Tom Tabart, Victoria
When I saw that mayoral aspirant Mark Swivel was hosting a post-Buck$ AVO seminar I was struck by what appeared to be political opportunism. Noting a current AVO plaintiff was the keynote speaker did nothing to dispel this impression.
From the Buck$ ad last week it appears Mr Swivel may be hoping to ride to electoral glory on the issue; his candidate announcement certainly needs a bit of work.
The plaintiff in question seems to have gone quiet, doubtless waiting anxiously for written support from the fearless males that decorate the other slots on the Greens ticket.
I recall that when Buck$ was a councillor (yes, Clyde, he was) he appeared at a meeting in full Jesus Christ rig (forgotten the issue).
I hope he has kept the costume as it appears there is more than one party out there busily constructing crosses for him.
