    Now just watch the public lap up what this babe has to say because of her looks and earlier movements in the public arena !

    She has stated that she supports the mill ! which for me makes her “automatically ineligible”.

    “independent Labor” ? yeah right ! not as long as my arse points to the ground.

    Hmmm………”Independent Labor” – sounds a bit like being a little bit pregnant.

    Launceston Alderman Ted Sands will be standing as an anti-mill candidate for Windermere. He really is anti-mill having attended just about every meeting and protest of Tasmanians Against the Pulp Mill since fast-tracking of the pulp mill assessment.

    Tasmanian Labor is moronic. ‘Independent Labor’ is oxymoronic. (Ask Terry Martin.)
