I've got a sentimental attatchment to the place obviously... but it's really sheer bloody mindedness that's kept it open for so long. And in all honesty if *I* can't be bothered to turn up here for months at a time I can hardly blame anyone else for going elsewhere!
Given that I have leanr the hard way to use a throw away email account for contact from here, I'd hate to see some poor honest bugger get attacked by bots as I was in the past. The current small crop of posters all appear to have been savvy enough to do the same
What country are you referring to? Is it the one owned by the yanks? CC/Amatil? They bought out a good Oz company to make a buck, so let the yanks get them out of trouble. Where do you think that the profits were going to?
I can sort of see the point of standing... it might have been the seat that swung victory Labors way... however he isn't doing the right thing for his constituents who voted for *him* as much as for Labor!!
If that's the case CC, he shouldn't have put his name forward in the first place... he is taking his bat and ball and going home, like a little kid. Which confirms that he shouldn't have been elected in. Pity.
Indeed. The only 'excuse' might be if he suddenly discovered that his heart issues are somewhat more serious than he's let on in the past and wants to spend more time at home with family. Otherwise... makes you wonder just how cynically politicians treat their constituents!!
