Comment on CLP pre-selects Steve Brown for Araluen by Ian Sharp.

Democracy in action, a bit of argy bargy and back and forth, but no grenades or bullets.
Let’s celebrate it.
Steve wouldn’t get my vote, I’d hate to see become Minister for the Environment!
But good on him for standing and giving people a choice.
We need more people to take an active interest in politics and be prepared to put their hand up.
I would love to see Daniel Davis have a go for the Conservative side, maybe next time around?

We had a couple of good ones, including Kym Davies, did a lot for the kids, including a boating expedition on the Roper. And kept the staff in line too.

I think there are tight restrictions imposed by international treaties that make this difficult. Also a problem in the US as detailed in a 2014 article which outlines some of the hurdles.
