Democrats back Labor into the seat of Ramsay
Christopher steele the leader of the Liberal democratic party is working to
ensure the local independent Mark Aldridge has no chance in taking Labors
safest seat in SA, that of Ramsay.
not only lives outside the electorate, he has no interest in the needs of the
Ramsay constituents, he will erect no vote one posters, because his whole
campaign is reliant on the fact that the Liberal party are not putting up a
candidate, and by submitting “how to
vote cards” that appear to be the Liberal party’s, will gain his party some
preferences of the LDP, are designed to flow through to the Labor party over
the local Independent, based solely on the how to vote cards adorning the words
Liberal in capitals, and produced in the Liberals colour of blue.
be no mention of the LDP’s policys, like that of supporting the sale of Australian land, assets, farms and manufacturing
to overseas interests, or the legalisation of all drugs, or even dare
debate in public various other aspects of the state LDP’s ideal of policy
directives in the local electorate.
candidacy is all about ensuring Labor maintain their strong hold on the area,
with rumours of a move to the Labor party itself for Mr. Steele.
Christopher I doubt these rumours to be true, but then again, the tactics the
LDP are using, go against my knowledge of the party’s ideals, so anything is
with the LDP’s national executive over many years, and having respect for their
executive, it is hard to believe their South Australian state registered party would
stray so far from their parties ideals, and there threats and abusive phone
calls to my family home, came as a surprise.
The LDP how
to vote cards should maintain their logo and colours, and the lack of vote one
posters, seems to ensure any vote they receive, is based on deceiving Liberal
party supporters, an outright attack on democracy.
I sincerely hope
for the sake of my community, that Mr. Steeles attack on the democratic process,
does not affect the Ramsay community’s ability to elect the best
representative, to be the voice of their community.
matters worse is he has used the truth of his use of the Liberal part of his
party’s name to secure well placed preferences from other candidates, without
them knowing he prefers Labor to take the seat, if he can’t, a very sad day for
the people of Ramsay.
I hope the
people of Ramsay take the time to seek the truth, and vote based on the candidates
in the order of their preference, not some dodgy back room deals and a repeat
of the dodgy “how to vote” cards endured during the 2010 election.
Dodgy how to
vote information, and deceitful back room deals have no place in our democratic
process, something I have been fighting to abolish for many years, if the LDP
were serious about representing the Ramsay electorate, they would be running on
their ideals, not sitting back hoping to deceive honest people out of their
people remember this situation for years to come, just as they should remember
Labors shocking attack on democracy in 2010, they do not deserve to use the
name Liberal, or democratic in their name, let alone the chance of the title of
