Gwyn Hooper, Uki.
The recent implosion of the Liberal Party has all but guaranteed a change of government at the next election.
This has resulted in the seat of Richmond to be less critical in the removal of the ‘muppet show’.
Labor should easily win the election with or without this seat.
It thus gives environmentally concerned voters a lot of power over the sitting member.
If every concerned environmentalist preferenced her last then she will not be re-elected!
This may result in a National Party member for the next three years.
It’s my belief that this would not be so bad. Short term pain for long term gain!
It would highlight the contempt that she has shown to environmental issues, having the opinion that ‘who else could you vote for’ smugness.
The feeling in the Tweed Valley over the Labor councillor’s vote for water extraction has galvanised opinion to follow this course.
Preference last is the way to go. Enough is enough.
Vote against the water extraction or not get re-elected!
No brainer for me.
How much does she need her seat?
