The FNQ Greens announced their new candidate for loser in the seat of Leichhardt. Cynical? They don't even bother nominating someone with a snowball's chance in hell, which seems odd in this environment where any reasonable off-party candidate might be just what Cairns needs. Think of the attention Cairns would get from the government-of-the-day if we had an Andrew Wilkie or Tony Windsor instead of our Member for Blogs Warren Entsch!
The Greens candidate is Johanna Kloot, a typical greenie hippie societal dropout from Bramston Beach. She has a raft of comments and commentary on her Facebook Page - nothing about the Cairns area, but all just repeated Green Party bullshit.
And in a close campaign, a proper candidate for Leichhardt from the Greens could help tip the seat to the Labor party. So they've pissed away a second chance by preselecting a cipher.
Why do the Greens waste our time? It's disrespectful to Cairns voters, and makes the Green Party all the more irrelevant. They throw this woman at the community as a candidate who has NO record of any community engagement and NO record of public participation, and then expect anyone to vote for her? She likes traveling with her dogs. Big fucking deal. It's a joke.
What kind of idiot would vote for her? Oh, sorry. Yup. A Green.
