the Constituion invalidates any law of a State which is inconsistent with a law of the Commonwealth, what steps will you take towards an amendment of the Marriage Act to enable ‘gay marriage’? Or will you bank on the legal loophole of the Constitution being silent on Territory’s regarding this issue and table an Act in the ACT LA?

How do you view the current split of government versus non-government employment in Canberra? Do you have any plans to try to change this? How and why?

Do you prefer poker machines or live music?

1) Why has it been about 15 years since the ACT populace viewed the local Liberal party acting as a viable government, let alone a viable alternative government, and how will you address this?
2) What do you see as the four largest cross-border issues the ACT faces, and how will you adress those?

Bonus question: I have previously visited Whyalla and your Federal leader promised me that it would be gone by now. Why is it still standing, and what will you be doing at a local level to address this?

    questions will be judged and sent at noon today as a nice little birthday present.

Diggety 11:00 pm 17 Feb 13

What are the Liberal principles that differentiate your party to that of Greens/Labor, and what vision for the ACT can you offer as a reflection of that?

Jane Doe 5:31 pm 17 Feb 13

What is the stance of the Libs on expanding Canberra Airport to make it the second Sydney Airport and the associated rail link that would be required

What would you do to make housing cheaper. Not easier to buy (land rent, etc.) but *cheaper*.

Given the cost of building materials and labour these days, the only way to make houses cheaper is to release land very cheaply indeed. And since the ACT govt relies on land sales as a substantial part of its revenue, it’s not going to happen.

Don’t have clue about what you are talking about, huh?

How about some sources there, pal?

Materials are incredibly cheap ATM

I’ve built more than one house and renovated several others, including recently. Materials that are ‘incredibly cheap’ are typically imported from China and are of very poor quality. Labour is getting cheaper, but it’s still expensive, especially when compared with OS.

How many houses have you built recently? Or major projects? Where do you get your information? Perhaps you could bring some actual facts or experience (or both) before throwing stones.

How about as recently as January?

3 in the last year.

I know you can get stuff very cheaply, but trust me – don’t.

I’d like the Liberal party behave more liberally and stop telling us what we’re allowed to eat, drink, smoke and inject.

But I suppose you support all Labor’s nanny state interventions?
