Chamberlains - complete legal services for business

Zed Seselja has held secret, closed door, private meetings with Tony Abbott.

By Jazz - 10 October 2012 56

As the ACT election draws ever nearer we typically see all sorts of mud slinging back and forth between the major parties. Today, citynews brings us word that ACT Labor have accused The Canberra Liberals of holding “secret, closed door” meetings with Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.

Apparently challenger to the throne Zed Seselja had previously indicated he wouldn’t be talking to Tony Abbott about the local campaign & Labor are furious he’s seemingly going back on his word… as if that never happens in politics.

What’s Your opinion?

ACT Labor poling must not be looking good for them to be getting into a tiz about this. Honestly, who cares if he has a private fundraiser with TA?

I would want the leaders of both parties to be talking – frequently- to Federal leaders. Our local political leaders should be representing and protecting the interests of ACT residents as federal policies are formulated. Steg @vicars31

You spelt Abbott wrong.

Haha. Did he spell it M I S O G Y N I S T……

Before everyone jumps on that statement, I am one of the few that seem to believe he’s not. I just thought I should say it on behalf of females everywhere.

Funny that they should talk though. Who’d have thought. Should we all just ignore the fact that JULIA TALKED TO KATY YESTERDAY…..

There is a difference – the Chief Minister made no secret of the fact that she would be meeting with the Prime Minister. Seriously stop being such a Liberal stooge, it is getting quite dull.

You know between the out of the blue light rail announcement, the tacky attack website and pathetic manufactured non-stories like this, I think perhaps that the government is spooked. Shame there isn’t any public polling (though that’s understandable given the cost and the size of the jurisdiction).

Being spooked could explain why they are suddenly keen on being pioneers in privacy legislation – http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/act-could-lead-way-on-privacy-litigation-20121007-277p2.html
Funny, just as a party campaigning on personal privacy starts making some noise…

I know. I posted it deliberately to demonstrate what rubbish gets dragged up to try and score political points.

I can’t wait for this election to be over, seriously, who cares. I would be more surprised if Seselja *wasn’t* talking to Abbott.

God yes. Let’s get a government so we can bag them and pontificate about how much better we could do it.

Still trying to drum up support by making shit up I see.

I’m sure the millions of us that have meetings with the door closed will be heartened that one day the Chief Minister could jump up and down about it and that the city news could run with the story on a slow news day. In short, who the hell cares??
