With the election only days away the Lismore Knitting Nannas have put their needles on pause today outside the Lismore Environment Centre to undertake the arduous task of assessing the applicants for the position of Federal Member for Page.
As a ferociously a-Party-politi-cal environmental disorganisation of extremists (so they have been told), the Nannas made a point of asking each applicant to respond to the same selection criteria regarding their final position on Climate Change.
Out of the seven job applicants, five submitted their responses (one rather reluctantly after the media made a point of it) and attended the interview. Applicants for the Position of Senator also attended interviews.
As we enter the last week of the two (and a bit) ring circus that is the federal election campaign, the Nannas are delighted to open the curtains and share the KNAGging lists to present the results.
Whose head remains above the rising sea-levels? Which applicants are clinging by the skin of their teeth to the spar of Climate Change policies? Just whose floaties failed to inflate after being given ample opportunity to blow?
Nanna Judi Summers said after diligently grilling each interviewee (and managing to keep down her dinner) it’s high time the pollies listened to the kiddies and acted on Climate Change. ‘This is an emergency and there is no room on the lifeboat for deniers and fudgers.’
