For the Knitting Nannas it is a matter of letting all politicians know what they think about their policies. Today it was Labor candidate for Page Patrick Deegan who they had in their sights. They set out in their very own convoyette of electric flinstone vehicles to meet up with Mr Deegan pre-empting Bob Brown’s Stop Adani convoy that started in Tasmania yesterday.

‘We have an appointment for a chat about his and his party’s promises, and to present him with our 2019 Federal Election KNAGging list,’ said a spokesnanna.

‘Sadly, our current political employee, Kevin Hogan, is far too busy being important to make an appointment to give us 15 minutes of his time. Poor fellow, working so hard to help us save the land, air and water for the kiddies.’

Nannas from all around Australia will be descending on their local candidates with the list, which asks the candidates for their firm position on five national environmental issues. Each KNAG loop will add two local issues to their list. To find out more or join the Knitting Nannies check them out online.
