ACT election

Postby HBS Guy » 20 Oct 2012, 22:21

Labor got the highest number of votes, Green vote went down.

Likely the assembly will be hung with 7 Labor, 8 Libs, 2 greens.

Not that anybody really cares. . . :bgrin Hmmm Naffie will, her part of Canberra swung to Labor :jump

Greens—on the way out

Postby HBS Guy » 21 Oct 2012, 22:50

In the ACT the Greens suffered a substantial swing against them and lost half their seats in the ACT Assembly.

Poor old skippy, not too blessed with brains reckons it is to do with Brown retiring.

Nah, generally it is the Greens position on asylum seekers that is the problem. People don’t like the callous/hypocritical attitude of the Greens to people drowning trying to get here.

In the ACT the Libs ran a scare campaign and a minor party like the Greens get crushed when the two main parties are toe to toe with each other. Long term and short term decline operating in the ACT then.

Remarkable that in a place where government is the major employer, the public doesn't seem to understand that the fibs will do a Newman on them.

Oh, I don’t think they will vote like that next year. Libs made rates the issue.

Really, a Labor vote of 39% and Greens on 11%—Libs nowhere! Only the stupid Hare Clark with Robson rotation (wjatever the fuck that means) sees the Libs with one more seat than Labor who got a higher vote. In 2013 Lib vote will be lower, PSs not gonna vote for an axe through their ranks.

Yeah, ele that does look like the final result. 11% of 17 = 1.87 so Greens should have 2 but them’s the breaks.

Abbott calls for Liberal and Green coalition in the ACT


I’ll prepare a sign saying “Zed Seselja = Christine Milne’s bitch” for him to stand in front of.

On my estimates, the Labor Party stands a very strong chance of electing Yvette Berry in place of the Greens' Meredith Hunter

Not a good time to be a Green!

They HAVE to get real on Asylum Seekers, that is the issue that is killing them.

Really, their tragedy was that they went into Parliament. They would have served their objectives better by staying in the WWF and all the environmental/activist groups which are now starved of funds/recognition which all goes to the Greens.

When you look at the policies the Greens have up on their website it is a mishmash of contradictory policies (low population to improve sustainability but then open slather for Asylum Seekers) none of which are costed or funded.
