With a year to go before an election the Liberals Zed Seselja has announced some policies:

    Rego cuts

    Money for local sport

    An independent Public Administration Commission to attempt enhancements the integrity of the public service.

    Promises of prompter invoice payments, particularly for local business.

    An infrastructure commission to try and cut down on expensive cockups.

    Hard to argue with, although it’s unclear where the money is supposed to come from.

    Now let’s see more!

What about you Johnboy? Any thought to entering politics? Wield the vast Riotact empire as an election machine?

I generally take the view I can do more good by not getting down in the trenches. And it would be almost impossible to credibly go back to commentary after candidacy.

Fair enough. But are we too content? too wealthy and generally happy to bother?

Let’s just blow the ACTs horn for a moment – best educated, diverse, creative, wealth, active in so many spheres – So why out of this pot do we get Katy and Zed and the various freaks and children that make up our current elected reps?

You don’t get first rate leads in a second rate show. There is more money to make and more power to wield in the public sector or as a lobbyist.

A wise position. It’s a pity that more don’t take it.

eugh…not even bush-league. I know we live in a small jurisdiction but seriously there must be enough talent to scrape up a decent government and opposition.

How does one reduce fees for groundhire but increase funding for facilties by $3.5M? Wonder wher the additonal money is going to come from?

The rego cuts sound great, until you read the release – they are only removing the additional fee charged to those who pay by the quarter/half year. Rego will still be hideously expensive for everyone.

I wonder how often he used the term Families?

The Greens are unkindly pointing out that they’ve already got agreement to reduce business payment times by 15 days more than Zed is going for.

On the other hand what’s that agreement worth?

A good night’s work to put together that lot.

Rego cuts eh? So how to pay for all those roads they want to build?

Bit surprised they’re going out so early.

When oppositions do this, governments often cherry pick and then turn around at election time and say it’s all been done.
