    Don’t urge them, make it COMPULSORY!

    In fact it should be made ILLEGAL.

    That says it all. How can one improve on the Ticket wrangler’s advocacy for nothing declared under $13,000, and the strings pulled to achieve that end, both here and in the Senate where he is now a prominent backbencher awaiting a promotion from the Liar From The Shire.

    Look at the end of the strings and see the confused look on Wee Willies wisage. Rather like the usual vacant look of him
    as he contemplates how long before the Minister For Standing Still (Fergie’s son) takes his place at the end of Erica’s string!

    NOTHING change here until Tasmanians do a WA .. and we rid our political arena of an Abetz!

    It’s good to see above that the supporter of the “right” side of the theatre is a donor to the Liberal cause!

      Can someone please explain to me why some people (a nutter minority) seem to think Eric Abetz has a disproportionate degree of influence in/on Tasmania?

        Simple: Least popular person number 1 on the ticket … a puppet premier who ‘knows nothing’.

        You’re welcome.

        Most peeps seem fully aware of the problem. I reckon if we took a statewide vote we may well have a substantial ‘nutter’ majority.

        Ta for the gaslighting.

          Thank you for that insight, Spikey.

          There is currently only one parliamentarian in Tasmania who appears to fit the criteria for schizotypal personality disorder.

          What I suggest you do is get together with other like-minded people, vote some more of them in, and then you guys will be able to spin conspiracy theories till your heart is content.

          I am sure Tasmania will be all the better for it.

        Who decides which candidates will come to our parliaments, and the order in which they come?

        Is it the Ticket Wrangler who arranges the vote by insisting that only voting above the line? Is this the Liberals wish? Did Wee Willy state that the influence of Erica Betz would be negated two elections ago, and did he succumb to Uncle Otto’s nephew instead?

        Why does this man and his cabinet wish to sell the ABC along with Wee Willy who cannot recall if he voted for it or not?

        Will the ABC and the HEC be privatised along the Leaner’s lines (Hockey) for some handfuls of silver?

        I am sure many in Tasmania recall the Pulp Mill, the MIS schemes, and the hand behind the trees along with their accountant Mantach!

    In the Liberal’s Tasmanian Facebook page they, the Libs, are calling the Labor and Greens liars over the claims that the Libs received 5 million dollars in donations from the pokie industry.

    New documents released by the Australian Electoral Commission show the Tasmanian Liberals received a total of $4,168,930 in the 2017-18 financial year, with only about $400,000 is attributed to the pokie industry.

    However, the true amount of contributions to the election may never be known, with rules stating only donations above $13,500 need to be declared .. a convenient loophole for the grubby Liberals.

    Whatever the donations, whether it be $400,000 or $5 million, it still came from the misery of pokies addiction.

    Shame, Liberals!
