Zed Seselja wonders why Labor won’t give Lanyon Valley a pool

By Barcham 27 February 2013 24

After Zed’s victorious campaign against the Pogos over the weekend he has now turned his mighty gaze onto the residents of Lanyon Valley and is wondering why Labor hasn’t given them a pool yet.

In the Assembly today, Mr Seselja will call on the ACT Labor Government to outline when they will develop more community facilities for the Lanyon Valley residents.

“For too long the people of the Lanyon Valley have not had reasonable access to important community facilities like a pool, community meeting areas, a public library or recreational facilities,” said Mr Seselja.

At the 2012 election, following an extensive period of community engagement and feedback, the Canberra Liberals promised to build an indoor pool in Lanyon Valley.

The Government has been asking for Zed to step down from his committee roles after he defeated Senator Gary Humphries in the Canberra Liberals preselection contest. In a move that surprises exactly nobody, Zed seems to have decided not to listen to the Government and instead is doing whatever he wants.

Also why should he listen to them? They won’t even give Lanyon Valley a pool!

What’s Your opinion?

Smooth move Zed. I’ve got an idea for how you can serve the community, get out of the assembly and stop taking our money when you’re nothing more than a very lame duck MLA.

Demand for a pool in Lanyon Valley has probably been lower then you might think, cause they have much closer access to Point Hut Crossing (about ten minutes for a teenager on a pushie then most of the city. So the serious, vocal, segment of the community that you would normally hear on Today Tonight after a hot week in summer find something else to whinge about.

Damn straight!

For too long the people of Canberra outside of the Lanyon Valley have not had reasonable access to rivers.

When are the Canberra Liberals going to commit to provide rivers and swimming holes for the neglected residents of the rest of Canberra?

I want my river!

Somebody needs to explain to Zed how this politics thing works. It’s not all branch stacks and shenanigans because you got staff on the management committee in the real world you know.

The way it works is this:

If you don’t vote for the government you don’t get, simple. Because, let’s face it, if you’re not going to vote for us, why should we do anything for you?

If you do vote for the government, you don’t get. Because, if you’re too stupid to change your vote and put us on a knife edge, we’re going to take you for granted; and you get nothing.

Now sod off and stop asking us for stuff.
