“Jacinta Price is so very much disliked by a large proportion of Aboriginal people in the electorate,” and while his coconut meme was headline material for the Murdoch press, it remained silent on Price’s online “accusing Muslims about their private racial accords,” writes Greens candidate George Hanna.

Tina MacFarlane, the 2016 CLP candidate for Lingiari and a white pastoralist, performed much better in the remote area voting than her successor in the current election, Jacinta Price, whose campaigning relied heavily on her Aboriginality. By ERWIN CHLANDA. Now she’s going back to council, the ABC reports. FULL STORY »

2636 Jimmy Cocking how to vote SM

 

 

It seems certain that the out-of-touch Country Liberals, commonly know as CLP, have failed in their bid to stop Warren Snowdon from starting his fourth decade as the Federal Member for the vast Territory seat, albeit with a reduced majority. COMMENT by ERWIN CHLANDA. FULL STORY »

Anti-fracking Greens: Are jobs for the dole schemes legal?

2636 George Hanna SM 2

 

A big “no” to fracking tops the list of priorities for the Greens candidate in Lingiari, George Hanna <strong>(pictured)</strong>. He’s even putting anti-fracking candidate Hamish MacFarlane, an independent who is close to 1 Territory, in second place on his how to vote card. This is ahead of Labor’s Warren Snowdon who is giving the Greens his number two slot. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

If the best time for seeing the Member for Lingiari Warren Snowdon in Alice Springs is in election campaigns, that’s perhaps because he is “never at home”: Apart from duties in Canberra, he is getting around the vast electorate, as he has been for three decades. He is deeply familiar with the issues yet has few answers for the electorate’s thorniest problems. He discusses them with ERWIN CHLANDA. FULL STORY »

Local historian and long-time political observer Alex Nelson says the CLP “always emphasised that it has its own identity, a Territory Party, and was not beholden to any organisation outside the Territory.” Meanwhile raised voter enrolments in Alice Springs may impact the outcome in Lingiari, and both Warren Snowdon and Jacinta Price – who apparently aspires to be Central Australia’s answer to Donald Trump – may drive fracking foes to vote for 1 Territory.

Jacinta Price spits dummy

A hysterical dummy spit by Jacinta Price, following publication of a report on Monday critical of her record as a town councillor, is unbecoming of a candidate for a major party in a Federal election. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Jacinta Price: 4 year commitment lasted 18 months

The CLP candidate for Lingiari, as a member of the Town Council, contributed little to the running of a struggling town, her meeting attendance grossly inadequate. And Code of Conduct complaints – all found to have been vexatious or without foundation – that she or people associated with her had apparently lodged against three fellow councillors, had local government teetering on dysfunctionality for months.
