Some advice from two wise elders: Many years ago my grandpa gave me some advice on punting, which seems to me very similar to electing a winner in all political elections.
Never punt on dogs, and avoid punting on horses. But it’s fun and exciting, so if you can’t resist, go for it. But caution: Don’t get sucked in.
If you back a long shot – far out, great! – but remember it was a fluke and was probably rigged. Once again: Don’t get sucked in.
You may ask ‘What’s this got to do with the election of a mayor?’. Bear with me…
My observation of most of the candidates is that they have ‘L Plates’ attached to the trousers and dresses. Sure, some of them have had experience, some a wide range of it. My wisdom says that a team is a team and should be kept together.
Without his or her team he’s on his own, and I think that four screwed-on heads are better than one at avoiding obstacles and making more informed decisions, after all, that is what they’re paid for.
Yes, most of them are long shots. We as citizens of the Byron Shire can expect, over the next four years, to go through an extremely trying time with possibilities of a double disillusion in the Federal parliament (the major parties).
Formed together in a coalition and have done so since this COVID no sense had started.
The ever growing problem with vaccine injuries and I may remind you that vaccine injuries is not a grazed knee or a twisted neck like, have a disprin and lay down.
No it is a serious reaction, once in the blood it’s there till death do us part.
So, I think that it’s essential we make the right choice based on past form.
How they get on with the institution, called the council. Sure in the past you’ve supported your friends. I think we have to go beyond friends and be absolutely ruthless.
Yeah, we need solid winners and not hot air machines and young mares and fillies.
Of course, we must consider voting Independents as at this time I feel Nationals, Liberals, Labour and Greens are a bunch of donkeys. You only have to look at them on the federal level.
Yeah I’ve studied the form and I reckon I can see four horses to put your money and confidence on.
Michael Lyon, Peter Westheimer, Soma and Jeannette. Good form this mob, and I reckon Sparky Marky should stay with Barefoot Law, a service that has helped many people.
Anyway, that’s my five bob’s worth. I hope it’s worth more than five bob.
