God Talks To Jesus

November 29, 2007

Gary Ablett:

“For some time after it I used to worry about what people thought, until one day Jesus spoke to me and said, ‘Gary, most people don’t even know who they are, let alone who you are, so why should you worry about what they think?’

After that it gets weird.

Maybe Next Time

I missed this one on election day, but one of my mates actually got handed a how to vote card from Kev when he went to vote – apparently whoever was handing out these HTVs were as pissed as crickets before lunch.

Set Tasers To “Kill”

November 26, 2007

Continuing the Taser theme here lately, In the US and Canada, 6 people have been killed in the last week by police armed with Tasers.

Western Australia, the gleaming light of liberalism that it is, is the only Australian state that issues Tasers to all general duty Police officers. That’s 1,500 Tasers issued to WA Police, who as we all know are hardly sober rationalists at the best of times.

These dangerous weapons should immediately be removed from WA Police arsenals.

Stirling HoR Results

November 25, 2007

I finished 5th of 9 candidates in the Stirling HoR election.

Not a bad result on the face of it, but considering I had first position on the poll (and the “Donkey Vote” that goes with it), it’s probably not so impressive.

I did outpoll both Family First and One Nation though, which is nice.


Full breakdown is here

1. Michael Keenan (Liberal)
2. Peter Tinley (Labor)
3. Tamara Desiatov (Greens)
4. Ray Moran (CDP)
5. Sam Ward (LDP)
6. Denise Hynd (What Women Want)
7. Symia Hopkinson (Family First)
8. Alex Patrick (One Nation)
9. Keith Hallam (CEC)

I went into the election planning on preferencing Keenan, but after collecting all the HTV cards from those who were giving them out, Labor was putting me 3rd and the Liberals 4th. So I went tit-for-tat and gave my preference to Tinley.

In the end though, Michael Keenan got up.

Hopefully he’s not a shapeshifting lizard. If he is, I promise to preference the CEC next time.

Through my contacts in the liberal party, I got a sneak preview of their new how to vote cards, prepared by campaign whizkid Gary Clarke.
