Why is she there?
ONE election mystery is the pictures of hopeful politicians that suddenly sprout like weeds on the side of the road.
Voters are not so gullible as to elect a member of parliament for Bundaberg by judging which middle-aged Caucasian head on a stick looks good, rather than examining party policy.
Predictably, the two-headed placard takes this absurdity to another level.
Why is a federal senator attaching herself to a state election?
She is not a candidate. No one can vote for her in this state election.
Doesn’t she trust the local candidate to be xenophobic enough? Is she worried that the actual candidate won’t rant and rave promoting intolerance?
Is she so self-centered as to believe it’s all about her?
We deserve a political party that acknowledges Australia as a land of migrants and descendants of migrants, that challenges divisive bigotry by promoting tolerance and treats voters as competent, intelligent citizens.
Note the two-headed candidates and preference them in last place when you vote. — KERRY BOLAM Bundaberg North
