THEY DIDN’T LISTEN THEN. PERHAPS THEY’LL LISTEN NOW…

By Mike Welsh

FROM MY CITY NEWS COLUMN “SEVEN DAYS” OCT 2019

 YEAR out from the next election, ACT Opposition Leader Alistair Coe has candidly confessed it will take a miracle to loosen Labor’s almost two-decade grip on power in the capital. 

Miracles aside, all the party needs is to appoint Mark Parton leader. The former radio man is ready made for the role, principally because he is the exact opposite of the string of dry, beige, awkward Canberra Liberal leaders who have spectacularly failed to pressure successive Labor governments. 

He is genuinely enthusiastic about politics, people like and respond to him and, tellingly, he’s had a career outside politics endowing him with that rare but essential gift – the common touch.

One thought on “THEY DIDN’T LISTEN THEN. PERHAPS THEY’LL LISTEN NOW…

  1. That was I just thought it was very interesting, because, you know, you hear these people some of the people the Democrats said “Oh, this, that.”  It never even was a part of their dialogue.  Now they bring it up because you see what happened.  So now but they didn t bring it up, but I brought it up.  I brought it up a long time before I made the trade deal.  And I was not easy to deal with.  I was not easy to deal with.  They understand that.
